Review - BLACK + DECKER CHV1410L 16V Cordless Lithium Hand Vac


I ordered this to replace an old small basic Black & Decker. I have always liked having a dust-buster around for quick vacuuming - it can be a pain to pull out the big vacuum for small jobs. I like the attachment functionality.  The brush and tube extension is now built into the device instead of coming as separate pieces. I also like the increase in suction power. Besides, the dustbin can be quickly emptied from the front by removing the duct or completely detached for more thorough cleaning.

Review - Dropcam/Nest Cam HD Wi-Fi Wireless Video Monitoring Camera



I've used various home monitoring systems over the past few years, but no camera has come close to the quality and ease of setup as the Dropcam HD.

Bissell PowerFresh Steam Mop


I was debating whether or not to get a steam mop, but I took a chance and got this one last month. It seemed like the nicest one that would fit into my budget, and I'm very happy with this product. I have 2 dogs, one is old and has frequent accidents in the house. I wanted something that I could use to clean up these messes quickly, and without putting harsh chemicals on the tile.

Black and Decker 40V Max Lithium String Trimmer


I previously had a plug in string trimmer, which was quiet but lacked power and had the cord to drag around. I upgraded to a gas powered model a few years ago, which gave me power and no cord, but came with the cost of being hard starting, loud, smelly, and a lot of arm numbing vibration. I got this string trimmer after a lot of research and have found it to be absolutely fantastic so far.

Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor - My Fitness Companion


I purchased this after working out for more than a year at least three days a week. I was leaving the gym tired-and-sweaty, but it seemed things had plateaued. I decided on this watch because of the reviews, price, and the consumer-replaceable battery.

TaoTronics® Elune TT-DL01 Dimmable LED Desk Lamp


I needed a new lamp to replace a fluorescent desk lamp that got broken. I purchased the TaoTronics Dimmable LED Desk Lamp due to my coworker's strong recommendation. To be honest, I was kind of skeptical in the beginning, although the lamp in the online pictures looks stylish and elegant.

truMedic TENS Unit Electronic Pulse Massager

I purchased this unit to help with my chronic lower back problems. I heard about it from a co-worker, and saw the outstanding reviews online, then I decided to give it a try although I was still skeptical.

Fujitsu Image Scanner ScanSnap iX500 for PC/Mac/Mobile

I bought and used a dozen low end small buisness scanners over the years. It was always frustratingly slow and easy to get paper jam when you had a stack of papers to scan. After thoroughly researching online, I purchased this for my home office to be connected to my MacBook, so that I can perform scans for documents and paperwork to reduce desk clutter efficiently.  I have used it for a couple of months now, and it far exceeds my expectations.

Soyajoy G4 Soy Milk Maker - Newest Model for Making Milks From Beans, Almond, Hemp, and Others



I bought this Soymilk Machine after buying 2-3 liters of soymilk at the supermarket and randomly wondering how much it would cost to produce it myself; needless to say the markup for organic soymilk is bombastic and absurd.
