          I received my Smart Plug-In Lamp Dimmer by HALO Home. After reading the instructions I downloaded the free HALO Home mobile app which was pretty easy to do. We have a lamp in our living room so we could try it out. It worked pretty good turning the lamp on and off. I couldn't get it to dim, I think I might need a different type bulb in the lamp to make it dim. Also, you need to be close to the device in order to open the app. It looks like there are many other items HALO sells for your home. I'm not sure if I want to spend money to get more of there products yet. I will need to do some research first.
          Pros: Functional, Nice Design, Unique
          Cons: cost of other optional upgraged items

          The Samantha 3-Light 60-Watt Brass Finish Integrated Up and Down LED Chandelier combines both minimalist and traditional flair, resulting in a dazzling centerpiece. Double-glassed candles balance on rich metal framework, offering a warm, illuminating glow with both up and down lights. With included hardware for easy installation, this decorative piece easily adds charm to any room.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I received my Samantha 18 in. 3-Light 60-Watt LED Brass Chandelier. It was packaged really well so there was no shipping damage. It came with good instructions that were easy to follow. Some of the holes did not line up very well. So the screws will not fit into the countersink properly. Also the fit of the parts aren't cut very square & doesn't look very good. The instructions said you can adjust it to the desired length by removing chain links. When I removed the chain links the cord was way too long. It turned into quite a project. I had to shorten the wiring. Just remember if you order this item no bulbs come with it. I would not recommend this product.
          Pros: Unique
          Cons: Difficult to Assemble, poor quality, holes don't line up very well

          When your eyes require reading materials to be held further away to focus or more light to see clearly, it is time to purchase reading glasses. Other indicators may be blurred vision at normal distance reading, headaches or tired eyes after working. Magnifeye reading glasses provide superb optical clarity. These multi-pack readers are a great value, offering high quality for a low price.

          I received my Reading Glasses Sport Gray 1.25 Magnification. I was excited to try them out. These are some great looking glasses. They sure make it easier to read some of the small print. They feel good on my head too. It will be nice to have them in my shop when I work on some of my hobbies. These are a great value. I will be using them a lot when I'm working in small projects.

          This decorative rail with three coat and hat hooks is versatile enough to hold a wide variety of items both large and small. Use it for your coats, hats, handbags, umbrellas, towels, or robes. This casual design integrates well into any room and is a great way to create stylish storage.

          I received our Ruavista 18 in. Gray and Soft Iron Hook Rack. It looks very nice. I will be hanging it up when my wife figures out a spot for it. The hook rack comes with great instructions. Also it comes with hardware to mount it to a wall. It will be great to hang coats, hats & backpacks on. The weight capacity is 35 pounds when mounted into solid wood studs or when wall anchors are used. I think anyone would be happy with this in their home.

          I received my LOCK-ON 20 in. All Surface Broom Head. This is a great replacement for my wore out shop broom. With the 2 types of bristles it works a lot better than my old broom. It says to attach with the Unger LOCK-ON system for a spin-free experience or use with threaded pole but I couldn't find one at any of our local stores. So I just used my old broom handle. It looks like it's made with some quality so it should last a long time.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight
          Cons: couldn't find the proper handle

          The Leviton Decora wall switch occupancy sensor is the ideal energy-saving choice to provide automatic (auto on/off and manual on/auto off) lighting control in a variety of commercial and residential applications, including offices, conference rooms, multimedia rooms, child-care centers, and more. The ODS10 is the perfect solution for controlling a wide variety of load types. It features a low-profile digital design and vandal-resistant PIR lens.

          Tap your portable Weber gas grill into a large-capacity fuel source with this 6 ft. adapter hose. It connects a Q-series or Gas Go-Anywhere grill to a standard 20 lb. liquid propane tank for extended-duration cooking. Give your tabletop grill a big-time hookup with this handy adapter tube.

          Answer: 
          Thats a good question. We have this fan & it works great. It moves a lot of air & is pretty quiet too. It seems like someone made a mistake on the webpage for the fan. Go to your Home Depot & ask one of the employees. They are very helpful. If I had the box it came in the correct CFM might be on it.
