          Overall a great unit.
          Came packed with everything you could possibly need to install the system. Set-up was easy and it’s designed to be done by a non-tech individual. You don’t need to be any kind of computer or installation genius to install this system.
          My system however was damaged in shipment; I will say that if you need to contact their tech department e-mail is the way to go. When I tried calling I was 4th in line and was told there was a 30 minute wait. I got an email response in less than 2 hours. After the technician suggested a few tests, we were able to determine the unit was damaged and he sent me a new unit right away and a label to return the defective unit via UPS.

          The unit came and I had all my cables run and camera’s plugged in and it was ready to go. Total set up time including the internet access for the unit so I could view it from my cell phone probably took 15-20 minutes.
          The cameras have great clarity, the unit has a large recording capacity and a USB port on the front so you can offload any incidents and give copies to police or insurance company etc..
          This system is a great buy, it’s expandable to add a total of 9 cameras. I have it hooked up to a 24” 1080 flat screen HDTV and between the cameras and the monitor I can easily monitor my 84 year old neighbor’s house across the street and keep an eye on her,, She feels good about that. This is definitely a quality item that will last a long time and is built to be advanced in the future if necessary. Read Less

          It was cold out and I still wanted to test this gun, so I decided to re-roof my storage shed with leftover shingles from the house so they would match. The roof was a little less than 2 square’s.(about 180 sq.ft.)
          Total time for the prep, roof and cleanup was less than 3 hours, including going in the house to get another cup of hot coffee,
          This is a nice roofing nailer, Came well packed in the box so no damage was done to the unit, also included safety goggles and the allen wrench for adjusting. The box also contained any info you need for correct nails and sizes. I promptly cut out the chart so it could be thumbtacked to my shed wall where I will keep the gun. I also like to use my phone Read More

I also like to use my phone and take pics of any info like this for my tools so I always have it with me.
          The gun loaded easily, fed well, drove nails like it was designed to and operated flawlessly for the small amount of time it took to re-roof the shed.
          The aspect I liked best about the gun was stability, as someone else mentioned it gives you a nice steady platform for pushing yourself to get up making it much easier. Overall it is a well designed and well executed product that feels and looks like it will provide years of service to any DIYer or PRO. Even loaded the gun was well balanced and lighter to use than others I’ve owned and at a fair price for something I think will last a very long time. Read Less

          This is a Cool Item, I installed the shower head in less than 3 minutes. A little teflon tape and a pair of pliers is all you need. I always wrap a rag around the showerhead so the pliers dont scratch them. There is no additional connections to make. This thing makes its own electricity, The colors change by themselves so all you have to do is turn on the water. A great way to get your younger kids to take a shower.There is enough light you can actually take a shower with the lights off at night. Very cool item and would reccomend to anyone who wants to add a little fun to their shower.....

          I have used the Goof Off spray before with great results, the wipes are just as good, If not BETTER.. You can see the before and after in the pictures attached,. But using words, I will say where the spray is great for use on surfaces like brick and concrete, the wipes work well on smooth surfaces. there is no mess, no residue... Just wipe away and depending on what your removing is how much pressure you'll need to apply.. Great for the residue from old decals and stickers, as well as Sharpie pen that was used on a dry erase board. Also woorks great on freshly dried Latex paint that I dripped on the new floor. This is a great product at a great price that you will be extremely pleased Read More

          This is a NICE 7 piece set… 1 Table and 6 chairs. The chairs are very comfortable and fit well and look great with the table with a nice bamboo look. They are very easy to assemble, Comes complete with all screws, wrenches and fasteners required to put it together, they come sealed in a nice blister pack so nothing gets lost. The whole table and chairs took less than an hour to assemble. The powder coated aluminum frames assure long rust and chip free life. The powder coating also prevents scratching as well.
          The chairs have a nice cushion and are very soft where it counts and the additional lumbar cushions help your back. The tabletop is tempered glass for strength and safety. In summary,

          A gentle electric radiant heat system designed specifically for dry installation under floating wood and laminate floors. A low profile, line voltage system, it features gradual warmth from low wattage resistance heating of ultra-thin, flexible radiant heat film. Installed easily over a subfloor or over an acoustic/insulating underlayment as part of the overall floor assembly, it uses just 12-Watt per square foot to gently raise the temperature of the floor, conforming to the warranty requirements of many floating floors. The system, which sports an impressive 99% efficiency, includes temperature limiting properties so the film does not overheat. Its available in four convenient rollout mat sizes that will accommodate most any layout. Each mat has wires pre-attached for ease of installation.

          Answer: 
          the heater itself does not have a built in GFCI. Your power source that's feeding it, whether your wiring it to an existing circuit or installing a new line should either have a GFCI breaker installed on it or most bathrooms are now required by code to have GFCI receptacles in them and you can safely take power from that if the circuit is not already overloaded, If you don't have GFCI in your bathroom Read More

          Yes they will, the 2 cameras dont draw a lot of amps/volts, there should be more than ample power on a cigarette lighter circuit. You could probably run 5 or 6 of them off the same plugs if you wanted to for some reason.

          not unless you put in a 110 volt ac converter, then you would have to calculate the wattage and see if your system had enough power to run it.
