          I planned on replacing my existing white undercabinet lights I have above my bar with these 'pucks' so that I could change the color for different moods or for different holidays. The problem with these is that once you cut the power to them via a switch and then switch the power back on, you have to turn them on again via the remote, which defeats the purpose of having a switch in the first place. They would have been 5 stars if not for this issue, because they look nice, mount easily and put out a good amount of light. However, since this doesn't work, I can't use them for this purpose and will have to find another use for them...and I took a star off my rating.

          Another thing I didn't love was the 'ribbon' connection from one light to the next. I would have preferred a standard wire as it's easier to hide. Yes, a ribbon lies flat against the cabinet, but when you have excess cable, there isn't an easy way to 'bunch it' and hide it from view and it makes it harder to feed through holes in the cabinet (to power source or to another cabinet). That's not a big deal though, but worth noting for those planning to install under cabinets. It does let you add multiple strings together though.
          All lights are set to the same color, so you can't make each puck a different color. A holiday theme option would have been another great feature (red/green, red/white/blue, etc...).
          I think it is a nice product, but with a few design modifications it could have been a great product. There are still many uses for it, but I wouldn't consider it for undercabinet lighting unless you are comfortable using the remote to turn them off and on each time...that was a deal breaker for me.

          The USB nightlight is great for an area were you have several devices to charge, yet have limited outlets (bathroom, desk area, utility room, basement, etc...) I purchased a couple extras for different areas of the house...specifically my finished basement that has no windows. I also like that it doesn't cover up both outlets when used. It provides ample light and comes on automatically when it is dark. It's LED so it doesn't get hot, use a lot of power and should last a long time.

          These are stylish and comfortable gloves. Although the size is 'Extra Large', they fit snug, but not too tight. They are not big and bulky like some landscape gloves, which allows you to pick up things and control things (like weedeater or clippers) easily. The palm is well padded. I tested them by grabbing my rose bush with them, which I could barely feel the thorns in the fingers (not as padded as palms, but the thorn did not come all the way through and price my fingers) and could not feel them at all in the palms. They passed the test, because I hate working with gloves that don't protect my hands from prickers and thorns. They are not water proof, but don't absorb water instantly Read More

          The seat was incredibly easy to install, I replaced the old one in about 30 minutes. All of the required hardware is included, all you need is a screwdriver and (maybe) an adjustable wrench (don’t overtighten). It is important to note that you do need to have an electrical outlet nearby. I installed a new one a few weeks ago knowing that I was getting this.
          The seat itself is comfortable, but you do lose some sitting room and the opening is smaller compared to the regular toilet seat it replaced, because the back part of the seat that houses the electronics and such take up some of the space. It is also simple to use, there are two buttons on left that toggle through low, medium and off Read More

          The seat itself is comfortable, but you do lose some sitting room and the opening is smaller compared to the regular toilet seat it replaced, because the back part of the seat that houses the electronics and such take up some of the space. It is also simple to use, there are two buttons on left that toggle through low, medium and off settings for the heated seat temperature and water temperature. The dial on the right controls the water flow and ‘aim’ (forwards for front, back for rear and center for ‘off’). The flow isn’t overpowering, but enough to get you clean, and the water warms almost instantly. The sprayer itself is contained when not it use and has a self cleaning system, while the exterior doesn’t appear to be any more difficult to clean than any other seat. It also has a light that automatically illuminates for nighttime visits. My only complaint would be that the cord could be a little longer. I was able to reach mine on the opposite side, but an extra foot or two would’ve been nice so I could tuck it away better.
          In summary, it may seem a little expensive at first, but when you consider what you pay for a night or two at a fancy hotel compared to something like this that will last you for years of use, I think it is totally worth it. It will also save you money on toilet paper (although you’ll still need some to dry off) and have less impact on your pipes and the environment. It will get you cleaner and the seat heater and warm water are an added comfort. Go ahead and get one…your posterior will thank you later. Read Less

          I absolutely love this quilt. I like the geometric pattern, the sewn edges, feel and quality. It isn't incredibly thick or heavy like some quilts, but it is well made with tight stitching and good material. This quilt is heavy enough to go on a bed (with included shams) or can be used as a blanket to bundle up under on the couch on a chilly night. It looks great, feels soft and is a nice quality (albeit, a bit lighter, but not cheap feeling) quilt. It is also machine washable (cold / gentle cycle).

          Answer: 
          It's probably not recommended, but if your tile is flat and you use a thick enough underlayment, you can probably get away with it if you don't want to tear out your bathroom floor. It does float over the existing floor, so no nails or staples are required.
