          No, I do not recommend this product.
          The "button" you need to push is very difficult to use. I have to use two hands to get the button pressed down, then hold it with one hand, and move the other hand to the handle.

          My wife saw this and wanted it for her small sewing gear. The cabinet looks attractive. The latch for the top cover latches so easily, I was concerned that it may not stay secure, but I played with it for some time, and it never gave any indication that it would not hold. The drawers are secured in the cabinet with a flap which very securely locks into place, and the individual drawers also have latches that are robust. It’s not so difficult to unlatch that you would spill the contents (I had one that way years ago).

          The units appear to be very well made. I tested these units out on a 1/8” pipe nipple, which had been in the valve for decades. I did a light tap with a hammer, and applied torque to the easy-out. I thought it would be interesting to see how much torque this unit would take before slipping. I put a torque wrench on it, torqued it to 40 ft-lbs before the nipple split. The easy-out didn’t slip.

          I initially rated this high, before I had a chance to use it. I based that on products I bought a few years earlier. I had the following bad issues with this material.
          1. When I tried to glue this to some sheetrock, it didn't adhere very well, and I saw the back of this material just flaked off where the construction adhesive was applied. The then painted the entire back surface with house paint, let that cure, and glued up another panel. That held.
          2. I needed to drill 1/4" holes to hold shelf brackets. I used some green painter's tape to hold my drilling guide. When I pulled the tape off, a big hunk of the white surface came with it.

          This is a wired security camera, which uses a USB cable for the charger. I’m quite confident the charger and its connection are not weatherproof, and should be plugged to an inside receptacle. I’ve been doing more research on the subject, and see some cameras use a power cord with an end fitting like a mini phone jack (about the same diameter as the cable. The key advantage of the phone jack is that the size hole you need to cut into your house to push the cable through. The USB plug is considerably larger than the phone jack would be, and not near as neat of an installation. This requires a ¾” hole to pass the USB connector through.

          This is a wired security camera, which uses a USB cable for the charger. I’m quite confident the charger and its connection are not weatherproof, and should be plugged to an inside receptacle. I’ve been doing more research on the subject, and see some cameras use a power cord with an end fitting like a mini phone jack (about the same diameter as the cable. The key advantage of the phone jack is that the size hole you need to cut into your house to push the cable through. The USB plug is considerably larger than the phone jack would be, and not near as neat of an installation. This requires a ¾” hole to pass the USB connector through. Also, this unit only has a 3-foot cable, so the installation either needs to be close to the electrical outlet, or buy a cable extender. Some other units use a CAT cable, which has the benefit of not only charging the camera, but also transfer the image hardwire, for faster and clearer connection, and the bulk of that connector would still be smaller than the USB. I also noted on other manufacture’s product, that there is minimum upload speed on your wi-fi to get satisfactory results. I wished this supplier would have included what their minimum requirement is in their literature. They just say be within 30 meters of the router. I was concerned with our application, as we have stucco (with screen reinforcing), which restricts the signal. You can take you laptop to the location you want to have the camera, and run a speed test to see how strong the signal is.
          I thought I was careful enough to order a wireless camera, but got this one instead. I don’t think I’ll be installing this, as I don’t want that big hole in the wall or ceiling of our covered patio. The lower rating is simply due to this being a wired package, where as a non-wired unit would be much nicer.

          Answer: 
          I don't have Samsung equipment, but I suspect it has blue-tooth capability. If it does, then you should have no problem pairing up to this lock. You should be able to go into settings, and see if there is a Blue-tooth App. on your notebook.
           
          Type NM-B (non-metallic-sheathed cable) may be used for both exposed and concealed work in normally dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C (with ampacity limited to that for 60°C conductors) as specified in the NEC 1. NM-B cable is primarily used in residential wiring as branch circuits for outlets, switches and other loads. NM-B cable may be run in air voids of masonry block or tile walls where such walls are not subject to excessive moisture or dampness. Voltage rating for NM-B cable is 600-Volt.

          Answer: 
          If your saw pulls 15 amp (which I expect is correct), then you will want a 20 amp circuit, which requires this I2 gauge wire. I had a table saw this size and used the 20 amp circuit, and would still occasionally trip the circuit.

          I had the same question, but it is not as sensitive to fingerprints as some stainless units. I'm guessing some of the finishes are a patented surface.
