          The Quadrant is a fashion statement with a function. With its finger flip, the blade is easily deployed and held in place with a sturdy frame lock. The unique bamboo handle gives this knife a stand-out look that's sure to catch anyone's eye.

          This review is for the Gerber Quadrant folding knife. I really like this knife, it's perfect.
          It has a nice bamboo handle, lever to help me close it, and it locks it place when you open it all the way. Additionally, the lever that helps you close the knife also protects my fingers from slipping too far forward and getting cut when the knife is locked open.
          This knife is sharp. Right out of the package, I was able to hold up a piece of paper and cut it. This knife could probably be used as a straight blade razor (which it kind of looks like).

          The Jukebox is a modern twist to an old school classic. Paying homage to the knives used by barbers with an everyday carry appeal, this knife leaves an impression with a full edge blade that is easily deployed for the total EDC package. An extended tang finger flipper is uniquely designed for easy deployment without sacrificing design.

          This review is for the Gerber Jukebox folding knife. It's a bit pricey, but it's a Gerber so you know you're getting quality.
          Right out of the box I can say that this knife is sharp; I was able to cut a piece of paper by just holding it up and running the blade against it. This is both a plus and a minus.
          It's a compact knife that you will barely feel if you have it clipped to your pants. The handle is just small enough for me that with one hand it's difficult to take an open blade, push the lock aside, and to close it without cutting myself. I have to close it slowly and pay attention while I'm doing it. Opening it isn't as bad, but still seems dangerous. Perhaps as I carry this knife Read More

I have to close it slowly and pay attention while I'm doing it. Opening it isn't as bad, but still seems dangerous. Perhaps as I carry this knife more often, I'll get better at opening and closing it.
          Other than paying attention when opening or closing the knife, it's great. As stated above, it's probably sharp enough to use as a straight razor (and kind of looks like one too). It's small, portable, and works well. Though it is small, once locked open or closed, it fits perfectly in my hand, and the handle looks great, and functions well. Read Less

          Ideal for small, modern rooms with low ceilings, the Minimums flush mount fan is available in 3 finishes. This fan features a 3-speed WhisperWind motor to deliver powerful, efficient airflow along with an integrated, energy-efficient LED light so there's no need to replace the light bulbs. And with the included handheld remote, it's easy to control the dimmable light and fan speeds.

          This review is for the Hunter Minimus 44 inch ceiling fan.
          First off, it's a flush mount fan, there are no down rods included with this fan, but we specifically chose this fan for that purpose. Our ceilings are 8 foot, and flush mount fans offer more head space. Also convenient is that the light for this fan is a flush plastic ring of LED circuits, so that doesn't bring the fan any lower.
          This fan only has 3 blades that are about 18 inches in length each. Including the center hub that brings the diameter of the fan to 44 inches. This is perfect for the smaller type rooms that we'll be installing this fan in. Also the fan blades are reversible, one side is matte black, the other side is Read More

          This fan only has 3 blades that are about 18 inches in length each. Including the center hub that brings the diameter of the fan to 44 inches. This is perfect for the smaller type rooms that we'll be installing this fan in. Also the fan blades are reversible, one side is matte black, the other side is wood grain. If you have this fan in several rooms that adds a little differentiation.
          This fan also comes with a remote control that can be used to turn the fan on, off, adjust the speed, and adjust the direction (this is another perk, to reverse most fans, you usually need to flip a switch on the fan motor - this one can be done from the remote), and the light can be turned on, off, and dimmed.
          Finally, the installation instructions were pretty thorough, with well written wording, along with images. That being said, the installation of this fan will be a new fan installation, and not a replacement, so we'll be having our contractor do the work for us to make sure everything is done right and up to code.

          This is the matte black, 52-inch, indoor/outdoor, remote control ceiling fan.
          The matte black color will match our room well. The fan blades do not have a different color on the other side, so it's matte black on both sides of the fan blades. It would have been nice to have a different color choice on the other side of the fan blades.
          The box and online posting show different down rod lengths, but from what I saw in the instructions and in the box, there is only one down rod length option of about 6 inches. That's fine for us, but I thought the box and online posting were a little miss-leading (maybe you can order longer down-rods, but I don't see any other option in the box).

          This fan is remote controlled, so once it's installed, you can control the dimmable-light and the fan speed from anywhere in the room. As is the case with most fans, to reverse the motor, there is a switch on the fan itself.
          The light for this fan is an integrated LED, so there is no bulb to replace. This gives the fan a little more head clearance, and should make for a much longer lasting light.
          The installation of this fan does not seem any more difficult than any other fans I've installed, and the instructions appear to be written well, but we're going to have this fan installed by our contractor when the weather breaks.
          For the price we thought this was a good fan. Read Less

          This standard HDX replacement refrigerator water filter fits in place of Samsung filter model HAF-CINS. Certified against NSF/ANSI 42 for the reduction of Chlorine taste and odor to ensure high quality and performance. This high quality economical filter will deliver fresh, crisp, clean tasting water and ice cubes that you can trust for your family. Engineered with the power of 0.5 Micron coconut shell carbon block, this filter provides tremendous capacity to reduce impurities, sediment and rust that may be present in your drinking water. The carbon block has millions of active sites on its surface and within the structure which can absorb impurities like a sponge and can hold other types of impurities on its surface like a magnet. Additionally, this filter can catalytically breakdown other impurities similar to the way a catalytic converter works in your automobile. These processes ensure that you are receiving the cleanest and best tasting water possible for you and your family. Easy DIY installation filter with a life capacity of 300 Gal. or 6 months, whichever precedes. Using this filter will replace 1500 water bottles reducing the amount of plastic waste in our landfills. This filter fits the following Samsung Filter models: HAF-CINS, HAF-CIN, DA29-00020A, DA29-00020B, 04609101000, 09101, 46-9101, 469101, 9101, DA-97-08006A, DA-97-08006A-B, DA-97-08006B, DA29-00019A, DA2900019A, DA2900020A, DA2900020B, DA97-08006A-B, HAF-CIN-EXP, HAF-CINEXP, HAFCIN.

          This is a water filter replacement for our Samsung refrigerator. It's a water filter, so I'm not sure why there would be an Energy Efficiency rating, so I gave it an average rating.
          It fit our refrigerator as well as the factory replacements at a fraction of the cost. It's a third stage filter in our house, so we're not relying on it to filter everything out, just what the sediment, and carbon filters miss. This one seems to do the job. It seems to be a little looser than the original factory filter, but it does not leak, it works as expected, and no one really touches the filter anyway, so that's not an issue for us.

          We ordered this online, and if anything, I would say they over packaged it. It came in a package the size of a big shoe box, and was filled with air cushions. These filters aren't very fragile from what I can tell, but I'm happy that they tried to protect it anyway. I would have given them a bad review if it arrived damaged. Read Less
