          This mattress arrived rolled up in a UPS shipping box. It was exciting to open it and be cautious when you open the packaging as it expands rapidly! Good quality construction at first glance and no reason to doubt the construction in the weeks that we have used it. The mattress itself is comfortable and is different in feel over a traditional spring mattress. My family has their favorite but it is about split between the new and old mattresses. We tested our on a double trundle bed and my kids liked both mattresses and describe the new hybrid mattress like sleeping on a memory foam pillow.

We tested our on a double trundle bed and my kids liked both mattresses and describe the new hybrid mattress like sleeping on a memory foam pillow. I did not notice the "cooling" effect like I have on certain pillows with similar named features and neither did my kids. This is a thick mattress and in our case of the trundle where this is the lower mattress, the thinner size would have been ideal over the thicker one. Read Less

I did think there was a little too much dirt and watering the kit makes a mess every time because the pile is taller than the ridge of the planter. No big deal since my kit is outside. Overall, I like it and the sprouts are about 2" high now. Each looks a little different from the other pods but I actually have no idea what I am growing since they aren't labeled. Interesting idea, good for kids and experimenting with growing stuff, not very specific on what you are growing (and that drives me a little bonkers) and a little too much dirt that is expected to be poured into the planter (use a little less than the whole bag to keep things tidy). Nice touch that the system texts you once in a while to remind you to water the plants and to place them outside of where to place them if they are inside. Read Less

          This is my very first cut-resist glove that I am using for oyster picking and shucking. My impressions on this is that I keep much on my hand dexterity and the grips are fantastic for short term use. The gloves provide good protection from the sharp, barnacles and shells of the oysters and added protection from the knives for kitchen prep of meals. On top of that, they are heat resistant and cold-water machine washable. Food grade means no icky contamination of food. These are not very good for punctures, so thorns or tips of the shucking knife still poke through. heavily used in my kitchen and great for sorting the oysters. My size is typically "medium" and the medium sized gloves fit Read More

          This AC unit is up to the challenge to cool a large room. It is on wheels and can be pushed into other rooms as needed and the window connection has vast adjustability to work with many window sizes. What I like was the clean design and remote control. The fan is very powerful and when it isn't on, and the louvers are designed to fold down to keep dust and dirt from entering into the unit from the top. I tested this in a larger space of 1200 sq ft apartment with all bedroom doors open in 80 degrees with partial sun in the windows. I found the main room was cooled and the auxiliary rooms were only slightly cooled and would benefit from an open window. In a single large room, it will cool Read More

I found the main room was cooled and the auxiliary rooms were only slightly cooled and would benefit from an open window. In a single large room, it will cool nicely! What I was not impressed with were the added bulk of the rear-facing exhaust that creates a lot of extra space, The very loud fan with speed that was pretty powerful, it would be hard to have a conversation or watch TV on the lowest fan setting. The louvers that did fold themselves down get stuck in the open position. Remote shows icons that do not correlate to features on this AC unit. Cools well but average quality with some quirks to work around. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Install, Stylish

          This mini fridge has performed as expected in keeping my canned and bottled beverages cold. I'm happy with this unit in the garage but would not like it in an area that I wanted to concentrate since the unit makes an odd faint horn sound a few minutes into the compressor running. This is also not a show piece since fingerprints show easily on the door and the energy star sticker is very hard to remove without sticker remover. The pesky energy star sticker was placed right under the logo on the door and now has peeled corners from my fingernails working at the sticker.
