          The Ferris faucet displays a modern but soft design by projecting curves into the typical sleek, hard-edge motif of modern aesthetics. The precise aesthetic is defined by clean, horizontal lines while the contrasting subtle curves offer balance. The footprint of Ferris is subtle and combined with the thin profile of the spout this faucet may be the perfect design for most modern spaces. Color: Spot Defense Brushed Nickel.

          Very nice faucet that installs just like any of the other single stem ones out on the market. Pfister even included the wide cover plate so if you are replacing a wider three-hole faucet (like I am) you will have a matching cover plate. My favorite part about this faucet combo isn't even the faucet itself. It's the sink stopper. Due to the sleek design of this faucet Pfister didn't put one of those pull knobs on the back of it for opening and closing the sink stopper. Instead you just push down on the stopper and it will pop open or closed. Very cool, I just hope it will last.
          Pros: Looks Great, Modern, Stylish, sink stopper

          This classically styled wall mount lantern from Home Decorators Collection is sure to brighten the look of any home. The hand applied black finish with gold highlights will illuminate as well as decorate. The clear seeded glass augments the light from the 100-Watt bulb (not included). Die-cast aluminum construction ensures long-lasting beauty and durability.

          Oh my goodness this light is HUGE. I didn't realize how large it was until I took it out of the box. There are three different sizes to choose from, so choose wisely. This lantern style light would be a good size for a VERY large home, or up on high on a light pole. We used it to replace the light fixture next to our garage because it is a larger door and so doesn't look quite so out of place. I'm not sure if we're going to keep it though. This looks like it may have been an oopsie of a selection.

          Oh my goodness this light is HUGE. I didn't realize how large it was until I took it out of the box. There are three different sizes to choose from, so choose wisely.

We used it to replace the light fixture next to our garage because it is a larger door and so doesn't look quite so out of place. I'm not sure if we're going to keep it though. This looks like it may have been an oopsie of a selection.
          Ok so aside from the size of the light the construction of the light is fine. It is dead easy to install and doesn't require any special tools. I'm not exactly sure how the ground wires are supposed to be attached though because the instructions do a poor job of explaining it. There is a single ground lug screw on the mounting bracket but there are two ground wires, one for the light and one coming from the house. I don't think you're ever supposed to put two ground wires on the same screw. So, I wire nutted the ground wires together and then wrapped the house ground around the ground screw lug. Probably not the correct way of doing it but it works.
          Also, like me, you might need to replace the backer board that sits between the light and the house. Mine looks a bit funky right now.

          Always been a fan of top load washers, LG brings great wash performance, time-saving, and-energy-saving innovations to the classic top load washer design. Thanks to the LG Direct Drive Motor rotating independently from the tub mechanism, they can spin in different directions and create a powerful water flow. That means an enhanced but gentler clean with more room to do laundry in fewer loads. Color: Graphite Steel.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          There is NO Wifi capability built in to this unit. I just want to say this right at the beginning of my review because I fully expected this unit to have Wifi capability. I believe the Home Depot website had this mistakenly listed as a feature and it has since been removed. Also, there is no LG Tag-On technology included. At the time I am writing this the Home Depot website has this included as part of the product description "What if you could customize your washer or dryer so it only has the cycles you want, LGs NFC Tag-On technology lets you download new cycles directly from your Android smartphone.

Simply download the app, select your new cycle and touch, or tag, your LG appliance to download your selection. What else can NFC Tag-On do, From one-touch cycle options that help you choose the right setting to instant solutions to your troubleshooting questions...". This is FALSE, this model does not have Wifi or any kind of NFC tag programming capability. There is, however, a "smart diagnosis" feature but it's more of just a gimmick that in the event of a mechanical failure, it lets the dryer talk to your smartphone through high pitched sounds. So, instead of the error code being displayed on the LED panel it would come up on your phone and let you get more information. For the amount of time it takes to download the app, create an account, and add your dryer you could have read an error code off the panel and looked it up online. I spent a solid 45 minutes trying to figure out how to get the Wifi working because it doesn't exist.
          Aside from the huge "no wifi" let down this is a perfectly functional washing machine. You'll find most of your standard wash settings, including one for bedding that my wife was quite happy about. It uses a large knob to select the cycle and then a capacitive touch panel to fine tune the wash cycle. The LED cycle countdown is large and bright making it easy to read from a distance. This model is advertised as having a "Graphite Steel" finish. It's literally just a steel exterior with a dark silver epoxy paint finish. Nothing fancy here. It's the same appliance epoxy you find on all appliances. The finish quality is about average. There are a few small imperfections left over from the steel stamping and epoxying process but nothing you would see unless you are looking for them. The few that I found were so minor I didn't even bother taking pictures for the review.
          The lid opens nice and high so getting clothes in and out is easy though it is tinted a bit too dark for my liking, seeing inside is difficult. I don't like that the detergent tray retains quite a bit of water after the wash cycle completes. Even though this is a top loader unit I leave the lid open to let residual moisture dry out.
          I like how lightweight this unit is. Two people can easily lift it up out of the leak tray to clean or service it.
          I also like the jungle it plays when a load of laundry has finished. It's just loud enough to hear from our living room downstairs but not enough to disturb people sleeping. We've had it for a couple of weeks now and with seven people currently in our house it has been getting used three or four times a day. Performance has been just fine. Clothes have been coming out clean.
          Overall, a perfectly adequate washing machine but there is nothing about it that sets apart from the others.

          Do laundry a little less often. With 7.3 cu. ft. of capacity, this dryer handles really large loads. Saving you time and energy. LG Sensor Dry system measures the amount of moisture levels throughout the cycle and automatically adjusts the drying time. One touch says it all: perfectly dry clothes. Color: Graphite Steel.

The few that I found were so minor I didn't even bother taking pictures for the review.
          The door only opens downward 40 degrees which isn't very far. The swing down configuration is nice because you can lift clothes out of your washing machine and just drop them into the dryer and the door without them going on the floor. Luckily, the door will swing open to the left or right if you pull on it without using the latch. Fro the factory mine came with the door swinging to the right which I will need to reverse.
          Drying time is about what I would have expected, however, we are finding that with the "Dry Level" setting set to Normal that our clothes are still damp. We have it set to "Very" now which seems to get them dryer. While drying it is sufficiently quiet. Our laundry room is upstairs and it can be used at night without disturbing anyone.
          One minor annoyance I'm finding with this dryer is that it doesn't make any kind of sound when it has finished drying, it just shuts off. Also, there is no light inside to help you see if you're searching for a particular garment. We've had it for a couple of weeks now and with seven people currently in our house it has been getting used three or four times a day. I was told when it was delivered that there might be a slight smell of burning oil when first used. I don't smell oil but I DO smell what seems to be burning electronics or electrical. I've been keeping a close eye on it.
          Overall, a nice dryer but there is nothing about it that sets apart from the others. In the case of this dryer I feel like you're really just paying for the LG name.

          This is my second faucet made by ANZZI and probably the fifth or sixth one I've installed. I'll start off with the things that I like about it. The faucet itself is very solid. When you pick it up out of the box it has quite bit of heft to it and it doesn't flex and bend. The neck swivels 360 degrees but it has very little play in it. The sprayer mode can be switched from vegetable sprayer to regular faucet output with the push button that is easy to manipulate.

          This is my second faucet made by ANZZI and probably the fifth or sixth one I've installed. I'll start off with the things that I like about it. The faucet itself is very solid. When you pick it up out of the box it has quite bit of heft to it and it doesn't flex and bend. The neck swivels 360 degrees but it has very little play in it. The sprayer mode can be switched from vegetable sprayer to regular faucet output with the push button that is easy to manipulate. The lever to control the water flow and temperature moves very smoothly and stays where you put it. ANZZI even includes a small allen wrench in case you want to remove the handle assembly. There's no need to remove the handle during installation though.
          Now on to the things that I think can be improved upon. The instructions seem to have been written by someone whose native tongue is not English. Faucets tend to be very simple to install so having easy to follow instructions isn't a necessity but if you're never installed a faucet before you'll want something easy to follow. Also, in the directions, they show the push button to change the water flow as being on the front of the nozzle. The nozzle can only be reinstalled into the neck of the faucet in one direction so it seems someone drew it wrong. 
          As far as installation goes, these single hole goose neck faucets with the extending sprayer are always a pain to put in because the hot/cold water supply lines have to go through that single hole, along with the hose that supplies the goose neck. And then on top of that you need some way of securing it to the counter-top. The hot and cold water supply lines were the worst. ANZZI says to attach them after the faucet has been installed on the counter top but I found it basically impossible to reach around the back of the sink and the garbage disposal to get them in. The two supply lines each have two rubber o-rings that have to be pushed in and then the entire thing rotated to screw it in. I had to attach the lines to the faucet before mounting it, and even then on the cold water line the second o-ring is squishing out of the fitting. I used a little bit of dish soap which made things infinitely easier to put together but even so, that o-ring did not want to stay in place. So far no leaks though.
          The threaded shaft that is used to secure the faucet to the counter-top has a very fine thread so it takes a LONG time to tighten it by hand. If this could be switched to a courser thread it would make life so much easier.
          I rate the ease of installation of this faucet at about 2 out of 5 stars. The hot and cold water supply lines were the worst and I worry about the cold water line eventually leaking.
