          This is a great LED under cabinet light, and a very good value for the price. The only weakness is the poorly designed mounting brackets with tiny poor quality screws.
          This LED light has two brightness levels and 3 color temperature settings, which makes it pretty versatile for different installations.
          The 24 in length worked great for my providing light under my kitchen cabinets, replacing an old LED light. I set the light on the low setting at 3000K, and it produces plenty of light for under my cabinet, providing more light over a larger area than the old light I replaced.

          Two things to consider with this light.
          First, the power cord must attach on the right side of the light (when undermounted with the light element facing you). In my case, the power source was on the left, so I had to tuck the cord behind the light all the way to the right side. Not a big deal, but just be prepared for that. If you are linking multiple lights together, the included linking cord attaches to the left side of the light, and feeds power to the right side of the next light.
          I only needed a single light, but the linking feature is great for longer runs.
          Second, the plastic mounting brackets and screws are terrible. When I tried to mount one of the brackets with the tiny supplied screws, the screw head sheared off. I then tried pre-drilling a hole for the second screw and gently driving the screw, but the second screw head sheared off as well. I tried using the small screws for euro style hinges, but those were too large, preventing the clips from holding the light securely. I gave up on the clips and used hot glue to mount the light under my cabinet, which worked perfectly fine.
          The light has worked great so far and was a nice upgrade for my kitchen. Read Less

          These are high quality, very nice cotton sheets. I like the gray color and the damask design, and the sheets are a nice medium weight.
          Fresh out of the package, the sheets are gorgeous, super smooth, with a nice sheen. But just be aware that after they are laundered, they will obviously not look as nice without being ironed. I'm not one to iron my sheets, so I'm perfectly fine with some wrinkles.
          The fitted sheet is very deep, easily covering my standard (non-pillow top) mattress with a 3" memory foam topper, with room to spare. The flat sheet provides full coverage, even when tucked in.
          Very nice sheets!

          This is a fantastic, compact "power dock". It works perfectly for me, except for one minor flaw that I'm willing to tolerate.
          I charge my phone, fitness tracker, kindle, and iPad in the nightstand by my bed, and have a lamp and a cordless phone on the nightstand. Previously, this required a small power strip plus an extra extension cord, so that I could plug in the lamp, phone, and several USB charging devices. It was a mess, and I had a pile of cords attached to the back of my nightstand.

Previously, this required a small power strip plus an extra extension cord, so that I could plug in the lamp, phone, and several USB charging devices. It was a mess, and I had a pile of cords attached to the back of my nightstand.
          This single "power dock" provides 3 grounded outlets that just barely fit the 3 plugs I need to use, and the four USB cables I need for charging. It is an absolutely perfect fit for my needs and my nightstand. I was able to replace a pile of cords and USB chargers with this single power dock.
          I used a Klein ET910 USB Tester on all four of the USB ports, and was surprised to see that all four ports delivered a full 3 amps while maintaining 5V. The Klein tester showed that each of the ports passed at 3A, which was great to see. However, the back of the product package notes that the total output of the 4 USB ports is a combined 4.8A.
          Unfortunately, the back of the power dock does not have any screw mounting holes. I tried using 3M Contact Strips to attach it to the back of my nightstand, but the strips wouldn't stick to the fiberboard backing of my nightstand. However, I was able to use hot glue to attach it, which worked perfectly.
          While I really like this power dock, there is one flaw. When devices draw any power from the USB ports, the power dock makes a high pitched whine. The whine isn't very loud, but because the power dock is on the back of my night stand about 2 feet from my head when I'm in bed, I can hear it clearly. But if I move 4 feet or farther away, I cannot hear the whine. I assume that most people will probably have this power dock located at least 4 feet away from their ears, so despite the whine, I still definitely recommend it due to its nice design and convenient outlets and charging ports.

          The MILWAUKEE® 1-3/4" SDS Max Rotary Hammer has a powerful 15A Motor capable of delivering 8.1 ft-lbs of impact energy for the most demanding applications. The AUTOSTOP™ E-Clutch prevents over-rotation of the tool in case of tool lock up giving users a more controlled experience while using the corded rotary hammer drill. The variable speed dial allows users to set the optimal speed per application while two modes, Rotary Hammer and Hammer Only, allow easy transitions between drilling large holes or chipping applications. When chipping, a lock-on button allows users to chip without constantly pulling the trigger. Built-in Advanced AVS (Anti-Vibration System) minimizes the vibration users feel while using the rotary hammer drill.

          This SDS-MAX hammer drill is huge, and is great for drilling large vertical holes in concrete, or doing demolition work.
          If you need to break up concrete, or need to drill dozens of 1/2" to 1 3/4" vertical holes in slabs, this 22 pound 15 amp drill is a great option. This drill is a big, heavy beast, and is great for big jobs.
          However, if you need to drill holes smaller than 1/2", need to drill horizontal holes, need to work in tight spaces, or need any precision, then a smaller model is probably a better choice.
          Note that this model uses the massive SDS-MAX bits with 18mm shank, and it is NOT compatible with the smaller SDS or SDS-Plus bits. You can purchase an SDS-MAX to SDS Read More

          Note that this model uses the massive SDS-MAX bits with 18mm shank, and it is NOT compatible with the smaller SDS or SDS-Plus bits. You can purchase an SDS-MAX to SDS adapter, but be aware that this heavy drill can easily snap the smaller SDS / SDS-Plus bits when used in the adapter. (I learned the hard way)
          And while the SDS-MAX bits are heavy duty and large, the larger or longer bits can be pretty expensive, so definitely think about the bits you need, as they will be an investment. But during a recent trip to Home Depot, I saw that there were a lot of different Milwaukee SDS-MAX bits available--more than standard SDS or SDS-Plus--so it seems that SDS-MAX has become very popular.
          This model appears to be an upgrade to Milwaukee's largest rotary hammer drill, with an increase to 15A, an increase of maximum bit size to 1-3/4", the addition of the E-Clutch feature, and the addition of the variable speed control.
          This is a fantastic hammer drill that can easily handle big jobs. Read Less

          This is a high quality cast iron pizza pan that works great in an oven or BBQ grill. If you've never made home-made pizza before, it is definitely worth the extra effort. The crust and the flavor are amazing.
          I've avoided getting a pizza stone because of the size and weight, but this pizza pan is smaller, easier to handle, and can be used for other cooking, like a large skillet or griddle.
          Although we have several independent pizza places near us, none of them are particularly good. After we visited New York City a year ago and feasted on the amazing pizza there, our local pizza was even more disappointing, and I was very motivated to make some good pizza at home.

          Although we have several independent pizza places near us, none of them are particularly good. After we visited New York City a year ago and feasted on the amazing pizza there, our local pizza was even more disappointing, and I was very motivated to make some good pizza at home.
          I recently bought a bread maker, which has a recipe for pizza dough, and after watching several YouTube videos on making pizza dough and baking pizza at home, we started experimenting.
          First, I absolutely recommend purchasing a *wooden* pizza peel to transfer the pizza to the pan when cooking. The biggest challenge we had was getting the pizza onto the hot pizza pan. It is much more difficult than you would think and there is just no substitute for a wooden peel. I tried metal and even a nonstick cookie sheet, but the pizza dough would still stick to the smooth metal surface.
          This cast iron pizza pan gets nice and hot and retains heat well, similar to a pizza stone. It produces very crisp, light crust, and can put some char on the bottom of the crust. I have used this pizza pan twice on my Weber BBQ grill, which worked well, but it was a bit tricky to regulate the temperature of the BBQ. I'm going to try my oven next, set on the highest temp.
          The entire pizza making process does require some learning, experimentation, and trial and error. But even our most misshapen pizzas were incredibly tasty.
          Making pizza at home is also a fun family activity. My wife and kids really enjoy it, and the results are so much tastier, and it's much cheaper than buying pizza. Read Less

With the largest capacity washer in its class, now you can wash a king size comforter and full set of bedding in a single load.

          I just did a test, adding only two hand towels and a small washcloth, and then selecting the Speed Wash cycle. The towels looked tiny in the massive tub of this machine.

          The machine ran through its Sensing process to detect the amount of laundry, and then automatically added water.
          I don't know how many gallons were added, but there was 5 inches of water in the tub, and there is additional water under and around the tub. The Speed Wash cycle showed an estimated time of under 28 minutes.
          Given the size and high capacity design of this machine, I don't think it's ideal for small loads--it seems to be designed for large loads. But it does appear to be able to adjust to relatively small loads.
          If I need to wash one or two things, I usually grab some towels from the bathrooms or kitchen and throw them in. Read Less

          The wash time varies by load, and the displayed time goes up and down during the wash cycle, but based on the loads I've done so far, it seems like 75 minutes is typical for a "normal" wash cycle. It seems to range from 60-90 minutes though.

          When it comes to laundry capacity, big is good, bigger is better, but biggest is best. With the largest capacity washer in its class, now you can wash a king size comforter and full set of bedding in a single load. At 4.5 cu. ft. of mega capacity, you will definitely have more room to clean.

          Answer: 
          It does not have the center agitator, and as a result, the tub can hold a lot more laundry than my old machine with an agitator. I've attached a few photos of the tub. It seems like it has nearly double the capacity of my old 3.9 cu ft washing machine--what I previously did in two loads, I can do with one full load in this machine.

          Does this machine have an internal/built in water heater?

          Answer: 
          No, it does not have a water heater. It requires a cold and hot water connection.
