          If you are a serious gamer, you need an ergonomic office chair to keep up with the demands of your marathon gaming sessions. Your couch may feel comfortable, but you need adequate seating while holding the controller for hours at a time. This high back racing style game chair will outperform your couch with healthier benefits. The ergonomic design of this racing chair offers generous padding with a wing style back to cradle your torso. The padded arms provide a comfortable resting position while holding your controller and relieve pressure off your shoulder and neck. If you're playing on your computer and want to get closer to the action the arms flip backward to pull yourself underneath the desk without having to adjust the seat height. The tilt lock mechanism underneath the seat locks in an upright position when you no longer want to lean and rock back. To be considered a true gamer you need a dedicated gaming chair to take your gaming to new heights, whether you have followers who watch you on a streaming service or like to interact with other gamers online. Color: Gray.

          We have been needing an "official" gaming chair for years but we have been using an old hand me down recliner for some unknown reason. When I set this gaming chair up in the living room for the first time my son immediately sat down in it and claimed it as his own.
          This Carnegy Avenue gaming chair is perfect for gaming. You can raise and lower the height of the chair so your feet rest comfortably on the floor. You can flip both of the arms of the chair up and out of the way if you want to rest the controller on your lap while playing. You can flip both of the arms of the chair back down so you can rest your forearms on them to comfortably play that way (the chair arms are very nicely Read More

          This Carnegy Avenue gaming chair is perfect for gaming. You can raise and lower the height of the chair so your feet rest comfortably on the floor. You can flip both of the arms of the chair up and out of the way if you want to rest the controller on your lap while playing. You can flip both of the arms of the chair back down so you can rest your forearms on them to comfortably play that way (the chair arms are very nicely padded).
          The padding on the chair seat and seat back is very thick and you kind of feel like you are sinking down into it which is great for those long gaming sessions. Your back is fully supported from top to bottom and you don't have that gap at your lower back area that is unsupported. I didn't realize it at first (since I didn't read the directions) but you can push in or pull out on the arm you use to raise and lower the seat height to allow the chair to fully recline and rock back and forth like a rocking chair.
          Since this chair is covered in black leather with mesh gray inserts your body doesn't sweat when sitting in it for long periods of time. The mesh really does a great job of allowing your body to breathe. The overall comfort of this gaming chair is fantastic.
          This chair does come in pieces and it took me about 30 minutes to put it together using the supplied Allen wrench. About half way through the assembly process I decided to get a 5 mm Allen wrench socket driver out and use it and it went way faster. I could have probably put it together in 15 or 20 minutes if I had done this in the very beginning.
          The supplied directions are very simplified but they work. They show 4 separate pictures with the identifying items on them and you just use the supplied Allen wrench to put them all together. Once complete you just set the upper half on top of the lower half and you are done.
          I think this gaming chair is designed more for a PC gamer then a Xbox or Playstation gamer but to be honest it would work perfectly either way. In our home we have several separate gaming setups but having this gaming chair takes it to a whole new level of comfort and style. Now that we have been utilizing this in our living room I can't picture going back to our old recliner for gaming. Also we can now sit a lot closer to the TV so you can be more fully immersed in the action.
          If you are looking for a very comfortable, fantastic looking and fully adjustable gaming chair I would definitely give this one here a try. You will be very happy you did. There is one down side though and that is I don't get to play Xbox as much anymore because I can't get my son out of the chair ;o)
          I don't know if the manufacturer will ever read this review or not but if you do it would be very cool to have a matching foot stool that matched the chair. That would make the whole setup just that much more comfortable and better in my book and really take the comfort level over the top. Read Less
          Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Assemble, Excellent Quality, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Perfect Size, Rich Looking, Sturdy, Vibrant Color, Well Made

          I will start by saying I wish I had found these sooner. My wife has already frayed several iPhone charging cords over the years. I don't know how she does it but they are not cheap to replace with OEM cords. Her current phone cord on her side of the bed has already frayed and I wrapped white electrical tape around it since it still semi worked.
          I just went and placed a pink colored cord protector on her iPhone cord and tried using it. It makes it much, much easier to insert and remove from the base of the phone. I had to do it over and over to try and figure out why it was so much easier and I found that it gives you a raised lip for your finger tips to grab onto. This makes you fingers Read More

          I just went and placed a pink colored cord protector on her iPhone cord and tried using it. It makes it much, much easier to insert and remove from the base of the phone. I had to do it over and over to try and figure out why it was so much easier and I found that it gives you a raised lip for your finger tips to grab onto. This makes you fingers no longer slip off the top portion of the charging cable and onto the cord when trying to remove the cable. This should help eliminate all the frayed iPhone cords going forward.
          I like utilizing it so much on her iPhone cord that I went and put a black one on mine. I find that I can much easier unplug my phone while laying in bed now with this cord collar. When I first opened the packaging on this I couldn't figure out how to install the cord collars. Once I saw the little two piece supplied tool they give you along with the picture directions it was super easy. I really like the variety of colors they give you in the package. There's pretty much any color someone could want.
          All in all these are a great solution to a very annoying and somewhat expensive problem depending on the frayed cord. I'm going to be installing one of these on the iPhone and iPad chargers I carry in my backpack. Every once in a while a co-worker will borrow my stuff to charge their phone. Now I have a way of identifying my cords since they will have one of these cord collars on them.
          If you are looking for an inexpensive solution for what can be an expensive problem I would definitely give these Nite Ize cord collars a try. I don't think I could ever not use one now going forward. They are great! Read Less
          Pros: Clear Instructions, Easy Installation, Easy to Use, Nice Design, makes inserting/removing from iphone much easier

          My wife recently started a new job and was looking for a tool set she could use at work. She is always hanging signs and decorations and having to do odd jobs all around their showroom. This Anvil 17-Piece homeowners tool set is perfect for all her needs.
          It has a hammer, long nose pliers, slip joint pliers, adjustable wrench, 12 ft. tape, 8 in. scissors and a screwdriver handle with several different tips. It basically has everything you could possibly need in one great package.

My wife did say she would like it even better if it was pink but I guess you can't have everything ;o)
          I really like that this set didn't come pre packaged in a hard plastic tool case. I personally like working out of a tool bag so much better that I went and bought my wife one for all her new tools. Once she saw all her new tools perfectly placed in each of their proper pouches she was really happy with how it turned out.
          This set of tools is also perfect for that drawer in the kitchen (you know the one) that has all your miscellaneous tools in it. It is also perfect for that college student living in the dorm. You really can't go wrong with this tool set no matter how you use it. All in all this is a great set that Anvil has put together.

          Pros: All In One, Durable, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Strong, Sturdy, everything you need in one set

          Tiki Mask tropical wall decoration adds charming and flair to any home decor or backyard and garden spaces. Hand-carved and hand-painted Tiki masks are made of Albesia wood by Indonesian artisans. Each design is unique and no 2 masks are exactly alike. Polynesian tiki mask is the perfect Tiki Bar and Palapa decoration. Tiki mask is originally used in ancient Polynesian and Hawaiian culture, every Tiki mask is intended to represent deities and bestow specific traits upon the setting in which they're placed. Each Tiki mask represents a different purpose. Although they are called "masks" and were sometimes meant to protect and empower wearers, traditional Tiki masks were less frequently worn on the body than displayed as statues or decor in the home or the community. Backyard X-Scapes brings a variety of Tiki Mask designs to transform your backyard into tropical paradise, choose 1 or collect them, create an escape from your everyday life right in your own backyard with an exotic outdoor space.

          My wife is always looking for decorations to add out our backyard fence. She likes to look out the kitchen window and see our eclectic mix of items hanging off of it. This 20 in. tiki mask from Backyard X-Scapes is very well done. The carving is very clean looking and the colors are super bright which makes the whole mask "pop" when you look at it.
          This mask is so nice you could easily use it as an interior decoration.

          This mask was super easy to hang. I simply used a push pin on my fence and used the included wall hangar to hang it. The mask is lightweight enough that you don't have to worry about it pulling the push pin out of the wall.
          Now that I have one of these masks from Backyard X-Scapes I want to get some more of them to hang along other sections of our fence. The super bright colors make you smile every time you look at it. Read Less

          I have been wanting a new pair of pliers for quite some time. I had a pair of pliers that worked great but once the jaw covers were ruined you couldn't find replacements. It drove me nuts trying to wrap electrical tape, duct tape or anything else I could think of around the plier jaws
          Needless to say when I saw these 10 in. soft jaw pliers from Husky I was very, very happy. I know they are intended for basin and sink lock nuts, trap nuts and toilet spuds but I wanted them for one thing and one thing only and that was for replacing shower arms. Every time I go to replace a shower arm it always looks like a beaver attacked it if you don't protect it somehow.

Every time I go to replace a shower arm it always looks like a beaver attacked it if you don't protect it somehow.
          These soft jaw pliers worked perfectly for me while doing this. They gripped it tightly and did not just spin like most pliers do when wrapping the shower arm with a towel. I also have ran into situations where I have a plastic shower head attaching to a metal shower arm and these pliers with the jaw covers in place won't mar up my plastic pieces either.
          For years I have just been shoving a large screw driver up the shower arm to install it. This works but you have to be very careful doing it this way. It feels much more "normal" using a pair of these pliers with the soft jaw covers on them.
          I found the fit and finish of my pliers to be perfect. They are very comfortable in the hand and adjust smoothly. The jaw covers stay firmly in place when installed. They actually feel like they "click" when installed correctly. All in all I'm extremely happy with my new Husky pliers and I'm looking forward to using them for years and years. Read Less
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Strong, Sturdy, replaceable jaw covers

          Hi,
          I'm not sure if I can answer your question exactly as stated but here is the estimated number of charges you can get based on the Ah of the different battery sizes. I have attached a picture I took off the packaging for my inverter. Hopefully this helps you somewhat.

          Airthings Wave Mini is small in size but big in impact. This indoor air quality monitor is the first step into understanding your indoor air quality, or a great addition to your existing Airthings air quality ecosystem. The Total VOC sensor monitors toxins and chemicals in your air that can cause negative health effects. VOCs are emitted from everyday household items such as toys and plastic products. These unhealthy chemicals can also be emitted from cleaning products, furniture and flooring. A VOC detector is key to ensure the optimal health and comfort levels of every room. An additional humidity sensor enables you to enjoy the best indoor humidity level for your specific home. Make sure humidity levels do not rise too high or fall too low. Optimum indoor humidity levels are between 30% to 59% according to the EPA. Healthy humidity levels are key to prevent mold and the spread of infectious disease. In addition, the temperature sensor allows you to maintain not only a healthy home but a comfortable one too. Get your results straight to your smartphone, with this compact and easy-to-use companion. Or use as a complement to the Wave Plus for the complete air quality picture.

          Answer: 
          Yes this will definitely measure the TVOC or VOC in your air. We have been using it for several days now and it is interesting to see see it change as it goes through its 7 day calibration. It's great to be able to actually monitor the air in our home on a continuous basis now.

          It has a very simple push button on the back end of the flashlight that is used to turn it off/on.
           
          The Hampton Bay Low Voltage 50-Watt Equivalent LED Spot Light offers the option of three light colors. The integrated switch rotates to choose from 2700K Warm White, 3000K Soft White or 4000K Daylight light color. The flood beam angle is perfect for highlighting wide areas, as well as enhancing home security. On any of the 3 light color settings, it consumes over 80% less energy than a typical halogen light and has a rated life of 50,000 hours. The LED system provides maintenance free operation and there are no bulbs to change. With cast aluminum construction, long life powder coat finish and weatherproof electronics, you can count on many years of service. The quick-install wire connector means easy do-it-yourself installation that is quick and safe.

          Answer: 
          On the side of the box it says 40* beam angle. I have attached a picture of the side of the box which hopefully helps.

          5-Piece Combination Ratcheting Wrench Set has standard pattern ratcheting combination wrenches that need as little as 5 degrees to move fastener vs. 30 degrees for standard wrench. Gearwrench surface drive design of box end provides for stronger grip on wrenches and less fastener rounding. Nickel chrome finish for long corrosion resistant tool life.
