          The Tape Tearer is the only tape dispenser that can dispense any 2 inch tape, from masking and packing tape, to super tough duct tapes and backed tapes. The key is the adjustable spool that keeps the tape close against the cutter throughout the use of the whole roll, and gives the ability to dispense much larger rolls. The blade guard protects your hands and also helps place the tape onto the box or envelope.

          I have never found a wrapping tape dispenser that I totally liked and this one is the same. It doesn't cut the tape perfectly every time, nor is it easy to change rolls. I don't understand what the cord on the front is used for, but it is not in the way so I do not mind it being there. This unit is sturdy and solid and should last a long time. Which makes it better than some others I have used.
          Pros: Durable, High Quality, Sturdy

          The tape is very strong and can do everything that duct tape can. With the added benefit of being waterproof. Having just used the tape recently I cannot comment on its long term holding power. I gave a roll to a friend to fix a leaking radiator hose on his car it worked and now he is not going to replace his hose. I advised against it.He is just carrying the rest of the roll of tape around with him.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, High Quality, Sturdy

          I use mine on the end of my desk to provide supplemental lighting. It provides strong, white light, just what I was looking for. My desk has a thin top, so the clamp grips perfectly. It doesn't look elegant, more industrial than anything else, but it doesn't clash with anything else in my home office. I would say it looks minimalist. I am very happy with it.
          Pros: Eco-Friendly, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Nice Design, Very Bright

          This is a novelty item that is purely decorative. If you want a distinctive look about your house, and don't mind taking the time to unscrew all of your cover plates (flat head screwdriver) around your house; and then installing these, the unseen plate uses Phillips head screws, and then you snap on the cover plates. In my opinion you either go all in and do your entire house or don't do it at all. The outside plates unsnap easily if you need to replace an underlying switch.
          Pros: Easy Installation, Nice Design, Stylish

          EcoSmart 75-Watt Equivalent PAR30 Dimmable Energy Star Flood LED Light Bulb Daylight (2-Pack)
          EcoSmart 75-Watt Equivalent PAR30 Dimmable Energy Star Flood LED Light Bulb Daylight (2-Pack)
          The EcoSmart PAR30 9.5-Watt LED Light Bulb can be used to replace any PAR 30 or 75-Watt bulb with a standard E26 base. This Daylight LED bulb uses only 9.5-Watt of power while emitting 680 lumens of clear, clean, bright light. It is estimated that this bulb saves an estimated $180 in energy costs over the course of its life. On average the bulb lasts 22 years (or 25,000 hours of use). This light can be dimmed for convenient light customization, which further helps conserve energy over the life of the bulb.
           

          Why does the product overview area of the text state can be used to replace a PAR 30 or 70-Watt bulb.; yet elsewhere in text it states 75W bulb ?

          Why does the product overview area of the text state can be used to replace a PAR 30 or 70-Watt bulb.; yet elsewhere in text it states 75W bulb ?

          Is it a 75 watt bulb equivalency or is it a 70 watt bulb equivalency ?

          Also this says energy star on it whereas others one up one down same manufacturer just more bulbs in box one does not state they are energy star bulbs for those --- even though led -- and text look a likes thus is the text description missing it or is text correct

          Answer: 
          This bulb is a 75W (equivalent output to old incandescent lightbulbs), PAR30 (parabolic aluminum reflector), 680 lumen, 5000K (daylight color) bulb.
