          This towel bar unfortunately is not perfect. The matte black color is sleek and stylish, however the design is marred with gray plastic parts. The part that connects the rod to brackets is a gray plastic. It sticks out like a sore thumb. I included a picture of the area that I am speaking of. It was pretty disappointing.
          Otherwise, I enjoy the modern look of the towel bar. I like how the rod is a rectangle rather than tube shaped. The matte black color is perfect for a modern bathroom.
          Pros: Nice Design, Stylish
          Cons: gray plastic piece is tacky

          I have had nothing but problems with the washer. On the quick wash setting, the washer was extremely loud to the point I could hear it from 2 floors up.
          I did a load of laundry on the bulky setting, the washer began making a loud ratcheting noise and the agitator wasn't moving properly. I included a video of the sound that it made. There was also the feint smell of burning. I called for service and basically every part of the washer needs to be replaced. Mainly the transmission.

          My biggest concern for the washer is its reliability. The washer is supposed to "sense" how much laundry is in the tub and fill the water to the correct amount. With all the rest of the problems that I've had, I just don't know about this washer. Read Less

          I used 4 different colors of this product to do a multi-colored accent wall. The four colors that I used in my project were Charred Wood, Barn Board Gray, Coastal Ivory, and Reclaimed Brown.
          Overall the Barn Board Gray boards were all usable. I did however have significant warping problems with the Charred Wood color so keep that in mind if you are using multiple colors. This gray color was definitely my favorite of the 4 as it had a lot of color variation just on its own. It is also a very neutral color that would do with nearly everything. The gray color boards did have much more knots in the wood than the other varieties though.

          You can either make a clean cut on the edge to get rid of the chips or use some touch up paint. The "finished side" of this product is smooth. The back of the product is just more rough. You can use either side that you wish. The rough side is a darker gray color.
          What I really like about the product is that the boards are very light weight. I previously did a similar accent wall with laminate and laminate is significantly heavier and much harder to install on a wall. This light weight product could really be installed by anyone without much problem. Read Less

I did however have significant warping problems with the Charred Wood color so keep that in mind if you are using multiple colors.
          The "finished side" of this product is a pretty medium brown color. The back of the product was unfinished and rough. You would only be able to use the finished side of this particular color.

          Xtreme Mats under cabinet sink mats protect your cabinets from damage caused by water leaks, chemical or product spills, stains, and scratches. Xtreme Mats are flexible and can easily be installed into existing cabinetry. Xtreme Mats feature a raised design that keeps products off the bottom of the mat in the event of a leak or product spill. The raised design also channels any liquid to a location in the back of the mat which can house a water sensor alarm (sold separately). Xtreme Mats can be removed quickly for easy cleaning. Color: Grey.

          Answer: 
          Yes, the mat cuts fairly easily with just regular scissors. My pipes are the same as yours and I cut holes to accommodate. Keep in mind you are compromising the waterproof aspects of the mat once you start cutting it though.

          Answer: 
          You should get a multimeter and check the two wires for exactly what the reading is coming from those two wires. The problem could be bad wiring from the transformer to the doorbell area. Your transformer could also be bad so you can check it with the multimeter. The transformer you have should be sufficient. Multimeters are relatively cheap and are easy to use.

          Also I had that problem initially because I was also trying to run a lighted address plate on the same transformer as the ring. It did not have enough power to run both. Make sure you do not have additional items being powered by your transformer. Read Less

          I have a satellite based internet service (Dish). Will cloud video and voice capability work properly? I know for example that VoIP phone service will not work primarily because the latency of the internet connection is so high.

          Answer: 
          Dish Internet is way too slow for the Ring too work properly. The video quality will be horrible as well as the sound. The "Live View" will probably not come up for you and will likely error out. I believe Dish is 5mbps down and 1 up. I would personally recommend at least 20 down and 2 up for minimum. More is needed to optimal performance.

          Can this light be hung from the chains only so that total hanging depth is about 18"?

          Answer: 
          NO. The previous answer is incorrect. The chains have a male connector and the fixture itself is also a male connector. To connect the chains to the fixture, you'll need to use the longest rod which has two female connectors. The height of the chain and rod + fixture is a little 32 inches. Taking off all the chain links except for one allows for a minimum hang height of a bit over 25 inches.
