Philips SHQ3000 Earbuds Earhook Headphones Review

Philips did a complete turnaround when they developed these Philips SHQ3000 Action Fit Earhook Sports Headphones. These are so much better than the SHQ1000-28 offering.   Unlike some of the other earhook-featuring earbuds we’ve reviewed, these Philips SHQ3000s route the audio cable in a better way.  They use the earhook itself as a router.  So, the … Continue reading Philips SHQ3000 Earbuds Earhook Headphones Review

Honeywell RTH7600D Programmable Thermostat Review

The   Honeywell RTH7600D 7 Day Programmable Thermostat   for the central heating and cooling system costs $60 at Lowe’s. Priced reasonably, this computerized touchscreen HVAC controller still clicks as it turns the HVAC system on and off.  It clicks just like the Robertshaw 9415 digital thermostat (reviewed  here ) that we replaced. But this sound is neither loud … Continue reading Honeywell RTH7600D Programmable Thermostat Review

Honeywell RLV310A Baseboard Heat Thermostat Review

We purchased two of the  Honeywell RLV310A Baseboard Heat Thermostat   for the electric baseboard heaters.  We detail our experiences with this line voltage yet digital thermostat here in this review. At a cost of approximately $30 from Lowe’s home improvement center, the price seemed reasonable. The RLV310A Honeywell line voltage thermostat is much quieter. E.g. No clicking … Continue reading Honeywell RLV310A Baseboard Heat Thermostat Review

iWorld Stealth Earbuds Headphones Headset Review

They refer to these iWorld Stealth Earbuds as Stealth Sound, presumably, because those around you will not hear your music if you’re properly wearing these. As is typical for iWorld, they again devised a cheap, reasonably well performing headset for CD and MP3 player users. The Stealth Sound series is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and … Continue reading iWorld Stealth Earbuds Headphones Headset Review

Waterpik NSP 853 Power Spray Shower Head Review

We received the Waterpik NSP-853 Power Spray Plus massaging shower head for Christmas some years back. So far, this adjustable handheld bathroom accessory is great.  It’s a far cry above our old, few-settings, fixed position shower head. The Waterpic is medium to light weight. It has many different sprayer settings, is virtually self-cleaning, and saves … Continue reading Waterpik NSP 853 Power Spray Shower Head Review

Axcel Lightning Cable for iPhone Review

  The Axcel USB Lightning Sync & Charge iPhone and iPad Cable line is certainly not the cheapest data and charging cable available.  We paid nearly $22 for ours at Lowe’s, which is roughly akin to the pricing on similar Apple-manufactured lightning port cords. But its construction, larger size of connectors, and thicker wires make this Axcel … Continue reading Axcel Lightning Cable for iPhone Review

We avidly drink green tea.  Well over fifteen years now.  So we often keep electric kettles like the   Chef’s Choice Cordless Electric Kettle 677 2 (6772)   on the kitchen counter for quick and efficient heating of the water. The stainless steel finish is attractive and modern looking, and resists tea stains as well. The … Continue reading Chef’s Choice 677 2 Electric Kettle Review

Akin to one component in a stereo component system, the  Netgear WN802T V2 Wireless-N Access Point   is one such component in a highly modular computer wireless networking system. Netgear WN802T V2 Wireless-N Access Point WN802T V2 Review While it does not offer cable or DSL modem functions, routing functions from WAN to LAN networks, or … Continue reading Netgear WN802T V2 Wireless-N Access Point Review
