"Quality economical durable cabin kit for homestead" - by Scotch tape 6 pack (San Diego)
I saw these spruce cabin kits in a hardware store in the Swedish archipelago in 2008. I was impressed by the quality of craftsmanship. Also spruce is a pleasing wood grain and non toxic you want to stay away from cedar inside the home. This is the most cost effective housing option while the main house is being built and will be used as guest house. I will post updates/photos from my homestead. It's a better option for us than a camper/yurt/tiny house/tent and it's nice to have Nordic imports in the states.

"Best Emergency Solar Charger for the Money" - by Sophia Sparkman
It had been 90 days without electric power at my parents house (due to hurricane Maria) when we got the panels. I have light in the living room and kitchen, the other bulbs you can connect via usb to a battery charger and have light where ever you need it! My kids can charge all of their electronics! I wish I had more $$$ to buy more for the rest of the family!Also great for sheds or barns without having to run electrical lines .

"If you can see mold this test will tell you exactly what it is. Not designed to test for air borne mold." - by NWFEM
I used this product in my office, but not as intended by the manufacturer. I was errant in not reading up on the product before I purchased it. This is a "direct contact with visible mold" kit, NOT an air borne mold test kit. If you can see mold and use the kit as directed, the lab will tell you the kind of mold and a general quantity level. I had no visible mold to test, so I left the test strips out in three areas for 24 hours to attempt an "air sample test". The test strip that was placed in the area that I suspected there would be mold did register "Scattered" amounts of Cladosporium, which is impressive given the misapplication of the product.

"Great Kit for Home, EDC, Car" - by LH
I take my first aid very seriously, and have been trained in various first aid and EMT courses. I like this kit because it's compact and comprehensive without adding a lot of unnecessary items and that it comes with enough extra space to add the items I deem essential.

This kit will get me to the point where I could get anyone to the hospital. If you are looking for a "TEOTWAWKI" type kit, this probably isn't the one for you, but if you are looking for a practical, user-friendly kit that can help stabilize and treat a trauma while you wait for more formal help, I would highly recommend this kit.

I purchased the large kit and the travel kit. The large kit has a detachable mini-kit which I throw in my EDC, making the kit even more useful. You do have to purchase your own medications and I added ... full review

"Easy to use but plan on about $6 for shipping" - by Erik S. (Michigan)
If you're reading the reviews, you already know that you'll need to mail the test it out to get the results. I sent mine via USPS flat rate for ~$6. I recommend filling out the form online rather than using the enclosed paperwork, it's much easier. I found the process super easy and was emailed the results in less than a week. It'd be a lot easier if the kit included a prepaid return envelope and just added the cost to the purchase price.

"Great toolkit" - by S.S.Lear
So so happy to have a toolkit with a rechargeable screw driver at a reasonable price. We have not used this set for any sort of intense home repair but so far so good. To screw in or unscrew things into dry wall or put some ikea furniture together, this powerdrill has been great. My only complaint has to do with the multibit screwdriver. I don't know what happened but interchanging the bits worked great for the first week, and by the second week wouldn't hold anything and became useless. Luckily we had a spare lying around the house that didn't come with the kit. Kind of a shame but overall I would say everything other than the multibit screw driver worked as expected (hence the lost star). We haven't used the hole saw attachments or any thing heavy duty but ... full review

"Flint, MI got you worried?" - by Heather M. (Webb City, Missouri)
This test kit was not complete, in that it was missing the reagent strips for the iron test. However, the rest of the kit worked well and the seller was very responsive. This water test kit comes complete with materials to test for bacteria, lead, pesticide, chlorine, copper, iron, nitrate, nitrite, alkalinity, pH, and hardness. I was most concerned about lead (looking at you, Flint, Michigan) so it was nice to have that quick response allaying my fears. Most of the tests are finished within just a few minutes. The lead and pesticide strips take 10 minutes, and the bacteria vial must sit for 48 hours to give any present bacteria enough time to grow.

The instructions are straightforward and easy to read, with pertinent bits (like "DO NOT SET IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT" or "45 seconds") in bold print. It also comes with a booklet of more information, so if ... full review

"True story... we has 2 buyers fall ..." - by Michael H Meyer
True story...we has 2 buyers fall through on our house and were already committed to the new one...I began praying the St. Joseph novena and ordered the statue. Two days later I received it and buries it at lunch. That night a guy name Joe called to look at the house. We showed it to him. Two days later he made an offer slightly higher than the previous two. We accepted. I told him I thought it was interesting that his name was Joe. He said actually my name is Joseph because I was born on his feast day. 😊

"New system with Lots of potential!" - by James Duncan Jr
I recently purchased the new Ring security system after owning the video doorbell for a while. I bought this system to allow me to ditch my system and service from a large national provider (42$ per month for monitoring vs 10$)! Firstly, I have been interested in this product and company since I saw Jaime Siminoff on Shark Tank back in 2013. Back then the company was called DoorBot. I like the new name much better.

I set up the new system with ease. It Took about 45 minutes! I have to give props to Mr. Siminoff for adding in this 7 day training period which allowed me to learn the new equipment without the fear of having the authorities show up. Thank God someone is thinking outside the box. My last alarm system that was much more expensive and hardwired, came with no training at ... full review

"Good customer service" - by Richard Clayton (Virginia)
All ten tests in this package were simple to use and worked to spec. (I checked the results against a battery of tests from a different vendor). What makes this product a standout from similar kits is the vendor's attention to customer service. When Test Assured discovered my first test set was incomplete, they diligently contacted me and sent a full replacement kit for free. When evaluating multiple similar products, I always recommend the one with the best customer support.

(Note: This is edited from my previous review, which was substantially negative due to the incomplete kit; Test Assured's commitment to customer satisfaction more than makes up for the initial problems.)

"Great fidelity and beautiful display screen" - by Ronald Hayes (Okeechobee, FL USA)
I've been an XM Satellite Radio subscriber for over ten years. When my old "Roadie" receiver needed replacing, I purchased the Onyx Plus unit for my home. I was, at first, disappointed that the new unit did not broadcast via FM to other radios in the house and out onto the patio as the old one did. I was pleased, however, with the new visual display screen, and what seems to be improved fidelity of the music. I purchased a Signstek low power FM transmitter from Amazon, and connected it to the XM receiver. It now sends the signal to other radios in and around the house with an even clearer and stronger signal than before. I highly recommend the Onyx Plus Satellite Radio receiver, and, if anyone is accustomed to listening on radios throughout the house, the Signstek FM transmitter is a perfect ... full review
