Notes from the Community

really relaxing and does the job, has different setting that suit your needs, only downside is its kinda loud My feet constantly ache. This machine has taken care of that. Great pressure, hits all the right spots (my feet are 7.5/8 womens- it did not work well on my husbands size 13 feet). I plan on using this daily. Amazing purchase! Great item. Relaxing and nice stimulation. After using massager for more than a couple of weeks, I am happy to use it and surely will suggest my friends to use it. I feel pain in legs sometimes and was looking for a good massager from a long time. This is exactly what I needed.Pros:Effective settings and modesHeat helps to relax moreConsistent performance every timeCons:Sound - Its not completely noise free however it do not impact the massage performance This is amazing. With the 15 minute timer and auto shut off, I can just sit down on the couch after work and relax. Its so nice- the heat function I rarely use because I enjoy the massage so much I dont need it. This is the first foot massager I bought and so far it works very well. I drive a lot and at the end of the day I need some foot massage so this massager comes handy. The intensity of the massager can be adjusted (it has 3 different levels) I usually set it to the maximum level. It is powerful so there is no way to operate with batteries but it has a long electric cord!The feet compartments are big enough to fit my feet (I think it can fit more than 12 US man size feet) and the covers are washable which is a plus! I bought this product last month and it stopped working for no reason. I sent multiple messages to seller and absolutely no response from seller. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY FOR PIECE OF GOODWILL JUNK. I purchased this for my mom for mothers day and she loved it. I was concerned about foot size based on some of the reviews but she said its perfect for her size 7 foot.

Notes from the Community

I received the Fire TV Stick 4K on launch day. I own the previous model and this is a much better experience. First off the remote is a huge improvement. The power button on the remote can turn on my tv, my receiver, fire stick, and switch the inputs automatically so the fire stick is on screen and ready to go with just one click of the power button. Its really nice. This is how it should have been all along. It gets even better though… lets say my TV is already on, and my receiver is set to a different input such as my FIOS tv box? All you do is click the home button on the remote and the remote switches the receiver to the correct hdmi input on the receiver for the fire stick! One remote to rule them all, and yes it controls volume on the receiver too! This is excellent. Its highly configurable. The setup is quite nice. You can define which inputs get picked when hitting the power and home button. You can define which device the volume buttons control. Amazon has done a great job with the Fire Stick 4K.Its faster than previous fire sticks. No more menu lag. Things are smoother and faster overall. Ive used Roku, Chromecast Ultra and Fire Stick… I like them all for different reasons. I also dislike chromecast because 5.1 audio will not work on my receiver because chromecast refuses to support Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1. Fire stick has no problem handling DD5.1. This makes my plex and netflix experience much more enjoyable. The remote is better than not having a remote (chromecast). Rokus are very nice as well. All 3 of these options are great in their own way and frankly I had thought fire stick was the least desirable but recently Ive come to realize I prefer Fire stick so I pre-ordered the 4K fire stick and I could not be happier with it. Amazon needs to keep up the good work. The 4K stick is a solid product and an excellent upgrade from the previous model Let me tell you, I was super excited for the launch of the new FireTV Stick with its leading edge technology and processing power. Well, its got that but theres a couple bug, game breaking problems I have with this thing.1) The Amazon platform is basically retooled Android, which is a crap interface. Its cluttered, redundant, and Amazon being Amazon wants you to use all their services over everyone elses so not only does their menu get in the way but the top third of the home screen is promotions for whatever they want to push.2) Also because its Amazon they want you to use THEIR streaming services to rent movies so much so that there is no Vudu or Google Play app available to install. If Prime Video had a decent selection of rentals (it doesnt) or a halfway usable interface (it doesnt) I would have less of a problem.3) Our FireTV Stick has issues with flickering and sound dropout. Tech support immediately supplied a series of less than helpful troubleshooting tips. Did you try a different TV? Did you try a different HDMI port? Despite my Roku working just fine. I elected to return this since I was already fed up with the closed interface and terrible menus.Slightly less of an issue but still annoying is the inability to completely turn off HDR. Its either always on or adaptive meaning the content dictates HDR which is a problem especially with Netflix (which is calibrated too dark on some TVs)For now Im happier with my Roku Stick despite less robust HDR support.Edit: updated my review for the following:- Amazon reached out immediately after my review to get additional feedback and to offer more support. That actually means something these days. Ill continue to monitor for problems- I upgraded to a new TV and this makes the HDR issue better since it actually looks good on this TV. Problem still stands of not being able to disable HDR entirely if needed- The smart controls feature is nice. I can use Alexa to change TV inputs now.- Less flickering on new tv but still have sound dropoutsHowever my issue with not having a way to watch VUDU/UV movies is a huge issue. On top is that, MoviesAnywhere doesnt tell you which movies were transferred over in 4K. So while the titles may sync, in cases of certain films (eg Deadpool 2) you only get the HD version and not the UHD/HDR one you paid for. Until this is fixed Ill leave my review at 3 stars. Our main streaming service is DirecTV Now, and this stick doesnt run it right. The app seems to works and then just freezes. When I go to run a speed test, the connection is super low, and then ramps up over time back up to full speed. Its as though the app crashes the stick. Other things seem to work fine, but not the app we use the most. Will return and continue to use gen 2 and gen 3 devices. Too bad.UPDATE: So, I deleted DirecTV Now and did a fresh install. For the past three days, things actually worked well and considered revising my rating. Then I tried to watch a little Sunday football. CBS froze over and over again and caused the app to continually crash. Thought maybe it was the local CBS stream because other channels worked fine. Then I tried the Roku I have in my kids room, DirecTV Now worked fine. Figured Id give it another go for the second game, same result. Watched Rams/Seahawks in my kids room with no issue on the Roku device. Again, other apps seem to work fine (I think) on Fire, but this stick isnt right just yet. Id wait for problems to work itself out.

Meets U.S. Coast Guard standards for marine use.

Notes from the Community

First of all, I got sent a product that is completely defective. The gauge on this reads that it needs to be recharged. This is especially aggravating due to it being a safety hazard. But, the horrors continue. This product wont let me return it without contacting the company. Amazon need to accept responsibility. They wont even let me add a photo proving what Im claiming! This is a safety item. Im baffled. I will continues to try to contact Amazon directly. DO NOT NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!! This item doesnt fit in its intended space. When I requested a return, I received a message this item is not returnable. This is NOT stated anywhere on the product description or ordering page. The First Alert fire extinguisher arrived in the condition appearing to be at the end of its usable life. The needle of the pressure gauge is so close to the undercharge red zone. I hope it would last at least a year before moving to the red zone for recharge.Update @ 7/15/18It expired within 2 months! The needle moved to the Recharge red zone now. Do you think if I should buy anything with an expiration date from Amazon in the future? Was sent a defective extinguisher with a bent handle and no charge in the extinguisher. I went to a certified fire extinguisher retailer to see if they could fix/recharge it and they said it was faulty and had a leak. Am unable to return the item per whatever policy is in place even though I had ordered it only 10 days ago. I do not feel comfortable replacing parts on something that could be used to save my home or my familys life. Hopefully, well never have to find out how good this is, but we are immensely grateful we had two extinguishers 6 months ago when our electric water heater started a fire in our utility room. We had full on blazing! The second extinguisher was just starting to run out when the fire department arrived. If it wasnt for having two and my hero of a husband, we would have lost everything. We now have four extinguishers. Kitchen, utility room, living room hidden in basket near the fire place and one in the back of the house. Since writing this review I realize we dont have one in the garage. Got one more to order.Fire was contained in the utility room, but smoke, soot and ashes affected the whole house. Contractors will hopefully have everything done in a week or so. The extinguisher showed up with its chemicals all over the outside and falling out of the nozzle. It was suppose to come full but the gauge said it was completely empty and the instructions said it was inoperable. Very disappointed. The chemicals got all in my nose too! Made it burn. I mean I hope it works when I need it? If it doesnt and I somehow dont survive the fire, Ill be sure to update the review. I based this purchase strictly on wanting a small, handy fire extinguisher specifically for kitchen use. I happen to know the classifications and intended uses of the different types of extinguishers, but my wife doesnt. I bought this and mounted it at the top of my basement stairs which is in close proximity to the kitchen and easily accessible if needed. It is compact and has a low-profile. Not too heavy to handle and operate. Most importantly it is specifically intended for oil/grease and electrical fires (B-C). The other deciding factor was that it has a pressure indicator. I was considering some of the aerosol-type extinguishers but they have no way of indicating they are still pressurized. The last thing you want to do is hope the unit will work when needed (over time, extinguishers may or may not lose pressure). This has an approved test button that you occasionally press to ensure the unit is still pressurized (it does NOT discharge any agent - it simply tests for adequate pressure). You should NEVER test extinguishers by slightly discharging them - the nozzle seal will be broken and it will slowly lose pressure. They will be rendered useless shortly after such a test. Overall this seems to meet our needs and we hope its never needed.

Description

Size:Queen This Sunbeam Heated Mattress Pad features dual zone control for individualized comfort, an easy-to-use EasySet Pro controller with 10 heat settings, and a 10-hour auto-off function for a restful nights sleep. The ThermoFine exclusive warming system senses body heat and room temperature and adjusts throughout the night for consistent, cozy heat. The 100% polyester pad is super-soft and cozy.

Notes from the Community

All the positive reviews are fake; theres just no other way to explain this. This pad is so cheaply made, it is pathetic. One of the reviewers said her bed felt like a cheap motel mattress, and I cant agree more. We have a very high end bed/mattress, and after putting this pad on, it felt like you are laying on a stack of newspaper or plastic tarp. The wires are VERY VERY VERY pronounced and you WILL feel them through your bed sheets—there is no way you cant. And there is no way anyone could be ok with how that feels. Lay chickens wire under your current bedsheets and lay on it. Thats exactly what it feels like.This product is bonafide crap. Stopped working after 6 months and I also purchases a Square Trade warranty and was told since it was still under manufactures warranty they could not help. Amazon does not have an option to return this product. I will not buy this product again nor will I buy the worthless warranty. Couldnt you have placed the plug on somewhere where you dont sleep on it?It is so annoying on your feet. Then I put it where its underneath my pillow, but sometimes my pillow so its even worse in my head. I was gonna give 3 stars, but now that I remember that you get only one.It would be so easy to put the plug on the side of the mattress or underneath! Read the reviews and ordered the pad with reluctance, big mistake. Plugged it in for the first time and both controls were blinking. Did exactly what the Sunbeam troubleshooter advice was and still no luck. I tried numerous times and finally gave up. Did I mention it is about as flimsy as you can possibly imagine, just overall poor quality. Sending it back and doing what I should have done in the first place, spending much more on a quality pad or blanket. You get what you pay for, lesson learned. After a few times using it the controller starts flashing and turns off. i have tried to contact someone to get a refund and they are passing the buck. if i could give them a zero i would. look at a different brand. i have been a prime customer for many years and i have never had this much difficulty in getting a refund . Remember those Sunbeam electric blankets from the 1990s? You know, the ones that really got so warm and toasty? Electric blankets these days are so weak. I have one and half the time, I cant even tell if the darn thing is working, even if its on HIGH. After doing some research, I discovered that the prevailing wisdom of the Internet suggested that (for some reason) a heated mattress pad would get noticeably warmer than an electric blanket, so I bought one of these for my boyfriend. (We live in different states). On my visit last week we put it on his bed and turned it on. Wow! It is so nice and warm! I wish my electric blanket worked half this well. I think next winter I will invest in one of these for my bed as well. This was my 4th purchase of a Sunbeam heated mattress pad, made just like this one. One is currently heating my daughters bed and has for at least 4 years. My first two lasted years (Im talking 7-10 or more years, really!) I bought my first for warmth when I had a big old hybrid water bed, the ones with water filled tubes tucked inside a regular mattress. My second was purchased when we replaced it with pillow top queen size.We have a deep mattress and this fits fantastic. Its made like a fitted sheet - enough room to tuck under so it doesnt pop off. Ive read complaints about the plug but weve not found it inconvenient at all. IMHO, your body learns to ignore it. This is my first one with an automatic cut off — we love this. Ive always machine washed on gentle and line dried just as instructed.I know that its less expensive than some others. The pad itself isnt made of pure cotton or anything fancy. But I have consistently received a durable, dependable, long lasting product when purchasing a Sunbeam heated mattress pad. My daughter has already added it to her list of must-haves for when she outfits her dorm next year. 75 years old and NOW I find nirvana.. (not Curt..) I hate heavy covers. Top heat blankets are strange now days. This is BLISS! I can just warm up the bed early! Sleep WITHOUT covers at all! Freedom! FREEDOM!! Sorry. i was going to write more but..its… nap time…

Notes from the Community

I love the camera. It looks really nice, and works well.My only problem is the so-called instructions. They are REALLY poorly translated from Chinese, to the point of some paragraphs being completely incomprehensible. And the instructions are WAY too minimal. Anybody up for studying how the camera operates, how the features work, and writing a decent instruction manual?? 😁 I was pleasantly surprised at how well-built this dash cam seems. It feels solid in the hand, and, though its not heavy, it feels substantial. Additionally, the functionality of it seems to be pretty intuitive. I could turn it on and get it recording without referencing the users guide, which is good, because the users guide is almost useless. Oh, it doesnt come with a memory card, and is useless without one. The battery only lasts a few minutes, too, but they tell you up front that its only for backing up videos and the camera isnt intended to run on battery. So, all in all, Im pretty pleased with it, and may buy a second one. This product is an addition to my insurance policy. It is a great help when someone dings my car and starts pointing I did it. California is famous for insurance scams involving accidents Im not paranoid just careful. Plus I want a memory card. When I received this camera and unpacked it I was totally impressed, the quality is super for the price. Works great and very easy to use and understand. I give this product a 10. If you need a car cam this is it. Small enough to put in front of mirror not intrusive. Beautiful 1080p with auto correct. Easy to set up and it automatic once set up you dont have to think about it again unless you need it one of my best buys great product price was very inexpensive for quality So far, so good! I hope I never need the camera footage! This is an excellent product. Im buying a second one for my wifes car

JINSHUNFA Wall Hooks 13lb(Max) Transparent Reusable Seamless Hooks,Waterproof and Oilproof,Bathroom Kitchen Heavy Duty Self Adhesive Hooks,8 Pack

See Price


Description

Notes from the Community

Dont listen to the bad reviews. These people obviously cant read, as it indicates they arent intended for use on painted walls and wallpaper. However, this isnt the products fault. This is a fantastic item. This thing has been hanging up in my shower for months and hasnt budged. One hook is holding up my shower caddy along with several heavy shampoo bottles and other shower products, these are great. The product is STRONG. This is true, and the product is reusable but there were NO DIRECTIONS in the box describing how to remove the product. I hung the product crooked and went to remove it and it tore the paint right off of my wall. It was only after I scrolled through about 50 customer comments to find out how to remove it and by then it was too late. There is no reason I should have to figure this out after the fact from scrolling through comments. Please please put a description INSIDE THE BOX to explain how to remove it from a wall. Off to go spackle and repair. Does the job. Even works on popcorn walls These are great! I used them to hang a number of things on tile in my kitchen. Havent removed them so I cant tell if they leave a residue at all. Im probably on my 4th pack. They are way too easy and convenient, not to mention, excellent sticking power. Ive used them to hold up gate partitions in doorways (I board dogs), hang knickknacks, hanging ladles above my grain bins, attaching curtain draw strings instead of drilling holes in my paneling, and the list goes on. I have NEVER had one fall off of the wall that I put up. The seller even thanked me for repeat orders and gave tips for removing them with the heat of a blow dryer if the need arises. This is a product that when a box runs low, I reorder so that Im never without the convenience of these sticky hooks! Oh, and they are practically invisible when mounted on paneling, etc. They look a whole lot better than a nail and you dont have to worry about finding a stud. A womans dream as far as household hanging! These stick on really well, are easy to handle and best of all dont show up much because the back is clear. They are the same size as some Command hooks, but those are highly visible due to the solid white base. Like the other hooks, these dont damage the surface if you need to take them off. I have used them to hold cords to my desk so theyre handy when I need to recharge some gadget or sync my phone music and photos using the computers USBs. They look much better than the other hooks Ive used because they arent so noticeable. Same when I use them to attach curtain tie backs to the wall behind the curtain. In some positions I can see the more obvious Command hooks Id been using, but not these, plus if I want them to fit up closer to the window frame edge, I can cut the backing to make it smaller. Because theyre not holding much weight, they still stay on fine. They are easy to remove and restick if youre not satisfied with the location. I havent even had to wash off the backs to get a good stick the second time. The bigger stick area does allow them to support more weight if needed and take a fair amount of abuse. I have two securing a surge protector power strip which gets a lot activity plugging and unplugging things. The hooks have held it securely. Honestly these hooks have been the best. Very easy to install. I cleaned off the wall, placed the hook, and then waited 24 hours before placing any items on it. Ive used it for several things, hanging plants, hanging my backpack, and hanging my trash inside of a cabinet. Its been amazing and durable. I definitely recommend purchasing this and would buy again! Bought this to hang a large clock on a porch that has vinyl siding. Didnt want to make holes in the siding. Has been up and holding clock securely for a couple of weeks now. Very pleased.

Notes from the Community

I ordered this and used it nearly every day for 4 months. It worked really well with tv audio out and Sony bluetooth headphones. Unfortunately the on/off switch stopped working and fell into the unit so it is now --- it should have lasted a lot longer,so I think the physical build quality just wasnt there, though the rest of the unit looked to be constructed well.. For $32 it wasnt worth trying to find paperwork and try for a warranty, so I decided to buy the new TaoTronics Bluetooth 5.0 and see how that one holds up.UPDATE: The seller of this item, Sunvalley Brands (I never had any problem with the seller, and I ordered the new item from them) read this review and immediately reached out to me via email offering a full refund. Great seller; Im glad I ordered the replacement from them :-) Im not one to write reviews but this device warrants the words. How amazing is this gadget. I have an old Ipod 160gig that I have fully loaded with a good portion of my music. I never thought I would be able to listen to it with my Bluetooth headphones wirelessly. My headphones are Sony made and I feel have excellent sound quality but when used with the wire I felt as if the sound quality wasnt as good. Whether imaginary or not I was convinced it wasnt up to par. Now I magically connect the the device to the Ipod and I was blown away. It takes a bit to get used to connecting/pairing the devices but once done it works and more importantly sounds great! I cant stress how impressive this device is to me so I highly recommend it. Will give it a month or two and update this review. P.S. initial charge for the device was a lot shorter time period wise as instructed and I was worried I had a defective device but so far off what was only a half hour initial charge Ive listened for over 3 and a half hours so far which is shocking. This is something Ill pay more attention to and report upon on updated review. So far? Awesome! Hope it stays this way! Although this product is meant to be stationary on a table or tucked behind a tv or stereo system. My intend for this product is as a portable receiver so I can stay connected to my phone without being tethered to it.Pros:battery life is about 15 hours + ( have not tested it beyond that)small design (slightly larger than an apple or pebble time watch)can transmit and receiver (I mainly use it to receiver BT from my phone)Cons:the forward and backward button is hard to usenit picking-but the light on this unit is real bright if you are using this at night.I own a Moto z2 Force it does not have an earphone jack. Which is why Ive been looking for a BT receiver. I also have a Pebble time (I know its old) which is where i do all my control from. skipping tracks controlling the volume is done on my watch. Mainly I use the receiver for work all I have to do is put on a t shirt with a front left pocket, poke a hole through the back and snake the ear buds. Voila! I have a BT ear buds that last over 15 hours. Keep in mind this is a tx and a rx unit meant for stationary plug and play. So theres no mic or calling capability which is fine because its use is for work and you shouldnt be on your phone anyway.P.S. I got a defected unit where the volume was god awful loud or real quiet. Email the company and they were nice enough to send a replacement. This is the main reason I give them a perfect score. I like companies that back up their products and make sure a customer is happy and not feel ripped off. Thanks Tao Tronics! With my wife keeping a different schedule than I do due to her work, I was getting a little tired of watching TV at night and having only CC as my sound: I mean, the drama of that crocodile chomping down on a wildebeest just isnt the same without the sound, regardless of whether CC says (sound of bones being crushed). This works like a charm once you figure out how. I plug the mini-USB into the back of my receiver for power, plug the minijack into the front for signal, pair the transmitter with my blue tooth headset, and voila. It even allows 2 sets to be hooked up to the same transmitter, even if I hadnt tried it. Irene from Tech Support was fantastic when I had a question on how it functions as a receiver. In that case, youll set it to Rx mode, pair it with the signal sender like your phone or laptop, and then use a connection cord to, say, an external speaker to broadcast. To me, this has rather limited use (Id just hook up my external speaker to the phone or laptop, unless being tethered is an issue there). Perhaps its just a function that would come in handy later. When fully charged, the unit has 20-hour life, even if Ive not tested this out fully to verify. Hopefully I dont jinx myself… This works perfectly and has been since September 2016. I use the transmitter in my garage woodshop and have it paired with the 3M Worktunes Wireless Hearing Protection. I had to buy a Digital to Analog Audio Converter to make it all work with my television but once that was done, I was up and running. I can hear my shows perfectly with my Worktunes over the table saw and dust collector. Even the planer which is about the loudest tool…The transmitter has been plugged in and turned on and left on since I bought it. I tried to turn it off at the end of the day, but forgot…eventually that turned into…Im just going to leave it on and see… There has been numerous power outages since then, all I have to do is turn it back on. It pairs every time with the Worktunes. I am not sure why, but there has been two occasions that the two wouldnt pair. But, 99.999% of the time I turn on the Worktunes and select Bluetooth and after a 10 second delay, BAM! I can hear my shows in the shop. Well worth the money and the cost of a Digital to Analog Audio Converter. I can go to the end of my driveway to check the mail and lose the signal about 30 feet away, so it has good range. There is no lag or delay with the picture.

Notes from the Community

When I want to watch tv at night when everyone else in the family has gone to sleep, I prefer to use bluetooth headphones.I have tried a few different bluetooth transmitters in the past but they have been hard to connect and seem to randomly drop the signal. I even had to shut the bluetooth off on my phone or the headphones would grab the phone instead of transmitter.This TaoTronics instantly connected and reconnected every time I turned the headphones on to watch cable tv. I was even able to leave my phones bluetooth on. My joy was quickly dashed when I tried the Amazon and Netflix app on my LG Smart tv. Neither app would send sound to my headphones. I contacted both TaoTronics and LG to help solve this problem. Although both customer service reps were friendly and tried to help, neither one could make this transmitter play sound for Apps . I decided to try some more settings on my tv and I accidentally found the answer to get sound from any source on my TV. In the Sound out settings, Digital Sound Out set at Auto equals no sound on Apps, set at PCM sound is crystal clear on everything. One other suggestion, plug your transmitter into a constant power source, not the tv so whenever you turn on your headphones it instantly connects. I have had everything set up for over two weeks and I havent had to touch the transmitter since the first night. Other transmitters I have had I had to hit the on/connect button nightly. I bought this to connect to my TV so I could listen through BT earphones and, when it arrived, I charged the unit and connected it using the supplied digital optical cable, set the switches to TX and SPDIF and paired it with my earbuds. Pairing was more difficult than I thought it would be but eventually my earbuds paired and I began to hear the sound from the TV. I sat about 10 feet from the transmitter so I knew I was within the specified distance for this device to work.Everything was fine for about 2 or 3 minutes and then the sound began to skip. That is, there were silent spaces in the TV sound with part of the dialog missing. After about 5or 6 minutes the sound completely broke up and I could not make sense of any of the sound from the TV. This sequence repeated itself - normal sound, missing pieces of the sound, completely broken up sound - while I listened and I eventually gave up.I also tried using the aux audio output thinking that perhaps the issue was the digital audio output from my TV but that connection was even worse.I had been using the earbuds for some time without any issue but, just to be sure, I connected them to the BT on my computer and played an internet movie without issue. I then connected it to my smartphone and again, without issue. listened to audio. I was really disappointed in this unit and wanted a replacement, making the assumption that perhaps it was the unit I received, but Amazon did not offer to send me a replacement and I was forced to choose between a refund or a gift card. I now must try to find some other unit that will work better than this one.UPDATE:As I mentioned in my review I had made the assumption that my problems, described above, were related to the specific unit I received rather than the product as a whole. I assumed this because the product had generally received very good reviews and my unit did not work well at all. Sunvalleytek customer service contacted me and offered to send a replacement unit and, when it arrived, the first thing I did was charge it and, after it had charged, connect it to my TV. As with the previous unit I used the optical connection and set the unit to transmit.I was able to pair my bluetooth headset to the unit, turned the TV mute control on and then sat down to watch. Unlike my previous experience this time the unit worked properly. I watched TV for about 20 minutes and the sound was rock solid, no skips, no misses, no breakup. I then set the cable box (I use Tivo) to play some of the recordings and they worked properly. I then connected to Netflix and watched some streaming video and it worked without an issue. As a last test I turned the DVD player on, inserted a disk and watched a bit of it and, as with the other tests this worked properly. I had no problems.One of the things I wanted to test was the time lag between words being spoken and the sound being received. I had already tried a unit from a different manufacturer and found that I had gotten about a quarter second delay between the visual indication of a sound and the recipe of the sound in my earbuds and I wanted to see if this unit was any different. While there may have been some delay it had to be very small because I generally could not see any difference between peoples lips moving and the words being played in my earbuds. This unit must have faster hardware for whatever delay there might have been to not be noticeable.I then tried this with a second pair of bluetooth earbuds and found it to also work properly. One thing I liked about this unit is that, while it is small, it is not so small as to be unstable. The other unit I had received was so small and light that a slight movement of the cable meant that the unit itself might be knocked to the floor. This unit, while small and light, is more substantial than the competitor and I appreciated that. It also has a small rubber circle on the bottom which makes it less likely to be moved accidentally and prevents it from scratching the surface it sits on.The last thing I want to mention was the speed and helpfulness of Sunvalleyteks customer service people. They contacted me right away, they sent out a replacement the same day using 2 day delivery and it was delivered on a Sunday. I consider that to be extraordinarily good customer service and I wanted to mention how helpful they were.In general I was very pleased with the replacement and have changed my review rating accordingly. I understand that sometimes a bad unit can get through the manufacturing process, even with the best quality control, and this seemed to be such a case. TaoTronics has a real winner. This neat bluetooth stays on and plays on. All I have to do is wake up, hit play on my iPod (iPhone 4S actually) and in seconds my music is playing to two different sets of bluetooth speakers — the only as far as I know that uses aptX to get around the single transmission restriction. The result is quality Hi-Fi sound in our two main living areas.My setup: iPhone >> TaoTronics>> (1) Bose Mini II and (2) Logitec Bluetooth receiver linked to palm-sized SMSL sm50 amp feeding two Bose 301 speakers. Very good quality, synched sound, balance volume.
