Update below…Ive had several different brands and models of robot vacuums, and this one seems great, but it seems to just fall short on performance.Overall, I would recommend this robot to people that dont have carpet, and dont have pets with long hair.Things that I really do like about it. - It seems to do a pretty good job of getting itself unstuck - When it does get stuck, it doesnt alert the world with noise, it sends an alert to the app. This is useful when running it at night. - Its quiet enough to run at night. Its on a timer and runs around the downstairs while everyone is asleep upstairs. - Its low profile enough that it gets under the couch - The round shape means that it doesnt get stuck when working through the chairs that are tucked under the dining room table.Things I dont like - It bounces around the house. There doesnt seem to be any logic to how it cleans. This makes it take much longer that it should. - Suction is mediocre, even on the highest setting. It does a good enough job on the solid surface floors, but seems to push things around the carpet. I tend to find spun up wads of pet hair that the brushes have moved around to the point the robot wont pick it up. - Relies on brushes. The roller system does not go completely side to side, and the passes do not appear to overlap enough to the point that the roller hits every section of the floor. Its not even capable of getting a roller within several inches of the wall. - It seems to wedge itself under the refrigeratorUpdate:After running this for a while, I noticed that it didnt seem that it was getting everything clean. I followed up with support to find that the robot has no location awareness, and can only clean on its first charge. If it doesnt get the entire floor done, it will not resume when it is recharged.The floor is between around 700 sq ft (U shaped) and it does not get the entire floor.With this new information I have to downgrade my overall rating to two stars. I cannot recommend this to anyone with even a moderately sized area that needs to be maintained. Great value, great connectivity to Wi-Fi, quiet, great avoidance of stairs, or worse, high level drop. We have iron rails with a clearance of about 4 inches at the bottom, and were terrified at the thought of our new unit dropping to the lower floor. At first, we used the provided magnetic tape, but then realized that the tape is not for drop avoidance, so we tried it without. Afraid that it would drop, we were ready to try to catch it. But, thankfully it did not drop. Our hallway is approximately 14 feet in length, and it overlooks a lower floor. Kudos for this feature. The 35C model is basically the same as the 30C model, but with a plastic top instead of the glass top, also it has four buttons instead of one of the 30C. I like the looks of the 30C better, but the buttons of the 35C better. Also, the 30C remote control response seems to be a bit better than the 35C, but Im not sure. They both seem to have the same power, they do a great job picking up dust, and dog hair. We are surprised with all of the dust and hair that both units pick up daily, from an apparently clean wooden floor.The BAD, neither unit is able to find its way home (the charging base) unless its in the same room, and even then both struggle to find it. If there is a way to hone in to the charging station, I will upgrade to a 5 stars review. We are not addressing durability, because we have just purchased both, to see wich one we like better, but at this point are considering keeping both. By the model number the 30C seems to be an older model, but yet it is more expensive, perhaps due to its glass top? Again, following the logic in the naming of these units, the 35C would seem to be a higher end model, a newer model, but yet has a lower price tag, and a less appealing plastic top. The Eufy manufacturer representative (who was very nice) could not explain the reasoning behind the models incongruity in the name and the pricing. It seems that the main focus for choice would be looks, and price.UPDATE - the company reached out to me and explained how the return to home base sensor works. In addition, they explained that for larger floors with multiple rooms, an extra base may be required. The extra base works like a charm. Albeit, the 35C has not required it so far. I love my 35C, and so far is going strong. Well come back to attest to durability. I own a Eufy 30 and am pleased with it. It originally squeeked but we stuck it in the basement and it performs well. However we got the Eufy 35C for upstairs and although this one didnt squeek there seems to be an issue with it. When returning to the charging base it will stop in front of the charger and I have to push it the rest of the way. This is highly annoying since I bought it to clean and charge automatically. Overally I like Eufy products, but so far have to say Id pass on the 35C. You pay way more for a worse performer than the 30.

Magazine is not as good as it used to be. Also RD auto renewed my subscription early without notice. Still working to cancel it. It is not the old Readers Digest. It seems politically flavored & preachy, and reads like one writer does all the writing. Im sorry to say the Quotes sections is horrible. The true stories are good and the humor at work, life and military are still funny. I love it accept, it deleats my magazines. I sometimes do noit get to read an issue because Im too busy. I paid for it why then does the app delete my past issues, even if unread? Shame! Will have to cancel. I have always enjoyed Readers Digest. But I never subscribed because I have a bad habit of hoarding magazines that I like, then eventually have to give them away or throw them away, so for years I only read R.D. in the Doctors or Dentists office (my parents subscribed when I was growing up). Now that I can get it electronically, and at such a great price, I took advantage of that. It took a little bit of experimenting to familiarize with the navigation, because it doesnt work the same way as with books; but its pretty simple once you get used to it. HOWEVER, I just got my 2nd month issue. I had not finished reading my first issue, and although I was able to locate the 1st issue in my newsstand library, when I clicked on it, it tells me waiting to download but never does, so I cant get back to previous issue to finish reading or to re-read previously enjoyed articles. I see this as a serious flaw in the subscription process. If this Isnt corrected, I may not renew my subscription when the time comes. LOVE the digest. Am super bummed to learn that I cant get it on my Kindle fire. Most puzzling. Cant imagine what prevents it. up to 1/3 of this magazine is pure ads. there is very little actual article content. compare to decades older RD mgazines and you will understand what i mean. cancelled subscription. i am not paying for more ads Growing up, RD was a staple of literary genius. I think all the retirees are rolling over in their graves after what RD has become. Its boring, they make grammatical errors (or should I say errors since they misuse said sky comma all the time now), and worst of all they are POLITICAL. So sad. HEY!!!!! Where have all my issues gone? This is B.S. I paid for them they should be in the cloud. Why wasnt I notified about this mass dumping of magazines? How about a refund for past unread issues. I subscribed to RD so I could read at my leisure now they are gone. You owe everyone an explanation.

Notes from the Community

After reading the reviews and the inexpensive $8.95 price tag, I thought this magazine would make a great gift for my handy husband. He wasnt impressed with the first two issues and complained of advertisements crowding the magazine. He was excited to read a good article on beginning welding in his 3rd issue. I took some time to leaf through the magazine before writing this review. The advertisements are exhausting. For example, in the first 10 pages of one issue, I counted 3 full page advertisements and 3 half page advertisements. Its like that throughout the remainder of the magazine as well. This is really unfortunate as it takes away from the readability of the magazine. There is some useful information presented such as stuff we love which outlines favorite DIY tools, material, and gear. There are Pro tips (example: installing an irrigation system), reader DIY tips, and a handful of projects with decent instructions. Unfortunately, most of the projects havent interested my husband. We wont be renewing this again.I havent had any problems with unwanted auto-renewal of my magazines on Amazon as long as I follow these steps to turn it off:1) Go to your account and look under Membership and Subscriptions.2) Find Print Magazines.3) Once selected, you will see all of your current magazine subscriptions and when they will be renewed at the lowest Amazon price.4) Simply turn off the auto-renewal setting by selecting auto-renewal settings and turn off.Ive been subscribed to all of my magazines from Amazon for over 2 years now and have never had a payment request from the magazine company or a continuation of magazines arriving when I said I didnt want them to. Its easy and worry free. Some content was really good, but the adds to content balance just didnt work for me. Pretty sure it was at least 60/40 ads to content. I made the mistake of signing up. It took several months to even get the first issue, and in total I have only received a few more since signing up ten months ago.Complete disappointment. SO many ads now… Im glad I didnt pay full price. Im 28 and viagra ads every other page aren necessary. I bought this for my husband and paid $15 for two years. We have gotten 1 issue in 3 months and 5 bills saying we owe $10. This is an awful deal. So happy that I subscribed to this magazine…The Family Handyman. Every issue is Full of interesting and needed information. All my friends want to borrow… I now know what Im getting friends for Christmas their own subscriptions of The Family Handyman. The price is quite reasonable for the enjoyment and information This subscription seems to come intermittently. The magazine is mostly advertisements. We wont renew. Received my first issue 2 months ago and have never received one since. First issue took 2 months to start. Signed up for 24 issues. If I do get 24 issues, it should only take 4 years to get them all!

Got Echo Show as gift from my son last Christmas. At first we had it in our bedroom but after realizing that Alexa is watching and listening to us all the time we decided to place our Echo Show in our living room. I have also installed smart switches and plugs to control lights in various parts of the house and also paired the Echo with different bluetooth speakers. The problem is I have to go near the Echo to give Alexa the command. If I want to listen to music in our bedroom I have to go out of our room and be near Alexa to ask her to play music and switch to bluetooth speaker In our bedroom. Now with Alexa Voice Remote I can give command while Im on bed. To make sure Alexa is listening first command is to ask her to connect to bluetooth speaker on my bedside table or to my TV soundbar (need to call out specific speaker name that was registered in Echo during tha pairing process). From then on I can talk to Alexa as if Echo is my side and I dont have to worry that Alexa is listening coz you need to press talk button for Alexa to hear you (lol). By the way, the instruction that comes with the Alexa Voice does not include pairing with Echo Show and so for a moment Ithought it was made to Echo and Echo Dot only and will not work on Echo Show but It did not take long for me to find the instruction from Amazon Device Support. Im truly happy with this purchase. this thing is a useless lump… IF YOU WANT MULTIROOM AUDIO CONTROL. hear me out. you pair it with one Echo (as the website says). no problem. you start multiroom audio (either from the voice remote, by shouting at alexa or from another room whatever). as SOON as you start multiroom audio the echo this remote is paired with… DISCONNECTS the remote. you cant even change volume, let alone stop or change audio. NO WHERE does it say this on this ad, or in amazon help. amazon support says this is considered controlling multiple devices and isnt supported. throwing it in a drawer since i didnt keep the box. This will be my 4th… YES FOURTH remote I had to re-purchase after the other ones stopped working(all in 2017!!!). If you check all the negative reviews I have had all of the same problems. 1-The voice remote button stopped working 2-the mic button works, but alexa never answers 3-the entire remote stopped working (when I inserted new batteries the remote started to get warm…I thought it was going to start a fire). The only reason why I keep getting new remotes is because the brick and mortar amazon store is around the corner from my job and keeps allowing me to exchange/return at no cost. The voice remote is a device that has become part of my every day and I find I cannot be without it. From working out in a different room from my echo dot to streaming music in an outhouse and outdoors its VERY convenient and useful. Amazon…please if you are reading this FIX THE PROBLEMS ONCE AND FOR ALL. I am not rough with these remotes. I do not perspire on these remotes…I have not dropped the remotes…they are not durable. Please address these issues at your next meeting!!! This hasnt worked for me. I have several Amazon dots and Echo devises, and am generally very impressed with their design and operation. However, while the dot I have installed with an outdoor audio system works seamlessly when I speak to it directly, when I use the Alexa voice remote it doesnt recognize 90% of my music requests from my extensive Amazon Prime library. It will recognize generic requests such as play Beethoven, Jazz, etc.), but if I request a specific artist, song, or album from one of the 3,000+ albums in my Prime Music library it invariably fails, and pulls up something completely unrelated to my request, or tries to direct me to Pandora. I dont write many reviews unless the product in question is extremely bad or extraordinarily good. In this case I am happy to say this was the later.If you enjoy playing with you echo dot, But find yourself screaming to get alexa to stop, you will love this remote. If you hooked your echo dot to a big home stereo and use it like a voice activated jukebox (only way better!!!) you will love this remote. The range is awesome it goes through all the walls in my house. I can turn off the lights in my bedroom by voice even though the echo dot is in the front room. You just have to remember that when you use the remote you do not have to say the trigger Alexa just push the button with the microphone icon on it hold it down for a second so that it has time to trigger the dot, and say Play Led Zepplin stairway to heaven or whatever you desire to do. Or whatever wifi things you have configured for your echo. I have tplink lights in several rooms so I can just say my bedroom off or my bedroom on etc. Plus the remote has a pause fast forward play and rewind on it so if you are playing your song library you can just hit pause or go to the next song with it or hit the mic button and say next. I think the negative reviews I have read in the past were because people did not understand how it works

My wife likes to read novels that she downloads from Amazon onto her Samsung tablet. She keeps the tablet by her recliner and plugs it into a charger on the wall behind her recliner. We have two Pit Bull dogs. One likes to run around behind the furniture. This dog got caught in the charging cord from my wifes tablet and jerked it off into the floor. This ruined the charging port in the tablet and it could not be repaired.To help prevent this on the new tablet I bought my wife, I got this very nice power strip. The heavy braided cord lays flat on the floor so the dog doesnt get caught in it. I positioned the power strip on the floor between my wifes chair and a coffee table. Theres no need for a charger since this power strip as high-powered USB ports built in. I just plugged in a charging cable and my wife is ready to go. And it works great. Its looks very beautiful on my computer desk. I like the fact that it has 3 USB ports which always comes in handy along with the fact that it has 3 outlets which should have me prepared for just about anything! Im very happy with this purchase it looks like itll last a very long time the cable Braided and the device all around looks very solid. Especially at this price its a great buy I ordered this power strip to make the most out of my overcrowded outlets. The USB outlets are really convenient as well. I like the fact that I can power both corded appliances and USB ones without having a long power strip. This one looks really nice and appears to be well made, as the cord definitely seems heavy duty.Will update if anything changes. Got this in the mail quickly. Works just like an extension except I can plug my computer, light, and diffuser then use the USB ports to charge my phone and Kindle. I especially like the long cord since I dont have an outlet nearby. Very pleased with this purchase. With all the devices I have that use USB chords this is the perfect extension chord for AC and USB power. I can work on my computer, charge my phone and tablet, and power my USB smart light, all while keeping my laptop plugged in. My only wish would be that it had some sort of surge protection built into it, living in an area with frequent and active thunderstorms. While the fire department would probably have fits, I got around that by plugging it into a surge protector.The compact size and round form factor is especially nice as it takes up less room than a traditional surge protector/power strip, and makes plugging in multiple chords a lot easier. Highly recommended. The only outlet near my main workstation at home is behind my desk. This makes it difficult to plug in items I use and dont like to keep plugged in when not in use, like my electric kettle. This power strip solves that problem nicely and looks nice, too.I also like that it has the USB ports. I can charge my tablet or phone if needed and still have them handy.Im glad I bought this! This review is for Desktop Power Strip with 3 Outlet 4 USB Ports 4.5A, Flat Plug and 5 ft Long Braided Extension Cords for Home and Office, ETL Listed, White, sold by One BeatTruth be told I purchased solely this for a cruise. It WAS NOT ALLOWED ON THE CRUISE SHIP (nothing with extension cords allowed on Royal Carribean).Since I had it, I set it up in my bedroom. The cord is nice. The plug is flat with the cord coming out the bottom which means it takes up very little room behind furniture! It is also a grounded (3 prong) plug, for safety. The extension cord is 5 feet long and is braided and it is nice. Very flexible and smooth. There are three outlets and 4 USB ports, all supporting a total of 4.5A. Please note, there is NO SURGE protection with this unit, so be aware of this.I give this 4 stars as I feel I was misled that this would be allowed on my cruise. While it has no surge protection which is a cruise requirement, the extension cord makes it a No for cruising. So far I have had no issues with any of the features of this strip. If I do I will return and update my review.If you find this review helpful please click the button so I know! The form factor is good for size and number of plug and usb outlets. I am not sold on the plug cable as it is more noticeable than than a white electrical wire. I intended to mount this on the back of my bedroom nightstand to control charging wires, lamp and clock radio plugs, etc. It has no provision for wall/furniture mounting so I will try Velcro but I am not sure whether or not it will stay in place when pulling out a plug. It is designed for taking on a cruise so it does not have surge protection and for home use I would like surge protection. When charging multiple devices from the 4 usb ports the max output is 4.5 amps which is not bad but it does not support Qi Fast Charging standard like lateer model Samsung Galaxy and multiple other devices use for fast charging so these devices charge slower than they are capable of charging. Still cant find a smaller, mountable power strip that has usb port(s) that support Qualcomm Fast Charging (Qi) standard.
