Notes from the Community

I really loved it but I am 74 and, while I still have a fairly good grip, I could NOT get the battery out. I tried. My sister tried. I called Bosch, and they were very nice about it but apparently the tight fit is considered a feature of the product. I hated to send it back because it is so compact and lightweight; the price was very good, and it came with two batteries. Not nice, Bosch, since this drill is otherwise perfect for people who need compact and light—youve made it unusable for the very audience it may be best suited for!Am I allowed to say that I bought my second choice, a De Walt, and I am very satisfied with it, even though it is a little heavier than the Bosch.The product return was free and simple, and my account was credited within a couple of days of Amazons receiving it. Kudos to Amazon. Ive got this drill/driver set on preorder with all possible rebates and Amazon discounts just for $119 so, I am not the one to complain about the retail price.Pros: Fit and overall workmanship is what expected from Bosch. Tool is made in Malaysia. Fills good in hand, enough power to drill a pocket hole with 1 forstner bit. Changing attachments is easy. Charger works fast.Cons: Battery retention clips are extremely stiff even for my hands. Changing the battery would be a struggle for an average teenager or a woman.Adjustment of the positions on the offset and right angle attachments were not always easy. It felt like they were catching up on something when being pulled out to adjust, not always but enough times to notice. I think with some break-in time there will be no issues.The biggest complaint by far is so called soft case. Bosch description calls it a bag, which is what it is exactly. There is almost no padding, the cheap lunch box will have more. The Velcro retention straps are too short and hard to grab. There are no dedicated straps / positions for any of the attachments. Retention strap for the spare battery is too far away from the drill handle, and as a result takes up valuable storage space which could be allocated for an attachment.Conclusion: So far seems to be adequate for what I need. I often use this with its 90° adapter and Boschs spade bits (from DSB5003) to get between closely spaced joists. First, the torque is lower than I expected considering the wondrous reviews others have given Boschs 12V power tools. Second, the 90° adapter seems only to be able to click in at three angles, e.g., 120°, 240° and 0°/360°, but offset such that youll never be able to hold the handle of the drill perpendicular to your work. Ive had 2 sets of the Bosch drill/drivers for a number of years. I like them because I am a woman with arthritis and many of the electric drills/drivers are so heavy that my hands hurt from using them. These are strong, well made and have long lasting batteries. They work better than some of the larger ones I have had in the past. Ive been an amateur carpenter/crude furniture maker all my adult life. I have every power tool and USE them. As a now aging 67+ GIRL, I find that holding my heavy 18V cordless drill is a bit hard wield, having aging girlie wrists. I really LOVE this drill. Its powerful enough for most things and high quality. Spend the extra $$$ and get this one. This is an excellent drill cabinetmakers, woodworkers, and finish carpenters. Its ability to get into tight corners makes a lot of aftermarket drill accessories and specialty drills obsolete. The only thing you will need is a flex shaft. I hope at some point the parts of this drill and the drill itself can be purchased separately. It has the same power as every other non-impact 12V drill and performs very well. There is an 18V version in Europe at the moment FYI. Also, this drill should really come in an L-BOXX, but thats nothing Kaizen foam cant fix. If you are looking to get rid of carrying speciality drills and most accessories, this is your drill. I might add that the offset attachment will drive pocket screws with a 3 bit vs a 6, but dont expect this tool to efficiently drill a pocket hole. I have a full set of the Bosch 12V power tools and they are my go-to tools for small/medium tasks (anything not requiring the big 18V tools). I purchased this set for off-site work as a space & weight saver. Couldnt be happier with this - very flexible, plenty of power (for 12V), and my 4-year old batteries still have plenty of power and capacity, leading me to believe these batteries will have a long useful life as well. I found a use for the offset driver attachment within days of receiving it. I love being able to keep bits in the head and just swap heads (from drill to Phillips driver, for example).I still need to carry the impact driver, as this tool cannot perform that function, but thats the only thing I could think to add (if indeed thats possible) to make this the perfect power tool.

Notes from the Community

Never touch the hour/minute hand! Never !!!!!!!!!The quality of this clock is unbelievable poor. The hour/minute hands are not fixed with the clock, they can be moved/removed from the clock easily; once that happened, you will never be able to put them back to the right position. That means, the time will be never correct again, never!!!!!5 whys for the Echo Wall Clock product team:1. Why this clock is so fragile?2. Since its so fragile, why dont put a glass to cover the hour/minute hands?3. If the glass is kind of expensive, why dont design the hour/minute hands and axis better to make it easier to put the hands back to the right position?4. Since its such a fragile product, why publish it before full testing, and feedback collection?5. Why ruin the customer experience by such a fragile product? Great clock. I love that it syncs with my echo. Correction this is a horrible clock. It doesnt even do its most simplistic purpose correctly. How could Amazon mess this up so bad?Update: Its been a few days and already the clock stopped displaying the LEDs for timers that are set.Another update: We came home from our 3 day Christmas trip to the Echo Clock displaying the wrong time and had a solid blue light on. Had to reset again.Update 3: Woke up this morning to the clock being 9 minutes behind from me echo show. Clock is disconnected from the show again for no reason.Update 4: I got up this morning to make breakfast. The time on the clock was correct, but when I went to set a timer the LED lights on the clock didnt turn on again. Getting pretty tired of this clock.Update 5: The batteries were dying yesterday 12/31 so I replaced them. Today 1/1 the clock got out of sync again! Now over 10 minutes ahead of the actual time, LED lights for the timer didnt work again. I checked the Bluetooth settings on my echo show and it still says its connected. Wish I didnt have issues with a clock.Update 6: Who would have thought the clock is off again. This time its slower by over 20 minutes. Ive had this thing less than a month and have had so many issues with it. Just another piece of tech that will inevitably flop.Update 7: In less than a month I had constant issues with this clock not keeping the time and not displaying the timer, the two basic functions which were the reason to purchase this clock. I therefore decided to request a refund and get out of this headache. I hope Amazon fixes the issues before the clock flops and is forever forgotten as one of Amazons fails. The style of this clock is minimalist and contemporary, and it looks nice on the wall. The quality of materials is a bit disappointing; the device feels of mostly plastic. However, people wont be handling the clock except to hang it on the wall and change batteries. Recurrent battery changing will become annoying if needed frequently. Only time will tell, and this will vary based on how often Echo timers/alarms are used.Aside from keeping time, the clock has essentially three other features:1. White LED tick marks around the clock face visually display how much time is left on an Echo timer. If you set multiple timers on an Echo device, these will be displayed as well. People who often use Echo timers will appreciate this visual representation.2. When an Echo alarm goes off, all white LEDs around the clock flash brightly several times and then stop shortly afterward. The LEDs do not display an alarm time or how much time is left until an alarm triggers.3. If you receive an Echo notification, a small circular LED above the 6 will slowly blink yellow several times and then stop shortly afterward. This feature is honestly quite useless (unless you happen to be looking at the clock shortly after a notification arrives).Pros:This clock can blend well with many interiors and operates quietly. The white LEDs are bright and nicely provide timer countdown visualizations. The unit helps ensure notice of a triggering Echo alarm.Cons:This product does not have speakers or respond to commands. Its a simple battery-powered clock that connects to one Echo via Bluetooth. The unit doesnt have the capacity to learn skills or evolve much over time, since it is essentially just a Bluetooth-paired device.Worth The Price?If you use Echo timers often, then this is probably worth it. If you dont use your Echo for timers very much, then you should pass on this one (unless you are in need of an analog clock that automatically adjusts for daylight savings time).Design: 4 out of 5Quality: 3 out of 5Ease of Setup/Use: 5 out of 5Ability to Evolve: 2 out of 5Cool Factor: 4 out of 5Value for Price: 4 out of 5

Notes from the Community

Very bright and works very good with the music Super easy to install, got done in 10mins. Did install in day time so had to wait till dark to actually see how bright are the lights. And was surprised to see the result later that day as they were just perfect. Super easy to pair with phone app as well. Over all a product worth the money. Worked well . I bought these for when I take my Jeep on the beach the inside of the car could light up for my kids I thought it would be neat. I just ordered another set for more lights in the car as well. Pretty cool and very easy to install in my PT Cruiser. The directions were clear and it works like a charm. The lights are nice and bright at night and the lights sync up with my music. Ive downloaded the Govee App and it syncs with my lights very easy. This product was extremely valuable for the money I paid to get them. The lights are CRAZY bright, the changing colors with the beat is a super cool feature to people, and its cool that it does a little light show when you turn on your car. I do have a Bluetooth radio adapter to listen to music in my car, and it seems I have a grounding issue, so I hear a high pitched noise when both are on from my music. I just go into this devices app and turn off the lights if I bugs me too much. Other than that, its a sick mod for an unbelievable deal that is easy for anyone to use! This product is really cool! Its worth the purchase. I dont usually leave more than just a rating, but I felt the need to add video with this product. Beware there are pros AND cons.Pros:Super easy to install!App interface is intuitiveWires are easily hiddenApplication, with full light spectrum and effects.Fits my Beetle 2.0T Coast perfectly!Cons:I drive a compact vehicle, something like a crossover is too big for this set up. Smaller sedans should be fine, I had to tuck away excess cables.The music setting. Playing with the microphone sensitivity setting is a must for the music setting. With rock music the mic switches from vocals to bass, depending on which one is prominent. With hip-hop/pop it typically sticks to the bass, as seen in the video. If I can, Ill add videos of different genres later.Light strips are smaller than what the advertisements lead you to believeSlight odor when you first open the package. Clears up fast. Did not install as directed since hiding the wire under the inner rocker panel would have been near impossible in my 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche, so I installed the plug/and remote control up front then put the first set of LED strips under the driver/passenger dash and ran the wires under the console to the rear and zip-tied the led strips to a support bar underneath the seats (full power adjustable seats mean there is no save or secure place to mount the strips otherwise.They look great during the day and incredible at night, I like how the brightness is adjustable on the remote, which does everything I want it to.If you want different colors or custom lighting then download the app, having been burnt by apps that go along with things like drones or action cameras, I wasnt expecting much but the govee home app is not bad, setup was a breeze and customizing the lighting was also quick and easy. Got these for my older Jeep since my overhead light has gone out and I love them. I do animal transports and sometimes need to see whats going on and these lights make it super easy. I keep remote up by me, and have also synced them to the iPhone app. Theyre bright enough to see the entire interior, but not be too much of a glare at night on the lower setting.

Notes from the Community

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 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. The deal wasnt clear when I was ordering and thought I was getting a year for $5, instead I received 1 issue for $3.99. He careful what you buy. The magazine itself is good.


Grillaholics Grill Mat - Set of 2 Heavy Duty BBQ Grill Mats - Non Stick, Reusable, and Easy to Clean Barbecue Grilling Accessories - Lifetime Manufacturers Warranty

Description

Notes from the Community

UPDATE: It appears Amazon has corrected the auto link to Ankeres. It now links to the correct Grillaholics link to purchase.BEWARE: I have purchased four of these mats from Grillaholics and have been very pleased. The current buy it now defaults to a Chinese counterfeit product that is made of unsafe material and of low quality. They have hijacked Grillaholics link. You will have to choose other sellers rather than the buy it now due to Amazons defaulting to the lower priced fakes. If you purchased one from Ankeres, I highly suggest you return it as it is unsafe.This is what the fake buy now looks like:Sold by Ankeres and Fulfilled by Amazon. Gift-wrap available. This mat works great. After reading about other people having issues with the grease accumulating on it and the recommendation was to use paper towels to soak it up during the grilling, I thought to myself that there has to be another solution to this problem. I decided to take a utility knife and cut randomly open slots on it (see photo). I am pleased to say that it was the solution to this problem. My food came out perfectly and I had no problems with the grease issue. I grilled chicken which is well known for flare ups, which I had none. The meat slid right off the mat and clean up was a breeze. The company that makes these probably should consider putting small holes throughout their mats. I was really skeptical of grill mats in general but, after doing a lot of looking around, picked up these from Grilaholics based on the number of good reviews and the reasonable price. I figured if they were going to melt all over my grill (which I still cant believe they didnt) I didnt want to waste a lot of money on them. After having used them a few times I can say they would be a bargain at twice the price. Im probably going to get an extra pair to have in the RV. At the end of the day Im going to end up saving a ton in non-stick spray!I love that they are delivered flat (thought they would come rolled up and Id have to press them with books for a week) and after a quick wash are ready to use. I have a charcoal grill and like to bring the heat right up to the grate to sear the meat for a few seconds and the mats took it like a champ, grill marks even transferred through.Cleaning the mats is much easier than cleaning the cast iron grill grates, just make sure you give them a proper wiping off with a paper towel before placing them in the dishwasher.These will also be great to take to the park when we go out for the day - Ive never thought I would actually use the public grills before, but with these I wont worry.If youve been hesitant about getting a grill mat, dont be. First off, as a self-proclaimed grilling aficionado and a BBQ purist, I dont typically use anything but hardwood lump coal and a match, but I thought Id give this a try. Simply put, this mat is amazing! Let me break down the benefits…1) Taste: Ive used similar grill mat products and experienced a burned-plastic taste (which other reviewers warned me about). Not with this grill mat. This mat preserves the integrity of whatever Im cooking.2) Heat transfer: I prefer my steaks seared but not charred, so I get the coals nice and hot (at least 600 degrees) and sear both sides. This mat not only allows the heat through, but I can even get those highly coveted grill marks through the mat! Major plus in my book. Plus, when Im cooking something greasy like burgers or brats, theres no arm hair-singing grease fire. Not even an occasional flare-up, which is great, considering arm hair is a requirement of a true backyard BBQer.3) Clean up: Arguably, my least favorite part about grilling is the clean up. I like to create a mess, not clean one up. When Im done using this mat, I can literally walk it inside (its cool to the touch) and wipe it down with a paper towel and throw it in the dishwasher. Done. Ive even started taking a spare mat with me to the grill in the neighborhood park. Those public grills are disgusting, but with my trust grill mat, my food never touches the rusty, Hepatitis-laden grates.Oh, and Id be remiss not to mention the utility of these mats, too. On the days that Im cooking inside, I use this mat in the oven. Baking cookies? Slap one of these bad boys down on the baking sheet and no more scraping burned cookie remnants off of the metal sheet. Cooking a roast? Put this on the bottom of the pan and presto! Clean up has never been easier. I even used the mat as a catch-all below a pie pan (no one likes when your whole man-lair (read: house and kitchen) smells like burned toast.Overall impression: Two man-thumbs up!

Day 1:Took one last night and pooped twice. First time was pretty big. The coffee I had was a huge mistake. My bowel evacuated quickly and kinda liquidy.Day 2:Big poop this morning! Stomach cramped a bit but just pooed it out. Later in the day it hit me and I farted really loud in front of my boss. Not sure if this pill is a mistake, but its doing its job.Day 3: some stomach cramping but it all exited just fine. I had to stop at a gas station on the way to work to do my business, it wouldnt wait.Day 4: IM MELTING OUT MY BUTT. Save me!!Day 5: I think my stomachs getting used to it. Make sure to drink lots of water.Day 6: almost there… my colon better be clean.Day 7: I successfully completed a week. I recommend this product. But be weary of the farts, stomach cramps, and always be close to a toilet! OMG-Lets just say-This stuff really works and could change your life.I started the program on a Thursday in anticipation of needing to remain close to home and a bathroom over a long weekend. My first mistake was under-estimating the amount of toilet paper I would need-I figured one roll a day and I had 5 rolls to get me through 4 days. By Saturday morning, I was out of TP so I jumped into the shower, my 5th shower in 2 days, and drove the 20 minutes to a grocery store. I knew it was risking maneuver as Id been hitting the toilet every 20 minutes but I felt like things had progressed through my system and was slowing down-This was my 2nd mistake. As I approached the grocery store, I felt a gassy bubble approaching my exit and started feeling a little uncomfortable. I got out of my car and when I did, things started shifting internally and that little gassy feeling felt like a full on avalanche approaching.As I walked into the grocery store, I started looking for the restroom-which of course was in the back of the store up a flight of stairs. I briskly walked towards my goal and by the time I reached the back of the store, I was walking like The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. My 3rd mistake was thinking that I would be able to relieve some pressure by letting out a little gas-That was not gas. At the base of the stairs and the restroom only 20ft away, I took one step up and that was enough to break the dam of fecal hell. That gassy feeling was not gas at all.At this point, I had nothing to lose and sprinted into a stall. As I sat there an absolute mess in a graffiti ridden, grocery store bathroom stall, I started reflecting on my lifes decisions and what led up to this moment of utter embarrassment. It was at that moment, that I found god. I sat there, not quite in tears, praying for a change of life style-asking god for forgiveness for my sins. I started thinking of the dog that I gave away when I couldnt responsibly take care of him, the girlfriend I cheated on in college, and other life regrets. After about 20 minutes, and another round of colon discharge, I got myself together only to run out of toilet paper again-My sincere apologies to the Kroger store in VA as I had to use hand towels to clean up, tossing my underwear in the trash and clogging the toilet. My last mistake, which was technically my first mistake, was wearing grey sweat pants and not wearing a baseball hat to hide my shame. Needless to say, I was able to buy 2 of the largest packs of TP and head home where the cycle continued for the next 2 days.I lost 7lbs in 4 days.I recommend-Stocking up on TPRemain close to a bathroomHave your laundry completed with extra towelsDrink lots of waterIf you have to leave the house, pack a suit case of cleaning materials and backup clothesWear a hat if you leave the house-It just feels right and could be used in an emergency I am Autistic, and one of the wonderful (😭)comorbities that tend to tag along is gastrointestinal issues. In my case, severe.If your getting on here complaining about how it worked, but it was too much, blah blah blah…NO.Imagine for a second that for all of your life, since you were a newborn baby never having any sort of regular bowel movements. Imagine that you can go 3 weeks with literally nothing, and then when anything does happen its basically nothing. Your stomach hurts and aches severely every day and you actually dont know what it feels like to never be in pain. It affects the quality of your life, every wonderful event, every vacation (honeymoon!), every single aspect of your life is affected by your gastrointestinal issues. Doctors wont believe you, doctors just tell you to add more fiber or take milk of magnesia. You plead for help, but people cant believe it is really as bad as you say it is. Nothing youve tried over the counter has ANY effect on you. You live this way far into adulthood, then you come across THIS.Dr. Tobias Colon: 14 Day Quick CleanseEven high doses of laxatives in the past hardly worked, but this supplement did. I dont have to worry about when it will work or if it will work. Take it at night with plenty of water, the next morning it will work (for me). It works exactly as promised, and let me tell you for somebody who has never come across anything that has worked as promised, this is a heaven sent product for me.I really dont care if it helps me lose weight, because my stomach problems are so severe.I just want to come across a product that works, and this does.So if anybody out there can relate to my story, give this a try.Thank you Within the first couple of days I noticed a huge difference! I wasnt gassy although I know someone else who took it and was very gassy. I definitely had to go to the bathroom several times a day. I followed the directions and took 1 capsule at bedtime with water for 3 days then did 2 capsules. I lost a total of 7 pounds and a difference in appearance as you can see in the pictures. It definitely works if you eat a lot of processed foods or junk foods. This stuff is THE BOMB. And by bomb, Im referring to what Ive been doing in the bathroom since taking this product. I have no idea what all this stuff is thats coming out of me, but it smells like its lived in me since I was in diapers. My poor dog Bailey hides under the bed now anytime I go to the bathroom. I think she has PTPD - Post Tobias Poop Disorder. Ill be checking Dr. Tobias other products to see if he has anything to help her overcome her trauma. Anyway - if you want a product that thoroughly cleanses you, this is it. It works. Too well. Stay hydrated. Ill leave you with some important advice - Dont trust a fart.

Notes from the Community

You know, design-wise, a box of Kleenex isnt the Space Shuttle. All it really has to do is let the top tissue stay handy (not fall back into the box), and then pop up the one behind it. And the reason I buy Kleenex brand is because theve done that with a decent quality 2 ply tissue my whole life of over 50 years. If I wanted to reach into the box, Id buy Scotties or something else.But of late Kleenex seem hell bent on screwing it up (no doubt trying to cut costs). I switched to these short 125-tissue boxes precisely BECAUSE in the larger boxes, once youd used a certain amount, the top tissue would ALWAYS fall back into the box, and becomes tough to get out again. And this happened over and over. That doesnt happen as much on the short boxes, and if it does, you can reach the next tissue without going into the box up to your wrist. But is seems that ever since theyve switched from the gray boxes to these blue/orange floral boxes, the quality has dropped again. In these boxes, of late, you can no longer pull ONE tissue out with the next one being stuck to it and coming out along with it. Worse, Id say 1 in every 4 boxes has great big deposits/clumps of Kleenex dust that eventually comes out of the box with a tissue and makes a powdery mess.Again. THIS ISNT ROCKET SCIENCE. Kleenex KNOWS how to make tissue boxes without these problems. But the product in these boxes are getting cheaper and crappier. Please KLEENEX — restore some quality and provide boxes that work without problems, and without clumps of dust in them. Ill gladly pay a little more money for less aggravation. These floral boxes arent good! Ive been buying this size box of Kleenex for our office for years. They used to come in the multi-gray colored leaf pattern box and those were GREAT! For some reason this new orange and blue floral box isnt the same standard of box. The liner that makes the pop-up design work appears defective, as it doesnt stay in place so you get a handful of tissues instead of just the one you want. Its very annoying to have to pick up the box and be very careful to pull just one out while holding down the liner that surrounds the tissues. We just received the second case of these and they are as bad as the first. I was hoping the first case was a defective batch, but the second case is the same. I wont be buying these again. PLEASE BRING BACK THE PREVIOUS BOXES OR FIX THESE SO THE POP-UP FUNCTION WORKS AND THE LINER STAYS IN PLACE, ALLOWING FOR ONE TISSUE AT A TIME! I need boxes this size for the multiple vintage tissue boxes I have around the house. I used the 85 count Kleenex tissue box for many years (the geo print box in the photos) but Walmart has discontinued it recently, so I had to find an alternative. There are no listings of ANY kind that have the dimensions of this box, so you can see my pictures attached. The 85 old count is slightly taller, despite the lower tissue count. This is a true vintage size box. Now the downsides - (1) tissues at first come out in a huge clump; I had to remove 7 to get it to have a decent start. (2) The perforation on top goes ALL the way across the plastic. No regular consumer sku of Kleenex does this, so I have no idea why this is a feature in this professional (aka doctors office) version. It bothered me enough that I put tape on both sides, but that isnt working perfectly. (3) The branding across the top of the clear plastic is RIDICULOUS. You can see it clearly across the room on every box. Again, this isnt a consumer sku, but this is so heavy-handed in my opinion. With a few easy tweaks this box would be perfect but other than giving away my prized tissue boxes from the 50s and 60s that predate the super-sizing of America with 3000 count tissue boxes, I suppose this is my option. The price is reasonable too. Thanks for carrying, Amazon! This is the type of tissue box you find in hotel rooms.As far as tissue paper goes, these are okay. They work for what they are intended for. They are the most soft, thick, and durable but they are the best bang for your buck. I love bulk ordering them so I dont have to worry about restocking when I run out. 12 boxes for under $17 is a no-brainer for me!Like I mentioned, these arent heavy-duty or particularly strong. If youre having a really bad cold and blowing your nose violently, these will break on you. When thats the case, I use a couple sheets to prevent that from happening. For the price, you can accord to double or triple up on sheets.I also love the signal sheets that warn me when I am running low and reaching the end of the box. At first, I was weirded out by the cream color sheets, but now that I know what they are for, I love knowing when I need to replace the box.Note: The design isnt the same as the one in the thumbnail with orange/blue flowers. Its a grey floral design which, honestly, I prefer. The advertisement for this product says it comes with a case. By a case they mean the cardboard box that most multi boxes of tissues come in. They think a cardboard box is a case! Deceptive advertising! Also each of the 12 boxes of tissues have been compacted down in size, as is the new trend in selling multi boxes of tissues on Amazon. This is not a good thing! This is a bad thing. The itty bitty teeny weeny flat boxes, make the tissues very very difficult to pull out of each separate box and use. There fore the new package-ing design is not user friendly to users. I used to be a regular buyer of multi-boxes of tissues on Amazon, but never again! I will now have to go back to Costco for my tissues, where I can actually feel and touch the product before purchasing!

Notes from the Community

This camera is the best money ever spent. Just caught someone breaking in to my apartment to steal pain medication from my son a week after brain surgery. The guy the apartment sent to change the locks was the guy in the video!! This camera has worked well for me, a non-tech person. I have tried to answer as many of the common questions asked about this camera as I could.I am not sure why, but there is a lot of misinformation out there, especially in some of the top reviews. Some of the problems have been fixed in software updates, but much of the information is just not correct. Hopefully these reviews will be updated at some point.(Edit 8/11/2018 I have noticed many of those top reviews with bad info and most of those camera caught the thief video reviews are gone for some reason). You can download and watch videos on a PC with the free plan (in the last 24 hours) You can watch live stream on a computer via cloudcam.amazon.com You can turn off audio playback (from the app) You can invert the video (from the app) You can turn of the infrared night light (from the app)UNPACKAGINGPackage came on time and was without any damage, but there was no padding inside the shipping box. Included in the main box were the camera, USB cable, AC adaptor for 110 voltage, small setup manual, wall mount and two drywall screws (see photos).OVERALL FIRST IMPRESSIONSCamera seems well made and a little smaller than I thought it would be. All items were included and in good condition.The image on the live view in daylight was good (see photo), images appeared sharp and easy to identify. Sound was crystal clear. I turned on the TV, went into another room and was easily able to watch the TV and hear the sound very clearly when it came through. There were some breakups of the sound at times though, making me miss some of the audio detail. But night vision is dark and grainy, it is not easy to make out itemsSETUPSet up took me less than 11 minutes which includes downloading the app and logging into all accounts. I am not a big tech guy but setup was quite easy. Basically you just plug the camera in to the AC adapter, download the Amazon Cloud Cam app to your phone, wait for the blue blinking light on the camera to change to a pulsating blue and green light, and you will hear a chime sound. This means the camera is ready for setup. Then you just hit the setup button on your phone and in about 3 minutes it is working. I am using a Moto E as my video source and for the app.HOW IT WORKSYou can watch live view or see the video clips the camera took upon it detecting movement. It quickly took several short videos detecting movement when I walked around. I also received a sound and text notice on my phone of Motion detected every time it detected motion and took a video, and when I touch the notice it will play the video for me. I do seem to get a lot of We were unable to play this video error codes when I first try to play the video, but usually it will play when I hit the blue replay button. I have not upgraded my plan so I will only get the last 24 hours of video. It does not take pictures but you can easily do this by just taking a screenshot (see photo) on your android phone, normally this is just hitting the power button and volume button at the same time. Or you could do a Print Screen on your computer when viewing recorded video clips. You can view the recorded videos AND download video clips from a PC with the free plan, just go to www.amazon.com/clouddrive, sign in, then when watching your videos in the upper right hand corner there is a download icon. You can also view live feed or videos up to 24 hours any time with the basic included plan on your cell phone or computer.GLASS WINDOWSIt will take video through a window as it can detect movement. Image for me was still pretty good. But at night the infrared light will glare badly on the windows blurring your view almost completely. You can turn off the infrared light via the app though, and using just a porch light I captured cool videos of many animals at night.WHAT I DO NOT LIKEIn my opinion this camera has poor night vision. It does have the ability to see live view from a computer even though many reviews say you cannot do this. Just go to cloudcam.amazon.com to set it up.I set this camera up to watch my car in my driveway as a test, but at night even at low sensitivity it goes constantly, recoding everything. OK, no problem yet. But when I go to Amazon Drive, I see a lot of recorded videos that I just want to delete. But as of now, I have to look at each one individually, and then hit the delete button each time. I would think this could be MUCH easier. I might take a star off for this in the future (maybe it is just something I do not see or have figured out?).Edit: Thx to Regolith who gave me an option to quickly delete the videos, see his/her two comments under the comments section, they worked well for me. It can work for the phone or the computer.ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS ASKED You can download videos to a PC on the free plan in the last 24 hours You can view live stream on a PC via cloudcam.amazon.com It has no local SD storage Sound plays very clearly and loud You can turn off audio playback It only records if it detects movement This is an indoor camera only, it is not waterproof You can turn the camera on/off through the app When the camera detects motion, you receive a text and sound alert via a cell phone You can turn off the IR (infrared night light) It does not pan or zoom Night vision is dark and grainy, not easy to make out photos While camera viewing is wireless, it requires a wire to power it (it is not battery operated) You can have the camera image rotate 180 degrees for ceiling mounting Does not require a base station (some do, I have no idea what a base station is for)THOUGHTSI have not owned another camera to influence me one way or another.I have continuously updated this review as I have used and tested this camera out. Sorry to write so much, I know most people do not like detailed long reviews but I always write what I would want to know about an item before I make a purchase. Any misinformation please let me know or if you have any questions please ask via comments, I will answer what I can. Its a nice camera. Good quality and compact size. Capturing the sound is good, although not the best quality vs other cameras. The biggest issue and I think most important, is the camera will NOT send you a motion alert until AFTER the event has concluded. So if someone is in your home and the motion is constant, the camera will continue to capture the event, but NOT report it to you until motion has stopped. So that may when the person is leaving your place… Not three weeks after installing the Amazon Cloud Cam I received an alert of motion at our hunting cabin. There should not have been anyone there and I was surprised to find video of someone breaking-in and collecting our tools and hunting gear to take with him. I was not able to catch him in real time, but I was able to alert the Sherriff Dpt. within minutes of him leaving. With the 25 separate videos of the suspect the cloud Cam provided, the Sherriff Dpt. were able to quickly find him, our property, and put him in jail. Well worth the price of admission to put a bad guy in jail. We ordered this camera on thanksgiving just because it was on sale. It was delivered by Saturday and I installed it immediately. Sunday my family and I went out of town and I was excited to be able to watch our dog through the cloud cam app. On the way home Sunday evening, I received a notification that motion was detected. I open the app and see that my house had caught on fire and my dog was stuck inside. After calling 911 and a neighbor to break in to rescue our dog, I reopened the app to see the entire room filled with smoke and the fire blazing in the kitchen. Luckily this app saves videos for a week so I was able to share them with our fire department. I was also able to download the videos as well as zoom in to see what caused the fire (my dog hit the stove burner on). The camera is now melted and ruined, but I am forever grateful. I will order another one when we can live in our home again. Thank you Amazon for the sale and thank the universe nothing worse happened! I got the Amazon Cloud cam to see what my cats do during the day. Today, I had left the house and was out running errands. I got an alert that motion was detected in my Kitchen. I looked at the live view and saw a person had broken into my home. I used the microphone feature and yelled at him to get out of my house and told him the police were on the way. He immediately left. Thank you Amazon - without my cloud cams, this could have had a very different ending.
