I've had these out in my big bag yard out in the country for a couple of weeks now testing them out. I set them about 25 feet apart up against my fence shining on some flower beds surrounded by stone. It's pretty cool because the yard used to be pitch black at night but now I can look out back and see where my fence is and the gentle warm white glow shining on the flower beds. Every once in a while a cat will walk under the light and trip the motion sensor and all the LEDs light up super bright for about 15 seconds. And they are very bright. They sit about 60 feet from my bedroom window but when the motion sensor is tripped I see the light cast through my bedroom window. They are very small and fit in the palm of your hand. Included are two mounting screws and a small pin tool to turn on the light when it first arrives. So far they have survived rain storms and high winds and keep on shining. The way they are positioned on the fence makes the solar part shaded for the first few hours of the day so they only get about 75% of the available sun throughout the day. Even with that amount of sun exposure they remain charged and stay lit all night long. I would like to get more of these and put them all over my yard and feel that they are a good quality product. I also need to mention that I received these at a discount in exchange for an honest review.
This is my first rain shell, but my impressions are great. I am 6'1" and 200lbs. I have a slender build and the large fit perfectly. Slightly baggy so I can easily layer beneath it. I just got back from a week in Canada and had the pleasure of using the Precip jacket twice. I used it on the first morning of a canoe camping trip in Algonquin Park. It was about 50 degrees and a thick foggy mist settled over the lake for the first day. I used this and a long sleeve base layer and I was warm and dry. My second opportunity was at Niagara Falls. I wore it while doing some long exposure shots of the falls at night. Definitely kept the mist off of me and dry.
As a married man with a 2-year old, I highly value my time on the crapper. The simple joy of making a #2 allows me temporary respite from the incessant questions posed to me: "Yes that's right, cows sometimes ARE brown."; "No, pingpong balls do not grow into pingpong trees"; "No, the bathtub is not full of 'poop dog water'"; "Yes, I know the sink is broken, no I can't fix it, I know nothing about plumbing"; "Yes, I KNOW your mom is coming to visit and our house is a dump."; and the list does on.
I work on computer networks for a living. I was able to configure the camera's settings after two hours of effort. Once it was configured, it would not remain on the network. I tried several networks. Wireless and wired. Seems to reset itself randomly. Doesn't hold configuration. The packaging includes a paper card that points you to a website for setup instructions. The website's setup files and documentation refer to different camera models. If you're lucky enough to find and install the setup utility, good luck using it. I was using the Mac version. Documentation is severely lacking. This is one of the worst technology purchases I have made, going back 30 + years! I offer this criticism with appreciation of the effort that at least a handful of people put in to bring this camera to market. To those people - please, learn what went wrong with this one, and make the next one awesome! I'm returning my purchase for a refund.
I bought this book and another at the same time because they had tons of five star reviews and were cheaply priced. I have learned from this experience to read the one and two star reviews before buying. If those reviewers think this is great science fiction, they have obviously not read any great science fiction. Let me recommend Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury from the past greats, and Timothy Zahn, C.J. Cherryh, Anne McCaffrey from more recent writers.
I've been using this product for 2 years. Love it! But it does take practice applying it. I don't think this is a product to be put all over your face. It is just to fix small areas. I use it below my eye and it really tightens the area up so it looks smooth. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because it turns the area a little light. I put a moisturizer first and then some makeup before applying the Ageless. Like I said, takes practice.
