Customer Review:
“It can be a bit daunting to have to install you own security system. Making sure you do it correctly is important so that it protects your house. I think SimpliSafe got the memo…. Maybe 15 or 20 minutes ? It was set up, working, and now I am safe and secure.
I chose SimpliSafe because it was the least expensive option to have professional monitoring versus some other DIY options out there. I looked at ADT but it had long term contracts and Vivint which was much more expensive per month. Now, I’m set up and have monitoring so now my house is protected (without breaking the bank).”

“I’m lazy. I bought these cups because I was fed up of hand-washing my 4 cup set of glasses every time I used them. So I bought a load of unbreakable acrylic cups that I could just put in the dishwasher and run it when I was ready.
Pros.
The cups are sturdy. No flex, they wash well in the dishwasher (top shelf) and they have a pattern to them so they are easier to grip when wet.
They stack, so they don’t take up a ton of room in the cupboard.
They are pleasantly colored.
They are USA made.
No chemical smell, no staining (with constant use for iced-tea)
They are light.
Cons.
I can’t think of any, not even a small one.”

However, this little kit has been so handy and performed so well it’s become my go-to for all but the largest projects. No problems to date with the durability of the tools or case–just convenience, variety, and reliability in a discrete, easily hidden package. ;)”

“Cleaning power: This thing sucks… It’s suction is much stronger than my Roombas have had. It picks up so much dust and pet hair. We do a full vacuum every other week with my Dyson, so I think of the robot vacuum as a supplemental vacuum. I was shocked at how much was in the dustbin after it’s inaugural cleaning! The picture attached to this is from that cleaning. It also gets a ton of dust in the little dust filter.”
