    Designed with Attention to Detail

    It's smart for a couple reasons. Of course, the concept is simple: trap the air between the glass and the room and the air becomes the insulator. But it's all in the implementation and that's where this product shines. It uses double-sided tape that isn't so sticky that it will pull of paint when removed. Have to get that right and they did. The real attention to detail is the film material. When installed, it better not look tacky. So they formulated the material to shrink just enough to tighten it up to pull out the hard and soft wrinkles, but not pull away from the tape! Don't worry if the tape and the film lie on perpendicular planes. The film won't pull off when it shrinks. It's resilient enough not to overcome the film-to-tape adhesion. Again: brilliant.It is also optically clear, not at all diffusive. That is another absolute must. I was simply amazed at how this product brings all this together into a cheap, effective solution to drafty old windows... 5/5 J.

    What if you have window shades?

    This is a great product, but what do you do if you have window shades or curtains that go across the window between the inside trim pieces? All the videos I have seen show the film being placed across the front of the entire window casement. You can do that, but then you can't adjust the window shades.I installed this product on 10 windows having shades, and after the first one, when I made all the mistakes, I was able to do them in 5-10 minutes each. Here's how (and how to avoid the mistakes).First - and this applies to any window - realize that when you first roll out the film to cut it, you are cutting to the width of the window (+2 inches). When you unfold the film after cutting, it unfolds to 5 feet, the maximum length of the window. After you install the film, you can trim off the leftover film at the bottom of the window.Start by cleaning the wood surface with alcohol.

    PB-13 14000mAh won't let you down

    Every year, our power needs grow. Tablets get bigger, phones get more needy. Portable power is pretty much a must for anyone travelling or for someone that works away from a power source all day.The good news is - there are hundreds (if not THOUSANDS) of choices for portable external battery chargers. The bad news is - they are not created equally and may not reasonably meet the needs you bought them for.When buying an external battery like the RAVPower 14000 mAh PB-13 (from now on, just PB-13), you need to consider four major things; how long it will last, how powerful is the output, what sort of quality of battery are you getting inside - and finally, how long will it take to recharge?Of course, once you're good in those departments, you can talk about features from there.The PB-13 comes as an attractive little box that still fits in your hand.

    BUYERS, BEWARE!!

    Since April of this year I’ve purchased three of these charging banks. One order in April and two orders in June. My April order came with different cables than what my two June orders came with. I liked my first device so much that I decided to buy another unit. My second order arrived and I noticed that the LED flash light didn’t work, but I thought I would first have to fully charge the unit before the flash light would work. I never got to recharge it as I gave it as a gift to a fried that visited from out of town.I ordered yet another unit for myself and this too arrived with the different USB cables than what the first unit arrived with in April. Again the flash light didn’t work and after having charged it to 100% it still doesn’t work.This is very frustrating!

I setup a return with amazon and left 2/5 review in the customer feedback. A few days later I got an email from Sentey who offered to replace my faulty mousepad with any other mousepad in their inventory, regardless of the price. I made my selection and within 2 days I had a brand new mousepad sent to my house. This kind of behavior is uncommon in today's customer care, so I decided to let would be buyers know about Sentey's "above and beyond" style of support. The replacement I asked for was was the same as the one I originally bought, and it is comparable to the 25 dollar mousepad I bought before it. The mousepad is a 5/5, customer service is 5/5 and the only reason I deducted a star for the overall grading is because I did not get this great mousepad the first time around. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 12, 2014

    I rarely review products I purchase on Amazon, mainly because I usually feel like the existing reviews do a perfectly good job of capturing my impressions already. But that is not so for this mousepad.I purchased this because I was tired of using my old SteelSeries pad; it had curled up on every edge and was significantly impeding movement of my mouse. I wanted to get a "hard" mousepad, i.e., one that couldn't roll up on the edges. The Kairos PRO is exactly that kind of pad. The top surface is a treated sheet of PVC plastic, aka not fabric. This piece of plastic keeps the mousepad rigid at all times, which is exactly what I want. To be fair, it's not 100% rigid, as you certainly can hold it between your hands and flex it, but the PVC is plenty firm enough to prevent curling of any sort. It is also extremely smooth and allows you to really move your mouse effortlessly.

    Excellent Mouse pad

    I generally use my system for playing first person shooter/ RPG and also for Computer Aided Designing, etc. The mouse I use is a 2400 DPI mouse. I have been using this pad for a couple of days now. I have had a good experience with this mouse pad so far.The pros of this product are:1. The surface quality is pretty good. My 2400DPI mouse moves smoothly on it without any bumps/discontinuities.2. The pad grips my polished wooden table pretty firm and I have not encountered any slippage so far.3. The pad area is pretty big which allows easy maneuverability. This is really important if you are aiming your cross-hair in an open field scenario in FPS.4. The pad is odorless which is really good because my last pad had a burnt rubber smell which was really hard to get rid of.5.

    Works well when fixed...

    I too had problems with this door. It didn't always open when it was suppose to. After disassembling the door and figuring out how it was suppose to work, I realized that the switch (a little diode-like thing on the inside of the housing) is suppose to close, completing the circuit, when the door is locked. The switch is activated by a magnet in the locking flap. If the diode switch doesn't close, which happens about 50% of the time, the circuit does not close. If it does not close, it does not reset to accept another signal from your pet when it is ready to come back in or go back out.This is also the cause of the door getting stuck either partially open or closed. To fix this, I rewired the whole thing and created contacts that actually touch (removed the faulty diode switch). I also added a little weight to the door by placing some washers into the hollow flap and added a stronger magnet at the base of the door housing to quickly bring it into the correct... 4/5 BarbG112 "Everything that can be counted does...

    Excellent Door - Good Security

    First, let me explain why some people love this and others have had problems. There is an older model and a new, improved model. They look almost identical but there are two easy to spot differences: the old one has a clear flap and a knob for "range" while the new model has a frosted flap and a flush dial for "sensitivity." I ordered and installed the new model in October in one home and it works flawlessly as further described below. In February I ordered another for our other home but received the older model. After installation it jammed several times in the first couple of days. The problem with the older model is that the flap takes too long to settle after the dog passes through it and it locks too quickly. If the locking motion is activated before the flap stops flapping it is likely to jam. The new improved model has more and stronger magnets to settle the flap quickly and there is a longer (8 second) delay before it locks so it has never jammed on us.
