Kindle Fire 2 Pack Christmas Special $99.98

GREAT VALUE (Christmas Deal): Ordering several packs of these!! Keep in mind, this is for the 16GB version of these tablets not the 8GB version that is being offered for $39.99/each right now.. 16GB will give you a lot more on board memory (Not all apps can be moved to a Micro SD Card).. These tablets are great! I have owned the 8GB for a while now (Review below)

Short Review: Basically, if you are looking for a GREAT BUDGET TABLET grab these and don’t look elsewhere! Other budget tablets on Amazon don’t even come close to the budget fire tablet PLUS this tablet is backed by Amazon Customer Service.. Yeah, they only have a 90 day warranty BUT I was able to get a replacement for one that failed after 6 months WELL PAST the 90 day warranty, no questions asked! I now own about 7 of these (Given mostly as gifts) and all 6 of the orginals and the one replacement are still GOING STRONG! with hundreds of hours of use!

I have owned every Kindle Fire that has been released, or at least a version of everyone.. My favorite has always been the HDX but I wanted to try this! Please know, this isn’t no HDX.. It isn’t even a Fire HD 6.. BUT for under $50 this is an amazing tablet! Much better than most Chinese tablets being sold here on Amazon (Please know, a lot of those are great tablets, just not this good)

Pros
1.) Screen – Screen is great, much higher quality than most tablets in this range.. I can tell it is much lower resolution than other Kindle Fires I have owned BUT the screen is BRIGHT and VIBRANT!! The screen is CLEAR!! And touch support WORKS GREAT!!

2.) Sound – Sound with the built in speaker is lacking but pair this with bluetooth speakers OR headphones and you are good to go!! The built in speaker is GREAT for a mono speaker but for movies you probably want more

3.) Performance – This plays most games very well.. Where it shines though, and what I believe Amazon designed it for, is streaming!! If you use Spotify, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu and services like that you will LOVE this tablet.. It streams videos and music very well!! Videos look fairly good on it and music, with headphones, sounds wonderful!! (Movies can even be downloaded from Amazon to the Micro SD Card)

4.) GREAT for Amazon Services – I personally use most of my Prime services such as Prime Music, Instant Video, Newstand and more… Like past fires, thse work GREAT with those services.. Everything is integrated into the OS..

5.) NEW OS – OK so FIRE OS has always been hit and miss with people.. I love it but I know lots who hate it!! They have made the OS much more similar to a regular Android tablet.. I feel this will help win over a few of the people who hated fire OS

6.) TAKES MICRO SD CARD!!! – MOVIES from Amazon Instant Video CAN BE DOWNLOADED to the SD card!! GREAT!! I fill this with movies before EVERY TRIP!

Ok so is this tablet worth the money?? YES!! If you like movies and want to download tons of them!! Just keep in mind this tablet is a BIG step down from the HDX (HDX runs out of memory quickly though) BUT AS a budget tablet this tablet is WELL WORTH the money!! This is the best tablet $50 can buy!!! THEY MAKE GREAT GIFTS!!

I would recommend this tablet to anyone who doesn’t own a tablet, anyone who wants a second tablet, or anyone wanting tablets for kids or gifts!!

Tips
1.) Want more apps than the Amazon App Store offers: Google APKPURE from the silk browser and install it!! It will give you access to almost 99% of the apps in google play! Just enable the setting that allows you to download apps from unknown locations and you are good to go!

Luxe Tempo 2 Person 4 Season Tents for Camping & Backpacking

Short Review:  Excellent TENT!!  I just got back from a weekend camping trip (Very cold camping trip due to the burn ban in east Tennessee) and I must say, this tent performed wonderfully well and the quality it outstanding!! This tent is built just as well as my $250 tent from REI and has the features to match!  Super easy to setup and packs back down in a jiffy! 

Pros
1.) Easy to Assemble – Instructions are sewn into the bag so you can’t lose them, but the tent is a simple two pole design!  I had it up in about 5 minutes
2.) High Quality Materials – Aluminum Poles, fully taped ripstop fabric, AMAZING Zippers, and overall just a very well made tent
3.) Waterproof – Fully taped seams and a full sized rainfly help keep you dry! It did come a very short shower while I was out and nothing got into the tent.. We are in a drought (At the time of this review) so we haven’t had significant rain in a while but I have no doubt that this tent wouldn’t keep me dry! 
4.) Footprint is available for this tent and it has the places to attach the footprint!  This adds warmth and protection to the bottom of the tent

5.) Aluminum Poles – I never buy tents that have fiberglass poles anymore.. Aluminum all the way
6.) Easy to repack
7.) Perfect Size – Plenty of room for 2 (Store gear in the vestibule) or TONS of room for 1 with gear stored inside.  For solo backpacking I ALWAYS use a two person tent when I am not backpacking with my hammock.. I love the extra space
8.) Weighs under 5 pounds if you leave the bag and extras at home!  Packed weight is only 5.5 pounds so not bad their either
9.) Excellent Value –  This tent is made just as well as my $250 REI tent..  The value of this tent is great! Its hard to find an aluminum pole, taped seams, high quality tent like this for under $200 anywhere!  This tent is an AWESOME Value
10.) Vestibule Area for storing gear
11.) TWO DOORS – this is a must when you have two people!! No climbing over your tent partner when nature calls!  This tent offers two doors!
12.) Bright Color is easy to see in your campsite after dark
13.) Great Ventilation – This is important when it comes to tents..  If not, condensation KILLS!! Especially on cold nights.. This tent offers wonderful ventilation!

Cons
1.) Footprint must be purchased separately but this is common for most tents

Overall:  I am very impressed with this tent and own SEVERAL name brand tents.. This one is made just as well as all of them!! Will it hold up as well?  I have no idea, only time will tell BUT from the looks of the tent, the build quality is outstanding and this tent will last for a very long time!!  I highly recommend this tent to ANYONE!!
