HOKENA LED Road Flares Car Emergency Kit – Roadside Safety Beacon Warning Disc Lights for Vehicles Truck Boat – 3 Pack with Seatbelt Cutter

Short Review: I have never been a fan of regular flares.. they are messy (leave black marks), they can be dangerous, and they aren’t reusable! I saw these and had to give them a try! Yes, some improvements can be made (I’ll mention those below) but overall they are a solid design and a design that has multiple uses! Not just as a flare!

My planned uses include emergency kit in the car BUT I also plan to carry one while hiking, take them camping, and so on! These things are great and will be great for all activities!!

Pros
1.) Battery Powered – They operate on regular batteries so they are easy to change (includes the took to change) but this is also one of the improvements I can suggest.. Ever seen what happens to those batteries in emergency kits that are never used? They corrode! I would suggest maybe future versions use some sort of Lithium Battery that has a longer shelf life and less chance to corrode. But other than that, battery life rocks and this does include the battery! I would just suggest checking them from time to time and maybe running the flare for five or 10 mins to prevent the batteries from potential corrosion.

2.) Wonderful Quality

3.) Not heavy at all, they actually weigh less than real flares.. it’s going to make these great for camping! Or Hiking

4.) Get lost in the Smokies? Well hopefully not but if I do I will have one of these in my pack and one in each pack of folks with me!

5.) Carry case is very nice and will provide great protection in my vehicle

6.) Emergency hammer is a nice plus, howerver, mine didn’t come with any mounting hardware other than a mount.. this is one of my other suggestions for this product.. toss in a few screws to help mount the hammer..

7.) Value – I don’t know what I was expecting for the price, but not anything of this quality! I can actually see the seller getting more for this product.. these are nice

8.) Very bright! LEDs

9.) Each flare includes a hook and magnet so you can hang

10.) Mode includes a memory.. they will power on in the last mode you used. Great when using this as a tent light or something

11.) Includes flashlight mode so you can toss that crappy flashlight in your trunk

12.) Reusable and Environmentally friendly

13.) Rubber outter protection which is needed for any emergency or outdoor use

Feedback (Improvements):

1.) Battery – I suggest maybe using some sort of Lithium battery in future models.. not button cell but like a small CR123 battery or something

2.) Mounting hardware for the hammer

Asside from that, these seem perfect so far! A great idea very well done

Video Review Here

UPDATED REVIEW:  I wanted to update this review now that I have a video review for this product!! This monitor is STILL AMAZING!!  I highly recommend it.. Original review below with new video

Short Review (Summary): Excellent Monitor, 0 dead pixels, and very easy setup!! Looks great! NICE LARGE SCREEN! And works wonderfully well! I will be using this more over the next few days/weeks and will update this review while I do! Pictures should be coming soon!

My Use: I will be using this is my Microsoft Surface Tablet.. It works well and all I had to do is buy a cable that would fit my surface. I am NOT USING this with the surface dock, just a DVI cable

Pros:
1.) Full HD – 1080P is full HD.. Yeah, their are higher res screens on the market, but be prepaired to pay more for those! 1080 is plenty if you are on a budget but want a crystal clear picture!

2.) Bright and Vibrant!

3.) Easy Setup – Like most new monitors or TVs, really all you have to do is screw on the base. Very simple! Everything else is done automatically (Like adjusting the picture) but if you are like me, you can always fine tune the picture. I do that because I love bright.

4.) Uses DVI or VGA – I do wish it has HDMI but it doesn’t.. That is my only con (See Cons)

5.) Quality is GREAT.. Don’t expect Apple quality but this is much better than the last AOC Monitor or other basic Big Box store monitors.. I have NEVER had one of those without a dead pixel (I might just have bad luck) but this Suvom DOES NOT have any dead pixels.. Build quality also seems nice, doesn’t feel cheap! As long as it last for a 4 or 5 years, I will be VERY HAPPY!!

6.) MAC AND WINDOWS – Works with both mac and Windows! No issues

7.) Works with Raspberry Pie – This also works with my raspberry pie!!! Great monitor for that if you are into those!

Cons
1.) No HDMI Ports

2.) No speakers but not a huge issue

Overall: This is better than most budget monitors on the market!! I am very happy with mine and it works very well for my needs.. I will be using it and keeping an eye on quality, but for the price i HIGHLY recommend this

NEXGADGET Video Projector, GP80 Series 1800 Lumens LCD Mini Projector, Multimedia Home Theater Video Projector Support 1080P HDMI USB SD Card VGA AV for Home Cinema Theater Video Games Movie Night

Short Review: Excellent Video Projector, full of features and offers a very bright bulb!! Great for on the road presentations and just winding down in the hotel playing games at night!! Can even be used at home!

Pros
1.) Bright Bulb – Bulb brightness, for me, makes the picture look MUCH BETTER than other cheap projectors!!

2.) Very CLEAR and SHARP on Videos!

3.) VERY CLEAR AND SHARP on power point presentations

4.) Built in speaker is fine (If you plan on showing videos to larger groups, you might want a larger speaker to plug into this)

5.) Easy to navigate menus

6.) Great Picture Size Range From about 35 inches to over 135 inches.. I found the BEST RANGE to be in the 75 – 85 inch range if you want the BEST picture!! But it does go much larger and can go much smaller

7.) Plenty of hookups!!

8.) Doesn’t get very hot like a lot of other projectors do!

Uses
1.) Do you travel and have to show presentations? I do and a lot of times I cant expect my venue to have a projector.. I really hate carrying super large projectors with me.. This is NICE AND PORTABLE!!

2.) Do you travel and hate how hotels wont allow you to plug things into their TVs (Some allow this and some don’t).. Well just ignore their tv and plug your game system into this!

3.) Just want an inexpensive home entertainment system? This is GREAT FOR THAT!

Overall: Great projector! I highly recommend this, it works very well!

Hisense 65" Class 4K Smart TV – 65CU6200

Order the TV HERE


Short Review: I purchased this on a Black Friday special from Sams Club and wanted to say IT IS AN AMAZING TV for the price.. The picture is very bright and vibrant! The sound quality is EXCELLENT for a flat screen TV (But I still recommend soundbars).. It is FULLY LOADED with features and has already received a few updates from Hisense meaning this isn’t a “Rush to the Market, Cheapo Black Friday TV with no support).

Question: Even though you purchased this on Black Friday, would you pay full price for it? The answer is YES.. This isn’t your typical Black Friday TV (I know, I have purchased a lot of Black Friday TVS). This is a fully loaded, budget TV

TIPS
1.) Read your manual, not all HDMI ports on this TV support 4K.. Only the two on the back do

Pros
1.) HDR Support – I have confirmed with several people at Hisense that this TV DOES SUPPORT HDR.. It will come in an update very soon..

2.) 4K WORKS very well on this TV

3.) Decent sound for a flat screen.. I still suggest a soundbar or audio system BUT sound is GREAT

4.) Supports 4K on Amazon Fire TV, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Roku, and should support it on all 4K devices.. Not all TVs will support 4K on these devices due to copy protection, but this one does!

5.) Easy Setup

6.) Great Customer Service – Just look at their facebook.. Hisense is VERY responsive to support request!

7.) 4 YEAR Warranty – I mean, who else offers this for free? Buy it with a Discover card, or any other card with warranty protection and get 5 years total for free!!!

8.) 4 HDMI Ports (Remember, only two support 4K thought, the two on the back)

9.) Optical Audio Out – Great for higher end soundbars and sound systems

10.) Upscale GREAT

11.) LOVE THE LARGE SCREEN SIZE!!

12.) Easy to mount on the wall..

13.) VERY THIN TV

14.) Thin edges!!

15.) Full SMART TV – Includes Netflix, Amazon, Vudu apps PLUS you can download other apps

16.) Frequent Updates – This is VERY important – I have purchased TVS before that NEVER get updates and apps quickly become outdated.. Not with this TV.. It updates VERY frequently!!

17.) Wonderful Price – I got mine for $600 but I would have paid full price after getting it! The TV IS WONDERFUL

18.) Excellent Picture Quality

19.) Great remote! Easy to use and very responsive!

20.) Dark and even blacks

21.) Games look AMAZING on this with 0 input lag!!

Cons
1.) No HDR out of the box.. It will come in an update though

2.) No Hulu – However, according to Hisense they are working on this!

3.) Not all HDMI ports support 4K but from my research, this seems normal for TVs unless you spend several thousand dollars

Overall: AWESOME TV!! Simply PUT!
