          I have the cheaper model caulk gun and this one. Hands down this one is better in everyway other then cost. But it is well worth the few extra dollars. The grip is a lot more comfortable and the mechanical advantage is much better. it's easy to squeeze even with thick stiff cold caulks and adhesives. The control of the flow is much better too.

          Instead of having all the plugs for the christmas lights sitting in the mud, i got these and there are pretty nice. Not made of the highest quality materials, but made decent and for seasonal light they are good. There are 3 open outlets and the stake keeps the plugs from sitting on the ground and keeps most rain off of them too. The cords is a little stiff but if let it sit inside its a little more flexible. The 15 ft cord length is nice too.

          For the price I paid I think there are a decent value, I got them for around $40 on black friday.
          There are well made and look nice. They come filly assembled. You will need to do a little styling when you take them out of the box, they came pretty mashed up. All the lights work. The tree can be removed from the base.
          The bases are weighted but not enough, I am going to add some stone or maybe cement to mine so they are a little more wind resistant. I would have liked them to be a foot or so tall and i know there are trees available, but I didn't want to spend that much.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Rich Looking, High Quality of Material, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Functional, Well Made, Nice Design

          This is a nice shelf. It feel like it is well made and should hold anything that you put on it (within reason). I put this in a shower so there some place to put the shampoo, soap, and anything else. Glass in the shower might not be the best idea, but does work as long as you don't break it it should be fine. Plus the glass is tempered so it should break into little pieces and not shards.
          Installation was pretty simple, drilling into tile is a little less forgiving than drywall so make sure you are very accurate. Otherwise you may have a crooked shelf or have a challenge getting it sit right on the wall.
          It would be nice if there were a bar under it to hang a towel and if there were a bar Read More

          I would still recommend this product based on it's value and what I could expect it to be used for. For something that it going to perform better you are going to have to shell out some more. If you have a need for an inspection scope on a regular basis, then spend more and I am sure you will be be happier in the long run.
          Pros:
          -cost, this is pretty inexpensive for a scope camera
          -bright color, not to easy to loose
          -It performs ok for what it costs
          -Wifi connection is really useful, the display doesn't really need to be that close to the device
          -nice to be able to save and share pictures and video pretty easily

          -wand is pretty small so getting it it places should be pretty easy
          -wand is pretty flexible and can take a pretty tight bend, approximately a 2 inch radius
          Cons:
          -image quality not all the great, thought it would be better
          -the lights on the tip are not powerful enough, even at their brightest setting
          -close up focal distance isn't that good. Would be nice to be able to have a macro mode or be able to control the focus distance/range
          -battery life doesn't seem all that great, but I have only been using the batteries it came with and not sure of the quality of them.
          -wand would be a little stiffer
          -cell phone holder doesn't work take well with large phones (LG G2 in my case with a case on it), Seems like a boxy iPhone it would hold better
          -no full screen view only a portion of the screen
          -would be nice to be able to adjust image brightness
          Setup was ok, i did not read the instruction at first, till i got the to where is asked for a password, it's 12345678. The Android app is ok, it's a little quirky, I would prefer that it just take pictures and video and store them like the camera on the phone, but it doesn't and you have to do a little finagling to get them out of the app. The App stores them in a project and can store notes, audio, and reading from over devices in the same project and I am sure this would be useful for someone doing regular inspections, but in that case I would invest in a better camera.
