          I ordered this online so I didn't have the chance to touch the product first. I expected it to be of the softer, more flexible type of plastic (think rubbermaid) but that is not the case. It's rigid, fairly thin plastic so I would expect it's quite brittle.
          I'm a little disappointed because I thought it'd be great for hauling tools and gear for camping and rafting trips, but it's probably better suited for general household and office storage. For that purpose it works quite well.
          Pros: Good Size & Weight

          Tacky but fun, this cheap acrylic plastic bear proudly adorns our office shelf. We leave it on 24/7 without issue. Probably too bright for nightlight use.

          Macally adjustable automobile cup holder mount design to fit most wireless Phone, GPS and MP3 players. It keeps your phone in one simple, easy to reach place while you drive. Fits in most cup holders and expands to fit tightly. The rotatable grip expands to accommodate even the largest smart phones on the market. Adjust the neck to angle the viewing to your liking.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          It's a nice looking cup holder mount and it holds the phone well. However, it's just too short, by a long stretch, to really help out. Unless you've got a car with extremely high cupholders, this unit just won't cut it. I tried to give it away to a half dozen friends, and even then, it was too short to be useful in their variety of vehicles.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Stylish
          Cons: too short

          The KOHLER touchless toilet is the no-touch flush for your home. Just hold your hand over the tank sensor to activate the flush. No handle to touch means fewer germs to pick up or leave behind. This Cimarron toilet features innovative AquaPiston technology, a patented flush engine that delivers a fast, powerful, and plug-free flush. A 1.28-gallon flush provides significant water savings of up to 16,500 gallons per year, compared to a 3.5-gallon toilet, without sacrificing performance.

          Good, attractive contemporary look. Throws houseguests for a loop if they are not warned ahead of time that there is no handle to flush the toilet. I really like it, however.
          Be sure to check your depth before installing, as with all toilets.
          Solid flush. However, women and those with longer hair need to be careful. Swinging, loose hair can activate the flush sensor by accident from someone in a seated position, causing a bit of a start the first time it happens!
          Pros: Modern, High Quality

          Q-SEE's 960H surveillance system, the QC524-4K2-5, offers a recorded video image that is over 30% larger than D1 and over 500% larger than CIF resolution, providing a recording resolution that further closes the gap between the high definition resolution of expensive state-of-the-art systems and the conventional resolution of analog systems. The outstanding recording resolution isn't the only noteworthy feature of this security DVR. With an array of remote monitoring features, this DVR keeps you connected even when you're away. Monitor from a compatible smart phone or tablet, and check in on the system when you're at work or just on the go. This multi-tasking DVR can even send out email alerts when motion is detected or a camera loses video. Coupled with 960H/700 TVL cameras, monitoring your surroundings has never been easier or clearer. High quality image sensors and LED's allow each camera to provide color accurate images during the day and bright black and white images during the night.

          Quality DVR security camera system. Easy to get the basic setup done, with plenty of advanced options available for advanced users. I like the fact that it came with two different types of cameras.
          Installation was very straightforward -- using it to cover a workshop, garage and outdoor parking area. I rely upon it and trust it. It's had 100% uptime for the entire seven months we've had it installed. Night vision coverage is, as advertised, around 80 feet. No complaints, and I like the software compared to other units we've tried.
          Pros: Clear Instructions, Nice Design, Easy Installation

          Are these items hard wire or battery operated? Are they wireless (camera to monitor)?

          Answer: 
          Hardwired, and no, they are not wireless. There are two cables that run to each camera, one to deliver power, and one to transmit the signal.

          One answer was that cables could not run inside walls. Why is this? Certainly you don't want exposed wires if they can be hidden in walls.

          Answer: 
          It's up to the homeowner/business owner and local code regulations, I would imagine. Certainly, I would see no problem running AV and low voltage cable through walls, as long as it was through protected studs.
          For my installation I had a drop ceiling which aided the instal, but if I had to run it through walls I would have done so without hesitation. Quality wires.

          It would, probably, but only for patient, sporadic use. This tool is a real gas hog, though. My 20-gallon Husky compressor ran nearly constantly when using this impact wrench.
