Great fan. Very thin so it fits in small spaces. Comes with a remote control. My only complaint is that it is a little loud when it rotates, but if you don't use the rotation function, you'll still feel coolness

I got this for my brother and his wife who have an "L" shaped house, so they could talk to each other from opposite ends, or make their point when close up. Haha. The clarity was pretty good, as was the loudness. The volume is a slide control, and the on/off voice/music switches are like a click pen, which weren't my favorite, I would have preferred a switch. This worked perfectly for what I needed, lightweight, easy to use, good volume control. I read a bunch of reviews of all different kinds of megaphones and was pleasantly surprised with this one.

Overstock's easy to use web site, and fast delivery made for a very plesent transaction. Minor freight damage, and some missing parts (air door operating arm). Only two fan settings, loud and louder. Unit not recomended for the bed room. Remote control is very handy, and unit cools and heats very quickly. All in all, a good product for a good price.

I ordered this fountain for our backyard entry area. It arrived very quickly and was packaged very nicely - no dings or broken parts. It was easy to set-up and install and worked great from the first get-go. It makes a nice splashing noise so that you notice it, but it's not overwhelming or too loud. I wanted to be able to hear the water at least a little! The light at night is very pretty, but it burns constantly and there is no way to turn it off without also turning off the water pump. It would have been nice to be able to control that but it's not a deal breaker. Very pretty and substantial fountain!

I am very impressed with the quality and construction. It takes about an hour to put together but beware as others have said about the greasy hardware. The unit is mostly real wood with some MDF. The top mantle piece is solid wood and is finished very nicely. The actual fireplace is very real looking and has many options - brighness, backlight and varying flame intensity - all controlled by a remote. The fan for heat is moderately loud but you can turn it off for a whisper quiet fire. Overall a great product.

This fan is quite large, works well and not too loud. The blades are painted a silder color which goes well with the base. I bought this for my living room and use it as my main light. Because of it's size its probably best for high ceiling and large rooms. I have 10 ft ceilings and its perfect. Didn't have too much trouble installing it, instructions were good and had clear pictures. Just make sure you follow instructions exactly, as the remote control option is a bit complicated. I was about to install it on my own- in stages, but am sure it would have been A LOT easier if I had a second set of hands to help.

I have always wanted a fireplace and this fireplace came quick and it has such realistic flames. I am really enjoying it. A friend assembled it alone within 1 hour. All the parts came with the correct amount of screws, washers, etc. All of the holes in the wood fit perfectly. It is a beautiful fireplace. The remote control works with a flat disc battery, the only drawback is the remote is very tiny and flat, I see myself losing it. The heater is not as loud as I expected and it warmed the room quick.

GOT THIS FOR MY HUSBAND WORKSHOP. JUST LOVE IT AND LOVE THE CONTROLS ON THE SIDE AND ONLY FAN I FOUND THAT HAD THAT. THE QUALITY IS THE BEST AND WILL ORDER MORE LATER ON. HE HUNG ON THE WALL ALSO AND HAS A LITTLE REMOTE HE FOUND TO USE FOR OUTSIDE ITEMS OR GARAGE ITEMS TO TURN THEM OFF AND ON BUT TO TURN THE SPEEDS YOU WILL HAVE TO MANUALLY DO THAT. YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS PURCHASE AND I CAN SURE SEE WHERE IT COULD HELP COOL A ROOM ALSO. THE NOISE IS NOT ALL THAT LOUD FOR SLEEPING I DO NOT THINK. LOVE THIS FAN AND IT MOVES THE AIR!

So this is a gift and I cant say much on the function as far as if it is a loud whistle etc. But from a gift giver's stand point I feel like this was a well spent ***. I searched for a while looking for something to fit a tough bill. This was for an elderly woman so I wanted something that had a control to open the spout lid without potential to burn oneself on scalding hot water. This has a button and trigger to open and close the spout lid without even getting near the spout. This is a nice size and weight. Color is true to the picture. Mine came in with some minor swirl marks on the green but nothing that was warranting a return.

This fan is just ok. It works well but I'm not happy with the oscillating feature as it makes a loud clicking sound as it starts the return motion with each change of direction. I don't know if I assembled the base improperly (seems to me it could have come already assembled to keep me from possibly doing it wrong), but the clicking noise is so annoying, I won't use that feature. It provides good air in my bedroom but it's definitely not as quiet as some reviewers have suggested (though perhaps my expectations are too high). The thing I like the most about it is the remote control and the auto turn-off timer feature.

This is a terrific hood -- like the other reviewer said, it could pick up a small dog (but is a bit loud at the highest setting). Very sharp looking in our kitchen, especially coupled w/ a stainless steel subway tiled backsplash. A couple of minor nits regarding DIY installation -- we ended up putting in longer screws than were provided. The mfgr. recommends adding pieces of wood under the cabinet as well -- for a higher-end hood, would have appreciated having it good to go without modifications. The controls are on the underside of the hood, keeping the exterior appearance sleek, but it takes a bit of groping to find them at first. Overall, very happy with this product. (Would have enthusiastically given 5 stars, but for the install.)

I love everything about this tea kettle. It has a great jazzy green color, it boils water quickly (that is it has great heat transfer - can boil a cup in less than a minute), the whistle is nice and loud -- we can hear it clear in our bedroom on the other side of the house), the lid and opening are a nice size allowing me to wipe it out and dry it daily (something I always have done since our water is very hard), the handle stays perfectly cool, and the control for opening the pour spout is very nicely placed (perfect ergonomics!) -- it operates easily and is not in a place where you might burn your knuckles (as you will with some other brands of kettles). In short, I LOVE IT!!!

I bought this piece as a temporary media cabinet. The price was reasonable; when I shopped around they were around $$$. It's got a lot of room & a drawer to keep controllers, etc. in. My main complaint is that the backing only has 1 hole to put cords through. I have our Direct TV, PS3, Wii, & (in 3 days a reciever for our surround sound) in it. The PS3 gets hot very fast & makes a loud noise (fan) so I have to keep the door open when we run the PS3. Since this is only a temporary piece until we custom build our cabinet in the nook area, I can deal with it. But, for those that have small kids it may be an issue to leave the door open so your electonical equipment doesn't overheat. Another solution would be to not install the back wall (which is cardboard). Overall, it looks really nice & we've recieved a lot of compliments on it.

This hood looks much better than it performs. Visually it's very nice and the fit and finish of the stainless steel is good. The product was well packaged, although the control panel had come loose and was wedged to the side of the openings for the buttons when I unpacked it. I was able to open up the control panel area by removing a few screws (which were loose) in about 5 minutes. However, in the process it became clear just how cheaply made and assembled the interior components are. Clearly all the fit and finish has gone into the exterior and corners have been cut fairly extensively on the actual blower assembly and controls. There is no way that this vent actually does 860 cfm. The venting is only 6", and even with rigid vent it's not moving 14 cubic feet per second by a long shot. If you're cooking anything that is generating a fair amount of smoke, such as blackening fish or searing a steak this vent will not be able to handle the output. At full speed the vent is adequate for general cooking tasks, but is fairly loud at that setting. The lights on this are next to useless. They are 35w and really do nothing other than adding some very dim accent lighting. They are not dimmable as the product information states they are, but that does not matter given how dim they are to begin with. All in all I feel like I got a good looking vent that is great until you actually turn it on.

As others have mentioned the fan blades are wood painted silver and the light is not as bright due to only two 40W bulbs. Since I installed this in my master bedroom, I didn't need something very bright since my nightstand lamps compensate when required. There was actually an issue after installling the fan, with a loud clanging noise of each fan blad hitting something in the inside of the unit. Overstock was great with getting us a replacement unit in about a week and this one works great. Installation can be a bit frustrating, the unit related to the remote control was a bit difficult fitting into the mounting unit and each fan blade needs to be screwed into the interior of the unit - flashlight was useful here. My other two ceiling fans had snap on blades and having to screw the blades in for this unit made me thankful there were only 3 blades instead of 5. The sleek design really fits perfectly with my contemporary bedroom and the quiet operation is perfect to leave it on while sleeping. Remote control allows me to adjust the fan settings and turn on and off the light from bed. What more can I ask for? Maybe just a little bit brighter light...

I've bought the Cavaliere-Euro 30-inch Wall-mount Range Hood around a month ago. At the first sight I was a little surprised because it didn't resemble the online pictures I've seen so far. The good news was that it looked slightly better, having an LCD display and touch buttons to interact with the device. It also came with a remote control that allows me to operate the hood from anywhere within the room. I installed the hood myself and it took me a little while since it doesn't have very clear mounting instructions. However with a little bit of patience, it can be done. Another thing that bothered me was that the connection to the vent is not properly sealed and I had to use silver tape to properly seal it. If this is done prior to mounting the hood, it doesn't present too big of a problem. After the hood was mounted, I was a bit concerned about its power since it didn't seem too powerful, but after cooking I have noticed that the cooking smell didn't spread throughout the house which was the very reason for which I bought the hood in the first place. The noise is a little bit loud on the fastest speed setting, but I can deal with it while cooking. It didn't seem any louder than any other hoods that I've seen on the market having less power and higher prices. All in all I like the hood design, power and pricing which determine me to recommend this hood to anyone not interested in spending a lot of money in order to get a powerful hood.

This hood didn't paid my expectations, thought my wife is somewhat satisfied. If not high cost of replacement I would go take my chances again and replace it. Major problem is that hood IS NOT SYMMETRICAL and this fact is not reflected in description. I discovered it only when I got it, but made a mistake and decided to install instead of simply returning it. Motor and turbine is on the LEFT side. Right side has pretty much no suction. So if your range has biggest burner on the right you are out of luck. Also, I've expected that rated at 460 CFM suction would be much better. Hood is somewhat quieter than other I have seen. That said, it makes pretty loud sound when turning it on and reaches its maximum level on the second speed, then level stays pretty much the same. Controls are not very intuitive and do not glow in the dark, making them difficult to find. I like delay feature, but rest of them are pretty much gimmick. I was unable to make Heat Sentry to kick in. Light is great. Filters are easy to remove for cleaning. Surface quality is OK. Installer told me that it was easy to install. Overall hood does its work; probably my expectations were too high. I do not know why one should pay multiple hundreds of dollars to get better performance. It is not rocket science to make them, so I expected way better results. May be it is just me, but I will hesitate to recommend it to friends.

1. SIZE: This bed should be promoted as a California King, not a king. Cal King bedding will fit perfectly, and I was pleased to get this size bed. The height is same as a real bed. 2. PUMP is as loud as a vacuum cleaner, and has an underlying high pitched screech. Sounds like it won't last long. 3. COMFORT: If it would stay inflated, it would be very comfortable. The materials seem durable. 4. INSTRUCTIONS: Instructions are minimal and not entirely clear. The "Inflate" and "Close" positions appear to be the same spot. The pump control and the manual deflate valve are at opposite ends of the unit, and the latter is not shown in the illustrations. 5. THE HOLE: The one I received has an open cylindrical depression 2-1/4" in diameter, 3" deep in the vinyl wall to the left of the pump control. It is not shown in the instructions and does not appear in the on-line photos. Its purpose is a mystery. 6. NOISE: When you get up, the air displaced by your weight returns to its original space, and the vinyl walls creak with the adjustment. MY EXPERIENCE: This bed was purchased for temporary use during a remodeling project. I inflated and deflated it once before intlating it for use. The first two nights it lost considerable firmness, and had to be pumped up morning and evening. I was considering returning it, but the third night it held up much better. Possibly the vinyl needed to stretch, like a new pair of shoes. After a few good nights, it has started to collapse again, worse than before. I awoke in a pit, and am done with this bed. My cheap old non-raised twin air bed is more comfortable and reliable. The Airtek king was a waste of money.
