The Lounge>What are some of your favorite product purchases?
DaFace 07:47 PM 05-23-2019
A thread to talk about some of the things we've bought and are really happy with. The end. Or the beginning.

Yeah, well I like my Ryobi 40V battery-powered mower. :-)

Obviously it's completely different, and I wouldn't necessarily call it a "favorite purchase," but not having to deal with gas and oil is a game changer for a small yard. It's also nice that the batteries are compatible with their other products (I have a trimmer as well).

Yes it is, but it has to be.

I bought some nice pots and pans about 10 years ago, have used them a lot and they are still in nice shape. The big ass stock pot is great for chili or lobsters, not that hard to clean either.

Be careful with attaching the power cord though, the little tiny usb-tiny (whatever it is called) jack on the body of the speaker can get messed up.

The biggest things to look for are:

4K/UHD compatibility (if you have a TV that supports it)
Dual-Band WiFi (if you have the ability to do 5GHz from your router, that can help your signal consistency a lot)
I was reading Wired on these today which said different ones did more.

The only time we actually use the dining room table for meals is if we have company. Had it for 18 years and it's as sturdy as the day we got it.
I have something like just a different design. It is great!

I hear you on the power chord (micro USB) and I had read that when doing my research. I'm very careful with that. I have two and pair them. Huge difference than just the one.

Below is the XPS on top of the Alienware.. the block in the back is just the power block for the Alienware... I didn't realize it would be so big honestly...



Otherwise, my Honda EU2200i Generator has been SOOO nice on my property.
I went from a Lenovo 15 to this XPS 13. I LOVE IT.

Everything about it is perfect.

I got the Roku 4k Ultra for 3 TVs. It's really handy in the bedroom since the remote has a built in headphone jack.

So much simpler, faster, etc. I am blown away by all the free channels it offers, too.

This is probably one of my best. $7 and it has dramatically changed the manner in which I can work at night. I don't know how the blue hell I ever lived without it.



This is another one that's worth not getting cheap knock offs. Makes things far easier in the tractor. But if you use GPS or other functions in the car, its the go to. Ram Mount is the top of the line.



This is another good one. If I had to listen to the radio in the tractor, I'd be killing fools.

I went to surface pro so I could get a USB 3.0 adapter for a desktop adapter.

When I had a garden


Added a timer on it. Very low maintenance. I still have it, but do not have a need for it.

I have one of those. Awesome for grading papers and doing school work while watching the game and other programs.

I'm a big fan of magnetic phone mounts in the car. I personally have the one that you jam into your CD player (because who uses those anymore), which makes it rock solid. The caveat is that you pretty much have to be someone who uses an opaque phone case for it to work, but if you do it's super handy to just be able to plop the phone in the general direction of the mount and have it stick. Super easy to grab it for a phone call too.

I'm thankful that I bought a ChiliPad a couple years ago. My bed is 67 degrees every night.
I've never slept so well.
