Zinus Spring Mattress Narrow Replacement

Hello dear friends! We are in the "anticipation" of the repair, and for now we sleep instead of a full-fledged bed on a statically unfolded sofa. While we are postponing the purchase of a full-fledged bed until the end of the repair, I see no reason to do this BEFORE. Recently, our backs have become very bad - we decided to buy a not very expensive and fancy mattress for this sofa, so that later it would not be a pity to put it along with the sofa and put it somewhere. Future bed will be different sizes)) Initially, having rummaged through the sites in search of the best inexpensive mattress, we stopped at Ikeevsky Khavslo and went to IKEA to test - lie on it. The consultant there immediately reoriented us, explaining the difference: in the chosen mattress, in comparison with this one, there is a "wave” effect: when the second person goes to bed, or when he just moves, the first is all given in waves. And in the Hatlevik mattress, this does not happen due to autonomous springs. To be honest, I did not delve deeply into the contents of the mattress, they said that 229 springs per square meter is good. The main thing is to lie comfortably. We bought a mattress marked "hard". In fact, it is not hard at all (I expected it to be like a board), but not soft ... Having chosen and tested the mattress, we took it to IKEA from the warehouse at the appropriate location. The mattress is tightly rolled up, weight 22 kg. Here is a breakdown of prices for a given mattress depending on its size. Our 140*200cm The package is fixed with handles for easy carrying: the handles are tightly Velcro, they hold very tightly and can then be used with other cargo if desired. In a roll, the mattress looks pretty flat. I really liked the thoughtfulness for opening: the place that is supposed to be cut with a knife is lined with cardboard so as not to hurt the mattress! Our mattress is hard, this is shown in the diagram in even stripes. If it were soft, the tick would be opposite the wavy lines. The packaging also contains a picture about opening the mattress: you can unfold it, you can sleep right away, but the mattress will reach the desired position in 72 hours. To be honest, we didn't have the patience to wait. Unfolding process: unfolded easily and fairly quickly. The mattress is gray on the bottom and sides, and light cream on the top. Here is the material of the mattress - and the color is visible here, and the stripes indicating the rigidity, and the texture. All seams are very neat, plump, and there is not even a thought that there might be something wrong. There are handles on the side of the mattress for easy turning if needed. Mattress height - 19 centimeters. Of course, where without a label - so as not to forget)))) We are happy with the mattress! There is no ripple effect, I sleep very well! The first couple of days it smelled a little, but then weathered. Moreover, the smell was not insanely strong, but light - if you smell it from the side of the butt. This, as I understand it, is absolutely normal. And yes, the guarantee for these mattresses is 25 years, and within 90 days you can simply return / change it if you don’t like it. We will look for a good large orthopedic for a new bed later. At the moment and according to our current requests, I think this is the best option. I RECOMMEND! See full review

Logitech Headset H390 Noise Cancelling

Good day my friends and readers of the review. In this review, I’ll talk about the Logitech H 390 headphones with a microphone. My wife is a teacher and now the classes are going remotely, she conducted them via Skype from a tablet. Very uncomfortable. So I decided to alleviate her fate by acquiring her a camera and headphones with a microphone. I bought both the headset and the camera in the online store "Imperial Techno. Ru" since now there is nowhere else. Convenient: ordered, delivered, paid. The cost of the headset is 2990 rubles. The headset is well packaged. Headphones Logitech H 390 wired type, connected via USB connector. With these headphones you will enjoy high quality sound. Soft ear pads wrap over the ear for maximum sound isolation. The quality of the material of the ear cushions is not super, I would like it to be made of leather. Because even on the new one it is clear that it will soon peel off. The outer part is high quality and beautiful. The wide headband is adjusted to the size of the head of a particular listener using a sliding system, which ensures comfortable use. Making calls is possible thanks to a highly sensitive microphone that transmits detailed sound. You can adjust the volume with this button on the headphone cord. The microphone moves, it can be lowered down for a conversation or raised and this turns it off. The Logitech H 390 headset has a dynamic range of 20-20000 Hz. This fact provides a powerful sound at high frequencies. Headphone sensitivity of 100dB, allows you to achieve greater volume when connected to any audio device. The length of the headset connection cord is 2.4 meters and the cable itself is protected from kinks, which will ensure long-term use. We really liked this Logitech H 390 headset and we recommend it for purchase. See full review

AmazonBasics Reusable Silicone Baking Cups

I'm probably not the only shopper who thinks Fix-Price is a lottery store. Here you can buy something more or less decent, as well as frankly useless or completely poor-quality thing. And despite the positioning of Fix-Price as a "best price" store, this statement can also be easily argued, since a number of goods a stone's throw from "FP" are sold cheaper. But, despite my earlier somewhat dismissive attitude towards "FP", lately (1.5 years), I managed, if not to love this network, then at least to respect it. I won’t list all my successful purchases at FP now, but the store helped me out more than once when I needed to buy consumables for a tea party at school or a picnic. Tablecloths, cups, plates are sold there of very good quality, the latter are made of thick cardboard. In addition, my daughter goes to choreography classes, the ensemble often performs, so sometimes you need decor elements for a costume or some kind of props. Fix-Price in this regard helps a lot, here you can find wonderful things at the lowest price. Well, now let's talk about kitchen attributes, or rather about baking tins. I really love high-quality dishes and accessories, so in my life I would not have bought anything from this series at Fix Price if it weren’t for the reviews. And they were extremely positive. The Kitchen cupcake and muffin tin set has a modest but bright package. There are 6 molds in total in a pack. They are made in China. Shelf-life Unlimited. Silicone molds are made. By the way, the colors of the molds can be different: orange, purple, light green, red, yellow. The molds on the sides are corrugated, which will invariably affect baking. I did not feel any strong or repulsive smell when removing from the packaging from the molds. But before using, I washed them with dishwashing detergent and treated with boiling water (for complacency). What I don’t really like about these molds is that their walls are quite soft and thin, you need to carefully transfer the mold filled with dough onto a baking sheet, otherwise, if you press your hands on the sides of the mold, the dough may simply splash out. I have not had such incidents, but theoretically it is possible. Despite the soft walls, the molds hold the baking shape well (sorry for the tautology). Your pastries will not turn out to be kurguz or slanted. The molds are suitable both for baking at a temperature of + 220C, and for cooling to a temperature of -40C. When baking, I usually fill the molds with dough by half or a little more, it will still rise in the process. Here is an example. In the summer I baked pancake donuts, I had the opportunity to compare silicone and metal molds. And if the finished donuts from silicone molds just flew out, then in metal ones they firmly stuck to the walls, and despite that, I greased them well with oil. Another advantage of silicone molds is that there is no need to lubricate the walls and bottom with oil. As you may have guessed, I have used Kitchen silicone molds many times and have been more than satisfied with the results. Pancake donuts with meat filling. Pancake donuts with cream. Cupcakes with chocolate filling. Cupcakes with apricot. After baking, the contents of the molds can be easily removed and are also easy to clean. Enough water and a sponge. The disadvantages can also be attributed to the fact that when baking, the bottom of the molds (more for light-colored molds) darkens, they lose their original new look. Otherwise, the forms are very good, suitable for cooking culinary masterpieces. Still, the Fix-Price goods store is not hopeless and from time to time, if you dig well, you can find worthy goods at a low price. See full review

Utopia Home Premium Wooden Hangers

Good day to all, good health to all. Our whole life consists of little things and accidents. Why am I? And besides, I somehow got into the wardrobe and found that I didn’t have enough hangers (shoulders) or some of them were all unusable: sometimes bent, sometimes small and uncomfortable. And after walking through the shops, I went to the fixed price list and saw what I needed. I will say that it is precisely these wooden hangers that I still have left do not know since when. Hanger, as I say "environmentally friendly" means wooden. The hook is strong steel and turns easily. There is a holder for trousers and skirts. Such a "little thing" as a clothes hanger allows you to put things in order not only in the wardrobe, but also in "my mood" - I hate clothes scattered on chairs and a mess in wardrobes. So, go to this store, maybe you will come across such a necessary trifle. Thank you for watching. See full review

Baby Shusher Babies Miracle Soother

I saw the device from a friend who is engaged in photography of newborns, she "married” it to me, and I decided to buy it as a gift for a friend. In general, I liked everything. I have known about white noise for a long time, and I myself am fond of applications with the sounds of a waterfall, rain, etc., it has a calming effect on me, which is why I chose such a gift. The sound at the highest setting seemed too loud, I would recommend using it halfway. Although if you turn it on in a shopping center, it will be optimal. I thought between this device and the device in the form of a plush toy, into which a tab with a sound source is inserted. I decided that the option in plastic is more optimal, since the friend is allergic, and the soft toy is an additional dust collector. Moreover, the device will be in the baby's crib. And the plastic can be wiped with an antibacterial wipe and there are no problems. The plastic does not have an unpleasant smell, it feels slightly dull to the touch, there is no feeling of cheapness. The production is American, the instruction is also only in English, there is no Russian dubbing, but everything is clear. Convenient lace, but you need to put it on yourself, it lies separately in the box. I bought at a discount from the photographer 15% + saved on delivery, since pickup from St. Petersburg is free, so it turned out cheaper than the face value (3100 rubles). So in general, the purchase is satisfied. See full review

cedar easywring microfiber bucket cleaning logo

Cedar EasyWring Microfiber Bucket Cleaning

I already wrote a review about my miracle mop Cinderella FM-V7 (EASY MOP). Mom, looking at me, also decided to make the cleaning process easier for herself and purchased a set of mop with a Spin and Mop bucket. And my review today is about him. The set consists of a bucket with a wringer compartment and a mop with a microfiber nozzle. The bucket of this model is one-piece, the wringer compartment is, as it were, "inserted" into it: The principle of operation is the same for all such devices: water is poured into the bucket to a certain level, then the mop is placed in the left half of the bucket (if you look at the photo) Rinsing occurs due to the rotation of the nozzle. To do this, press the mop handle from above several times. Then the mop must be wrung out. To do this, we place the nozzle in a centrifuge (in the photo it is on the right) and repeat the manipulations with pressure on the mop handle. The mop is ready to be cleaned. Repeat the rinsing and spinning process as needed. To carry the bucket, the manufacturer has provided a handle. That's just a bucket of water is quite heavy. Yes, and it is designed in such a way that in the process of carrying it always strives to outweigh it in one direction or the other. Now more about the mop. The handle of the mop is telescopic, it is convenient to adjust to any height. The nozzle is made of microfiber - an excellent material for wet cleaning. The kit includes a spare nozzle made of the same material (before writing a review, I did not find it, but it definitely is). The angle of the mop can be easily changed. Thanks to this, you can easily get into hard-to-reach places. For example, put the mop horizontally and mop the floor under the sofa or chest of drawers. The nozzle rotates beautifully. Due to this, it is convenient to wash the dust from the corners and next to the baseboard. In conclusion, I can say that the pluses of the set are much more than the minuses. The mop allows you to simplify the cleaning process, saves your hands and back. Mom is very satisfied with the purchase, which means that I can safely recommend her. See full review

kingston 240gb solid sa400s37 240g logo

Kingston 240GB Solid SA400S37 240G

I have been familiar with Kingston A400 SSDs for 2 months now. Two such drives were purchased from me at work - the first, with a capacity of 120 GB, replaced the dead HDD on a Lenovo G560 laptop, the second, with 240 GB, replaced the old and barely crawling HDD in an almost new PC (yes, they just don’t do anything for the sake of saving - even an old hard drive is stuffed into a new PC). I decided not to do two almost identical reviews on these drives, so I'll just add a little about the 120 GB drive here. Kingston A400 drives are sold in a simple blister. Complete set: packing, drive. The packaging itself does not provide any specific information about the drive, except for the size of the drive and the mention of compatibility with SATA II and USB 2.0 via an adapter. A little more information about the Kingston A400 can be found on the manufacturer's website. According to him, in addition to drives with a capacity of 120 and 240 GB, this line also contains drives of 480 GB, 960 GB and 1.92 TB. In addition, the drives of this model differ in operating speed (more on that later) and form factor - in addition to 2.5", there is also M.2. The interface for all options is SATA III, the memory type is 3D NAND. The case of Kingston A400 drives is made of painted metal. Still, holding metal hardware is more pleasant than plastic, from which cases are now made for many SSDs. At the same time, the weight of Kingston A400 drives is about 40 g, which is comparable to plastic drives. The capacity of both drives corresponds to those declared by the manufacturer: the Kingston A400 240 GB contains 240,057,409,536 bytes, the Kingston A400 120 GB contains 120,034,123,776 bytes. Some operating systems show 223.6 GiB and 111.8 GiB respectively (yes, GiB, not GB). As for the speed. The manufacturer on its website indicates that the 120 GB Kingston A400 processes compressible data at speeds up to 500 MB / s when reading and up to 320 MB / s when writing. At the same time, the Kingston A400 with a capacity of 240 reads compressible data at the same speed as the "younger" modification, and writes a little faster - 350 MB / s. A slightly higher speed in data processing speed for larger SSDs of the same line is the norm. But my tests showed slightly different results. In the compressible data test, the 120 GB drive showed the best results. Moreover, in working with small blocks, this difference is especially noticeable. In the test with incompressible data, the results turned out to be somewhat different. Large blocks are clearly processed faster, small ones differently. I also want to pay attention to the recording test of the Kingston A400 240 GB, made in HD Tune. The schedule turned out to be very unstable, with constant jumps. This behavior is unusual for a new SSD. The 120 GB graphics card is much smoother. However, I suspect that different batches of drives use different memory modules and controllers, so the results of speed tests can vary greatly. And if this is not a sign of marriage, then for domestic use such tricks in the Kingston A400 240 GB, it seems to me, do not matter much. As for real work. Of course, replacing old hard drives on both the laptop and the PC led to an increase in performance. The difference is especially noticeable on an almost brand new PC. For example, launching LibreOffice (a free analogue of Microsoft Office) instead of 15 seconds now takes a second and a half at most. And this is with a 240-gigabyte, which puzzled me in the tests. In general, there is an increase in productivity, in some cases quite tangible. Given the low cost of drives, there are no special complaints about them. For office work and a not too demanding home user, they will fit. See full review

SanDisk Ultra Flair 128GB Flash

The manufacturer claims very impressive characteristics, namely - 150 MB / s read speed, 50 MB / s write speed (as indicated in some sources) with a USB 3.0 connection, but will everything be so good in fact, how will it behave in real conditions. And so outwardly the carrier looks very stylish and neat, and not large, the steel case on the sides is enclosed in a tinted semi-transparent plastic, which has a bend that forms a comfortable handle. It's a pity there is no work indicator, the blue diode would look very much in line with such tinted plastic.

fiskars 91095935j bypass pruning shears logo

Fiskars 91095935J Bypass Pruning Shears

Fiskars secateurs are one of the most common in garden stores in Moscow, I bought mine at the OBI store. At that time, I didn’t know anything about the manufacturer, I just took the one that seemed more convenient. The pruner is not cheap, it is made of high quality, it has a latch. Designed for cutting young wood. It consists of a cutting blade and an emphasis. Now about practical use. For me, it opens wide, so the grip is uncomfortable, more suitable for a man's hand. Handles made of durable plastic-like material slip. The cut diameter declared by the manufacturer is 22 mm, my pruner does not take it, it copes with a branch of about 1 centimeter with effort. I don’t know if the spring inside serves as a shock absorber, but during operation, the handles hit hard and hit the hand painfully. The cutting blade began to develop serrations, which is surprising given that I used it very little. For the purity of the experiment, I tried to work with the Fiskars pruner and about the same Chinese secateurs with Aliexpress, which I also don’t really like. So, the Chinese work easier, the grip is more comfortable, the handles seem to be rubberized, the hand does not slip. Effortlessly cuts branches of a larger diameter than Fiskars. It seemed to me that the price-quality ratio does not match. The pruner copes with the task at a C grade. Only for pruning thin branches and roses, and for these purposes you can buy cheap Chinese.

Concrete Professional Industrial Strength TITGGI

Good day! In this review, I want to share information about the ownership and use of a set of drills for concrete Stayer Drills "MASTER". This set consists of five drills whose diameter is: 4.5, 6.8, 10 millimeters. The drills themselves are in a special box (container), which is very convenient when moving a set of drills, as well as during its storage. I bought this set in 2018 when I was doing repairs in the apartment. Upon use, I want to say that these drills are made of good metal (the conclusion was made by me since the drills do not bend and do not deform when used for their intended purpose), and the soldering itself does not fly out, provided that it accidentally bumped into the reinforcement located in the wall of the house . I drilled quite a few holes with these drills (I drilled holes for the euro plinth), so I can safely say that the set is of good quality. I hope that my review will be useful to someone and help with the choice of drills. To everyone who read my review to the end - THANK YOU !!! See full review
