  • omojefe ohovwore - HD Clear Vision Indoor TV Antenna-Free Over The Air Digital TV

    I have used this device for 5 months. It is a piece of crap. The manufacturer makes you feel you will receive over one hundred channels....that is a big lie. I do not see the difference in the one I had prior to its purchase. They are all not what they claim they are. Buyers beware!

  • T. Greenwood - Great lights. Brighter than expected. Thank you.

    Was excited to see if these lights worked good. When first opened the box, i was kind of surprised to see that they weren't that large and really light. I immediately thought the worst.

  • Fernando - just ok

    Bought it for body acne break-outs. Did a little bit in controlling it but I did not see much change on the blemishes that were already present. Probably works best as part of a regimen.
