Consumer Review
Bellavita bath-tub lift chair does the job!
This is a perfect product for those whose legs have become too weak to stand up after bathing is done. It works exactly as described (perfectly)and is easy to keep clean even when leaving in the tub between baths. The battery unit is easy to recharge and its enclosure is waterproof. I had previously considered buying a walkin tub ($10,000 – $17,000 installed) and am glad I bought this chair instead as it permits many seating heights whereas the walk-ins have a fixed height seat. All in all, a perfect solution for those with old and/or weak legs, hips, or backs. I would buy it again without hesitation.

The Plantronics CS55 wireless headset system combines the clarity of traditional corded technology with the mobility of wireless, so employees can move around the office to wherever business takes them—without interrupting or missing a call. Continuing our tradition as a technology leader, Plantronics presents CS55 as the first headset in the United States to implement 1.9GHz UPCS voice-dedicated wireless technology. With the included Plantronics HL10 handset lifter, remotely taking or ending a call is as simple as pressing a button. Includes the Plantronics HL10 handset lifter for remote call answer/end capability.
Great headset with outstanding voice quality.
This is a great headset designed with everything you need for such a device. Buttons both on the base and the headset are easily accessible and use. The voice quality is outstanding and people I spoke to on this wireless headset said the voice quality is similar to that of a wired headset. I do have one issue with the first unit I received from Amazon, it was not working properly. However, Amazon was quick to replace it with another unit which has been working perfectly for a couple of months now. I’ll come back to Amazon for my future buys.

The Lazy Lifter does the hard work for you, making it possible to safely hang drywall panels on your own.

this is dangerous
I am a customer home builder for the last 31 years. We rent a drywall lift couple times a year, but with business slow we are hanging our selves so I ordered this lift. It is not safe, my guys refuse to use it. The arms bend, the welds were broken in 2 areas when we opened the box, the mechanizm that is supposed to hold the drywall in place slips. We took it apart twice to see if we did something wrong, but it is a copy cat, looks the same but it is of very poor quality.
