In a nutshell:

Wow! talk about worth the price! For less than $100 bucks you get a full luggage and a carry on that are stylish, have four wheels which makes it easy to push around, has a nice little zipper compartment and a latch to keep your stuff in place. I like the material, it is rugged enough to last awhile. Totally worth it! Going to buy another one!

The nitty-gritty:

I bought this on Amazon through a promotional sale, so I think my total was like $80 bucks or so. We have been wanting a hard case/shell luggage set for awhile, but many of them are really expensive. No, i'm not going to pay an arm and a leg just for a box with wheels on it. So when I saw this on Amazon, regular price is about $100 bucks (even that is fairly cheap compared to many others) and saw it was on sale, I bought it. It has a nice little winged logo at the center that shows the "R" for Rockland. The handle retracts out so you can lug the case around. What I really liked was the amount of space you have. It really has two compartments, one for each side of the case.

The back/bottom side has a clip on strap so it keeps your items in place and nicely packed. The other top/front side has a zipper to separate from the other side. I travel quite a bit for work and so far it's been awesome! It is pretty nice looking, i've caught the occasional pair of eyes checking it out followed by a glance at their old luggage. The awesome part was that inside the main luggage there was the carry on one, it's an exact replica of the 28" one. So totally worth it! Going to buy a second one for sure!

In a nutshell:

Corey is a great guy, he was easy to communicate with, very polite, helpful, showed up when he said he was going to show up, and got things taken care of. Awesome handy man, will use in the future for sure!

The nitty-gritty:

Corey is a real nice man and he got the job done! Very caring, seems passionate about what he does, he communicated with me via text/email, showed up on time he specified, would use his services again.

A little bit of background of how I came to meet the Heavy Metal Handyman. Amazon introduced Amazon Home Service, where someone will go out to your house and do whatever you need, from a basic move, replacement of home items, assembly, etc. I had purchased a new water faucet through a lightning deal and selected to try out the home services. Originally I had selected someone named "Walter Ibarra", however that turned out to be real bad. I had much trouble with WALTER IBARRA, as that service provider NEVER came through, Amazon couldn't even reach that provider, so I had a faucet leaking for days, I was very frustrated with the overall experience.

I love amazon, but the home services department doesn't seem to have it's act together, but I am sure they will correct their mistakes. Providers like WALTER IBARRA give Amazon a horrible name. If you can't do the job, just tell me. However this review is not about WALTER IBARRA, it is about Corey (Heavy Metal Handyman). He did a great job! Wish him the best and hope to use his services once more. I looked him up online as he told me he was on Task Rabbit and a few other sites, and sure enough he had a 100% positive review amongst many satisfied customers, and he just added one more to the list. Great job Corey and thanks again.

In a nutshell:

If you have a Keurig, if you have limited counter space, you need this.

The nitty-gritty:

This thing does as advertised, it makes your appliance (primarily a coffee maker/Keurig) slide right out. It’s a real cheesy and basic design, pretty much two plastic trays with opposing wheels. Overall this thing is great, makes life easier especially if you own a Keurig.

In a nutshell:

Water... it's good for your cat... buy it... praise the cat lords... all hail the cats...

The nitty-gritty:

Our cat is spoiled, but saying that is an understatement when you own a cat… correction, the cat owns you (apologies great cat lords, all hail the cat lords, meow, meow, meow). I got this as a lightning deal on Amazon, it contained the water fountain along with one filter. I didn’t think the cat was going to like it as she seemed scared at first, but after she sniffed it for a bit, she started to slurp right out of it.

The replacement filters aren’t that expensive and they last a while. Overall this is a nifty little product, very glad I purchased it. I actually noticed the cat (her name is moon) drinks more water than before, so based on the advertisement stated it actually does hold some truth, at least for moon that is.

I got lazy in cleaning it and noticed that the water wasn’t pouring out as it should have. The pump was actually dirty and had to be cleaned from the bottom, once cleaned it ran like normal.
