Very, very nice! I have the F4 version and even though I'm sure it comes nowhere close to the 2.8, it's my favorite lens and hardly comes off the body.

Yes, 600VA. They both set up easily. They're much lighter than I expected, too. I may grab a couple more. Our power blips usually last a minute or less, so these should work out fine for the lightweight stuff I have plugged into them.

Considerably lighter than the F2.8, though.

Picked this up on Monday. We are redoing our garage and I wanted something I can put my tools on when I am working in the garage close by. 1 of many purchases to make the garage nice and full of storage.

Ordered them in February, picked them up in May when it was too hot to get all snuggly in bed. Putting them on tomorrow, can't wait!

First of all: The negative comments onto the fitment of the enclosed 3-different-size pads are all true. I had used at the end a pair of my remaining pads of Dr.Dre Beats and now the fitment is perfect.
Sound, loudness, quality and noise cancellation are ok, don't expect too deep basses but the overall sound is ok for me.
Very quick rechargement, I use them up to aprx. 2h into the gym and they're lasting w/o probs, recharging independently into the box in-between now for the third time w/o recharging the store box.
Had payed onto Prime day around 28 bucks and be fine with them.

Will do. I'm sure it will go well, as we have slept in these sheets before. If you're ever in Carmel, Ca, check out the Tickle Pink Inn for a test drive of your own. They're glorious.

The original ladder was cheap to begin with and had a max load of 225lbs, which seemed optimistic. So now a new, all-aluminum one is going in. Getting the old one out was a pain in the ass.

Do you have a link to where you purchased this? I need to replace ours.


Thank you!

375lbs. If I get too heavy for that one, I won't be able to fit into the attic anyway.

And when they recommend two people for installing this, they're not kidding. 3 would be better.

That sounds great. There are times I am climbing the stairs carrying a heavy box or bin and stare at the 250 lb. limit while the stairs are shaking...

Haven't gotten there yet. The guy I had helping me had to leave after we got the old one out (which took way longer than we had planned). He's supposed to be back this weekend to finish it up.

If I had to do it over again, I'd have used some metal strapping to hold the old ladder to the ceiling joists temporarily while I removed all the screws from the old ladder frame. Then close the door, secure the underside with temporary 1x4s, then remove the metal straps and lift the old door out of the opening.
