I'm biased against their audio products (much better gear for much less $$ is out there). I can't imagine a TV from them being different.

We put in two Galcier Bay dual flush toilets in our house.

They run $100 each from Home Depot (it is their store brand)!

So far, they both work great(in service for a little over a year).

They aren't bad. I would like 4-6 for my patio, but not at the US costs. I stayed at the Thunderbird Motel in Marfa TX (each room has a pair). they said they got theires across the border for cheap. Not sure if it's worth the risk to make the trip for chairs......

I purchased a Herman Miller LCW from Lexington Modern and am very pleased with it (even though it took months to ship because it was out of stock).

I like OXO for kitchen tools and Mundial knives (low cost but high quality blades).

I think the Malm is ok as-is. Actually, they look fairly sharp in a plain way.

Can we give that cat a make-over? Jesus....

Planted tanks take SO much work (more than my feef tanks). They are amazing though!

A local bowling ally was giving away their replaced lanes. Would have been neat for something like this.

You can also take and cover a plain cord with Techflex.

I just put in a 40 gpd RO unit in for about $150. It was easy to install and makes great tasting (and safe) drinking water. Only downsid to RO is that they wast water in the process.

I can’t imagine this would sound very good. There is no internal dampening (in what would be a very “lively” cabinet) or bracing.

For those saying that the before is better, you are lookiing at it on a non calibrated screen!

I see the benefit, but my $15 sound and vision DVD does a fine job.

It amazes me how many issues folks have with CFL's. We have been 100% CFL for a few years without issues. We did have to find a frind a brand and color temp we liked.

CFL's CAN NOT be used with a dimmer (unless stated)! Most should say that on the package.

I also have the Lexington Modern knockoff and am very pleased with it. While I know you aren't asking for a direct copy, I would still suggest it. my only catch was that they were aout of stock and it took MONTHS for it to come in. Given the price, I can't say anything bad about it.

I see everyone's point about buying the real thing. I would love to have the real thing, but can't justify it for a rarely used bedroom chair. And to the craigslist suggestions; that's great if you live in an area with an abundance of MCM classics, but I don't. Things like that don't show up around here.
