1Byone 50 Miles Range Digital Outdoor HDTV Antenna

Cable is one of the biggest unnecessary bills that you can have. As a soon to be newly wed, we will be purchasing our first home in just a few months. I was shocked to hear the prices that my friends and family pay just so they can view their televisions every night! Every single person paid over $100 a month!! This is one cost I am hoping to avoid.

Previously we had a rabbit-ear type antenna. With it, we were able to pick up 5 different channels, which included 2 local news stations. We thought we were doing pretty well, that is until I received the 1byone 50 mile range digital outdoor HDTV Antenna! This product has doubled our viewing capacity, and we now receive 11 crystal clear channels.

This is with scanning for channels and keeping the antenna inside. We have not yet tested how many channels we could receive if we placed the receiver outside of our window. Overall, I am very happy with this product and can say that it receives many more channels than your standard antenna.

If you are interested in purchasing a 1Byone Digital Antenna for yourself, you can purchase it directly on Amazon  or on 1Byone's website: Thanks for reading!

I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Marsboy Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with LED Lights

Bluetooth speakers are the way of the future. No more cords, no need to be tethered to the speakers with the freedom to go wherever you please! Marsboy an amazing LED Bluetooth speaker that will keep you and your guests entertained for hours on end! The LED lights are vibrant and change color right in time with the song you are listening to.

As soon as you pull it out of the box, it is ready to go. Mine arrived partially charged and the functions are basically self explanatory. There are pause/play buttons, forward/back buttons, volume controls, mode and light pattern buttons. You have the ability to plug in your device using the included aux cord, insert a micro-SD card, or listen via Bluetooth.

One of my favorite features of this Marsboy speaker is that it contains an internal battery that is charged with a micro-usb cord. This is likely the same cord that charges your phone, tablets and so many more things, making it so easy to charge the speaker without having to worry about finding the cord! When someone calls you while listening to music on your phone , the speaker will automatically pick it up and turn it into speakerphone mode.

I am really amazed at the sound quality that the Marsboy Wireless speaker puts out. It is crystal clear and can get very loud if you wish. The distance that the Bluetooth is able to connect is also outstanding. We were able to have a steady stream when the phone was on the other side of the house. Overall, I highly recommend this speaker. It works exactly as described and is packed with features!

I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. Regardless, all opinions are my own.
