This is a pretty nice fidget spinner. A decent spin gets about a minute to a minute and a half although the lights only work for the first 15 seconds. This is a metal spinner so I expected it to spin a bit longer, but overall this is a pretty nice and bright LED spinner that’s fun to use.
One thing I question the seller about is the choice of packaging. I received this three pointed spinner in a container that is clearly for a two pointed spinner. Having the metal tin is nice but I have other spinners the same size and shape that have come in metal tins where they were designed for three pointed spinners.
If you are interested in this spinner for $13.99 (as of writing this review) on Amazon you can find it here.

I currently have the Apple Watch Series 1 42mm and it fits perfectly into this. That is not surprising seeing as both current versions of the Apple Watch have the same dimensions. This band also comes in the 38mm version.
This comes in a nice clean box that reminds me of Apple packages. Once open there is a thank you card and the watch band itself.
Once out of the box it was pretty easy to mount the Apple Watch in it. Rather that using the sliding clips that many watch bands use, to put the watch in this band you just have to push it into the frame.
At first I was worried the watch itself might fall out but the way the band keeps the watch held in place felt firm. After putting the watch and band on it felt a little tight that’s probably because I have a larger wrist than most people.
After a couple days of wearing this band the leather has gotten less stiff and it wraps around my wrists much more comfortably.
I have a couple fidget spinners and this is the first three edged metal one. I like the metal fidget spinners because they have more weight and feel like they spin longer. I like to use this as a one handed spinner because the weight allows you to put more power into the spin with one hand making it spin longer.
In the video shown this spinner lasted about 2:50 but in hand it has lasted as long as 4 minutes on a decent spin. This spinner doesn’t use the same bearing as many other spinners but based on the time I don’t think that matters. This spinner is a little noisy, but I only use my spinners at home so it doesn’t effect me, but if you were to use it somewhere quiet it would be audible from a distance.
Overall the build quality of this spinner is quite nice I highly prefer metal spinners as opposed to the 3D printed ones or the other plastic ones. I feel like this is a spinner that will last especially as I have dropped it a couple times with minimal damage to the metal finish.

Exgreem Neon Accent LED Strips Bias Backlight RGB Lights with Remote Control for HDTV, Flat Screen TV Accessories and Desktop PC, Multi Color (118 inches)
I got this LED strip to put around my desk and accent the lights already in my computer and they work perfectly. I recently purchased a shorter version of this to put inside my computer and they came out pretty good.
Controlling the LEDs is pretty easy with the remote. You can choose from 16 colors that stay on, a flashing mode that flashes between each color, the strobe mode tapers a white light on and off, the fade setting offers kind of a chroma look to it fading between each color, and the smooth mode that I don’t notice any difference from the flash mode. There are also two buttons the adjust the brightness of the light by pressing and holding them I find it not necessary to lower the lighting inside my computer case because having it bright makes the inside look better, but having the lights on my desk behind my monitor and speakers its nice to adjust the lighting based on how bright my room is.

I got these fidget spinner bearings a couple weeks ago and they are pretty nice.
Although these bearings are noisy they are well worth the price ($8.99). The spinner in the picture is relatively light to some of the others I have, but still gets a decent 2:30 out of a good spin. The 2:30 spin isn’t the best but I still think the price being less than a dollar a bearing makes them still worth it.
Overall for the price these bearings are worth getting, although you could go for the more expensive ceramic or silica nitride to get better spin times.
Recently one of my NES controllers started to act up so getting this has been really nice on top of the Wireless NES Controller I reviewed a couple days ago.
Now this controller is pretty close to the actual one but the buttons feel different. The A and B button don’t feel as responsive as a normal controller and when trying to tap the quickly they make quite a loud plastic on plastic tapping sound.
I got this mostly for my Dad who plays our NES Classic Mini a lot and since getting the wireless controller I don’t think hes tried this new one. Overall if you need a controller and especially since this one can be bought through Amazon Prime One-day/Same-day shipping I recommend it, but going back to the Wireless NES Controller I would recommend instead getting that since its not much more expensive and it’s wireless!

I originally got this backpack back before the fishing season started. I have gone fishing a couple times this season and this backpack was very helpful and can carry a lot of stuff.
In the main pouch I store 4 small containers that hold different hard plastic baits along with enough space to pick up a snack or a lunch to have out on he dock. The multiple compartments allows for good organisation and the straps around the sides allow you to compress the bag some to save some space if you fill it completely.
The zippers on this bag feel heavy duty and they haven’t had any trouble getting stuck opening or closing.
There are three buckles on this bag. One in the front which clips to the top of the back, Another near the chest which keeps the shoulder straps secured after put on, and the last one is around the waist to keep the bag from bouncing while walking.
Overall this is a nice backpack I have been using for fishing.
A little trick I use is to take the side compression straps apart and put a fishing rod or two under the strap and put it back together. I used this trick for longer walks to fishing spots, but beware any tree above you will be caught and you could even be caught if you don’t set up your hooks so they aren’t swinging around (Happened on a couple occasions lol). I have a waterproof cellphone pouch looped through one of the top straps for when I don’t want to have my phone in my pocket or it starts raining. I also have a small umbrella looped through two of the very small side straps.
