The AeroGarden reservoir provides the root system with an abundant balance of oxygen, water, and nutrients to enable plants to grow 5 times faster than when grown in soil. Root systems are suspended in air and water inside the reservoir and naturally grow fast and efficiently as ideal levels of nutrients and water are automatically delivered exactly when needed.

    here's a review by a customer:
    Excellent sound for such a small speaker. Bass performance is very good. These are better sounding than the Play:3's, especially if you pair two of the Play:1's. I have tried numerous multi-room speaker

    solutions that utilized either bluetooth or air play networking and the Sonos product line impresses with the ease of setup and the rock solid connections. I would suggest purchasing their Boost product if you

    have many speakers in various locations around the house. I have so far purchased 4 Play:1 speakers, a Play:5, and a Connect:Amp to run rock speakers out at the pool. The furthest distance in my setup is

    between the Boost and my Connect:Amp, through 3 walls and about 100 feet with no issues. check it here

    here's a review by a customer:
    Seriously!!! This thing has been a life saver. We recently built a decent sized home, and our downstairs is around 2800 sq ft. Keeping up on vacuuming/sweeping was almost impossible with 2 young kids a cat and a dog! My mom talked me into one of these swearing by it. I was super skeptical of spending $330.00 on a machine that I may need to sweep up after frequently. I haven't touched a vacuum in 2 weeks!!! Our GreatRoom/Kitchen/Dinning/Laundry is all hard surfaces (tile and hardwood) and this thing picks up nearly EVERYTHING that falls on the floor! It picks up MORE than sweeping. Every other day when we empty the bin, there is so much more than just the crumbs the kids drop. This thing goes under our couch. Ask yourself - how often do you successfully vacuum under the couch? Well I do it every day now! LOL :) The 690 also navigates around multiple chairs very well. The 690 isn't perfect. We have a large rug in our GreatRoom and Johnny-5 won't go onto the rug. It's not that tall of a lip either. But I'm okay with that, since 98% of the other surfaces are clean. I set him to start working at 0900 right when we leave the house. There's been one time over the past 2 weeks he caught up a string from a cat toy and stopped. Other than that - I'll drop him in our Master or Master bath/closet and hit clean while we are in the other rooms. I hope these machines to continually get better (smarter, as in map a room without setting up laser fences). This thing is well worth the $330.00 plus some. I'd buy it again in a heart beat.
