Some of the high quality equipment that’s advertised on TV really isn’t as high quality as they say.
I hated the special sideways power drill that I bought on a whim one afternoon.
It basically allows you to get in at different angles instead of going straight with the normal power trip. Needless to say, it’s not a very good tool. I’ve learned that if you want to get good tools you need to go to a hardware store. Buying them off infomercials from TV is never going to result in a good solution. That’s as long as you’re using your tools for actual work and not just buying them to look at them. But this isn’t the only example of something that I bought off TV that inevitably disappointed me beyond belief. Another thing that I recently purchased that’s going to go in the garage for storage is this portable air conditioner. I thought a portable air conditioner would be better than a window air conditioner, but they’re actually worse. They take cold air from inside the house and blow it outside just to cool the hot compressor inside the portable air conditioner itself. If the portable air conditioner had its compressor outside, it wouldn’t need to waste cold air just to keep it from overheating. The inefficiency of a portable air conditioner is built into its design. That’s why I would rather use a window air conditioner if I had the choice. Sometimes window air conditioners are cheaper too, so that’s why I would rather stick to using those because I know they work.
