    Those paint roller things that the paint goes into the handle and "automatically" feeds the roller.

    One use and it was useless the next time I tried (and I spent a long time cleaning it too.)

    sstlaure ; I bought 2 different type of them paint rollers, 1 worked very well, put over 20 some gals. of paint on badly poured cement basement floor and walls, the other one was junk, that was 12 years ago. yes don't buy the first year run of production, my uncle wanted me to wait on my 2520 for another year, jd assured me they started in 2005, I to this day have not seen one for sale year 2005. when I first bought mine, the 62d decks was on back order so they loaned me a finish mower to use, 2 months later deck came in, so off to dealer to install, no good my frame rails was not correctly the same wideth, to get the mower arms(mule)? to latch under the frame we had to use a crowbar, how upset do u think I was. next week mobile mechanic came to house and changed out the front end, the brush guard, and the holder where them arms latch into, plus we had to add washers between frame rails to make them even so every thing would line up. that was in 2006, fast forward to 2014 3pt arms replaced finally at $ 636.00 don't forget the front axle upgrade of around $2,800.00, 2 bent front rims, etc,etc. still my tractor was a tough machine.

    AT&T HTC ONE X cell phone. It was junk. Had to restart it at least 4 times a day. went through 4 SIMM cards.
    After buying a new phone, I ran over the HTC with a 80 ton crane, so no one else would go through what I did.

    My One X was great until ATT did an update and it did exactly what you said. They upgraded me to a One X+ for $30 and that's been good for 2 years.

    Centurylink internet is a total turd for us as well. We're lucky to see 1.2meg's down and up you better just let it ride for a while. Sadly, this was after they put fiber in our neighborhood.
