LG HFB-500 Solar Powered Bluetooth Speakerphone System

This is practically new since I've only used it for about a month but it is by far the best bluetooth system I've tried and I have tried several (including many that were much more expensive). I spent a lot of time in the car but could never find my bluetooth headset, or when I did, it was always dead and in need of a charge. This was far better since it was super easy to use, had very loud and clear reception and best of all, was solar powered so never ever had to be charged after the first time.

It syncs easily with any bluetooth capable device and mounts well to the windshield. It also has an auto-shutoff to conserve battery power if you forget to turn it off. Just in case, it also comes with a DC charger which I kept in the car but never had to use after the initial charge. The brief exposure it had to the power of the sun always kept it on full power even though my car was in an underground garage all day and .

Braun 6022 ThermoScan (Electric Ear Thermometer)
Purchased in Israel for 400 nis about 2. 5 to 3 years ago. This takes an instant and accurate temperature reading of your child (or an adult) within a few seconds. Much faster and easier to use than traditional thermometers and much more comfortable for the child since it is placed in the ear rather than... some less comfortable locations on the body. Tempurture can be given in Fahrenheit or Celsius (your choice). Only used a few time and in perfect condition. Manual included.

New Touchscreen Universal Remote Control

This is an amazing universal remote that I bought at BUG here in Israel for 300 nis a couple years ago right before our move to Bet Shemesh. It disappeared during the move and I only found it now that we're starting to pack to move again. I had since bought a different one so never ended up using it. It is in perfect condition with not a scratch on it.

The entire face is a touchscreen which is configurable to match your existing remotes (most universal remote have set buttons which may or may not match your other remotes). It is very easy to use. You first press a button to signify which item you want to use (it can control up to 8 devices, TV, DVD, Satellite, Cable box, VCR, Stereo system, etc, etc. Even things like fans and air conditioners) then you press what you want it to do (change channel, fast forward, etc.).

It is extremely easy to set up. All you have to do is either put in the pre-set code that matches the remote you want to copy (it comes with a list of codes) or just line the universal remote up with the remote you want to copy and press the “learn” button and it will automatically copy your original remotes functionality. This is a great way to finally rid yourself of all your remote and have one for everything. You can also program more sophisticated macros to do a series of actions, but I’ve never tried to do that

One of my favorite features is that it is a built in motion sensor. As soon as you pick it up, the entire screen’s back light turns on so you can see the buttons very clearly. Requires 3 AAA batteries (not included). Manual in Hebrew and English included (model: Sunwave SRC-3060). For more photos and details click here.

NEW Monster Cable Brand Component Cables 8 Meters Long (26.25 Feet)

New and unopened. For those in the know, Monster Cables are THE best cables in the world and give you the absolute best picture for your TV, movies and video games. What is the point of having an expensive system if your cheap cables don't let you experience its full potential?

These are 8 meters long (26.25 feet) so length will not be a problem. They are ideal for hooking up systems that are spaced further away from your TV or projector for regular length cables. I currently have a set of these connecting both my Wii and my dvd player to a projector and my TV and the picture quality is great. These retail for over $125 in the US and are virtually impossible to find in Israel. I could only find them in one high-end audio/video store in Ra'anana which was charging over 1000 NIS for them! But if you have a projector, these are a must.

Panasonic DVD XP-50 DVD, CD, DVD-Audi0, DVD-RAM Player
+ 2 DVD-Audio Discs
This is a rare DVD Player that was rated the best in the world by aficionados a few years back. It is a very sleek shiny chrome design and is packed with features including unusual ones since as changing the angle of the movie you are watching (many movies are made using multiple camera angles) and having built-in receiver capabilities (you can connect surround sound speakers directly to the unit). It is also one of the only dvd players in the world with the famed Faroudja chip which was only used briefly since they were deemed too expensive (due to competition, manufacturers were forced to sell the dvd players for less than the chip itself cost. To make the DVD Players cheaper, they discontinued using this chip).It also has superior sounds quality and is one of the few dvd players that can play DVD-Audio and DVD-RAM discs. (For more on DVD-Audio see Wikepedia here). Many happy owners claim they can hear things they've "never heard before" when listening to music on this unit.

I've also thrown in two rare DVD-Audio discs that sell for between $70 and $100 each (Alanis Morrisette and Foreigner) I've only listened to them once. Some great reviews of this DVD player. This unit is hard to find but I found a used one for sale for $1,000 here. You can read a review here and find more info from Panasonic's website here. Manual, remote and 2 DVD-Audio discs (pictured) are included.

NEW Wall Mount for LCD TVs sized 32"-60"

Brand: Atdec, Model # TH-32-60-UFB
We dragged this from the US where it costs between $100-$150 to mount our TV, but the apartment had no wall to mount it on (as you can see from our entertainment center photo above). So this has gone completely unused and is still brand new (though we removed the box to get it to fit into our luggage). I assume it would cost around double in Israel.

It features the ability to tilt your TV (which not all mounts have) and an anti-theft feature to protect your TV. You can read more details about this specific model on Radio Shack's website here.

Brand: Philips, Model #32PF5320. Measures 36.7 x 21.65 x 8.75 inches (WxHxD) We love this TV. It has stunning color and a real vivid picture.

Samsung 19" LCD TV

Brand: Samsung. Model # SyncMaster 940MW
This is about 2.5 years old and was a spare TV that was hardly used. In all honesty, I think we may have used it only 3 or 4 times. It is in excellent condition and has a really crisp picture. The TV itself has some nice features such as picture in picture and A really nice TV with some great features. It has a worldwide tuner which means it will work in any country in the world, picture-in-picture and lots of input options on both the side and the back (you can use either). Everything that came with it is included (remote, some cables and a manual). The manufacturer's description and specs are below below:

Home Movie Theater:
High End 1080p Projector, Projector Mount, Retractable Movie Screen, Movie Screen Mount, Extra Long Premium cables/wires, Cable splitters, Plastic covers to hide the wires

Unlike most projectors which are built for board rooms and business presentations, this is an actual movie projector designed for entertainment. It is one of the few projectors that can actually project a full 1920 x 1080p picture (1080p is the best picture possible). It retails for over $3500 in the US as you can see from a simple Google price search
here. Model # NEC HT1100. It also includes a ceiling mount which retails for $150 to over $200 in the US as you can see here. A retractable movie screen (less that 1 year old) and mount is included which would cost another couple hundred dollars All the premium quality, extra long cables and splitters are included. These are required to connect all your peripherals to the projector (Dvd player, media player, Wii, etc.) and would cost another couple hundreds dollars. Plastic covers to organize and hide your cables are also included And of course while all this totals over $4,000 in the US, it would likely cost double here in Israel (if you could even find all the components).

Electric Appliance Protector
I'm not sure what these are called but after we had a stereo system get fried by the semi-irregular power they have in Israel (surges, fluctuations, etc.), we were told to by these to protect our expensive appliances (computer, fridge, washing machine, etc). We have several and I purchased them all within 1 to 2 years ago for between 69.95 and 89.95 nis.

Kenwood 6.1 Home Theater Stereo System/Receiver + 6 Surround Sound Speakers and Subwoofer
This is a 6.1 Home Theater Stereo Receiver that I paid $800 on sale, in the States. This is the heart of your home theater system and enables you to connects everything you own to it (TV, projector, cd/dvd player, vcr, projector media player, game system such as a Nintendo Wii, and more) and it provides customizable surround sound. It also has a built in AM/FM radio. The only problem is that the lcd panel sometimes fades out and I'm not sure why. I know there is a feature that lets you have it fade out intentionally since many people find it distracting when they are watching, but it likely needs to be repaired if you want to use this feature Though it is a cheap fix, I never bothered fixing it since it really didn't bother me and wasn't needed for its use. Because of this minor
problem, I'm selling it ridiculously cheap. Being from the US it requires a transformer to operate which I'm selling separately.

NEW "Now You Can Find It" Remote Locater by Sharper Image (to find lost keys and stuff)
"Now You Can Find It" Locater by Sharper Image (never used):
I bought this a couple years ago for $60 right before a move and then ironically could never find the box until now. It is still in its original packaging and works fine. It comes with 8 different color key chains that you can attack to things you frequently lose (your keys, wallet, glasses, TV remote, pda, etc.) and a remote control. The remote has 8 different corresponding color buttons (and optional identifying stickers you can attach). When you press a button on the remote,
the matching keychain blinks and beeps until you find it. You don't have
to worry about losing the remote either since it is magnetic and sticks to your fridge or front door. Please note: while this is great for finding your lost keys, I can't really see attaching these to most other things that the manufacturer recommends (who would wear one of these on their glasses)? They came with batteries but they likely have to be replaced at this point since they have been sitting in a box for 2 years. Otherwise, works fine.

Mio P550 Pocket with Integrated GPS
This is a very lightly used Mio P550 that looks news. I recently purchased it to upgrade from my older Mio as this one has many more features such as wifi and Bluetooth making this much more than your standard Pocket PC. You can transfer files wirelessly and and even surf the net! The GPS is excellent and works fully in English (UK/American), Hebrew and many other languages.

The pocket PC software is also great and comes with some games, Microsoft Office, Outlook, etc and can be fully synched with your computer. It also comes with a couple extras including a protective case, a collapsible stylus and a 1GB SD card (with Israeli maps but plenty of extra room for games and other apps). It also has a never used DC charger for the car (I lost the original one so just purchased it), an AC charger for the home (dual voltage), and a windshield/vent mount. The windshield mount isn't particularly good and wouldn't stay up so I used the vent mount option instead (mounts to an air conditioner vent). It didn't come with a cable to sync it with your computer but it is the standard usb cable that comes with most digital cameras so I'll throw one in.

You can read the specs here.

This goes for over 2000 nis in Israel as you can see here plus then you need to buy the GPS software which costs around 500 nis

Mio 168 Pocket PC with Integrated GPS, Movie Player + Lots of Extras

his is a great Pocket PC that I've used exclusively as a GPS here in Israel. It came with US maps also but I've never tried those.

High-End Transformers
All made in the USA for use in Israel (paid extra to have an Israeli plug installed - not a European or USA plug like most transformers). These are a must to protect your electronics and appliances from the US. They safely convert the voltage for more sophisticated products that would normally be destroyed but cheap transformers. Add a US powerstrip (I have these for sale as well) and one can power an entire room full of US made products. The key is to look at the products you wish to convert and how much voltage they require (this information is printed on the product itself). For example, a phone or baby monitor from the US may only take 3 to 6 watts of power, while a stereo system may take 300 watts and a toaster oven could take 1200 watts. Add up all the watts of the items you wish to plug into the powerstrip and then as long as that number does not exceed the wattage of the transformer, you will be safe. The following transformers are for sale:
