About Savvy Sleuth

Hi, my name is Andrea and I’m the gal behind the Savvy Sleuth.

Born and raised in Oregon, I’m a wife, mother, freelance writer, product reviewer, and avid deal shopper, I love sharing deal information with others.

.Shopping online for the past 16 years, I’ve learned a lot about locating and recognizing true deals online.  By following trends, doing product reviews as a Top 100 Amazon reviewer, and doing online research by lurking in deal forums, I’ve got a pretty good idea of what makes a good deal a great deal.

”Finding Clues To Online Deals for You” is the driving force behind all that I do on this blog.

Because I believe in the Golden Rule, I try only to share deals that I would buy myself, but if there’s a deal you’re looking for and it’s not here, let me know and I’ll go to work researching it for you.

Use the FREE Personal Shopper service to get links to personalized deals.

“Finding Clues To Online Deals for You” and loving it – that’s the Savvy Sleuth.

    I read your review of your Sharp TV on Amazon.com and was struck by your problems with wi-fi. FYI, your wi-fi extender will reduce your connection speed to your network by slightly more than 50%. Think of it as having a conversation with someone using a translator. Also, the positioning of your wi-fi router may not be optimal for connection to your TV. To test this use a notebook or tablet PC to check for signal strength at the TV and various other locations around your house, if you haven’t already done that. Oh, and thanks for the review, I may buy one of those Sharp TVs one day.

      Gordon, I understand what you’re saying, and yes, I’ve tested the signal strength of my home network all around the TV. Thanks to the Netgear Nighthawk dual band router, I actually get a strong signal all around my half acre property. When on with Sharp customer service they told me that the wireless adapter in the TV is weaker than those in laptops and tablets. This surprised me, and saddened me that they had not spent just a touch more to get a stronger one installed. As I’m not the only reviewer who had Wifi issues with the TV, and without the extender I still get ’5′ bars of strength when checking with other devices, I think it’s an issue with the TV and something that without a wired connection as backup – would be a deal breaker for me.
