Selling Items? Looking For Consumer Reviews? You will get many more responses when selling electronics or appliances if you include the brand name and model number, especially if the item is from a more valuable, premium brand. There is often a huge quality difference between major manufacturer vs mystery brand or generic units. If it is something you only need to use for a short time, a generic may suit the purpose while saving a few bucks. On the other hand, a used premium brand item may be worth more and provide longer, more reliable service than a generic new one from the supermarket bargain bin. Today it is very simple to research any potential purchase items online. Look at a few different reviews from different websites to get a feel for the “market average opinion”. Caveat emptor! -Ed.
Review sites, fairly reliable in my experience:

Summer Solstice Info: In 2019, the June solstice will occur on Friday, June 21, at 5:54 pm in Málaga. This date marks the official beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, occurring when Earth arrives at the point in its orbit where the North Pole is at its maximum tilt (about 23.5 degrees) toward the Sun, causing the longest day and shortest night of the calendar year. The “longest day” means the longest period of sunlight. At the June solstice, the Northern Hemisphere receives sunlight at the most direct angle for the year. In terms of daylight, this day is 5 hours, 2 minutes longer than on December Solstice. Earliest sunrise is on June 13 or June 14. Latest sunset is on June 28 or June 29… More at:
