It's called landscape timber, not a structural beam, so this is appropriate usage for the dimensions and what it's sold for. I use these for raised garden beds, and they work well. If you're looking for laughs, you failed miserably.

Troll.
This says pressure treated in the title, but usually these timbers are not treated the same way that your regular treated 4x4s are. These specifically even say "Water Resistant No" under the specs and are not rated for ground contact. If you need it to last more than a few years and to contact the ground you definitely want regular PT 4x4s.

No HDMI...! JK...these are great. Home Depot will cut these for you in store, which is a big plus for me. Thumbs up and repped.

No, the newbie got it right. You're trolling.

The pictures in the reviews are very good. Reviews also show that this will root after a few years. All depends on your use.

When these are enclosed in concrete .. is that still considered "ground contact" and will rot in a few years ?

Enclosing in concrete can do more harm then good. Really there's aren't suited for too much other than raised flower beds, or decorative structures, even then you'll get a lot more life if you use properly treated posts rated for ground contact.
