Avery Tri-Fold Brochure with Tear - Away Cards, 50 Brochures (16152)
Avery Tri-Fold Brochure with Tear - Away Cards, 50 Brochures (16152)
Price: $8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, nifty for coupons/promotions, March 3, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Avery's Tri-Fold Brochure with Tear-Aways cards is a nifty idea. At first, I questioned the need for the tear-away cards on brochures. They suggest using them as business cards, coupons, or promotions. I don't see much need in using them as business cards, but the coupons or promotional use is a great idea.

Designing and printing the brochures is simple, as are most Avery products. The material is a nice product and it feels professional. The cards are pre-scored, but could use a better perforation.

Overall, the brochures with cards are a nice touch. They might have limited use in some businesses, but do offer a good amount of professionalism and are a simple way to deliver promotions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A powerful, well made trimmer, March 3, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Philips Norelco NT3155/60 Trimmer is one of the better trimmers I have ever used. When I first took the device out of the package I could tell it was a well made item. It felt solid and strong, unlike many of the cheap trimmers that last only a couple of months.

The battery compartment cover is firm, the blade on top is solid as well. I know it sounds silly, but if you have used many trimmers you are well aware of how flimsy most of them feel. Even the comb that fits on the blade is snug and secure.

After popping the battery in and turning the trimmer on you are instantly surprised by the amount of power it delivers. It was a pleasant surprise. I really do love this trimmer, but if there is one fault it might be how the blade/trimmer is to the curve of the head. It might just be me, but it was hard to determine if I had the blade down against the skin or area you wanted to trim. It's easy enough to get used to, though, especially with the overall quality of the device.

We'll see how long the trimmer lasts, but I have very high hopes. It's one of my new favorite tools on the sink. Definitely recommended.


BLU Studio 6.0 HD Smartphone - Unlocked - Black

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice device with only minor quirks; Feels like a premium device, March 3, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The BLU Studio 6.0 HD Smartphone is an excellent device, offering a phone with many nice features at a great off-contract price. BLU does a great job of making their product feeling premium and overall, it's a good device for just about anybody.

Opening the box, you get a pretty nice experience. It's well packaged and includes a screen protector, headset, and case. Most manufacturers don't include all the extras and expect you to purchase them individually. So receiving them up front is a nice touch. The case has a firm grip to it and fit the phone very well. The cutout for the headphone jack was a little rough, but not a big deal. The screen protector was fairly average, fairly simple to install and did not disturb the use of the screen. The only issue I had with the case was that it did make it difficult to use the buttons, but that is often the issue with cases.

While the 6" screen is a bit large, it is a really nice display. It's clear and bright. The phone itself feels fairly light for a 6" device, but it's still a little bulky in your pocket. Performance was very nice. Most applications were snappy. The processor held its own and the 1GB RAM was adequate. Obviously, I would prefer more internal storage, but it's a great start. You can add a micro SD card if the 8GB isn't enough (and it likely won't be enough). That's an easy fix though and memory cards are super cheap these days.

Phone quality was excellent when I tried it on the AT&T network. Internet browsing on both the cellular network and Wi-Fi was good. Camera was good and more than adequate, but not the camera of a premium or flagship device. The charging port is on top, which some people love and some people hate. I'm somewhat indifferent, but prefer a charging port on the bottom.

One issue I had was with buttons. The volume is on the left, directly across from the power/lock button on the opposite side. While it may not be an issue on smaller phones, I found myself adjusting the volume when hitting the lock button. The size of the device made me hold the device in a way where my thumb kept hitting the volume.

Overall, I'm very pleased with the BLU Studio 6 HD. It feels like a premium device. While it does have a few minor quirks, the specifications hold up well and the phone is very easy to like and enjoy.


Revlon Curl Collection Heated Styling Brush

3.0 out of 5 stars It works, but is disappointing in a few areas, February 27, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Revlon Curl Collection Heated Styling Brush does a pretty good job with styling, but misses the mark in a few areas. The overall styling ability is pretty good, it definitely gets hot enough (almost too hot) to style hair. However, it's a bit too bulky, has no temperature control, and the size of the brush probably isn't the best for most people.

My main issue is the fact that there is no temperature setting. That really limits you and styling with this brush when at its hottest can be difficult. The glove can be helpful, but it awkward with the bristles of the brush and the brush itself is a bit too small. It can be difficult to style much. But it does do a good job of styling when at the right temperature. I wish the brush was a big larger, but then the entire thing might be too big. Overall, it works, but is a bit disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast, easy to setup, and works flawlessly, February 24, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
TP-LINK's UH720 USB 3 Hub with Smart Charging Ports works flawlessly. It's fast, simple to setup, and provides plenty of USB inputs for all of your devices. The USB Hub is equipped with USB 3.0, so you'll get plenty of transfer speed for your newest devices.

Setup really is quick and easy. As advertised, it's plug and play. You are up and going quickly without hassle. I tried several devices and all of them worked like a charm. The device itself is nothing fancy. It's black and does not stand out. It's relatively small to have a large number of ports, so it's doesn't take up too much space. The smart charging ports are handy, as well.

The spacing between ports is just right. The power is on the left, charging ports on the right, and the additional USB ports all lined up on front. The device itself is fairly light. If you don't have much hooked up to it, it can be somewhat easy to knock or pull off your desk. However, once you have a few devices hooked up, it's sturdy and stays in place.

Overall, it's been flawless. If you have a large number of devices and want to have some extra charging ports, then the TP-LINK UH720 is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ability to add tear-away cards makes this a winner, February 22, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Avery's Matte White Flyers with Tear-Away Cards are a nifty business marketing product (although if you are advertising something in your local community, they'd be great for personal use, too). While you could easily accomplish this task with a plain or stock piece of paper and simply precut the ends like most of us have done for years, the Avery version offers a very professional product. For businesses, the quality and the ability to design your flyer and cards is simply fantastic.

You can also layer the tear-away cards, placing more cards on a flyer in higher traffic areas, or returning to your flyer to add more at a later date when the first set has been depleted. I know it sounds simple, but the ability to add cards and layer them is a great idea. The cards tear away fairly easy as well. My only concern is the adhesive. While I didn't have any issue using them, I'd be concerned about extreme wet weather or extreme heat/cold having an effect on them. But in my environment, during late Winter with temperatures above 30-40 degrees, I did not have any problems.

Designing them is simple, as is the case with most Avery products. Overall, I was thrilled with the idea of the tear-away cards and the implementation went very well. Would definitely recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice play on tent cards, February 22, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Avery's Adhesive Round Display Cards are a new alternative to tent cards. I'd imagine there are tons of uses. These would look very professional in a bakery, or any business that has a glass showcase of their products. They would also be great for tradeshows, conferences, or anywhere you might have a booth setup. A dinner party or buffet might also be a good use.

They are very easy to design and print. As is typical with Avery products, you have plenty of options out of the box, but there is plenty of room for your own adjustments and customizations. The adhesive does a good job of holding, but I was more surprised at how cleanly they came off. I've been extremely pleased with all the Avery products coming to consumers and small businesses lately. They have really been producing some great products that can be used by any of us and the round display cards are no exception.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Avery's Small (2" x 3.5") Tent Cards are great for meetings, conferences, trade shows, or place cards. We used these at a recent dinner that was more of a buffet style. They worked very well and added a real professional touch. It was an easy way to identify the food (although if you want much more information on the card, like an ingredient list, you would need to use a bigger tent card. Avery also offers them in a large size or a medium size that might be better for your situation. It really depends on the amount of content you want to place on the cards. The small tent cards are likely best for name place cards, either for a dinner or meeting/conference.

Setup and printing was super simple, which is something I always love about Avery products. The cards are embossed, giving them a nice feel and look. The weight of the cards is just right and they really do feel professional. I can certainly see using this in a business setting. I would definitely recommend these for your next event.

Avery's (2.5" x 8.5") Tent Cards are great for meetings, conferences, trade shows, or place cards. We used these at a recent dinner that was more of a buffet style. They worked very well and added a real professional touch. It was an easy way to identify the food and even offer a brief description or ingredient list. I think these are the most appropriate size, although Avery also offers them in a large size that might be better for your situation.
