Philips SHQ2300LF/27 ActionFit Sports Earbuds Headphones, Lime
Philips SHQ2300LF/27 ActionFit Sports Earbuds Headphones, Lime
Price: $29.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice features, lacks a bit on performance and comfort, July 1, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Philips SHQ2300LF/27 Action Fit Sports earbuds have some promising qualities, but lack in a few key areas. Having a pair of earbuds/headphones that can withstand workouts, action, and moving around are great, but the Action Fit Sports took some getting used to. There are also headphones in this series, as well as earbuds.

The earbuds are very lightweight, which were impressive. They were almost unnoticeable from that perspective. At times, I almost had to make sure they were still in my ear and that's the problem. They are lightweight and can be hard to notice, but the sound was not very noticeable either. The fit in the ears was not as idea as I had hoped. Worse yet, outside noise was distracting and not well displaced by the earbuds. Also, they were also a bit awkward. The earbud itself is small, but the outer part is larger and that part was noticeable in the ear.

There are some positives here, though. The cable clip is a nice addition and the cable does a good job of staying tangle free. In contrast, the cable is also a bit stiff, but that's likely what lends itself to being tangle-free. I just wish there was more performance, sound output, and noise reduction. But from an athletic perspective, I can see how these would be a positive to have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quiet at times and powerful, June 27, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Haier ESAQ406P Ultra Quiet Window Air Conditioner sells itself on being quiet and powerful. In many instances, this is the case and the unit does an excellent job of cooling.

Upon receiving the unit, I can say it is certainly heavy. The weight might be on par with other units that cool this amount of space, but I'm used to using smaller window air conditioners. Installation was as expected, but make sure you have some assistance.

I picked a perfect time to get this air conditioner as we had a hot streak of weather. It has since cooled down a bit, but I was able to put the unit through its paces. It did an excellent job of cooling about a 300 sq ft space. It was never uncomfortable. The weather has ranged from high 90s down to high 60s. During the nights we were able to use the quiet mode and it was extremely pleasant. During the day other fan speeds were used and it was a little more quiet than other units. But most of the selling point here likely comes in the quiet mode.

Overall, I have been very pleased. It has kept up with the weather and offers many options with the fan and controls, as well as the adjustable vents in the front. This is my first experience with Haier, but so far it has been pleasant


Belkin Pocket Sleeve for Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (Blue)
Belkin Pocket Sleeve for Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (Blue)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good design, protection, and accessory for the SP3, June 27, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Belkin Pocket Sleeve for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is a nice case, with moderate protection and a few extras that other cases do not provide. I've used a good number of SP3 cases and I'm always on the lookout for something that improves upon the others. Personally, I'm not a fan of this material, although it is soft and very durable. Overall, the Belkin Pocket Sleeve is a good four stars.

First, I got the blue one, which is a nice color. It's a bit bright, but is a pleasant color. The padding is adequate and just enough for most protection without being too thick. It fits the SP3 fairly well, although with the keyboard on it's a little tight. That's the case with move sleeves and cases I have used.

Second, the sleeve provides a zippered pocket and stylus loop. It's nice to see that they actually did think about the stylus, that's something a lot of competitors have left out. The pocket is enough store either the stylus as well, or a slim mouse, pen, and other accessories.

Overall, the Belkin Pocket Sleeve is a solid sleeve. It provides protection and storage without being bulky. While my personal preference is leather or something besides neoprene, this sleeve is still a solid buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality fabric, nice "hotel" like feel, June 21, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Zenna Home Luxury Hotel Waffle Weave Shower Curtain is a nice for just about any bathroom. It's very similar to what you would find in many hotels, spas, etc. The material is really nice, it's soft and durable.

Personally, I've never liked combined curtains and liners, so I am using this with an additional liner. The fabric of this item is really nice and I'd consider it be more of a curtain. Like others, it might be questionable if it's truly a waffle weave and instead just a pattern. But I think it's nice, durable, and has an elegant touch.

The length and width are standard, and it hangs nicely. It wasn't too wrinkled out of the package. If you have seen these in a hotel, you'll likely know that they do soak up water (again, I'm using it more as a curtain with another liner behind it). Overall, though, it's easily a four star item. Possibly five stars. You will thoroughly enjoy the fabric, design, and overall addition to your décor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great design, fits almost any decor, June 21, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Upon opening the packaging my first response was wow, these look really great. The design looks great (refined, subtle, and can likely match most decors) and they appear to be very well made. There are three different colors/shades and each has a decorative strip along the bottom.

These look great laying around, hanging on an oven handle, or hanging up on a wall/elsewhere (there is a nifty strap on each towel on one corner that allows you to easily hang them on a hook). Design, is easily five stars. I gave it four stars, because they are not very absorbent. While they are great for general use, if you are drying more than a few dishes they won't soak up as much water as a really thick towel. With that said, I'd definitely recommend these and will likely get more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, strong, May 31, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Urban Armor Gear's Microsoft Surface 3 Composite Case is a good option for those looking for extended, tough protection for their Surface 3. If you need general protection, I would not necessarily recommend it. This is certainly meant for those that are drop prone or need the Surface in the field or other special needs. However, it's a good fit and they took great care in making sure it accommodated the Surface 3.

As stated, for those that need it, this is a great option. It's a bit bulky, but that is where the protection is coming from. The corner protection is very good and thick. There is an integrated spot for the stylus, which is awesome. There's also a kickstand to take the place of the original Surface 3 kickstand (some cases work around the original kickstand). The kickstand is stiff, so hopefully it will stand the test of time, but it seems to work very well. Use of the screen isn't really interrupted and you can still use the side swipes of Windows 8.

Overall, I'm fairly pleased. Good for field use and other potential use cases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good coverage and speed, May 31, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Netgear AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender works very well, helping to eliminate dead spots in the home and extend coverage. Not only was coverage very good, but speed was great as well. Installation/configuration was fairly simple and the overall design is on par with other similar units.

Upon opening the box, you can have this configured fairly quick. If you have WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) that will be the quickest and easiest option for you. However, you can setup with the additional Netgear instructions fairly easily if you need to. Within 5-10 minutes max, you should be good to go. The device does not cover up the second plug on your outlet, so you can still use it for whatever you need. The antennas are not really in the way either. The device is somewhat thick (although it's about equal to other devices in this category that I have used), so you may be able to back furniture right up to it, but it's no worse than a plug sticking out.

I installed this about 30-35 linear feet (different floor though) from my router. It's providing much better coverage in my home where it was weak in two corners. The speed is very comparable to what it was before this device. So it's providing good coverage with no speed noticeable speed reduction. There is a nifty Analytics App, but unfortunately it's not available on all platforms. Overall, this is typical Netgear quality and works very well out of the box.


Hefty Drawstring Multipurpose Bags, 30 Gallon, 10 Count

4.0 out of 5 stars Tough and strong, May 26, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Hefty's Extra Strong Drawstring Multipurpose Trash Bags are thicker and stronger than normal. They can serve many purposes and although the extra strength and thickness is noticeable, I'm not sure I would have these bags as my go-to. I tend to go for normal trash bags or ultra strength (contractor) for big jobs outside.

The extra strong bags offer a nice go between, though. They are suitable for tougher cleanup jobs inside or for general storage. They don't tear very easily, unless the objects are very sharp or have hard corners. Things that would normally tear a standard trash bag, like cardboard don't really penetrate the extra strong bags.

It's nice to keep a box of these around when you need them if it's worth the extra cost to you. Personally, I prefer using standard bags or contractor bags when the job really calls for it. However, these bags are stronger and thicker than your standard trash bags.


Starburst Mini's Fav Reds, 8 Ounce (Pack of 8)
Starburst Mini's Fav Reds, 8 Ounce (Pack of 8)
Price: $24.78

5.0 out of 5 stars Great flavor, fresh, May 26, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It's hard to deny the greatness of the Starburst FaveReds flavors: watermelon, cherry, strawberry, and fruit punch. The only way to make them better is to have them already unwrapped. The flavors are spot on, nothing tastes different, but these Starburst minis were very fresh. They are probably about half the size of normal Starburst candies.

Upon initially opening the package, very few of the candies were stuck together. With time some more might stick, but like I said they were very fresh. Best of all, they don't stick in your hand either. The only problem with Starburst minis is that you can eat way too many. But I guess that's a problem we'll have to solve individually. :)
