Belkin Cinema Stripe Folio Case with Stand for Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab Pro - 12.2 Inch (Black)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cover and stand for the 12.2-inch Samsung Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro tablets, July 28, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Having a large tablet device without a cover/stand is just not practical. Although most people don't need an armored case that can protect a tablet from perils such as dropping it on the ground or into the water, an elegant case that can be both a cover and a viewing/typing stand is essential.

The Belkin Cinema Stripe Folio is one such case. The tablet is installed securely in the case's hard shell frame with protective corners. The tablet won't become dislodged from the case inadvertently, although it can be separated from the case easily by bending one of the case corners.

What I like most about this case are the magnetic auto tablet on/off and magnetic cover closure mechanisms because they make using the tablet convenient and secure.

The stand can be adjusted to one of five viewing angles or one typing position.

I highly recommend this Belkin case for the 12.2-inch Samsung Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro tablets.


Moshi Stanza Duo (2-in-1 Dual Stylus and Pen) for Touchscreen Devices, Silver
Moshi Stanza Duo (2-in-1 Dual Stylus and Pen) for Touchscreen Devices, Silver
Price: $34.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Its size and weight is fine for me, July 23, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I use the Moshi Stanza Duo mainly as a touch screen stylus and secondarily a writing instrument. Having a diameter of 0.4 inch and weighing 0.3 ounce, its size and weight is fine for me. To use the pen, you twist the two-piece pen barrel and the pen tip will emerge while the pen clip will retract into the barrel. It is well-made but I deem it could be priced a little cheaper.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brush that helps to dry and curl long hair, July 23, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This brush is great for maintaing long, fine hair. The ceramic barrel quickly absorbs heat from hair dryer and helps dry long hair. Avoid skin contact with the barrel, as it is very hot.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great device combo that offer sight/sound plus breathing monitor of your baby, July 23, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Motorola MBP25 Wireless Video Baby Monitor and Binatone BabySense 5s Baby Movement Monitor are a great combination that allows parents to monitor the baby from a distance within the home.

The wireless video baby monitor allows you to see and hear the baby. You will also hear the alarm sound from the Binatone BabySense monitor if anything abnormal occurs. Sound transmission is two-way, so you can also talk to the baby.

The Baby Movement Monitor is a piece of amazing technology. The two pads that you place under the baby's mattress closely watch your baby's breathing and will send a signal to the monitor unit to make an alarm sound when the breathing movement stops or slows down.

This is a great combination to make many parents feel more at ease during the day and night.


PlayPad Pro for Amazon Fire TV
PlayPad Pro for Amazon Fire TV
Price: $19.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Costs half as much as Amazon's but also has fewer features, July 23, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Nyko PlayPad Pro is a basic game controller for the Amazon Fire TV. The main reason you will consider this instead of Amazon's version is price; it costs only half as much as the original.

It is powered by non-replaceable, built-in rechargeable batteries. The maker claims that you can play up to 25 hours before the batteries need recharging, but I found them seem to use some amount of charge while idle, so the actual time between charges may be much shorter.

Unlike the Amazon version, this controller does not have media control buttons, so you need to decide if this function is important to you.

This may be a good second game controller if you are tight on budget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well but best if your wireless router is nearby, June 29, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Netgear N300 is an USB adapter that gives your computer the ability to connect to your network and the Internet wirelessly.

You are buying this either because your notebook PC is too old to have one built in, or the internal one is broken.

It is best that the wireless router is in the same room as the computer. This is not the fault of the wireless adapter but that a tiny USB device just can't have a long antenna to send and receive signals. I am still able to connect even when I use the computer from other locations in the home. If you find inconsistent connection in a certain room, it means the router is too far away.

Because of the unobtrusive size, there is no need to remove it from the computer once it is setup.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keyboard and stand for the iPad mini and mini with Retina Display, June 28, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Belkin Fast Fit Bluetooth keyboard isn't really a case; it's more of a screen cover when the tablet and the keyboard are attached to each other through magnets built into the sides of the keyboard. Since this is really not a case, it won't protect the tablet against being bumped/dropped/scraped.

Because the iPad mini is "mini", Belkin has to omit some keys in order make the keyboard easier to type. If you have small hands, this keyboard may be alright.

The advantage of this keyboard is the slot just above the first row of keys which allows you to fit the keyboard horizontally or vertically and keep it there at a fixed angle securely.

This is the most space-saving keyboard, so it is ideal for use while you sit in a cramped airline seat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique keyboard case, June 28, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
In making this keyboard/stand/case "universal" for 7"/8" tablets, Belkin has a clever adjustable corners design so that different size products can fit snugly.

Although my Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is larger than 8 inches diagonally, this particular tablet's aspect ratio makes it possible (it's longer than typical 7-inch but not much wider).

Many reviewers deem the keyboard too small, the keys too tiny, but remember this is for 7 and 8 inch tablets. Touch typing using all ten fingers is not easy unless you have small hands.

The typing/viewing stand function is fine, as long as you are satisfied with two choices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent case for all three models of Sony RX100 (M1, M2, M3), June 23, 2014
This is the latest jacket (ever-ready) case for the RX100 series cameras. It is not made of real leather but the feel is pretty good.

The camera is secured to the bottom portion of the case at only ONE point - the tripod screw socket, so you would want to make sure that the fitting is tight.

The RX100M3 comes with a set of "strap adapters" that would allow you to tie the camera to the strap at TWO points (left and right of camera) and then to the case through the tripod socket. This is a safer way, but I don't know if earlier models of RX100 are provided with these strap adapters.

The top half of the case is attached to the bottom half using two buckles. To use the camera, you unbuckle either one so that the camera can be operated. Of course, you can also unbuckle both, but that means the top half is then completely separated from the bottom half of the case. In practice, you'd leave the two halves still attached so that you can take pictures using both hands for better steadiness and security.

With the camera LCD facing me, I like to unbuckle the right buckle instead of the left one, because it seems easier (you swing the case from the back to the front, whereas if you unbuckle the left buckle, you swing the case from the front to the back). This may seem hard to understand, but when you have the case in hand, you will quickly know the difference in ease of use.

I love the case because it is only slightly bigger than the camera itself and it can protect the camera until the moment you want to use it. It's quicker than having the camera in a bag and the whole camera/case is definitely less bulky. Be aware that the case will most likely NOT protect the camera if you drop it to the ground. You need to take care of the camera like an expensive computer or electronic gadget as you move about. Otherwise, I would suggest a padded case of some kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars The GBC Fusion 5000L is a high volume, 12-inch wide laminator that is trouble-free, June 22, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
By "high volume" the 5000L's specifications says it is capable of laminating 33 pouches in 10 minutes. The maximum document size is 11 X 17 inches, and the pouch thickness can be 3, 5, 7, and 10 mils (1 mil is 1/1,000 inch).

The laminator unit does not come with any laminating pouch.

Pouches of various thickness can easily be found on amazon.com, but many products seem to erroneously confuse thickness in "mil" as thickness in "mm". The correct unit for laminating pouch is "mil", not "mm".

If you follow the instructions exactly, laminating, even on the first try is trouble-free.

The sealed edge must be inserted first, and the contents of the pouch must be pushed against the sealed edge for best results.
