4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but expensive, quality cable, June 24, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is something weird with the pricing of this cable version when the 6inch model costs more than the 4ft model. On the other hand, this is a quality cable, I tested it and it works with iPhones 5S, 6 and 6Plus without any hint of trouble. I like the fact that the gold model matches very well with the gold iPhone models - the 6inch version is very useful to use with an external battery pack in keeping cable clutter to a minimum in your pocket. The cable is much more solid looking and feeling than the standard iPhone cables, yet it still fits and works well with all the very skinny and tight cases I found on the various iPhone models in my home. I like it because it is a quality cable, but pricing wise it is not a great value - this is closer to Monster Cable style pricing.


Dreft Stage 2 Active Baby Liquid Detergent, Original Fresh, 50 Fluid Ounce

3.0 out of 5 stars A concentrated version of the same Dreft, June 24, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Once upon a time there used to be just one version of Dreft and that is what we used for the baby until he could start crawling, and then we switched to regular and much cheaper detergents. This Stage 2 formula I think is an attempt to capture that market of people who are quick to switch to regular detergents for toddler laundry needs. This claims to be better on food stains, but I am not sure what the reference for "better" is - it certainly doesn't appear to be making a noticeable difference vs the regular Dreft detergent; at any rate nowhere near close to results one can get from Tide Ultra or other top rated products. This version appears to be more concentrated than regular Dreft, as the doses are much smaller for a regular load of laundry. I found the scent to be pretty much the same diaper clean scent, only more powerful; no matter where you have the laundry room in your house, the whole house will know when you do a load of this. I know it is hard to evaluate a detergent effectiveness objectively, but for me this one doesn't stand out either in results or value; a middling performance at premium prices make for a tough sell.

2.0 out of 5 stars does not last long in the hands of kids, June 16, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Kind of poor quality or poorly made; the on/off button doesn't work smoothly and my kid has to struggle a big to push it to turn it on or off. Even more, while doing that he managed to get it broken inide a quick 2 days of play. Now the button won't do anything and it seems stuck on "on".

3.0 out of 5 stars Low power magnification; scratches easily, June 16, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is cool to have a magnifying glass, however for a toy designed for kids and the way kids abuse toys this scratches too easily. The magnification power is also kind of weak - kids prefer immediate big effects and the 4x magnification max afforded by this is not very satisfying to my first grader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mount for slim NVR, June 16, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I used this mount for a slim (2" thick) NVR recorder and it works out great. The pictures are always showing the brackets with some device being held, so naturally I expected to get quite a bit of heft and metal in the package when I ordered. When it arrived it was very compactly packed, to the point where I had to check that all six bracket parts are included in the shrink plastic. The assembly is very easy, the mounting was simple and if you happen to find a stud for one or two of the mounting holes then you can hang quite a bit of weight on this. This is a great design because it allows the units to circulate air and ventilate according to their specs. In all I am hanging about 16lbs from this bracket (NVR, power brick switch and power brick) and I don't have the slightest worry about having my equipment stick to the wall like I installed it for the long run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great format for early readers, June 12, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love the format of these books. They are very easy to handle by the first graders, the text is a very abridged and simplified version of the real tale, but it works out right for the beginner level. The book has a total of about 40 pages, one page half text in larger print and a picture page, making it easy for the kids to follow the story along. It is a great format and a great choice for building the kids' first book collection.The fairy tales are a good collection for the ones kids need to know in first grade, but I would recommend getting additional volumes from this collection - my kids love reading and being read to from these books
