3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to fly - VERY short battery life - No video streaming, August 23, 2014
I've been wanting to get a remote quadcopter drone for awhile, but the high price of the AR took it out of the toy category for me. This one is priced at a level where I didn't feel like an adult buying an overpriced toy.

That said, I was disappointed.

First, the negatives. This thing is very hard to fly. The people in the online video must have been practicing for days or weeks. My first few flights lasted only seconds before crashing. This brings up the second problem. Battery life. It is terrible. Five minutes, maybe six. Then you are stuck on the charger for an hour and half. You can buy extra batteries, but they still need to be charged in the copter, so you can't fly and recharge at the same time. The camera is a terrible gimmic. It does NOT provide live streaming video to your phone. Heck, it doesn't take video at all. It takes 1990s era webcam quality photos that have to be transferred to your phone post-flight via the app in a procedure that only NASA could have come up with.

The wheels are pretty cool and I ended up spending most of my time driving on the floor and ceiling. Going up a wall was just as difficult as flying.

It takes a LOT of practice.

It is not loud.

I took it outside on a very still day and was able to get it to go about 50 feet away from me before it fell from the sky. (No damage though!) A small breeze (3knot?) came up and this thing was completely uncontrollable.

It uses a bluetooth connection, not wifi (like the AR does).

Admittedly, I need a lot more practice. My six year old could push the button to make it take off then immediately crashed each time she took the controls. My longest flight was probably four minutes - before the batteries died.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect size for two people for a good lunch or a few beers, August 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Perfect beach cooler. This is the perfect size to hold a six pack of beer and still have a little room for a sandwich or two. It is moderately insulated, but good enough to keep the ice cold for a few hours and the beer cool (not cold) all day. There is a nice hard plastic liner that comes out for cleaning and provides a waterproof bathtub for the melted ice. The bungee straps on top are fairly useless and could be replaced by a simple handle. The shoulder strap is nice when you need to carry a bunch of stuff. The front pocket is very thin, but doesn't intrude on the inside space. We keep our bottle opener in there.

This is one of the few smaller coolers that is tall enough for a standard glass beer bottle.

It would be a bit overkill for a single person lunch pail.

5.0 out of 5 stars May I call them dainty?, August 23, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These are cocktail napkins, not full size dinner napkins. They are well made, very thin, and . . . well . . . dainty. Maybe a little frilly. Tea? Crumpets? These are perfect. Good for when the queen comes to visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice matte finish and works well on plastic parts, August 21, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Great cleaner and spray bottle is easy to use. I used this on my dash - the plastic parts only - not the leather. It worked well to shine up my gauge cluster and my nav screen (yes - on the lcd). It also worked well on the door map pockets (which are some type of vinyl). I didn't use it on leather because I believe this will have a tendency to dry the leather.

On the plastic parts, it left them clean and without any tacky gloss or other undesirable traits. Just a nice matte finish.

The bottle itself is long and thin, which makes it easy to get into the hard to access areas (and not have a ton of overspray).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very high quality - great set of bands, August 21, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fantastic quality and great set of bands. This is really a high end set of resistance bands. No more sheets of rubber from the physical theropist. Each of the five bands has a quality clip at the end so you can attach handles or ankle wraps. There is also a piece that can go over a door so you can do pull downs, etc. It all fits back into a nice storage bag. The bands can easily be stacked to give up to about 75lbs of resistance - and the eyes on the handles are large enough that all of the bands can be clipped at once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great earrings, although be aware that they are fairly large = about the size of a penny., August 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My 6yo daughter loves them, although they are a bit large for her ears. They are about a half inch high. The posts are fine with a double backing. I note the complaints below about bent posts. Mine arrived just fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice comfortable fitness band you never have to take off - waterproof and non-rechargable battery, August 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Band itself is very comfortable and I really like the fact that it is waterproof with a battery that doesn't have to be recharged. The display itself means that I rarely actually pull out my phone to look at the app. The step tracking seems accurate (after spend an active day nearly step by step with my spouse who was wearing an up24.).

Sleep tracking seems to be a bit difficult to figure out. The red line takes some getting used to, but it is less annoying (good or bad?) than the vibration on my spouse's Up24.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice strong rack for lots of uses, August 17, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a very nice rack, but don't limit yourself to using it for ties and belts. It is 14.25" wide and is very strong. The included mounting screws are short, but can easily be replaced with longer screws for more hanging strength. The welds are quite good and the finish is clean. There are six short hooks (center) and six longer hooks (three on each side). The hooks are not easily bent with force. The chrome work is good, without pits.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice handle, but blunt edges mean you can't use this cleanly cut brownies, August 17, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The handle is very nice and comfortable to hold, but the spatula end itself is clear plastic with blunt edges. I didn't like the lack of a sharp-ish edge to cut the brownies. The edge is quite blunted so the brownies tend to crack rather than cut. The blunt edge also makes it somewhat difficult to get under the brownies to pick them off the tray. The spatula end is not flexible at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks and feels nice and high quality, August 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Works well and looks nice. The stoppers are very well designed. The top of the stoppers have a horizontal flap that you push to the side to release the pressure. The handle pump has a nice metallic feel. Operationally, it squeaks a bit while pumping and there is no way to know when you have pumped enough. I have another set where there is a clicking sound once you have a set amount of pressure.
