Jensen B773385 Frameless Horizon Single-Door Recessed Medicine Cabinet
Jensen B773385 Frameless Horizon Single-Door Recessed Medicine Cabinet
Price: $89.51
6 used & new from $73.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended - excellent product!, March 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Excellent product

We tried to use some Foremost Heartland Oak Bathroom medicine cabinets for a remodeled bathroom, but had terrible quality issues with the products and delivery over a 2 1/2 month period.

We opted instead for two of the Jensen products and are very pleased. The mirrored doors have a beveled edge that adds to the appearance. The doors can be hung to face either direction, the shelves are adjustable and the instillation easy.

The packaging from the manufacturer was exceptional, especially compared to the Foremost experience. Amazon was supportive as usual

Highly recommended - excellent product!

2.0 out of 5 stars Mixed reaction - buyer beware!, March 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Mixed reaction

We redecorated the master bath and needed two units. After ordering, returning, re-ordering a total of 5 units for the 2 we needed to match each other, we gave up.

Some were broken in the frame, in the mirror, or the door. While one was OK, no two matched. We waited 2 1/2 weeks for each re-order for something supposed to be on Prime (2 days!) , and while Amazon assisted in returns, the experience was very challenging.

We went with two Jensen units from Amazon and were pleased with those.

We do not recommend the Heartland products.

Gaiam Athletic Yoga Series maxTowel Xtra-Large Yoga Mat Towel
Gaiam Athletic Yoga Series maxTowel Xtra-Large Yoga Mat Towel
Price: $29.98

4.0 out of 5 stars A good product, but I suggest reading all of the reviews in making a decision for what meets your needs best., March 24, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I just completed a review on the Athletec Sports Ultra Absorbent Yoga Towel Set, which has a number of similarities with this product.

Both are very good products, absorbent, well made and better than most microfiber products we have used. While the Gaiam towel is initially almost fluffy, it also has the tendency to have a feeling like Velcro and it can stick to your hands or feet.

This is a much larger than normal yoga or gym towels (size of this towel is 30"W x 84"L.), which is a plus The gray color is neutral and seems to hold up in washes (according to other reviewers, who have washed theirs more than we have.)

The descriptor says this towel was designed for hot yoga and it is supposed to absorb sweat better than a standard cotton towel, but the feel of this product to me was not as comfortable as the Atheletec set mentioned above.

A good product, but I suggest reading all of the reviews in making a decision for what meets your needs best. A $30 price tag seems to be in the mid-price range and personal preferences will be the deciding factor.

Athletec Sports Ultra Absorbent Yoga Towel Set, Blue
Athletec Sports Ultra Absorbent Yoga Towel Set, Blue
Price: $25.71

5.0 out of 5 stars A first-rate mat & hand towel set ‚€“ good value!, March 24, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a good-looking set of towels that are absorbent, soft and appear to be well made. It is of good quality and can be used (one imagines) at both traditional organized yoga classes or at home workouts. The towels’ outer binding stitching is neatly designed and there are no loose ends.

The larger big towel is excellent for use on carpet. It does not curl at the ends or bunch. It is light in weight and easily fits into a gym bag. The smaller face towel is a practical size to drape around the neck for easy neck and face wipes. The towels help keep one’s hands dry

While we have all had different experiences with microfiber towels content, the manufacturer descriptors say that the 100% polyester is soft to touch and does not feel like traditional microfiber as it does not scratch against the skin. The descriptor says it is ultra absorbent, that it is machine washable and that it will hold up for many wash/dry cycles.

This is a first-rate mat & hand towel set – good value!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another example of consistent, quality office products by Avery, March 12, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Avery consistently creates and manufacturers quality office products and these dividers are another example. They have taken a commodity type product and made it just a little better by locating the holes at the top. This uncomplicated variation allows one to be better organized, as you now have access to more of the page than compared with standard three hold punch.

They are easy to write on, sturdy and fit properly in hanging folders. The (presumed) strong copper reinforced holes allow for better tear resistance, and they have plastic on the back as well as the tabs. These tabs allow one to divide into time slots, categories or for whatever use one has and the index tabs are an extra plus.

These are not very thick, but perform well . Highly recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Split review here - 1 GREAT and 1 DEAD???, March 11, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Split review here, as we bought two for use in storage sheds.

We live in Arizona which has plenty of sun, yet one of the two units is 85% DEAD, while the other works well.

We wish we had realized the issue prior to the return date, but we missed it. At $75 for the set, this is not an inexpensive item and we are a bit disappointed.

The other four we have bought - different manufacturers - are all fine.

Mead File Folders, Letter Size, 1/3-Cut Tab, Manila, 50 per Box (25708)
Price: $9.41

5.0 out of 5 stars These Mead folders meet the need., March 8, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
In these days when we are all balancing high tech, the cloud, back-up files and more with the need for some hard copies of certain documents, these Mead folders meet the need.

Face it- file folders are basically a commodity item. They need to be durable, easy to use, fit into storage areas of different sizes and be accessible via tabs or written tags.

I am puzzled by some other reviewers who have critiqued these folders. I have found the ones we received to be strong, easy to use and at under $10 for 50, a value. Some criticized the “color” of the folders, but as they can be inserted into hanging folders of any color, this does not seem to be an area worth discussion.

Recommended Highly!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction on how to work mindfulness and meditation into our lives., March 8, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book offers a great introduction on how to work mindfulness and meditation into our lives. It offers ideas on being more productive, less stressed on our way to find our work life equilibrium.

As someone reads the two books a week, I find my attention span needs to be engaged merely quickly for me to enjoy and appreciate it. I found this an interesting book by a business writer (New York, Times, Forbes, Financial Times, etc. who has practiced meditation for more than ten years.

The book has 10 chapters and the titles include topics as “the science of sitting”, “ less stressed”, “more focused”, the space to lead”, “socially responsible’’ and more.

Author David Gelles is well traveled and shares anecdotal evidence of experiences he has done and seen from a rising number of professionals who have incorporated mindfulness into their place of work.

There are two pages of “Instructions” that offer very practical, common sense ideas on ways to actually begin Mindful Meditation. There are an additional six pages of resources by topic that usually refer to web sites. While I have not accessed all of the web sites yet, the ones I have viewed make sense.

This is worth reading!

SABRE Motion Sensor Alarm
SABRE Motion Sensor Alarm
Price: $19.68
23 used & new from $14.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to set up and use, adds security awareness & worth the very reasonable price!, March 8, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
In these days of unfortunately needing to pay more attention to the potential danger of uninvited intruders, this is a unexpectedly proficient alarm for under $20. For the cost, it is quite a value, especially for those who may usually be at home to hear the alarm or with neighbors.

It was easy to set up, provides good coverage and has either a loud chime or a VERY loud alarm. It does need 3 AAA batteries (not included)

The alarm and the optional chime are both loud, and each has a useful purpose. One should note that to change between the two sounds requires a screwdriver to access the battery compartment to slide the switch.

A button under the screwed-on cover directs you to create enter a 4 digit code, which you need to do according to the directions to activate. Instructions say the sensor has a 20 foot zone with approximate angles of 100 degrees horizontal and 70 degrees vertical, which should accommodate many areas.

Overall, this wireless motion sensing alarm is easy to set up and use, should add to some increased security awareness and is worth the very reasonable price.

Good value for a unit that offers both heat and cooling. We selected this for a Florida rental unit bedroom and it meets the needs well.

It is efficient, quiet and effectively meets the needs. Prompt shipping - a good LG product
