4.0 out of 5 stars A great fit for the budget, June 26, 2016
These are very basic light soft boxes that fits great for the budget. It comes with a pair of 150W daylight (5500K) CFL. They are very easy to set up. No instruction needed. Each has an in-line on and off rocker switch. The stands can be extended to more 6 feet high. You can not tilt them up or down but they can easily be swiveled left and right. The inside of the softbox is shiny chrome and can easily be covered with the white diffusers using Velcros on all 4 sides.

What I really don’t like is the length of the cord. It is only 6 feet long. You would have to use an extension cord before you can put them in the desired locations.

Overall, the construction is very basic but the included case is thick and quite impressive. For under 70 bucks (current price), this pair of light soft boxes is a very reasonable investment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice affordable set of ceramics, June 26, 2016
Not bad for a set of ceramic knives, complete with stand and peeler. We have been using ceramics for years now. They don't leave metallic taste on your food. They stay sharp for a long time. I was underwhelmed by my first experience with ceramic peelers because I didn't know how to use them properly. They are not good for thick skinned fruits like mangoes but they are excellent for peeling fruits and veggies with thin skins like carrots and potatoes. Good overall quality. The tag price of under twenty bucks is great deal too.

If you treat them good they will last for a long time. Do not use them to cut on top of ceramic plates. Yu can use them on meat as long as you avoid the bones. Do not place them together with metal utensils or they may chip.

4.0 out of 5 stars Portability, June 25, 2016
I have a few of the VR boxes starting from the humble Google cardboard to a more fancy scopes. I got interested to get my hand on this because it seems not as fragile as a cardboard but not as bulky as the fancier scopes. This works like an accordion and fold flat like a medium size cellphone. You can adjust the focus by the distance of the lens to the phone screen. I am using this on an iPhone6 which sits perfectly with the silicone adapter that came with it. You place your phone through the back of the scope. If you are using the iPhone6 plus, I guess you just have to place the phone directly on the VR box without the adapter. The straps attaches to the side. Just need a little extra push to snap the metal loops.

You can wear the device either way(up or down) as there is a small niche in the middle where you put the bridge of your nose. That is kinda cool except it is also my main gripe; it is not deep enough that is is a bit uncomfortable on my nose.

I would have rate it a star higher if it is more comfortable to wear, made with better material and more detailed construction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charm, June 25, 2016
A very charming leafy branch pendant. It is very pretty dainty. It looks bigger on the pic but I think the size is just perfect. The choice of colors for the Swarovski crystals is excellent. The biggest rock on the bottom dangles freely. The presentation and jewelry box is of better quality than other jewelry I have seen at this pricepoint.

4.0 out of 5 stars An attractive stylish hobo bag, June 25, 2016
Length:: 0:29 Mins

Looks like a very decent looking and quality snakeskin pattern bag. Nice detail on the design. The simple zipper tabs, the metal loops and buckles looks charming without having to be ornate. Smooth matching dark brown lining inside. It has multiple compartments and pockets inside and out. It is big enough for a portable compact umbrella or even an iPad.

Adjustable shoulder strap.

You may have to be careful using the bag for the first few days. The fabric that is in between the shiny snake sheds some very fine fibers/lint that are black. This can get to your clothes if you are wearing white or some other light colors.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Great quality trash bags. Puncture resistant and very stretchy, it can expand to accommodate extra capacity. The first thing you will notice is the flowery smell when you open each bag; this neutralizes any odor in the trash. Very strong, it can also withstand extra weight. The string is always convenient. for carrying and closing the bag.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works fine, just don't expect much with the speed., June 22, 2016
This is the second device of this kind that I tried. According to the specs, it can read and write at 80 MB using the USB 3.0 connector. The Lightning is 25 MB read and 20 MB write. S, there is a big difference in speed between the 2 connectors.

Packaging is very basic. There is no instruction included which is a big question mark. I think a manual, even a rudimentary short manual is important to be included. I have used one before and so I expected this has to work with an app. Anyway, once you plug this on your iPhone, it will prompt you that an app should be downloaded from the Appstore.

On the back of the box, it says that it will backup your photos and images. It would be nice if it can backup everything but this device is not for that particular purpose. I got into a snag during the test when I chose to backup all my contents. It stopped at 94% and I know it doesn't have enough memory to backup my camera roll. My iPhone has 64G and this device only has 16G which explains why. I was hoping it will give you a warning that it cannot continue as there is not enough memory. Instead, it just froze. So, to avoid corrupting the memory, I turned off the app first (by double clicking on my iPhone main button) and then swiping it up. I then removed the device and plugged it into a PC. Sure enough, there is no more space.

This device is useful for me for transferring files between my iPhone (or iPad) to a PC or even to my Macbook. Sometimes Airdrop doesn't work every time and so I use a device like this to transfer files. It is not as fast as I wish it to be but it gets the job done. I would have rate it 4 stars but it seems that the current tag of 60 bucks is a little steep for a mere 16G.

7800mAh Cute Cartoon Power Bank with Totoro Design

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for fans of Totoro - cute as a button, June 20, 2016
Totoro is such a big thing in our house. We are a fan of Miyazaki and my kids grew up watching his movies. The power bank came in a hard plastic case. It comes with a micro USB cable for charging and a sort manual. My daughter wants the figure to be as close to how it looks like in the movie but it is more of a more fundamental representation of the Totoro character. I think it is very cute, though. Despite a small misunderstanding with how it looks like, she still very much wants to keep it for her own backup charger for her iPad mini.

Like other power banks, it is very simple to use. Plug it to a PC or a wall USB adapter (faster way) to charge it. Then you can bring it anywhere for anytime emergency power. Just bring your own device cable. It has 2 USB ports, a 2.1A for tablets and 1A for cells. Just press the tail, actually it is a little knob to check how much juice power is left with the power bank. 7800 mAh should be able to charge your phone a couple of times and can extend the life of your iPad for a few more hours. Not the fastest charger around but it is OK.

4.0 out of 5 stars Covenience, June 20, 2016
This is such a unique product that really made me curious how it works. The idea is similar to jewelry ultrasonic cleaners. They utilize vibrations to help loosen dirt on garments, toys, fruits and other small items. The main advantage is extreme portability, multi-functionality and that you can use it on delicate clothes.

It is very easy to use. All you need is a USB power source like a USB phone charger or a portable battery pack. If you will be using it on garments, it is advisable to wrap the garments around the device for best results. Turn it on for about 30 minutes and you are done. You can see the dirt on the water after the process. Replace with clean water and rinse manually.

The obvious disadvantage is the size of the load. You can only use this with a few garments at a time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredible value, June 19, 2016
This is an incredible priced Lightning cable at 11 bucks for 3 pieces. The cables are covered with braided nylon which look and feel very sturdy. They don't charge only but also sync which is what a Lightning cable is supposed to do. I tried flipping the 8-pin end to see if it will still work and it does. The reason I am not giving this cables 5 star review is that it is not as fast as the original Apple cable. Even if your adapter is rated at 2.1A or 2.4A, you won't achieve the speed unless you also have a quality cable. I am only getting 0.79A at the most.
