5.0 out of 5 stars Great upgrade for older PCI and USB Wi-Fi adapters, May 4, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
TP-LINK Archer T9E AC1900 Dual Band Wireless PCI Express Adapter is a very fast Wi-Fi Adapter. It is 3 times faster than the wireless N speed. This TP-LINK adapter is easy to install (Driver CD included) and have strong signal (the 3 antennas surely helps). More importantly it stays connected to the router better than my older PCI Wi-Fi Adapters and USB Wi-Fi Adapters. We all know that the internet upload/download speed is only as fast as your internet provider speed, so if your internet speed feels slow it might be your internet provider and not your Wi-Fi adapters fault. Having said that local file transfers will be way faster with this AC 1900 5Ghz adapter vs the wireless N. This AC 1900 Dual Band Wi-Fi adapter is great for streaming videos, playing games, and transferring large files within your local network. If you are using your desktop mainly for browsing the web only, this high speed AC1900 Wi-Fi adapter might be an overkill and you should be fine with the slower and lower priced wireless N adapter. If you currently having issues of getting your Wi-Fi connection dropped quite often, you can either get a better router with stronger/more antennas or try to upgrade your Wi-Fi card with this AC1900 Wi-Fi adapter which has 3 strong antennas.


Aduro AquaSound WSP40 Waterproof Shower Bluetooth Portable Speaker with Stand and Suction Cup (Black/Pink)

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than those small round shower speakers, May 4, 2015
Aduro AquaSound WSP40 Bluetooth Portable Speaker is one of the better waterproof/shower speaker out there. Many other shower speakers (the small round ones) are very underpowered and often get muffled by the sound of the water from the shower. This is still a small speaker so expectation on the bass power should be tempered (it's nowhere as good as the jawbone jambox). Pairing this speaker with iPhone is fast and easy. This Aduro speaker has dedicated buttons for volume up/down and rewind/fast forward which is nice where many other speakers combined the button and one have to hold longer vs quick press. The battery last a long time (which I really appreciate) and the suction cup works like a champ. I was worried that it might drop the speaker and it's been many days and it is still securely attached. The suction cup is also removeable so you can carry this speaker for travel. Thanks Aduro for sending this sample product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very bright solar powered LED light with replaceable rechargeable batteries, April 30, 2015
InnoGear® 850 Lumens Bright 48 LED is a very bright solar powered LED light which will activate automatically when the surrounding gets dark. It also has motion sensor so that it can turn on when it detect movement. There is 3 mode to this light (4 modes if you counted off mode): Always on with half the light power, Dim and Full power when it detect movement, Off and Full power when it detect movement. This is one the brightest solar powered/charged LED that I have seen so far which is getting to the point that it is too bright to stare directly at it (at full power), which I do appreciate. It will be nice if it has a remote to change the mode without having to press the button on this lamp (you might need a ladder/chair if you install this lamp high enough). Also it will be nice if there is a mode to turn this LED on regardless it is dark enough or not in case you can use the additional light (maybe they want to avoid charging the battery and using it at the same time). Thanks InnoGear for sending me this sample product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very smart and fast charger, April 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Foxnovo F-4S 4-Slots Intelligent Battery Charger is a smart charger indeed. First, this charger will charge most of the standard size batteries out there such as A, AA, AAA, C, SC and works for Li-ion, Ni-MH, and Ni-CD type batteries. Secondly, it will charge the batteries really fast and will let you know when the charging is done (with quite a loud beep). Third, the LCD will tell how many mAH is being pumped into the battery and what the current volt capacity of the battery (which will tell you if your battery is still full or needs charging). The mAH info will be useful to know whether it's time to replace with a new battery - i.e. if you charge your battery from empty to full and the mAH power charged is nowhere near the max capacity of the battery. You can also tell the max capacity / how good your battery is (whether it needs to be replaced instead of just charging it) with the battery capacity testing capability. This mode will take a while to complete as it will need to charge the battery all the way up, and then when it's full, it will discharge the power all the way down, and then when it's empty it will charge it all the way again to full. I am not sure why they don't just discharge all the way down and then charge it all the way up and record how much power is being pumped into the battery and save a step. One interesting thing I notice is that even after the battery is full, when I plug those fully charged back into the charger right away, it will charge for some more time (like for another 50-200 mAH), instead of showing that it's full right away and not add any more charge. I am guessing the measurement is not always 100% accurate or maybe it is trying to be safe and not to risk overcharging so it might stop right before it is very full (just like filing up gas when the auto fill stops, you still have more space in the tank and fill it up some more). It's my favorite charger right now (vs my existing duracell and energizer chargers) and I hope this charger will last a long time. If the beep sound is too loud for you, please refer to a few other reviewers on how to disable it or contact Foxnovo directly. Thanks Foxnovo for sending me this sample product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Could be brighter but still great for camping or emergency light, April 25, 2015
LE® LED Solar Lantern is a good lantern. It is light and feels solid. It is great for camping or emergency light. This lantern can be recharged by sun/light which makes this very useful when you are off the grid. It has two light power setting and the bottom part can be used as a cup (this lantern is not waterproof however so wipe the cup dry after use. If you use different color water will make this lantern multiple color (I happen to test the cup with orange gatorade and when I turn on the latern the light reflected is orange color). This lantern can also be charged through micro-USB which is very useful when you need to recharge fast (micro-USB charging is faster than solar charging and also you can use external battery packs to charge with the micro-USB connection). A few things that can be improved: The LED can be brighter (it's currently similar with the iPhone LED). The cup is currently to be twisted the other way (clockwise) to open. The 2 brightness setting could be 25% and 100%, or 50% and 100% (currently it's like 90% and 100%). The handle is currently hard to adjust (need to pull the side a bit before adjusting the handle from the lowest position otherwise I think the plastic thread might bend/break if you just force to adjust the handle). Thanks Lighting EVER for sending me this sample product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright LED light bulb and low power consumption, April 25, 2015
LE® 9.5W Dimmable A19 E26 LED Light Bulbs is a great replacement for CFL bulb. This LED light bulb is brighter than the equivalent CFL bulb. The light color of this bulb is warm white (2700K) so it is not super white but not yellow either (somewhere in between). This LED bulb is also dimmable and is expected to last 50,000 hours (27 years on 5 hours average per day usage). Also there no burn-in (and degradation in the light intensity and quality) with this LED bulb which usually happens with CFL after using them for a while. As the price for LED bulbs starts to come down, I will be looking into replacing all my light bulbs with LED bulbs. Thanks Lighting EVER for sending me this sample product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not really 100-percent waterproof. More like water repellent., April 19, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Perlux Hypoallergenic Tencel 100-Percent Waterproof Mattress Protector is a decent mattress protector. it is soft to touch and it is supposed to inhibit the growth of bacteria (and reduce allergen) and the material is also breathable. Having said that if you getting this mainly for its waterproofing feature, I think you will be dissapointed, as my waterproof feature test (spilling a glass of water) did get this mattress protector wet (along with the bed and bedsheet underneath this mattress protector). I can see that initially the water is floating on top of this mattress protector but after a few seconds if you don't wipe the water, it will slowly soak into the material of this mattress protector. I personally will not call this product 100-percent waterproof, probably water repellent at best. Also the product descriptions mentioned that this mattress protector is made from Tencel fiber that is "softer than silk, absorb 50% more moisture than cotton and provide a material that is cooler than linen". So basically it does absorb moisture which I found sort of conflicting with the term waterproof (I would expect 100-percent waterproof something like a rain coat or an umbrella).

5.0 out of 5 stars Convert your home sound system to bluetooth enabled, April 17, 2015
BlueGATE RCV HD Home Bluetooth aptX Audio Receiver is a really cool product. This bluetooth receiver will convert your non-bluetooth speaker sound systems to bluetooth enabled. It has 4 different cable connection options from this receiver to your sound system (optical, coaxial, RCA and 3.5mm cable which are all included). This bluetooth receiver works really well and the installation is very simple. It is powered by an AC adapter (no battery option). I have used several bluetooth receivers and most of them are underpowered (i.e. volume is not as loud as using wired input), however this BluGATE is more powerful than those other bluetooth receivers that I have used, and the sound quality is also good. Thanks BlueGATE for sending me this sample.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good sound and noise isolation, April 1, 2015
Prefeco QCY Bluetooth Headset is a solid all around bluetooth wireless headphones. Sound power and bass power are good. Noise isolation is also good. It is easy and quick to pair/setup. It also comes with different size of ear tips which is nice since everyone have different ear size (if you use the wrong tip size it will keep popping out out of your ears). This headphone does look a bit bulky but since it is very light, I quickly forget about that. Good headphones for running/exercising. It charges with standard micro-usb cable (included). Thanks Prefeco for sending this product.
