5.0 out of 5 stars Super fast, easily installed wireless adapter for your desktop!, January 24, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Excellent!!! I installed this without issue, and have LIGHTNING fast connection now to my router. Easy install if you are comfortable opening up your PC and dropping a card in. I have been using USB wireless adapters on my desktop system and there is just no comparison. This connection feels much quicker (and ARE as judged by Speedtest.net), so by all means, get it if you feel comfortable with it! This is a new product and the firmware/software combo appears to be well developed. There is no update, as of this review, at the TP-Link website. Currently, I am using a Trendnet AC1750 router (TEW-81). Connection at the 5G band is lightning, at 2.4, it is lightning up, molasses down... Not sure what that is about, so maybe be cautious if you have a 2.4G router. Or it could be I need to reset my router, or...

Highly recommended, at least based on 3 hours of usage...

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent robe, durable?, January 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Incredible nice robe. Beautiful color, and interesting weave, not your traditional terry robe. The organic cotton is a plus. My wife loves it. I am unsure of the durability of the robe, already after about 2 weeks of use, the hanger loop has separated from the robe. Should not happen so quickly on a new and fairly pricey item.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but may not work well in all conditions., January 20, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a very nice modern-looking shower caddy. It doesn't look cheap like most do, and the brushed metal look is really striking. Rest assured no rust here as it is made from aluminum, so it is lighter than you would think. It is VERY large (you should see the size of the box it arrived in, I thought a dorm fridge was arriving!!!). The caddy holds a ton of stuff, and has smartly designed nooks to hang razors, and wash cloths. I really like the caddy, but had some trouble mounting it and am unsure if it will stay mounted in normal use (this shower does not get a lot of use). I mounted it in a shower stall with a short arm, which seems to cause problems with this caddy, it does not feel secure and the supplied suction cups do not stick to the tile at all. Also I had to remove the handheld shower head/hose and put a more typical shower head in for it to sit correctly, it will not worked with a handheld shower and short arm.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but claims unwarranted to this user., January 20, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This $72 wrinkle cream is quite nice. It is very expensive, and arrives in an unintuitive pump container. Once you figure out how to use it, it works great, until it breaks, which mine did about 1/3 of the way through the jar. The cream is thick and is easy to apply. It has an odd odor, not sure where to place it really. The cream has had no effect on facial wrinkles that I can perceive, but does a good job moisturizing and lasts a long time. Worth the money? Not to this reviewer...

3.0 out of 5 stars One cat likes, the other, not so much..., January 15, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We get a mixed review here on this premium (ultra premium!) cat food. I have two cats, one will eat anything and likes this, the other less interested in food overall. The second cat does not eat this. No idea why. She likes her Orijen, and I guess we'll stick with that! Like most cat foods, your cat will tell you if they like. As a premium food, there is a lot to like: 34% protein, no grains, small round kibble. It is light colored so when your cats inevitably throw it up is it less likely to stain. In comparison to Orijen, the recommended feeding amounts are higher, which means you will go through it more quickly. I assume the calorie counts are different (Orijen has more protein, FWIW). So, if you are looking for a good cat food, give it a try!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sampler with some party bonuses!, January 3, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Some outstanding chocolate here, but that is not all. There are four kinds of chocolate samples (squares) ranging from milk to dark. The milk chocolate in this mix is particularly interesting giving its relatively high cacao content, There are a couple of bonuses here in term of included printed material. A history of Scharffen Berger, and a wine pairing guide, which could make for a wonderful party for two, or more! Enjoy :)!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good tasting snack bar, December 28, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is a lot to like about SoyJoy bars. They are different, for one, from a typical cereal bar, or for that matter a high protein bar. They pack a lot of taste into a small bar. It is almost a fruitcake like consistency, which may be a turn-off for some. It is more dense than a typical cereal bar, more chewy/soft than a granola bar. It is not a low carb product (18g), but has more protein (4g) and fiber (2g; I'd have hoped for more!) than your typical cereal bar. Fat content is relatively low at 5g with 2g saturated. This seems an in-between product: not like a cereal bar, and not like a mega protein bar. It tastes good, and its nutritionals may meet your needs! I particularly like this cranberry version of the bar as the fruit give it a less sweet taste (i.e. greater tartness) than other versions (e.g. blueberry). Very nice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, user freindly video editor, December 26, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This latest version of Pinnacle Studio is a wonderful video-editing tool. It takes in a wife variety of video inputs and allows you creativity in how you can combine and edit them, and output them to a wide variety of formats. In contrast to past versions, this version has support for 4K, is fast(er), and has more presets that you might ever even imagine using. It is fun to play around with the options, easy to be creative, and supports a vast array of creative editing options. Highly reccomended!

4.0 out of 5 stars HIgh quality peghooks!, December 24, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A good selection of peghooks. High quality! In fact the gauge of the hooks is larger than the ones I have and tough to get into the holes of the pegboard I have installed. I need to wide the holes prior to use, but they fit in sturdily. Just a bit more work...


Remington Products Lithium Powered Rotary Shaver, Gone Hunting, XR1340OUTD

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good shaver, December 22, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have been using electric shavers for many years now. I have used some of the top shavers from Braun, Panasonic, and Norelco (Phillips) so was eager to try this latest offering from Remington, my first ever. The Remington looks like a Norelco clone, and feels like one in the hand. I have never been a big fan of the rotary shaver model. My Norelco sits in my office as an emergency tool and my Panasonic is my everyday shaver. In terms of build quality, the Remington seems a step or two below the Norelco, and has real problems around my chin. I have used the Remington shaver for about 2-3 weeks now, and in terms of performance, I would rate it about the same as the Norelco, though with less whisker-pull (a HUGE plus!!!). It is a very comfortable shaver to use. However, the Remington, like the Norelco, just does not get as close as a Panasonic, in fact when finished with the Remington, I now use my Panasonic to finish the job. The total package is nice, though. The shaver comes with pretty nice and usable shaving kit bag. The shaver also comes with a charging stand, which is nice when at home, but kind of pain to have to bring on the road! You can only charge the shave through the stand. Also, like many electric shavers, and rotary models in particular, the pop-up trimmer is narrow and pain to use. The one thing I really like about rotary shavers like this Remington Model is sound, they are so quiet compared to foil shavers (Braun, Panasonic)! In my opinion, the Camo finish makes it look weird, no cool, not sure if any of the other finishes would be better...

Note the experiences with electric shavers truly vary from person to person, so your experience may very well differ from mine. In any case, remember to not judge and electric shaver after one shave, especially if you are used to blade and cream/gel shaving - it can take a few weeks for your face to get used to the new approach.

(comparison shavers referenced: Norelco Spectra 8894XL and Panasonic ESLV61)
