Decent set of cables at a very affordable price. No complaints. These go on and off easily compared to other Monster Cables with the ultra tight turbine cut terminations.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too little for too much, March 26, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Not a great lamp. Too big for a desk, this is more suitable to a large end table in a bedroom.

Control panel reacts well to the touch. However, the color / temperature of the light used is not clearly marked and it is difficult to distinguish them apart. Obviously the color / temp for all 3 settings is different but there is no indication on the control panel that informs the user as to which mode is currently in use.

I like the adjustability, for the most part. Unfortunately the lamp cannot rotate 180 degrees with in the base and the lamp cannot be extended to be 100% vertical.

A little more research on my part and I would have gone with a different lamp, especially at this price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, didn't work for us though., March 22, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We set this product up, as directed, until the exterminators could come out.

It looks like a great idea but it didn't do anything for us in our situation. We didn't catch any bed bugs with this product.

I'm not saying that it doesn't work, I'm saying that it didn't work for us when we were dealing with an infestation.

Call the professional exterminators immediately if you find that you have bedbugs. The longer you wait, the worse the problem will get. One female can lay up to 100 eggs at a time. Do the math. They can also live for up to 100 days without food, so don't think tat sealing up your stuff tight will get them to starve to death. They are industrious little things and they require treatment by professionals - sometimes more than once.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother with this product, March 22, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If you have issues with bed bugs, hire an exterminator and avoid this product.

Before the professionals come out, they send you an email with explicit instructions on how to prepare to have your living space for their services.

One of the first things they say is not to use any other form of commercially available treatment before they treat the situation.

In order for this product to work, you have to make direct contact with the bed bugs. Good luck with that. They're small and they're very good at hiding. They don't usually come out until you are asleep.

Do some research and you will see that a bed bug infestation requires immediate treatment by the professionals . They are very difficult to kill and they are good at traveling to your neighbors to infest them as well.


Head & Shoulders  Instant Oil Control Dandruff Shampoo, 22.5 Fluid Ounce

3.0 out of 5 stars Essence of mango?, March 22, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Head & Shoulders does it again.

"Its formulated with mango and citrus essence" yet there is no mango in it. This shampoo is clearly labeled as Mango, so this is misleading. I guess that the term "essence" can mean anything.

All dandruff shampoos contain the same active ingredient to treat dandruff, so I'd just buy the best value for your money when shopping for this type of shampoo.

Make sure to leave it in your hair for several minutes, as indicated in the instructions, before rinsing it out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Essence of Coconut?, March 22, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
All of the Dandruff shampoos contain the same active ingredient to treat dandruff, specifically.

They vary in the rest of their ingredients, respectively.

"essence of coconut?" There is no coconut in this shampoo. I have no idea why this bottle shows a coconut on the front label. Maybe someone at Head & Shoulders was thinking about coconuts when they made the shampoo? Or designed the label?

Aside from missing the connection between what's on the bottle and what's in the bottle, the shampoo does a good job at getting my hair clean.

It is important to note that they recommend leaving the shampoo on for several minutes in order for it to be effective. So, don't lather and rinse right away. Let it sit up there and work for a while before washing it off.

Also, my bottle showed up with shampoo on the outside of it before I ever opened it. No vine bar code sticker was attached to the bottle either. Weird.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Love this product from purell.

It was easy to assemble and it was easy to mount on the wall. Easy to use, just push the bar at the bottom and out comes the perfect size drop of hand sanitizer.

We were able to mount it in a high traffic area where it gets a lot of use.

I would definitely recommend this to a friend.


Fino Pour Over Coffee and Tea Kettle, 4 1/4-Cup

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Fino Pour Over Coffee and Tea Kettle turned yellow on the most visible portions of the kettle, that being the sides and the top. The bottom, both inside and out, are a rainbow of colors - most notably purples & yellows - that look awful.

I had no issues with this kettle after purchasing it in December of 2013 until now, in March of 2015, when it turned all these different colors in one morning.

Supposedly, the yellow color is due to high heat being used with the stainless steel of the kettle. I boil my water the same way everyday so I don't understand why, after all this time, it would go and change colors on me.

I tried a variety of methods to try and return the kettle to its former color and shine, all to no avail.

I am very disappointed in this product and I am very hesitant to recommend that anyone purchase this kettle.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Excellent design. Very easy to use and reasonably priced. These look good and the R & L are clearly marked. They fit well and they're secure once connected to the terminals / binding posts on the back of the speakers.

Works best with 16 AWG or 14 AWG. 12 AWG or 10 AWG is too thick.
