5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent color and definition, November 17, 2015
This was a totally new device to me when it was offered for purposes of my review by the Amazon Seller. I am very glad that they did.

The device connects to your TV or monitor through HDMI, VGA or composite(AV), A technically savvy young lady at the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference connected the device to our systems, and it worked very well: colors very pure and excellent definition.

Package includes:
1 X HD Media Player
1 X Remote control
1 X Power adapter(AC 100-240V~50/60Hz)
1 X AV cable
1 X User manual
1 X screwdriver
2 X screws

I supervised her work, of course, as codgers will and did not have to intervene at any point -- didn't even have to bite my tongue. :)

Well done.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Wow!

I haven't had a new belt for over ten years and it was an adventure to choose this one.

Wonderful smell of leather, beautifully stitched, perfect action on the buckle -- Timberland continues to be a very high quality supplier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solidly made and working well, November 15, 2015
This is a solidly made charger, 3.15 x 2.36 x 1.18 in. / 80 x60x30 mm, in a heavy duty package -- weighs about 5 ounces I would guess.

Charges well from my Lenovo Think Pad; would have liked an AC capability for charging as an option but works very well with direct current.

A very nice feature; the flashing light shows how full the tank is; it came at 87% and is charging at about 1% in two minutes at the moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent starter mattress, November 14, 2015
As a 24/7 caregiver for a number of years for my late wife, we tried three or four different alternating pressure mattresses.

During the last three months of her life, we needed a much larger and feature filled pressure mattress, primarily because she got great joy from manipulating the controls of the bed.

However, this mattress would have been perfectly adequate as a starter mattress when she was more mobile and needed protection from bed sores, one of the greatest banes of the bed-ridden and the caregiver.

I tested this mattress for several nights and am very pleased to give it high marks, both from price and utility perspectives.

PROLOSO Portable Knife Sharpener with Base Suction Cup
PROLOSO Portable Knife Sharpener with Base Suction Cup
Offered by long deng
Price: $5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great performance in a small package, November 14, 2015
Excellent single pass sharpener, very small, very secure when attached to my wooden butcher block counter, three or four swipes and even cheap knives -- and why pray tell would own and use such a knife -- and it has an excellent edge.

To a certain extent I am a little embarrassed to so enthusiastic about this little workhorse. I took a five day Boot Camp at the Culinary Institute of America in New Hyde Park, and learned a great deal about knives and knife care. Check out The Professional Chef's Knife Kit from the CIA -- it covers the waterfront of how to care for and use knives in a very comprehensive and professional way.

But when a little dab will do you, this sharpener can't be beat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective at softening my very coarse hair, November 14, 2015
This the second Luseta combination I've tried. It leaves my coarse hair very soft, has a pleasant aroma which wears off in time for breakfast.

Really I can't decide which I prefer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff, November 14, 2015
I have coarse, very curly hair. This combination makes it amazingly soft -- I don't recognize it when I run my fingers over my head -- even six to eight hours later. "Smooth" indeed.

Please, understated aroma that wears off in about an hour so it doesn't interfere with the taste of my breakfast.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for this codger, despite trying for two weeks, November 13, 2015
My doctor recommended the NeilMed Sinus Rinse - 2 Bottles - 250 Premixed Packets and NasaMist Saline Spray, Kit system four years ago: "It will take out all the crud left behind from breathing our challenging New York City air."

Used virtually every day morning and evening -- it's become a way of life.

They say codgers should change habits from time to time and I tried, really, really tried, but after two weeks gave up. Several problems:

-- very soft plastic -- I needed to use two hands to make it work -- NeilMed one is enough.
-- very little water flow -- no matter how hard I pressed, I couldn't the liquid into my mouth through the sinuses.
-- hard to fill even with a little funnel my companion gave me as a present.

They also say it takes 50 repetitions to learn a new skill -- but not in this bit of daily health care for this codger.

Good luck if you try these and if you haven't used this sort of self treatment, try the NeilMed system. Next to learning the Stork for improved balance, this was the best medical advice I ever received.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great seasoning, and a useful introduction to cooking, November 12, 2015
This is an outstanding grinder set, especially well packaged and will make a perfect holiday gift for a young couple just starting out life together. Solidly made, with excellent visibility for the contents. Very easy to open and re-fill. Also, very easy to adjust the grind with either device, from a very fine to a very coarse grind. And ceramic and true stainless steel promise outstanding durability for mainy years -- one hopes the marriage lasts so long. ::)

Neither of these kids are especially good cooks but both are eager learners. The set includes a very good beginning cookbook by Donna Ryan, very well written and quite useful. It has a 1950's feeling but the photographs are excellent and the text useful for browsing.

This set was furnished by the Amazon Seller for review purposes.
