iPhone 6 Plus - Drop Tech V2 - Ruggedized Case - Black - Smoke
Price: $39.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Top of the line screen sensitivity and phone protection., May 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Drop Tech V2 Ruggedized Case from Gumdrop Cases is aptly named. Made of attractive and resilient black rubber, it gives serious protection to your iPhone 6 Plus. The case is easy to grip and looks great. The screen protector is the most precise and responsive I have ever used (and I have used several). In fact, the sensitivity is so much better than all previous cases, I will be keeping this for a long time.


Turtle Beach Large Traction Premium Textured Control Surface Gaming Mouse Pad for PC and Mac
Turtle Beach Large Traction Premium Textured Control Surface Gaming Mouse Pad for PC and Mac
Price: $24.63

5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of Mouse Pad Real Estate . . ., May 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Plenty of mouse pad real estate for the serious gamer. The Turtle Beach Large Traction Premium is large enough that you won't be picking up your high res mouse in the middle of game play. Team this up with a Corsair M-60 high resolution mouse, and you'll be able to precisely make one pixel movements for that perfect aim. Make sure you have plenty of table space. This pad has a very comfortable, but high traction surface. It allows for high level game play without lifting the mouse in the middle of serious scenes. Large enough that you won't be running off the edge of your pad at those critical times in the game!


Vornado VFAN Jr. Vintage Air Circulator, Red

5.0 out of 5 stars Retro Looks and Solid Performance, May 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Striking retro looks and powerful fan performance sum up the Vornado. This is one cool fan. Right out of the box I was impressed with the fire engine red color on the solid steel body and base. The Vornado has the solid feel of antique fans from the 1930s-1950s. The fan is a two speed---basically low and high. The low speed is pleasant for moving air at close range. At high speed, you can feel the Vornado 20 feet away. Pretty amazing for such a small package. This is a full functioning fan in a remarkably attractive package. This eye-catcher draws a lot of interested looks from visitors.


Badlands: A Novel
Badlands: A Novel
by C. J. Box
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $19.88

5.0 out of 5 stars Badlands----Explore a New Part of the Box Canon!, March 30, 2015
This review is from: Badlands: A Novel (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
C.J. Box is a master of page-turning detective fiction. Like everything else from author C.J. Box, this was a thoroughly enjoyable read. Having read all of the Joe Pickett novels, I have to say I was not disappointed with this "non-Joe-Pickett" entry into the Box canon. Badlands was impossible to put down. For C.J. Box "Joe Pickett " fans: The protagonist, Cassie, is a worthy main character, likeable, smart and relentless. The story has all the earmarks of a good Box novel, unpredictable plot twists, and hair raising action---all well done. For those new to C.J. Box: This is modern detective fiction at its very best. A well-done procedural narrative, delivered with impeccable taste. Box is a master of detective fiction. I am going to spare you details. Suffice it to say that if you want a thoroughly engrossing detective story, you will not be disappointed.


Centon Electronics Flash Memory Card (S1-SDXU1-64G)

Price: $21.72

1.0 out of 5 stars Did not work---at all. . ., March 28, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Centon 64GB memory card did not work, even when tried in multiple cameras. The first camera generated an error message: "Cannot Read From This Memory Card." Camera was fully SDXC compatible. That camera would not attempt a format. No attempts at reloading-etc. were successful. Tried in in another camera, and received the message that it required formatting. Repeated attempts to format this card failed. The cameras used were name brand cameras in good working order that use secure digital cards as recording media.


Brain2Brain: Enacting Client Change Through the Persuasive Power of Neuroscience
Brain2Brain: Enacting Client Change Through the Persuasive Power of Neuroscience
by John B. Arden PhD
Edition: Paperback
Price: $35.00
30 used & new from $25.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Loaded with Useful Information for the Clinician, March 26, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book, while ostensibly intended for therapists-in-training, is chock-full of useful neuroscience information on everything from memory systems, to various diagnoses. The concise compilation of neuroscience data across topics ranging from anxiety to depression, to PTSD, obsessive compulsive disorder, and processes such as memory systems, and auto stress disorders is truly amazing and makes for interesting reading, even for the experienced clinician. The Post Traumatic Stress Disorder chapter is quite good, and, by itself, is probably worth the price of the book. This monograph is geared toward mental health clinicians who are working with individuals likely to be seeking individual psychotherapy services. The author does not devote space to major mental illnesses that are treated exclusively by pharmacologic intervention. This book will probably be useful to entry level clinicians, and also to experienced clinicians seeking to understand the neuroscience underpinnings of the emotional healing they have been doing successfully for years.

Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance Limited Ingredient Diets Sweet Potato and Bison Formula Dry Dog Food, 4.5-Pound Bag

4.0 out of 5 stars Healthy Ingredients, February 20, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The big question with dog food is "will the dog actually eat it?" We have had mixed results, but that has been true with all dried dog foods, including several name brands. I hoped the use of bison as an ingredient would make Natural Balance more palatable than others, but such was not the case. The mix of ingredients looks healthy and I have no doubt it is a nutritious dog food.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what a garden hose should be., January 20, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a high quality garden hose that uses an internal mesh "skeleton" to keep it round and unbent. The hose is lightweight and convenient for normal household and gardening activities such as supplying your sprinkler, watering plans or, my personal favorite, washing the car. Does the job well. I've used this in every gardening situation I can imagine, and it has not kinked up once!

This 12-pack of Purell is a convenient multi-pack of this well-respected hand sanitizer. The bottles are perfect sized for home use in high traffic areas.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Feature Rich Editor With A Steep Learning Curve., December 22, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is really just a preliminary review of Pinnacle Studio 18 Ultimate. In the interest of full disclosure, I have been using average-consumer-targeted editors up to this point, and I spend a lot of my time working with two tracks and doing L and J cuts using A and B footage of live musical performances. Pinnacle is targeted to the sophisticated video editor who is interested in doing a lot more with the video. First, the good news: Rendering in a 64 bit environment, has to be seen to be believed. It is amazingly fast. Output quality is beautiful using AVCHD source video (which is normally tough to work with) at 1080/60i. This is especially true if you burn to an AVCHD disc. DVD Menu variety alone is mind blowing, and the menus I have used are smooth and professional. On the other hand, this editor has a steep learning curve for those of us used to the simpler, consumer models. While basic single track editing with an unbelievable number of high-end effects is relatively easy, I have been working hard to learn how to do what I consider simple multi-track editing. After a couple of attempts at trying to cowboy my way through it, I caved in and purchased Jeff Naylor's "Pinnacle Studio 18 Plus and Ultimate Revealed." In my case it is a must for beginning to tap the resources in this program. Since I have never worked with a professional level editor before, working with Pinnacle has been a learning experience. I get the impression that this program can take you as far as you want to go with video editing, but it will take this amateur a while to get beyond scratching the surface. I like a challenge, and learning to work with all the features of this program is likely to make me a much better video editor. I will have to amend this review once I climb a little higher up the learning curve.
