DeLonghi TRD40615E High Performance Radiant Heater
DeLonghi TRD40615E High Performance Radiant Heater
Offered by SupplyTiger
Price: $129.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The KING of radiators!, September 24, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This DeLonghi TRD40615E radiator is beyond amazing!

The easy to use and understand front panel is just perfect. The digital readout is easy to see and read at any angle. The display is even dim-able with three light levels. This is really nice if you sleep in the same room as the heater and don't want it to illuminate the entire room with it's display. The panel is also made so that it is nice and flush with no knobs or stupid protruding buttons to knock off or break. A very solid design and feel to it.

Setting the temperature is simple and straight forward. Set your desired temp, adjust your output level (low, medium, and high settings), and you're good to go. On top of all this, there is even an ECO setting which kinda cycles on and off to conserve energy all while maintaining a good temp. It seems to work quite well for us so we just leave it on ECO.

The new design is definitely better as it heats the room much more evenly. It seems to pull the cooler air from the bottom fins through convection and emits it from the top all while keeping the sides 'cooler to the touch' (even though it is still quite warm at times).

Zero complaints in terms of performance, style, design, or functionality. Truly a top performer and an amazing buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice updated version from the older version!, September 22, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Fisher-Price loving family dollhouse is somewhat of a through-back for me as I remember it back in the 90s.

It's nice to see that it's been updated quite a lot since I last remember them. The figures are bit more realistic looking and WAY more articulated (the ones I remember looked super cartoony and didn't bend all that much).

Everything stores nicely in the house to keep the clutter of tiny Loving Family bits and pieces to a minimum, though the house does take up a bit of real estate.

Now you will end up having to spend a good $50+ for some accessories to furnish this desolate house with a bedroom, living room, and bathroom set. So think about that prior to purchasing.

It seems to hold the kid's attention well enough. And only time will tell how durable it is.

Overall, I and the kids like it. Plenty of replay.

5.0 out of 5 stars They fit our 16" thick mattress!, September 22, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We have a quite a thick pillowtop queen size mattress that measures a solid 15"-16" deep. Due to it's size it has been somewhat difficult to get sheets to fit. To my surprise these fit!

They look exactly as the pictures stated, not the least bit different.

They are amazingly soft and keep the lady of the house plenty warm.

Zero complaints and hope they hold up for a while so we can enjoy them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps the women of the house happy and warm! ;), September 22, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Love it love it love it! This new DeLonghi oil radiator is so much better than the previous version we had.

First and foremost, there was zero odd or bad smell from turning it on for the first time. This was something that we experienced from our old DeLonghi and on occasion still do every once and again.

Super fast heat up, easy to set temperature (and maintaining that temperature). The timer was a bit difficult to figure out, but after reading the manual (highly recommended!), it works awesomely. It's nice to set it to kick on a few minutes before you get up. :)

The remote, while kinda neat, isn't all that necessary. I could take it or leave it.

In terms of efficiency we have seen little to no difference in our electric bill all while being more comfortable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Low gloss protectant that seems to last..., September 16, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It seems like I've used almost every rubber and vinyl protect on the market and none seem to offer any sort of lasting effect. On top of that a lot of them contain petroleum distillates that seem to aid in the breakdown of the rubber and vinyl they are being used on (properly formulated products don't have this issue). einszett's Vinyl and Rubber seems to be a bit different.

Used on exterior black molding and trim, it brings it back to life with a moderate gloss that quickly subsides to an almost gloss-less sheen. At first I thought it really hadn't worked, but after a few days I quickly realized that it was indeed working and providing some protection and hadn't just faded away like Armour-All, Back to Black, Black Magic, or any of the other 'protectants' I've used in the past.

As a tire dressing, it seems to work fairly well on new to almost new tires. On older tires it doesn't seem to last as long, but still works. Just like on the exterior trim the tires had a slight sheen to them, not overly glossy. For me I prefer not to have glossy black tires so this einszett works for me.

Until I come across another product that does a better job, this one ranks in the top three protectants in my garage.


OXO Good Grips Jar Spatula, White
OXO Good Grips Jar Spatula, White

5.0 out of 5 stars About time! A spatula that works great in jars!, September 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It just seems strange to rave about a simple spatula... but this OXO jar spatula works amazingly well.

Where normal sized spatula fail to reach (the corners and very bottom of jars), this spatula makes quick work of. It gets in all the tight and small spaces with ease.

On top of that, the length is just perfect for most 30 oz jars (like those of condiments) without having to stick your hand halfway in the jar either.

Dishwasher safe, 600°F heat resistant, NO downsides at all!

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks and feels cheap... oh wait... it is., September 10, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm not all that impressed with this Bell seat cover at all.

First and foremost the "quilting" is a joke. It's done quite poorly and is uneven in appearance (not sewn in a straight line). On top of that the foam backing that is suppose to give the quilting an embossed/raised effect is maybe 1/8" thick open cell foam that will and has already ripped from sliding in and out of the seat. So don't expect the quilted look to last very long.

The "suede" is not real suede from what I can tell and like many of the other reviewers have pointed out.

The only redeeming quality of this cover is getting it installed, it installs just like any other seat cover, in about 5 minutes.

Cheaply made, overpriced, crap. Look elsewhere for a quality seat cover (I'd HIGHLY recommend a Coverking).

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the old formula!, September 2, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
BSN's NO Xplode is one of my favorite pre-workout supplements.

I was a huge fan of their older formula (Green Apple flavor was my favorite), but I am very impressed with this new formula. Not only is is jam packed full of goodness, it's a smaller dosage AND fewer floaters.

The pumps and endurance are just phenomenal... honestly I can't tell you how much more awesome this new formula is.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not really that chemical resistant..., September 2, 2014
I've used these for a multitude of products and mixes. While they worked with water based products, they are not really all that chemical resistant. I've had two of them melt with two different products poured into them leaving them a mangled mess of plastic.

So if you plan on using them for something other then water based products, look elsewhere.


Herbal Essences Naked Volume Shampoo 23.7 Fl Oz,
Herbal Essences Naked Volume Shampoo 23.7 Fl Oz,

4.0 out of 5 stars Great shampoo, not sure on the volumizing..., September 1, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Herbal Essences Naked Volume Shampoo is definitely some great stuff.

The shampoo lathers up extremely well with just a small amount. Rinses clean with ease and does not require multiple lathers which is nice for those who have a lot of hair or really long hair.

The smell is amazing and not only does it smell good, it lasts a long time (multiple days for me). Not too strong either.

The only thing I can not it down 1 star for is the volumizing claim. It's hard to tell if it adds volume or not. It seems to but not entirely sure how much.

Hands down though, I'll still be using it due to how well it lathers, cleans, and rinses great.
