4.0 out of 5 stars It's shampoo, it works, seems decent for thinning hair, August 21, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Seems to work fine for my thinning (getting old) hair. Nothing too exciting here. The bottle itself is decently sized (many drugstore products have been downsizing in my experience) and easy to grip in the shower.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, basic napkins that do shrink quite a bit, August 18, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Nice, heavy-weight napkins but quite basic in design. Very nice, basic cotton cloth napkins but they shrank significantly! I'd recommend washing these only by hand.

Size is about 9" square and they are made in Pakistan.


Turtle Beach Ear Force Z11 PC Stereo Gaming Headset (TBS-2145-011)
Turtle Beach Ear Force Z11 PC Stereo Gaming Headset (TBS-2145-011)
Price: $34.51

4.0 out of 5 stars Moderate price headset, works well for voice/calls/Skype, August 11, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am using this headset for Skype and conference calls and not for gaming. That said, the headset is comfortable for extending periods of time on the head, and the sound quality is fine for my purposes. I tried a little bit of music and it was clear that this was not the design goal of the headset. The sound levels are low, somewhat muffled, and treble response is iffy. Perfectly fine for my colleagues' voices and (presumably) the sound effects of nearby grenades detonating.

So, comfortable, decent quality feel, acceptable sound, and a moderate price.


Ziploc Slider Freezer Bags Quart 15 ct (Pack Of 3)
Ziploc Slider Freezer Bags Quart 15 ct (Pack Of 3)
Price: $7.84

5.0 out of 5 stars Ziploc quarts, wider and shorter than the non-freezer variety, August 11, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Go to bag for the summer garden season! These are wider (and not as tall) as the non-"freezer" Ziploc bags. The sliding closure works well, and this multi-pack is a good deal. We use these extensively for freezing tomato sauce and other garden veggies during the summer season. They keep well until use in the winter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but pricey replacement filters, August 11, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Works okay to humidify a small space, but you need to purchase replacement filters ("can last up to six weeks") at a third of the cost of the unit. You also need to keep it clean to avoid mold or other water-dwelling micro-badnesses.

Mine is in a box headed to South Pole where I'll be in January, with a little bit of humidity in my berth. Probably a decent dorm room item as well...


Husqvarna 954050501 Tractor Wheel Weights, Pair 62-Pound Total Weight
Husqvarna 954050501 Tractor Wheel Weights, Pair 62-Pound Total Weight
Price: $88.71

4.0 out of 5 stars Weights. For the wheels. They work., August 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are a pair of weights for the wheels. I bought them "scratch and dent" from amazon outlet and got a good deal. Full price is a bit much for some weights...

They mounted easily on my 2013 Husqvarna 46" mower with the included hardware. Bought them to improve winter traction while snowblowing, but they are handy after rain down in the lower part of the yard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, multi-use strainer bag, August 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Far better than cheesecloth! I had never made almond milk before, but this made for an easy process. Was thinking apple juice, and pressing cheese when I got the bag.

It's strong, a finely woven nylon with double stitching along the seams and a rope cinch for closing. Claimed to be BPA free. It cleaned easily between batches just by hand (though you could launder or dishwasher it).


Burt's Bees Brightening Refining Tonic, 6 Fluid Ounces

3.0 out of 5 stars Lukewarm reactions from the family, August 7, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The bottle indicates that it's supposed to be used in concert with other Burt's Bees products. Just looking at this product alone, it has a bit of an odd citrus aroma, but not a bad smell, and seems to dry the skin significantly where applied. Multiple folks in my household tried it and had lukewarm reactions to how well it worked.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vendor/product lock-in, but it does work well..., August 4, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Works quite well on wood floors. I decided to give the (free) product a try, normally the "locked-in" purchase model would have kept me far away from these. You need to buy the Swiffer cleaning liquid (the included bottle is hard to open and reuse), the little scrubber mats, and then it also takes batteries! All that said, the cleaning is pretty good, and quick. Is it worth the cost, and the vendor lock-in? That's up to you, and I haven't really decided myself yet if I'm going to buy more cleaning fluid from Swiffer or not...


Turtle Beach Ear Force Z60 Surround Sound PC Gaming Headset (TBS-6020-01)
Turtle Beach Ear Force Z60 Surround Sound PC Gaming Headset (TBS-6020-01)
Price: $119.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Sound quality just isn't very good, sorry!, August 4, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Music:

The sound quality of this headset was disappointing at the price-point. Better than earbuds, but nowhere near as good as many much less expensive headphones (look for low-cost audiophile headphone listings in a search). The sound was somewhat muddy, and the treble response was way off out of the box (fiddling with the EQ helped a bit). The dynamics were also not the best. Hard to recommend the sound of these.

Skype:

Mic worked and these seemed to give good isolation for a casual conversation.

Surround sound:

Well, that's gotta be pretty hard with headphones and I couldn't get much any advantage with them using test 5.1 and 7.1 sources. A bust on this one.

Other:

They look good, and feel comfortable on the head. Just too bad about the details of sound quality...
