5.0 out of 5 stars Premium quality at a premium price, June 2, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If you ever wanted to turn your iPad Air 2 into something like a Macbook Air, then this product gets you pretty close. While it is just a bluetooth keyboard, it is modeled off the Macbook keyboard layout quite closely (no trackpad obviously) and ZAGG did a great job on the aluminum body. It is a sturdy, lightweight and responsive backlit keyboard with a battery that lasts for hundreds of hours. The keys are quite as pleasantly springy as the ones on the Macbook Air, but otherwise, it is a terrific keyboard, and much better than many offered on laptops. It is at a premium price point, but offers the premium quality to justify it.

Works okay but doesnt stick as well as it should. A little easier than caulk if you are new to both, but those with a practiced hand may not be happy.

This easy to apply film turns any transparent surface into stained glass. It actually looks surprisingly nice and it comes off clean without any fuss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality at a reasonable price, May 29, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is my second All-Clad kitchen towel. Like the other towel, it is very absorbent and tough. It is an excellent kitchen towel at a reasonable price. Time will tell if the colors stay as vibrant as promised, but so far so good. It is great that there are so many choices for pattern and there are a plethora of matching kitchen textiles available in each color.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks much better in the bottle, May 29, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The little circle shown on the product page was what I expected the polish to look like on my daughter's nails, but what mostly came out of the bottle was the clear liquid. It was very difficult to get any of the large u (or c?) shaped pieces out and only a little glitter (one or two tiny pieces) came out with each dip. I tried mixing and shaking and manuevering the brush around the bottle, but nothing worked. My daughter ended up with basically clear nail polish on her nails, and nobody was very impressed with that. At least it claims to be not so toxic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple bug effective, May 27, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These simple felt cutouts come as a set of 3 various sizes. They lie in pots snd pans to avoid uneccessary wear and tear. If you usually stack pans on top of your nonstick cookware it can get scratched and scraped. These will help. They are also useful for protecting the seasoned coating on cast iron. They work well, but could be easily fashioned by hand if you are so inclined.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great; hasslefree, May 26, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Bosch GCL 25 Self Leveling Alignment Laser provides 5 points (forward, up, down, left, right) and two lines (vertical, horizontal) of reference to help you easily stay on mark when doing home renovations or decorating. The laser points have a range of 100 ft and the lines reach 30 ft according to Bosch. In practice, I found that depending on the surface and lighting, the range could be much farther. Operation is extremely simple. Plug in the 4 AA batteries (included) and slide the switch to on. There are two on positions: locked and unlocked. The unlocked position allows the device to self-align, while the locked position will let you keep the orientation fixed as you move the device. A button on top lets you switch between having all 5 points and 2 lines displayed or just the horizontal line, just the vertical line, or just the 5 points.

Construction is solid on the device and the case is a bit big, but will accomodate the optional accessories not included. The device does come a helpful miniature tripod that lets you easily dial in a precise height and also swivel the laser level. You can alternatively mount the laser level on a tripod using the 1/4" or 1/8" threaded holes. Overall, a very solid product that's easy to easy and built to last.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Hot Wheels accessories, May 26, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is definitely one of the better Hot Wheels accessories I have tried. My two daughters love playing with our hot wheels and now they get to do so while also making a mess with water and seeing their cars change colors. It is a little gimmicky and some kids might get tired of it, but probably not before their parents get tired of the mess being made. If you have a good place to set this up where the water won't be an issue, it is a terrific addition to any hot wheels collection and will likely be the star attraction of your hot wheels collection. Like all the hot wheels stuff, it is plastic and tracks are very flimsy, but it works just fine and it is not too expensive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rugged but obtrusive, May 24, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This case fulfills its main purpose quite well, offering superior protection for your expensive surface pro3 tablet. However, the added bulk means that the case gets in the way of using the surface to the point where I wouldn't recommend using the cover all the time. For travel, it works great, but around the office it is more annoying than useful. The stand feels cheap or maybe poorly designed and not a log of thought was given to using the case with a keyboard. However, given the choice between a slim case that is minimally intrusive and minimally protective versus this UAG case, I would heartily recommend this case.

5.0 out of 5 stars good for the price, May 23, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a budget friendly zip-tie mount for your gopro or similarly small action cam. It is plastic and lacks stability and precision, but it does the job in a pinch, but I don't think you will find much better for the price.
