Uniden GMR2035-2 GMRS/FRS Two-Way Radio, Black
Uniden GMR2035-2 GMRS/FRS Two-Way Radio, Black
Price: $28.67

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Value For A Basic Set - Highly Recommended, May 24, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Uniden GMR2035-2 GMRS/FRS Two-Way Radio is a very basic but perfectly functional radio set, suitable for casual camping or kid use. We have quite a few sets of FRS/GMRS radios that we use when camping, hiking, and for employee use in our large building, but those are likely overkill with all of the security and other features that are lacking on this model. The main benefit to these is the low price and decent performance.

This set comes with the two radios, belt clips, and 6 "AAA" batteries. We tested these to 2-miles in the woods where we live and about 1/4-mile in the town where we have our businesses, with decent results.

These would be excellent for kids, as a backup set, or for casual use. When comparing to other brands or models, the features these don't have are sideband security, NOAA Weather Alerts, built in LED flashlight, and rechargeable batteries, but they are very inexpensive and a good value for a decent range walkie talkie set!

Highly Recommended!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Zinus Elite SmartBase Mattress Foundation is easy to set up and is actually quite sturdy! We needed this for our guest room and it is a good solution for our needs.

The frame comes in a fairly large box that is better moved with an extra pair of hands. We had this assembled, without needing any extra tools, in under a half hour and it fit our queen sized mattress perfectly. The height is good for the room we have it in and it does provide good support for the mattress.

Highly Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good For Casual Use - Highly Recommended, May 22, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Cobra ACXT345 Walkie-Talkie set is good physical quality, come packed with a lot of features, and work great outside in the woods, but are not very useful in town. We spend a lot of time hiking and camping, so a good set of radios is always useful and these worked great at the 2-miles or so that we tested them to. We also tried these in our small town between our two business locations located about a quarter of a mile apart and they only provided a short bust of static and could not hear the person on the other end.

The radios support both low power FRS and GMRS channels, as well as NOAA Weather channels. I do like the side code capabilities of the FRS/GMRS channels since that gives you some degree of privacy between your handsets.

Other than the expected short range when used in town, this more than meets my expectations!

Highly Recommended!

Price: $149.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality - Highly Recommended, May 22, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Rubbermaid Commercial Infinity Traditional High-Capacity 4.1-Gallon Smoking Urn, Weighted Base, Black (9W33BLA) is excellent quality, being all metal and quite stable!

We own a small business and absolutely hate the collection of cigerette butts that accumulate in our sidewalk from smokers dropping them before coming into the shop (but we do still love our smoking customers). This well made and easy to assemble urn looks very professional and there is no way a butt can cause any trouble once it goes in the top!

I like that this can be locked if needed (padlock not included) and can also be secured via bolts to the floor or ground (hardware not included).

Highly Recommended!

The package includes 2 Radios, a charging cradle (holds both), AC Adapter, 6 Rechargeable "AA" Batteries (3 for each handset), 2 Belt Clips, and the instructions. I like that the batteries came charged and we could use these right away.

These are fairly tough and clearly made for outdoor usage since they are also waterproof, The radios support both low power FRS and hi power GRS channels, as well as NOAA Weather channels. I do like the side code capabilities of the FRS/GRS channels since that gives you some degree of privacy between your handsets. The radio also has an easy to use LED flashlight, which is handy when camping!

These are fairly tough and clearly made for outdoor usage since they are also water resistant, The radios support both low power FRS and hi power GRS (you need a licenses to use these, and we do have one) channels, as well as NOAA Weather channels. I do like the side code capabilities of the FRS/GRS channels since that gives you some degree of privacy between your handsets. This also has a nice feature that causes the handset to vibrate when first getting communication from one of the other handsets, so it is easy to tell when you have it clipped to your belt. The radio also has an easy to use LED flashlight, which is handy when camping!

This COOSA Smart Socket 5-AC Outlet + 2 USB Outputs UFO Shape Power Strip for Home/Office is a clever design that looks great and works nicely for my computer area.

The five AC power outlets are spaced so that they are all usable with standard plugs and the two 2.1A USB ports are quite handy for charging my tablet and cell phone. I like central On/Off switch as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality, Great Value - highly Recommended, May 19, 2016
This LED Headlamp,Super Bright 4000 Lumens 4 Modes Waterproof Headlight Flashlight with 2 Pcs Rechargeable 18650 Batteries is very well made and is a great value for what you get. We spend a lot of time outdoors and enjoy camping, so am always looking for good headlamps.

The headlamp adjusts to fit most adult sized heads and is fairly comfortable once properly fitted. The 18650 batteries are long lasting but you might want to get a few extras if you plan on using this over several days. I like how bright this is on the highest setting since it easily illuminates a large area in front of the wearer.

Highly Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Feature Rich Wireless Doorbell - Highly Recommended, May 19, 2016
This PowerLead Pdor D012 Doorbell Wifi Video Door Phone Doorbell Wireless Intercom is easy to install and is very high quality! We installed this in a secure area of our building so we could provide better access control for people needing access to the room.

This can be installed on either a wired Ethernet or wireless network. Installation on the wireless network was fairly straight forward using the included directions and we had this fully configured in under a half hour. This has three main components, including the Doorbell Unit, Unlock Unit, and a downloadable App (IPBell). Once we installed the the Doorbell Unit on the Wi-Fi and downloaded the App, it worked exactly as hoped. The video quality is quite good and you can capture stills and video clips directly to your phone (or tablet, which is what we are using). The two way voice communication is also decent once you figure out there will be a slight lag. This also works over the Internet, which is quite impressive since there really wasn't anything extra I had to configure to make it work!

Be sure to leave the app running in background of your device so it will "wake up" when someone presses the call button. The unit has a pleasant voice that notifies the visitor it is trying to get your attention and also sends a notification to your phone. The app also has an "Alarm" button, which sets off a very loud alarm at the main unit.

Overall, I am very pleased with the ease of use, functionality, and wide range of features this comes with right out of the box. I would like to have a PC app for this, but perhaps the company will release one in the future!

Highly Recommended!

This Belkin USB-IF Certified 3.1 USB Type C (USB-C) to Micro-B Cable is well made and provides very fast communication. A slightly longer cable would have been for my needs but that was just poor planning on my part.

The connectors are quite sturdy and should hold up to the wear associated with daily connections to portable devices.

Highly Recommended!
