Colgate Enamel Health Anticavity Fluoride Sparkling Fresh Mint Mouthwash, 8.5 Ounce
Colgate Enamel Health Anticavity Fluoride Sparkling Fresh Mint Mouthwash, 8.5 Ounce
Price: $4.49

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much taste, September 1, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Ok, I get it. No alcohol. It's trying to be minty-ish, sort of. But overall this taste is very tentative. Nothing like the very sparky TheraBreath Dentist Recommended Fresh Breath Oral Rinse - Mild Mint Flavor, 16 Ounce (Pack of 2). Not even as much as the muted Nature's Answer PerioBrite Alcohol-Free Mouthwash, Cool Mint, 16-Fluid Ounce. Check for an article on the Internet named Fundamentals of Dentifrice: Oral Health Benefits in a Tube to get an idea of what fluoride is supposed to do. Just ensure to spit it all out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product, September 1, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a good roller, The black ones are supposed to be the hardest. It does work well. However, as it's only 18 inches wide, would not recommend this to someone who has not used one before as it may turn out from under you if you are not careful. If you are a beginner then go with something that is more like 36 inches wide.

We have a few puppets already including a kitten. This little seal, with it's big eyes, is a hit with toddlers and young children. Great quality, highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars CHECK your cable SIGNAL strength FIRST, August 25, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a solid cable modem. Setup is easy. Simply put, this modem works and there is no [major] reason not to buy it.

There are two minor points that make it just ever so slightly not up to snuff with the more polished MOT/Arris SB6141.

A) reset time - This modem seems to take 2x-3x to be ready after a power start than other Motorola modems like SB5101U and [Arris] SB6141.
B) heat - The modem is giving off noticeably more heat that the above mentioned modems.

It is slightly larger than the SB 6141 but smaller than the SB5101U.

Either would be fine in plain sight, on a desk, etc. If function is more important than aesthetics, then this modem is fine. If you want a slightly smaller, faster to boot, cooler, and better looking product, go with the ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem - Retail Packaging - White

*** CHECK YOUR EXISTING SIGNAL STRENGTH FIRST **

Often DOCSIS 3.0 modems needs better line quality/strength than DOCSIS 2.0 modems.

On many cable modems you can use 192.168.100.1 to get to the console. Check the following values:

- Downstream Signal to Noise ratio should be >= 33db (if anything is below 33db you are asking for issues)
- Downstream Power Level should be around 0 (anything in the minus range is going to be an issue, double digits minus then forget it)
- Upstream Power Level should be ~40dbmv or slightly below (higher would indicate the modem is trying to shout louder on a weak connection).

If you don't have enough signal a DOCSIS 3.0 modem may not work or at very slow speeds. It is possible that your cable/ISP can improve your existing line signal by checking/changing connectors.

1.0 out of 5 stars Microbeads, bad for the environment, August 23, 2015
Contains Polyethylene (PE) microbeads which are very dangerous to the environment. From wikipedia:

Microbeads from exfoliating personal care products and toothpastes are washed down the drain after use, pass unfiltered through the sewage treatment plants and make their way into rivers and canals, resulting in plastic particle water pollution.[3] Plastic microbeads have been found to pollute the Great Lakes which has become a substantial environmental concern. Research found high concentrations of plastics in U.S. lakes, particularly Lake Erie. Microbeads accounted for 90 percent of these plastics.[4]

In 2012, the North Sea Foundation and the Plastic Soup Foundation launched an app that allows Dutch consumers to check whether personal care products contain microbeads.[5] In the summer of 2013, the United Nations Environment Programme and UK based NGO Fauna and Flora International joined the partnership to further develop the app for international audiences. The app has enjoyed great success, convincing a number of large multinationals to stop using microbeads,[6] and is available in seven languages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great water, but in a can? Meh, August 20, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
l've been drinking Perrier for decades. These cans are an interesting size. But I have to say that drinking Perrier from a can is not the thing to do. I think it tastes better when sipped out of a glass, and maybe even slightly better if it has been bottled, in glass. There is something about the cans that does not support the taste as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars CHECK your cable SIGNAL strength FIRST, August 18, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got full DL speeds (~17mbps) the first night of the install. Next morning, crawling at 1mbs down. Had to switch back to the old modem (SB5101U which is DOCSIS 2.0 and is working at 17mbps down). Issue in my case is my TWC provided cable signal strength is enough for DOCSIS 2.0 but not DOCSIS 3.0.

If you are thinking about getting SB6141 you need to check your signal strength in the UI for your current modem to save yourself some hassel. On many MOT modems you can use 192.168.100.1 to get to the console.

I talked directly to a very helpful person in MOTO/Arris support. This is what MOT/Arris tech said more or less.
- DOCSIS 3.0 modems typically need more signal power than DOCSIS 2.0.
- Downstream Signal to Noise ratio should be >= 33db (if anything is below 33db you are asking for issues)
- Downstream Power Level should be around 0 (anything in the minus range is going to be an issue, double digits minus then forget it)
- Upstream Power Level should be ~40dbmv or slightly below (higher would indicate the modem is trying to shout louder on a weak connection).

If you have any of these signal issues you probably need to request TWC to send a line tech to come out and get you back into range.
TWC can attempt to send a provisioning signal to help the modem, but this may not work

When I called TWC to switch back to the DOCSIS 2.0 modem they didn't ask me to check any signal strength. And they didn't put together the fact that DOCSIS 2.0 works and 3.0 does not.

SOLUTION: In my case it was old connectors, one at the street, and one in the garage, that was preventing me from getting adequate signal to use a DOCSIS 3.0 modem. TWC came out and replaced those connectors free of charge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, stimulates the imagination, August 16, 2015
This review is from: Barbie Saddle 'N Ride Horse (Toy)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is something about horses, or in this case ponies based on how large Barbie is compared to the 'horse'. This is for a two-going-on-three year old who's mom and auntie are avid horse folks. The mounting and riding actions are pretty neat. But yes, Barbie doesn't know how to do too much else. But still, girls seem to have that kind of intuitive sense that crosses into where horses are functioning. Surely something here than merely a toy (stimulating the imagination) while providing hours of fun at the same time.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There is something just really right about these bottles. This is the smaller bottle (5oz vs 9oz) so the amount they hold is about right for a very young babies feeding (~0-4mo). The nipple design seems very comfortable, much more so than anything else other than mother. The amount of gas and burping seems significantly reduced. And BPA free! A great product.

There is something just really right about these bottles. The amount they hold is about right for a normal feeding (8mo). The nipple design seems very comfortable, much more so than anything else other than mother. The amount of gas and burping seems significantly reduced. And BPA free! A great product.
