4.0 out of 5 stars Works great ... careful with the metal, July 1, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a great, lightweight, rotating case. The alternatives (that let you stand it in portrait mode) used to be quite a bit bulkier. They solve the "standing at different angles" issue by use of friction, which gives you a wider range of angles.

The rotating thing was no problem for me. You'll have to unfold/angle the stand a bit to do this.

It was easy to insert the iPad. It seems secure although not as tight as some other cases. There are cutouts for all the ports.

The cons ... YMMV. I don't like the feel of the material that much - hard to describe. Hardish and synthetic, maybe? I would have liked a faux leather or softer touch.

The other thing is the metal strip on the flap - you need to be careful not to rub it against an unprotected screen. If you fold the flap the wrong way, it may happen. If you're cognizant of this you'll be OK, but ... accidents can happen, especially with careless borrowers, so ... be careful.

Otherwise, if you want a dual-mode stand, this will serve nicely.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to your toolbox, July 1, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This pillow has nice, firm support. Makes it much easier to feed baby, and better tummy time. Flat design prevents "baby rolloff". Works well in many chair/sofa situations. Also, there are multiple uses, such as helping baby to sit up.

The cover is soft, comfy, removable and washable, with a cute print besides. Extra covers are available for purchase.

Vibration unit is useful (depending on interest level), but is sometimes turned on or off by mistake. You can remove it if desired.

Narrow opening may be an issue for some that prevents comfortable use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for its intended use, July 1, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a light, colorful, configurable tub for travel use. It's easy to fold and store, and you can inflate it to the desired size for your baby (or day, apparently). You can also decide which of the inflatables to use - one, or both.

This is a great design for its purpose. It's not meant for everyday use, but for sometime travel use, although it may also serve for everyday (not knowing its durability in this case).

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK, but needs more bass, June 26, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Easy setup. Only two inputs - optical and 3.5mm analog, no HDMI. Powers on with the TV.

Good sound and volume, but not much bass. No output to power a subwoofer. That's probably the biggest downside of this unit. Makes it OK for regular use but not for a theater-type man-cave.

One issue is that I have it connected via optical cable and I haven't found a way to control the volume using my TV remote, so I have to use the included remote.

The remote is tiny and flat. Buttons are a bit hard to press.

Bluetooth is a nice feature - you can connect it to your smartphone and play music, etc. on it.

Summary: nice sound except for lack of bass power, limited input options.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting design, June 25, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Pros:

Rugged construction.
Full sound profile, once you find the right eargels to isolate sound.
Magnetic earpieces go into standby when joined. Easy way to re-pair as well. Lets you hang them around your neck.
Neat sliding piece to access charging port.
No noticeable noise from connecting cord.

Cons:

Magnets are only so strong, sometimes disconnect when carried around. Can't store them in pouch like this.
Only goes into standby when the magnets are aligned properly.
The earwings are a bit of a pain to put on, and tend to come off easily.
Pouch is hard to close. Weird choice.
5 hour battery.

Bottom line: good sound. Magnets helpful but be aware they may disconnect and turn on in some scenarios. Hope you don't need the earwings, but maybe you'll have better luck with those.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does a great job, June 25, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Pros: does a great job of shaving longer hairs (1/3") further down the neck. This is something my Panasonic ES8103 cannot do. Easily washable under the tap.
Five-minute quick charge
60 minute run time

Cons: a bit large. The only other con I can think of is that this thing will not win any beauty contests. It looks plasticky and all business and function, unlike the Panasonic which has a sleek look.

In summary, despite its unsexy appearance, it does a great job of shaving hairs that are a problem for other shavers

4.0 out of 5 stars Depends how well you can isolate sound, June 25, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a comfortable pair of earphones. It's supposed be waterproof as well, to bear the rigors of your workout, but I did not test this claim. This design is a little bit harder to put on without some practice.

The packaging includes seven pairs of earbuds to achieve a perfect fit. Why? Because the better the fit, the better the bass. In my case, I managed find a pair that fit better than the default, although not as snugly as I would like. However, as other reviewers have managed to get bass sound that they like, it probably has to do with my apparently nonstandard ear canals.

Similarly, I managed to get better sound isolation with that pair of buds, good enough that you can listen to music while the TV is on.

The Play button takes a little bit more force to activate than I would like. You end up pressing it against the side of your head. Some similar earphones have controls placed on the top of or other edges, which would be preferable to me, due to the amount of force needed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute stand, June 25, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It does what it says: props up a tablet and provides storage space for cords and chargers. It's a nice, bright, fun color as well. Rubberized treads on the bottom prevent it from slipping.

However, I do wish it allowed for more standing angles. You're pretty much limited to one angle, but there must have been a way to provide more, maybe with a wider trough and rubberized material at the bottom of the trough?

In any case, it does accomplish its goal.

4.0 out of 5 stars A cute little camera, June 18, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Pros:
Hotspot technology does not require router connection, 300' range (I've only tested this within the house, with no issues)
Password security
Camera can be used without the base; 3 hours of operation on rechargeable battery
Great night vision
Night light, lullaby tunes
Take pictures and video to your phone (1280x720 or 848x480 resolution)
Two-way talk
Motion event recording to optional SD card
Motion, sound, or temperature alerts, all of which work pretty well

Cons:
3-hour battery life is not much, although not sure when you would use this. You could pair it with a portable recharger, I suppose. Still, a nice option.
Cannot view on PC or Mac
Couldn't seem to record video AND two-way talk at the same time

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Pros:

Have to charge batteries in pairs.
