3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonably handy, but thin line and magnets are not very strong., May 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Great idea and very handy to have these hanging right on your board. The magnets are not super strong, or my white board is very weak, and they will often slide down the board until they reach a spot with a stronger attractive force. The quality of the ink is fine, but the lines are quite thin and can be hard to read if there is much distance between the viewers and the board.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good way to keep papers separated and organized in a vertical bag or backpack., May 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've gone from using a briefcase style computer case to a backpack style and this vertical file pocket has helped me keep my papers organized and away from the various and sundry cords and small devices that are in the main pocket. The vertical orientation is very handy for the backpack. It seems to be quite durable so far. It's a bit thicker than I had envisioned in my mind, but it still fits easily into the backpack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great way to "remodel" your speakers or receiver., May 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a great way to "remodel" your old set of speakers or that receiver that is from the bygone "before bluetooth" era. There's no configuration to speak of; just plug it in to the speakers/receiver and the wall and you are good to go. The device itself is pretty small and attractive. It is square with a taper in to a smaller square base that is rubberized so as not to slip. Unfortunately, this causes the base to not sit flush for me if it is near the edge of a shelf as the weight of the cables causes it to tilt. It's not an unusual problem with smaller devices these days, but the design doesn't help it much. The sound and range are very good for Bluetooth. It does not have or receive microphone input and on the iPhone 5S will only output non-call audio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-featured and stunningly good picture for the price., May 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If you don't need or want to pay for a higher resolution image, this projector is awesome. It's ftp, the value line of Epson's excellent series of 3LCD projectors. The picture is sharp and the colors are bright and vivid. I used this as a display for a laptop during a conference meeting and people preferred the wall image to their own laptop screen. We have one of the higher end 3LCD models at my office and the only real differences are the resolution and the color of the device (this one is white).

3.0 out of 5 stars Birds like it, squirrels love it!, April 17, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is an attractive feeder that provides easy access for the birds to sunflower seeds. Because of the size of the metal grid, it's really limited to the sunflower. Meanwhile, the squirrels have figured out that they can hang on it and shake a bounty of seeds down to their friends on the ground. They are now adept at draining it -very- fast. I wouldn't use it without a very good squirrel defense or big pockets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully made and versatile, April 17, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My wife had been looking for a new crockpot and was hoping to get away from ceramics, so we couldn't have been more pleased to have an opportunity to review this unit. The base is straightforward and simple - no electronics to be concerned with - and the pot itself is heavy and well made. We've used it for a number of different purposes and it has been great with everything from cooking veggies, browning meat and slow-cooking a beef stew.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great; love the charging case., April 17, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It has been a while since I've had a Jawbone headset and I'm really very pleased with this one. Sound quality has been great; callers can hear me clearly and voice dictation is essentially errorless, even in a noisy environment. The charging case is awesome; I leave it on my keyring and keep the headset in it whenever I am not using it, keeping it handy and from getting lost (as small as they are these days, it's been a problem).

4.0 out of 5 stars Works easily, heats up quickly, April 17, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've been pretty pleased with this laminator. It heats up as advertised, which is significantly more quickly than our Fellowes laminator that is a year or two old. Laminations are clean and clear. You have to take some care in getting a straight pull; some guides would be nice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good looking, useable cover., April 17, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a nice, sturdy cover. The iPad clips into it (it's not a sleeve as others have mentioned theirs were) and is held securely. The cover has a small magnet that barely keeps it closed when held upside down. It also has a cutout for the rear camera. It's a good, clever disguise - a little less noticeable and easier to use than the BookBook from 12 South.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would be great without connectivity issues; but they are easily resolved., April 17, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This stylus has great potential. I really enjoyed writing with it, when it would stay connected. After a time, it would connect and disconnect randomly in rapid succession. This was maddening because when it disconnects, the associated app turns off palm rejection. It became impossible to write and I almost gave up on it, figuring it was a software or bluetooth issue that would be resolved down the road. As it turns out, after looking through some support forums, there is a manufacturing defect where the battery does not maintain good contact with the retaining spring. I added a small, thin metal washer into the battery compartment between the battery and the cap spring. The cap is no longer completely screwed down, but it is secure and now works like a charm. Seriously.

So, the upshot is this: if you already own it, it's an easy, but somewhat unattractive fix. If you don't own it, I don't know that I would buy it right now. Paying a premium for a stylus that you have to modify with a washer just doesn't make sense to me.
