4.0 out of 5 stars Very bright, blueish light, September 4, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This bulb is really, really bright. Its blueish tint makes it almost glaring. It will fit where most A40 bulbs will fit, comes on instantly, and turns off with a nice 'glow' like when turning off an incandescent bulb. You can also put this in a dimmable fixture, which is nice. I am using it in the garage, where the cold winter temps would reduce the output of compact fluorescent bulbs.

4.0 out of 5 stars it works fine in a residential setting and at 120v, September 4, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
In addition to this bulb's description, it works fine in a residential setting and at 120v. I have it in my garage and it puts out a lot of light. The color of the light is blueish, compared to standard incandescent or halogen. It should do fine in the cold temps of winter as well. I would use this in place of compact fluorescent for outdoor (covered) applications.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for your joints, August 22, 2014
I have received a bottle of this supplement in exchange for this review.

I have been taking Glucosamine for over 10 years to help with hip pain that I noticed when standing up after sitting cross-legged on the floor. The hip pain has disappeared. I do have some smaller joints (fingers and toes) that seem to be getting arthritic - I don't know if this has been delayed or reduced because of the Glucosamine. But my weight-bearing joints are still working fine at age 53.

This formula of Glucosamine uses sulfate as its carrier, which will also include sodium chloride as a stabilizer. So if you are watching your salt intake, be aware of this. The supplement also contains Chondroitin, which really has not been proven to help with joints, and MSM which is unproven as well. I have had success with Glucosamine alone, however it's up to you.

This formula requires 3 pills per serving to get the indicated dose of the ingredients. I like to take 1000-1500mg of Glucosamine a day, so I would have to take 3 or 4 of these pills. I prefer to find a formula that requires less pills, and one that use Glucosamine HCL to limit salt intake. I currently have been taking a Spring Valley formula found at WalMart that is 2 pills per 1500mg. This Number One Nutrition formula will deliver the same Glucosamine, given you take enough pills to get the dosage you want. So I would certainly shop for Glucosamine by price per serving/dosage to get the best value.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works fine - shop by price, August 12, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This version of Tide seems to work OK. I have seen Tide rated #1 in a consumer reports magazine, so that's the brand I have been using anyway. The 'pods' kind of look like large, squishy paintballs that dissolve in water. I toss one in with the laundry and the clothes appear to be as clean as with regular liquid Tide. There is no fragrance smell to the clothes after washing. One thing you cannot do with the pods is rubs a little liquid detergent into stains before washing... not a deal-breaker. I would still find the cheaper version of Tide (per quart/pound) though, knowing that they all clean pretty much the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'black box' for your car -- just in case., July 30, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is the first dash cam I have owned. I see videos on YouTube (mostly from Russia) of highway accidents, meteors, and other phenomena. I think these cameras should be installed by manufacturers as a standard item (and they probably will some day). It's like the 'black box' in airplanes; it's hidden and not really used unless there is a problem, and then it's invaluable.

This Thinkware cam installs with foam tape on a plastic mount. You can easily remove the cam from the mount and unplug the mini USB connector if you want to remove it from the car. The only place you can really install it is at the top-middle of the windshield, behind the rearview mirror. The camera lens will only adjust a total 30 degrees or so, which will match what most windshield angles are so that you can point the lens horizontally. Once it's installed and plugged into a 12V receptacle that shuts off when you shut off the car, it operates pretty much as a black box -- out of sight and (mostly) quietly. It does announce "Continuous recording is enabled" after it boots up, but there may be a way to turn the sounds off. The HD video is excellent and the wide-angle lens picks up almost the whole area of the front windshield. The included 16GB micro SD card must be removed from the camera and mounted in a memory card adapter or the provided USB adapter to view video on your PC. The video includes road speed, date/time, and GPS data of your route on a map (cool!).

A couple things I think could be improved: 1) The unit takes about a couple minutes to boot up and start recording once you start the car. By that time, I have already driven to the end of my street... so any accidents that happened in those first few hundred feet would not be recorded. 2) I wish it came with at least 2 plastic mounts. We have two cars, and it would be nice to be able to stick the mounts in both cars and then be able to switch the camera from one car to the other. 3) The camera records sound, but it seems very muted. It might be important to clearly hear what is happening inside the car before/during an accident. 4) It would be nice to be able to either plug a USB cord into the camera to view video, or have a screen on the camera itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whiter and brighter than OEM, July 30, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I replaced the OEM bulbs in my 2007 Camry with these Nighthawks. We were having trouble seeing at night without the high-beams on. I found out that over time, halogen bulbs get dimmer. I replace just one of the bulbs and turned on the headlights to see the difference. The Nighthawk bulb was indeed brighter (because it's new), and the light was less yellow. Since these are still 55W like the old bulbs, I don't expect them to be much brighter, but I think the bluer color helps them appear brighter than stock halogen bulbs. And if your current bulbs are more than 3 years old, simply changing them will increase your ability to see at night. Try these Nighthawks and you will definitely notice a difference in the 'whiteness' and likely brightness as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for students and would-be architects, July 30, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is aimed at the young person who is thinking of maybe pursuing architecture, or perhaps for the student who is completing liberal arts courses and is wondering about what it would take to major in architecture. This book will take you from the very basic questions, like "What does an architect do?" and "Is architecture for me?", to questions of different educational paths and classes that are part of an architecture education, to how to pursue licensing and a career in architecture. Peppered throughout the book are interview Q&As with architecture students and with licensed architects pertinent to each step of the process. I think these are very helpful, because you get a personal experience and opinion from someone who is going through the process now or has graduated and become successful in the field.

My son is interested in architecture and is currently attending community college for required courses. This book will help him determine the path he needs to take to complete his training, with advice and guidance from those who have already been there.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice upgrade from your 'free' earphones, July 21, 2014
I have evaluated several different Brainwavz earphone models. I was given the M1s in exchange for this review.

The first thing I always compare in earphones is how they sound. After all, that's what is most important. These earphones sound slightly better than the Brainwavz Delta IEM, and not as good as Brainwavz S1. They have a little more clarity in the vocals and midrange, but do not have the detail in sounds or 'openness' that the S1s have. I also compared with some Sennheiser CX300s that I have as well. I believe the Sennheisers did beat the M1s for clarity of sound and bass response, but the two were pretty close, and I like the M1 cord better.

What I do like about them is the cord. It's a harder plastic than the Delta rubberized cord, so tangles are almost non-existent. They are also smaller and seem to fit in the ear better because of that. There have been some complaints of them falling apart or other quality issues. I have not had that problem.

I think these earphones are a good upgrade from the $15-30 range earphones as the sound is better and they are light and have a nice cord. Still, if you are a critical listener, I would still spring for the S1s as the sound quality in them is much better than any other Brainwavz earphones I have tried.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Julienne Peeler, July 18, 2014
I am seeing a pattern with some of the products that I am given to review. It appears that some company (probably Chinese) produces a lot of a simple product (a peeler, ice trays, popsicle makers, garlic press, etc) and then offers to print a company name/logo on it and then dumps a ton of them on the market. Then all of the small companies with their names on the product flood Amazon with it and have a price war. This Julienne Peeler can be found on Amazon under quite a few names:

Back to the review -- it works fine. Sometimes, harder produce like carrots can get stuck in the julienne part. But for making 'matchstick' carrots or french fries, this works great and is quick and easy. One thing I would change would be to eliminate the serrated edge on the non-julienne side; I don't think it's necessary. Other than that, it's a handy and durable kitchen tool. Find one on Amazon at the best price or with the most giveaways with it.
