5.0 out of 5 stars The industry standard, July 25, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Avery labels are the industry standard. They feed perfectly in any printer. I have printed many thousands of pages of different size Avary labels over the years, and have never had a jam, nis-feed, etc. They print perfectly every time on both laser and ink jet printers. Laser printed labels can be handled immediately without smudging. Ink jet printed labels are best left to dry for a minute or two prior to handling so as to avoid any smearing. They are self adhesive. They are easily lifted off their sheet once printed, and stay wherever you apply them. They can be lifted cleanly off whatever you apply them to if need be. Overall, with labels, the most difficult part of using them is finding a template that will work with your word processor or other software, and will print properly. This is not as trivial as it may sound. If you have ever downloaded label templates and then attempted to print what you thought you just created, you will sometimes be in for a very big surprise.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great concept, but execution is wanting, July 24, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really wanted this to work. I suffer with chronic back, neck, and shoulder problems and excellent posture really helps my symptoms. This small device attaches to your clothing, using either a clip or a magnetic attachment, and sits right below your collar bone. Some sensors in the device sense angle changes and can tell when your posture is less than optimal. Therein lies the problem. When I intentionally slouched to try and trigger an alert, I could not do so predictably. Sometimes it worked as advertised, other times with identical body movements by me, nothing.

The activity tracker is less than what I already have on my iPhone, so that is basically a wash. The downloadable app that makes this gadget work with your iPhone is not particularly intuitive or user friendly. I'll give it some more time, but my initial impression is to call the software "fair."

Overall, this device holds great promise, but the execution is lacking at this juncture. Based on my experience, if a device like this interests you, I would skip this version and wait for the successor.

Remington PR1285A R8 WetTech Lithium Rotary Shaver, Blue
Remington PR1285A R8 WetTech Lithium Rotary Shaver, Blue
Price: $59.97

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb quality electric shaver, July 23, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Lightweight and comfortable in the hand. I charged it overnight, then shaved with it, then let it run until it stopped. Battery time was 72 minutes. I think Remington claims 60 minutes, so my experience was about 20% better. The 3 rotary shavings heads pivot freely. The razor is waterproof so it can be used in the shower (wet) or anywhere else (dry). The heads pop up for easy cleaning. Unlike some electric shavers, this one collects all the shaved hairs inside the top, so they don't go flying all over (like the Panasonic shavers) until you pop the head up to clean it. There is a pop up trimmer and a battery indicator. Both are pretty much standard on all electric razors in this price range. The build quality is solid. Looks like this thing is built to last. I have not priced replacement blades, but I'm sure this original set will last quite a while.


Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win
Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win
by Leif Babin
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $19.88

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your mama's leadership manual, July 22, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If you enjoy stories about the military, especially Navy SEALs, you will love this book. If not, don't even bother picking up this book. The co-authors are a couple of very dynamic and super sharp guys. They have left the military and are both businessmen, and in addition train others in the art of leadership, SEAL style. SEALs lead from the front. This means by example. Each leadership lesson is prefaced by a vignette regarding the first hand reporting of an Iraqi SEAL Team operation. They bring the battlefield to the boardroom, and train you to win. The name of the SEAL unit they use for their illustrations is Task Unit Bruiser. If you are interested in seeing how SEAL battlefield leadership can be applied to everyday American business situations, this book will make a nice addition to your management library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent choice in a slow cooker (multi-cooker), July 16, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have a slow cooker that probably came over on the Mayflower. It had 2 settings, High and Low. This unit has actual temperature settings. They go up to 450 degrees. It can brown meat before you slow cook it. It also has a "Warm" setting to keep your delicious meals warm until you are ready to enjoy it. The interior is ceramic. It is dishwasher safe as is the glass lid. At 6.5 quarts, this thing will cook most recipes intended for a single person up to a medium sized family. The glass lid handle has a silicone coating, making it easy to remove even when hot. No more burned fingers. This machine is very versatile and capable. It's a keeper!


Bissell SpotClean Cordless Portable Spot Cleaner, 1570
Bissell SpotClean Cordless Portable Spot Cleaner, 1570
Price: $149.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Bissell has a winner here., July 16, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This thing is awesome. It works just like most other carpet cleaners. One container for the clean water and one for the sucked up dirty water. It has a rechargeable battery. One charge lasts almost 20 minutes. I used it in the car and in the house, and it worked very well. Remember, this machine is not meant for shampooing all the carpet in your house, car, office, etc. It is intended for spot cleaning, and it performs very well at its designed task. It has a built in carry handle and is easy to transport. It is made out of plastic, so don't drop it down the stairs. If you have carpet, plus kids or pets, this thing will definitely come in very handy. Not just a gadget, but a bona fide useful household cleaning machine. It comes with a couple attachments that are actually useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes short work of most ironing chores, July 16, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I hate ironing, but this iron makes it way more tolerable. It is lightweight, and feels very comfortable in the hand. The cord is plenty long enough, but not stupid long. This iron makes steam like crazy when you want it to (which is a good thing in the ironing business). It has independent steam and temperature controls. And, it has a 3 way auto shut off (to help you not burn your house down). If you gotta iron, I would definitely include this iron on your short list of considerations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent portable hard drive case for a great price., July 16, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This thing is great. It fits my portable hard drive perfectly. It affords excellent protection from scrapes, bumps, etc. The zipper is heavy duty. It is attractive and looks like it is made to last. And the price is very reasonable. What's not to like?

5.0 out of 5 stars Robustly constructed. Works perfectly., July 14, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I don't know about you, but I go through at least 2 of these iPhone charger cables a year. An electronics expert told be the small wires inside the plastic insulation eventually flex enough so that one or more of them breaks, rendering the charging cable useless. The theoretical advantage of flat cables (like this one), is that the stresses applied to the small wires are less and the risk of wire breakage is less. Longevity should be greater. This cable is 4 feet long. Not too long, and not too short. The OEM cable Apple supplies with the phone is shorter than 4 feet. This Belkin cable is robustly built and works perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple to install. Very convenient. Love the convenience of keyless entry!, July 11, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The instructions were very clear. Installation was very simple and took less than 10 minutes. Programming was straight forward. The keyless entry is very convenient. No more lost keys. Plus, if you need to eliminate someone's access to the locked area, it is a very simple matter to eliminate their code. And, if you need to grant temporary access to a contractor or something, it becomes a simple matter, and you can eliminate their access when the job is completed. The finish seems to be high quality and durable. Time will tell. The re-key feature is another plus, but I have not utilized it yet, so I cannot comment on its ease.
