4.0 out of 5 stars Easy retrofit installation, August 14, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I replaced a "country-style" white painted fan in our master bedroom with this more modern looking fan unit. The old one even had heart-shaped cut-outs in it... This Westinghouse Bocca fan looks to be of good quality, of modern appearance, and installed quite easily. The remote control is a bonus, and much tidier than the pull cords of the old fan. The integrated LED light is a bit dimmer than I would have liked and doesn't look to be upgrade-able at all. Normal screw in bulb holder (or two) would have been more flexible, but might have hurt the sleek lines of the fan's design.


Semolina Artisanal Pasta Organic Rigatoni

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good pasta, August 14, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Cooked up al dente, and tasted most excellent with roasted heirloom tomatoes and Italian sausage. The pasta tasted great (tried a couple of pieces before the sauce as well), is made from organic US-grown durum wheat as well. Good quality product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, elegant earrings, August 7, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The balls at the bottom look to be stainless steel, less pearl-like in person than in the photo. The plated silver chains are about an inch long. They have a really nice swing and bounce while being worn. Very elegant, simple presentation. Comes in a very nice (ready to gift) gift box.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality 15A computer power cord, August 7, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Not cheap, but solid heavy duty computer power cord for C19 socket on the computer end. Normal NEMA plug for the wall end. Exactly 10 foot along (unlike a lot of cables which are actually metric and sold by the approximate length). Works well in my server rack application.

New Wave Enviro Boho 1 Porcelain Water Dispenser, 2.5 gallon

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice looking (lead-free) porcelain water dispenser without a lid, August 7, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As others have noted, the photo is hard to interpret. The actual dispenser looks good. It's heavy, solid with an attractive pattern on the front. The fittings are a bit of a let-down though. The spout looks to be a weak spot, and I doubt that it will last as well as the rest of the dispenser. Also the plastic protective ring for the top of the ceramic doesn't quite fit right. I've been thinking about cementing it into place. There is no lid included for the dispenser.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very lightweight, simple bag that tries to be elegant, but doesn't look to be too practical, August 7, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I don't think the padding is sufficient to use this as a normal, all-day, carry bag for a laptop. The bag is stylish, and extremely light. It folds up nicely and I think I'll be using this as a spare bag. Take it with you on a trip as a day bag that will work fine for shopping, a few books, and even the laptop for a bit. But I wouldn't throw my laptop in this bag in the overhead of an airplane for example. And if you add a sleeve? Maybe, but the weight is headed up towards other, more traditional, bags I'd think then. The look is good though, sleek, relatively small bag. The price is a bit silly for a couple of layers of nylon though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different sort of board game from the Settlers of Catan folks, August 3, 2016
This review is from: Smugglers Family Board Game (Toy)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I do not have a super-broad knowledge of European-style board games, so this one definitely looked like something quite different to me. You hide treasures in balls of putty, roll them down a slide, through a hole, and if you aren't successful, others can loot the treasures you have hidden. Quite simple, and very easy to learn.

The game is made up of high quality parts, punched out board markers, small plastic treasure jewels, plastic and board slide and hole mask, and instructions illustrated with cartoons. We had a four person family group playing and it was quite fun. Play time was around 45 minutes including some chatting about the rules to get started.

Not completely sure about long-term replayability of the game. It seems as though there's not a lot of complexity and we'd get tired of it pretty quickly, but we'll see... We probably have enough games so that this one will only come out six months from now and will be great to play again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super-fun!, July 31, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I think in the end that this is a toy, and in the best of hands an artistic toy, but not quite a tool. You're going to make 3d sketches and better and better little blue dogs, but you're not going to make a knob for an old oscilloscope. For what it is, it's a very cool device, a small scale hot glue gun with PLA and ABS plastic choices and a huge variety of available colors. But it's expensive. This could be a $25 item once the excitement cools a bit from the newness and the "hey, it's sort of like a 3d printer." But I am sticking with my five star review, it's a crazy fun toy that I enjoyed playing with, that my daughter enjoyed playing with, and that I'm going to have to find more "ink" for very soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splits wood better than my old hammer plus wedge, July 31, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
In fact it splits wood just fantastically well. The anti-shock features of the handle-head connection aren't obvious on each individual strike, but they add up. Previously I would stop splitting wood when my arms were all tingly and unhappy from the impacts. With this maul, my shoulders get sore and tired first. I'm guessing that that is a better result for my body. Anyway, Fiskars tools are generally really well made and they have a lifetime warranty. Years ago had a Fiskars rake that bent, and also a pair of garden scissors that started to wear from use, replaced no questions asked. I wouldn't advocate strongly in general for brand loyalties but Fiskars stuff is good quality and if it wears more than you think it should, or has an issue, they will stand behind and replace as needed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast and fun card game, July 26, 2016
This review is from: Fast Flip Card Game (Toy)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fruit (strawberries, oranges, raspberries, pineapples, and bananas) version of Spot It, but still a fun variant. There is also a built-in variant using tokens (included). A mixed group of adults and teenagers enjoyed the game. For repeat play, this is probably more of child's game though. It is quite simple and seems like it would be exhausted quickly.
