Great headphones

17 Jan, 2019
  These Active Noise Cancelling Headphones with Microphone are great. They last a long time on charge, fold up nicely and fit in the carrying bag provided. I got them so I could use them in th... more »

nice light

17 Jan, 2019
A bit small, this lamp still packs a bright light with a next that can be adjusted to provide light in the right direction. I was hoping it would be a bit taller, but it works just fine stretched out.... more »

Yes, the price tag is a bit steep, however, this lamp lights up more than 3 lamps used to. So Im saving electricity between the LED and lack of other lights. My favorite part is that there's a rem... more »

Great smart outlet

17 Jan, 2019
I got these "Smart WiFi Outlet Plug Mini Smart Socket " from Floreon. They work well with Alexa. Once I downloaded the app, and paired these with it I just had to set it up through the... more »

bulky but works

17 Jan, 2019
The only problem I really have with this smart plug is the size. I didnt realize that by using it, I would either need to cover a whole outlet, or get a power stripo that has rotatable outlets in it.&... more »

small but sturdy

06 Nov, 2018
Its a nice hamber, but its a little smaller than I thought it would be. The narrow build makes it great for fitting between a cabinet and the wall, or the washer like Ive done.    I wi... more »

Look almost too real!

My neighbors thought I had a fire in my side yard because of the LED Solar Torch. They really do look like little torches. I mean, the product description says, "charming and classical appea... more »

Good little headphones

I got these headphones and was surprised by how comfortable they are, and how good they sound. I really didn't think that they would be as clear as they are. The noise coming out is clear and... more »

Good drive, bad shape

10 Sep, 2018
I like this drive. The fact that it works flawlessly with my iphone and the app it requires is great. However, the design of the drive itself isn't helpful to anyone who uses an actual case.&... more »

best braided line I have

10 Sep, 2018
This stuff is amazing. My only gripe is, it's hard to cut off the ends after tying a knot.    I took it in the pond behind work and I had no problem pulling out pike after pik... more »

Great headphones, bluetooth is meh

10 Sep, 2018
The sound quality from these headphones is amazing. I use them at work to completely cut out my co-workers and their noise. I can attest the noise canceling cuts out talking, chewing, phones ringing,... more »

Needs more than 6 stars

10 Sep, 2018
This jump starter is a lifesaver. A friend of mine got a car and it needed a new battery. I offered him this to use while he was waiting to buy one. He used it 25 times in a week and it didn't nee... more »

Great mp3 player

10 Sep, 2018
Im currently using this in my car. I load it up with music, plug in an aux cable and skip the radio. Since my car is a 2009, it doesn't have the Bluetooth to my phone... and honestl... more »

1 year and going strong

Great lures

This is a great pack of 5 lures. The hooks are solid and sharp. The colors are true to the picture and they go through the water like they should. Theres enough weight to them that they cast well... more »

Great bladder

I won't lie. I'm not using this for water. It will be used for taking mixed drinks tubing with us on the river this summer. It holds liquid well, you can fit some ice in and in my testing... more »

awesome mats, cheap price

02 May, 2018
These floor mats are as good if not better than the $60-$100 ones I see out there. They're heavy duty, have a nice lip on them and flex to fix the vehicle. I put them in my 2009 Impala and they wo... more »

Cat liked them for a few days

02 May, 2018
The cat was in love right out of the box. The only issue was the appeal wore off as the smell wore off. To compensate, I bought liquid catnip.    The seams held up fine. And theyre&nbs... more »

Good magnets, crappy fit

02 May, 2018
These had promise, but they don't look natural at all when used. I tried each pair, and then let me daugh6ter try. We even tried trimming them to make them work. They were extremely long and unfla... more »

nice set, doesnt stick

10 Apr, 2018
Try as I might, I seriously can't get this set to stick without falling backl off. The lights work, change colors, and are nice and bright. Problem is that they dont stay put where you s... more »

A great product

10 Apr, 2018
This is a great art set. Not too high end, not for beginners. I think its a bit pricey for what you get in the box though. If there were bigger tubes or the brushes were higher quality, I could unders... more »

Why use matte photo paper? Matte Finish Photo with matte finish is always smooth and non-glare on the surface. Lower- contrast but enhanced texture print. Fingerprints are not as visible. This s... more »

cheap cables are a go

12 Jan, 2018
For as long as I can remember, I've championed cheap cables. Fifty bucks for six feet of HDMI cord?! Don't be silly; the $5 jobs are just as good. Same goes for optical, Ethernet, Micro-U... more »

amazing charger

08 Jan, 2018
This power bank could charge more than two cell phones simultaneously, and very easy to carry. Yes it is slightly heavy, but for the ability to charge the phone so many times, it's to be expected.... more »

Great lights

07 Jan, 2018
These lights are great to string out and leave in the trees or on a patio to have some extra lighting for no electric charge. They last a good 6 hours with adequate sun. Well worth the investment in m... more »

warm, but shoddy stitching

These are nice leggings except for some of the stitching. Mine busted apart in my calf. Not even in the thighs where one would think... nope, there was apparently a missed stitch and the seam came rig... more »

Yep, it projects

15 Dec, 2017
It projects the images, but I had one hell of a time getting it to stay in focus. I guess thats my own issue, but still, if youre going to use this, try it out in warmer weather to see where... more »

Awesome carrier

15 Dec, 2017
this thing is perfect for a cat or a small dog. Im sure with enough effort one could escape because its soft sided, but as long as theyre in your sight when in use, its nice. Fold up great f... more »

vaccuum sealed!

15 Dec, 2017
the best part about these socks is that they came vacuum sealed. Which means I can leave them in the pack and use them after I get soaked from being outdoors. Pretty cool idea. Since I havent ope... more »

Probably the BEST sleeping bag ever

Awesome stand

Fits the markers, helps me see what colors I have, and is pretty darn sturdy. I am impressed by the plastic grade on this. it also fits other markers as well, though not AS well as the holes are squar... more »

One caveat...

.... there's no place to put an sd card in. Most other speakers I have have a slot just for that, do you can simply use the speaker on its own. If this had that it would be the perfect speaker./&n... more »

Wish I had another!

07 Nov, 2017
This thing is great. 2 problems though. 1. It's ot big enough to heat my whole body, so in colder months Im going to need more than 1. And #2... the instructions aren't well written,... more »

painful at first

Perfect for love birds

Not as good as I thought

27 Oct, 2017
I really thought this case was going to be of higher quality. Especially at the $15 price point. It feels like cheap plastic and doesn't fit quite right on the iphone 6 or 6s.  The fl... more »

Can I give this more stars?

20 Oct, 2017
These are probably the BEST markers for the price. I honestly thought that these would be crap and dry out. So, I waited to review. Ive done about 25 signs, 3 coloring books, and some drawings fo... more »

Smells bad, but is great looking

20 Oct, 2017
Seriously, this mask is probably one of the smelliest I've dealt with in a long time. I know they all have that odor, but I could smell this from outside the bag even.    Once it a... more »

Nice heavy duty cat toy

20 Oct, 2017
I read the description which is worded poorly in English, and looked at the materials they listed. I'm actually impressed with this. I figured it would be more like cardboard covered in a thi... more »

Bright compact light

This small light is one of the brightest LED lights I have. I use it on the right hand corner of my 125 gallon tank to brighten up the patch of thick plants I have growing.  more »

My new favorite bucket

29 Sep, 2017
This is probably the best bucket Ive ever had for doing water changes, storing plants while I clean the tank, and for moving fry. Since it folds flat, it takes up no room at all when I'm not... more »

Good food, a little pricey

20 Sep, 2017
Its great food that my fish love. It just seems to be a little pricey for the amount. Now, it very well might not be true, and Im just used to feeding my fish lower quality food that's cheaper. I... more »

Great laser pointer

20 Sep, 2017
Im not gonna lie. I got this because its rechargable and I have 2 dogs that go apeshit over laser pointers. The thing is, between batteries and new cheap pointers from the dollar store, I could have b... more »

Better than before

Good color, but not the easiest to apply

14 Sep, 2017
I thought this was more of a cream based color set when I purchased. It seems to me that its more of a watercolor style paint. Which is fine, if you know how to use that style paint. Im not very... more »

Surprisingly useful

14 Sep, 2017
I got this sealer because I thought for the price, it will either be awesome, or really suck. Well, it doesn't suck... or I guess, it really DOES suck. In a vacuum sort of way that is.  &n... more »

Nice jar, doesn't light up

I'm sure I got a defective one since no matter how many times I flick the switch, the light doesn't come on. Besides that, it's a nice little jar that is good for a small aquatic plan... more »

Sturdy, colorful and lightweight

Parrot Perch

10 feet of greatness

27 Jul, 2017
This cable is 10 feet. Why that long? Because I hate being stuck to an outlet to do something when I need to charge. I can sit on the bed, lay on the floor, sit on the couch. The ends are strong and i... more »

Amazing

27 Jul, 2017
This is probably one of the best car chargers Ive used. Dual ports that are fast is an essential thing in my opinion. Having a fast one and a slow one is the worst. With both of these ports being... more »
