Promising review: "Outstanding look and feel, works and is small. I have probably 15-20 wallets, I'll pick up a newer one if I see a cool concept. This one is one that caught my eye and it is well designed to take your cards and folding money in a slim version that doesn't feel bulky at all. It will be my go to wallet for years to come."
Promising review: "While I've only had these ear buds for a week, i'm really digging them! They connected easily via blue tooth, have a long lasting battery, charge quickly and great clarity. I haven't had a chance to use on a plane or noisy area, but I do notice they definitely reduce ambient noise as i'm getting ready to head out. ..."
Promising review: "I bought this wooden docking station for myself. First impressions are the wood is of great quality and the product itself is stable. I really liked how I can keep all my everyday items organized on here. Will definitely consider this as a gift idea for friends and family!"
Promising review: "I've had a bad back for a few months and nothing Drs. were doing was working. Used this massage tool immediately when it arrived - JUST GREAT! Immediate improvement. Highest quality at very reasonable price. Amazon hit a home run with this one."
Promising review: "Amazing product! I got this for my migraines because I use a hot rice pad and thought this may be better. Man was I right! The massage and heat helped relieve my migraine. My husband loves it as well and said he never knew he needed an eye massager until he used it!"
Promising review: "My 96yr old mother received a new TV, no box tv any more! But the remote had too many small buttons. She had it 4 days and I got a call everyday to fix her tv. So I bought this to simplify her and my life. Delivered the same day I ordered it. Easy set up. Was worried it wouldn't work with a smart tv but was so happy it found a frequency. Excellent."
Promising review: "I bought this item for my patrol unit as the vehicle does not have built-in bluetooth or an auxiliary plug in. This item works very well and the built-in usb plug for device charging is a great addition. It seems to put out a strong signal that is yet to receive any interference. The sound quality is great as well."
Promising review: "I like this product, is easy to use and everything grows. I only used the basil pod that came with it and then I bought the grow anything kit to use my own seeds. So far everything has germinated and is growing without problems."
Promising review: "Plays records with such great sound! Doesn’t matter how old the record is, it plays it like new as long as there’s no scratches in the record itself. The aux cord works well when you plug in your phone for music too."
Promising review: "It is perfect and huge. The connectivity with [A]lexa is fast and so useful. It's fun and fancy to turn it on like that. People can't believe a slow cooker can be smart hehe"
Promising review: "Yea, this tape measure rocks. Finally a digital readout and has inside/outside measure. Works perfectly every time (so far). Old guys like me have trouble reading the hashmarks on a tape so the digital readout is great."
Promising review: "We love to travel but can’t sleep as good in hotel rooms or homes without our fan. We bought this to use and it’s been great. We even use it at home now too. It has a lot of different options for sound, volume control, and timer. We just leave it on all night and turn it off manually in the morning. It’s small and easily portable."
Promising review: "I needed an inexpensive laminator for once in a while use and this has been great. I use it to laminate fishing licenses, insurance cards etc. I also made a TV channel and phone number list for my elderly mother and laminated it so she could have it on her side table. ... "
Promising review: "Bose is amazing and I love this soundlink. You can connect more than one to your device and I love the APP that allows you to play and sync and manage your device. Great sound out of this compact speaker. We purchased the silicon cover and it's equally great. I use this when I'm showering, or in the garage, or even in my office. I love how easily it connects and just really love this purchase."
Promising review: "Got this for my grand daughter who is a nurse. She takes in to work for hot chocolate at night. They all love how hot and frothy it is. it keeps it hot and keeps blending it. she said it is very easy to operate and clean."
