GEEPET Self Cleaning Slicker Brush for Dogs and Cats

Standard

GEEPET Self Cleaning Slicker Brush for Dogs and Cats – Easy to Clean Pet Grooming Brush Removes Mats, Tangles, and Loose Hair with Minimal Effort and Comfort – Suitable for Long or Short Hair

With four cats who have a variety of lengths of fur and tolerances for grooming, an easy to use, comfortable, and easy to clean brush is a must have tool. My most picky cat when it comes to being brushed is our male Bengal. The second I started using this brush on him he laid down and stretched out. Usually he tries to run as soon as I start brushing him, so this brush must feel good on his skin.

The feature I love the most about this brush is that it is incredibly easy to clean. At the press of a button the bristles retract allowing you to slide your hand across it and pull up all of the hair. With the number of cats I have, this feature comes in very handy.

Pros:

  1. Cats like it
  2. Easy to Clean/Self-cleaning

Cons:

  1. A little bit too big, should have gotten smaller model

Fingerless Gloves Short Sleeve Crochet Arm Warmers Knitting Pattern Winter Gloves For Women and Girls (Red)

Fingerless Gloves Short Sleeve Crochet Arm Warmers Knitting Pattern Winter Gloves For Women and Girls (Red)

These have been my goto gloves this winter. These gloves are both practical and stylish. They do an excellent job at keeping my hands warm and they go along well with quite a few different outfits.

A few threads have come loose already, which is probably due to how much I have worn them. These gloves are a much darker red than the pictures show, which is actually not a bad thing because the darker color goes better with most outfits.

Pros:
1. Knitted material keeps hands warm
2. Stylish & goes well with most outfits

Cons:
1. Threads are already coming loose
2. Color different from pictures (darker red)

FENIFOX Wireless Keyboard with Multi-Touch Touchpad Whisper-Quiet Typing and Ultra Slim Compact for PC Tablet Windows (White)

The Fenifox wireless keyboard is a basic wireless keyboard with a touchpad. It works well and has some neat features especially with the touchpad, as different gestures replicate certain mouse functions. I have two primary complaints with this keyboard. The first is that the instructions that came with it are printed in a tiny font size making them incredibly difficult to read. My second complaint is that the keyboard doesn’t always work immediately when the usb dongle is plugged into a new device. The instructions do not explain what to do if this occurs, however by contacting the seller I was provided with the following solution: turn off keyboard, unplug USB receiver, plug in USB receiver, press and hold FN and Backspace at the same time and turn on keyboard.

Pros:
1. Gestures on touchpad add more functionality
2. Lightweight and Thin

Cons:
1. Instructions are difficult to read
2. Does not always connect when moved to new device.

LG Google Nexus 5X Screen Protector , Shalwinn [2 PACK] HD Clear Tempered Glass Screen Protector

Standard

LG Google Nexus 5X Screen Protector , Shalwinn [2 PACK] HD Clear Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Google LG Nexus 5X


The strong point with this set of screen protectors has to be the product packaging. The container they came in provides essential protection and has to be one of the best I have seen … AND I have seen many different brands of screen protectors as the owner of a small smartphone and tablet repair business.

The screen protector was easy to apply and fit correctly on my Nexus 5X screen. It is made of tempered glass so it is thick. It has a glossy finish, but this does not create too much of a glare. 

Unfortunately shortly after applying the screen protector, I dropped my phone on a hard surface. The good part is it along with my phone case prevented damage to my phone screen. The bad part was that the screen protector cracked during impact. It is only a hairline crack and has not interfered with the functionality of the touch screen at all. Since the crack is only visible at certain angles, I have left it on my phone which has provided me with an opportunity to test how well it works, even when slightly damaged. I applied the screen protector to my phone in early October and damaged it around mid to late October. It is now early December and I have not replaced it with the second screen protector yet.

The upper corners of the screen protector are already beginning to peel away from the phone’s screen, which is a bit disappointing, especially because I do not believe that this has any relation to the crack and is just a sign of wear and tear. I had hoped the screen protector would have remained well adhered to the screen for a bit longer than two months. Of course until I test out the additional screen protector, I won’t be able to say for sure whether or not this is completely unrelated to the damage it sustained when I dropped my phone. 

All and all these seem to be decent screen protectors and they certainly have done what they were designed to do by protecting the screen on my Nexus 5X phone and saving me from the extra costs that I would have incurred had my phone screen been cracked instead of the screen protector.

Pros:

  1. Does exactly what it is supposed to do
  2. Product packaging ensures safe storage of the screen protector
  3. Fits  correctly on my Nexus 5X screen
  4. Operation of phone not impacted even with cracked screen protector

Cons:

  1. Corners peeling away from screen after only two months
  2. Screen protector cracked after dropping phone (a con only because I am unsure whether or not it should have withstood being dropped)

 Aicheson Ultra Slim Laptop Cooling Pad Chill Mat

Standard

Laptop Cooler, Aicheson Ultra Slim Laptop Cooling Pad Chill Mat with 2 Heavy Duty Quiet Fans USB Powered with LED Lights

The Aicheson Laptop Cooler works very well and runs quietly. The blue lights are both aesthetically pleasing and let you know that cooler is working. It is powered through a USB connection to the laptop is what powers the laptop cooler. The nice thing about the USB connector on this laptop cooler is that it has both a USB In and USB Out connection on it, so it does not fully tie up the USB port that it plugs into the laptop. 

There are two major downsides of this laptop cooler. The first is that it is not very wide, so the laptops we own don’t fit completely on the cooler. This isn’t a major issue as the laptops still benefit from its use. The second issue is that the kickstands/legs are not very sturdy, don’t lock in place, and have a tendency to collapse.

Pros:

  1. Nice looking with aesthetically pleasing blue lights
  2. Runs quietly
  3. USB Connector has In and Out connections, so the computer USB port is not tied up

Cons:

  1. Not wide and works best with smaller laptops
  2. Kickstands are not sturdy and collapse very easily

    Adfilic Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

    Standard

    Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, Flash SALE, Cheap Powerful Top Boombox Stereo Rated Sound, Sony Portable, Works Best For iPhone, iPad, Samsung, Great for Outdoors, HD Bose Bass, Car Hands Free – Black

    At only 4.5 x 2.5 x 2.3 inches, the Adfilic Bluetooth Speaker is very small. Despite the small size of this speaker, it produces a surprisingly rich and full sound. We have another bluetooth speaker that is about twice the size of this speaker, so you would assume it would produce louder and clearer sounds. However this is not the case. The small size of the Adfilic Bluetooth Speaker makes it easy to travel with and very portable. It can easily fit in a purse or pocket.

    In testing this product, I played a large range of music styles and all of the music sounded great playing through the speaker. Connecting it to a device via bluetooth was very easily accomplished. Though I doubt I will utilize this feature, the speaker does have a built in FM Radio which works relatively well. The instructions were easy to follow. The only major difficulty I encountered was in adjusting the volume of the speaker. You have to hold down a button to raise or lower the volume and the button choices are not overly intuitive.

    I am incredibly impressed with this speaker. Both the size and price of the speaker would lead you to believe that it wouldn’t have very good sound quality. I was in fact very skeptical when purchasing this speaker, but I shouldn’t have been because it is a really impressive device.

    Pros:

    1. Small Size
    2. High Quality Sound for Speaker Size
    3. Excellent Volume Range

    Cons:

    1. Volume adjustment not intuitive or easy to perform
    2. Button labels are confusing

    I still like the Google Cardboard Kit & Device, but I did want to point out one major risk with it. While using the device, I managed to poke myself in the eye with one of the sharp corners and ended up scratching my cornea. I was lucky that I did not end up with an infection from that scratch and that healed up rather quickly. It’s certainly not a risk I would have thought of with using the device, but now that it has happened to me it makes sense. Anything you can put near your eyes can be a danger to them. What does surprise me is that the kit makes no mention of potential injuries that can occur to the eye.

    Would I revise my review of this kit? Yes absolutely, simply because injuring myself was way to easy. I can also see why Google is moving away from the Google Cardboard Device. It is a very clever, low cost, virtual reality device, but there are risks when using it that would not manifest with something constructed of a different material.
