    Worx GT 2.0

    Not too bad.

    I've had mine for about 4 years now. Not as much power as a gas trimmer but less problems with care, upkeep and starting up. It's also better than the Black & Decker I used to have. I've only had to charge it once every year. The battery I got works great, no defects. I live in the city so this works for me. Don't need too much power, cordless electric is just right. I also have the Worx lawn mower. As for the trimmer, It does take some getting used to. I have two favorite settings. One for up and down trimming for along the sidewalk or curb. Then I move the wheels onto the back section, set it on a sideways angle so I can use it on its wheels, sort of like a mini trimmer along side of bushes or trimming along side of the garage. They make everything look easy on their infomercials. It does take some getting used to, but after a few seasons I'm getting the hang of it. Like I said, it's better than my old trimmer. If you want more power, go for a gas trimmer.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Miracle Bamboo Pillow

    Updated review

    Not too bad after 2 years

    Still boggles the mind how people buy from the infomercial instead of the big box chains. They have better return policies in case you don't like your pillow.

    After 2 years, it takes a lot of fluffing in all different angles to get it just right, but the two that I bought are still comfortable. I've never washed the pillow, don't trust the claims that it'll stay the same as new. I bought pillowcases instead, so I can wash them from time to time. I bought everything with free shipping from Walmart for under $60 and have no regrets. My old pillows went flat well within the first year and had to stack them on top of each other just to equal one fluffy pillow that I have from Miracle Bamboo.

    It has to be fluffed nightly, but well worth it compared to what I used to have. Sorry to hear that they still sell defective pillows that they won't refund.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Bought 2 from Walmart

    Why do people buy from these infomercials? Wait 6 months or so and get it at a big box store. They have better return policies in case you don't like the smell and it's all around cheaper. Pillows weren't meant to be washed. You wouldn't wash your new suit if it was a little stiff would you? If yours are hard and lumpy, you must've panicked and threw it in the wash.

    I bought 2 queen size pillows from Walmart, they did have an odor to them but after airing them out for 2 days, they hardly any smell at all. I also bought 2 extra pillow cases, this way the only thing getting washed will be the pillow cases, not the pillow. Plus I can always put in a scented dryer sheet inside of the pillow case if needed. I paid a total of $64.00 for 2 pillows, 2 covers, tax, and got free shipping included.

    After reading some of the other reviews I think I made a great deal. The pillow fluffed up real good, the smell went away and with the new covers, and the pillows look as clean as ones you see in a hospital. Shop around people but be smart about it. No one likes getting ripped off.

    Lipozene

    Garbage, buy a laxative instead!

    People years ago used laxatives to lose weight. This pill is no different except that it has extra vitamins in it. It does not curb your appetite, boost your energy level or magically burn belly fat. I work out at the gym 4 or 5 daya a week. This is not the solution. Glad I bought the buy one get one free deal at Walmart (bought 4 total) so I didn't get suckered into any automated billing system. A waste of 40 bucks but there are better energy supplements out there. Live and learn people and don't fall for the hype.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Ageless Male Testosterone Booster

    Not worth it

    Thought I'd buy a bottle or two from Walmart because it's cheaper than the website. It did increase sperm count, but it didn't increase stamina, energy or increased libido. I'm sure there are better on the market for increased workouts and better performance in the bedroom. This isn't it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Micro Touch One Razor

    Shower first = better shave.

    Bought this on February 2, 2016 from Walgreens, 10 Dorco blades plus 5 more from Van der Hagen. I've followed instructions on showering beforehand to soften up beard and I take out Dorco blade after each use, rinse off and dry blade, then place Micro Touch upside down to let water dry off properly. Time will tell if this will last. It is China made. I've only used one side of the blade so far and gotten 10 shaves. I'm figuring over 20 shaves from one blade and over 300 total if the Micro Touch doesn't lock up. I will update this a year or two from now.

    Is this the right one for you? Not if you have a heavy beard or shave after 3 days or longer. It also helps if you shower first. Most people are in a rush to get to work. If one eye is open and one eye closed, then don't expect a perfect shave. Not happening, you're cutting with only one blade. You need to stick with the multi blades for ease and comfort. Do the math, 3 or 4 blades will cut better than one blade. There is no such thing as a safe blade, you can get cut up with any of the shavers out there. Now if you want to save money and have the extra time to shower first and clean and dry the Micro Touch, you will be thrilled with your shaver. If you're lazy and in a big hurry, this is not the shaver for you.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    EGO Blower

    Not as good as gas.

    I bought my cordless EGO Blower over the summer, to replace a corded Black & Decker. It definitely has more power than the corded ones out there, plus it's easier to use. The only problem I encountered was putting in the battery properly. It's a good idea to have the front extension off, and use two hands to push in the battery. If the battery doesn't click in place, it won't work. It takes a lot of force to get it right, and only then can you put the front extension back and start using it. It works great for leaves and twigs along the hedges. I also used it to blow snow off the deck. Doesn't work as well when the snow is wet.

    As far as electric blowers go, this one works pretty good. If you want more power, then go for the gas ones. Mine only takes about 20 minutes to charge up, and the charge usually lasts long enough for the job that I do. It's very good for the smaller jobs around the place, with no cords getting in the way.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Shark Rocket Powerhead Vacuum

    Works as advertised

    I usually don't buy from infomercials but did need a new vacuum badly. My old 15 year old electric broom had seen better days so I paid about $291.00 for the Powerhead vacuum, lift away power pod, and allergy accessories. It's like getting two separate machines. One for carpeting and hard floors and another one with the hose accessories for getting those hard to reach spots. The suction on both machines is great. The only problem I had was changing the hard brush and soft brush. It has to be lined up perfectly or it won't spin properly. There's a green light on the Powerhead to let you know if everything is ok, if not you risk overheating your motor. I also had a problem emptying the cup and putting it back in, but after a few tries I'm getting the hang of it. I decided to buy the newest on the market and so far I'm glad I did. I would've bought this at Walmart but they're only selling the older versions of the Shark, Bissell, and Dyson models and they didn't have the extra lift away with the pet & allergy package.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
