Bracketron Nav-Mat II Ultra Thin Dash Mount by Bracketron
5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 4 Aug 2014
I'm not entirely sure why previous reviewers are saying things on this topple over. They simply don't, and seems to point to incorrect use.

Mine sits perfectly in my car and I can literally pull on the corners and it won't budge at all. I attach my phone to it for GPS navigation and it's been just as sturdy as the window itself - without all of the marks!

My dashboard is relatively curved, so the very corners do stick up a little, but this doesn't bother me too much. If yours is incredibly steep, you might want to think twice as it isn't particularly flexible.

I'm very glad to have found this - it works perfectly, doesn't look out of place (I mostly forget… Read more
Contigo Randolph Autoseal Travel Mug - 470ml - Gun&hellip by Contigo
I've purchased two of these - one for myself and one as a gift. The mug itself is actually really good. The opening system is very clever and means this thing basically won't leak. It also looks great, and keeps drinks hot for a very long time.

Another issue I've found is that if you tilt it too much, because there are two openings (for left- and right-handed use), liquid… Read more
Natural Wood Rectangular Duck Board Bath Mat Set B&hellip by Blue Canyon
3.0 out of 5 stars Acceptable, but basic, 4 Aug 2014
I got this duck board because I'm a little bit of a germaphobe, and I like the idea of a clean, easy-to-wipe duck board more than a bath mat that needs regular washing.

It feels relatively sturdy for the average person, but it doesn't feel particularly high quality - and indeed I stood on a corner oddly and one of the slats broke. It's also, obviously, not as comfortable under foot as a bath mat.

On the plus side, it doesn't become slippery or soaking wet from my experience.
