Surrender, Dorothy: Reviews Disclosure

  • This is a review blog, not a personal blog. Marketers send me products for free, and I agree to review them. Sometimes they offer me a small fee for my time. This fee covers my time, but it doesn't buy a positive review. My time is valuable, and there are many other income-producing ways I could spend it. I choose to do reviews because I believe they have value in our culture. I don't review food anymore. I rarely review music. I don't review games unless they are educational. I mostly focus on books (picture and adult), clothing (baby through adult), services, tools, and home improvement items. I don't print the press release. Please do not send me a press release. If I review your product, it might not be favorable. I don't return review products because I don't have an assistant to drive them to the post office and stand in that crazy line. I'm not a big corporation; I'm just a normal person with a limited amount of time. Please, readers, do not be confused: I did not buy anything you are reading about here. I didn't just stumble into Wal-Mart and say, "OMG, I MUST HAVE IT." Somebody sent it to me and asked me to write about it. So I did. I can be reached at

I would love to have one of these for my bedroom television!


Thanks for doing this giveaway!


Thanks for the review - I wanted to mention that there is an app for iOS (iPhone)and android that completely solves the remote issue. It's called "Media Remote" by Sony. I would check it out - it makes the entire experience better.


I have one and its very simple to use. Even your grandmother can connect it to her CRT TV. The only issue I have is programming sometimes freezes up during the streaming but that could be my router. Overall I would give it 3 thumbs up and who wouldn't want to see All in the Family reruns and oldy but goody movies like I married an ax murder.


I would love a smart tv!


This would enable me to watch my latest guilty pleasure, Friday Night Lights while doing laundry! *Yes I know I'm late to the game on that one.


Would love one of these for my old, old TV!


FYI... many game consoles also enable some extent of content streaming. We use the Netflix app on out Wii (good thing, too, because the disc player on our Wii quit working).

Very cool! We have dreams of making Kidlet Cave out of our basement and my grandma has an relic TV that she keeps offering us. Huh. Might have to look into this!


My sister has one of these and I've always been jealous.

I would love one of these. We only have the most basic cable so this would let us watch all those Netflix movies.

I love the simplicity. Easy enough for the kids to work.

This would be perfect for that old tv that I have in the attic. My kids would think it was pretty cool to have an extra tv.

This is the perfect price. I would much prefer to pay for Netflix than upgrade my cable.

I could watch The Lost Boys from 1987.

My husband is getting fed up with our cable company. This might be a great alternative.

I would love to win! This would be great in my new apartment :)

Great review... kind of weird that you can't fastforward or rewind though

Jill L

I guess it does seem strange that it can't fast forward or rewind. I was just excited to think a way to get my movies without paying for cable.

Jill L

I could lay on the couch and watch episode after episode of my favorite shows and not have to see a single commercial!!!
