As Mama always said, "Don't gripe about free!"

While this toy won't be winning any awards for its quietness or its strength, it makes up for its shortcomings in plain and simple usability. Even though this was being offered for free, I'd be willing to pay the $13 it's listed for in a heartbeat.

Use

When I first got this vibe out of the package, my first thought was, "Wow, that's . . . well, it's positively silky!" Upon use, I was not disappointed in this regard. What it may lack in quietness or intensity, it makes up for in feel. Don't get me wrong, I like it rough, but every once in a while I crave something soft and simple without any bells and whistles. This is a great solution to that craving. Sleek, simple, and not overbearing in size or texture, this vibe has shouldered its inadequacies with gusto and performs the way it ought to -- and all for my favorite price: free.

Material / Texture

The feeling, as I've said, is one of the silkiest I've yet experienced. Being plastic, it has no smell or taste and is incredibly safe, which is a departure from what I'm used to (most of the products I own so far are jelly and must be used with a condom for maximum safety). For women (or men) who are shy or just beginners to solo play, or perhaps who are sensitive to textures or size, this vibe is a lovely solution or a starting point to a great collection.
    • No odor
    • Rigid
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The name says it all: slimline. Streamlined and smooth, slim (but not too much), and with enough length to satisfy, not to mention the inherent attractiveness of it all, is a welcome change to what I -- and the community at large, I'm sure -- is used to.
    • Beginner
    • Discreet look/design
    • Ergonomic

Functions / Performance / Controls

The control for the vibration is dial-based at the end, and the dial itself is large and easy to spin during usage. Vibrations are situated in the tip of the toy, but they radiate nicely throughout. The vibrations are dynamic.

The noise of this toy may be a problem for some, as it is quite loud; and, even so, it's not incredibly powerful. Though this is the case, with the television on or some music, I wouldn't think you could hear it through a closed door.

As far as being waterproof, there's a rubber ring around the inside of the battery compartment meant to seal out liquids. I haven't submerged it as of yet, but it's perfectly safe in the shower.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

Being waterproof and plastic, this vibe is immensely easy to clean using toy cleaner or soap and warm water. It can be stored virtually anywhere: with your other toys in a case, in a dresser drawer, or even under your pillow. It is unassuming enough to go virtually undetected beneath a pair of socks.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The vibe came packaged in a fitted plastic container, which I suppose you COULD store it in, though it's not the most discreet or appealing option. Inside the battery compartment, there was an insert explaining battery placement, which is really all you need as far as instructions go. There is a low-high indicator graphic on the base of the dial.
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet
    • Very informative
Follow-up commentary
I was surprised by how well this held up under frequent use, especially since it's not the highest quality toy in my box. The vibrations are as strong as they were on day one with the same batteries, and it remains perfectly watertight and velvety. Still an incredibly great value!

    I received this one for free too, but the dial was too sensitive. I'd drop it and it would turn on!
  • Astia
    I've found that after it's gotten wet a few times the dial isn't nearly so sensitive to touch.
