It has been the best two months of my life
For 25 years I have helped my husband look for his wallet. EVERY DAY. No matter what system I tried to introduce him to, what basket was on the counter just for his wallet...was a dismal failure. EVERY DAY FOR 25 YEARS. I gave this tile to him for Christmas. It has been the best two months of my life.

Doesn't Really Work
As a college student who keeps most of their valuables on a lanyard, having some way to locate all of those valuables is important. Last October, I lost the keys to my dorm, and after forking over an absurd amount of money for a set of replacement keys, I swore that I would do whatever I could in my power to prevent another loss like that from occurring again.
According to countless reviews online, the Tile was the best option for keeping track of my lanyard. At first, it went well; I didn't really lose my keys so I'd use the tile a few times a month to make sure that everything was in working order. And it was spotty; sometimes, when the tile was right next to me, it'd take minutes for the app to locate the tile and ring. But, I brushed it off, because it would work eventually.
That was until I had actually lost my keys and my lanyard. I spent a whole day running around looking for them, but to no avail. According to the Tile App, there were a few thousand Tile users around, able to find my device if they stumbled near it. But, absolutely nothing. In the end, I found my device (I had left it with a friend) and went to go pick it up. Afterwards, I had the Tile in hand and I wanted to know if it was actually working properly. I set the Tile to ring from my phone, and nothing. No sound at all. To clarify, the Tile claims it has a lifespan of 12 months, give or take a few. But, it's been only 4 months and the Tile is having problems. I'm disappointed with the product due to its spotty reliability, and I don't plan on buying from Tile again.

Stopped working after 2-3 months; company will not allow returns. Waste of $50.
At first, I was so happy with this product, helping me find misplaced keys and cell phone in my family's busy home. However, the Tiles rapidly began to be less effective. Sometimes pressing the Tiles would not make the phone ring, even when they were only a foot or two away. Now all four Tiles are completely useless and do not work, even though I have had them for just 3 months. Unfairly, this is past the time allowed in the company's return policy. Waste of $50. Really liked the Tiles initially but expected them to last longer than this.

After three months of not even using the tile the battery died. I tried to contact customer support and was told that it was working the way it was supposed to. It didn't work it didn't locate anything it was attached to and all it was good for was an additive to my keychain. Could someone from customer support please contact me if they see this or just replace my dead tile?

Panic inducing garbage
These things are garbage. I put these on some valuable items including the carrying case for some expensive camera equipment.
After working correctly (or at least seeming to) for a few months I received a warning notice that several of my items--including the camera gear--had moved while I was away on a business trip. The "TILE community" had "located them" about 5 miles away from my house as shown on the app's map. Nobody had access to my home so I feared the worst--a break in at my house while I was gone!
I returned home from my trip to to find my items still at home right where I left them...and obviously nobody had broken into my home.
This happened several times, each time inducing panic but also each time causing me to trust the TILE product less and less. Again, each time my stuff was "found" by the community 5 miles away from my house it had never actually moved in the first place.
These things have proven themselves to be little more than a very expensive novelty and should be avoided unless you like throwing cash down the toilet.

I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a cat GPS that looked way too big for a cats neck. I adopted a new cat and was afraid he might wander too far. I can track him while I'm at home and make sure he stays in the area. If he goes out of range, I can walk the neighborhood and find him.

Tile button placement
I absolutely loved the original tile...the new style sucks and is defective in style as the button constantly gets pushed while keys are in your pocket since they moved it to the center of the tile instead of the corner of the tile. If I could return it I would, worst purchase ever!

Love it! This little device has been very helpful in the "oh no I'm late, wait, WHERE ARE MY KEEEYYYSSS!!?!?!" moments of life. Lol. The song is actually very nice and not annoying like some other mainstream ringtones. The tracking is cool and I all appreciate the reverse find for times when I'm home and the keys are in their place but I can't find my phone. Smh. The tile allows me to ring the phone as well which is a nice back up if you don't have an iPad or something available to use the find my iPhone app. All in all, great product and I'm sure I will be buying more.

I had the original tile and was much more pleased with that one then this new version. I have had trouble with mine and with the one I have given my father. It doesn't seem to connect the the object as well as the last version

Attached to an expensive key that i had previously lost & found. Figure Tile would make it easier to find key next time. Unfortunately lost key again & Tile will only show general area of where key was last known. Key is lost & Tile not responding
