Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fernbark Works good
This is a handy way to get some seeds started. This tray was less expensive the a smaller tray and refills so I only used about a third of the seed holders and will use the rest later.
It is really easy to use, but I don't know about the "professional" designation. I would imagine the professional model might have a lid that fit the base correctly and more than six labels. But it is pretty inexpensive.

This product has been my staple project every spring. There is no other way to make so many seeds, so quickly, and for such a little amount of money! The soil is fertile and works wonderfully for seed starting.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ElderJim Useful but limited Plant Starter kit
This kit can be useful, but read descriptions carefully and know what you are purchasing. The peat pellets in this product are very small, so its best use is as a starter tray, when you are planning to move seedlings to larger peat pots to continue developing before actually transplanting into your garden. It seems good for very tiny seeds like herbs. The tray and dome are rather flimsy plastic, so the designation of "professional" is a bit misleading. A handy and fun use would be for classroom projects where each student has a pellet or two, and kids can watch seeds germinate and grow over time, then take their plants home at project's end.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wishuponadish Should have bought this sooner....
I needed a way to start my staggered beet plantings of every two weeks, that woukd be easy to transfer to the final container. This system was so efficient, I changed my plantng day to one week from the two it wound usually take for germination. Each pod produced a seedling and in half the time. The plastic container is strong, and even during a storm, secured the pods. Next year I will start my garden from seed at so much less than half the price I usually pay the garden center for theirs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dangle WORKED GREAT.
No problems with adding water to expand them to planting seeds. Let sit in recommended amount of water for 1/2 hour. was sure to add water to each row. After expanded, loosened / mixed soil in tiny "pot" with tiny spoon. seeds germinated quickly. three seeds did not grow (old seeds) all other come up. Before planting in larger pot, soaked each with water, dug hole same size as tiny "pot", used plastic knife to cut and peel off mesh, worked great. would buy again.

Very easy to use. The soil pops right up and was very easy to fluff and seed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JohnM It works for brown thumbs
Easy and simple to use. Just follow the instructions for the starter kit and the seeds that are being used (more attention to the seed instructions is required). Good daddy/daughter (5yrs old) for bonding. Thanks

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Liz Did not sprout!!
I unwrapped this starter kit the last week of April. I took care of it but no plant ever sprouted. It is now June and nothing ever occurred. Big letdown!!!
