5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and slick, 22 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Keep Calm Generator (App)
Creation of first new poster to seeing a jpg of it on my laptop < 2 minutes.
Not sure why people can't save - my installation has a download icon, bottom right, when I click on it, I can share or save.
Hint: before rushing to post a negative comment, pause a bit and ask yourself "is it me?" ð
Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great toe protection and fitting, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ankle strap and top fastener make fitting spot on.
I like barefoot shoes - these aren't barefoot, I can't walk with front plant, but because of barefoot experience, I can walk with whole foot plant.
Lovely shoes, as you would expect from a quality company.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but different., 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Doesn't work so well in a side down pointing fitting in a bathroom - it's not transparent, so not as much light can reflect. But having said that, very good lum and hoping that it lasts longer than the last bulb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weather station, kitchen scales and timer - together at last!, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hangs on the wall as a kitchen clock, tells me the outdoors temperature, more convenient than my phone for timing eggs and it can even weigh things.
And because it can only hang in one place, there is no problem with me having to play geotagging/hind and seek when scales have been tidied to a new place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fab fry-up fun, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really is a superb pan.
Using it on a plug in induction hob - pan just fits.
Best even spread of heat I've ever seen in any pan, never mine one as big as this - it's not too heavy either.
Not possible to keep a white pan 100% blemish free :(

1.0 out of 5 stars Has anyone tried firmware vsn 1019.0 dated 1 Nov, 2013 ?, 4 Mar 2014
I really ought to stay clear of this product.
Notice that most reported problems are from a while ago, so most units are probably in landfill/e-waste processing centres by now, but just in case, has anyone tried the latest firmware update from November 2013?
I'm especially interested to see if it fixes the "can't play blu-rays" error.
To find file download, click on the firmware tab - from this link [...] - link has been removed :) to find link go on to the Samsung website; select: support; TV AV; Home cinema; 3D Blu-ray....; HT-D7100....; SELECT; click on downloads and then you can click on firmware - such fun:)
I've unzipped the download, there are 3 text files, none of them discuss what the firmware addresses - I have given this "review" 1 star because Samsung have not documented their changes. *edit* well, not at all places where they should have!
*edit* didn't spot that there is a little question mark on the download page that pops up the firmware revision history in a non-copyable sub-window - had to screen print and MS Document Image OCR it, so a few characters are a bit wonky - the details are not exactly specific about what the "improve specific ..." was - how many times do you actually need to improve disc stability, when blu-ray/CD/DVD standards have not changed since the unit was invented? :)
It looks like Samsung had a real go at fixing this unit - would be sad if they'd fixed the problems after people had given up on it :(
Here are the captured details:

5.0 out of 5 stars Untestable in an unsunny country, 24 May 2013
Hat is a good fit for my big head.
Very sadly I have to report that after owning this hat for a month, here in the south of England, there has not been a single day where the weather has been sunny, so the hat sits next to a new bottle of sun block, both unused.
:(

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for outdoors, 15 May 2013
What a lovely looker!
And not as heavy or bulky as I would have supposed a 13A battery to be.
Took it out on a 37 mile walk last weekend. Needed to have my phone recording a GPS route, running all day.
First problem, as I had expected, was that the soft touch switch had been pressed in transit and so the torch was on.
Then when my phone down to 35% I started to charge it. An hour later went to check my phone and the lead had become disconnected and even worse the micro USB connector was bent. Took a chance bending it back. Managed to get phone charged up again and to record the whole route.
This would be a fabulous device to use on a long train/plane journey, but for outdoors, needs a more positive sliding switch and needs a better quality cable system - I shall be buying a dedicated USB-microUSB cable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Note too bad - more secure than other phone wallet cases, 14 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent quality.
Precision fit.
Easy access to pen.
No camera lens obscure.
No rail season ticket wiping magnets :)
A good design point, compared to other wallet phone cases, is that the presence of the inner bank note holder flap means that this wallet will not exhibit cards and bank notes whilst making a call.
Only annoyance is that the bank note holder is not big enough to hold UK notes e.g. a 20 needs to be folded twice to fit. Once you start folding notes the wallet bulges just enough to make closing difficult and will probably shorten the life of the closing clasp.
With just a few notes, I've had to reduce the number of cards to two.
Just need to change wad acquisition habits of a lifetime and grab less money at the cashpoint.

A good compromise, as I do not want to carry a wallet with such a big phone. And it's about time store loyalty card schemes started appearing on smart phones anyway.
However, the only perfect solution to carrying a wallet and a phone is - carry a wallet and a phone.
