Pilot Frixion Erasable Rollerball Pack of 3 - Black
Pilot Frixion Erasable Rollerball Pack of 3 - Black
Price: £3.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than pencil, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's an interesting concept and I think it works better than a pencil in every aspect: when erased leaves fewer marks and looks like any other ink. I just wish the pens themselves weren't so ugly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sticks well and doesn't leave marks, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It sticks well and doesn't leave marks. I use it tape cables on floors, tables, and sometimes even the devices themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought about 15 of these as gifts and got very good feedback. They work fast and even though they seem fragile I haven't heard of any of them breaking so far.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fragile USB3 cable, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Otherwise this case is fine but since I had problems with my motherboards I ended up connecting and disconnecting the cables repeatedly. The USB3 cable that connects the front ports didn't take this well. The plug broke up and when it did I could see why: it was held together by a small piece of plastic. Once it broke the pins started coming out.

The case is not particularly silent nor noisy either. The build seems good and strong except for the cable (or cables?) of course.

1.0 out of 5 stars Two of these dead on arrival, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After connecting everything my display couldn't get a signal. I tried switching the processor, memory, graphics card and disconnected everything unnecessary. After reading what people had written I learned that this is a common problem, and for some it has helped to detach and re-attach the graphics card repeatedly. That did not help me either.

Finally I bought a second motherboard like this and still the same issue. I tried connecting a PC speaker but it gave no sound: not even if I tried to start without memory sticks in which case it should beep at least about the missing memory.

I resolved the issue by buying a different brand of motherboard and everything worked fine out of the box. I returned both of these Gigabyte motherboards.


Q-Connect KF3535 Envelope C4 Window 100gsm Self-Seal (Pack of 250) - White
Q-Connect KF3535 Envelope C4 Window 100gsm Self-Seal (Pack of 250) - White
Price: £12.38

2.0 out of 5 stars Too large, 19 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The envelope is so large that it allows an A4 inside it move quite freely. This means that no matter where do I print the address the paper will be able to move so much that the address will not be visible.

The quality otherwise is fine and the glue is fine other than that it's not protected with anything, so the envelope on top may collect dust on its glue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Large cuts, 24 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The shredder itself seems efficient and well built, but the cuts are quite large: 43 x 4 mm. That's large enough to contain 10 full digits of a credit card or 30 characters of normal text. Since it doesn't do diamond cut or anything more advanced like that, with some bad luck the shreds might actually contain the digits.

I work around the problem by inserting the papers with the most sensitive data diagonally, but with A4 papers it means I have to fold them first so that they'd fit which is a little bit annoying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and solid, 28 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a tape that would not leave marks, would stick, and would stretch a little. This one fits the bill perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not adjustable, 16 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The biggest flaw is that this monitor cannot be adjusted in any way to a different position. I wish I had noticed that before buying. It's quite low so I have to put my copy of Webster's beneath it.

Other than that the picture quality is very nice for office use at least. The image is sharp, and the colors are good and bright. Movies also seem fine on it.
