2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Bins, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Celestron are a brand of optical equipment with telescopes and binoculars across a wide spectrum of prices, but mostly in the value-for-money end of the market. Having owned a solid and reliable Celestron telescope for many years, I had expected a similar level of quality from these binoculars. Sadly I was very disappointed. Although the rubber body and general feel of them was actually very good, the optics were out of collimation straight from the box. The focus barrel was very stiff and the eyepiece adjuster was also not completely sharp when setting them up. The Bak 7 prisms are good and the light gathering capabilities more than acceptable, plus the weight is around the right area too, especially for star gazing. Sadly if they are out of collimation there isn't much else to do but send them back, and the Amazon returns policy gets these binoculars and additional star! A shame as there are positives for this product, if only they could get the quality control right and ensure the prisms are set-up correctly before dispatching.

These straps have a multitude of uses, I keep finding new ways for them to do a certain job on my road bike. They are well made and strong and also appear to stay weather proof too, so I cannot recommend them highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth as a Baby's B**, 8 May 2013

This stuff works so well and for long rides in the saddle you should invest in this. I have recently done a 100km run and didn't have so much chaffing using this cream. A must for avid road cyclists.

Ideal, colorful and cheap cases that do the job of protecting your i-pod shuffle perfectly. Even if they don't last you have 3 in the pack so even better value. I cannot fault them so far.

UKayed Imitation Dummy Security Camera Dome With Flashing LED Light

Price: £2.34

3.0 out of 5 stars Camera Shy, 17 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This little device is nifty and certainly looks convincing...but only from a few feet away. It's something that can add a little extra peace of mind, as long as it is positioned well and you can't get too close to it to see it's actually a plastic dummy. I have this and some CCTV stickers, as well as an external dummy camera (also bought on Amazon), and so far all these items have done the job of convincing a would-be burglar to go elsewhere. So for the cost of a few quid it adds a barrier without having to fork out hundreds for real cameras and recording equipment, plus someone who can fit them professionally.

The stickers are a little on the small side really, but well made and professional. For better visibility they really should be larger but the bright yellow is vivid and certainly can be seen from a few feet away in my front window.


Raleigh Alloy Seat Post Bottle Cage Mount
Raleigh Alloy Seat Post Bottle Cage Mount
Offered by Parkers of Bolton

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly Perfect, 17 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a neat little cage mount that's well made and has the added stability of two contact points (saddle base and saddle stem). I would have given this 5 starts except it's fiddly to mount and requires a little trial and error regarding final positioning. However, once fitted it is stable and well engineered – although I am not certain that the angle the cage is mounted to will hold a water bottle over rougher road surfaces. I bought an Elite cage and matching Elite bottle, as the bottle does fit into the cage with a lot more security for added confidence over pot holes etc! It does look the business on my ride and so far so good, and this is pretty good value for this type of product, of which there are not many on the market to choose from. A pal of mine bought a double cage holder for twice this price and it doesn't look as good, and he has lost a bottle that popped out over a bad pot-hole. All in all I am very happy with this product and would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cheesy Winner, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Who Dares Wins [DVD] (DVD)
I love this film and all it's faults...I still believe that Lewis Collins should have become a much bigger star. The films is not without fault, but I am not an uptight film critic, I just enjoyed the action and the pace of the film. It has dated in certain areas, obviously it's a product of it's era, both politically and stylistically but don't get too obsessed with this point. I love the scene when the second SAS team burst through the wall where Collins' family are being held captive, and then mercilessly kill them without hesitation or emotion. That gives the lead SAS team the green light to proceed at the Embassy, then all hell breaks loose in the final dramatic scene. A great film and one to enjoy over again on this DVD, which you would not find in most high street shops.

5.0 out of 5 stars Case Closed!, 11 April 2013

This is a perfect fit and comes with a little added style...I am very pleased with the quality and the price. It's not possible in the high street to get a gel case for the Xperia Miro and if it was it would probably be £10 or more, so this is an ideal choice and it was delivered in double quick time.
