5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing and rising made easy, 22 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a brilliant chair. Very easy to unpack and assemble. Just slot the back of the chair onto the base, put the plug in a socket and done. The plug is plently long enough to reach the socket which was over a metre away from where I wanted the chair. It is a lovely chocolaty brown with some coffee colured flecking and looks much nicer than the pictures would suggest.
The seat base hight from the floor is quite high so this makes it easy to sit down, rather than fall into. This might be a problem for people of average height as their feet may not touch the floor when seated.
When fully reclined the chair is almost horizontal. This chair has a single motor where the back and leg support rise together. The control is a two button affair, one for up and one for down and the motor is quiet.
The chair rises and tilts and doesn't tilt so far as to tip you out onto the floor but far enough so it takes no effort to stand.
The chair can be placed just 6 inches (15cm) from the wall without it affecting reclining or rising.
As to matching other furniture this fits in well. When neither recling or rising the chair looks just like a normal chair. When reclined looks just like a normal recliner. I love it and so does my cat when I'm not in it. Fantastic

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than original, 18 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would recommend this to everyone who owns the s2. The factory fitted one was lasting me less than a day and as already reported in many reviews the factory fitted back feels flimsy.
This new extended battery has kept my phone powered up by at least 50% more and now normally lasts for at least a day and a half.
It did take a couple of charges for me to see the real benefit.
The back fits properly to the phone and has all the all the original finish.
It does make the phone the same thickness as the bottom section of the phone though.
The sides curve very nicely into the phone and it feels a little more rigid and less flimsy.
This is what the phone should have had from the start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just The Job, 27 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely fantastic. I wanted to be able to watch some AVI films on my Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and this makes it very easy.
Copied the files onto a USB Flash drive plugged the flash drive in to the tablet and hey presto films on the go.
The adapter doesn't seem flimsy and I've pulled at it a bit to see if it will come apart easily and it seems to be intact and still working as good as ever. I've not tried it with a keyboard yet but can't see why I should have a problem. Brilliant price and arrived a day earlier than the expected delivery date and excellent packaging.

Exactly what you would want aged 9. Boots that look like your idols that are comfortable and you can wear on astroturf as well as grass. They wash well in the washing machine too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Price, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've wanted a Baracuta G9 Harrington Jacket for ages just could never quite justify the price.....then I saw this.
I ordered a larger size XL after reading some reviews which said to do this as otherwise it could be a bit tight.
I'm sorry I did as an XL was too big. I therefore had to return the item (at my own cost) and ask the seller to replace it with size L. I also asked the seller to swap for another colour as the Navy one had the industrial pollycotton overall look. The black one looked much better even though made from the same fabric.
The tartan lining is fine although perhaps a little thin, although the lining of the sleeves is pink polyester that might put some off.
I like it very much and being pollycotton I just know it will be more than happy with a few spins in the washer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Quality Issues, 23 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Germany 1, England 5 [DVD] (DVD)
I was really looking forward to reliving this match and having a dvd I could keep forever at an unbelievable price.
The trouble is that the picture quality is terrible and one can barely make out the players never mind the ball.
The pitch looks like a green splodge and the players are very blurred. Even spending an age fiddling with contrast, sharpness, colour, backlighting, brightness, in fact every adjustment you can make to an HD TV nothing improved it much. I did still watch it to the end though. The commentary is very clear and close ups looked ok. For younger viewers who don't know who David Seaman is this won't help much as you wouldn't even recognise safe-hands himself walking down the street after watching this.

It's nice for the price however the plating on one of the charms is so thin that you can already see the base metal underneath. Excellent starter bracelet for adding your own charms.
