3.0 out of 5 stars USB standard ....... not., 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as happy with this as I thought I would be. The leather case is very good and the build quality feels good.
It comes with a lot of different charging adaptors. I really would have preferred if it could have been charged up using a standard USB cable with standard at one end and micro at the rechargeable battery end. Then a standard USB output on the battery end feeding a micro USB which most phones and tablets now have. As it is I need to carry two cables one of which is not a standard USB cable. So for lack of USB standardisation deduct 1.5 stars. The other 0.5 star is for the almost useless instructions. The exact function of the on off switch is far from clear but I think it is on to supply power and off when charging. Just as well it has very few options.

Seems very durable and has a micro USB of the shape expected. There seems to be a lot of confusion between mini and micro.

3.0 out of 5 stars prefer the browser version, 2 July 2014

This review is from: Amazon for Tablets (App)
I still prefer to use the browser for the increased functionality even on my tablet. Maybe this is OK if band width is limited or for the smart phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A big plate of pasta, 30 Jun. 2014
These are maybe a little bigger than I imagined them and maybe measuring 26cm out might be a good idea before purchase. However for some they will be a good size and are a good shape for pasta and they seem of reasonable quality.

Working very well and seem quite duarable. The lenses are better than some found in even cheaper readers. Reasonable value for money.

Ben Sherman Men's LCD Digital Watch (2777506)

2.0 out of 5 stars looks like the R220 which is also on Amazon. see my review of it., 1 April 2014
If it is the same watch it really is a fashion watch which quickly becomes scuffed due to poor quality. The strap also splits and isn't very durable.
I would think more than twice at this price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Velcro or straps?, 12 Mar. 2014
This belt is almost good and for some people may work without modification.
I find the velcro a bit difficult at times and ended up with needle and thread attaching one end of the belt permanently. In a way there is too many separate parts. Life would be easier if the lower belts were attached at the back and used velcro at the front. I modified the belt to work this way. It is a difficult area of the body to attach a firm support to. It is a pity the height of the pads are not adjustable without putting the waste belt in a position where it can slip downward. The belt is useful and is a great help but the design could be much better. I am willing to bet the designer has not got a hernia.

5.0 out of 5 stars My second purchase., 2 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first set still works after more than a year. So I now have four bell units and two bell pushes that I can set up as required.
There is a little switch block inside that means all four bells will go off when one of the bell pushes is pushed or you can set it so that each bell push works with different bell units. This is very useful but seems to be undocumented in the instructions. They have a good range in my house which has thick walls and is a bit spread out. The battery in the bell pushes lasts well and I am still using the original after more than a year.
It is possible to modify the bell push so that an other bell push will operate it by closing a contact. Useful if you have a nice declarative bell push you wish to retain. Note however that this requires use of a solder bolt, a small drill, some understanding of the way the bell push works and two small wires. Much easier if there had been two contacts on the outside rear for this function (manufacturer please note). In the event of a power cut the bells will revert to the default sound. A minor nuisance unless you lose power a lot.
All in all a very good and flexible product.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit fiddly but aren't they all., 2 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lots of chopping power for my needs so far. I will need to update this in a few months after I get to use everything for more jobs. Making reasonable fine bread crumbs and mixing/chopping up a stuffing was easy with the smaller of the bowls. The double blades worked well.
So far it seems good value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Would not load., 3 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Friday App (App)
Was not compatible with my Archos tablet so I couldn't use it. A more generic app that would load on more tablets would have been better. Using the Amazon web site to view black Monday lists was very slow and a good app for android would have been a help.
