Sony Mobile Clip-On Style Case Cover for Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet
Sony Mobile Clip-On Style Case Cover for Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet

4.0 out of 5 stars Pricey but good, 3 Jan. 2015
Slightly overpriced for what it is, but the quality is good, the fit good and the design very clever. Basically it does what it's supposed to; providing protection while not in use while allowing quick and easy access. There is a hole for the camera lens, so that's not a problem, while the various folding options pride a good variation of self supporting positions while watching films, etc. Installation is very easy, taking all of 10 seconds, so on the whole it's an excellent accessory, but should really be nearer £15-17 than £25.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing piece of kit, 2 Jan. 2015
Bought my mother one of these for Christmas and she loves it. From the moment you first pick it up there's a look and feel of real quality, while the display is bright and sharp. There's a bit of Sony bloat-ware but is easy to remove or hide so you can soon have the start screen looking just how you like. The touch screen is very responsive and speakers loud enough for any normal exercise.
Opening the tab the fit the USB charger is a minor irritation, but it lasts well on a full charge and a magnetic charging dock is available if plugging in really bothers you. I strongly recommend the clip on case, both for protection and for it's options in propping up the tablet when watching a movie, iplayer, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make sure you install the PC software, 27 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these (well, got them for Christmas) to replace troublesome TP Link examples that were OK 'some' of the time but suffered from too many dropouts. The outer box is emblazoned with 'Made in Germany' and upon first inspection these look/feel rather better quality than their Chinese made predecessors. Setup is mainly simple; plug the dlan into your router and nearest mains socket (a trailing socket will work, but speed is reduced), then plug the wifi adaptor into a socket in another room. Once I did this it all connected itself automatically and my smartphone picked up the new wifi signal. The only hiccup was the security key which wouldn't play ball at first, but I installed the provided PC software and suddenly had total easy control over the whole thing. You don't have to use it, but it certainly makes life easier.

Overall, very pleased, we now have wifi throughout the house thanks to a few unobtrusive little white boxes, and no dropouts thus far.

Lovely, traditional tree decoration; looks and feels quality while beautifully catching the fairy lights in a dimly lit room.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright idea, 20 Dec. 2014
We installed one of these in the bathroom recently and have been very pleased. Quality is good throughout and fitting easy, but be aware that the glass is pretty heavy so use a bit of care when removing it to change bulbs. We're using a couple of 6w Osram LEDs and they provide excellent light around the room. It looks classy too, so all good for me.

The majority of of things that are 'too good to be true' are in reality not very good at all, so at £1.38 including delivery my expectations weren't high here. However, I've been very pleasantly surprised, the quality is good, even very good, and there's a decent variety of pics as well as excellent adhesion. The slight let down is size, they're a tad smaller than ideal, but overall I'm very pleased.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too soft and blunt, 18 Dec. 2014
From a distance the larger scorer here looks just the same shape as my old bone one, but upon reception and inspection the point is too blunt, making if less effective with typical grooved wooden scoring boards. On top of that the material is quite soft, so it quickly becomes blunter still.

We have numerous real glass decorations from Krebs and Inge Glas, and whilst they are naturally more fragile they are both beautiful and undoubtedly more rewarding than plastic alternatives. Something to be lovingly packed away and unwrapped each year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 30 Nov. 2014
Good for me. We have various Powerstrip hooks around the house and so long as you make sure you apply them exactly as instructed, to a clean dry surface, they work an absolute treat. Neat, effective, no drilling or nailing. Splendid.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great, 26 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
3½ stars would be about fair. It's well enough made and does the job adequately, but there's just not enough to it to justify the price of nearly £50. The other slight disappointment is the surface; the material used is OK, but can have a tendency to snag pieces on occasion, which is irksome if you're trying to slide a clump of assembled pieces around. I have a smaller model from another company which has a felt type cloth that manages to prevent uncontrolled slipping around while still allowing smooth intended manoeuvring. Overall then, does the job, but not quite fully satisfying.
