Swissgear GA-7316-06F00 Ibex 17 Inch Backpack - Black/Blue
Swissgear GA-7316-06F00 Ibex 17 Inch Backpack - Black/Blue
Price: 52.92

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal work backpack, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have been using this backpack for about a year now. The straps are so well designed for shock absorption, that any laptop in the back seems light, and you dont feel the weight at all.

Ample storage. The middle small pouch is a dream, all my knicknacks - pen, wallet, coins are there, easily reachable. There are other compartments in the bag, but they are too many to use. The inside bottom lifts up and down to increase/decrease the volume dramatically. This is worth all the money (I think I paid 50)

Poor product, no instructions, no adhesive along the tape, just at the edges, Thickness also insufficient for the grip. Also, no choice on the colour, I recd a purple one, which looks weird on a men's racquet.

2.0 out of 5 stars Expensive for the size, 5 Feb 2014

Didnt blow up big enough. One of the balloons burst even when not filled to full capacity.

Also on blowing up, it looks more pink than red


Oxford Junior Top Tube Child Seat - Black
Oxford Junior Top Tube Child Seat - Black
Price: 20.97

2.0 out of 5 stars Unstable design, 5 Feb 2014
My cycle had an oval tube. The design of the cycle seat really only allows the bracket to grip the bottom of the tube. The top bracket is flat and can barely grip the top part of the tube.

Tightening the bolts and nuts was enough. and on applying pressure to try to tighten it so that it doesn't move, the thread eroded, and the bolt kept going round in the same place (without tightening or loosening).

2.0 out of 5 stars Really disappointed with the product., 13 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THis door bell hasn;t really worked well since 2 months after we bought it. Earlier we thought that the problem was with the battery, HOwever, having changed the battery thrice, it looks like the fault is not with the battery.

On putting a new battery, the bell works ok for a day or two. THen the problems start
1. Rings without anyone pressing the button. Looks like the system is misfiring
2. The tune starts dragging as if battery is dying even though it has just been replaced
3. The bell continues to give out a low whistling sound continuously. This goes only when the batteries are removed.

Really disappointed with the product.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor resolution, unresponsive, and Not value for money, 19 Jan 2012
This review is from: DSC-T700 (Electronics)
I owned this camera for almost 2 years. I bought it because I broke my earlier camera with externally protruding lens. I wanted a lens that doesn't protrude out.

It is indeed very small and easy to carry. The internal lens movement also saves battery and hence can use the camera for a long time without charging.

The pic resolution is very poor though. Esp, in the dark, or moving subjects, the pictures are really bad. Recently I have started seeing spots on photos in poor light, when there are none on the lens. You click again, and the next picture doesn't have them. Change of settings also didnt help.

Also zoom isn't of that great a quality.

The camera can only be used for well-lit, non-moving, close standing subjects.
