1.0 out of 5 stars massive heat, constant problems, slow refund, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived next day when i had selected free delivery. I was very impressed with this.

Unfortunately it was downhill for here.

First my 6 month old motherboard would not recognise the card. i eventually managed to solve this by flashing an updated bios. This is forgivable for a very new piece of hardware. What i didnt find acceptable was the card would randomly freeze with a black screen sometimes recovering sometimes requiring a hard reset. i tried using ATi's clean uninstall tools, as recommended, and doing a fresh install. i also tried the new beta drivers. nothing helped. this lead to me returning the card within a week.

It should also be noted that this card runs very very hot and very loud. i had specifically waited for a card with a custom cooler to avoid this problem. but even running some reasonably undemanding games such as minecraft. it reached over 95c and i had to stop furmark as the card was hitting over 100c. opponents of this card will cry this is fine and the card is designed to cope with these temps. but my CPU temps had gone up to the high 70c having previously never gone over the low 60c ( i7 3rd gen 3.6Ghz) i run a huge heat sink on the CPU and the fan almost never used to even come on and was now running full speed constantly. i could have cooked an egg on the CPU heat sink when i removed the new card to return it.

and to add insult to injury the company sent me an email sayin g they would require up to 10 days after receiving the item to return my money. today is day 10 and no money in my bank :-(

1.0 out of 5 stars works with a catch, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I own a nexus 5 and have been having problems finding cables that have a decent length and also allow it to charge in AC fast charging mode. this cable does have the length i need and charges fast.

Now the problem. The small teeth at the front of the phone connector don't clip the connector into the phone meaning the plug often falls out. this has happened a number of times overnight meaning my alarm has not gone off and i have been late for work.

I expect better from a £10 cable!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent bulb, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i can highly recommend this bulb. I've bought a number of different LED bulbs recently in an effort to save some on the electric bills. most have been rubbish either falling to bits, failing after a couple of days or having very blue light. This bulb suffers non of these problems being both reliable and giving a lovely bright warm light.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter rubbish, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't buy this bag!

fell apart with in days of using. I've had 3 months now and 2 zips are broken and the main zip is next to unusable as the material surrounding has frayed so badly is gets caught in the zip every time you try to use it.

1.0 out of 5 stars massively overpriced., 23 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was initially very happy with this item. Until a visit to my local boots a few weeks later where these were being sold for a pound each.

I bought them to put heat on an inflamed eye and didn't realise they needed boiling for quite sometime to reuse them. I would have preferred the type you can reheat in the microwave.

In my view they are mislabeled and should be called hand warmers.

1.0 out of 5 stars these are rubbish, 24 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dont buy these. First the good. They sem well built and they look good. They connected to my galaxy s3 with no problems at all and they stay on no matter how hard you work out.

Now the bad they hurt my ears. I do admit I have small ears so this might not be a problem for all. The battery life is rubbish and they dont have a uk plug charger. Although they do supply an adaptor. The kicker for me was the sound quailty I use power amp an android music app with alot of customisation features and I just couldnt get the headset to not distort bassy tracks horribly. Plus the bass is never loud enought. Thats not to say the music dont go loud enough cos you can turn the volume to an uncomfortable level if you so wish, its tinny.

1.0 out of 5 stars dont buy these, 24 Jan 2013
I have had more than a dozen sets of head phones over the last year for use in the gym. Some good some rubbish still havnt found my perfect set yet. These definitely are not them either. They were pretty expensive. Hurt my ears. Battery life was short and the kicker, the bass is rubbish. I really rely on my music to keep me going through a long cardio session. These head phones caused some pretty nasty distortion when heavy bassy tracks kicked in. I use powerapp a music app for android which allows you a great deal of customisation and I just couldnt get the distortion to stop.

1.0 out of 5 stars generally happy, 10 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
im reasonably happy with these. they come with lots of ear buds and i have gotten an excellent fit. they cancel out background noise very well, which makes them great for the gym. the over ear loop ensures they never fall out.

one problem i have had is they have begun turning brown (red rusty colour)around the seal and condensation is obvious inside the housing. i admit i sweat profusely when im wearing these as they were brought for the gym. but i didn't expect this to happen and has been the sole reason they didn't get 5 stars excellent product otherwise and an excellent price.

update!

left ear stopped working today ive emailed the company to ask for a refund. will let you all know how i get on.
