V-fit G-RC Recumbent Magnetic Cycle
V-fit G-RC Recumbent Magnetic Cycle
Price: 169.38

1.0 out of 5 stars Worked for one day - garbage and a waste of an afternoon putting it together, 23 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not impressed, I guess if you buy cheap you have to expect it not to last but seriously 1 day of use (probably around 45 minutes max) and total losss of resistance on the bike, having now read some of the poorer reviews this problem has affected others too so now I have the joy of taking this heap apart again and packaging up to send back to Amazon.....not impressed!

1.0 out of 5 stars As long as you don't mind the noise of a jumbo jet this will be fine!, 25 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had decided to upgrade to a 960H DVR from existing DVR but having had 3 of these systems now I can confirm all sound like a plane taking off, the built in fan is sooooo noisy, as ours is kept in a bedroom it would be impossible to sleep with it on, it is loud enough that it can be heard over a tv at low volume, just ridiculous!

Also to make things worse the reason for having 3 is the first two also lost their HDD connection after less than 12 hours use and stopped recording and being able to control motion detection settings etc.

Very poor show from Swann who I had previously recommended to friends and family and in fact installed 3 other systems 1200-1300 models previously but would not recommend this model to anyone unfortunately

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, worst screen protector have used, 25 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Xmas present of Vita for son so first job to apply the screen protector, well having applied loads in the past on everything from iPhone to iPad and every other phone etc. around and never had a problem beyond a bubble or two, this pack of three were garbage, impossible to apply even to a brand new screen straight from the box, all 3 full of tons of bubbles from the start no way of even starting the application without a load of bubbles, all 3 applied and now ordered a decent branded Hori versions instead! Don't waste your money would be my advice

1.0 out of 5 stars Still waiting for delivery, 3 days after Prime delivery date and Citylink again have failed!, 15 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is based upon amazon still using incompetent couriers like Citylink and yodel and the continued inability of these couriers to deliver on time, or in this case at all.

However to be fair to potential purchasers, I had to buy locally as my wife needed new boots and as such I didn't have time to order more cheaply online and bought from a regional store instead. She loves the boots, has worn them on fields, walking the dog etc, and her major feedback is they are nothing like normal wellies, they'd it like shoes so are comfortable to walk in and because they fit tightly around the shin area there is no draught/cold coming into the boot s she is more than happy with them. Her foot size and the boot was exactly the same so no issues with sizing from her size 4 foot perspective.

If only we could actually comment on amazons supplied boot but perhaps one day it will be found by Citylink and then I can tell them that I am refusing delivery due to their total incompetence once again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent set and Amazon kindly sent the upgraded model so very happy, 15 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived within the next day delivery as promised (which lately is a welcome surprise!!!) and was shortly followed by another surprise which was Amazon had supplied the next model up so extra HDMI slots and some other useful spec enhancements too. PQ was excellent for a well priced set, sound is average as with most thin TVs as I suppose speaker quality is always somewhat restricted by size etc. all features work as stated and general very impressed for price vs quality

AURAGLOW 6w LED GU10 Light Bulb, Daylight (Full Spectrum) 50w Equivalent

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, bright and no complaint from my other half, 15 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First LED bulbs I have bought that are actually bright enough to get my wife to agree that they were a good replacement for the super expensive to run 50w GU10s that cover our kitchen. Yes they are still expensive but instead of 500w of electric being drained every time the kitchen was in use its now 60w so hopefully if they last as long as is claimed then the electric bill saving should cover the costs

2.0 out of 5 stars Still cold toes!, 15 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nope, as per most thermal socks these don't really do anything more than the average sock, still find my toes/feet are cold within 30 mins or so of being out in freezing conditions, did have great hopes but I will have to kee looking for the elusive 'keep your feet warm' socks :(

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too noisy but the two settings not enough, 15 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't find this too noisy as some reviews suggested before I purchased however my issue is that in the highest setting my feet actually get too hot yet the lower setting isn't quite hot enough so something in the middle would make this a better product. Also the first time I used it the overheat cutoff kicked in after about 5 hours of use Nd it wouldn't come on again for about 30 minutes which was mildly annoying

4.0 out of 5 stars The best 'thermal' gloves I have bought, 15 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So I have tried many gloves in the hope they will actually do what is claimed ie keep your hands warm! The are definitely the best so far. Gave them an extreme workout within days of buying as had to go to Russia where the temps were -25 and I can happily confirm my hands and fingers stayed warm throughout my travels, since then they have kept my hands warm whilst standing in cold football pitches and riding a bike in the chilly UK winter. Highly recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what is it says it does!, 15 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have used these over the years for different work laptops, expensive for what it is but does exactly what it says, yes a little darker in the screen but at an angle no peering eyes, on the plane, train etc. all your work stays private
