5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile and effective, 12 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As well as the more usual ways of using the case, the two elasticated straps make this case really versatile. The narrow band can be used to hold the top of the case in its position folded against the back of the iPad... then you can use the wide (2.5 inch), suede-effect strap to put your hand through. Alternatively you can insert your hand into the side gap once you've used the first strap... both of these configurations are great for reading in bed and the reduced weight of the iPad air makes this a very relaxing way to use the tablet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and functional (35mm box required), 4 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First thing to note... you need to have a 35mm deep wall box to fit this switch. I didn't (and guess most people won't), so out came my cold-chisel and lump hammer. Things went reasonably well, but I do now have a small filling and paint touch-up task on my list ;-)

The product itself is very stylish and does everything one would hope without fuss... reusing the existing wiring was a doddle. I am like a kid with a new toy now, switching the lights on and off from my arm-chair. Hopefully I will get used to the feeling of power soon and my family will be able stop telling me off!

I would recommend this switch to anyone with basic electrical skills and an existing 35mm wall box... if your wall box is shallower, note you'll have a slighly larger DIY project on your hands. For new builds, or if you have a handy-person to do this sort of thing for you, my reccomendation is unconditional.

My only thought for an improvement would be an iPad app to allow me to control the lights without needing a separate remote.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic disk to discover the different moods of Gabrieli's works, 3 Dec. 2013
Gabrieli's skill at setting sacred pieces of different moods is second to none in my opinion. The singers and instrumentalists in this recording do a wonderful job of demonstrating those moods. This would be at the top of my desert island disc list; I bought it nearly a year ago and haven't tired of it yet!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for the size... some blades stiff., 28 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace a larger Leatherman which I am reluctant to wear outside the house because of restrictions imposed by UK law. This one is small enough with no locking blades for me to be comfortable wearing it all the time. I've already had a lot of use from it. A couple of the screw-driver blades are too stiff easily to open.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reassuringly strong, heavy as a consequence., 28 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This lock is great for my bright red folding Brompton... perhaps I'm getting old, but I could swear it's harder to cycle up the hills with it attached to the bike!

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks really good, not quite as beam-thru as I'd like, 28 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This unit looks great in the corner of our lounge with our new 46" black TV on it. A minor irritation is that occasionally button presses on remotes have to be repeated when the door is closed.

3.0 out of 5 stars The word "adult" in the product name means "porn", it's not an indication of size!, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Completely unawares, I bought this item for my daughter. Luckily, she knows more about manga and anime than I and, not recognising the characters, asked me to check their suitability before wearing the item in public. I haven't found actual videos with these characters in but I suspect other purchasers may be unpleasantly surprised if they ever do?

3.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable and good looking, but not as strong as I'd hoped, 13 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Update June 2013 - one of the chairs buckled under my weight :-(

I am not a small chap, 6' 3" and somewhat overweight, but these chairs are great for use during muscal rehearsals... absolutely no worries about the build quality and really comfortable too. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A thing of beauty, 23 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
... comfortingly solid feel yet slim and elegant; fantastic value after the big price drop from the £500 area (an area I would never venture into for the purchase of a wrist-watch!)
