4.0 out of 5 stars Great but not for LG G3, 12 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for something to mount my phone to my camera rig so i could use it as a small monitor with the DSLR Controller app.
I have the Arkon MG279 Mobile-Grip 2 which holds my phone in my car and can be detached from the suction base to use on a tripod via the screw thread. This works great but i wanted something dedicated to the job and a little longer lasting. The Arkon has a plastic screw thread.
The Xshot holder looked promising and had so many great reviews but i wondered if it would fit my phone and case, the LG G3 with the Spigen Slim Armour. There is no information about which phones are compatible in the description so i asked but got no answers.
I went ahead and bought it anyway.
Today it arrived and although it does fit the LG G3 without the case, it's very tight and hard to attach as you have to stretch it to it's limit which can't be good for it. I can't comfortably recommend it for that particular phone. With the case on was out of the question.
The actual length the Xshot extends to is 8cm/3". That being the distance between the inside of the rubber grips. The LG G3 is exactly 8cm with the case on but the case makes it too fat for both rubber grips to clamp onto it. The top grip pulls the case off the phone while the bottom doesn't even wrap around.
The thing itself is great looking. The rubber grips hold the phone rock solid. The whole thing feels very well made and seems built to last.
If only there was a slightly larger version. I was gonna give it 3 stars but decided to put my disappointment aside and just review the product for what it is. A great compact solution for mounting your phone to a tripod or anything with a 1/4" thread.
So long as your phone is less than 7/7.5cm wide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Roland TD-12!, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed something to attach my MP3 player to the rack of my TD-12 drum kit. After discovering the Gibraltar SC-GMP3MNT and then seeing the price (£45-£70) I decided to just get the Gibraltar clamp and look for something i could use with it.
After finding out here that the table clamp of this gooseneck mount is detatchable, I ordered it straight away.
It arrived very quickly and as soon as i got it out of the box, I could see that I wasn't gonna need the Gibraltar clamp at all.
It slips very nicely onto the TD-12 rack and holds firm. The gooseneck holds its position well. The device clamp has a very strong spring in it which gives it a very good hold on your device without causing any damage, thanks to the red rubber grips.

I cannot believe Gibraltar are asking so much for something that this does just as well for a fraction of the price.
I know there are many versions of this gooseneck device holder from many different manufacturers but all i can say is that this one works very well and a great price too.

Check out the pics I added.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!, 15 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They do what they're suppose to do. Great picture quality with the WD TV Live streaming box.
Very sturdy cables. You don't need to spend £80 on an HDMI cable for it to be good quality.
£80 HDMI cables are a con. Don't fall for it. Get these instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the Job!, 8 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my 550d 18-55mm kit lens as a lens protector.
It works very well. It's a great fit and it has a very handy case for when it's not in use.
I would definitely buy more in the future.
A good quality item at a great price! Fast delivery too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing!, 7 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my dad as a 70th birthday/retirement present. As the title says, it's simply amazing.
I read all the reviews for it on Amazon and decided to ignore the reviews that complain about a buzzing noise. This did concern me at first but when the TV came, i tried it out straight away to see if it suffered from the same thing.
Yeah, there is a slight buzz but after that i never heard it again as it now sits in a medium sized (Council/Housing Association house)lounge and is far too quiet to hear.

My dad is well chuffed with it and so am i. Seriously, it's one of those TV's that you can't walk past without watching it. Doesn't matter what's on, the picture quality is so good that you just have to stand and stare.
I own a first generation Samsung 40" HD Ready 1080i TV. I thought that was good til i saw this thing. I can't believe how good they have gotten. We have it connected to a Panasonic DVD & HDD freeview recorder via HDMI, set to 1080p.
The colours are amazing. The blacks are the blackest i've ever seen on a TV. Even old home videos played from a DVD look good.

I was gonna buy my dad a bluray player too but with quality this good, i don't need to.
Ultra speedy delivery too. Came in two days from ordering.

Bottom line - Go for it!

(If there's anything you wanna know about this TV. Just ask and i'll see what i can do.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money!!, 28 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace the front USB ports on my pc as i was having trouble with them. It arrived pretty fast and it worked straight away. No problems with Windows 7 Home Premium. The supplied USB cable (which is the same as a printer USB cable) is quite short but wasn't a problem for me. I highly recommend this. For the price, you can't go wrong. Buy now!
