2.0 out of 5 stars Pros: You can connect and control via the internet ..., 17 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros: You can connect and control via the internet (though a relatively expensive add on required)
Cons: If the power goes out so does the link with the remote. No "all on" or "all off" button

I have a much cheaper set that stay connected after a power cut and have "all" buttons, I bought these new ones because of the optional internet control. Although I was aware of the lack of a button to control all of them, the text did not mention that the link with the remote is lost after a power failure (or if you switch the wall socket off or unplug to move it, for example). Without this significant flaw they'd have had 4 stars (losing one for the lack of an "all" button).

5.0 out of 5 stars A very nice cover, 6 Mar 2014

Bought for my wife's Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 inch tablet, it fits perfectly, works great as a stand and protects the device. All at a decent price, couldn't ask for more. Colour good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice light, 22 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The info provided on the Amazon web site was sparse, so it was a slightly risky purchase. However I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and style, especially in respect of the low price. It has a G9 lamp fitting, and includes a 28 Watt Halogen bulb. The shade is a glass ball covered in a wire mesh, which looks like a spring that has been stretched and wound around the ball. The effect is to give a very appealing streaked shadow effect on the wall and a decent level of brightness. Being a Halogen bulb it's quite strong if you stare directly at it, I expect to replace the bulb at some point with a lower wattage LED version, as this is being used in a hall which doesn't require particularly high illumination. The whole unit is fairly small, ideal for a limited space.

Fitting was straightforward, typical for a Massive branded model, and I wired it in to a remote controlled switch so can turn the hall light on from the comfort of an armchair.

A good purchase, well suited to any small space, such as hallway, cloakroom, utility, etc.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very thin, 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Been using them for a few months as foot protectors when kayaking in a local swimming pool. Showing signs of wear (though only used fortnightly) and so thin you can feel the cold flooring through the soles. Would go for something thicker or with a proper built in sole next time (which judging by the wear will be soon).

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright!, 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased with this lamp, bought to replace a 50 Watt Halogen used in a cloakroom. It gives a very bright, very white light at a much lower wattage. The light is directional, which is what I was looking for, so probably not suitable for use as a single light source in a much larger room.

3.0 out of 5 stars They work, but not for all cables, 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably harsh to give these three stars, but I wasn't able to use them on the job I bought them for. The wires I needed to join were too thin so the metal bar did not fully cut through the plastic shield to give a reliable connection, I was forced to buy some screw terminal blocks instead. No issues on thicker cable though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it's supposed to do, 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works. Four core needed for the Red Green Blue and Voltage wires for my multicolour kitchen cabinet lighting. The only downside is that the cables are very thin and don't work with the scotch lock connectors I bought. So I had to buy screw terminal connectors which were more cumbersome but do the job. Also, it's amazing how much cable is used running up and down the back of kitchen cabinets. Should have bought two, as 10m was not enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good cables, 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I incorrectly selected the wrong inner cables when ordering these, but they sent me replacements shortly after. Only just fitted one today but it works well, the previous cable was "scraping" and meant significant force was needed on the brake lever to get the cycle to stop. This new one is smooth and a good length. Had to shorten it and use another cap (it comes pre fitted with one at each end) but I like the braded silver design so far it seems to work well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good bulbs, 29 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I much prefer the "instant on" ability of LEDs to alternative low energy light bulbs based on fluorescent tubes. I also find that the latter variety have relatively poor lifetimes, whereas LEDs "should" be good for many years. Prices are higher but falling, and wattages generally lower, meaning long term real savings.
