3.0 out of 5 stars Good laptop but had flaws, 19 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this laptop a few days after it was released, got this one purely because at the time it was the best GPU for the £450 i paid. Main use was for gaming but didnt actual do much of it instead was used for normal surfing the network/office type work.

Laptop itself is good but here are my opinions:

Pros
good spec laptop
good graphics card Nvidia GT630M
quiet

Cons
Dodgy Wifi, keeps disconnecting every 30mins, updated with latest driver with no luck
power connection is loose, feels like something is broken but probably how it is
cheap display panel, can see its not of good quality but its fine for normal use

All in all, its a good laptop which i would of kept if not for the constatnt d/c on the wifi. Now this is being refunded.

2.0 out of 5 stars Barely works, 9 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my current TV as i wanted to use it for my main TV in the next few days so thought I test this out first.

I live in a good reception freeview area, receieved this yesterday, the size is quite small but thought nothing of it because of some reviews here. Pluged it in my current tv and the reception was worst. my old non powered aerial was still miles better, it was an old 'allforone'.

Sent this back for refund, may work for some but it didnt work for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good simple stand for home speakers, 9 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm happy with these speakers, it contains a few different size screws to mount different speakers.

It had one which worked for my old samsung surround sound speakers thats secured by 1 screw.

It does have a cable tidy system, you loop it through the pole and out from the base.

My only negative feedback is that one of the stand, where the pole screws to the base, the actual nut is bent so 1 of the stand leans. This is not too much of a problem for me because that one goes behind the sofa and only the speaker is visible. The other one is straight, if I didnt throw the box away, i might have exchanged it for another one hence 4 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars It does what it says but not that great, 16 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So I bought this as I couldnt find my other key (bigger version like the draper one), out of all the raditators i tried, only 2 of them managed to open, the rest was very tight and my thumb and finger started to hurt.

If you have very tight valve, then this wont do unless you have super strength and want to risk rounding your valve. Then again you normally dont know if its your first time doing this.

Will be ordering a new one and giving this one away.

2.0 out of 5 stars works and thats about it, 31 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this recently but returned it as faulty. When plugging out of the socket, the missus got a shock as there was still current on the plug, 2-3mins later, i touched it and got a little shock. Maybe just this item but sent back we're worried if kids unplug this, its a big no no!

anyway, it works but even the standard tone we didnt like, it was quite loud though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Comma Aircon cleaner is a waste of money, 7 July 2011
Hi all,

I bought a can of comma aircon cleaner from halfords, was very easy to use except for it wasnt really effective. after the 10-15mins, it smells of some cheap toilet smell, it stays in the car for approx 2-3 days of which was unbearable to use the fans. Now a week later the stale smell is actually gotten worst! I cant even use my aircon because of how bad it smells now (Stale smell).

I bought this based on good reviews online but for my case, it was a waste of money and made the car aircon unuseable due to the hightened stake smell.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good versatile ipad 2 case, 23 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really good case for protecting your ipad 2, its a little bulky but solid. Its nice that you can use it to stand the ipad for videos, price is reasonable too.

Though in saying this is one annoying thing about this case:

When you close the lid, depending on if the lid is slightly bent it can keep putting your ipad to sleep and awake everytime you touch it, you'll know from the constant locking sound when you are moving it around.

Apart from that, its a good case, i only use it when I'm travelling as I have a carbon fiber skin on the base.
