4.0 out of 5 stars works as described, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this works as described & plays on the tv in full screen, i bought it to watch the motogp on bt sport, the only negative is i had to also purchase a hdmi extension cable as this cable is to short to be able to sit on sofa with phone, also every time i connect this up i get no sound through the tv & have to switch the tv off & then back on to get sound, but this may be the tv?, all in all it was worth getting but gets expensive when you need to buy extension cables

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this based on the good reviews, at the end of the day its a phone holder & it holds the phone securely, the suction to the windscreen seems excellent & i feel it will not fall off, however there are a couple of annoying things with it, the tab that you use to remove it from the windscreen is very small which is only a small niggle, but the most annoying thing is the fold out support for the phone constantly rattles when you have not got your phone in it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Raynaud's & Zippo hand warmer, 24 Feb 2013
This review is from: Zippo Handwarmer (Sports)
I suffer from Raynaud's & so bought one of these to try, (i will not go on about lighting these as there are many reviews about that except that you need to hold the flame over them for a lot longer than instructions say)
i initially bought the black version & was not overly happy with the heat it put out & after reading a review or two saying that the chrome version got hotter purchased one of those so i have one of each, now both lit & placed inside a jacket pocket i went out to the local pub with one in each pocket (you need to buy two one for each pocket), whilst indoors with the warmers inside your pockets they are reasonably warm & work ok keeping your hands warm as they should.
Remember i bought these as i suffer from Raynaud's & so wanted to stop the finger whitening & pain, well when you are sat outside or walking outside in temperatures of around 0.5-1.0 degrees c i found i wanted a lot more heat from both of them!, infact i found i was clutching them constantly as tight as i could in vain for more heat as you barely feel anything at all from them, its not as if you start to feel your fingers going & so put your hands inside your pockets for a quick warm up, you need to keep them inside your pockets clutching them tightly!.
With all the above said, normally in these temeratures i would arrive home with white painfull fingers, well with these in pockets & constantly clutching them i arrived home with normal circulation & not in pain, but never felt they gave anywhere near the heat i wanted from them but they obviously was giving out enough to combat the Raynauds (just?).
Now as i said earlier i bought a chrome one as i read it got warmer? to be honest its difficult to tell?, it may be slightly warmer or i may just think it is because thats what i read, but if it is theres not much in it.
I have read loads of reviews saying that these get so hot you are unable to hold them for long when not in its pouch?, well i have found i personally could hold them without any problem when not in its pouch (but i do have high heat tolerance so i am told).
To summarise they do the job but i found both of them not giving out anywhere near the heat i wanted as a Raynaud's sufferer from them when outside, but remember i did arrive home without any white or pain so they accomplished that (just), if they were as hot as my hands wanted from them they would probably be uncomfortable in your pockets, but if you go for these remember to get two!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very good!, 21 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sealey advertise this using the words "double skin side walls for extra strength"?, well i am glad they did use double skin as otherwise it would not be able to support its own weight!, still very flimsy & cheaply made!, i know it was the cheap end of the market but its really not worth the price, & the reason i bought it was the handy size needed for my purpose, the first thing i did to it was stiffen it all up before using it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money!, 21 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Drift HD Action Camera (Sports)
I purchased this after losing my GoPro HD hero & so have experience of both, i paid 160 for it & think that its better value for money than the GoPro, i think the video quality is on par with the GoPro but the Drift HD is much more user freindly with easy to follow menu settings, you don't need to carry the instructions with you its straight forward (unlike the GoPro),its also easier to tell when its recording with an audible beep & visible indicator (the GoPro had the recording light on the front so you could not see it?, although they have addressed that with the new GoPro 2),The Drift HD also comes with a remote control to use to start/stop recording althuogh you can't use it to switch the camera on/off but still handy to have!.
The Drift HD has a built in screen so you can set it up easier by seeing what you will record (an accessory with the GoPro) & the fact you can rotate the lense if you have not mounted it level is a good idea, all in all i like it & think its a better shape than the GoPro.
The negatives (the reason for 4 stars not 5) i have are that it has no protective casing especialy over the lense, its an optional extra but comes supplied with the GoPro, although the Drift HD lense can be replaced if damaged (although i have not looked at the cost of a new lense), other negatives are it uses micro sd cards & it has nowhere near as many mounting options as the GoPro although it has a standard thread for tripods etc so you can source the net & buy & modify mounts to give it more flexibility.
Lastly if its water sports you want one for then the GoPro would be your choice as its waterproof & the Drift HD is not

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says!, 21 Oct 2012

Not much to say about this really apart from it does what it says it does, it allowed me to watch the footage on the Drift HD on my TV, (handy lead to have)

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money!, 21 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It arrived without batteries, no problem i put in two new duracell alkaline AAAs, as soon as you shine the laser its bright for less than a second then dims down & the beam is not that visible (using at night).
However the worst part is that it's probably had less than two minutes of off/on use & the batteries are flat!, I would do some research on lasers & try to find a better quality one which will be more expensive, where the batteries will last longer as it will work out much cheaper in the long run (or short run actually) oh well lesson learnt & less than 5 wasted.

2.0 out of 5 stars lasted one week !, 8 Jan 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
It worked well for one week & then the x button & right paddle stopped working, just exchanged for a new one but don't expect this one to last long!, shame really because when it works it works well
UPDATE, the replacement has also been returned for a refund as the B button failed within a week!

5.0 out of 5 stars 3G or not 3G, 9 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I won't go on about how good the Kindle 3 is as there are enough reviews about that!, as this is advertised as a wireless device i was not sure whether you could only download books using a wireless internet conection?, as we had a wired conection (wireless now though) & i could not find out i went for the 3G version as i knew that we could download books that way (if you don't have 3G coverage in your area it uses GPRS). However i can confirm that you can download books to your pc & then transfer them to the kindle via the supplied usb cable if need be, so is the 3G version worth the extra money? well in my opinion no, the only time you might use 3G is if your on holiday on a beach somewhere & you run out of books to read, well if that happens with the amount of books this device can store you are either on the road to divorce for spending your holiday reading 24 hours a day (& it would have to be a long holiday!) or you are not organised enough to have loaded books on earlier!.
The wifi+3G version is excellent & the wifi only is just as good but cheaper!
No doubt you will have been undecided between the Kindle & its main rival?, well all i can say is, if its a book reader you want then with the difference in price its a no brainer as this does the job superbly


Galatea Radio Controlled Wall Clock
Galatea Radio Controlled Wall Clock

4.0 out of 5 stars Good clock for the money, 8 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought one & liked it so bought another for our sons room, radio controlled so no need to change when clocks go back or forward,it has a good clear display with both inside temp & outside, however don't take any notice of the instructions regarding the distance that the outside temp sensor can be away from the clock as it is largly exaggerated when going through a wall (as everybodys has to unless you have the clock outside aswell !)
we were lucky enough that both clocks are on a wall where the outside sensor is practically behind the clocks on the outside wall(which we have placed in a bird box so as not to look so out of place & also protects sensor from weather! we removed base from bird box to open it up for accurate temp readings, if you put sensor further away it keeps losing signal with the clock & becomes annoying as the outside temp feature was the main reason for us getting them
