Some very interesting content in this book which made me stop and think about my own mind and how I react to the world. A good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect fit, 23 Mar. 2014

You're paying more money for a holder which has been designed for the Q10; with that in mind, it fits perfectly and holds the phone securely. Not my first Brodit and definitely won't be the last. Excellent products.

Really enjoyed this book. It was easy to get quickly engrossed into the story and the plot kept me reading even when I should have been working!

Excellent first novel - congratulations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the Fuji X100S, 2 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having ordered the Fuji X100S, I wanted a suitable case - something which matched the vintage/retro look of the camera, or at least complimented its design.

This case fits the X100S perfectly, with or without its lens cap in place. The accessory pocket is big enough for an additional battery, lens cloth and memory cards.

The belt loop is a double fixing secure velcro setup so you don't need to unfasten your belt to attach or remove the case.

The padding isn't excessive but good enough to keep your camera safe on your belt.

The case's material is looks mottled/faded (by design)which adds to it's appeal and suitability for the X100S.

It makes a nice change to the more 'urban'/modern camera bags and cases (such as the great Lowepro bags, of which I own a few).

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small, low cost and useful., 22 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quick delivery and frustration-free packaging, this optical drive was just what I needed for occasional use during PC install (where no internal drive is available).

Very slim and does its job well.

Recommended.


Military Black Quick Release Belt
Military Black Quick Release Belt
Offered by Singletrack Distribution Ltd
Price: £10.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Stiff, wide but otherwise good., 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As many have mentioned, it's very wide so won't fit through the belt loops of most trousers. However, I purchased to hold an archery quiver around my waist so for this purpose it's fine.

The Quick Release is a 'secure' type where you have to press a front facing button AND the usual two side prongs before it releases - so no accidental removal is possible.

Seems pretty good quality overall, I'm happy. Just be warned if you intend to wear it with 'normal' trousers, at a width of 2 inches it probably isn't going to fit.

Quickly dispatched via Amazon Prime from the seller "General Stores Online".

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and lightweight device, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this on the day it was released in the UK. Amazon shipped the day before and it arrived on the day of release.

I've owned many Garmin devices in the past but never a dedicated car 'satnav' - previously used an old Garmin Oregon which must be about 10 years old now (also own treking/outdoor hand-held Garmin devices).

This Garmin (2597LMT) was a fantastic update: clear display, 3D maps, voice directions and easy destination entry. The traffic alerts are a bonus too.

Two days after receiving this Garmin, I tested it 'in anger' on a one week holiday to Cornwall. The ease of use and accuracy of the directions are excellent. Arriving at the holiday cottage, a quick button press located the nearest supermarket and directed us there. Whilst en route, the 'Up Ahead' feature showed fuel, toilets and refreshments on the journey and the traffic delays were updated as we went (with the option to re-route to avoid).

This 5" screen version is big (and clear) enough for use without being too big to carry around once you get out of the car - I think the 7" version would be more of a pain to carry (even with the girlfriend/wife/fiancee's handbag to store it!).

I recommend this device!

Chapelwood Straight Bracket, 12 Inch
Chapelwood Straight Bracket, 12 Inch
Offered by British Garden Centres
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong and well made, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Forget the thing and bendy brackets that you can buy in all the DIY shops, this bracket is a solid bit of metal and will last a lifetime. This is the sort of bracket that after ten years in the garden, you'll happily clean off any rust and give it a new coat of Hammerite.

I've bought two of these (both from Amazon, not a MarketPlace seller) and can recommend it.

No fixing pack included - you'll have to get your own screws and plugs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brief but interesting, 24 Feb. 2013
Interesting little book aimed at pen testers and those hiring them. Interesting for the lay-person too, for someone looking for an insight into this secure world.


BlackRapid Wrist Strap for Camera with 5 Year Product Warranty
BlackRapid Wrist Strap for Camera with 5 Year Product Warranty
Offered by Crooked Imaging
Price: £20.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product., 23 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have the Black Rapid 7 strap and thought I'd get this to compliment the setup. Sometimes I don't want the neck/shoulder strap hanging around, or if I'm just walking with a macro lens attached, this BR Wrist Strap is just the answer.

I have fairly large hands (male) and have no problem with the size of the strap. You can tighten up the strap to prevent it slipping off your wrist.

The opening through which you put your hand is about 5" across; webbing is 1" across.

Nice product. Bought from Amazon (not a 'marketplace' seller).
