2 New & Sealed Decks of Bicycle Playing Cards - 1 Red & 1 Blue

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant quality, brilliant value, 15 July 2014
You will struggle to find better quality cards than USPC/Bicycle.

These have lasted me many months now and are still in near mint condition.

These "standard" cards are also much better value than the more exotic bicycle decks, and are perhaps easier to read too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my grandparents, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased these cards as my grandparents struggled to read the index on their old deck.

I knew it was hard to beat the quality of USPC/Bicycle cards and they have so far lived up to their name, despite heavy usage.

The extra large index works a treat and my grandparents now enjoy playing cards without any doubt or struggling to read the cards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant chunky, durable watch, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant chunky, durable watch. I love the fact I can look at both the analogue hands and digital time to quickly check the time. The digital functions, such as stopwatch, timer and alarms are useful too. The auto light is cool, but I have it turned off to save battery as I find I rarely need the light.

I was initially unsure about a resin strap, as I am more accustomed to metal or webbing straps, however I have had no issues with comfort.

My only criticisms are that the light comes only from the bottom of the watch (not all around, and no backlight on the LCD screens) and the buttons can feel a little stiff at times. Also there is no solar or kinetic recharging on this model which is a shame. However these are all extremely minor gripes and I can easily put up with them to have the watch in this all black finish, which I think looks amazing.

2.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't like heat!, 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It did the job nicely for a few months, then in the heat of summer it snapped at the pivot point.

I would not advise leaving it on your windscreen in direct sunlight if the weather is at all hot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works, but you have to be sure not to move the USB end about in your phone too much while in use as it can send static to the TV. The cable is also pretty stiff and I worry that flexing it would cause perminant damage. Honestly I avoid using it and would recomend the Chromecast or MirrorCast wireless devices instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as described, 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This stick of RAM works perfectly and is exactly as described. 8GB is the most a DIMM slot will take on most motherboards and £45 is pretty good value.

Gigabyte GC-WB300D Bluetooth 4.0/Wi-Fi Expansion Card

5.0 out of 5 stars Works on Linux, 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This card works straight out of the box on Ubuntu Linux, with no driver installs necessary (I tested on 64bit 13.10, with the 3.11.0-14-generic kernal, but should work on any modern versions).

The antenna feels solid and sturdy, and can be folded to 0°, 45°, 90°, 135° or 180°. It is also magnetic, so sticks nicely to the top of my case.

The card its self is pretty small, and the USB header cable should be able to reach any Motherboard's headers.

The original (1.0 revision) had a "USB passthrough" which allowed you to connect a USB device (e.g. a wireless mouse receiver, or an always in flash drive) in an effort not to waste a USB header just on the Bluetooth. If your motherboard doesn't have enough headers, however, you could probably use a USB Header Splitter to connect two into one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent gift for private diary, 30 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave this as a gift to a girl who wanted to keep a secure diary of "personal" events in her life.
Excellent - hi quality, great finish - leaver and polished metal - she absolutely loves the lock, and especially the metallic finished page edges. Very professionally looking, and as secure as a book can be.
