3.0 out of 5 stars Would be good if not for the sleeves, 16 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered an S, and had to return it, as the sleeves were too short. A similar jumper you'd buy in a high street store would have much longer sleeves for the same width and length (but would also be twice as expensive). Otherwise, looks OK.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs a mat to work, poor scroll wheel, 31 Oct. 2014
Two drawbacks:
1. Needs a mat to work, and it is not reflected in the description.
2. Poor scroll wheel. The motion is very coarse, and it scrolls either too fast or to slow. Also, uncomfortable to use as middle button, as it is quite easy to press it sideways (it seems to be some programmable function) instead of straight down (and vice versa).

Got 2 of them. One is ok, one connects to the 3.5 jack very poorly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical cheap adapter, 31 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm pretty sure, when I was buying it, the description didn't say that it was a MONO adapter. Otherwise, it is ok. Not good, not bad either.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poorly designed, 31 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An instance of poor design. Hard to pack as it does not open fully, and the laptop compartment is placed in such a way that the laptop gets squeezed right in between of all the packed stuff. Also, uncomfortable to wear, and the wheels produce loud noise.

Otherwise, it is ok. For me, carries enough for a 2-3 day trip.


De'Longhi DES12 Compact Dehumidifier - 12 Litre
De'Longhi DES12 Compact Dehumidifier - 12 Litre

3.0 out of 5 stars Works fine, but quite noisy, 12 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The biggest problem with this guy is the amount of noise it produces. For the most part, this is because the unit vibrates, and something inside (probably, also the tray) rattles. It is not possible to sleep in the same room, and I could only work when listening to music in earphones.

Otherwise, it does the job. Removes moisture from the bathroom and can keep humidity at 50-60% in a small studio throughout the winter.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for home use, 30 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite weak (handles 1-2 sheets well, 3-4 just barely); quickly overheats (then a safety switch trips and you have to wait ~15 mins); small shreddings bin, and when it fills, there's risk that the cutters get jammed; very messy to empty as when you open the tray, the shreddings and paper dust easily get on the floor; often produces long strips instead of confetti. So, evenly mediocre item. It could be worse.

I also noticed that it works better (shreds faster, produces less stripes and more confetti) if I run it on reverse for a few seconds every now and then.


Derwent HB Graphic Pencil

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice pencil, but harder than expected, 30 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The pencil seems to be of good quality. The wood is a bit crumbly, but that's not a big deal. Unfortunately, their HB is quite a bit harder HB should be (more like H). Not what I wanted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than nothing, I guess, 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seem OK-ish overall. Sound is not great (feels a bit dim). Besides, they sound would occasionally disappear which I'm currently blaming on a faulty input cable coming with them.

Audio-Technica ATH M 35 Headphone

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice headphones, 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Look solid and well-built, and are comfortable to wear. Sound is fine for my unsophisticated ear, and they seem to be well-isolated (so that people around won't have to enjoy your music with you).
