Helix Gulgul 13 inch Performance Pencil Case GL2041
Price: 6.17

4.0 out of 5 stars fits nicely, 4 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for something which not only carries pens/pencils and the usual writing and drawing tools but could carry some of my more lengthy items such as my hand held scanner and a 12" ruler and this does the job perfectly.
I am Just hoping my luck holds with the full length zip, I have had bad luck with zips failing long before the fabric of the case wears out.

This review is from: Adobe Reader (App)
Tried unsuccessfully to download and install Adobe Flash on my Kindle fire HD, 7 times,
Had no luck whatsoever, Adobe apparently have abandoned this app and its no longer included on new Kindles so anyone who buys anything which requires flash player will have absolutely no luck whatsoever of actually accessing the data they paid for.

1.0 out of 5 stars A book with strings, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What they don't tell you before they sell you the book is that you are required to instal flash player to your Kindle before you can use it.
There are a large number of files within the book which visually display the concepts and enabling the reade to understand th written explanations.
Flash player has not been installed on kindle fire HD so it's a nightmare and lots of grinding of teeth trying to download it and still having a stable platform after wards.

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Iron Man 2 (Amazon Instant Video)
After the first 30 minutes the plot was formed and what followed was entirely predictable, good viewing for the younger members of the house but for adults it was a bit too formulaic as to what was going to happen next.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After looking at several types of camera I opted for this as it was the only one with a 5 star rating.
I am getting very cynical about the reviews on products on this site as it isn't the first time something given 5 stars has turned put to be less than adequate.
The manual is was translated into English very badly, the diagrams in it showed a completely different watch and the descriptions were laughable.
In use there was no clear indication as to which function was in operation, as the flashing lights which were supposed to be either blue or red indicating the function in use actually came on together (so much for quality control) having tried unsuccessfully for a day to get it to work as a voice recorder and still camera with the net result of only getting silent video I gave up and informed Amazon of my request for a refund as it was obviously not what was described.

4.0 out of 5 stars WELL DESIGNED BUT AWKWARD, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lamp has a max rating of 60w unfortunately the custom made bulb holder cannot be changed so choice of bulbs with a sms (small Edison screw) is restricted to a small number of low wattages.
as a wall light it works but due to the limited wattages in the bulb which fit there is not a great deal of light actually illuminating the main part of the room.

1.0 out of 5 stars COUNTERFEITED BOOK BUYER BEWARE., 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As this is a set book that is required by all trainees who must use it for reference when sitting the open book exam, there is naturally an aversion to paying the full purchase price of 65 or more,
Unfortunately this selling price has prompted the "make a fast buck and move on" crowd to get in on the act, there are a number of counterfeit copies of the original guide on sale which means after having paid over 400 for a course some students will be sitting the open-book exam with a flawed copy which has the wrong values in their tables or the wrong information in their text used as reference.
To check if yours is an original Look at page 332 column 5 there is an increase in the current carrying values for a succession of cables of increasing CSA until 6mm where is actually drops below that of 4 mm then it nearly doubles for 10mm.
On a course of 22 students 14 had copies which were useless forgeries and only discovered because their calculations were wildly different to the rest of their classmates.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could do better, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A cheap and cheerful lanyard, there is not much that can be said about a product as simple as this except it could be manufactured a little bit longer as the short length is a bit restrictive when used on the move and carrying other equipment.
