Overboard Adventure Waterproof Duffel Bag - Black, 90 Litres
Overboard Adventure Waterproof Duffel Bag - Black, 90 Litres
Price: £59.73

4.0 out of 5 stars Good bag, but even better if you take the trouble to reinforce backpack strap buckles, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has survived international travel quite well so far. However, if you have 27kg contents inside, don't try to lift the bag on just one of the backpack straps! I did that and one of the plastic buckles cracked! I have since reinforced the backpack strap buckles with string (lashing the 2 parts of the plastic buckle together) and gaffer tape (taping over the string lashing), and it has worked well since. The material is thick and sturdy, and it is a well-made bag overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable and useful, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the most comfortable money belt I have ever owned - it fits closely and is discreetly hidden under my t-shirt, even if the t-shirt is a snug fit. It's perfect for keeping cash and a debit card handy. It can't fit larger items such as passports, but I'm mostly using it for short day trips and don't need to bring larger items with me, so it's perfect for my needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A sturdy stand like this one is usually much more expensive so I never thought to buy one. But my old folding stand has annoyed me enough now, since it's really difficult to write notes on the music when it's on the folding stand; and if you get one of those stands with holes in the desk then you risk your pencil poking through if you're working on sheet music. This Tiger stand is fantastic - it solves all the problems mentioned above, and it doesn't wobble, it has a solid large desk area, and it was inexpensive. You can buy a bag to carry it around too (which is great for going to rehearsals). Highly recommended.
NB: I think they're selling like hot cakes, because it went out of stock shortly after I first put it on my wish list, and then I had to wait a while before more stock came and I snapped one up!


Tiger Orchestral Music Stand Bag - Heavy Duty Carry Case
Tiger Orchestral Music Stand Bag - Heavy Duty Carry Case
Price: £16.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price, it exceeded my expectations, as there is an inside pocket for the legs, which separates it from the main space for the rectangular desk part. It would have been even better if it could have had a separate compartment for music and maybe small pockets for pencils etc. But that may be asking too much for the price.


Genuine LG KU990 Viewty Battery

Offered by Glitzy Gizmos
Price: £8.95

1.0 out of 5 stars Not genuine, 4 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This battery was advertised as both "genuine" and "new" - it was neither. Not only was the sticker different from the original (the graphic was almost the same, but it was the "wrong way up", and was wrapped around the battery with the LG logo on the other side, compared to the genuine item), but it also showed wear especially along the edges where the sticker folded around the body of the battery (the black colour was rubbed off to show silver) and also on the gold-plated contacts marks were clearly visible, indicating it had previously been in contact with battery terminals on a phone or charger. I am after a genuine new item, and have initiated the returns procedure for this one.

Switching Power Supply Design, 3rd Ed.
Switching Power Supply Design, 3rd Ed.
by Abraham I. Pressman
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £64.43

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best on the subject, 25 April 2012
As a practising electronics engineer, I was looking for a crash course in switching power supplies, as I had to design one that was more complex than I was comfortable with, for a particular project. After buying and reading several books on the subject, I concluded that this book is the most helpful, and easiest to follow. It is written in plain English, with helpful cross references between different chapters, and written in a way that enables you to start your own design by following the explanations. At the very least, you will gain a much better understanding of the diverse design issues involved, when you next see someone else's design. This is not the cheapest book on the subject, but well worth the money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, 25 April 2012
As a practising electronics engineer, I was looking for a crash course on power supply design, as that is not my area of expertise, and I needed to design a supply that was more complex than ones I was comfortable with. However, having bought a number of books to help me out, this was the least helpful of all. If you are looking for a good book on switching power supplies, I would thoroughly recommend "Switching Power Supply Design" by Pressman, Billings and Morey. That book is written in plain English and much easier to follow.

1.0 out of 5 stars What's so good about this book?, 14 May 2008
Full of chit-chatty woffle and doesn't cut to the chase. Lots of opinions about technology from the author but very few practical instructions of how to get anything done. Maybe it's supposed to be read like a story book, but it's useless as a handy reference guide, especially if you already have general electronics knowledge and just want to find out how to make LabVIEW work - a nightmare with or without a book!
