Lowepro Flipside Sport 10L AW Camera Backpack - Galaxy Blue
Lowepro Flipside Sport 10L AW Camera Backpack - Galaxy Blue
Price: £80.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as described..., 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The features shown below the item do not apply to all versions. There is no iPad pocket on the 10L version but yet it does have a removable camera insert. Very misleading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only £3.49 in the supermarket!!!, 6 Dec 2013
I cannot understand why these are so highly priced on Amazon when the local supermarket has them for £3.49. To charge over £7 for the same product is a complete rip-off.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks nothing like the picture, 24 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK, this was cheap and it looks it. Cutout does not fit the tablet correctly with the top section not flush against the device thus obstructing the front facing camera. Also looks nothing like the picture with an insert that covers most if the tablet sides, where is this in the product picture? Gets two stars as the cheap stylus is not bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars No bad, not bad at all, 17 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This screen was purchased to connect to a laptop for photo editing and to games consoles, nothing else.

Happy to report it does both well and the picture quality is stunning at 1080p. The eRGB mode is great for photo editing, comparing it to prints shows a close if not bang on match.

There is a small amount of back light leak on the lower left of the screen but on investigation looks to fair far better most other IPS screens out there. Screen is not to bad on IPS glow either when viewed from angles.

Seems to be 30 pounds more expensive than when I bought it last week for some reason.

Screen lag is minimal on games such as GTA V and GT5.

Recommended purchase, perfect size for editing and gaming at a desk.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice system but..., 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
has a really annoying flaw. It will not correctly identify the source input of sounds for screen display. For example if you have a Sky HD box connected to the Optical (Dolby D set on Box) and you configure the N790 to only use optical in to match HDMI 1 pictures no matter what the source the display will say Dolby Digital 2Ch - this despite there being distinct 5ch sounds.

It clearly only reads what 'would' have come down the HDMI cable (2ch Dolby in the case of Sky - 5.2 is only over Optical - older boxes) DESPITE you telling it you are using the optical.

Basically you never have a clue what sound type you are getting via the optical input.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced here..., 29 April 2013
Nice case, looks great but does not magnetically close.
No need to spend near £50 either - other mobile fun sites have this for £30.

1.0 out of 5 stars Well, Well, Well, 19 Dec 2012
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Another Fun Collectables rip-off. Not content with trying to sell the gup-e BEFORE manufacturers release date (see Octonauts official website announcement) at £135 over the RRP you try the same lark with Inkling. Time to make it my number one task to inform everyone about your policy to rip-off parents. BBC Watchdog first.

1.0 out of 5 stars £79.99!!! - No chance (now £99.99!!!), 10 Dec 2012
This review is from: Octonauts Gup E (Toy)
I'm sorry but this is way, way higher than the RRP. £79.99 is a massive rip-off and clearly just cashing in on Christmas. There are plenty other Gups to get for now. This one can wait until the 26th.

Edit - just in case the change the price later...

Only 1 left in stock.
Dispatched from and sold by Fun Collectables.

Upped to £99.99 - I'm buying one when it is officially released by the makers. It's not on any Santa list. No need to spend big buck, buck, bucks....

The Documentary is great however this has been on TV in HD so I just Sky+'d it.

This product can't hold a basic umbrella and SB900 flash without the ball head moving. Disappointed by this as it claims to be able to do both!
