3.0 out of 5 stars Cleans well, for a while ..., 5 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At first I liked this product, a lot, but a couple of issues soon revealed themselves:

1) The brush is not completely sealed when retracted into the pen meaning it can easily be contaminated with dirt & grime.

2) The cleaning head at the other end of the pen didn't last long and soon (after 5 or 6 cleans of a 77mm filter) started to feel, and sound, like it had eroded to hard plastic. At that point, I stopped using it in case it was scratching/damaging the filter's glass and/or coatings.

Great while it lasted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does as it says on the can, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thicker and stronger than I expected, it fits the Canon 6D precisely and, unlike iPhone protectors I've applied in the past, was bubble free.

Fitting was straight forward and a two step process:

1) Peel away the #1 cover and slowly apply to the camera's screen (which was easy to align due to the protector's rigidity)
2) Peel away the #2 cover.

Easy peasy.

I did take the precaution of cleaning the screen 1st with my own screen wipes and then dusted it off with the cloth supplied in the packaging (which, on its own, may do if you don't have any wipes).

Can't fault the product, the prompt delivery or the supplier!

1.0 out of 5 stars Just like bubble-and-squeak ..., 15 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Keep Out! (Kindle Edition)
... this book is a mish-mash of the left overs.

Each subject is tackled briefly.
There's no indication of any real, new research or conclusions.
Much of the subject matter is simply ridiculous (such as monsters and UFOs in the London underground - couldn't stop laughing at that one).

Perhaps the target audience are pre-teenage school kids rather than gullible adults such as me (who should have known better)?

My recommendation would be to save your hard earned (especially at the current, over inflated, high price).

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Stunning, 30 Sept. 2011
A well made, well balanced and beautiful looking stand.

Has limitation in terms of the number of devices you can fit underneath the TV but we found ample room for a surround-sound and Xbox (with space remaining - for a satellite box for example).

The glass shelf is attractive and strong enough to hold our surround-sound but it wouldn't withstand a toddler standing on it.

The TV sits higher than it perhaps would on a cabinet or your average shelf system.

Be prepared to spend a while constructing as comes in flat pack.
Also take your time reading the build instructions as there are some potential "gotchas".
You WILL have lots of nuts & bolts left over. These, I think, are to support the fitting of any TV.

Packaging is excellent so you should received in a pristine item.

Look great!
