1.0 out of 5 stars Fake, 20 Jan. 2015
Falsely advertised as a charger , this device the transformer t200ta does not charge via usb no nmatter what they say, it states very clearly on the asus webste that it does not charge via usb and that you will need a speciic charger, this is not it and is false advertising.

Not For transformer t200ta. As clearly stated this is a usb charging cable nothing more and does not charge the device it is advertised to charge namely the t200ta.

This chargr will not charge the transformer t200ta and i would check with the manufacturere whether it charges the other devices as if they lie about it charging the tranformer t200ta they coud be lying about the others

5.0 out of 5 stars I think i am going to love this thing, 30 Dec. 2014
Sometimes i wish i could throttle people, at the moment i have just set this up and have a roughly 100" screen with a picture that is more than just watchable.
Within 2 minutes and no more of unwrapping it was up and a movie running, ok so it took me a few minutes to realise that the little picture in the middle of the screen was not all i was going to get and pressing play got it to play full screen, very confused for a moment with trying to find any setting that adjusted the video playback from a hard drive through usb1, but then again i was just getting a preview until i pressed play, embarrassing but absolutely no reason to remove a star.
Also i got mine which is identical to this in every way from Ebay for lets than £80 and got it delivered within 4 days just before xmas.

I think i am going to love this thing, it is very clear excellent picture size when having the projector on top of a cupboard and playing onto the biggest wall in the room.

i suspect most of the bad reviews are from people that do not have the relevant IQ level to use one of these devices and they probably struggle to get any piece of technology working unless they have someone helping them.no shame on them but don't blame the tools etc etc

But seriously the setup could not be better and all i would say is that they should have a big press to play advise warning across the screen when initially starting a video file from a usb hard drive.

All i need now is to either get a screen or paint the wall.

Best purchase other than the nanorobts over the xmas period.

EDIT: After using this for a while i realized it was even more amazing than i initially believed, seriously if you want to try out a projector to see if it is for you this is the one to get, remember to look around for the best prices as this increased in price over xmas on here.i got it from ebay at a much better price from a very well known ebayer.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crazy Price, 1 July 2014
These are easy to use and make testing simple and a basic two process system, click finger and then put drop on cassette strip , simple easy and friendly to use.

but honestly at this rip off price i would not even consider buying these cassettes, the whole system with the test machine and batteries and lancet and 50 count cassette costs £22. meanwhile this is £40 for 2 cassettes .

It is worth buying the whole system and using the cassette provided and selling the system on ebay for £20 and then buying another cassette single pack on ebay for £15.

Crazy price for a system that works, a big ripoff in my opinion, cassettes are much cheaper elsewhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars I actually used this..., 6 Jun. 2014
OK i thought i would create a review of this one day after using it. I have not really seen a true review, but then again i can guess why.

My f$%^£$%ing arm is dead . I mixed two bags of premix concrete over an afternoon and the mess was immediately evident, dont forget when using this that you have to push the stone into all the corners of the mould and the stones in concrete are rather large so it takes a lot of time to get it right. The concrete mix is supossed to be just wet, not runny but i could not do that as then it was inpossib le to get a flat surface as it was just stone and a small amount of flowing cement between the stones.

Eventually after adding more and more water i got it in and could not see the stone, whihc was the idea, to have the flat surface and not have stones from the concrete as the surface. Leave it to dry overnight and come back to stone looking surface as the concrete settles when it sets.

My arm in the morning from mixing and trying to lay the concrete is destroyed, i cant even pick up a cup of coffee i am in so much pain.

Yes it is easy to use but damn it is hard to do.

I would not suggest anyone try this if they do not have lots of arm strength. Just get someone like a bodybuilder to do it for you, or a real builder.

I am worried that in a few weeks of doing this i will have a right arm that is really muscular and people will think i am a addict to self masturbation.

A few things to remenber when using this , an electric concrete mixer helps to prevent you giving up before you even get started, a concrete mix with smaller balast or stones is advised to get in the little corners. Use a trown with a blunt head to mix and pat down concrete in the mould this takes a lot of practice but you should be a professional after a few dozen moulds,just as you finish your project and start physiotherapy on your arm.

I would post photos of the begining of my project but i do not have the steength in my arm to lift the camera....i will in a few days whn i have recovered please excuse my spelling i have other things on my mind, one being how i am going to cope with the pain.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sphero Windows Phone 8, 25 April 2014
Why no app for the windows phone environment seriously, this is something that needs to happen faster as the windows phone 8 is starting to outsell the iPhone in many markets. And i want to get one but would be unable to play with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Price, 29 Mar. 2014
Seriously, this is getting out of hand here, the price of these books is crazy as they are so short, and look here two of the books at the Eden project together and they don't even reach 500 pages. I am so tired of downloading books only to read them overnight and be left wanting more. The first book in this two book book was on sale for £9 on its own and now this book is over £4.

I cannot share or swap or give away a digital book, once I have read it, I delete it, I am not one to read a book more than once.

I love this author and his writing style, but there are many others out there that I like more. I want to support Brett but not at the prices they are asking for. I guess i will have to return to the free book section which is a pity as this really was a good read. I would be prepared to pay £2 for a 500 page book and even then i would feel it is a little overpriced for what it is.

1.0 out of 5 stars Price, 8 Feb. 2014
Seriously this was £7.06 at one stage and the price has just been rising almost every day. I dont understand how data has become so expensive, Three is making a bundle from charging three times the price they started with on these sims. Sadly it looks like there is collusion between the network providers on price, as they are all increasing their charges regularly.

If anything the £7 for 3gb seems a little high, I would say that £5 for 10gb would be a price that reflects the market but even this seems low, normal use on an internet connection is around 100gb a month so if they provided a sim with 100gb for £20 i am sure they would still be making a ton and people would buy it more, Three give unlimited data to their one plan users but do not allow you to use tethering on a tablet.Shame on them for this, i understand their network is being upgraded to cope with the increase in people using tablets and that they have to share a limited amount of bandwidth, but they are making a lot of money and if it was used to improve their network the prices should go down as millions start using it for their tablets.

I will not buy this again and will stop my wife from buying as soon as my broadband is installed after my home move. Maybe if enough people do this they will lower the price again and give people what they need to improve their browsing experience, damn on 1gb i am scared of watching even a few videos on youtube, which is not the way the internet was supposed to be used.

Just think if you go to talktalk and get the basic package for £2.50 a month and then add the cheaper fiber you will get 36mb download speeds and unlimited data all for £18 a month, hopefully in the future talktalk will implement similar to BT where everyone who has faster broadband is a hotspot for all other talk talk customers. Damn the day that happens is the day three will lose millions of customers becasue they are so expensive.


Rest Assured Silhouette Latina Memory Luxury 1000 Mattress, King
Rest Assured Silhouette Latina Memory Luxury 1000 Mattress, King

1.0 out of 5 stars New Mattress, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seriously avoid this mattress , the top layer of padding on this was not thick enough and at the price they are selling it for it is a complete waste unless you weight under 60kg i weigh 105kg and am 6ft tall. I had a problem from the start with this mattress and did not realise it was the mattress, i eventually after a few months of waking or turning during the night with pain in my hips had my wife look at where the pain was, and she was amazed, there were ridges in my skin almost 2 mm deep from the metal inside the mattress these were also on my shoulder, i called amazon and for the first time did not get very good service, they advised i call the manufacturer, so i called and they said call Amazon. I am taking photos of my side when i wake in the morning and forwarding them to both Amazon and Rest assured and hopefully will get some compensation for what i have had to endure over the last few months, i think it has gradually got worse and worse as the months have gone on and that is why i did not realsie it was the mattress at first i thought it was the sheets we were using as they did not fit perfectly and shrivelled up a bit during the night, but after getting new sheets that fit perfectly i realised it was the bed.

Please whatever you do do not buy this mattress and if you have and only read the comments afterwards let everyone know in your comments the experience you have had.

I initially gave this 5 stars as it looked good with the black piping and design and it was very comfortable until you have lay on it for more than an hour or two so i am obviously giving it a 1 star now.
