This is a fantastic tripod for the money. Loads of features and very well made. I think you'd need to spend considerably more to beat this.

Very we'll made for the money. Does the job as for storing by collection of old Timex watches. Of course if your more into collecting high end Swiss items you may want to spend more on real leather?

3.0 out of 5 stars LED's slowly failing, 22 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought 4 of these lamps 6 months ago. 1 of the bulbs has lost 7 LEDs two 3 and one just 1. Also the ones left don't seem as bright as they once were. They are cheap, but it seems you get what you pay for!

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well with my iPad, 16 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to use with my iPad and have found no significant problems with these headphones. Sound quality is excellent, they're reasonably comfortable (for on ear type) and the range is surprisingly good (10m or so depending on obstructions). I found them easy to connect, battery life is adequate and build quality is very good. I've not tried the competitors but these seem good to me. I've knocked one star just because the on ear design means they do get uncomfortable after prolonged wearing (couple of hours or so).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, 25 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as replacement to my slightly too large Ti wedding ring. That cost £110, this is £15 and there's no difference in quality. Comfortable to wear and resists scratches reasonably well. To me it appears slightly chunkier in the flesh than in the photo.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great balance of quality and price, 25 Jun. 2012

I've had these a while and I've not managed to damage them yet. All the sizes you commonly need, my only gripe is the rack is a bit fiddly to get the keys back into. However, they'd have to cost more for a better holder.

Valve stem is a good length and of course Continental are a number one for cycle tyres, so quality is guaranteed. Most of all the price is very good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but dated interface, 25 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought this radio to use in the kitchen for which it's an ideal size. The sound quality is good for a single speaker and the tactile black finish gives it an attractive quality look and feel. Due to our poor dab and FM reception we mostly use it as an internet radio. Setup is quick an simple, however in use it's quite clunky to work through the menu system, but worst of all the radio suffers numerous hang ups and occasionally freezes completely, which can only be resolved by switching off and on again. This happens mostly when trying to fast forward through a program. I'm afraid I'm a bit down on this radio as I've started using my iPad with headphones as an Internet radio and it works so much better, which is hardly fair as it is a much more sophisticated device. However it does confirm that the scrolling issue is due to the Pure and not the radio station server.

Simple cheap cycle computer which has the advantage over the similarly priced Halfords offerings of a larger screen. Button can be a bit recalcitrant to cycle through functions (but then other makes seem the same). I've had mine for 500 miles with no real problems, which is more than a lot of people with wireless versions would say.

Bottle does taint the water at first but this does fade with use. Cage is reasonably light and grips the bottle perfectly. Approx 700ml capacity is ideal. As a previous reviewer said there's no reason to buy anything more expensive.
