1.0 out of 5 stars Serious problems, 18 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Slow to power up. Will not work properly with HD TVs in any combination of ratio settings. Constantly auto-adjusted resolution even when auto-adjust turned off. Returned for refund.

2.0 out of 5 stars Excellent design, lacking in build quality, 2 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this case to replace a deficient Casemate one. The design of this is a lot better: it is nice and stable in both typing and viewing positions. Unfortunately the materials and finish are lacking on the product I received: a few minor scuffs from the factory, and plastic casing had a spot of soft-touch paint missing. Over the next two weeks the product deteriorated, with paint rubbing off and the thin faux-leather wearing through on corners. Eventually I returned it for a refund! The search continues...

2.0 out of 5 stars Auto-off is a nightmare, 18 Jun 2013
This is nicely designed, slimline, and of high build quality. Unfortunately, though, when the cover is folded behind the device, it frequently triggers the magnetic auto-off feature on the Nexus 7. This is infuriating!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 8 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They look good, and I was impressed at first. However, they don't cope well with being put in the dishwasher (in spite of being labelled "dishwasher safe"). The blades of several of the knives have become rough and jagged, and the end of one of them broke off. I've learned my lesson -- don't cheap out on kitchen knives!

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute rubbish, 13 May 2012
Not much more to say. One of the mugs cracked and broke into two the first time hot water was poured into it. That's a bit of a drawback.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this album, 8 Jan 2012

Short verses, strong melodies, sparing texture, acoustic and synthetic elements: this is just my cup of cha. And a great cover to boot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Attractive, sturdy, and inexpensive, 31 Dec 2011

Like most Luminarc products, these glasses feel very sturdy. The glass is thick and dishwasher-safe. They are also compact and very nicely shaped; a refreshing, minimalist change from the largely tasteless cut-glass alternatives!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice product, boring game., 31 Dec 2011

This review is from: Stirling Fox Goplay Ludo (Toy)
This is a nicely produced little tin, and is visually attractive. The magnets are smaller than I expected and might easily be lost down the back seat of a car. The same applies to the dice, which is also a bit cheap and nasty, and doesn't really roll properly. My main frustration, however, was that I had completely forgotten what a boring and futile game Ludo is; but that's not the manufacturer's fault!


Just Good Friends: Towards a Lesbian and Gay Theology of Relationships
Just Good Friends: Towards a Lesbian and Gay Theology of Relationships

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book, 31 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first book I've read which truly subverts both the dominant hetero-normative and gay-rights agendas. Stuart's argument is highly original: she examines lesbian and gay experiences as a way of deepening our understanding of all relationships, rather than as a way of supporting more conventional claims for gay rights, which tend simply to mimic hetero-normative concepts (evident in particular in the debate over marriage). The author asks us to reconsider the apartheid between our "non-sexual" and our "sexual" relationships, and proposes a healthier and more inclusive Christian attitude of embodied love, affection, mutuality, and commitment over against our present dualistic and patriarchal bonds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good case for the price, 31 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The case has an attractive, well-designed flock exterior with feature stitching. The internal casing that holds the tablet is a little bit flimsy and the shaping isn't perfect -- my HTC sits very slightly wonky in it. But this is barely noticeable. The stand uses a magnetic clasp, and works well. Overall, it's is a good product for the price.
