3.0 out of 5 stars May be safe but very inconvenient, 23 Aug 2013
I bought this helmet offline after reading security ratings and making my decision purely on that. Now, thankfully I have not had a chance(!) to check how safe the helmet is but having traveled nearly a thousand miles now I have to warn anyone who intends to get this helmet to stay away from it. It is not uncomfortable in shape, wearing is OK. However, the noise level inside is beyond belief. There is literally a tornado blowing in your helmet. Not only is this very very inconvenient but it is also a health matter for your ears. I am not looking to sell this helmet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty useless. Only does 1/3 of its promises (at best), 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this in hope that it was a real good or at least decent quality, cheaper alternative to the more expensive options out in the market. Turned out I was expecting too much.

The packaging and build quality is good. Wasn't expecting anything much better and when I say that, I mean it is not lacking in that respect at all. It is well built (but plastic).

The problem is, you do not hear a thing! Speaking to the pillion rider is sort of OK. Since the mic & ear speakers generate a funny echo, it kind of increases sound and you can hold a conversation (with some effort).

However, it is almost impossible to hear any phone calls. In fact, let aside being able to hold a conversation over the phone, in many cases I could not hear the phone even ringing. That is, when the sound was setup to the highest possible level. This is the main reason I bought it, to be able to make phone calls while I am riding and for that it is useless altogether.

The only thing that it does properly is allowing you to listen to music via bluetooth connection with your phone. Even that is not so good sound quality but at least you do get to hear and understand what is playing.

I have used this on my Nitro Aikido Full Face helmet, which I have bought on the same day as this set and therefore they are both at their best quality. Very upset, returning to the seller at the earliest. I recommend go for a better (more expensive) alternative that does what it says instead of this one that is cheap but doesn't almost do anything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very inspirational and insightful, 24 Nov 2012
This was a very pleasant and informative peace of reading. The book is about the life of Ahmet Ertegun, the Turkish American music producer who is behind major artists like Led Zeppelin, Sonny & Cher, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Rolling Stones, Kid Rock etc.

It gives you a lot information about the life of Ahmet Ertegun (the founding partner of Atlantic Records) but also about the music industry in general and its running.

I definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in popular culture, its behind the scenes events and how the industry has developed over the years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful and as described but very bulky, 24 Nov 2012
This is not my first product of this type and it is my second Tecknet purchase. Previously I bought two smaller versions at once, one for myself and the other for a friend. My friend is still using it, mine somehow developed a fault.

I decided to opt in favor of Tecknet with this purchase too but wanted to get a bigger one this time as I now have a very battery consuming Galaxy S3 along with my S2. The product takes some time to charge it in full (5-7 hours in my observation). It gives you a decent 2-3 full cycle of charges on my S3. So, it really holds on to its advertised promise.

The only downside of it (and this really may be a deal killer for some) is its size and weight. This is not a design fault as with such a strong reserve battery I think it is expected. However it really is not suitable for daily life carrying around, unless you have a bag. Even in most coats you will feel the bulk in your pocket. If you are an outdoorsy person and go camping etc. this is your product! If you are a business person spending most time out of office but without a bag or a car, needing to carry this in your pocket, I would suggest to get a size smaller version of this otherwise great product.


SAMSUNG GALAXY S3 I9300 BLUE GEL CASE COVER + SCREEN PROTECTOR - PART OF THE CONSUMER STORE® ACCESSORIES RANGE
SAMSUNG GALAXY S3 I9300 BLUE GEL CASE COVER + SCREEN PROTECTOR - PART OF THE CONSUMER STORE® ACCESSORIES RANGE

4.0 out of 5 stars As described, good looking cover, 23 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The item is as described, looks good and the color is complimenting the blue S3.

The only minor issue is that the bottom part is coming very close to the charging connection area, thus sometimes causing disconnection too easily. You need to push it properly so it fits in or for a more permanent one time solution, you might slightly cut off a little from the inner edges around the USB hole at the bottom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what you expect, 8 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not much to say except that they are perfectly fine to replace the original once. Sound is as clear as you would expect from this price range (and comparing to the original it is just the same).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Product but notice its shortness (and long delivery time), 8 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product arrived well packaged. They turned out to be very short, which is something I had not noticed when ordered. It is clearly written in the product description so I can not complain about that but be mindful of this.

Also, the items are dispatched from the states and have a very long (2-4 weeks) delivery time. This is something that is not at all mentioned in the listing so if you need hour cables ASAP, this is NOT the supplier to get this from if you are outside the US (mine arrived in approx. 20 days). Otherwise, all appears to be good with the item so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Covers from the original GNR (last studio recording), 14 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Spaghetti Incident? (Audio CD)
For those who are curious about the work of the original GNR line up and their work, don't be mistaken. This is not GNR music but rather covers that they have recorded. Some of these they had been playing from time to time live on stage and some others are first time recordings. They are mainly Punk covers with one very curious recording; a song by the Serial Killer Charles Manson! A very energetic, fun album but certainly not a starter album for anyone who want to discover classic GNR.

Gigaset A580 IP DECT Cordless Phone - Black

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but not perfect (do recommend it though), 11 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first set was faulty. There was an (apparently identified) issue with the firmware of the product so when I called Siemens and explained they immediately advised me to return it. I received the replacement within few days and that worked without any issues.

Dont bother using the handset for the settings. Do it all through the web page and you would have no issues.

One problem I have is the feedback but that mostly happens on the additional handset and not the one that came with the base. Other than that the sound quality is very good even with VOIP calls.

Have not tried Gigaset's own network so can not comment on that.

Not the best material but it is not so much on the "cheap" side either. Overall a good product, especially for the money and the advanced technology that Siemens is known to deliver with this line of product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Efficient, 11 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Received it 2-3 weeks ago. So far, so good. Hooked up with the Gigaset Base station without issue. Delivery was fast (arrived before the Base Set, which was sent by Amazon direct) and packaging was also good. So, thumbs up to the seller.

Settings are pretty easy with the additional handset so really once it works, it works!
