5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully put together puzzle game, 28 Mar. 2016

This review is from: Monument Valley (App)
Really different, an excellently challenging platform game. My only disappointment in it is that it is far too short!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for keeping wandering cables in one place, 21 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these to anchor the several usb charging cables I have littered about my desk and they work well. Why 4 stars? The openings are made for a thicker cable that a standard usb (and I am using 3 different types) and they all pop out of the clip if I pull them ever so slightly hard, so I think the slots are better suited to a thicker cable, like an hdmi lead or power lead. That said, my usb cables now don't stray across my desktop so I am more than happy with them and would recommend them.

I have only needed to use the spudger to open my Nexus to sort the usb socket, but it worked brilliantly and so much better than my fingernail, and unlike my fingernail, didn't cause any damage to the glass panel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quailty cable, 21 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really good quality and delivered a higher charge to my Hudl 2 than the cable I was using. The cable seems to be well built and seems to be stiff enough that the wires inside shouldn't break easily.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrongly advertised dimensions make this item useless for my needs., 29 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good item but their measurements are wrong which means this item is too short for my needs! Surely it can't be difficult to make sure that the advertised stats or dimensions match the actual item?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for the price, 9 Oct. 2015

Arrived quickly and did the job of helping to drive in fence posts easily. The only moan I would have is that it uses a rubber band and not a releasable strap to hold it onto a post, but at this price, it is a trivial complaint and easily worked around.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read but no Lord of the Rings, 10 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I understand this book has a target audience of 5th grade upwards, and I know it is free, but the story and overall plot are NOT original and in no way should it be compared with Lord of the Rings. It does move along, but the author(s) seem to get confused between reportage and 3rd person styles of writing which jars. Another dislike is the incorrect use of words which are scattered throughout. If you are even remotely unsure of the meaning of a word, look it up, e.g. 'he is fighting rampant now.' Look up rampant. Given the age of the target audience who are impressionable, please, please use the correct words.
English has an impressive collection of words as well, so again, repetition can be avoided which further enriches the story: for example, the use of atop when the use of astride would much better describe the scene and break up the repetition.
My final comment is that the author(s) mange to get their tenses mixed up. They correctly use past tense, but from time to time they slip in a present tense which is not correct.
However, it is still an enjoyable read, and hopefully the author(s) will take this review in the manner it is intended and hopefully use some of these points to help improve future works.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well enough and easy to read the display, 3 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems to work, only insofar as all of my devices seem to be charging at the rate they are supposed to (using this gizmo to check). One thing it doesn't do is allow you to check the actual charging cable as there is no way to connect it between a micro usb cable and the charging device so you can test the power the device is getting via its charging cable. That seems like a bit of an ommission and one I should have thought of when researching these gizmos.

That said, the display is bright enough to read in the dark which is great and attached cable allows it to be twisted for those sockets that are upside down, which can't be said of the gizmos use a direct connection.
