2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality, 22 Dec 2012
Quality is just not there for this. Looks smart and back plate clips in pad securely. However folding the front cover up to make it stand does not work well. It is ok for the "typing" position (45degrees), but the stand does not fold together well enough to hold it up more vertically. It felt like it would fall over and damage pad.
After about 5 minutes use some of the covering was flaking off at the hinge point.
Not worth it. Have ordered apple smart case and spent a bit more money.
Good returns service from seller.

3.0 out of 5 stars good case but closure broken after 6 months, 12 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a smart leather-feel case. Looks good with contrasting lighter leather-ish stuff on the inside.
Not too bulky with two very tight pockets on the front - will fit one card each or one card and a few notes.
The cut-out slightly closes down the camera view so best to take it out before your masterpiece photos.

However - after about 6 months the magnet that holds it closed has slipped and it no longer closes properly.
Probably still worth it for the money!

These are a bargain.
Work fine as a glasses retainer. A lot cheaper than branded equivalents.
I have bought two!

4.0 out of 5 stars fast and works well so far, 2 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great value - the best price to capacity ratio I could find.
It is certainly fast - not sure how it compares to others but things load speedily.
It was very easy to install in my (new-build) case as the case was designed to have SSD-adaptable drive cases (my case is the Fractal Design Define Mini - recommended). I set the SATA port it is connected to to AHCI mode through my BIOS, and it all worked fine on my Gigabyte FM3/A75 MoBo.
In terms of space it seems ample so far - Windows 7 64-bit, Office 2007 and a standard set of browsers, printer drivers etc all installed and I still have 60Gb free.
It comes with a 3-year warranty. Nothing else in the box - you can buy it with a kit of cables and stuff, but I din't need any of that. You can buy most of the components of the kit on here for much less than the extra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, works fine, 2 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived rapidly and works as expected.
Fits into a spare expansion slot on your case, with the appropriate cable to plug into a USB header on your motherboard. Works fine.
The metal is quite thin, and the USB slots are basically just female ended cables that are screwed to it. So it does bend somewhat when you plug things in, and does not feel terribly robust. But then it is £2.50 - can't really argue at that price.
Easy way to add two USB slots cheaply if you have spare headers - which most modern motherboards seem to do.
Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars moderate, 9 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Poor.
The charger broke after about 6 months, luckily without taking out phone or anything else.
The phone holder rarely sticks to the windscreen, and normally falls off after about five minutes.
Wouldn't recommend iphone satnav anyway, it is not fast enough for driving.
Put the money towards a TomTom.

5.0 out of 5 stars good spare charger, 23 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good reliable charger.
Smart in black with a removable USB sync/charge cable.
No problems charging in the UK. Not tried abroad yet.
Quality is good and it has held up well after a couple of months.

All in all a good spare charger at a lot less than apple equivalent. And more than the cheap ones available on here, but at better quality. Having bought a cheap in-car charger from here that doesn't work, I would recommend paying a little more to get a decent product like this that will last.

Updated - still works well after a year. Have bought a second one to leave at work. Works fine abroad too. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars very complete set, 2 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very complete set of drill bits and scewdriver bits. Quality seems to be good after a couple of weeks use. Also includes a multi-angle ratchet screwdriver, torch etc.
Good buy, hope it will be all I need for lots of DIY!

Updated after 18 months- drill bits still working well, useful and full set. Several ones I have never needed to use. The screwdriver broke after a few months (admittedly of some pretty hard DIY use)
