QuiqLite X Red & White LED Light Rechargeable Concealed Flashlight
QuiqLite X Red & White LED Light Rechargeable Concealed Flashlight

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and many options available, 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bright enough for dusk and dawn when the sun is not bright enough, not that it's sunny here in old Blighty.

Red light comes on first, then White, then off. This is much better than other quiqlite torches that turn on white first. This is especially useful to preserve night vision.

The white light is apparently 20lumens and jumps to 75lumens with the button at the back of the torch, but I have not notice a huge jump between the 20 and 75. It definitely does not seem like 20lumens, and the lux may well be different - another torch I have at 9lumens outshines the QuiqLite X. The light produces a nice circle and very even shading from the centre to the circumference. I'll post a picture. Red is a very nice red, not orange nor pink.

The strobe has come in handy at the roadside to alert passers by; as well as moving through crowds when people do not see me coming. T'is also fun to pretend you are an emergency vehicle responding in scenarios.

It's really light so it doesn't pull my shirt down as with many heavier torches (ie. Quiqlite stealth). The swivel that torch is mounted on is great as it is not loose but set in increments of about 15 degrees. This means that the torch does not spin round due to gravity. The clip is nice and secure to attach to shirts, trousers, music stands, hats, shoulder lapels, helmets. The magnetic back has been useful to attach to fridges, vehicles, computers, music stands.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My local hardware shops (market/ camera shops) sell each one for 2.50 - 3.00. So finding 12 for the same price is a bargain. They also last the same amount of time. Well worth the buy and save many pounds on batteries.

2 New & Sealed Decks of Bicycle Playing Cards - 1 Red & 1 Blue
2 New & Sealed Decks of Bicycle Playing Cards - 1 Red & 1 Blue
Offered by Accessory-Shop
Price: 4.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Standard Bicycle Cards Quality, 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great price for two packs of cards. Have served two years up to this point on one pack. They are so smooth and slick. The cushion of air between the card and the table makes for smooth dealing.

They are paper, so handle with care (no wet surfaces/ grubby fingers) and they should last a while

3.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, but not durable, 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Comfortable mouse. It fits my hand perfectly.

Unfortunately it only worked for a year of hard use (8 hours per day including some gaming and button bashing). Previous mice (which were free that came with the computer) have lasted much longer ~ 3 to 5years. So a durability issue here.

But for the price, there is not much to be too disappointed


Company Of Heroes: Tales of Valor (PC)

5.0 out of 5 stars Not so Great for Single player, 27 Dec 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having played all the Company of Heroes games, I am delighted with the purchase.

The single player campaigns are too short and the units are indestructible. There is no base building and this is against the original game (CoH) and Opposing Fronts (COH:OF) and CoH2.

The games puts a nice layer on the Command point system where you have multiple path choices.

Multiplayer uses the same servers as CoH and CoH:OF so there is no discrimination against players who do not own this game.

Worth the money that I paid in November 2011 - 7.60


Skins A200 1/2 Men's Compression Tights
Skins A200 1/2 Men's Compression Tights
Price: 22.99 - 59.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fit, 27 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Waist: 29 inch
Inside Leg: 30 inch
Weight: 60 kg
Size: X-Small

Skins A200 half tights fit very comfortably - about 3 inches above the middle of the knee cap when standing. Good amount of compression and great when I've been inactive for a while so I do not wake up aching.

It does not ride up or slip down on me.

Washed and dried very quickly

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as advertised, 10 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The bag on this webpage is not as advertised: It's not the same bag, but is still a Targus TCG417. The code for the bag received is TCG417-EU Check it out on Targus' website. The pictures I have posted is the actual bag I got. There is no cd/dvd removable case and no mobile phone holder because of this.

I fit an Asus N53SV 15.6" laptop (H270xW390mm) in this case. The laptop is about 5mm too big width-wise for any 16" laptop bag I tried so I had to settle for a 17". As in the posted pictures, I have found that there was wasted space: perhaps because my Laptop isn't very tall.

I won't send it back because it is fit for purpose, just too big heightwise. Also the 2nd from front pocket does not zip all the way down, nor does it zip with the front attaching to the main bag and so it is very floppy. The carry handle is buttoned. I might void the warranty at the expense of making this bag more functionable.

Great delivery! Ordered Friday afternoon, arrived tuesday mornng. The product is just as described and has a good sound. The first time I've bought open ear headphones and they are quite awesome - the ear pads are very comfortable.
