5.0 out of 5 stars Good as new, 5 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brought this for my samsung s3. I'd had the phone for 1.5 years and the battery was on its way out, a full charge would last 8 hours of light use or <2 hours of gps.

new battery installed and now my phone is goodas new, lasts two days on full charge with battery to spare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic budget monitor, 14 Feb 2012
Delivery: I used Amazon Prime in order to get next day delivery and I couldn't have been happier. The item was delivered the next day at 8:30am. Packaging was good and robust without damage - so seems like the package was looked after properly by the delivery company.

Design: The monitor is a fairly standard black design with an acceptable finish. It's not a work of art but it's not ugly either - functional is the best way to describe it. I don't have any problems with the monitor being shaky when typing as some people are suggesting - I think the desk may be their problem or they didn't screw the base on tight enough.

The tilt is fine, a bit stiff but that's fine. You don't get a great amount of tilt range on it -5/+10 deg. It is quite a chunky display considering it's LED, but only as chunky as my usual LCDs.

Display: IPS is fantastic, the screen is viewable in all its colour from any position where you can actually see the screen. The display is also bright with excellent colour reproduction - I'm not a photographer or similar but for gaming and TV this seems very good to me. Clearly it won't be as good as some of your higher end monitors. HD works a treat though.

Inputs: HDMI, DVI-D, VGA. Does what it says on the tin... I can confirm it works with PS3 at full 1080p

Outputs: 3.5mm jack, sound is decoded from the HDMI input and is provided in stereo on this output. How useful this is depends on your set-up, for me I use it as a headphone connection for gaming, while the PC remains plugged directly into the sound system.

The one let down of this display is the lack of thought when designing the input connectors. There quite fiddly to get to and it lacks a cable tidy so all the cables are quite visible from the front and do detract from the display.

However this is a fantastic budget monitor and perfect if you're looking for good functionality.

1.0 out of 5 stars broke, fixed it, broken again, 19 Jan 2011
The 'thick' PVC just kept breaking arround the edge of the seat (at the seams). I fixed it several times but it would just rip in a new place. not at all impressed

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic case!, 19 Jan 2011
Love this case, i had been carrying my new phone arround in its orriginal box for a few weeks while looking for just the right case. And this is it.

The soft silicon cover provides all round protection against knocks and scrapes, fully covering the sides and corners. While all buttons, ports and camera are totaly accessable. The buttons are no harder to use, in fact i'd say their function has been improved by the case. I use to find it a bit fiddly to turn the phone on but with the case thats not a problem; equaly i use to find when turning the phone on its side i would press the volume buttons by accident, no problems with that now either.

The Soft case is then covered by a hard shell which covers the back and the sides (not the corners but there protected by silicon so thats fine). Again the shell gives access to all the functionality of the phone and better still a raised section arround the camera lens hugely reduces the risk of ruining that lovely 8meg camera!

Screen protector is standard just be sure that theres no dust on the screen to start with and give it a little time to settle in. At first mine wasn't totaly sticking to the screen and i had a few air bubbles but after a little bit of use it settles in and you cant tell its there.

One issue i found was a slight reduction in the GPS signal, but really only a slight reduction so only noticable when you have poor signal! So please dont let this put you off the case!

Extreamly happy with this case, i can relax knowing that my phone is safe from the ware and tear of day to day use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your bike is safe as houses!, 28 Oct 2009
This is a fantasticaly engineered lock that leaves you with peace of mind.

From its rubberised outer case and its dust cover to its 5 lazer cut keys this lock has been designed with practicality in mind.

The locking mech is anti-drill and anti-shatter, so confedent are bulldog that they put a $1500 guarantee on it (only valid in the staes tho).

I lost one of the keys, and had to leave my bike in the center of town for a week and it was still there when i returned with one of the spare keys! that is a ture testiment to this locks deterent and security.

Just be carful not to snap the keys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent film scanner, for horizon 202, 1 May 2009
This is an excelent film scanner, quick and easy but with a very high resolution. The film holders are a bit flimsy but work fine. Also this scanner is able to process panaramic film from cameras such as the Horizon 202 as well as medium format film.
