5.0 out of 5 stars The best. Why pay more ?, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Disposable, but why not buy two or three or more ? Not expensive at all. They stick very firmly to the screen and don't move once in place. Very decent people to deal with. A choice of colours. What's not to like? Why pay more?

Very reasonable value for money. Decent quality brand. Nothing much more to say about it. I'd buy another one if I needed it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Offers no protection if your phone is dropped, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice looking case, decent material but the ribbon onto which the leather pull tab was attached eventually frayed and severed, and a little later I saw my phone land in this case on its top edge- £150 for a new screen. Better to buy something that will actually protect the phone in a fall.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful quality- avoid at all costs !!!, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bough theses to record mixes for playing while driving to and from work. Have had used Verbatim before but no the AZO Crystal which are meant to be of the highest quality. Burned at low speed and for the first few plays of each disk all sounded great. Then I noticed the occasional jump in the track being played. Then the occasional distortion. Eventually it sounded as though the CD had been dragged across a gravel path and dunked into a large pot of jam before being played, although I couldn't see any blemishes or scratches on the disk itself. I tried around 10 different burns at differing speeds and played them dually and singularly in both my vehicles over a six week period and the result was always eventually the same: it sounds as though the recorded music is sliding off them. DO NOT BUY THESE CD'S- THEY ARE SHYTE ! Seller has declined to offer any refund due to the time period elapsed between purchase and follow up contact and has advised me to contact the manufacturer. I'm buying TDK only from hereon.

4.0 out of 5 stars another used dvd of an old childrens telly series, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Bod [DVD] (DVD)
Very reasonable quality used DVD : part of the (now seemingly obsolete) Kult-Kidz collection of long decommissioned children's TV programmes. I bought this for my own kids but only because I had fond memories of watching them when a young-un myself. Interested to see how well they have stood the test of time: despite being on dvd, they are not digitally remastered but do produce the same sense of nostalgia that you might experience from a scratchy old vinyl record;- obviously they are a delight and an oddity as well as occasionally revelatory. Although TV is restricted to an X amount down our way, our young-un's love and request these old retrospective series' as much as they do the new one's, and sometimes, surprisingly, much more often, which just goes to reinforce the old adage: they don't make em like they used to . . . . !

4.0 out of 5 stars Lts of use and so far so good, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this as a night light for my kids room, and its nice to look in and see the dimmed light gently changing colour. The dimmest setting still lets quite a lot of light, though not dazzlingly so. It occasionally goes into spasms of flash effect when first switched on, usually in one colour (red) but I'm not certain if this is because the accompanying dimmer switch has been turned down at the same time as the remote dimmer for the bulb itself. But once you switch everything off for a bit and back on again, it seems to sort itself out. I don't think you actually need an LED light switch for this bulb if its just a two way switch, but if you are changing a dimmer like for like you certainly will to avoid damaging the bulb itself: although you still use the remote to control the bulbs brightness. So far so good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works well, looks good., 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Changing a like for like dimmer switch because I had bought a new dimmable LED bulb for one of the lights it controlled. This is expensive when put beside its ordinary counterpart, and not quite the same quality as you'd get from, say, an Aurora version, but once fitted, it looks well, works well and does the job.

Bought this for use in the office. Works as well as the regular bulb did but with a cooler light and not nearly the same heat output. Its good.
