I haven't soak-tested this but it looks effective, the material and seals seem up to the job. Only problem is sizing. I bought this for a 17 inch laptop (Lenovo Y70), but really it's a comfortable fit for a 15 inch one with a bit spare. I gives me confidence to carry the laptop in any shoulder bag or rucksac whatever the weather.

1.0 out of 5 stars not good enough, 22 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks good. Good name. Poor quality - i.e. it just isn't square enough even for woodworking. The smaller version is acceptable, but this isn't. Maybe just my bad luck, but a lot of "big name" manufacturers simply don't apply quality control to their (Chinese) contractors.

Surprisingly poor quality. They look like they should be equal to the traditional draughtsman's quality of template, but the edges are quite uneven.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wildly overpriced, 10 April 2014
The going rate for the MSA200 is £33. It is unbelievable that a pocket screwdriver added in would justify more than doubling the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars good but.., 17 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very useful, but concerns about quality control - there are 4 6mm screws holding the top on the tripod. On the two stands I have just bought, in both cases one of the 4 screws is, bizarrely, a twin thread screw, so doesn't fit (except with the usual brute force and ignorance). Difficult to imagine how it could happen in one case, but for both stands it beggars belief. Some concern about the flimsy nature of the adjusting screws, as mentioned by another reviewer.

1.0 out of 5 stars beware, 1 Feb. 2014
This is apparently the updated version of the CMT-MX550i. I bought one to replace another Sony micro hi-fi that stopped reading CDs after a couple of years. The new one stopped working properly after a little more than a year - initially skipping and now failing to play at all - occasionally showing the total track length and track count, but usually just displaying "no disc". Has Sony lost the ability to make CD players that work consistently? My Sony Discman from the 90s still works, so they used to know how. If you're happy with something that may just last the warranty period then this may be fine, or if you don't need to play CDs then also this will work.


Michelin Double Barrel Foot Pump
Michelin Double Barrel Foot Pump
Price: £18.95

1.0 out of 5 stars shameful quality, 6 July 2012
Bought one to replace a Halfords thing that lasted a few months. The Michelin lasted one usage. On second use the dial fell off, although it did still inflate the tyre. The replacement didn't even last one use. It struggled to inflate to 30psi and then just squeaked. Michelin should be ashamed, hopefully their tyres are built to a better standard. Why can't we give zero stars in a review?

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 2 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London Under (Hardcover)
I agree with the reviewers who have pointed out the thinness of the book and its appearance of being thrown together. An editor was definitely necessary, not just for the typos though. On page 18 we have ".. Roman ship ... sunk by a stone cannonball at the end of the third century." Not a cannonball, however spherical it may be. This is a book the author may regret producing, it diminishes his reputation.

...where was "How To Be Dead"? Was it not as good as I thought? Or not as big a hit? Or do the chaps dislike it for some reason?
