5.0 out of 5 stars Gets attention, 11 Dec 2010
This review is from: Acid Smiley Faces Tie (Apparel)
Out and about in town, I keep getting smiles and nice comments about this tie.

Folks love it.

Reason enough to wear it I would say.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real item, 11 Dec 2010
It came in the correct packaging, it is a varta original and not a cheap fake that lasts a week.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool, 11 Dec 2010
This tie is really cool, pay attention to the photos so you understand just what the skeletons are up to before you buy it.

It's not blatant, I can wear it at work and folks who pass me in the corridor don't notice but close up, it usually raises a laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job just fine, 11 Dec 2010
You cannot really say a lot about the quality of this product as a signal carrier - as a single link cable, it carries only digital signals so it either works or does not. Well, it works.

What I can say is this: I use it in an environment with a lot of other equipment including analog video and audio components. They can be affected by interference from poorly shielded cables. No such problems with this cable. It is well enough shielded that it has no effect on other kit in the room.

I cannot comment on durability as it is just left in place and never disturbed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 11 Dec 2010
I bought a whole bunch of these puppies for a small computer lab. They do the job and despite being plugged in and out quite frequently, they never work loose and they don't fray or crack. No complaints at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gets you noticed, 11 Dec 2010
This tie is most certainly bright and colourful. It gets you noticed. If I wear it when I am out an about, I get comments from complete strangers.

The gay pride aspect will pass most folks by so don't let that put you off if you are straight - I am straight, it does not worry me and it has never caused any awkward moments.

The only small negative is that the cloth is very shiny and slippery which means that you may find yourself having to tie a tighter, smaller knot than you would like in order to keep it stable. It's a minor point though.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's OK, 10 Dec 2010
You can't say much about a mains lead but it is well made and has not fallen apart or frayed despite being plugged in and out on a daily basis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 10 Dec 2010
This stool is certainly worth the money.

It is stable and comfortable enough for normal use. I use it at home only.

I'd say that it is good for gigging drummers who have to carry their own kit around though I am not sure how long it would last with heavy use.

1.0 out of 5 stars Junk, 10 Dec 2010
The battery in the headset would not charge.

I left it on the charger overnight but still, it would not charge so it could not be used at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Broken Flash, 11 Mar 2009
This review is from: Kodak - EasyShare Z8612 IS
When it works, it's great but after six months, the flash died.

That should just not happen on a modern camera.

Apart from that, I can only find two faults. At longer zooms, there is a lot of chromatic aberration - objects have a purple fringe and the overall shade of whites tends to purple too at those zooms. Also, while the camera will accept normal AA cells, unless you use Lithium or better Lithium Ion rechargeable cells, you will be very unhappy with battery life.
