5.0 out of 5 stars Best stylus by far, 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yep, these are very good. I've been using the rubber tipped ones for some time now and whilst they're OK, they do seem to have issues with certain things like putting the pattern in on the front screen. They seem especially patchy when the screen has a protector on it. However, the fibre ones seem to have a better contact to the screen surface, plus the useful attachments mean you can connect them to the headphone socket so the stylus is always with the tablet. I would not hesitate to buy these again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required device for Z2 tablet, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the Z2 tablet says it's waterproof I reckon the constant opening of the small and fiddly latches would soon render this waterproof capability a but suspect. The answer? A magnetic charging dock. Not only does it charge the Z2 inj trhe same amount of time, placed by the computer it also looks rather good and allows the tablet to be used whilst being charged. It's not as portable as a normal plug/mini-USB lead but you could carry it around in a laptop bag if required. All I know is it works and is saving me the hassle of fiddling with the Z2 latches which are the only real downside to that tablet.

Bought these for Xperia Z2 tablet. Easy to put on and the second one was so well put on I think it'll be in place months. Perfect for the Z2 tablet.

5.0 out of 5 stars What to say..., 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a flash card. Went into my Xperia Z2 tablet and did exactly what it says on the tin. A good price for such a high capacity card and Kingston are without doubt a name I trust.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good value and well built, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm an early adopter of the Sony Xperia Z2 tablet, and needed case from the outset. There aren't many around yet so chose this one. It's good value for money, well built, doesn't feel cheap and is easy to use. I'd buy another for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant stuff, 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
truly brilliant stuff this, I've used it to repair so many little things like a fridge draw, door handles (to remove the sharp edge), and even repair some blinds by using Sugru to repair the chain links eaten by the kittens. I now have a supply of black and white Sugru and think this stuff is a must for any home.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best screenies I've had for the iPhone5, 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been few a through different sellers for these items from receiving my lovely iPhone 5 (an original not a C or S!). This product not only arrived very quickly, but the protectors themselves do seem to be the best I've used and far less susceptible to issues when applying. I would definitely buy these again as they are a good product and were very good value for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant film, great value copy, 28 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Two films for the price, one the original cinema release and the Director's Cut. I watched the Director's Cut on receiving this, and to be honest I couldn't see the difference. But irrespective of this, and despite the slightly dated visual effects, in the main this film is stand out cult viewing. No sequels were necessary, but business is business. Verhoeven broke the mould here though. The satire on US society then and now is brilliant, if not a little spooky in it's foretelling of how corruption rules in the world of big corporations. One can only believe this is how things would be if a major software company were in charge of policing!

But it's the little touches such as the interruptions to the news of out of place adverts, and the return to white toothed, tanned presenters smiling as they discuss more street murders and violence. The film works on many levels, obvious hero's but troubled, corrupt power hungry old white men, and a glorious villain in Clarence Bodicker. But if you don't like gore then don't watch. Verhoeven doesn't spare the viewer from any of the grisly scenes of mutilation and death.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant series that improved on second viewing., 28 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great box set to complete the Life on Mars collection. I bought this after a bout of illness left me settee bound for a week and I discovered Netflix. However,i prefer the 'ownership' model for those things I consider to be true classics. And this is one of them. The acting is superb despite the Keeley Hawes naysayers. In fact she's as good in this as she is in the recent Line of Duty series. I think she suffered from the problem of following the excellent John Simm and the criticism she took (for which Glenister defended her) was unjust and generally the mewling noises of people who's knives were already sharpened. The first series very much follows the pattern from Life on Mars, as Alex Drake takes a bullet and finds herself in 1981. What follows is denial, acceptance, angst and all the usual theories of getting back to the current time. The denouement of the first series really is gripping and very moving as Alex does everything she can to prevent her parents death without knowing the truth behind the events until pretty much the last minute. Series 2 touches on police corruption as a story arc, and brings into play the superb Adrian Dunbar as the anti-hero to gene Hunt's straight down the middle results based policing. A cliff hanging ending leaves the viewer completely confused as to what time period Alex is actually in. Series 3 is the darkest by far. Alex questions Gene's motives more, and is pulled into the circle of the nasty Jim Keats (superbly acted by Daniel Mays) from Discipline & Complaints. I actually started to dislike Gene Hunts through this series. He seemed angry and more prone to abusing and bullying people, but the strength of Phil Glenisters' performance is by realizing Gene knows what Keats is up to and who/what he represents, and therefore sees the threat but can't cope with it. It becomes about Gene's immaturity from his own previous life events and his own journey to remembrance. The ending of this series makes everything clear, including what happened to Sam and Annie. I defy you to watch this without the eye's moistening. I actually think another series Could have been made, bringing someone from the very current social media, always connected world, but maybe like all the best things it was wisest to stop it at it's peak. All in, a fantastic series, strengthening what Life on Mars innovated, and including stellar performances from all involved and some fantastically apt music. One to watch and warm the cockles on cold winter evenings, or warm summer nights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top sander with typical Bosch quality, 28 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great price for a great all purpose sander. I trust the Bosch name and even though my old Bosch sander disintegrated, it was over 10 years old and had taken some hefty usage at times! I was unsure about the lack of a handle but after a few minutes the 'palm' grip feels like second nature, and in fact may be a more natural way, emulating our hand movements more realistically. The price on amazon was as ever, the best around, and combined with 25 sheets option, a top piece of value that i expect to last for many years.
