1.0 out of 5 stars Meh. Poor durability and fit., 22 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fit not great (sleeves ride up into your armpits) and developed holes after only a couple of wears. Wouldn't recommend or buy again. You're better off with the Next 2-for-a-tenner v-neck T's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright, and easy on the batteries, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A "just works" product, really nicely put together and really bright (probably 50w equiv guestimated) but without the pain of wiring. I've got this installed in a garage where there's no power available. Open the door, the sensor picks the movement up straight away and good illumination with wide beam spread. Doesn't turn off if you're static for a bit, so no need to wave your arms like a lunatic to get it back on again, and light goes off about 20 seconds after you leave the area so doesn't kill the batteries. So far, must've been in for nearly 3 months on and still on the first set of batteries. Another really good Mr Beams product - I have a few now and have been impressed by them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and bright, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good light output, easily 60w equivalent although I feel it's probably brighter. I like the light temperature it puts out, especially in the winter months. Only been in a couple of months now, so can't really comment on longevity really as I got easily the same out of a normal filament bulb in the location I'm using it in. 5 stars if it holds up to the time test.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing durability, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great when they work, but fail rate is high. About 2 months in of light (aha!) use, and one has failed already. Light output is good, but my expectation is that an LED light should well outlast the old school filament equivalents. These won't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Minimal bulk, maximum function, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One week in, and it's a really nice looking and feeling case that fits my iPhone 6 snugly. I really like the approach with the stand, that ensures it works really well, but adds no extra bulk - this is the only case I've seen that does that. In hand, it feels like a quality product.

The clip works well, but is a pain to use one handed - addition of a little nub on the outer edge or something would be nice - and I'm sceptical how long it'll last for before it gets loose or snaps, but so far so good. Think I'd have preferred a magnet option though. Camera hole is well cut, and I've not seen any flash interference (you wouldn't believe how many expensive cases I've tried that do!!). The front cover is slightly wider than the back, so if you use a gripper type car mount it interferes a bit - I think this could be solved by shaving about 1 mm all the way around without any loss of protection or retraction from the design. Not enough to drop a star from a really good product though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat, and sharp, 4 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stores well, and safely. Knife is really sharp and carves a Christmas turkey and gammon well (Japanese steel). Feels solidly constructed. Only criticism is lack of cross guard on the fork, but not enough to lose a top rating.

2.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy and car gets stuck., 4 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Go Mini HQ Playset (Toy)
Flimsy, and poor. Not suitable for 3+ as suggested (Not durable enough). Car gets stuck in the launcher, door regularly falls off (even being careful). Returned. Only gets 2 stars as my son loved the car and the box opening experience on Christmas morning.

I'm really enjoying this. Great TV adaptation, and nice pacing of the series so far.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking and functional (eventually), but poorly engineered thread, 14 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My top tip - use way more PTFE tape than you think you'll need!

Nice looking and functional (eventually), but very poorly engineered thread. Bought to fit a new metric radiator into an imperial spaced central heating system without needing to re-do the pipes. First fitting, I used a normal amount of PTFE tape (normal that I'd use for a new radiator), filled the radiator a little and there was a good steady stream of drips. Second fitting, I used a good chunk of PTFE tape - the kind of amount one feels is overkill - radiator lasted an hour before slow occasional drips started to appear (both ends of the extension). Third fitting I was getting fed up and used the rest of a new role of PTFE tape and some of a new role, a week later and that seems to have done the trick (this was to fit two extensions, once each side of the radiator).

4.0 out of 5 stars Rock solid for skirting., 14 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used for attaching fully finished skirting boards and architrave. A week on, and it seems to have done the trick - has stuck them on rock solid on uneven walls. Top tip - wipe off any you don't want when it's still wet, you'll not shift it once it's dried. And have lots of heavy stuff nearby to hold it to the wall while it goes off, it'll take a few of hours to get fully gripped.
