Duronic RFL033AAA Compact CREE LED Lantern/Flashlight/Torch
Duronic RFL033AAA Compact CREE LED Lantern/Flashlight/Torch

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good piece of kit, 28 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great piece of kit: gives a bright, even pool of light mostly horizontally from the lighthouse-like window. The lantern is very solidly made from machined aluminium and glass, and feels like quality. It'll either hang from the in-built loop, or stand on the flat base. The actuation switch cycles the lantern through 'Off-Red flashing light-White steady light'. Very good value.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bright but flimsy build, 26 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The general design is good and the lantern is easily used either hanging from a loop or line using the spring clip, or standing upside down on a flat surface. The small red switch is easy to use. Pressing it cycles through three levels of brightness as successive banks of LEDs are lit. Light output is pretty good, and the translucent 'lampshade' works well at diffusing and softening the light. Faults are that one of the 60 LEDs is dead from brand new out of the box (doesn't massively affect light output to be fair, but it's an irritation for a new product); and the general construction is thin, flimsy plastic that doesn't feel at all robust and lets the product down, especially for the price - half the money can buy a really solid, well-made Cree aluminium lantern.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good sound, easy & fun to use, 26 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The speaker has a good solid feel to it, and this is complemented by the warm, bassy tone, which is noticeably more satisfying than I get from a similar mini speaker from a different brand. Volume is excellent and is surprising for the size. A good purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great screen, phenomenal post-sales customer/technical support (formerly:Good screen, but needs improvement), 21 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Original comments: The frame is basically good and easy to use. Ample storage on the included nano-USB storage stick. Nice colour resolution. Allows some choice over display: 4-at-a-time, single photo, some variation of transition effects and timings. Limited though. Resolution is fine from a distance but grainy up close, but this does mean that you can get away with low-res versions of the photos, allowing more photos to be stored. Only 3 stars because of the grainy resolution close up, and also because the random photo display function is badly programmed, so that it often displays the same photo twice or more in rapid succession, or even simultaneously if showing 4-to-a-page. There is no way of updating the firmware either.
Update 27 Aug. 2015: Nix customer services responded very fast to my previously 3* review with comments as above. After a brief email exchange that was very supportive, giving some technical advice on how to boost performance and providing some test photos, they then took the initiative to phone me (from USA to UK!) a couple of days later to check whether I needed further support. They said, both in email and on the phone, "You have invested your money in our product and we are here to help you", and gave some further technical tips to boost performance (e.g. adjust the photo resolution to match as closely as possible that of the frame 800x600 pixels, 83dpi) and promised to look into whether I could benefit from a firmware update. This is nothing less than outstanding customer service & support, way beyond any other company I've ever dealt with. Oh, and the improvements from following their advice are very helpful. I'm dead impressed!

It's memory. Bit of a tight squeeze to fit: slots and dimensions not quite precise, but I made it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good cables, 21 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Robust, hard-wearing, make good contact. Apart from that, they're USB cables. I'd prefer slightly longer for in-car use (1.25m or 1.5m) but they reach, just about. Much better than cheapo cables which quickly develop loose contact with the device, or which see the cable sheath part company from the plug sheath.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great charger: excellent performance, great value., 21 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great charger, looks good and low profile. Charges phone without any problem; even when I'm using power-intensive navigation. Electrical contacts within the car socket occasionally drop contact (probably because the car power socket is slightly corroded) and could be better designed to maximise positive engagement. Otherwise robust and well designed and made. Would also be nice if it had a LED to indicate power and charging cycle stage, hence 4 stars instead of 5. But these are very minor quibbles. It's far and away the best in-car charger I've ever had, well worth the modest cost, and I'd buy it again without hesitation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic beam, unreliable button, 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great, powerful and impressive beam, especially outdoors at night. But the button started to play up quite quickly, dramatically reducing the power of the beam. I have to press the button really hard now to get a full-power beam, otherwise it's flickery and much dimmer.
