1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish., 19 Oct 2014
This is just a couple of pieces of stamped metal stuch together and powder coated. I expected better, maybe a die casting. This is just rubbish

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 19 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've used Steinel lamps in the past, most often the 746 and 706, so expected this to be of like quality. it's not. It's flimsy, made of light plastic, and I am unconvinced of it's watertightness. I shan't buy any more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, perhaps over-featured., 7 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm going to start by admitting a certain affection for Rotring pencils - this is my sixth, and the retractable point is a welcome improvement.

What's to like? Well, they are tough, weighty, have excellent lead feed mechanisms, and the retractable point means it can go in my bad without spiking stuff, and it's less likely to get a bent ferrule when I drop it.

The stylus isn't much good. It's never in my hand when I play with my tablet, and unless I make a special effort to get it, I don't use it. I guess if I worked in a fancy design office and wanted to impress clients it would be super.

Oh, and the eraser is too small and hard to get refills for. For a pencil with near unlimited life expectancy, this is a big let down. An integrated large capacity propelling eraser with easily available refills would be great.

5.0 out of 5 stars In this case, branded goods are worth the extra cost., 28 Sep 2014

This has a lot better range than the no brand item I bought previously. An uncertain connection has become reliable, and I am very happy.

This review is from: LED Lenser LED8252 (DIY & Tools)
There's no lens or focus control, and it uses a twist switch which is hard to operate one handed due to the torch being small.

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential part of any repairmans' toolkit., 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for disassembling failed electrical devices if the screw head becomes unserviceable. Good quality bit, bites in and either unscrews them or takes the head off so I can twist the rest out with pliars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for what they are., 1 Sep 2014

Exactly as described. I had to pre-drill them but from experience they last well without fading. A tougher metal version would be of interest due to my constant war with vandals.

Excellent shaving cream, but why discontinue Opus, and why no quercus shaving cream, both are nicer fragrances?

The sign seems to have been printed on the protective coating put on commercial aluminium plate. I don't know how long this will last.
