5.0 out of 5 stars Epic!, 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok, maybe not epic but 85l is huge! I replaced an old backpack that had lasted me years and for £45 (or whatever I paid), I really got a lot of kit!

The bag has two compartments that can be opened up into one. Loads of extra pockets hidden away down the sides, front and even one on the belt loop.

Lots of compression straps and bungees to keep everything snug or attach extras.

And adjustable straps so it fits whatever your body shape.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, 19 Jun 2014
Ok, I'm yet to use it but it's small, light and green. Felt nice when I "had a go" at home but the real test will come at Glastonbury next week!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 19 Jun 2014

Really nice screen, the image is lovely and the screen itself looks great. The base is a little wobbly if you knock into the screen (it is 27 inches after all) but otherwise a superb bit of kit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not everything is included, 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got these quickly and they are the same as mu original Samsung earphones but the listing says they come with three sets of earbuds (different sizes) and sadly mine came only with one set included.

I prefer the smaller fit as the normal and large are uncomfortable in my ears. Dissapointing but I think I have some spares at home.


Fractal Design Define R4 PC Case - Black/Pearl

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Superb Case, 19 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great bit of kit. Went for the Fractal over the Corsair 330r as Corsair were out of stock....I'm glad!

This is a superb case. It looks great and is full of excellent functions. The fan speed controller under the front panel is brilliant and the sound proofing very efficient.

The case is very heavy and quite long (deep) but that's useful for sound dampening and cooling. The panels come off easily and internally it's very easy to move things around.

The case has space for wires behind the Motherboard, keeping the case tidy, increasing airflow and stopping things shorting the circuits or blocking fans.

Lots of options for additional fans. I added three and they went in really easily.

All in all, very impressed

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bit of kit, 8 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The speaker looks great, it's compact and feels solid. The front is a smooth piece of glass and the base a shaped metal platform. The light at the front indicating connection is discreet and the buttons on the top for power and volume are easy to use.

Sound quality is excellent for a small and light speaker and although there isn't a lot of bass, the sound is good at all levels. I've listened to a variety of genres of music and all sound good.

Setup is a little complicated but that's mainly down to how the instructions are written. It'll take 5 minutes to setup and you're done. My WiFi range is good and as such this has become a speaker often used in the garden (on an extension lead) and in the bedroom.

There's a 3-4 second pause before music plays due to the Air Play link but to stream high quality sound I'm happy with that. I am yet to use the USB connection.

Paired with an iTunes remote app (check out the app store) this is a fantastic speaker to listen to iTunes around the house and garden.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as described but very good all the same, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived next day and nicely packaged.

Trousers look great and are made in a really nice fabric. The Puma branding is good, not too much but enough to show these are sportswear.

The trousers didn't have the waistband gripper tape or v split hems as advertised which is why I knocked off a star, otherwise they're great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cats love it, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From the second we get this out, the cats track us to the garden. They chase, jump, attack...they love it! It's the best cat toy around.

The Flying frenzy is also much better made than cheaper counterparts. The feathers and string rotate at a joint, so the string doesn't tangle around the pole. The one piece pole also stays together when our boys try to run off with the feather in their mouth!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice quality product, 4 Oct 2012

This review is from: Pheasant Feathers (Toy)
I've spent most of September buying feathers...Halloween is just around the corner after all!
These have been the pick of the bunch! Individually wrapped in a cellophane 'sheath' and delivered in a sturdy cardboard envelope they arrived safely. The feathers themselves were good quality without any obvious damage.
I can't complain....

3.0 out of 5 stars When it works, it's great, 4 Oct 2012
Nice bit of kit and solidly made however we've found it stops working and displays an "ERR" (error) message on the screen about once a fortnight.

It's also quite complicated to set the feeder again (set time, set feed times, set feed amount, set feed duration, etc) which makes the regular errors that much more frustrating.
