Kattee Mens Brown Leather Laptop Messenger Briefcase Crossover Shoulder Bag
Kattee Mens Brown Leather Laptop Messenger Briefcase Crossover Shoulder Bag
Offered by Donner-UK
Price: £89.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish Bag in Leather, 28 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my son. First impressions are very positive. Beginning with price : excellent (assuming longer term durability). The quality of the article is also excellent. It seems well made, and should be durable. Stitching seems strong. Leather has the aged look that is fashionable.
Of course, only with time can one give a full and detailed assessment of the article.
I did not buy it to serve as a laptop bag, rather as a general briefcase for documents etc.. Perhaps one would need additional, padded, protection for a laptop. It is much narrower than the older traditional briefcase, but has the same dimensions as the majority of modern courier / messenger / general document / laptop bags.
Overall, for looks, usability and initial impression of durability, I would give the product the best rating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Check Length, 15 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Colour fine, quality of leather fine, but length is a problem. I have a quite narrow wrist, but it only just fits, and this on a watch with a large face. Don't know if it is available in different lengths, but worth checking what you need.

A very good price for a quality product. Added as second LNB to existing dish, works fine. Put a bit of silicon grease on the wire and under the rain-guard boot before wrapping with self amalgamating tape to ensure it is completely waterproof.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent satellite box, 30 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace a TM 5200D that stopped working. It had lasted 6 years, which is less than its predecessor (10 years; and a different brand). Whether this one will last, we'll see. The demise of the 5200D might have something to do with ambient temperature. It sat between a cold draft from outside and a hot open fire. The instruction manual mentions that you should not locate it where "the temperature is too high or too low". So, in the goldilocks zone, but where is that. I did read in other reviews that the 5402 has a fan, but I cannot hear it. Anyway, time will tell. If this one goes quickly I'll look for a different brand - which would be a pity since in all other respects this box is really great and is the reason why I award it five stars. It was time for a new box any way, since HD is becoming more common.
Having used the 5200 previously, the set up for this was easy, but setting up the old one with no previous experience of Technomate models or of any other box since the engineer did it for my first one was straightforward. You just select the satellite (I only use one - 19.2 e - for German programmes) and press the red button for scan. This produces a list of several hundred channels, most of which you can go through and delete. You can then arrange the remaining ones in the sequence you want, so you know what button to press without looking it up.
This is an HD receiver, but the number of HD channels that are non subscription is limited. NOTE: If you want to be able to receive the German HD+ channels that are subscription (look at the German HD+ website if you want to see which they are)then you need a CI+ slot on the satellite box (as well as a subscription card). I am not sure that this box has a CI+ slot. Earlier models did. This just has CI on the front. I don't think the Super+ refers to the CI. I would get in touch with Technomate to clarify this point.
If you want to check what you can get free to air, look at:

Quality of pictures is impressive. I find sound a bit low, even at highest setting on remote controller. Use the HDMI setting on your TV to increase audio offset.
The box is referred to as PVR ready. For this you have to buy an external drive to link to the box via USB. If you don't want to buy an external drive, the alternative is to link this box to a VCR using a SCART lead. The box has 1 SCART output as well as USB and HDMI.
It also has a LAN input, should you wish to link it up. Might get round to it one day.
The box comes with an HDMI lead and an IR lead. The latter means you can stick the box in a cupboard and use the IR lead to send remote controller signal to the box. I have not tried it, but have read mixed reviews of such things.
All in all an excellent receiver. Easy to set up and easy to use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Check Colour and exact size, 2 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought two of these shirts, one navy blue and one black in size Xl 17.5 inch collar.
The quality is fine and the price is excellent.
Some short points to watch for:
The navy blue shirt is much darker than the photograph suggests. It is very close to black. The difference is clear when placed next to a black shirt. but is not blue as the picture shows (at least on my machine). Not a real problem but worth noting.
The sizing guide shows XL is 17.5. The shirt shows 17 - 17.5. I would suggest it is closer to 17 as it is slightly tight. Chart does not give chest size. I would say it is 27.5 inches armpit to armpit. It is plenty big enough for me, but then I just need a max 43 inch chest. It is the collar size I usually have problems with because of large neck muscles.
All in all, very pleased with this a an everyday shirt

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It does what it is supposed to.
I will only give it 4 stars because I don't know how long it will last. The charger that came with the machine lasted just over two years before the cable broke just before the reinforced bit at the machine end. Mind you, the Dell charger lasted a year longer than the screen and the internal drive of the machine.

Bought this to stick a new hard disk in that I had left over from a machine that gave up ghost while still quite young. It is very easy to set up and to connect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good price, 14 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace an exactly similar item that did not survive being washed with my son's trousers. It was an excellently priced item - compared with later versions.
