5.0 out of 5 stars Nice running Shoe, 9 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are a very nice running show - take an 8 and went up to an 8.5 which are a perfect fit.

Have suffered from Plantar Fasciitis in the past and so far after three weeks not had a single problem.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless LED Light, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Failed after 2 Weeks, did give a good light while working, just did not last.

Wanted to upgrade other Mini GU10 bulbs that had started to fail, was hopeful to begin with but not up to the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Ultrabook, 10 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been using this Ultrabook for just over 24 hours and I think that I have at last found the ultimate portable computer.

It looks incredible and is at last a Windows PC that can be placed next to the MacBook range of computers and not be found wanting on looks or performance, the Acer Logo on the back of the screen also lights up which is a nice touch.

It is extremely light and can be picked up with one hand with no problem, it is also extremely fast to start-up and shutdown, either from sleep mode or from a full boot, in fact it is up and running as soon as you open the screen.

The display is excellent and the touch screen works very well, the keyboard takes a bit of getting used to as the keys are quite flat, but seems fine to me after a bit of use, the backlighting on the keyboard is also very good, the track pad is a bit tricky to begin with but after a bit of fine tuning seems to be working fine now.

Comes with micro HDMI port (VGA to HDMI adapter included), a headphone socket and external battery connector socket, also has two USB 3 ports (USB to Ethernet adapter included), and an SD card reader, also a Bluetooth mouse and carry case are included.

No problems with Wi-Fi connection which is giving me full strength when connected to my router.

Battery life seems to be OK, around 4 - 5 hours on a single charge, maybe the only thing that lets it down a little.

Still getting used to Windows 8 and keep finding new ways of working with this O/S, seems to be many new shortcuts and screens, running Office 2013 on it and it all integrates together very well.

Yes this is an expensive Ultrabook, but I think it is well worth it, I just love it, and I think it will be a quite a while before it is replaced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoying all the recipes, 5 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have been using this book to create almost all our meals for 5 weeks now.

The recipes are very simple to follow and have all tasted really good.

I have lost 1 Stone so far and my wife has lost 8 pounds so we are both very happy with this.

Not just down to the recipes in the book as you have to exercise as well, I go mountain biking and my wife goes to a gym.

So for now we are going to continue to use the recipes in the book - give it a try as it does help to loose weight.

***Update 1 after nine weeks ***

Have now lost 2 Stone and the wife 1 Stone - still using the book for most meals.

***Update 2 after seventeen weeks ***

Have now lost over 3 Stone and the wife 1 Stone 4 pounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for HDMI & Sound Conversion, 3 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Using this to convert convert VGA to HDMI and Sound with a 37" LG TV.

Came with a UK Plug, you will need a HDMI Cable to connect to the TV and a VGA Cable to connect to your PC.

Picture quality is very good for a device at this price point.

Been using it for a few days now with no problems.

1.0 out of 5 stars Looks good but a lot of work to put together., 26 Mar 2012
Just put one of these together, no instructions supplied, several of the lugs which fit onto the mainlegs were bent out of shape and had to be bent back, the lugs were also too tight on just about every part and had to be opened with a screwdriver and then hammered on otherwise they would not connect together.

Would have been quicker with a tradtional unit with bolts and nuts.

Finished product looks good but too much like hard work due to poor finishing of parts, I will not be buying another.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3w Mini GU10 LED, 30 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased five of these bulbs to replce the mini GU10 halogen bulbs go in a kitchen ceiling light.

Gives a much softer light than the old halogen bulbs, and use very little electricity.

Update after 1 Year - Bulbs have now started to fail - 3 Gone within the same week so not as good as was hoped.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased three of these bulbs to go in a lamp where the halogen bulbs were always failing.

Gives a much nicer light than the old halgen bulbs, and use very little electricity, cannot detect their usage on the wireless energy metre.

Excellent product and will use in the future.
