LUXURY Ultra-thin Aluminum Metal Bumper Case Cover For LG Google Nexus 5 (Black)
LUXURY Ultra-thin Aluminum Metal Bumper Case Cover For LG Google Nexus 5 (Black)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Impressed., 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When installing this bumper cover I noticed the fit isn't perfect, it feels ever so slightly loose on the phone.

Also, the catch that holds the case together isn't very secure and has a tendency to release itself. I notice some similar items have a screw, which would be much better.

Finally, the inner edges of the case seem like they could scratch the phone's matte rubber casing. It should really have a thin rubber lining to prevent damage and this would also remedy the first problem I mentioned.

As such I have removed it and went back to my Caseology Carbon cover.

At least this one wasn't expensive!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great product spoiled by shoddy software, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The mouse is very well built, and comes in a nice perspex box... but unfortunately this is where the praise ends.

The first major annoyance is that it requires you to create an online profile to use it. Razer say this is to keep the software updated and your settings backed up, but in reality it's all very pointless as this could be done without the need to register an account and for the software to be always online. You can force it offline, but you shouldn't even have to do any of this in the first place.

Now onto the mouse itself... when the PC boots up it takes ages to remember my settings (DPI, light colour & brightness etc) and would always default to 6400DPI, which is far too fast for desktop use. It would also occasionally simply stop working when in use and then fail to wake up from its sleep. Razer suggested giving the legacy drivers a try, but this didn't solve any of the issues. It's a real shame as it's really comfy, great when working and looks awesome... but for £100 it should work 100% of the time with zero fuss.

I have since sent it back and replaced it with a Logitech G602, which is awesome and works exactly like it should.

Very impressed with this screen protector, especially for the money.

Application was very easy, fit is perfect and once on it is barely noticeable.

It also doesn't have the oil-like effect that some of the cheaper screen protectors suffer from.

Would definitely recommend!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Downhill Supreme 2 (App)
Like others have mentioned, there are one or two bugs such as the game crashing when changing certain parts, but otherwise it runs perfectly on my Nexus 5 and Note 2. Courses are challenging without being impossible and the controls are easy to use too. I especially like the fact it doesn't have In-App purchases, aka Pay To Win.

In addition to the minor bug fixes I would love to see some slopestyle / freeride courses with the ability to do tricks and stuff. I know it's a downhill game, but I think that would appeal to a lot of people. Maybe even approach Red Bull about a "Rampage Edition".

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, 13 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Avantree Saturn BTTC200X arrived in the post yesterday and here are my initial thoughts after using it for a day:

* Product is well presented and feels very well made.
* Rubberised base is a nice touch and stops it sliding around.
* Very easy to connect and pair - simply press the power button until the light flashes and then do the same on the headphones (I'm using Sennheiser PX210 BTs)
* Sound quality is equally as good as using wired headphones, due to APT-X codec.
* Range is not quite as far as advertised. Up to around 5-6m is perfect but beyond that sound does drop. However, it should be noted I'm testing in the office so there may be interference from PCs, metal filing cabinets etc. A non issue for me though, as I'm desk bound most of the day.
* Following on from the above point, at my usual listening range I have yet to experience any sound drop outs or hear any strange noises, something which I occasionally get when using my Galaxy Note 2 for BT audio.
* Great that it can be charged and used at the same time.

I have yet to test receive mode but overall I am very happy with my purchase and would definitively recommend it to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the money., 12 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great product. Feels well made considering it’s plastic. Comes with foam padding to stop HDD moving around, although the HDD feels very secure anyway. Only took a few seconds to fit drive and totally tool free. Transfer speeds are nice and fast over USB 3.0 and no issues with it disconnecting itself. Others have reported a flimsy USB port however the connection seems solid on mine. Nothing a bit of Blu-Tack wouldn’t fix if it does come loose. Hopefully it will last longer than my WD Passport did, what a mistake that was!

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap shouldn't mean Rubbish, 25 Aug. 2009
I bought these as a cheap replacement for some Sennheiser CX300s which I accidentally stood on.

They arrived in a nice box with a cool case, however it didn't take long before disappointment set in. First off, I found supplied rubber tips quite uncomfortable so had to use some from an old set of Skullcandy headphones.

Sound quality... whilst it is a lot better than the likes of stock iPod headphones, or those that come free with mobile phones, it is nowhere near as good as my trusty old CX300s which now retail for only a few pounds more. I would say the UEs are like a less bassy version of Skullcandy Smokin' Buds.

Build quality is also poor. They have the annoying straight jack (thanks Apple) but it doesn't seem to have been built with longevity in mind as there is hardly any rubber there. As a result they soon develop a kink from being plugged in whilst in your pocket, and now after only a few months use they have started to pop and crackle when the cable moves. As such I have had to wrap a rubber band round the jack to stop it moving. They would definitely benefit from an L-shaped jack as they are usually a lot more robust.

My advice, spend a few extra quid and get something else. You have been warned!
