Ring Automotive RIL4000 Ultra Bright Magnetic Flexible Led Inspection Lamp
Ring Automotive RIL4000 Ultra Bright Magnetic Flexible Led Inspection Lamp
Offered by ASC
Price: £36.75

5.0 out of 5 stars Blinding!, 12 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not particularly cheap, but well worth the money.
I've previously owned a battery operated LED lamp which went through batteries at an alarming rate. This one keeps its charge for ages.
In addition the lamps are extremely powerful with the "torch" one on the top operated on the first click and the inspection light on the side operated on the second click. The torch isn't too much of a concentrated beam as with some LED torches and the inspection light floods the area - it lights up my whole garage.
There are two useful hanging hooks on the back, one slightly bigger than the other, along with two quite strong magnets. There's also a very strong magnet on the base, which itself swivels both ways through 90 degrees.
All in all a very useful lamp that I'd recommend to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Static!, 12 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased for a Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 which it fits quite well, although there's less than 1mm of space around the perimeter so you have to get it lined up spot on otherwise it overlaps the edge of the tablet and will not stick down.
I've fitted a number of these plastic screen protectors over the years and I have to say this was without doubt the most static one I have come across. The static made fitting it quite a challenge because as soon as it was anywhere near the tablet it pulled itself towards it, making careful alignment almost impossible. Dust also becomes more of a problem.
Because of the tight fit I did have to lift and reposition it a few times but I got there in the end and the result is OK, with only a few tiny blemishes, but it did take a while.
At only a pound per sheet plus postage it's very good value and the finish is pretty good, but I'd be tempted by a tempered glass protector next time, if and when they become available.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK out of direct sunlight, 21 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to fix cables in place in a car. The one that was fixed in direct sunlight came adrift as the adhesive gave up in the heat. I have re attached it with 3M double sided tape. The others in the shade have held out OK so far.
A neat solution to running cables, but be careful where you place them as the adhesive is not too reliable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing case at an amazing price!, 21 Oct 2014
Ordered this case to protect my new phone as I wanted something immediately and there aren't too many of these types of cases available yet. To be honest I wasn't expecting much for the price (£6) but I'm so impressed that I'll probably keep it long term.

It's a thin case so doesn't add much bulk to the size of the Note 4 and is made of quite firm plastic with a soft feel which doesn't flex much. Consequently they have left small gaps around the edge at each corner to allow some flex so that you can clip it over your phone. It's a tight fit with a reassuring "snap" noise as it fits into place.

The profile of the case is raised enough to protect the screen if it's placed face down and also the camera if it's up the other way. The cut outs for the buttons, pen, camera etc. are smooth and well designed, especially for the power and volume buttons and the camera, so that they compliment the shape of the phone.

I've had cases like this before for previous phones at around the same price, but this is streets ahead in terms of quality and design. It even comes with a screen protector. Whether it lasts is another matter, but so far so good.


One For All URC 7960 Smart Control Universal remote
One For All URC 7960 Smart Control Universal remote

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value but will not do TV and Projector together, 16 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This remote is good value for money but beware if you're trying to replace a TV remote and a projector remote as it wont do both, it will only do one or the other.
I bought it to replace a Panasonic TV remote and a Panasonic projector remote (as well as an amp, satellite box and DVD player). What I found was that the One For All will only program your devices under six headings, so if two of your devices (in my case TV and projector) are categorised under one heading then you will have to pick either one or the other.
I plumped for the TV and it works well for that together with the amp, satellite and DVD and I only need two remotes now instead of five.
It's just a shame that their advertising isn't more explicit.

Sky Magic Eye in Black ideal for LCD and Flatscreen TV
Offered by NowView
Price: £3.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well from any angle, 14 Oct 2014
This magic eye was purchased to replace a dome version which was playing up. This one works very well from any angle and is smaller than my previous one. It even worked facing the wrong way while hanging down from the back of the tv before I had attached it.

One thing to note is that despite the description (and the picture) saying it has an F type connection the one that I was sent has two coax connections, so I didn't need the converter that I purchased at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 4 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased one of these for my Son and was so impressed that I've now purchased two more for our other cars.

I've had Arkon phone holders before and the windscreen suction mounts are very secure, gripping the glass much better and for longer than any other make that I've tried.

The phone holder itself has a spring loaded base which extends to grip the phone. The arms at either end of the holder come in both short and long sizes (the length of the plastic piece from the holder to the perpendicular arm that extends out to hold the phone) so that you can interchange to suit the length of your phone. It easily holds my son's iPhone which is 124mm long and I use the long arm attachments for my Samsung Note (which is 149mm long) and it copes easily with this. The arms just slide in from either side which means you can set them according to the position of your charger or earphone sockets.

A quality product at a sensible price. Recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only lasted a few months., 23 July 2014

Seemed OK when delivered. However only used it for 4 months and the the outer coating is rubbing off revealing white plastic underneath. It's going in the bin. There are exceptions, but you generally get what you pay for.

1.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, 23 Mar 2014

Cheaply made with soft plastic at the hinges. One arm fell off within one day of use.

Save your money for something that'll last.
