Price: £11.00

1.0 out of 5 stars The leather in this bag smelt awful., 30 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looked very nice on the website and in the plastic bag it came in, and felt very soft leather and looked decently made, but the bag smelt so awful that I just put it straight in the bin. Not worth the hassle of sending back for what it cost.
Don't know if it's the tanning process or just the leather itself, but I had another cheap leather item from ebay (leather Kindle cover) that had the same disgusting smell and just got thrown away, so I should have known.

I'm wondering if all the people who gave this good reviews have no sense of smell.
It's not a normal leathery smell, but a nasty fusty chemical smell.

In future I'll only buy leather items from real shops where I can examine them first.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good looking clock, 25 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not the cheapest, and probably overpriced for what it is, but it's a nice looking wall clock and looks attractive and well made.
Got it to put on the wall in my conservatory, where it does the job well. Keeps time and is easy to read, as well as looking good.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent case for the Asus Transformer, 25 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a case for my Asus Transformer TF101 (no keyboard dock) just for when I take it out of the house.
I can never see the point of using a tablet inside a case all the time, as it adds to the bulk and makes the thing less attractive and harder to handle.
This seems to be real leather and is compact and sturdy enough to provide protection while carrying the TF101 about.

My idea was that it should be just like carrying a small leather portfolio, which it is.
I like the secure elastic fastening, though why makers insist on putting these daft attachments on the case so you can fold it up and use it as a "stand" to watch movies is beyond me.
The TF101 is light enough to hold, and the stand bit just spoils the look of the case.

That apart, it does the job, is light and compact and good looking, and a decent quality case for the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent silencer for a PC, 25 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've just installed my desktop PC case in a cupboard in my desk and, predictably, was suffering a lot of noise as the three hard disk drives set up a resonance in the enclosed area.

This mat just stopped that dead.

The mat was a couple of inches too long for the space, but easily trimmed to size with a Stanley knife, and I used the spare to make four small footpads for the case feet, which I put on top of the mat, giving a double layer of mat under the feet.

It's gone from very loud vibration/resonance noise to silence, as quickly as that.

My PC case is already lined with sound-deadening sheets, which as far as I can tell have never made it quieter, so I wouldn't bother with those.
But if your PC is noisy, I'd suggest putting it on one of these mats as the first thing you try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm and light for winter running, 13 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When tights aren't quite warm enough but you don't want the bulk of tracksuit bottoms, these lightweight tracksters are the perfect answer.
Warm and close fitting, ideal for running on cold days. I love them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast cheap card - excellent value, 13 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This card is rated at class 6 (6MB/sec write speed), but testing with H2Testw (free program - google it) reports a write speed of 7.4 MB/sec, so easily exceeds spec.
Takes just over half an hour to fill it though, so be aware.
Was £11.99 when I bought it, and if you don't want to pay the higher price that a class 10 card incurs, it seems the ideal trade-off for affordability and speed.


Krusell Vinga Smooth Black Leather Pouch Case Medium
Krusell Vinga Smooth Black Leather Pouch Case Medium

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little protective case, 10 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just large enough for the Orange San Francisco/ZTE Blade to slip tightly into, and a handy little tab to pull and get the phone out. Looks good, but is very rigid so you can put the phone in then sling it in your pocket or bag and know it won't be damaged.
Tried the jelly cases where you don't have to take the phone out to use it, but they make the phone ugly and thick, and don't protect the screen from damage at all, so glad I ended up with this. Well worth the money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful shreddeer don't buy it, 1 Feb 2009
Very poor performance for the price. Keeps cutting out and jamming and won't shred more than a sheet of paper at a time.
Avoid this one at all costs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little phone, 19 Mar 2008
This is a great little phone for the money. Small and slim, well-built, takes photos, makes calls - highly recommended.
No problems at all with it.

SIM-free though, they're a lot cheaper to buy over the phone from Virgin Mobile.
