Result Safari Waistcoat Camel M

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Product, 21 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Result Safari Waistcoat (Apparel)
My best buy in years! I bought it mainly for travel as it's ideal for holding so many things like wallets, tablets, mobiles, tickets, pens, small flasks, sandwhiches, plastic raincoats, newspapers, pens ... etc etc etc. I also intend to use it on warm sunny days when pockets are at a premium with just a t-shirt and trousers. Can also be used as a DIY work jacket and for gardening. Quality looks fine to me. 'Free' delivery in three days.

Don't hesitate ... a super buy at a very keen price.


ZALMAN Z1 Midi ATX/M-ATX Tower Computer Case - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligently-Designed and Functional Case., 22 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would agree this is an excellent case for the price. It took me some time to figure out how to fit the hard disks but that turned out to be as much my fault as I didn't quite grasp the rather basic graphical instructions. The fitting system (once you 'know how') is indeed excellent and much less fiddly than using tiny screws. However, in case of possible accidental damage at installation or in the future, a couple of spare plastic connectors might be an idea.

The ventilating system is the best I've yet come across in such a relatively inexpensive case. Two large silent fans in good positions and the case exudes little heat even when the computer is on for hours.

There is nothing very 'fancy' or even particularly attractive about this case, it just gets the basics very right indeed, and that means an automatic five stars from me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Admirably Simple & Versatile., 27 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple and versatile design for DVD cases which means these can be used for both double or singles disks as one side also has inset clips. The phrase 'killing two birds with one stone' comes swiftly to mind and that is a refreshingly consumer-conscious change from other more restrictive designs currently on the market.

Ideal for home movie-makers or simply to replace scruffy or damaged retail cases.

Just the job for my Nexus 7-2. Considering the pens came from Belgium not a huge price to fork out either! Worthwhile purchase for greater tablet accuracy/handy pen and to avoid too many finger-marks on screen.

Superb lightweight keyboard ... works a treat and doesn't need much charging. Ideal for sending emails on a tablet or phone when travelling or away from home. Solves the problem of time-consuming and often inaccurate touch-screen typing. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros: Extremely well-packaged so delivered in good condition and within two days. Sturdy table with comfortable seats. Relatively easy to erect. Looks smart and tasteful (pun unintended).

Cons: Centre panel had no pilot holes for screws which is strange and rather disconcerting at first considering everything else is clearly marked and straightforward. The centre panel was raised very slightly in the middle after fixing and I had to drill a further hole in the metal support to allow a further screw fastening in order to rectify.

Considering the relatively low price (which included 'free' delivery) this has to be a recommended buy for anyone who needs an inexpensive, yet not cheap-looking drop-leaf table.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, Simple Product, 10 Mar. 2014

You don't really need instructions as putting together is pretty obvious and, if anything, the instructions are nonsense by referring to fitting a monitor bracket to a flat-backed TV! I did like the warnings about the fixings and the advice to consult a professional if unsure about the type of wall. For dot and dab plasterboard a single 100mm long 12mm diameter Rigifix M6 fixing in the centre hole should be sufficient considering the comparatively minimal weight involved with my single Sky Box, but I've played safe by installing two at each end instead.

I see some reviewers are complaining the legs are too long whilst another thinks these are too short, but seem just right to me.

Good buy as it does the job easily and well, and is not expensive.

Only just used it for the first time to drlll 12mm holes through plasterboard and brick. Did the job with ease but was surprised there was no on/off switch though maybe I've missed it somewhere. Easy to use and seems fine for those heavier jobs not suitable for a cordless machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works A Treat!, 8 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Okay, it's not cheap but it's a stud-finder that actually works, contains a nifty little spirit-level and comes all the way from the U.S. (which no doubt constitutes a good chunk of the price).

Forget these even more expensive electronic alternatives. This is all any amateur DIY-er will really need in the home.

God Bless America!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Product, 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had to to fit a 40" Plasma TV to an almost equally heavy swivel/tilt bracket which had itself to be attached to a dot and dab plasterboard wall. Didn't fancy the hollow-wall anchors for this job one bit so surfed the internet for the best solution and found the Ultimate Handyman video on YouTube claiming the Rigifix is best so ordered accordingly. Very easy to fix .. I happened to possess the right-sized Allen key to tighten the four bolts after drilling. I had originally planned on using six but after I tested one with the bracket I decided that six would really be 'overkill'.

The job was done on my own with the help of a table and other items to raise the heavy bracket to the desired area on the wall and level with the pre-drilled holes. However, failing such deviously cunning solo planning, it is correct to say it is really a two-man job (sorry, ladies!) The holes marked have to be dead accurate to line-up the bracket and try doing that with one arm holding the latter!

The end result of my Rigifix experiment is a stable, perfectly-level TV on the wall. As a 67-year old there is now undoubtedly more chance of me falling to the floor than the TV ...

The perfect product for the task though I do agree with others a little sheet of 'dummies' instructions might be somewhat helpful for those who might not have access to a computer!
