5.0 out of 5 stars A nice iPad case that protects both front and back, 28 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case fits nicely around an iPad Air 2. It protects both the front and the back, includes a stylus and a screen protector too. It's cheap but looks good, has a leather effect and compares very favourably to more expensive cases. It is magnetic and will lock the iPad when closed (unless you disable that setting). It will support the iPad in a slightly raised landscape orientation or in an almost upright landscape orientation. The inside of the front cover has a soft felt, so it's unlikely to scuff the screen or metal of the iPad.

I can't recommend it highly enough.

The Invisible Enemy is good, even though one of its episodes is clearly based on Fantastic Voyage. K9 and Company is not quite of the same quality, though it's not down to the fault of the actors. Sean Chapman and Colin Jeavons steal the show. As for the title sequence and music...

As far as I know, this is the only way to own The Invisible Enemy on DVD, so as a completist, I had to bite the bullet.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have an old PowerMac G4, that uses old-style hard drives that are increasingly difficult to get hold of. The ones inside the machine are definitely on borrowed time, so will need to be replaced. This is an ideal way to use brand new hard drives inside the old beast and future proof it for a little longer. This brand is one of a few that actually work with a Mac.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant collection, 4 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent no nonsense collection. The discs work perfectly in UK players, but bear in mind that there is also an Ultraviolet code included that is US only; it won't work in the UK. Don't let that put you off buying though. It's the best way to own all movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing screen protector that's harder than nails, 24 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This screen protector comes with everything you'll need to get it firmly attached to your phone's screen without air bubbles. There's an alcohol wipe for removing greasy marks, a dust cloth for getting rid of most of the dust on the screen, a sticky strip for removing the invisible particles that you only see after the screen shield is on (just stick and tear this strip repeatedly over the entire screen and the job's a good one), and a small, hard plastic strip for squidging air bubbles from behind the protector out.

Be aware that this isn't a cheap plastic film; it's a glossy, rigid glass cover. The screen shield attached to my phone flawlessly with no air bubbles at all. It doesn't cover the entire screen on an iPhone 6 as it curves away at the edges to meet the metal shell, so you only have the flat portion of the screen covered. This is the area most likely to get damaged. After a month or two in my pocket with keys, coins and USB memory sticks, there isn't a scuff on the whole screen protector.

I employed a test to determine how damage-proof the protector is and tried to scratch it with the edge of a USB connector. No mark was made on the protector at all, whereas a sacrificial glass tumbler had a huge gouge after the same test. There are videos online wherein people use keys and knives to scar these screen shields with no success.

In everyday use, the shield has a lovely gloss to it and the phone will remain responsive to touches. The oil-repellent coating seems better than the iPhone screen's own, and any smudge marks will disappear with a rub from a cloth, or if you carry the phone in your pocket, as you walk.

The downsides? There is a clearly defined white line around the edge of the protector and around any holes that are not covered. It can either make your phone look less gorgeous, or give it a nice aesthetic, depending how you feel about such things. I don't mind it.

Also, if I at some point want to remove the screen protector, I wonder how to do it without getting a huge cut under my fingernail.

From the looks of things, I don't think I will be removing it soon. It is still in pristine condition, and with a good quality bumper case, the phone will remain impervious to damage for a good while yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect fit. Perfect coffee., 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived quickly and fits perfectly. I don't know why some people are having problems getting these correctly inserted. I have been using my AeroPress for a while now and still have plenty of paper filters left over, but thought I'd give this a try. The mesh itself is so fine there's not a single grain of coffee that's going to get through, but it works perfectly with a paper filter in as well just for good measure.

This review is from: Filter Cap Aerobie® AeroPress
Fits perfectly, just like new. Don't know what happened to the last one I had that came with the AeroPress; I probably tossed it by mistake. Worth it to make great coffee again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely great and stuffed full of extras, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Watched the first episode on Netflix (sorry, Amazon) and was completely hooked. I knew I'd want to watch it repeatedly, and there's no guarantee that Netflix won't remove the series, so I bought this. Absolutely great and stuffed full of extras. The gag reels are hilarious; you can tell they had a great time making this.

4.0 out of 5 stars For MacBooks that won't charge - it's unbeatable, 28 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great value battery, considering that some are asking in excess of 5 times the price of this one for an equivalent. It fits perfectly (both physically and aesthetically) and works.

Adds a little extra life to an otherwise power-cable-bound lappy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work for me, 26 Jan. 2011
My experience was as follows: --

1) Clean the screen making sure there's no dust in the room - you'd have to be in outer space to get all the dust off; you can't do it with those cloths they give you.
2) Align the home button with the hole in the screen protector, and make sure the protector is straight with the edges of the iPad - OK.
3) Carefully peel off layer one, while pressing gently to apply the protector to the screen - OK. One or two bubbles can be ousted with a handkerchief-clad credit card.
4) Carefully peel off layer two - Uh-oh. The whole thing's coming away from the screen.
5) Press down where it's peeled away until all the air has gone.
6) Feel smug.
7) Feel less smug the next day when half of it has peeled off again and won't restick.

Six times over.

I thought I would go for a cheaper option so that if it went wrong I wouldn't feel too bad (some protectors are in the £20 region for a single). It went wrong. I don't feel too bad. I'm still not buying these again. I'll settle for cleaning the screen every now and then.
