2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but not quality, 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A heck of a lot cheaper than in the high-street shops but the quality is not good. The pins aren't all the same shade - which won't be too much a problem in most applications but on my Peak Bagging wall map, they don't look as good as they could. The heads sometimes fall off when pulling the pins out of a chalkboard.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and OK but thats it., 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Old Garmin car charger fell to bits after around 4 yrs of about once monthly use. Didn't fancy paying about £25 for a genuine Garmin charger as the Sat Nav won't be worth that now.
Opted for this one as it had decent reviews for the price. Cheap as chips at about £3 but it is just knocked together from cheap plastics and cable (What else would you expect from the price). Does the job but not sure how long it will last.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cut to prefered size, 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our old felt and cover needed replaced so after a quick look on a few websites and Amazon.co.uk I plumped for this felt as we have a Brabantia touch bin and the company seems to make quality products.
The price was about right and the felt seems OK (Had it about 10 months now and hasn't perished or anything). Needs to be cut to size before fitting but instructions are in the bag for those who are unsure how????
Better than the old one nut at he end of the day it's an ironing board felt so lets not get too excited.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and great customer service, 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently bought this item and was pleasantly surprised by how heavy duty it appeared whilst putting it together. The item is indeed well made but unfortunately my package was missing one of the leg bolts. I contacted Amazon and they immediately sent out a replacement - a full unit which I simply removed the bolt to use on my stand and sent the other back via their free post system from a local Spar shop.
Back to the stand - It took about 10 minutes to put together and as I stated before the unit is quite heavy duty (Only about 8KG in weight) and the poles are substantial and the clamp head is very robust.
The unit can be folder for compact storage but this requires removal of the two feet bolts and so isn't a straight forward as it could be (Hence only 4 stars).
It's my first repair stand and will probably last many years. Definitely worth the full price of around £150 (as it is from Chainreaction.com and various other sites) but go with Amazon.co.uk on this one and get it for their knock down price.
This is my first Park Tool purchase but definitely won't be my last if this is their standard construction.


Philips Imageo Rechargeable LED Candle Lights - White, Set of 3
Philips Imageo Rechargeable LED Candle Lights - White, Set of 3

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value, 29 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I paid £15 for the white ones (which glow yellow / orange like a normal flame), stuck them on charge for 12hrs and then tried them out. The 'flame' has a flicker effect, which isn't completely genuine looking but has people asking if we are crazy hazing candles so close to curtains.
I've only had them for a few days but they live up to their 24hrs of charge that is stated on the instructions and if the batteries are anything like modern rechargeable units then we shouldn't see any memory affecting the usage in the near future.
The 'pick up and tilt' On/Off function is a winner as is the induction charging.

Anyway, I'm off to purchase another 3 and possibly try out some more of the Imageo range as they mean worry free candle lit rooms and will come in handy if this cold weather ever ends and we get on the decking for a few nights in the summer.


5 x DuraSec ClearTec screen protector for Sony HDR-SR12E
5 x DuraSec ClearTec screen protector for Sony HDR-SR12E

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 29 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered the screen protectors for my Camcorder as the screen had a couple of near misses with rings and things. I have had it on now for around 12 months (Or around 15 to 20hrs of camera use) and the original is still in place, this is partly because it's a bit fiddly to fit due to the Camcorder LCD display being slightly sunken, but I don't think you can go wrong at less than a quid a pop -- unless it damages the screen when being removed but I can't see that happening.
Can't remember what the packaging was like but it may have been unclear that the protectors were for the HDR-SR12E until you try to fit them - as was the case with some iPhone ones I ordered.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as pictured, 29 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Caution - not as pictured. Ordered them for the footie nets having had the circular ones that simply slip over the net and then twist into place and more to the point, tend not to easily tangle in the net if you leave them on when the nets are taken down and stored.
The hooks supplied were the straight plastic ones with a hook at either end. Easy to fit but a pest unless completely removed when taking the net down.
Couldn't be bothered to send them back and they are a lot cheaper than the hooks in the shops.

3.0 out of 5 stars Roller mouse friendly, 18 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I Bought this on a whim as I fell for the gimmick. Would be excellent for a roller mouse, but is not the best when using an Apple Magic mouse as the rails on the bottom of the mouse tend to rub on the ridges of the mat. I also, now don't see the point in the re-positionability (Aren't all mouse mats re-positionable?). It's true, I do store this one on top of my macbook pro when not in use, but this is inside a carry case with the mouse and so any mat could be stored in this manner. The stickiness is still like new even after a month or so of everyday use i.e Repositioned a couple of times a day.
As hinted at earlier, I think this mouse mat would be fantastic for a roller mouse but for an optical one similar to a magic mouse (any mouse with guide rail things on the bottom) then it's just not nearly as good as a basic mat with a smooth surface.
