5.0 out of 5 stars Good cheap sleeve for Galaxy Note 8.0, 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fits the Galaxy Note 8.0 perfectly, in my opinion. It is quite a snug fit - you do need to tug slightly to pull the tablet out of the sleeve. However, you can be confident that the tablet won't fall out of the sleeve while you are carrying it.
I'm happy, I like it! (And it's a nice pink colour!)

2.0 out of 5 stars OK for 6 months as long as it points in the direction you want..., 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mine lasted 6 months of light use (no pun intended) before flickering once this morning and dying. While it lasted, the light was bright and clear and the lamp itself never got hot.
I couldn't persuade mine to swivel in the direction I wanted. The picture shows the lamp pointing in the same direction as the clip - so if you clipped it to a wall shelf it would shine onto the wall, not into the room. There is a certain degree of tilt and swivel, but never enough to get it to point where I wanted. I found it quite frustrating... and the fact that I tried to force it to do what I wanted may have contributed to the fact that today it has died.
Anyway, since it didn't do what I wanted, I'm not going to bother arguing that it should have lasted longer. I'm buying one with a flexible neck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly..... a good purchase, 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was a little dubious about buying this, since several reviews state that it is murder to set up. It isn't.... you just have to keep calm and not expect the "auto set-up" option to work.

Firstly, on the back of the extender there is a sticker. Make a note of the last 4 digits of the MAC address.

Plug it into a wall socket anywhere within wireless range of your router/access point. This doesn't have to be where you want it to live after set-up - but you have to be able to connect it to a computer for now. If you have a laptop then it is fairly easy. In my case I plugged it in next to my desktop PC just to get it set up and working.

Connect it to a laptop or PC using an ethernet cable (they've even put one in the box to help you) and switch the extender on. Leave it for a minute or two to wake up. Open your browser (they suggest IE or Firefox) on the computer and either go to "192.168.1.2" or use the URL given on the instruction sheet ([...] where xxxx is the last 4 digits of the MAC address which you noted down earlier). Log in using user name "admin" and p/word "1234" (also given on the instruction sheet). This opens the setup page and, if the wizard doesn't start by itself, there is a button in the top right hand corner of the screen. Follow the instructions, selecting your network SSID and input your key/password. I do suggest altering the SSID of the extender, otherwise you cannot tell whether you are connecting to your original access point or the extension (I just added EXT to the end of the SSID). Click APPLY and let the unit restart, and it just works!

You can now disconnect the ethernet cable. At this point, check that your laptop/PC can connect wirelessly to the extender. Then, move the extender to where you want it. Plug in it and leave it for a few minutes to settle down (time for a coffee?), then check again that you can connect. It all worked perfectly for me, and has increased my wifi signal greatly. My access point is on the landing, and I use the extender downstairs.

Not too bad to set up, and does exactly what it says on the tin! Also, it is small, neat and quite unobtrusive. A neat touch is that you can use the setup page to switch off the LEDs if you want, so that the unit is even less noticeable.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am in love with this purse!, 23 Jan. 2013
I thought for weeks before buying this purse as it is so ****** expensive.... but the temptation was too strong and I ordered it (in the Black Pace colour) for myself as a birthday present. OMG it is beautiful....

The leather is soft and supple and it smells gorgeous. The colours are vibrant the contrast top-stitching appears to be strong and even. The velcro pocket on the front is perfect for a phone - my Galaxy S2 fits it perfectly. The purse itself in in 2 sections, each with a zip. The front section has the credit card slots and ID pocket, plus a very neat pen and the large rear pocket (which is shown on the picture with bank notes in). The rear zipped section is the part I use for cash - I prefer to keep notes and coins together in this section (even though I have to fold the notes).

The shoulder strap is thin but strong, and attaches securely to the purse with silver lobster clasps. The strap is plenty long enough for the bag/purse to be worn across the body (and I have an ample body for it to cross!)

I think the strapped purse is a brilliant idea. I don't have to carry a handbag all the time - this holds my money, cards, phone and some business cards, plus some paper and a pen if needed. I clip my keys (also on a lobster clasp) to the purse and this is all I need.

Love it. Love it. Love it.

This is not going back......!


Pro-Tec Executive Leather Vertical Flip Case Cover for Samsung Galaxy S2 - White
Pro-Tec Executive Leather Vertical Flip Case Cover for Samsung Galaxy S2 - White
Price: £17.59

5.0 out of 5 stars A smart, stylish leather case which fits the S2 perfectly, 27 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A smart, stylish leather case which fits the S2 perfectly. I have had no problem with the magnetic closure.

I chose this case as it hinges at the bottom of the phone, so when you use the phone, the flap is under your chin. Many cases seem to open at the top, which must be very uncomfortable to use.
The phone snaps in and out of this case very easily, so I tend to use the case sometimes and leave it off at other times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snug, warm, waterproof boots, 26 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my second pair of Hi-Tec boots. I bought the first pair in a shop, so I knew that there was a likelihood that I would need a larger size than normal. Amazon were offering these boots at a great price, in the black colour that I wanted, and offering free returns - so I ordered my normal size (6) AND a size 7 as well, knowing that I could return the ones that didn't fit.

They are snug on the sizing - I am a size 6 in all shoes except Hi-Tec boots, where I need a 7. These are the same.

The boots are warm, snug and waterproof. They are a little harder to get on and off than they look, as the front of the boot does not pull open to let your feet in and out. I assume this is because it would be difficult to make a boot waterproof if it opened at the front! The laces are there purely to allow you to adjust the fit. There is another lace around the top of the boot, presumably so that you can tighten the top to stop water or snow getting in. Personally I have built-in waterproofing as my calves are ample enough to seal the top of the boots anyway! I am thinking of maybe cutting the top lace off my boots, as it tends to flap about and get in the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulously green lights!, 26 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these lights for an outdoor 6 foot Christmas tree in my porch.

The lights are easily connected and worked straight out of the box. Instructions were clear and easy to follow.

The lights are the most amazingly bright green! My tree gives off a clear green glow which can be seen right down the street. My only negative comment (and this is my fault, not the product, hence no stars deducted) is that I wish I could have found lights with dark cabling, as the "clear" cable on this set is very noticeable when looking at the tree in daylight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice bag - but opening smaller than bag!, 26 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have too many Kipling bags to mention - so I was in no doubt that this one would display the same high quality and effortless style that the others do. I love the Black Heather colour - black goes with everything I wear and the slight silver sparkle adds a bit of interest!

I love the way that, with Kipling bags, you can alter the length of the strap to wear it either on one shoulder or across the body.

This bag has one main zipped compartment with the usual pockets, key tag etc. and another zipped pocket on the back of the bag. The front pocket has velcro closures.

The only issue I have with this bag, and the reason I have only rated it 4-stars, is that it is described as measuring 31cm x 22cm.... making it seemed to be perfect for carrying my new tablet PC (which measures 28cm x 18cm) with a spare 3cm in each direction. Unfortunately I cannot get my tablet into the bag because the opening is only 27cm wide. Grrrrr!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little sticky arrows!!, 26 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can I say - this are sticky arrows, in 4 colours, that you can use to mark pages in a book or words on a page. They are only sticky at the "pointy end" of the arrow, so if you use them to mark a page, you can leave the other end poking out of the book.

I use them to mark recipes that I want to try - different colours for starters, mains, puddings and others.
