4.0 out of 5 stars good ... but could be better, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used these for a couple of days now.

Originally i thought the phones werent retracting all the way back - i.e. the cords poking out remained longer then they should have been. However i then opened them fully and found that they retracted fully afterwards. The jury is out if the initial problem was a blip / a problem with the user interface - i.e. me or a design flaw.

And yes i did use the "solid" ends.

In any case the other issue i have is the size. Basically the loop is too big to wrap around your wrist and (for a male adult) too small to twist in half and put it on your wrist, That does work but does dig in a bit. especially after a while.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Good, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nutribullet Graphite 8 Piece Set
I have used a juicer for many years (Breville J3). There are 4 problems with a juicer.

1. The pulp is separated and (despite what they say) has to be thrown away. This has to be done regularly or else things start to kick up a bit!
2. Because the juice has no pulp - basically the fibre has gone (I used to use Benefiber to replace the fibre lost).
3. Although not really difficult to clean, its a pain to do that.
4. You use up alot of fruit and vegetables.

In contrast the Nutribullet :

1. No pulp - so nothing to throw away.
2. Fibre maintained (no supplemental fibre needed)
3, Cleaing is literally a rinse.
4, Less food bought, as the whole fruits / vegetables are used.

Cons of the NB:

Only one really and thats that apples for example need to be cored (I use an apple corer). Oh and its quite loud!

Nuts ?

It does mash up nuts but not completely . I use it for Almond milk and it does do it quite well.

Leaks?

I looked on other sites and they said there was an issue with leaks. I have had it now for about 2 months and there are no leaks i can see. There is a seal in the blade (opposite side to the blade itself) that has actually come off once, but you just put it back in its place.

Yes its a bit pricey, but worth it . Had i had this years ago i would have saved alot on food!

RBA 2 Meter MHL USB to HDMI Cable for Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2, With 10 Year Manufacturers Warranty

4.0 out of 5 stars Works for me...., 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yep worked pretty good with my G note 2. To get it to work:

1. Male HDMI goes into the female on your TV.

2. Male Micro USB into the GNote 2 charger at bottom of the phone.

3. USB MUST be put into a plug with a USB inlet and the plug switched on.

4. Input TV to appropriate HDMI channel, and you get a very chrisp pic of your Phone display (depending on yr TV of course).

Intermitenly mine says "Lead attached" "Lead not attached" but doesnt seem to make a difference as phone still transmits. Well worth the money.

Pros: This does work

Cons: The female USB on the cup is very fragile, because of which the whole thing broke within a month or so.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesnt work and not the same as the box picture, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have put up some pictures (but cant see those at the moment). Basically the one i have doesnt look like the picture on the box and has no LED light at all. In fairness it does look a little like the picture with the Grey strip, (except for the bottom) and there seems to be no LED light on the picture or on the item itelf. I am wondering if its a different model from those which others have reviewed?

Worse than that it doesnt work. It certainly doesnt work as a USB charger and it is therefore unlikely to work as a battery charger. Although it holds the battery in place, since there is no LED light to show if its charging or not and the USB element is a fail, I have every confidence that it doesnt work and should be chucked in the bin. Less than happy!

I have a samsung Galaxy (original) which i have recently upgraded to the Galaxy Note 2. For both of these this works fine. Its much more flexible to have this length of cable - pardon the pun!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good long Cable, retractable it aint!, 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't share the other reviewers enthusiasm. It's a long cable which works fine as such, but as for the housing that's just very poorly made indeed. In fact it didn't go back to the original position and got mangled up inside the mechanism. After straightening this out 4 times, I decided to bite the bullet and break the housing (it didn't take much breaking!).

So in effect I have a 1.8m USB to micro USB cable. Not as neat and tidy as I would have liked but for what I needed it for its actually not important as the length of the cable for me was the main reason for purchase. Therefore it does the job as far as I am concerned. For others though the fact it has a housing may be the reason purchased. If that's the case, sadly I cannot recommend the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feeling hot hot hot, 10 Mar. 2013
Well i have a FAR infrared belt that runs off the electricity. This feels exactly the same as the electric ones highest level, In fact at first you probably wont be able to stand more than an hour or so. The only real difference between this and the electric one (so far) is the electric one has a timer, so in effect you can sleep in it.

Oh and the price of course!

I just wish they had the same thing for other body parts.

I will update if things change after a couple of months.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sticky?, 30 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these after the Patch-it detox patches i was using (10 days) increased from £15 to £30 for 10 day supply. These are obviously much cheaper, and basically seem to do the same thing. The jury is out at the moment on how effective they are. (ive used for 4 days) BUT the thing that is quite annoying is that the sticky pad isnt.

The Patch-it pads look like a plaster, i.e. you peel off the backing and the whole unit fits on your foot. With these you have to:

1. position the pad onto the middle of the sticky after having peeled off the backing tape on the sticky.
2. push the whole thing onto your foot.

This would be fine but the sticky pad really is extremely poor. What i had to do was use surgical tape (3m Transpore) to ensure the pad stayed on overnight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect ... but not far off, 23 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The issue for me was whether i would invest in a new smart tv or if i should buy one of these gadgets.

First cost : this is around £50 a smart tv 600 up. No brainer.

Second functionality: Here i have to admit to a preference - I own an android Samsung Galaxy. This UG007 runs Jelly bean rather than Gingerbread which is on my phone. Jelly bean is the latest o/s. So how does it work - basically the same as my android phone. The benefits are - obviously - a bigger screen. Since you log in via your google account, you have access to your purchased apps.

So here is my summary:

1. Delivery - delivered quite early considering it was from HK. I THINK there was an HDMI short extension lead missing but thats not a huge issue (but see the bluetooth comment below).

2. Running across wireless. This is the one issue really. Personally my wireless signal was not strong enough so i invested in the excellent TP Link TL-WPA281 AV200 Powerline Extender with Wireless N Access Point(http://www.amazon.co.uk/TL-WPA281-Powerline-Extender-Wireless-Access/dp/B0067GS0YO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1356257808&sr=8-1). This is obviously not the fault of the UG007 because when that was installed the system ran perfectly.

However where i would fault the UG007 is the lack of a dedicated ethernet port. Yes you can use the usb (the UG007 has a hdmi (attached to TV), Standard free USB, and a USB which is used to connect the power and micro USB port). BUT if you use the USB port for an ethernet connection then you cannot attach a wireless (or wired) mouse or keyboard.

For me since i have 2 different "routers" (although one is an extension of the other) I cant use the media centre for the UG007 to see my PC as a server. I cannot comment that this would work ok if they were both connected to tehe same router (although that is what it says).

3. Bluetooth - I suppose you could use the bluetooth connection as a basis for a b/t keyboard or mouse. I havent gone down this route - i tried the b/t connection with my phone but its pretty flakey. IF i had the hdmi extension lead it may be better (at the moment i have to put the phone behind the TV for line of sight since the UG007 is behind the TV. If you have an HDMI socket on the side of the TV the b/t might work better. (but then you would see the UG007).

4. Input data. I have a small RF on the non power USB so that i can use the wireless mouse and kboard. It all works, although the "manual" states that the screen keyboard will disappear when a keyboard is detected. That wasnt my experience, but thats not a huge issue. The wireless mouse works fine (you need a mouse hooked up but you can then point and click on the on screen k/board so the keyboard isnt a must. The mouse COULD be wired to the USB but that would be very aesthetic!).

5. since i dont have the media centre available, personally i use the pocket cloud app to access my PC - that is a bit expensive though, and videos for example are unplayable.

6. Documentation. The documentation is basic but the setup is intuitive. Find a HDMI you are not using, plug that in and so long as you have a wireless signal it will load wihin around a minute.

7. Using with an android phone as a remote. I am not sure that you can do this because the server software you would need to run on the UG007 would need to be compatiable with Android and not Windows. It would be good if gmote or similar could work over the wireless but that may come later. (the UG007 has disk space to hold it).

8. Transfering data. I use the excellent dooblou wi fi explorer on my PC to upload and download from my phone using the browser. Again here both PC and Phone have to use the same connection. I would think this would work fine if they did. I dont think you can transfer between android devices (in my case they could just share the TP link wireless connection) but i may be wrong on that one. Of course you can use a micro SD card but that involves some faffing around.

9. Multitasking. Since the system looks like windows (eg Chrome comes as a loaded app) i do admit to looking for the minimise buttons. You can use the ALt-Tab keys though, but when you do only the app with the focus runs.

10. Settings - you will have to change some of these - e.g. time zone. But this is very straightforward both to fins and to do. You can change the k/board layout and play around with the display. You can also move the apps onto the home page - in effect there is an apps page and you can copy the important ones to your home page - same concept as on the phone itself.

Conclusion. All in all for the price i am VERY satisfied with this. For example Catchup TV has no loss of sync between voice and the same for even HD vids on youtube but again that could be a function of my wireless signal strength. Also the UG007 IS portable. If you have a wireless facility you can take it anywhere or use it in another TV in the house. ALL in all, although it cost me another £50 for the wireless upgrade the whole cost was much much less than buying a new smart TV. If you have an android phone this really is a great way to get to smart tv, using the o/s you know and with all your apps intact. If however you are an Apple person its probably best not to go along this route - i have no idea or interest if apple TV works better. As for running netflix or similar, i have to show my ignorance - i dont "believe in" sky so cant comment on that either. However for just using the internet and using apps (without paying for them again!) this is perfect. Using the Kindle app on a large TV is also pleasurable.
