Worked much much better than previous flea sprays I've bought on the high st. Very visibly thick, dense, noxious fog, definitely one to use on an empty house. Have barely seen any fleas since - it is still working, killing eggs as they hatch. Thanks :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Defective, and poor customer service, 5 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item arrived with packaging damaged but product intact.

Set it up according to the instructions (itself a challenge as they are clearly Google Translated Chinese).

Allowed the product to run while I went away, and it served the first two of the four meals and then stopped. I came home to a very unhappy, angry and hungry cat.

Andrew James' customer service terrible - ignored my original returns request then finally responded after I contacted them several days later. Took nearly two weeks to issue a returns code, and probably 3-4 weeks before the funds were back in my account.

My advice - steer clear. Not worth the risk, and certainly not worth having to deal with shoddy customer service.

I've been very impressed with this pad's ability to wipe the windows of my car, every time. Would recommend to anybody who needs to consistently and reliably wipe windows.

The HDMI plugged into the HDMI port on my laptop. The DVI plugged into my monitor. The picture came up on the screen, which pleased me. I've not really touched the cable since. No complaints.

1.0 out of 5 stars American, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very American. A lot of the ingredients referred to are wild and wacky stuff you can probably only buy in health food shops in the US.

Also very wordy - you have to read a few chapters of background info. I was hoping for just a plain recipe book.


Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity Tracker and Sleep Wristband - Black
Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity Tracker and Sleep Wristband - Black
Price: £53.12

3.0 out of 5 stars Hit and miss, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this item to help me increase my daily activity levels. I can't honestly say it's done that - I expected it to do more to prompt you and encourage you to be more active, but it doesn't. It just sits there and stays quiet unless you actually ask if for your levels. I'd hoped it would vibrate or beep or flash or send you notifications via the phone app telling you to get on the move.

I have set the device up to sync with my MyFitnessPal account. There were initially lots of teething problems with this, and from looking on various online forums it seemed clear that this was a long-running issue - however it seemed to resolve itself about a week or two after I got my Fitbit.

There will often be huge discrepancies in the data it collects from day to day. One day I will do a certain number of steps and get so many calories added to my MyFitnessPal account, the next I will do less steps and get double the number of calories. I'm not sure how it is working this out or how this makes sense, it's a little concerning.

The sleep monitoring function is interesting, though of course I have no real way of verifying it's accuracy, what with being asleep when it is collecting this data. It's very tiresome to have to put it into sleep mode and wake it up again in the morning - I very often forget to do this.

The alarm function doesn't seem to work reliably... I've set a few alarms now and there seems to be approximately a 50/50 success rate. Make sure you set a backup alarm!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent option if you don't have any built in connectivity, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had this transmitter for about 3-4 months now. As with all Belkin products it's well made and good value. I use it almost every time I go out in the car,for playing music, using Google Maps and taking calls while driving. Used in conjunction with a cheap USB charger cable and a cheap in-car phone cradle and it's perfect.

The one issue I have had, which is of course not Belkin's fault, is that it will naturally receive interference if you travel over a long distance... You tune the transmitter to a frequency which is empty, but as you move over a distance you come in range of other local stations which might be broadcasting in what was empty space. This is easily solved with the feature built into the device which scans the airwaves for the best frequency to use - though this is awkward to use while driving, especially if on a motorway, and is best done by the passenger if you have one.

Overall, I'd definitely recommend this over some of the cheaper transmitters on the market. Friends who don't have any phone connectivity in their car have been impressed with the device and many have gone and bought their own.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work, false information on packaging and website, 12 May 2011
Firstly, the box stated the device was pre-charged (although admittedly this wasn't said on the website) - and it was completely empty. If I'd bought it in a shop because I needed power there and then it'd be no use at all.

Secondly, there are no connectors supplied for Blackberrys or iPods/iPhones. You'd think there would be really, as some of the most popular devices out there. Also, while the item description doesn't state there are connectors for Apple devices, it *DOES* clearly state that there are connectors for Blackberry - and that is simply a lie.

Finally and most importantly, after charging the device (which took about five hours), it doesn't work. Tried with both Blackberry and iPod (using my own USB cables), and both gave error messages stating that charging was not possible with this accessory, or words to that effect.

Useless item, waste of time. Shame, because it sounded like a really useful item, I really wish it had worked well.
