Miadomodo® BDS 22 Synthetic Leather Office Chair DIFFERENT COLOURS (black & blue)
Miadomodo® BDS 22 Synthetic Leather Office Chair DIFFERENT COLOURS (black & blue)
Offered by JAGO24 UK

4.0 out of 5 stars OK: assembly difficult but good back suport, 3 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This chair was pretty cheap for the kind of quality that you can get but the design and assembly is awkward.

Pros:
+ Comfortable and very supportive (my old chair was not very good
+ Pretty good looking
+ Great price (I paid £50 with P&P)

Cons:
- Pretty difficult to assemble - the base on mine seemed lopsided and so on one side the arm was very difficult to attach and screwing the back bracket into the base was very hard
- Slightly wobbly - this could be because I couldn't screw in one screw into the back bracket
- The filling is rather firm - not uncomfortably so but you don't really sink into it very easily but this could change with time
- The headrest is quite low as others have pointed out which wouldn't be too much of an issue if the filling wasn't

So now I have had the product in my hands, would I buy again? Yes at the price I paid or lower. If you really want to have a good chair and you're focused on quality and have a larger budget, you should aim to buy something in the higher price ranges. You're going to have to be prepared to spend at least £300 on something good quality but watch out for low quality chairs at higher prices - they certainly exist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great paper, great value, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
- At 1.548p per sheet (that's including the P&P), the quality was far better than what I was expecting.
- Paper tears out cleanly
- Nice narrow ruling (6 mm instead of the standard 8mm)
- Exactly as described

I can't recommend this enough - if you need a decent amount of lined paper for school or university or work, this is the best value you're likely to get. This is cheaper than the Pukka Pads you get in the supermarkets and at least equal quality. Get it while you can!

3.0 out of 5 stars Colour not quite as pictured, plastic a little too flexible, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Colour:
I bought these primarily because they approximately matched up with the subject colours I have on my Timetable app for school. However, much to my disappointment, the red is more of a pink and the green is just transparent.

Plastic quality:
I thought these might be better quality than a £1 pack (from ASDA) but they seem flimsy. I tested both these and the ASDA ones and I found that it was slightly easier to bend these to the point the paper gets crumpled but really the difference in the paper after crumpling is barely noticeable. One thing that was noticeable, however was the discolouration that I'm guessing was from the work hardening of the plastic. This was less obvious on the coloured wallets than on the clear one.

The Good:
Other than that, they seem relatively sturdy and perhaps less likely to crack and get holes in like the more rigid ones.

- The glue sticks are generally perfect (only one had a small air bubble that has caused no problems).
- There are indeed 100 in the box
- They are the right size to fit in the mini Silverline glue guns
- Only 4.8p per glue stick!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice product, 27 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Positives:
+ Very useful for soldering wires together
+ Clips can hold circuit boards

Negatives:
- Lens is useless for me (I have quite good eyesight)
- Falls over if positioned badly (could do with a heavier/large base)

If you use this product a lot, you may want to fix it to a larger and heavier surface for better stability.
