5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and bright and not overly sensitive PIR, 31 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow, I am amazed at how bright this light is! The sensor is just right and comes on when I open the door and not just every time a cat walks somewhere near.

Seems to charge very well even when installed slightly under an overhang. Hope it keeps charging throughout the winter!

Great price, but this isn't my favourite Tassimo Latte and I wouldn't buy it again. I found the milk is very flat and coffee a little too harsh, plus why do they feel the need to sweeten it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Kipling design, another happy customer!, 31 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been looking at Bagsational for a while now but couldn't decide if it was too big and would encourage me to carry too much around! I decided I deserved a treat and I couldn't be happier.

I love the security of the zip for the main part of the bag but the poppered side pockets just add quick access for some items (great for 500ml water bottles, magazines or books). Even fully loaded, it doesn't feel too bulky and is comfortable on the shoulder or arm or holding in a hand.

As per all Kipling bags, the design and craftsmanship is brilliant and I particularly love this patterned fabric and get lots of compliments about it.

If I were to redesign it, I would add a small zippered pocket to the bag for phone/ purse for secure but quick access but even without this I still love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Kipling - another brilliant bag, 31 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do confess to already owning this bag in another colour, so I knew what to expect size wise. I'm always amazed just how much you can get in this little bag with a pocket for everything; phone, purse, Kindle, lipstick!

Ideal for days when you don't want to carry too much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great design, good to use, 31 Aug 2014
Great design and feels great to use. The tiny USB adapter stores neatly into the mouse when not in use and unfolding/ folding the mouse doubles as the on-off switch so you know when it's packed away it's not using up the battery.

Very comfortable to use and installed (Windows8.1) straight away.

Although the first one I was sent was faulty, the replacement has been excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, if a little pricey, all in one, 31 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I waited for over a month before reviewing this to make sure I've had a chance to use it for everyday stuff. I have to say it's exceeded my expectations.

Aside from its looks, which a key reason for choosing Samsung over most of the others, the screen is just gorgeous - great colours, amazing clarity. It's really easy to set up and use and not had any problems with it so far.

Although it's fairly heavy, I am happy to transport it around the house/ office to suit my needs. In the studio/ office it's used for work, on the coffee table for browsing and bedroom for TV! The fact there is just a single cable (power) and everything can be accessed either through the remote control (supplied) or touchscreen, I don't need to move the wireless mouse and keyboard around in most cases.

I've done a little PhotoShop and video editing on it so far and found it to handle everything perfectly.

Windows 8 is actually OK! I did have to use some software to reinstate a Win7 feel (and proper Start button!) as the Metro interface is just not quicker if you're already used to old style Windows.

The few niggles I have are:
- if you put an SD card into the reader, you can't close the flap (left hand side of screen). Wouldn't have taken much more thought to allow you to keep an SD card in permanently AND close it
- the remote control isn't very useful for internet TV services like Netflix. e.g. you can't scroll through the choices from the remote which is a bit of an oversight in my opinion.

Neither of those problems are remotely deal breakers and said

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job. Feels sturdy, 31 Aug 2014
It is just a useful little plastic folder, ideal for keeping receipts for a small business. Comes with stickers to label the dividers into months (two at a time obviously as there are 6 dividers between the 7 pockets).

The plastic feels good quality and not at all fragile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kept me dry so far!, 31 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a slightly longer jacket than most and this is a nice length. I have stayed nice and dry in the summery showers but am yet to try it in proper wet weather! The removable fleece is an added bonus and is quite wearable on its own.

Sizing is on the small side though so probably try the size above the one you'd normally choose

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made but not quite the right shape for a Cavi, 31 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good quality, stitching is very good. Lovely harness in terms of shape and slightly less easy for my dog to slide out of! Very easy to put on and take off - particularly happy that it just slides over her head so I don't have to get wet or muddy just because she is.
Only downside was that although this was a good size around her chest and neck, the underbody was too long so I had to do some sewing myself to amend this. I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel so fairly large chest for a small dog.
