Eyelevel USA2 1 Polarised Unisex Adult Sunglasses Brown One Size
Eyelevel USA2 1 Polarised Unisex Adult Sunglasses Brown One Size
Price: £10.04

4.0 out of 5 stars Polarised in favour, 12 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the current version supplied is not exactly as Amazon illustrate (the lifting lever is of black plastic rather than bronze finish) the product is a good performer. I tried it on the many frames I have and it fitted them securely. The flip-up action was positive and stays where you put it - important if you use them when driving as I do, when the polarisation too is an asset.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hudl Screen Protector, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a worthy version of that well known accessory game of "Chase the Bubble" in which no one ever makes a perfect score. Using the product provided, I did come close though. A vacuum cleaner helps, since no amount of chasing will eliminate a speck of dust once it's host to an underlining bubble. The instructions say start at one of the narrower ends of the screen but make no mention of aligning the hole through which the front camera is supposed to peer. Even though it's slightly more difficult to start at this "hole side" (the peel off tabs are all at the narrow end) I would recommend it as a starting point. Good luck to all who sail in her!

4.0 out of 5 stars The route to Train Simulator 2014, 1 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this boxed version of Train Simulator 2013 but never actually saw it running because it updated online to the 2014 version when first run, saving about £10 on the original price - one of the advantages of the Steam company's involvement, although I prefer to run the product offline to avoid too much pushy salesmanship (I'm as easy to herd as a cat!).
I come from a background of Microsoft's Train Simulator (MSTS) from 2002, so the change in graphics quality was bound to be obvious and quite impressive (my computer is much younger, from 2009, but I boosted performance by getting a similar video card from eBay and running them in tandem). Some complain at the paucity of routes and trains out of the box but I've found it more than adequete in itself as well as to explore what's provided by the free work from many enthusiast content providers (thanks!).
To any other MSTS old timers out there, I say give this one a try - you may be pleasantly surprised.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lifetime Fan, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have used this product, and the one originally bought in by Simoniz which it replaces, for over twenty years. As a service engineer, I often used it as a gentle non-sticky lubricant (the silicone helps) in some applications. At home, an equivalent use might be on a curtain rail. It incorporates cleaning agents that work quite well too, even with greasy patches on skin, although you have to be careful you don't end up too slippery! The designed-for use is of course accomplished very well and often draws appreciative comments from passengers. It's only a pity that it doesn't last quite so well outside the car (it's essentially an indoor product), although I often apply it to some outside plastic parts in the short term, which gleam as if new again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Value 5, Sound 2 stars, 11 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As most reviewers say, very good value, with a
straightforward operation and no-nonsense keys.
However, the sound tends to let it down so if
you are at all hearing-challenged consider
one you can actually hear perform before
buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Discourage the tamperers..., 11 Mar 2013

As intended, the dust caps very difficult to remove without the special
key, even using make shift tools, so try to carry a spare key
somewhere in case of loss!

4.0 out of 5 stars Best yet, 11 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best gel ink pens Pentel have produced.
The ink is smooth flowing and very quick drying on all
the usual surfaces. At the same time if the tip is left
un-retracted and the pen comes into contact with
clothing, it is unlikely to cause large blots by
the ink being wicked away.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast And Loose, 12 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with all chargers trying to cover a range of batteries, they are never optimised physically for any particular size of battery.
I bought it to charge my Sony NP-BN1 battery (and equivalents), which it does fine electrically, but mechanically the battery is held rather too loosely. Anyone who has a suitably sized rubber grommet, like me, can secure the battery more positively by placing the grommet over the central plastic post at the far end of the charging well whilst charging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feeling Flush, 12 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Liked Most:
Great optical performance, especially the support for HD movies, which are a revelation compared to my old Cybershot S600.

Liked Least:
The flush-mounted movie on/off button, which out-of-box requires too much juggling with a finger nail to operate. Other mobile devices have similar problems because of manufacturers trying to avoid inadvertant operation. If more thought was put into raising and round-profiling the buttons, this might be avoided with less inconvenience in operation. My own solution was to build up several layers of plastic tape (height 0.5-1.00 mm), which I punched out round with an A4 hole punch, then used contact adhesive to stick it on to the original button. So far it works well and looks as though it was meant to be.

4.0 out of 5 stars Guide to Satellite TV (4th Ed. 1997), 20 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Continues to be an excellent mix of theory and practice (I already had the first edition from 1990) but best appreciated by those with a more technical background (unless you're very curious). It's only lacking by being now rather outdated by events (Astra satellites had yet to regroup eastwards for UK readers) but new satellite dish aiming data is easy to find on many web sites. Get it if you like to have probably the best book of its kind.
