AOHANG Unisex Casual Stainless Steel Gold Roman Numerals Round Movement Quartz Wrist Watch
AOHANG Unisex Casual Stainless Steel Gold Roman Numerals Round Movement Quartz Wrist Watch
Offered by Aohang
Price: £5.98

4.0 out of 5 stars Smart looking "budget" watch, 23 July 2016
A complimentary sample was provided for reviewing purposes and it arrived a bit poorly presented, in a plastic pack.

Note: The watch was squeezed into the pack and was almost impossible to remove, with catching the buttons on the side.

I didn't have any issues when I pushed it from the back and prised it out, rather than dragging it.

At the time of review, it was available in 3 different colours and I received the "White", which was referring to the dial and not the stainless steel body.

From a quality perspective, it was well made at this price point and was about average sized and average weight.

The design was modern and classic and it looked good in terms of appearance and more than the current price point suggests.

On the dial, numbers replaced Roman numerals and it had 3 smaller dials and the date. Sadly, the small dials and 2 large buttons had no clear function and may have been for decoration purposes.

The main button did work though and adjusted the time and date by pulling it out in 2 different levels.

The only real niggle that I had was that the metal band moved as I pushed it and the buttons did not feel strong which meant that I had to be delicate with it.

To be far though, the price could not have been any lower and I would recommend it to someone who isn't concerned about having a gift box and want a good looking, comfortable and good time keeping watch, without breaking the bank.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made and offers something different, 22 July 2016
A complimentary sample was provided for reviewing purposes and it arrived quite nicely presented in a resealable transparent pack.

Note: At the time of review, this product was available in several different colours and I received the "Coffee".

From a quality perspective, it was no doubt high quality and although it was the same size and weight as your average retro / classic rucksack, it was a lot more compact and offered something different.

Admittedly, I would have preferred to have seen more padding on the front and middle, it did have a lot of padding on the adjustable back straps.

The design, in coffee looked first class and certainly didn't keep things simple, as it had an unique arrangement of pockets.

The exterior was made of canvas and the interior was made of a smoother and more luxurious, softer and smoother material, which was quite easy to clean.

Tour of the bag
*******************
- Small sized front pocket (1) opens via zip
- Medium sized zipped pocket opened via zip
- 1 small sized zipped pocket (2) near the top
- 2 small sized side pockets secure via clips
- 1 large zipped pocket at the back
- Main compartment opens via zip
- Reveals 1 large compartment with no internal zipped pockets
- 2 small open pockets inside the main compartment
- Laptop sleeve inside the main compartment

The appeal here of course is the uniqueness and quality of the bag and that reflects in the elevated price point.

Admittedly, I would have preferred to have seen a zipped pocket inside and a well padded and elastic velcro attachment, not all users will be carrying laptops and there are 2,zipped pockets on the front.

In use, it fitted my 13.3 inch MacBook Pro and A4 file / books well and although it didn't score full marks, it was certainly worthy of a 4* rating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ticked a number of boxes and certainly worthy of a 4* rating, 22 July 2016
A complimentary sample was provided for reviewing purposes and it arrived in a resealable transparent pack, with a small included as an added bonus.

Note: At the time of review, this product was available in several different colours and I received the "Grey".

From a quality perspective, it was high quality and although it was the same size and weight as your average school bag, it had a bit lacked padding on the front but the and whilst the back had a reasonable amount of padding, the back straps were suitably well padded.

The design, in grey looked quite modern and classic and kept things simple, both in terms of appearance and structural design.

The exterior was made of canvas and the interior was made of a smoother and softer material, which was easy to clean.

Tour of the bag
*******************
- Mid sized front pocket opens via zip
- 2 small sized side pockets can stretch open
- No zipped pockets at the back
- 1st main pocket opens via zip
- Reveals 1 large compartment with no interns pockets
- 2nd main compartment opens via zip
- Reveals 1 large compartment with no interns pockets

The appeal here of course is the addition of 2 main pockets but that came at the expense of the exclusion of smaller pockets inside and a laptop sleeve.

I did like the idea of 2 main compartments and I liked how it had zip extension handles which made them easier to open and close.

In use, it fitted my 13.3 inch MacBook Pro and A4 file / books well and although it didn't score full marks, it was certainly worthy of a 4* rating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite good multi use foldable table that could have been taller, 22 July 2016
A complimentary sample was provided for reviewing purposes and it arrived in a well protected state, with plenty of bubble wrap inside the inner box.

From a quality perspective, it was good quality rather than high and it was made of metal (steel) and moulded plastic, which made it relatively lightweight on the whole.

Admittedly, it wasn't 100% easy to assemble and the securing clips could and should have been looser but were a nice addition.

It looked a bit short at first but could lift up thanks to the extendable feature but I would have preferred if it could have lifted up further.

The upper plastic was smooth, with a matte finish and had an off square pattern embedded within, presumably to make it look less plain.

In use, although I used it mainly as a food table to support a barbecue, I also used it as a support table for my nephew when he was colouring as the height was more ideal for him.

It remained quite steady on the floor and I liked how it had 4 rubber feet and rounded edges. All in all, a decent multi use table that can be used in a number of different settings and offers OK value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ticks most boxes and offers good value for money, 22 July 2016
A complimentary sample was provided for reviewing purposes and it arrived very well presented and it arrived very well presented, with plenty of external protection and an inner bag to keep it in when it's not in use.

From a quality perspective, they were certainly high quality and although they weren't made of real leather (PU leather), they did look and feel durable and the largest handbag was about medium weight given its medium size.

The designs were modern and nautical and they all had what appeared to be small anchor and fish or glasses evenly distributed along the exterior. The inside was brown in colour and was smooth and easy to clean if needed.

Tour of the pockets
******************
- Small purse - 1 zipped pocket reveals 1 compartment with no pockets inside
- Small sized shoulder bag opens via main zip and reveals 1 main compartment and 2 open pockets
- Medium sized handbag opens via main zip and reveals 1 main compartment, 2 small, open pockets, 1 medium sized open pocket and 1 medium sized zipped pocket

Admittedly, I would have preferred if the top could stretch open a bit more but it's the only niggle / area for improvement that I could identify.

I liked the level of detailing on the bag and how well the red trim went with the rest of the bag. I I also liked how the upper corners had strong and solid edge protectors and how it had 4 studs at the bottom to protect the underneath.

All in all, a really nice set of matching bags that offer good value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worked well on the whole, 22 July 2016
A complimentary sample was provided for reviewing purposes and my first impressions were of a relatively light quality product, that was bigger and heavier than I expected.

The LED unit was slightly shorter than a full sized ruler in length and was made mainly of an aluminium core and what appeared to be stainless steel on the stand.

The solar panel was about the same size as an A4 sheet of paper and did not have a control button at the back like some do as the power button was on the LED.

It also came with an user manual, attachment bracket, screw, screw holders and a 3.5m cable.

The cable was permanently attached to the solar panel and the solar panel connected to the LED indirectly, and could be taken off if required.

I use, the 44 LED / 1000 lumen lamp produced a huge amount of light, both in distance and width, given its size, which lowers to about 1/4 strength after about 30 seconds in order to save on battery juice.

The only niggles that I had were a) the 2 cables were not that easy to connect and it took me a few minutes and b) there was only a power button at the back so you have no control over what various other settings (e.g when it comes on, goes off, power, PIR sensitivity etc.

All in all, a decent solar PIR unit that produces more than enough light and can be attached from the solar panel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very stylish sports sunglasses that come in a superb case, 21 July 2016
A complimentary sample was provided for reviewing purposes and it arrived very well presented in a modern yet simple designer inner box.

The sports sunglasses were contained inside a relatively hard, large zipped case, which was well padded and had an attachment clip on one side.

From a quality perspective, the sunglasses were well made, had a relatively thick frame and that made them about medium weight on the whole.

Although I wasn't sure about the colour at first, they did seem to grow on me as time went by and they were no doubt stylish and had somewhat of a futuristic look.

In use, I found that they were comfortable to wear and the thick silicone supporting the nose was flexible enough and I liked how the grip sections at the back made them stay on my nose / face when I was running.

It also came with 5 interchangeable lenses, which were easy to take off / put on and all 5 we're ideal to use in a wide range of environments in the day, night, around water and land.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive gift box and was certainly worthy of a 4* rating, 21 July 2016
A complimentary sample was provided for reviewing purposes and it arrived very well presented in a hard blue gift box, which had a modern and retro design, and a good amount of padding internally and externally.

From a quality perspective, it was quite good quality and made of a white gold plating exterior, making it heavy given its medium thickness.

Although I've seen quite a few of these in my time, this is the first of this kind that I have come across and I quite liked the design on the whole, giving it an unique, modern and retro look.

The structural design of the bracelet was well designed and integrated 24 small diamantés in a line and 2 larger stars, with 1 having 6 small diamantés.

I really liked the gift box as it was with the best that I have seen and I liked how it looked fun and could extend in size.

In use, it was fairly easy to put on and easy to take off and attached via a lobsters claw. I felt that it was more ideal in an informal setting and it was certainly worthy of a 4* rating on the whole.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb presentation and high quality given the price point, 21 July 2016
A complimentary sample was provided for reviewing purposes and it arrived very well presented, in a stylish metal case, which had a healthy amount of padding inside.

I certainly couldn't fault the quality as it was well made and relatively high quality given the price point. It was slightly bigger than your average men's watch and a lot chunkier.

One thing that I noticed was that the buttons were chunkier than normal, rounded and had grip sections, which was certainly a good idea.

It had a basic range of "features" and apart from showing the time and date, it showed the alarm time on the front and a stopwatch within the modes.

It also had a compass direction marking which was for decoration purposes and for reminding user of where they are. It also had a graphics block on the right which changed as the time went by and again, seemed to be there for decoration purposes.

In use, it was comfortable to wear on my wrist thanks to the curved design of the strap and I liked how the band had large and wide holes to stick the thick PIN in.

The watch digits appeared to be dim at first but I then realised that it was meant to be like that, presumably to save on the battery and to offer something a bit different. A quick press of the top left button activated the screen digits which made it a lot more visible to see.

All in all, a really nice watch, that kept the time well and offers good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made rucksack / backpack with an unique design, 21 July 2016
A complimentary sample was provided for reviewing purposes and the graphics design was completely different to all the other backpacks that I have come across.

The letters were red and grey and about the same size as an average sized coin. They went in all directions and fully covered the canvas on the front, back and underneath.

I liked the design as it offered something different and was a change from the polka dot and Aztec designs that currently seem to be dominating the school bag market these days.

The quality of the bag was relatively high given the current price point and it was average sized for a school bag and lightweight in mass.

Tour of the pockets
************************
- Medium sized zipped pocket at the front
- Small open pockets on each side
- No pockets at the back
- Main pocket opens via zip
- 1 small zipped pocket inside the main compartment
- 3 small open pockets
- 1 laptop sleeve inside the main compartment

I liked how it had a good amount of padding on the laptop sleeve, adjustable shoulder / back straps and how it had zip extension handles, which made the zips easier to open and close.

The only minor niggle that I identified was that the laptop sleeve didn't have an elasticated velcro section to pull over the laptop to secure it in place.

In use, it was comfortable to use, spacious, fitted my 13.3 inch MacBook Pro, A4 file, books and smaller accessories and I liked it on the whole.
