5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended, 20 Oct 2014
Reason for buying:
I decided to buy this product because not only was it the number #1 selling protein powder on Amazon but I had heard a lot of good things about the product. I wanted to see for myself if it lived up to all the hype.

Ingredients and Nutritional Profile:
Refer to product image and description.

Taste:
When I first tried the product by adding 1 scoop (30.4g) of powder into 350ml of water, I found that it did not taste as nice as I expected. It tasted slightly artificial and watery. However I found that I got to like the taste a lot more as time went by and I did not get sick of it by the end like I did with many other protein powders. If you want to enhance the taste of this product and make it less watery I recommend having it with semi skimmed milk or full fat milk.

Mixing:
I found that the product mixes really well in water, milk, porridge and smoothies. I have not come across a product that mixes any better.

Results:
After taking the product for 2 months, 3 times a day, whilst weight training 4 times a week and doing cardio 3 times a week I found that my strength and muscle growth had improvement, I had more energy and I was getting more toned. It was mostly evident around my arms and chest where my T-Shirt got tighter. I could lift 5-10% more and I felt a lot stronger even when I wasn't in the gym. It is now the only Whey Protein powder that I am willing to use.

When to take:
I had 1 scoop for breakfast, Pre training and post training mixed with Dextrose. Having Dextrose at the same time drives the amino acids into the muscles much quicker. If I don't fancy a shake first thing in the morning then I will mix 1 scoop with my porridge or smoothie.

Although all the different flavours taste the same in terms of standard, the chocolate based flavours go better on their own, with dextrose or mixed in porridge whilst the fruity flavours go better either on their own, with Dextrose or with smoothies. All the flavours taste reasonably nice but they will never win any awards for best tasting protein shakes.

Other Whey Products:
Although there are more Whey protein powders out there that taste better, I do not believe that any can match this for results vs price and it's easy to see why the product is so popular with Body Builders and Athletes. The product can also be used by anyone that does not do exercise (male or female) but want to increase their protein intake.

Negatives:
The only negative that I could identify was that the product contains Sucralose which is not the healthiest sweetener around, however you will find that most protein powders have this type of sweetener in them.

Verdict:
Highly Recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars High Quality Product that's ideal as a direct replacement for ice cube trays, 20 Oct 2014
Disclaimer: This product was sent to me by the Manufacturer / Supplier for an honest and unbiased review.

This product is made of high quality material that's fit for purpose. The ball is made of a thick flexibly rubber material and has a very simple design. The ball is about the same size as a tennis ball and consists of 2 subunits which fit intricately into each other and has a small hole at the top that you fill with water.

After filling both balls with water and waiting several hours for them to fully freeze I pulled them out of the freezer, separated the 2 sub units gently and had a perfectly formed rounded ice ball that was easy to remove from the product. There was an additional thin outer layer of ice around the middle of the ball where the 2 halves met which had formed however it was easy to remove.

The ball could easily fit inside a pint glass and reached 1/2 way down a 350ml glass. There was no freezing damage caused to the product and no water leakage inside the freezer.

After using the product for several days I really liked it and found it easier to fill and empty than having to fill 1-2 trays of leaking ice cube trays that take up more space in the freezer and are more likely to tip over. My 5 year old and 12 year old nephews really liked them and were excited when we removed them and they saw the ice ball. They would also be ideal for parties.

Verdict: High Quality Product that's ideal as a direct replacement for ice cube trays

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent Leather Sleeve For iPhone 6, 20 Oct 2014
Disclaimer: This product was sent to me by the Manufacturer / Supplier for an honest and unbiased review.

This product is about the same length and width as your hand and is constructed of reasonably high quality material that's fit for purpose. The phone is designed specifically for an iPhone 6 and although it looks very little like leather, the strong smell would confirm that it is leather. The outer surface is thin, matt (non shiny) and dotted patterned leather whilst the inner sections are made of thin, hard, smooth plastic and matt, squared patterned soft plastic.

When you open the sleeve it consists of a standard wallet-like design on the left hand side with a deep pocket for holding notes, a transparent medium sized compartment for holding a single photo and 1 small slot for holding a couple of stamps or a couple of coins at the most.

The right hand side consists of a removable hard plastic casing with a magnetic feature to house your iPhone 6 which is perfectly sized and holds the phone in place whilst allowing access to most buttons and ports to your phone. The sleeve can support viewing of your phone on a flat surface in a landscape orientation by removing the magnetic casing and resting it on the end of the left and right sleeves.

The left and right sides are held firmly together by a magnetic clip that's hidden inside the leather. It also comes with an optional thin, flexibly handle which fits inside a dedicated hole near the top.

Although this isn't the type of sleeve / cover or case that I would usually buy for my own phone, if i was looking for one of this particular design then I would have no issues with choosing this product.

Verdict: Decent Leather Sleeve For iPhone 6

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, Efficient and Excellent Value, 16 Oct 2014
Disclaimer: This product was sent to me by the Manufacturer / Supplier for an honest and unbiased review.

What is it and what does it do?:
This product is a compact, high speed, hard drive docking station with cloning function that is compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems.

Contents:
- FD2002 Docking Station
- USB 3.0 Data Cable
- Mains Power Adapter
- Instruction Manual

Quality:
During the unpacking process it was evident that the product is made of very high quality material and is with the best that I have seen. It's constructed of a matt, black, lightweight plastic and resembles a high end toaster at first glance. The product is about the same length and width as a Mini iPad and a similar depth to the length of your thumb.

Design:
The design is reasonably simple with all the buttons, ports, LEDs and insert slots being located on 2 of the 6 surface panels. The rear of the unit contains the ON/OFF switch, the DC12V port (for charging) and the USB 3.0 port which connects the Docking Station to your Laptop or Desktop computer via the USB 3.0 Data Cable (supplied).

The upper surface panel of the unit contains a 'clone button', Power LED, Data transfer progression LEDs and the entry slots for the Hard Disk Drive (HDD). There is a single rubber pad in all 4 corners of the base which will prevent the product from sliding on smooth surfaces such as desks and tables.

Instructions:
The instructions are well written and are presented in a small instruction booklet. The information contained is clear and concise and is presented in a text, tabulated and image formats. There is sufficient information contained within the manual for you to set up and operate the product in an effective manner.

Set Up:
The initial set up process was very straight forward and involved connecting the Docking Station to the mains via the Power adapter and connecting the USB 3.0 Data Cable from the Docking Station to the Laptop / Desktop computer. The HDD then gets placed inside the Dock in an upside-down position (text on the HDD facing downwards), vertically. The Hard drive slotted in easily with only a minimum amount of pressure needed.

Both my Mac Pro and Business Desktop Computer software systems recognised the Dock and Hard Drive very easily and quickly at the first time of asking and connected with them successfully with no reportable issues.

Performance:
The data transfer rate was extremely impressive given the amount of information that was transferred and was only possible due to the high speed USB 3.0 capability. I tested it on several different hard drives that we had lying around the office, from varying ages and found the Dock / System to be compatible with all types. It's small size enabled me to have it next to the Computer whilst I could continue to perform other tasks without impeding on my working abilities.

I then disconnected the USB 3.0 Data Cable and tested its offline cloning abilities by simply inserting both HDD hard drives into separate slots of the Docking Station and pressed the 'Clone' button for a few seconds and pressed it again when the 100% LED lights up.

The transfer rate was of a relatively fast speed with no reportable issues during the cloning process. I then evaluated the HDD and found that the data had been successfully transferred with no disk corruption or identifiable errors.

At the end of each process I removed the Hard drives relatively easily with only a small amount of lifting pressure required and this could only be performed after you have stopped all data access and data transfer by selecting the appropriate option for the relevant operating system (Windows or Mac).

Warranty:
The product also comes with a full warranty in the event that you do have any problems that the company cannot assist you with and full company contact details are provided on the warranty (Telephone number and E-Mail address).

Summary:
The product performed all tasks to the required standard and all the features worked very well as expected and I did not encounter any issues with the product during testing.

I believe that the product offers very good value for money given the performance vs price tag and I would therefore highly recommend it.

Verdict: Powerful, Efficient and Excellent Value

5.0 out of 5 stars High Quality Product At A Reasonable Price, 16 Oct 2014
Disclaimer: This product was sent to me by the Manufacturer / Supplier for an honest and unbiased review.

Size Tested: HT-UH012 USB 3.0 10 - Port Hub + 5V 2.1A Smart Charging.

What is it and what does it do?:
This product is a high speed USB data transfer and charger port hub that is powered by the mains and links either a computer or laptop to number of different types of devices that have USB connections.

Contents:
- Hoo Too 10+1 USB 3.0 Hub
- USB Data Cable (3.3ft)
- 12V/5A Power Adapter (7.5ft)
- Instruction Manual

Quality:
The product is made of high quality material that's fit for purpose. The 10 port Hub unit is made of black, glossed (shiny) plastic material which makes the product lightweight. The port is slightly bigger than an iPhone 5 in width whilst it's length is slightly smaller to that of a Mini iPad.

Design:
The design is simple and is reasonably in line with most other 7-10 port USB hubs that you will come across. One side contains all 10, 3.0 ports in a line with a distance of about 1cm between each port with their corresponding number above next to a LED for each.

The opposite side contains a DC 12V port which connects the Hub to the power mains, an USB 3.0 which connects the Hub to a Desktop Computer or Laptop, a power on switch and a 5V charging port for certain devices.

There are small rubber pads in all 4 corners of the base which will prevent the product from sliding on smooth surfaces such as desks and tables.

Instructions:
The instructions are well written and are presented in a neat, compact 8 page fold out booklet. They are presented in both text and tabulated formats and contains all the necessary information that you will need to operate the product effectively. There is also a trouble shooting guide included in the event that you should encounter any problems and full global contact details of the manufacturer are provided.

Set Up:
The Set up is very straight forward and involves firstly connecting the Hub to the mains indirectly via an AC/DC Adapter (provided) and switching on the hub. You then need to connect the hub to your Desktop Computer or Laptop directly via the USB Data transfer Cable (supplied) and switch on your Computer / Laptop.

Note: Although I was unable to get the product to work initially with my home laptop, I took the Hub to work and had more success with it after testing it with 3 different computers and 2 laptops.

Performance:
I tested the product on a wide range of devices that I either had taken with me to work or had used from the office. Each PC and Laptop recognised the Hub very quickly and there were no software issues to contend with. When each USB device was inserted into each port of the Hub, it recognised each device as a separate entity and each corresponding LED illuminated accordingly.

The 3.0 data transfer speed was impressive and was noticeably faster than the 2.0 ports that I have used. When I used it to transfer a significant amount of large photo files that we had on our company camera, it transferred the files very quickly indeed.

I also used the 5V charging port to charge a number of small to medium sized devices and it charged them successfully with no issues. There were no interruptions in data transferring or charging and overheating of the product was kept to a minimum.

With most Desktop Computers and Laptops not having enough USB ports to satisfy all users, I believe that this product is ideal to have in homes and offices and enables you to insert a large amount of USB connections in 1 product without the need of having to constantly swap between various devices. It's also a bonus to have a Data transfer USB hub that can also charge certain devices without the need of having to charge them seperatly.

Safety:
In addition to providing a fast and efficient means to transfer data whilst charging a device, the product also has a built in current protection system which protects both the product and your devices from electronic damage.

Warranty:
The product also comes with a 12 month warranty in the event that you should experience any problems with the product and full contact details of the manufacturer are provided.

Summary:
The product performed all tasks to the required standard and I did not encounter any problems whilst using the product.

Verdict: High Quality Product At A Reasonable Price

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Mains, Car Chargers and Micro USB Power Lead, 15 Oct 2014
Disclaimer: This product was sent to me by the Manufacturer / Supplier for an honest and unbiased review.

What is it and what does it do?:
This product is a set of USB mains and car chargers that is suitable for charging a wide range of small to medium sized devices that support USB charging. The product also has a micro USB power charger cable that is suitable for charging a wide range of devices.

Contents:
- Poweradd USB Car Charger
- Poweradd USB Mains Charger
- Micro USB Charging Cable

Main Specifications:

USB Mains Charger-
- Model = PR-M525
- Input = AC 100V - 240V
- 50Hz/60Hz 0.3A
- Output = DC 5.0V 2.1A

USB Car Charger-
- Model = PR-M631
- Input = 12-24V
- Output = 5V DC 3.1A

Quality:
The products are made of high quality material that's fit for purpose. They are well built, elegant and stylish. The thick outer casing of both chargers are constructed of a high quality, white, glossed (shiny), hard plastic whilst the rim of the chargers have a silver, metal, circular feature that further enhances their look. Both are lightweight and have a size that's in line with all other chargers of their kind.

Design:

The Mains charger has a standard design and resembles a standard mains plug with an extended 2cm rear casing. There are 2 ports (not labelled) that have an output of 5.0V/2.1A. The distance between each ports will be ample for most devices and have a neighbouring blue LED light which indicates that the device has been successfully switched on and is functioning correctly.

The Car charger is about the same size as your thumb in both length and width and has a standard basic design with one end making direct connection with the cigarette lighter port whilst there are 2 ports (adequate space between each) next to each other with an output of 5V/3.1A.

Performance:

Mains charger-
After I tested the Mains charger at home and in work (over a period of several days) on my iPhone 4s, iPad2 and Mini iPad I found that charging initiated instantly with no delays and they continued charging until they were fully charged. The charging speed of all the devices was impressive and with the best that I have seen. All devices were charged equally as fast as the Apple chargers and it managed to charge the iPad2 and Mini iPad at exactly the same time at a decent speed. There were no power interruptions during the charging process and the amount of overheating was equal to that seen with normal Apple chargers.

Car Charger-
The charger slotted nicely into my car cigarette port with no issues and could be removed with very little effort. I used the Car Charger during a 4 hour business drive and tested it on all 3 devices (same as above) in different combinations. Charging commenced as normal and it managed to fully charge all my devices at a very respectable speed. There was very little overheating and no interruptions in the charging process even though I frequently drove through built up areas which had large speed bumps on the road.

Micro USB Charger:
The additional USB charger cable that was provided in the package with the other 2 chargers was used to support the charging of a high capacity (10000mAh) USB Portable Power Battery Bank for several hours. Both ends of the lead (USB and Battery Power Bank charging connection) could be inserted with no issues and it successfully supported the charging process for several hours with no overheating or delay issues.

Summary:
The 3 products performed all tasks to the required standard and I did not experience any issues with the products during testing.

Verdict:
Very Good Mains, Car Chargers and Micro USB Power Lead

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish jumper at a very good price, 15 Oct 2014
Disclaimer: This product was sent to me by the Manufacturer / Supplier for an honest and unbiased review.

Product: KTZ030NAV3 (Cotton Button Neck Jumper)
Colour: Plain Navy
Size: Large

During the unpacking process it was evident that the product was made of high quality material that's fit for purpose. It is made of 100% cotton and is relatively thick and heavy.

My statistics are 6ft, 13st with a 40inch chest and I found the jumper to be an excellent fit. When I put it on it felt nice against my skin and I found that the length was ideal, whilst the sleeves were an appropriate length and came to the edge of my hands without being too long. It has a good, strong, solid, 4 button neck opening that has an ideal length for allowing the exchange of air. There are no logos on the front or back.

I wore the jumper all day as I was working from home and I found it to be very comfortable. I also wore it the same day to conduct my weekly shopping and also to the restaurant in the evening with my girlfriend. She really liked it and said that it was very much in fashion at the moment for a wide range of age groups (18-60). I did not have any issues with it during use.

I believe that this product would be suitable for use in Spring, Autumn, Winter and suitable for use in both work (as long as your dress code policy allows it) and at home. It's diverse comfort and style allows you to wear it either in a relatively formal setting or informal setting and it would blend in equally as well in work, restaurant, pub, walking the dog, or wearing around the house.

I believe that it would go well with either a business trousers, chinos, combats or jeans, with shoes or trainers. I have paid much more money for this type of clothing in the past which have been of a less superior quality.

I successfully cleaned the jumper in accordance with the manufacturers instructions and it did not lose colour or shrink during any stages of the cleaning process.

Verdict: Stylish jumper at a very good price

When I wore it, it felt nice against my skin and I found that the length was excellent, whilst the sleeves were a perfect length and came to the edge of my hands without being too long. It has a good, strong, solid zip that comes all the way down to the chest area. There are no logos on the front or back.

I wore the jumper to work and found it to be much more comfortable than a shirt and tie and found that the opening and closing of the neck zip feature worked very well in keeping me cool / warm and I did not have any issues with it during use. The feedback that I received on its appearance from the girls in the office was of a positive nature.

When I returned home from work and changed from my trousers into a tracksuit trousers, I decided to keep the jumper on until I went to bed. I found it to be very comfortable and with the best that I have owned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern, Stylish and Lightweight, 15 Oct 2014
This product is a sleeve for the Mini iPad that is designed to protect your device from damage.

The product is made of high quality material that's fit for purpose. It's modern, fashionable and stylish. It looks very much like a handbag at first glance.

The inner and outer sleeve material is made of a soft lightweight fabric whilst the closing clip is made of leather imitation and is as long as your middle finger in full length.

Although it seems that the Mini iPad enters and exits the sleeve by opening the top 1/3 of the product in the same way as a handbag would open, that is not the case as the iPad enters the sleeve from one side only and fits nicely inside in terms of width and length.

There is no zip or button closure on the top, only a single clip. The leather clip closes very securely via a magnetic mechanism and holds the device firmly in place even when tipped upside down. The leather feature goes really well with the rest of the product and further enhances it look.

Although this is not the type of sleeve that I would personally choose, my girlfriend really liked it and liked it enough to swap it for her standard plain plastic case. Her reasons were that it looked a lot nicer than her old standard case and she said that she could put it in and remove it a lot faster and more efficiently than having to reply on a zip which can be problematic from time to time.

Verdict: Modern, Stylish and Lightweight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Quiz Book To Play On Your Own, With Your Family And Friends, 15 Oct 2014
Disclaimer: This quiz book was provided to me by the Author / Agent / Publisher for an honest and unbiased review.

When I was asked to review this book by the author I was hesitant to accept the offer at first because I had read so many quiz books over the years and found that none had met the required standard, however this book is different.

The book has been well written / structured and contained sufficient information to keep me interested and wanting more. This quiz book consists of 101 multiple choice questions and answers spread over 56 pages (iPad2 Kindle) and presents the questions and answers in blocks of 10 before moving on to the next 10 questions.

The questions are immediately followed by answers and what I liked about this set up was that you don't have to flick to the end of the book to search for the answers and lose where you were at. What I also liked about the answers was that whilst some answers were 1 worded, some expanded on the answers further by providing more interesting facts relating to the answer which makes things more interesting and enjoyable.

The categories are diverse and unlike other quiz books that I have read there are no subjective questions as the questions are simple and straightforward. Many of the questions are linked to each other which is an useful feature.

When I went through this with a 52 year old fan that has been supporting the club since he was 15 and that had good knowledge he said that he found the questions wide ranging, challenging and found that a good memory was required in addition to good knowledge. For personal reasons he had not been following the clubs most recent events and only managed to answer about 1/2 of the overall questions.

Whilst some of the questions are ideal for the younger audience with less knowledge of the club, certain questions will prove to fully test the knowledge of the most seasoned fans. The content ranges from the early history of the club to as recent as the 2013/2014 season.

I believe that the book would suit a number of different people from a number of different backgrounds. It would be ideal to read either on your own or with a larger group of family members or friends.

Verdict: Interesting Quiz Book To Play On Your Own, With Your Family And Friends.
