1.0 out of 5 stars Very tight fit, AUX gap too small - avoid, 1 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not only is it a very, very tight fit. The AUX hole on the side is not big enough for the audio jack to slot in properly. That's relevant (and frustrating) because one of our devices is not Bluetooth enabled and connects through AUX. In short: pay a bit more and find a better case.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bought two: one was fine, the other a disaster, 20 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was so pleased with the first Duronic luggage scales (LS1008), bought a long time ago, that when a relative visiting us needed it for an ongoing trip, I told her to keep it. So I ordered another one for myself. The second one was a disaster. When turned on, the display shows all the symbols and then turns itself off again. It's not possible to keep the device on. Changing the battery did not help. A complete waste. Annoyed with this low quality product and with Amazon: as I first tested my second scales when I needed them (for a trip tomorrow), just outside the returns period, Amazon refuses to let me return this brand new, useless item. I strongly suggest you look for alternative products.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bought set of three, but one was faulty, 20 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When it works, it's brilliant. I bought a pack of three. Unfortunately, one of them failed. It seems to have a life of its own: it switches on, then off, and then immediately on again, without any movement around it. It's not a battery-related problem. On the contrary, this problem has depleted two sets of batteries, as the device is on most of the time - for no reason.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why should colleagues involved in online learning and teaching read E-tivities?, 10 Nov. 2013
E-tivities are online learning activities designed for learner engagement and active participation. If you are involved in any aspect of online learning and teaching, E-tivities is a book you must read. Let me zoom into two of the many reasons why I believe that to be the case.

Firstly, when you are designing a course, what really matters is not the actual course material, but what learners do with that content to achieve their learning outcomes. E-tivities provide a cheap, scalable, versionable and effective scaffold for learners to make sense of those materials and turn input into intake - together. Even today, in the second decade of the 21st Century, some people create a content repository and pretend it constitutes an online course. Not so: the resource is not the course. Designing for active online learning demands much more of teachers, designers and learning technologists. E-tivities help to make this crucial aspect of online learning and teaching practice fast, focused and fun.

Secondly, the general "obsession with the content", i.e. pushing content of varying quality to learners, expecting them to make sense of it and "use the discussion forum for queries", besides being naïve, relies heavily on learner-content interaction. Such interaction may take the form of reading a document, watching a video, listening to a podcast or doing a quiz. E-tivities invite teachers to embed and learners to benefit from the two other key types of interaction: learner-learner and learner-tutor, in a structured manner, aligned with the course aims and learning outcomes.

I invite colleagues involved in any aspect of online learning and teaching to experiment and innovate with different types of e-tivities. I believe that the impact you might generate will not just be positive, but also transformational.

1.0 out of 5 stars Heated and melted end of cable - BEWARE, 21 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I left this USB charger plugged in, with the USB cable attached to it, but with no device attached to the cable. The next day, the end of the cable was very hot and had partially melted. I repeat - there was no device being charged when this happened. The return period has expired, but the charger is just 2 months old. I am struggling to find a satisfactory solution from Amazon. This charger is too expensive and, in my experience, clearly unfit for purpose.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor, 20 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased 8 bulbs. So far, 4 have failed within a few hours of use. On removing them, you can hear something loose inside. They were intended to replace standard low-energy bulbs, which had been there for years. Very expensive and very poor. Avoid.

1.0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent sizes - buy in a real shop, 22 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the 3rd pair of Crocs I have bought online. Always same size, for my father and myself. However, this time, although the specs are exactly the same (as shown on the soles) the crocs are 2 cm shorter than previous pairs. We only noticed this fault when I gave the crocs as a gift to my dad, who lives overseas. It is frustrating and embarrassing. Also, it is very inconvenient to bring the crocs back to the UK, ship them back, etc. Very poor experience due to these nonsensical, inconsistent sizes. My advice: buy your Crocs in a normal retail store, as Amazon has proved unreliable in relation to sizes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor quality - look for a different Mikado product, 31 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sticks are made of wood of surprisingly low quality. On opening the box, two sticks were already split and unusable. A third one was broken in half. The paint that covers them is, again, extremely low quality. I would have wanted to know these two things before buying the product - that way I would have looked elsewhere. My advice: avoid.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dearer than alternatives, same product, 15 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is too expensive for what it is. Perhaps this is because the seller includes P&P in the product price (so that shipping appears to be free). In any case, there are far cheaper alternatives that do exactly the same job as this iPhone screen protector.
