5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to fit and does the job., 22 Aug 2013

Easy to fit and does the job. Used on a garden gate which is reasonably heave and it woks fine. Easy to fit too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good cheap case, 22 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good cheap case for your iPad Mini. Doesn't add much to the size or weight of the device and helps to protect it. Works as a stand too. Magnets work to switch the iPad on or off when you open and close it. Also seems to be quite durable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good airflow and quiet, 22 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used this fan to replace the original in my Drobo which was very noisy. Other quiet fans I had tried didn't push enough air through the device which caused it to shut down. This fan is quiet (not silent) when on full speed and pushes enough air through the device to keep it cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are collecting these coins get it, 22 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are a casual collector of these coins then this folder is ideal. Has slots for coins from both mints and makes it easy to fit them in. Better than having them loose and makes it easy to see what you are missing. Doesn't take up much space either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slightly dated but worth having, 22 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The information regarding Yellowstone itself and the locations is really useful for planning a trip to the park. Some of the technical information is a little dated now. For example it says that digital cameras won't be replacing film any time soon - the book is about six years old and that has already happened. Recommended if you are planning a visit to Yellowstone NP.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little big?, 22 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a battery and as that does a good job. Obviously too early in their life to see how long they keep the charge longterm. My only gripe is that they seem to be slightly longer than the batteries they were replacing in my mobile hot spot - may only be a mm or two but it was a real struggle to get them into it.

I used to have some of these on LP and had forgotten about them. This set is great value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reduces clutter, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The ability to plug an existing iPad charger into this to give two USB ports capable of charging an iPad is useful at home and when travelling. The adapters should cover most of your international travel requirements. Also saves room in your bag and helps when hotel rooms are short of sockets.

Probably seems expensive but if you bought all the international adapters for your existing apple charger it would probably cost more or close to the cost of this device and you would still only have one USB port.

A flexible option that works and I think does work out to be value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great device, 2 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this to replace my old Bosch drill/screwdriver. The battery on the old one failed but I had had that for so log I cannot remember when I got it and it wasn't possible to get a replacement battery at a reasonable price. This product does the same as my old one but appears to have a bigger battery and comes with two of them. This device is quite heavy (compared to my old one) but also has a little light to illuminate what your drilling or screwing (:-0) in. Hoping this one will last as much as my old one.

5.0 out of 5 stars So comfortable and sound great, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using high end Shure in ear headphones for quite a while and the cables have started to crack and will soon fail. I've had loads of use out of them and they have travelled many thousands of miles with me. Though not uncomfortable, the Shures always made their presence felt and despite trying all of the silicon sleeves not seem to fit that well nor felt secure in my ears. The sound was really good though.

So why choose the Sonomax eers? I wanted headphones that were comfortable and sounded good and had looked at expensive in-ear products but most relied on the silicon plugs to ensure a good fit. Getting a normal set of fitted headphones wasn't out of the question but was quite a lot of money to splash out. The Sonomax PCS-250 reviews suggested the sound was pretty good if not the best but they are custom fit. As they are custom fit you can't really try them before you buy either so it is a bit of a leap of faith.

Once you get them you obviously have to go through the fitting process which is quite interesting! Watch the video on the web site and read the instructions a couple of times before going through the process just to make sure you understand what you are doing. It may be worth having someone to help you ensure the device sits on your head as described in the instructions.

The process is basically but the lubricant on the headphones, stick them in your ears, release the locks and the catches for each ear and wait five minutes. Make sure your head is straight and your jaw is relaxed. You will hear a few noises and the general environment noise fades over the waiting time. Once the five minutes is up use the cloth to clean them and remove the left and right earphones from the device and put the covers on. Your done!

What do they sound like? Initial impressions were that they are quite bright but after running them in for a while the do balance out a bit and it will of course depend on what you are listening to. They have a very good range and whilst you're not going to feel the bass in your stomach it is there. I've tried them with AC/DC, ELP, Buena Vista Social Club to ZZ Top and all sound really good. Like any headphones they do benefit from a decent source. Streaming on an iPhone 4 sounded pretty good. Listening on a PC with a decent headphone amp they sounded stunning. Playing a FLAC studio version of the Rolling Stones Grrr was a real experience as there was a lot of detail there that normal gets lost. I'm sure they will improve as the run in too.

They don't completely isolate you if you have no music playing but when you have something playing you don't really notice any sounds apart from what is playing. They don't appear to leak sound either so you won't annoy other people near you. I find them much easier to wear than other in ear headphones - they are not fiddly to get on and off. For the few hours I've been using them they have been amazingly comfortable.

They get my vote.
