1.0 out of 5 stars Failed within one day of arriving :-(, 16 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Failed within one day of arriving (stuck at Apple logo when we went to turn it on from standby) - Tried to recover from iTunes as this was an achievement reward for my eldest (many, many, many tears because it wouldn't work :-() but it failed with unknown error so returned for full refund (which was given OK without quibble). Note this one had different model suffix from normal UK one.
Bought replacement from local Apple registered partner for ~£76 more, but the Apple/Partner supplied units have two years warranty, whereas the Amazon ones have only one. "you pay's your money and takes your choice...". I will now think twice about buying Apple products from non-Apple approved resellers.
Amazon 100% for fast dispatch and fast refund - vendor 0% for faulty unit

Great bit of kit - use it in the car with my Sony Z1 and it sounds fantastic as both devices have APTX

5.0 out of 5 stars Xoom (Mk1) Speaker Dock, 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK - it's the official Motorola speaker dock, but at a lot less than current UK retail price! Also note that duty is pre-paid by the seller, so there's no unexpected import bill to follow - good news all round.
Two things to point out: 1) It comes with two inserts - one for use with a rubberised cover, the other for the bare Xoom. None of the reviews I read on the dock mentioned this - in fact they bemoaned the lack of additional inserts. 2) You will need to source a UK lead with a 'clover leaf' end for the PSU as it comes with a USA type plug. I already had one from an old laptop PSU.
Delivery was quick considering it's shipped from the USA, and it was well wrapped in a bubble-wrap bag. The seller also kept me up to date with the order status.
All in all very pleased with the purchase and highly recommend the seller :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Case-mate barely there - Samsung Galaxy S, 14 April 2011
Excellent bit of kit - just what I was after. Nice cut-outs around the controls which make them easy to get to, but shrouded enough so as they don't get pressed while in your pocket etc. As the case is so slim, I was even able to make the car mount fit with a little heating and bending!
I found the Galaxy S to be too slippery as standard, and this case has solved that isssue for me. So a five star rating for a well designed product.
