3.0 out of 5 stars Good overall product with minor issues, 28 Oct. 2014
Performs well without the add on. So don't buy if you care about the trim length.
I have given 3 stars because
1. The add-on is useless
2. Hair gets pulled a bit when trimming opposite to direction of growth - although, it's not as uncomfortable as others have reported
3. Takes a bit of getting used to. The clippers are on side so it needs a bit of manoeuvring.
4. Despite what diagrams show, the plastic top does not seem to come off easily for cleaning. Must confess that I am not pulling hard as diagram is not clear and I'm not confident that I am pulling the right way.

Those were the cons. Pros are that once you get the hang of it, at £25, it's very light, gives good trimming and holds charge well.
I faced no rashes or scratches as some reviews indicate, only some tolerable pulling when used as stated above.

This is review just after a week. Hope the product lasts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect fit for iPad Air., 15 Oct. 2014
Very good product at the price.
Volume buttons are a bit fidgety and take getting used to.

Folds and acts as a stand as it is meant to.

Note that more expensive covers may look nicer, but at almost 20% of the price for similar Apple accessories, this is very much a bargain.... If it lasts at least a year; then I can switch to a different colour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, heavy tawa at the price, 2 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite heavy and good tawa. It appears completely flat, although I have a gas hob and only someone using the electric flat jobs can confirm the flatness with certainty.
I would've preferred slight curve though, as that is what I'm used to.

The handle looks cheap, but so is the price so I am not complaining. It may loosen over next few months but I hope tightening the visible screws should fix it.

It does not seem to have a non-stick coating just like traditional India tawas.

11' is perhaps good enough for a small dosa! Smaller ones are better as this does not heat very well along edges depending on job size.

Has not rusted in around a month's use

Prompt delivery.
Fits my Canon 24-105 f 1/4L USM lens well. No issues with threading - comes off easily as well.

Not much to say as the purpose is to protect the lens and it does so well.
There are no glares and the light comes through clearly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Endless character portrayals, 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Horns (Kindle Edition)
The concept appeared new and interesting. The story was built up well for first 100 pages or so.
Then the character portrayals began.
I fail to see the point behind spending so many pages on them; perhaps they are a filler as the author ran out of fuel.
I shall not recommend this book. 'Heart shaped box' is much better. NoS4R2 probably comes second.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got the product well in time.
The covers are of exact size as the display for my Canon EOS 5D III

I managed to fit the first one without any hassle and have 5 spares now.
The price can probably be lower, as with postage this is over £4

4.0 out of 5 stars Compact and useful, 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon Gadget Bag 300EG (Accessory)
Bought this bag for my Canon EOS 5D III with 24 - 105mm f 1/4 L USM lens.
First class delivery was quite prompt and I received the bag in 2 days.
I was surprised at size of the bag. It is quite small and certainly cannot contain multiple cameras and lenses as advertised; unless the cameras are point and shoot; lenses are small etc.

Having said that, the bag is compact, light weight and I can fit in my camera with attached lens,a spare battery, spare AAAs, a small 50mm f 1/1.8 prime lens, polariser and the smallest speedlight flash. No space for battery grip or a telephoto.
No obvious way to keep battery charger along with above, so I keep that out on photography trips.
I do not like to keep the lens detached as it increases probability of dust getting in and the bag meets this requirement.
The walls are quite padded so the camera is fairly protected.

The stitches on the padded 'walls' are not great - they started coming off as I experimented building compartments. Hence one star less than perfect score.
I have not adjusted the 'walls' after creating the compartments and they are holding fine.
Shoulder support is good and the straps hold well.
I went to Egypt and the camera was protected well against dust and water sprays on boat rides.

In short this is a great bag if you have same config as above or a smaller DSLR with two lenses at maximum. However if you plan to carry more equipment around, get a bigger bag.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent gloves for presses, 18 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I looked up for gloves that have exceptionally thick padding - especially in the lower thumb palm area. I press heavy and suffer from mildly painful joints hence this was the criteria. The gloves are very well padded and therefore great for bench, shoulder presses.
However, owing to finger padding (totally unnecessary)these gloves do not help with grips especially for pull ups, deadlifts etc. Straps are not elasticated, so they do not support the wrist a lot - so not very useful for heavy bicep curls. So be mindful that you may have to carry two pairs of gloves - this one for presses and another with elasticated strap and less padding for grip specific exercises.
4 stars because I got what I needed and RDX products are very tough and durable. 1 star reserved as this is not an all purpose glove.

This is the perfect knee support for my cycling and jogging workouts.
It is very comfortable, keeps the area warm and does not hinder at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like the product, 30 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I hurt my back slightly at gym lifting some heavy weights.
Ordered the belt immediately and received it within a day using express delivery.
It is a good product provided the elastic lasts.
What it does is keep the back warm - especially if used with any pain relieving ointment.
The extra belt is indispensable as that provides the support and the region one needs it

However, what is missing is a level of padding or cushion to allow for the back curvature near the lower back.
The belt compensates a bit but I used a folded cloth to get the feeling of support. I don't know if any product has that sort of padding.
It does not support the back a lot during bending or lifting, so for serious problems I don't believe it to be the right product.
It is a bit clumsy if you sit wearing it and also gets folds after few hours of use - this does not diminish its utility.

I'll recommend it only for addressing mild pain and essentially, to keep the back warm.
