I used this to peice together my Nexus 7 (2012) after the touch screen exploded. It was easy to stick on and best of all, it was very easy to get the white backing off from the other side.

I'm not sure the length of the actual tape but I'd estimate I could probably replace my screen another 20 times and still have plenty left over.

I just love this coffee. It's absolutely wonderful. Good flavor, not bitter, too sweet or sour, smells wonderful.

I sometimes use it with just milk, sometimes add cardamon and sometimes add sugar. Either combination works wonderfully.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its a light and its OK, 11 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a cheaply built product but it does what it says. The lights are double hinged so you can make them higher and point them either to the top or bottom of the kindle.

The only thing is, the lighting is quite bright it and is a little harsh on the eyes when its the only thing on in the room. It would have been nice to be able to adjust the brightness but for the price it does it well.

It's not too heavy either but is quite quite bulky in terms of volume.

It does what it says on the tin but had to throw mine out after about 2 months - the print wore off in the wash giving me nothing but a shot glass.

I use this a few times a day and couldn't now be without one. Works perfectly with my coffee delivery fresh from Pact.

4.0 out of 5 stars I have it connected to my Windows Phone perfectly and the FitBit syncs fine but the app itself needs some work, 26 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this and it arrived quickly. The FitBit itself is OK.

I've found some times when interacting with it (like entering sleep mode) it doesn't always register the taps but you wait a few seconds and restart and it works again. I'm getting 4 - 5 days battery life from the device which I'm impressed with. I haven't ever worn a watch or band or anything so was skeptical that it might irritate me but after a few days I've forgotten I am wearing it.

There are certain scenarios where you are doing something (like chopping onions), the FitiBit will register the vibrations as taps and start vibrating/blinking its lights at you.

I have it connected to my Windows Phone perfectly and the FitBit syncs fine but the app itself needs some work.

1) It would have been good to have it autosync - currently it doesn't seem to sync automatically
2) The food database is utterly useless. There is no specific UK database so it selects the US database and that is just no use so its difficult to track accurate calorific input.
3) There are no reminders. It doesn't alert me to say "You haven't logged anything yet today". This device requires a change in habit, so a reminder to log things like water intake would be useful.
4) The activity tracker is very generic. You can't enter a deadlift with X sets and Y reps but you enter "1 hour of lifting weights". Would be usefull to use it as an actual workout diary

TL;DR: Good device, comfortable to wear - App needs some improvements to make the experience better.

4.0 out of 5 stars perfect and easy to read display, 26 Aug 2014

Does the job but the valve connector needs to go on in a particular and very accurate way or the head ends up pressing the value and letting the air out, other than that, perfect and easy to read display.

It works as expected, the gauge can be a little difficult to read (they spiral around the cylinder)

4.0 out of 5 stars A pain to clean, 27 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a pain to clean but works well for me, the 2 clear plastic segments are a little loose now but holds together still and works perfectly.

It's quite easy to catch yourself with it and the blades are razor sharp. Can get a little uncomfortable with a lot of use but does the job.
