5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Pumped!, 5 Nov 2014
Excellent Pump: just be aware that you need 16mm ID hose for it. Very good volume and pressure from the output. Would buy again!

1.0 out of 5 stars A Case for the Prosecution!, 5 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Blue colour is nothing like the advertisement: very washed out and murky. Very difficult to switch on and off due to the cut outs for the buttons being very poorly located. One to avoid!

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid at all costs!, 12 July 2014
Avoid this Steamer at all costs! Although Marketed as "Intelligent" it has a monstrous design flaw: When you Steam anything with a distinct flavour, the residue water is not contained, but contaminates the main reservoir which then has to be cleaned every time! This is not removeable from the main base and is therefore a real pain! All of my previous Steamers have kept this tainted water separate from the Main reservoir but this "Intelligent" one is too stupid to do this. I have just cooked Mussels in mine, and have a suspicion that my next few dishes of vegetables are going to both smell and taste like a Fishmongers Apron.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Concept, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having looked into several of this type of item, it seems that the usual downfall is that the pressure has to deviate a lot from the pre-set of the device before giving any indication. These ones differ in a major way by having no pre-set pressure: inflate the tyre to the correct pressure then put the device onto the valve (firmly) and it sets itself to that pressure as being it correct setting. Previous reviews have said that it will begin to indicate with a loss of around 2psi, which I cannot either verify or deny as they have not been in use long enough. The lack of a pre-set pressure seems a very sound approach and so far I am impressed. They will, of course, reset themselves if removed and then refitted so seem a very worthwhile buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally Worthless, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maybe I jumped to the wrong conclusion, but I rather thought that the point of this Headset would be to be able to both make and receive phone calls: It does, in fact, perform both of these duties, but I was rather hoping to have a two-way conversation during them, but Nokia seem to think otherwise and produce this item with virtually zero volume, even when set to maximum on the phone, as they also seem to think that a volume control on the Headset is not required either. A total waste of money: avoid at all costs (unless you get a lot of calls from people that you would rather not listen to, of course)

2.0 out of 5 stars A poor fit, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On the plus side, it is very easy to fit: on the minus side it feels as though it doesn't really grip the phone firmly enough around the edges: several times I have had to refit the edges after taking the phone from my pocket. If the phone is kept in a handbag or similar, it would possibly be ok, but if kept in a pocket I would look elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars A reassuring feel, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite this case not providing protection for the screen, it seems to be an excellent case. Easy to fit with it being in two parts, and it gives an excellent feel in the hand with no chance of it slipping out. It also feels very protective and substantial: very please with it and would recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A gentle journey, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A refreshing glimpse back into a much more gentile time, but still maintaining a very reasonable plot line. Good manners and a very relaxed lifestyle seem to be the norm here: people being concerned about paying the extra penny for an extended Underground journey, for example! The interest in the characters maintaining their correct behaviour tended to rather distract me from the plot a little but I found that that just added interest and enjoyment for me. Not a "Classic" by any means, but buy a ticket and enjoy the ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars I see through this company!, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought the item direct from the company and delivered exceeding quickly. Having used many Screen protectors in the past, this one is most certainly the best I have come across regarding the application. It seems to be actively opposed to air bubbles as it is applied, unlike others that seem to make it their main aim to trap some air. Too early to remark on the durability yet, but the Guarantee from the company seems very reassuring. It looks very impressive with a perfect finish. Buy one of these as opposed to the cheap alternatives.

2.0 out of 5 stars A suitable case for treatment, 16 Mar 2014
A rather good case: provides excellent protection and is easy to deal with when making calls. Sadly, the Magnetic Catch seems to be of very poor quality and has fallen apart again: this is my second of these cases to suffer the same fate. Also, I'm unimpressed with the fact that the case has to be opened while charging the phone: rather defeats the object of a protective case when it has to have the screen exposed to damage while it is on charge. I shall look elsewhere for it's replacement.
