Sony Universal Headband Mount for Sony Action Camera

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work with my bike helmet, 5 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a decent, well-made helmet that would work OK with say a snowboard helmet, but doesn't really work with my ventilated bike helmet (Specialized) as there's no way to stop the helmet tilting to one side. In the end I found that the best thing to do was put the camera on top of the helmet.

Also the straps drove me mad - a pair of basic velcro straps worked much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile upgrade: Highly recommended., 25 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've just installed this on my late-2008 MacBook Pro and it has made a dramatic difference to the speed and responsiveness.Together with upgrading the RAM from 4Gb to 8Gb I think I've added at least a couple of years to its life (barring a hardware failure of course).

If you're fitting in an MBP you will need a set of small torx screwdrivers and a small phillips driver.

I ordered mine from Amazon, and then found that it was being sent from Germany. It did get there within a week and on the day they said it would, but inevitably the delivery wasn't as speedy as it would have been from the UK.

Delivery was very quick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality cable at a reasonable price - but may not work everywhere, 1 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK it's Velox-branded not Apple OEM, but it's still a piece of quality kit. Compared with my UK cable the rubber isn't as soft, but the colour matches the charger perfectly. The price was very reasonable.

EDIT: it's worth noting that because the cable is made in Germany the prongs are thicker than those used in southern Europe. I've found in Italy that it won't work in many sockets. You can get an adapter from supermarkets that will help.


Master Lock 604EURD 40mm Resettable Brass Combination Padlock

5.0 out of 5 stars Chunky solid padlock, 10 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a solid chunky lock. Probably bigger and heavier than you need for a gym locker, but otherwise fine.

Mine came without instructions. I rang MasterLock UK and Nikki very quickly emailed the instructions to me. This is what you need to do: with the red line face of the lock in front of you and the zeros lined up, open the lock, turn the hasp a quarter turn away from you, and then push it in, and with it pushed in, reset to the new combination, release and away you go.

I know that's a fairly standard method, but not obvious if you only buy a padlock once in a blue moon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy customer, 9 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm always a bit nervous about buying batteries but these seem to be genuine Huawei-branded batteries and identical to the one that came with my MiFi (NB the photo shows another model battery).

Speedy delivery as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big capacity but heavy, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one of the 22400mAh powerpacks as an upgrade for a Tecknet 9000mAh power pack. This has almost two-and-a-half times the capacity but at the price of a bigger and heavier package (448g vs 248g). The power-to-weight ratio is better than the TeckNet, but even so it's probably worth considering whether you could get by with a smaller and lighter pack.

Plus points, apart from the capacity, are that it has two outlets (one 2.1A and one 1.1A) and you don't need a dedicated charger. It seems to be a neat well-made and solid package. I can't comment on the long-term life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Identical to tools costing twice the price, 6 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I saw the exact same tool selling in a well-known bike shop for twice the price. This is a solidly made piece of kit and should last a lifetime. Very easy to use. Every toolbox should have one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality well worth the money (and good technical support), 6 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using Wacom tablets for years because of discomfort from repetitive mouse-clicking. I find the tablets much more comfortable to use than a mouse.

I upgraded to this from the old style Wacom tablets and I was impressed by the build quality (an nice brushed aluminium casing and matt black plastic bits) and the size of the working area. My only criticism is that the amount of packaging it came in was ludicrous.

I had a problem due to a conflict with the old driver software. The technical support call was answered quickly and the tech support guy was very helpful (and there was no expensive 0845 number).

There is a newer version of the driver software available from the Wacom website. ( us.wacom.com/en/support/drivers/ )

(A quick heads-up for anyone who has a similar problem on a Mac: you need to go into the Wacom Tablet folder in Applications and open up the Wacom Tablet Utility and use it to delete the existing user preferences. If that doesn't work you then need to use it remove the tablet software, then reboot and reinstall the driver software and then reboot again before connecting the tablet).

5.0 out of 5 stars A good-quality contour map that covers a wide area, 7 April 2014
This would be good choice for cycle tourers as this is a contour map which still covers a large area. The sample illustrations provided by Amazon here are *very* poor quality - the maps are much better than the illustrations here suggest.
