4.0 out of 5 stars very comfortable, wife loves it, but not so long lasting as a cotton garment, 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These T-shirt type material nightshirts are very comfortable and my wife loves them because they are so soft to the touch.
However they are no way near so long lasting as the ordinary cotton alternatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish discreetee range of light fittings, 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought 3 off 5-light strips and 2 off of these single units for our new (enlarged) kitchen.
Very pleased with them all. They are ideal for anyone looking for tastefully discreet fittings for GU10 bulbs.
although they come with traditional bulbs, I have fitted LEDs.
Note in general for any bulbs - make sure the bulb surround is silver-coloured. I bought some which although excellent lights, had a white outer surface and don't look correct !

5.0 out of 5 stars exactly what i needed, 18 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Will use this to power & charge my GoPro (mini usb) when travelling.

Always travel with the small light usb MICRO mains plug charger which came with my Blackberry (it has 4 different country pin types with it). use it to charge Nexus10 tablet too.

Had needed a separate brick for the GoPro, now i wont !

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not her best book, 13 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having very much enjoyed the previous 2 Flanders' books I have bought, this was a huge disapointment.
I came at it purely from the perspective of Victorian social history, I have no interest in Dickens - from this perspective it fails. Too long, rambles around and contains too many author-asides. This in mark contrast to the learned style of The House for instance.
Perhaps Dickens fans will enjoy it ? Sadly I didn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent in every way, for the cost (£10.47) - outstanding, 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazingly well made. Very flexible design allows a vast range of shots not available if hand-held.
I have used it extensively with my GoPro whilst travelling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, reasonable quality, 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a camera suction mount sold with a GoPro tripod adaptor. So the base unit tightening knobs are not GoPro style whereas the tripod adaptor does have the usual long GoPro type.
The actual suction pad and mechanism are of excellent design & build.
The forwards/back tilt mechanism is perfect whereas unfortunately the side to side seems less robust.

Overall excellent value, and perfectly adequate quality. Don't worry, it won't embarrass your GoPro to be mounted on it !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone said it suited me !!!, 20 Dec. 2013

Surprisingly well made for cost. Looks good on. I was wearing white-tie, plus this for a laugh. It worked.
Good enough to use several times I would guess, just replace the sticky tape ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb quality but slightly too big, 20 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I find I am taking it to meetings almost as a briefcase, papers also in its side pocket (like we all used to do with our bulging Filofax / TimeSystems !)
It is very nicely made, good quality zips, very presentable.
Confident to travel with the tablet in it in a suitcase or rucksack.

However the size is really designed for 4 x 3 screen (square'ish) tablets (Apple ?) rather than 16 x 9 widescreen models. Thus a Nexus 10 fits perfectly length wise, but the case is 4 - 5 cm too tall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent IF you really need Cat 6, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These Cat 6 cables are excellent quality at a remarkably good price.

BUT I wonder just how many people really need them ? You need to have some very esoteric hardware to make a Cat 5e cable the limiting factor, transfer speed wise.
So to all the people complaining that they are too thick/fat/non-flexible, I would suggest they search Wikipedia etc for "Cat 5e" "Cat 6" etc. A thinner Cat5e cable will probably do, especially for <5m lengths.

But for those who do need them, highly recommended !
