5.0 out of 5 stars Useful computer mat, 29 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very useful, and ideally sized, for a computer mat. Effectively stops vibration from my computer, which could previously be heard in the room below. The dimensions are 12" by 24".

1.0 out of 5 stars Every file is bent, 5 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The files look fine packed in the box, but when you clip the front of the file into the ring binders it pushes the cover down so the files won't stand up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality at a premium price, 1 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good quality and obviously a perfect fit for the NEX 7. You've just spent a grand on a brilliant camera, and this will provide perfect protection for it for years.

The case is in two parts - a body case attached by a screw fitting to the tripod adaptor, and a top case to cover the lens and body, that buttons on to the body case.

The body case alone is nice to have and looks good, but does slightly get in the way of tilting the screen down.

This style of case keeps either side of the camera accessible for a neck strap - you'll most likely want to replace the poor quality one that comes with the NEX 7, either with Sony's premium leather strap or a third-party strap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well put together, if rather expensive, 25 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Evoluent vertical mouse is better than the competition, if rather expensive.

I use two mice, left and right handed, and have replaced both with Evoluent mice - recommended if working long hours, to allow each hand to rest. They are comfortable for extended use, providing a good hand position.

Including a hardware button to change mouse sensitivity is handy, and this works independently in the case of two mice, so one can be used for more precision if required.

The right-handed version works on a range of surfaces, while the left-handed mouse seems limited to felt-like mouse pads.

Poor placement of the additional buttons, which by default are set as back and forward buttons, can be a little annoying, as they are easily knocked when reaching for the mouse, but can be disabled.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well thought out, but quite expensive, 25 May 2012

Not stated is that the left handed version requires a felt-like mouse pad surface, while the right handed version works on any surface -- I see no reason for this, except perhaps that the left handed version is made using cheaper parts, as it won't be as popular.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality, well thought out, 23 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent alarm clock with very well thought out features. A very clean interface and smart styling.

Easy to set several alarms, and each can include a specified volume which is very handy. Alarms can be set everyday, week days, weekends and specific dates.

The radio quality is very good, and stations were picked up straight out of the box.

As mentioned in another review, the body of the clock tilts back slightly so you can't see the buttons on the top when laying down, but not often a problem, and the common buttons are easily remembered.

1.0 out of 5 stars Slow, not as described, 23 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The rolling mechanism is so slow, I can pick it up and switch it off without even getting up - it sometimes rolls over once, but it never makes it off the bedside table. Could be placed further away, but then so could any alarm clock.

"Jumps from your nightstand ... Rolls around room randomly"?

Sadly, the main selling point of this clock is just not as described.
