Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought it as a "cheap cue" that was better than those came bundled free with our ex-pub office table.
Initially great, but rubber bung in base managed to come off within a week (not a big deal) - but then shortly afterwards the cue started "misbehaving" strange clacking noise when cueing with some slightly erratic balls following. As far as I can work out, something has split internally. Never even imagined a cue could break before I used this one. Spent a bit more for on www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00J2L12UK and much happier.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great cue - horrifically bad tip., 23 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to replace a very cheap cue, as a merely "cheap" cue.
Orders of magnitude better, with a love weight to it.
Only issue - as large number of reviews have pointed out, is the tip is rock-solid and pretty much unusable.
Maybe these reviews have undersold this problem - it's "unusable" as it comes. Not a massive problem, on general recommendation, I picked up some "elkmaster" (https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B001USKR3Q) tips, and it's now great - just don't think you can get away without them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works really well (bit I was concerned about before buying) - but actually "does't look that bad" as a great bonus., 23 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My "twist the knob and the plug comes up" bath packed up - and is built in, so short of re-tiling, or taking down the ceiling below, wasn't going to get fixed.
Hoped the internet could give me a solution, and it did with this nifty little gizmo.
It's a metal disc that fits roughly over the plug-hole, surrounded by a silicon skirt that uses the water pressure above to maintain a seal. Knobble at the top, has a small sucker on the back that you can use to stick it to the side of your bath and also give you a raised bit to pull at when you want to drain the bath.
Works really well (bit I was concerned about before buying) - but actually "does't look that bad" as a great bonus.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap glove - but feels cheap., 15 Jun. 2015

Just bought on a whim due to the low cost. Can't even fit my hand into it.
If you've got small mitts, give it a go - but anything average or larger, don't bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars My first glass protector - and I'm not going back., 15 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Always used a variety of film ones before, from original Zaggs, through to Rhinoshield - but always end up looking a bit messy after a month or so.
This gives you something that's like, and stays like, your original screen.
Can't comment on the long term protection, as not dropped it on the screen yet - but day to day, much more pleasant - and an awful lot cheaper.
This particular glass comes in nice package with everything you need to remove dust and grime before fitting. Alcohol swipe for grease, micro-fibre to polish, and sticker to remove any dust that happens to drift on.
So happy with the perfect fitting I got from this, I bought one for my wife's phone (my old M7) - and again was a pleasure to fit, and gave perfect result.
Another plus point with the rigid glass, over flexible film, is that it doesn't 'buckle' when you put it in a case.
My Tech21 case used to push into the edge of my Rhino-shield, the film would get disturbed and I'd get air-pockets on the sides. Not a major deal, but a bit annoying. This glass is rigid, so case just comes to rest over it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best version of 'Cardboard' I've tried, 31 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Best version of 'Cardboard' I've tried.
Not perfect though.
Lenses were held in with 'something tacky' and kept on falling out until they were properly glued.
I appear to have a big nose, as seems to dig in a bit when using them.
No cut for headphone jack access.
Had to add new NFC for my HTC One M8, and still can't get the magnet working (not that the phone is officially fully supported).

Don't want to sound negative (putting aside everything above). Cardboard is a bit of fun, and you're going to have to accept a bit of tinkering whatever solution you come up with.
At least with these foam ones, you're starting with something better to take a knife to.

Nice feature is that it comes with a set of foam strips you can use to pad out the edges of the slot. Means you can easily customize it to exactly the size of your phone (and importantly keep it centred).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 31 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My first "BVC" coils in my Nautilus and a definite improvement over [whatever the non-BVC ones were called] and they're a simple screw-in replacement.
No issues. Seem to last much longer than old type. Security code verifies.
Couldn't ask for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars and was thinking a nice mustard colour would suit, 31 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They're laces. They're well made. They're *VERY* Yellow.
I'd bought these for some suede DM shoes, and was thinking a nice mustard colour would suit. They're not mustard.
I'm in my late thirties and walking around with day-glo laces.
I'm growing to love this, slightly more than I should, but just thought I'd mention it to others.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent.
Needed some more CDRs (I have genuinely no idea when I bought the last spindle) - and decided to go wild and buy some premium ones.
OK, not *very* wild, as they're still dirt cheap - but had just discovered that the budget CDRs I'd bought 15 years ago had dismembered themselves into a pile of clear plastic disks and piles of gold foil flakes, whilst my older Verbatims were still pristine.
Can't speak of the quality of this batch for another decade or so, but feel lovely and sturdy, and as I seem to remember was the thing to say, "no coasters"

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfect. No issues as reported by others - charge as well as old cables, nicely looking (dare I say attractive), seem well built - and I now it's an absolute joy to have some ridiculously long cables.
Annoyances they may solve - hotel rooms without sockets by the bed when you're using your phone as an alarm, when your wife insists on using all the sockets by the sofa, stretching to the only working USB socket on the entire plane (3 rows ahead of you) etc.
Wouldn't say they've changed my life, but certainly given me a few satisfied moment.
