3.0 out of 5 stars Does the Job, 3 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The does the job I need it to do. It alleviates IT Band pain. However, I just don't find it comfortable to wear. I think I need to find something better for me.

I won't rate it lower, because I suspect it will be more comfortable for other users. I have slim legs and the support has to be fastened very tight to stay where I need it to be, but those with thicker legs may get on better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prevention is Better Than Cure, 3 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having had an achilles injury, and suffered from the extended recovery time, I wanted to ensure I could get back running - I had a duathlon coming up and very little training time left - with a degree of confidence. On the recommendation of my physio I bought this product. Prior to using the support I'd done some light training which always resulted in a bit of inflamation. The difference with the support in place was significant; there was still some swelling bit a lot less.

Four weeks later I completed my duathlon, a bike ride and, significantly, a 10 mile run on the West Highland Way which is rough and hilly in places. I won't say I wasn't sore afterwards...


CamRepublic®--Leather Camera Case for Fujifilm FUJI Finepix XE1 X-E1 (brown)
CamRepublic®--Leather Camera Case for Fujifilm FUJI Finepix XE1 X-E1 (brown)
Offered by CamRepublic
Price: £19.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value Great Quality, 3 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having swithered over getting the official Fujifilm half case at what seemed an exhorbitant price I kept looking to see if there was a viable, quality alternative. This seemed to be what I was looking for, but I was a bit nervous. It wasn't obvious where CamRepublic was based and the delivery lead time was significant. But it was Amazon, so I had a certain amount of comfort in completing the transaction.
So, after a couple of weeks wait the case arrived. On immediate inspection it appeared to be well made and nicely finished. I inserted my X-E1. The fit is good. Maybe not a s good as the official case, but without being able to make the comparison I don't know for certain. What I am certain of, is it is more than good enough.
I've not had the case long enough to see how it will stand up to continued use, but so far I am very happy with this product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good; but contrived, 8 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Much like The Devotion of Suspect X this makes for an enjoyable read. Certainly, I found myself trying to pick the book up at any spare moment, quickly reading from beginning to end. I wouldn't go so far as to say I was gripped. There are other crime novels which fit that term better. Not that I can say knowing the killer from the outset is the reason for the novel lacking intensity. The twists and turns of the investigation keep the interest high.

No, there are two elements which take this novel away from warranting glowing praise. The first of these - and I concede there may be cultural reasons - was my inability to identify with the characters. None of them possess much depth and inhabit the realm of cliche entirely. The biggest drawback, though, the resolution of how the crime was committed brought to mind just one thought; that was very contrived.

If you know you'll enjoy the process of deduction you'll enjoy this book, even with the implausibility of the method of committing the crime. Coupled with the pleasure - the mild amusement - I had in the formality of the character interactions made this enjoyable nonetheless.


200 x Caffe Prima Continental ESE COFFEE PODS
200 x Caffe Prima Continental ESE COFFEE PODS
Offered by Garraways
Price: £34.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Slight delay, but happy customer, 30 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered these coffee pods again because I was satisfied with my previous experience; the quality of the product and the speed of delivery. I was confident. So much so I upped the quantity. Doubled it. 100 was just not enough. So I ordered 200 this time.

Only 100 arrived. Oh dear, was I wrong to be so confident? No, after checking with garraways, 100 number two arrived. No need to be concerned.

And this is goo-oo-ood coffee. A breakfast double espresso sets me up to face every day.

4.0 out of 5 stars App-tastic, 23 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Never had a smartphone before, just a mid-range Nokia, so not much to compare against. Now I do I wonder why it took me so long.

OK, so the big rivalry is between Apple and Android - I don't think Windows mobile is big enough in the market to count at the moment. Is Android, or this particular Android phone better than an iPhone. Dunno. Probably not. But at the price point you can get this phone, for me it wins hands-down.

I am also very averse to Apple's closed-shop approach. iTunes is rubbish, but I'd have to use it. Oh, I know the counter arguement that the very fact of Google's openness is risky. The Android Market is notoriously full of malicious software. It is a factor that you should consider. That said, Steve Jobs has become everything he slated Bill Gates for, so he's not getting my pennies.

Apps-wise I'm delighted with what I've got so far. In particular my Lightsaber effect. (You can get this for iPhone too, so this is not an Android advantage.)

The old Nokia I used had Ovi Maps which was very good considering it was free. I now use NDrive which I thoroughly recommend despite have to raid the electronic piggy bank to make a purchase.

I would recommend this phone as a budget way into Smartphoneland.

4.0 out of 5 stars Know what you are buying, 16 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well designed case from a shock resisting perspective. However, that does tend to make it bulky. As for it being described as waterproof; the material from which it's made will definitely keep the rain off. It is NOT a sealed case, so any immersion will allow water at your camcorder.

The material it's made from is quite cheap so it's not very aesthetically pleasing.

If you want additional peace of mind that your precious device will gain some (fairly) good protection from bumps and scrapes, and if you expect rain shower protection this will serve you well. If you want to take your camcorder into a very watery environment, don;t buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it's supposed to..., 16 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As the title says, this item does what it's supposed to do. Specifically bought to hold the recorded data from my new HD camcorder the Class 6 write speed means there have been no performance issues. The memory size means I get plenty of footage.

SDHC cards often seem to suffer reliability issues. Is this card reliable? Too soon to tell, but if it fails during my big trip to Alaska next month it'll be a five star product no more!
