3.0 out of 5 stars Fast and easy to set up on an iPhone (ios 6 as ..., 11 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fast and easy to set up on an iPhone (ios 6 as I haven't updated to 7) so you can view your home on your phone when out.
Good quality image, You can capture images or stills from your phone/device. The sound (optional) seemed very garbled. This is obviously not an alarm, just an additional potentially useful device to complement home security. If you want to have cloud capture, alerts etc. you will need to pay for it but this is certainly useful in conjunction with a monitored alarm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Snuggly and functional, 23 Jan 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Yes, look after your little Kindle! Keep it cosy in this snug sleeve! Actually, it makes a change from some rubberised/alumininim tech look case and it won't scratch anything in your bag which is a definite plus. I haven't tried dropping the Kindle in it to test its impact absorption, thought I'd pass on that test. Could be cheaper...


Gor Pets Elan Cat Bed, Medium, Divani Black

1.0 out of 5 stars Different from picture and squashed, 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has a towelling appearance and arrived squashed in a bag. The top doesn't stay up and it is not attractive. However, my cat does like it though he sometimes sleeps on top of it as it has flattened. Pretty ugly but it serves its purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good performance, good price, 13 Nov 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These produce a very bright light and last. Better than more expensive brands and I will be buying other sizes.


Varta 4W LED Camping Lantern
Varta 4W LED Camping Lantern
Price: 24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultra useful lantern, 4 Oct 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This has been hard to find since I received it. It does not have 'Find My Lantern' capability, unfortunately. Everyone has been taking it. For evening BBQs, sleepovers, general 'just need it' etc. Good to boost those nightmarish eco bulbs that barely light a room - nothing like the 'camping' look to impress... Comes with a dual size s-hook as well as a built-in hook on the base to hang it from the bottom. Ultra-bright light. Press button again for dimmer light and for 3 seconds for strobe light (if you can take it...) For design perfection, I would have liked a sliding/flip open piece on the top to allow some light upwards if wanted and I don't know why some mountaineering rope wasn't thrown in as well so you could dangle it off a precipice for a night climb. Sturdy with a grippy base, but reasonably heavy. Green LED 'finder' light flashes approx every 3 seconds. The handle is removable if you want to hook it through something - or use a carabiner but bear in mind that it is not that light so hang it where it won't cause a headache should it fall. Takes 3 of these batteries: Varta Longlife Extra D Alkaline 1.5 Volt Batteries - 4-Pack or of course, any D size.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seems to be big for the size, 1 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These look fine and have a decent sole but I will be returning them for a smaller size because they were too big. Perhaps order a size down, particularly if you are in between sizes. However, you can tighten them with the drawstring, which helps if you have narrow feet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Smart cover, 19 Aug 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This looks smart and it protects an iPad well, with the sides covered too and access to all ports, switches etc. It is a hard case so I don't know what shock absorbency there would be if it was dropped (not going to test it either!). The stand works well and there is a range of viewing angles. The hinge does seem fairly flimsy but all seems well so far. This plus a foam sleeve would be ideal for a cautious traveller.

2.0 out of 5 stars Adequate cover but nothing special, 19 Aug 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is reasonably well-padded from a shock-absorbing point of view, although the sides of your iPad are recessed in the case but not covered. The on/off switch is partially covered by one of the corner bumpers. Stand function is adequate but not the most secure. I felt that the 2 elastic strips to hold the front and back cover together were not really secure enough as they are quite near the edge so if you buy one use the thicker elastic band on the inside cover as well. Magnetic function turns the screen on and off as you open/close it. Expensive for the functionality of it and note that it is less than $43 on Amazon.com at the time of writing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Feeble catch, should come with spare ones, 19 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's solid, looks ok. BUT the small blue plastic latch to keep the lid shut bent and kept falling off into the bin. Having rifled through the bin contents to retrieve it several times, I gave up and it could well be languishing on a landfill site somewhere. Needless to say, the bin doesn't shut at all now and I've only had it a few weeks. I have ordered one at no cost from the Brabantia web site but it should really already come with 10 spare ones.

2.0 out of 5 stars How much?, 12 July 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is amazingly expensive for what you get. It does work; an iPhone 4 plugs in and all the buttons work as they should.
It doesn't fasten at the front so you can choose to have it fitting tightly or flapping about if you are jogging. If you are slim you can always tie the excess strap length together at the front. Pro - you are able to hear sounds around you as well. Con - you draw attention to yourself. In a big way, unless you like your music low. The sound is a little muffled but is not too bad. Hope everyone likes your music...
