Corsair Voyager Mini 32GB USB 3.0 Key Ring Size Flash Drive - Brushed Aluminium
Corsair Voyager Mini 32GB USB 3.0 Key Ring Size Flash Drive - Brushed Aluminium
Price: £14.25

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality Memory Key, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have so many (smaller capacity) USB keys taking up space in drawers, I decided I'd spring for the 32gb in an attempt to future-proof. THe additional space is working out fine, and it's more than enough to carry plenty of music and moives around on the go. The build is good, an all metal body houses the memory, and it attaches to a keyring with a rubber gromit. Read/Write speeds are lower than I anticipted (even with single large files), even connected to a dedicated USB 3 port on several computers, and while it would be nice to be faster it hasn't bothered me too much.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lifesaver for removing stubborn nuts., 15 July 2014

A must-have accessory to replace the completely useless wheel brace that comes in your spare tire. One of these things that you might never have yo use, but when you (inevitably) do, you are so glad you have it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend, use it all the time, and £10 cheaper (£21) than when I bought it., 15 July 2014

Great little speaker for this price point. Build is good. Sound is fine (a little tinny, but you knew that!) Battery life is very impressive. It has not yet run down on me as of yet. I've actually started to bring this everywhere this summer. It;s so small you can throw it into a backpack or your pocket. BT range isn;t great, but accepetable for a battery-powered speaker. Everyone who sees it asks about it and are impressed with the sound and volume it produces.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uncomfortable and range-challenged headphones., 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nah, these were a bad buy. Uncomfortable around the back of your neck and bob around as you try to work or jog. As they are on a fixed band, they don't really sit comfortably in your ears either. Also they are rather heavy. Into the drawer with them, never to be seen again.

That said, if I was just sitting down, and my tv had BT, and I wanted to watch something at night, and I wasn;t too far away form the source, I could imagine these might be ok.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine, but could do without the day/night function, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these for inside of a larder/pantry. They generally do the job well, but I would rather they just came on when they detected movement rather than deciding whether it is day or night.

This leads to a situation during the day when the light detector thinks it is bright enough and decides not to switch on upon opening the cupboard door - and there is nothing you can do to make it switch on.....waving your hand in front of the sensor does nothing, as the light unit itself is happy with the amount of light and is overruling your desire for more light. As you stand in exasperation, your eyes adjust and you find the packet of super noodles you were looking for. As you shut the pantry door, the light mocks you by switching on just before it closes.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bag holder., 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does the job. Open at the back, it uses whatever you mount it to as a backplate. A little bit flimsy and is made of a very thin coat of meatal over plastic, but once secured it seems sturdy enough for the job of holding plastic bags, which it does well. Holds about 20 or so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little bike, well built and good looks., 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Highly recommend this bike for looks, build quality and weight (or lack of it)

Bought for my 2 year old son, he instantly loved it, and was bombing around in no time. I was surprised as how instinctive it was for him, I wasn't needed at all as he took off down the road. By far his favourite toy, and he is very proud of it.

I was looking at other balance bikes, but sprung a bit extra for this one as the other all seemed much heavier. This does come in handy, as I can frequently end up carrying it on the return leg of a journey! I'm not joking when I say I soetimes forget I have it in my hand, it is so light.

Finally, this can be used up to 5 years old so you can get a few years out of it. That said, I can see he is miles ahead of his older sister (who has a normal bike with stabilisers) and will have moved onto a real bike soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money and decent sound., 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Every now and again, you find something on Amazon, read the reviews, wonder if it is too good to be true, and lives up to the expectation! I bought this primarily to use as a Bluetooth speaker. I also have a Creative D200 and the sound quality is comparible at 1/3 the price. I can also use aux in to connect ot my desktop pc and can switch easily between the sources with the touch of a button. The FM radio is a bonus, andI have to admit I cannot comment with authority as I rarely use it.

Build quality seems good, the unit seems sturdy and must be plugged into mains as there is no battery. A minor gripe would be the power button on the back in an awkward place, no headphone jack, and the volume buttons could be more prominant - I still have to feel around/stand up to look for them. No volume mute button either. Would also like it not to display SE 50 on the front whenever it is connected to BT or Aux sources, but for the money it is well worth it.

This does exactly what it says it does, but 10 individually wrapped sachets each containing 1 wipe....what was I thinking?
