Krusell Orbit Flex Case for HTC Sensation - Black by Krusell
The affective element.
I am thoroughly disappointed with this case. Having purchased Krusell products in the past, I was expecting something, not outstanding, but fairly decent to keep my phone safe. As soon as I took this out of the box, my heart actually sank. Honestly. Here's why.

The factual element. (See my product photos.)
The leather - if indeed it is leather - feels very thin and poor quality. I've had comparable quality from a 2.99 market stall phone case.
The back of the case (which is a thin sheet of card covered by this 'leather' substance) was curved, and the case as a whole had a rather squashed look to it. There are supposed to be two slots inside… Read more

SanDisk  Ultra II SD Plus 4GB 15MBS by SanDisk

I have several of these Sandisk SD-plus cards (a few 1GB, 8GB, and now the 4GB version), and they are excellent. The build quality is very good - no danger of them breaking at the hinge when using them as USB drives (I've been using them as such for at least a year and they're still fine). And they are very reliable cards.

My only problem is with the recently purchased 4GB version. This is the first time one of these cards has malfunctioned, frequently appearing via two of my three USB ports as having 0 byes when it's clearly a 4GB card with over 1GB of files (if anyone knows of a reason my computer may be at fault here, do let me know!).
