Belkin 17" Laptop Messenger Bag in Black and Red by Belkin

5.0 out of 5 stars Best laptop bag ever, 26 May 2012
I go through so many everyday bags and laptop bags to find the one that is just right, at a good price and perfectly practical but still looks decent, and this is that bag.

To address to size issue first, I use a 16.4" laptop with it and the fit is pretty snug, not tight. I can understand how a 17" probably is pretty tight and with it you could fit a charger and maybe a couple of very small accessories at best.

Still, pockets and padding are all the right place, there is a shoulder strap or a handle, both of which look and feel strong (although perhaps could be slightly more comfortable), but in storage both can be tucked away and are unobtrusive. The shoulder strap in… Read more
Konig Heavy Duty Professional Video Camera Tripod &hellip by Konig
Overall, this possibly the best value video tripod I've ever seen. It looks, feels and is sturdy. The head pans pretty smoothly (could be a little better but probably at some cost). Everything is pretty well thought out.

The one single problem- the leg ties (to prevent the legs from moving too far from a triangular arrangement) come undone very, very easily. All 3 went within a week or two, having been used twice in the time. Not great. However, the only part that went could be replace by string, a cable tie or similar. Not ideal, but I've had no problems since.
PK OF 4 PLASTIC CD BOXES by Wham
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
We're using these for Blu-Ray archiving, for which they are ideal! Very strong as far as plastic boxes go, just the right size, secure lid and perfect stacking.

Only reservations is that a typical CD jewel case will only fit in properly spine up, and also a sticker on the side won't come off properly, but these haven't been a big issue for us so still 5 stars!

Brilliant value!
