CateckŪ Premium 4 Port Aluminum USB Hub with 11 in&hellip by Cateck
4.0 out of 5 stars USB 2 times 4..., 1 Sep 2014
The Cateck 4-Port USB-2 hub certainly looks the part sat next to an Apple iMac or MacBook. The top plate is metal and a reasonable match for the aluminium used in Apple products, it's actually a bit too 'sparkly' to be an exact match but it's close enough. In use it couldn't be simpler, just plug and play and all your USB devices connect to your Mac as you'd expect them to. The build quality is fine, it's nicely finished and the cable is just long enough to connect to the rear ports of an iMac and allow the hub to be placed on the left side of the computer.

It's quite lightweight so if you connect long heavy USB cables it does tend to get tipped over by the weight, but for USB… Read more
Satechi RideMate Bike Mount for iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, &hellip Satechi
5.0 out of 5 stars A smarter bike..., 1 Sep 2014
Although I always liked the idea of fixing my smartphone to my bike, the reality of doing it is a bit scary - the last thing I'd want to see is my iPhone leaping to its untimely death from my handlebars. The RideMate Waterproof Bike Mount seems better than most mounts, it's made from thick but pliable plastic with wide welded seams around the edge that don't look like they'd be liable to split, unlike many others. With your smartphone inside the pouch is sealed with a push-lock seal, like a very heavy-duty freezer bag, and then the flap folds over and is secured with a velcro strip. I filled mine with tissues and tested it out at the the kitchen sink and it didn't leak a single drop, so I… Read more
Brabantia 30 Litre Laundry Bin with White Body/ Pl&hellip by Brabantia

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
In the past, if I was choosing a Brabantia Laundry Bin from pictures on a website I'd probably have chosen one of the stainless steel versions, but now I've got the white version I think I prefer it. The steel ones are more of a statement in a room, but who wants to turn a laundry bin into a feature? This white version seems to step into the background more (this will depend on your decor of course) and yet still look neat and expensive. The construction and finish is good, with quite a heavy weight of metal and solid-feeling plastic lid and base. I'm not sure if the ventilation holes round the bottom would do very much but they look good. The liner bag is well-made with a clever rubberised… Read more
