1.0 out of 5 stars Useless Rubbish, 5 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've used this design of memory-sticks in the past, but Kingston now appear to have made some design changes that make them utterly useless:

1. Speed - this is by far the slowest memory stick I've used, and is slower than a 2gb version of the same model that I got several years ago.

2. Non-Standard - this is not a standard USB memory stick: windows detects it as some kind of optical drive, not a USB memory stick; it cannot be repartitioned, even using MacOS or Linux & it cannot be used as a boot drive.

Based on these unadvertised and undesirable product changes - I will certainly not be either buying, or recommending any of their products again.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These matches have brittle sticks that break when you attempt to strike them, are hard to light, and once lit burn very fast, and quite cold, they are also easy to blow out (and thus not windproof), and are not waterproof as stated.
In addition the plastic tub they come in is also not waterproof.
They are simply not worth buying.

Braided cord exactly as described, and good enough for what I wanted to use it for.
I would buy it again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These gloves are a good fit, and are comfortable, but are not particularly warm or windproof, and not at all waterproof until treated with scotchguard.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are made of thin and cheap 'wool' and are not very warm, and have a fiddly button to hold the mitten flap back, which I simply can't use with cold hands, instead of the more traditional velcro patch.
I wouldn't buy them again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Much darker than the picture., 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This braided cord was much darker than depicted, not as dark as the 'chocolate'-coloured cord from the same seller, but certainly not the pale/tan colour of the picture, and I know that this isn't a monitor-calibration issue since other pictures from the same seller do match the products.

1.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced Rubbish, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have several problems with this 'book':

1. With only 21 pages of content it is an overpriced pamphlet, not a book.

2. The title is misleading - it only has instructions 7 different bracelet braiding patterns, so 'Paracord Bracelets' would be more accurate.

3. Many of the pictures and instructions are misleading, or hard to follow - even for braiding patterns that I already know.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Brush Pen, 22 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm fairly new to brush-pens, and this is the first cheapish one I've found that I like - the tip is flexible enough to produce a wide range of line widths, and springy enough to survive fairly-heavy pressure, all while maintaining an even flow of ink.
I'll certainly be buying this brand again.

Yet another example of getting what you pay for:
The reset button fell-off mine the first time I used it, and the case fell apart the third time I used it.
It would cost more to return than I paid for it in the first place, which seems to be part of the marketing strategy of the manufacturers of cheap imported rubbish like this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Functional, 22 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've only used it twice, but it seems functional and robust - certainly better than the plastic ones in the same price range.
