Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As other reviewers have said, this should be used as a secondary light for your aquarium, not a primary source. The white is somewhat unattractive in hue, and its range of colours aren't great, but the blues/purples are very attractive and add a level of depth and interest. I couldn't see the difference between the strobe/flash modes, and while the fade does at least fade between colours nicely, it does so much too fast to have any kind of soothing effect. I suspect this controller would be more suitable for Christmas tree lights than fish tanks.

My primary objection, and the one that prevents me giving it more than three stars, is the fact that it lacks memory - if you turn it off at the mains, it will reset to a garish multicoloured flashing mode when switched back on. If you intend to have a timer-controlled nightlight (as I did), forget this and buy just a single-colour blue light.

3.0 out of 5 stars I love the idea, 19 Jun. 2017
Far too dim to light a room properly. I love the idea, but they're just no use as lightbulbs.

4.0 out of 5 stars ... scratchy and the non-flag side of the print looks terrible. However, 19 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The quality of this duvet set is not high - the material is scratchy and the non-flag side of the print looks terrible. However, as a cheap US flag duvet cover, it's exactly what I needed it to be, and the pattern that you see is actually pretty good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good for about five minutes, 19 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These bags seemed to work really well at first - they reduced large bulky items to small packages that could fit anywhere. Unfortunately, every singe one of my six bags let in air after a few weeks. Not so easy to get things back out from under the bed when they've expanded back to their original size.

5.0 out of 5 stars but fine for my purposes, 2 May 2017

Cheap, well-made HDMI cable. Does the job it needs to and nothing more. Maybe a little on the short side, but fine for my purposes.

Didn't pick up any HD channels regardless of where it was placed. Of limited utility to me. I'll keep using iPlayer I guess.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good print, weird-shaped shirt, 2 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The print is good, but the colour is much lighter than the picture suggests (I bought the blue one), and more frustratingly while the fit is good along the shoulders, the shirt is incredibly long to the point where it looks ridiculous if I wear it. Good for lounging around the house, but not much else.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic solution to wrist pains for a very good price, 14 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't say much to the longevity of this mouse as I've not had it long, but so far it's a huge success. Feels nice in the hand and surprisingly easy to get used to. My wrist pains are all but gone since switching, although I did have a bit of a sore arm for the first couple of days!

Good shower but once you turn it on the head fills with water and suddenly it's too heavy for a normal bracket to hold up. Bonk.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality, poor light., 14 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Junk. Extender cables don't fit in the sockets without being forced at breaking point. Connections are unreliable despite this and a minor jog will cause the light to go out. Three of my four lights have a horrible cold white light (and I usually like colder lights). The fourth briefly lit up yellow and then never lit again. And after all that they don't even provide much illumination.
