1.0 out of 5 stars Too easy to scratch, 25 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
TPU marks VERY easily. Mine looked stuffed after a day's normal use. Returned for a full refund. Disappointing for a case that trades on its looks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but difficult to get off the phone, 25 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice case. Suits the black Xperia XZ Premium well. However, very difficult to take the case off, so if one swaps cases, this is a pain. Otherwise, usual Spigen quality.

Great case. Good feel in the hand, and good quality. Nice raised lip protects the screen.

3.0 out of 5 stars No magnetic strip, so no sleep/wake function, 25 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case does not have a magnetic strip, despite this being mentioned in the Q&A by the seller. It's a Nilkin case, which is otherwise nice, but a wake and sleep function on a wallet case is a must have for me. If it doesn't bother you, it is otherwise a nice, slim case.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the investment. Looks great. Updated: Not wearing well - hard to recommend., 20 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent quality, and a good fit with my new 2017 MacBook Pro 13. Great job, Snugg.

Updated 24/09/2017.
The case is already wearing badly - the leather is coming away at one corner. This has only ever been stored in a padded section of a backpack. Very disappointed. Have contacted The Snugg to see what they will do under the lifetime guarantee. On my experience, it is now hard to recommend this case, which is a pity, as it otherwise looks and feels good. Rating reduced to two stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incompatible with B&W P7 - Too tight a fit, 12 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This simply does not work. The connector at the headphone end is too thick to properly fit into the channel on the left ear cup of the B&W P7. It will fit with a squeeze, but it leaves an impression on the memory foam backing of the left ear cup Remote works as an Android remote with Samsung S7 (all buttons function), and cable connector at the phone end is robust and seems to offer good strain relief. Impossible to recommend and very disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended, but can have handshake issues, 10 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the best priced HDMI switch that can also pass HDR. Nicely made little box, but comes with a Euro plug, so a converter is needed. The HDMI handshake can be flaky, but changing inputs via the remote or turning the switch off and on again cures any handshake issues. My experience with all 4K sources (not even HDR ones) is that handshakes can be problematic - Sky Q for example, so I'm not really upset here. However, worth noting to any potential purchasers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - buy with confidence., 10 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent - have two of these around my home, as well as the Echo. If you like Alexa, then you will love these. They work as expected, and a great way for adding multiroom functionality. The built in speaker is ok for voice feedback from Alexa, but is (as one would expect) considerably lower in volume and quality than the Echo. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but pricey, 10 Feb. 2017
Works well, and integrates with Alexa via Amazon. Just a bit pricey, hence the loss of a star. I don't find the energy usage function (via the Kasa app that supports this) much use, but that's just me.
