4.0 out of 5 stars I think they work as part of an allergy control regime (special bed linen etc.), 11 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without using a microscope it's impossible to give a scientific review of the effect of the dust mite controllers, because the mites are too small to see, which I'm quite glad about! So, bearing that in mind I can say they haven't made things worse (good start!), and I feel my nose is much clearer than it was before.
My eye was caught by a comment of a previous reviewer who mentioned that they'd found the additional benefit of getting rid of clothes moths, which is a problem we've recently had after many decades in the house without them. The units may be having a similar effect here, though the moths haven't all gone, there are certainly fewer, though the cold snap last month could also have had something to do with that. The odds are in favour of these devices making a positive difference. There's only one way to find out for yourself . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Manfrotto LED Photography light, 16 Feb. 2017

I bought these hoping they would fit the Manfrotto Lykos bi-colour LED, and the good news is, they do! Added bonus is they work well.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK in Drizzle - Not much good in a Gale, 3 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This umbrella was marketed as the new improved version - perhaps I got an old one.
It didn't work and so has been returned. This is a big disappointment to me, as I spent a long time choosing what looked the best for the job - summer holiday in Britain! Typically for us it arrived in a cold, calm week so I waited for the weather to change and took it down town for a test. The first strong gust of wind to the back of the umbrella turned it inside out immediately. It's easy to see what's wrong - as someone mentioned before in these reviews, the tension of the vent flaps is so great that they are unable to open before the radial struts give way. If this is a lack of understanding on behalf of the manufacturer, the designer should tell them how it's supposed to work. If the umbrella didn't open quite so widely the tension would be less and it could work - a washer or 'jubilee clip' on the shaft to limit the 'throw' could work, but at the price I was loathe to bother experimenting. Otherwise, the umbrella gave every impression of being well made.

One other quibble for shorter persons, like myself - now about 5' 6" in shoes, was that it's quite tall to walk with when furled. If I held it as a normal gent's umbrella used as a walking stick, it was too tall, and if held by the handle in the palm of the hand, it would serve me as a walking pole for fellwalking.

The weight of the umbrella was more than I expected with a fibreglass centre pole, although it's better than metal one for insulation in a thunder storm! (Seriously, don't use an umbrella in a thunderstorm - if up a hill, crouch down into a ball or elsewhere sit in a car if available - Faraday Cage.) With the wind behind this brolly, anyone with a weak upper arm or wrist wouldn't be able to use it.

The quiver shaped holder of similar black material to the umbrella is also inadequately designed. The top fold where the carrying shoulder strap is looped through such that it can be tightened by tension is wrong - the stresses are on the side of the seam rather than the top edge so the seam will split. There is no need to tighten the top - the umbrella will not fall out unless in zero gravity. The quiver is too tight for easy deployment and a pain to put back on after use. The lower hole for the ferrule end cannot be tightened with the strap tension, and this is where it's really needed. The ferrule itself would benefit from the fitting of a rubber cap (as available at Wilko's) but the quiver would need to be designed with a wider hole and tensioner string to accomodate this. The quiver is absolutely essential for carrying this umbrella about - it's too heavy, long and cumbersome to keep under your arm - when shopping you're forever apologising for colliding with other customers with it.

All I have to do now is find another one which works . . . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Give a small TV an audio quality boost with these speakers . . ., 21 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm using these loudspeakers to improve the sound from my 16 inch Ferguson TV. They work well and definitely improve the audio. I'm using the TV's headphone-output jack socket, and programming the TV to mute it's internal speakers. As this TV doesn't have a powered USB socket, I'm picking up power for the speakers from my video recorder. I've set the TV audio output high, and control actual audio output level via the video recorder/tuner remote control. I've got the Gogroove speaker volume control about 3/4 max. There is plenty of audio volume for an average room.

4.0 out of 5 stars iPad mini fast charger, 11 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works fine and handy to have an extra cable. Improvement over original charge time perhaps a little below expectation, but there are too many variables to bother pinning it down. It is quicker, maybe up to 30%. Designing equipment which takes so long to charge compared with how long it's available for use is the manufacturer's failure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice lamp., 22 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
SEBSON E14 (small Edison screw) 2.6W LED, Warm White, I bought this as a possible replacement for a music stand light because the filament version was too fragile when stands got knocked over. It is very bright - probably too bright in my application, but time will tell . . . I've no long term usage reliability information yet. Nice lamp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth looking into - GGS LCD Glass Screen Protector For Canon 7D, 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The GGS LCD Glass Screen Protector For Canon 7D is easy to fit (de-grease screen first, remove paper side of protector, press down from centre outwards), it's very clear and reassuring to have the extra protection. Just make sure you don't fit it too low down or you may obscure some of the top line of information on the rear screen. Included is a smaller protector for the top LCD display. Recommended.
