2.0 out of 5 stars Worked. Until it didn't., 27 April 2016
Didn't buy it here but received as a gift. It worked for a year, and then the two right rotors failed. I find it difficult to believe the motors failed independently and simultaneously. Moving the power supply jumpers from the remaining working rotor to a failed one didn't work, thus suggesting the motor itself was knackered, but on the other hand, moving power supply from either of the failed rotors would not move the remaining working rotor either, thus suggesting power supply. So a mystery to my admittedly feeble brain. Am ordering this as a replacement so that the donor doesn't realise it failed, but I am, needless to say, not hugely impressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice indeed, 15 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
PU "leather" (aka tannery sweepings bound with plastic) is rather unconvincing, but a great fit with the Surface Pro (and Pro2) with touchcover. Also fits a stylus alongside the tablet. Attractive.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE it!, 15 May 2015

Nothing, but nothing, approaches the sheer godawful ghastliness of this case. I LOVE it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugely underrated, incredibly competent productivity and media tool, 15 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm using this with the Microsoft dock (reduced from $200 to $90 on Best Buy) and the proprietary MS Touch illuminated, paper-thin keyboard (£55 down from £100). This is an incredibly able computer, and with the dock connected to a conventional keyboard, really gives the best of all worlds. And I say this as a hardline Apple and Mac fan since 2005 (actually used to code an Apple IIc in the 80's, but I guess that doesn't count...) Really well designed and executed, the SurfacePro and Pro2 never got the kudos that IMHO they deserved, always being slated for what they weren't (not as light as iPad, keyboard not as good as MacBook Air) without getting credit for what they are - a beautifully-constructed media consumption device and powerful desktop replacement I can unplug in 2s and walk away with to a meeting room. The Pro3 started to turn the tide in terms of reviewer perception, and now that the new Surface 3 has dropped the lame duck Windows RT in favour of full Windows 8.1 (soon to be Windows 10), the range is getting the credit it deserves as a viable, attractive and - dare I say - cool-tech alternative to Apple products. Wholeheartedly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars No bloody good and has now died., 31 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought at end September 2014 for my son's Surface Pro. Has hardly been used, as he prefers the touchscreen. And now it's dead; stone cold dead. And past return date. I would be even crosser if it had ever been any good; it was a horrible user experience, to be honest. Uncomfortable shape, dodgy scrolling.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good at all, if like me you get sub-standard (returned?) stock, 30 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought two - but looking at other reviews and images, I had a couple of bad ones, I think. The packaging had clearly got wet at some point, and the internal labels etc. were creased - looked like a repack. And then I made them, and found why. On both, the support stand is about 5-10 degrees off-angle from the connector stand. It's quite clear, even from a visual inspection of the two parts before assembly, that one or other of them has been machined at the wrong angle (and goodness is that a messy cut, too). Since the support stand is leaning further than the connector, the result is no support. It just about works for the iPhone and iPod touch (though looks messy) but I would not dare place my iPad mini on it. A shame, because the product looks good, but these will be returned. Good luck with getting a good one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, not terribly well executed, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably rather full in length, and line is sometimes awry, too. I suspect the second edition, if there is one, will be less fulsome about the late and not so great Yorkshireman Jimmy Savile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary quality for the price, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is, according to internet rumour, the same IPS screen as used on the 27" Apple Thunderbolt displays; just those which are rated at less than perfect. Some users have complained of a few dead or blue pixels. None on this one. The quality of the picture is amazing, and it is also an extremely attractive piece of kit, with a very thin front edge more reminiscent of the new iMacs than the current Apple thunderbolt display. Shipped from Korea in just 3 days, which was remarkable, after initially giving a 3 week shipping estimate. What's not to love?

Toffee International Leather Sleeve for 11-Inch MacBook Air (T11-MBA-R)

3.0 out of 5 stars Old, dusty stock; brushed up ok, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When it arrived, in a box big enough to contain a desktop computer (come on, guys, it's a leather case - how much padding does it need??) it was dusty, even cobwebby, and the card wrapper had obviously got damp at some stage. This was a gift for the Macbook owner and I couldn't give it to her in that condition; I'm using for my Samsung Chromebook, which it also fits, just. Not very impressive. But it wiped down OK and is an OK cover. I say only OK because it adds quite a bit of bulk; it has an inner padding layer between the leather outer and the liner which feels as if it adds more bulk than protection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really very good, 27 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of course it's not actually carbon fibre, but then, unlike many others out there, it makes no claim to be. But it fits easily and perfectly, and looks really good, and (being, effectively, a piece of sticky back plastic, as Lesley Judd would say) it adds no bulk at all. Highly recommended.
