Sivitec 10 Pc Needle File Set Jewellers Files DIY Tool
Sivitec 10 Pc Needle File Set Jewellers Files DIY Tool
Offered by Sivitec_Direct
Price: £3.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and handy, 11 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A useful file set handy for modelling or working on small objects. I used them for working on a die cast model. They are supplied with a flimsy plastic case to keep them together although it is better than nothing. The files themselves are not the best quality and can wear if filing metal but are fine for casual use and I have little complaint bearing in mind the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Covers all the bases., 11 Jun. 2016
A slightly misleading listing as this is not a 12 in 1 adaptor but rather this is 12 separate adaptors although it is obvious from the picture what you are getting. They cover pretty much every option for USB 3 connectivity which by definition is compatible with USB 2 and 1 on a full size socket although the micro standards are different. They are supplied in a bag with each adaptor individually bagged and while there are no instructions none are needed.

The angled adaptors are particularly useful and the connectors themselves seem to be good quality while all the ones I tried worked as expected first time. This is a useful set to have especially for those frustrating times when you don't quite have the right lead or connector although it would be useful to have a case or some way of organising them.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid enclosure., 11 Jun. 2016
A really useful and well made external drive enclosure. It was supplied boxed with a USB-3 cable a protective screen to protect the electrics of a traditional drive and very basic instructions. It is well made with an aluminium enclosure and plastic drive door.

Note the size of the drives supported, this enclosure is not suitable for very slim SSD drives and Orico provide alternatives for them. While they fit and are secure they may not ejected when the case is opened. Something I found to my cost although I was eventually able to work the SSD drive out. My drive was 7mm thick which is below the recommended size on the listing but not on the box. The metal tab that ejects the SSD can miss the drive it is very slim.

The button to open the drive enclosure is quite stiff but it helps to push down on it as it releases a latch. The drive is held well and sonnects to SATA connections in the enclosure. It was recognised by my Windows PC and a blue light on the enclosure lit to show connectivity. This is a useful external drive for using as a backup or to help migration between drives where there is only space for one. Supplied by Orico in exchange for an honest review.

Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Colourful and comfortable., 11 Jun. 2016
These are good quality ladies socks with an attractive Owl design. I ordered them for my wife and they came well packaged in a resealable bag with a clear back and branded front. .

She is only a size 4 but found them comfortable and stretchy while still staying in place. She reporting them to be comfortable with no noticeable seams or rough bits. The material was quite this and soft and they may be a bit hot in the summer but certainly kept her feet warm. The toes were reinforced and the were no frayed edges or dodgy stitching.

She is happy to recommend them and consider them to be good value. Supplied by Ambielly in exchange for an honest review

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and well presented, 11 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a review of the hardback version of 101 Chillies to Try Before You Die. This is a handy little reference book with a lot of information that is well presented. The book includes popular chillies as well as more obscure ones and is set out in order of heat from the Jimmy Nardello to the evil looking Carolina Reaper.

Each variety gets 2 pages with a colour picture as well as the heat in scovilles, the variety and where it came from. There is also basic growing information although this is more to set expectation and a list of seed suppliers. I enjoyed this book and found it an interesting read as well as a handy reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality lace socks, 11 Jun. 2016
These are good quality lace socks ideal for wearing under pumps or open shoes. I ordered them for my wife and they came well packaged in a resealable bag with a clear back and branded front. .

She is only a size 4 but found them comfortable and stretchy while still staying in place, reporting them to be comfortable with no noticeable seams or rough bits. The sole has some anti-slip silicone dots to help stop slipping and they could be used at home on there own but they are a bit lightweight for that.

She is happy to recommend them and consider them to be good value. Supplied by Ambielly in exchange for an honest review

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough case., 5 Jun. 2016
This is a review of the 12 SD Card and 12 Micro-SD Card case as there are different products in the range. A really handy case for keeping all my spare memory cards and memory card adapters together and safe. It is also supplied with a carabiner to hang the case onto a rucksack or camera bag and a soft drawstring bag pouch to protect the case or keep accessories together.

The build quality is excellent with the case being made of ABS plastic with a O ring around the outside and a sturdy clasp for a water tight seal. I ran it under the tap and it did not leak so this seems to work. Inside there are foam cut outs for SD and for Micro-SD cards behind them. They are quite tight but the cards fit securely and I am sue they will loosen with age. There are also two loose inserts to document which card is which.

I was very pleased with this case and think it provides excellent protection for my memory cards. Supplied by Beeway in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the cover put you off!, 4 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Generation Me (MP3 Download)
This band just keep getting better. I like the clean production, sounds similar to when Mutt Lange got hold of Def Leppard with High and Dry and produced one of my favourites. There is still plenty on energy and they are great live so I am looking forward to seeing them when I get a chance. In fact I like everything about this album except the cover!

The guitars are crisp, with some great riffs and solid support from the bass and drums. Mitchel Emms is a good replacement for Matt Jones who I also liked, with a similar style but his own approach and demonstrates an excellent range. It will be interesting to see how he fronts the band. So put down your old rock records and try something new, you may find you like it!


Bike Lock, Blusmart Security 6-Feet Long Cable 5-digit resettable combination
Bike Lock, Blusmart Security 6-Feet Long Cable 5-digit resettable combination
Offered by efsuk
Price: £19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy lock, 4 Jun. 2016
This is a sturdy lock which looks as though it will provide some security to your bike. It is supplied with instructions on how to change the combination as well as a holder that can be attached to your bike. Due to many bikes having shaped crossbars and down tubes it is probably going to be attached to the seat tube. The holder clamps using two screws supplied and the lock slots in while you press a red button to release the lock. The lock is not a very tight fit and I am a bit concerned it may fall off in time but it hasn't yet.

The lock itself weighs approximately 600g without the holder and is about 6 feet in length. It is made of metal with a plastic cover and a steel braided cable coated in PVC. It has a 5 digit combination lock that is easily set although this can only be done when the lock is released so don't forget the combination you save it to! This is a sturdy lock at a reasonable price, there are cheaper ones but the five digit combination and sturdy build help to justify it. Supplied by Linkpower in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made and well priced., 4 Jun. 2016
This review is for 11.6 inch version ordered to carry a Lenovo Yoga 700 which is a tablet / laptop hybrid. First impressions were good, the colour matched the listing and the bag is well finished with a canvas type material Inside is a soft valour and there is padding as well to provide protection to your valuable device.

The Lenovo fitted like a glove and there is a separate sleeve for documents although there is not room for the power supply, however this keeps the bag slim and compact. You can hold it by the handles which are canvas and feel secure or fold them away and just carry it which looks a bit more masculine with this small bag!

Overall I am very pleased with this bag and consider it is well priced for the quality and design. Supplied by Zikee in exchange for an honest review.
