Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Wireless Gaming Mouse - Black
Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Wireless Gaming Mouse - Black
Price: £113.13

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent mouse but avoid if using a 4k display, the software just isn't up to the task, 14 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Expensive but it's a pretty versatile gaming mouse, and good for left handed users. It's a mouse that feels good in the hand, yes it is very 'plastic' but that's due to the design goal of minimal weight.

However, the huge drawback with this, and all logitech peripherals, is the inability of their software to scale properly on 4k displays... the software is an important aspect of customising the product for your needs, yet you will need magnifying glass to use it. Logitech are fully aware of the problem but have done absolutely nothing to rectify the situation. This is 2017 and 4k displays are now fairly common, therefore it is shocking to find a company such as Logitech so slow to adapt.

It's hard to recommend this product to anyone using it with a 4k display.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly satisfied, it can accommodate more than you would imagine, 18 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed a minimalist ultra compact computer desk and this fitted the bill perfectly. I often wonder why computer desks are still the same size as when we had huge towers and huge crt monitors? This desk manages to accommodate my 27 inch monitor, full size keyboard and enough room for mouse use in it's small footprint.

Very simple to construct, nice to see that all tools were provided. Having read a few reviews below I was forewarned of the problem of the top shelf bolts going so deep at to protrude slightly on the top, so 4 large washers were found to stop that happening.

The unit didn't feel 100% solid, ok but not rock steady, with the castors on the feet... therefore I removed these due to the fact I have a very short pile carpet and the unit moved quite nicely over it even without the castors, the result was a far sturdier unit with my computer bits on it.

The actual work surface seem surprisingly durable for such a cheap product, the rounded front edge is a nice touch. The dark colour is not to my taste at all, reminds me of a pub, so I will probably apply a light oak hard wearing vinyl to it.

All in all, very satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple & effective, better than old sky wi-fi box as it is powered by the sky box not a wall wart, 21 Oct. 2016

No problems, fitted to a refurbed DRX890 (£29!!) for my parents. Far better than the old larger non self powered wi-fi box supplied with my own skybox

4.0 out of 5 stars App needs work, choice a bit limited but all in all it's fine for emergency shopping, 18 Sept. 2016
This review is from: Amazon Prime Now (App)
Seems ok to me, downloaded the app on my ipad easily enough albeit the display is small and vertical phone sized. As said by others, the choice is rather limited but I guess we're usually spoiled by choice when shopping online.

This is more like a small supermarket, it will have most of what you want, and probably viable alternatives to your normal favourites.

The £2 tip is optional but set to default as on, it is stated that 100% of this money goes to the driver... and my own driver confirmed this as being the case, he graciously refused any extra tip.

I live in a 2 hour delivery zone and my order arrived on time with all items perfectly packaged. Real time tracking on a google map of exactly where your driver is was most fun.

The front end isn't perfect, the app needs work and neither can i fathom why this is restricted to mobile devices. Obviously the choice of items needs to be broader, but I suppose this is currently aimed at emergency shopping more than anything.

5.0 out of 5 stars For a change you are in total control of illumination level with this bedside clock, 6 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely perfect little bed side clock... Nothing fancy, doesn't tell whether it's raining in Cape Town and nowhere to stick your iphone but most importantly you are in charge of illumination! This item is designed by a normal sensible human rather than some techy kid in the far east who wants a video game beside their bed.
Variable dimmer is a godsend, it's not a 2 position switch with settings of lorry on main beam and retina damage but a rotary control from barely readable at 5 inches to just a bit too bright... with infinite settings between.

It seems bizarre to me that some reviewers have difficulty in viewing the display in bright daylight, it's far more visible than passive LCD.

I won't be using the alarm so I can't see any reason to touch this clock until a battery change.

5.0 out of 5 stars rejuvenated my computer desk in no time, good quality finish & easy to apply, 31 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Best £10 I've spent in a long time. Easy to use and excellent finish, totally rejuvenated my computer desk with a far better finish and more attractive grain effect than the original.Just trying to think what else could do with a nice new finish.

2.0 out of 5 stars Think of it solely as a rather expensive indoor thermometer, 28 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Think of it solely as an indoor thermometer with a large display, therefore expensive on that basis. Remote sensor is flaky and unreliable, nothing to do with proximity or water ingress, it's simply substandard. I don't generally give negative reviews, but this item is very poor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal storage solution, 19 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent storage device for your capsules. It may not be as visually impressive as some that have the coloured capsules all out on display but it matches my Lattissima touch perfectly and you have 50 (in reality 55) capsules taking up no room as close to the machine as you can get.
The drawer slides perfectly freely with my Lattissima Touch on top with full water and milk tanks.
As I said, and I dare say already mentioned somewhere in the reviews, the device actually takes 11 capsules per section
