4.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable low cost protection for your screen, 3 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fine as a low-cost alternative to having a damaged screen, which is a costly hassle even if you repair it yourself as I did with a cheaper phone (was still £20 damage and an unusable phone for a couple of days). Won't last forever as the edges get damaged and then crack across the glass, but if I have to replace it once every year, it's still a pretty good deal. Wouldn't go for a cheaper version as when I did, it lasted for days rather than months. Well protected and good enough instructions for a good deal of phone screen protection.

Would be good if it did fit. Unclear that it'should for boot when every part is removed. Poor and somewhat aggressive customer service. Don't waste time and money. Expensive to return.

1.0 out of 5 stars Time to try another make., 24 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Disappointing. First time I've tried something like this as I've just got a new phone. I had to replace the screen on my last phone after dropping it, so thought this was worth a go. First day of using I noticed a chip in the glass - not sure whether this was because the phone was in a pocket with keys, but the chip has spread a crack across the glass. OK it was cheap, but I hoped for better than 1 day of use. Time to try another make...

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful device maybe over-spec., 6 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems to work quickly and well enough to allow me to decide which logs to burn and those which need to be left for longer to dry out more. A useful device to look after the chimney, reduce the soot given off and get the most heat out of your logs. Shame the 'long life heavy duty' battery lasted only a couple of weeks. Not sure that going for a device which gives differentiates between different types of wood is worth it; although it includes species such as ash, oak and birch, it also includes exotic species which you're unlikely to put in the log burner such as teak! (Guess that's buying a Chinese instrument for you).

Bought for a friend who is heading out to NZ and who borrowed my 18 year old copy. As you might expect it's been highly updated, in colour and looks very user friendly. Hopefully it'll be well used!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Poor quality - difficult to get phone in/out and very limited adjustment on the arm - great if you've got larger arms or wearing long sleeved clothing, not good for smaller arms! Velcro type strap not good - potential for the phone dropping off your arm if running and you haven't placed it perfectly. However it's cheap and you get what you pay for! Have since replaced it with a more usable, more adjustable version which cost 20 euros.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just connected up for the darker evenings. Much brighter than 'low energy' (fluorescent) bulbs. Did the job brilliantly. Only thing that could be improved is the distance the PIR can pick up. Very adjustable for different levels of light and the length of time the light stays on.

Update... the PIR sensor has, after a second season, failed, meaning that the light now has about 3 seconds after turning off before turning back on again. Time to seek a replacement. Quite annoying for me and doubly so for my neighbours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bright!, 8 July 2014

Would have been 5 star for the brightness and performance - much better than any other 'low energy' (compact fluorescent) bulb. Only reason for losing a star is that the first bulb didn't work - but replaced at speed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 1 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Main issues seem to be around Windows 8, which was pre-installed. Am trying to install 8.1 upgrade for the second time after the machine locked out my children from using it without the 'administrator' (me) allowing them to go on by performing a function which I didn't seem to be allowed to.
I bought a Windows 8 phone at about the same time and apart from having a limited range of Apps compared to iphone or Android, it's pretty straightforward to use; I was hoping for a similar experience but have been left wanting.

Other main issue is the fact that you have to pay to install office - have decided against using 365 as I didn't want to pay a subscription.
Hope my Windows 7 machine keeps going for a long time, as I suspect that a Mac is beckoning.

Update 2 July.
Returning to Amazon for refund as have wasted far too much time trying to get the laptop to work. Highly disappointed. If this was a car it would have very low mileage and have spent 5 out of the last 6 months in the garage...
Final let down was trying to return the machine to factory state and the model flashed up on screen - different to that printed on the outside of the case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good light performance, 2 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Almost 5 Star due to energy saving and cost over huge lifetime, but one bulb only lasted 4 days. Long Life Lamp Co had great customer service, replacing it within 2 days of being informed (1 day being post). Sick of replacing high energy poor quality incandescent bulbs so looking forward to 10 years or so low energy lighting. 4W energy rating gives equivalent of 40W incandescent.
