5.0 out of 5 stars Can't think of anything bad to write about this one, 23 May 2017

Great remote, cheaper than the manufacturers originals, and work better than the originals too. Also has proper clicky buttons, and the cover to stop them being pressed accidentally can be a useful feature.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit too basic, 23 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is larger in the flesh than it looks in the photos, but is otherwise as you see it: big hard plastic job which takes four AA batteries in an internal holder. And it does indeed turn screw forwards and backwards, a little more ergonomically than the pistol-grip types.

So why the 3 stars? Mainly because there is no torque or speed control. It is either turning at full pelt or stopped, and goes from stopped to full on in an instant. Better be sure it's the right bit for the screw head and it's fitting exactly if you don't want to start rounding things off.

In smaller versions of this kind of screwdriver, torque control isn't a problem because your grip deals with it. With this one, there is too much oomph which is applied too quickly for any kind of manual control. But wait, there is worse...

There is no spindle lock when the motor is off, so you can't get the screw close to done and then turn the thing manually - the spindle just rotates with little resistance. To do up that last half-turn you're going to stab that button and have the bit just out of the screwhead as a) the spindle goes to full speed just like that, and b) you screw decides it's not going to turn any more.

Torque control, speed control or spindle lock. Any of those would improve this and make it usable, but unfortunately it comes with none.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't perform as it should, 22 May 2017

Seemed to work fine, then after a couple of weeks the powered equipment stopped. No problem, though I - perhaps a lack of sunlight but this thing will turn off and stop the battery being drained. Well, the battery is down to 4.8V so I don't think that bit works. Result: 2 star review and £40+ for a new battery.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly meh, but great bag, 4 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, this is not what you think of when you say 'denim'. It is very thin material indeed for real denim, and perhaps it is actually 'denim-look'. Couldn't tell.

Next, it is too large, and I am not talking 'slightly' here! I chose the M(edirum) because the size chart says this is for 38"-40". What arrived did indeed have an M lablel but measured 49" across. It is massive.

On the plus side, and what got it three stars instead of the two it deserves, the plastic bag it comes in is a very nice robust one with ziplock. Worth keeping for other purposes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap in some ways, but value for money, 31 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are good and bad things about this belt, but overall it is value for money. I gave it only four stars because the buckle is some lightweight, pressed steel affair which feels cheap (it IS cheap!). Nevertheless, it does the job and works.

The belt material, on the other hand, looks and feels like proper woven cloth. It is heat treatable to prevent fraying when cut, so there is at least some man-made aspect to it. A bit thin, but feels nice.

I thought there was a lack of flavour with this. It was useless in coffee, so I tried it in plain yoghurt and found that a comfortable level of sweetness provided no detectable vanilla flavour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the tin, 9 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was sceptical about these, usually tying my laces as tight as they well go (I wear trainers for my job, and often require extreme traction to help me move heavy bulks - slip-ons are a liability in these situations). Which may explain why the laces have just worn thought, so I ordered these on a whim.

I have to say that I am a convert. Once done, my trainers don't feel so tight (but don't feel loose either) and stay on my feet. So far, so good. But these are advertised as converting laced shoes to slip-ons, and they really have done this. I can slip my trainers off and then get my feet back in without messing with the laces, so I am pretty impressed.

A reservation I had was that the toggle looked a bit thick, but in practice it is not a problem at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, nice cut, 30 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good fit, although could be slightly longer in the leg for 33" jobs. Unbelievably, I didn't realise these came with a hi-viz too, so the inclusion of that means these are fantastic value for money - the quality is easily good enough for the pants alone to be worth the cost (albeit perhaps a slightly more expensive, aka 'quality', zip could be used).

4.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't quite match the promise, 20 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a pretty cool product that works to spec, but may not be actually what one wants.

To expand, it does indeed place speed and associated info in front of your eyes, and the LEDs are bright and colourful. That may actually be a problem since the display can obscure what you're looking at (akin to, say, a reflection or a bright window). I found it bad enough that I moved the display over to the right, so it is out of my direct line of vision but still preripherally visibile. I think that if just the speed was shown, using red LEDs, that might not have been such a problem.

Next, pretty much any car these days will suffer the double-image problem since toughened windscreens are mandatory. The supplied reflective film that solves this problem was, frankly, pants. It is just too opaque to straight-through stuff, so the area where it is placed is much darker. If that happens to be right in front of you... It is bad enough that I junked it in favour of just putting up with the double image!

Another bugbear is that the update rate appears to be more or less 1 second. Not a big problem on the straight and steady, but when accelerating the speed display lags significantly, and the revs indicator similarly shows history rather than what's happening right now.

Nevertheless, despite the foregoing, I am using this in my car still (albeit, as mentioned, showing a double image off to one side).
