Mooer MDL1 Repeater Guitar Delay Effects Pedal
Mooer MDL1 Repeater Guitar Delay Effects Pedal
Offered by Rich Tone Music
Price: £64.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Mooer Repeater, 6 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does exactly what it says on the box. High quality digital delay, with a good, long delay time. The chorus effect you can add to the delay is nice. Also, the effect only option is useful if you run it in an effect loop, or on a mixing desk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great lead for the fraction of the price of buying from Apple., 12 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice quality USB charging cable. Only time will tell if the inherent weak-spot, the point at which the cable joins the Apple connector, lasts. To be honest, even if it lasts half the length of time the original cable did, it would still be worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great battery., 20 Oct. 2013

Produces slightly less current than the original battery, but this doesn't seem to be a problem in practise. Charges quickly and easily lasts as long as the one that came with the camera.

This product works very well with a direct connection to the camera and also as a compact flash reader. You will probably get a message saying "Device not supported" after it has been connected, but it doesn't seem to affect the performance at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea, terrible design!, 20 Oct. 2013
I bought one of these when the iPhone 5 came out. It seemed perfect for my needs at the time. It broke within a few months. The top plastic corners are very much a weak point in the design. They started cracking almost immediately, and broke off on the left side shortly afterwards. Another problem is the lack of catch to hold the flip-front closed. I imagine that the back of the phone is the only thing that is actually protected!


Rain Design mStand Laptop Stand (Patented)
Rain Design mStand Laptop Stand (Patented)

5.0 out of 5 stars Rain Design mStand, 22 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All of Rain Design's products are very stylish and well designed. The mStand is no exception. It is made from a solid piece of aluminium and is very sturdy. Small rubber pads protect your laptop and work surface, and create a convenient gap to pass cables through the holes in the stand. The overall look of the stand compliments a MacBook Pro and Mac accessories very nicely.
MacBook Pros of a certain age are prone to get very hot under heavy CPU usage. Since Aluminium is a very good conductor of heat, this helps keep keep the operating temperature down.
I bought this stand after suffering from a back problem, brought about by but bad posture while sitting at my laptop. I combined it with a new aluminium wireless keyboard and wireless mouse and now have a setup that is much more comfortable and ergonomic when using it at home. The space below the laptop is useful for placing a hard drive or other peripherals, freeing up desk space.
I use a 15" MacBook Pro, although I'm sure a 13 or 17" would fit perfectly.
I have been using this for a few months now, and I can't fault it in terms of functionality and style. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect portable keyboard, 24 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I spent a long time hunting for the perfect portable keyboard to use with my laptop. I originally owned a Korg Nanokey, but it was too small, badly made and broke after very little use. The Microkey is a much larger keyboard (don't expect to pop it in your laptop bag!), but a lot more playable. Three octaves are just enough for basic programming. The keys have an old-style synth feel to them, so no weighted piano keyboard action here! I wouldn't recommend learning to play the piano on it, but it is much easier to program drum parts and synth riffs on a keyboard like this. The pitch wheel is nicely, and firmly, spring-loaded and the modulation wheel is smooth and easy to use. The octave up/down buttons are well located and work well. The inclusion of a couple of extra USB ports is a nice touch: always handy for an extra device or dongle, etc. If you pair this with a Korg Nanokontrol 2, you've got a pretty decent mobile programming setup. This device is class compliant, so no need to download any drivers. It is genuinely 'plug and play'. I think the Microkey offers the best value for money for a portable keyboard in this price-range.

3.0 out of 5 stars May not be for you., 23 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since everyone has a different shaped nose, this product may or may not work for you. Personally, I found the small dilator to be too small and kept falling out. The medium size worked, but was too big, causing too much discomfort after a few minutes use. I would put it in when going to bed but, even if I did manage to fall asleep with it in, I would find that the discomfort would cause me to wake up during the night to remove it, thus defeating the purpose. Obviously, trying one of these is unlikely to be an option before buying, so it's a question of gambling on whether it's going to work for you, or not. I've ended up going back to the stick-on nasal strips, which can be bough quite cheaply if you hunt around and buy in bulk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little gadget!, 23 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without having another reference device, it is difficult to testify as to it's accuracy, but it certainly gives you a good, 'ball-park' figure. I bought it to measure the temperature in different rooms in order to balance my heating system, which is controlled by a single thermostat in the hallway. It's surprisingly compact, with a nice, clear display. It can be set to show the temperature in Centigrade or Fahrenheit. It can also record the maximum and minimum temperatures achieved. Great little gadget for the price.


Brabantia Profile Line Universal Opener

Price: £8.96

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well., 23 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently bought a cheap, flexible, plastic jar and bottle opener, only to find that it doesn't seem to fit any lid or cap size that I need it for. However, this Brabantia model works flawlessly on any size of container that you would commonly come across. There is a good reason why this type of design has been around for years. It works!
