Great pliers, well worth the money. So much better than cheap long nose pliers, which tend to distort in use. These are accurately made and strong. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but can mkae your ears too hot!, 30 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are good ear defenders, and are comfortable to wear. The only problem is that I find them far too hot, and this makes them fairly unpleasant, especially in hot weather. If it wasn't for this problem I would have given them 5 stars, as in all other respects they are great.

These are great ear defenders. I find they are comfortable for extended use and don't seem to get too hot in use, unlike some others. I also like that the ear cups sit together when they are removed, keeping them clean inside.

Super quality pliers. Was fed up with using unbranded cheap pliers that didn't align properly, or grip well enough. These make a world of difference and are definitely worth the money. Highly recommended. This size seems to be a good compromise size for most tasks.

1.0 out of 5 stars This square (and the smaller version) are both basically useless for accurate work, 25 Sept. 2015
This square (and the smaller version) are both basically useless for accurate work. I may have been unlucky, but the two I owned were both very distorted along the 90 degree edge, mainly because of the nearby cut out along that edge. The large one was bent by approximately 3mm! This square mat be ok for some very approximate rough work, but is in no way suitable if any accuracy is required. Both mine went back for a refund.

These squares are super quality, very accurate and tough. They are far superior to most other plastic rafter squares, and do not distort unlike the yellow and black ones from Stanley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Tablet, 22 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really love this tablet. It is super quality, feels and looks very well made and is sturdy, giving the impression of a much more expensive tablet. The screen is great with good viewing angles.

I previously owned last years model (ME173), and have taken advantage of the generous trade in offer to get this tablet at a true bargain price. In most ways this tablet is better than the previous one, the sound is louder and better quality, the physical size is smaller in all three dimensions (the screen is the same size though) it is far more responsive and faster at everything. The plastic back of the tablet is a matt plastic finish, much nicer than the shiny plastic of the previous model. The yellow one I have is not rubbery (I think it is only the black that has the rubbery texture), and not quite as bright as in the picture, I am very pleased with the colour, and it is nicer than I thought it would be (I only got it because it was on at a super time limited discount).

The newer version of Android that this comes with is much nicer in my opinion, and the Asus customisation of Android are good. Most apps seem to work well with the Intel processor, although I am having a few problems with Skype at present, but hopefully this will be sorted soon.

The only things that are not as good as previously are the battery life and camera. The battery life isn't terrible, but the previous one gave an extra couple of hours I think. It is worth using Asus' super saver battery mode. Also I believe lithium batteries take few charges to fully condition them. It is important to follow Asus' advice about the first charge. Both the cameras have a lower megapixel count compared to last years camera, but neither model takes super pictures. They do take acceptable snaps in good lighting conditions, and are ok as an emergency fall back. If I want to take quality pictures I use my camera! Or my phone, which takes better pictures than the tablet.

Overall, an excellent quality, super fast, and superb value tablet that takes some beating. Highly recommended. I really don't know why you would need to spend hundreds more.

This is a superb thermometer, feels very good quality and well made. The screen is large and very clear and the buttons are straightforward to use. There is a good length of lead on the external probe, and comes with a little bracket to fit the probe so that it away from the surface its mounted to. Comes with a built in stand, and provision for wall hanging.

This unit is so good I bought a second one for use in an outbuilding and they are both very accurate and far more reliable than all the wireless options.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Accurate, 28 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This thermometer is quite poorly made, feels like its made to too tight a budget, but more importantly on the one I had the temperature was about 3 degrees C out of accurate (compared to a three other accurate thermometers) and the temperature difference between the unit and the exterior probe was about 2 degrees with the probe right next to the unit. This inaccuracy didn't leave me with any confidence in the thermometer and I returned it, and bought a more expensive one, which is way better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality., 17 Aug. 2014

Very good quality screen protectors. Well worth the comparatively high cost. I am still on my first one, after about a year of use. Really easy to fit, and very durable.
