Beaumont Polka Dot Flute Case - Pink

Price: £24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cute design!, 26 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cute design for the young or young at heart..! Fits my 1970s Regent flute (C foot) with a little wiggle room. So far seems good quality, zips are sturdy. Good replacement for an old-school hard case. Pocket fits a rod and slim rolled cloth but not much else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Metric users - 2 feet isn't as long as you think it is, 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hub is fine, I like the minimalist design. Good weight too and comes with a velcro pad if you need to stick it down (or up) to something. Haven't had any problems with connecting multiple devices - it charges my phone no problem and reads my My Passport external drive.

Unfortunately I found the cable to be way too short, my PC is under my desk and as I was brought up with metric, I didn't realise that 2 feet wouldn't even reach my tower. This is not Anker's fault of course, just a warning as you may need to shell out a bit more and buy an extension cable if your tower/machine isn't right next to where the hub will be.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little fiddly but does take a lot of weight, 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A little fiddly to fit, especially getting the exact width right, but OK once it's in. Takes a large heavy gaming tower. If you haven't got the width juuuust right it will be loose, so measure the gap carefully. The fit should be firm (not too tight squeeze, of course) enough for the tower to not swing from side to side.


Case-Mate Barely Case for Sony Xperia Z3 Compact - Black
Case-Mate Barely Case for Sony Xperia Z3 Compact - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes glass-backed phone less slippery, looks good, 10 May 2016
Bought for the Xperia Z3 Compact, which while a pretty phone is backed with glass and as such is notoriously "slippery". This case has a nice soft-touch matte finish which has instantly eliminated my concerns about dropping it or it sliding off the table, without being ungainly like a thick rubber case. The cutouts for power button, volume buttons, camera and camera button, and most importantly a strip for the magnetic charger, are all in the right place. The case fits snugly, hard to get off but then you're not supposed to keep taking it off. I haven't (don't dare!) tested it extensively on protection but as most phones break at the corner when dropped, having this case over the corners at least provides peace of mind there. Combine with a tempered glass screen such as rptPThink® 0.3mm Ultra-thin Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Sony Xperia Z3 Compact (Not for Z3) with 9H Hardness/Anti-scratch/Fingerprint resistant (Sony Xperia Z3 Compact) for another barely-noticeable layer of protection.

1.0 out of 5 stars Had high hopes, 28 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had high hopes for this one but unfortunately it just didn't work for us. We hoped that something like this might stop our cat from howling for food at 4am. Sadly that just hasn't worked, the cat is terrified of it and won't go near it.
Problems: The thing is HUGE, much bigger than the pictures imply, make sure you make sure you have a 12" square space available for it.
It's noisy enough to wake us up when it does its thing, it's silent when it's not moving to a new section but when it does you get WHIRRRRR.... CLICK... BZZZZZZZ.... BANG BANG BANG (sounds like tapping on a microphone? noise is from the speaker) which wakes us up and scares the cat into keeping away from it.
It's a royal pain in the ass to fill and clean, you need to literally yank the bits apart and I'm always afraid I'll break them. It's then hard to put back together as some bits "clip" in and some bits just apparently lie on top of each other without any kind of fastening. Still haven't worked out whether I'm putting the sliding "lid" thing on correctly or not.
The instructions are terrible, the pictures are in greyscale so are incomprehensible (particularly for putting it back together again). Some of the labels for the pictures are just plain wrong. The written instructions for programming it are not intuitive.
The tiny LDC display is not backlit so is unreadable - so you're either lying on the floor or lifting the huge heavy unit up to the counter to program it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute design, 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very cute design, internal dividers can be taken out. Ideal for children or adult beginner sewers who don't need huge boxes of kit and just need somewhere to put their scissors and spools of thread. Outer is water resistant pvc-like stuff. Slightly poorer quality but fine for the price, good starter box before you need to upgrade to a bigger one.

Absolutely delighted. I have zero experience sewing (aside from the mandatory single term for 'Design and technology' at school) and I was afraid this would be hard to use. It really isn't, if I can do it, so can you!
There is an instructional DVD included, unfortunately we couldn't make it work but we found the video on YouTube. The video was very useful for creating bobbins, threading the needle, changing the needle and all those basics.
Portable enough to move into the cupboard easily and doesn't take up much space. Comes with some bobbins, spare needles and some extra feet for advanced projects.
I've only used the simple settings so far of course so I can't speak to its advanced functions (it does buttonholes and things), but once you get the hang of it it's great to be able to, say, hem your own trousers in under 20 minutes, rather than take them to the overpriced tailor down the road. Sure, your first few goes will be a bit wonky, just use scrap cloth to test all your settings first.

EDIT: Unfortunately after a week one of the sticks stopped working, not even with an error message just not picked up any more in any DIMM. Returned for refund.

Installed in 5 minutes, immediate obvious speed and performance boost, passes tests. Nothing to complain about.

Good quality, strong metal. Comes with Allen Key to adjust. Worth spending the extra pennies over a cheap plastic one for one that won't damage the desk with sticky pad residue.
