1.0 out of 5 stars Very Low Quality! AVOID!, 11 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Broke the first time I used it! Complete waste of time!
I tried to use it to fit a toilet, I turned the screwdriver about 3 or 4 times and there was then a crunch sound and the thing seized up.
Never got to try in on a drill.

Fantastic book. Charles Petzold is a famous author of course in the MS Windows world so it's great to have such a "big hitter" involved in the Xamarin scene!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great design let down by low build quality., 5 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice keyboard and it's great that you never need to worry about the batteries.
So from a design point of view it's great, but the build quality is not so good.
I've bought three of these now and on all three the plastic top keeps peeling away.
It always seems to start at the top right hand corner.
Maybe I just need to get some strong contact adhesive oro somthing and glue it on properly, but I did expect better from a £55 keyboard from Logitech.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy suitcases by mail order!, 5 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these cases to try to combat the ever reducing baggage allowance included with a package holiday.
Well I can honestly say that these cases are indeed very light but unfortunately this reduced weight comes at a high price. The build quality of the case is rock bottom. It is basically just a frame surrounded by one layer of fairly thin material and with plastic pulls on the zips.
The main problem here is that there is just a single layer of material separating your belongings from the outside world. Now I've had cases arrive with tears and cuts in them but as there are normally several layers of material and cardboard or wood, the contents have never been lost.
If that were to happen with these cases, then it's highly unlikely that everything you packed will still be inside the case when it reaches the other end. I also doubt these cases would last many such trips and, as I travel often, would need to be replaced often.
I reported this to Amazon and the seller and the seller made me pay to return them as they were not "Faulty" but the word "Faulty" is a matter of opinion here as in my opinion they are faulty by design because they will not survive many trips abroad via standard UK baggage handlers and are therefore not fit for purpose. Please bear in mind that I did not return these cases because I had changed my mind, I needed three new cases and ended up having to pay to return these and still make a trip to a department store and buy some there instead.
After this experience I will be very reluctant to buy anything from the Amazon marketplace again as there is the risk of poor quality products and an unfair and expensive returns process. I ended up £20 out of pocket and with no cases and bought some from the high street instead. I will stick to products sold directly by Amazon in future as their return policy is far more shopper friendly.
I would recommend to anyone else who is considering buying these cases that it is probably not a good idea to buy suitcases via mail order unless you can return them for free if you are not happy with the quality when they arrive. I guess it’s common sense really but I assumed (wrongly) that Amazon monitor the quality of the products sold their website.
