4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly does what it says, BUT .., 26 Mar. 2014

Don't expect to find a case that you don't have to remove every single time you want to use this dock .. and that even goes for the astonishingly slim Roxfit Side Opening Book Case for Sony Xperia Z1 Compact - Carbon Black.

Other than the obvious lack of coordination / forethought on the case front, I really can't fault this product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice case, BUT ..., 20 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
... a real shame that a that little extra consideration wasn't given to the design, because a single relatively small modification would have allowed it to be used with in conjunction with the DK32 magnetic charging dock.

That said, this cover really is a quality product that offers sturdy protection for the back and corners, whilst the extraordinarily slim carbon fibre front cover protects the screen well, leaves all the ports fully accessible, reduces bulk in the pocket and maintains the phone's lovely slender profile.

There are no regrets about this purchase and, had it not been for the inability to use the use the Sony DK32 Z1 Compact Charging Dock for Smartphone without first removing the cover (a fault that appears to be common to all the available covers for the Z1 Compact) I would have had no hesitation in making this a five star review.

NOTE: there is no magnetic clasp for the cover - for me personally, because my pocket achieves that just fine and it significantly reduces bulk, that is a huge positive; but you may want to keep that in mind if the ability to securely hold the front cover closed in a bag is an essential requirement.

6 MONTHS ON:

1 - The case is still as good as new and shows no signs of wear and tear.

2 - I've had no problems with compass interference.

3 - Touchscreen Sensor interference isn't a problem, PROVIDED you keep both the screen and the inside of the cover clean .. but this in turn leads on to the one minor bugbear ...

4 - The felt-like inside of the front cover is a bit of a magnet for dust and grease from the screen and environment - which in turn means that, over time, every time you close the cover, it transfers this grease and dust back on to the screen (which then in turn makes the screen hard to view in bright light and interferes with the touchscreen sensors). This is easily remedied by giving the inside of the front cover a quick light scrub with a nail brush and soapy water.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to install and every bit as good as the original keyboard., 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this as a replacement for the original keyboard, on a Toshiba Satellite L500, that had given up the ghost and was causing all manner of start-up problems, and I am delighted with it.

You are probably worried about the quality of this product - well don't be; because in terms of look, feel, fit and quality, it is every bit as good as the original .. and not only could it not be any easier to install, but it will save you a small fortune in professional repair costs.

If you are unsure how to go about removing your old keyboard and installing a new one, simply Google "How to replace a Toshiba [insert model number] laptop keyboard" and you will find any number of simple step-by-step on-line guides and videos .. and it really is no more complicated than releasing the plastic bevel along the top edge of the keyboard, unscrewing four screws and connecting the keyboard ribbon cable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Confident and powerful, 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flowers (MP3 Download)
I start this with two declarations: firstly that my music collection already contains a disproportionately large assortment of Icelandic music, and secondly that I purchased this album knowing that I was already a huge fan of Sindri Már Sigfússon … both in his Sin Fang guise, as a solo artist, and also as the front man of Seabear.

So, on to the actual album. Flowers really is the most appropriate name for this album, because this genuinely is the full and rich blossoming of something that was already teasing with so much promise. There is no lurch in a new direction and the complex, but comely, layering of sounds that we have grown to expect is still there; but there is a new, immaculate and truly consuming depth of aural beauty .. and just how much of this is down to Sindri Már Sigfússon's own development as an artist, and just how much of it is down to the unmistakeable production input of Alex Somers (Sigur Rós / Jónsi / Jónsi & Alex) is open to debate, but it is a collaboration that works spectacularly well.

If there is one picky criticism, then it is that 'Feel See', the fifth track, nudges into a territory of pretentious overproduction that jars a little and detracts from the beauty of what is otherwise a delightfully delicate and sentimental track; but this really is just a fleeting interruption in what is a most pleasingly confident and powerful album.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really up to scratch, 2 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case really isn't up to the standards of similar cases I have purchased elsewhere. It is very poor quality, very thin (the 'leather' bit of it is less than 1 millimetre in thickness and offers little protection) and it is debatable whether it is even made of the advertised leather.

In my case, I simply wanted a red cover to be able to quickly tell my two Sony TIPOs apart, so in that sense this case serves that purpose - but if you want a decent case, stick to one of the many similarly priced black cases that are available from other Amazon vendors, because they are streets ahead in the quality, feel and protection they offer against accidental knocks and drops.

4.0 out of 5 stars Replacement PA3714E-1AC3, 21 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a laptop AC adapter, it is exactly as illustrated and it works.

You are probably wondering whether or not this really is a genuine Toshiba product. The honest answer is that I just don't know .. but what I do know is that the adapter does not appear to have been produced for the UK market, that the 2.5 mm DC power connector is an indifferent fit, that the adapter was clearly produced on a different production line (and from different component parts) to my other OEM PA3714E-1AC3 units and that it isn't labelled either as any of the other OEM PA3714E-1AC3 units already in my possession or any of those adapters I could have sourced from official Toshiba outlets.

None of this means that it is obviously not a genuine Toshiba part - it could have been produced for a different market, or Toshiba could have modified the design or switched manufactures / component suppliers - but, if I am honest, this is of little consequence to me personally: the seller's service was quick and efficient, the product works as it should and it clearly isn't shoddy .. and, more importantly, it cost me £15.99 (plus p+p), as against the truly extortionate 15 to 25% of original purchase price of my laptop that I would have been asked to pay through certain other online retailers and the official high street Toshiba outlets that I price-checked.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true delight, 9 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Learning (MP3 Download)
For me, the purchase of this album was a case of coming back to fill in the gaps after finding myself well and truly captivated by Put Your Back N 2 It, Mike Hadreas' / Perfume Genius' magnificent follow-up album.

And how glad am I that I came exploring? This is a tremendously comely and intimate collection of doleful, yet unexpectedly uplifting, hymns to life in the rear-view mirror. What a true delight to discover such a bewitching collection of songs that haven't been (over) produced to within an inch of recognisability; so had it not been for buying Put Your Back N 2 It, I would probably be sat here telling you that this is the best album I have purchased in many a long year .. but as it is I will have to settle for telling you that it is a work of genius that is bettered only by its follow-up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure brilliance, 9 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mike Hadreas (aka Perfume Genius) has the ability to make homophobes see red - and much of the online comment that has been generated about this young man is driven by consummate homophobia - but it is many a year since I have been as excited about a new album as I am by Put Your Back N 2 It.

This is a staggeringly beautiful and intimate collection of unashamedly mournful and sense-awakening songs by an astonishingly talented artist. That he achieves this without also coming across as being nauseatingly self-indulgent only serves to attest to the true brilliance of this young man.

Update: Almost ten months later and this album has continued to soar in my estimation and maintain its place as a recurrent favourite in my playlists. Forgive me for gushing, but Mike Hadreas really does have a most breathtaking talent.
