3.0 out of 5 stars Retaining screws may need adjustment to prevent bending or falling out, 27 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As mentioned by other reviews, the metal pins bend easily. Furthermore, some reviewers have mentioned that pins fall out.
Some of this may be due to the four retaining screws for the plates, which hold pins in place. If too tight, the pins don't move easily. If too slack, the pins can drop out, as happened with mine on initial use. It's simple to replace the pin(s) and tighten the screws, although this should not be necessary, hence only three stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect fit, great price, 19 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great value to replace my previous open-face protector.
Fits my Xperia Z2 perfectly. Snapped into the black plastic holder very firmly.
The stylus has a peg which fits into the headphone socket, but then flaps around on the outside, so I've abandoned that, even though it works well.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They are cheap and for ten, great value.
I have a 12V power supply in the kitchen and used a T10 socket to check them and reverse polarity if necessary. Then marked the + leg with a red marker pen.
Intalled in the car, they are bright and sharp white. Time will tell as to their durability, so may change to 5* later.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The centre (between terminals) is solid and won't go into a Ford fusebox socket. I cut out the soft plastic between the spade terminals, to the main body of the adapter and now they fit properly.
They may fit other car makers' fuse boxes, but both of mine are Fords.

Although this Foam Lance appears to be very well made, it only fits some models of Bosch pressure washer. It does NOT fit the Bosch AQT 33-11 Pressure Washer.

The sleep mask was not for me, but for my mother. However, as far as I'm aware she's very satisfied with it, since it was a reasonable price delivered very quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good service, despite a missing component initially, 17 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good service, despite a missing component initially.

The product arrived on time, from Barcelona. However, the inverter appeared to be missing, so I emailed them.

The response was fast, courteous and helpful, stating that the inverter would be in the post as soon as possible. I got a notification the same day that it had been posted. Sure enough it arrived a couple of days later, and works perfectly.

It glows with an attractive uniform pale blue. There is a protective film over the illuminating surface which could be left in place, but the surface of the EL panel seems to be very tough, so the film is probably not necessary.

Some experimentation shows that it will illuminate from 3.5 V up to 12 V, although the illumination at 3.5 V is not very bright. Voltages from 5 to 12 V appear to work equally well and any difference is not apparent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to install and use., 17 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product arrived by the due date, at my specified Amazon locker, where I collected it the same day.

As mentioned by other reviewers, the four LEDs are extremely bright and the detection zone is at least 30 feet (not tried it at a great distance yet). The daylight detection works well and the light does not operate until well into dusk.

Since it was for use as a garage drive security light, and I have mains power there, I removed the batteries (four size-D, in series, total 6V) and wired it to a spare 5V/500mA mains adapter plug.

It works perfectly and I now no longer need to keep changing batteries, rechargeable or otherwise. A side-effect of the slightly lower voltage appears to be that the delay to switch off is now 40 seconds not 30, which is no problem whatever.


C2G 4-Port USB 2.0 Aluminium Hub
C2G 4-Port USB 2.0 Aluminium Hub
Price: £24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but worth it ..., 19 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived on time and, although expensive, is worth the price.

After some weeks use, I can say that it's much more solid than my other hubs and, importantly, the seating is both positive (i.e. connects well) and retention is firm (i.e. won't wobble or fit poorly).

I'm not sure how useful the power adapter is, because it seems to work as well even without it, although I haven't done a speed test yet. I guess you might want to use it if you "daisy chain" up to the permitted 127 devices, rather than draw the power from your PC USB port!
