Stainless steel teapot tea infuser/ strainer with lid/base

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a great design, 13 April 2016
Good Capacity but overall a poor design. The capacity means that it makes a pretty nice cup of tea .

The mesh is folded to get the shape and tea leaves get caught in these folds, making it difficult to clean. The shape of the teapot looks nice but means that the drip tray doesn't clip on top, which is a good feature of other infusers. I had hoped to use this with a teapot as well a cup, but the teapot shape does not sit well into a teapot. Fine for a tall mug.

1.0 out of 5 stars Steer clear - unreliable, terrible interface, slow, 23 Jan. 2016
Steer clear. Seriously. I can't remember using such a poorly thought out piece of technology.

I set this up following the instructions. All pretty straightforward, then found that by following the instructions the security wasn't set up and had to start again. It took a lot of experimentation to get everything running. None of the documentation helped.Help web pages were out of date and incorrect.

Then I connected from Mac and Windows. This was very revealing. Some functionality works when connecting some connecting from PC other functionality when connecting from mac but I can never get everything running on both. Half the time the PC will not authenticate which means I cannot access the secure shares. Since the last firmware update I can only connect on PC via the web interface.

I set iTunes up on it, and connection is intermittent at best, which causes problems because if iTunes is open and can't connect to the share it tries to set up folders on your local drive. Even when I have checked the drive connection, I can be halfway through a download and the connection will drop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only screen guard I could find that fits, 21 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Begrudgingly I have to admit that this product is actually very good. It is the third screen guard I have tried for the Smartwatch 3. The other two did not fit the chamfered edge of the screen and either peeled off or collected dust.

This one is fiddly and annoying to fit, you get a spray and you need to let the guard set. After a day any air bubbles disappear nicely, although there are some ripples left in the surface of the one I fitted. The fit dimensions are perfect. It has a softer surface than usual screen guards but it's surprising resilient. I have caught the the watch face a few times on hard surfaces. The screen guard shows no scratches at all despite the trauma, and I suspect other makes would have scratched or chipped under the same use.

Just a tip. When you apply the screen guard, remove the watch face from it's strap, apply and let the skin dry and set first before putting the strap back on, otherwise the edges get caught on the casing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good quality - not sure of fit to watch, 9 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On the good side, clearly a very good quality and a very precise size cut to the edges of the watch screen. It was very easy to apply and fit within the edges of the strap. If you get one I suggest removing the watch body from the strap before applying.

On the bad side it does not take into account the chamfer around the edge of the screen which means it does not stick down at the edges. This results in an odd appearance and looks like it could catch or lift at any time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't cover the chamfer, 9 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The screen is cut to fit right to the edge, either too generously or extremely precisely. This causes two problems:

There is a chamfer around the edges of the Smartwatch 3 screen. The screenguard comes up proud on these leaving a gap between guard and screen.

The screen guard edges catch on the strap casing. Combined with the first problem I found that the screen guard kept lifting off.

It took me four attempts to get a screen guard applied. If you buy this I suggest removing the watch body from the strap first.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor screen and headphone jack doesn't work, 25 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Terrible case.

The LG G3 has been notorious for headphone output problems - just google LG G3 headphones issue. From the forums it appears to be a combination of the headphone socket and the underlying software. Some headphones / headsets work, some do not. In order to maintain the water / dust resistance this case has an adapter that screws in. Sound is distorted using it and corrupted so badly it is unusable.

The built in screen guard / film is quite loose and reduces the sensitivity of the screen. Having used other similar waterproof cases on other phones with similar screen protectors this is not a problem if they fit closely to the phone.

Great design - both in terms of looks and functionality. You can hold it in the palm and flip bottle tops off one-handed. It was very useful at a busy party.

One of Prince's most beautiful songs, but just don't watch the film. It is trite and ruins the song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chunky Lightning Connector, 14 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far it has worked perfectly. The Lightning connector is a little chunky which means it doesn't fit with a case on the phone. A bit of a pain taking the phone out of its case every time you charge, so bear in mind depending on the iPhone case you have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat, great all-round protection, 14 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good case - It has a low form-factor but gives really good coverage and protection. The open / close functionality is really nice, especially if you have a passcode set because it's very quick and easy to lock.
