Willis Judd Mens Black Titanium Magnetic Bracelet In Black Velvet Gift Box + Free Link Removal Tool
Willis Judd Mens Black Titanium Magnetic Bracelet In Black Velvet Gift Box + Free Link Removal Tool
Offered by Willis Judd
Price: £29.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks great and it is SO light!, 24 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased with the look and quality of the bracelet. It was easy to remove the required number of links with the supplied tool for a perfect fit. The only thing I have a problem with is the clasp: difficult and fiddly to close and even more difficult to release. Once on, because it is so light, I am unaware of it and it doesn't snag or get caught on things.

I bought this lamp to see clearly the intricate jewellery that I make. It is a sturdy, easy to use excellent piece of equipment which I would now never be without. I would recommend it for any intricate work.


Apple Airport Extreme 802.11n 5th Generation
Apple Airport Extreme 802.11n 5th Generation

5.0 out of 5 stars Problem solved!, 28 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With two iMacs, an iPod, an iPad and an Apple TV I was having constant problems with wifi stability and connections dropping out, Airplay working on one device but not another, every combination you can think of. I tried all the tips suggested on forums without any success but a few contributors mentioned that after installing an Airport Express or Extreme the problem disappeared. So I bought one and YES, the problem has gone with everything working consistently all the time. I simply connected it with an ethernet cable to my existing wifi router and the setup was quick and simple.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good-looking performer!, 28 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had to have a white sound plinth to fit in with our completely white decor so the choice for research was severely restricted. However, having made a shortlist I then visited several specialists to listen to as many as I could, including a few which weren't available in white! The Canton stood out markedly from everything else, apart from the non-white Sonos sound bar which was £200 more.

It looks good, discreet and stylish, solidly built (this is not a flimsy piece of kit) and generally I am very pleased with the sound for both music and TV. I used to have an amazing separates sound system filling up two cabinets with speakers (black) on top, but having converted to digital this was the final piece in the jigsaw to replace the two black speakers. Admittedly the sound is not as good as the old system, which cost thousands of pounds 30 years ago, but it is still good and takes up a tiny fraction of the space. The reason for not giving it 5 stars: the bass has been turned down to the minimum (it is graded from -6 to +6) as otherwise the boom-boom on some music tracks can be to some ears distracting/annoying. Having done that it is perfectly acceptable.

Although I purchased a TV wall bracket so that the plinth could sit below, I have ended up keeping the TV on one cabinet and the plinth 1.5 metres away on another cabinet (either side of the fireplace) and the sound perception works very well.

The remote control is solid and easy to use: it allows you to choose a setting to match the location of the plinth i.e. with the TV sitting on top, without the TV on top and located on a shelf; connecting with Bluetooth is straightforward; the Lip Synch feature is extremely useful.

In my opinion it is certainly worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars clear and easy to clean, 2 Aug. 2014

I use UV filters purely as protection for the lens and have had problems with smearing and blemishes to the extent that I then discard them. This filter is quite slim, clear and easy to clean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for essential piece of kit, 2 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Essential purchase as the Sony A7r camera body only comes with a lead to charge the battery whilst in the camera. The camera is very hungry for battery power so extra batteries are always handy. It is a well made product, the batteries perform well (lasting, so far, as long as the Sony one) and comes with two power leads, one UK and one EU.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too good to be true, 10 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It seemed such a good idea: one variable ND filter rather than several individual ones. My main problem in using it was the completely random hit and miss on auto-focussing, as through the lens it was often too dark to focus manually. I resorted to focussing with the filter rotated to it's lightest and then rotating back to the desired setting. Even then the results were not consistent.

I now use it for "creative" purposes only and have purchased a fixed ND filter instead.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very interesting book, substantial in size and weight, providing a lot of information about Kertesz in Hungary, Paris and New York. Many pictures are of a good size BUT so, so many are reproduced at contact size, almost thumbnails with acres of empty white page surrounding them. The descriptive wording talks in detail about the content of these pictures but it is impossible to appreciate due to the small size. A complimentary magnifying glass would have been useful!

For the money this is just great: nice solid feel and looks well made. Why pay more for the Canon version?
