Zonewire® WHITE FLIP LEATHER CASE COVER FOR SONY XPERIA Z1 SCREEN PROTECTOR & CLOTH
Zonewire® WHITE FLIP LEATHER CASE COVER FOR SONY XPERIA Z1 SCREEN PROTECTOR & CLOTH
Offered by Smartphonez UK
Price: £0.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Initially OK but falls apart!, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This fits fine and looks good. It provides adequate protection but after 6 weeks of use, I was finding that every time I opened the flip, the screen of my phone was covered in dusty residue from the soft inner coating of the flip.
If you can standing wiping the screen before every use then fine, but for me this became unbearable and so it went in the bin.

1.0 out of 5 stars Looks OK but no durability, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this and fitted it in May
One month on and the plastic retaining clips that secure it to the iPAD are cracked and as a result it now falls off.
The plastic is brittle and unsuitable for this use
The cover is good and works fine with the magnetic sensor sleep mode.
I would not buy this again as it only lasted a month and has never been dropped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fit, good value, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item fits perfectly, and provides that edge protection it needs.
I've had this fitted for 3 months now.
Easy to fit, doesn't fall off, and doesn't go all loose and rubbery like so many.

Samsonite Aramon 2 Laptop Sleeve V51016 41275
Samsonite Aramon 2 Laptop Sleeve V51016 41275

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent sleeve with above average protection, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this for a ASUS G750 laptop which is a 17".3" model but due to its thickness (V high spec model), there are not other sleeves that seem to fit it from the 17" ranges.
This is wider that snug, but the depth and thickness is a decent fit and it provides protection from those scuffs and gentle knocks and spills. Don't think for a minute this will provide drop protection.
For the RRP, it is expensive. For the sub £10 I paid, it is great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great protective case for the N-3DS XL, 29 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not much to say really except that this is all but identical to the genuine case you can buy with the N-3DS XL however it is a fraction of the price and in my view just as good.
Thoroughly recommended and prompt delivery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value battery - although short of perfect, 29 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
TO be fair, the original battery on my D7000 is fine and it lasts for several hundred snaps and so I have not yet got to a situation where I have needed to use 2 batteries in one day. This said, having a spare is just sensible - especially if like me you forget to charge your primary one it before going out!.
So, I wanted a spare battery and bought this.
It is hard to fully assess the capacity without taking loads of pictures in exactly the same circumstances as the original one. I have to some extent used both and have reached the conclusion that this cheaper replacement doesn't have quite the same capacity as the original however it isn't far off it and for the difference in money I would recommend it as a great back-up.
As to how long it's overall life it, I cannot really comment as only time will tell.
For £15, I'd thoroughly recommend it though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb machine. Efficient and effective, 29 April 2012
I have owned mine for about a week now. It replaced a budget Tricity Bendix that I avoiding using wherever possible due to its high running costs.
This beast cost me almost 3x as much as my Tricity Bendix and I bought it from Very who offer 10% off the first order making it £570 - and then Bosch are offering £100 cash-back until early May making it £470 - so now it is a reasonable price!
This is a condensing dryer will just about all the trimmings including a moisture sensor, an interior light, delay start timer, a high level water collection reservoir, a self cleaning condenser (brilliant), and a heat pump design - this last feature being the best part.
The heat pump is very different from your standard dryer design. A standard dryer design is essentially a hot air heater that blows all over the wet washing in a revolving drum. These designs are generally expensive to run as they are inefficient as you'll know (if you've owned one) as they also heat up the room. They can have an energy efficiency of B at best, but more usually C or worse. The very expensive standard heat design models only vary inasmuch as some manage to re-cycle some heat better than others.
The heat pump design however is totally different. It has a reverse air conditioner inside that heats inside the drum, and cools the condenser to that it dehumidifies the air entering the drum and heats it too. Essentially it can recycle all of its heated air as it is able to draw the water from it similarly to a bedroom window on a cold night. They are the only design of dryer that offers an A+++ efficiency rating.
If you look at the actual figures, these designs use about 1/3 of the power of a B efficiency model an a lot more that the C or worse models. In monetary terms, that is likely to equate to more than £100 a year saving (average use) which justifies the higher price in my mind. Also, as it does not use a traditional 'hot wire' heater inside, it gives me far more faith that it will not catch light one night on a delay start!
One slight draw-back is the fact it does make some noises including a changing variety similar to a louder version of a fridge pump, a high efficiency fan (to cool the pump, a whirr (condenser cleaner) and an occasional pop (the valve on the water reservoir). Nothing that bothers me and the instructions do explain this to avert worries! Oh, and the instructions are not very well presented - in fact they are pants but luckily the machine is fairly easy to use once you get your head around it!
I've used it, I really like it and I'd recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely useless. AVOID, 23 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have purchased 4 sets of magnetic L plates now. I bought 2 of these particular ones. Thus far, every set have been blown off and been lost. These particular ones are probably the worst to date to date where the maximum speed we drove at was 40mph and they had all vanished within 3 miles. I had two on the bonnet, and one on each side (rear of car is all glass so a sticky one was the only option).
I've now done a little research and have come to realise that the ones (such as this specific set) that are affixed by a thin magnetic strip at the top and bottom of the L plate are destined to fail every time. Seriously folks - just do not bother! You may as well toss the cash out of the car window as this is exactly what you'll be doing by buying this rubbish.
I've now ordered the type that are one entire sheet of magnetic material (usually called 'fully magnetic' but check their definition of this first if not explained).
In Summary: AVOID

5.0 out of 5 stars Use your old style Xbox360 HDD with ease!, 19 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item is spot-on. It is easy to use and enabled me to utilise my old Xbox360 HDD to upgrade a 4Gb new machine with my 120Gb HDD complete with old games saves. Saved me a lot of money. Highly recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Great - but WARNING - it has a fault, 19 Jun. 2011
Lovely phone. Great screen. Great functionality. One fault though. Is seems it will occasionally lock up and will not come out of stand-by. The only way to rectify this is to remove the battery and re-start it. It only does this when WiFi is left on so it can be avoided but nonetheless, it is a design fault that Samsung are doing nothing about resolving. Worth bearing in mind as it is a pain in the proverbial!
