Tucano Filo Case for Apple iPhone 6 - Black
Tucano Filo Case for Apple iPhone 6 - Black
Price: £21.26

3.0 out of 5 stars Stylish case, but makes the phone bulky. Stand feature is disappointing., 10 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just got mine today, and I'm a little underwhelmed.

I take issue with the claim: "With just one gesture the case turns into a handy tilt free landscape stand". That "one gesture" involves snapping the phone out of 2 of the corner bumpers that hold it in place, and there's no way to do this without feeling like you're about to break the spine of the cover. Then you find that you need to bend the case a bit before the iPhone will stand up... it doesn't naturally form the stand position, I think over time this will all get easier, but I was disappointed more effort hadn't been put into this aspect of the design.

Secondly, the packaging advertises that it carries credit cards (plural). It's a neoprene inner cover that *will* stretch, but with more than one card, the case doesn't close very neatly. Also, given the location of the magnetic clasp, I think it would be reckless to put an actual credit card in there. I put my Oyster (RFID) card there instead.

The magnetic cover is a neat idea, but do be aware that the iPhone does not behave like the iPad... closing the cover does not lock your screen. I knew this in advance, but many might not realise this.

On the positive side, the case is very sturdy and the materials are very high quality, and there's no doubt that this will protect your entire iPhone, particularly the screen. The front of the case flips right around the back, and although holding the iPhone for a call feels a little odd at first, you do get used to it. The outside of the case is very smooth, and therefore the phone slides easily in to (mens!) jeans pocket or a suit pocket. And out of the pocket, I think it looks very stylish.

The case does add to the overall size though - 2mm to the height, 3mm to the width and 3mm to the thickness. That last one is quite significant, as it takes the phone from 7mm to 10mm, a 40% approx increase. If you bought the regular iPhone 6 for the unobtrusive way it fits in your pocket, you may be disappointed with this case. Also the hard edges of the case make it more visible in a trouser pocket than the smooth curves of the iPhone itself. However, you can throw your phone in a bag or backpack and never worry that it will be damaged. I do this an use Bluetooth headphones to use the phone (and later this year, the Apple Watch!).

Stunning performance, exactly as described and well worth the money if you have large files to copy in a hurry.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware! - These become obsolete very quickly., 5 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The biggest problem with this, and all TP-Link items, is that you can pretty much guarantee it will be obsolete within 6 months. For an item like this, (a Powerline Ethernet starter kit) it's a particular problem as subsequent models are not backwards compatible.

I bought the starter kit only a couple of months ago, but not find that the individual plugs are no longer available, except from one joker on Amazon UK who is selling them for £5,002 each!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Patchy performance., 5 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Performance is poor - I have one camera connected to a good quality PoE Switch (Netgear Pro), yet the camera frequently locks up and stops recording anything, forcing a complete reset. Worse, there is nothing to indicate the camera has failed - you simply find out one day while browsing through the video archive, and wonder why there have been no captures.

Contacted Y-Cam's support centre, but they take ages to reply, and have not so far been able to help.

Not impressed.

Fantastic keyboard. Key touch is better than Apple's aluminium Bluetooth keyboards, and yet this one is also back lit. Battery life is good, and the ability to switch to different computers (or tablets/laptops) is the icing on the cake.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not connect to PS4, 15 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mainly bought this to connect to the PS4. I have it plugged in to the same router via Ethernet, and the Vita TV has a 70Mbps Internet connection. It also has a local IP address. I managed to download Minecraft from the PSN Store with no trouble.

But when I try PS4 Link, it starts by saying "Searching Internet" instead of "Searching Nearby" like my handheld PS Vita does. I've also tried switching to WiFi but no success. It hangs with the message "Searching Internet"

I think this is a glitch in the software, but I honestly can't rate this higher than a 1 until this is fixed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak spot causes camera to fall over., 18 July 2014
Only suitable for a very small light camera. This tripod has a weak spot, which is the ball joint at the very top which holds the camera - it's just too loose, and although the legs are very steady, the camera just keeps falling over.

3.0 out of 5 stars Let down by poor picture quality, 13 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Picture quality is quite poor. Advertised here on Amazon as a remastered edition, but I suspect otherwise. There's no mention on the packaging that it's a remastered edition, there's dot crawl everywhere and the picture actually shakes noticeably throughout the entire film. Some scenes are even slightly out of focus!

However, the sound is reasonably good, the film is the unedited version, and it comes with a ton of special features, which I understand the other Blu-ray does not.

Special Features:

* "Scramble City" Japanese exclusive bonus episode
* Interview with Story Consultant Flint Dille
* Q&A with voice of Optimus Prime, Peter Cullen
* 80's toy TV Commercials, TV Spots and theatrical trailer
* "The Touch" film clip (by Stan Bush)
* Character, voice actor and musician biographies
* Commentary sound tracks for main feature and extras
* Deleted Scenes
* Animated Storyboards
* Bonus Episode of Transformers: Beast Wars
