2.0 out of 5 stars Poor fit and thin material. Poor value., 13 Oct. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The stated UK size is at least one whole size greater than the actual size. The strap has a generous velcro length but I still couldn't tighten it enough with the larger sizing. The slipper material is thin and I got cold feet sometimes. The thin material means little foot support or protection from knocks.

2.0 out of 5 stars Aesthetically pleasing but functionaly compromised, 6 Jan. 2017

WEATHER FORECAST
In my opinion it is misleading to claim this clock displays the weather. It has temperature and humidity sensors that record the conditions in the room. No claim is made for a barometric sensor that might give some indication of outside weather changes. Yet the weather display shows sun and clouds so re-inforcing the impression that outside weather is being forecast.
Half the screen is taken with the useless weather symbols and the distracting, animated temperature trend. The temperature trend follows the on/off programme of any central heating present!
Although the day of the week is indicated the full date would be a better use of the space wasted by the weather display.
Displaying room temperature and humidity is useful but they are not 'weather'.

DISPLAY
The display on this clock is heavily biased for desktop use! It is unlikely to suit bedside use unless the bed viewpoint is higher than the clock. Similarly the clock is not suitable for the living room where your sitting position puts your eye level even slightly lower than the clock screen.
However, on the desktop you can look down at the screen at a sharp angle. You can even stand up and still see the display clearly! The supplied stand tilts the screen backwards a little which emphasises the need for a higher viewpoint to read the screen.

The display is very sharp and clear. It is also very bright when powered by the USB lead so for bedroom use battery powered is the best option.

SET UP
The time settings are not radio controlled so have to be setup manually.
Setting the time, date and alarms is not too complex except that the little slip of instructions with minute printing makes that process as confusing as possible. So put the batteries in and don't rely on mains power only because if you disconnect you lose all settings and have to start again.

CONCLUSION
I liked the sharpness and clarity of the display. The clean sharp lines and landscape layout of the clock. It has a modern, appealing design.
If you want a desktop clock and can forgive half the screen being occupied by pointless weather symbols then this a nice clock. However, the limitation of the vertical angle visibility below the screen rule it out for more general use.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good micro-USB cable that performs well at a reasonable price, 22 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ultric has offered a small free gift in return for writing a review. I have attempted to give an objective review which reflects my true opinion.

The first thing I noticed about this connector is that the micro-USB plug makes a snug, solid connection with the socket on the device. I have used the connector on a Samsung S2 which has a rather battered micro-USB socket which has caused erratic connections with other cables but the Ultric plug maintained a consistent connection.

I haved charged several devices in fast, 2.4A and the slower 1A and have found the charging speed no different from my other connectors of a different, more expensive make.

I have transferred data from 3 different devices to my PC with the Ultric cable and found the transfer speed as fast as the other makes of connector I have used.

I didn't do timed tests, I just didn't perceive any difference.

So the Ultric 2m Micro-USB cable performs well but the other requirement of a cable is durability. This purchase was a replacement for a cable whose outer cover had cracked at the junction between cable and the micro-USB moulding. I am hoping this replacement will last longer

I haven't owned the Ultric cable long enough to asses its durability but comparing the cable to a more expensive version I notice the moulding around the metal plugs is not as thick or as long as the one on the more expensive cable. Also the more expensive cable has a thicker covering along its length than the Ultric one. This would suggest that the Ultric cable is likely to be less durable than more expensive cables but only time and usage will tell.
In summary the Ultric cable performs very well and if it proves durable tool then it is good value.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good headset until an earphone broke, 12 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sound quality was good at this price. The Bluetooth connection worked well. Answering phone calls worked well. Although the headset felt robust the right earphone cracked at the headband join and the wires broke.
