HD Club | HDMI Cable | 9.8ft (3m) Digital Audio/Video/Data Connectors, Black with Grey Connectors, Version 1.4, 19 Pin-to-19 Pin connectors

I was kindly sent this cable at reduced cost to try it out and produce an honest review.

The cable.
This arrives in a sealed plastic bag.

Design..
This is a long 9.8Ft cable terminated with gold plated sockets.

Using.
It fits my DVD player and into my TV very well. The plugs are firm with no play or signs of looseness. The cable is plastic covered but still quite flexible.

Signal.
The picture quality is fine.

Overall.
A reasonably priced long HDMI cable that is well made and works very well. Happy to recommend if you need a longer HDMI cable.

Garden Hose, Homeme 100 Feet Newest Expandable Strongest Magic Hose Pipe with Solid Brass Fittings & 9-pattern Spray Nozzle (Black)

I was very kindly sent this hose at reduced cost to try and then produce and honest users review.

The hose.
This comes packed in a box. It will stretch up to 100 feet and comes with a variable spray trigger head.

Set up.
The fittings work with the standard UK hose attachments. The connection fitting is solid brass with a rubber washer. It is very well machined and did not leak at all unlike the previous plastic ones we have had.

Using.
The hose is constructed so that it stretches out so it quite compact when stored. The mechanism is guaranteed to work leak free for up to 1500 uses. It is light and easy to ruin and does not kink up like an ordinary hose pipe.
The multi spray head is well made and works well and allows full control over water spay and distribution. The trigger can be locked for unattended use like filling a pond.

Overall.
A nicely made hose using the best materials available. Easy to use and no leaks. Happy to recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The latest features in a compact TV box. An exccellent fast TV box., 23 July 2016
[2016 New Arrivals]SEGURO S1Pro Android TV Box Kodi 16.1 Fully Loaded Quad Core RK3229 1G/8G Android 5.1 Wifi Support 4K 10-bit 60fps H.265 Video Decoder LAN Miracast Video Playback Streaming Stick Media Player Pre-installed Add ons (S1 PRO)
I was very kindly sent this item free of charge to test it and provide and honest review.

What is it?
This is a quad core android operating system TV box. This box is capable of processing 4K signals and comes with the Android Lollipop 5.1 operating system. The box is loaded with features and will even process full 3D movies etc. It has a fast quad core CPU. It is KODI compatible (A universal media player). It has cable HDMI connections and Wi-Fi built in.

Sockets and connections.
4 USB,
1 X HDMI,
1 x Ethernet for cabled connection,
1 X SPDIF,
1X AV
1 X SD/MMC socket to read SD card or Micro SD cards (needs an adapter for Micro SD)

In the box.
The box contains, remote control, HDMI lead, remote control and PSU. These all come well packed in a nice looking retrial box. You will need to buy 2 X AAA batteries (not supplied) to use the remote.

Set up.
There are various ways of setting this up. I have opted for the cabled to my router method as I find wireless a bit hit and miss here, sometimes it works and other times it is so slow the picture and sound break up or lock altogether. Apart from a TV box this device has a card slot so films, music and pictures can be played from the card direct.
It connected to my LG TV via HDMI and the TV logged it in to it available sources with no input from me.

Using.
There are an awful lot of things you can play and download from the Google app store. I managed to get my Amazon Prime TV streaming to it without too much trouble. There are plenty of games available and being a quad core CPU this box will run them smoothly. It is certainly much faster than the built in smart part of my TV. Streaming is fast and reliable. Overall it performs very well and much better than my single core three year old box.
It also has 4 USB ports on the front so peripherals can be connected. It will also wireless link suitable keyboard and mice. This makes navigation of smart TV elements much easier and I would recommend this if you are using this box for entertainment.
On the side of the box there is also an SD card reader so you can play movies and display photos via nay of these cards. The remote is used to move forward and backwards through photos.
This box does it all in very high quality. The CPU really keeps up and there was never any sound and picture sync problem and never any drop out or frames freezing. This is a very capable box with all the latest 2016 developments in TV box technology. It even supports 60 fps material.

Overall.
This is a well-designed box that functions well with all the Google apps I have and extra TV channels it brings. It turns your TV into a capable entertainment search and playback engine It has a snazzy blue glowing on and off switch and it looks better than the usual anonymous black box . The remote is easy to use and has many more functions than most other boxes, however I have connected a multimedia keyboard which makes accessing all the features far easier. A nice highly functional unit that can transform your TV into much more than a device for watching programs on. It really is fully loaded and will form the basis of a great entertainment hub. The internet functions it adds to your TV are amazing and using this box I can always find something to watch.
Overall a very pleasant experience with this box. It will transform your TV, get one! I have a smart TV but it is very slow at searching as it is a few years old now. This box has brought the smart side right up to date with many extras you don’t find on a smart TV. It’s like turning your TV into a giant laptop !
I would suggest you get a proper keyboard to link to this box via Wi-Fi as it makes accessing the menus and typing in searches far easier.
An amazing addition to the TV, it will transform your viewing.

Intsun Handheld Mini Super Mute Fan AA Battery Powered Personal Portable Electric Cooling Fan for Home and Travel (Green)
I was kindly sent this fan at no cost to me to try and then produce an honest review.

The fan.
This comes in a colourful box. You will need to buy 2 X AA batteries to run it (not supplied). It is easily handheld and will fit in a pocket or hand bag.

Build
It is all plastic but they are solid plastics and should be fine in normal use. The blades are made of very soft plastic so they won’t hurt you it you touch your skin with them while it is working.

Set up.
Just put in the batteries and it is ready to go.

Using.
It has a simple on and off button. It is quite effective and does induce a nice cooling effect even at high ambient temperatures. The head is adjustable by 45 degrees and it will stand on a flat surface while on.

Overall.
Nice little cooling fan that is effective and quiet in operation. Very useful to keep cool outside in summer. A nice little item.


Bzsport Mens Cycling Jackets Waterproof Running Rain Coat

3.0 out of 5 stars Showerproof not waterproof. No waist drawstring. Ok for occasional use., 23 July 2016
Bzsport Mens Cycling Jackets Waterproof Running Rain Coat

I was sent this coat free of charge to test and then produce an honest review.

The coat.
This is a bright yellow waterproof over jacket with hood. The hood has a draw string so that it can be tight around the face to prevent water entry while cycling. It can be packed down to quite a small size.

Other features.
Bright colour and a rear reflective triangle add to visibility safety.

Using.
It fits very well so the size stated is fine. I am a UK XL and as it was a coat I order a 2XL so it would go over clothes. It fits fine.
I went out in a storm and found the coat did let in rain. I would dispute the claim that it is waterproof I would say it is more shower proof. Also there is no waist draw string or elastic so the wind gets in and so does the rain. There needs to be some modification here.
I found I got very hot in it and it is not that breathable to be honest. There are no pockets or storage compartments in the cost. I know it’s designed for cycling but it is advertised as a leisure coat as well so I think there should be something.
The zip works fine but in heavy rain it lets water through when riding downhill in rain.

Overall.
It needs more work to perfect the design in my opinion as someone who does a lot of outdoor pursuits and has tried many types of clothing for this purpose over the years. It’s fine if you are caught in a shower but as a coat to keep you dry in heavy prolonged rain it fails. For shower protection it is fine but for protection look elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent results but it takes alot of time and work to get there., 23 July 2016
Car Cleaning Auto Clay Bar - Nakeey Blue Auto Car Detailing Clay Cleaning Bar Magic Clean Effect

I was supplied this clay free of charge to test it and then produce an honest review.

The pack.
The clay comes is a plastic pack to stop it drying out.

Uses.
This is used as a car cleaning aid and can remove all sorts of dirt without the need for chemicals.
Using.
You just wet the paint surface with water and then rub with the clay. It needs a fair bit of elbow grease but it does pick up hard to remove dirt very well and does not use any abrasive.

Results.
I tried it on my van which is used to move hay and water around our small holding it is really dirty and it removed the ground in surface dirt very well and saved using a brush and multiple washes. Once clean with this I did a wax wash and the van looks much better using this method than when it is put through a car wash. However, I did spend most of the morning doing it so it time consuming but the van was hanging with dirt and dust from the tracks it has to go up and down.

Overall.
A neat way to clean off embedded dirt but it takes time and a lot of work. For the cost it works out much cheaper than a deep clean run at the car wash and the results using this seem better as more stick dirt is removed.

Apple ipad Air 2 Keyboard Cover - Inateck Ultra-Slim Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard Case with Auto Wake / Sleep Function and Multi-Angle Stand for Apple iPad Air 2 – Black

I was very kindly sent this case at no cost to me to try and then produce an honest review.

The case.
This is a case that also combines a full Bluetooth keyboard.

Construction.
It is well made and hinges very nicely into a stand. The keys feel nice to use and miles better than using the touch keys on the screen
It is a qwerty keyboard so typists will find it very familiar and easy to use.

Connection.
The keyboard is Bluetooth so you need to pair it with the Air first. This is a quick and simple process and only needs to be done once.

Using.
It turns the Air into a laptop and you use it exactly as a laptop. It is very comfortable to use and fast to type with. It has a US layout so there is no direct £ key entry. The keys feel nice to type with and the keyboard is compact.
Sleep and wake.
The case has a magnet built in that will activate the sleep mode when closed and active the wake mode when the case is opened.

Overall.
A nice case and keyboard combination which in my opinion makes the Air much more easy to use (I grew up in the laptop generation rather than the tablet one) as I find the touch keys not very accurate – I prefer a proper keyboard. This case gives me protection, a stand and a keyboard and is a worthwhile investment if you prefer a keyboard. Happy to recommend.

WINOMO Clothes Hangers Metal Wonder Magic Pack of 6
I was very kindly sent these free of charge to test and then produce an honest review.

In the box.
These come is a well-padded cardboard box for delivery. In the box there are 6 hangers with the ability to hang 6 garments on each hanger.

How they work,
They are designed to save space by allowing six items to hang on one vertical hanger. The hanger can easily be moved into the horizontal position for easy garment selection.

Build quality.
They are made from nickel steel so won’t rust. The hooks are large and oversize so should fit any wardrobe rail. They are polished so there are no sharp edges. They are very strong and well made.

In use.
They save a lot of space and I am doing my best to organise my work shirts using these. They fit our rails well and I am in the process of having a tidy up. These will help a lot.

Overall.
A neat space saving idea. Well-made and executed. I like these a lot.

Rocketek® 3.1A/15.5W Dual USB Car Charger Adapter with a Car Socket Cigarette Lighter Adapter | 12V/24V DC Outlet Car Splitter - Build-in Fuse

I was kindly sent this charger at no cost to me to try and then produce an honest review
What is it?
This is a high quality USB charger that fits in your car and uses the 12 Volt aux power output socket. It is made of high impact plastic and is very robust.
It will charge all phones and tablets from Apple and all the Android and Windows makes as well.
It has 2 charging ports that can all be used at once. It also features a 12 volt cigarette lighter pass through port so that this is still available. It has built in fuse and overload protection.

Build quality.
This is nicely made and fits into my cars 12 volt socket very securely. The plastics are of good quality and should prove very durable in use.
The USB port clicks a cable in very positively with no sloppiness or play. These feel very well put together. The 12 volt socket is just a duplication of the car type and works perfectly.

In use.
The unit has built in quick charge technology. This uses a processor that delivers maximum charge at all times so that devices charge as quickly as possible.
I used the cable to charge my iPad mini and the extra USB socket to charge my HTC m9 phone. This certainly works as both units were charged in under two hours which is far faster than my other car charger. Once charged the power is cut to prevent overcharging. It works very well indeed.
I feel these chargers are now essential items to have in the car these days as everything can charge off them that has a USB socket. Having the 12 volt pass through port is useful to work the Sat Nav while charging the phones on the move – a great design evolution.

Overall.
Well-made and charges phones and tablets with the minimum of fuss in the car. An essential item for the frequent traveller. This one is well made and works very well. Happy to recommend it.

Fosman Universal 360 Rotatable Magnetic Car Mount For iPhone for iPhone 6S/6/6 Plus/5S/5C/SE Galaxy Note 4 3 Samsung Galaxy S5/ S6/ S6 Edge/S7 Edge Sat Nav (42mm Tri Black)

I was kindly sent this holder free of charge to give it a try and produce an honest user review.

In the box.
The main holder, magnetic phone, sat nav or small tablet fixing and a universal swivel joint and air vent universal mount.

Fixing.
The phone fixes on using a magnetic sticker which in turn attaches to a swivel joint. It sounds complicated but in practice it only takes five minutes to set it up. The air vent mount fixes into the grill on the vent and holds the phone etc. firm.
It can be used in other places apart from the car. Useful on the office desk to keep your phone in view etc.
In use.
The swivel joint means you can see the screen of your device from any angle which makes it safer while driving. It held my heavy HTC M9 phone very securely. It also would hold a Sat Nav or small tablet quite securely.
Overall.
A different but ingenious way of mounting your phone or device in the car so that you can see it without taking your eyes off the road. It combines several ideas into one successful mount. It is well made and easy to fit and takes up very little room . Highly recommended.
