IIYAMA ProLite E2483HS1 24 inch LED Monitor
IIYAMA ProLite E2483HS1 24 inch LED Monitor
Price: £119.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good monitor in my view., 16 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exceptionally good monitor. Nice clear bright images and uniform brightness across the entire screen.

Easy to access controls at the front, tucked neatly away under the bottom edge.

I'm currently using the DVI socket as I don't have an HDMI cable to connect to my video card. I hope to change that soon as the video card allows for VGA, DVI and HDMI outputs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing but functional with a lot of patience and common sense., 16 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as easy to assemble as claimed.

There are no assembly instructions. A list of 'General Safety Instructions' is included along with an ambiguous 'exploded view'.

The parts list did not match exactly what was included in the small plastic bag of parts - too many washers, not enough nuts.

With some common sense, the unit can be assembled but I was disappointed when two of the threaded parts broke free from the woefully inadequate small tack weld designed to provide structural support.

Just as the crew of Apollo 13 had to make do with whatever was to hand in their two modules, I eventually assembled something resembling the 'Sealey Paper Roll Dispenser' available for a few pounds more. I used the image of the Sealey dispenser to work out most of the parts for this unit as it was more helpful.

I wish now I had spent that little extra cash.

The position of the spring used to hold the paper in a state of readiness, was not clear from the exploded image.

The tape reel dispensers are set about 200mm (8") too far back. Any exposed adhesive would quickly pick up dust and other contaminants in the workshop to reduce the stickiness on the paper roll. I will have to move these by drilling some holes in the flat steel braces at each end. Then about 25mm (1") of adhesive tape will be exposed.

Some of the holes for bolts had been left flat and bolts sat proud, others had been pressed so bolts sat almost flush with the frame.

I have given it three stars because it is now together although I will have to make time to add more effective welds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very revealing in the peeling!, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Use all the cleanser you want to remove surface marks.

If you want to go deeper then this is highly recommended.

Follow the instructions and, using dry hands, apply the special strip to your wet nose.

When it dries, peel it off to reveal the accumulated build up in your pores.

Under a magnifying glass, stalagmites appear to reveal what had previously been in your skin.

Not for the faint-hearted!

Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars la vie is label..., 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my Mum as her original 510 (purple) developed a fault and the part is not available.

This newer model also uses the cartridges from the purple 510 - Yay!

Comes with a roll of film so you can start crafting right away!

Highly recommended - you should have seen the smile on Mum's face!


GENUINE APPLE USB KEYBOARD - BELGIAN - MODEL A1242
GENUINE APPLE USB KEYBOARD - BELGIAN - MODEL A1242

3.0 out of 5 stars A chance for me to provide some input., 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exactly as described with the alternate AZERTY layout which can be changed to a QWERTY layout by swapping over the key caps.

You may also change the hyphen/underscore key cap and the equals/plus key cap.

But the problem remains with the other keys.

Numbers 1 through to 0 have different SHIFT labels to the UK layout.

I bought this hoping to swap over UK key caps from another keyboard but this is not practical.

I'm disappointed as I thought this was an inexpensive way to own a new compact keyboard.

Avoid.

My previous review had a glowing report of this keyboard but I had not begun to swap the keys with those of another keyboard.

LEGO - It's great!

I've been building with it for over 40 years!

Bought this set to get back into Technical Sets again.

Small, simple and a quick build.

Lovely and light, the grip is comfortable and the trigger is easy to operate.

Requires a threaded connector based on your compressor hose fitting.

Does exactly what it says.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's the chairs, here's the staples, Cover the cushions, seat the people!, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to do some upholstery work.

Worked like a charm! The 6mm depth really grips the chair base and holds the material firmly.

Handy for a school project when little hands were using the stapler.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping!, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to do some upholstery work.

Worked like a charm! The 8mm depth really grips the base and holds the material firmly.

The large box contains four smaller boxes, each with 1000 staples. I believe in minimal packaging so I should give this four stars but it's cardboard and not shrink-wrapped plastic so it will be recycled and not end up in landfill!

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Vinyl Countdown, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic set of colours including two white and two black sheets.

Nice solid feel to the vinyl and it's easy to remove from the backing paper.

It does give a little but will return to the original size if treated gently.

It gave me fantastically detailed stencils to refurb the front panel of an old welder.
