DEWALT Deep Pro Organizer with Metal Latch (DWST14825)

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, Jan. 5 2015
It is a sturdy case, you can move around the larger bin boxes and it latches well.

The only minor down side is the lack of outer seal ( the picture makes you think there should be one - grey outline on the lid ) but I can assure you there is not one and DeWalt have confirmed this. It's 'sister' Stanley Deep Organiser looks similar and claims a seal, but I can not confirm this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid pair of headphones., Dec 24 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great quality, solid headphones. They are power hungry, so you will need a good headphone output on an Amp or a dedicated headphone amp to really make them shine.

In comparison to Grado's these sound quieter, so you have to dial them up a bit more. But they have a lower noise floor. They don't add to the image and give a very neutral sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality and keeps the coffee warm for a while, Dec 24 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great product, it keeps the coffee warm for a long time and is a really solid build quality.

The reason I give it only 4 is what I think is a 'minor' design flaw ( it doesn't occur on the next size down which I also have ). The rod is about 1.5 cms too long. The reason I say this is when grinds are in the bottom, the plunger does not go all the way down, thus the lid is not 100% secure, it can move. It's not a big deal until you get to the last cup of coffee, but shortening the plunger rod would resolve this.

Note - This gives 4 decent size mugs of coffee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what you need for a calm xmas musical experience, Dec 24 2014

A great set of xmas music that won't send you up the wall on repeated listens !

Good recordings and in the slim line CD cases, so it doesn't take up loads of room.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome show from the golden age of TV, Dec 24 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great series, that brings back great memories.

Currently at $143, this is an awesome price especially when it also includes the UV digital copies (which the non limited, does not appear to - in addition to the non film extras - car, cards etc - and its $40 more currently ! ).

Act soon before the price goes up !

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, June 5 2014
The device works well.

On the Wireless, as long as you don't hide the SSID, or have different names for your 2.4 & 5 G networks you should be fine.
Only one issue after I accessed the SD files via wifi it stopped recording to the SD card. A format later and things were all good again.
Easy to access via iPhone app.
I didn't use the IR mode as it lights up on the front of the camera, or the motion sensor function/sound recording, so can't comment there.

Maximum recording bits are 6mins, it would be better if it was 10mins or longer. But that could make the file sizes too large to download over the wifi. As a note, recording in highest quality on a 32GB SD card gets about 3 days video before it over writes the oldest files.

Just watch the price watch on other other sites as they seem to fluctuate a bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well both in the camera and transfering to PC, April 22 2013
The card works really well in a Nikon D7000 and transfers fast via the SanDisk USB 3 reader when storing on a Hard drive. No problems with this card.

Note - The AFFP at the end of the product description stands for Amazon Frustration Free Packaging, so it comes in a little white cardboard sleeve, easy to open. Rather than the product with the 'X46' end which comes in 'retail' packaging. The card's are the same, just the packaging is different.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fun intro, but the Original Buddha Board is better, March 5 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was a fun intro to the zen painting. Unfortunately it has more down points than poitives.

1) The board is small ( similar to the new mini's, but without the stand/water holder ) you have to use the box lid, but that is not ideal.
2) The mini cymbols are fun, but keep them away from kids as the red cord easily comes out.
3) The book is ok.

Result - if you have space, buy the Original Buddha Board. If you want to travel with it, buy the Buddha Board Mini

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun for adults and kids alike, March 5 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Original Buddha Board
This is fun for adults in terms of de-stressing with one swipe of your zen brush.

Also if you have kids, this is great as you need minimal water and is safe for them to play and use ( just depending on how much water they use it extends the time for it to go white again - which in Alberta isn't long !)

The full size is well built, sturdy and gives ample 'canvas' space. ( The mini is 1/4 of the size and the fun kit does not have a good stand, fun intro, but this is the one to buy )
