Neat little design, still good if you use a case!

This item arrived in a nicely designed, solid cardboard, printed protective box. The box opened nicely to show a well laid out interior, with the transmitter protected in a plastic packet, with plastic sheets protecting the glossy front and back of the unit. Inside the box were the unit itself, a micro-USB cable, and a car cigarette lighter USB power adapter, along with a basic instruction manual.

I think it’s a nice touch that the power plug has a standard USB socket, so you can use it to either power your phone, or power the device. The device has a battery, and there is a battery level indicator in the display, so you can use it without it being constantly plugged in.

Useful, versatile and accurate – nice little carry pouch!

This item arrived inside a protective retail packaging box. The retail box is highly attractive, glossy with bright colours.

Inside the box were the thermometer itself, including end cap, a nice, velvety pouch for the device, and a useful instruction manual, with decent illustrations. It was nice to find that a pair of AAA batteries was already installed in the device, with a plastic pull tab to stop them losing charge whilst in transit.

Etekcity Digital Fat Measuring Weighing Scales Review

Very high quality and solid item, useful and accurate!

This item arrived packaged in a nice, solid, protective box, that’s definitely glossy and would fit retail. Inside the box was the item itself, held in polystyrene protectors and in a protective plastic bag, along with an instruction sheet and warranty card.

The scales had batteries already fitted, with a pull tab to activate them. The scales themselves have a really deep, glossy finish, and a very attractive design, with the two foot sensors for body fat measurement being integrated into the design.

SourcingBay Android / Kodi TV Stick Review

Three Stars

Very versatile device, but there are a few niggles.

This item arrived packaged in a very attractive retail printed cardboard box, very similar to high end smartphones – it definitely reeked of quality. Inside the box were the unit itself, a remote control unit, an antenna, a USB power lead, a short HDMI extender, an infra-red receiver and a sticker to stick the receiver in a suitable location. The supplied instructions are VERY basic, and don’t even tell you which option you should pick when powering the device on. You really need to understand both Android and Kodi to use this device, the instructions just aren’t enough.

The first thing I noticed about the item was that it is quite large compared to an Amazon Fire TV stick – I have two of those and use them with Kodi, so I always use it as a basis for comparison with other TV devices. The unit also has a cap on the end covering the HDMI plug. That’s nice to have, but considering it’s going to be plugged into a TV most of the time, and it’s not attached by a string or something, I suspect it will be quickly lost.

VicTop BlueTooth Headphones Review

Work perfectly and hold really well in the ear!

These earphones arrived in an attractive retail style printed box. Unfortunately, the box was a little damaged, but everything inside was OK. Inside were the instruction manual, the earphones, a little bag of different sized earplugs and a (very short) charging cable.

The earbuds were soft and fit perfectly in the ear, seeming to block out most extraneous sound. The cable holding the earpieces together is soft and long – long enough even for a large head like mine, with room to spare. The cable is nicely moulded into each earpiece, so it’s not just going to pull or fall out.
