1.0 out of 5 stars Nice design, shame the buttons don't work., 23 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is for an iPod Touch 4th generation, however whilst the cover fits the smaller 4th generation iPod the design is clearly the same as for the 5th generation touch which we also have. The outer dimensions are the same but the aperture at the front is smaller to accommodate the small iPod, this means the silicone bar inside that enables the user to press the case and activate the internal top button is too long and flexible and doesn't actually activate the 'sleep' button. So nice looking case that doesn't actually do everything you need it to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, single event timer, 7 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The perfect swimming timer? Nearly. Exactly what I was looking for to do swimming timekeeping where I don't need splits and lap times, just start and stop. For me the shape is a little uncomfortable to hold, a little less square would be better....for me.
Probably cheaper stopwatches available but none that I could find that are this straight forward. Overall a good watch for my purpose, but it may end up as the reserve timer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bass in bucket loads, 7 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Chose this because of the consistently good reviews and rating by hi-fi magazines. At any price really excellent noise isolating in ear headphones.
Bass is really quite something and better than any of the many sets I have tried.
If you want a nicely balanced sound but with a bass punch, it would be hard to beat these.
Very good solid construction , good looks and tangle free cable.
Early indications are that these are winners for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good at any price, 25 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After much deliberation settled on this Seiko as a replacement for a similar (older version) Seiko divers watch damaged beyond repair, which was automatic and because I wear a different watch pretty much every day needed to be regularly reset.
This watch is really beautiful, nice size - not too big, not too small. Kinetic movement is, so far, very accurate but without the shadow of replacement batteries. The watch has a party piece, which is the power reserve button which spins the second hand around to show the amount of power left - a satisfying 12 around to 6 signifying six months of power reserve.
I wear this watch with a suit for work and it looks really smart. It looks equally at home at the weekend, good all rounder.
All of the Seiko watches in this series are nice, this is particularly nice.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fastime DB2 Stopwatch...great except for the bleeping bleep!, 20 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very nice stopwatch, sits nicely in the hand and the button action is good and positive. One issue which I will need to go back to the supplier about is the fact that they state that there is "Silent (no beep) operation" which is clearly not the case. I will try and establish how to switch off the beep and update this feedback accordingly. If I can get rid of the beep then this will score highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper than renting!, 12 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The quality for the price is astonishing and worked out less than renting a suit. I found that this was a suit thickness is suitable for summer surfing in the Atlantic and has the necessary knee and chest reinforcement. The sizing was absolutely spot on and so the fit was really great and actually quite surprising for such an inexpensive wetsuit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Searching for a child friendly chess set, 20 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a chess set that was suitable for my six and eight year old girls to use without the problem of pieces being accidentally scattered by over zealous play.
This was ideal.
A good sized board and pieces and being magnetic, things stay pretty much where they should.
recommend the board and the seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exhausted kettle search, 11 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After an exhausted and exhausting search on line for the "best kettle" I found this Philips HD4671/20. Reading the reviews of real people as opposed to consumer organisation testers proved to be the right thing to do, as I am delighted with this kettle.
It looks good with its brushed steel finish. So far not a problem keeping it clean.
The weight is fine. It boils anything from a single cup amount up to 1.7 L quickly and most importantly for me quietly. To be honest, the noise a kettle makes when boiling is the one thing that is perhaps a little difficult to gauge until you plug it in for yourself in your own kitchen, as work surfaces and all sorts of other factors affect how noisy a boiling kettle can be. In our case this is on a granite work surface, not under but to one side of a wall hung cupboard and compared to our previous Morphy Richards kettle this is sublimely quiet.
The blue illuminated on off switch is a nicely balanced and switches off with a pleasing soft 'clunk' sound.
Filling the kettle is very easy as the spout is a very good shape and the lid opens at the touch of the button at the top of the handle.
The base is a shallow 'dish shape', which means the kettle locates very easily on to it and is the same colour as the kettle which makes for a very nice 'well designed' look.
Overall, though still early days, I am very pleased with this kettle as it ticks all the boxes for me.
