4.0 out of 5 stars No problems, delivered promptly, 26 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only bought to enable swap-out (eliminate cable it replaced as source of issues). Now traced issues to protocol negotiation/choice by ISP, since resolved. The cable is still in use (never bothered swapping back) and works fine now the other infrastructure does its job properly.

Loved the book, including the jokes - dunno if they made it to the film, which didn't watch as I now know the ending ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Mighty Bright?, 26 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flexithin - Wallet Size Magnifier
Not much Mighty Bright about it; check listing pic - mate has an MB one and it plainly says so on frame; see Flexithin magnifying lens, case. The 2 units I received didn't even have a logo on frame at all, so not as described nor as pictured. That said, they work OK, and seem to resolve an image roughly as good as mate's MB, so pity description (etc) leaves a slightly bad taste.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little charger, 26 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent little charger - cannot speak for output capacity as I don't have any high-current devices, but it charges WileyFox Swift battery (2500 mAH) from 55% to 100% in about an hour. Construction is robust; main unit has interchangeable wall power interface - one UK 3-pin adaptor plate supplied (no others, but no problem for me as don't travel abroad; YMMV). Design is such that the locking catch (yes, there is one) on this adaptor plate is prevented from operating while plugged into mains, so virtually zero chance of pulling unit apart leaving adaptor behind in socket with contacts exposed (even if you managed that somehow, contacts are hidden in narrower-at-the-top grooves (slide-on keyways), so impossible even for small children to get fingers in by accident). Would order again if I need another charger.

4.0 out of 5 stars Defintely fits Swift, 26 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived promptly, fits WileyFox Swift fine, good quality physical construction. Charges fine, data transfer works OK for MTP/PTP. As per listing pic, cable is folded in middle then coiled & packed, which results in a kink mid-cable, but that seems to be wearing off now after a bit of persuasion. One of the cables received (I ordered 2) arrived with the USB symbol (moulded into micro-USB body, helps you figure out 'which way is up') was in fact moulded into the underside instead of the side that is uppermost when correctly inserted - the direct opposite of the other cable (and all my others), thus inconsistent (plus, extra potential for socket damage if relied upon). However, kudos to sellers who promptly replaced it after a little remote-explaining by email.

Agree that Gene Simmons seems an odd choice :) but enjoyed it very much and have already watched it 'again' on an-otherwise duff night for TV. I expect that won't be the last time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Functionality excellent, but may get contention with other 2.4GHz kit nearby, 1 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No complaints whatsoever for the 'mousey' aspects. Also like the auto-switchoff (to help battery life) after 8 mins, reversed simply by clicking any button (I use right-click; no 'accidents' yet). Other post/s citing glitchy cursor motion may be experiencing wifi contention, but I understand from Googling this is 'normal' if the 'other' 2.4GHz traffic is heavy/constant (in my case, copying data from/to my mobile's SD card over wifi). I gather it might be ameliorated by changing control channel of the other kit (e.g. router). There's no facility to change channel on the mouse, but for £9 I doubt you could expect that - and anyway that might seriously complicate its plug'n'play receiver-pairing (which was flawless, by the way). But as my heavy/other wireless traffic lasts about 3-4 mins/day, I can't be bothered to experiment with channel-hopping, and of course YMMV. Other less-intense wifi traffic (such as the phone checking for new mail) has no effect that I've noticed, but if something on your network is streaming over 2.4GHz it may be an issue for you.

I would stress (and no, I don't work for the seller) that I understand this is 'the nature of the beast' for wireless mice, and would likely happen (if it's going to) with any brand thereof.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prompt delivery and good performance. Definitely has more capacity/longevity than the old ..., 29 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Prompt delivery and good performance. Definitely has more capacity/longevity than the old one it replaced (I'd guess an extra 50%), so pleased I chose it. Arrived with about 60% charge so no downtime on swapover and no tears getting it to accept a full charge. I do get the (subjective?) feeling the first few charges were each successively achieving slightly more till it plateau'd - but no dramatic shortfall in those first few (even charge #1 seemed better than the old battery).

3.0 out of 5 stars Sound quality, 12 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live in Montreux 1969 (Audio CD)
It would have been nice if the description here for this item had mentioned this is (as honestly stated in the actual sleeve notes, but by then it's a little late...) recorded direct from the PA mixer desk stereo output, with a mix that is of course tailored entirely to suit the PA (and the building acoustics) - in 1969 quality - and is in no way balanced for the tape. Suggest do not expect too much. I don't have the urge to sue anybody, but suspect I will never listen to it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Correction, 21 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Live In London 1974 (Audio CD)
Tommy Bolin didn't play on Stormbringer either - that was still Ritchie Blackmore. THEN RB left (to form Rainbow) and they got Bolin in. His first (and only) studio album with them was Come Taste The Band. After the disastrous UK tour with TB, DP disbanded completely (till '84...)

By the way, I remember the entire show on the original radio broadcast (mono, on a pair of ancient headphones, and it was still absolute magic). Amazing to get it back again in CD quality. If only there was a DVD...
