2.0 out of 5 stars Lame, 17 April 2014
This review is from: Fortress (Amazon Instant Video)
Lame story, lame acting, lame set. Overall pretty lame. Maybe in its time it would have been OK, but now it seems very very dated

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy set up - poor range, 25 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was very disappointed with this repeater. There was one room where my wifi did not reach so I bought this repeater. The location of the power sockets in the house meant that the repeater had to be positioned near the limit of the current wifi router, but I thought this would be OK because at this location my devices pick up the signal adequately. Unfortunately the repeater was worse than my devices at picking up signal and did not work.

3.0 out of 5 stars A well written soft porn adventure, 31 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Good Intentions (Kindle Edition)
Whilst I am not normally a fan of fantasy I tried this book because I was blown away by his SF book "Poor mans fight".

I did enjoy the book but I have to say it is all about a very cliche male fantasy. Instant sexual prowess, instant attraction, insatiable instantly turned on women, unconditional trust love acceptance and affection, women without inhibitions jealousy possessiveness or judgement, and sex with hot women and more sex with hot women and sex with multiple hot women, and watching sex between hot women, and yet more sex with hot women.

Ideal for shy hormonal teenagers and sex deprived men in mid life crisis ... like me :)

This worked well. My only gripe was that I would have preferred it to pick up sound from further away to allow me to have more flexibility where it was placed in the room.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent fit, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sound quality is good, and the battery usage is good as advertised. I particularly like the gel fitting that allows it to securely fit into the ear. It is by far the most comfortable and secure fitting I have had for earphones.

However, I have stopped using this now because I need a pause button for listening to language tapes, and in common with other mono earphones it doesn't have this feature.

These work well. In common with all earphones of this type the earpieces are bulky but not especially so.
The fit in the ear is OK, but I do find that they feel like they are about to fall out occasionally.
They come with some optional bits that are meant to help hold the earphones more securely in your ear, but for my ear shape these were pretty useless. Similar fittings on a Plantronic headset that I had worked much better. Also if you add these fittings you cant charge the headset so you have to keep removing them and adding them.

The controls are large, which I like, and also rubber covered which is good for me because I use these in the bath.
Sound quality and volume are good and battery life OK for my purposes (e.g. couple of hour car journeys)

Overall I'm happy with this purchase

Plugged it in and it works great. Good value. No complaints. I use it with a Windows 8 laptop where the onboard wi-fi had stopped working.

2.0 out of 5 stars Such a poor ending it ruined the whole series for me, 25 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading the first novel in the series I have added Jason Hough to my relatively short list of SF writers that I like. He keeps you engaged all the way through with characters that engage, plots that you can believe in and keep moving at a good pace.

However while each of the books are good reads, the promise is that the strange goings on were all part of something that made sense. Sadly once I had finished the final novel I realised that there had been no plan, just random occurrences of "strange and awesome alien artifacts".

To be fair there was a big reveal at the end, but for me it simply was not credible and was a big let down.
So much so that I have since gone back and downgraded my ratings of the previous novels in the series from 5 stars to 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good sound quality, 22 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found the sound quality very good, liked the styling and it fitted very comfortably into my ears, and the volume and mic was good.
My only problem was with the pause button. It has a very good tactile feel, but seemed very sensitive to water. I listen to language lessons via these and need to constantly stop and start. This worked well normally except when I was having a bath with damp hands. Although it did resume normal operation once away from water.

Also my constant use of the pause button, and possibly because of water damage, has ended up with the pause button stopping working completely, but I am sure that with normal usage it would be fine.
