5.0 out of 5 stars Superb mirror - really secure fitting and great visibility, 10 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is by far the best baby car mirror that money can buy. It's extremely well constructed, easily fitted (with really secure fastenings), and gives a perfect view of the little one. I've tried several other mirrors and find they wobble and work loose: this one is rock solid and is going nowhere. With other mirrors I've worried about them falling off (and on to baby): with this one the whole rear seat would have to fall off before anything bad could happen!

I highly recommend this product: my only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great little device, 13 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great little device that works well on either the home network, or over the web. I've had in use now for a month and it's been perfect at turning lights on and opp either on-demand via the app, or via a schedule on ifttt.com. Product is well made, though its size does block adjacent sockets. Packaging is really nice (as good as Apple devices), which is great if gifting to someone else.

A number of authors have commented on the reliability of the device and its app: I think this might refer to earlier versions. I've had no problems with wifi connectivity, and am pleased overall. The iOS app works flawlessly, but the Android version does crash (but always works on a restart).

Overall, a good home automation device - and for £30 a bit of a steal.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great unit - but no seconds!, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overall this is a really nice weather station, with a easy to read display for temperature, humidity, and weather forecast. I bought this to replace my old BAR668HG unit (for which the remote sensor had failed, and it was cheaper to buy a whole new unit). Interestingly, the outside sensor is communicating with both units - so I've now got two fully functional weather stations.

My only complaint with this unit (and hence the lost star) is that the time doesn't display seconds. Given this is a radio-controlled unit, this is a real pity as it's not possible to know the exact time. Maybe a minor gripe, but lessens the usefulness of the device to me.

This book is now some thirty years old - but so much of it remains valid. A must read for anyone serious about manufacturing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Superb unit - shame about the bass, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On paper this is a really good unit - a great specification, a nice looking device, a well-known and reputable manufacturer. Having now used the device daily for a month, I'm now able to give some honest feedback.

Good things: most of it. Design is great, quality feel to unit, lovely screen, useful USB charging port. I found reception on the DAB very good, and the Bluetooth works well with both my Apple and Android kit. Two alarms (weekday / weekend) is really handy, and they seem to survive power outages.

Bad thing: Only one complaint: too much bass (which CANNOT be adjusted). On Bluetooth it's manageable - just turn the volume down on the connected device (50% seems to work well), and turn the Blutune up. On DAB it can be hopeless depending on the station (I've found Absolute Radio to be pretty bad, but then Radio 1 seems alright). Radio shows with talk (e.g. Radio 4) are ok - but not great. This is a real shame, as it's an otherwise great unit. I'm soooo tempted to open the device and disconnect the subwoofer, but that'd be at the cost of the warranty.

I phoned Roberts about the Bass issue, and they denied all knowledge of the problem. I mentioned the other reviews on Amazon (and also John Lewis), and they seemed to shrug it off. A pity really - but maybe we'll get a software update one day to resolve the problem.

Conclusion: I could have sent the unit back because of the bass, and I really did consider this. However, the unit is otherwise fantastic and I've decided to live with the problem for now - but Roberts PLEASE make a software update available. Just let us turn off the sub!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works out of the box for Raspberry Pi - great little adapter, 10 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a great little adapter from a great manufacturer. Build quality is good, and the device is packaged with full-size CD of drivers and a small manual.

I wanted this device to enable my little Raspberry Pi to stream music from my iPad to the hifi via the 3.5mm jack, and had no problem setting this up. Adapter is recognized out-of-the-box on Raspbian (2014-01-07-wheezy-raspbian ISO), so there's no need to worry about drivers. If, however, drivers are needed (I did when trying the device in my Win7Pro laptop), downloads are readily available from the manufacturer website (I didn't bother with the CD provided since the web is more likely to offer recent editions)

Range is pretty good - in an old house with very thick walls I achieved about 10m before quality started to degrade, so ideal for my application. Having played a number of albums this was it's been great to get rid of the trailing cable from iPad to hifi - and the audio quality hasn't suffered from this Bluetooth implementation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent replacement for broken remote, 4 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good replacement for a multitude of device handsets. Easily set-up using the configuration codes provided, and it is possible for the device to 'learn' from the original unit. Plenty of documentation provided, and the manufacturer website is pretty good too.

Build quality is very very good, backlight illumination (white) is effective at night, and the unit feels very sturdy. Highly recommended.
