Bose ® SoundLink ® Mini Bluetooth Speaker - Silver
Bose ® SoundLink ® Mini Bluetooth Speaker - Silver
Price: £159.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of kit if a bit expensive!, 20 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great sound, fantastic bass, good range.
Very reliable - pairs immediately with all my devices via Bluetooth.
Has a power cord that can plug directly into the unit as well as the charging cradle - enabling the unit to be played and moved around without any wires attached and then placed back onto the cradle to continue playing and resume charging if needed.
My only preference would be that I like my sounds a bit on the high-treble side - which this speaker could do with boosting (my personal preference). Otherwise fantastic piece of kit.

Note: Sound is better if placed with the back of the speaker facing a wall or other suitable surface that will reflect the sound (say about 6 inches to a foot from the wall - you can play with this to see what gives you the best sound). Be careful not to corner the speaker or place it surrounded by other objects - diminishes the sound!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good tablet, 20 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a bad tablet at all for this price! Have been using it for a couple of months now - only real problem I have is with the battery life (hence 4 stars instead of 5) - 2-2.5 hrs on continuous mixed use and with quite a few apps installed (and to be fair the seller did mention that I could return it if not happy).

PROS:
1) Doesn't hang like the Android 4.2 OS (although this is more an OS issue rather than a tablet issue).
2) Quick.
3) Good wifi pickup on 'modern' routers (i.e. through my experience it may have difficulty connecting sometimes/range may be limited if you have an old router)
4) Picture is clear and bright enough for everyday basic use.
5) Has GPS (over wifi) - good for your travel apps, weather apps etc etc.
6) Has tethering to your mobile.
7) Has Bluetooth & PC connectivity (via micro USB port & cable provided) to copy/paste files from tablet to PC and vice-versa - for eg. to backup etc
8) Free screen protector that comes with it is an added bonus.

CONS:
1) MAIN: Battery life is short - 2-2.5hrs for mine on continuous mixed use - mixture of browsing, playing games, music etc.
2) I moved my apps to the SD card and experienced the following issue: All my 'folders' (groupings of installed app icons) tend to disappear from the homescreen upon disconnection from the PC - i.e. if I connected the tablet to the PC to back-up etc (via micro-USB cable) and then disconnected again, all the folders would disappear - NOTE: the apps are NOT deleted but you have to either access the apps via the app drawer (::: icon) or the Apps listing under Settings - and reconstruct the folders on your homescreen again.
NOTE also that this seems to happen ONLY with apps you have moved onto the SD card. The SD-saved app icons also tend to disappear from your homescreen/folders upon updating them.
-- this may well be a Kitkat 4.4 issue rather than the tablet though.
3) At this price don't depend too much on the quality of the cameras - 1.3MP front, 2MP back (but then I don't use these much anyway). However, this being said they are functionally ok.
4) As said by others, viewing angle is low but this doesn't bother me much - I just hold it at the angle that gives me a satisfactory picture without too much bother.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fits this tablet well but durability is a question mark, 4 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fits tablet well, with all the right gaps where the buttons and access slots are, although the tablet tends to slowly slip out over time (while holding it) as bottom end of the case does not have a Velcro fitting to ensure the tablet stays in place inside but a simple flap that folds into the case 'behind' the tablet if you see what I mean!

In my case, the outside edges where the case folds also started to tear within a week of using the case - so not v durable at all (but the edges can be repaired/this can be prevented by using a bit of plumbing tape/duct tape stuck over it!).

Not designed for impact protection.

Looks-wise it's good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works fine...good substitute...but...., 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works fine - is recognized by the printer. Colours are not so vivid and bright as maybe some of the higher end inks but are a good substitute for general home printing (especially at the price).

4.0 out of 5 stars Can image my IPad on the TV now..., 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems to work great - although the iPad image does not cover the entire TV screen (I don't know whether this is to do with the resolution the TV has been set on or the output from the iPad or a constraint of this gadget - hence 4 stars).

4.0 out of 5 stars Works great but a bit narrow., 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works great on my car window - I can clip it to the top of the window and the window is able to close fine. Roller blind mechanism is good and can be automatically rewound easily by pressing a 'button' on the side of the blind. Only complaint is that it is a bit narrow and only partially covers the window - would have rated 5 stars if it was a bit broader! Although in this case you can use the vacuum cups (comes with 2 vacuum cups in case your car window is not able to close properly with the blind clipped on at the top of the window) to fix the blind sideways and this way the roller blind stretches across more of the window.

Much cheaper than Franke (about half the price at least) and performs the same function. Can't tell the difference in the taste of the water anyway.

Much cheaper than Franke (about half the price at least) and performs the same function - if you want a slightly higher quality filter go for the Doulton Ultracarb which claims to have better activated carbon filtering to remove lead/chlorine etc from water.
