4.0 out of 5 stars Cheerful enough, 21 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd estimate the length of the wire which has the LED icicles at 3.5m, so it's OK for a running around a conservatory or bay window. There's plenty of additional wire to let you reach a 3pin plug - this unit comes with every thing need, plug, controller unit.

The drop-down 'icicles' are of varying length, you have one of all blue LEDS then one of all white alternately.

Controller has various sequences, including always on at full brightness. I'd have liked always on at 50% brightness too.

Layers of protection so arrived intact. But why oh why must we live in semi-darkness due to EU pen-pushers banning most incandescent lights!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for every serious gardener in Scotland, 16 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having recently moved to Scotland, this guide is invaluable as compendium of gardens to visit and nurseries. The author also lists horticultural societies inc., obviously, the 'Calley'.

He also has some trenchant views on why Scotland's public and private gardens are under threat and often not well publicised. Certainly it was a little depressing to see that so many only open a 1 or 2 days in the year for the Garden Scheme.

The book is pocket sized although pretty thick so inevitably the spine will crease. The downside of the pocket size is the font has to be rather small and dense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Minimalist perhaps, but with a distinctive voice, 16 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Aheym (Audio CD)
Some Kronos CDs are too 'way out there' for me, but this is excellent, contemporary but enjoyable. The pieces are in the minimalist genre pioneered by Reich, Glass, Greenaway etc. being based around repeated, subtly changing motifs.

If you think you don't like modern classical get this and be prepared to think again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't do what it said on the tin, 15 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Returned for a refund. I could see it from my iPhone using the card's own ad-hoc wi-fi but I could never get the card to flip to use my D-Link router's wi-fi.

Also, once I'd read through the instructions I couldn't see how it would do what I really wanted, automatically push each picture to cloud store.

3.0 out of 5 stars One track-one wonder, 2 Nov. 2014
This review is from: 1989 (Audio CD)
All totally forgettable apart from Shake It Off.

99% identical to Sophie Ellis-Bextor 'Wanderlust' in arrangements, tempo and vocals.

Quality is terrible, the pin just falls out as it's too thin to engage with the threads on the shackle. Pointless returning for a refund, of course!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mine arrived with a fault, when the hour hand ..., 15 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mine arrived with a fault; when the hour hand was exactly on the hour marker, the minute hand was at 22 mins past. Disappointing quality control for what you'd hope was a decent brand using an ETA movement, but at least Amazon don't mess you about on refunds.

Anyway, reviewing the watch itself I'd have preferred the Junkers logo to be much smaller and applied below the name, it looks very clumsy and 'cheap' above the 6 marker in what is supposed to be a minimalist design and always draws the eye from the much finer detailing of the dial markers.

The ETA movement is interesting through the display back, it seems to be 100% generic as there's no Junkers markings on the rotor.

It's all a matter of personal taste, but IMHO a dial of 40mm size with flat finish (no 'sunburst') is just slightly too big to 'work' with such a pared-down design, the Junghans Max Bill 027/3501.00 at 38mm is preferable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special IMHO, 14 Sept. 2014
Not that impressed. The handle is too small for a man's hand to grip comfortably, the metal insert for bottle caps feels very flimsy in use

If Diana Krall played trumpet, it would sound like this. Come to think of it a Krall/Balsom show at a cool jazz club could be popular.
