5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Mini Review and Thank You Amazon for Replacing Stolen Item., 23 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't skimp and cheap oil in your pride and joy. Used this for years and kept my engine purring despite many miles for an old Mini.

Original package left in my chosen secure place outside of flat. Some scum stole it and left the box on the floor. Amazon replaced without question.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and amazing value, 23 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Double bird feeder crook (Misc.)
Was a bit taken back when it arrived. Was expecting several metal poles in a thin box. This was big and heavy and packaged very well.

Great solid build and good height. Has a stability arm which you knock into the ground with the main pole which makes it very stable.

Me happy and birdies even more :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Stor Eiglass is just is sublime a moment of genius ..., 5 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Damogen Furies (Audio CD)
Stor Eiglass is just is sublime a moment of genius. I listened on and the more I did the more taken in by this album. Takes you in and mashes you up. Off in one direction then another of sonic lunacy. Think you know where the randomness is going then take a 180 and into Jazz, Frank Zappa. a bit of dubstep then an epic soundscape with epic soul lifting highs as in Ejag Nives and may I say a nod to Si Begg from Buckfunk 3000 (brilliant album). Give it a few listens and be absorbed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic, 9 April 2015
Wow! Had metal stains in my sink due to leaving pots and saucepans over night. Tried scrubbing with various cleaner with no effect.

Rule one here do no agitate this mixture. Do not try to rub in and expect instant results. Just put a few drops over the stain and come back a few hours later and it's completely gone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible, 4 April 2015
I took a punt and I failed buying these as short gap replacement while getting my decent ones returned. Horrible tinny noise and no bass or depth of sound. Land fill material and they should just put them their before selling them on.

I chose poorly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Two stars maybe one too many, 7 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price and when these headphones work they are great. But there is a design fault somewhere as the two pairs I have had failed after five months and then two. No sound in one bud both times.

EDIT: Now the audio jack has failed after another replacement. No bass just tinny sound. Quite weird to listen to.

Will give two Stars as they have at least offered me a new pair in replacement so I'll give the new set four months before they fail.

I want to support a UK business that creates quality goods which are not style over substance but this kit is a let down.

Thinks of UK Classic Cars. Great affordable style and will go great before breaking down and rusting to bits in the blink of an eye

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Sauce Mix, 29 Sept. 2013
Compared to the usual 'Gloopy' offerings found on the UK supermarket shelves this is lovely. 500g Minced beef a can of chopped tomatoes later it's happy days. Lovely earthy flavour of an authentic Chilli.

2.0 out of 5 stars Distopian Twaddle, 18 April 2009
This review is from: Doomsday [DVD] (DVD)
All very silly and no original idea in sight. Mad Max meets 28 Days Later via Starship Troopers. Pity poor Bob Hoskins and Malcolm McDowell who ended up in this mess. Cannibalism in Glasgow but cows roaming around getting in the way of the search for the cure. Barely saved by leading actress who is very vivacious. Medieval bit was pure comedy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marching Beats, 3 May 2007
Well you never quite know what to expect with AGCG and sometimes it can be a mixed bag. Not with this. From the start there is a rolling beat combined with crafted bubbling bleeps that pervade this album without ever becoming dull. It has to be listened to a complete piece of work as tracks come and go but all feel joined by a common theme. Bionick's review is spot on, this is classic acid house/techno re-invented 'but' has been made to feel fresh and rarely for me these days something that stands out. I really hope people pick up on this as it's very special from an artist that some may associate with something nostalgic. Leave Voodoo Ray behind and grab this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh No Not Again, 6 Oct. 2006
Oh dear I don't have much luck with MP3 players. First the Creative Zen which had a hard drive that would crash if a butterfly's wing brushed past it. Then the much loved and lobbed (by many) iPod mini that has a battery life of zero, oddly enough 1 day after the warranty expires.

Now this wretched thing. On the positive side it's amazingly light and on first inspection a very appealing piece of gadgetry. It is basically a jazzed up USB memory stick which you can transfer music to and charge (Note: Cannot drag and drop using Windows though). The tiny menu display has more options and functions you would expect from such a small device and is intuitive to navigate using the few buttons it has.

The big gripe it seems about this product is SonicStage software. Well not with me as I found it quite easy to use and again quite intuitive. It did hang my laptop for brief periods but after all the fuss about it I was quite pleased. Perhaps try getting the latest version or use MP3FileManager which is supplied by Sony and is a very basic program that allows drag - drop to this device. For some reason they don't make it widely known.

Now the downside. Yes the display will not be too clear on such a small item but do not expect to see anything in daylight. So be warned and have your playlists ready to launch. Also don't expect to hear much music as the maximum volume does not blank out external sounds even using Sony in ear bud headphones.

I need an MP3 player to commute and to use down the gym. One to erase the sounds of travel and idiots yapping on their mobile phones and the other to erase the dreadful in-house gym music and me gasping for air. On both counts this device fails. Even at max it simply has no 'loudness' and the music sounds like it is coming through a couple of pillows attached to your ears. I am no spring chicken but am certainly not at the age where my hearing is beginning to go. I don't want an MP3 player which provides background music to the sounds around me.

Therefore it must have the JUNK + rating and mine is going back

Avoid.
