5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound, 7 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've used a sonos s5, a pair of aktimate micros, and various squeezebox and other solutions. Soundwise, this beats all of the others easily (with the exception of the aktimates, where I'd say it's very even).

As has been noted, the software (while much improved) is poor...but 3rd party apps like bubbleupnp resolve this. The price seems to jump around a lot. I've seen it as low as £99 (buy as many as you can stack on your shelves at that price!), and above £250 (consider a stereo solution like the aktimates instead).

...and while not relevent to the sound, it should be noted that this beautifully put together, oozes quality, and looks far more appealing than it does in the stock photos!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very durable, 7 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife coaches junior rugby, and I bought this to keep her warm and dry during those cold wet hours on the pitch. She reports that it's kept her nice and snug, and withstood the wind, rain, mud, and rough children nicely.

Not 5 stars due to current price (£119), but when on offer I'd snap it up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but cheaper available, 7 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's well made, bright, and attractive (assuming you like the design...buying it would be an odd move if not!).
There's not a lot of storage space inside, but you'd expect that given the 2d effect.
No issues with this, and am perfectly satisfied...the medium rating is soley because there are now a few very similar alternatives around for a lower price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems to help, 7 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly - if you have any medical issues with your elbow, get it seen by a doctor or physio...wearing an inappropriate support can cause more harm than good.

That said, this one fits well, is easily applied, and washes without problem. Offered the support I required without being obtrusive.

1.0 out of 5 stars Flawed, 5 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On the one hand, this is pretty cheap - on the other, it really isn't a lot of use.

Firstly, despite the picture, there is no corner coverage here - if the phone is dropped and lands any way other than perfectly flat on it's back, it will get damaged.

Secondly, as stated in the description, this case covers up the charging port. You know, the one you'll need to use every single day. Great bit of ergonomic design, that!

Seller was fine and gave me a 50% refund as the case doesn't match the picture, but I can't really recommend the item - I picked up a gel case for half the price that offers better protection, and lets me charge the phone!

2.0 out of 5 stars Too close to the buttons, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Positives:
Bright, attractive colour.
Fits well, seems durable, and good value.
Certainly offers protection for minor scuffs (and childrens mucky hands!)

Negatives:
Only one - but it's a big one. The cover has a cut out for the four buttons individually, rather than exposing that whole area. While this offer more protection, it means it is sometimes difficult to press the buttons (as they are now flush with the cover, rather than protruding from the surface. Worse, sometimes when you press them they get stuck beneath the lip of the cover and have to be eased out.
I've had to cut mine with scissors and the aesthetic effort is not the best!

2.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a design flaw..., 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These seem well made, and quite good value at under a fiver. They're pretty difficult to get on the controller, but once in place remain secure, and they certainly do their job protecting the thumbsticks of the PS4.

The problem, though, is that when the sticks are at maximum travel, the covers (particularly on the larger pair) touch the body of the controller, meaning they add resistance when "rolling" the sticks around their travel. This may bot be a problem for some, but left me with the uncomfortable feeling the sticks weren't fully pressed. I've removed them now.
