5.0 out of 5 stars on BBC1 and just loved the sound, 24 July 2014

Heard them for the first time on 'The Graham Norton' show, on BBC1 and just loved the sound. The album is minimilistic in its approach using space and haunting female vocals to great effect. It would be wrong to compare them against existing bands but certainlly I put them in the sound bracket as Portishead/Massive Attack..only more laid back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mucho recommended if you like that Jill Scott/Angie Stone, 24 July 2014

Quite a change from previous albums. Heard her play a few tracks from the album on 'Later with Jools Holland' and was blown away, and had to buy it. Stand out tracks for me, 'Jerk RIbs' and 'Friday Fish Fry' - can't go wrong with a strong horn section, and a soul/no-soul crossover blend. Mucho recommended if you like that Jill Scott/Angie Stone vibe

5.0 out of 5 stars Works like a dream, 19 May 2014

Was a little bit worried about ordering this from China, with such a long lead time and no current reviews, but went for it anyway. Took about 2.5 weeks to get here, well within the time they stated.

Securely wrapped in a hard cardboard parcel - it survived dropping through my letter box onto a tiled floor! Well wrapped inside, it also came with appropriate screwdrivers and 'pryers' for helping remove the case.

Replaced the screen fine (as always removing the bezel from the existing screen is the hardest part if you don't buy a replacement) and it worked first time. Thoroughly pleased!

Battery charge doesn't last long at all. WIthin a day the front bumper came off after one too many collisions with skirting boards (think another reviewed mentioned this) from my 7 year old son. However when it is working, really goes quite quick.

I'm sure there are better products out there than this one :\

Took me quite a while to find this one but so glad i eventually did. Having got all his other stuff (including all his various guises) I was looking forward to this one. Stand out tracks for me personally are 'Audio Two: Top Billin' ' and the 'Nas: one love' cut.

Was delivered on time and came securely wrapped

Better, in my opinion, than the first album, and the first album was good.. Just buy it and be happy that you did.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, but with catches, 26 Feb 2012
Working in IT i did quite a bit of looking around before settling on this. I needed an ethernet bridge to connect my win 7 pc to my existing WAN ( to replace a now broken Linksys WET11) and given the price, reviews and product information, it seemed to fit the bill.

The other reviewers are correct when they say that the 'quick start' guide that comes with this AP assumes a lot of prior knowledge and if you don't know a bit about IP's and network setup in general, it may take some time. However 10 mins later I had it set up in 'client' mode, connected to my existing WAN (from my Netgear DGND330v2 Router) , obtaining an IP from my existing DHCP server and away I went. Connection speeds were very good and the signal appeared to be strong. At this point, my review would have been easily a 5.

Then, I realised that my Aiport Express remote speakers that i use to stream music around the house weren't showing up in iTunes. And nor was my Android remote app for controlling iTunes working. After some digging, i realised that the TP-LInk AP wasn't handling multicast DNS properly. I mailed support with a detailed description of the solution and to their credit, they came back quite quickly and told me to enable 'WDS' on the Wireless settings page - we then swapped mails for a few days when that didn't work ( the AP couldn't get an IP at all then, i tried changing router settings, using WEP encryption + lots of other stuff) and eventually I gave up. Whether it was the AP itself or some strange interaction between it and the Netgear router i have, i don't know. Either way, I've removed it and ended up cabling instead. Maybe i'll try it as a network repeater instead but if you need Bonjour/multicast dns support then certainly for me, it didn't work.
