Panasonic ALL8 Wireless Speaker System (White)
Panasonic ALL8 Wireless Speaker System (White)
Price: £301.69

4.0 out of 5 stars In the words of Bette Davis, fasten your seatbelts..., 23 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's going to be a bumpy ride.....
Actually this is a fairly good speaker. Better head on, rather than to the side. Copes with world music fairly well. If you can play a hurdy gurdy through it , it's good enough! No idea what pairing is like as I was given one to review only. Early reviews were fairly negative, probably because the set up is a bit pants using a combination of holding down buttons and messing around with iPod settings and the actual Panasonic Music app.
There is a page sheet of instructions. Supposedly it only likes connecting to a lower powered wireless network connection.

WHATEVER HAPPENS YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO UPDATE THE FIRMWARE. Of course when I did it put a duplicate set of the ipod and the speaker on the apps listing. Then it crashed after two days (sulked and wouldn't play a song). So I reset it, reloaded the app, and it seemed to behave.

So, not for the faint hearted or the highly strung. Check you can get the app before you purchase (not for Windows 8.1, no audio input and no Bluetooth).
I think the best course of action is breath in, follow the longwinded set up instructions, which involve multicoloured flashing lights like a digital pregnancy test (aim for blue).. You'll then be asked to update the firmware, which will make a mess of your original settings. Check the dratted thing actually plays a song.
Now breath, pour yourself a stiff drink. Delete the app, turn over the instructions and reset the speaker to factory settings.
Set it all up again with clean instructions. Well anyway, if I don't update this you'll know it worked!

I had a lot of angst trying to work out how to get it to shuffle play within a genre. Finally I sussed out that there were the usual buttons just in funny positions on the screen.. It's a pain that you have to go through an app to control your ipod. I can't get a remote to work with it, so no fast way to stop it if the phone rings.

Verdict, it is a nice speaker, and outperforms my previous connects with the ipod as a music server. If you can get it to behave in the first instance it's easy to use. Bit pricey if you have a low pain threshold. That post purchase evaluation regret may kick in unnecessarily. I have enough angst heaping abuse on my two Sony devices when they get bolshie to want another uppity piece of silicon not to just meekly work for me.


Philips HP6392/00 Precision Body Hair Trimmer
Philips HP6392/00 Precision Body Hair Trimmer

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb safe and so useful, 22 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Unlike precision epilators this has a bar of cutters and a very gentle motion. It doesn't hurt and it doesn't jump around, so it feels very safe to use around the eyebrows and it's easier to create a line. I give up using tweezers after ten minutes because of the pain factor. Fair hair makes my bushy eyebrows less noticeable, but this produced a good job within a few minutes. Just twist the end cap to insert the aaa battery which comes with it. Switch on and go

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard pounding insole, 18 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For running shoes I guess- I've tried the soft insoles for daily wear and they are nice and cushioned. This is fairly hard in comparison. The men jbit just means it's size 8 upwards- the women's is size 8 downwards. They are both for wide fitting shoes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sadly a fault on this item made it useless, 18 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Be sure to check that there are no manufacturing faults on the item before you apply it. The sample we received had a mark in the centre so we ended up giving up on it as it interfered with the clarity of the display. I would have been very unhappy if this was not a free sample!

4.0 out of 5 stars Substance over style, 15 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is just a cover for the back and edges of your phone- so you may wish to also invest in a screen protector. I found that I had to attach it feet first so that it fitted over the various buttons easily. The feel isn't that brilliant. All I wanted it for was to protect a phone for prototyping- not for social use. For this purpose it works excellently. For my own phone in daily use I prefer a book type cover to protect the screen and something that has a little more style and a nicer material. Otherwise looks rugged enough


Braun SE810 Face Epilator and Facial Cleansing Brush

Price: £49.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Better for the brush accessory than the epilator, 14 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm less keen on this as an epilator- it's a bit painful and it jumped when I was trying to tentatively remove a few eyebrow hairs. However the brush part is brilliant for polishing the face- just add some sort of face wash gel. comes with an AA Duracell battery- so works straight out of the box. You can replace this by twisting the coin grooved end cap at the base.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant evolution of a trusted formula, 14 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's the same blades as they have been selling for a while matched with a newly designed handle with a bit of sprung steel and a circular joint- I just got offered this because I buy the blades for himself on subscribe and save. He loves it compared to the old design because it reacts to face contours better. there are other versions with more spare blades in the packs- over time they may be at a better rate than just spare blades. Only gripe is that the sprung steel bit means that the razor no longer fits in the plastic cradle that used to sit on a spare blade pack- might take a little surgery with a pair of pliers

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful toy!, 13 Mar. 2015
Superb TV (it's lovely to have such a thin bezel around the edge at last which doesn't distract the eye from the screen. Personally I don't need all the bells and whistles- just a sharp clear picture and the sound through my separate amp so I can connect as many devices as I like (only two HDMI outs!). It's amazong how light it is- vey happy

4.0 out of 5 stars a bit of ouch, but solid, 12 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Reasonably nice grip and a variety of heads. Still a bit ouchy to use. My legs were a bit itchy afterwards. Only prolonged use will show if it's durable. In the meantime a good mix of accessories to keep annoying hairs at bay.

4.0 out of 5 stars fizzy and green, 11 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Slight problem, this dissolved into a frothy murky green potion (looks like something served up by Tolkien's ents), so it's very hard to see how far the tablet has dissolved before you swig. Only a full dose will show if it is fully working. Bit mouth puckering if you end up having to chomp partially dissolved tablet.
