5.0 out of 5 stars If you having problems finding the original, this is the one, 26 Oct. 2015

It's the single version. Not the live version, not the 2012 remaster. When you think of Whiter Shade of Pale, it's that one.

I got this for free in a daily deal. And it's really lovely, really pretty, and really short

Do not buy this at the stupid full price. However, if you can get this in a deal it is a well made, nicely finished, piece of plastic that does what it says, really well.

1.0 out of 5 stars I never reviewed this - ZeleSouris Ergonomic Design USB etc., 12 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not the product that I bought. This is not the product that I reviewed. Someone has taken my 4-star review of another keyboard by the same manufacturer and transferred it to this one. I have no idea of the quality of this one, I have never seen this one, I did not buy this one. Edited review down to one star, because using my review (and an indeterminate number of others) to bulk out the 4 and 5 star reviews is disingenuous at best. (whoever did it, even if inadvertently, it should not have happened)

Below is my original review for the keyboard I bought (Which was, and is, an adequate game board)

Really good. I been using a Razer for the last couple of years and was looking at the Orbweaver. This here was a quarter of the price. It's solid and well made. Loses a star because the backlight is a bit rubbish. I can only see it from directly above. Still I've set it up on a little easel stand so it's upright and it's acting as a secondary keyboard for Elite Dangerous.
Can't fault it for the money

3.0 out of 5 stars Nya...It'll do, 12 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fiddly, can't get the resolution just right. I can't get Elite Dangerous to recognise the sniper button. (I'm not saying is doesn't, just I not found out how yet) Heavy. Fiddly, I can't get the dead zone just right.
I really like the metal wheel, and you can unlock the ratchet and spin to the bottom of a long document.
The software occasionally forgets all my settings after a reboot, so the cursor crawls across the screen so I have to set it all up again.
It feels very nice in the right hand,
Well made but needed a powered USB. Couldn't run it in the same socket as my previous mouse (a USB on the Keyboard which was useful from the point of view of cable-fu)

It's good in parts. I'll get used to it. Very glad I got it in a deal and not full price

After painful dentistry, I couldn't talk for a few days. This was brilliant for scribbling simple messages like "shut up" and "Stop prodding my face" that sort of thing. Really simple but took a while to find out it's the menu button on the bezel brings up the in-app menu. but so useful, so free

Couple of good numbers, not quite as much fun as I remembered. I'm only putting these few words up here because I got one of those emails, otherwise I'd mostly forgotten I'd bought this

The most scary and intrusive set of permissions ever demanded by a faceless corporation. I chickened out. It is not installed on my device, and probably never will be

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice bit of schmutter, 12 Sept. 2015

2X - I normally wear a 3X, but you can't always get a three-X Tee unless there's some bad joke about pies on the front. This is a good sized 2X, nice quality shirt, good quality transfer (very slightly off to one side on mine, which is not enough to lose a star over)

5 stars is "I love it" and every time I see it in a mirror I find myself saying, "I love this shirt"... also I never had one where the back is printed as well

3.0 out of 5 stars I woke up and I'd bought this in my sleep, 15 July 2015

I don't know enough to review this.I have no way-posts against which to judge it. Lila Downs has a fine voice by anyone's standards, she has power as well as emotional depth and range. Vocally, she reminds me of Nina Hagen in her heyday. The musicianship and production are superb. Really good. That'd be a five star review right there.
If you were to take a fourteen-year-old Death Metal fan and play them Tirolean om-pah-pah music for the first time, or make Inspector Morse listen to the back catalogue of Cradle of Filth, you get roughly where I'm coming from. I have close to zero cultural overlap with this music so I can only tell you if I like it or not, not if it's any good.
That's why it's three stars for me. I quite like some of it.
Zapata ze Queda is stonkingly good, the sort of tune you find yourself humming for days, really ... days.
La Reyna del Inframundo is another one I really like. the introduction sounds like Hava Nagila's drunken cousin and it then goes into a sort of Spanish version of Carolientje by Willeke Alberti.
So if you can get your head around someone that sounds a bit like Nina Hagen singing songs that sound a bit like Dutch carnival songs in Spanish as orchestrated by Weird Al Yankowic (in one of his Polka crazes), then this is the album for you
