5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best stocking-filler ever., 16 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bernard (Paperback)
What's not to like! Illustrations are lovely and original, the story
is charming, kids (and probably adults) will love it.

Very clear and friendly text - it would be a great resource in getting
young children interested in reading.

More like this please.

Very high quality & thick enough cable (but not too thick).
Connections are solid, no noise or hissing at all, only difference in
sound is that it's very (very) slightly quieter, but no loss of quality at all.

OK when used landscape. Wobbles around in the hot shoe as it is not a snug fit whatsoever.
When used portrait it's completely useless. It moves around A LOT in the hot shoe so you can never
be sure if it is actually straight - every time you nudge or touch it the reading completely changes, if you
take it out and put it back in then the reading will be completely different. I tried pressing it in to the top / bottom
of the hot shoe to see if this gave consistent results but could not get the same level twice.

Manfrotto... you have let me down.

Great quality, looks durable & will protect well.
Fits the AKG K485 (Bluetooth) well - tight fit so no moving around
in the case.

I ordered the larger one & decided it was too large, seller (Audio123) refunded promptly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound., 5 Jun. 2014
- GREAT sound! Really clear throughout - crystal clear vocals even alongside really deep bass (eg Purity Ring, Portishead).

Battery life is amazingly good, BT is a good as cable on my phone, not so great on 2011 iMac - but that's the macs fault. Volume and pause is controlled through the headset. Next / Prev tracks are missing, but not a deal breaker for the price.

Bass is excellent, not boosted like some (so you can hear what the songs actually sound like) - can always EQ if you prefer
over the top bass. Mid & highs are clear and crisp throughout, I can't find fault with the sound.

I can hear a lot of detail in areas that before (through a decent 5.1 system & other headphones) were missing.
What HiFi said they were too hot - I don't agree. The head band could be thicker padding - but its still comfortable,
and will possibly soften up with use.

Because they are so clear, you can hear compression obviously when listening to low bit-rate material.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great but..., 19 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DiRT 3 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
The gameplay and physics etc are really excellent - but the races are SO short.
I find that more time is spent in menus and listening to recorded messages from
your 'team' saying awful things like "COOL RACE BRO YOU SMASHED IT"...

The Raleigh rounds are almost all under 1:30 and some can be completed in under 1m.
Just when you are getting in to a session it ends. Highly annoying.

The basis for a 10/10 game are there in the actual driving but too many things get in the way.


The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch (S.F. MASTERWORKS)
The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch (S.F. MASTERWORKS)
by Philip K. Dick
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Brain Meltingly Strange, 19 Mar. 2014
My brain melted upon finishing the end of this book.
I couldn't stop thinking about it for many weeks afterwards - something
few books achieve.

This makes most modern science fiction plots seem simplistic and dull,
it is (probably) my favourite book of all time.

Canon Lens Hood ES-71II For EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens
Price: £20.75

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, but too expensive, 26 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Adds a much needed length to the 50 f/1.4
better for steady shots as more to grab, you can hold the hood without touching
focus ring, makes the lens look less like a toy.

It should come with the lens - its completely essential.
As with all lens hoods - its a bit of a rip off for a plastic ring with fuzzy felt in it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not work, 26 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does not work at all, other chargers do work in my car so it is not the cigarette lighter's fault.
I ordered a replacement and that didn't work either.
WHAT IS THE BLOODY POINT Just charge more and make something that actually works.

1.0 out of 5 stars SLOW, 26 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
VERY slow charge when charging two items at once. Buy a multi-plug adapter instead.
Good for travel if space is VERY critical and you have all night to charge. Not good for much else.
