Great quality, very classy product. Looks really good sitting on the worktops of a modern kitchen. Would definitely recommend if prepared to pay that bit more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Desirable product, but not without faults!, 11 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very usable item due to its size. Can be easily removed from bike and kept in pocket , bag or house. Very bright light for its size. However, these lights offer very little protection in even a light shower. My rear light got wet in the lightest of showers and gave very intermittent results: would turn itself on and sometimes would not be able to turn it off!. My lights do not last longer than 2/3 hours, making long journeys in bad light a bit of a gamble. Lastly, they are difficult to charge on a laptop; the rubber cable gets in the way meaning you have to prop the laptop up.

In summary, I do not regret buying but would be very cautious about setting off in dark/damp conditions on a long ride.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed, 16 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having enjoyed The Age of Absurdity I eagerly purchased this book. I can only say that I wish I had acted more rapidly in obtaining a refund from Amazon! I have felt really let down by this book and can only advise other readers to save their money. As others reviewers have said, it is basically an in-depth discussion on Proust and Joyce and it is difficult to see the relevance of this to the premise of the title. I may be missing the point, but I am feeling like I just don't get it! I persevered with it but the references to Proust and Joyce are far too numerous. I fail to see what the sexual perversions/preferences of these two authors have to do with the "embracing the Ordinary". The end is a lot of self-indulgent rambling; which is unlikely to be of interest to anybody other than the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frothy coffee, 13 Jan. 2011

Simple way to make frothy milk; much better than the battery operated whisks which never work properly. The cork mat that comes with it is very useful.
