3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sound but Vulnerable to Breakage, 1 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these phones just over a year ago and the plastic headband snapped in two yesterday when I picked them up (without exerting any undue pressure). They are still just about wearable taped up, albeit now rather loose-fitting after the breakage. It is disappointing they broke after only some 15 months of quite gentle usage and potential buyers may like to know there is this vulnerability. Otherwise the sound quality is excellent. The sliding selector switch for the 3 listening modes is a bit imprecise so that sometimes all the sound goes in just one ear and one has to fiddle with the switch to restore stereo audio.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent case but..., 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fine looking case and excellent vfm, but as others have noted the hole for the camera lens is not quite big enough or doesn't align properly so that there is always a shadow on the image in my case in the top left corner. I hardly ever use the camera function but other users might find it annoying to have to remove the case to take photos without this shadow. I would like to give 5 stars but for this reason can only give 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is probably the best disc I've ever bought in over 40 years of record collecting, an absolute knock-out from start to finish, I had no idea Monteverdi was this good. A revelation. Absolutely wonderful performances from L'Arpeggiata and Christina Pluhar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Recording, 9 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would strongly recommend this excellent recording to all those who love German lieder - Bernarda's beautiful voice and the very fine piano of Roger Vignoles are a winning combination. All in all outstandingly good, not to be missed by Schumann lovers.


The Poems of Alexander Pope
The Poems of Alexander Pope

Edition: Paperback
Price: £21.33

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Man's Pope, 4 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I find this volume physically off-putting and difficult to read. There are very copious and pedantic notes but little in the way of an overview so you tend to lose sight of the wood for the trees. None of the latin quotes are translated. It may be useful for reference but I find myself reluctant to read it. It would be better to
buy individual editions of the various poems.

London Clock Company 36019 Radio Controlled Wall Clock, 27cm, Light Wood

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Wall Clock, 4 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am very pleased with this fine quality clock which looks good and keeps excellent time, being radio-controlled. After inserting the battery we waited with bated breath and in just a few minutes the hands moved to the right time as if by magic. And the BST time change occurs automatically so that's one less timepiece to have to adjust manually. It may be somewhat pricier than other clocks on offer but is well
worth it for the extra quality of finish, with the attractive light wood surround.
All in all an excellent product I would not hesitate to recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Case for Kindle, 18 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good, sturdy case which fits the Kindle very well. Robust and well-made it
also looks smart and stylish. I find having the case also makes the Kindle easier to
hold, so one's reading sessions are made even more enjoyable. It seems to be good value for money, far cheaper than the Amazon case and just as good, albeit with no
reading light included. I would strongly advise anyone looking for a Kindle case to
choose this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Snag with streaming music from Apple laptop, 2 Jan 2011
This review is from: Revo Pico WiFi IR (Electronics)
I had intended to use the device for streaming music from my Apple laptop to my hifi, which according to the makers is possible ("stream music from your PC or MAC"). However
it turns out that although the device can read the files on the laptop it does not in fact support the AAC encoding format (the default format on iTunes), so it can't actually play any of the tracks. If one selects a track the display reads <empty> and nothing happens.
Internet radio is fun, useful if you need to know the weather forecast from Caracas or
the news from Timbuktu, ideal for language students and expats. But there are drawbacks: it takes a while to retune to another station, and sometimes on selecting a
station the display reads <network error> and nothing happens (and this can persist for hours or even days). Just lately the device has started 'forgetting' which network
to log on to, so after switching on there is a long wait, then <unable to connect> and one then has to manually select the correct broadband network from a list.
But the unit has given me a lot of fun, and I don't regret buying it in spite of everything.

I am very pleased with this item - it looks very smart, was easy, quick and enjoyable to assemble (no extra tools needed) and provides ample space for my BluRay player and BT V-box. All in all a great buy.
