3.0 out of 5 stars Might be worth what it is being sold for if the workmanship and quality were better., 4 May 2016
Looked a sensible solution to festival toilet problems and reviews looked good.
Went ahead and bought one with two sets of bags.
On arrival all of the plastic ferrule feet were broken and shattered into small pieces. They are made of exremely poor quality light hard plastic and as useful as a chocolate fireguard.
The fastening velcro strip at the top is also weak and the plastic buckle used to tighten the fastening strip also broke on first use as it is also made of poor quality cheap plastic.
I emailed the company informing them of this but absolutely no response so zero marks for customer service.
Bought some better quality washer ferrules and fitted them so add a few extra quid to this as you will also need them!
Haven't tried the bags but the stool itself is OK, on the small side but OK as an emergency bog in a small tent in the middle of a field.
£20 for this? - not convinced. If it was better quality maybe, but for a cheaply made mess of poor quality plastic and shoddy workmanship not really worth it. Time will tell as to its longevity but not holding my breath.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great appliance - reputation fully justified., 22 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First one I got sent simply didn't turn on so sent back and Amazon CS had a new one sent out within days.
My first breadmaker so have still only tried the basic white loaf recipe in various sizes using the timer.
So easy to use and the bread it produces is fantastic. Have not subsequently bought any bread from a shop yet.
Am now about to get adventurous and try some more exotic recipes.
Really well put together and it really is a question of shoving the specified ingredients into the pan, and setting it off.
So simple even I can use it.
Went for Panasonic rather than some other makes because of the reviews of their breadmakers and this reputatiom appears to be justified on my short experience so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and does what it should., 22 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are looking at a headphone amp then you probably know what they are all about.
Cheap, well made and does what it should especially for harder to drive headphones.
Battery life great.
Now just got to find an arrangement to strap it to my Sony NWZ A15.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic DAP but use a LOD cable to bring it to life., 22 April 2015
Bought this a couple of weeks ago to replace my ageing and buggy Cowon D3. The D3 however, had the nest sound quality I had heard from a low to mid tier DAP and reading the reviews of this Sony NWZ-A15 I thought this would be just the ticket to replace it.
Got it for around £135 from the Sony Store with Topcashback and a now expired Sony code. Missed out on the £25 Qobuz voucher though.
Arrived and I was quite excited to see what it sounded like playing FLAC and some 24/96 files.
Loaded it up and away I went.
I was distinctly underwhelmed with the sound quality compared to my Cowon D3. Seemed thin, brittle and devoid of any warmth whatsoever. Changing any of the settings did not help.
Tried it with a Topping NX1 amp and similiarly disappointed.
I was on the verge of returning it thinking I had made a mistake. Made a last effort and bought a Fiio L5 LOD cable and tried that.
Wow!
What a difference. SQ easily now up there with the Cowon and even better with the amp attached.
Playing through a variety of headphones from Sennheiser IE6s, AKG 450s and also my trusty Monoprice 8323s the SQ is now fantastic.
The LOD makes all the difference. Still surprised at that it needs the LOD given all the stellar reviews I had read, but believe me, if you are not happy with the sound then try the Fiio L5 and your listening experience will be transformed.
Battery life is fantastic and although there is a lack, compared to the Cowon, of EQ options you really dont need more than are available.
Drag and drop, wide range of compatibility and microsdxc compatibility (running a 64 GB in mine) make this a fantastic DAP for those for whom the SQ and battery life from a phone just aren't quite enough.
Buy the L5 LOD though. Makes all the difference.

This review is from: Ammonium Sulphamate 1Kg
Worked as expected. Excellent as a 'compost accelerator' - killed everything plant like it touched including some big woody trunks over a period of a week or so. Well packed and sent within a week.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy them. You won't regret it., 16 Jun. 2014

Great sound and very precise. For the money they are amazing. Only slight negative is the pads can get a bit uncomfortable after a period and the recommended replacements are the Beyerdynamic EDT250 velour pads which are around £22 if you wanted to go for it. I can imagine the combination of the two is great. Never taken them out, just used inside in PC soundcard but they seem quite efficient and I can't see many MP3 players/phones having problems driving them.

Dispatched quickly and well packed.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works fine on LG G Pad 8.3, 31 Mar. 2014

Used on my LG G Pad 8.3 and works flawlessly.
Seems relatively sturdy. Dispatched quickly and well packed.

The 45 deg angle on the plus is useful as well as it stops the connection getting in the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well on my G Pad, 2 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mine arrived within a few days. Branded as IVSO on the metal clasp, Fits perfectly and protects the tablet well. When you open the cover the tablet wakes up and when the cover is closed, it goes back to sleep.
The stand function in landscape is not brilliant and does not look that safe and no real option to stand in portrait mode but I don't use that anyway.
Looks really good, kind of an iPad clone design.
As to longevity, it looks solid enough but will have to wait a few months to see if it justifies the price tag of £12-95 that I paid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little Unit, 2 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All I wanted it for was to play video files of varying formats stored on a hard drive on my TV with little or no fuss. the Android boxes seemed great but a bit flaky and i didn't want to have to mess around adding extra programmes etc.

Installed this via HDMI to my TV, plugged in a 1TB portable drive (which the unit powers) and it all connected immediately with my wifi. I had wanted to do it by ethernet wire but haven't worked that out yet as it did not work first time. However the wifi connection is so flawless I don't yet need to. With this, I can transfer and manage files going through the device via my computer as well as play anything from the device and hard drive. I have played a lot of file types and it has managed them all. The picture is also superb depending on the source file.
I did not need extra TV services but things like netflix and youtube are there if you want them - not a huge amount else.

The unit is small, smartly designed and works simply. I am quite good with computers, but networks, streaming and so on are normally a mystery to me. However, I think that without realising it, I am both networking and streaming - the unit is that simple to operate.

Really pleased with it - simple and works well.
