5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and great product, 15 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good value for money and excellent product.
My wife has been using this for about 3 weeks now after being a heavy smoker for many years.
She says she definitely prefers this vaporizer to normal cigarettes. And she is saving about £8.50 a day by using the liquipal...

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring..., 7 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Lightbulbs (Audio CD)
I bought this album after being quite impressed with F&M's previous offering "Transparent Things". Their sound is basically surreal lyrics whispered over electropop baselines, and worked pretty well on the previous album.

However, it seems that this band are a bit of a one-trick pony, as the songs on "Lightbulbs" are pretty much a carbon copy of the tunes on "Transparent Things" - albeit delivered in a more lacklustre style.

It's not all bad though, "Dishwasher" has some nice quirky keyboard riff going on, and "Pterodactyls" is quite catchy...

but 2 OK songs on an album of 12 tracks or whatever it is, is just not good enough... if i were you, i wouldn't waste my money on this album

2.0 out of 5 stars Uncomfortable and don't seal in the sound as well as cheaper Sennheisers, 3 April 2008
Hi,
I bought a pair of these a couple of days ago after the cable on my CX300s became worn out next to the headphone jack. I was very happy with those so i thought i'd try out this model as perhaps it might be an improvement on the very satisfactory CX300s.

I must say that i was pretty disappointed as these headphones are inferior in several important ways to the cheaper CX300s.

Firstly, they are just really uncomfortable - perhaps it is a problem with my ears, but i tried all the different ear buds and found that the solid plastic part of the headphone would chafe uncomfortably in my ear. I even tried using the buds from my previous phones on these (which were very comfortable on those) but still was uncomfortable and my ears felt sore after a short while.

My next gripe was that these phones do not block out external sounds as effectively as the CX300s and so the sound of inane station announcements on the london undergrond on my way to work was not filtered out - very annoying!

Lastly, and this is a minor point, but is the straw that has broke the camel's back for me:- the headphones are NOT of the style where the cable that leads to the right earphone wraps around the back of your neck. I prefer these as you can take the headphones out of your ears and leave them dangling round your neck. Whereas with these you can't do that.

On the positive side, the sound quality is pretty good, but then again, so is the sound quality of the cheaper models.

So, i think i'll be binning these and getting another pair of CX300s - they're only £20 - i recommend you do the same!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, 21 Nov. 2006
great selection of tracks, heavy in places, jazzy in others. But all are very listenable and wont lose their appeal too quickly. Particularly like Jazz Note and Spaced Invader...

On this CD you can hear scratches on some of the records and the needle actually jumps in a couple of places. I actually find this quite refreshing and authentic!

Definitely worth buying....

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Very Buggy Machine!!!, 17 Jan. 2005
I bought this machine for 2 reasons. Firstly because it can play divx and xvid movies ( of which i have hundreds ). And secondly because it can play movies and other media directly from your computer using the built in ethernet port in the player. ( I have a 250gb hard disk full of films, and this would make it perfect to watch the movies without having to burn them onto cd)
This would make the Kiss DP 1500 the perfect dvd player in my eyes, or so I thought!
The problems occured when trying to configure the ip address of the dvd player so that it can play the media directly from the computer. It worked once, and then i decided to change the ip address of the player because i needed to change my computers ip address.
This was a big big mistake, as now the dvd player cannot connect to the computer no matter what i set the ip configuration to be! I tried resetting the machine, reinstalling the firmware, everything, and still it doesn't work. I have been fighting with it for weeks now, and am tempted to throw the machine out of the window!
So that's the main bug. However, there are several other annoying problems with the machine:
Sometimes you are watching a movie and the screen freezes and the machine becomes completely unresponsive. Pressing any button on the remote control or the player itsself has absolutely no effect! The only option is to pull the power cord out of the back and plug it in again!!
The subtitles for the divx movies are very small and characters for foreign languages are not displayed at all, meaning that my czech girlfriend has not got a clue what the subtitles are saying!
Pressing a particular button on the remote control is understood incorrectly by the machine (For example, when pressing the key "5" in the remote, the machine understands it as "8" ).
On the plus side, it does play divx movies, and the picture quality is really pretty good. Though it cannot handle high action scenes too well, and will sometimes freeze if there is too much action on the screen.
Overall, I'm very very disappointed with this machine, and have found owning it a very frustrating experience! Perhaps when a new version of the firmware for this machine is released, these problems will be fixed. But, after looking at some forums for owners of these machines ([...] i would not get my hopes up too high.
If you want a dvd player that can play divx movies, i recommend getting one from a more established brand, as it is more likely they will not have the cheek to release a player that is so full of bugs!
