Riedel O Cabernet/ Merlot, Syrah Decanter

This is a very good set. There's just something about drinking a good wine from a light, delicate glass. And delicate they are - we've gone through a few - you can break one with a stern look so plan on some replacements...

As others have commented on, the plastic links in this Suunto watchstrap perish far to readily. I am now on my third strap in five years.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you plan to use the iCube link..., 3 Feb. 2016
Good overall sound with simple, direct access to all the functions - nothing buried in multiple button presses - and a quality build. Excellent clean tone. The modulations and delays are basic but sound good. The emulated heavy distortions don't sound good to my ear, but fair enough for the price. Unfortunately it has one significant design penny-pinch:

The 40GX is heavily marketed around the iCube link feature, making for a really simple Garage Band solution and that's why I went for it. With the supplied 4-way audio cable into my ipad I have a home recording studio for the price of the app. The iCube link out is just what you hear from the amp, so you can record shaped sound or just keep it clean and adjust with Garage Band - or both. The recording side works really well but is let down by playback back through the iCube link sounding relatively mushy with a obvious rolled-off treble. At first I thought I'd got something wrong but there's no control for this input other than the main volume. Owners might like to compare playing through the clean guitar jack and icube inputs to hear the difference.
Roland - if you are listening - how much did you save by compromising the iCube preamp design - a couple of dollars? I'm surprised other reviews haven't pick up on this & Roland are flogging it as a major plus point.

This aside there's a lot to like at sub £150, so it just scrapes four stars.

This review is from: Claber Kiros Kit (DIY & Tools)
Really good quality hose reel set. The box has adequate guidance on assembly, albeit via picture diagrams. When wall mounted the frame hangs from the top handle and the reel does tend to swing out and bang against the wall somewhat when reeling in the hose - a minor point though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for its class, 24 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think this impact driver would be an excellent choice for the majority of people fastening with short/medium screws. It does this with minimum fuss and is relatively light and quiet for an impact driver.

I used it with an existing 1.5AH battery and this results in the handle being at little short for the weight as the battery forms the lower part of the grip. Perhaps a 2AH battery would be better here. It could not remove 4 inch screws from some heavy-duty panel stud work and I had to resort to an heavier and noisier 18 volt model - admittedly this still couldn't shift a couple of the screws unaided so it was a pretty tough ask. In most situations, however, it coped very well and I have no hesitation recommending it for a general use tool.

We have both sizes of this casserole dish and love them both. Elegant design, good weight in the base and easy to clean.

Heavy and solid, this vase looks good in the flesh and has a weighty base for good stability.

Happy to report that the toaster looks fairly good, works well and toasts bread evenly - unlike many toasters I've experienced. The chrome effect controls are not hugely convincing but it is not a major issue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Faulty preamp, 7 Oct. 2015

Had to return mine as it had a faulty tuner/preamp block. Did a little research and apparently this is a common fault with this eSonic unit, the battery terminals are problematic.

I got the silver version. Easy to place with a strong spring action and no issues with steel string acoustic or electric. I should imagine, that at this price, quality control may be an issue so those having problems have will have been unlucky.
