4.0 out of 5 stars Great little player, 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some time ago I had bought a Sansa Fuse and liked it a lot. Nicely designed and good sound. However there were two things that I would have liked improved, battery life and a standard USB connection. The Sansa Clip + seemed to fit the bill and I was not disappointed. In addition it is as compact as it is possible to get and still retain a meaningful display, and the integrated clip is excellent. The buttons click positively and I found it easy to navigate the menus. (Make sure you set up as 'rest of the world' and not 'europe' to get the volume needed). It does feels nowhere near as solid as the Fuse and the display of course is much more basic, but the sound is every bit as good with just a touch more punch and detail. This last point of course depends very much on the headphones used and it is worth upgrading. The AKG 420 and 430 sound good with this especially if you do not get on with in ear headphones like me. Overall very pleased, if only it had a metallic body, but then it would cost a lot more!

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking but uncomfortable, 30 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If packaging was important then these earbuds would win. However the acid test is quality, comfort and sound. As these did not satisfy the first two criteria I did not test them for the third. Quality at first glance appears great, but when I put these in my ear the right hand bud popped an crackled as if the diaphragm inside was flexing inside. Despite a wide range of ear tips provided I just could not get a comfortable fit (other earbuds have been fine). It must be down the the shape and design of the aluminium earbuds themselves. Overall though an underwhelming experience which did not encourage me to even listen to them. Sent them back for a refund, no problems with Amazon :-).

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to set up & Use, 30 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fit to the clip holes on the back of the Xbox, plug in and switch on. Follow the on-screen instructions and in less than 5 mins you are up and connected to your wireless network. Cheaper than the official Microsoft alternative but I still think it is expensive compared to an ordinary wireless dongle. On the whole worth it though as it is designed to fit discretely to the x-box and so far the wireless connection has has been fast and reliable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good entertainment for youngsters, 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a child I read the books over and over. I have done the same with children of my own. While I accept the book and the imagination will usually be superior to the film, I was just a little disappointed. The production is good, the child actors were okay, improving in the third film. However the film deviated from the books, and not in a good way, particularly in the last film. In my opinion this robbed the story of a little magic. On balance a good video to have for youngsters on a rainy Sunday afternoon but read the books first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really does make a difference, 23 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this for my parents after having one bought for me last Christmas. The difference between using this and wine straight from the bottle is not a small one. Definitely worth it and thoroughly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good sound, poor build quality, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Super open sound, clear, smooth and detailed. Bass sufficient but an EQ tweak helps. So why only two stars. The build quality is poor to the point of being dangerous. On selecting the best fitting tips I noticed the grill from the left hand tube had detached itself and was missing (it was there when I took them out of the packaging). Could not find it anywhere. Had to go to the doctors to check it was not still in my ear! Sent them back for a refund and have not the confidence to buy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple but supremely effective, 2 Sep 2013

This is now a permanent fixture on my bedside table. It supports a nexus 7 in either landscape or portrait perfectly and without any chance of scratching. It will also flat pack for easy transportation. A simple good looking design.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too big and insecure, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The display is OK and easy to read, if a little slow to respond to changes in speed. It is also versatile in where it is put but it is so big overall that it looks a little odd. However I could have lived with that if it was not for the transmitter. It only just fits around a suspension fork leg but 'pings' off unless treated with kid gloves; no good for off-roading.

2.0 out of 5 stars Does the job but overpriced, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Far from being 'quality' as expressed in other reviews, the blower and the brush are little better than Christmas cracker plastic and rubber. Yes, they do the job but it hardly feels like you are using a 'professional' kit. You get a generous quantity of fluid which should literally last you a lifetime as you need very little at any one time. The cloth bag is nice, quality material with the Viking embossed logo but after consideration an additional separate cloth would have been better. You would not need to empty the contents each time you used it, and it would be easier to keep clean. I could have overlooked the shortcomings if it have been half the price but at the moment cannot recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars An unfinished work, 24 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In this 'collection' you would be hard pushed to recognize the genre. The stories are incomplete and often finished with the words 'to be continued'. There are a couple of initially good ideas but they are no where near fully developed. If I had to have paid for this book then I would consider I had been ripped off and only given one star.
