2.0 out of 5 stars Curved Keyboard = Typos, 25 Aug 2014
No issues with connectivity, superb battery life, but even as a two finger typist, this keyboard is extremely annoying. The unusual shape causes me to make so many typos that it is practically unusable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Look Good, Sound Good., 19 Aug 2014
These are an extremely decent pair of headphones. They look good, they sound brilliant and, they're comfortable. They are perhaps a little tighter on the ears than I wanted, but this is probably better for when you're on the move.

Listening to Spotify now, grungy rock, reggae, drum and bass, house/garage all sound punchy. Bass is there but not overpowering, sound is nice and clear. Copes well with higher volumes albeit with a little bass distortion right up at the top end, but jeez these are so loud you wouldn't want to keep them that high anyway.

The bloke sitting next to me says they're not leaking too much, he can just about hear a little bit of hi-hat, and I have the volume up pretty high. An hour in and my ears are getting a bit on the warm side, but I guess that's to be expected.

The 'sharing' feature of these headphones is a bit gimmicky, but has one useful side-effect in that the 3.5mm cable can plug into either can, this is nice when listening at different computers because you can have the cable trail away to whatever side works best for you.

Just bought them in HMV reduced to £39.99, All in all very happy - at £40 they're unbelievable, but even at £90 I think I'd have been satisfied - just what's with the marketing BS? I'm not sure if I'm "awake and aware" enough to actually own these...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seeing as how you can pay anything up to £100 or more for something extremely similar, this machine is great value at under £30.

Minced up 2kg of pork the other day, and although the process is fairly slow, and extremely noisy, the grinder itself performed well.

All in all much less aggro than the Porkert no.10 hand mincer it has replaced! (and easier to clean)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not convinced, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sure this is a well built espresso maker, and it certainly has no problem on the induction hob. Looks nice, and performs well enough, but I think the coffee comes out a bit on the bitter side, but I'm still trying to figure out if that's just down to the coffee I'm using though, but don't think I had this issue with the Aeropress I used to use.

Anyway, I'm just not convinced it's any better than one half it's price - there's a couple in the £45-50 region that I'm sure would be just as good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 28 Oct 2013

I now understand the reason woodburner owners rate this as the best splitter - spent 4 hours splitting logs yesterday and with a well aimed blow, this is like a hot knife through butter on all but the knottiest rounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality built to last, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This wok is undeniably expensive compared to others available on Amazon - but when it arrives you can tell it is worth every penny. It's extremely well built, lightweight but solid, and the mechanism that is used to screw the handle into the body is very well engineered. The bowl is also a really good shape and, due to the removable handle, goes in the dishwasher with plenty of room to spare!

I see this wok lasting me many many years, so I think it's worth the premium price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lasted 2 holes, 2 Oct 2013
One star for looking smart, one star for the manufacturing quality, but the fact that these are too short means that by the 3rd hole on Sunday I noticed that my new headcover was already missing. To be honest it was not a great fit in the first place as the bit that covers the actual club head is marginally too small.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy Chappy!, 9 July 2013

Much, much better than having a massive drying rack perpetually erected in the spare room! Sturdy and plenty of space.

CPU temp dropped to a regular 25-29 degs. Have in the past spent big money on coolers, but after my experience with this one I don't see why I ever would again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Massive Sausage, 9 July 2013

These work well, taste great and are easy enough to load onto your stuffer - as long as you grease up your nozzle!

They make an impressive looking sausage with a right chunky girth!
