5.0 out of 5 stars Good product, has the feel of quality to it., 10 April 2016

Well built, works as intended, no problems. Would buy again (for my endlessly iDevice-destroying household).

5.0 out of 5 stars Snug little case for my Asus Flip Chromebook, 6 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Needed a case for my latest bit of tech, an Asus C100 Chromebook, but didn't want anything too bulky or 'one size fits all'. This is really snug, looks great and feels light without being lightweight. The cordura-type outer fabric is pretty tough and the fleece interior makes the Chromebook easy to insert or retrieve. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Level 42 live and just utterly brilliant, 6 April 2016
This review is from: The River Sessions (Audio CD)
This is absolutely brilliant. Look beyond the cheesy album cover and you're going to get a classic Level 42 live set. Back in the day, I played "Physical Presence" to death, until the tape stretched, actually. Live, these gentlemen are full of energy and skill, and yes, as it's live and early in their career there are one or two minor issues with the vox but hey, in the context of the thing, who cares? This isn't so much something for the completist, more for the fan who'd like to do a bit of time travel back to happier times...

The synths sound wonderfully 80s, the recording is really good (it was recorded for Radio Clyde, says Mark in the show, before launching into a hilarious scat solo at the beginning of Sandstorm), and I never heard Sandstorm before, so I'm one happy fan. It's funny, one album I don't play that often, but get utterly drawn into when I do, is 'Live at Wembley'. That live Level 42 energy is infectious. You get that in spades here.

Sit back and enjoy. No, jump around and enjoy, wiggle in your driving seat, tap your feet unstoppably on the bus/train/whatever, nod at your office desk until the earbuds fall out. You'll be grinning like an idiot in no time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick and efficient customer service saves the day!, 5 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works nicely with iPad Mini, but had a problem with the lightning cable connector breaking off within a couple of months. This was disappointing (and would have resulted in a 2 star rating), but I'm giving 4 stars as a result of Syncwire's lifetime guarantee. In my experience, lifetime guarantees are sometimes hollow promises, but not Syncwire. I emailed Syncwire at 6pm on Saturday, and a replacement arrived in the post on Monday. The golden rule of customer service is to impress your customers when things go wrong. I'm impressed. I just hope the replacement lasts this time :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Phone protection with a credit card wallet - great idea!, 18 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fits the 5s very nicely, looks well made, and it's a subtle shade of navy blue. The card holder slot will need a little use to free up the sliding door, but then you don't want it popping open on its own, so that's fine. Whilst it appears to provide decent protection, there's not too much bulk added - I make it 14mm deep, which is still pocket-friendly. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good earbuds., 28 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter says they're good, sound nice but it's a bit of work to get the right buds to fit her little ears (she says). If they last even a little bit longer than all the previous earphones I've bought her, I'll be a happy man - the omens thus far are positive. I particularly like the flat cabling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent removable mudguards for commuter/cx-type use, 28 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Neat-fitting yet customisable (with a bit of judicious bending) mudguards to fit up to 32mm tyres. The extra flaps are easily removable, so for less wet times you can have a slightly more aero set up. I've had no clatter or rubbing. Recommended.

Just old school Simple Minds, taking me back to teenagerdom, in cardboard sleeves perfect for the car. Brilliant Things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool earphones from a manufacturer I'd never heard of., 2 May 2015

Flat wires means no tangles; loads of fit options for earbud; clean, pleasant and bassy sound at a tremendous price. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever little one-trick pony props up your iPod with ease., 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This gets around the kind of issue that has us Apple fans gnashing our teeth - unnecessarily expensive feature-creep on Apple's behalf. World+Dog has the 30-pin iPod connector, so Apple shifts goalposts with the Lightning connector, presumably expecting us to bin our iLife hardware and spend loads starting all over again. Well, in the real world we buy adaptors, connectors, bits of wire and anything, anything to keep our iPods, iPads and iEverythingelse working with our hifis, cars, docking stations etc.

What this little fellow does is prop up your iPod/iPhone when it's sitting on a 30-pin to Lightning connector in a dock. Without something to lean on, the iDevice could put too much pressure on the flimsy little connector. I don't imagine too much force would be needed to break it, and repeated insertion/removal just ups the probability of breakage.

It fits a standard round-cornered rectangle dock very neatly, and the metal bar has a rubber strip on it to avoid scratching your expensive little iDevice. The silvery colour does scream 'After-Market Item' at you, but, hey, it works.

Now if I could only find a flipping 30-pin-to-Lightning connector that charges AND plays audio, then I'd be a happier bunny...
