4.0 out of 5 stars Great, shame about the collections, 26 May 2015

An excellent improvement over the original Kindle 2 I had. Only down side I can see so far is that the collections are managed "in the cloud" meaning its a mammoth task to organise my non-amazon books since Calibre and other similar software no longer works to help organise your Kindle collection.

Looks good (better than most others in the price range), sturdy, easy to assemble and really bright at full power. Dimmers work great. No complaints at all. Bought a 2nd I liked the 1st so much

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite impressed for the cost, 13 Sept. 2014

Not bad quality for the price. Easy to construct, quite stable. The only bit I'd quibble over is the curvy bit which isn't very strong and needed the hole re-enforcing on one side as the tension caused it to pop through the pre-drilled hole. Also the hammock bit is useless, would have been better to leave it out, I'm thinking of cutting mine off.

Not suitable for large or heavy cats (especially the top basket). My adult cat is tiny and doesn't weigh much but any bigger or heavier and I don't think it would be that good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some good elements but lacking a little sophistication, 13 Sept. 2014

This review is from: Dark Eden (Kindle Edition)
An interesting if slightly predictable story (by the end any way). Told from the view points of several characters in the first person, this story explores the colony established by the survivors of a space travel accident. An exploration not just of the weird, sunless, world it delves into delicate balances of civilisation, community and family structures.

There's a sequel coming which could provide the more satisfying ending to this story that this book lacked in a way, which ends with a couple of large threads incomplete. Nevertheless a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb historical fiction, 21 April 2014

As many people I read this on recommendation from GRRM, there are some parallels with ASOFAI and if you enjoyed those you'll enjoy these. It is a little slow to get going and ends on a cliffhanger but I was hooked halfway through and couldn't put it down. Intrigue, schemes, plots, lust and love; its got it all. You don't need an indepth knowledge of european history of the time but you'll probably find yourself reaching for wikipedia to learn more about certain historical figures and groups. On to book 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Audio, 25 Aug. 2013

These are excellently balanced headphones, deep bass, crisp mids, and sharp highs. The plugs they come with look really large but are great at sound isolation, and of course there's the distinct shape of the rear of the earphone - a bit pointy - but they don't look ridiculous.

These are way better than the Sennheisers they replaced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very realistic, 25 Aug. 2013

OK so the moment you pick it up and look you can tell its fake, but the number of people that walk past my desk then double back to look again is hilarious. I was skeptical at first when I ordered this, but its well made and still on the original batteries a month or so from when I got it. Great alternative to the usual office/shelf gadgets

This is a good quality record bag. Its made of water-resistant fabric and the pattern looks really good - slightly more purple-ish grey than the photos suggest but not so you'd look at it and say "that's purple".

It holds more records than it looks like it can withstand, and the strap could be fractionally longer for more comfortable wearing when not carrying records in it. I comfortably holds both the newer 15" and older 17" MacBookPro laptops.

It has a zip on the outside of the main flap which is really useful.

There are heavier duty record bags out there but for the price this is a really good value for money stylish bag
