5.0 out of 5 stars top-class 'phones at a budget price, 12 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these for the husband, who is a musician who uses earphones for monitoring - a notoriously iffy method! - and is therefore VERY fussy about sound quality, among other factors. Most of the headphones and in-ear 'phones he has ever tried, he has rejected for one reason or another: uncomfortable when worn for long periods (on-ear ones and 'cans' are dismissed out of hand for this reason); too much bass; too little 'top'; middle wrong; sound just not quite 'true'; don't fit in the ear properly; sound too dependent on positioning within ear canal; induce deafness with prolonged use... the list is endless. But this ridiculously inexpensive little gem won his approval. Phew! I shall be buying more of these, for when the ones he has fail, as everything inevitably does in the fullness of time. Full marks!

5.0 out of 5 stars intelligent paranormal drama, 12 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I missed the series when they were on TV, so I had little idea what to expect. However, one wouldn't expect that Lesley Sharp would star in anything fatuous or ill-conceived, and this certainly didn't disappoint. Excellent characters, very well portrayed, believable plot, thoughtful and compelling. At less than 8.50 for the whole 2-series thing, it's a no-brainer. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars the power of purple!, 12 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great item, works very well, is compact, looks good, matches my kettle of the same range/brand - which is to say, it's purple! And at a discount of 43%, the price is excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending this item.

5.0 out of 5 stars the power of purple, 7 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A well-designed, good-looking item at a brilliant price. It feels good in the hand, pours accurately without splashing, and has a well-fitting, flip-up lid. It boils water, it has a 2-year guarantee, and it's purple! What's not to like? I got the matching toaster at the same time, and even the husband, who usually shows little interest in household itmes, beyond whether they work properly, remarked upon how good they look. Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars super socks, 7 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Obviously, an important 'test' of socks is in how hard-wearing they are, and I don't yet know the answer to that. What I can say is that these are a change from boring black or other plain-colour ones, while still smart and not too whimsical for semi-formal or smart-casual everyday wear. I'm told they are comfortable, and highly acceptable in every way. They represent excellent value for money imo, and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

5.0 out of 5 stars budget wonder, 3 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's often said that if something seems 'too good to be true' for the money, it probably is - but in this case, not so. I concur with other reviewers, that while it may not be the most robust of tripods, its great benefit, apart from the ridiculously low price, is its portability. It does what it says on the packet and at 8 quid with free shipping, it's a no-brainer. Recommended, without hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mister Leonard Cohen, 2 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oddly enough, as a long-time fan of L.Cohen, I had hitherto failed to obtain quite a bit of his back catalogue, including some albums I had never heard in their entirety. Even for those who had not been so remiss, this box is essential imo - all the great man's studio work in one neat, highly portable package, and for Amazon's pre-order price of just over 25 for 11 albums, even though I did own some of them already, it was a no-brainer. Of course, one knows for the most part, what one is getting with the musical work of the man who is, arguably, Canada's greatest living poet - but the big surprise for me was the generally deplored curiosity, "Death of a Ladies' Man". This wildly unlikey clash of heads between Cohen and 'Mad Phil' Spector, I actually love. Until you've heard the usually reserved, restrained and ultra-polite Mr.Cohen belting out a Spector-crafted upbeat 'pop' tune; warbling one of the 'wall of sound' man's turgid, nostalgia-steeped melodies; or yelling his head off in aggressive competition with a typically cacophonous Spector auditory mishmash, you've never lived. Occasionally actually hilarious, it's great stuff.

My advice: whatever you have to do - including paying the full RRP - give your ears and your soul a treat and get this set. You'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars ear dragon, 13 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this item! I've kept it in continuously since receiving it a few weeks ago, and it has caused no discomfort or irritation at all. It doesn't come unscrewed/loose and it looks great; much more stylish and original imo than any ordinary earring. Value for money - highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars soap dish, 13 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent product. The design - soap bar is supported on edge rather than flat - means it doesn't stick out so far. This not only means it's less likely to get knocked as you move about in the shower cab, but also that there's less weight-force exerted on the suction cups. I've had it several weeks now and it hasn't fallen off the tiles once. Also the soap doesn't get soggy. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the pic, 26 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The item I received is actually much better than than the photo, being 'tailored'/shaped, rather than tent-like, with encased seams, all very well-finished, and elasticated round the bottom so that even a high wind would not pull it off the chiminea. I was a bit dubious, as the size is not specified - 'large' could mean anything - but it actually fits my chiminea BLACK CAST IRON CHIMINEA WITH PULL OUT GRILL very well. The stout, durable, water-repellant cloth is a tasteful, unobtrusive fawn colour. EXCELLENT value for the low price. Recommended!
