3.0 out of 5 stars Alright..., 5 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: iOS8 Lockscreen Parallax HD (App)
Nice functionality and allows me to toggle lock screen easier than the six steps needed using android's system. But it's constantly annoying you to rate it, check out their other apps, etc. It's very annoying...

What can I say except it does what it claims. Feels good quality and I've used it now for moths with no sign of wear or parts becoming lose. It comes with two different types of graters which is an added bonus!

2.0 out of 5 stars Torn to shreds with the first windy night, 16 Jun. 2014

Considering it says outdoor cover, you would expect it to handle the wind better. It lasted for about a week until the first windy night. I found it completely torn around the seat and the handles. Very disappointing....

1.0 out of 5 stars Bought from a different seller but it's the same one, 14 Jun. 2014
This is a terribly cheap and nasty little gadget. It worked wonders for about a month so I made the mistake of recommending it to a few friends. One reported back saying it lasted a day or two before it broke down. The other friend said it "kind of" worked for a few weeks, but it barely had any smell or visible mist.

Mine however lasted a bit longer that theirs. About two months as advertised, then it started to lose power and there was very little mist coming out. Eventually after 4 months it just stopped and won't even light up. I've tried other power supplies so it's not that either.

So in short: very cheaply made, clearly unreliable and if you’re lucky (like me) , you might get a few months of life out of it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says, 14 Nov. 2012

I was a bit hesitant to pay for an app to read pdfs, but I needed something to listen to embedded audio files. It did the job very well even in my crappy/nasty cheap tablet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plug and Play in Ubuntu, 13 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works perfect in both Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04. The former requires installation of drivers and Logitech software, the later is just plug and play! All gestures supported automatically, no fiddling about. Brilliant! Goodbye carpal tunnel...

I don't usually enjoy a vampire story... But the characters were so rich and complex, that it blew my mind! I couldn't put it down....

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a very clever machine, 19 May 2012
If you're looking for a really good sound with very little space usage then this is the best I've heard (excepting of course a Bose). But my Nokia mobile from the 90s had more settings than this.

The pros:

1.- It's very slim and you can hang it on a wall
2.- The sound is excellent for an artifact of this size. Make sure to put it against the wall for best resonance (bass speakers actually point to the back)
3.- The design is very understated so fits in almost any decoration
4.- Multiple forms of playback (CD, MP3 via pen drive, Apple gadgets, etc.)
5.- Remote control with good range and angle response

The cons:

1.- The alarm clock is very limited in settings e.g. you can select you want to wake up with a CD, but you can't specify which track.
2.- The alarm volume kicks in gradually and there's no way to change that, and it only goes up to a maximum of 16 (approx) even though the max output of the system is 32. So if you're hard to wake up like me it'll take about 15 mins to get to the maximum and it might not be enough volume to wake you up.
3.- It has an "Eco Power" function that cannot be deactivated. This basically means that if you're not playing anything it will shut down after a few minutes. So forget about using it as a clock
4.- It's very slow to start
5.- Even though the remote has a number pad, it can only be used to select a CD/MP3 track, not for setting the time or the alarm (which you have to do with the arrows Rew/Forw)
6.- Manual's very basic

Whoever designed the OS part of this machine did not care much for their work, but the sound designers did a great job!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for work, but not for relaxing., 19 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivery was super fast (unusually so). The chair was very easy to assemble (only two parts plus the wheels) and could be done by one person. The chair feels very sturdy and it's reinforced by metal plates on the bottom (should last many years). The chair is really comfortable for work i.e. sitting at a desk, working on a computer, etc. But is not that comfortable for just relaxing, reading or watching a film. You have to work to keep it tilted back (even at the softest setting) and it doesn't have much of an angle (I would say somewhere between 55° and 60°). So it's just right for office work but wouldn't recommend it for anything else. I gave it 5 stars since it's advertise as an executive chair.
