5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 16 Oct. 2015
I’m pleased with the design and the sound of the SoundTouch; typically Bose, a bit bass-heavy but nicely punchy and musical.
Set-up was dead easy and I had it paired with my wi-fi, iPad and MacBook within 10 minutes.
The Soundtouch has no internal battery so, although it is easy to carry, it is not strictly portable, but it picks up within few seconds if unplugged and moved from room-to-room. Mercifully it plugs into the mains without an ugly power-brick. A nice feature is that the sounds fades in and out, rather than cutting, if the wi-fi signal is interrupted temporarily.
I got the white version, which looks sophisticated and blends in well. A word of warning though if you’re thinking of using one in a kitchen or bathroom; the pale grey fabric cover doesn’t seem to be removable, or very washable, so keep it away from grime (and kids)!

I bought the 12" 'envelope" - a neat and somewhat 'folksy' design. It fits well and will protect against scratches, though probably not drops!

2.0 out of 5 stars Like typing with rubber gloves on, 16 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wish I could like the way that it works as much as I like the way that it looks, but after a couple of months of trying..... I just don't. The tip is a squidgy rubber 'condom' over a metal spine. It's not at all sensitive and the 'feature' of being able to turn it on its edge to create a broader line is very hit-and-miss, as are the smudge and the use of multi-touch. The Bluetooth seems to suck-up battery life too. So, FiftyThree, it's back to the drawing board for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars I think I'm in love...., 16 Aug. 2015
Not only does it look bloomin' fantastic, the construction feels solid - not at all plastic-y, and it doesn't vibrate, rattle and leak like my old Gaggia did. The coffee produced is good and the single/double dosing system works well. (The quantities are user-adjustable).
I'd recommend ordering a suitable stainless steel frothing jug, if you don't already have one.
I chose this over similar looking Krups Nespresso machines because ( I admit to being the kind of guy who does spreadsheets for this kind of thing ) the cost will be about £1,400 cheaper over the life of the machine, on the basis of 4 cups a day. And it's better for the environment not to be chucking single use foil pots away too. Sorry George Cluny, but someone else will have to fund your next palazzo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tacky..... in a good way!, 21 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought on the basis of other reviews, I was sceptical about whether something so lightweight could really hold onto the dashboard. I needn't have worried; it sticks like a limpet, but is easily removed. Cheaper, lighter and more compact than a beanbag, it's ideal for anyone who, like me, packs a GPS when flying with only hand-luggage.

A high quality lens cap. Yes, the string is kind of janky, but don't let that put you off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made and looks good., 24 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A strong basket with a nice matte finish so it will live happily alongside your Farrow & Ball Elephant's Breath. It's pretty large, so I wouldn't recommend carrying it fully-loaded, but it looks good beside the fire. I had to fold the split pins which hold the metal nameplate on into the wicker with a pair of pliers, otherwise they could have caused some injury.
