5.0 out of 5 stars Massive 128GB Capacity, 22 Oct 2014
It's good to see the capacity of the MicroSD card double to a whopping 128GB. I'm using mine exclusively for storing MP3s and I've managed to store over 800 CD albums ripped at 320kbps.

I formatted it to FAT32 and can confirm that it works to its FULL capacity on the following versions of Android that my devices have between them, despite the instructions for all devices claiming that they only accept MicroSD cards up to 32GB:

Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread)
Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean)
Android 4.4.2 (KitKat)

I can't vouch for earlier versions of Android but the evidence suggests that this should work with Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread) onwards. It also works to its full capacity with the latest SanDisk Clip Sport MP3 player and the newly released hudl 2. An SD adapter is included.

***To avoid the possibility of receiving a fake card, just order DIRECT from Amazon!***

5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive, easy and effective upgrade, 22 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this after one of my USB ports died on my laptop and the ExpressCard 54 port (which I've never used) was free. It fits flush and after installing the drivers from the supplied CD, it works perfectly. A very cheap and effective upgrade. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drop dead gorgeous, 22 Oct 2014
This review is from: Herb Alpert Presents (Audio CD)
Chic, elegant, sophisticated and drop dead gorgeous, this is one of the coolest albums imaginable. The two female vocalists elevate this music to another level and along with the quality of the song writing, the choice of covers (Mendes, as highlighted here on 'Day Tripper', covered The Beatles better than anyone else), musicianship, arrangements and production, it set the Bossa Nova benchmark upon its release. Alongside 'Look Around', this is the best album by Sergio Mendes & Brazil '66.


Skullcandy Air Raid Rugged Water and Drop Resistant Portable Rechargeable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker - Black
Skullcandy Air Raid Rugged Water and Drop Resistant Portable Rechargeable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker - Black
Price: £129.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Lacking finesse and subtlety but perfect for the great outdoors, 21 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As big as a brick and as heavy as one, this is, build wise, a serious bit of kit. Splash proof, made of heavy duty plastic and with a removable thick rubber shell, this Bluetooth speaker is built for the great outdoors and to withstand knocks and drops.

Sound wise, it's good but nothing special. There is a depth to the sound but to my ears it's lacking the finesse and subtlety expected from a speaker in this price range. Volume wise, it goes spectacularly loud but even at low volumes I can't listen to it for more than a couple of hours before having to switch it off as listening becomes uncomfortable on the ear. It's a bit like listening to an over compressed CD.

It paired immediately with my iPad and Android phone and the Bluetooth range is good. The battery is seriously impressive with an average 12 hours of playback. It has volume buttons that you can also use to skip between tracks (except when streaming music i.e. when using the Amazon Music app. Other Bluetooth speakers I've used costing much less allow you to do this).

Despite its weight, this is a speaker made for taking camping or down to the beach, situations where finesse and subtlety are secondary considerations and loudness, along with battery life, is everything.


Greenpan Venice 24 cm Ceramic Non-Stick Open Frypan, Grey Aluminium
Greenpan Venice 24 cm Ceramic Non-Stick Open Frypan, Grey Aluminium

5.0 out of 5 stars Built to last, perfect frying results and easy to clean too, 16 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This a weighty and well made pan that is built to last for years. It is quite small and the heat is distributed evenly and it's ideal for frying eggs, bacon, meatballs, etc. It cleans so easily - before giving it the once over in the washing-up bowl, just wipe it with some kitchen roll and it's like new with none of the black residue you sometimes get from aluminium pans. To show an indication of its size and how easy it is to clean, I've uploaded some photos (see Product Images from Customers).

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality face cleanser, 16 Oct 2014
I can't find fault with this cleanser and can see a definite improvement in my overall complexion in the couple of months I've been using it. It is expensive but a 125ml tube lasts for 3-4 months - it foams up really easily and you only need to use a tiny amount each time to cleanse your face and neck. Clarins are giving their men's range of skincare products a big push in Debenhams at the moment, but I'll be sticking with this. Definitely recommended and worth the outlay.


Karin Herzog Essential Mask Hydrating Face Mask 50 ml
Karin Herzog Essential Mask Hydrating Face Mask 50 ml

4.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional DIY skin care but exceptional price too, 9 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
After using this four times in the past forthight and expending the full 50ml in the process, I can confidently state that this is a high end face mask that works so much better than the Simple one I occasionally use. And it should do given the £45+ price difference.

I applied it each time a couple of hours after having a wet shave (to give my skin time to recover from the shave) and left it on for the recommended 10 minutes and then rinsed it off. Wow! My skin felt so much better and smoother and I was amazed at how clear my complexion looked. Not as good as if I'd visited a salon but not a million miles away. It's easy to apply using your fingertips (I binned the applicator supplied), doesn't irritate the skin and you can almost feel it going to work immediately - it doesn't just sit on your skin and dry out,

The only problem is the price. For the same £50+ asking price at the time of writing I could visit a salon once a fortnight (50ml is a two week supply if used twice weekly as suggested in the directions) and get the full works - exfoliating, deep cleanse, face mask and a neck & shoulder massage and I think that in the longer term a salon visit will possibly be the better option for anyone who spends this sort of money on their skin care. If it was half the price I'd definitely use it on a regular basis.


Philips BT9280/33 Series 9000 Laser Guided Beard Trimmer
Philips BT9280/33 Series 9000 Laser Guided Beard Trimmer
Price: £54.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent trimmer but useless bling, 3 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the EXACT same trimmer as the Philips Style Xpert BT5260/33 Precision Beard Trimmer but with added bling.

Without any attachments it's a perfect beard trimmer. I have an aggressive stubble and this can glide through 3 weeks worth of growth effortlessly leaving me with an even finish and about 2-3 days worth of stubble. I have no need for the attachments but according to some of the reviews for the BT5260/33 trimmer it falls short of the standard of cut expected for a trimmer in this price range when using them.

It's ergonomically sound, built to last and it's easy to switch between the 17 length settings (0.4mm-7mm) using the rotating adjuster on the handle. The head is rotatable and when rotated there's a smaller head for refined trimming purposes. It takes about 90 minutes to charge from empty and the battery life is extremely impressive and lasts long enough for 6-7 complete trims. It's waterproof and the head can be removed for cleaning purposes.

The added bling on this model are the digital display on the rotating adjuster and the laser. The digital display is no improvement on the analogue display on the BT5260/33 trimmer because it does the exact same job, no better or worse. I was looking forward to the laser guided technology on this - Philips claim that it'll make it easy to achieve a symmetrical trim and I though it'd be handy for trimming my stubble but leaving some cool retro sideburns or a perfect goatee. Unfortunately, all it does is beam a straight red laser line onto your face directly where the trimmer will make contact with your face and that's it. It's just as easy to see where the trimmer is going to cut without it. And as it only shines above where the trimmer is going to cut and not simultaneously on both sides of your face, it's impossible to use it to match up both sides to get the symmetrical trim that Philips claim it will help you achieve. The laser only works when using the the trimmer without any attachments and you can opt to leave it switched off.

In summary, if you want to cut your stubble back to 2-3 days worth of growth and value a long battery life then this is a fine trimmer. However, save yourself £40 and get the BT5260/33 trimmer because the laser on this trimmer is just bling for the sake of bling and adds NOTHING whatsoever to the experience.


Rare Psych Moogs And Brass - Music From The Sonotron Library 1969 to 1981
Rare Psych Moogs And Brass - Music From The Sonotron Library 1969 to 1981
Price: £12.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Funk. Jazz and Psychedelic grooves from the Sonoton vaults, 2 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This collection of library tracks sees Buried Treasure deliberately eschewing the more conservative sounds associated with Sonoton and instead gathering together some killer sounds recorded for the label between 1969 and 1981. Despite the brief playing time of 42:11, this is one of the best library compilations I've heard in a long time. As the title suggest, there's plenty of moog and brass but the heavy bass, synths and phased fuzz guitars stand out too. There are some really cool synthesized funk, moody jazz vibes and big band sounds to be heard and a lot of these songs wouldn't have sounded out of place on Italian soundtracks from the same period. The quality does not falter for a single moment. Funky, groovy, jazzy, psychedelic and quite often playful, this is a must for 1970's library music and Italian soundtrack aficionados.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone, 1 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sound + Vision (Audio CD)
This is a very welcome reissue of this superb chronological overview of Bowie's career between 1969 and 1993. Hits, outtakes, live tracks, alternate versions, album tracks and Tin Machine too - there's something for everyone. It's also excellent value: 70 tracks across 4 CDs with a playback time of 4 hours and 58 minutes (and AutoRip if purchased direct from Amazon). The CDs are housed inside an old style double CD jewel case with a cardboard slipcase cover. There's an accompanying 56 page booklet with very lengthy sleeve notes and archive photos, including the recording dates, release dates and featured musicians for each song. It might not be as up to date as the forthcoming 'Nothing Has Changed' compilation but it represents amazing value for money and it should appeal to existing Bowie fans given that it's NOT just a straightforward 'Best of' box set.
