Haven't read the books but very much enjoyed the pilot. Hopefully it makes the grade

5.0 out of 5 stars 1 for the money, as the song goes., 29 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
And when it comes to the newest baby in the Sonos family, it sure does give plenty bang for your buck.

I have the Playbar and a Play 3 and was trying to justify the cost of another Play 3 when i heard about the launch of the Play 1. Added them as soon as I got home this evening and what a joy to behold both for music and DVD/BluRay audio, higher pitched noises that had previously been drowned out.

When combined with the playbar the sound can be quite loud, at only 15-20% if you have a relatively small main room, as I do. Just bear in mind if you have sensitive neighbours. However it is a boon for those who don't need the power of the Play 3. Although don't be fooled by the name, the Play 1 contains 2 speakers not 1, as some people assume.

They are hefty little beasts but reassuringly solid. One puzzling thing. They are billed as 'humid proof' for kitchen and bathroom use, bathroom with a 240v cord?? i don't think so.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Replacement Remote, 9 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A friend passed away and I was left with a TV for the bedroom but no remote, so I ordered the One For All URC3940.

I checked beforehand to ensure the TV I wanted to use was compatible, which it was. Setting things up were simple enough and a few minutes after opening I was changing channels and altering the volume with wild abandon. If this is what you need you're looking at the right device!

The one downside I found was when trying to set-up the TV, from the on-screen menu it asks you to press return...there's no return button on the URC3940! After pressing just about every other button I found there was no 'return' substitute and a call to One For All confirmed, no return button...so if you *need* one, perhaps this isn't the remote for you?

4.0 out of 5 stars A Comfortable Nights Sleep Awaits, 14 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I upgraded to the Vango self-inflating mat from the run of the mill yoga like mat that most people buy for their first camping expedition. Chances are you're looking at it because you're tired from waking up during the night with aches and pains.

The mat does what it says on the tin, it self-inflates efficiently and isn't too arduous to roll back up and get back in it's bag. My annual trip to WOMAD was so much better this year as a result of getting some decent sleep with not a hint of sore bones from lying on the ground, albeit on a 5mm layer of compressed foam.

The one thing you should be aware of is it's not a lightweight model, I knew that in advance but I only had to get it from the house to the car to the tent pitch. If you are going to be doing a lot of hiking you'll probably want a lighter weight version, which you'll pay a little more for.

However that said, assuming you don't mind carrying a little extra you'll find it's worthwhile due to the quality of sleep you'll get.

For reference I'm 78Kg, if you're a bit heavier your experience may not be the same as mine but I think you'd have to be quite a bit heavier before it gets detrimental.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fort Knox of Humidors, 14 May 2013
I have one of these and it's fantastic. When closed the seal is airtight which is essential for maintaining the ideal humidity whilst away from home.

It comfortably holds 10 sticks and is quite light so easy to take on camping or fishing trips or even just a day in the park or a BBQ with friends.

3.0 out of 5 stars Small change Holder, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a perfectly adequate coin purse but it is rather small. Much smaller than the last one I purchased which is no big deal unless you find yourself with a lot of loose change. Build quality is what you'd expect for the money, unlikely to last a year but you don't buy it expecting a lifetime guarantee.

I'm not sure why but these pens make my usually scrawly handwriting look legible, not much but enough that others can decipher what I'm saying in my old school letters and cards.

If you have any recollection of watching Robotech as a kid/teen/adult you'll want to own this collection. The assortment of bonus features makes it worth the price alone, the complete series of Robotech itself is just a bonus!

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job!, 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Modern Thermal Long John (Apparel)
Firstly I'd advise ordering a size up unless you intend doing Aled Jones on the karaoke!

These long johns are provide sufficient warmth during the cold weather but aren't too uncomfortable once you're indoors. There's no noticeable shrinkage after washing and drying even tho I put them in the tumble dryer (Care instruction labels? I laugh in your face!)

Overall good value for money

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't Work, 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ICIDU 2m SCART Cable (Accessory)
Bought this item for a DVD and TV in the spare room. When connected the TV kept flashing "No Signal". Tried the cable with the TV in the main room with the same effect. Popped to my local B&Q, picked up one for a fiver and works perfectly.

So, whilst the item may appear to be cheap, there's probably a reason why. I've returned item for a refund rather than exchange, once bitten and all that jazz!
