2.0 out of 5 stars I am very disappointed BUT the difference is that there is no other ..., 18 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This player is ALL about the looks and not the sound or quality.

Speakers are totally awful and the records spin as wavy as anything which cause many records to skip.

For £90!!.... I am very disappointed ALTHOUGH there is no other product out there that I would consider to have on display...

I've hooked it up to my main audio system and this is really the only way of enjoying this.

_____ UPDATE:

Decided to return to Amazon as the skipping of the records was unbearable .
gave up on the novelty briefcase and got a proper player instead - Audio-Technica AT-LP60 - the fact is this plays the records perfectly now proves the briefcase player was at fault

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a absolutely fantastic, action packed, 6 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have not played a Tomb Raider Game for years - as with many similar games they are very unimaginative and linear.

After sitting on the fence for a while I took the plunge and have been blown away.

This is a absolutely fantastic, action packed, gorgeous cinematic masterpiece.

The pace and action is relentless and the quality is never lost throughout the game. I just wish I had more time to explore every inch of this world from every angle just to appreciate how gorgeous everything is.

Most games I have played recently get a bit repetitive and drag after a while whilst the publishers milk every bit and push more DLC in your face but no two seconds are the same and the world and action just keeps getting bigger and better engrossing you more and more into the game.

Probably the best game I have ever had the pleasure of playing from this genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Double your range fix - great product too!, 12 May 2013
This is a must do for every owner which I have found to almost double my range of the adaptor.

There is a stupid piece of metal inside the case which Logitech have randomly fitted to increase the weight.

Simply peel off the 4 sticky pads on the bottom and unscrew the box. You'll then see the piece of metal. pop it out and screw back together and there you go - extra range!

- Product is excellent otherwise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple Review - to the point, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Summary first:

If you want the best noise cancelling quality (and perhaps comfort)then these are for you - period. If something else is more important to you then look elsewhere (price, looks, unbias sound profile).

If you search for 'best noise cancelling headphones' and then select the website of 'TopTen Reviews' - this should help you make your decision.

You can clearly see where the QC15s are rated on the scale and I think this is fair overall. There are loads of alternatives which, in each of their own way, will be 75%+ as good as the QC15 but for a fraction of the price so they deserve high merit. Unfortunately the QC15 best party piece is going to cost you.

The only thing I disagree with are the BEATs headphones - just please stay clear of these.

Further opinion:

You are buying the quality, name and research which has gone into these headphones.

It's the same as anyone who has tried to justify buying an Apple product, arguably overpriced - but boy do they deliver on what they are supposed to do.

- They are expensive but ARE the best noise cancelling headphones you can buy. - and this is the no1 reason to buy them. If something else is your top priority then choose the best one for that particular feature.

- Not a pure sound profile - quite bass biased but I think this reduces the need for an amp, and creates quite a satisfying listening experience. You would not buy active noise cancelling headphones if you wanted the most true sound? The quality will always be lost. I think the powerful bass might even be Bose's little cheat to help with the overall noise cancellation too....

- The build 'feel' is somewhat on the 'cheap' side but this does not take away from the clear thought that has been put into these. It is still very strong, lightweight, flexible, soft ear cups, comfortable to wear for hours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Epic!, 3 Jan 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I admit this game is not for those wanting a very strategic WW2 RTS game, or something that has never been done before. Even though the theme it is similar to many other titles which are all similar to each other (building bases, gathering resources and then killing everyone) it has mastered this genre in a unique way. I think it is largely due to the interactive scenery and entire look of it all. I believe that those are a couple of the key most things which have made this game epic to me. It is not really one for an enthusiast, but for someone who wants to just play a good game (and has a good computer) this is the one for you! For £18 it is definitely a bargin to absorb you for a few hours a day. - Definitely try to at least meet the recommended system requirements. I am running a P4 3.2Ghz, 1GB Ram Ati Radeon X1650 256Mb and it runs smoothly for me.
