I love Pannett's humour and easy style of writing. Have re read a couple of his books as its just a nice read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Would be great if AirPlay worked properly all the time., 23 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought 2 of these after upgrading my phone to the iphone5 and also switched my router to Apple AirPort Extreme. I really thought this would be a great upgrade to my old speaker docks.

When they work they sound good even at higher volumes, set up is fairly straight forward following the quick start guide. They look good as well.

Negatives are the constant dropping of the wifi connection which then renders them pointless. Sometimes just unplugging them for a few seconds sorts the problem as they will reconnect to wifi network automatically. Occasionally they don't so I have in the last 3 months had to go through the setup process a couple of times a month. What is odd is that I have 2 of them and both have same issue, yet I have Apple TV, ipad,iPhone, consoles etc so I'm confident it's not a wifi issue as nothing else seems to have a problem.

I don't know if this is a Phillips problem or just AirPlay being poor with non Apple hardware. I'm going to persevere as I have to. I should have returned them to amazon within the 30 days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain, 8 July 2012

Was looking for a bathroom speaker solution that avoided having my iPhone sitting in a steam filled room for hours on end and this is it.

Very impressed with the sound quality and build for the price. Bluetooth connection is solid and pairing up as always was simple so can leave my phone in another room and Bluetooth the audio through to the bathroom.

Couple this with iphone tunein app and it's a perfect digital radio/mp3 player solution which won't cost the earth to replace when it eventually corrodes to junk.


ZAGG Invisible Shield Maximum Protection Screen Scratch Guard for Apple iPhone 4
ZAGG Invisible Shield Maximum Protection Screen Scratch Guard for Apple iPhone 4

5.0 out of 5 stars take your time and rtfm, 13 July 2010
I have always seen these on friends phones and decided that with my new Iphone4 I would give it a bash. I'm delighted with it. I hate chunky cases and no matter how much I try and look after my gadgets I usually will end up putting my new shiny toy in my pocket with keys and coins.

The zagg shield has solved that problem and it really is good with scratch protection. Just have to try and avoid dropping it now.

Great fun. Especially like the flame thrower and manual use of mortar shells. Wanted to get from Amazon but out of stock so went to Carphone Warehouse and they have it for 34.99!

5.0 out of 5 stars decent kit, 9 Oct. 2007
Upgraded from the previous version nano. Good quality and great price considering what Creative, Sony et al are trying to flog for more. And does anyone seriously think a gadget with a rechargeable battery is going to last more than a year or two before replacing it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Canon Ixus 70, 4 Oct. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this along with the camera from Amazon. Chuffed with the camera but very pleased with the case. Nice quality feel and look to it and much better for having a magnet rather than velcro. Every time I used my last case it felt like everyone within a mile would turn and look at me every time I opened the case!

Good value and a perfect fit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where did she go?, 24 Sept. 2006

This review is from: Get On (Audio CD)
A good strong debut album with more than than the usual 2 or 3 good tracks in an album of dross. Catchy and makes you want to listen again which cant be said for most current pop albums where the whole album sounds like the same song remixed. Try it.

2.0 out of 5 stars sorry i fell asleep, 24 Sept. 2006
mmmm, high hopes after loving the first movie were dashed on davie jones' locker. Far far too long although the special effects are great and the action pieces are good quality. Is every action movie from now on going to be like King Kong where you go "WOW" after the first 15 seconds and then "im bored" when the scene has carried on for 35 minutes?. Rent it and then buy it if you still have the will to live.

Depp and Nighy are excellent as usual but the rest are mediocre.
