The first two tracks on this are a cacophony; after that it mellows out. Some great stuff and some not so good

Feels good in the hand and the translucent lip over the front makes the phone look even classier than it does without it.... why did I give this one to my girlfriend?

Feels good in the hand and the cover will protect from most accidents. It also helps distinguish it from my girlfriends identical phone!

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading description and faulty products, 20 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First things first, I've frequently used 'past their install by date' inkjet cartridges on previous occasions with no problem.

However, for the seller not to mention that they are of this nature is pretty naughty. Not only that, they arrive with the date removed from the packaging so there is clear intent to hide it from an unsuspecting consumer. Once opened the date is faintly stamped on the cartridge itself and the two I had were between 2 and 3 years 'out of date', not dissimilar to others I've used successfully before.

However, on this occasion the first one to arrive contained ONLY black ink, none of which should ever be in a colour cartridge. I went through the 'use a vacuum cleaner nozzle' routine to suck ink through and only succeeded in getting a lot of black ink everywhere. In fairness, having a lodged a complaint a replacement was sent immediately without any resistance. Unfortunately, this one would only emit green ink. I once again dragged out the Vax to do it's stuff, but to no avail; only green would come out. A further complaint was made and a refund was made to me without a quibble, so at least this aspect was satisfactory.

I was fortunate to have my complaint accepted though based on their T&Cs, as I put the cartridges into the printer on the day of arrival because I'd run out. Had I not done so, they could have rejected the claim as they state all complaints must be lodged within 24 hours of receipt. Frankly, this is ridiculous; you'd only do this if you were flat out of ink and needed to print there and then. Also, if you bought a couple 'for stock' you may not install for sometime.

I accept that the price was low, but the out of date aspect was never revealed until I had the product. I may still have bought had I known it, but this would then have been a calculated risk rather than on the basis of a false price comparison to other suppliers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Light fantastic (pun intended), 8 Feb. 2012

Works very well with bright light and secure fastening to book.

Only downside was that it was a bit fiddly to get the battery protector out on first use as you need a VERY tiny screwdriver.

4.0 out of 5 stars No hassle replacement, 14 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When this arrived it looked fine but within a week one corner fell off under no pressure or impact.

Two days later another fell of and the phone was no in danger of falling out of the case. One e-mail to Xylo and they offered a replacement, albeit in another colour. That failed to arrive and when I emailed again they said it must have got lost in the post so another was dispatched "Signed For". The next day a purple one arrived and so far it is looking fine.

This review is from: Happiness (Audio CD)
Having first seen Hurts at VFestival in 2010 I was taken by just how good they were live, but was not really moved to buy the album.

At the 2011 VFestival I'd not planned to take them in a second time, but one of the comedy acts finished early and as they were in the adjacent tent I popped in. I didn't see the full show, but what I saw enticed me into buying the album because they had improved so much, particularly vocally. On putting the CD into the player, I was not disappointed; soaring vocals, great melodies, top songs all well delivered. What else do you want?

Title of review says it all really; not as much depth as Delphic, not as joyous as Fenech Soler, but still great from start to finish
