3.0 out of 5 stars So nearly perfect..., 19 Mar 2010
It's such a shame... the radio itself is perfect: excellent reception, good tone, looks good; the controls too are excellent: once you've mastered the guiding principal of 'choose your function, scroll up or down the menu and then select the option you want' it quickly becomes second nature; the layout of the buttons is well thought out: being laid out in a curve, you can easily find the button you want in the dark, just by the feel of them; the functions are great: can't think of anything else a radio alarm clock could need. So why just the 3 stars? The backlit display really is as bright and annoying as everyone says... luckily, however, you can switch it off altogether (which does mean that you need to switch it on again in order to see the time when it's dark) so all us folk who wake up when there's light about can still sleep soundly. It's VERY annoying, though - PLEASE, all you nice people at Roberts, just make a version without the backlit display, or better still where the backlighting is optional, because it is handy as a dim nightlight if you want to avoid waking your husband by putting the bedside light to creep out of the bedroom without treasding on the cat.

5.0 out of 5 stars I just love it!, 17 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ditched my old bulky screen in favour of this one, and am thrilled with it. it takes up LOADS less space, is clear as a bell and I honestly can't fault it. It was a doddle to set up and it even looks good, sitting on the desk.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last!, 28 Jan 2010

At last I ditched all my scruffy wire coat hangers that made ironing day a nightmare when they got all tangled & made the wardrobes look a mess. Everything's neat & tidy now and I can hang my freshly ironed shirts without resorting to hanger-rage & rude words. Wish I'd done this years ago!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!, 12 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought my mother a pair of the original headphones, because of a hearing problem, and her finding them quite literally life-changing, we got some for my dad, who had tried them and been amazed at how they revolutionised his tv/radio listening experience. These are a fab piece of kit - I'm saving up for my own set!

5.0 out of 5 stars A real life-saver - quite stunning!, 11 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got these for my mother, who is quite severely deaf. Normally a hearing aid enables her to take part in conversations and listen to the tv & radio with reasonable success. Recently she had an ear infection and was unable to wear her hearing aid at all, so I bought these for her to reduce her sense of complete isolation. The effect was no less than staggering, and literally brought tears of joy! Even better than that, even thiough she is able to wear her hearing aid again, she has found that the headphones have revolutionised her radio & tv listening experience, and she uses them everyday. Until now the tv & radio have had to be turned up to uncomfortable levels for everoyne else in the house, and she's still had to strain to get about half of what was going on - only now is she realising what she's been missing all these years! What's more my dad is so impressed with them that, although his hearing's not at all bad, he's asked for a second set for Christmas.

On the technical side they work wonderfully (crystal clear sound, very comfortable to wear and easy to operate) - and the fun of being able to leave the room & wander about the house whilst still listening will take a long while to wear off. One small thing, though - ours didn't come with an adaptor for the tv, so when they were first plugged in, although the headphones worked beautifully, nothing came out of the tv for the rest of the family to hear. A quick trip to the local hi-fi shop sorted the problem out very cheaply & easily, though.

Can't sing their praises high enough - go buy some!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous piece of kit!, 23 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This mat is the absolute gold standard! It's so thick & comfortable, lovely & long and perfect for Pilates etc. The straps are good not only for carrying about, but to stop it coming unrolled while you're not using it. You do need to put it down facing the right way, so that it can't curl up during your exercises, but that's no problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for cat lovers!, 27 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cat Detective (Paperback)
An excellent book for cat-lovers , and especially for novices. It gives plenty of insight into cat behavoiur and the moggy-mindset, and is full of really useful advice on how to solve problems and how to forestall them before they even start. It's written in a really easy-to-read, clear and interesting style, so it's accessible even if you're not an avid bookworm.

Excellent scraping qualities - you almost don't have to wash the mixer bowl after using it! Makes a perfect pair with the matching small spatula.

It's good to be able to have bells in different parts of the house, but the chimes are pretty dreadful. They annoy the family and terrify the cats!

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrid light!, 27 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought these bulbs for a housebound friend in the hope that they would lift her mood in the dark months. Far from the lovely natural light that was promised, it was a harsh, nasty light that the whole family simply refused to put up with :(. The company who supplied them were very quick & good, however - it was just the product that left a lot to be desired!
