5.0 out of 5 stars Great balance, 3 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what it's supposed to do, and does it well. Unparalleled balance of value, compactness and performance in my experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal everyday pen, 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love these pens. Liquid ink, but doesn't smudge as easily as many liquid inks. Really smooth flow and movement. Basically, if you like liquid ink, these are the ideal everyday pen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some slight flaws, but generally very good., 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some of the corners are a bit sharp - not like "cuts you easily", but "you may get scratches". Putting the lids all the way off and back on is difficult, so if you have problems with your hands (poor coordination or grip, for example), get someone else to help. They're a little stiff in everyday use as well, so won't be suitable for people with really significant hand problems to use without help.

That aside, they are very good pill organisers. There are 4 time-labelled compartments, which is pretty usual, but also an "as required compartment", and there is a slider stopper between "night" and "as required", so if you slide it in the direction to get directly to "as required", it stops before opening any other compartment, and if you're going in the other direction you will open all 4 timed compartments and then hit the stop before opening "as required". A different colour for each day (and you can choose which day is which colour by switching lids) is really helpful as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Generally very good, 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Assembly a little awkward, but very solid and well-proportioned. Design better thought-out than a lot of these sorts of flat-packs.

Construction definitely requires two people, or at least one person and a very conveniently positioned object of exactly the right height, but only for a small part of construction.

Castors work well enough on our carpet, which is not deep-pile or anything. It doesn't roll around easily, which is a good thing (you don't want a stumble sending it across the room), but moves readily when you intend it to. However, there are no pilot holes for screwing them in.

DON'T OVER-TIGHTEN THE SUPPORTS. If you do, they will not tighten properly again afterwards.

Does what it's supposed to do, but not amazing. Battery compartment is rather more palpable from the underside than you might hope. Still very useful, tough.

Takes 3 AA batteries, not 3 AAA as described (or at least as described when we bought it).

4.0 out of 5 stars I would have loved for the Torre and Falk stories to be more ..., 7 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would have loved for the Torre and Falk stories to be more developed, but I guess that would be a much bigger task and not be short stories.

The gem of the book for adding to the worldbuilding is really the final story. It's incredibly hard to explain why without giving spoilers, so I'll just say - the anthology is worth it for that story alone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible colour, 28 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This truly gives a fantastic colour. I suppose that people might find it strange if they're used to the colour temperature of typical incandescent and CFL bulbs, but I urge everyone to give it a chance.

My fiancé says it feels like being in a sunbeam.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannot fault it, 6 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The ergonomic shape might not be as good as the split-keyboard designs you see, but that also means it's easier to adapt to and better for not-quite-perfect touch-typers. The use of Unifying is great, just the one dongle for this and for my mouse. And the extra function keys are low-profile, hard to hit by accident, and the software controlling what they do is easy to use. The wrist-wrest is also very comfy, and the action of the keys is quiet, with just the right resistance for me.
