4.0 out of 5 stars Seems to work just fine, pity about the design, 19 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nice and neat, and seems to do the job just fine ...... but where do I put the protective cover when the device is in use? It doesn't (as I expected) fit on the other end of the device, so I have three choices: sticking it on the device with bluetack, attaching it with a rubber band (my preferred option or leaving it somewhere on or near the PC and losing it. Why didn't they just get it to fit on the 'blunt' end?

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted, 4 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm no PC guru, so can't comment on the technical side except to say that, after a 5-year old XP system this one seems amazingly fast and impressively quiet.

Delivery was fast too, and packaging good.

Thinking ahead, the only - very mild - disappointment is that Zoostorm don't offer any custom options - the next PC we buy will be used for video editing and we'd like to get an additional hard drive, but it looks as if we'll have to order a standard single hard drive machine and the have the additional hard drive installed by our local PC man.

Not only the chords, but also the ability to play the chords with a few style options too. This product just gets better and better. And the support desk is outstanding too!

.... but it's not quite as royal blue as the picture would imply - more like a faded version of it really.

This review is from: Fakebook - the Real Book (App)
.... and no need to lug around all those dog-eared volumes! Pity they can't squeeze in a few dots too, but those are probably copyright!

4.0 out of 5 stars Best biro ever!, 17 Feb 2012
First found the 'No Nonsense' biro at Smiths many years ago. Sadly they no longer stock it, and Sheaffer seem not to promote it much in the UK - which is a bit of a mystery, because it's a superb writing implement - a really chunky up-market look, a screw-top cap (some more recent models have a push-on cap) so no fluff gets into the biro. Judging by looks, anyone would think it's worth at least ten times what it actually costs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, effective, excellent value, 2 Jan 2011
None of the 'standard' positions for SatNavs suited, and my wife and I bought this as a way of putting the thing where we wanted it - centre-car to the left of the instrument cluster.

We tried it; the position is ideal (both driver and passenger/navigator can see it); and it works. Logically, the clip fits in (and comes out) so easily that one would imagine that it should fall out at the slightest bump. But it doesn't.

At the price, we thought that, "well, if it doesn't work we've not spent a bomb and can try something else". Well, we're not looking anywhere for a better solution; we're very satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best over-the counter Athletes Foot treatment, 2 Jan 2011
I've used this ointment for some time, and found it to work as well as anything. On the advice of my chiropodist I switched to Clearzal-Bac, but found that really made my feet burn - the sensation of hot shower water on them was the same as if I'd got them sunburnt.

There seems to be nothing which clears Athletes Foot once and for all but, after three to five days treatment with Canestan, my feet are itch-free for a decent length of time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Might be good for some, but not for me, 30 Nov 2010
My chiropodist recommended this as the best treatment for my athletes foot. I tried it for about two weeks, but found it increasingly painful. The effects were a bit like sunburn - hot, or even warm, shower water on my feet was a definite "Ouch!". I'm sure some people may find it fine, but, as the title of this review says, "not for me".

5.0 out of 5 stars A revalation!, 28 Jun 2008
Following a previous buyer's review, I bought these speakers, plugged them into our TV and was really impressed - amazed even - at the improvement in the quality of the sound. Music is excellent; even better, though, the dialogue on films, Dr Who etc is now audible and distinguishable from the effects (supposedly 'background' noise). What a difference! So pleased that I bought another set to go on my laptop (used for Band in a Box) with just as satisfactory results. I'm sure it's possible to spend more - a lot more - but, for the moment, these are very much more than adequate, and excellent value for money.
