Much larger than I had expected, but fits perfectly on my induction hob. Works brilliantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blissful sleep, 30 May 2016

I've tried many sleep masks over the past decade or so, and all have proven so uncomfortable as to be unwearable. But not this one.

This sleep mask fits well, without obstructing the nose, allowing easy breathing. It's also very comfortable and blocks out almost all light; the only light that gets through is due to gaps around the bridge of the nose.

Absolutely useless. No more effective than cleaning the affected area with water.

It's made a three year old very happy, now that she can build houses and swimming pools with her Duplo.. without needing Daddy's help to keep all the blocks in place.

Excellent as a volume control for a 2015 MacBook, but useless for everything else. No media controls work.

Pretty awful. Requires physical connection or connectivity to its own wireless network (despite it allegedly being able to work with existing ones), then complains that 'the cartridge is empty or unable to feed media' when both are clearly false. One for the rubbish bin.

It might be okay, but I have to rummage around for a cable that suits it, since mine came with an EU plug.

I'm using this to connect to our Mac mini for use as a media server. Set up was easy (i.e. pretty much nothing to do other than plug in and configure via the Display Preferences), and it works very well. Display is nice, in-built speakers are fine for their size.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Main Event, 8 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Ys (Audio CD)
Ys initially left be baffled and smitten, but not any more.

Joanna's debut album The Milk-Eyed Mender is a unique adventure: songs played on harp and harpsichord, with imaginative, weirdly-worldy lyrics, sung in the voice of a 5 year old girl. But, Ys is different. Different because it exposes the purpose of that debut album, which was to demonstrate that she could write songs. Throughout Ys, Joanna basically looks at that album and says 'Okay, I've done some simple songs, now I'll do what I want to do!" The Milk-Eyed Mender is a come-hither tease for the main event, which is Ys.

Ys is spell-binding. And it requires complete undivided attention. Let your mind wander anywhere else and the spell will be broken, and yes, you'll end up being baffled too. You need to concentrate on everything: Joanna's stories, the way she sings, the melodies she sings, and the orchestral backing. It's this orchestration which one could think of as 'difficult'. Because, whilst Joanna sings and plays her harp, the backing meanders, as if to dab paint on the worlds she constructs. Sometimes holding back, sometimes scampering forward beyond the song. The aftertaste of the orchestration is just as important as what is actually played. Despite the lush production, there is so much missing. And that's very cool. Don't be put off by the length of each track either - there is no time or space when listening to this album.

Go and buy Ys, please. You may not hear anything like it for the next four hundred years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh joy, 10 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Random Order (Audio CD)
Where do I start? I know nothing about Juliet. She released this song Avalon which I became slightly familiar with. Then most recently came Ride the Pain. This was a lot more inticing. A perfect merging of rock and dance music, written by people who understand that nuances should be found inside music, whilst they demonstrated and exhibited their knowledge of the history of electronic and guitar based composition.
But little prepared me for the album. Random Order appears to be the descendent of the pioneers of 80s synth pop, 90s rock, electronica and pop and the magical mystery of the 60s. Or, if you're looking for specifics, the proper sequel to Madonna's Music, except done properly. It climbs onto your back screams in one ear and whispers in the other.
I'm left wondering: is this the perfect album? I've spent the best part of 20 years of my life ferreting around trying to find good music, and, yes, I've found a lot of fantastic stuff, but I've never found an album that's as faultless as Random Order, for it made my jaw drop, it made me shiver, it made me cry and it stimulated my musical intellect.
