Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a bit worried that the flap protecting the ports on my Z3 compact will break and I got tired of having to open it up whenever I needed to charge the phone, so I decided to buy this magnetic charger. The charger works well and seems to be about as quick as a cable, but I find attaching it to the charging port on the phone a bit fiddly. My other gripe is the extremely bright LED that shines from the back of the charger whether it's charging the phone or not. A more subdued LED or one that changes colour to indicate charging state would be welcome.

I'm going to keep using the magnetic charger for now, although it isn't quite as convenient as I had hoped.

I've been impressed with these bamboo socks. They're comfortable and breathable without being too thin, and they've held up to quite a lot of walking lately. I took them on holiday with me in California and, when I had to wear socks, these were able to vent some of the steam from my molten feet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pricey, but worth it, 26 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I try to avoid changing the strings on my acoustic long after they've lost their brightness and their ability to stay in-tune, so any string that purports to increase the longevity of these qualities is welcome, even if the price is a bit higher than other strings.

Restringing using the D'Addarios is about as much of a hassle as any other set of strings, but it's certainly no worse, and the colour-coded sizes are a nice usability feature.

The difference between these and my old Ernie Ball Light acoustic strings is marked, even based on how I remember the Ernies sounding when I first used them. The tone is bright and 'lively'. After a few weeks of playing about 20 minutes a day, sometimes more, the tuning has held up well. Based on this, I expect the EXP16s to maintain their tone and tuning a lot better than my previous set of strings.

4.0 out of 5 stars I also dislike cables in general, 19 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Judging from my experience with the unreplaceable batteries that came with my PS3, I kind of expect my dual shock 4 controllers to eventually need charging every 20 minutes of use. I also dislike cables in general, so anything that reduces their number on my desk is welcome.

This charging station comes with extra batteries that attach to your dualshock 4 controllers without adding too much weight. They work in conjunction with the existing battery inside the controller, extending the uptime to 18hrs according to the manufacturer. It's a difficult thing to test, but I have noticed that they can go for a lot longer without charging.

The dock is made of glossy black plastic, so it should fit in nicely with the black PS4 and most other home entertaintment equipment. I found inserting the controllers to by quite easy, but it can be a little fiddly to take them out without detaching the battery packs. There's a knack to wiggling them out which takes a little while to learn, hence the loss of a star.

Overall: a good way to extend the battery life of your controllers as well as get rid of some clutter.

Good:
+Adjustable temperature setting works really well for situations where you don't need almost-boiling water, like for steeping green tea or filling a hot water bottle.
+It looks great even after a year of daily use: easy to clean and durable.
+The lid seems solid.
+Boils quickly.

Mediocre:
= The filter at the top can fall out on occasion and can be slightly fiddly to get back in.

Bad:
Nothing.

Overall: an excellent kettle that looks great and functions well.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good option, 18 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this pen to carry me through the hours of note-taking and exams involved in getting an Open University degree. I have a cramped writing style that leads to cramped muscles in my hand, so any pen that allows me to change my grip for a while to relieve the overworked muscles is very useful to me. The Yoropen writes about as well as any Biro, and I find the grip less fatiguing than most pens.

My only quibble is that the plastic is quite fragile: my first one broke after only a few days. However, that pen may have been an outlier, as I've been using the replacement the seller sent me for over a year.

This attractive toaster should fit in well with most other dark themed kitchens and appliances. The timer is reliable and the toasting is even. The only problem is that the slots are pretty thin. You'll struggle to get croissants, bagels, and other items thicker than bread slices in there. It's a dealbreaker for me.

*This is a review of a free sample*

Good:
Cool futuristic design - I really like how these headphones look. Although sleek black casing and silver buttons is a familiar colour combination, it works very well here.
Easy to set up - I followed the instructions for setting up the headphones via bluetooth on my Sony Z3C. Took about a minute, and there was no bluetooth authentication code required. The signal is stronger than many bluetooth headphones I've owned in the past: they haven't cut out once since I've been using them.

The sound is loud and slightly harsh, but it's fine for when I'm running or walking to work. I would not buy these with the expectation of listening to the Brandenburg Concertos in high definition while reclining on a chaise-longue.

Mediocre:
The buttons are just a little too small and un-differentiated for my liking. I usually find this with bluetooth headphones though, so it isn't necessarily a criticism of these in particular. It's difficult to put truly user-friendly buttons on such a small headset. I've skipped tracks instead of turning the volume up while running a few times, but I expect I'll get used to the feel soon.

The headband is not adjustable, so if you have a particularly large or small head, you may find it difficult to achieve a good fit.

Bad:
The volume declaring when the headphones are being powered on, off, or pairing is far too loud.

Overall, a good value, good looking set of headphones for when you're out and about.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good value, simple umbrella, 3 May 2015
Length:: 0:23 Mins

*This umbrella was supplied to me as a sample*

As you can see from the video, this restrained looking black umbrella is light enough to open easily with one hand. It's a long umbrella - about as long as a walking stick, and it has a radius fit for you and a close companion. Not quite as wide as a golf umbrella, but certainly wider than most compact auto-open models. The articulated supports look flexible and seem solid enough, although I have not been out in any extreme weather with it yet.

The built quality is good, although the unadorned black plastic handle feels slightly cheap: the seam from the mould is easy to feel and the shape is a bit too regular - it could do with a little more material in the middle perhaps.

Overall, a good value and attractive umbrella.
