1.0 out of 5 stars the buttons don't work, 29 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Muse M-125 CRB (Electronics)
I bought mine from Amazon France (where I live) as the reviews there were OK. However when I had problems, I took a look at the Amazon UK site and found one review:

I had exactly the same problem as Renee - it took about a dozen attempts to set the time. Then I unplugged it, and had to go through the same procedure again, with the same result.

Having finally got the time set, I tried to play a CD. The On/Off button proved to be as unreliable as the Time buttons, but eventually the CD started playing. I tried the Pause button, which only worked at about the tenth attempt, then the Play/Pause button refused to restart the CD.

And the sound quality is not great either....

Fortunately I still had the packaging, so it's now on the way back to Amazon. Thank goodness for their returns policy :)

Lightweight, but a decent "odd couple" film. The two stars play their usual characters, but enjoy the occasional departure (drug dealers, airport and brothel), and they work well together. The faux indian scout is entertaining too. Good undemanding fun.

The image is not magnified as much as I had hoped, and it is very sensitive to distance, but for something which slips into your pocket it does a reasonable job.

I've had a bit of trouble pairing devices with it (but that may be the fault of the devices). Once paired, it gets on with the job very well. And it's not expensive :)

I only use it for Windows Backup, so don't have much interaction with the drive, but plug n play was faultless, and it sits quietly (and neatly) on the desktop and does its job.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent value gloves, 25 July 2014

Can't really fault them, especially at the price. Decent grip, and reasonably durable. The large size is a bit small for me, but despite the robust efforts required to take them off, they still don't tear.

Not much to say really. It has a quality feel to it, and it works. Can't fault it, especially at the price.
