AirPlay/DLNA Receiver (PRO)
AirPlay/DLNA Receiver (PRO)
Price: £3.84

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it should be for a pricey app., 28 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AirPlay/DLNA Receiver (PRO) (App)
Using from a Mac, mostly does the job it claims, but not as elegantly as it could. A bit "clunky", I suppose. There's a need to increase the latency buffer for AirPlay from iTunes to avoid occasional stutters (and a couple of other settings are worth taking a look at too). Cover Artwork a bit hit and miss on iTunes playback and appears in a pop-up window which can't be enlarged (so you stare at the Fire's menu screen - pointless!).

Maybe it's been developed for connection to i-Devices and not tested enough with Macs?

All in all, it does the job, but for the price, not well enough. AirReceiver does the job just as well (or better) for half the price (at least for my needs and uses).

Shame FireTV apps don't have a tryout period to get a refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Smart Device and it works with Apple/Mac like the new Apple TV!, 13 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This thing is simply amazing.

Load up free apps for all the UK catch ups, Netflix or whatever you enjoy.

Spend less than 2 quid on AirReceiver and it gives full AirPlay connection to your Mac (and, I guess iPhone, etc) so you can mirror your screen or play music from iTunes. AND you have an Android friendly eco-system that, if like me you love Macs, but hate iOS devices: best of both worlds. Works like a dream with Plex media server. Did I forget to mention Prime Video, Prime Music? Voice searches? Not much else you could need! And it's fast. Button pushes are really responsive.

Best bit of entertainment tech I've come across in a long while.

Really comfortable. An indoor shoe as much as a slipper.

Price: £6.22

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Last Long, 12 Jan. 2016

Great looking feeder, but there are problems.

1) It holds so many nuts that unless a Biblical swarm of blue tits (et al) fly into your neighbourhood, most of the nuts will have become mouldy before they're eaten.

2) The silvery cover is fixed with a flimsy plastic cap on to a screw. The screw rusts quickly so the cap can't be moved to refill. In the bin in 6 weeks.

Pretty, but pointless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone, 30 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This will divide the crowd. It's a grain not malt blend, so is lighter and not complex. So, if your a whiskey snob, you'll hate it before you've tasted it. It's a light daytime scotch, good also for mixing or cocktails. Not ever going to be a favourite of mine, but I'm not pouring it away, either. Price? Not worth more than £30 given the array of good blends and NAS malts available these dsys.

Great little heater. Others have noted the wide grille but only idiots poke knives into electrical equipment. Maybe think twice, however, if you have little ones at home.

Does what it says and doesn't blind you as some do. However, not a lot of clock for the cash. A cheap looking plastc and not much in the way of controls or features.

This replaced a fairly expensive Onkyo SW and tbh, in my average sized room, produces a more balanced and mellow than it's predecessor. Totally amazing for the price.
