Decrescent BTR100 Bluetooth Home Music Audio Receiver and USB Mains Charger for Speakers/Docks/Home Entertainment Systems
Decrescent BTR100 Bluetooth Home Music Audio Receiver and USB Mains Charger for Speakers/Docks/Home Entertainment Systems

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product / great price., 19 Oct. 2014
Works straight from the box with most of my Bluetooth devices, input code '0000' and you're ready to stream.

Sound quality is perfectly fine when using something like an iPod speaker dock or bedroom mini-stereo with other devices but when connected to a decent amp or receiver you can hear the limitation of Bluetooth streaming compared to direct connection by wire (or perhaps over WIFI but I haven't a WIFI receiver unit to compare against as they cost a lot more) .... this is not a criticism of this product but an observation of the limitations of streaming by Bluetooth.


Replacement Handle for 9 Cup Moka Express
Replacement Handle for 9 Cup Moka Express
Price: £7.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Moka Handle, 27 Jun. 2014
Handle arrived promptly, was well packaged and exactly as described.

Found it a little difficult to remove the original retaining pin on the handle due to be replaced but once this was out fitting this replacement handle, drilling a hole for the retaining pin and putting it all together was straight forward.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works fine to Blackberry Z10, 2 Jun. 2014
Even though this app is labelled as the Kindle Edition it works fine on a BlackBerry Z10, in fact, I'm currently listening to the Neil Young covers play list (was just testing it out and was surprised how good some if these songs are! ) using a bluetooth connector to my hi-fi.....really impressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, sometimes unrealistic...., 2 April 2014
My 11 year old and 9 year old children gave thoroughly enjoyed reading this book which is nicely presented so very accessible for all ages.

I've docked one star, perhaps harshly, as I feel that some of the suggestions / projects are unrealistic for a parent with normal skills / available time to be able to help achieve so giving children unattainable expectations. As said, I am probably being very harsh as if everything could be easily done then it wouldn't help expand / broaden the child's imagination.

Overall, thoroughly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars bit cheap and cheerful, did the job for a one off use., 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Prompt delivery, all as described, satisfied customer.

My son required a 'white rabbit' setup for school fancy dress, this was more than adequate for the cost and whilst now lives in the dressing up drawer I'm not convinced it will survive many more uses.

My daughter has recently passed her Grade 1 Piano exam and asked for this as a present. It is possibly it little beyond her ability for 'self taught' though should fit in nicely with teacher assistance.

Prompt delivery, all as described, satisfied customer.

5.0 out of 5 stars 9 coffee cup for 2 mugs, excellent coffee nonetheless :-), 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Prompt delivery, all as described, satisfied customer.

Really happy with this Moka Express, very easy to use (use low heat so as to not burn the coffee) though make sure you don't use a coffee that is too finely ground otherwise you end up with something more akin to turkish coffee rather than espresso.

Unless you are using proper ie small, coffee cups then this will make two good sized mugs of coffee which you then add frothed milk to for a great cappuccino. Only downside to this is if trying to make more than two mugs at a time as it takes a while to cool down sufficiently to allow fresh coffee granules and water to be added.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, good seller., 14 Oct. 2012
My son's school recommended that we purchase this book to help him with his preparation for the 11+ examination in 2013.

It has proved to be a useful addition to his learning material, not only for expanding a child's vocabulary through the introduction of new words but also for testing their understanding not only in comprehension exercises but also with general knowledge questions.

The book was delivered promptly so happy with the seller as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing product BUT needed to amend drivers for it to work with Ubuntu 11.10, 16 Jan. 2012
Edimax EW-7811UN Wireless 802.11b/g/n 150Mbps Nano USB Adaptor

I purchased this Wifi adaptor so that I could relocate my headless music server pc running Ubuntu 11.10 to a location away from ethernet cabling.

The adapter really is small, about the size of a 5 pence coin, the majority of which sits within the usb port so it has a very small profile.

Unfortunately, despite the product being advertised as working with Linux I found that my Ubuntu 11.10 pc would only connect for approximately 5 seconds then disconnect and keep going into a loop of no-connection.

A search on Google came to my rescue in the form of the following: -

[...]

and after following the instructions and rebooting my pc this Wifi adaptor has worked flawlessly.

The instructions are straightforward but you must have the confidence to access and modify the files through 'terminal'; this should not be a problem for seasoned Ubuntu users however as novice at this type of thing I found it a little daunting.

Whether this initial setup problem is a fault of the adaptor or Ubuntu I don't know however I have withheld 'one star' on the basis of this problem.

The Ubuntu pc is now relocated approximately 30 foot away from the router and has two solid brick walls and two wooden bookshelves between it. As I type this review it is showing a throughput of 72Mb/s on the pc however my router is showing the connection at only 38Mb/s so who knows which if either is correct. Irrespective of the figures it is fast enough and stable enough to allow the pc to run as a media server.

Overall, I rate this product highly and it only misses out on 5 stars as it wasn't truly plug-n-play.
