Received these free of charge after buying another product but nonetheless, they are very good. Only really capable of holding one cable each otherwise would have got 5 starts.

Exactly what I needed for an upcoming USA road trip. Great price for the genuine article. Works perfectly in my Nuvi 2598. Delivered fairly quickly despite coming from North America. Highly recommended.

This is a great strap. It locks on easily and will not unlock accidently. It keeps my guitars from accidental falls! Highly recommended. Note: the colour shown is accurate, more maroon than red but just what I wanted.

Proform 380 Razor Cross Trainer - Silver / Orange, 60X135X164 cm

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor build quality., 25 Feb. 2013
I received a Razor 380 as a warranty replacement for an earlier ProForm machine which broke down twice with 7 months of purchase. On arrival the Razor seemed a step up, I liked the reflex system which made the stride a little softer. However, in the first 2 years whilst under warranty it needed a new flywheel, new belt, and a new console. The magnets would hit the flywheel above 8 on resistance (should go to 12 or more), making many of the programmes unuseable. Then the display stopped working properly just out of warranty so opened up the machine and had a look. The wiring loom had no slack and hence had chaffed through. Splicing in some extra wire and ensuring it didn't rub against anything sorted that.Then this week, with the machine about 3 years old there was a loud crack followed by a very annoying groaning from the frame. Opening the machine revealed a crack at the base of the main upright which looks like a fatique fracture going through two screw holes. This makes the machine a right off as further use would be dangerous. Cheap and nasty is too good a discription. The only positive thing is that Icon Customer services have been pretty good and do respond fairly quickly to email.. I would not bother trying to phone any helpdesk these days due to cost and automatic answering systems. My advice, avoid all of Icon's equipment which is just not built right! The same company are responsible for about 6 makes.

John Mellencamp is a great singer/songwriter with a style similar to Springsteen or Dylan at their best. Little known in the UK but good country/rock/folk all the same. At the price on Amazon this double CD is well worth a listen.

A good buy at the price (cheap) but as a consequence the cable is a little thin. Even so, it does the trick and is about the cheapest around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Gift, 13 Nov. 2010
This is an inexpensive but very pleasant fragrance. Online it costs well under half the high street price. It is the favourite fragrance of both my wife and 20yr old daughter so makes a great gift!


Shure Beta 57A micro instrument
Shure Beta 57A micro instrument
Offered by One Way Shop
Price: £122.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great For Almost Anything, 18 Aug. 2010
The Shure Beta 57a is an outstanding dynamic microphone. It works well on amps, drums and is a very good vocal mic. Very similar but a bit cheaper than the Beta 58a and in my opinion, more versatile due to the shape of the windshield. With a supercardoid polar pattern feedback rejection is excellent, and it has a higher output level than most dynamic mics, making the sound engineer's life a little easier. Very well made and can easily withstand a bit of rough handling.

Pros: Great sound quality, versatile, extremely robust, good feedback rejection and high output level along with good looks. An industry standard!

Cons: None as long as you get a real one. The only con is that there are lots of counterfeits about. If you are not buying from a Shure authorised dealer or contemplating buying second-hand then make sure you do some research beforehand so that you can spot a fake (Google "fake Beta 57a" for lots of info). Many of the counterfeits will be advertised as used, but some are supposed to be new.

5.0 out of 5 stars Behringer Ultra-DI DI4000, 25 Oct. 2009
I have 2 of these which I use with a Behringer Mixer Amp and sometimes an eight channel 15m multicore. They are quiet and easily adapted to different input signal levels to ensure a good working level at the mixer input. 4 channel active DI at this price is unbeatable. The only downside is that the inputs are on the rear and the outputs are on the front. I would prefer these to be the other way around! A lot of people knock Behringer gear but I now have 3 units (2 x DI4000 and a PMP5000), all of which are used for gigs without any problems. You cannot get more value for your money if on a tight budget. Both of my DI4000 units are safely housed in a Stagg 2U rack bag.
