5.0 out of 5 stars Finally some decent pants!, 12 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fit - I'm a slim 32" waist and the S/M is perfect. The material is very thin and smooth and the quality is very good for the price.

Comfort - I've always had problems with normal 'seamed' trunks cutting into my old chap, so seamless trunks are a must for me. These are spot on. So comfy it's like not wearing any!

Value for money - Previously I was wearing Calvin Klein concept seamless trunks, which are also great, but they're £20 for ONE pair!! These are a steal, and better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well made, 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A superbly made cable for a very good price and it never tangles, which is a bonus!! I can't say I can really detect much of a sound improvement (bought for use with Philips Fidelio X1) but it's certainly no worse than the apparently super resistive standard cable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the easiest wire to terminate, 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's OK, but the wires are a bit flimsy compared to premium wire, so not the easiest to push into CAT 5 connectors.

Does the job for a good price though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not ideal for mobile phones, 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you use a phone with this, you will get lots of "plip plip plip buzzzzzzzzz plip plip plip" noises through the speakers as the mobile polls the local radio masts. I would recommend you switch the phone into Aeroplane mode when driving, which will solve that problem.

Otherwise a well made product. The black wire needs earthing to the radio case otherwise the Gamma radio will think the 'CD player' isn't connected (after a minute or so) and switch to the radio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent drive, 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No complaints at all from this drive, well, apart from the stupidly short cable but where it counts (under the hood) it's as good as it gets.

I have 'backed up' 100s of BluRays using this drive, one after the other, day after day for months and it's never faltered. It gets a little warm when heavily used though!

5 out of 5 for price, performance and reliability.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value, 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This drive comes with a Thunderbolt cable and features 2 x 4TB Western Digital Red 'NAS' drives. The earlier models shipped with Caviar Green drives which are awful, so I'm glad Western Digital upgraded to the Reds. The Reds are tailored for frequent access in NAS / Raid configurations and therefore are more reliable, which is reflected in the 3 year warranty (compared to 2 years for the Green drive).

I researched large desktop storage options for months and this is by far the best £ per TB option currently available. Other RAID 0 options from LaCie and G Tech are a lot more expensive and much noisier because of cooling fans.

This drive comes under criticism from storage experts because it uses 'slow' 5400rpm drives and the case is made of plastic instead of the more trendy aluminium. Honestly, who cares about plastic when the storage is this cheap. It's nicely constructed, almost silent and runs cool. Silence is more important than style. As for the 5400rpm drives, yes it's old technology but it's also reliable technology and that makes for a more reliable backup. If you want the fastest possible read and write speeds, you'll be wanting 7200rpm drives from rival products, but you'll be paying a lot more money.

Overall an excellent drive for someone who wants a lot of storage at a good price and isn't after the fastest read / write speeds.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sounds great but be warned: you will get a lot of Mobile phone interference., 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like other VW Gamma Aux-in adapters, this hijacks the CD input (the blue plug) and therefore you can either have the Aux in, or the CD player, but not both together. You need to ground the brown wire to chassis (or stereo case) ground or the Gamma will just say "No disc" and switch back to Radio.

The Audio quality is really good, but there is one very significant problem.

Remember that annoying "Blip Blip da Blip da Blip buzzzzzzz" noise you got through the speakers just before receiving a text message? Yeah, you will get a LOT of that with this adapter. If you have an iPhone, switch it to "Airplane Mode" to turn off the transceiver, otherwise the buzzing will drive you insane.

I never got any buzzing with the CD player in place, so this adapter has introduced the problem. I don't know if this problem is common to all of these Aux-in adapters which replace the CD player, but in view of this and it's poor build quality, it gets 1 star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain of the century, 5 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got these last week for £151. I see they've increased to £183 but they are still a steal at that price!

These just sound so 'right' the moment you put them on your head and press play.

There really is nothing to complain about at this price point (aside from the open backs).

Comments about changing the cable and comparisons to £650 - £1000+ headphones should be taken with pinches of salt. It's just Audiophile nerdiness spilling over into the 'budget' sector. Whilst sound quality is entirely subjective, most of the negative criticism I've seen directed at the X1 really is just nitpicking.

Probably one of the best all rounders ever made and handsome to boot. High end Sennheisers are among the ugliest things I've ever seen, let alone headphones. How Philips have combined excellent sound quality, good looks, good build quality and high comforts levels, for £150-£180 is a mystery, but one you should take advantage of immediately :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but with one caveat, 31 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great bit of kit but it's not for hardcore movie fans. Why? Because it does not support 24 frames / second. What this means in reality is juddering panning shots, which is mildly irritating to the casual movie watcher at best, and very annoying to film buffs at worst. It can only do 25 or 30 fps. So it has to take a frame away, hence the juddering.

Visually speaking, Blurays that you own 'backed up' to a 1080p m4v file are stunning. I can't see any difference between the disc through my PS3 & Pioneer Plasma, and the 'backed up' file. It's just that lack of native 24fps that stops it earning 5 stars in my opinion. No DTS master audio or Dolby Digital HD either, just good old plain vanilla 5.1.

I hope Apple take this out of the hobby market and develop it into the fully accomplished performer it should be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect fit and finish, 31 Dec. 2013

Fitting this lid and bezel set is quite an involved job but the quality of the case is very good. Wifi still works perfectly (it's built into the lid case) and the laptop looks new again. Quick delivery and very well packed.
