5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality enclosure, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this for those times when I need to transport the iPad with some measure of protection, and don't want to take a larger bag. It's just the job, with lots of pockets, enough padding and of sturdy construction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice sound, flimsy wire., 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got theses for my partner to use with her iPad mini, and can report that they sound really good and feel very comfortable on-ear. My one concern is the retractable wire for plugging into the iPad headphone socket, which is super thin. About half the diameter of the same wire used on my own JVC headphones. Hopefully, with gentle treatment, it will last well enough. But it does seem flimsy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and secure, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this for my partner's iPad Mini 2' and can report that is is of quality construction. Just enough padding to protect against minor bangs, and the detritus of handbags. An iPad mini with a magnetic flip case attached will slide easily Inside this enclosure, and the flap closes with Velcro.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Roberts, 13 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This model was my second attempt at buying a cheap radio for my bathroom. The first, a Roberts portable costing exactly the same as this Sony (at the time of writing), had terrible reception and poor quality sound, so I returned it to Amazin. No such issues with this model. Placed in the same location it pulls in all the stations I want, and produces a nice crisp sound from its large mono speaker. For many stations I don't even need to extend the buil-in arial. The model also sits steadily on a shelf, and although all plastic appears robust enough for normal use. How long lasting it us has yet to be determined, but so far so good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Detriment to the Roberts name, 8 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As the owner of another, excellent quality Roberts radio, I felt safe buying this one. Until it arrived. The tuning is incredibly fiddly (worse than a much smaller pocket radio I bought this to replace), it tends to drift off station easily, and even when receiving the signal quality is shockingly poor. This is measured against the aforementioned pocket radio. Okay, this model is less than a tenth the cost of the other Roberts model I own, but even so I think it reasonable to expect it to work better than a half broken pocket radio. Sadly, I had no choice but to return it for a refund. Will now be trying another brand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Meanders like the Thames, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the fourth book in the series, and the arc continues to meander. Yes, it's entertaining, but there is little progress for the central character, PC Peter Grant. What saves the book and makes it worth buying, is that those who have already read the preceding novels finally get a look at what the character Nightingale can do. There is also significant progress for PC Leslie May. But, too much is teased and not revealed. The author really needs to extract the digit with the next book, or risk this series shifting from a vibrant flowing river, to a silted up tributary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Need a widdle when you're up a mountain?, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having seen this on Dragons Den, I bought one for my partner, who last year had the unenviable experience of being on a mountain in Madiera and finding the only toilet for miles was shut. The Shewee is a neat little easily cleaned and reusable gizmo, that can be packed away for adventures where it might come in useful. Basically, what it does is allow women to pee like men. It can be used through the zip of jeans, thus avoiding being more exposed. This particular model has yet to be tested, but we've booked a holiday in Slovenia, traipsing around the Julian Mountains, so I hope to return here with an update in due course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Janis Ian crossed with Carole King, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Swan Feathers (Audio CD)
We heard Leslie Mendelson performing live, in support of Glenn Tillbrook of Squeeze, on his recent UK tour. She won the crowd over, and showed her class as a songwriter in the vein of Janis Ian and Carole King. Swan Feathers contains some excellent tracks, and is well worth the gamble for those looking for quality that has yet to hit the big time.

I would also recommend seeing her live, and if possible tracking down her latest work including the little known classic songs 'Coney Island' and 'Chasing the Thrill.' Mendelson is a major talent, who is lacking on the big break to reach a wider audience. Get on the train now, while there's room!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dampbusters!, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought two of these units to replace similar models that had basically conked out. They are light enough for most people to move around easily, and the carrying handle is useful to move them if you need to change the unit's position when still running hot.Operation is simplicity itself, and so far they've been enough to make a difference, warming - not really heating - two rooms in which relentless foul weather had led to damp problems. The units are powerful enough to be useful in small and medium sized rooms, or where localized heat it required. But for those who are thinking of heating a much larger space, a larger version will be needed. Durability and reliability have yet to be tested. But unless I update this review, assume that both units, purchased in early Feb 2014, are still working efficiently.
