5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best streamers available at any price, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is still a mystery to me why this brilliant product was discontinued. It has a good, but not brilliant, interface, a nice colour touch screen and all the connectivity you could want. If you add a regulated power supply (such as Teddy Pardo TTouch) it is as good a hifi streamer as any product at any price. Using an out-board DAC also provides some small improvements, but the integrated one if very good too. Just wish I had bought a spare one as I will be very sad the day mine dies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exhilarating, 20 April 2014

It's a great story, which is well told and full of drama. I have read three different accounts of the Bravo Two Zero mission and this is definitely worth the time to read.

Adding the cover does not change the performance of the touch screen and adds some useful protection. Recommended, particularly if your tablet will be used be children who are not too careful.

Take care when installing not to get ink on your hands, but otherwise these cartridge work perfectly and are a bargain compared with the "official" items

3.0 out of 5 stars Heavy and with design flaws, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first one I received failed on the first day. The second one is still working, but it is heavy, awkward and full of minor design flaws that take away from the user experience. It cleans carpets pretty well, cannot fault that really, but the fluid reservoir tank is not the same size as the waste tank (why!?) and the waste tank is very hard to empty completely due to the position of the hole (did no one test this?). The handle is also hard, uncomfortable with sharp edges and gave me blisters. So, in summary, it is crude but effective, if only they conducted a bit of user testing the rough edges might be taken off and this could be a much nicer product to use.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was great, until I lost it, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Take the warnings about the wrist band and belt clip seriously, neither is very well designed and there is a serious risk that the wrist strap will fall off (due to such a small overlapping area of velcro) or it will come out of the rubbery belt clip. I really like this device and it works very well and told me a lot about how much exercise I was getting every day and my sleep patterns. I have given it three stars however, as I only had it for 2 weeks before it fell out of the belt clip on a flight back from NYC never to be seen again. The bluetooth synchronisation also would not work reliably with my Android phone. Sort those things out and it is a 5-star product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for all the family, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this game because of fond memories of Donkey Kong 64. My two sons aged 4 and 6 also think it is brilliant. It's funny, fun and challenging, but not so hard you get bored. Essential if you like DK platformers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb value for money, 20 April 2014

It is a much better item than the previous plastic Hozelock sprinkler I was using being much better constructed and able to water a larger area. This also looks and feels like it will last decades.

This review is from: If You Wait (Audio CD)
This the best début album in a generation, with several truly stand out tracks. Essential listening for anyone with an interest in trip hop.
