Ricoh GC-5 Leather Case for Ricoh GR Camera Black
Ricoh GC-5 Leather Case for Ricoh GR Camera Black

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless case with bad two-piece design - expect better from Ricoh, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On receiving this case it came in two sections that try as I might, simply couldn't get to fit and stay together - hence the 1 star rating. It might have been a faulty product but the two piece design and particularly the single closure appeared 'a fault waiting to happen' so had to return it. To give Amazon their due, their returns and refund system worked seamlessly but given the Ricoh GR is such a briliiant compact camera, it's a shame the same can't be said of its accesories....come on Ricoh, sort this case out! I have instead purchased a £10 Lowepro padded case that fits the camera perfectly.

HTC 3.5mm Bluetooth Streamer Audio Bridge Car Stereo Clip - Black
HTC 3.5mm Bluetooth Streamer Audio Bridge Car Stereo Clip - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy setup & excellent sound quality, 5 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My HTC Stereo Clip A200 actually arrived earlier than stated which was great as after a quick bluetooth setup/pairing with my HTC One, followed by plugging into the Aux-input in my car, this has proved to be one of the best 'gadgets' I have bought this year and taken my in-car musical enjoyment to a whole new level! When used with HTC's brilliant car-app, which allows Beats Audio usage and other apps such as Spotify and Google Play Music to be accessed via bluetooth, the resultant audio quality is superb, interference free and actually better than my previous cable connection which had a slight 'hiss' at higher volumes. Can't comment yet on battery life as have been using it with a Cellular Line micro-USB 12V charger, given my car's power socket is adjacent to the Aux-in, but so far so good. However a word of warning...given some of the previous comments on the earlier (A100) model, if you own a HTC One make sure you buy the latest A200 model which given my experience should avoid all the unnecessary problems, hassle and general disappointment mentioned by some.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good radio but beware of the buzzing!, 12 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No doubt there's a good DAB radio/ipod dock lurking underneath the sleek and shapely design but if you DON'T like listening to music with a constant buzzing in the background.....DON'T buy the Chronos iDock II. After setting the iDock up on our bedside table, I laid back to enjoy some Pink Floyd off my Ipod only to hear that Gilmour, Waters & co had been joined by a new, annoying member.....a constant buzzing noise....which made for very annoying listening indeed. Checking the internet I noticed I wasn't the first to experience this, having been a problem with original iDock, but after contacting Pure support they said the original problem had been sorted and simply suggested returning it to Amazon for a replecemnt. However I feared this problem wasn't a one-off so returned it for a full refund which was duly spent on a Pure Siesta iDock from Comet......only to find that after setting that up and laying back for more Pink Floyd, within minutes the display started flickering between the different light settings then went off completely, never to return again! So that iDock was duly returned and replaced with a cheaper Sony XDRDS12IP....which has worked flawlessly and sounds excellent with no annoying buzzes or flickering displays! No doubt Pure do make some reliable products but if you're looking at one of their DAB iDocks, you have been warned!


WebPlus X4 - Slim case (PC)
WebPlus X4 - Slim case (PC)

5.0 out of 5 stars Website creation made easy, 24 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For someone like myself, with virtually no previous experience of web creation, WebPlus X4 is a joy to use and a package I would highly recommend to those not interested in direct editing of HTML code. With multiple templates to start you off, it is very easy to create a professional looking website although with so many functions and features 'on tap' it does take some time getting used to where everything is. The virtual preview feature, using any of the web browsers you have on your computer, is a very useful feature and alongside the site-checker allows off-line testing of the website prior to upload. However the crowning glory for this package is the free web hosting that is included in the price - and probably worth the money in its own right!

5.0 out of 5 stars Zonebridge 100, 12 Nov. 2010

As simple to set-up as Sonos claim - although you can't do much else with it until you invest in a more expensive Zoneplayer to complete your wireless music system.

5.0 out of 5 stars The easy way to becoming a 'wine ponce'!, 18 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For anyone who enjoys a glass of red, white, rose or even 'bubbly' but is keen to know more about what they're actually drinking, Oz's book is a must read - particularly at the price charged by Amazon. Written in Oz's unique style you can always sense his passion for all things wine - well most of them - but it is also full of 'wine facts', which will both please a certain Mr James May and make your trip around the local supermarket's wine section all the more enjoyable. However be prepared to spend time - and I mean alot more time - mulling over the various labels in order to search out a particular grape variety, region of France or even vineyward which appears to happen when you're on the road to becoming a 'wine ponce'. Cheers Oz!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good looks, plenty of features but sound is somewhat lacking!, 8 Jan. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
[...]but to me it looks more like a mini cylinder vacuum cleaner perched on its end!! An interesting analogy but the 'cute' design does actually look alot better in reality than when viewed on screen - and sounds somewhat better than a vacuum cleaner! The buttons are rather on the small side and being principally 'crammed' down the bottom of the front panel, are pretty fiddly to operate one-handed. However after some initial 'fumbling in the dark' you do quickly get used to them, although still require two-handed dexterity to avoid accidentally shoving it off your bedside table in mid-channel hopping! The two, seperate displays work well and although the green LED clock is manually set, is very easy to view compared to some other smaller DAB radio displays - but even on its dimmest setting it may disturb some of the lighter sleepers out there. The DAB radio works pretty well, given the limitations of the supplied T-shaped ribbon aerial although can be frustrating when your favourite radio station just happens to be be the one it has trouble picking up - in this day and age is there not a better alternative to the ribbon aerial? However the one thing that is really disapointing is the sound - yes the DAB stereo signal does sound exceedingly clear indeed and even though is in glorious stereo, it does sound rather 'tinny'. Unfortunately for me and Goodmans it's not a patch on the 'pure', bassier sound eminating from the larger DAB radio in my kitchen - but what do you expect for less than £[...]? A tone control might help! All in all not a bad attempt from Goodman's but if sound quality is your priority, I'd suggest listening to the competion rather than just reading about it as I did!
