M-Audio BX5 D2 Powered Monitor Speaker
M-Audio BX5 D2 Powered Monitor Speaker
Price: £125.13

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good for the money, 14 Mar 2014
Arrived next day and well packed by Amazon.

I'm running these speaker with a Focusrite Saffire 6 USB soundcard.
I've only run these speakers at low volumes and for a short time period, so they will probably need to 'bed in' a little longer, but they sound exceptionally good for the money, really clear, very little distortion and with precise soundstaging. This is everything a monitor should be and considering the price, these active monitors put a lot of Hi-Fi and other monitor speakers to shame.

Well done M-audio!

Makes good chips quickly with hardly any oil.

It's actually a radiant ring inside with a circulating fan, nothing really high tech and for £90, Phillips must be making a killing! But it does work well, and makes nice food.

I put this in the fridge and its working still after 12 months. For the price you can't go wrong and it seems reasonably accurate.

Just like the original, but at least two shades darker. It's a shame the blue plastic on my casio watch has faded, but it looks ok with the new strap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than a excercise bike., 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the Tacx Blue Matic trainer for a proper cycle workout. The seven settings are pretty versatile and can give a steep climb if you want, plus you can use your gears.
The frame is very sturdy and strong and easily supports the bike (Jamis Ventura Comp) even when out of the saddle. Quick release skewer is easy to fit and looks okay.

Quite pleased with my purchase and this trainer gets close to the feel of real cycling but indoors of course. The pedalling action with the trainer is quite smooth, and there is hardly any slippage between roller and tyre.

Noise levels and vibration are tolerable, but you would probably want to use this trainer in a separate room to as not to annoy others.

The only issue I have is that my rear tyre has a worrying amount of wear after the first 45 minute workout, with black bits of rubber littering the floor under my bike. This is a smooth road 700c tyre and I wouldn't expect this kind of wear so soon. I've adjusted the trainer so hopefully with less contact pressure, this will subside.

3.0 out of 5 stars Do you need it?, 12 Dec 2013
I bought the Tacx Blue Matic trainer which is wonderful, however the trainer is so sturdy that I have the front wheel straight on the floor. I really don't think that this wheel support is necessary.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother, 30 Nov 2013
Cheap and not so cheerful I'm afraid.

Bought one of these (same product under different brand). These are mass produced in China and available under different guises and from different retailers.

With the first hub I bought, the AC/DC power supply stopped working after 2 days. I contacted the seller and received a new hub and psu, sadly after another 3 days the second psu failed.

The first hub then stopped working after a couple of months.

In all, I wouldn't bother with the hassle of this product, it is low quality and unreliable. Also as others have found, this hub/psu may damage your pc as well.

My advice is to spend a little more on a known, branded hub which is likely to work, and not cause any damage to your expensive PC.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incorrectly Priced?, 18 May 2013
I have been looking for a iphone holder for my racer,and this product combines this function and also storage as well. It is a good design. but I have seen this iphone holder/bag available elsewhere for £14, surely the price displayed on amazon must be wrong!

Gives some much needed protection to the iPad. The iPad 4 I tried it with fitted snugly in the case. It's quite convenient as a stand for the iPad and when watching movies with the ipad on a desk or table. Construction is very plasticly, but to be expected. A pen is supplied which is a refillable ball point pen (surprise) and also a stylus for the iPad's touchscreen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, 31 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The keyboard works quite well, and also functions as a convenient stand for the iPad 4. Since it's blue-tooth it should work with all iPads, so no need to worry about the Thunderbolt connector. The construction is okay, quite plastically and painted silver, but for £15 not surprising either. When traveling the keyboard might give some protection when clipped over the iPads front, however it will only protect the screen side, with the iPad's back casing exposed.

The keyboard works well, the keys have a very small amount of travel so don't expect to type much on this, but it does have it's uses for browsing the internet, e-mail and chat. Pretty good overall.
