5.0 out of 5 stars My Dad's WAHL clippers, 27 April 2009
I have inherited my Dad's WHAL Super Taper clippers the date stamp shows they were made September 1967, he was a professional hairdresser most of his life and he used his clippers most days, I am using them now to cut my hair and they are still doing a fantastic job over 40 years after they were first made. So if you have any doubts about the quality or price of these clippers don't have. My Dad used to work for a firm called Jerry Rex and he cut hair for people like Tommy Cooper, Sean Connery, John Wayne. So buy them today but make sure you remember to tell somebody who is getting them after you have gone!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as music for cool cats, 10 Mar. 2009
Some of tracks on here are also on music for cool cats and some of the other tracks are not that good I was hoping for more of the same quality and I have only listened to this maybe 3 times since buying it which says it all for me really

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the anecdotes but poor editing, 10 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Live and at Large (Audio CD)
Jimmy sounds good but some of the editing and cut offs at the end of the tracks leaves allot to be desired his stories are funny and if any of you have seen him in concert it really bring it all back to you. so to sum up good music but get a better sound editor next time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy peasy, 10 Mar. 2009
I bought this screen protector having scratched my Ipod touch I know how clumsy! I read the instructions carefully cleaned the screen and washed my hands then took everything into the kitchen and on a clean dust free worktop followed the instructions first using the cloth provided getting the little plastic card out that helps to smooth out the bubbles. I then as it said peeled back a little of the protective film cover and placed it on the itouch starting at the button end I had to take it off and line up a few times to get it straight but with a little patience it was fine Then carefully pulling back more of the protective film I slowly stuck it to the screen ironing out any little bubbles that I could see then once I had finished I removed the second protective film and polished off the screen. At first glance you would not know it was on you can only tell around the main screen button were it is cut out around it. No visible loss of brightness that I can see and no refraction of the screen quality from light bouncing back into the screen from the film.

So read the instructions take it slowly wash your hands do it in a fairly dust free setting and you should have no problems with this. Oh I have tried the matte version of this and its much thicker and probably affords better protection but it refracts light back into the screen reducing quality which to my mind is not acceptable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea but not very good, 12 Dec. 2008
I tried all three sizes of the ear plug and every time the fit was so bad on the earphone that it was left in my ear when i removed the earphone so I guess you live and learn at least i didn't have to wait weeks for them to arrive they came next day and now they can go straight in the bin as they are of no use

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother, 3 Aug. 2007
I bought this mainly for the CD thinking that it would be help me with the language, I was wrong. There is a long spiel before the CD gets going so you think I will skip track one to get to the reason I bought this, but the spiel is attached to the basic expressions lesson! Meaning that every time you want to listen, you have to fast-forward 2 minutes to the start of the first lesson. Then they have 4 different people saying the phrases, which gets confusing, as one of them is the person who was doing the introduction. The spacing between phrases is very short in some places and longer in others. Also the way it takes you through the expressions it jumps in basic expressions from saying hello to "I don't speak much Czech" in less than 1 minute. Just hopeless!!! No repetition of the expression just one short burst so short it is very hard to rewind on the remote control. If anybody who is thinking of doing a spoken CD for Czech, and knows what they are doing they don't have any competition! The book that comes with it is fine and detailed so buy that on its own or the Rough guide one but not the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sound, 1 Jun. 2007
I have been looking for something with a great sound, compact stylish and with remote control oh and if possible battery powered that can be recharged and didn't cost the earth!!! Well this is it I have an Intempo dock with speakers that sounds rubbish in comparison to this. The logitech sound is just superb, good bass good treble and the unit is easily portable in its sleek black case. In case you wanted the measurements here they are when packed flat in the case its 34cm long 13cm wide and 5 cm deep unpacked its 33cm by 11cm by 4cm. I put these measurements in because they are lacking in any product description that I have read and I wanted this mainly to take on holiday and it is perfect. The mains adapter is not too bulky unlike the intempo one that weighs about 500 grams on its own! So to recap great sound great price great looks and great features
