5.0 out of 5 stars Such a shock !!!!!, 7 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having paid over £100 for my last set of wired earphones and being so disappointed with them I was not happy to risk another £100 on Wireless earphones, so after reading many reviews on Bludio earphones and the price being reasonable I thought Id go in at a low end price just to test the water

I purchased using Amazon Prime and got the delivery the next day (love that) on unpacking the earphones I thought "Oh no these won't be any good" as they are so light and flimsy, but HeyHo I've bought them now so lets try them out

Pairing with my iPhone was simple and connection was established first go, I changed the medium ear piece with the smaller one too get a good seal and played a tune from Amazon music , well look I was amazed (really) the sound was so good far better than the £100 Atomic Floyd failures, I had just dumped the base was brilliant and gets better the tighter the seal in your ear

Ive used the earphones every day for a week using them on my walks so far I've clocked up 7 hours on the initial charge and they are still going strong, from podcasts to streaming music they have been really good and not once have they fell out of ears, on on one day getting thoroughly wet in a downpour

So I am delighted with the earphones and don't think I will ever waste over £100 again on so called top of the range earphones, so if you are thinking about getting these don't hesitate they are really good

***Update 19-03-2016
after the first week with a decent battery life, the second week was really poor the charge lasted 3 days and cut out at 30%, after a recharge it lasted 2 days and cut out at 50% so reluctantly I have returned them, I say reluctantly as the earphones have good sound but I'm not prepared to charge them every 2 days

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a Quality Device, 30 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have 3 iPhones and 2 iPads in the house we charge them nightly but on occasion need a late afternoon charge to finish the day, I purchased the EasyAcc to do this and I am delighted with its performance

I can charge two devices at once a iPad on the 2amp outlet and a iPhone on the 1amp, we have used this combination a couple of time when we have been out of the house and it works perfectly

The unit is well made and feels premium, I can't recommend this unit highly enough and after 2 months of use by all members of the household we just wouldn't be without it

Only yesterday my daughter had a trip to make and the cigar lighter socket in her car was playing up so the Sat Nav couldn't run from it. Simple she just hooked it up to the EasyAcc and went both ways running her Sat Nav from the EastAcc Perfect

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Sound from a small speaker., 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazing Sound from a small speaker.

I purchased the speaker as a Christmas Present for a friend, and it hit the spot, the sound from such a small speaker is amazing, I am told the charge in the battery lasted for 10 days, and now fully charged up he gets 15 days use without problem

I would highly recommend this speaker

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Update 15-12-2013

The PTT button stopped working after 4 days (only made 2 calls) returning for a refund
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I purchased these earphone for use with my Nexus 5, they replaced an old pair of Apple ear buds that I used with my old Nexus 4,

The difference was immediately noticeable, and a good upgrade from the Apple earbuds, these earphones are well made with a nice bass sound, the mid range audio is very sharp and well defined

The flat cable is truly tangle free as I take the earphone out of the supplied velvet pouch its just a case of shaking the free and they unroll without any tangle

The only downside to these earphone is the lack of volume adjustment on the PTT switch, so it means you will have to set the volume before setting off on a walk or run I find this a bit inconvenient, as to adjust the volume on the go means I have to unzip my coat unlock the phone and adjust the volume and on a cold day this is no fun

But on balance for the price the earphones are good value and a step up from amy supplied earphones you get with your new phone

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Fit, 3 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case is a perfect for my Nexus 4. I had been concerned about reports that the Nexus rear panel being glass was susceptible to easy breakage

The case just slipped on the Nexus with out problem and makes the phone seem sturdy and secure, as I charge my Nexus wirelessly I was concerned that the case would interfere with this, but Im happy to report it charges normally on my charging mat with the case fitted

One thing to be aware of is that the clear plastic rear of the case comes with plastic protectors on both the inside and outside, getting this off the inside is not easy and if your not careful you could scratch the plastic I got round this by grabbing a loose end with tweezers and just peeled the plastic off

So I recommend this case, its well made and feels good on the Nexus 4

4.0 out of 5 stars Goog but gives Erratic BMP measurements, 8 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these scales 2 weeks ago and in the main I am happy with them as a scale, the set up was very easy using my iPhone, my first attempt at a weight was a bit hit and miss, as you have to get used to standing in just the right place, the scale gives a visual indication off this by flashing two arrows at you to indicate were you should stand, once I had figured this out it took my weight ok

But its the BPM that seems to be wildly inaccurate, I would suggest that the BMP reading is always compared to a manual reading

The one feature I did like and have found useful is the air quality reading we now sleep with our bedroom window half open and it makes a real difference to our nights sleep

3 members of our family use the scale and it as no problems with recognising us , on the one occasion it did have a problem deciding who was on the scale it flashed up the two names and asked us to choose who it was by leaning toward the correct name being displayed on the screen

I get all the data sent to my iPhone and can track it over time , and I find the web app very good to analyse even deeper

5.0 out of 5 stars My Second Apple TV, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having already purchased an Apple TV from Amazon last year, the second one was a formality so I could to attach it to my upstairs TV

Set up was flawless and as I bought an "Out of Sight Holder" to go with it hanging it on the wall was simple

I can now stream all my iTunes content to the bedroom but more importantly I can start watch something on Netflix using my Apple TV downstairs and continue were I left it on my Apple TV upstairs

its the same with films and TV programs I have attached a photo of the installation its very neat and works like a charm

And with Amazon Prime I ordered it Sunday afternoon and it was delivered by CityLink 11am Monday Morning Perfect all round

5.0 out of 5 stars You really do get to know yourself, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My Jawbone UP seems to amaze me every day as it sets about telling me about my life !!!!!

I have been using it for over a week and already it is changing how I go about my day and night

I now know how inactive I am at certain times of the day, what part of the night I sleep most deeply and how far I walk in a day, and the parts if my diet that need attention, for instance it tells me when I have had my daily allowance if carbs, when I see this I switch to protein for my next meal

And it works amazingly in the week I have had it I have lost 4 Ibs just by adjusting the type of foods I eat at certain times in the day,

My sleep pattern is good and for the first time yesterday I hit 10000 steps but again I changed how I do this, normally I would go for one long walk watch day then sit around, now I take shorter walks but more of them to fill out the inactive periods my Jawbone UP as alerted me to

I can't recommend this product highly enough, I use it with my iPhone and it is a joy to set up and update, I am on the way to a new fitter self

Update 23-08-2013

After just over a month the battery died, it will charge but it discharges in a few hours, to a point were it as become useless, I am 5 days over my return date but the supplier as agreed to take it back, unfortunately this will take time so I am not happy

After searching the internet there are many reports about battery problems on this device, mine always suggested I had 10 days charge once I had fully charged it but in reality at best it only lasted 5 days in the first week then got worse till it only lasted part of a day but after a charge it alway told me i had 10 days so if yours is doing the same and you want to return it make sure you keep an eye on the return window to the supplier

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Apple product, 6 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple AirPort Express (Accessory)
Over the past few weeks I noticed a couple of dead wi-fi spots in my back garden, and now the summer is here (allegedly) and we sit out in those spots I thought I would try and extend the range of my existing Apple Time Capsule wi-fi network, so I had no hesitation in getting am Airport Express from Amazon

The Airport Express dully arrived and being a apple user I just unpacked it and plugged it in as I am used to Apple stuff just working out of the box, and it did, as soon as it went through its own set up routine, by this I mean the light on the device first flashed Amber, the went solid Amber an finally Solid Green, this green light told me it had set itself up internally,

I had Airport utility running on my Mac it immediately recognised the new device and offered to add it to my existing network to extend it, I accepted that and it went off and set it up it took about 2 minutes, and it worked perfectly.I went out side and the dead spots were now showing a solid signal

I mounted the Airport Express on a Wall in my office overlooking the garden using a "out of sight bracket " purchased with the Apple Airport Express from Amazon, I have posted a picture to show how I fixed it, like all Apple stuff it is real quality and so easy to set up

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a Good Drill, 22 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Over the years I have had many power drill almost all were the cordless type, but of late I have found on some jobs the cordless drill would not be up the the task, so I decided to invest in a mains version,

I didn't want to spend to much as I didn't see me using the drill to often so I bought on price, the Draper had got many good reviews so I went for that and I am so pleased I did, this is not a budget drill it is a hard working top end tool,

I have ripped into brick work, drilled into concrete without any problems, jobs that would have been a chore were a pleasure using this drill, I thoroughly recommend it as after 40 years using power tool I can confidently say this drill is the business
