Black Enamel Metal Long Handled Dustpan and Brush, Lobby Dustpan
Black Enamel Metal Long Handled Dustpan and Brush, Lobby Dustpan

1.0 out of 5 stars The brush itself is not good quality. The metal pan is robust enough, 16 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The description of "long handled" is misleading, the brush handle is very short, much the same size such as the cheap plastic ones you would buy from a supermarket. The brush itself is not good quality.

The metal pan is robust enough, but is cumbersome to use and not easily stored.
If you're expecting a dustpan and brush similar to the ones you would see, being used in a hotel or fast food outlet (a lobby brush) this not for you.
It's basic and cheap looking, certainly not "long".
The description is very misleading, and my purchase was very disappointing to say the least.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking for your first Sound-bar, this is a must!, 1 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The KitSound Ovation Soundbar.

The first thing you notice when opening the box, apart from the sound-bar itself is the impressive amount of "must have" extra's.
I've lost count of the times I have purchased something like a television or a PVR, only to find that I have to go out and purchase an HDMI lead or similar, it's both frustrating and annoying.

Not so here: The Ovation comes complete with every cable you need to connect it to your chosen device, it even comes with a wall bracket.
I seriously doubt that you'll find a better bundle with any similar product, even those with a higher specification.

Another one of my pet hates is opening a box only to find the instructions are difficult to understand, or worse still are printed so small you'd be forgiven to think that and additional magnifying lass should have been included!
The Ovation's instruction booklet is both easy to read and understand, giving you the right information you need.

So, with all the connection types available, I chose to use the Bluetooth option, as the sound-bar was going to be connected to an audio only device.

Set up was a dawdle, after plugging in the sound-bar I selected Bluetooth using the supplied remote, (which in itself is clear and easy to use) which immediately began flashing to show it was available. My device searched for, found, and paired within seconds. Impressive.

I purchased The Ovation for just under £100, this is well below the asking price for similar products, and the actual sound itself is well worth the money. It has a deep and rich bass and clear mid-tones, and with 60 watts of output, you really can't go wrong.

My favourite feature of The Ovation is that it has no need for a sub woofer, as noted the bass is surprisingly good.
Hang up the bracket, or simply lie it down on a pre built shelf and you're good to go.
All the positives are there, it's a very stylish sound-bar, with great sound, and you have multiple choices of connection.
The only niggle I have is with the optical cable, a slightly firmer fit would have been better.

All in all, it gets five stars from me, you'll be hard pushed to get something as good as this for the price, a must have if you are buying your first sound-bar.
