1.0 out of 5 stars This is a counterfeit product from China. DO NOT ..., 11 July 2017
This is a counterfeit product from China. DO NOT BUY.
If you want to buy an iRig, make sure it is made by the genuine manufacturer, IK Multimedia.
If you buy this one, you are giving your money to crooks

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing sound, 29 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Ocean Verb is a well built pedal but it sounds terrible. The spring reverb is lousy, it doesn't even boing at high settings like a real spring reverb would. The shimmer setting has a high frequency whistle sound which clashes with your own guitar's sound. Disappointing- I sent it back and got a refund

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written and interesting but feels like half a book!, 5 Feb. 2017
An excellent and well written book on the life and travels of Marconi. It covers both his personal, family and business life.
However it feels like half a book because it completely glosses over the technology side. It talks vaguely about the coherer or spark generators but we don't learn anything about how they were built, how they worked or how they were developed. There are no diagrams, proper photos of his gear or anything about electrical or radio theory. The man spent his whole life developing and building the technology but we learn very little about it, other than the most superficial facts.

So by the end of the book the reader is much more knowledgeable about his family life, romances, business partners, travels and investments but we are still none the wiser about the actual technology, which is a major disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film but not full 4K transfer, 29 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Totally superb film. Deserves multiple viewings BUT the purported 4K/UHD version I bought is actually quite grainy and not the crisp clean transfer I would have expected. It seems little better than the blu-ray version I already own. I'm viewing it on a Panasonic 4k with a new Panasonic 4K player so I know what I should be seeing-and this ain't!

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to install, but sensor has narrow range, 15 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to install and setup. Nice strong and bright light coverage.

I installed this to use as a security light along the side of my house. I expected the light to come on when someone is a few feet away from it, but in fact the light only triggers when you are almost underneath it, which is not much use when you are walking down a dark path. I am going to try angling it a few degrees to see if the sensor detects a wider area. Otherwise I might need to get a second unit for better coverage.

So:
PROs: easy to install, easy to setup, very bright light
CONs: Narrow range of sensor which defeats purpose of being a security light

5.0 out of 5 stars Well built, compact size and comfortable, 6 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I received this chair yesterday and it took about 25 mins to assemble. The IKEA style instruction leaflet looks daunting but actually it was pretty straightforward to put together.

It seems solid and comfortable. Hopefully it will last longer than some of the 'heavy duty' style chairs I have owned previously - that invariably start falling to pieces after 6 months.

So, so far I am very pleased with it. Despite being called an 'Office Hippo' it is actually rather smaller than I expected. However that doesn't reduce the comfort. The only downside is that it keeps wandering off to water holes to wallow in the mud. And small birds keep landing on the back to remove ticks and other insects. :-)

1.0 out of 5 stars Not an easy read. Stick to the TV series!, 12 Sept. 2016
Started to read this book after watching the TV series (which was great).
The dense writing style makes this book a difficult read. There seems to be dozens of characters being introduced all the time, leaving you baffled about who is who. The author insists in using french phrases (or other languages) without any explanation of what they mean.
I gave up after chapter 3, simply because I lost track of the multiple characters and locations.
A shame, as I was really looking forward to this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended purchase - but beware UK import duty charge, 27 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent turntable mat. It looks great on my new Pro-Ject Acrylic turntable.
I prefer to use it with the suede side upwards. I found if I use it with the smooth side upwards my albums tended to stick to it (maybe because of the recent hot weather in the UK).
Note that as it is being shipped from the USA, you may find you have to pay an unexpected customs charge from the UK Customs and Excise people. It cost me almost an extra £30 on top of the price because of this. But this is not the sellers fault!
Highly recommended purchase

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 4K monitor - but watch out for dead insects, 20 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic 4K monitor.

+ Fast response, great colours, easy to use.

- Switched it on this morning and found a Thunderfly (Thrips) had got into the screen and had died exactly in the centre. Doesn't seem to be any way to open the screen to remove it. This implies that the front of the screen is not fully sealed, otherwise how could an insect crawl into it!
