5.0 out of 5 stars A very decent lighting product., 13 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered two of these for our large, gloomy kitchen, complete with the brighter, "warm white" LED lamp option, and they arrived promptly and fairly well packed.
They are quite light in weight (handy when installing overhead, especially if you don't have especially solid fixing-points), but are an all-metal structure, so should also be fairly robust.
Provided you've fitted light fittings before, they are fairly simple to wire-up and fix in place, and come complete with all of the fittings you should require, plus straightforward instructions.
Appearance is pretty inconspicuous in their chromed form and neutral enough for most kitchen styles.
Ours have been in place a little over a month and work very well, the light output and flexibility is excellent for all purposes and I feel the premium for LEDs was well worthwhile. I hope their longevity will match expectation.
There are surprisingly few spotlight fittings with more than 3-ways out there currently, so these are pretty much a default choice if you need more than 3 lamps. Fortunately, it's a decent product and fair value. I would certainly purchase again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor - but not Very Poor like a lot of the competition, 11 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While these are an improvement on a similar, cheaper product from another seller, they are in themselves inadequate. The Cyan and Magenta cartridges incontinently drool waste toner onto random prints, and colour rendering - despite every adjustment - is second rate. They're just not cheap enough to be this poor. I guess this is what most of us in small business have to endure so long as the printer manufacturers themselves remain so extortionately greedy in their pricing. Delivery wasn't exactly speedy either. Packaging's pretty good though...


Doctor Syn: A Smuggler Tale of the Romney Marsh

3.0 out of 5 stars Mildly deranged writer births schizoid parson! Joy and confusion reign., 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well that has to be one of the oddest reading experiences I've ever had. I've read contrivedly strange books of many kinds, books whose protagonists you quickly loathe, experiments in fiction, the downloadings of damaged minds and chemically-induced babblings after their fashion...

This is none of those. What it is is one of the most badly-written books I've ever read, and yet I loved it. Its fundamental weakness is a "plot" bordering upon the random. It is at once both chaotic and linear. No character ever really develops, and the only plot twists seem to be the result of inexplicable inconsistency.

It is a book *around* Dr Syn, but not really about him. Frankly, it's as daft as a brush, it should have been a rough first draft, not a finished piece!

I half knew what to expect - something of a "ripping yarn", brain-in-neutral stuff - and doubly anachronistic. All good, it has its place, soothing my weary mind. But I have never read anything quite so ill-fleshed - it's the skeleton of a book, and not a complete one at that . . . One of those dinosaurs known only by a few occipitals, some vertebrae, a smattering of long-bones...

Strange, my head is still full of it a day on - the wonderment, the potential, the fact that somehow it's still engaging and even at times exciting. Yet it's so damnably frustrating - it could have been a Great in its field if only the author could have plotted it a deal more thoroughly, and then consigned the MS to the back of a drawer for a few months, and only *then* finished the job...

Well, that probably reads more negatively than I intend. It's not a *good* book, but it surely is a strangely likeable and compelling one.

I've ordered the rest of the series - I wonder if Mr. Thorndyke ever mastered his schizoid parson . . . ?

5.0 out of 5 stars Stand-out album, 28 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Drone Logic [VINYL] (Vinyl)
I was a latecomer to this, but it's likely to be my top music purchase in 2014. Avery has a knack of creating something that is both unique yet of a quality that lulls you into thinking it somehow familiar. Production values are terrific, no over-compression for the benefit of radio play, and the vinyl issue is the one to have if you have the replay equipment (and if you don't: drop me a line for help and advice!). More Of This Sort Of A Thing!

Fabulous recording too. Shows how good Red Book CD can be when well recorded. How had I missed this composer previously? Beyond that, music's too subjective to say much more that's worthwhile or meaningful to another.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks good, works well., 28 Jun. 2014
Solid, handsome and functional, my only small gripe is the small diameter and polished finish of the handle makes it a trifle hard to grip with wet hands, but the alternative is having something ugly but more ergonomic cluttering our nice new bathrooms, so all good!

5.0 out of 5 stars A quality watch with a "Marmite" look - expectations exceeded., 28 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Personally I love how it looks, and am wearing it as I type.

Every aspect of the watch and its packaging is of a higher quality than I anticipated: this is a lot watch for peanuts. It's large, but not comically so, and detailing is superb, with clarity and individuality both standing out. In the conservative world of mens watches, this is a real breath of fresh air all round. Looks great and tells the time: job done!

My sole very minor gripe is with the vendor using an inaccurate pic - the hands are not as pictured, lacking the arrow-like "notches", but that is trivial, and their rapid delivery was praiseworthy.

Hopefully reliability will hold-up longer-term, but I'll report back if it doesn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Minimalist packaging - great product., 8 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
***UPDATE*** 30/06/2014: While this black cartridge still works fine, the other colours purchased from the same supplier are frankly terrible - weak, patchy, and irregular colours. Avoid like the plague. I discovered this too late to send 'em back.

Just replaced the manufacturer cartridge in our Canon i-Sensys MF8380Cdw with one of these - perfect fit, perfect functionality, completely bargain price. I am very surprised to find that contrast and crispness of prints is a little better too.

Far too early to assess longevity, but I'll update at some point if all remains good.

The only minor deviation was the packaging was no more than some fancy bubble-wrap, and there were no instructions, but it's not rocket science to fit, and I can re-use the packaging.

Service from the supplier was top notch - the cartridges actually arrived a couple of days *earlier* than the ETA - top work!
