5.0 out of 5 stars Smartphone headphones?, 28 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Wow
====
If you're going to get these with an Iphone be prepared to be amazed by the difference in audio quality compared with the supplied ones.

OK
===
OK Let's go. As you can imagine for they cannot be compared with top of the range headphones such as B&O PLAY by Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H7 Over-Ear Wireless Headphones - Natural
They are a franction of the price and you should expect the same sound or buid quality. That said a set of headphone still have to produce a good sound.
And for me, for day to day listening of spotify, mp3s, or watching something on the laptop or TV these are ideal.

CHEAP
======
So I was expecting these to be rather unpleasant looking and that they would produce a poor sound.
Well, well, well. The build quality is fine. And the sound is better than good. Rather good to be fair.
They make listening to music on a smartphone a real pleasure.
They have enough bass, enough mid range with the sound being both full and clear.

TEST
====
For example I listened to I Could Be Happy and the reproduction was clear and authentic.
They offer a well balanced sound with a slight emphasis on the higher end of the range. Not at all bass-ey.

COMFORT
========
They just feel very pleasant to wear. 3-4 hours and they were not too tight, not too hot, nor too loose.

NOISE ISOLATION
==============
Not really. If you're listening to something your neighbour will hear a little. Not much, but a little nonetheless.

DESIGN
======
They look fine. Not stunning. Not remarkable but for the price they're more than fine. I have some top end headphones. But for day to day I prefer cheaper ones. If I drop them, trap them in a door or do anything stupid I'm not hearbroken.
I'm the same with sunglasses. I like a nice pair but as I'm prone to dropping them I'd rather stick with the £10 range.

MIC
===
Phone calls were fine with the headphones and the remote n the cord was responsive and instant.

PROS
=====
Fine Sound Quality
Comfortable
Fold flat
Look OK

CONS
=====
The bass could be a tad better.

OVERALL
========
I like them. I'll update this if I experience any issues or problems. Hope this helps. Feel free to post any questions.

5.0 out of 5 stars polycotton, 26 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
QUALITY
=======
Quality was better than expected. And quite soft to sleep on. And neither too hot nor cold to sleep on.
I'm sure if Goldilocks was still alive she would say that this sheet is "just right."

MATERIAL
=========
For me it feels quite strong and durable. Its certainly not too thin.

WASH
=====
I didn't follow the instructions and simply put it on the bed straight away. However, it did have a softer feel once washed.

NOT FITTED
=========
It's years since I've used a non fitted sheet. This ideal for putting on a bed, but also for those people who like to do crafts.

OVERALL
========
if you need a soft sheet this is one to consider. Hope this helps.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is funny ....., 26 July 2016
This review is from: Texts From Your Ex (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
TEXTS
=====
What a strange book. The instagram page that the book is based on is hilarious, has 1.9 million followers and you can read it for ages.
In contrast, they seem to have chosen some of the worst of the texts.

SOME OF IT
==========
Some of it is funny but overall the instagram account is much funnier. (maybe because there are 1367 posts as of July 2016)
Has some funny bits which may raise a smile or two with the recipient.

I had thought 3 out of 5 stars would be fair, but a re-read pushes it to 3.5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kaspersky, 26 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the retail box version.
You don't need the latest version as you can download the latest version and use the Kaspersky key.
I've found buying the multi devices a little cheaper. (I've used two out of the three available licences and it was still cheaper)
At time of review (July 2016 - this is £16, the 3 version is £11.50)
KIS 2016 3 Devices

PROS
=====
Easy to install
Effective
Doesn't slow down my machine
Problem free

CONS
=====
none so far.

I'll update the review if I have any issues. Hope this helps.

However, this is a beautiful machine.

Speedy

CONS

Rapesco Paper Holder/Staple Remover - Assorted
Rapesco Paper Holder/Staple Remover - Assorted
Price: £9.54

2.0 out of 5 stars not for me, 26 July 2016
For me it's neither one thing or the other.
It's not that good at holding paper, and it's not that good at removing staples.

If you need a paper holder there are better options. Fellowes Booklift Copy Holder - Silver
If you need a remover there are better options too. Rapesco Safety Staple Remover - Random Black/Blue

It's a little like those items and you wonder who thought of putting them together as it doesn't work:
iPhone 6S Case,which is a Cigarette Lighter
The BeerBelly Wine Rack (Medium)

For me it's an awful invention

5.0 out of 5 stars 15.6 notebook, 26 July 2016
The Asus X540 is a rather nice notebook. For the money it's amazing. (at the time of review July 2016 - less than 300 )

This lovely little machine is not for everyone. It isn't meant for gaming enthusiasts or power users.But for the majority of user who simply need something to go online with- it's ideal.

PROS
=====
Its main strength is its sturdiness
Has sufficient horsepower
It's very slim
The screen is a.m.a.z.i.n.g.

CONS
=====
Its biggest weakness is it's a tiny but heavier than I was expecting. It's not heavy. But it's not super-light.

Target Demographic
===============
This laptop is designed for users who need to have a machine for everything - not just browsing. It is possible to play games on the machine, edit video but it main virtue is it's a lightish, all-rounder.

Design
======
A nice responsive keyboard, with a stylish look clamshell. It's both quite solid and sleek. A black lid, dull matte finish, and it is a pleasure to look at.

Weight
======
1.85 KG according to the bathroom scales. So it is portable.

Display
=====
Its screen is much better than some of its competitors. For me this is its major strength. It has bright, brilliant colours, and no reflection. Watching films is impressive. The matte screen is fantastic and the HD quality had no laggyness. (I know it's not a word but it's difficult to describe when some screens have a little lag or slowness.)
Watching films on this, whether they are streamed or downloaded, is fantastic.

Keyboard
=======
The keyboard is good. I am a little heavy when using the keyboard. The wrist rest provides solid support and there is no noticeable flex in the keyboard. The keys are comfortable to use even for prolonged periods.

Touchpad
=======
It is very responsive, and all gestures are intuitive and happen without any issues. A little larger than normal too.

Heat
====
It kept very cool.

Performance
=========
It takes about 17 seconds to boot up - and browsing, watching video, listening to music all ran comfortably. When running task that take a little more horsepower such as editing video- it dealt with it fine. A truly versatile beast.

Battery life:
=======
I got a few hours out of the machine. You'll need the charger on a long journey.

Audio
====
Normally with many laptops I end up plugging headphones in. The sound can be tin-ey. But this surprised me. A nice bass, a good range. One of the better sounding laptops I've used.

Wifi
====
works without any issues

Conclusion
========
Overall it's a machine that is very good at its job. It doesn't excel in any one area but overall it's a well designed little laptop.
One to consider if you need a 15.6 screen.
