Are You Dave Gorman?
Are You Dave Gorman?
by Danny Wallace
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Had me laughing out loud the whole way through!, 13 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Are You Dave Gorman? (Paperback)
Absolutely hilarious book. I would definitely recommend a read. Advice for anyone out there who discovered Dave through his Modern Life is Good-ish series on Dave (Dave on Dave?!?! It boggles the mind!) like myself: buy this book. I read his parts imagining his voice throughout, and could not stop laughing. As comedians go, Dave Gorman has a very different style. It is a very unique type of humour, and I'm not a hundred percent sure what genre this book would even be classified as. However, if something has you laughing out loud, even when you're trying your hardest to be quiet when reading inconspicuously at work, then I think it's done it's job. Travelling the globe to find Dave Gormen (yes, that is the correct plural form apparently) is a unique idea that Dave and Danny bring to life and create comedy gold with, whether you are a Dave Gorman or not!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money!, 13 Dec. 2015
I was very wary buying this as all the reviews were Vine reviews, meaning the reviewers were getting them free. Of course this shouldn't affect their review, but a part of me was still apprehensive. However, with Amazon's offer of 2 for £150 and my need for 2 relatively simple multi room speakers, this looked like the best option against other multi room speakers coming in at almost double the price for two!

Now don't get me wrong, they do not sound quite as good as either the bose sound touch 10 or the sonos play 1 which they will inevitably be compared to - however they come surprisingly close! It may take a bit of messing with the EQ settings on your playback device, but the sound you can get is brilliant. They fill a room with sound pretty easily and in smaller houses they'll do for the whole floor. Put two together in the same room and you have yourself a party. Audiophiles may opt for something of a higher calibre, but for this price range, there is nothing better in the multi room speaker department.

The speakers look fantastic and seem to be well made, although cannot comment on longevity yet. Very easy to setup, and simple to operate. Unlike other multi room devices, there is no specific app needed so you don't constantly need your phone, and playback is not limited to only what the app allows. For example, youtube works through the speakers, although there is a 3 second delay between the device and the speakers, so videos are a no go. I have also noticed the bluetooth connection can be a bit iffy, with the sound stuttering and cutting out intermittently if you take the playback device into another room. This is probably more an issue with bluetooth in general, as opposed to the speakers.

Overall I'm very happy, and they are more than worth the money. Theoretically, the much pricier BM50B should also be able to link with these and I'm very tempted to add one to my collection now, although wary again as it seems to be constantly out of stock and there are no reviews on Amazon yet, not even Vine reviews! If I do get my hands on one I shall edit this review to let you know how well it works with the BM5's; given that they're designed to be all working together via Izzylink, this is a pretty important aspect!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ceramic slightly thin, otherwise great., 3 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good mug, average size. 10oz (Just under 300ml) is when filled right up to rim. Saw this on another site at a ridiculously expensive price, especially once delivery was factored in, and the fact that you had to pay extra to have the design on both sides! This is a much better price. The ceramic is slightly thinner than some mugs around, but hopefully it will last with careful use. Overall, would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality!, 31 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Marvel Mug Daredevil (Toy)
Excellent mug, very good quality, thick ceramic, not like some mugs around. The artwork on the side is from a cover by Alex Maleev from his stint with Brian Michael Bendis on what has to be one of the best comic series in history. It is printed well on the mug, hopefully will not wear off like some designs on cheap mugs. Average size, filled right to the rim is 10oz, or just under 300ml. The "DD" logo on the inside is a nice touch as well. Overall I am very pleased and would recommend this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good at first but doesn't last long, especially for the price., 28 Sept. 2014
Disappointed. Seemed like a decent, but expensive case, and I had thought paying £20 meant it would last for years, especially because it comes with a "lifetime guarantee". Worked well at first but after a few months the elastic strap broke and the phone was pretty much impossible to get out. Pretty annoyed I'll have to shell out for another case now, especially considering I've had much cheaper cases that have lasted longer. So much for "lifetime guarantee"...

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect, 11 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"buy cheap buy twice" is apt when talking about iphone 5 cables longer than the standard 0.9m. Tried multiple cheaper versions and none of them lasted very long. Yes, this belkin one is pretty expensive but at the end of the day you definitely get what you pay for. Very sturdy wire, very quick charging, whether from a laptop of from the mains. I have the 2m cable which is the perfect length for me. Also, I do have a case on my phone, and it does have just a small gap on the bottom for a charger to fit but actually, the belkin cable fits just fine. Yes it is slightly bigger than the apple one, but this hasn't caused a problem at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 11 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely brilliant little plug, especially for the price. I'm really surprised this hasn't got more good ratings, it is great. Red light to tell you it's working and works exactly as you'd expect. Great for charging my iPhone and iPod and charges both of them quicker than the original apple usb mains charger! Had one of these before and it lasted for well over a year before i lost it, hopefully this one will do even better.

Battery--World Orange Rim Clear PC +TPU Ultra Thin Case Cover for iPhone 5 5G with Screen Protectors

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great case, looks fabulous and very slim. Not as rigid as other cases but still provides enough protection. Easy to get on and a good fit. My only issue was that it had a made in china sticker on the inside of the case, which when removed left a bit of glue that had to be washed off. Also, just be aware that any scratch to the case does show up very distinctly as the case is clear, although this would happen with any clear case so cannot fault this one. Haven't used the screen protectors so cannot comment on those but the case itself is brilliant. Amazing price as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars 1 metre long, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great quality cable so far, had for about 3 weeks as a replacement and use it almost every day. Feels very solid. For those wondering it is 1 metre long. The description doesn't actually mention that. Poor delivery: selected "next-day delivery" as needed asap but came in three days. However, the product itself is good and I know this is just a product review, so five stars overall.
