A4 Tech KL-5 Mini Slim Compact Keyboard - UK Layout
A4 Tech KL-5 Mini Slim Compact Keyboard - UK Layout
Offered by Rapid Warehouse
Price: £15.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat and compact, good layout but a bit flimsy, 15 Jun. 2017
Good, and bad for this: The Good: It's got a sensible layout and full sized keys. I really like the Home / End / PgUP / PgDn layout down the side. The key action is not the finest but is acceptable and ok for fast typing. The shortcut keys work with Linux as well as Windows (good because it's being used on a Linux Mint machine). It has a quiet action.
Downsides: It's quite flimsy and may rock on the desk, but this can be remedied by gentle bending! Mine had a wobble when it arrived but now doesn't. The are no legs at the back so it sits very flat. I would have liked to be able to tilt it. The one that arrived was silver, but I really wanted black -- not a major issue. No NumLock option.
In summary, it's not great but it's ok for the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Musically great but the recording quality shows its age, 10 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Musically superb but the recording is rather dull compared to modern technology. Bear in mind that this was recorded in 1972 and that recording technology has progressed significantly since then. Musically, no criticism from me as Marriner and the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields are outstanding. Played on a decent stereo or through quality headphones shows up the lack of bass and rather muddy treble. The Thomas Tallis fantasia is particularly good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nearly very good, 25 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sound quality is excellent and there is a couple of excellent tracks, the title track being one of them. However, the album is rather one-dimensional and there is little differentiation between the tracks. Paul Buchanan's vocals are (in my opinion) somewhat limited and therefore this album only gets three stars. Shame because it's nearly very good.

Fitted and worked with no problems. Replaced a very dead Garmin Nuvi 355 SatNav battery. Too early to comment about longevity but holds a charge ok so far.

Did the job for the odd Japanese specification screws that I needed it for. The plastic "spring" took is rather flimsy.

A generally interesting read but I felt that more detail would have been nice. More information on locomotives and stock would have been nice.

Neat and easy to use. Simple set up with android phone. Simple charging and seem to last a decent amount of time on a charge. Useful if you are exercising in the gym as you can leave your phone in your pocket nearby.


Turn Killer (Coronet Books)
Turn Killer (Coronet Books)
by Brian Lecomber
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Rivetting read, 16 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A classic book of the flying genre. Written about a time long past in the days when there were still "flying circuses" doing dangerous displays in old aircraft with minimal regard for safety. This is a cross between Biggles and Dick Francis with the flying of WE Johns and the crime aspects of Dick Francis. Thoroughly enjoyable if you enjoy flying books.
