Price: £2.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Memorable and atmospheric, 8 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Monument Valley (App)
Short, but a beautifully designed experience and worth every penny. If you expect a few quid to give you weeks of gameplay, this isn't for you. If you want casual immersion and oooh'd and aaaah'd at the likes of "Flower", "Journey" and "The Room" like I did, you'll be happier.

This is shorter than any of those others but, for what I got out of it, still represents great value for money

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain convenience - buy a few, 8 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are little bargains to keep to hand in the office, kitchen, garage etc. 4 different heads with quick changing.

I bought some a few years ago and have replaced them as the heads became rounded off as I abused them. These newer models have a slightly more positive locking action when flipping the heads round but otherwise identical

5.0 out of 5 stars Good grip, fast organisation, 8 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheap and effective. My main concern was whether or not they would adhere to the underside of the work surface they were intended for - smooth but untreated / unsealed softwood.

I gave the surface a wipe down first and let it dry thoroughly and it seems rock solid. I have 3 mounted in a line, but at a 45 degree angle, so I can run cable along the run of the desk and then out to the edge. Effective at tidying things up

This review is from: Rustic Fleur de Lys Garden Lantern
The recipients loved it, it's well made and was well packaged.

It was smaller than I expected, but the dimensions in the advert are absolutely accurate, so that's my failing, but I'd look for something a bit larger next time. YMMV


Logitech B100 Optical Mouse - Black
Logitech B100 Optical Mouse - Black
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Reliable workhorse, but no horizontal scroll on this model, 8 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was after a B110 but those seem to be discontinued. The B110 I bought a couple of years ago is still going string, but the small pads in the underside have all come off and disappeared, so it squeaks a bit on some surfaces.

The B100 differs in not having horizontal scroll by pressing on the wheel in the appropriate direction. I won't miss his much, but *you* might, and I couldn't see it stated in the specs.

I use this on an iMac instead of the touch-sensitive mouse as right-clicking on that is a hit-and-miss affair for me, and the extra design features are just fluff as far as I'm concerned. This and it's B110 predecessor fit the bill perfectly at a disposable price

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly well-made bargain, 2 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't buy this as a bar table, but to use as a standing desk. I'll fill in the detail at a later date, but I'd have to say that for the price and service, 5 stats is well deserved

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading Image, Not a Pack, 19 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite the second image on the advert, these did not come in a pack of 3, they came as 3 loose pens in a Jiffy bag. Not an issue unless you were wrapping as a stocking filler (my case).

The pens don't look as if they've been used, so no complaints from that perspective.

Even without the misleading image, I think the usual expectation would be that they are a pack and not loose.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Performing Compact Bargain, 23 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Slightly smaller and lighter than expected, but it still stays where it's put.

Plus points:

* no blinding blue LED charging indicators. Can't tell you what a relief it is not to have yet another gadget lit up like a christmas tree. There's a single very subtle green LED on the top.

* adaptive charging rate genuinely works. Acid test was a Blackberry Q10; at 20% battery, plugged it in and it instantly quoted 8+ hrs to recharge; 10 seconds later it was 3.5 hrs; and so it continued, decreasing the overall charge time as the two devices negotiated, until settling at around 50 mins (when I got tired of checking)

* multiple devices seem to be supported with no issue; I had an iPod4 and a desktop scanner drawing power (ScanSnap S1300i that has the option of using 2xUSB connectors for power instead of external adaptor) at the same time

Minus points:

At this price it's a bit unfair to quibble, so these are more in the manner of a wish list I'd pay extra for

* Plug and cable are "captive". I'd have preferred it to be removable as a standard figure 8 socket making storage a bit more flexible. The cable is a decent length though

* a wall mounting option would be nice

Overall extremely impressed with it's compact nature and performance; so much so that I'm ordering a couple more to replace the nest of bedside cable and using it to power a speaker, LED light and phone charging in place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good isolation, increasingly uncomfortable, 15 Aug. 2014
I've really rated these and didn't have the reservations about general build quality that other reviewers have - but I'm at a desk, not in a challenging environment.

However I've recently become more fatigued wearing them, and realised it's down to the replaceable earpads slowly becoming stiffer and more uncomfortable over time. These are designed as removable, but as yet I've found no cheap UK replacements for them (haven't been looking long).

Final rating will likely vary depending on the result


Foundation Trilogy [LegacyTitleID: 490212]
Foundation Trilogy [LegacyTitleID: 490212]

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Scifi and a Radiophonic Treat, 5 May 2014
I can understand other reviewers who found the voice acting, sound effect and music weren't to their tastes, but I thought it was a brilliant period production and that it was old enough to rise above sounding dated.

The ambient sound and "musical" interludes are pure BBC Radiophonic Workshop - reminiscent of Bebe and Louis Barron's score for Forbidden Planet.

No comment on the accuracy of reproduction of the original books as I've never read them, but entertaining and thought provoking in it's own right.
