Great little speaker, beautiful design and packaging. Excellent sound from a very small cube. Nice price too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not easy to get it to stand up, 7 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The case is well made and an attractive colour, although it is thicker and bulkier than I expected.The 'stand' facility does not really work for my Fire 7: without a lot of pushing and folding, the thing topples backwards. Maybe that will improve with use. The stylus holder is a nice addition.

2.0 out of 5 stars Died after four weeks - too late for exchange, 19 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have owned 3 of these radios. Two worked for 3-4 years until the aerial broke: a common weakness in these old-fashioned designs. However, I bought another one, thinking that it would last about the same time, possibly longer. It went dead after 4 weeks and did not recover. I find that I cannot return it for exchange. Oh well... I'll go for a Sony radio instead!

4.0 out of 5 stars It is a good book - well made and just the right size ..., 9 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a good book - well made and just the right size for the Saturday/Sunday papers. I fitted one to our previous house, which gave good service for 10+ years. We moved and I ordered this new one for our new house. The only drawback is that it is jolly difficult to access the four fixing screws. It needs a short-handled screwdriver to fit in the space between the screw head and the facing inner surface of the box. It's possible to do, but very fiddly.
However, it is now in place and I (and the newspaper delivery boy/girl) are very happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Works For Me, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tried all sorts of masks; none has been as effective as this. Comfortable to wear, a good shape and soft to the touch, I have found it a great help while sleeping. The Velco fastening is big enough for ease of use and does not create a hard lump while resting the head on the pillow. There is some reduction in external noise but I generally use the mask in combination with ear plugs.

4.0 out of 5 stars It seems to work, but it's early days, 12 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I spent a long time researching strimmers. The Which? reports suggested brands and models other than this one, but it did appear in the Best Buy list. All strimmers seem to suffer from problems with line feed, and every one that I have owned in the past has failed early in its life. It was clear that I should not buy a twin feed machine, since these are guaranteed to jam. I didn't want top spend a fortune on a machine. So, the 'old faithful' B&D came out tops in the research.
I have used it only twice and it has performed well. I think that the key to these things is to follow the manufacturer's advice about cutting by small degrees, rather than trying to attack long grass and weeds in one sweep; and to avoid hard obstacles. I'll probably be proved wrong, come the spring.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing after 'The Kite Runner' and 'A Thousand Splendid Suns', 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
His first two books were brilliant, beautifully written and helped me to appreciate the lives of ordinary Afghans before the the appalling decades of war that the country has suffered. This third book seems to me to be the product of a publisher's contract that demands Hosseini produces books to order. It is too obviously contrived, with a thin plot and laboured characters. The timeline flips from past to present far too frequently and is difficult to follow (maybe that's because I read it as a Kindle - the paper version might be easier).
It was a real disappointment for me, since I was deeply moved by his first two books. However, I will buy his next one. Please take more time over it and avoid the pressures of writing for a market and over-demanding contracts!

2.0 out of 5 stars 'Tinny' overall sound, 22 Sept. 2011
The blurb suggested that these earphones have exceptional performance in the bass frequencies. That may be, but the overall sound is much more 'tinny' than I had expected. I have other in-ear types that have better sound quality. However, they stay in the ear, which is why I bought them. When you're on the last mile of a run, you're not really thinking about the finer points of musical quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Boy Loved It!, 3 July 2011
A gift for my grandson on his first birthday. He absolutely loved it. A great product, well-made and at a very attractive price. We considered other trikes but this has the great advantage of being easily collapsible so it doesn't take up more precious space in the house and it is easy to take in the car. I'd recommend it to anyone.
