4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, progressively harder..., 12 Sept. 2015

This review is from: WordBrain (App)
As with most puzzles, easy first levels, but they turn into real head scratches after a time. Very challenging!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleek & good looking.. just the sort I like to hang with !!, 29 July 2015

Superb quality, well crafted and looks great!! As mentioned in other reviews, there is a slight warp that meant the rack initially did not lie level on a flat surface, but a few gentle tweaks in the opposite direction sorts it out.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Mercedes product with a Skoda engine management system..., 17 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, the product itself is fantastic!! Two stars were dropped because of the appalling customer service that refuses to honour the free games statement plastered all over the packaging. The rather weak excuse of 'the promotion has expired' despite there being no mention of an expiry date when purchasing or receiving the unit is all this arrogant company has to say. A company worth it's salt would simply offer the Android APK of the MOGA COMPATIBLE game, since this is what purchasers buy the damn thing for !! Non MOGA owners wouldn't bother to download this customised version....

Having vented my obvious ire, the unit itself works impeccably, but with the MOGA Universal Driver available on PlayStore, the MOGA Pivot app is a sorry excuse for a custom controller driver, providing an 'Applesque' narrow 'buy the Apps AGAIN' to work with our controller option. The MOGA Universal Driver (written by ObsidianX, an independent open source developer from XDA) offers compatibility with virtually ANY game including emulators, offers button mapping and reloadable (and shareable (sic)) XML profiles for each game/emulator. Fabulous!!

It's a pity that MOGA chose to supply a Mercedes product with a Skoda engine management system. All hail ObsidianX who replaced this with a Rolls Royce user configurable system. Great product, poorly implented and supported.

3.0 out of 5 stars Common sense is all you need to put this baby together....., 22 May 2015
... as long as it's accompanied by a degree in 'Damn, is this really how this goes together??'. I had been warned by previous reviewers. The box contains no instructions. As such, I won't repeat Mike Renshaw's excellent review, but point out a few pertinent points that I feel lets down an otherwise quite tidy piece of kit.

1. It's overpriced. ( I bought direct from the supplier and got it £10 cheaper... go figure....)
2. It IS an absolute PIG to install your precious Raspi2 inside... some heart stopping moments...
3. The small USB jumper cables are just too stiff and too fat to fit comfortably together putting a little strain on my aforementioned precious.
4. The Pi is secured with small COUNTERSINK screws... on a PCB?
5. The supplied cable ties to secure the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) only have a single mount per end to secure to... double mounts per end would be better.
6. For the price I would really have expected a SATA interface built in, a complete USB drive is an expensive addition.
7. The remote control is a bimbo accessory... air head pretty, but effectively useless (requies Linux knowledge). IT SHOULD WORK STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX!!! (A £5 PC remote bought on the bay that starts with a 'e' works perfectly!!)

So this pretty little box doesn't cut down on the amount of wires needed, requires a full on USB HDD, doesn't allow you to easily transfer data onto that HDD, requires nerves of steel to install your precious and doesn't do anything a bare RasPi can't. So I paid £40 for an on/off switch and a neon light. Priceless....

(hey... come 'ere... if you Berryboot your SD card with a Linux OS, you can copy ALL kinds of stuff onto your internal hard drive, fire up KODI and away you go....)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to look at, sturdy, practical & easily assembled... from a company that really cares...., 6 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My stand arrived quickly and was compactly packaged in a very well protected box. Very easily assembled, is sturdy and looks wonderful. Easily able to handle our 47 inch TV, Xbox and Blu Ray player neatly stored together as they were designed to be.

I must mention AV Sales, who after a mishap (on my part) with the spacers, stepped in to help without issue. I would recommend this stand particularly for it's build quality, but believe both AV Sales products and aftercare Customer Service are among the very best I have encountered. Happy? No... extremely happy!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Champagne in a Coca Cola bottle..., 18 Sept. 2014

The pump action bottle shown in the advertisement is not what you get. This top quality product now comes in a cheap refillable 'perfume' bottle. No problem, just let me know what you're really selling before I buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great for my collection... just don't attempt to open bottles with it....., 13 Sept. 2014
Bought this item along with the stainless steel version as I'm a sucker for guitar related trinkets. This black version is half the thickness of the stainless steel though obviously stamped out from the same die. I paid £1.99 each for both versions... this black version would be better priced at 50p...

1.0 out of 5 stars Lightning lead is NOT included.... but...., 2 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is SO frustrating... a second item received WITHOUT a lightning cable. This item is NOT compatible with the latest iPads/iPods. The advertised information is MISLEADING!!!!

Update: I have tried my friend's LinkHD on his 'older' iPad with the 30pin connection. I am so impressed with it that I have decided to buy a 30pin iPad/iTouch to use with it. My original statement still stands (no lightning lead for newer iOS devices), but the product itself through the Ampkit app? Wow!!!

Update2: After some deliberation (and penny counting), I hopped over to Amazon.com and bought a Link WITH Lightning lead (Ampkit Link HD Lightning) for £94 plus £21 UK Import Duty. This unit has higher spec (96bit Sample Rate) but curiously there's no mention of it on the Peavey site other than a power supply for it. Ne'er mind, I'm as happy as a pig in the proverbial....

2.0 out of 5 stars Excess stock, luck of the draw... you pays your money, who knows what for......, 2 April 2014
You would think, looking at the advert picture, that you'd get one of each colour.... but NO... once you've paid your money you get whatever they decide to send you... in my case three purple, three white... some would call this luck of the draw... I call it getting rid of excess stock....
