1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing doesn't come close!, 23 July 2016

Having bought several IVSO cases before they are my usual go to company but this tat is far short of what I was expecting - it isn't even a IVSO case! Everything about it is nasty and don't get me started on the app for the screen - avoid like the plague!

The future of the wallet could be here, if only they managed to come up with something better than the added on plastic piece for notes.

Genius design for card storage but for notes it needs a lot more looking at, clearly tacked on after somebody pointed out the lack of note storage.....

4.0 out of 5 stars 1 step forward 1 step backwards, 20 July 2016
On the plus side the new strips are A LOT brighter than the older model but there's some absolutely stupid design issues.

First off, the lead off the lights to the controller box is ridiculously short so may lead to problems when trying to fit and install the lights,
Phillips have done a good job in having a separate power brick to the lead from the controller which now has a jack plug to connect to the psu which does help running the cables once you have managed to locate the controller somewhere but it is far from ideal and I found the older lights easier to install.

Next up is the backing protection tape on the lights, previously the pull off tape was all one length which made installation easy, pull it off as you run the lights, now the tape is in 3 inch sections which is a nightmare when working in tight locations like up against a kitchen kickboard.

Next up is yes you can extend but the lights dim the more you add so bare thst in mind and yoy have to wonder why if Phillips can supply additional 1m strips why couldn't they have just made all the strips in 1 metre or even half metre lengths and made it simpler for purchasers to modify and fit lights in smaller sections without resorting to 3rd party connections and cables?

Love my Hue lamps but I hate the way Phillips go about making the strip lights.

Oh and the new app to control them needs a lot of work and is confusing if you're used to the original one too....

Hilarious game for dinner parties is you and your guests are not the sensitive type of souls. Never laughed so hard with a game played amongst friends as you try and outdo the next one to be the sickest puppy in the crowd!

5.0 out of 5 stars Got a bread machine? You need one one of these!, 15 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Solves both problems of how to store and how to cut home made loaf's. The knife guide is a godsend if you don't want to keep cutting thick wedges to eat and the plastic case helps keep the bread fresh as possible as it slides together as tne loaf gets smaller.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great, 15 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sound quality is great for pillow speakers however they have a glaring design issue, the speakers and volume controls are in a chain so the stereo effect can be the wrong way round depending on which side of the bed you sleep as it is impossible to set them up for left or right exit of the pillowcase. A simple left/right swap switch on the volume controller could have sorted this issue but there isn't one so they are either spot on or hopeless.

Does the job however its not a very good fit, the usb connection is stuck out too much so the phone doesn't sit right in the base. Not problem changing spare batteries tho.

Nicely built little unit however it has no spdif output connection but an optical headphone socket instead! Totally not as described in the description and no adapter is included in the box, also takes an age to arrive from china so if you're in a rush for something then look elsewhere....
