5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 13 May 2017
This is a nice condenser microphone. Like all condenser microphones it is extremely sensitive and great for capturing both instruments and voice. However, like all condenser microphones it requires the use of a power supply, specifically 48 volt "phantom power". This is normally drawn from a mixing board or external power supply and marked P 48 or 48V.

This particular microphone is not of a studio standard, but it much better than most home microphones. The sound quality recorded is generally good across the full sound range. Like most condensing microphones the unit is extremely sensitive and picks up any ambient noise.

In terms of look the microphone has a retro look that I rather like. The gold finish on the microphone is fantastic. The stand is a mixture of plastic and metal, but at the price that seems fair and the leads are provided.

Any downsides, none that I can think of at this pricing point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bluetooth Headphones with a difference, 13 May 2017
These in ear headphones connect via Bluetooth, however unlike most Bluetooth headphones the wire is missing leaving just the ear pieces. The range is estimated to be about 10m and that seems about right. The headphones are charged via the box which contains a rechargeable battery. This is charged via a USB cable (cable but not charger provided). The manufacturer states around 2 hours listening time from each charge. I am finding that the estimate is spot on with me getting roughly 90 to a 120 minutes hours from each charge. Listening time does depend on a number of factors including the distance from the Bluetooth device and the volume used so other users may get slight different results. The earphones take approximately 30 minutes to fully charge.

These headphones use Bluetooth 4.1 This is a significant improvement, particularly for those users streaming from a 4G capable device. 4G and Bluetooth do not get along as their signals interfere, resulting in a weaker signal and shorter battery life. This was fixed between Bluetooth 4.0 and 4.1. However, if you are using an older device, don’t worry Bluetooth 4.1 is backwards compatible.

The general sound quality provided is excellent. Sound is crisp and clean, with no perceivable distortion unless you turn the volume right up to maximum. Bass is present but like many headphones of this style and price is a bit lacking. If you are looking for high levels of bass you might be better considering a big over ear pair that feature a larger speaker. The volume on the headphones is also good, I personally found about 40% is loud enough, depending on the track and type of music. The volume adjusts well in nice steady increments allowing you to easily find the correct level. At full volume the headphones are surprisingly loud.

Any downsides, just the colour scheme that might not suit everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun, 6 May 2017
This is a nice toy for younger children. It features a combination of a peg board and a Meccano style set. The set also features a peg board and a storage box for all the pieces. The age range on the box says three plus, and this is about right. I would have thought it would appeal to children between three and five, depending on their interests and development.

The quality of the set seems quite good as does the quality. However, I am not sure where you would get additional pieces should you want them.

This is a well-made and easy to use security camera / baby monitor. The camera comes with a power lead and bracket so you are able to get a basic setup immediately. You have three options in terms of viewing / recording. Direct to a micro SD card, over the internet or via wi-fi.

To run it over the internet, take the Ethernet cable and connect it to the router. This may involve a Powerlink adapter if the camera is a significant distance from the router. Alternatively you could connect it to the router via wi-fi providing the signal is strong enough and you had the required equipment.

The camera can also record directly to a micro SD card. No card is provided, but it will support up to 64GB. I have used a 32GB San Disk, and had no issues with the recording. This is certainly the easiest way to use the camera.

Third you can stream directly from the camera to a smart phone or tablet. This is relatively straightforward, and does not drain the battery as much as you would expect. However, it is streaming HD, so you need a strong connection.

Picture quality is very good, not the full HD movie experience but at 720P more than good enough to serve its purpose.

The camera also features a two way audio option allowing you to listen and respond. I found the microphone to be reasonable, not the most sensitive but OK especially if you are relatively close to it. The speaker is quite good and delivers clear audio, at least for speech.

Overall, a really good little camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Emergencies, 6 May 2017
The main component of this set is an extra-large power bank, 14000 Mah to be exact. This can be used to power the usual assortment of portable device from phones to tablets etc. However, the unit also doubles up as a jump start kit and can be used to start your car in the event of a flat battery.

The unit comes with all the required cables and is packaged in a rather good case, with a dedicated space for the battery and all the cables. This is ideal for leaving in the boot of your car for emergencies. Further as this is a lithium battery it will retain charge for an extended period, meaning you do not have to worry about recharging it all the time.

The unit also features a torch. Whilst it is slightly the wrong shape for a torch and the brightness is very average in an emergency it could be incredibly useful, and is a nice additional feature for the unit to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if a little large, 6 May 2017
This is a great three pot slow cooker. Each pot has independent controls and can be used separately form the others, or not at all if you do not need all three. I have mainly been using the item for stews, setting them going in the morning before heading out of the house and coming back to find them perfectly cooked. The meat is much more tender with this style of cooking, and I also find the juices much more flavoursome.

The unit can also be used as a food warmer if you are having a buffet, allowing you to keep items such as chilli, curries and soups warm for your guests. I have only use it once in this way, but it did a good job.

The only downside of the unit is size in terms of both unit top space when it is in use and storage space when it is not. The unit is large and does take up a significant amount of space. However, this is not surprising given the three 1.3L pots.

This is a lighting kit for indoor portrait photography. The contents of the kit are accurately described in the product description, so I will not go through them here.

In terms of value you do get an awful lot for your money, with four stands, the bulbs the four ‘heads’ and the kit bag. However, the quality is a little variable. The kit bag is very well made and I also like the stand themselves. The bulbs work well, and unless the life of them proves to be short, I will be happy with them.

The heads are a little fragile, but with careful use they will be OK I think. The backdrops are not great. They arrived folded and the quality does seem poor. However, they are a cheap item to replace and this is what I think I will do in the future.

In terms of effect the kit does the job it was intended for, allowing for much better indoor photography. The kit is not of a professional standard but for an amateur looking for occasional use it will probably do nicely.

Overall, whether this kit is right for you will depend on how much you want to spend and how much you use it. If you are a professional or happy to spend significantly more, this is probably not the kit for you. If you are on a budget and looking for something for home use it might just be the right kit for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for exercising, 29 April 2017
These in ear headphones use Bluetooth to connect the headphones rather than the traditional wired approach. The headphones are very lightweight and easy to pair with a Bluetooth device. The range is estimated to be about 10m and that seems about right, if anything perhaps a slight underestimation. The headphones are charged via a USB to micro cable (cable but not charger provided). The manufacturer estimates 6.0 hours listening time from each charge. I am finding that the estimate is more or less spot on with roughly 5-6 hours of listening per charge. Listening time does depend on a number of factors including the distance from the Bluetooth device and the volume used so other users may get slight different results. The headphones take approximately 120 minutes to fully charge.

Looks wise the headphone are simple but still quite attractive. They are also remarkably comfortable. They come with additional earbuds so you can get a good fit and the shape and design prove effective in keeping them in place, making them ideal for exercising.

These headphones use Bluetooth 4.1 This is a significant improvement, particularly for those users streaming from a 4G capable device. 4G and Bluetooth do not get along as their signals interfere, resulting in a weaker signal and shorter battery life. This was fixed between Bluetooth 4.0 and 4.1.

The volume on the headphones is also good, I personally found about 40% is loud enough, depending on the track and type of music. The volume adjusts well in nice steady increments allowing you to easily find the correct level. At full volume the headphones are fairly loud.

Overall, a lightweight product ideal for exercising. The sound quality is good, not the best on the market, but very acceptable at this pricing point.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the beach of Garden, 29 April 2017
This is a nice pop up tent for the garden or beach. It is advertised as 2-3 person, but like nearly all tent this is a bit on the generous side. I would say 1-2 unless you are talking about three children.

The tent is quick to put up and take down. It is literally a job of a few seconds to put up. Folding it away however is a bit of a dark art. As other reviews have suggested the YouTube video is the way forward. Once you have the method sorted it can also be put away in around a minute or so.

Quality wise the tent is probably a reasonable quality for the price paid. It is not as well constructed as tents designed for camping, lacking the heavy bathtub ground sheet that keeps for floor dry and the taped seams. However, for the price and what it is designed for it is okay. I suspect it would cope with a shower, but I doubt it would cope with heavy or prolonged rain.

On a positive note I really like the size and weight of the tent. It is small and easy to put in the boot when going to the beach. It is also lightweight for carrying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight but Powerful, 29 April 2017
This is lightweight hairdryer, with a bit of style. The aesthetics of the device appear to be aimed at teenagers, but other may enjoy them too.
In terms of performance the hairdryer works well. It is powerful and dries hair quickly. The diffuser does have a habit of falling off but otherwise it works well.

The coconut infused grill does give off a hint of coconut when the hairdryer heats up, and I can just about detect the odour in my hair. However, I am not sure how long the feature will last.

Build quality seems reasonable and the unit does come with a two year manufacturer guarantee.
