Good quality. Very stiff on first use but I'm guessing it supposed to be that way to give a good cut, which it does.

Unusual but one of those personal preference tastes. I really liked the taste, my partner (who I bought it for) didnt. Worked out well for me anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, great company., 8 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A difficult product to find due to the unusual sized connectors Korg used for a power socket. This works great by supplying my 4 Volcas with power to get around hijacking a small bedroom to hold all the batteries they use. The 5 spliiter leads are well made and connect through another connector to the lead coming from the power supply. This is extremely handy I found for feeding at the back of tables etc. It also means you could plug them into the USB adaptor they sell to replace the PSU end which also works great.
When I first powered by Volcas by mains power, I had an unusual nasty background noise finding it's way to the mixer. This wasn't anything at all to do with the splitter I found and was easily solved by using some "ground line isolators".
I must also thank the company for excellent help, interest and support in helping me sort this problem out which is always a pitfall of having lots of boxes and wires in one place I suppose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat box of tricks., 8 Feb. 2016
Already established as another lovely Volca from Korg. Having bought the other 3 this has it's place as a clean sample player. The samples arn't CD quality when you look at the specs but the ear really doesn't notice and as you can speed up or slow down the sample as one of the parameters, you may be after that low quality gritty feel occasionally anyway. This brings me onto my only niggly thing. It's an absolute pain in the neck to change the pitch of indiviual samples in a step sequence, if you wanted a short melody for instance out of the one of the samples. It can be done (forget doing this by midi, not easy) but it means you need to be a contortionist of the fingers, pressing many buttons at once. If Korg would have put an ounce of thought into this it would have been perfect for me. However, it doesn't detract from what I use for it for most of the time which is just triggering samples with loads of parameters you can change to keep them interesting. I have also simply loaded my own as well, with little workarounds like reducing the sample rate to cram really long samples in there. A really neat box of tricks that puts a big smile on your face!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, even greater price., 8 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks great and well made. It also feels like a quality item which for this kind of money is amazing.. It did have a big 7" sticker on the bag it came in so I was worried I had the wrong size although the panels did measure 8 3/4 inches. Its a snug fit and I like it.
For those looking for perfection.. .at this price, really?!?! The panels do measure slightly short of the Hudl so it does go beyond the panel and cover the seams leading to a slight bulging at the edge. The opposite is true at the top leaving a 1.5cm space between the Hudl and the top seam. Having had Neoprene before though I have found it gives like a good pair of shoes after a while. Very happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Portable Ghetto Blaster., 31 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow!! I wasn't expecting that. This thing is tiny yet it sounds like a full blown ghetto blaster! I could quote the watts & frequency response etc but the true test is how it sounds & there's plenty of bass from this with a crisp clear sound across the range and it can be very loud. The Bluetooth connection works well with plenty of range and you can even press a button a take a phone call with it's built in mic. That does work but not brilliantly in my one & only test. The unit has a quality weighty feel to it and is fairly simple to use. You can change tracks with it & also trigger the camera shutter on an Apple device. The option to put in an SD card and play songs is a great addition if you have no phone or anything nearby but remember, no screen on this so not many options for selecting songs on it. The only niggley thing is you hold down the track select to alter the volume level on the unit which causes sudden jumps to loud or no volume at all but this is very minor as once you have set it you can then alter it on your phone etc. The main reason you buy it though is for sound reproduction and this is what it excels at without question even bordering on witchcraft for something so small. Very, very pleased.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Acid & Super Fire with Super anti-seismic protection.!, 31 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You have to be worried when your new USB Charger from the China promises "Super Acid, Super Fire." Mind you I also get "Super anti-seismic strong" protection from earthquakes? and a grossly disfigured thumb.(See pic). So far no blazing infernos to report and all seems good. I did my usual 'tat' test with imports from China & it looks to be good quality. I've not checked the rated outputs but my tech that needs 2 amps isn't complaining. The mains plug also has the required insulation on the pins and are also the correct length. (This sometimes isn't the case). I've decided to live in hope & not open it up to check for any deathtraps as so far it seems to do the job very well.

Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 - UK layout
Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 - UK layout

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice portable keyboard., 13 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works very well and at some distance from the PC. The keys have a quality feel to them and has no lag with instant connection as soon as the dongle is plugged in. The keypad is also very responsive and for a left click you can either tap the pad, the button underneath and even another button located on the top left of the keyboard which is very handy, especially if your holding it while standing. The function keys default to their custom functions such as volume, search etc.. and you hold down FN to get the the traditional F1, F2, F3 etc. I didn't like this at first but find you do use the custom keys more. It's nice and light and the only thing I don't like is how you store the fob in the battery compartment cover which isn't the easiest thing to remove and feels like something could snap after removing that too many times, the only small letdown if you would use this on an otherwise excellent keyboard. Great purchase I thought.
