1.0 out of 5 stars Ok for a Doll's house, 2 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought this and returned it. Upon receiving the box it was surprisingly light considering all it was said to contain. On lifting the products out the box each item was so light that they were clearly coated with rather than made of the materials one would expect. We showed the stuff to our plumber who laughed and called it 'cheap cr*p' and said he would never dream of fitting something so poor. The firm inspected the retured goods and considered them to be OK. They would not refund the £16 postage. Save yourself the bother and avoid this product: it will prove a lot more expensive that getting proper stuff the first time round.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap is OK only if they work, 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These feel cheap. They managed three charges before one of the units stopped charging altogether. I had them for 5 weeks. The seller cannot be contacted directly through Amazon (I missed the return deadline by 4 days).

When they worked they were fine though they were a poor fit for my ears, though they are made for ears in general and not my ears in particular, so that's fair enough. I do wonder however who has ears that these would comfortably hook around.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cannot Pixma, 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has been nothing but hassle. Getting it set up was surprisingly difficult. With a couple of the family laptops it was torture. The link kept falling and in the end it turned into a photocopier as we couldn't get the scans or send the print orders.

Printers are clearly something that manufacturers struggle to get right. This worked very nicely during the brief occasions when it did actually work. Now to face the customer care experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent Sporran filler!, 6 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fine body of work. Some is written in phonetic Scottish, like Trainspotting, which adds to the whole immersion thang. An excellent loo book: easy to pick up and read something to tickle your diaphragm. Considering this setting, it also has the advantage of a wipeable plastic cover and absorbant pages. The author appears to have thought of everything. Perhaps he will now change his name to Cameron McSucceed. Oh dear...sorry!

5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding, 4 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best products I have ever purchased. To date I have bought one for several family members. In turn others have bought them. Once people have heard the sound, felt the build quality and seen the superbly thought out features they buy almost straight away. I stick mine in an overnight bag and it allows me bring vibes with me everywhere. Mine is now 2 years old and going strong.

The battery life is very good, with a different colour light to show when fully charged. The connector is fairly ubiquitous and the sound is breath-taking given the size and cost. Amazon, as ever, cannot be beaten on their customer care, delivery, price etc.

Top banana!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Every cloud has a silver lining, 16 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Show Me Your Tears (Audio CD)
Charles wrote this after one of his divorces and the emotion comes through well, as well as some dark humour. Thank goodness for emotional pain; without it we would be deprived of great art. There are a few excellent songs and a few dogs as usual for one of his albums. When he writes poor songs they miss the mark (IMO) by some distance but his great songs are better than anyone else can write which is why he is so special. Like other reviewers I think new listeners would be advised to go for alternatives. personally I would direct you to Black Letter Days which is on a par, in terms of its excellence with Doolittle though utterly different in style.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much of a good thing, 31 Mar. 2008
This book is mostly enjoyable if somewhat tiring. There were a number of good lines and very acute observations. The author is very indulgent in his use of language with over-elaboration. I got the impression that he was showing off too much in an unnecessary fashion. Less is more at times but worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars For E's a jolly good fellow, 15 Mar. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had I not been a fan of Mark Oliver Everett I probably would not have read this book. He has an ability in his lyrics so cut past pedantic over-elaboration to get to the heart of issues with great clarity using simple language. This book is similarly filled with pithy descriptions of horrible feelings out of which his unending optimism is revealed. Peculiar as it may seem (and perhaps a little disturbing) I found the final third of the book the least gripping. In this phase he seems have developed a more informed constructive view of the world and his place in it. Understandably he seems more versed in pain and distress. His descriptions are moving and poignant without being mawkish or masochistic.

On a macro level he describes beautifully the effects of absent parents (physically or emotionally) on the development of children. They are too young to lead themselves and get mucked up if their leaders (parents) are too afraid, disinterested, distracted or whatever, to take this responsibility.

This is a treat showing an honest human and constructive person struggling with his (over)sensitivity and insecurity. I genuinely believe that this book should be considered for the English Curriculum in secondary (High) schools as a joint language and Personal Development text. Well done E, the world IS a better place thanks to this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Zucker Abrahams film of all, 4 Jan. 2007

This review is from: Top Secret! [DVD] (DVD)
Contains many of the funniest gags I have ever seen. There are some cracking verbal gags. I cannot praise it highly enough. My kids love it and so many of my contemporaries rate this as a classic. Alas not everyone gets it. Viva la difference...I love it!
