Fell in love with this before i had even purchased it after reading so many good reviews on this site and others. Managed to justify buying it to the other half as an xmas present for my mum :). Received it a few days ago now and am still finding excuses to not wrap it up. My Son's claimed it at the moment ! Am thinking that we'll have to sort some kind of a cosmos family share out or think about buying another. The stars are really undescribeable, until you see them you can never imagine how good the whole effect is. Only 2 slight grumbles, the first is the same as the other reviewer, the shape of the projector makes it look pretty strange in the living room but ideal for the kids room. Maybe they underestimated how much appeal it would have to adults ( or just thought that adults would like a childish star shape ). Second grumble is that on the advice leaflet it advises not to leave on for more than a 4 hour period to prolong life. I would of liked to put it on and listen as usual to music before i go to sleep. Would be a bit worried now about falling asleep with it on. It may be that a couple of extra hours wouldn't hurt and the manufacturer is just covering them selves ? Anyway, would still highly recommend and would still consider buying another.
Today im reviewing the laser cosmos which came this morning. I have had tons of gadgets but nothing can come close to this. The laser cosmos projects a blanket of dancing stars and swirling blue nembula across you living room. You can actually imagine your floating in space which will keep you and the children fascinated for hours. Add the laser cosmos and a good movie and you have the perfect romantic experience. It really has to be seen to be believed how good this is. The only downside is the shape for me. A big star shaped device in the living room is a bit daft but for a kids bedroom on the otherhand, its perfect! Its not too noisy, not to bulky and is well constructed. well worth the money, so go out and get one now.
My fiancee bought me this fo my christmas, it is fantastic!!! Switch all the lights off and lie back and watch the cosmos gently moving accross your ceiling. It's so de-stressing and relaxing! I'm sure it would also help people who have sleeping difficulties. Watching it in bed relaxes you to the point of sleep.
Very low hum comes out of the projector so is quiet enough to drop off to.
The cats were mesmerised also, so many green dots, which one to chase? They give up and just sit and watch too!
When he bought this we did a lot of searching for the cheapest one, and play.com with free deivery was the best price. Worth every penny.
