Great book which beautifully shows the genius of Giger during his work on the iconic movie. A great addition to my collection of Giger books etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good., 2 Sep 2014
Great product, easy to use and setup. It also works with iPhones (well my iPhone 5s anyway). Great quality product as expected from the brand.
One thing I would say is to use it with a soft zip up pouch for added protection.

3.0 out of 5 stars flawed product but usable which works well for me after, 30 Mar 2014
The build quality of this product is pretty good except for the Tap.
The Tap which you close to create the vacuum and then open to draw the water through is the poorest part of the product and is the only reason for the 3 stars.
After trying to use this product using the pathetic supplied Tap which offers no resistance and leaks preventing the needed vacuum to suck water up. I got this to work without the Tap, simple block the outlet pipe buy holding a finger over the end, then squeeze the bulb to force the air out through the inlet, when the Bulb is released water from the tank will be drawn up the tube and syphon well, once taken out the required amount of water simply remove the inlet end from the water. As long as the receiving bucket etc is below the Tank it will work.
Also i had to trim the length of the tubes supplied to suit my Tank.
I will certainly use it to do my weekly water change while using it to clean the floor of my Tank.
But for 7 which it costs on amazon (9 from Pet retail chain in the UK) what would you expect?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great starter tank or those without room for a bigger set up., 28 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you only want to keep a few small fish and or shrimp this is a brilliant choice especially if you have not the room for a larger tank. The quality of it is fantastic compared to others of this size, especially as the tank space excluding the filter area is 10L.
The filtration which combines mechanical and biological mediums is a great one, when i discussed this tank with an enthusiast who works at a local aquatic centre said the filtration can easily handle 100L let alone 10L. The filter is easy to clean and service. The space where the perfectly sized and quiet pump goes has enough room to fit a mini heater if you want to run it as a tropical tank. The supplied LED lamp does give off a good amount of light and provides a decent background light in the room i have it in.

The only negative but easily rectified points are: Due to its compact size is finding ornaments which do not look too big for it but manufactures are starting to produce more for smaller tanks. Due to condensation water loss from the tank is more noticeable and needs to be kept an eye on. Although the pump is quiet while running, but if its touching any of the surrounding surfaces it can will knock against it, but if placed carefully it can be done so it doesn't knock against it. Lastly the grill through which the water flows through to the filter is quite big, Fry and smaller shrimp can easily pass through it, in mine i have put some filter matting in the gap to prevent this.

As a newbie to the world of aquariums i am glad i got this set up.

5.0 out of 5 stars No... but it isn't all over. It's far from being all over., 24 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a beautiful and well presented celebration of the one thing in Doctor Who which allowed it to stand the test of time and be the worlds longest running science fiction show.
As a long time fan of the show in its original run and the 2005 reboot which has led on to acclaimed success and bringing the joy of a great British institution into a new generation of children and adults.
This collection of regeneration stories from the past and present is very well done and to be honest worth the 31 I paid for it here on preorder and certainly worth 46 (which it is at time of writing) for 6 DVD's presented in a nicely made fat page book.
The only let down on this is no special features, a nice little documentary would have been nice.


Do not buy this if only buying it for The Tenth Planet as it is being released later this year in the usual format as per the other classic Doctor Who DVD's with the usual amount of bonus features (hopefully).
I bought it as i a fan of the show and loved the presentation of product.

I have been a fan of Prince since the mid to late eighties and although he has done some questionable material this delightful little track hits the spot.

Its so laid back, chilled and has an awesome little groove. It has a retro feel although sounding fresh Even the remixes are good. So Mr? You have tickled our taste buds with this, where's the album :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Creepy! Clever! The best of the best., 27 Dec 2012
Let the chains of fenric shatter!!
In my opinion this is one of the best Doctor Who stories ever written and made. It is moody, dark, sinister with some moments of fun. Great acting throughout. A chilling sound track. Great special and make up effects. Its almost hard to believe this adventure was shown at around 7pm, its not a kiddies story in any way with some of its themes.
Buy it, grap yourself a drink and some nibbles, shut the doors and turn the lights off.

As a fan of Prince for many years i a new prince album is always a welcome event. Some of his stuff recently hasn't overly impressed me until Planet Earth the free album given away at the concert and with a news paper. But this 3 album set hits me and had me grinning ear to ear. Its funky, soulful, rocky. Prince known for his little amount of covers slips in a cover of the Bee Gees Crimson and Clover which also includes Wild Thing by the Troggs but with an added brilliant Prince guitar solo. Fantastic album, both of them the rince ones.

when i recieved this product i thought it was good but now a couple of months later i have to say its a poorly made product. When i first got it a friend said hers had broken, now mine has done the same thing. The ribbon used to pull the phone out of the sleeve if poorly sewn in and has now come out making phone removal less easy to do. I always say you pay for what you get, goes for its product.
