3.0 out of 5 stars Got our two bikes to the south of France, 24 Jun 2014

This review is from: VW Golf Mk6 Two Bike Rack
This worked but it was very hard to keep the bikes securely fastened to the car and we had to stop once to tighten it and it had to be tightened at every rest stop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best thing I have ever seen on TV, 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is hard to find any fault with this amazing TV series. I had read the books before seeing the first series and was bowled over by the standard of, well, everything. Great casting - Nicolai Coster-Walder is absolutely born to the role of Jamie. Tyrion is the star played to perfection by Peter Dinklage. The women are superb, especially Lena Headey as Cercei. But the real revelation has been some of the smaller parts in the books which have been so good that they get extra time in the series, notably Bronn and the outstanding Charles Dance as Tywin. Production values are stunning, up to the standard of the Lord of the Rings films if that can be believed for a TV series. No punches are pulled in the sex and violence which were part of medieval society, which is what a Song of Ice and Fire is about. Series four is the last part of the third book though it incorporates some episodes from later books. It seems to get better with each series.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the home server I always wanted, 6 Jun 2014

This is an amazing addition to my home setup. It rips CDs, DVDs and BluRays with no problem, doing it fast and almost without fail. It does sometimes have problems tagging the ripped disks, but then that is normal given the state of the tagging databases. It streams to my Oppo 95 and delivers great sound and video.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works but not great, 6 Jun 2014

I am a happy user of my Amazon Kindle. It does everything I want but there are some issues. Firstly, it rebooted all by itself three times while reading Skin Game by Jim Butcher. There is nothing particularly difficult about the book, so I think these were random reboots. I have never had a random reboot with my iPad. Twice the video app has seized up so that it was impossible to view downloaded Amazon Prime videos. The battery life is not as good as my iPad mini. The WiFi is a bit flaky - it sometimes fails to take me to WiFi log in screens where my laptop and phone have no problem. So I would say that the fit and finish of the Kindle needs some attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant TV, 20 Mar 2014

Such great chemistry between Holmes and Watson, re-imagined for our time. In 'The Hobbit - Desolation of Smaug' you get the same two actors interacting, Cumberbatch as Smaug, Freeman as Bilbo. Magic.

4.0 out of 5 stars For afficionados of the new golden age of US TV, 20 Mar 2014

Describes the role of the 'showrunner' in creating the new age of quality TV starting with the Sopranos. The title is 'difficult men' because in all these shows the hero is an anti-hero - Mafia villain, drug pusher, philanderer etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, good recordings, 2 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After the complete Bach set, this seemed like a good idea and it was. A comprehensive set of Beethoven recordings, all of which are good sound and good interpretations, some really good. Excellent value.
