5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, 13 Sept. 2015

Great movie, plain and simple. Blu-ray is blu-ray, good quality due to modern production.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre quality, poor design, 13 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not overawed by this.. the quality is quite mediocre, but worst is that the clip for hooking it over the monitor is terribly badly designed. It assumes a thin [laptop] monitor, but it also gives you no flexibility at all to move the camera direction. Because it can't look away, it's also therefore not very convenient for privacy, as there's no privacy cover. Relegated to my PC that I don't use much for emergencies only, mounted 180deg where it's liable to fall off my Dell 24" old ultrasharp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent trans autobiography written by someone who can write, 13 Sept. 2015

If you're ever concerned about being a rough and tumble hurly burly man but always known you're a woman... read this! The original and best autobiography of the trans condition. Jan being a journalist has excellent control of her penwomanship.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show, great remastering, but shame the India episodes not included, 13 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this show to bits. The cleaned up prints are very nice, though it's a shame they couldn't clean up all of it. Sharpe's Gold in particular suffers from badly upscaled DVD. Gets a point knocked off because I think they should've included the newer Indian episodes in the box set - why must we get these separately?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show, but no extras, 13 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great show, and great with the print and sound improved. Find the lack of extras a bit jarring, no interviews or commentaries, so I'd only go for this if it's on offer :( Also the box they came in is annoying with the overlapping disks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product, awkward canister, 13 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems really good for keeping my wig nice for a few extra days before washing. However, the can is a pain. It's good that it's big, but it also makes it a bit unwieldy. Managed to smash the button on one canister when I dropped it, and my latest canister the lid is so tight on it takes both hands to remove it (I normally have my wig in the other waiting to be sprayed).

3.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy and big, but okay, 13 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They're okay, very soft flimsy materials used, but in some cases that's okay because it makes for a very comfortable shoe. I could easily have come down a size, maybe 2.. but quite tempted to buy another pair in a smaller size and colour, so not too bad! Like all cheap trainers, though, the heel area is already wearing out and rips developing. I just get heel grips and cover stuff like that over, but not sure if that'll work too well with these because the material is not glued to the back of the heel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems good, 13 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This seems a pretty good product... a brand always helps if you're buying a power supply so they have a vested interest in them not exploding! I've only had mine a week or two, but it seems okay. Runs quite hot (what brick doesn't?), but when the laptop is charged it's cool so it has a charge cut off. Like others say, it has a shorter cable from the brick to the laptop. It's not a kettle lead to the plug, it's a triangular 3-pin connector. LED is bright, but not super bright like some device LEDs that provide unwanted night lights!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite reasonable, 31 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've bought the same pair for a number of years now, so I know how these puppies roll. Please be aware that the problems I have with wear on them are generally due to me using green superfeet soles in them, which positions my foot slightly differently to how Merrell expected. However, the wear has been in exactly the same spots every time, so what I can say is that this shoe is consistent!
Regardless of the superfeet, you need to replace the laces - they are horrible and undo themselves constantly, and my brother who had a pair also complained of this more than anything else. You also need to use that little loop at the back when you put them on (or use a shoe-horn, sir!) as the back of the shoe is one of the first things to go.
So for me, the top of the back wears away fairly quickly, which is okay for a while but eventually will become painful - time to replace them! It also wears on the inside exterior just back from the top laces. Maybe that's my weird walking style, but wear on that bit can show within days, but it's not serious and there is a lot of material there. It can also wear in the fold at the top of your big toe, that's how my last pair finally went, a great gaping hole does not do well in a country that suffers from flooding like we seem to these days. The sole will wear, but I've generally found it to stand the test of time. Worst wear point is the flat under your front pad. I've noticed bits of wear around the side of the sole wears it glues to the upper, but it's not caused issues, though it may be a point of leakage. Occasionally holes can develop in the soles which, when wet, will produce an annoying squeak. This hasn't happened in the last few pairs, so hopefully they sussed the issue with that.
As new, they're mostly comfortable, but do need to wear a bit. I find the edge near the end of the laces drives into my ankle ball, so I have to keep folding them out to wear them in a little bit.
I wear these shoes all the time, and it takes me just over a year to wear through a pair. I live in London and walk around 4-6 miles almost daily. I cycle in them too, and they're very good on all but very flat pedals. In the wet they're fine as long as you don't submerge the top in water.
