This was a very flimsy bit of kit that never worked. I had no trouble returning it though , so full marks for that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Abercrombie Lite., 7 Jan. 2015

I wanted so much to enjoy this book. I enjoyed the dark humour and realism ( if you can use that word of fantasy tales...) of his previous books and I was looking forward to more of the same.
As a book , as a read , it's OK but it comes across as a kid's book .
Nothing wrong with that if that sort of teenage novel is to your taste , but this is very lightweight compared to his previous offerings.
Disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a lot of use, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this watch as I wanted to keep a check on my hear-rate while riding my mountain bike.
Well , for a start off , you have to place your finger over a sensor in order for this to happen , and that isn't all that easy when you're riding.
That isn't the sport watch's fault though as I should have figured that out before I bought it. However , I would point out that the title does tend to give the idea that it has a chest monitor ? It doesn't.
What is definitely the sport watch's fault though ( apart from being rather awkward to set up anyway) is that it is unbelievably inaccurate !
I thought that something was wrong when it indicated that I had a resting heart-rate of 150 , or 97 , or ..... *gulp* 250 ! ( needless to say , a quick check with a more normal watch revealed that , no , not having a heart attack yet).
So.
It wasn't expensive but in use , it was..er.. useless and the result is totally untrustworthy as well . I never even got around to setting up the high and low pulse rate setting because it obviously wasn't worth it.
Pity , because it does look very nice.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointing., 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 9 Songs [DVD] (DVD)
Not sure what I really expected from this , it was only curiosity that had me buy it. Well , curiosity is now satisfied and I have to admit that it was quite boring. Although some of the pop concert performances were alright. Put it this way , I've had it for some time now and I have never managed to watch it to the end.

I bought this set-up to use with a PC I keep connected to my television . If the use of it could be any simpler I really can't imagine how. The set is inexpensive and works perfectly . Battery life appears to be very long indeed and the little USB dongle works brilliantly. No trouble at all , no set-up required and works with two laptops as well. Really , really easy to use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes , you shouldn't return., 23 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Midnight Wire (Audio CD)
But sometimes.... you should. I have no idea why but I was very fond of Curved Air at the time. Never got to see them and of course there was no such thing as a CD , back then. This particular album I only ever had on a cassette tape which self-destructed as per usual but I had good memories of it and when I saw it on Amazon......
If you like Curved Air , this is nice. It's a bit smoother than some of their output ( a bit like Airborne ) and the band were certainly in good form for this one , as was the estimable Ms Kristina !
Well worth a listen .

Nicely made bushes that enabled me to fit a fairly upmarket new Rockshox shock to my much older Dawes frame. Naturally, there was a bit of hassle ( when isn't there ? ) but they are in , solid , and doing the job.

... you will ever get a Bluetooth gadget to stay in your ear . An added bonus is that they were inexpensive and I now have two spares as well.

If there is a better gadget for cleaning a motorcycle , I haven't found it yet . Just the job for all those nooks and crannies. A bit rough for the paintwork but ideal for around the wheels etc.
