4.0 out of 5 stars power pack, 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
ORDERED THIS ON 29/1/13 at 10pm. Couldn't buy from one seller cos they couldn't ship to Ireland.Ordered this one then discovered it was coming from China,checked seller feedback didn't give much confidence but ran with it as had no choice.I was pleasantly surprised ,got a working tacking number and item received today 31/1/13 at 11pm excellent service.The battery charged quickly and works fine.At the current price would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.Even though it's a spurious item it fits the laptop flush no protrusions a tiny mismatch on topside would have to scrutinise to see it all in all a good purchase.After reading another review I checked the battery life ,with Lenovo energy management installed on 'Super Energy Saver' setting the battery life while playing a dvd was given as 3 hours 45 mins it was actually 2 hours 55 mins still not too bad tho

4.0 out of 5 stars skybox f3, 10 July 2012
One of the latest additions to Openbox range I say this because even as i write this there is now another version of this box on the market not to worry it's virtually the same box different name and colour tho.The f3 offers similar to it's predecessors
however there are some changes channel names are longer in the programme guide channel change is about 1 second HD reception is excellent and the selling point is wifi capability plus pvr snag here is there's only one usb port inconvienently positioned behind the front panel so it has to be left open when using these options unless you prompt for homeplugs connection( as wireless bridge is not a great success on this model) you can only record the programme your watching as this is a single tuner. The EPG function is limited to now and next only. The box itself is quite small about 1/3 of the size of a regular receiver so space is not an issue. In conclusion for the money this is an excellent box if you want more features then naturally you'll end up paying more for your preference however if you want a good value box with good reception and quick channel change look no further

My Sky HD Remote recently packed up replacement prices vary some as high as 50 euro. The one offered here is excellent well made Phillips brand of better quality than my original and at an extremely good price. It arrived here in Ireland 4 working days after ordering I've absolutely no complaints good firm feel to keypad quick response fast delivery I could buy 4 of these
for the same price as a generic version here simply well worth the money if you need a replacement remote look no further

4.0 out of 5 stars Avengers T.N.G., 19 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This reinvention of 60's classic The Avengers appeared in the mid 70's.The duo now became a trio due in part to Patrick Macnees'age,thus the late Gareth Hunt became Gambit an all purpose action man. The trio is completed by Purdey played by Jonna Lumley.The shows themselves are a bit of a contradiction some hark back to the surreal plots of the older series Gnaws a giant rat homage to Jaws the movie and others like House of Cards are more mainstream in keeping with tv of the time .Theres a fair balance of action and fantasy in the two seasons in this set.Having said that there is the odd lemon here too but not as many as to be bitter. The production ran out of money towards the end of the second season and the last few episodes are noticably weaker.The picture quality is ok as is sound the only extras on offer are two commentaries on the first episode of each season
All said it's a fair package 26 episodes for around [] pounds all the leads are emminently watachable and don't take the show too seriously well worth your time especially if your an Avengers fan

4.0 out of 5 stars Strangely Interesting....., 14 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'M a big fan of retro shows ITC in particular I suppose it's reliving childhood tv really.I didn't remember Strange Report
but I did see one or two on one of the itv sat channels a while back and that got me interested.In a nutshell Adam Strange is a retired Chief Inspector now a criminologist using the latest forensic techniques to aid the police in solving cases.
He has two assistants Eve and Ham.The show follows similar pattern to other ITC shows two male one female leads and their special talent though this time it's not a ghost or super powers it's science based.It's a good show similar in vein to Department S though obviously aimed at the US market with the slightly annoying freeze frame titles popular at that time.It was produced by Norman Felton of MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. fame.Sadly only 16 shows were made the reason being at this point the show was to move to the US and the cast weren't comfortable with this.The stories vary some are well thought out Skeleton
for example others such as Swindle not so.In general it's an entertaining series and will capture your intrest fairly quickly
On the down side for extras fans the disc packed with extras doesn't materialise it's highlight is a 30 min chat with Anneke Wills,Eve in the show the American edit of the afforementioned Skeleton episode is just a 2 min scene shown out of sequence,not up to Networks usual high standards.That's really the only disappointment I had with the set other than that it's great entertainment at a reasonable price and a welcome addition to all us ITC collectors enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 60's affair..., 11 Jan 2011
Brilliant 60's spy series that is unfortunately unavailable in it's entirety outside the U.S. I imported the series from the U.S. last year but before I knew of it's availability I also bought this series of U.N.C.L.E. movies In truth they are two part episodes from the four tv seasons edited together for European cinema release during the series heyday.Nevertheless these movies are very entertaining and are sure to appeal to all fortysomethings It's not a recent release so the extras consist of pdf documents I can't elaborate as i've never viewed them. The movies are good fun and don't take themselves too seriously
and at the current asking price,under 9 pounds represent good value for a 5 movie box-set.A thought to leave you with both the leads in the show are still working in mainstream tv Robert Vaughn plays Albert in Hustle and David McCallum plays Ducky Mallard in NCIS what other 40 year old show can claim that? If you liked U.N.C.L.E. first time around your on a winner here if your a first time viewer try your luck you may be surprised

Get Smart - HBO Season 1 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Barbara Feldon
Offered by skyvo-direct
Price: 20.13

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Smart ,Get This...., 1 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A show I fondly remember from childhood.Basically a spoof of the many popular spy shows and movies of the era.It's probably unfair to say but Don Adams portrayal of the title character Maxwell Smart is really what carries the show . Max is the world's worst secret agent obvious to everyone but himself,yet one way or another he manages to win the day Adams creates what should be a very irritating character ,the voice alone gets many people,his exaggerations WOULD YOU BELIEVE.. followed by some outlandish claim .Yet Adams injects a certain charm into Max which has everyone rooting for him.Some may say and rightly so the show's writers Mel Brooks and Buck Henry are the force behind it's success but when I first seen this over 40 years ago
Max and his antics stuck firmly in my mind and today remain still.There are a couple of run of the mill docs and commentaries by Mel Brooks and Max side kick in the show Barbara Feldon as extras.If your a fan you'll probably own this already if you've just a passing knowledge of the show you could do worse than invest in this set it's still fresh and funny Get Smart you won't regret it...

5.0 out of 5 stars yesterday memories...., 25 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this show as a child both it and Ace of Wands were head and shoulders above the rest of the kids tv of the time
Unlike Ace of Wands this show has survived in it's entirety.Here are the complete 68 episodes the stories vary in quality
the latter years in particular however the set more than justifies it's current asking price Other reviews have highlighted the best of the episodes so as I am in agreement with these opinions theres no point in re stating mine here .The extras package consists mainly of text based documents and and episode guide for each series as these type of guide goes they are informative interesting and not overlong I have only listened to a couple of the series commentaries so far and they will keep you interested for a second viewing of the series cast members relate freely their experiences both good and bad of the series production.On a personal note the presentation box isn't great a bit flimsy though the dvd packaging is fine .The picture quality is ok not as good as the Ace of Wands set but here I think it adds to the charm of the show maybe this is just nostalgic nonsense on my part or my particular fondness for this series All said this is well worth the investment for fortysomethings with fond memories of 70's kids tv.

5.0 out of 5 stars strength and comfort, 5 Oct 2010
I have used this particular lead for the past three years.Sam my Springer Spaniel is strong of will and body and can take some restraining when trying to get his own way.Sam destroyed 4 different types of lead in just 2 years and discovering this particular model was a Godsend.From the human point of view the handle is air cushioned and lined with soft rubber taking a lot of pressure off your 'walking hand' it's a decent length thus giving the dog a little extra movement while secured and from my personal view it seems Sam proof in that it has taken him on long walks for the last three years and is still holding up.
Another plus is the man made fibre construction lasts much longer than leather in our particular [wet]climate

5.0 out of 5 stars starting off, 4 Oct 2010
as I mentioned in a previous review I have been feeding dogs Burns for many years now.As with the adult version of the food there are no GM ingredients in this product.Rather than the usual dry foods mini bites comes as a flake as opposed to the larger round nut. Water can be added to wean the dog to the food.I used this food with Sam my 6 year old Springer Spaniel for the first three months of his life and then progressed to the adult version with no transitional problems.The food is designed
to help the dog develop in size gradually rather than bulk up quickly which may cause bone and joint problems in later life.The dog is by no means undernourished by this as I can attest Sam is a large springer almost 28inches in height and has good muscular definition but most importantly full of life and vigour and in excellent health this can be attributed in part to his diet
I know that this food may not suit all but in my experience I can't speak highly enough of it.
