1.0 out of 5 stars Not as pictured, 26 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The ones in the picture are good but what I received was quite different and not strong enough for the curtains I have.
Standard curtains would have been fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality trash!, 6 Nov. 2015
Enjoy it for what it is - lots of cheap laughs done with style.
I found a VHS tape of this in a clearout and laughed so much it hurt then bought the DVD when it came out.
Carry On meets the Adams Family!

5.0 out of 5 stars Plug in, go, 17 Oct. 2015
1. Remove from packaging
2. Plug in
3. Wait two minutes for Windows to download and install drivers automatically

Good video, good audio, didn't even need to look at the manual
Fits to the top of my monitor, not that securely but fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising!, 22 Mar. 2015
I caught this on TV and didn't bother changing channels (not my usual kind of film at all) and started watching while I was thinknig about other things.
Predictable in some ways but great acting and very well written.
Very enjoyable.

The music itself is great but the recordings were live and vary.
Disappointing when you can hear how great he was.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great little XBMC box, 26 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It has limitations for the price but is still great value.
I tried Openelec, XBMCbuntu and Windows 7 plus ZBMC.
Openelec hard IR receiver support issues (it is a stripped down distribution).
XBMCbutntu (Ubuntu distribution with XBMC built in) work prefectly.
Windows 7 plus XBMC stuggled, froze up at times.
4G RAM and a SATA drive (hard drive or SSD) is great, working with SMB shares from my Windows PC without any problems, very slick and responsive.
This is the recent 2830 CPU version.
OH - a word of warning, you need a SATA SSD as there isn't a second mSATA slot.

Matilda [Blu-ray] [1996]
Matilda [Blu-ray] [1996]

Price: £7.22

5.0 out of 5 stars A delight, 17 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Matilda [Blu-ray] [1996] (Blu-ray)
Roald Dahl's story is wonderfully told.
Danny deVito and Reah Perlman are completely over the top and Mara Wilson plays Matilda with wonder and innocence.
What can i say but ENOY.


Going Postal [Blu-ray]
Going Postal [Blu-ray]
Dvd ~ David Suchet
Price: £8.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Get it on DVD, 16 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Going Postal [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The story, production and acting are great.
However - the video quality is poor and in many scenes there is a lot of noise in the darker parts of the picture, sort of like dust.
This defeats the object of buying the Blu-ray instead of the DVD

5.0 out of 5 stars From apprentice to journeyman, 9 July 2014
Code Complete is NOT the usual software book.
It is about helping someone make the transition from novice/graduate to professional software engineer although the basic principles are applicable to most branches of engineering.
Understanding the benefits of early steps in a project - even that there ARE steps in a project, the costs of not catching problems early on etc.
Not flashy but a good foundation for a career in software engineering.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost great, 31 May 2014
Yes, dual link DVI.
Yes, KVMP.
Yes, a good price.
No, it doesn't just work.
I hook it up, plug the keyboard and mouse into the two USB sockets on the back of it, power up my PC and watch it hang.
Took half an hour to discover that the PC and laptop see they keyboard and mouse continually connecting and disconnecting.
Use the front and rear USB ports labelled "USB 2.0" and it works.
Oh, and when changing computer press the button briefly otherwise the USB ports don't switch.
When it works it does the job nicely.
