4.0 out of 5 stars Beware: Toshiba Demands Ransom Money, 1 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Caveat emptor! I bought this to upgrade my Toshiba A210 laptop. My 'computer expert'; (he is a pro not just a friendly neighbour) checked out various options on the internet. The Hitachi seemed like a good option and was recommended for my model of laptop. The disk fitted BUT we found it needed a manufacturer's password to enable it to work! The Toshiba tech support desk said 'Yes. Return the unit to us with £60 and we'll unlock it for you!' Not impressed. What we've done is to make it an external drive. It works well but I am not impressed. As an external drive it works well but isn't convenient . But I wasn't going to pay Toshiba's ransom money.

5.0 out of 5 stars World War 1 Encapsulated, 1 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I originally read this as a teenager along with Memoirs of a Fox Hunting Man - this version is for my Kindle. I read this originally along with reading the first world war poets, (Brookes, Graves, etc) and as a body of work i found that they expressed the devastation of WWI. I had great sympathy with his anti-war view and read with interest Pat Barker's Regeneration about Sassoon's time at Craiglockahrt, where he was sent 'to get over' his anti-war views. It is a great expression of the age - the prose is tight and from such a compact book you get a great feeling of what WWi was like. If you include this with Birdsong and War Horse (the play not the film) you get an incredible insight into WWI. I regret that when I hear the plays and stories being manufactured to remind us of what it was like, they pall into insignificance alongside these great writings. Read it!

3.0 out of 5 stars For me three is enough of Harry., 10 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the third Harry Hole story I've read. Not particularly gripping bur not bad. At times the 'back story' of the various characters or incidents gets boring. The actual story doesn't move along fast enough. Also tired of reading about Harry's demons. So I'm moving on and trying another Scandinavian writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Drinker's Necessity!, 5 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had the wine saver for years. It works well and essential to keep wine fresh if there's any left in the bottle. Gave one to my sister-in-law - she thinks it's great too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just What the Doctor Ordered!, 5 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Couldn't buy it on the high street so ordered through Amazon - postage made it expensive but for me Maalox Plus works. Was prescribed Maalox some thirty years ago when I suffered from an ulcer - that's gone but every now and again I have indigestion but Maalox gets rid of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Technically very good., 28 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In terms of technical performance: top class. I didn't notice/realise that it didn't have a 'cap' to protect 'live end' so can't drop it into my shirt pocket to take it about with me. I bought a King of Flash Carrying Case to protect it and make it convenient/safe to carry it about.
