5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the best, 30 Oct. 2011
If you have an expensive lens, especially a 70-200 f/2.8 - this is the filter you need on the front. The nano coating is currently the best anti-reflection multi-coating out there... I previously had an uncoated Tiffen filter on my Canon 70-200L and the difference is striking - vastly reduced flare and increased contrast when shooting into the light with the B+W. (No anti-Tiffen feelings - just don't buy uncoated or single coated filters!)...

The B+W MRC filters are the next step down from the 'nano' and are also very good (and just a little less expensive)

B+W filters are beautifully made, with brass and fine quality glass - expensive, but absolutely worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...and it goes PAST 11 !, 30 Oct. 2011
Stunningly good sound quality and it auto-tuned to Planet Rock when first switched on - what else would you expect from a Marshall?

Volume control actually rotates round and round - so effectively goes past 11 - but at least it looks like it goes up to 11 (as famously quoted by Spinal Tap!).

I like the underlying humour to what is in effect a Pure Radio - if you're a musician or love any sort of Rock, or need to buy a gift for such a person then this is the radio for you/them.

100% recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 24 Sept. 2011
B+W are renowned for their quality products and this simple UV filter lives up to the hype. I did want to get the nano coated version which was out of stock when I purchased, however the multicoating on the MRC version is definitely of a high standard. If you are wanting a 'protection' filter for your new lens/camera either the Nano or MRC versions of these filters are highly recommended - however I would avoid the uncoated cheapest version simply because uncoated filters from any manufacturer can increase flare and generally dilute the contrast whenever the sun is in or just out of frame...

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality - but rather go for the multi-coated option, 19 Aug. 2011
Excellent quality items these B+W filters - however I would recommend you go for the slightly more expensive multi-coated version for something even better...

4.0 out of 5 stars The best 'late-Skynyrd' album, 12 Feb. 2011
This review is from: The Last Rebel (Audio CD)
As a confirmed pre-crash Skynyrd fan, I've not really enjoyed the later work of the band anywhere near as much. This album does however get very close for me and I would rate it as the best post-crash album. The title track has the power and depth of the earlier band and is definitely the show-stopper on the album. A recommended buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than expected..., 12 Feb. 2011
This is a budget digital/optical to 'normal' hi-fi RCA red and white plug box. It performs superbly and you would never know that there is a 'budget' item in the system!

I use it for taking the digital optical (out of the headphone mini-jack) on my 27" iMac and into an old Pioneer A400X hi-fi amp (and into Mordaunt Short speakers)

It is possible to use a regular analogue (wire) cable with a mini-jack on one end and RCA red and white hi-fi plugs on the other - the problem I had was a general background buzzing noise that appeared to be related to the bluetooth mouse and/or processor, even with the volume right down...

Switching to the digital/optical route has cleaned up the sound 100% and now there is absolutely zero background hum/buzz, even with the amp at max volume.

The quality of sound is absolutely stunning and I would recommend this over the more traditional 'wire' connection option.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one!, 18 Feb. 2009
Epson Stylus Photo R2880 A3 Photo Printer with individual inks

Having had much frustration with an R1900, I've now switched to the R2880 and straight out the box it looks nearly the same - but the prints.... Superb.

If you are undecided between the R1900 and R2880 - get the R2880, it's a little more pricey, but oh so worth it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't....., 26 Jan. 2009
Epson Stylus Photo R1900 A3+ Printer

I'm a professional photographer and have to agree with the other review from the Graphic Designer.... Don't get this one.

Build quality is excellent and I had high hopes as it was unpacked and plugged in. The print quality was poor to begin with and only after plenty of fiddling, tweaking and general frustration have I got to a point where the prints are nearly as good as my ancient Photo EX (now a museum piece). I really expected to see an improvement in 10 years!

I print only matt prints and have never used a single piece of gloss paper, however I've used two gloss black cartridges and three gloss optimisers in two months (and about 50 A3 prints) - this is because every time you switch on or do a nozzle clean it cleans all nozzles. When is Epson going to improve software to allow you to purge ONLY the tank you've just replaced or need to clean? You do a 'nozzle check' and there may be one or two colours playing up - why not purge only those colours instead of spraying those precious 11mls (what a joke!) of ink into the sponge at the side?

I'm putting this one on ebay so if you think it's great and want it - come and get it. I'm off to look at the R2880 - it is getting decent reviews though does still suffer with the pathetic 11ml tanks....
