5.0 out of 5 stars Great film, 12 July 2014
story line is great until close to end and then it seems to go all wrong. cant help wondering if its due to some editing. Good quality sound and video. Enjoyed it.

Its Region 2 Not region 1. I have to play region 1 on a different player.....that's how I know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed the film., 10 July 2014

Great film with good quality video and audio. Making Whoopee features in this film. It's basically a love story with a funny end. I was surprised to see Nurse Chapel from the original Star Trek series. She appeared in Next Generation as the mother of Diana Troy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pity about the quality, 10 July 2014
Typical Eddie Cantor but a little slow. The picture quality and audio were a touch below par which is why I have given just the three stars.

It's watchable but wished the quality had been improved.

Works well, well it should it's an original so I wouldn't expect anything less. I also have the one that came with the camera so havign put them side by side I can't tell the difference. Very pleased with the item but not the price.

It also came with a UK cable and plug. That wasn't expected so a nice bonus.

This review is from: The Kid from Spain (DVD)
Dreadful quality video and audio. It both looks and sounds as though its a copy taken with not very good equipment from a tired, very tired, VHS tape. If I had known what the quality was going to be like I would not have purchased this disk.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Disappointed with these to the point where I have not bothered using them. I dug out an old pair instead. Apart from the obvious need to make a good connection a SATA 3 cable has to be able to carry data at higher rate than a SATA 2 or 1. The data does not travel any faster along this cable than either the 2 or 1. So how does it do it. The answer is simple, it has more strands of wire. Imagine a single track road and compare it to a dual carriageway. The speed limit is exactly the same on both tracks but more vehicles can travel along the dual carriageway consequently the number of vehicles per hour is higher, and therefore on a 3 track road even more vehicle travel along it.

Going back to the SATA 3 cable you would expect the cables to have more strands of wire making the cable fatter than that in the other grades. You certainly would not expect the cable to be thinner as is the apparent case with these cables. Less strands of wire means less electrons to push the wave of data along. Consequently these cables are causing a bottleneck or going back to the vehicle analogy these cables will cause a traffic jam.

I agree that they are a nice compact cable and they are a pretty blue but neither of those facts make these SATA 3 capable. You should also question the word 'original' in the products description. I have to ask, original to what?

So as I no longer possess a system that uses a SATA 1 or 2 device these cables have been consigned to my cable draw and I suspect their next destination will be the rubbish bin. It would cost more than they are worth to send them back

1.0 out of 5 stars Quite good construction BUT NOT IR, 8 July 2014

This is as much an IR 720NM as I am. I have now had it side by side with a genuine 720NM filter and you can immediately see that this is no more than a FAKE !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Hours of entertainment, 5 July 2014
This review is from: Hollywood Canteen (Region 2) (DVD)
Well not quite two hours. It's very nearly one act after another strung together with the story of two soldiers at home on sick leave. A right good film.

This review is from: Strike Me Pink (Region 2) (DVD)
The quality of this black and white film considering it's age is excellent. The film itself has an awful song and I was glad to get past it. Some of the gags were overworked but I think that is down to the directors of the time. It's mostly funny but you have to like this kind of film first. If you don't I can imagine this being turned off before the middle of the afore mentioned film. On the whole I enjoyed it, but it like the old comedies anyway...Cantor and Trinder mostly.
