Top marks for value for money. Gives great light output and colour temperature and I was able to use a redundant Sony Camcorder NP-F730 battery I already had (no bats supplied with this item). This lasted for well over an hour at full power. Great advantage with such a unit is that it does not get warm, let alone hot; a good thing if you have more than one in a studio. Gives a soft light but using a brolly, white reflector or ceiling really improves spread. Thoroughly recommended!

2.0 out of 5 stars Initially unable to tune to HD channels but after installation ..., 18 Sept. 2014
Initially unable to tune to HD channels but after installation of a replacement HD board carried out under warranty, all was well. However, after just 18 months, a vertical green line has appeared on the panel and I have been quoted £411 to have it replaced: More than the cost of the new TV! I await Samsung's response but the unit's performance after a relatively short period is not encouraging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 8 Mar. 2014

You can find this item at a cheaper price but you will have to wait for it to be shipped from Chine direct. Mine came within 2 days and I ordered 2 to avail of the free delivery. Well worth the effort as the display is large and clear. It is very useful to have the relative humidity shown and now I know how dry my electric heating makes my place. The temperature can be switched from Centigrade to Fahrenheit if you wish.
You will need a triple A battery and a little patience in setting it up as there are no instructions at all, in English or Chinese. Recommended despite this small shortcoming.

My favourite perfume (not on me) which is so evocative and sensual. It is long lasting and practical and was well packed on arrival. You can't get better at this price.

This flag is well made and the size is just what I needed. It suits the purpose perfectly. An ideal way to promote your favourite country or cover a nasty mark on your wall!


The Forty Rules of Love
The Forty Rules of Love
by Elif Shafak
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure, 8 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone wishing to know more about the mystical ways of love or religion would do well to read this. A great introduction into Sufism and the ancient ways of the 13th century Persian poet Rumi and the founding of the Mevlevi.
Written in a wonderful style from the perspective of all it's many different characters, I found this book difficult to put down, wanting to know more about each of them.
If you like history and the ancient Islamic side of Turkey, you'd do well to read this but if not, give it a go anyway; Elif Shafak is one of Turkey's greatest modern day writers and this is one of her best works. Remember, some of the characters are real and their tombs are revered in Turkey to this day.

Hahnel Studio Light Cable for Combi TF Wireless Remote Control and Flash Trigger

2.0 out of 5 stars Ill-fitting adaptor, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst the Hahnel studio light cable for the Combi TF Wireless Remote and Flash Trigger seems fine, the adaptor to convert up to a studio flash jack is very loose fitting and cannot be used. It loses contact 50% of the time so would have to resort to either taping the adaptor together or using an audio jack plug converter. It cannot be returned as I need the thing to be working now so I will just throw it and use my existing audio plug, which is fine and fits well with the Hahnel lead.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect companion, 28 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My Acer Aspire 5536 was bought at just the right time as the price was very competitive. It arrived very quickly to my address in France (about 4 days) and was well packed. Simply a case of switching on. It does everything asked of it and is exactly as specified. Even at a higher price this laptop should be seriously considered. Its 500 GB HDD is just what I need to store and review my thousands of newly scanned images and the HD screen gives superb reproduction of both still images and films. I can watch films either from DVD or using a flash drive with one of the USB sockets - smooth and effortless and with headphones, the sound is quite dramatic. Although it looks quite big, it fits into my existing laptop bag perfectly. Wi-fi signal picked up easily from my PC and from the local fast food restaurant although to be honest I stayed in the car park outside to avoid buying a coffee! No hesitation in recommending.


State Of Play - Complete Series [2003] [DVD]
State Of Play - Complete Series [2003] [DVD]
Dvd ~ John Simm
Price: £6.93

5.0 out of 5 stars A familiar theme, 4 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A superb political thriller, very well produced, directed and acted (Bill Nighy is classic) and thankfully still available. At this price it is a must. There is little doubt that when the BBC produce a drama, they excel and it is a shame we do not see more of this calibre of drama. It is timeless and as relevant now as the year in which it was made. Buy now before the series becomes a collector's item.
