5.0 out of 5 stars Image and sound quality are great considering its age, 14 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being one of those who was privileged with having this TV interpretation of Sherlock Holmes as my first after reading the books (a long time ago), there is nothing for me to fault here. Just how serious and respectful the production is to the material is an extraordinary testament to how all these recent reboots are nothing but cash grabs by talentless hacks... Sigh!

Image and sound quality are great considering its age, and the included subtitles just close the deal tighter. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, passionate documentary on cinema, 14 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautiful, passionate documentary on cinema. It works more as an personal perspective than an objective history, hence the title, so purists beware. In a time of ever diminishing originality in movie making, these short hours celebrate art and not box office revenue. Only the absence of MUCH needed subtitles prevent me from giving this excellent piece of television the 5 stars it fully deserves...

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to mount, 14 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to mount, good grip and comfort. It has a few imperfections on its work surface (pimples, hard spots), but the fair price helps. If it were functionaly it would definetly deserve 5 stars.

Return to the Whorl (Book of the Short Sun)
Return to the Whorl (Book of the Short Sun)
by Gene Wolfe
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough condition for what it is, a great story told by a master, 26 Sep 2014
The books is great, and I must say that I don't mind used books at all: not wasting trees and acquiring an item with a lived life is ok by me. Unfortunately it arrived used from a library, with stampings, a non removable plastic coating around the dust cover, and some torn cover pages (from where the RFID was ripped). Disappointing but usable, and considering the cost it's okay.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great rendition of some universal classics, 26 Sep 2014
Love the performances and the music, just the 90's packaging (double box for 2 discs?) felt a bit awkward. Otherwise a great asset to a music collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it should, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After just about 3 years of light use, this backpack isn't keeping up. Some inner fabric has ripped easily and some of its outer metal parts have rusted, ruining the look of it considerably. Also must add that the compartment organization isn't really that practical.

Despite not being "bad", it really doesn't live to its brand name and cost. Not recommended.
