Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto, Piano Concerto 1
Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto, Piano Concerto 1
Offered by ELITEUK
Price: £19.89

2.0 out of 5 stars LISTEN BEFORE YOU BUY, 2 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as I wanted to hear the versions of both Tchaikovsky works but I wish I had not bothered. The sound is awful and seems to have been mastered from an old LP. Do not waste your money. I will be throwing my copy away.

5.0 out of 5 stars QUALITY HAMA, 2 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality as you would expect from Hama. It was on special offer so it represents very good value for money. It does its "Skylight" job and protects the front element of my lens. What more could I ask for! Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars CANON CLONE EOS-M ADAPTER, 2 Sep 2014
Looks identical to the "Canon" branded version but at a fraction of the cost. Only difference I can see is that the printed lettering and symbols on the Canon are whiter and bolder. Otherwise they look the same. The adapter seems to work well for me with EF and EF-S lenses as intended. Focusing with the Canon EOS-M is slightly worse at times but not a major problem. Canon FD and FL lens users should look elsewhere but there is a separate adapter available for them. Recommended.

Compact and light-weight this is a great light "box". It is well made and works very well for transparency viewing. Good price and good value. Strongly recommended.


Canon Canoscan 9000F MK II All-in-One Scanner
Canon Canoscan 9000F MK II All-in-One Scanner
Price: £162.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD SLIDE SCANNER, 27 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well made and bulkier than most Canon Scanners it works very well at document and transparency scans. The software however took a while to master as it seems to be a disjointed suite. However, cracked it in the end. I prefer the earlier scanner software packages that I got with previous Canon models but having upgraded my iMac OS to Mountain Lion as certain (Windows?) parts were no longer supported. Check your OS is handled by this model before buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars CANON NAME - CANON QUALITY, 27 Aug 2014
Bears the Canon name and is made to fit the EF-M 18-55mm f3.5 zoom lens. Preferred this more expensive version to the non-Canon versions as some of these were reported to "not fit properly" or "suffered vignetting" from poor design. Whilst it does seem expensive for just a bit of plastic, is it worth the risk or buying "unknown brands". A safe recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD TV WALL-MOUNT, 27 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well made product and comes with a variety of bolts and washers to fit most TV's. It also has various screws and plugs for the wall fixings. It was easy to assemble and fit. Definitely not rocket science! It actually cost more to post than buy but overall it was still quite cheap for the quality. Recommended.


John Field: The Piano Concertos

5.0 out of 5 stars LIKE CHOPIN - THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS JOHN FIELD PIANO CONCERTO SET, 16 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow! Bought this box set after listening to the MP3 tracks and I was not disappointed. I had not heard of John Field before and had never heard his music played on the radio. Liked what I heard from the excerpts and bought the box set. You get 7 Piano Concertos, 2 Divertissements No. 1 and No. 2, a Rondeau, a Nocture No. 16 and a Quintetto. All on 4 discs. Great recording quality by Chandos and immaculate playing by Micael O'Rourke who is backed by the London Mozart Players under Matthias Bamert. There is too much good about these works to cover in this short review so if you like "tinkling ivories" then buy this set. Very highly recommended.

A great sequel to The Hobbit : An Unexpected Journey. Up to the usual standards. Cannot wait for the final part of the story.
