3.0 out of 5 stars Bush 15" LCD TV.... not bad, 27 Sept. 2005
Amazon finally delivered my Bush LCD15TV006 in a box that was obviously re-packaged. The TV had a small scratch on the front - but after so much hassle ordering, they win, and I will live with it.
The actual TV is not bad and looks good quality. Speakers [Nicam] are good for the price/spec though at high volume go very tinny. The picture is good with average viewing angles apart from looking from a lower level to the screen (annoying as I mounted mine on the wall). Good range of inputs and monitor cable and RGB cables supplied.
The TV has a seperate power unit, but it is fairly small and therefore has a smaller/thinner cable to the actual TV (which looks better if mounting).
The On/Off button looks like it won't last that long and I've already had some troubles turning it off. The remote is small & good looking but cheap quality and a bit unresponsive.
I saw the Crown CTT1506 after ordering this TV - so probably would have gone for that, but the Bush is a good TV at a great price. As a second TV you will struggle to find much better. I haven't tested the PC mode as yet...

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Facing the Congo', 22 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Facing The Congo (Paperback)
This is a very well written book and Jeffrey Tayler's style is very well suited to those people who love to travel. Looking at some other reviews, they criticise the lack of description and 'travel tips' in these types of books - they are greatly missing the point. Travelling, like Jeffrey Tayler does, with little thought prior and a spirit of 'where will I end up', is the stuff great travellers are made of.
A great amount of his book is focused on people he meets and his experiences - this is very refreshing and the book reads like he is telling an old friend of his adventure. Leave the tips and descriptions for Lonley Planet, and read this book for this guy's fantastic ability to describe his rather reckless journey down a massive and dangerous jungle river!
