3.0 out of 5 stars Frustrated, 25 Oct 2012
I'm frustrated with my first Amazon Fire HD Kindle as most of the stores I go to are in dollars, though I'm in the UK. This means that trying to download anything, including free games, fails. My adverts are also US-based as well. The book store is in pounds sterling though.

Other comments:

Cute, minimalist packaging

I bought it with the intention of it being a combi media-player and book reader.... it feels a little heavy!

Overall, it seems like a well built player which works well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed - it ended too soon!, 29 Sep 2012
I've read all the books in the series - I initially struggled to get into the very first one, but since then they've all flown by. I haven't been aware of any variance in the quality of the books - each one has been great!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good - Paid for itself, 7 Aug 2012
This review is from: 4 Bike Cycle Carrier (Misc.)
We've owned a 4 bike carrier for just over a year now, and I've used it about six times for trips to Devon, Centreparcs, France, and Holland successfully! It does take some practice, but you can get 2 adult and 2 child bikes on safely and securely - it's definitely something that you get better the more you do. The videos on their website are helpful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Truly Awful - throw your money in the bin instead, 2 Aug 2012

This is a piece of cardboard, and some threads. Some blu tack too. Deceptive and a waste of time. AVOID.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 12 July 2012
I used to have a Ring MP75 inverter to supply power in the car via the lighter socket - it worked fine, but overheated quickly. And died permanently just as quickly.

This car inverter has a fan inside, and vents, so stays cool in my experience - which is great! The fan isn't silent though, so can be disconcerting.

It also comes with a handy USB slot for charging too.

The one thing it doesn't do that the MP75 does is that the bit that goes into the lighter socket is fixed - the MP75 allows you to angle it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job great!, 24 Jun 2012
It does take a Eureka moment to figure out how to use the adaptor/nozzle, but other than that this is a great little pump! (actually, it's not that small). Now, for the first time ever, all my bike tyres are pumped up properly!

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work out for me..., 12 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The three main parts fit nicely together - the rack, and the two triangular pieces that go down either side to the wheel axles. But things don't go smoothly from there - the instructions are poor, pieces are missing, and - for my bike at least - it doesn't attach firmly to the bike under the saddle post or anything. Now unused because it kept shearing the nuts that tried to connect it to the post.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, 26 Jan 2012
Didn't take long to setup with our Panasonic TV, but it took a little longer with the PS3 as we had to change settings in the console.

For some reason our unit came with a continental shaver-plug lead, hard-wired in. The manual refers to a UK moulded plug.

And yes, the remote control is too small, and flimsy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for the price, 25 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do wear these everytime I cycle in wet weather, so that's my endorsement!

Pros:

- comes with a drawstring bag to keep them in, and - surprisingly - I can get them easily back in the bag!

Cons:

- donesn't fit over my work shoes, so I have to take my shoes off first!

- they are quite thin, so it doesn't feel too comfortable.
