5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product which works really well, 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If like me you have more than one PC and laptop. Then there are occasions where you want to utilise you principal Computer Monitor and connect multiple devices.
This box enables you to connect a further two devices whether they're computers or a DVD/Bluray player to your TV/Monitor giving you total flexibility of your display resources.

The build quality is good and its the size of a cigarette packet so it is discrete enough to hide behind your screen

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Quality Product, allowing a great viewing position., 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I accept many people would baulk at the idea of paying out a large additional cost to mount a Computer Monitor.
The positive view is it gives you the ultimate viewing angle for your screen. No more craning your neck to see the screen; you can move it to any comfortable position, even have a TV watching position as well as the more formal computer desk position, obviously it depends on the location; etc.

The technicalities of the arm, it is well made, finished in polished aluminium (so looks good!) including all the fixing mounts, whether you screw it to the wall or just use the bracket to mount it to a desk.

I use a 24" Acer LED/LCD Monitor and it works really well. where as a monitor placed on its inclusive foot only offers a 90 degree view, but this is very inflexible as you have to position yourself to the monitor. Using an arm you chose how and where you sit,whilst moving the monitor to where you can comfortably view it.

Finally I could see because of the manufacturing quality that it should last a lifetime, so over the life of a few monitors the relative cost comes down to become a good investment.

These adaptors are a useful addition to any Audio Engineers arsenal of kit. They are well made, manufactured from hard wearing steel nickel plated so very durable, would easily withstand a modicum of abuse during use

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality lead, 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have found through experience that the idea of spending as little as possible doesn't always pay as the cheaper quality leads often fall apart. So my advice is a pay more as professional leads will last a lifetime, some even come with a limited lifetime guarantee.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating book, a must have for any coffee table, 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Everest (Hardcover)
If like me you became aware of this magnificent feat when you were young, then this book takes you back in time and pictorially gives you a flavour of being a part of this epic expedition. The book itself is large and fairly heavy to lift, but that aside; the quality of the pictures are excellent and along with a description of how the conquest was achieved. It would be a worthy book to add to ones library.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't do as it said on the tin, 8 Jun 2012
I found this switch very susceptible to levels as a previous reviewer remarked.
It didn't work with my PS3 but it did with my Panasonic DVD player.
May well be a batch problem, but just beware this may not be the solution you are looking for.
I have gone down the active switch route as this is not restricted by signal level in.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 23 Oct 2010
I except the source material for this DVD is over 30years old.
But the production values of this DVD is very poor.

It appears to be a BBC programme which has been recorded from Japanese TV,
so there are Japanese captions permanently present on the screen.

I don't mind that, however the DVD authoring is absolutely dreadful, instead
of fading between tracks they cut often part the way through the intro to
a song.

So to summarise as a historical performance it is very interesting, but
as entertainment it is a waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Magic, 3 Sep 2009
If you saw James May's programme about the Apollo missions, then you'll remember he interviewed Alan Bean.
In the background you saw examples of his fantastic paintings. This book contains a great number of them.
They are beautifully reproduced in this book along with contributions from notable art critics and Eugene Kranz
shift leader in Mission Control during many of the important Apollo missions.

If you are interested in the Apollo Missions then this is a book for you.
It would look good on any coffee table.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for an Introduction to Audio Post Production, 31 Aug 2009
Jay Rose has written a number of books covering audio.
This book is the second edition which is now published by
Focal Press the number one publisher of books about media technique and technology.

This book is very good because it assumes no prior knowledge so if you are starting
out in the field of TV sound production then this is worth adding to your book collection.
The book deals with planning,equipment and actual technique.

It is based on American practice, don't let this deter you as most of the skills and techniques he talks about apply to current Audio Post Production practice throughout the world.

Its also written in a easy to read style.

You also get an accompanying CD which Audibly illustrates what he is describing
in the text, for example editing audio.

This is a restoration of the original film presentation.

This DVD is one to add to your collection
