5.0 out of 5 stars Does as expected, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works fine with the Kindle Fire HD. Video is at a lower resolution (this is expected due to the vga format) so where possible you should use a hdmi connection. If you have any problems with the Kindle Fire HD then rotate it and your output device will probably sort itself out. My TV coped fine (via VGA input) and preserved aspect ratio. Tried on a 4:3 pc monitor but the landscape image was resized (ie no letterbox) but that could be due to my archaic monitor. Good to have the jack audio connection via the hdmi output to avoid extra cables from the Kindle to make it easier to handle. Audio comes through fine. Well worth getting if you intend to use your kindle fire hd for presentations.

Good Micro HDMI to HDMI cable ideal for putting Kindle Fire HD onto TV. Carries both video and audio. Long cable ideal for living room use where you can comfortably sit wherever you like.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Good, the Bad and the Ugly - Only buy if in desperate need, 12 Jun 2010
Summary: The recordings for Simply Soundtracks are not much good. Most of the tracks aren't originals, or recorded with lesser known orchestras/production, or worse are synth/computer music. If you do wish to buy look for a renowned orchestra compilation, or consider the 4 disc set instead, at least you get more for your money! Disc 1 is stronger in terms of quality than Disc 2.

The good: You'll have bought this disc because there are some soundtracks you just can't find anywhere else, and for that reason these sorts of compilations work. The westerns (Disc 1, tracks 1-6) come across very well and ;authentic in sound. The BBC orchestra tracks (Disc 1, tracks 9, 13, 14, 16, 16, Disc 2, track 11) are great incarnations of the scores. Platoon, Carmin Burana, Gallipoli, Blade Runner, and the cover of Mad World redeems Disc 2.

The bad: A handful of the recordings have mixed too 'close', in that the orchestra presents itself flat at the front of the listening experience, rather than creating a round, deep, landscape of sound. Particularly noticable with drums in the James Bond tracks.

The ugly: Watch out for the dreadful production of the computer/synth music, which really drags Disc 2 down: Mission Impossible (Disc 1), Saving Private Ryan (particularly synthy), Jaws, X Files, Star Trek (awful brass), Psycho, Jurrasic Park (which at 2mins is just noise).
