South Pacific [DVD]
South Pacific [DVD]
Dvd ~ Benedict Cumberbatch
Price: £6.40

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent informative DVD, 6 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: South Pacific [DVD] (DVD)
DVD's from the BBC tend to be very good. This is an excellent mix of wildlife, culture, geography etc. set a reasonable level. The quality of pictures is good and covers a vast, interesting region of the world. Interestingly Hawaii is included which is actually roughly 15 degrees north of the equator!!

5.0 out of 5 stars great piece of kit, 6 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great piece of kit. Decided on panasonic since we can use the viera link with our 32" HD TV (panasonic) bought a couple of yrs ago.
As a DVD player it works smoothly and the remote control operates on the touch of a button
(as oppose to the cheap player it replaces which always had to think about an action, or not do the action, or hang up)

The sound quality is excellent, especially when fed through our pioneer amp.

Have only received a couple of days ago so many features not tried yet....manual is large and detailed, but also simple to follow.

HDD works well and has recorded everything so far via the timer- playback is also of a high quality. The direct TV through viera link works also.

In summary so far- maybe not the cheapest, but works well, relatively simple to use, and has a number of excellent features. However amamzon seems to be a bit cheaper than the manufacturers site.


Spear & Jackson Neverbend Professional Digging Spade
Spear & Jackson Neverbend Professional Digging Spade
Price: £34.49

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent gardening tool, 26 April 2012
I purchased this spade about 5 yrs ago having had a couple of cheaper 2 piece (welded) spades failed (one bent and the other cracked). I do a lot of digging in heavy wet soil in W. Scotland - potatoes, planting hedges etc. and this spade is perfect for these big jobs- it feels like it will last a lifetime. The spade is heavy (too heavy for my wife- she uses a light stainless steel) and may not be necessary for light border/compost type work.

Incidently I also purchased the corresponding fork at the same time - which is similar - heavy duty, forged from 1 piece of steel and never failed so far, but again too heavy for my wife.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent simple car CD player, 6 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This player was easily fitted into my car and the sound is excellent. I also like the fact that it is simple and easy to use despite having a number of functions. Also a bonus is FM/MW and LW bands for the radio.
It does not have a input on the front for mp3 player, but an optional cable can be purchased with would plug in the back and leave a headphone socket avaliable to be plugged into the required player.

would recommend, although sony etc. offer more functions for less money, this unit has a smooth balanced sound, easy to use and is fairly suttle to look at, not having lots of flashing colours that other players seem to have.

4.0 out of 5 stars great CD, but not as good as tape, 6 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Back On The Road (Audio CD)
I bought this CD to replace the double tape set I had from the 80's. It contains a single CD and is a distillation of the tape set. The music however is excellent and highly recommended for the good mix of artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars wealth of information, 20 Sep 2010

This book is a gem of kn owledge. Bought as a present for someone very interested in Egyptian, this has wider coverage than many other texts which concentrate on specific parts. Therefore very useful for a detailed overview.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent value for knowledge, 20 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This dictionary was bought for my wife's birthday. She is delighted and we have already spent time pondering some of the additional info. contained within such as word origins etc.

I would say the 2 volumes are a bargain for the current £53, and still reasonable value at the list price, considering the wealth of info within.

4.0 out of 5 stars good dictionary, 20 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a travel dictionary. good coverage of words. obviously being so small and fitting words in means brief definitions. However any I have refered to are clear and concise.
only down point is soft plastic cover, but at the low price what can yuo expect.

overall a good book


Fool's Paradise
Fool's Paradise
Price: £12.46

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but not wonderful, 27 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fool's Paradise (Audio CD)
Maybe if you are a real die hard lemmy fan you will love this. I have seen motorhead, dead men walking (with Slim Jim) so was expecting a bit more. sounds pretty average- maybe some of the songs are not that well suited to this interpretation.
