5.0 out of 5 stars This is an exceptionally good album that I find myself playing at least twice ..., 16 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an exceptionally good album that I find myself playing at least twice a week. There are a number of very interesting alternative cuts and a wealth of more familiar ones; my favorite tracks are the live recordings from the BBC concert included on disc 2. I met Ronnie in the 70s when I helped to pack away his band's equipment after a student gig. I just carried a few things but you'd have thought that I'd given him a diamond ring! He was so warm and genuine in his thanks - what a wonderful talented little guy and what a loss to music his early passing was.

Classic case of 'does what it says on the can'. Very good value given that the single unit retail shop price of very similar products of no better quality exceeds the price of this pack of 12 of them. The delivery window was quite long and they arrived right at the end of it, but it was well worth the wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Brilliance of Douglas Adams, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This BBC series managed to capture the essence of the laid-back writing style of the late Douglas Adams. How can understated and overt go hand in hand? This aspect of the author's writing is magically transferred to the screen to produce a thoroughly enjoyable feast for any Adams fan.

Okay, so the special effects are more 'Micky Mouse' than Spielberg, but that's part of the fun in this parabolic tale that will make you laugh and make you think about the parallels it draws. Highlighted by an excellent cast and the superb narration by Peter Jones this BBC version has absolutely everything that the more recent 'Big Screen' version sadly lacked.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value - Great Shave, 19 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a Phillips Aqua Touch AT 896 and have considered it to be a particularly good wet/dry shaver although (of course) the closeness of the shave does deteriorate with a couple of years of use no matter how well the shaver is maintained. When it came time to replace the heads (2 years) I decided to take a chance on these replacement heads despite some reservation about what to expect from a product priced at less than half the price of the official Phillips spares. It was one of the best buying decisions that I have ever made; the quality of the product, the closeness and comfort of the shave and the ease of the replacement process are all '5 star'. If you add the great 'value-for-money' into the equation then you'll understand why I recommend this product to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute 'classic', 10 Sept. 2013

This review is from: Handyman Blues (MP3 Download)
This is a very gentle and mellow song that's full to the brim with Billy's self-effacing humor. It's a real classic of the more accessible side of his repertoire (where he uses his voice to best effect) and is set to an emotive backing featuring very moving slide guitar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Low Priced Good Quality Solution, 25 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very impressed both by the quality of the product and by the speed at which it was supplied (it arrived on the day that I was expecting it to be dispatched).

The 'unit to Laptop' cable seems less inclined to twist and bunch than many that I have seen and other than the brand name, there is no great difference in the quality and the appearance of this productand and the acer original. The adaptor is supplied with an appropriate unit to mains lead.

I have no reason to expect that it will be any less durable than the Acer 'Lite' originals (of which I have already had 2. Like the original manufacturer's adaptor the unit has a green neon indicating 'through-power-on' (an essential feature absent on many 'bargain-price' replacement units) and powers-up imediately.

The big difference that you will notice is the price. This is less than a third of the price quoted to me by many acer spares suppliers. A low-priced but good quality solution to that dreaded problem of laptop power-adaptor failure.
