5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 30 July 2013

Does everything. 3D, Audio Return, Remote Control and looks neat hooked up to my system! Perfect lead for connecting a good Blu-ray player to a TV.

Great lead that is cheap and cheerful for most things but please note that this cable does NOT work with Audio Return or any remote control functionality of either a TV or AV receiver as two examples.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work, 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sadly the cable doesn't work as intended for it's spec. After spending 10 or more hours trying to trace the problem I found that it was the cable not allowing single pass-through of devices connected to my AV receiver to my TV.

I wont go into what combination of settings almost worked as it's just a waste of time but lets just say that even using the cable directly between an XBOX 360 and LED TV resulting an flickering, colour bleed and very obvious artifacts on screen.

It's a shame because the build quality of this cable is amazing and by far the best I have seen. I suspect it's a manufacturing fault with this batch and not just a bad product. You may find the same cable works at shorter lengths.

I contacted the seller and they was very friendly and seemed aware of the issue. So I will be sending back for a refund which they promised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet cable, 30 July 2013

Cheap and does the trick perfectly. I have two high end Yamaha subs both of which are now using these cables and found they deliver a solid signal even at the 10m Length.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have boxset, 30 July 2013

Loved the original series but this modernises things a little with somewhat more sinister tails with a bunch of more recognisable actors to boot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overall player, 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Prompt delivery and arrived in good condition despite being second hand.

Player is packed with useful features, excellent picture and sound quality.

My only issue with the player is that it's DLNA functionality doesn't seem to work with a large portion of MKV files I had tried even though rather oddly, those same files work fine through it's network share feature :-S Likewise those same files will play perfectly fine via my TVs DLNA connection so I can only assume the players firmware (the most recent) is not very good.

So for people hoping to use this as a media server be warned if using MKV video and you don't have an alternative means to stream media.


5 Star Drywipe Board Lightweight with Fixing Kit and Pen Tray W1800xH1200mm
5 Star Drywipe Board Lightweight with Fixing Kit and Pen Tray W1800xH1200mm

4.0 out of 5 stars Massive Board That Works Well, 22 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great board which mounts very easily and it's huge. I use it every day as a web designer when developing sites. It also has a very light grid on one side which can come in useful.

Some concerns when ordering that others should be aware of.

Surprisingly like many others, mine arrived quickly but damaged. Box was grubby and seemed very old amounting to little more than a single sheet wrapped around with sides wide open. There was also some missing parts probably because the box is not entirely secure. Egg sized whole going directly through the board which I sent a photo of to the seller.

They were very accommodating and dispatched a new one via a different courier. The second one arrived quickly and in perfect condition. It seemed the courier and or factory where these come from was to blame for manhandling the goods but these do need far better packaging considering the size and very glass like nature of the surface. I would expect them to use maybe 2 very thick slices of styrofoam on either side to prevent twisting or damage if dropped.

Anyway I give 4 stars because the product is very good and the seller responsive but I would highly suggest that if ordering a large version that you at least contact the seller first and make sure they use a reliable courier who WILL take care of their packages.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, with some nice new concepts, 1 Nov. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I admit the book has a few odd ideas presented to us. Flying facehuggers, "rolling" aliens but none of which are too outlandish or dragged out to such a level that distracts from what is a very good story. It brings us a a few new and unexplored areas of the alien universe, The characters for the most part are believable and the story explains a couple things we may have wondered about. It also presents some new technology, that fits well within an alien story. A book that's very much about human survival, instinct and our selfishness. It's not prefect but I highly recommend this book to anyone who's not a hardcore purist and wants something meaningful.
