Hoyle Table Games - Platinum (PC CD)
Hoyle Table Games - Platinum (PC CD)
Offered by Satsumo
Price: 4.02

1.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worth money because it's so cheap.

Purchased for the backgammon and it's useless.

Irritating format, USA based, childish, and misses the point. Think what the USA do to "Alice in Wonderland" and "Winnie the Pooh" and you have it.

1.0 out of 5 stars WHICH IS IT SDHC or SDXC ?, 27 Mar 2014
The description is SDHC, as of 2014:03:27 the Wikipedia article on SD cards states that SDHC is limited to 64GB..

The picture shows SDXC, these according to the Wikipedia article have larger capacities.

Regatta TRA363 Adults Whitehaven Waterproof & Breathable Insulated Jacket Black S

3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased December 2012.
Put in the bin March 2014.

Negligible insulation, none in the pockets.
Pocket lining ripped in three months.
First zip stopped working after six months, others followed, now only two working not very well.

Not abused, unless wearing the garment constitutes abuse.

Replacement arrived today, 3X price.


The Seven Lamps of Architecture: With Illustrations Drawn By the Author (Classic Reprint)
The Seven Lamps of Architecture: With Illustrations Drawn By the Author (Classic Reprint)
by John Ruskin
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.84

1.0 out of 5 stars Classic reprints A LIE., 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book I received is not, as the name of the "printers" would suggest, a reprint.

It is a photocopy of a library copy of an early edition of the book, with all the handwritten notes made by various borrowers down the years "reprinted" on many pages.

It is available on the Internet FOC.

Save your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beaux Arts Trio, enough said, 11 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
***** for the musical performance.
One star removed for Decca's sloppy production.

My musical knowledge is inadequate for the purposes of conveying to readers why the Beaux Arts Trio versions
are superior, but my auditory equipment can detect it.

However the CD I received has a fault, the tracks it contains are as per the sleeve and Amazon's contents list. The track descriptions stored on the CD are wrong. The first thing I do with any new CD is to copy it twice, one for the Hi-Fi and one for the car CD player. When played the equipment advises me that it is playing a different trio/movement to that actually being reproduced, a minor irritation, but still an irritation.

Another reviewer referred to the violinist as Isidore Cohen, on the sleeve I have the violinist is Daniel Guilet.

4.0 out of 5 stars YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, 19 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well engineered and looks as though it will last for years, in contrast to cheap alternatives I have previously bought from Amazon which failed almost at once*.

Only four stars due to the lack of a lanyard attachment aperture, there is an aperture which I have used but the device does not then close completely.

* AND WHICH AMAZON IS STILL SELLING DESPITE HUNDREDS OF POOR REVIEWS AND FAILURE REPORTS - WAKE UP AMAZON.

Update Jan 2014
Bought another one, first item still performing faultlessly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Now select your second book on digital photography., 10 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Basic introduction, clearly written, plenty of colour pictures, worth the money.

Minimal technical information, not enough to enable me to select the best camera for my purposes/budget.

Limited advice on taking photographs.

Too much information on how to digitally correct defective pictures, defects which would probably not have occurred if the camera selection and photography sections had been more comprehensive.

There is more free, and technically advanced, advice on the internet.

I shall now be buying a more advanced book to supplement this one.

Transcend High-Speed All-in-1 USB Card Reader - Black
Transcend High-Speed All-in-1 USB Card Reader - Black
Offered by mopodo-uk
Price: 4.57

1.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes you don't get what you pay for, 1 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Problems with cheaper card readers, so I bought a "quality" item.

Similar problems to other reviewers, what you actually get seems to depend on the day of the week.

The part I received is NOT fully USB compliant as claimed, it blocks neighbouring USB sockets, which a USB device
should not do, It did not even have a USB logo.

I could live with the above but, six days after receipt, the plug is loose and will, I believe, become detached if used again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Earlier complainants were right, 14 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One failed after three uses. Dare not use the others.

Who reads customer reviews for items this cheap ?

Well not me, until it failed and I discovered zillions of previous problems.

Well not Amazon either because they are still selling an item they know is defective.

Update 2012.06.16 Needed to backup, second one failed, noticed the heat reported by other critics.
Totally US.

Update 2012.06.22 Report from friend who received the other two parts [with appropriate warnings], both failed.

Update 2012-07-08 Email from Amazon "recommendations" including this part. READ THE REVIEWS AMAZON.
