4.0 out of 5 stars Good product, 30 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased these prior to a long drive to the South of France to keep the children entertained. Very good product and great value. Picture is pretty good considering the size of the unit and the sound is ok. Only minor niggle would be that the harness that connects them to the seats is not as good as it could be - straps cover the speakers slightly and have to be undone to change DVD but not a huge problem. Would recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great quality, 30 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheaply made and came with some scratches on the picture surface of some of the coasters. OK for a novelty gift for a big fan I suppose but I probably wouldn't have purchased them if I'd picked them up and looked at them in a shop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant value, 30 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was a bit dubious as to whether this would be as entertaining as some of the other reviews suggest, but I needn't have worried. Played and enjoyed for hours by all the adults in our household over Christmas. It is a little flimsy for younger children, but also a little tricky for them, so I'd say its better for older kids and adults. Excellent value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to imagine why anyone wouldn't enjoy this..., 22 Jan 2012
This is an excellent anthology of contemporary poetry. I hadn't read much poetry for years and hadn't purchased a poetry book for even longer. I received this as a gift and it has reminded just how important poetry can be. There is something for everyone here, and I find myself inspired every time I pick it up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but noisy and a bit impractical, 6 Dec 2009
This hand-held is a something of a triumph of style over function. The antenna style attachment looks quite amusing but actually doesn't work very well - it's awkward to get into corners and the plastic 'skirt' began to disintegrate after about 2 uses. The other attachment is good for getting into tight spaces, but not for much else. It's powerful, quite noisy and relatively convenient to empty. Relative to others it seems to offer a decent usage time in between charges. Attaching the vacumm to the charger is a bit fiddly. For the price, a bit disappointing, but having not owned any other handheld, I've little to compare it with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great camera, poor software, 18 Feb 2009
This is a fantastic camcorder. Very easy to use straight from the box with great results. I was very impressed with both sound and image quality. The software however is pretty unimpressive - very slow and user-unfriendly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, 18 Feb 2009
This is a basic clock radio that offers excellent value. Its well built, comes with a 2 year guarantee and has a range of useful features (two alarms, auto time setting and power failure protection and an excellent automatic dimmer). The reception and sound quality are perfectly adequate for anyone who doesn't intend on listening to the radio for long periods of time. I'd be surprised is there a better option for 20!

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but poorly written, 18 Feb 2009
From the perspective of someone who knows little of the jargon used by web developers, this was an interesting read, if a little frustrating. Whilst many of the interviewees seemed to contribute little of real worth, the book did draw my attention to a whole range of concepts and approaches that I was previously unaware of (wikipedia filled in the gaps!). I do think that Jones could have put a little more effort in. It's basically just a series of interview scripts, some pretty sketchy summaries and a surprising number of misprints and grammatical errors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply superb, 18 Feb 2009
I can't imagine that anyone who knew what they were buying would be disappointed. Fantastic value and perfectly good quality. I'm enjoying watching them second time around as much as my 22 month old daughter is for the first time.
