3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Story, 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Executive Air (Kindle Edition)
This is a good effort at an entertaining story. The author's background in corporate management and achievement of an MBA left me somewhat surprised to find so many spelling and grammatical errors. However, this only detracted slightly from the entertainment. Hopefully, his Master of Arts (Writing) studies will sort this out in time for his next book, which I will seek out.

5.0 out of 5 stars How do they do it for the price?, 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't know what a terabyte was until I researched this device. I now know I am unlikely to fill up the disk! I wanted a new recorder so that my existing Humax Foxsat PVR can be left in our holiday home. I also wanted to be able to record the additional freeview programmes not available on freesat. Working on the basis that if it seems too good to be true it probably is, I took some time before ordering this unit from Bentham Ltd for 99.99. So far I needn't have worried. The unit arrived very soon after ordering and was well packaged. Setup was fairly straightforward and there is no discernible difference between the unit picture quality and that of the TV, without the unit (which is excellent) Functions are similar to the Humax but there are a few differences, some of which have been mentioned in other reviews. My view is that this is a different unit and had I been used to it first, the Humax functionality would have taken some getting used to. It did take a little time to discover the delete function, but after I read about the many shortcuts through the white button I realised what a good idea this is. The Humax doesn't have the picture in picture function, which I am sure sports fans will use, but the Digital Stream doesn't have the option to select "watch" so that the channel switches to a scheduled programme when it starts (at least, I haven't found that function). This is only a minor issue and I can easily live with it. Once or twice the unit has frozen, but has continued to function normally after about a minute. On the first occasion I rebooted, but I think a little patience would have avoided the need for this. Reserved programmes have recorded perfectly, every time, and the playback functions are everything I am used to. When a programme starts to be recorded, the unit displays a message to this effect, which is a little annoying and I can't seem to be able to turn this off. However, pressing exit will remove the message immediately. In conclusion, this is a quality unit with full functionality and a massive memory for a staggering price from Bentham Ltd.

This review is from: 2 x Eiger Tyres x 2 Tubes (Misc.)
These tyres and tubes are ideal for my need, which is general use on roads and tracks. I purchased from Rutland Water Cycling and delivery was very fast. The packaging was novel - tubes attached to tyres and an address label attached to them. However, our postman wasn't the least bit concerned and the fast delivery proves it's an effective method. I shall be ordering another pair very soon - yes, for this price you get two tyres - amazing value.

The item I received was of good quality and just as expected. The thickness of the skin was even and strong enough to be stretched over a banjolele body

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read, 13 Jan 2014

This story kept me intrigued and looking forward to by nightly read. It was just spooky enough without rewarding me with a sleepless night. It is beautifully written in some parts but in others the writing style jarred a little, although not enough to be a problem. Martyn is clearly an accomplished writer with a fertile imagination. I found myself easily visualising scenes through his descriptive writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!, 3 Dec 2013
I really didn't want this to end. I am a fan of Michael Wright, so I expected his treatment of this true story to be handled with sensitivity and humour. I was not disappointed. Like Michael, I also live in France and often see the roadside monuments to the Resistants, usually where they were gunned down. The story illuminated this tragic era of our recent history and, in my opinion, provides a vivid picture of the heroes and cowards who found themselves handling this turbulent time in their own ways. The story alone is breathtaking. Add to this Michael Wrights skilful writing and you have a true story that reads like an action and adventure novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 27 Oct 2013

This product is everything I hoped for. The narrow frame makes this a discrete TV with a picture that fully fills the screen. Although the same size as the one it replaced, this picture does seem larger. Comments regarding the sound quality did concern me but shouldn't have done. If you are an audiophile, wanting high quality sound, then an additional sound system will be required. However, the sound is perfectly good for everyday viewing. One other pleasant surprise is that it doesn't have one of those annoyingly distracting bright blue or red lights on the panel - why do some manufacturers do that? The full HD specification means that the built in freeview receiver will supply HD from your aerial. It also operates flawlessly with our Humax HDR satellite receiver. I purchased from Hughes Direct who provided a faultless service.

This review is from: PRYCKLE (Kindle Edition)
What a fabulous read. I realise now that I had become somewhat jaded in my reading. The same old subjects just being recycled to sell a book. And then along came Pryckle. The first few pages offered such promise that I was a little disappointed when the account of the battle seemed to take the story in a different direction. I must admit to feeling that the author was indulging his clear knowledge and passion for this era. I speed read this section, while still managing to pick up the key characters that would appear later. Once we got back to the main plot I was riveted. This is a stunningly unusual plot, told by a master storyteller. The multiple layers of the story didn't once catch out this writer - his attention to detail is faultless. The story is so well told that I almost believed it could have happened. And just looking at our world, the malevolence is almost certainly still out there........
