1.0 out of 5 stars HORRID SOUND, KEEP AWAY FROM THEM!, 16 Jun. 2013
These are the most awful headphones i have ever used.
They cost me 25 Euros, so i awaited for something special.
The sound is so terrible that can't be described.
All types of sound distortion can be heard. Terrible hissing sounds threaten to damage your hearing.
I want to turn them back, but what can i say to the seller, that THEY SOUND SO AWFUL!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best!, 9 May 2013
I agree with the previous ones, it is clearly the best recording of the opera to be found.
Excellent cast and orchestra.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worn out after only 3 months, didn't worth the money., 13 Jun. 2012
After only 3 months of use the fabric started to wear out at some points, unbelievable for the price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Outdated and expensive., 13 Mar. 2011
Payed a lot of money to buy this book and it was a disappointment.
I got this book only because it is considered by some to be the best on the subject.
It was first published in 1991 and the last print was in 2002.
Maybe it was an excellent book for the time it was first published, but it looks pretty much outdated today.
Includes few color photos, but mostly sketches that are not helpful at all.
I noticed that there is only one photograph of a tropical passion flower!
There is also a problem with the names of certain genus and species that have changed, as the old names are used.
Search for more recent publications on the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book., 8 July 2010
This is an excellent book on the subject, thinking of how large and complex this genus of plants is.
The book contains many color photographs and each species and variety is described in detail, so that recognition is easier.
Also there are references in the different characteristics between species and varieties that are usually confused.
My only problem is that in glossary the references of the main article about a species/ variety/ hybrid do not appear in bold letters.

3.0 out of 5 stars What about airplane icon?, 12 July 2009
Just purchased it for an international trip.
I admire the excellent quality of this brand very much, but i couldn' t imagine how heavy this bag is.
It weighs 3.7 kgr!!! Only with my 17" laptop inside, it weighs 6 kgr!
The dimensions are close to the limits of airplane passenger handbag, but the real problem is the weight.
Usual maximum weight accepted is 8 kgr, so i have only 2 kilos for my photographic equipment. Very little. I think of returning it and buy other accessories i need. With the same money i could buy a mini notebook. I have a smaller Lowepro to do my job.

A very interesting book, but too brief.
I expected more on advanced processing techniques, that was the reason that i got it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on subject., 1 Mar. 2009
This is the best book available on the subject.
It includes everything anyone must know when going to observe a total eclipse. The 3rd edition has new stunning photographs from the latest total eclipses and detailed information about the forthcoming ones. I own the second edition too, but i also got this one immediately, as an update.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book., 27 Oct. 2008
This review is from: House Plants (Paperback)
This book made me really love indoor plants!
It includes a great variety of plants, with very good descriptions and care instructions. But most of all it has excellent photographs that show the real beauty of the plants. Also, a best value for money.
