Theft Of Swords: The Riyria Revelations
Theft Of Swords: The Riyria Revelations
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Not original but entertaining nonetheless, 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The characterisation was good. The plot was telegraphed a little too obviously but romped along with an infectious enthusiasm. The author deliberately relies on the extensive use of clichés to reduce the amount of explanation necessary, which, in general works well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great but only if you have read Neverwhere, 9 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent short story but not really stand alone. Unlikely to mean much without having read Never where where the characters and setting are developed. This is a further adventure in London Under which takes place shortly after the main story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, 29 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow what a difference. I added this drive as the main drive with my old HDD as secondary for data. I followed th instructions and it worked like a charm. The computer is so much faster. Boots like a dream and as a bonus because there is not much on the old five it is much quieter. The best upgrade I ever made!

4.0 out of 5 stars Print-tastic, 26 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter is doing exams, and consequently printing reams of paper. The replacement ink for our existing inkjet printer was costing a fortune, so I bought this. It has saved us a fortune! In addition, it is much faster than an inkjet, and no worries about smudging or the ink running if the paper gets wet. My only niggles are that it is not the most user friendly device to install, so that took longer than I would like, and sometimes you need to wake it up manually to start the print process. However, on balance excellent!

4.0 out of 5 stars On Fire!, 26 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This device is excellent value for money. It plays movies (Amazon Prime!), music, works as kindle (I still prefer the e-ink for reading but this is useable), plays basic games, does web browsing, recieves e-mail. In fact everything I need from a tablet.. Battery life could be better, but it will allow a feature length film to be watched and still keep going for another hour or so. I had read reviews complaining about being locked in to Amazon's walled garden, and I was concerned. However, so far, I have had no need or desire for anything outside the wall. Not really a problem with this device, but Amazon Prime only works in the country that your Amazon account is in. So travelling in Europe is an annoyance!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just in case!, 26 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Fire 7 probably does not need a case, but I like to be able to cover the screen and throw it in my bag. Over several weeks of travelling this case has done the trick. It protects the Fire, it functions as a stand, it turns the tablet off when you close the lid. It fits securely, but leaves access to all the buttons. It even has a nice non-slip grippy feel to the case. Perfect.

3.0 out of 5 stars Functional but fussy, 7 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does not really work the way it should. The overcentre mechanism which creates the suction is not long enough, so it is necessary to fiddle with it to make it stick to the bult. Obviously not ideal when standing on a chair trying to reach a bulb!
It is better than the "tool" provided with the light installation, but not as good as I had hoped, or as good as it could be.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fire 7" is not the same as the Fire HD 7", 7 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Certainly my fault, but to avoid repetition of my mistake the Fire 7" is not the same as the Fire HD 7". This case is definitely for the "HD" version, the buttons and camera are in a different place so although the Fire 7" just about fits into this case, it is not usable. Having got that off my chest. The product is a solid well built case which would other wise be just what I was looking for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Leaky but fixable. Otherwise great., 29 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product is as described and works well give a gentle rain or a jet as required. Several other customer have noted that it can leak where the head is connected to the hose. I found this as well. Closer inspection showed that the plastic moulding is badly formed and once I had used a file to remove the excess plastic at the connector the leak was fixed.

1.0 out of 5 stars So slow that its unusable, 14 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: STV Player (App)
So slow that its unusable. My internet connection is not great but everything else works well enough. Most annoying is that the adverts take even longer to load than the program and there is no way to skip them. I shan't be using it again
