5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent service, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item arrived very next day despite ordering late the previous day.
Had tried non genuine spools and lines on Flymo 300DX strimmer with minimal success.
Advised to use the genuine parts, seems to work well to date.
One point that i was made aware of by various parties is that the Line becomes brittle if left for extended periods in cold, damp / moist environments.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong packaging, 14 Nov. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been an avid fan of Roots since it was first aired in the UK back in 1977. I was so pleased when Amazon informed me that the complete series box set was now out on DVD having got the lot on VHS.
On receiving the complete series box set (Exclusively for Amazon.co.uk) I was disappointed to find some errors in the packaging and labelling.

Roots: 30th Anniversary series

Some of the episode information on the labelling around the centre of the double sided disc appears to be missing.

Roots: The next Generations

Correct box but the discs themselves were supplied in the presentation cases for the 30th Anniversary series.

Roots: The Gift

This appears to be OK

The actual DVDs for all series have not been viewed as it will take over 40 hours to watch so I cannot comment on quality, compatibility, errors technically or continuity.

Both the original box set and its replacement received from Amazon UK had the same inherent problems which I feel have occurred at the manufacturers.

I am returning both box sets of Roots and hope these gremlins get resolved so I can purchase the box set at a later date. I was hoping to watch Roots over Christmas.

Trying to contact Amazon UK customer services is an ordeal to say the least especially by phone as you end up talking to somebody in the far east who repeat well rehearsed lines in broken English so anything more involved or complicated they cannot deal with. The customer services website is not so flexible either when dealing with more specific enquiries.

It would be nice if there was a friendly English voice in the UK who could handle more specific enquiries rather than a huge organization who hide behind an IT brick wall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anticipated excitement, 22 Aug. 2004
This review is from: Thunderbirds 2 (Audio CD)
I have just ordered both Thunderbirds and Thunderbirds 2 Musical scores CDs by Barry Gray. For years i have been searching for sound recordings of the incidental music used in Thunderbirds to no avail until today. Watching Thunderbirds, the musical accompanyment still makes me tingle and very nostaligic. Can't wait to receive and play them.
