5.0 out of 5 stars For somebody who just wants a good basic TV this is ideal, 21 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For somebody who just wants a good basic TV this is ideal. The picture quality is excellent as is the sound - despite some reviews criticising it. I have a hearing problem and the sound is clear with a more than adequate volume range. There are some minor areas of concern but not sufficient to reduce a five star rating. The Remote Control is smaller than my previous SONY TV but is manageable with care. The main complaint is that the Instruction 'Manual' is limited in the extreme. fortunately the TV virtually sets itself up when power is turned on the first time. One very useful feature is the 'reset' command which is handy if you have dabbled a little too far in the settings - just select it and the TV reverts to the Factory settings

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Great, 8 Nov 2012

This one certainly ticks all the boxes for me. If you can listen to this without a lump in the throat you need to call the undertaker!

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 11 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivered on time. Delivery was rapid and the packaging good. The Unit works well for most applications. However unless you have access to super accurate calibration facilities it wouldn't be capable of total accuracy. However having said that I have carried out some comparison measurements with my old Manual Vernier Caliper and so far the indications are that, as delivered, it measures the same.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not easy assembly, 23 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Putting together the base is easy. However fitting the Seat Squab and the Back Rest requires a bit of brute force and ingenuity. The Back Rest is in forced contact with the Seat Squab which makes inserting the retaining bolts difficult. It is necessary to insert the top bolts of the Back Rest first then rotate the Back using a fair bit of force until the 2 lower bolts can be inserted. This puts a strain on the Bolt and insert threads so tightening them needs caution to avoid stripping the threads. This somewhat dampens appreciation of the comfort of the chair when you have had to sweat a bit to assemble it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bit Flimsy, 23 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Card Shuffler (1-2 Deck Version)
It does what it says on the tin. However there are 3 features that limit it's usefulness. Firstly it is made from fairly flimsy plastic and would not take much of an impact to cause significant damage. Secondly, in spite of this being an advertised function, it struggles, and frequently fails to shuffle a whole pack at once. Cards need to be fed in at about one third of a pack at a time. Of course this leaves you still having to carry out a basic shuffle before the cards are used. The advertised '2 pack' shuffle simply doesn't work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Music but strange CD, 23 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There can be no question as to the quality of the Music. However there are issues with the Software that created it. Apart from adding this CD to my Library I also intended to use it to rehearse at home for a forthcoming performance with my Choral Society. I usually listen via Microsoft Windows Media Player as my Family do not like Choral Music and my study provides a suitable medium. I found that it will not play on Media Player nor on anything other than a dedicated CD Player. It is also not able to be transferred to an MP3 or IPod for personal, and temporary, use only. Whilst the producers may think that copy protection is needed it seems to go too far by blocking the ability to play via a PC. I think this needs to be clearly spelt out by Amazon in its advertising. Only this feature prevents me from awarding 5 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to expectations, 18 July 2011

This review is from: Siempre (Audio CD)
Previous recordings by Il Divo have been excellent. This one is, however, rather dull. The singing is of course superb. However the choice of songs is very poor and frankly tedious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Print Size, 18 July 2011

As a Bible there is really nothing to criticise. However you do need to be aware that the print size is extremely small. This is not mentioned in the Amazon description and could present a problem to anybody with even a moderate degree of eye problem

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Device, 16 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very effective and compact. Seems able to pick up particles that my (nearly) £300 Dyson has problems with. Haven't yet tried battery life but it does seem to lose charge when not being used. One deficiency is that there is no indication (light) that a charge cycle is complete so I am probably leaving it on charge longer than necessary

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, 19 Feb 2011

Extremely good value for what you get. The overall tone and sensitivity is extremely good - in many respects far better than the more expensive Sony that has just given up the Ghost. They are also very comfortable for extended listening
