5.0 out of 5 stars Its been great - Sorry I have come to the end., 30 May 2014

A fantastic show, well written with marvellous development of characters over the lifetime of the show, gripping storyline, well executed, with some beautiful filming in the New Mexico desert. Got to be one of the best shows on TV in recent years.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as all the other 5 star reviews says it is., 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I won't repeat all the other reviews about what a good show this is. On a question as to the quality of this particular collection, I have not found any problems and it plays OK in English on my DVD player (UK PS3)

Mazon were selling it for 27 which was a great price for the 4 seasons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful software but not without some issues, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a digital download when Amazon offered it at a reduced price.

The reduced price, about 35 I recall was fine and a fair price for what the software does I think. I doubt I would pay the list price which was about 60 as the software is quite niche and only would really appeal if you are into black and white (As I am)

Download & Installation was OK. The software is originally in German and loads an English language version during installation. The original splash screen asking whether you want to install is in German and I had to Google the question to translate it to click on the correct button.

However, it installed fine and the English translation that loads is good and I have only found one small glitch where an option to select was not translated and I could work out what it meant OK.

The software is powerful and the tools available can be customised extensively and then saved as your own preference. I don't like some of the presets which I think are a bit course and give the image a harsh HDR look which I personally don't like. (You may have a different view of this.) Some of the presets are very good though and I particularly like a 1940s glamour lighting style which is quite effective for portraits.

Once you have adjusted the image to your liking you can send it directly to another image editing program of your choice that you have installed. For example I have set it up to send the images directly to Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 for finishing off.

To sum up then - Powerful software, which can produce some striking images, but a bit too expensive at its list price when set against its overall usefulness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tool for the job., 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The set of Fugi silicone profiling tools are really helpful to get a nice neat edge.

Because you are sliding them along the surface the quality of preparation you do in removing any old silicone first will determine the quality of the result. Like most things, the more you practice the better you will become.

What is very good though is that if you don't get it quite right, you can go over it again, or even dig out the wet silicone with the Fugi and try again.

The blue tools are used on their own and in the leaflet it explains how by tilting the tool slightly as you spread the silicone, you can minimise the problem of the tool getting stuck in gaps between tiles as you pull it along, which can spoil the neat line.

Alternatively, the red Fugi 2 tools can have the little black bars inserted either side of the profile size you choose, which helps the tool slide over grout gaps and gives that neat line.

The plastic the tools are made of easily cleans up, even if the silicone is left on there to dry it easily rubs of the tool.

A great set for doing neat silicone profiling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, good fit, 23 Feb 2014

These products were bought to remove grouting from a shower stall and proved ideal. They are a lot cheaper than the manufacturer branded products and seemed to fit just as well.

I don't know how well they last in comparison but are at a price where you can replace them cheaply enough. One blade did the shower stall OK so all in all great value and I would try Saxton blades again quite happily.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect but quite well made and amazing value from the USA seller, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was delivered quickly from the US supplier and the price was very good too. So Kudos to them.

The product is well made with a hard inner shell which clips in two pieces around the phone. Then you insert the phone and inner case in a silicone soft shell outer case.

A good point is the built in kick stand at the rear which allows putting the device onto the table to watch videos, or use Google day-dream on the phone and have it as a bedside alarm clock if you wish.

I also like the little silicone flaps which cover the headphone and micro-USB sockets which help keep dust out. (I had a Nokia phone once which got dust inside which migrated onto the camera sensor which ruined that.)

So that's the good part.

Not so good is that the hard shell inner case and phone don't feel terribly secure in the silicon outer shell. I don't think it would fall out, but it felt a bit disconcerting. Also, I can't help but feel it is the wrong way round and would be better (like my Otterbox commuter which I have gone back to) to have the silicon on the inside and hardshell on the outside to provide some shock absorbing to the phone's skin.

So an interesting product, great value from the US supplier, but ultimately could be improved upon.

Well made smart shoes that are comfortable too. They look quite good with jeans and chino's rather than a suit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive but catchy and melodic, 23 Feb 2014

A bit repetitive but Pharrell's melodic voice make it a catchy and pleasant song. Good video released with it too, which takes the mind away from the repetition by having different people appear every few seconds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective and good value, 18 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product works OK and is good value considering you only need a small amount each time when back flushing the machine and you get a lot in the container for your money.

You can also use it to soak clean other coffee stained components like the brew basket.

There are safety warnings on the packet which should be heeded especially if there are children about when you are cleaning the machine, but it is a good product to help maintain your espresso maker.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately didn't work for me, 18 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tried to use it with a Canon 270EX and an old manual flash I still had.

Although the flash fired OK when triggered by the strobe of the flash on the camera, it didn't synchronise with the camera shutter so didn't do what I wanted it for. Had to return it.
