4.0 out of 5 stars Great tent, good price, absolutely rubbish bag, 2 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Outwell Birdland 5 green
I saw a lot of tents in various exhibitions in 2012 and decided to buy this tent when the 'price was right' This happened early in 2013 when it hit £249. Delivery and such was excellent, if a little earlier than expected, it's a special delivery and a big box so you need to sign for it and be at home - a timed delivery would have helped. Putting the tent up was a breeze but you do need two people for that initial middle section lift, after that you can finish the erection off on your own. My only gripe was the bag, cheap Chinese made rubbish, poor quality, ripped first time

Stuff in here you would never know, a good read. The description of early cinema development is fascinating and really does show the entrepreneurial spirit that built America.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish app, 5 Dec 2012

Don't bother buying this. It's just a collection of URLs and other noddy suggestions. Anyone who is really smart enough to want their kids to learn Chinese will be able to pull this information together in a trice. A better description is needed so people are not misled into buying this app.

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy alternative to it's expensive and unavailable CANON equivalent, 31 May 2012

Does the job. Yes,it is a little tight and the screw needs a fiddle to close it but I didn't see any burred edges, it hasn't scratched my lens and I am a tidy £110 better off

4.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the cover, 7 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
'What everyone needs to know' is the sub-title and that just about sums this lovely little book up to a tee. It's a little over 130 fact-filled pages long with around 25 additional pages of really useful footnotes and further reading suggestions - great for that long haul flight. It does have a very Sino-US bias - not surprising given the inextricable links between the two countries and if the book has a fault it is that the complex relationships between China and it's near neighbours are not given sufficient airing. Notwithstanding, a great book for getting up to speed in a hurry and a must if you are keen to understand what is going on in this fascinating country.
