3.0 out of 5 stars Makes a lovely tasty loaf, but what a price!, 15 Jun. 2014
This makes a consistently good loaf in the Panasonic Bread Maker. Very tasty and nice and soft. But what would posses anyone to pay £11.00 for a bread mix? The manufacturers are relying on being able to get this prescribed through your pharmacy as there is little chance of being able to use this as your regular supply of bread otherwise.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings - batteries good charger poor., 23 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Batteries are good/excellent but the charger adaptor to UK mains is very poor - not fitting even shaver sockets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just the job - but don't be in a hurry, 25 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had a job that needed a 15mm hole and this was the only drill I could find anywhere on the 'net, so the incredibly low price was an added bonus!

It did the job admirably, so I cannot complain about the item.

What does let this purchase down is the fact that this is shipped from Hong Kong and takes quite a while to arrive. This would have been less of an issue if this fact was stated somewhere in the description, but you have to dig further to find that out!

I would have given 5 stars for the item and the price, but have to knock one star off for Amazon's description - or, in this case, lack of information - sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice straightforward watch, 25 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a stylish watch for everyday use and found it in this Casio EFM-501D-1AVEF.
It shows the time and (small) date numeral. It also has stopwatch function, but my main need was for a simple straightforward watch that just tells the time!

Don't be misled by Amazon's Product Description that mentions "The Wave Ceptor range is one of the first radio controlled watches in the UK market" - it has nothing to do with this watch and, of course, as the specification shows this watch does not belong to the WaveCeptor range.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor English - needs a re-write and a good editor, 12 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The idea was good, the price was even better, but the quality of writing was very poor indeed. It appeared to have been written by someone for whom English was a second language and it desperately needed an editor to check it out before it was published. Sorry couldn't get past page 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Good Value, 8 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Le Creuset has a well deserved reputation for quality, and this particular is no exception to their usual quality.
At this price (I paid [...] post paid) it was an absolute steal! Well done Amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent case and excellent value, 9 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The case is excellent. Does the job effortlessly, doesn't hinder any of the operations or buttons.
The only thing I don't understand is how can they make it at such a low price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get the Deluxe Version!, 10 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I won't add anything about the main CD here, as many others have already said how superb and long-awaited it is!..

But I have to speak out about the DVD of the Deluxe Version, where Sarah simply sits at her piano and sings beautifully 5 tracks from the main album. I would gladly have paid full price for the DVD alone - truly excellent!

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Film but only the Bluray edition is in 5.1, 17 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As others have said, this is indeed a superb record of the Apollo mission, but the soundtrack is NOT in Dolby Digital 5.1

I have written to the manufacturers and received the reply that:
"All DVD copies of our edition of FOR ALL MANKIND only have the 2.0 track. We made an error at the authoring stage and the sleeve erroneously states that the 5.1 is included. For this we apologise.

We are unlikely to be re-authoring the DVD because it has not sold in huge numbers, so we shall simply be altering the sleeve when we repress to remove mention of the 5.1 track.

The 5.1 track is included on the Blu-ray edition which was released at the same time, and appears there uncompressed."

Amazon, however, have been superb in allowing me to return the DVD, which I will be replacing with the BD version as soon as I can - the film is THAT good!!
