5.0 out of 5 stars Totally engrossing, 28 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bosch - Season 2 (Amazon Video)
I had read several of the Bosch books, which lead me to watch Series 1 from Amazon. In my view he characterisation of Bosch in the series is very close to the image conveyed by the book and the whole of series 1 was totally engrossing - in the same class as The Wire in my view. Series 1 was a hard act to follow but Series 2 manages quite well and was equally engrossing. I'd judge it as not quite as good as series 1 though - the opening storyline condensed a whole book into a few scenes for example which if you had read the book jarred a bit, and some of the story lines didn't always sit together very well. However, I'd still rate it overall as outstanding. I'm hoping there'll be a Series 3...

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality and not as described and pictured, 18 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I sent these back as they do not correspond to the description. They looked very cheap. Like other reviewers, the glasses I received had seams down the sides and the first one I looked at was defective with a small cut in the side of the glass. It seems strange they are so poor, because I ordered these on the basis of the 5-star reviews that said they were very like glass with no seams...

Doesn't live up to the description. There are random digits in the text that don't connect to anything. Landscape view doesn't work well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 16 April 2015
This review is from: Fire TV Stick (Electronics)
I'm am most impressed with the Fire TV Stick. It works out of the box, it's simple and intuitive in operation, and it supports subtitles with Amazon Prime Video and TV. The latter is a huge plus for the hard of hearing.The price is excellent too.

I saw other reviews that experienced some problems but I had none of these. It took me about 5 minutes to get it going, including connecting to my secure wifi. I imagine a weak wifi signal will cause problems, which can arise if your router is providing the wireless link from another room.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works well but you need to be careful, 24 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are no instructions with it at all, not even what batteries to use. It's effectively at producing UV light but don't leave it on very long. It can get very hot very quickly. I inadvertently left it on for 5 minutes or so after which the case was almost too hot to touch. I don't know how hot it might get but maybe the manufacturer should test this. Considering it runs on lithium batteries it might be a fire risk if you left it on and forgot it.

It works when it fits on a bottle but more often than not it's too small.I have found that it fits on less than 50% of bottles so far.

Excellent quality and value. They hold the contents of a 330ml bottle of beer perfectly. They are dishwasher safe and they look good too.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK - but has its problems, 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's very compact, which is what I was looking for. Its primary problem is that the design makes no allowance for the contents. A few bank notes and something in the slip pockets makes it very hard to fasten.

Looks a bit cheap like plastic. Not good value. Made in Russia from the label. I'll only use it when gardening. Camel Active belt at roughly the same price(at least, it was when I bought it) is much better value and looks good.

If you like to grow Japanese maples, this book is a 'must have'. It is comprehensive and very detailed. It includes a handy summary at the end showing the primary characteristics of many varieties, such as whether they are suitable for container growing or bonsai and any preference for sun or shade.
