This review is from: On The Edge (Audio CD)
Saw Larry a few years ago supporting another band and noticed he was touring in my locality and so decided to check him out again. Absolutely brilliant is the only way to describe this album. 'The Girl That Got Away' is probably the track that will get the most attention but for me, 'The Wrong Name' is one of the most powerful love songs I've ever heard and better still, there is the same track as a 'Part 2' but without the singing that just showcases Larry's amazing blues style. So loved this album, I've been buying some of the others in Larry's collection. Went to see him live and he didn't disappoint, amazing blues guitarist that makes the instrument wail and sing and a great laugh between songs as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Didn't want to drill through walls or double glazed door to get power so Solar was another option. Seen many reviews on Solar powered lights and many describe them as hopeless but was inspired by the number of high ratings and can say that I am impressed enough to give it a 5 star rating. Possibly not as bright as a mains powered unit but the bank of LED's give a pleasing even coverage of light rather than a 'dazzle' and certainly does the job. I would buy another but the rear of my house is north facing and doesn't get much sun in the winter and under those circumstances, wouldn't fare as well.

These earphones are very uncomfortable, too small for the ear and does not do what it says on the tin. Huge disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing quality for such a cheap price, 20 May 2012
I bought this after money started disappearing from my wives purse. Unfortunately the situation came to a head before I could deploy it but tests after showed it to give very good quality images that would have given conclusive results. The key fob was totally convincing and friends I showed it to couldn't believe that it was a camera until I popped out the tiny memory card. I can't comment on battery life but for the price, you can't go too far wrong and I would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Film, 26 Sep 2011

This review is from: The Lovely Bones [DVD] (DVD)
This film is definitely in my 'Top 10'. It is a fascinating combination of story telling and surrealism. The Direction is outstanding (Peter Jackson) and the acting is superb. It had me gripped all the way through and is different to any film I've seen before. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Sound and Small Footprint, 27 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As many other people have commented, the screws to attach the tallboy speakers to the stands are pretty useless and several of them are only 3/4 of the way in because they are so tight!

That aside, it is pretty easy to set up as the wires are colour coded, just as well as the 'helpful' manual is both small (even with reading glasses!) and not the best ever.

DVD's play superbly well and the surround sound really comes into it's own. When playing the Television through the system, there was an annoying echo that sounded like you were in a swimming pool. After a lot of head scratching and experimenting, I found out that you have to have to turn the TV sound right down and control the volume by selecting AUX 2 and control the volume only on the DVD remote handset. Couldn't find that little gem in the manual either!

I purchased the wirelss back speakers as well, which isn't quite true! You still have to run the wires from the receiver unit to the 2 rear speakers but it only means lifting part of the carpet instead of running them 3/4 of the way around the room.

Overall I'm really happy with the system and would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for the mentioned annoying issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it!, 28 Jun 2010

Despite being into music on the heavier side, I had always given Zeppelin a bit of a wide berth. A friend dragged me to see a Zeppelin tribute band and despite some reservations, I really got into it. After buying this album, I'm kicking myself for managing to ignore them for so long. A definite 5 star album and one I can't stop playing.

3.0 out of 5 stars No instructions or power connector!, 29 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good card but the instructions?? (if you could call them that,) were lamentable and it didn't come with an adapter to connect to the power supply.

When you are paying that sort of money for a card, you expect them to try to make it easy but it took a lot of searching and finally a 'techie' mate to source a power connector and fit it when it should have been fairly easy for anyone to do.

Sorry inno3d but can't recommend this product until you get your act together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Iron Maiden-Somewhere Back In Time, 11 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A collection of some of the early stuff from a classic metal band. Even nearly 30 years on, it still stands the test of time. How many bands would rather that their early stuff would just 'go away?' From the introductory 'Churchill speech' that always raises the hackles on my back of my neck and on through classics like The Trooper, Children of the Damned, Number of the Beast and Run to the Hills, this is a must have album for anyone who likes their music 'on the heavy side'.
