5.0 out of 5 stars Good reliable blue ray writer., 8 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used this external Blu-Ray writer connected to my notebook and it has performed properly every time with the sole exception when I accidentally jogged it mid write! Otherwise 100% success in writing (so far) some twenty or so blank disks. It's write speed of 6x is adequate for most purposes.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!, 8 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A little dubious about this since the price seemed low and I was worried about leakages but it works well and produces a great toasted sandwich.

2.0 out of 5 stars don't fit my glasses, 26 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thought I would try these at the price.
Unfortunately having tried them with 3 different pairs of glasses they fail to fit so that they cover the spectacle lenses properly. Maybe it depends upon your prescription but for me these were absolutely useless. Not worth returning at this price so I tried a little butchery of the plastic support and managed to get them to nearly fit one of the pairs of glasses and then they work fine but tend to slip upwards. I will look out for a more suitable pair of clip ons and probably have to pay a little more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 26 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far I have burned 9 of these discs on an external Blu-ray writer. All burned correctly with no error messages at the maximum write speed with the sole exception of one and that was my fault (the external writer didn't like a vigorous accidental jog with my elbow whilst writing!). The matt white surface of the upper surface makes for easy labelling.
I will be buying this product again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good price and delivery, 17 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered the replacement part because a part was missing from a new Samsung fridge freezer. Just as well I didn't rely on Samsung because even after a long (and expensive) telephone call the promised replacement part has never arrived whilst this 'backup' arrived within a day or two and is working perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent compendium, 13 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Finzi: In Terra Pax (MP3 Download)
An excellent compendium with works by Finzi interpreted by various artists. Originally bought for the Dies Natalis (brilliantly performed by Philip Langridge) the collection contains other works by Finzi some known to me some not. The one non-vocal work ( Romance for String Orchestra) sits a little uneasily with the rest. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says, 8 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We neeeded a spare disc since our cats have a tendency to get into trouble and lose their collars. This disc works correctly with the Elite 305/6 radio frequency cat flaps at a much lower price than other suppliers were charging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good bookshelf speakers, 24 May 2012
As passive bookshelf speakers the performance of these speakers is more than adequate for most purposes. They are small, net and good looking (silver finish). The price of under £75 including delivery from Germany was outstanding.

The quoted power capacity is misleading and should have been quoted as peak music power or the true RMS should have been quoted. Despite that they are excellent value for money in a domestic environment.

2.0 out of 5 stars 'British' Pubs, 4 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book on the basis that it was a guide to the best of British pubs. The book contains over 500 pages of pubs in England with only 27 pages for Scotland and 27 for Wales. Northern Ireland obviously doesn't contain any pubs whatsoever.

Being based in the Western borders of Scotland and only a few miles by ferry from Belfast this strictly limits its usefulness.

The information on the website should make clear the Anglo-centric nature of the Guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Recording..... but, 16 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great recording of the opera but am I alone in having problems with downloading multi disc versions of operas etc.
The download does not appear to separate the discs so, if transferred to the mp3 player I get track one from each of the discs then track 2 from each of the discs etc. Not too much of a problem for pop music but serious for a narrative opera. It doesn't seem to happen with all operas but is quite common on multi disc sets.

The solution is simple - divide them into folders, one for each disc. This is easy but annoyingly time consuming especially for an 11 disc set of the Ring!
