5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sound, 6 Dec 2011
This package offers great value for money. The dual speaker output comes in handy, we now have speakers from the amp by the tv in the kitchen which solves the echo caused by processing delays (the tv in the living room delays the picture slightly compared to the tv in the kitchen so the kitchen tv was playing the sound sooner than the tv in the livingroom causing an echo as my living room and kitchen are adjacent). The calibration mic is excellent, after calubration the sound reproduction was improved. There is a slight mains hum from the sub but I understand this is an earth loop I need to address and is common in even very expensive kit. It has plenty of configuration options so I have been able to hook upto the amp as per my kit and pair up the audio and video as required. I connect the wii to the tv and it send the audio from the wii to the amp over the hdmi (using ARC) which is neat. I use regza-link and that basically means I never need the amp remote, the tv switches the amp on and off and when the input on the tv is changed the amp changes too, can't beat that for ease of use!!!,,,............

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great song, 6 Dec 2011
This is an excellent song by a great artist. Personally I liked the original where George Harrison was ironically hoarse but the live performance is excellent too!

1.0 out of 5 stars mini-TOSLINK was shipped, 6 Dec 2011
The supplied product wasn't as pictured and wasn't even a TOSLINK cable. The supplied cable was a mini-toslink interconnect (looks like an optical 3.5mm jack) and this isn't compatible with toslink sockets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Purchase, 11 Feb 2011
This review is from: Hank & Shadows Best of (Audio CD)
The CD turned up in excellent condition (box, insert and disc), the surface looked like it had been re-conditioned (some disc material fluff by the hub). It played back fine and if you like the music, that's what counts!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic, 11 Feb 2011
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I looked all over for a decent action dominos set at a decent price (for a christmas present for a relative) and was very pleased to find this offering. The set was in a good condition with all parts present and the box was in a good enough condition for it to be a good present.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a box set!, 11 Feb 2011
All the excellent Shrek movies in one box set, this is a wonderful collection. The only reason you wouldn't buy this is if you have the movies already, or you're a stoodge. We watch these repeatedly and the high definition just makes the experience all the better, don't forget, bluray gives you HD audio too and the soundtracks to these movies is one of the best going.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glee!!!, 11 Feb 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
If you like singing games and you like Glee then you'll love this. This game has been played for many hours and allows you to increase the difficulty with decent visible performance stats to keep the challenge going. It has a good selection of songs too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Excellent Switch, 11 Feb 2011
If you want a small low power switch then this is an ideal unit. It's small, low power, works flawlessly and looks pretty good too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful addition when using SATA devices externally, 25 Feb 2009
I didn't realise I needed a cable like this till I found out that ESATA is a slightly different shape to SATA. I have an ESATA expansion card to enable me to connect an additional DVD drive externally. This cable solved the connection problem and was sufficiently long to enable me to put the device in reasonable location.
