5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing for the price..., 18 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This comes in 3 parts;

1. Ear defenders
2. Head band
3. Face shield

All three components clip together to make an extremely versatile and secure fit to the head. The screen is a reasonable distance from the face with minimal fogging on the bottom of the screen during use which clears quickly (the wife suggests not breathing, tried this but fell over). The screen easily fits over my prescription glasses as well.

The face shield looks like it can be replaced with a mesh screen or new polycarbonate one if they are available separately. The ear defenders are marvellous considering the whole lot costs under 14. My eyes and ears are worth loads more than that!

Just one note. The visor has protective film on BOTH sides, so piggle it off for best visibility. Yes, there really is film on that other side too! You have to look really carefully.

And it arrived quickly, ordered Monday PM, arrived Wednesday.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, tedious execution., 17 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of those films that you watch, wanting to fast forward just so you can get to the end. It's an odd mix of SF, "arty" filming that's been done before, e.g. Cloverfield, Blair Witch, and an examination of relationships.

I wish I'd borrowed it or watched it on TV rather than buy it. Does that give you an idea of how much I liked this film?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great sing-along stuff, 17 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First, there are a couple of tracks I didn't care for, so 4 not 5 stars.

However, the rest is marvellous! Some of the tracks are better than the originals. The vocals are strong and very well executed which means you can listen and re-listen to these entertaining tracks. Great in the car while travelling as everyone will know the words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made and solid, 17 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very well made with a solid handle that feels very strong. Brush and scraper work well as bristles are soft enough to sweep but stiff enough not to collapse. Scraper will happily move coals back and I have yet to witness any burning on the wooden head.

Only issue is that it doesn't get to the edge of the oven due to the shape of the curved walls, but this is not a real problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gentle and endearing film to watch again and again., 28 May 2012
This review is from: The Dish [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
This film is heart warming and will make you smile throughout. You will also laugh out loud in parts. It paints a marvellous picture of a simpler time where the whole planet was inspired by a technical achievement that has been unsurpassed to this day.

It is easy to watch and re-watch and has a unique Australian perspective, you just want it all to be true. To give any details would spoil your viewing, just get it and watch it.

Marvellous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming and engaging, 24 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Green Lantern [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Well, after all the bad press I thought this was going to be quite poor but surprisingly it wasn't!

The story is quite balanced between action and character development, it fits in the back story about the Green Lantern and moves along quite nicely with only a short section early on which is a bit slow. This should appeal to a wider audience than other pure action films as the relationships are a bit better crafted and believable.

Personally, I don't want every film to have the same tempo and set pieces. I also don't want reality shows or low budget sci-fi with wooden acting. I enjoyed this immensely and couldn't see why it was so poorly reviewed. If this was a pilot for a TV series you would be eager to see the rest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Aren't reviews interesting!, 7 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, reading the reviews you would think this is a book for beginners with expert abilities! Some think it's easy, some think it's for the expert.

I have read through this book and it is a little basic for expert cooks. It is good for the aspiring or under confident beginner. The recipes are simple and give a range of alternatives to the ingredients to assist in choosing a recipe or fitting in with what you have or can get hold of.

Nicely written, but too basic for me. I have a friend who will benefit from it who is learning to cook and not confident about varying a recipe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great service and a nice bit of kit, 13 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this for the wife as she has an Android phone and kept pinching my Playbook.

The screen is fairly good, not as good as the Playbook (which is brighter and has a higher pixel density) but still good enough to surf or preview photos. The touch is fairly responsive, again, not as smooth as the PB, but no complaints. Works better with a clean screen.

The overall performance is good, this has replaced a laptop for some tasks (checking stuff quickly on the WWW, playing Spider Solitaire, checking email). Skype works, but performance relies on a very good wifi signal and stutters a bit even then on video, but voice only is fine. There is only a forward facing camera, so not easy to take pictures with it. iPlayer works, but don't expect HD quality on the screen as the BBC seems to send a low quality image. This may be sorted later or I may have the wrong settings as the HD demo is much better.

Sound is from a single speaker at the back and to one side, so earphones are needed really. The PB has spoilt me with its excellent, forward facing, stereo speakers.

Very light weight, so easy to carry and take with you wherever you go. Very thin too, so quite an elegant package.

I have also used it to get apps that aren't available on the PB. Downloaded an excellent wifi analyser for free!

Delivered quickly and had info on suppliers web site to update apps.

The only 2 negative points I can see are;

1. The charger is not a micro USB but a dopey old Nokia style plug, so not compatible with other chargers.
2. There are no instructions to get you started, so some basic Android knowledge is essential. Android can be a bit of a pig to get going with if you are not an Android user.

Most other problems are Android related, like needing an app to play YouTube rather than playing it in the browser, but that isn't the fault of this tablet.

If you want an iPad buy one, but don't complain about this which costs MUCH less and works well. I suspect some are flooding it with apps that are advertisement ridden and therefore stifle the performance. Choose your apps carefully a this little gem will provide a good experience and a great intro to tablet computing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner, 6 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More recipes with twists and deep explanations of why things work.

There are some simplified recipes of items from the "Perfection" series, eg chilli con carne, which don't take several days to make.

As always with his books, they give a wonderful insight into flavours and techniques. Yes, some recipes can be complex or involved with difficult to source ingredients, but always worth the trouble for that special occasion.

This is not a beginners book. You need to know about cooking or have a real passion for it. If that's you, this book is not only a great reference, but a joy to read.
