5.0 out of 5 stars some advice, 29 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a first class product which I bought direct from Amazon. I would prefer to use one of the small Marketpalce companies but I have had bad recently with fake SD cards . For the lay person the simplest way to test whether it is genuine is to use a free app called SDinsight which you can get from GooglePlay. The point about the fake ones is that whilst they may appear to work ok it is likely to be on the basis of a much lower capacity than advertised (e.g.a so called 32 gb card was actually only 8gb ) and there is also the fear that they will just stop working one day leaving one with no way to access precious content. Another tip -always buy one with an adapter as at least you can leave a card in there when it is not in use and there is less chance of losing it -these things are tiny.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bluray? This is little better than VHS, 9 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing wrong with the performance (although Josephine Barstotw as Amelia often looks more like Lady Billows), but purely in terms of bluray this is a disgrace for a performance which only dates from the 1990s . Only one setting for sound -PCM and a 4:3 picture ratio. I doubt that it has been remastered judging by the pretty basic sound and the rather blurred picture at times.The sleeve notes don't even run to a cast list. That is pathetic.

5.0 out of 5 stars just the job for theatre seating plans etc, 17 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The "viewing area" is much larger than many similar products at this sort of price. Just the job for looking at theatre seating plans, cabin numbers on deck plans for cruises etc.Good rugged construction too.

Have had these in place for a couple of months and no sign of moth damage. So looks like they are a success.

5.0 out of 5 stars this speaker came to the rescue, 17 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This speaker saved the day at a Christmas gathering the other day. The host telephoned in a panic to tell me that the CD player had broken and he had no other way of providing music. I quickly downloaded some Christmas music onto my Windows phone and am pleased to say that the speaker was up to the job of providing several hours of entertainment at just the right volume. I have the red one, so it looked rather festive too.

Fashionable colour and a goo fit for the camera with the necessary holes for the camera lens etc..Considerably cheaper than the High Street phone shops.

3.0 out of 5 stars For Wagner or Kaufmann fans only, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Parsifal is regarded as being a difficult opera and this production is not likely to gain it many fans and I have a feeling that there would have been quite a few patrons in the theatre enjoying a snooze during much of the first act in particular. The Met certainly seems to be keen to lose its reputation for all its productions being OTT. However, purely in terms of a Bluray it works well with well judged use of close ups as well as a wider view when there is actually any action to see. The acting is appropriate to the size of the tv screen which is also an advantage. The subtitles are very clear and the interval interviews not as banal as many others from the Met -not that this is difficult. So four stars for the bluray , two for the production itself giving an average of three.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting mixture, 14 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although there are some items included which one might regard as being obvious to include in this sort of collection such as the e 1812 overture, there are also very many which are not . The performances sound authentic as well albeit in reality most of them are by Eastern European rather than Russian artists. I found many of the performances very moving and passionate too . Another plus point is that generally whole movements are included rather than just the best bits which can be the case in this sort of anthology. So all in all many hours of interesting and satisfying listening and I will now investigate buying a complete version of some of the material which was new to me. One small criticism I have is the random way in which the tracks have been organised -it is as if it has been done in the equivalent of shuffle play mode.

3.0 out of 5 stars Much of it is not relevant, 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Prospective buyers should be aware that not only is this book written in US rather than UK English (ditto the jokes) but the tablet being described is very different from what most people will be buying in the UK in that it is designed for conntecting to the web via the mobile phone network rather than wifi. Another thing to bear in mind that the book is rather out of date. For example there is nothing at all on the Polaris Office software which now "ships" -to use an Americanism -with the device. It is really time for an update version to be produced. But on the plus side the book does contain some useful tips which I doubt I would have ever worked out for myself.
Most definitely not worth the full price but just about worth the Amazon price as the illustrations are clear and it is well indexed for when you need to sort out a new issue quickly.
