5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and value for money, 20 Nov 2012
Fitted this Monogram blanket to our spare double bed a few weeks ago. It's not a huge blanket but covers the main sleeping area just fine. The controls are good and the material is comfy. Heating time is quick and can be adjusted to taste. Overall really pleased and would recommend.


Bite-size Sales Tips: Practical Ways to Improve Your Sales Performance (Creating Success)
Bite-size Sales Tips: Practical Ways to Improve Your Sales Performance (Creating Success)
by Steve Hurst
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and accessible tips for busy salespeople, 25 Mar 2011
I am really pleased that I got this book. Most sales improvement books tend to get bogged down in theory and boring stuff. Bite-size gives you an easy to digest, understand and action guide to improving sales performance. Mostly common sense ideas really, but certainly food for thought for newbies and seasoned salesmen alike.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but as an original case it should be better, 30 July 2010
As other reviewers have rightly pointed out this case is a tight fit for the E63. Having the lanyard fitted helps but the product execution could be better. The quality is quite good although not very leather like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic reference, 30 Nov 2009
A 'must have' for all potential Uni students (and their parents). Written in a clear and entertaining style that will not put off teenagers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mid range machine, 30 Nov 2009
I bought the NW20ZF as a replacement for an ageing XP Vaio. The build quality of the hardware is solid and feels like it will last the course. The start up procedure took place without any major hitches. I have encountered no problems in one month of quite heavy use. Very fast operation and I am pleased that I paid a little extra for the ATI graphics chip.

One negative is that some of the bundled software is surplus and unnecessary and needed to be pruned to avoid over burdening the system.

2.0 out of 5 stars I don't get it!, 16 Sep 2008
I wanted to like this compilation. The packaging and sleeve notes are excellent. However it is the music that matters and this where the problems start.

In essence you are buying someone elses mix album. If you come from a similar place and time then all well and good, otherwise you just might miss the point as I did. Even then why the Pink Panther and Hill Street Blues theme tunes? Haven't we heard them enough over the years!

On a positive note, some of the seminal house music tracks on disc 2 deserve to be re-visited. However, what is unforgivable is the poor compressed sound quality. MOS state that the songs were recorded from the vinyl originals together with the usual LP background noise to enhance the atmosphere. I would prefer a nice clean remastered copy, thanks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for a Flat Panel TV, 10 Dec 2007
The Bose Acoustimass 3 is a good speaker for use with a flat panel tv. The cubes are very unobtrusive and the sub is small yet gutsy enough for the home cinema experience, if like me you prefer just two channels.

However, from a Hifi perspective the sound quality may disappoint.

For:

* Size
* Reasonable value
* TV suitability

Against:

* Loose bass
* Lack of treble definition
* Needs a decent amp to really cut through the muddy sound
* Vinyl finish a bit 'eighties'
* Poor speaker terminals and supplied bell wire

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool Authentic Ibiza House Music, 10 Dec 2007
There is nothing commercial about this compilation. Very melodic in true Balearic style. There are no fillers with each track earning its place in the collection. The sound quality is ok but could be more dynamic. Well recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice piece of kit, 1 Nov 2007
This is not the cheapest Freeview box around but it more than justifies the price with its high quality finish, good picture and supplied accessories. The DVB2012T is supplied with a car (12v) adapter and a magnetic aerial for watching Freeview in the car. The box itself is very compact and slim although the remote control is also on the small side if you have very chubby fingers. I did not have any problems setting it up to my nearest (the unit says Crystal Palace) transmitter.

In summary....very satified, thanks Amazon!

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit dissappointing, 28 Jun 2007
I wanted to like this product as it offers a good multi-purpose solution. The line output enables you to use it as a docking station through a home Hifi. Also the unit is compact enough to use as a speaker system on holiday or in the garden. However I found the following shortcomings:

* The metallic speakers give a harsh sound without much bass extension

* There is annoying electronic feedback/interference when you change track

* Line output level is low

* The remote control has a poor range and cheap feel

Also, the first unit sent was faulty, so in summary I regret this product is not recommended.
