4.0 out of 5 stars well written, fun story with a few twists, 11 Jun 2014

This review is from: Naked Crow (Kindle Edition)
I quite enjoyed this book - it combines a number of themes - native indian mysticism, naturism, and pre-historic life. Well worth a read.

3.0 out of 5 stars cracked soles after 9 months, 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought them for the Mrs. who was complaining of cold wet feet when standing in the playground dropping the kids at school. Worked great for 9 months but now the soles have cracked across them - they haven't been used all that much in reality and she was pleased whilst they were working, but not so much now!

3.0 out of 5 stars works but be wary if gaming, 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product works as advertised, however it glitches the picture occasionally. It comes with a remote but it is designed to auto-switch between the inputs based on what you turn on. I used it to switch between a PS3, apple TV and WII with HDMI adapter, but ended up taking it out of the chain when using the PS3 because it would occasionally glitch for just a second so the picture would disappear, and as anyone who plays PS3 games knows, a lot can happen in a second (especially at 240 mph in Gran Turismo 6) and I got fed up of loosing races and crashing because of the switch box playing up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but annoying, 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The basic story is good, but the language used is very frustrating. The author has chosen to write this in 'northern' english (at least when the characters speak). I know that there was a caveat about 'british english' spellings, but that's not right - it's northern british english, and some of the terms used and almost phonetic spelling of the northern pronunciation of terms detracted from the underlying story for me. I would have much preferred this to be written in plain english, allowing my imagination to relate to the characters, where as I found I could not relate to them because of the way they speak.

The characters themselves had depth and the storyline was enjoyable - I just was so frustrated by the way that I could not empathise with them because of the way they spoke (or rather that I had to keep trying to work out what they were saying).

I think this book would have a much wider appeal if it were edited and written in plain english so that more people could relate to it.

Anyway - rant over - an enjoyable read otherwise!

3.0 out of 5 stars Works - sort of..., 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product works in-so-much as it will get you a picture and sound over HDMI, but the quality of the picture is poor at best. I doubt the claim about it scaling to 720p - maybe it does pixel double but there is zero interpolation, and intact I would go so far as to say that actually the picture is worse over HDMI than it is at standard 480p over component cables going straight to the screen. Disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down, 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this book - couldn't put it down so read it in 2 days. Fairly predictable in parts but some nice twists later on in the story. Would love to read more from this author - I hope he does follow through with The Bare Necessities 2...

3.0 out of 5 stars watch for sharp edges, 15 Feb 2014

This review is from: Asado Grill Instant BBQ Stand
It does a job when camping, but it is flimsy and has sharp edges so take care with it. Ok for very occasional use at a campsite but don't expect it to last...

Very nice bright headlight bulbs, but only last around 6 months before blowing - expected a little more than this from these.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality strap fell apart, 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
40 days after purchase of this gift, the strap fell apart. Contacted invicta as it was out of the distance selling returns time to send it back to the seller, and discovered that it would cost me half as much as the watch cost to send it back to them in america to have it fixed under warranty! also - buyer beware - invicta will only honour your warranty if you register your purchase with them within 30 days of buying your watch!!!!!!!!! Would never buy another invicta again after this experience.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as strong as it could be, 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been using this for a while now (maybe 1000 pellets) and find that every hundred or so pellets I have to take it down and bend the edges that hold the targets back out to be able to put the targets in them - this happens because the back panel is not strong enough so it is becoming more and more concave over time where it is taking the impact of the pellets, causing it to pull the side holders inwards. It would be better if the target holder slots were not the same piece of metal that is stopping the pellets. Would buy a funnel pellet trap next time as I think this would do a better job.
