2.0 out of 5 stars Not working after 8 months - will not charge!, 21 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought in January 2014 and in August 2014 after less than 8 months has stopped charging. The red LED does not come on, to indicate charging, but does flicker if you fiddle about with the USB lead. Not sure what the warranty is on this item, but have asked them for details. Will see what their fulfilled by amazon customer service is like. Sound is very good when it worked, but very disappointed at this failure after such a short time and only occasional use.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did not work - ratttle from inside unit - alarm went off straight after set-up, 22 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I followed the set-up procedure but immediately afterwards the alarm sounded. I was in room without any gas devices. I could hear something loose rattling around inside the unit. I tried the device in my other house, with exactly the same result. I returned it the same day.

I will probably order another one, as the majority of reviews of this item are good, maybe its a case of luck. But clearly I am not the first to report this problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting and beguiling music from heaven., 8 Oct 2007
This review is from: Mozart - Requiem (Audio CD)
Whilst I have no classical background musically so to speak, I love to listen to classical music. The Requiem is quite possibly the most beautiful piece of music one might ever hope to hear and Peter Schreier's version here is fantastic. To be honest I cannot compare it to other versions since I dont have them, but such is the beauty of this work, I am now looking to buy other versions to compare. Dont be fooled by the low price here, this has to be a bargain of the century. Buy it!
I will be looking to buy the following versions at some time in the future, Harnoncourt, John Eliot Gardiner, George Solti, Helmuth Rilling, Christopher Hogwood and Philippe Herreweghe. I guess when I have all of them I will be better placed to compare the Schreier version. Now where is that credit card.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Insight - almost 3 hours long, 26 Dec 2004
This review is from: Baby Snakes [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
Ok folks, its boxing day in the UK, I spent much of my post Xmas dinner watching this fantastic DVD. Its an absolute treat and almost 3 hours of it, at that.
For the uninitiated, Zappa is a master composer, guitarist and sattirist. In short a genius.
The DVD offers to some degree only glimpses at Zappas mastery of the guitar, as he is often without it, directing proceedings or simply singing with microphone in hand. That said the glimpses are fantastic and worth the cost of the DVD alone.
Listen to the guitar on "Black Napkins" and "Punkys Whips", and take in the mastery of the drummer Terry Bozzio in the solo at track 11. Zappa attracted only the finest musicians, take a close look at all of them in this brilliant insight, into the man himself.
Also check out the albums Joes Garage Acts I,II&III, Sheik Yerbouti, and You Are What You Is. Not forgetting to mention the most fantastic and mesmerizing Zappa track of all time, "Watermelon in Easter Hay", which is on Joes Garage Act III. The track needs some getting used to, but is really the essence of the man, in musical form. BLESS YOU FRANK !
