4.0 out of 5 stars The Panasonic SC-HTE80EB Speakerboard is a brilliant concept in the absence of a proper Hi-Fi home ..., 17 April 2015
The Panasonic SC-HTE80EB Speakerboard is a brilliant concept in the absence of a proper Hi-Fi home cinema set up. the only features i can fault are the rather tinny sounding two front firing speakers, Panasonic could and should have installed higher quality drivers here, (Considering this is supposed to be a quality dedicated audio platform ) however the two integrated down firing subwoofers in conjunction with the rear bass ports work very well indeed for their size.
The onboard Bluetooth feature is brilliant as is the dimmable and very easy to read dot matrix text display.
Panasonic's rather limited six pre-set sound modes could have been bettered by installing a simple bass & treble control or even better a full range graphic equalizer to enable the end user to set the best sound compromise to his / her own taste.

1.0 out of 5 stars I would much rather watch paint dry then watch guff like this., 18 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Run Lola Run [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
After a promising review & trailer ... What a stupid semi psychedelic experimental flop this title proved to be, same simple short story repeated several times over each with a slightly different unrealistic scenario.
After viewing I put the disc back in it's case and threw it in the fire, that's how good it was.... I would much rather watch paint dry then watch guff like this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Avoid this 2014 Remastered version, It's somewhat a disaster., 14 Jan. 2015
Magnetic Fields is by no means a bad album but stick with the original version for sound authenticity, this 2014 re masted effort has been utterly ruined by whoever remasted it, bass is lifeless and overall the sound stage feels somewhat disappointingly suppressed and striped of excitement as opposed to the original recording.. How Jarre allowed this to happen is beyond me, if it was intentional then what a complete waste of time resurrecting this 1981 release at the remastering studio was.
For reference, I would have given the original recording 4 out of 5 stars for Jarre's overall talent & efforts in capturing the listeners imagination on Magnetic Fields.
Magnetic Fields was not one of Jarre's greatest albums, but neither was it one of his worst.

1.0 out of 5 stars What you get here is a flashy looking set of earphones which will disappoint from the very first note they kick out, 20 Nov. 2014
Absolute rubbish .... What you get here is a flashy looking set of earphones which will disappoint from the very first note they kick out.
Bass is lifeless and overall produces a very tinny sound no matter how much you adjust bass settings on your equipment.

How people can award this product 5 stars is quite laughable ..... Don't say you weren't warned !!

2.0 out of 5 stars Way Overpriced. V the competition., 18 Nov. 2014
Like ALL Bose products, way overpriced unfortunately, that's why Bose magazine advertisements rarely show their products asking price.
Shame really as Bose are not bad preforming products, but for the money being asked you could easily buy better for less.

3.0 out of 5 stars No good for heavy duty sanding jobs!, 22 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite separately ordering a much more coarser 40 grit aluminium oxide set of sanding sheets, this product still struggled to remove multi layers of yacht varnish from around a hardwood external door frame, thus suggesting that this Black & Decker KA161BC Mouse is only suitable for bare wood or the removal of a single coating of oil based painted surface.
I found that the Black & Decker KA161BC Mouse creates a lot of dust despite using the included dust adaptor connected to a hoover as recommended by the manufacturer.
The Black & Decker KA161BC Mouse comes with a handy get you going package of accessory's, but only includes 5 fine & 5 medium grit paper sanding sheets, no course grade is included surprisingly, let alone the more superior aluminium oxide variety which Black & Decker choose to sell separately at around £8 for a pack of 5 sheets or a third of the price of the sander itself !
Not overly impressed with this product really as i don't believe i was asking too much of it sanding down a standard door fame.
A higher power motor version is what is needed.


War and Health: Lessons from the Gulf War
War and Health: Lessons from the Gulf War
by Harry Lee
Edition: Paperback
Price: £30.23

1.0 out of 5 stars £50 worth of Pure Government Propaganda., 29 Jun. 2014
This book has obviously been written to hide a international government cover up.

The fact is that around 250,000 or 1 in every 4 1st Gulf veterans from both US & UK have been seriously affected by Toxic exposures of various types. Just google if in any doubt.

If the author of this book is professor Harry Lee who was in charge of screening gulf veterans in London, then i would seriously question why he is now profiteering from writing such lies off the backs of terminally ill & deceased Gulf vet's to make himself a quick buck....... this practice is absolutely disgraceful & shameful.

If this joke book has been written to educate the public then i am afraid it will only lead the customer down the garden path of what the government and Harry Lee et al want you to believe.

Try reading "Gassed in the Gulf" (also available through Amazon) for a far more realistic perspective on this subject matter and for a fraction of the price.

The 1st Gulf War of 1990-91 is now officially listed as the most toxic war in Western Military History Fact!...... enough said.!

3.0 out of 5 stars The description of this product needs to be urgently changed !, 23 Jun. 2014
If this oil is blended with Sweet Almond Oil to increase it's stability and shelf life then how can this product possibly be 100% pure Rosemary oil as described ????

1.0 out of 5 stars PIL left it far too late to emulate their former glory., 29 May 2014
This review is from: This Is PiL (Audio CD)
As a avid fan of PiL, i have to say that the groups latest offering is very disappointing, (no pun intended to the classic 1989 PiL track called disappointed) Put it this way ... if a new band today released this crap as their début album it would almost certainly be a flop .
When any artist leaves such a mammoth gap (20 years in this case) as a group or as a solo artist they seem to find it somewhat impossible to emulate the success of their former heyday, and this is sadly another such example.

I simply fail to see why this album gets so many 5 star ratings and i am wondering if it is more to do with fan loyalty to PiL as opposed to the genuine merits of the recorded work on this album.

The album description states that this was a self funded project by Public Image Limited, now i wonder why ?

If your after a one stop PiL classic, i would opt for the 2013 release double CD called Gold which contains a total of 28 tracks covering all the highlights of PiL's 7 earlier studio albums with the benefit of all new digital remaster and also includes a few 12inch track versions, it's also cheaper than this wasted effort of a album which could now easy tarnish the whole groups earlier reputation.
