5.0 out of 5 stars Superb writer. Jack Nightingale is a work of genius ..., 28 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb writer. Jack Nightingale is a work of genius. Bought and read the book in three sittings. Won't post any spoilers here, but I am holding my breath hoping for a 7th installment!

1.0 out of 5 stars Worked OK - burnt out after 5th use!, 10 May 2013
I bought this grinder on the understanding that it was robust and did the job. Wrong on both counts! I was careful to 'pulse' the spices when I was using it - but after the 5th time of using it (unfortunately 14 months after I bought it, and so couldn't get a refund on the 12 month guarantee) it packed up completely. You get what you pay for. I'm back to my mortar and pestle now. I've lost faith in electrical spice grinders!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great camera - and wonderful after-sales service too!, 10 Aug. 2012
The camera is superb in both picture and sound quality. It developed a serious problem after 13 months and I sent it to the nominated Panasonic repair (DK AVS Horley Ltd) in Horley Surrey. The camera needed a new printed circuit board which had to be ordered from Japan. 7 days later I received my camera as good as new, without a bill! DK had consulted with Panasonic who agreed that such an unusual fault, even with the camera being out of guarantee, justified a repair free of charge. That sort of customer service is very very rare these days. Well done Panasonic and thanks a million to DK AVS Horley!

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin:, 1 Sept. 2011
No problem with the cable. I have a Panasonic HD video camera and the HDMI cable is the one I use to link my camera to my TV for HD-quality playback. Good value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for the money, 1 Sept. 2011
Sound is pretty good all round. I am a gadget and hi-fi freak and so quality of sound is important. I paid about fifty quid for this PC sound-system and am very surprised and pleased by their performance. Recommend them to anyone who doesn't want to spend big on speakers!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I thought it'd be:, 1 Sept. 2011
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Just Cause 2 (PC) (Video Game)
The problem with Just Cause 2 (for PC anyway) is the controls. I found them very annoying and awkward. I didn't complete the game - I gave up and deleted the game from my hard drive. Very disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good so far!, 28 Sept. 2010
Am pleased with the BD-205 so far. It's done all I've asked of it - although writing Blu-Ray discs is strictly limited by how good your software is.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap - and they didn't work!, 28 Sept. 2010
I have an internal Pioneer Blu-Ray BD-205 reader/writer. These discs didn't work. They are readable - but NOT writable!

1.0 out of 5 stars Quality control problem?, 2 Sept. 2010
Bought 2 packs of 10 from Amazon, mainly because of good price and very good reviews. First 2 disks were rejected by my Blu-Ray writer software. Reluctant to try any more but then I re-read the reviews and found that others had 'duds' in their packs too. So I persevered....and no change! Returned disks to Amazon and bought reliable, but more expensive Blu-Ray blank disks.

2.0 out of 5 stars Insults the intelligence?!, 20 July 2009
This review is from: Angels And Demons (Paperback)
Read The Da Vinci Code and thought it a good read, and also a pretty good film.
Angels and Demons is a mess frankly. The dialogue cheesed me off very quickly, and I found myself skipping a page or a page and a half fairly constantly- why? The communication between the characters often descended to 'We can't do this' 'Yes I can' or 'I can't find the link' 'Think!' to the inevitable 'Then he saw it' Very predictable and annoying at the same time.
The plot , IMO, ends halfway through the book. The only item left is 'who is the baddie? I knew how Brown writes and quickly discarded several OBVIOUS red herrings, and was left with the inevitable conclusion.
All in all VERY disappointing. I find it very difficult to understand how people reading this novel gave it 5 stars.
There are so many varied views that a curious reader will find him/herself thinking, 'well, who's right? Is this as good/ as bad as so many have said in review. There's only one real conclusion in my mind - read it but do NOT buy it!
I won't be reading any more Dan Brown books though.
