1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy these!, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are not a suitable replacement for an R50 spotlight -- the light is specular and uneven. Like so many energy saving bulbs they just don't do the job properly.
Useless.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's supposed to have radio time setting, but it doesn't..., 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this because it says it has radio time setting. But it doesn't have this feature. Nor can it be set to 24 hour time. What century was it designed for?!

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work, 16 Mar 2013

Pretty much useless -- stick to the free one from Parrot!
Caused repeated crashes to the drone - and now I see Amazon don't offer a refund service like Google, so avoid the Amazon app store too!

We have 3 of these cases - for nexus 7, nexus 10 and kindle fire. They are good value, very smart and very functional. What more would you want?

Doesn't work properly. Doesn't support locations that the website supports. Totally ridiculous - especially as the Google play store version works. Very poor, Amazon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not suitable for kindle audio books, 17 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It says it's suitable for Kindles - it isn't. It has no audio input which you'd need to play audio books on the kindle through it.
It's probably great for playing mp3s from an SD card but that's not what I wanted it for!

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle let down by content, 11 Jun 2011
I have to agree with the views that the Times - and other newspapers - are not acceptable as the are currently published, and I too will not continue after the free trial.

The content is badly formatted (tabular data is totally unreadable!), and things like the weekend magasines not being included is very poor.

What makes it really bad is that Amazon are not taking an active interest in this. The Times actually told me that it is Amazon's fault "they provide the edition, we have no control over format..."

Lastly - The Times clearly does not understand digital content. I asked how I could access the online edition as a subscriber (and the kindle version is currently more expensive than the online edition!!). I was told that they are separate, and again "Amazon sell the kindle edition so we are unable to do anything about it". Totally bizarre!

So - I'll go back to free news via the Kindle browser.

Amazon and The Times should get their collective act together...

Update:

I asked the Times why the Kindle quality is poor, and why the subscription does not include online content. Apparently it's all Amazon's fault:

"Please note as this product is operated directly by Amazon, Times+ members will not have this product included with their subscription and we are unable to offer technical support.

Should you require any further information or assistance on this product, please contact Amazon customer services."

So - Amazon - care to comment on this?!!
