5.0 out of 5 stars Happiness is a wonderful well priced DVD/CD/RW burner, 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My Sony Vario 24" built into the screen player began to fail. ( flimsy bit of kit anyway but I expected better than 2 1/2Years use) Trolled the net as we all do to get an idea of whats available/good. To upgrade to Blu Ray was an option but the cost outweighed the need. Plug and play and it was as good as I hoped. Now almost 6 months on.... if you need one this is it. Its portable too - so I went on holiday and attached it seamlessly onto the wife's laptop. So neat, lovely gentle satisfying "whirr" when its switched on and when loaded, low power usage too. As I have said Happiness is a bargain that continues to be so.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you are perfectionist and lack the skills...., 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just got a brand new Ipad air so an obvious choice. It was not the cheapest but seemed to have a good following. Sadly I did not have the skills to fit the first skin perfectly. Stubborn bubbles and a few microscopic grit/dust lumps meant scrapping and starting again. By this time the dust "sticky" remover was contaminated and patience holding the tiny anti-bubble card had been exhausted.The second skin UN-perfectly fitted, joined the first in the bin. Frankly the instructions given were not thorough. In retrospect, cleaning of the screen we all know should be spotless.The danger of dust particles being attracted by the friction cleaning was not. However the use of the sticky dust remover strip only became obvious after fitting the first screen. If I have another go I will ensure the kit comes with a bigger dust remover and perhaps move into the bathroom and turn on the shower(a recommendation found elsewhere on the net albeit retrospectively. I'm sure the skins were good, but the instructions and the meanness of the dust/bubble tools allow the low score. I give myself the same score for thinking I could do this. Anybody offer a fitting service?

Another great novel from the master. More complicated than the norm. Needed a note of who was who. Is USA court procedure as awful as this book and TV shows indicate?

5.0 out of 5 stars A wortwhile recomendation, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At this price it has a few faults but its worth every penny. Sound is as good as it gets. Faults? can be fiddly to turn up the volume.
annoys those close by with a flashing LED while its working. No wires and very comfortable. Good buy.

The best Iphone handbook you will find. Forget those expensive "Magbook" options,- pretty pictures but miss out on the detail. This on the otherhand is a real deal.

2.0 out of 5 stars But if things go wrong... Watch em walk away., 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used this software since Elements 9 (premier included). Jumping from 9 to 11 and then 12. So i cant say the software, when it works, is good. In itself it complicated but worthy - make some cash in your wallet avilable for "how to books" and video. Some excellent stuff is free on Utube. But when things go wrong as I have found out just recently the whole thing just dies. My experiance of Adobe customer service has been wanting and I feel that the my copy of the software is now almost useless. In my case a simple email sign in error caused a problem which in turn involved curt unhelpful emails and then silence. At over £200 worth of expenditure overall I have drawn a line under it and moved on to other products. Unless you are confident be warned - Adobe customer service is a bag of sorrow. If I ever get a response from them to resolve my situation i will let you know. My usual reviews are mostly posotive but as you can imagine I cant speak well of these guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heard this on on Sky Arts Elaine Page TV show., 25 May 2014

Not familiar before seeing this guy play and sing on Elaine Paige's TV show this week (25/05/2014) Wow what a voice, such control on tone and breath. - perfectly performed. It was like finding an antique in a boot sale sort of thing. This guy is apparently an American hero in that he collects, archives and restores what he calls the great American Songbook. Rare video and manuscripts and such. I am looking forward now to experiancing more of his work and talent and whole career.
