Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition HDMI Capture Device (PS3/Xbox)
Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition HDMI Capture Device (PS3/Xbox)
Price: £120.12

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent PVR, 23 Mar. 2013
The Hauppauge HD PVR 2 is an excellent PVR, which came with all the cables I needed and an easy setup procedure. The included Arcsoft software is very good and easy-to-use as well.

I have one issue, though. When my Xbox360 entered the dimmer screen mode (I left it alone for a few minutes), the picture and sound played up. It was remedied by turning all devices off and on again, but it would be better if the PVR could handle a period of dim screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice and sturdy place to put your loose change, 5 July 2007
It has been quite disappointing that there has been no replacement to the Dapol Tardis yet despite the large range of 5" figurines available. This money box is a great way to satisfy that craving for a Tardis to look at.

What pleases me most about this item is its durability. The whole thing is made from tough plastic and is really sturdy. This makes it more than capable of being a good place to put your coins. The version I bought recently was the second version with the Tenth Doctor and Rose adorning the inside.

In terms of the additional features, it's quite a nice thing. There are a few, good sound quality phrases upon opening the doors (which you have to press in to open) and the favourite de-materialisation sound complete with flashing lamp when you close them.

It's a great object for the price and I'm very pleased with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A great idea poorly executed, 3 July 2007
For most young, fanatical fans of Doctor Who, this object must surely be on their wish list. The six buttons, twelve sounds and the moving time rotor (the rods in the middle of the console) was certainly enough for me to go and buy one.

The problems begin as soon as you remove it from the large cardboard Amazon box. The packaging for the Playset has been designed with the "Try Me" function in mind. This is probably a nice thing for the kids looking in awe at it on the shelf of a toy shop, but makes it a regal pain to get out of the box. As you carefully open one side of the outer box and slide the inner box out, the sheer terror of sellotape and nylon ties greets you.

When you do finally extract the parts from the box, the assembly process is quite simple as long as you read the instructions carefully. Certainly I would recommend this process be done by a patient parent rather than a young child.

Whilst assembling it, it is very important to note that, unlike the fictional TARDIS itself, this is a truly rickety object. As others have commented, what this toy really needs is not a Doctor, as Harold Saxon announced, but a base. Unfortunately this toy can't be moved intact without making your own tray for it to stand on and, even worse, you can't replace the batteries without taking the whole thing to bits either.

If assembled and displayed in one place relatively untouched, this toy is wonderful. If you intend to buy it for a child to play with, you will quickly find that it is a pain. A great idea poorly executed.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favourite Doctor Who Story, 26 July 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Mind Robber is a story different to other Doctor Who stories as it is fiction within fiction. Mythical characters such as Medusa and Gulliver appear in it as the TARDIS crew of the Doctor, Jamie and Zoe find themselves in a land of fiction.
The ending to episode one is a classic Doctor Who scene and Jamie has a central part in the story as he does some investigating that proves useful.
Overall, I consider it to be a classic Doctor Who story that has a lot of excitement with every episode ending on a great cliffhanger.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Troughton Classic, 26 July 2004
This review is from: Doctor Who: Faceless Ones
I purchased the Audio CD of The Faceless Ones after seeing episodes one and three on 'The Reign of Terror' VHS box set.
The story's length is fine and allows the plot to develop properly. The linking narration by Frazer Hines is great and makes up for the lack of pictures on the action shots.
The story sees the departure of both Ben and Polly, although they have relatively minor parts in the story, which is a bit disappointing. Patrick Troughton is, as always on top form with his voice, which is always engaging and comes up with some memorable lines during the story.
If you are a fan of Patrick Troughton, The Faceless Ones is a great story to own.
