5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Gem, 15 Sep 2013

This review is from: African Tree (Audio CD)
I heard barriga d'agua on Radio 3 and couldn't get it out of my head. Lovely album this, lifts me every time I play it. If the buena vista social club were rooted in the music of Africa and Brazil, and were having a really good day, they might produce something like this.

This product contains one guided tour around Stockholm.
The map of the tour isn't readable on the kindle itself, even zoomed.
Information along the tour is very light.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not enough power, 7 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The iPad 3 requires a 10W charger, this doesn't supply that much powder. Consequently the iPad takes a very long time to charge. Mine took 8 hours to charge 20%. It's more or less the same effect as using an iPhone charger to charge your iPad.

A very neat product, which keeps your iPad nice and safe while travelling. Very good value, robust, and a free stylus as a bonus. No hesitation recommending this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Clunky, 24 Feb 2012
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Apparently this game took four years to write. It feels like it took ten, because the interface and mechanics seem to have skipped the last decade of game play to produce this throwback. It's the little things, the camera angle you can't zoom out from, the fact you can't click on objects to interact with them (and instead you have to stumble into them and hit an interact key), the irritating voice acting, the quirky way every interaction forces you to hit keys just to step through. I suppose some people like the graphics, but I thought they were dated and oddly demanding of my graphics card, which stuttered over a lot of the scenes... It's like playing a really old MMO, but with no one else to talk to.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Complete, 14 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Described as "The Comedians - Series 1-7 - Complete" it is in fact only the HIGHLIGHTS of each season. Very misleading title. As a highlights show, the choice of featured material is then often weak and includes serveral comics repeating jokes. Poor.

1.0 out of 5 stars NTSC not PAL, 10 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The show is great, but although this disk is Region 2, and BBFC rated, it's NTSC format and not PAL, so it may not play on your system. The sound quality is also very strange. There are scenes when the main characters voices go oddly deep or have an echo or go very slighty out of synch with the video (and other scenes when it's fine). I suspect this is to do with the format of the 5.1 encoding.

This is a great game for a large group, so an ideal party game. This is a nice edition, with lots of character options. However, this is the COMPACT edition, so it doesn't come with Ted's 25 page booklet with ideas for running the game.

1.0 out of 5 stars bye bye, bye bye, 24 Nov 2009
I bought tweleve of these units (four packs of three plugs). After 14 months, seven of the units all broke within two weeks. They all have the same fault, the switch clicks on then the unit immediately turns itself off again. This seems to be a known problem.

A number of manufacturers now make similar products. As these ones break I'm buying a different sort.

1.0 out of 5 stars dreadful and expensive, 13 Nov 2009
The appeal of the Dualit was the perception that it was a simple but sturdy toaster. My three (I've had to change it twice) have all been disasters. The first two were sent back because only two of the four toasting slots had working elements.

However, the basic design of the toaster means it's inconvienient to use. It really only toasts properly if you preheat it and then it can run too hot. Also the clockwork timer tends to stick. It's more of a device for testing your smoke alarm rather than making toast.
