5.0 out of 5 stars excellent charger for Sansa Fuze etc, 12 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this just to use with a Sansa fuze mp3 player to keep it charged up on holidays etc - It is very small and will taken up no room at all in a case , most importantly it does the job excellently - a real bargain too. Bought from "gizmo-deals", next day delivery! Altogether cant be faulted.

2.0 out of 5 stars Its Died , just like everybody elses, 9 Feb 2009
What a shame. this is the 2nd of these I have owned. The first one lost its display after 6 weeks. The 2nd one has lasted 13 months and I have loved using but today it has died. It froze so I reset it . This worked last week when it also ground to a halt but this time it has gone terminal: The display reads "Re-building Library" (which it clearly isn't) and the PC will not recognise its existence. Can't even turn the thing off! So thats it, out of guarantee, 4Gb of music files lost and cheaper to buy a new player than repair this one. Sorry Creative, I'm moving on to something more reliable... an average life span of 6 months isn't anywhere near good enough.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another Faulty DSD cartridge, 19 Jan 2009
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
To add my voice to others. There is definitely a fault on this game. I have had two copies of this game and both had the same fault described by other reviewers.. once you get past level 15 on the games the screen freezes and the DS gives off a loud screechng noise. Its a shame as I was enjoying playing this but I'm giving up now and going for a refund or exchange to the ocean version - Hopefully that one will be ok ?....

5.0 out of 5 stars Just may be my album of the year, 21 July 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off ignore the reviews that are moaning about this not being a folk album .. of course it's not folk! Quite what it is though is another thing. Vocals that sound a bit like Radiohead in their "OK computer" era, occasional moments that remind me of Polyphonic Spree and then you have bursts of trumpets that remind you of Calexico . The whole thing combines into a wonderful album with lyrics that confound and amaze . I'd never heard of Get Well Soon til I heard a track on a sampler album from Word Magazine - all I can say is THANKS to them because I have just bought what may well be my album of the year . Buy it, sit back and enjoy, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe not "Classical" but certainly a classic !, 17 Mar 2008
This review is from: Music Of The Spheres (Audio CD)
I have to diagree with two earlier reviews,i.e. a one star review from someone who has given one star in 6 of his last 10 review items so is obviously very hard to please , likewise a two star review from someone who gives 5 stars to 1953 reissues of Janacek and Mahler.. doubtless very good in their way but that is isn't the audience this album is aimed at! Having payed the album twice with "open ears" I am happy to say this is Classic Oldfield : it just happens to be played by an Orchestra with the man himself taking a bit part on accoustic guitar. Any Oldfield fans ,especially those from the early days, will rejoice in this album as a return to form...In particular if you liked the Orchestral version of Tubular Bells then you should click the buy button immediately . In summary - clasical? possibly not , but classic- yes!

4.0 out of 5 stars I know what I like.. and you will too, 25 Oct 2007
This review is from: Head Full of Rock (Audio CD)
This is a great introduction to the wonders of '70's rock . Most of the top bands from the era make an appearance and for a change not with all the usual songs , so Deep Purple have Fireball instead of Smoke on the flippin' water , Focus have House of the king (theme from "Saxondale" for you youngsters) rather then the obligatory Hocus Pocus, Hawkwind have Hury on Sundown and not Silver Machine, etc . Any album that includes Curved air, Argent,Nazareth and Be Bop Deluxe (all of whom are usually overlooked on these compilations) has got to be worth your money. minus two stars for the uninspired selection of Paranoid for the hundred and ninetieth time but plus one for the inclusion of Apache dropout. An excellent compilation for anyone with even a passing interest in 70's rock, well worth your time and money!

4.0 out of 5 stars works fine on the Zen V, 24 July 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought mine from an Amazon reseller for 4.99 and it works fine with my Zen V 4gb - went from empty to full charge in a little under 4 hours... NB this will NOT work with the Zen vision plus. minus one star because of the misleading description and at full price it would have been a bit overpriced!

5.0 out of 5 stars A new era in chillout, 14 Feb 2007
This review is from: Angels Fall (Audio CD)
I've bought many "chillout" albums over the years, some great, some ok , some rubbish. This however is something else altogether. 3 truly superb CD's with a different feel to each one. Cd1 is very mellow, accoustic, melancholic even. Cd2 is more upbeat in mood and tempo but still very chiled. CD3 starts off laid back and ends up with the likes of Royksopp: a fantastic selection of music and brilliantly sequenced. If you were a fan of Hed Kandi Winter Chill or Serve Chilled then you've found what you're looking for ,This amazing set is the start if a new era in Chillout and I can't wait to hear Volume 2 .

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning - amazing- unbelievable, 21 Nov 2006
I'm playing this for the third time in 24hours and it is just taking by breath away. Ok I admit I'm a life long Beatles fan and approached this with great caution but you have to hear this to believe it- Think you know all these songs? Think again! You've never heard them like this and in these versions : the normal stereo mix is amazing and well worth buying BUT if you've got a 5.1 sound system on your DVD or whatever then prepare for a real sound experience as George Martin and his son Giles stupendous and clever mix takes you right into the heart of the music. I can't praise this highly enough.Simpy, this is stunning- Just order it and really get yourself into the Beatles as never before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back "Darts" !, 25 Jan 2006
This review is from: The Platinum Collection (Audio CD)
And about time too... Just when you think that Darts were destined to become a dim memory from the end of the '70s along comes this (almost) best of compilation. Clocking in at 58 minutes you get 19 tracks of fabulous Doowop /rock'n'roll . Daddy Cool, Boy from New York City , It's Raining and all the other hits are here with a few album choice album tracks ( and one or two not so choice selections , but there you go ). At £3.33 Amazon price this must be one of the bargains of the year and hopefully if it sells well enough Warners may even be persuaded to put out a 2nd volume with the missing tracks on!
