3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the advertising, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After sorting router problems we have been able to use this device. Would have welcomed a simple instruction leaflet to get started and found initial finger control slow though this is now working well. A stylus is necessary to avoid error when typing. Access to the lending library with only one free book per month via Amazon prime is a little mean, one per week would seem reasonable to me, especially when delivery of purchased good can be obtained on free delivery if thee working days is acceptable. The free books advertised consist of dictionaries in several languages, not the literature that one may have expected. The device is useful though other tablets that include Kindle would seem to offer better value, I regret that I did not research the market more comprehensively.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 3 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a great pity that Roy Porter has not brought his obvious talents to 19th and 20th century English History. This book is a well written broad brush account of its subject. Easily absorbed and authoritative, including many references that enlighten and give meaning to all that followed in 19th century England.

5.0 out of 5 stars does all that is required of a phone, 7 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For low cost phone convenience it would be difficult to better. Battery life between charges is adequate and coupled with a pay as you go tariff the cost of calls and ownership are modest. Fits my type of use perfectly, which is ; Retired and therefor require low usage at infrequent intervals.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic, 6 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good basic gardening book though it is in need of an update. A comprehensive index would help (a plant index is included though this is not as comprehensive as the booklets written by the same author) . If you are just getting started this is a low cost reference book that will never be far from your armchair.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1st class, 6 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A modern phone having a clear, large letter display and an answer phone that quickly discerns if the caller is interested in talking to you or just another sales/bogus call that can be ignored (when will BT offer a service to its users that will block these calls?) . I found the instructions booklet clear and easy to follow though I only required one change to the original set up, this being the number of rings before the answer phone connects. Volume and tone are good from the start and I have had no problems since purchase nearly two months ago. Excellent.

Could have been written / edited to half its length. Added little to the Hemingway story merely adding to the myth.

2.0 out of 5 stars Past his best, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On The Air Tonight (Audio CD)
Wished I had not bought this, early Blunstone was original and at the front of the the cross over trend. This is a recording to bolster his dwindling Bank balance based on past performance.
