1.0 out of 5 stars Missing pieces, 20 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product arrived a bit late and without the pieces to attach to the wall. I will send it back, but even if I get a new one I must say that the inconvenience of the whole return process and waiting again for the new item to arrive is a bother that could have been avoided if the manufacturer had done its job properly and sent the items correctly. So, even if the product is OK (I have another one and it works fine) I cannot give a good feedback.

1.0 out of 5 stars Program has problems installing DO NOT BUY, 16 Jan. 2011
BE CAREFUL: the current karspersky software has problems installing. First, it does not uninstall other antivirus, even old versions of their own products but request that you do it manually, then does not install!!! It asked me over and over to reboot and then failed the intallation! And their technical support is a joke. I could not even send them an email to cancel the order!
Avoid Karspersky until they get their act back again. I used them for 2 years, now I am going to try something else. They are worse that mcAfee now!

1.0 out of 5 stars One year and already broken, 26 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is really bad quality. It was not as comfortable to use as it was claimed, it pinched and scratched my skin and after just over one year of not heavy use at all, it is already broken. Do not waste you money of a bad product and a bad brand.

After this and other experiences with "women's products", I think that I will go back to use a man's shaver. Something designed to be used daily and on a face is bound to be more sturdy and way better for your skin that this rubbish.

I am tired of seeing ridiculously bad products painted pink and market as "for women". Believe me, a man would not use this on his face, and we should not be stupid and use this on our legs either.

2.0 out of 5 stars Picture quality not good and only lasts one year, 17 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is not a bad product, easy to install and convert to multiregion, but I had issues with the quality of the picture (pictures with a lot of red had big fuzzy edges) and after one year the quality of the picture is now all fuzzy in half of my dvds. I use it a lot, so it might last longer for other people.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pychopatic killer in the court of a 17th century Shogun, 2 Jan. 2001
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sano Ichiro is back again, this time as a brand-new special investigator who reports directly to the Shogun, a position that has made him quite some powerful enemies!
His first task, to solve the ritual murders that are plaging the city. As more people die, the suspects are narrowed to a small group of four, all with equal motive and potentially twisted minds, and all powerful enough to make Sano's life a nightmare if he continues his pusuit!
After "Shinju", the first book on the series, the author astonish us again with a really believable reconstruction of 17th century japan in the city of Kyoto. Plot is interesting and keeps you holding your breath till the end, although the psychology stuff is a bit crude. A book to recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable mistery book on ancient Japan, 2 Jan. 2001
Ichiro Sano has just been appointed to a priced position in the Shogun's police force. Pushed by the social ambitions of his ruined family, bound by his honor to the powerful man who recommended him and shunned by his companions (who had all inherited their positions), he is under the unbearable pressure to do well and to obey without question.
The problem is that Sano has a questioning mind, and his first case, a Shinju (double ritual suicide of two lovers) is not as clear as it appears. Sano has to chose between his duty and his instincts as invertigator, and in 17th century honor-bound-japan, he might lose everything, even if he proves right!
Very believable plot and the author really makes you feel like you are in 17th century Japan. It would be better if the main caracter was a bit more self-confident. Sometimes I dispair of a happy ending with all his whining!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good and enjoyable, recommended to Ancient Rome lovers, 21 Sept. 1999
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When joung patrician Marcus Valerius Messalla Corvinus receives a request to retrieve the poet Ovid's ashes from the place of his exile, he is far from guessing how this routine matter will change his iddle and dissipated lifestyle. Maybe the beautiful eyes of Ovid's stepdaughter have something to do with his decission to follow the matter, but the flat refusal and scared stares that he receives from the Imperial palace bureaucrats and senators are beginning to annoy him, as well as make him very, very curious. What did the dead poet do to emperor Augustus so that, even 8 years later, his ashes still bear the imperial displeasure? And how will current emperor Tiberius and his mother Livia react?
Wishart brings us to the imperail Rome of the Caesars with fantastic ability. The descriptions of people, houses and gastonomic stages are a delight for the reader, as well as the brilliant and inmensely funny dialogs. A book I love to recommend.
