3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite even, 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Double egg Cup (Kitchen & Home)
I was looking for a double egg cup holder and this seems to fit the bill.
Or rather one of the sides did. I ordered this on the 3 to 5 days normal service and it arrived in less than 48 hours, so excellent service there. My only quip is that one of the holders is not as tight a fit as the other side. The egg sits slightly uneven on it. But it doesn't fall off and is still useable. I'm using large eggs but a medium might fit better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite persuaded with quality, 10 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read the reviews about how great this was on Blue ray. I desided to buy this set to replace my previous collection,which was also on DVD. And to be honest, i'am a bit disappointed with some of the quality.
Yes loads of great extra's, most of which relate to the series, and one or two with no connection what so ever, A 1974 interview with Tony Curtis on the Russell Harty show for example, but ok and of some interest. But if you are
fan of the series you will be in Persuaders heaven with this set. It will keep you amused for hours as you relive
the year 1970 to 1971. Check out the cars parked in the streets, the clothes and the haircuts. And all those actors that you had forgotten about. Watchout for some of those who had appeared in the Saint, and later would appear in James Bond with Roger Moore.

I do think that the transfer to blue ray is not as good as some people make out.
One of the problems is that it is bit grainy in places and white speckles do appear on some dark areas,check out the beginning of the episode Read and Destroy. And as some other people have already commented on you do see the odd hair appear the lens,see the part were Roger Moore is kissing the girl at the airport in Overture. But for me the biggest disappointment is the 4.3 aspect for all the episodes. Considering the extras are in 16.9.And that even my old collection was in,or showed in 16.9.
In this day of wide, flat screen tv's they could have made the effort.
But maybe there is a technical reason for this that someone could enlighten me on.
