3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The selection of pieces is delightful and performed to a high standard but, contrary to some other buyers' opinions, I found the sound quality somewhat hollow. Given that the recordings are all "live" from concerts I suppose the quality is acceptable but I wasn't aware of this fact at the time of ordering (I still can't find a reference to this on the listing) and I HATE having to listen to audience applause on a CD, albeit that it's polite and doesn't actually intrude on the music itself - thank goodness they didn't record these performances before an American audience!

3.0 out of 5 stars HIghly technical, 4 Sep 2013

A thorough tome but hardly a "Field Guide" as entitled given the detailed texts in every entry. More of a mini bible for the more academic photograph which isn't me!

They're very effective but not as brown as they appear on the listing which I would have preferred. On the other hand, many people prefer a grey tint to a brown one!

Excellent value for money - larger flag, larger mount and stronger than others that I've seen! Note that these car flags have white posts and mounts which are better looking than the black ones, in my opinion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but not cheerful, 28 Sep 2011

Whilst it has some useful information the 2009 edition I purchased is surprisingly out-of-date and very limited in its coverage. Cheap but disappointing and of limited use to us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 8 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With a reasonable amount of sunlight this chain of LED lights shine out beautifully for at least a few hours. We set it up quickly around our rose arch and it really sets off the other garden lights. The extension lead to the solar panel is 2 metre long which should be sufficient for most uses. So far so brilliant!

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but not cheerful!, 4 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst the price is very good, the casing seems strong and the tubes give off a good light when full charged, the switch is very unreliable and tends to fail to light up the second tube. We bought two of them and they both have cord switches but this doesn't work at all on one of them and only switches on one tube on the other. Being so cheap we've not thought to complain or return them for exchange or refund, we doubt that it would be worth the bother, let alone the return postage cost if this couldn't be reimbursed!

The two clocks keep reasonably good time, it looks great and the price was very reasonable so it's a shame that the bracket doesn't have a stronger arm as it has bent slightly.

Not happy with the quality but the sellers provided extra, smaller copies without charge which, naturally, improved the definition!

Great price AND it has actually worked on one of our recordable DVDs that had failed!
