5.0 out of 5 stars Proposal, 3 May 2014
With this bag, under the Eifel Tower at night, I gave her the heart, then slipped the ring on her finger, then proposed.
Was it good value? Only time will tell.

With the HDMI producing coloured snow, this has become just an expensive charger. I shall persist with this later. I'm sure that it can be resolved but not "out-of-the-box"

Sometimes, when I'm at work, I run this track on continuous loop for hours. I find it therapeutic, though a little weird.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the can, 22 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as my original dual-tuner stick did not work with HD channels. Yes it runs a little hot, but then I have it running continuously. It was simple to install and works without issue with Windows Media Centre. It met all my needs and expectations.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's not going to last, 7 Dec 2013
The timer went in 3 weeks. The thermostat went in 9 months. I think I'll just put a brazier in the bathroom.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time, 29 Oct 2012
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The "three" games came with two small poorly legible keys. There was no indication what these were for. Even with a magnifying glass is that a "B"? Perhaps "8"; maybe "H" or "R".

After trying a number of variants, I found one that let me in. The application then spent 2 hours downloading all the updates since it first came out.

I could not play anything until I built an account, but this refused to accept the key that it let me in with or the other key in the case. One of the 4-character key windows would only accept three characters.

It didn't even uninstall properly and I had to complete the cleanup myself (Windows 7).

The one-star I gave it was for it fitting in the waste bin.

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 Stars, 7 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a veteran of over 50 years camping, I can say that this is a real delight. It really is worth the money.

It takes about 40 seconds to erect table and seats. Both are made of strong durable plastic with strong steel infrastructure, important to cope with my 16 stones.

There are many fold up tables available on the market with a seat connected to each corner. As these seats are independant of the table, this gives greater freedom and flexibilty.

The table and seat size is adequate for four adults.

Folded up it is heavy but easy to carry.

Buy one, even if you don't need one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a Gazebo replacement, 7 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wish that I can give this a better review as I am a fan of Wynnster tents. The construction is first class. This is basically a strong single-skinned dome tent with four removeable doors and no fly netting or top vent.

It can be erected by one person with the knack in the calm; two people is preferable. Unlike a Gazebo, if this flew away it probably would not break, though, due to its lightweight construction, I guess it would blow far away. The guy ropes are much sturdier than found on Gazebos. It takes about 30 minutes to erect.

The doors are completely removeable and have transparent panels. They have big zips and which are covered from the wet. However, it would be preferable that they stay attached and are rolled up into braillings like their tents. This would be because you would not need to pack them away and be able to deploy them at short notice.

The dome of the shelter has no top vent, so traps the hot air, making the upper section hot and humid, even when overcast. More significantly it is a large fly trap. With light material at the top the flies head upwards. You really need to keep fly spray, but then you have a heap of dead flies on the floor.

There are ten material tapes across the floor ; 2 up each side and 2 diagonals. Kids are constantly tripping over them. You can use the provided clipable groundsheet which only covers the diagonals but then it will kill the grass below it, hold the muddy footprints and have a pile of dead flies on the surface.

The bag is a bit of a tight fit unlike their tent bags. The instructions are an after-thought. A folded A4 sheet in a plastic bag with writing so small that the over-40's will have to put their reading glasses on. The only picture on it is not of this model.

So guys at Wynnster, my wish list for your Mark II version is as follows :

1/ Make it wider than 3M X 3M. Due to the curvature it does not support the same volume as a 3M gazebo.
2/ Make a light coloured vent at the top to attract the flies to exit on their own and reduce the upper temperature.
3/ Find a way to avoid using the tapes on the ground.
4/ Don't be mean; provide 4 chunky pegs for the corner guy lines.
5/ Provide a bigger bag. Collapsing the tent in the rain on a beach is no time for perfect folding.
6/ Use large instructions sewn into the bag, like you do for your tents.
7/ Use retractable doors with flyscreens like you do on your tents.

Let me know when it is built and I will buy one

5.0 out of 5 stars War is Hell; but the Price is Right, 15 July 2009

Three of the finest contemporary WWII movies in one package; and at a great price. The balance is good, too. The action takes part in Stalingrad, the Pacific and a POW camp.

These are reviewed elsewhere in great detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars .... and there's more!, 15 July 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What great value for money. It is well built and works on standard AA batteries, if required, bringing your sounds to the garden. The manual control knob does it all, although the remote control can do more.

Now, those without WiFi enabled i-pods look away now.

Good, they've gone.

OK, you guys with WiFi i-pods, just pay £2.99 for the "Tuner" app, and suddenly you have an excellent Internet Radio! And connection speed is so fast. I have been experiencing about one second connections to Riviera Radio an some African stations.

Enjoy!
