5.0 out of 5 stars Did the trick, 27 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Found some old floppy discs & had no idea what was on them. So, despite the fact that I had survived without knowing what was on these floppies for at least a few years, I just had to buy something that would allow access & looked for a cheap method - this was it.
The reader was actually cheaper than the postage charged which seems a little odd - not available via Amazons' usual Prime or Free Delivery service but perhaps that's where any profit is actually made by the supplier.
Anyway, the reader performed well & the mystery was solved, but whether I'll have need for it ever again I know not. Memory sticks have made these old floppies obsolete of course & a reader is not required with a memory stick.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works but still expensive., 27 Dec 2013

These printer people have the market stitched up & charge a bloomin' fortune for a drop of ink, but hey, if you need hard copies of something what choice do you really have? Many of the cheaper alternatives are not recognised by the printer - some clever i.d. software & internet verification police the 'recommended replacement only' route is strictly followed.
So, yes, it works, & so it should for the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny man, 27 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Altho not seen this particular dvd yet - it was bought as a present - I do own the previous dvd + have seen him 'live' in Bristol where he had the audience holding their sides & wiping their eyes thru weeping with laughter.
There was enough tv promotion to see that this dvd would not disappoint & I'm looking forward to borrowing it from my son when he's willing to let it go for a few days.

This review is from: Les Misérables [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
Bought as a present for 88 year old mother-in-law who loved the show + the soundtrack + still cried at the end of the film.
I can see why it has been such a great success & who am I to question the millions who are fans of Les Mis?

This review is from: Midnight Memories (Audio CD)
Bought as a present for 9 year old grand daughter.
No doubt I'll hear this in the car or at home when she comes to visit but since I'm not the market 1D are aiming at it matters little whether I like the album or not - it's a great success with my Grand daughter which is their target market.

An inspirational person. Pity the children of the UK don't pay more attention to what she's got to say.


Jon Richardson - Funny Magnet [DVD]
Jon Richardson - Funny Magnet [DVD]
Dvd ~ Jon Richardson
Price: £7.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny ha-ha, 27 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some of the material will be well known to anybody who has watched Live At The Apollo, but still entertaining - especially if you know anybody with OCD tendencies who is not offended by gentle teasing of the need to get things just so and in their proper place.
Jon Richardson can also be seen of course on TV's '8 out of 10 Cats'' & has been a guest on 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks' + 'Stand Up For The Week' as well as several other shows. A newcomer he is not but this is his 1st dvd.
Not rib-busting funny but my sons & their partners also enjoyed.
Would go watch him at the Comedy Store to see what else he can do, which is more than I'd say for many comedians.


LEGO Star Wars 75002: AT-RT

This review is from: LEGO Star Wars 75002: AT-RT (Toy)
Not being one of those nerdy adults who hasn't outgrown Star Wars or Lego, I wouldn't comment on the characters being 'lifelike' or in proportion, or similar to the Yoda only found in 1 scene of 1 film in the series, or whatever obscure fact somebody out there knows.
This was bought as a present for a child who loved the product for what it is without pretention or to fulfil the collectors need for ownership of everything Star Wars.
Some small bits that his Dad had to help with - Granddad's eyes are not as good as they used to be - & I'm sure some of those bits will fall off & get lost in time, but hey, this is a toy & that's what happens to toys.

Quality varies a bit; some are really good but then there'll be a very smokey cone hangs in the room.
Cones seem generally to provide a housewide cover so choose the type of cone carefully.
