1.0 out of 5 stars A poor product and awful service, 18 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the digital photo screen as a Christmas present - from the first the SD card injection mechanism did not work - I contacted the supplier through Amazon, but was expected to pay return postage by Exclusive 7 (9.25) - Amazon sent an e-mail to the supplier, which they ignored - finally, I sent the item back my cost - the supplier did not replace it or make a refund - I have now received a refund through Amazon's guarantee scheme.
Throughout this business Amazon have been extremely helpful; Exclusive 7 have been awful.


No Title Available

1.0 out of 5 stars A squalid and cynical rip-off, 30 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On the back of this book the claim is made that "Hesperus Books represents a new publishing paradigm" - it doesn't! It is a squalid and cynical rip-off. What is offered as a series of articles simply lifted from Wikipedia. They claim to have that articles are "curated into cohesive, relevant, and informative books" - they are not - the editing is haphazard and inconsistent, betraying ignorance of the subject. Some entries have almost no detail and about people of little consequence in the field; others, that might be interesting - Bowlby, for example, who is not a psychologist, but some connections can be made - are unbalanced. The Bowlby article has too much largely irrelevant biographical data and too little about the development of attachment (easily available on Wikipedia). This material could have been put together in half an hour by a school student; at over 13 for 88 pages, it is a shoddy little rip-off.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning! SpeedUpMyPC, 15 Feb 2011
This review is from: Speed Up My PC (PC) (CD-ROM)
Easy to use and fairly comprehensibly disastrous. After you have negotiated your way round the efforts to immediately upgrade and part with many dollars - having already paid for the product - it gets down to work. My PC was far from being choked up, so, at the end of the process, I didn't see any improvement in speed of application launching.
I did see that , amongst some other minor glitches and losses, it had rendered my DragonDictate Preferred 10 application unusable. It would not load, because some of the user files had been wiped as had the downloaded upgrade. In fact, all stored downloads had been cleared.
Having tried various ways of remedying the difficulty caused by Speed Up My PC 2010 (PC), I had to use System Restore to go back to before I had installed it. DragonDictate would still not load, so I had to uninstall and upgrade.
About two and a half hours work, some anxiety and frustration and a waste of 10. Needless to say, I have not reinstalled SpeedUpMy PC. Be warned!

1.0 out of 5 stars Snobbish, silly and smug, 21 Sep 2006
The tone is sneering and negative with few examples of excellence or invention - yet the text is ladened with solecisms.

If you want effective guidance on punctuation, try David Crystal's books or the splendid "Mind the Stop" by G. V. Carey.
