4.0 out of 5 stars Illegal in the EU from September 2014, 21 Aug 2014
Without wishing to sound like a Daily Mail reader or Nigel Farage, the EU interferes in our lives a little too much sometimes. This cleaner is one of the ones that will be banned. So if you want a really loud and strong cleaner, better get a move on.

Also, if you need real light bulbs they are readily available in many supermarkets once again. Don't put up with the "low energy" inferior quality ones if you don't want to,

4.0 out of 5 stars Paid for in Groats, 29 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are actually Curtina Hudson curtains; that's not made clear in the description.

They are lovely curtains for the price, but it took us a while to calculate the measurements we needed. These item was only available in "inches" which is about 2.54 cm. Given that the only people who use "inches" now live in nursing homes, and thus don't need to order curtains or carpets, I think Amazon and its traders need to move into the 21st Century.

Price: 69.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fan, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was hot and everything else was out of stock so I had to buy a larger fan than intended. What a lucky accident - this model is much better than the tower fan it replaced.

Easy to assemble, and not very noisy. Lovely bit of kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars SCSI Problem Solved, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Knowing little about SCSI I managed to work out that the SCSI card in my PC was 68 bit, and that the spare drive I had was an 80 bit SCA. This little gadget enabled the SCA 80 drive to work with my SCSI card; the adaptor includes a power socket, since SCA includes power (68 pin does not).

One tip - try removing the ID setting jumper, it's normally not needed, and attempting to set it with the jumper caused my card to not recognise the drive.

5.0 out of 5 stars IMDB is a great resource, 31 Aug 2013
This review is from: Byzantium [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
I'm giving 5 stars to IMDB and every other movie reviewing site. As this movie is not yet released on DVD, you should visit such a site to read or write reviews. When the PRODUCT is available, I'll be happy read and perhaps write reviews of said product - information such as how many discs, video and audio quality, extras etc. So, keep up the 5 star work IMDB and others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bundle, 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to give this five stars, even though I was unlucky; one of the two RAM chips was faulty. Once that problem had been diagnosed and solved in less time than it will take me to write this review, all was well.

I find the business of installing a CPU, paste and cooler to be a task too far for me, so a pre-installed powerful bundle such as this is perfect.

An old ATX case and 500W PSU were made available to me, so I now have a low cost powerful PC. Window Server 2003 installed most of the drivers manually (the Asus installer does not support that old OS) but when I tried Vista everything installed easily.

Recommended for low-end PC builders (like me) and above.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robust and Reasonable, 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ah the joys of self-assembly. No flat pack nightmares here though, an easy job, helped by the clear instructions.

When assembled, the arm is robust and not unsightly. The vertically swivelling last joint was quite loose on mine; the plastic cover to the right (as looking towards the rear of the monitor) is easily removed and you can adjust the tension.

Now I can look directly ahead as I work, better for my posture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Listening at its finest, 18 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cartographer (Audio CD)
I stumbled across E.S. Posthumus and bought this double CD at the start of 2013. I keep trying to stop listening to it, in the car, at work all day, and even as I fall asleep, but it's so addictive that I've failed!

The language baffled me at first; it's actually a made-up language (like Klingon, Naavi or Dothraki) but seems to be Italian and Latin like. The singer on the first CD, Luna Sans, has a lovely voice.

I'm sad enough to have re-arranged the instrumental tracks on the second CD into the same order as the first (vocal) one, to go onto my car's MP3 player.

It's tragic that one of the men behind this music recently passed away.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Retro Smartphone, 2 Mar 2012
The iPhone 4 has a small but high res screen, and comes with sub-average quality headphones (which I replaced with some Sony ones for about 15.

I experienced none of the reception problems that I had heard about. I had no trouble using the app store from the phone, no trouble using wireless networks or 3G.

The cons:-

1) The camera is a poor 5MP, and the image and video quality are not that good.
2) The only way to move music etc onto the phone from your PC or Mac is via the iTunes application. This enforces a lack of choice on the user, and I would not choose to use iTunes if I did not have to.
3) The screen is not large by today's standards. The design of the phone looks what it is, in 2012 - old, outdated and about to be replaced by a new one from Apple (one presumes).
4) The old iPhone gripes of a fixed battery and no smart cards.

A good friend loaned me an Android phone with a large screen; bye bye iPhone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling TV (no spoilers here present), 22 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, I should say that there ARE indeed English subtitles on the 10 episodes of the second season, and there are none on the special features.

Without revealing any plot issues, the second season is as compelling as the first. Some new characters are introduced, and the story moves through the 1980s. There is of course violence and some nudity; not a show for the prudish or squeamish.

I bought this DVD set because there is no sign, as far as I am aware, of Sky Arts showing season two in the near future.

Again, without revealing anything, I should like to assure you that there are no unanswered questions; the series is concluded in these 10 episodes.

Update: Sky Arts did indeed screen season two in 2012 and will probably show it again.
