5.0 out of 5 stars Tried and Tested in Wales June 2014, 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wore these during 'Race the Sun 2014' in Brecon (cycle, climb, canoe, cycle event); lots of sun, lots of fast downhill cycling, some emotional hill climbing (Pen y Fan Horseshoe including Cribyn) and some torrential rain. Very happy overall; comfortable glasses, lightweight and durable. I like the style though confess I didn't change the lenses during the event - I liked the polarised lenses anyway which worked well in low light (not too dark). Happy chappy with sore legs!

1.0 out of 5 stars 4x6 Print Not Working, 9 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A4 print is no problem but 4x6 is a shocker. All my first photo prints have failed. The paper inches its way out of the feed tray and during the last quarter of the print cycle it starts to twist and turn, seriously, it starts to rotate at different angles and distorts the last inch or so of the image.

I haven't read of others experiencing this problem so perhaps I have just been unlucky? Sending it back as there is nothing more I can try to make it work, will try something different.

1.0 out of 5 stars Power Failure!, 28 Dec 2009
The adapter lasted 2 days after Christmas. Given to my daughter to power her TeckNet iPod speaker it stopped working, having caused some alarm due to the very strong smell of smoke. I was curious to start with as the USB slot seemed loose, not the snug fitting plug-in I would normally expect with any USB device. The adapter has clearly burned-out inside and still smells strongly of smoke. Not impressed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Quality, 6 Oct 2006
The i-deck is a compact speaker system which is sleek in design and pleasing to look at. It feels like a robust, high quality piece of hardware and is very simple to set-up and start playing. I regard the sound quality as excellent and am very pleased with this purchase - particularly as I first looked at this in 2005 and it cost over 240, and now it is 99. You can't really go wrong at this price (it is still more on ebay) so I would strongly recommend this to anyone who wishes to find somewhere nice for their iPod to sit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Theirs truly is the glory!, 3 Oct 2006
I love this film for its historical context. The acting is pretty poor - and that's what makes it great, no Holywood stars in it for the money! The actors are soldiers who actually fought at Arnhem and returned after the war to help record their little piece of history. If you want a window into the past then look no further (it was filmed in Arnhem among the post-war ruins) and uses newsreel footage as well as re-enactment). If you enjoy military history without the Hollywod frills then this is a must for the collection. It is an often emotional tale - especially when you ponder for any length of time the number of men who never returned; Theirs is the Glory!
