4.0 out of 5 stars A handy non-slip mat with a comfortable wrist pad, 7 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A handy non-slip mat with a comfortable wrist pad. It has a rather small mouse area which is ok if you have your mouse sensitivity set to "high" but tedious if you prefer it set to "low".

4.0 out of 5 stars A good product but without instructions, 7 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good product but without instructions. You have to guess how to instal it initially, but installation is very simple (just unplug the transmitter from the mouse, plug it into your computer's USB port, put 2 AAA batteries into the mouse, switch on the computer and mouse and the rest is automatic). The ON/OFF switch is very tiny and it is unclear whether you need to switch the mouse off after each session to conserve battery power or whether switch-off is automatic.

Good price and prompt delivery. Well packaged. Much better than many other marker pens, being truly permanent on most surfaces, long lasting, and with a good tip.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very funny low-budget film, 20 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very funny low-budget film, unfairly criticised by some as amateurish. A good caricature of an aspect of life in the mid 20th century scottish industrial midlands, seen through the eyes of a group of bored unemployed youths seeking a quick path to wealth. Lots of subtle little visual jokes that might easily be missed. The restored original dialogue is very welcome - I haven't yet watched the version with the dubbed "posh" dialogue but don't much relish the idea. A triumph for Bill Forsyth's principle of understatement ("less is more").

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, compact, light and well-constructed, 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Edelrid 6 Point Crampon (Sports)
Not suitable for ice or snow climbing but ideal for adding a bit more security when winter walking in Britan.
Much cheaper, smaller, lighter and easier to fit than full 12-point crampons, so probably more appropriate for general winter walking in British mountains. The slightly shorter spikes and absence of lobster claws make them less likely to catch on gaiters or accidentally stab the user in the calf. Adjustment to boot size is quick and easy. Fitting is quick and secure. An anti-balling plate is included in the sole. The material build-standard look very good (but I haven't used them much yet, so can't comment about lifespan). Being so much lighter and compact than full crampons, these are much more likely to be in my rucksac if I come across unexpected icy slopes or hard snow on a winter walk. They fold together neatly into the tough little zipped bag (included) so shouldn't need spike-protectors. Prompt and well-packaged delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value item, promptly delivered, 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Considerably cheaper than the Hoya equivalent but of perfectly good construction with a nice smooth action.
A small knob might have been helpful on the rotary part, to help operating the polariser (it's a bit small and fiddly) but that isn't a big problem and many other makes are just the same.
No sign of vignetting when screwed into the UV filter already on my Lumix G5 14-42mm lens on the wideangle setting.
Well packaged and promptly delivered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prompt delivery and a very good price, but not exactly as described., 2 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lens received promptly and was in pristine condition. However it was only in plain white packaging with no Panasonic paperwork. It had been described as 'new' when I ordered it and was also described as 'new' on the invoice. When I was invited to review this item after purchase, it was described as 'split' and 'not in original packaging'. As I spotted no indication of this when I ordered it, I am not very pleased and will not be buying again from this supplier. I have revisited the amazon website and still see no warning that this lens is not strictly 'new'. I don't know how I stand regarding guarantee from Panasonic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorky Park film review, 20 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Gorky Park [DVD] (DVD)
You might find this film "plodding" if you want lots of screeching tyres, blazing guns and car crashes in Police films. Gorky Park has none of these yet is a riveting thriller following an under-resourced Russian policeman (Renko, portrayed excellently by Hurt) investigating three baffling murders in a Moscow park. Lee Marvin gives a chilling performance as the ruthless and manipulative villain. The supporting actors contribute splendidly to the atmosphere without the resorting to corny Russian accents. Rikki Fulton puts off his comedy hat and is surprisingly convincing as the self-serving KGB officer. Alexi Sayle too turns from comedy and oozes slime as the black marketeer. Michael Elphick is the ideal subordinate to Renko and his ruthless assassination is all the more shocking for its suddenness and lack of gore. The slight underplaying of the roles and scenes enhances the authentic atmosphere of the film. A great film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transatlantic Seesions 4, 7 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fine follow-on to TS-3, although the venue is not so attractive - they seem to be playing in a dungeon in Glen Lyon rather than the fine old house used for TS-3 in the lovely hills above Killiekrankie.
The line-up is impressive with many of the old stalwarts (looking slightly greyer) and the welcome addition of Emily Smith.
The formula of TS-3 is (happily) retained giving a good informal session atmosphere without hiding the fact that they are surrounded by all the media technology. The commentary and asides from the players add to the appreciation of the performances and there is no sense of domination by the "stars".
This DVD issue will be welcomed by UK viewers frustrated by the original broadcasts being crazily scheduled after football programmes, with all the consequent delays and upsets to video recordings.
