Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 1 [Blu-ray&hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Patrick Stewart

This could be rectified at least temporarily by disconnecting and reconnecting, though this happened with increasing frequency. Finally the docking mechanism itself periodically would not work.
In spite of careful handling, the product is in my view of poor standard and although not hugely expensive, it should work more effectively over a longer period than this. I will not be buying another Bose product and would… Read more
