TT3D: Closer to the Edge (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + D&hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Guy Martin

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 8 Nov 2013
As a fan of the TT for many years and having been to the island in the past I thought this might be of interest; I was disappointed.
The voice over is American and emphasis is placed on the many crashes over the years so you can tell where the makers are coming from - like so many modern documentaries it is pure soap opera. You will not find any technical details in it.
There are hardly any of those wonderful `on bike' shots of a lap that you can see elsewhere and what there is has the camera pointing downwards. Pathetic. The editors have ants in their pants or have been taking some substance because the scissors come out every ten seconds - if you have been raised on pop videos… Read more
Ryobi Articulating Pole Hedge Cutter 400 Watt by Ryobi
2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly designed, 4 July 2013
I have been using this for about two years now and must say that it is a very poor design. Imagine a normal hedge trimmer which is attached to a cheaply made heath-robinson like handle. The best thing I can say about it is that it cuts well but that is all.

5.0 out of 5 stars The originals., 21 Nov 2011
This is super. I was not expecting much in the way of audio fidelity with such old recordings but I was very pleasantly surprised; the sound is excellent with quite an extended frequency response. It is interesting to hear the slight differences in production and in songs in some cases but if you are familiar with the later film versions of these shows then one thing you may notice is the absolutely perfect diction of the singers; I presume that is because stage performers have to be understood in the back row of the theatre; I found here that I could understand every single word of the lyrics. All this at a bargain price - don't miss it!
