BT Dual-Band Wi-Fi Extender 600 by BT
(First one I received) didn't work at all. I have BT Homehub-5 type A so I assumed this thing would be compatible. Wrong. Couldn't even set it up using any of the three methods (WPS button, WiFi to PC, Ethernet to PC). Returning it.

(Later) I have uprated this review from 1 to 3 stars as the replacement device I got worked as advertised. As always a good and efficient returns & replacement policy from Amazon.
Pentel P200 Series Auto Mechanical Pencil Set of 4&hellip by Pentel
The photo shows that amongst the 4 you are going to get two 0.5mm P205 pencils, which is what you get, but the text says you are going to get one 0.5mm and one 0.3mm P203. I was not that bothered as 0.5mm is what I use most frequently, but if you want 0.3mm then beware.

Also, as has been mentioned in other reviews, these arrive in a bag without Pentel packaging. They all lack the metal needle in the eraser used to clear the point which all Pentel pencils you buy in the shops have - makes me wonder if they are genuine. Anyway, they work OK.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull, 6 Nov 2013
I'd never heard him on R4 or read him in the Oldie but as I am interested in the theatrical era he is from I thought I'd enjoy the book. Sadly not, it is really dull and quite poorly written and offers very little insight at all - one of those cases where he seems to have been over-praised simply because he is over-eighty.
