Wireless Weather Station Diva Weatherboy Silver by TFA-Dostmann
We have had one of these for a few years. Great when it is working but a lot of the time all the display shows for the outside sensor is three dashes. We've tried everything in terms of checking battery connections etc but it just seems to be a fault in the unit. We got one of the landscape display units for my parents and that one works perfectly so my advice is to give this one a miss and go for one of those. I expect the 5 star reviewers here had only just received their units and not bothered to update their reviews. Ether that or we were very unlucky to get a dodgy one. You decide ....

Hawkwind - In Concert [DVD]
When I bought this I had an old DVD player and thought that it was my player's fault that I could only watvh this on my laptop. However, now with a modern player that plays 3D blu-ray and everything else you can imagine this DVD will not play. The menu comes up but nothing will actually play.

The concert itself is great and I'd give a good 4 stars for that although I'd prefer Arthur Brown not to be messing up Sonic Attack (and reading it from a sheet of paper!!!). The live versions of Aero Space Age Inferno and The Watcher are well worth seeing. It is a pity that the manufacturers of this DVD are a bunch of cowboys who ought to be back out on the ranch frying hamburgers… Read more
