5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent TV nostalgia, 25 July 2013
I recall liking this series in the 60's, but couldn't remember any details. Now I know why I liked it. I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to recall those black and white days with these stories about a psychiatrist (played superbly by Herbert Lom) who has to help patients who exhibit strange behavioural symptoms. Each episode is about one specific case, fictional but based loosely on real-life cases. The stories are interesting in themselves, but also reveal the social conditions of the time - very middle class settings, constant smoking, the parties, and oh the dancing!

The video quality is very good, and that haunting theme tune is just wonderful.

I removed the metal case holder the drive was mounted in and could connect the cable to the drive, but the plastic case provided to hold the drive was slightly too narrow. It wouldn't fit in. (It's a 300 Gb Fujitsu drive.) That said, I managed to access the drive without further problems, just resting it carefully on the plastic case.

Overall I'm happy with this laptop. With the dual i5 processors, 6Gb memory and 500Gb hard drive it'll suit my needs. I don't intend playing 3D games on it so the integrated graphics is fine for me. It was delivered on the day promised, and I went through the setup without any real trouble connecting to the internet through the wireless LAN. I tested the USB and camera card connections, CD playing and DVD playing. After resetting the region code for the DVD, all worked as expected.

The build quality is good. The only drawbacks are that the touchpad is positioned left of centre and the black plastic on the case readily shows fingermarks.

As for windows 8, I have some… Read more
