2.0 out of 5 stars The quality of the vinyl is very good, but nothing special and, 12 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to agree with the reviewer on Amazon.com. This item is NOT numbered and probably not as much of a 'limited edition' as they claim. The quality of the vinyl is very good, but nothing special and, like the other reviewer there is damage inside the box to some of the albums, which will undoubtably be difficult to get refunded.
Very poor. In short, don't waste your money - if you really want these albums save approximately £100 and by the CDs!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great album, but over-priced., 18 Nov. 2016
(This review relates to the 3CD / 1 Blu-Ray box set, not the vinyl reissue).
This is still a great, great album and perhaps even sounds fresher than it did when originally released. However, since getting it this morning I cannot help but feel massively let down. The extra tracks are nice, sometimes interesting and the live set is in particular good. But for £45? Absolutely not. This is vastly over-priced for what you actually get and is, frankly, a rip-off. Who know how much extra cash they will be able to squeeze out of us of us for the 'special' edition of Automatic for the People? The original CD is for sale for just under £4 on Amazon. Buy it - if you don't already have it - and save yourself £40-odd.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip-Off, 28 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Terrible - a rip-off in the continuing sub-standard re-issue series by Springsteen. This trend began with the risible 18 Tracks, the Wal-Mart greatest hits, the Australian tour greatest hits, the re-issues of various albums with one or two extra tracks (e.g. the Seeger sessions) and substandard box sets. For a good reissue series have a look at what King Crimson are doing, or Dylan's Bootleg Series. How many more times do we need the same tracks issued with a different cover picture? The demos are terrible, and there was a reason not so many years ago Springsteen tried to take out an injunction against the release of this, or similar, material ('Before The Fame') - now we can hear it for ourselves. And now look where we are. Total rip-off and sadly no different to recent reissues. A dreadful way to treat the fans - and in terms of the book and CD release compare the quality to Elvis Costello's releases last year, where the 2CD wasn't, like this, an entirely predictable selection of tired hits with some risible demos but a considered and slightly alternative trawl through his career. Springsteen should be ashamed of himself.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, 26 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You get what you pay for. The item is advertised as working with most TV; unfortunately, with a Sony Bravia - a common TV - the bracket gets in the way of being able to plug in a SCART lead for a laser disc player; similarly, the component connections (for a DVD player) are inaccessible. So the only things we could plug in were two HDMI cables.

The biggest issues, however, as with the unit itself. It is awkward to assemble, despite some of the other reviews here. We also had a faulty part in our unit - the bar which secures the TV to the unit. So, as supplied, the TV can freely and quite easily slide along - and potentially off - the end of the bracket. This we have now secured with bolts / clamps of our own.

We also had some minor problems with screws, etc., a few of which were missing. Easy to replace if you have them around the house. Don't try and get them from the seller, though, they will refer you to Amazon.

So, in all, a poor choice of item. I can't recommend it to anyone as the whole purchase has turned out to be very poor. Save up and buy something better - this is, from our point of view, a purchase that turned out to be a false economy and we regret buying it. We will dump it and replace it with something decent as soon as we can.

We can't recommend this at all as, just outside the warranty period (11 months) it CAUGHT FIRE. Avoid.

1.0 out of 5 stars Scrap, 17 May 2013
The poorest laptop I have ever bought. The keyboard failed within days and DVD drive quickly followed it, not being able to record anything and failing to even play most discs. The laptop also regularly overheats and slows down badly when using anything with a lot of graphics - streaming is a particular issue. The single worst feature though is the connection to the wireless internet, which continually drops out - the worst problem comes when the laptop is switched to standby - every single time the laptop is placed onto standby it cuts the connection, which can only be reconnected by using the Windows "repair" function.

Avoid.
