5.0 out of 5 stars Music and Product Perfection, 11 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A must for all Beatles completists and also those who just like brilliant, timeless classic music.

There was a curious glitch on Amazon's part whereby someone changed the description just prior to release which caused a major panic for some of us but thankfully this is as I ordered - a remastered version of the CD album and two utterly brilliant companion Blu Rays.

The packaging is excellent and includes a really nice book covering each and every track and video.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the drama queen reviews!, 4 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Every Bond film on Blu Ray PLUS UV copies of each - all for little more than £3 per film. Yes, the packaging is minimal but suspect that's partially intentional in a "less is more" way but also it allows for a stupidly good price.

It should be said there is an issue in regard to the UV copies in that if you choose Flixster, they seem to have a technical issue whereby the films are only available in SD format but this is a known problem and in the process of being addressed.

If you want luxurious, environmentally-unfriendly packaging then avoid but if you just want watch the entire Bond cannon, go ahead and buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars No UV as code expired June 2014, 21 July 2015

Wrongly advertised as including a UV copy when in reality the code expired in June 2014 so is actually just a Blu Ray. Notes do say "Digital Copy code may have expired" when in fact it did a LONG TIME AGO.

2.0 out of 5 stars A film too far, 2 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having watched and enjoyed the first film I eagerly awaited the sequel - a wait that simply wasn't worth it.

The laughs are thin on the ground and the storyline is also lacking. I felt hugely let down and also glad I didn't make the effort to go and see it at the cinema.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing but they should have quit while they were ahead..............................

Bought this to replace a similar product bought from Ikea several years ago. Assumed it was pretty similar, only to discover it was a very cheap version and will probably replace.

4.0 out of 5 stars A return for form and great format, 15 Jan. 2013

There have been plenty of positive reviews so all I will say is that they are completely deserved.

I'm delighted that this has now been confirmed as a Triple Play with no UV :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect TV for the bedroom, 2 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Needed a new TV for the bedroom for occasional use so didn't want to spend over the odds. Given the price and manufacturer this seemed an ideal choice.

Arrived in normally prompt Amazon time and was very easy to get up and running. I did need some advice from a friend to enable me to link it into my Sky signal (as I had with the previous TV) but that proved to be a simple process.

So far so good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 20 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought a Sony CMT-BX70DBi DAB Micro HiFi System with Built-In iPod Dock earlier in the year but was unable to get any DAB signal. After numerous and failed attempts I contacted Sony who basically said I would need to purchase an additional aerial.

I wasn't happy with this as I already had two other DAB radios (Pure and Goodmans), both of which functioned perfectly well using the basic aerial that was suppled but, wanting to use the DAB element of the Micro HiFi, I looked for a suitable product.

This Philex product was recommended and proved to be an excellent choice. Easy to connect and unobtrusive, it achieved what Sony alone could not.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be fantastic, 20 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to provide me with both a stylish iPod dock and DAB capability. The fact that the unit has a CD player was a bonus. Most attractive of all was that it's a Sony (= quality). Sorted.

The reality is that the iPod dock is great but the DAB simply failed to tune and so, after several attempts and an email enquiry to Sony, I was forced to buy an additional aerial. Some will say that isn't Sony's problem and simply the consequence of living in a poor reception area. However...........

I already have a Pure and Goodmans DAB with ipod dock elsewhere in the house and both of these work fine using the basic aerial supplied, suggesting I DO have a decent DAB signal and instead pointing the finger of blame at Sony.

The internal Philex - 27741R - Indoor DAB Aerial aerial is brilliant and so finally I now have DAB through my lovely Sony Micro but it's a shame that it couldn't match the Pure and Goodmans model without a bit of help (and additional cost).
