Robbery [Blu-ray]
Robbery [Blu-ray]
Dvd ~ Stanley Baker
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Not bad in Blu Ray at all., 31 Oct. 2015

This review is from: Robbery [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Robbery [Blu-ray]
Not seen this film for years except on a DVD some time back. It seemed a lot of money for an old film even if Stanley Baker is in it. However I'm glad to say the Blu-Ray version is pretty good quality, a little lacking in places but considering the age of the film it's nice to see this great old British Cops 'n' Robbers film getting the treatment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let down by LED display failure., 11 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works flawlessly and performs well for the money plus unlike Samsung's and a few others the disc loads quietly and plays quietly, however at 3 months old the front display has failed, pretty poor for Pioneer.
Having now read a few forums this problem is not uncommon, needless to say I wasn't happy.
I rang Amazon and they were great,a new Blu-Ray player arrived today, hopefully this one will last a bit longer.
Well done Amazon.

1.0 out of 5 stars the first thing being the menu as it looks like it was designed by a small child with some ..., 8 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks ok, works ok, but up to a point, the first thing being the menu as it looks like it was designed by a small child with some felt tips, garish doesn't cover it but I suppose that's a small point. I have a Cyclone MK V and the same Traxdata version and these work fine.
The problems started with this when I tried to copy over anything bigger than a small music video. Obviously you need NTFS for large file transfers and that's what it was formatted too. However every time I tried it just "lost" the connection to my PC. Having read these can be picky about hard drive makes I tried 4 different makes of varying sizes and manufacture up to 1 terrabyte and still the same thing, only copying the files direct to the drive then inserting it back in the housing worked and who wants to keep doing that. Another small point if the older version found a file it couldn't play it skipped to the next, these don't, they just default back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worked well., 26 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worked well in the fact that I had no coasters but the very odd one stuttered on playback in my Blu-ray player. No problems with data storage, the price isn't bad but they seem to go out of stock very quickly, same with the 10 pack.

5.0 out of 5 stars No problems with these., 26 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having tried most Blu-ray media I have found these to be great value for money, I have tried the Printable and Non-printable versions, and have had no coasters at all.
These have worked fine for data and movies and don't stutter in my blu ray player like most of the others I have tried, the other plus side is they are reasonably priced.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ok for data, not so good for films., 24 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Every disc burnt ok but I wound up throwing half of them away. Some discs played fairly well, even so slight stuttering on nearly every one and these discs are very susceptible to fingerprints. Some of the discs had artefacts here and there during playback and would either play on, or just stop dead. I even tried doing one film twice and it stuttered in a different place. I have used Digistor discs and this hasn't happened so I'm sure it's these discs. Normally I only use Verbatim but these are still pretty expensive, it just shows that you get what you pay for. Disappointed just about sums it up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Plays ok but low quality, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A friend of mine has this on standalone Blu ray and the quality of his is superb, this one isn't. Having looked at the the capacity of the disc this one is half the size [in gigabytes] so no wonder its not as good. In other words if you have the DVD you won't be blown away by this quality wise However it has DTS which is always a plus for me.
As for House of Wax, I don't care, like the review above I bought it due to the high cost of 13 Ghosts on it's own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu Ray let down., 21 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave this 5 stars for the film alone, the blue ray format gets 1 star. Where do i start, no proper menu, no extras at all, not even the original film trailer and the transfer is pretty poor in places. It's marginally better than the dvd but it's grainy in a lot of places the saving grace being a dts soundtrack, handy if you have a surround sound system if not buy the dvd as there's very little in it. Apart from that its full of well known actors, and even more well known aircraft.I doubt if this could be made again without it being mostly cgi [Red Tails for instance]as so much went in to the making of it.
