5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect if previous owner of your property has taken the amplifier!, 17 Sept. 2015
I've recently moved into a new house (built approx. 2005) and very quickly found that Freeview TV reception was extremely poor with many missing channels and blocky video on the few channels that could be received. I was fearing the worst and worrying about the cost of a new aerial, however a quick look in the loft revealed a 4-way Antiference mast-head amplifier unit. One of the 4 coaxial inputs indicated that it was used for both sending TV signal down to that particular output and also for receiving power back up into the loft in order to power the amplifier on the masthead.

After tracing the coaxial cable labeled 'TV/Power' cable back down through the loft it led to one of the bedrooms, however no power supply was found in this room. The previous owner must have taken the amplifier with them - perhaps thinking that it was an ordinary TV signal booster. After fitting the missing power supply Freeview signal was restored to all the TV's, with 100% signal strength and signal quality. Superb!

Very good cover. Protects the Kindle well and the auto-wake function is a great feature.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor straps, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before purchasing this bag take a look at the reverse picture and the design of the straps in particular. They're very small and thin, not padded like other backpacks.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not suitable for normal sized adults, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Who exactly is this bag designed for? it says 'unisex-adult' in the product title but the bag don't sit comfortably over the shoulders of either myself or my partner. The bag is placed too high on the back, so it rubs against your neck. The straps are very stiff and don't fit against the body well. expected significantly better quality for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just good for nails!, 21 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I originally bought this for my girlfriend to remove her stubborn gel nails, but ended up using it to remove the sticky left over residue from a window frame that I'd taped up with duck-tape in order to stop a draught, then to clean and prep prior to applying sealant. It was so effortless and did a fantastic job of removing the residue. I also used it to remove some permanent marker from a wall.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed by the anti-fog!, 27 May 2011
I was impressed by how comfortable these goggles are and I found that they provided a very good seal around my face so didn't leak whilst using them. The goggles also stayed secure and the straps did not loosen whilst using them. I was however extremely disappointed by how much they fogged up after only a few minutes use, which is why I have rated the googles only 2 stars.

The Amazon description claims the goggles offer 'incredible moisture control using Fogbuster technology, guaranteeing consistent clarity of vision combined' -- certainly not in my experience! I could hardly swim 50 metres before having to remove the goggles to clear out the moisture that had built up on the lens, it was like swimming with severe cataracts. It became so foggy whilst swimming that I would actually consider it dangerous and wearing the goggles seriously hindered the enjoyment of my swim.

I purchased these goggles to replace a lost pair of Aqua Sphere Kayenne Goggles, I'm going to return these and buy another set of Aqua Spheres instead as they are superior in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has real potential, but the production lets it down..., 14 Jun. 2006
Let me start by saying that the navigation on the DVD is a real nightmare. When I first load the DVD you're presented with a series of options on film reels with no obvious way to move between them. It's such a let down when you settle down to watch a DVD then can't figure out how to use it. Clicking on the options doesn't work, eventually I discovered that you press left/right keyboard keys (probably just left/right on a DVD remote) you can navigate slowly through the options.

The Brixton Academy gig video is amazing. The sound is the major winner here, in amazing quality 5.1 surround sound which sounds absolutely stunning considering it's a live gig. There are currently some clips from the Brixton gig on the MTV Overdrive website if you want to check it out before buying. The video is a little grainy due to the low light, but that's probably to be expected from a live gig DVD like this.

I was at the gig at the Newcastle Carling Academy which is on the DVD. The atmosphere there was amazing, but the DVD really doesn't show the true excitment of Maximo Park playing their biggest gig yet in their home region. It's recorded in black and white and looks as if it's been done with remote controlled cameras, with very sudden and often uncontrolable camera movements trying to track Paul around the stage. So overall the Newcastle video is a bit of a disappointment, but could have potentially been fantastic if the video and sound quality were improved.

On the other hand the BBC Sessions CD is amazing, it's really interesting to hear the band in such good quality acoustic studio environment. The acoustic version of Natalie Imbruglia's 'Shiver' is stunning.

There's also a self-made documentary entitled 'Found on Film' which follows the band around. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but it's gets a real intimate insight into the band as it develops.

Overall it's a good buy if you're really into Maximo Park, it's probably worth it just for the BBC Sessions disk if you're a huge fan. The production quality of the DVD is just a bit of a disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't be disappointed!, 1 Mar. 2005
I've just got this book and in my opinion it is the best book you can get for passing your theory test. It has clear and sensibile questions, along with the 4 multiple choice questions - just the same as in the test.
It is simply great value for the amount of content and quality of the information contained within the book.
It explains the answers in great detail, which is great if your not sure why you got that question wrong. As others have said, this is definitely a must-have for all theory test takers. If you have any brothers, family or friends you can lend them the book once you've passed!
It has the highway code in the back as well, along with all the road signs and road markings you will need to know.
