3.0 out of 5 stars Review of Qualtex Hose for Dyson DC04 Clutch model, 22 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You get what you pay for, it seems. Whilst this Dyson-copy is much cheaper than buying an original part, the fit is not perfect. Lower assembly is a struggle to fit in, I've jammed it in as far as it will go but there's no way it will 'click' into place. It does the job, but not perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Behringer Eurorack UB502 mixer, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In terms of price & performance this is a great little mixer. It's an ideal bit of kit for a home studio set-up. I'm using it to route my TV audio, computer sound, keyboard and guitar output to an amp & speakers. I've done a bit of recording to a zoom recorder using the 2-track RCA line output and it sounds great. Even plugged in a mic so that one of my daughters could have a go at some karaoke - the XLR input on channel 1 is fine, but not great, but it's not really aimed at the recording market.

I paid £31.00 for this little gem. At this level it is superb for routing & mixing multiple audio inputs to feed an amp & speakers. It does the job more than adequately, but if you are intending to do some serious recording then you'll need to unload more cash.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful fim-making tool, 18 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fairly sturdy lightweight piece of gear ideal for consumer camcorders and DSLRs. It's very easy to use, but like all accessories this takes a bit of practice to work effectively. You will not get smooth steadicam results from using this (so don't expect miracles) but it does reduce camera shake & makes it more comfortable to hold the camera. I like it for getting low shots, or static shots close to the ground. Although I haven't used it for any sports filming I should imagine this would be ideal for skating and skiing shots.

I've docked a star for the cold shoe adaptor - it came loose and was lost very easily. Otherwise a well designed product that would be a useful accessory for amateur film-makers on a budget.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction, Withnail fans might be disappointed, 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Withnail & I (Paperback)
First of all, this is a very well written book with some interesting anecdotes thrown in, but I expected more from the BFI. In essence, the author just describes what happens on screen and occasionally throws in some information about the actors, location, or motivation for the scene he's discussing (usually some event in Bruce Robinson's life).

I find this approach a bit disappointing. Surely anyone who buys a book like this has already seen Withnail and I and needs no lengthy description of what happens on screen? I thought the whole point of BFI classics was to provide an analysis of the film, not to describe it?

Not one for the fans, unfortunately.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Film - very poor transfer, 12 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scarlet Street [DVD] (DVD)
This review is NOT for the film. It is for the quality of transfer to the DVD. Beware, the visual quality of this DVD is shockingly bad.

1.0 out of 5 stars Transfer is hopeless!, 6 Mar. 2012
The transfer quality is appalling. Like many other reviewers have said this is really poor quality. I'm surprised that such a classsic film hasn't been restored properly, more to the point I'm sure they could have got a better copy to make the DVD from!

Since ordering these about a month ago I'm now down to my last three bulbs. One bulb lasted barely in hour before it gave up the ghost. AVOID!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT buy this machine - it LEAKS!!, 5 Sept. 2010
This seemed like a great purchase for the first few weeks. Unfortunately it started leaking all over the place. Took it back & got another replacement (same make & model) a few weeks later, exactly the same problem - coffee leaking all over the kitchen top.

How a reputable company can get away with selling such a dud item is beyond me. The leaking is clearly a design fault. No amount of regular cleaning would stop the leaks, it would just dribble all over the top of the pot and down the side of the machine.

An absolute waste of time & money. Read the reviews here - almost everyone is having the same problem. LEAK, LEAK, LEAK. To anyone thinking of buying this product spare yourself the time, hassle & money and go and buy anything but this! I won't be trusting DeLonghi products after this disaster.

1.0 out of 5 stars DVD transfer is VERY POOR (the film is brilliant), 15 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Goodfellas [1990] [DVD] (DVD)
****This review relates to the 1990 Goodfellas DVD transfer****

PLEASE don't misunderstand me: Goodfellas is probably the best gangster film ever made. My complaint is about this particularly AWFUL TRANSFER to DVD (1990).

The DVD is a flipper. You have to turn it over half way through. Not only that, that whole thing is letterboxed and in poor resolution. This is an absolutely criminal transfer for such a significant movie. AVOID.
