The British TV Sitcom Quiz Book
The British TV Sitcom Quiz Book
Price: £4.72

1.0 out of 5 stars Unusable on Kindle, 19 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Separation of questions and answers between the front and back of the book makes this completely unusable as an e-quiz-book. Hyperlinks could solve this so easily, but as it is - no good at all!

1.0 out of 5 stars Thank goodness for the 14 day return window., 21 Mar. 2016

£27 is not cheap, yet the build quality most certainly is. Low end, lightweight Chinese made tat, with a QR code which points to a download which certainly does not look reputable.
I couldn't get it working on my Galaxy S7, although I am prepared to accept that maybe my tech skills are not up the task.

1.0 out of 5 stars It is not Arkanoid....., 31 July 2015

This review is from: Arkanoid (App)
....and it doesn't play particularly well.
The graphics are not very well drawn, the movement of the ball thing is not smooth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money., 3 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good value set of earphones. Very competitive price with reasonable sound quality, although a slightly strange fit which required very careful placement to get a decent seal within the ear.

- Good bass reproduction
- Overall sound is good (for the price), but is muddy when compared with my older Panasonic RP-HJE600

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent print quality, if you don't mind waiting...and waiting.., 6 Mar. 2013
This is a nice looking unit with decent print quality. However the design is marred by a very noisy creaky internal mechanism, and painfully slow startup.
There are also some very strange design limitations, such as a paper output tray which glides out automatically, however requires you to push it back in manually (against the motor)if you wish to put it away.
I cannot help but feel that the design effort has been mainly cosmetic and that underneath the shiny plastic is an inkjet mechanism that was actually designed in 1998.

Pros
- Nice ergonomic design
- Color Touchscreen
- Good print quality
- Internal paper trays

Cons
- Very slow startup (several minutes)
- Very noisy / creaky mechanism
- Some illogical design choices/limitations

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost brilliant. But only 1/2 of it works, 31 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was really pleased with this item when it arrived. Well packaged, includes a Wii remote cover, and at a bargain price point.
The wii remote works fine, but the nunchuck part doesn't.

2.0 out of 5 stars Amateurish, meandering and not without error, 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a fairly avid reader of books in the popular science domain, I found this hard going. Not because the subject matter is difficult (it really isn't , or at least the basic concepts certainly aren't), more so due to a confused and meandering writing style and organisation which does little to explain either clearly or succinctly.
The thought experiments in particular are poor, and in at least one early example concerning bodies moving in unison (with no motion relative to each other), are flatly contradicted by the math.
It is a pity, because the intent of the author is admirable, but he seriously needs to improve his editorial skills if other books are forthcoming.
