Husband is gluten intolerant and loves these crispbreads. In fact I think they make a tasty little snack with a topping for anybody

5.0 out of 5 stars diplomacy, 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Diplomacy (Toy)
Got this game as a present. After reading some lower star ratings I am surprised by the reasoning. Yes it does take a bit to understand the rules but not hours and hours. It is a fun game to play and can be left for a while before turning back to it. The only thing is it says it is the only game where luck plays no part. Well it does not with the exception of where you start, as some starting points are definitely better than others.

I bought these tablets as it got a high star rating from others and must say I am not disappointed. The tablets are so easy to use and it does leave it all nice and clean,

I bought a few toppers but found this one to be the best. It is of a reasonable thickness and seems to keep its shape.

As title. Spoilt a bit by the awkward crown wheel which does not give a noticeable click when changing position.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 15 Mar. 2013

Great illustrations and lots of short stories which you can believe are true. I suppose some of the old poachers recounting some of their exploits might be given to a bit of embellishment but I personally didn't see much of this myself. A great read.

Can't fault this. Good value. Used for a Nikon D90. The car charging facility is useful as I didn't get one with the D90.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misrepresented, badly packaged, low quality, 15 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
MISREPRESENTED: Suspect suitability for hard drives and USB drives ??: The haphazardly stuck manufacturers label inside the lid identified this product as only UL-Classification which, according to the multi-product, multi-language, "Owners Manual" is specifically for documents only. If this product was to the superior ETL-Classification then the manufacturer would label it as such - and then it would also be suitable for magnetic media like hard drives and USB drives. But it is not, at least not according to the manufacturers own label and own documentation. This is either very sloppy and unprofessional manufacturing OR it is, in view of the valuable and often priceless data which people may store in it, manifestly negligent.

BADLY PACKAGED: I agree with the large number of other 1* comments.

LOW QUALITY: I agree with the other 1* comments and would add: Sales info cleverly avoided mentioning whether or not it would survive the inevitable fall or crushing in debris which often happens in a fire. Would I trust anything valuable to be kept in this - absolutely not.

1.0 out of 5 stars Noisy. Noise. Not silent. Not even relatively quiet., 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I, like most people in my opinion, buy external drives of a small physical size firstly because the look neater, wherever they are placed, and secondly because they can fit more easily in a safe store media chest and thirdly because in the rare event that I actually do want to use one on a train or on holiday, they are easier to carry around.
This drive fits that requirement and it doesn't have an odd shape.
However, the overriding factor for me is whether or not we have to accept any IT item if it is in any way noisy. Luckily, today, we don't. This drive is noisier than any of the 5 other drives we use on a day to day basis, 4 or which are Seagate, none of which are current models unfortunately. The noise is not huge and it is not a defective drive - but it is none the less a noisy drive in today's terms and therefore unacceptable.

Therefore this little piggy is going back to market.

Oh, I nearly forgot: At the time of writing this it was sold as having a 120cm USB lead in the box. It came with a 45cm lead: Of no use to me as i already have several and only ever use one, and only on very rare occasions.

1.0 out of 5 stars dark skies, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a series to watch and came across this one. I bought it based on the many superb reviews but fail to see why it does get such a great review. I found the acting a bit wooden and the story line rather boring. Admittedly I had just seen fringe which is absolutely fabulous so maybe it was too hard to compete with such a super series. It is very much in a class of its own and if you want to see this series I would suggest to buy 1 disc to see if you like it rather than wasting your money on the whole series like I did and not liking it.
