5.0 out of 5 stars Great story of how a group of people all bring separate skills to an adventure, 8 Feb. 2014
This review is from: 14 (Kindle Edition)
OK, I listened to this in the car, but it was the unabridged version, so I think I can comment here. This started off as a slow burner, and then gradually and systematically cranked up the tension. As an ensemble piece it works really well, and it references to contemporary film and TV made the characters seem more real. I won't give anything away about the plot, but tying in some of the madder 20th century science made it very believable. I'm off to find another story by the same author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product if you want to move from ordinary pedals to clipless, 20 Sept. 2013

Easy to fit and easy to use, these pedals have made a difference to the way I pedal. I'd recommend them to anyone wanting to try out clipless.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i really liked this bag when it turned up. Really useful for holding bits and pieces, and for my Samsung Galaxy S3. However it took ages to turn up. I ordered 10 days early for a cycle trip we were going on, but it didn't turn up till 2 weeks after we go back. I guess it had to come all the way from China. So happy to recommend it, but leave plenty of time for it to turn up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Did what it said on the box, 17 Oct. 2012
Ordered the card, which turned up nice and promptly. Loaded it in my Samsung Galaxy SIII with no problems. No problem, but didn't expect any with a SanDisk card.

1.0 out of 5 stars Only works with iPhone, 19 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to work with my Galaxy S3 as it can drive the Polar sensor on my treadmill, and has Bluetooth. Unfortunately its uses Blutooth SMART which is only compatible with iPhones. This isn't really made clear in the descriptions, and I'd never heard of the SMART variation of Bluetooth until I tried to get this working. SO if you don't have an iPhone, don't buy this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Flawed product, 11 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I already had one of these, so bought a second one. Unfortunately after a few months the display stopped working. The only response from the helpdesk was to say that maybe the power supply was broken. Or of course I could send it in to be serviced.

Another problem I have found is that it can't access the music I have stored on my homeserver, when I use WiFi. It works over the wired ethernet ok though. The other problem it has is it takes a long time to reconnect to the musicserver. Works fine first time, but then takes 5 minutes or more to connect to the music server, after the radio has been switched off. I did report this to Roberts, but was told the support guy had problems at home, and wouldn't be able to look into it quickly.

Th product is OK but the support is really amatuerish. For a complex product like this it would be nice to have better support!

Got this to replace a pair we bought about 10 years ago. The difference in performance was amazing. Great quality.

1.0 out of 5 stars Simply didn't work, 11 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Plugged it in and it didn't work. Won't connect any of my devices. I paid extra for same day delivery, which was a waste of the money.
