3.0 out of 5 stars Average bit of kit, 9 May 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this on the basis of Amazon ratings, I don't normally do that as I am usually sceptical about star ratings but everyone seemed of the same mind so I took the plunge!

I wanted to avoid merely 'adequate' but tinny sound (Like the old CD player type speakers) and I did not want something that will break in a suitcase or if it falls more than 5 inches but I didn't imagine I could get that at this price.

Well there is a reason everyone is of the same mind as what we have here is quite simply an excellent set of travel speakers. They sound superb; they close down small & look good (OK they smudge a bit with finger prints but all black ipod owners know and live with this). General opinion at a recent bit of a doo at my place was that they must cost 60 or 70 quid (one guest suggested over a 100!) and nobody believed the actual cost till I e-mailed the link so 'good value for money' doesn't do Logic3 justice.

Not only do I have a low space mobile stereo system with thousands of tracks when on holiday which is what I was after but the sound is good enough for the garden so all those BBQ's and summer parties are covered too and I can bin my beat box and get rid of all the CD's for good.

Stop searching and buy this one; rare as it is these days this does exactly what they say it does on the box :)

UPDATE TO THE ABOVE - 6 MONTHS on

Sadly the above is only half the story. When the dock is opened for use it forms an L shaped cross section inevitably held in place inside by a piece of plastic. As there is no remote this means using the pad on the front of the i-pod and effectively pushing against the piece of plastic and mine has of course broken so the dock has fallen flat on it's back. In addition one of the speakers has gone on the blink possibly because when open the speakers have no protection at all.

The dock has been used in a responsible and careful manner and I would say is still reasonable value on a budget but very much an occasional use consumable item rather that the long term reliable option I was looking for.

I think I will be stepping up to the 60-70 quid bracket after all.

I would like to change this to *** (three stars) but that option does not appear to be available; which beggars the question as to how reliable anything can be on the basis of these reviews.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good overview, 31 Aug. 2006
This book provides a good overview of Soviet tank development and some tabled information on organisation and numbers etc. in the appendix.

It would certainly be of use to a lot of general readers needing such a perspective; There are some errors but not enough to ruin it's value in this respect.

My only real criticism would be that the specifications for the Tanks are very cursory. It would be educational for all readers to see the gradual improvements in armour and so on and this information is not shown. It may be that the inteded broad emphasis dictated these fact were kept to a minimum but if so that decision is IMHO flawed.

There are also some errors which suggest the information is based on out of date data which in armoured circles has been superceeded for some time now.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the German book, 30 Aug. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This work is thorough in it's coverage and does exactly what it says on the tin. However it is deficient in several areas.

All armour measurements are listed in the simplified maximum/minimum manner rather than the more detailed front/side/rear & turret/superstructure/hull/mantlet shown in the sister book on German vehicles. Similarly references are made throughout the book to up armoured vehicles or applique armour but measurements are not given.

In matters of production the page layout is nowhere near as user friendly as the German book; in fact it is hard work to read and it is riddled with errors and has clearly not been properly proof read (The famous German 55mm A/T gun for example)

The appendix covering weapons is poorly written and does not compare performance at the same ranges neither is it tabulated so it is of little use for comparison purposes.

The book appears in many areas to be rushed and unplanned.

On the positve side the explanation of production is very thorough and there is an excellent selction of photgraphs.

A good read for someone ignorant of the full range of allied Tanks on the Western front and Med but not of much use to the more informed and certainly not the encylopedic reference book the German work is.
