3.0 out of 5 stars 'Part 1' of Series 5 - not the last installment, 9 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"The Fifth Season - Contains *All* 8 Episodes on 3 discs" reads the packaging. As per other reviewers, I certainly pre-ordered this thinking it *was* the complete and final installment of Breaking Bad. I think Amazon could easily make it clear that more is to follow - e.g. 'Series 5 part 1' or 'the penultimate installment' etc. I think it's sailing close to Trading Standards legality, but more importantly, the spirit of this is being flouted, which is very disappointing.

The 'Ultraviolet' service (which allows you to stream the eight episodes to PC/iPad etc), is a really interesting idea. You can for example watch a few episodes on your tv via dvd, then when you can't rest until you've found out what happens after the cliffhanger watch another in bed on your iPad. As with some Sony systems, it's a bit clunky to register and a bit confusing in terms of where/how to access things, but that said, once you have a model of what to do, it's quick and fairly easy to use.

But Amazon, please be clearer about what we're buying - I would have waited for the full 16 episode set, which will probably cost a lot less than buying the two 8 x packs, so I'm left feeling rather ripped off.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for bicycles - poorly made, 2 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These appear to be made for car/bike tyres (Schrader valve), but are very poor quality - I'd be surprised if they survived the elements or anything other than the shortest journey. They are also unsuitable for push bicycle tyres - they're too big and unbalance a wheel, causing 'judder'. Great idea, but poor implementation. Shame.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware of expired download, 27 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered on the 30th Nov as a Christmas present, but have found the digital download (part of the triple play offer) expired on the 5th December! I hadn't even received the package by this point...
