1.0 out of 5 stars Obsolete design, 23 Feb. 2017
Apple has recently updated its software so that you now have to double press the home button to open an iPad. Previously you did not need to press it as all, you could open the password page by swiping the screen. What's even worse is that they have now also deliberately removed the option to restore to the settings to use the swipe function. Why have Apple done this? It's so your home button wears out and you have to buy another tablet. This is an example of deliberate obsolescence being built into design.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 16 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very disappointing. Several things wrong with these speakers as follows...
- When not plugged into the PC they emit a buzz which is silenced on touching the volume controls.
- When turned off but still plugged into the wall the speakers emit a faint high pitched screech.
- I have a 50w unit which is MUCH louder than this. On full volume these speakers produce a nice sound but nowhere near what you would expect for such a powerful specification.

I had to return these speakers which emitted a squeak whenever a track started.

1.0 out of 5 stars Failed on installation!, 22 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product failed on installation!
It comes with a bracket that you need to insert the main body of the alarm into. This activates the alarm. It can be released easily.
When I initially fitted the alarm to the bracket it worked and the test button sounded as expected.
Once I fitted the bracket to the wall and inserted the alarm, nothing happens. The alarm did not activate and the test button does not work.
I think this product is best avoided. I have requested a refund and will have to buy something else.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad design, 27 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These only lasted a few months. I only only do about 5000 miles a year.
I found the margin of the inset of the drivers mat is in exactly the wrong place and catches on your heel when moving the right foot from accelerator to clutch.

1.0 out of 5 stars SLOW!, 9 Feb. 2016
SLOW!
This is the slowest computer I have ever had. It is not possible to operate more than one application at a time. You can go online or use software like photoshop, but not both and expect a decent level of performance. It you do then even text editing in a simple text editor becomes very slow.
Turning on and opening applications takes a ridiculous amount of time.
WHAT'S WORSE - you can't buy additional RAM.
DO NOT BUY THIS!

5.0 out of 5 stars Arresting. Inspirational., 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: White Nights (Audio CD)
I bought this a couple of years ago after hearing the track 'Eira' being played during a radio three interview with Catriona McKay. I was working in the office at the time and had to stop what I was doing to listen. I can't remember being arrested by a piece of music in such a way before, or since. The CD is worth buying just for that one track but the overall album is inspirational.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product - but some spare batteries to go with it., 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good product.
Worth buying a couple of spare batteries as it doesn't give any warning before the battery power runs out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the extra expense, 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Has stood the test of time. My 2 boys - now 11 and 14 - have continually pummeled this net for the last 3 years, and it is still standing and in good shape.
Definitely worth the slightly higher price tag when compared with cheaper and flimsier goals we have bought previously which only lasted a season.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest films of all time!, 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Princess Bride [DVD] (DVD)
One for all the family.
I am writing this review left handed - I have something to tell you - 'I am not left handed!'
Full of one-liners that act as great principles in life, for example - 'never get involved in a land war in Asia' - yes this is funny in context. 'Life is pain... anyone who says differently is selling something.'
Great scene involving Mel Smith. Other cameos from, Billy Crystal, Peter Falk and Fred Savage.
Watch it now or 'get used to disappointment!'
