Amazing piece of kit. Works like a dream with HDMI cables on my Bush TV. Been watching youtube videos and it's fantastic. Very cheap price compared to actual Samsung model, but works just the same

Superb bird book with simply stunning photographs and write ups on these amazing warblers. If you are planning a trip to the states or even for your reference shelf at home, this is a must have book for the ornithological connoisseur.

No backlight as advertised?? Also volume even with amplify is so faint even with the best hearing it is faint. This says, it's for help with people with hard hearing!! As my mother is 81, I thought this would be ideal, I was wrong.

2.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, 9 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am very much interested in Time Travel and Quantum Equations etc etc, so thought I would give this book a spin. Now let me tell you, it is no HG Wells classic and to be honest I wrote something similar when I was 14 years old. All in all it is hard to grasp where the camper van time machine came from, when it was built and no detail of this is written in the book. The story is basically a young mans trip back to 1963 to try and stop his father getting his arm blown off in a shooting accident. Given that nobody yet really understands the concepts of time loops or causation or existence, one can forgive the author for having a less than scientific approach to the story. I would say it is a good story for a father to tell to his children or young adults. I did contact the publishers who are called authorhouse, as the book has several grammatical and appalling spelling errors!! So not much proof reading has been done on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Barometer, 6 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Barometer is perfect and does what you would expect a Barometer to do. Needed no adjustment upon checking local conditions (Cheshire) and daily recordings so far have been accurate for hpa (hector pascals), temperature and hygrometer. Just before we had hail and snow yesterday, the pressure needle fell rapidly from 1003 hpa to 990hpa and the hygrometer went up to 90% water content in the air.

All in all, I would recommend this to anybody looking to chek their local patch and keep an eye on local conditions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply outstanding, 29 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Collins Bird Guide (Paperback)
Treated myself for Christmas. Wow !! This has to be the best field guide I have ever owned, well apart from your first which in my case was The Observer Book of Birds (I had when I was 8 years old). This is the second edition and the pictures and descriptions are simply breathtaking. It has full details of the new sub-species (taxonomy) and also a section at the back on North American Passerines, Vagrants & Introduced & Escaped species.

If you want a brilliant field guide that covers 713 species in the main section that covers all birds which breed or occur in Europe & North Africa north of 30 degrees North and Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan, this is for you. Also included are the Canary Islands, Madeira and the Sinai Peninsula.

A chunky but can fit in your bag paperback guide, that is a must for travelling, even more so now so many sub-species have been identified. The text is easy to decipher and you will just treasure this book if your a decent birder or a seasoned pro. Maybe not the best for beginners, so be warned.
