3.0 out of 5 stars Looks good but with reservations., 5 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks good and feels premium. However;

1. Magnet for the flap to close the case shut is no where near strong enough, constantly falling open when carrying or moving about. Annoying and makes no difference with or without the MS keyboard added.

2. The plastic holder that is glued on to the inner cover (that grasps the tablet) looks cheap and feels quite brittle. Odds are it will crack and split over time.

Other than that, not the worst by far and not bad value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic extension of the famous Wheeler Dealer series, 23 Dec. 2014
Fantastic extension of the famous Wheeler Dealer series, this programme sees Mike the cheerful chappy car salesman of the wonder duo flying (and driving!) around the world buying and selling cars. On each occasion he "trades-up" trying to achieve a nice sports car at the end of his final journey. Not an easy thing to do in a foreign country, but no doubt a little assistance from his film crew and entourage helps.

Great to watch, Mike is such a nice bloke you can't help but like his presentation, even if you just know the deals always follow the same patter. But why not in deed?

A good export of a British made series and one that I thoroughly enjoy watching. Far more than the comedy trio who masquerade as a car programme on BBC-2....

If you like Wheeler Dealers, your love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazon value for money TV & Film Show interface - Fantastic!, 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amazon Fire TV (Electronics)
I should have ordered one when they first listed it and saved myself £25! If you are totally non techie and just want a very very easy to use box that can stream (watch) TV shows, films, "Prime TV shows etc, then buy one of these. The voice search really does work. In fact it works so well it makes me wonder why other types of product for viewing TV haven't the same facility, it really is that good.

To make real use of it to do need to be an Amazon Prime member but considering Amazon would probably go bust if I stopped buying through them (well maybe be not, but you get the idea), that wasn't a problem for me.

I have also loaded PLEX as an app which allows me to access my media server running Plex. It works well and saves having to start a PC to do the same job.

Downsides: Output is limited to 1080 or 720p HD only. What happens if you have an older TV with 1080i ? No video - that's what! The auto output won't work either so if you do buy one with no video you now know why. No proper YOU TUBE app. That is stupid. The rubbish version that is available is so bad. Don't bother. No Skype, would be nice with a built in mic in the remote (maybe V2),

Other than that a great product and very much worth the money. Get a proper You Tube app ready for it and you are almost there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still using floss tape or those horrible little brushes? Buy one of these and have the cleanest teeth ever., 23 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Always had problems with flossing. Can't be bothered to keep it up and the new weird little brushes that the dentists are pushing hard are a real pain to use.

Saw this advertised in the Times the other day and thought I'd try one. Wow does it work. Sure my gums bled for the first two or three days but the only time my teeth feel this super clean (without small bits of food that sometimes gets stuck unable to shift via a toothbrush), is when my dentist screeches over them with his ultrasonic tool.

You just fill the Sonicare up with mouthwash (better than water) and follow the outline of each tooth holding the button down. It blasts a very fine mist of liquid through the gaps in-between your teeth and around your gum line.

Easy to use and really works. It's parked next to my electric tooth brush and adds another 30 seconds or so to my routine each day. The results are very well worth it. My dentist commented "I see you have been flossing well"... No I hadn't!

Easy to install. good price and works a treat with the Huawei E398u-1 LTE 4G USB Dongle, giving me seamless switch over when my lousy BT Connect fails.

Just a must have if you want to use a touch screen with Windows 8.1. I'm sure the PC will fall apart long before this bit of OTT mechanical construction defects. Looks good too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite heavy to hold but, 3 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its very well built and is well balanced. Plus if the famous London hotel "Claridge's" thinks it is good enough to install in their £1000 per night (minimum) rooms, then it's probably good enough for you and me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with the best of them., 3 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philomena [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
If you think Alan Partridge, sorry Steve Coogan is a bit of a twonk and don't like his acting then imagine you have never seen him before, buy the film because you know Judi Dench is the best actress in the UK and you will smile from ear to ear witnessing great chemistry between the two. The true story is one that had to be told and if it doesn't bring a tear to you eye you are probably not human. A classic. Also see "About Time".

Bit of a softy? Want a nice funny, touching brilliantly acted Brit film that is sure to become a classic? Buy it and enjoy. Best I've seen in ages.
