5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal, 14 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are traditional, no nonsense Pontefract Cakes - made with treacle, and no pork gelatine (such as Haribo).
Insanely tasty, don't hesitate.

1.0 out of 5 stars UPnP Media Server issues, 6 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
UPnP Media Server fails to automatically update the media library; even when files are added through the application. Investigation shows this as a 'known bug' which at present isn't fixed. So effectively it operates as NAS, but only partially as a Media Server.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tablet, 2 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A superb tablet - there's enough power under the hood to ensure that the UI and applications skip along at a fine pace. The screen is vibrant and clear. Battery life excellent. I haven't encountered problems with any apps or web-pages with embedded video. I can't fault it at all - I'm very impressed - for sub-170 this is a steal.
Props to GTR - whose service is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deliciously different, 14 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
8 boxes of tea, each with 15 individually wrapped teabags. This is a really delicious blend; the initial flavour is of cinnamon with a slight hint of ginger and cloves, then the liquoirice comes through. Great in Winter or Summer, and already sweet. I was fed up with this tea being constantly sold out at my local supermarket so found this online. 2/3rds of the cost, and delivered !

5.0 out of 5 stars Initial Thoughts, 7 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No reviews so far, so I may well post my initial thoughts. Firstly, this set contains the 4 DVD History Channel's set of 'Rome The Rise and Fall of an Empire'. In addition there are two extra DVDs - 'Rome: Engineering an Empire' and 'Ancient Mysteries - Ancient Rome and its Mysterious Cities'. The 4 DVD set alone can be bought for nearly double the price, so already we are into bargain territory. I'm only part way through the 4xDVD set, but in comparison to the Discovery Channel's equivalent there is far less repitition (annoying 'recap' after what would be an ad-break), and the production values are far higher. Also, the DVDs each have two or three episodes each, so although there are less discs the run-time is far greater - I can never understand why many documentary sets contain 6 or 8 discs, each with just 40 mins of material ! In total there are 14hrs of (what so far looks like) quality documentary. If you don't already own it, buy 'Ancient Rome: The rise and fall of Empire' - this BBC produced series is my personal favourite, but if you already own it, then this DVD set is a great companion piece, and represents stunning value.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good, but reservations, 9 Mar. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There have been a few reviews of this product which seem inaccurate based on my experience. Firstly, you CAN rewind and fast forward films; it's just a bit fiddly to do. Secondly, I haven't yet found a file it won't play. The main draw for this product is that you can plug in an external HDD to the USB slot and play the files stored on the HDD. I've had mixed luck with this. Firstly, the device only supports FAT16/FAT32 drives, so if yours is NTFS you can forget it. You'd need to reformat, and that's not easy as modern versions of Windows don't allow you to do this without third party software. Even with a FAT32 drive, the device fails to read some drives; I'm guessing the device has an internal limit on the number of files it can read. I don't doubt that it would work with a 1Tb disc, but would it work if the drive was full ? The device also fails to read a FAT32 passport drive. Another drawback is the remote, which is tiny. A normal sized remote with buttons for fast forward/rewind etc. would have been much better. The ability to insert a memory stick and play files directly from it is great, but then again many 25 DVD players now have this facility. Also when choosing files you only get the first few characters of the filename, so finding the correct file in a batch of similarly named items is a case of trial and error.
It's a shame really as with decent HDD support this product would have filled a gap in the market. As it is, a normal HDD media player (many of which can be bought for a similar price) is probably a better option. Alternatively, if you just want to play files from a memory stick and don't need VGA output then just plump for a DVD player with USB and DivX support.
