Philips HMP3000/05 HD Media Player
Philips HMP3000/05 HD Media Player

5.0 out of 5 stars Phillips media streamer, 25 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dinky little box. fits in palm of hand. Sleek and well styled.
Comes with RCA cable to fit any telly, will need HDMI if running HD.
Remote is small but not too small, well designed and you don't have to have the accuracy of a sharp shooter to work it (unlike some media players). Also comes with 2 AAA batteries, bonus.
Remote also has independent volume control and subtitle toggle/options, which are both very handy.
As long as you organise your media well on your flash key / SD card / external Hard Drive, the menus are easy to navigate. Interface is plain but simple.
Played all sorts of movie files (xvid, ISO, MKV etc.) and all worked great, no issues.

All in all; great, tidy little box that runs 1080p files like a champ. No internet channels or browser but if like me you are just looking for a simple media player, look no further.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Cup of Tea (Milk Please), 23 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cigarette Crimes (MP3 Download)
Great album! Versatile Album! A "gets better each listen" Album!

For me the stand out tracks here are "On My Way", "Kiss and Kill" and "Cool Monster".

This album is raw, it has adrenaline, it has quirks and variety.

You can hear the variety of influence in this album and it all works so well. If your a fan of raw lead guitar, funky bass picks or unique punky vocals this is for you.

Love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars does the job, 20 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have 2 guinea pigs and this provides enough space for them to still sprint around. As soon as they go in this cage they start darting around and jumping all over the place.

With it assembled anything larger than a hampster should no way be able to escape through gaps. The hieght of the cage is good to and the pigs havent even given the up and over a thought as it would be a wasted effort.

Contructing it takes about 2 mins and if you detatch just one set of panels you can fold it up so you dont have to keep taking it apart.

It is also sterdy and heavy enough that guinea pigs or rabbits or anything else that sort of size wont be able to budge it.

Good purchase for the price!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good in a lot of ways but, hhmmm., 20 May 2010

This at first seems a neat little kit, very compact and versitile.

There is a earlier review that states the turbo button needs to be held most of the time. I totally agree! I have thick hair and without the turbo on the removal of hair became quite unpleasent. At first i thought, "cool, this botton helps!". but now its annoying having to press it constantly and why cant it just bbe that fast all the time. I would happily charge the shaver more for the sake of not using that button, hense why i have now gone for something more serious.

Yes the charging dock and attatchments are handy and it does hold its charge very well but if like me and just want the job done as quickly and simply as possible you will be looking for something else within 6 months.

handy for travel and on the go commuters with little time but if its for home do yourself a favour and get something with a bit mor kick

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure funny!, 24 April 2010
Probably my favourite comedy of the last few years. When my wife and i sat down to watch this we were having a rare relaxing eveing as new parents. As we watched the film we found that scene after scene was filled with these awkward, desparate moments that we had just gonne through as a couple / young family, but they were now absolutley hilairious.

Honest, insighful, (almost) wet yourself funny and all with a very warm heart at the center of it all.

Highly recommended!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars had t20's and t10s for ages now and mint, please read, 20 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok,
Creative T20 series 2. £50ish, no buzz from plug (not even a whisper). Cracking sound, improved weight to bass from T10s, clear and responsive.

Please dont let people talking about the plug buzz (?!?) put you off. this is obviously a rare issue that some unfortunate souls are experiencing. remeber people are more likely to review if somehting is wrong!!

I have both T10's and T20's (both with same plug adapter) and never any problems. I do agree that the adapter is oversized and will overlap a socket on an extention lead but on twin sockets it fits like a glove and no space is lost.

This is not just a review after a couple of days before anything has a chance to go wrong. I have had my T10's for over a year and my T20's for about 6months and they have been nothing but exceptional. T10's plugged in to laptop for use with itunes and t20's in LCD TV. laptop doubles as hifi and if volume at 2/3rds fills home. TV sound improved 10 fold.

T20's still give the same impecable clarity as t10's but apart from obviously being louder give a richer, deeper bass that were missing from the t10's. Yes there is no bass unit to make outstanding low tones but they have a damn good crack. T10's have single "tone" adjust ment which seems to adjust treble and base at same time which isnt ideal but t20's have seperate bass and treble adjustments which helps you meet a sound better to your taste.

Both have a solid build with clean lines and good finish but the t20's just look more purposfull and "meaty". One thing to note is that T10s have a metal mesh over mid range cone which will stop little hands from ruining them if you have kids. T20's have solid cones but only optional fabric mesh which i have opted to remove because it just doesnt look as good.

conclusion very happy for over a year now with creative speakers will buy every time because they look good, perform beautifully and are very minimalist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect example of why you shouldnt review pre release!?!?!?!?!, 24 Oct. 2009
Please do not listen to the one star reviews on this page as they are nonsense. For anyone who ever feels the need to prematurely slate something in an amazon review, please get your facts right first. Thank you to the person who despite all the bad reviews went ahead with this and gave us the truth as it is a gem with audio and visual remastered wonderfully.
