2.0 out of 5 stars Not really worth the money. Also, badly packaged ..., 1 Aug. 2017

Not really worth the money. Also, badly packaged so that several glass panels were chipped with hazardous glass shards in each box. Had to reassemble and bend metal lugs into correct position to hold glass in. Not well designed and assembled in first place.

Works well. Thanks bro! :-)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but limited by available services, 16 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The device itself is superb. Voice recognition is very good.
My main use is for home automation
I don't know how well it works with Philips Hue etc, as I don't use that kind of product. I use my own electronics to provide a more flexible lighting system. Philips and others are nowhere near providing bulbs that replace old style bulbs that had a big choice of wattage and beam spread.
The problem lies in Echo's reliance on IFTTT. This can be slow, especially at busy times, and therefore doesn't meet the requirements for very effective automation.
It would have 5 stars if it could send HTTP commands of my choice.
At the moment I'm stuck with IFTTT and am considering other voice control options unless it improves.
For music streaming and other stuff, Echo is really good.

3.0 out of 5 stars you might want to get a better one than this, 18 Feb. 2016

If you want a low noise supply to avoid ripple interference on your images, then you might want to get a better one than this.
Low noise is essential for security cams if you want reliable motion detection

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, 14 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a projector and 120 inch screen 75M from source. This unit would not work with my existing CAT5E network so I put in a dedicated CAT6 cable. The operation is now very reliable.
This device uses video data compression to transmit the signal. This is OK with bright images with good contrast, but the reduced colour depth is very noticeable in anything else - e.g. night scenes. I use it to watch my Virgin Tivo box and it is just Ok. I am pleased with this purchase though.
For high quality pictures, I use local disk player or a terrestrial freeview tuner with the aerial cable coming the same distance but with an amplifier half way. This is excellent.
Update:
Using now for several months. No further problems related to what I thought was lack of colour depth. Superb.
Be aware - stereo only.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album, 20 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the earthy instrumentals that characterised the Bamboos early albums. Medicine Man is different from these. It's actually very good, as indicated by most reviews on the web. I recommend listening first. Some very cool tracks. This is a group that isn't standing still.

4.0 out of 5 stars A beast - great when tamed, 3 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ideal for Windows Mobile enthusiasts - powerful, full featured, well built hardware. Perfect for me as I have a whole load of Win Mobi software. I put it on my dashboard - Huge screen + Copilot Sat Nav makes it a huge improvement on BMW Prof SatNav. Memory-map with OS maps is great off-road. Ipod Touch-like media player is also great. System not entirely stable and you need to carry a stylus to reboot it. But I love it :-)
Co0kies home tab hack recommended for power users.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a gem, 9 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good item. Not only simplified switching so that my wife could cope with switching between Virgin and Freesat - but fixed the common problem of 'green screen' HDMI incompatibility between Humax HD Freesat box and TV - an unexpected bonus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great jazz / rock fusion, 8 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: More Mr Nice Guy (Audio CD)
Having been into Frank Zappa, Blood Sweat and Tears, etc. in the sixties, I've been rediscovering exciting music. The jazz / rock fusion from these guys is quite exceptional. The level of virtuosity, great material and joy in their music is exhilarating - that is, if you like this kind of thing! I automatically order any new album they come out with. Highly recommended - especially if, like me, you're bored with much of today's music.
