4.0 out of 5 stars Simple user very happy despite no GPS or documentation, 11 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, I have to say that I cannot evaluate this from a technical view. I have very simple needs and bought the Fusion to meet those and without being able to compare with other prodcuts.
From simple layperson view I can say I like the Fusion very much. It started without any problems, it looks and feels good, it's more than quick enough for me, linked to Wifi without hassle, I found my mail etc easily, camera works.
And it seems very inexpensive.
So I'm very pleased with it.
However to make a couple of negative points (neither that really bothered me)
a. There is no GPS. Before buying this I didn't even understand quite what this means but basically I can't use it without Wifi or telephone contract (I believe) to use SatNav (route navigation in car). The product description was clear on this it seems - I didn't know to look for it
b. The documentation is awful. I read a review to this extent before buying it but it seems that it's the same as other Android tablets and anybody I asked for help knew immediately what it was all about


Russian Ark [2003] [DVD]
Russian Ark [2003] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Sergei Dreiden
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it but perhaps lacks enough 'story line', 13 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Russian Ark [2003] [DVD] (DVD)
Strange to describe film but a real tour de force charge around the Hermitage covering hundreds of years of Russian histroy.
More than that, a serious dicussion / comment on Russian cultural identity
The filming (all in one take, and perhaps not 'smooth') has been criticised though I thought it added enormous momentum to the film
I found it extremely amusing but I gave it 4 stars as I can imagine it may not have enough of a 'story' for many people.
Great but not a guaranteed treat for everyone perhaps (I confess to being biased as I recently visited Hermitage - though I suspect this film is a great promotion for the same)


Korg GA-1 Guitar Tuner
Korg GA-1 Guitar Tuner
Price: £9.87

3.0 out of 5 stars Completed restrictive tunings, 13 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a well made and easy to use product. I think it is reasonably priced
But I echo a previous writer who says it is (only) ok for standard tuning
I would add though that dropping the bass E to D is standard for classic guitarists (at least) and a very large amount of the repertoire exists here
So this is a serious deficiency that at least potential buyers should be aware of.

Favorite Hymns for Solo Guitar (Fingerstyle Guitar)
Favorite Hymns for Solo Guitar (Fingerstyle Guitar)
by Hal Leonard Corp
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for beginner to intermediate players, 26 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good selection of pieces but really for guitarist just above beginner level perhaps.
Clearly laid out. But good guitarists might be better off looking at Mark Hanson Hymns and Spirituals for Fingerstyle Guitar


Mark Hanson Hymns And Spirituals For Fingerstyle Guitar Tab
Mark Hanson Hymns And Spirituals For Fingerstyle Guitar Tab

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent arrangements of great pieces but not for beginners, 26 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good selection of pieces and excellent arrangements. For intermediate to good guitarists. I was delighted with the book which will keep me occupied for quite a while


Toxic Sludge is Good for You!: Lies, Damn Lies and the Public Relations Industry
Toxic Sludge is Good for You!: Lies, Damn Lies and the Public Relations Industry
by John Stauber
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.87

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak and elusive book, 26 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found the book enormously disappointing and am surprised by the positive reviews. The first couple of chapters were the standard introduction to PR found in no end of textbooks.
The book then really just repeated endless case studies but without any real theoretical conclusions
Although taking a 'radical' view of the PR industry and lobbying (in the US) the book showed its self imposed limits by completely ignoring possibly the largest and most significant lobbyin organisations, AIPAC. Rather ironic given the claims of the book, but standard fare.
The book wasn't particularly readable either. Not sure who would be interested in it - I rushed to close it


Fitbit Charge HR Heart Rate and Activity Wristband - Black, Small
Fitbit Charge HR Heart Rate and Activity Wristband - Black, Small
Offered by Zeto UK
Price: £87.90

1.0 out of 5 stars Great marketing for very weak product - avoid, 21 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In less than a year it is unusable due to strap failing at both possible points. Cannot replace or rebuild strap. Returns policy limited to a month. Software with it was inconsistent and statistics poor and web site was down whenever I tried to access it. Very elegant and no doubt attractive to younger people than me (it was recommended by my daughter who no longer uses hers now!) Display very small and difficult to view when running.
Never managed to synch it.
Will buy new activity watch but definitely will not consider fitbit who I consider far better on marketing than providing solid product.

Sugar Man: The Life, Death and Resurrection of Sixto Rodriguez

2.0 out of 5 stars Book says virtually nothing about Rodriguez, 27 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was taken by the video and bought the book. Virtual complete waste of time.
The book brought out virtually nothing about Rodriguez and the bulk was devoted to the authors, their acquaintances and the story of the Film Awards associated. Nothing was pursued regarding the question of non payment of royalties to Rodriguez from South Africa sales.
The only relevant point in the book was the admission that in the video they had omitted the not insignificant fact that Rodriguez actually was not so unknown and in fact had a following in Australia where he had toured. This admission was accompanied by a mealie mouthed justification for the initial dishonesty - done for aesthetic reasons! His personal life and so called political activity amounted to a few pages in total.
Regarding the film awards, the authors were continuously comparing the (albeit exaggerated tale of Rodriguez) to Man on Wire. That is just too ridiculous to be true and perhaps in itself says what you can expect of the book. Basically the Rodriguez story is interesting and has a charm and a sadness. His music is fine and enjoyable. But the video and the book especially have exaggerated this story beyond belief. Sorry to spoil the illusion

5.0 out of 5 stars A real quality product, 8 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Received them and used them today
Beautifully finished and the volume is staggering - and beautifully clear
Fitted my ears perfectly so I did not have to use the other ear buds
A different class to the ones I previously used (Waterfi) which were quite tacky, cumbersome and acoustically awful
Cannot complain that the leads seem a bit long.
I just hope that the leads don't break as these seem ideal for me
