Breville 1.7L Ikon Kettle SK500XL
Breville 1.7L Ikon Kettle SK500XL
Price: CDN$ 93.65

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleek looking, nice kettle, only a couple of minor draw backs, Feb. 5 2016
The kettle is great and straight forward ( I didn't want a kettle with 5 settings for a 20 degree temperature difference at a large extra cost). It is replacing a Cuisinart that gave up the ghost after 8 years.

Pros
Looks good with the matt stainless steel
Nice water pour
Easy to read water on the side
Easy on switch with side lights up when it is on
It pings when the water has boiled
Metal filter - that will be easy to clean
Sturdy base

Cons
You see condensation on the inside of a the clear lid, which doesn't look great - its not necessary and would be better if it was a solid colour
You have to use the Breville name on the inside to know it's the max fill fill.

Great album, the score part work really well in offline listening as well as in the film. An uptempo score.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Star Wars - bold orchestral score, Dec 28 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Evolutionary, rather than revolutionary. Familiar tunes re engineered. What was nice was not seeing the track listing names on the back cover to spoil the film.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blandness behind the mediocrity, Dec 28 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bland, all the songs are samey - even the ones with guest vocalists. Very pop and way too much crap unnecessary 'derogatory' lyrics. Had heard a lot of good things about the album, but it was a big disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film, just you might want to get the 'second printing', Aug. 26 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you received the 'first pressing' please note this information from Critierion - the corrected image and 'Second Printing' will be released 9th Sept.

Update, 8/6/15: Good news, everyone. The Dressed to Kill street date is moving to September 8. Thanks to the concerns of our customers and the efforts of reviewers at websites like DVDBeaver.com, who helped point out the problems with the release early, we were able to make the fix before the bulk of orders had shipped. We will, of course, replace any faulty copies that may find their way into circulation, but we are working to ensure that all customers, including those who have placed preorders, and all major retailers will have corrected product in time for the new street date. To be certain that you have the correct version, look for the words 'Second printing' on the back of the package and on the disc.

Original post, 8/4/15: In our haste to respond to customer concerns about the anamorphic compression on our release of Dressed to Kill, we posted incorrectly that the change had been made at the behest of the director. Brian De Palma did ask for a change to the geometry of the scan, but it was to address the distortion he saw in the image, not to apply it. Unfortunately, that change was never carried over in the final product, and the resulting discs are wrong. Therefore, we are reauthoring discs without the squeeze and will make them available to all purchasers of our release of Dressed to Kill free of charge. Simply e-mail Jon Mulvaney (mulvaney@criterion.com) with your name, address, and some proof of purchase, such as a receipt, and we will send you a corrected copy. We regret the inconvenience, but we hope that in the end all of our customers will end up with a copy of Dressed to Kill that accurately reflects the film as well as the director's intentions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for car or PC where you don't want to knock the USB, June 4 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great for the car, good speed for a USB3. Gets warmer than the USB2 when loading the USB, but in use for MP3 in the car it has only got slightly warm.

The access light on this is brighter than the USB2 versions so depending on the USB location, that could get annoying - it's fine where mine is, but the cover for the USB port can not close as the end is a little larger than the USB2 - easier for grabbing though. In a PC this would be the better choice, in the car maybe the USB2 has the edge - it just takes a bit longer to copy music on to it.
