3.0 out of 5 stars Beware: refurbished box sets!, Aug. 15 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is not a new product: under the original shrinkwrap (or so it seemed), there were some dvds with finger traces or slight damage. Nothing to make it unreadable, but still not a good sign of quality control. Very deceiving of Amazon to let something like that slip!

Nothing to say right now about the content itself, because it's going to take a long time to watch...

I was looking for this single cd for 2 decades, so I was pretty happy to finally find it here!
You just don't hear that kind of music anymore...

3.0 out of 5 stars Flawed dvd because of the product concept, but movie quality is ok., Aug. 15 2014
This review is from: Code Name: Emerald [Import] (DVD)
A WWII movie from the '80s that isn't so bad. Not that much action or special effects, mostly a story (a good thing I'd say!).
You can learn about the movie plot elsewhere, so I'll talk about the dvd edition alone. It's a "a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players". Since it's an official burned dvd (the color tells all), the life span of this product is unknown. It comes from the Warner Brothers Archive Collection licensed under the Turner Entertainement company. It's unfortunately the only way to see this movie on DVD, because there is no other edition. No extra on the dvd, and no scene selection: you can only jump from 10 minutes increments!

Great soft mood album. You can easily chill or make out while listening to it in the background...

This review is from: V2 1986-1995: Singles (Audio CD)
This box set is artificially high priced because it was not re-issued in a smaller package like the 1981-1985 singles. And it's not cds but "Copy Control" discs, so Amazon is again in the wrong concerning the product details.

Other than that, it's nice to finally have some rare versions not available elsewhere (I'm mostly referring to the "Burning the Ground" single), with a copy of their 45 RPM sleeves.

Best orchestral soundtrack of the year! A little bit deceived by the fact that some tracks are mixed together, but nevertheless are great score to a great movie!

3.0 out of 5 stars Copy Control disc instead of a real standard CD..., July 4 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Unlike the description states, it's not a real cd, but a "Copy Control disc". Therefore, the label "compact disc" is not accurate, and misleading!
Other than that, it' good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great, June 5 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was stunned by the musical ambiance of this weird movie when I first watched it, so I really wanted the soundtrack. But it's only 20 minutes long, and there is no info as to the writer's credits... So I only discovered elswhere that it was Rachmaninov's music! Why it's not written anywhere on the soundtrack cd's packagning is beyond me... The film's ending credits are a lot more precised, but the soundtrack's package is only a cheap digipak.

A very nice piece by Sebastien Tellier is also included: I guess it's worth to discover too

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price, but not much more, June 5 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Many people already wrote this, but I wanted to add my 2 cents.

The fish eye effect shows some blur in the outer edges of the image, and it's worse/unusable if you put it on a 55-250mm lens. Since the lower setting of the 18-55mm is still pretty wide, it's not usable, unless you really want that round effect! But you most likely won't like the qulity of the image...

The macro part of the lens is the best thing of this product. There was an adaptor ring enclosed with the package, but no instructions on how to use it, or how to separate the 2 lens: but thanks to previous reviews, I went through it in seconds. It's a really good and cheap option for a macro lens, in case you need it! That makes it a good buy after all, but I really would have been disappointed by this product if there wasn't the macro lens option...
