5 Reviews by G

In my view the service unacceptably misleading. Prior to logging in I
search on the webpage shown to all (members and non members) for a
number of books and find them shown as being available. I then log into
my new account and find the books are not available. Equally, I have
found that some books shown as being available on not immediately
available. When I send an inquiry I receive a response that the book(s)
will be available the following month. I have written to service a
number of times to obtain clarification but the responses are ambiguous
and never really respond to the question raised. Why advertise books that aren't offered when advertised?

Hi GC -I'm sorry for your frustration with our unlimited service. If you have any further questions or need help with anything, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at Thank you!
I am a huge consumer of audiobooks. If I am in the car, a book is playing. I have yet to find any commercial site with an inventory as large as Audible or the quality of Audible's software. And zero complaints as to the quality of the recordings. I do wish the cost was a tad lower but accept the cost as I have yet to find another site which is competitive in terms of inventory, availability, quality, honesty, service. I really don't relate to the negative reviews I have read. Well done Audible.
My wife and I watch Acorn presentations via our Roku device. I seem to recall paying something like $50 for an annual subscription which is excellent value when we factor in the number of shows we have watched and enjoyed. In fact, a few of our very favorite shows are only available on Acorn. We did have a concurrent subscription to Britbox but didn't find any added value so we decided to drop Britbox. I see folks have complained about the application but as we use Roku we can't comment. Certainly we have never experienced freezing, downtime, etc. We would rate content as an 8 on a 10 point scale. Just don't have any notable complaints. Just want more as we are consuming content faster than it is available!
Easy to use software. Offerings are a function of the member library but are reasonable but not generous. Nevertheless, compared to the competetion it is a favorite
I am still awaiting delivery of the product so please view this review as of the service vs product quality. I have found this site's service level to be less than what I had expected. I say this in the context of their frequency of communication, speed of response to an inquiry, adequacy of information in responses received and speed of order processing and shipment. At the time I placed my order I placed orders with three other gardening sites. All three of the other sites provided more information and quicker responses than Direct Gardening. In addition, I have received the plants I ordered from the other sites days ago. I am still awaiting information from Direct Gardening on their shipping dates and carrier. I wait to see the condition of the plants whenever I do receive them. At the moment the above remains my opinion
