After reading all of the negative reviews for this product, I was very nearly put off buying it altogether. But, due to my undying love of the series, I couldn't resist taking the plunge.

I've been playing around with it for a couple of hours, and I must say, I'm quite impressed with it.

Upon unpacking it, I realised just how much larger this new version was compared to the previous iterations of the Sonic Screwdriver. Not that this is a bad thing, it has a much better weight and shape to it, far more suited to the human hand. It's far less likely to drop, because you'll never forget it's there. It's not pocket-sized by a longshot, which could pose a slight problem to Doctor Who obsessives that like to take their Screwdrivers around with them. But the extra size adds a certain impressiveness to it.

Now, first gripe. The Sonic Screwdriver toys have NEVER been easy to dismantle and power up. This one is no exception. In fact, it's probably the fiddliest to set up. The manual states that you must "twist the emitter one-tenth anticlockwise, then pull the emitter away from the handle". Due to its nature as a toy, I was very anxious about twisting or turning any components for fear of breaking it. But eventually I managed to get the batteries in fine. This version takes the most batteries out of them all so far, requiring 3 of those little watch batteries rather than 2.

Reassembled, I took some more time to get to grips with the Screwdriver. Now, these toys have never been of high build quality, they've mainly been 'just so'. Due to the enlarged and stretched profile of this iteration, that fact becomes far more apparent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fan from Finland loves this 27 Dec 2010
By Hiswa
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I ordered this just a few days before Christmas for myself, and the package came to me very quickly, even thought I live in Finland. I'm a huge fan of Doctor Who, and I have to say that I love this screwdriver! It was pretty easy to install the batteries, but I had a problem with one of the screws that had to be opened to insert the batteries, it seemed to be little broken and it took me almost 5 minutes to get it off. But otherwise it has worked perfectly.

I am quite worried about the "hidden noises", thought. I've tried them and they work, but I'm not really going to use them much because I'm worried that the sound chip will burn...

But overall, this is really a must-have item for a Doctor Who (and especially series 5) fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect. 3 April 2011
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love it. It's perfect, looks like the on-screen model, works well, the spring action is good. But, I dislike how to activate it when it's claws are out you must press the button on the bottom. And that the cover over the bottom button has broken so does not stay covering the button and instead dangles. But apart from that, an excellent sonic screwdriver.

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Excellent product - Grandson loves it! Several movable parts and actions mean there is quite a lot of interest. The sounds are very realistic and the plastic is quite solid. Not a flimsy item.

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We bought this sonic screwdriver as a replacement for my sons David Tennant one that accidently got broken. My 5 year old loves it, it has parts that move, buttons to press and makes an incredibly irritating noise, oh yeah and it lights up. A must have for Doctor Who fas of all ages!
