5.0 out of 5 stars Travel Style, 7 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nice little wallet, room for ticket and ID card to be clearly shown plus a spare section for a cash point card. Also has a long pouch for notes.

This item is great for work as I don't have to lug around my full size wallet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good sound but a little small, 7 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with most Creative products the sound quality is 1st class. Cable has a nice length though could stand with being a little stronger. Ear cups are quite small so may be uncomfortable for some.

Oh and they don't seem to come with the carry case anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Learning Toy, 31 Dec. 2011
Brought this for my daughter this Christmas and have to say this has been one of best buys for her. The unit itself is nice looking in a suitable girlie pink and is quite rugged and drop resistant, defiantly from the Nintendo school child proof product build.

If you are buying it as a Birthday present, take the time to get it set-up first. Needs to be connected to leapfrog connect before it is usable and the updates and downloads take around 30-40min, not fun when you want to play with your new toy.

Games and Apps for this are excellent with all of them that I have seen so far have some kind of learning experience. Better yet, everything your child learns is stored on the pad then is uploaded to the leapfrog connect application. You can then view your child's learning path and see exactly what skills they are progressing in, what age range their learning is at. Some games allow you to add you own learning lessons into them, spelling and maths, very hand if your child is having trouble spelling certain words, words beginning with 'th' for example. This is a nice touch and I hope leapfrog expand on this.

Camera is pretty below average in quality, no better then what you get on most phones but fine for it's intended use.

Pre loaded on the pad are an Art studio, Story Book Creator and a Pets Game.
The Story book is great, photos and pictures created by the leappad can be used to create a scrapbook about your child's family, hobbies, friends etc. These can be upload and shared online.

Downsides - These REALLY like batteries, do yourself a big favour and buy a battery charger and 8 good AA rechargeable batteries.

Some people have had issues with the leapfrog connect software, some overly draconian anti-virus programs don't like it (it asks for a 2 way connection to the leapfrog server, a crime punishable by death in the eyes of some anti-virus programs) and some people get a little twitchy about 2 way connections to their PC but I wont go into that barrel of paranoia.

All in all this is a brilliant product by one of the leaders in child development toys and games. I am very impressed with the quality of the product, it's games and app's and it's online service, would recommend to any parent.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hugely Disappointing, 10 Sept. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an avid fan of The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind, a few days of playing this just lead to one disappointment after another. Initially, the game world is lovely, hats off to the developpers for this although it doesnt fit into the Elder Scrolls lore on what Cryodil should look like, you get the impression of wandering around the set of Lord of the Rings.

In general the game has been "dumbed" down considerably over the previous games, many of the skills have been removed. The plot holds your hand throughout the game, you never have to think about what is going on.

The games levelling system is a major gripe, at no point in the game will you ever feel powerful, that all your hard work in gaining skills and levels pays off, as you increase in levels so does the game world, NPC's that were a challenge at 1st level will be at 30th level, no matter how good your lockpicking gets, locks will always be a bit better than your current skill. You will never find anything easy because of your hard work for skills, the game is always adjusting the difficulty as you get better. The whole levelling system is pointless because of this.

Bethesda has created a lovely and dynamic gameworld only to be letdown by its content.[...] Very much a flawed masterpiece.
