5.0 out of 5 stars Does What It Says On The Box, 2 Mar. 2016

Plugged it in - followed the instructions - it started & paired almost immediately with my bluetooth headphones. Works just fine with no drop in signal. Can't ask for more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating & Moving, 24 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautifully written, this is a fascinating story set in post-war Malaya at the time of the Emergency and explores the inner-emotions and conflicts of different characters through to the time of that country's independence. The historical accounts are a critical part of the book and accurately reflect the violent struggle that took place during the communist insurgency and how at the same time people tried to come to terms with the hardships and suffering endured during the Japanese occupation. The book is sensitively written without any obvious bias which makes it all the more thought-provoking.

5.0 out of 5 stars At Last - One That Is Really Good, 4 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tried several of the new Garmins but this one best fits the bill for me. It has most of the advanced SatNav features of the new range of Garmins at a reasonable price. However, note it doesn't have Traffic info (which can be added as an extra but which has its pit-falls anyway - see other reviews) and this means the power cable for in-car use is slimmer, neater and much less intrusive.
This model works well and does not suffer from the somewhat quirky on/off switch of some of the other new models. It has the larger 5 inch screen and the one supplied to me by Amazon is free of the scratch marks and strange patterns that I noticed under the screen of some other new Garmins. Also, again unlike some others, it came free of any software issues which meant it connected to my PC first time and downloading updates has been straightforward.
So, if you want a good all-round SatNav free of the frills of traffic info and live data (which you can get live from any smartphone without the same subscription fee), then this is definitely one you should seriously consider.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book, 26 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gift of Rain (Paperback)
It is near impossible to add to the praise that other reviewers have given this book, just read it and see! Well researched: I know Penang well having lived there for a number of years and reading this book was a joy as it also brought back many memories. More than that, the book captures and touchingly describes the senses that exist in a multi-cultural society, and the feelings of a half chinese half european boy growing up on that very beautiful island. I very much look forward to the author's next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really neat......, 8 Nov. 2008

Pure PocketDAB 1500 Personal Rechargeable DAB/FM Digital Radio
The Pure 1500 is an excellent little DAB personal radio. The controls are simple and easy to use, even in low-light conditions and at night. Most of all, the sound quality through the Sennheiser ear-phones, which are supplied with it, is top notch. Another key feature is the ability to re-charge the battery while still listening to the radio. When fully charged, battery-life is several hours which is handy when out-and-about.
The i-nique executive soft napa leather cover for this radio (available separately) is a really nice, good quality case for the Pure Pocket DAB Radio 1500, which allows full access to all controls and the re-charging port. The leather is of a decent standard and has a nice feel to it. The case fully protects the DAB radio from all the usual day-to-day scuffs and scratches that would otherwise happen. After a few weeks of regular use, the screen and cover of my radio are still in as-new condition. I am very pleased with both the radio and case, and am happy to recommend them as a good buy through Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable for the Money, 26 Oct. 2008

Garmin Nuvi 250 Widescreen Satellite Navigation System with European Mapping
This is a fantastic Sat Nav that does all the basic things you need in order to get you from "A" to "B" in the UK or in Europe. I have used it extensively in England, France and also for a week in Spain. It has always been reliable and I have found it works very well. For example, I took it to Spain recently where on arrival in Malaga I was taken by taxi to pick up a car hire from an industrial park a couple miles from the airport. I felt completely lost in what seemed the back-streets and there wasn't a signpost anywhere in sight. However, once in the driving seat of the car hire, I switched on the system and it took no more than a minute to identify my location. It guided me faultlessly to a motorway access junction within a couple of minutes and, from there, on a 4 hour journey across southern Spain, including round and through the cities of Malaga, Seville and Huelva. Without it I know I would have been completely lost and stressed-out. For the money, I don't think its beatable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Camera - Just Don't Expect Too Much, 8 Dec. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I previously owned and used a Canon G5, which is a great camera. The PowerShot S5IS has some more up-to-date features, such as face recognition and a bigger viewing screen plus more pixels. The biggest plus for me is the larger screen, which makes composing a shot much easier. However, while its construction is perfectly OK, it does not 'feel' as well-built as my old G5 and nor does it seem as robust. Picture quality is also good but it does struggle a more in poorer light conditions where "noise" is more apparent. I have found battery life quite acceptable provided you buy and use the higher capacity rechargeable batteries. I also miss not having a printed manual or handbook, though the one provided by Canon with the camera on a CD is clear and well-written. All-in-all, for the general user, a good camera for the money with all of today's popular-camera features.
