3.0 out of 5 stars Battery price is silly, 30 April 2012
The lawnmower its-self is fine unless the grass is either wet or long (long being 5cm or more) in which case the batteries get exhausted too soon (25mins). I'd recommend getting two more spares (the machine came with two) but at over 100 each that's not going to happen. What a rediculous price for a battery. No way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lawnmower is VG, 17 Aug 2011
This lawnmower is very good. Delivers exactly what it says. Have only charged the batteries twice so not on full charge yet but you get 2 batteries in the box and between them there is more than enough to clear my 300approx sq meters. Not having to hassle with cables is excellent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice build but not convinced it makes a difference, 22 May 2011
The quality of build is good - no problems there. Issue is this - it's made no difference to the signal I get so I can only assume either the signal is so bad that it cannot be improved, or the BT mobile broadband dongle is getting all the signal that is out there or the thing doesn't work. Problem is that I have no way to know which answer is correct.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very clever but with a couple of irritations., 3 Aug 2010
The whole idea is brilliant and it definately does what it says on the box but there are a couple of irritations as follows: You can switch the pen from writing mode to mouse mode and this is great but when the pen has not been used for a minute or so, it goes to sleep, I assume to save battery power. When it does this the cursor vanishes so when you tap the pen's nib to reactivate it you have no idea where on the screen the cursor is and this tap not only reactivates the pen, it also actions the tap. Therefore it's random which toolbar button you've just pressed or which email you've just opened because you have no way of knowing which button or email the invisible cursor is hovering over. The other irritation is that there is no way to replicate the action of a trackwheel when scrolling in the likes of Excel and Word or when using the trackball to change zoom in Excel, Word or Visio.

Capturing text as you write is great - my hand writing is not good so it has trouble converting it but in terms of capturing the handwriting as an image it's brilliant.

So in summary, it does what it says but I don't use it much because of the trackwheel absense and the really annoying invisible cursor, which is a shame because using a pen as a mouse is much, much nicer that using a mouse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it - it is definately worth it., 18 May 2010
This is an excellent book. There is always a risk that it might not be what you expect but it was definately worth it. It you want to get in touch with your sub-concious then this helps you do that and while it's not an overnight 'miracle' I don't think I'd have had such good results if I'd gone it alone. You can feel you are making progress after only a couple of chapters. My only 'improvement' is this: The book (as all these books) suggest you go into a trance to enable you to demote your concious mind and bring forward your sub-concious mind so you can recite an affirmation to solve a problem, improve something etc but my point is it's my concious mind that is doing the reading but it's my concious mind that I'm meant to suspend - they are conflicting things to me so... Harry Carpenter has a CD with all the affirmations on them. If get that then you can listen to the affirmations with your concious mind happily switched off. It costs approx another 10 US dollars but it's worth it too. So while you're waiting for the book to arrive consider getting the CD - it fast tracks your progress.

In summary - excellent. Get it, read it and practice - it's brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book, 19 Mar 2009
This is a great read. The stories are a bit different and short enough to read in one sitting easily. Well recommended.
