4.0 out of 5 stars A good alternative to mainstream toothpastes, 6 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a fluoride-free toothpaste and I found this one to be of 3 recommended commercial products.

The flavour is ok, sort of tastes like colgate did back in the '70's. What I don't like about it is the paste quickly breaks down in the mouth and becomes like liquid sloshing around and dribbling out.

Overall though, I think it's a good product, and does what it says on the tin (or the tube)

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value, great features, 6 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
About 3-4 years ago, I bought a similar tablet as an entry level device to replace an old pda. It worked pretty well except for the resistive screen, very limited apps store, no upgrades to Android (Gingerbread), and problems getting on to public wifi networks like BT Wifi. But it worked very well for my daughter of 4 years to watch movies, and then finally the headphone socket broke loose and it was time to uograde.

When looking at the next generation of the NatPC tablet, I came across this item, and for the price with all the latest bells and whistles it was an amazing offer. My daughter loves it. It is responsive with the same capacitative touch screen technology that we all take for granted now, and the screen is visually great to look at; we haven't found any apps that don't work on it (including BBC iPlayer).

Where you see the compromises is in the low storage memory (4GB - easily overcome by the addition of a micro SD card), short battery life (3-4 hours but that's fine for us), quite soft internal speaker (we usually use headphones so limitation doesn't affect us) and still some hassles getting on to public wifi networks (like BT wifi).

If you are looking for a good entry level tablet at an ultra low price, I'd definitely recommend that you at least consider this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another stunning release by Katie Melua, 27 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Katie Melua is one of my most favourite singer/songwriters and I bought this album after going to the first concert in the Secret Symphony promo tour.
The live recording bonus CD is interesting but doesn't really add value to the package in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good price and works on Windows 7, 27 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't had a chance to really put it through its paces, but it works nicely for me. The abundant availability of wi-fi now nearly makes this type of device obsolete, but I still find occasional use for a mobile internet dongle, especially as a business backup.
Didn't manage to install on a Linux box (OpenSuse 12).
I really like the usb flash stick operation and it works great as a flash stick with a 32gb micro SD card inserted.

Bought to replace a rapidly disintegrating filter, I was so pleased to be able to buy this at a reasonable price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Null modem cable, 27 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It did the job, and it was a good price for something that I rarely use anymore. Rather than the long cable, I'd prefer a configurable (re-wireable) adapter or connector box, something that's reusable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not strong or durable enough, 28 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't try using the handles on the sides. They just tear off.

The manufacturer has a disclaimer/warning, "not for use with heavy bedding". That should be extended for just about anything you would store in this bag: toys, bedding, clothes.

I would return this item and shop around for something else which is actually robust and useful, but I've already damaged the item by merely trying to use it.

My recommendation, buy something else.
