4.0 out of 5 stars A little bit fiddly, 30 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived well in time today 30 December 2011. It was a little bit fiddly because you've got to not only put in the licence number on the product but then get another one which is e-mailed to your e-mail address but I've got think this is only in the case of security.

I used the free version for many weeks, because I use Dragon NaturallySpeaking and other virus checkers like Norton effect it badly. AVG has been absolutely fine with the free product so I'm hoping that this will be just the same

2.0 out of 5 stars A poor product, 28 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was disappointed with this product, it is a better engineered than my previous Phillips but has no adjustment for your beard or gives you an indication of time left before needing recharging which my previous one did. For what is more or less the "Top of the Market" product I found it poor.

The self adjustment for your beard and face curve is no better and I`m surpriesed that Phillips consider this a top of the range product. If you have a sensative beard look elswhere this product has declined in quality and increased in price

5.0 out of 5 stars Strangely enough a good product for inside your car, 26 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife leaves her car outside, and when the weather changes from cold to warm and vice versa she gets a lot of condensation on the inside of her windscreen. These have proved to be really useful and efficient in getting rid of the water and not wasting Kleenex tissues. Also a recently bought acquisition of a halogen oven, and again these are good after having cleaned the bowl to just wipe round and dry it out totally. They don't cost the earth, but are extremely efficient in what they do. A tip here is to wash them first because they do have some "factory finish" when they arrive.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real winner, 26 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use Dragon naturally speaking, and as it's got more and more complicated it has required a better sound card. Also I do a lot of music, and again this has fulfilled all my requirements and way beyond. It's not a VERY expensive product but it's not cheap. If you're looking for something which is near the top end and extremely good value for money then I would recommend this to you

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as described, 15 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because I needed an installation disc of XP, when it arrived it turned out to be only a backup disk for refurbished computers, you didn't know this until you open the cellophane and it was described more clearly. I returned this to Amazon for a refund which happened very quickly. I will not be dealing with this trader again

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice tehnology, 4 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a lovely bit of technology.

I`m on Sky so had to do a bit of cable unravelling and it doesn`t tell you how to connect up Sky in the instructions but its simple enough when you think about it.

It arrived in time and well packed

5.0 out of 5 stars A good solid and dependable item, 27 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this camera for a friend who breeds collie dogs, there are always new puppies around and she updates her website quite frequently. Ive` not had chance to speak to her since I sent this to her but spoke today, and she's got 400 images to download which gives you some idea how busy she is. This camera has been really good and is continuing to do a really good job and I know that this lady is critical so I have no hesitation in recommending it to other members.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost decadent an Alpha plus, 25 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My book seat book Holder arrived today, I'm absolutely thrilled with it, I've read so many heavy books of many hundreds of pages and my thumbs get really sore.

It's absolutely beautiful, and extremely light, it just shows what people can do when they set their minds to designing a product, it's even got a compartment in the back for your glasses. It's an Alpha plus for this product

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch your waistline, 25 May 2011
This excellent little book is full of recipes for ice cream, you need to watch your waistline if you take these to heart and make everything that's in the book.

I bought these my wife having bought her the ice cream maker :-)
