4.0 out of 5 stars 16 months on review, 23 Feb 2014
Easily assembled, took me an hour by myself. Cover works well and had no issues with cover blowing open (but it is reasonably sheltered), no leaks and is well ventilated (the opening part of the frame does not reach the ground - but does not worry me as it adds to the ventilation - reducing any condensation that may form - never noticed any though).
Cover has deteriorated now and will need to be replaced some time soon - knocked one star of because of this.
Overall happy with the purchase and would definitely recommend if you need to get your bike out of the weather.

4.0 out of 5 stars Would have been 5 stars except for issues with Outlook, 24 Sep 2012
Word, excel and Powerpoint I have no issues with, open older versions of my documents with no problems and save back the same.

Outlook problems

1. Cannot get read receipts
2. Cannot get delivered receipts

both essential in a business environment

3. When attaching an image you cannot change its size!!!
4. Messages are sent immediately - so you need to make sure your message is correct before sending - outbox not shown in sidebar!! They say to see outbox and stop the send you need to click a progress bar at the bottom - you will need to have pretty quick reflexes to do this.

Seems to me that MS released an early version of outlook in the hope of getting feedback from customers - should have been a beta version rather than a full release.

If you are not bothered about using outlook then suite of programs is fine.

This does not make sense. So will wait a little longer before making the purchase. Hope someone from Amazon realises this anomaly soon

3.0 out of 5 stars Xbox 360 4 gb - fun but beware, 15 Nov 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Xbox 360 4GB Console (Video Game)
Firstly - still have original xbox with a number of games.
Then bought PS3 - which developed fault in motherboard, which meant no internet connection for upgrades etc. Too expensive to fix.

So went to shop and asked about xbox 360 - 4Gb cheaper - so asked what difference was - assistant said if only for game saves and playing games 4 Gb was plenty, and usb ports means you can add an external hard drive. - so bought 4 GB connect.
4GB is internal storage; no hard drive.

PROS
Kinect is fantastic family fun (note family fun - 7 year old grandson loves it, 25 year old daughter really likes it (the dance program).
The matt finish of this 4GB box is better than the glossy one of the one with the already built in HDD.
Optional Hard drive simple to install.
Can use USB memory sticks - but see below.
Games not that bad - but feel the PS3 is better graphically.

CONS
Forza Motorsport requiures both discs to be installed to play properly - 2nd disk takes up 2GB of your storage.
Kinect takes up approx 1 GB of storage
Zune - if you go for dowloading music films (but you will never get a film on bare 4gb machine)takes up more space.
Demos ooff XBOX live will eat the remainder.
External hard drive will need formatting to be xbox compatible (xbox is fat23 not NTFS) so only 16gb is available to use with xbox and then it says it might give problems with games.
Need fast transfer USB stick - 16GB up to £30
This model is not backwards compatible to original xbax games - you will need to add the additional optional xbox HDD (if you want to invalidate your warranty you can use a cheaper laptop drive but you will need to know what you are doing, plenty of advice and videos online to show you how.
Not all original games are compatible.
No blu ray.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I thought it was but, 6 May 2010
as photo paper it's, but felt description a bit misleading.
Wanted the paper that had the postcard template on the back.
This was described as postcard!!

It's got canon printed all over the back, if you want the paper so that you can send a postcard it's different

Look for paper code KP-36IP which I found elsewhere; as it was not on amazon at the time, haven't looked lately so may be here now

Nikon MB-D10 Battery Grip for D300 & D700 DSLR Cameras
Nikon MB-D10 Battery Grip for D300 & D700 DSLR Cameras

4.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of kit, 26 April 2010
Only got four stars because of a bug with using it the first time with a Nikon D300.

Bug was easily fixed when I researched it, but Nikon do not seem to want to recognise it!

Problem was that having the setiing to use the battery in the grip first then to auto goto camera battery when it ran out of juice - did not work.

The fix
power up the camera with the MB-D10 attached with the camera battery removed. Then shut it down, reinsert the internal battery, reattach the MB-D10 and hey presto.
