4.0 out of 5 stars Keyboard is pretty okay for a netbook, 21 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this when on a special offer reduced to 115 pounds for a few days on Amazon UK. Well worth the money considering the 11.6 inch screen. Compared to Apple iPad the colours are washed out, but you can't expect too much at this price point. Keyboard is pretty okay for a netbook. Windows 10 may not be an Apple or Android users idea of fun, but so far this machine has worked without glitches. Battery life if just browsing, doing simple Office type tasks (spreadsheets, word docs) is excellent.

Stopped working after about 10 minutes. Tried everything, including changing to newly bought batteries, but sensor wouldn't come back to life.
Returned to Amazon for refund. Don't know if Garmin had a bad batch problem or if their is some design or construction issue with this product.
I have used other Garmin products - nuvi car sat navs and Edge 200 cycle GPS computer extensively with no reliability issues.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what it is supposed to do - I bought it so I could hook it up to the Garmin ANT USB chip and then send my live bike data to the TrainerRoad training app on my PC, as I have started to train using (Virtual) Power.

Only 4 stars because I think it's a bit too plasticky for something that is supposed to permanently sit on the chain stay and be used in the wind and rain.

Works well, but Garmin instructions could be better indicating that when the device installs no App automatically opens on your PC to tell you it is receiving speed and cadence (or whatever other) data - you needto open Garmin Express or something similar (I use TrainerRoad at present).


Heimat 2 [DVD]
Heimat 2 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Henry Arnold

Price: £99.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding cinematic achievement, 7 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heimat 2 [DVD] (DVD)
In my opinion, the best series of the Heimat trilogy, followed by the original Heimat, and lastly Heimat 3. Slow paced, but unbelievably engaging, it follows ten years in the life of Herman Simon from his leaving his home village in the Rhineland to his four or five years as a music student in the Munich Conservatory and the trials, tribulations, loves, successes and setbacks of himself and his group of friends and lovers.

An earlier reviewer described how much he and his girlfriend enjoyed watching each episode of Heimat 2 - "we sit down in the evening, draw the curtains, put on the video, and don't answer the phone or the front door for the next 2 or so hours".

5.0 out of 5 stars An all time classic film, 7 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Barton Fink [DVD] (DVD)
This film, in my opinion, has one of the greatest scripts ever, which is more than done justice by John Turturro, John Goodman and the rest of the cast. A Cannes Palme d'Or winner, it's sad that it has never gained more acclaim from the general film watching public.
For those used to watching action films, the pace might seem slow, but the story unfolds turn by turn to give a hilarious ending.

I'll be surprised if the Coen brothers come up with a script as good as this one again.


The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs
The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs
by Tyler Hamilton
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read if you're interested in recent professional cycling history, 6 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tyler Hamilton, a former Tour De France contender and Classics Winner tells his side of the story in the pro peloton, detailing the pressures to dope to get results riding for the teams of Mr Armstrong and former Tour Winner Bjarne Riis.

As you all know, Lance has been exposed for who he is. For me one of the most memorable moments in the book, is when Tyler asks teammate George Hincapie whether it's necessary to dope to win in major races. Hincapie (one of Armstrong's lieutenants and teammates) gives a pearl of an answer - "You've got to figure it out for yourself".

Let's hope that cycling, or indeed any other major professional sport - never succumbs to the coverups and corruption that the UCI did in the 1990s and early 2000s - due to illicit performance enchancing substances again.


Hack: Sex, Drugs, and Scandal from Inside the Tabloid Jungle
Hack: Sex, Drugs, and Scandal from Inside the Tabloid Jungle
by Graham Johnson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting insight into how the riff-raff run the red top newspapers, 6 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Graham Johnson tells it as it was for him as a junior "investigative" hack at News International. It explains what motivates some of the personalities who ran the News Of The World, charts Johnson's gradual rise inside the paper and includes the hilarious tale of how his career at News International came to an end.

Could tell you more, but that would take the fun out of reading this tome. Will be interesting to see what the verdicts are on Rebekah Brooks, Andy Coulson and Co are in the ongoing interminably long phone hacking and perverting the course of justice trial.

Purchased this to protect a Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 lens. Haven't noticed this filter affecting the images, which means it's doing it's job so far.
