4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money, 24 April 2009
This product is excellent for the leisure player. It's well weighted and the frame is relatively sturdy. The strings it comes with are "O.K." and has a pre-set string tension of 26/24 lbs +/- 3 lbs.

The only negative experience I've had with this item is the plastic head gaurd protecting the top of the frame cracked within a month of playing and had to be replaced to keep the racquet weighted correctly. Maybe I'm just an agressive player, but I haven't had that problem before. I have replaced the top and it's fine now.

5.0 out of 5 stars R.E.M.arkable, 24 Feb 2004
Well where to start.
R.E.M have been around for many years now and have been hugely successful, manily after the release of the title "Loosing my religion" which stormed nearly every chart going at the time of release.
This CD encompasses some of R.E.M's greatest works. Timeless classics such as Night Swimming, Side winder, Orange crush and Every body hurts, makes this one of R.E.M's most desirable works of art.
R.E.M define indie rock in my opinion and the money spent on this CD is money very well spent. It's definitely and albumn which can be listened through, time and time again without getting bored of it.
A master piece.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fundamentals of Analytical chemistry, 24 Feb 2004
I am a chemistry student at the university of birmingham currently undergoing my analytical chemistry subject module.
Above most other books I have found this book to be by far the best for the following:
1) Interpretation and representation of complex and "new" ideas.
2) Use of "simple english" where others allow their descriptions to become over complex.
3) Use of diagrams.
This book is easy reading and information packed. It also comes with a handy CD that allows you to follow through key principles and ideas put forward at cetain stages of the book.
A must have for any analytical chemist.

4.0 out of 5 stars NAV:2003 - The only choice., 21 Jan 2003
A fantastic product. THroughout the years Symantech have strived to be the top dogs of home and corporate business / computer security, and with this product, they may well have reached their goal on the Anti-Virus front.
A few features:
- Comprehensive file scanning
- Fully editable
- Bloodhound technologyl; detects new viruses befor other companies even know they existed!
- LIve updates; keeping your virus definition "up-to date"
- Background protection
To go on would take me forever and I only have 1000 word :)
Seriously though, this is a product well made and designed with the home users in mind at nearly every stage. My only niggle is the fact that you must buy a new subscription service from symantech every 365 days to keep it updated against viruses. This however us worth it, as it only costs arounf £3.00 I believe.
A product not to be missed out on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Music with out the hassel!, 21 Jan 2003
Features, easy of use and quality are the three words that spring to mind with this MP3 player. Very robust yet lighter than a normal CD player, the Philips EXP511 MP3 CD Player is affordable and very well built.
The unit takes standard size CD's and with the ability to place up to 10 HOURS of music on one CD, you should need no more than 3 CD's to last you through the year!
The included batteries are a little short lived, and recharging them takes up to 7 hours which can be a slight pain, but the standard Alkaline "cheapo" batteries can last up to 20 hours from my experience with an MP3 CD playing.
The ear pieces are fantastic to say they actually come as part of the kit. Ergonomically designed to fit in well and hold the ear, they produce a very clear and crisp sound, even with the maximum bass setting on!
Comes with an "in-line" LCD screen which have become all to popular to the Mini-Disc players that SONY have produced. Makes browsing your CD a treat!
One word of warning. When making a large CD, do NOT just put them all onto the CD as one long list. Instead, try creating folders on your disc and placing groups of them in there, eg: A-D, E-H< etc etc. As the unit cannot skip multiple songs at once, meaning you would have to press skip up to 100 times to get to a song you like. BY placing them in a folder you can easily locate and play your favourite songs with a few clicks of the button.
The unit is sophisticated enough to recognise directories of a CD and play them at your request. It also has the ability to store up to 2000 favourites in its memory, allowing you to just pop a CD into the player, set it to play favourites and it will automatically start playing all of your best hits!
If Santa didn't bring you one of these for Christmas, then take advantage of the 31% off from Amazon, its a late gift!

As usual, not a fault. Delivered on time and well packaged. Money processed correctly.
