5.0 out of 5 stars A very neat little camera, 28 April 2009
This little camera is easy to install and produces good quality results. It is particulary useful used with Windows Live Messenger. It has some VERY amusing video tricks to play with too. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure genius, 8 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Letters (Audio CD)
This album is Jimmy Webb showcased at the pinnacle of his creative genius. Simple arrangements of complex songs delivered with feeling and sincerity in a semi-acoustic setting. The version of Galveston on this album is probably one of the best recordings he has ever made. If you never buy another CD, buy this one!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great, 8 Feb. 2009
This review is from: And So: On (Audio CD)
I am a huge fan of Jimmy Webb, but this album is a complete disappointment. I kept my copy for a week and then sold it on Ebay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 2 line budget system, 8 Feb. 2009
If you are looking for a budget 2 line telephone system, look no further! These feature rich neat little handsets when combined with the DECTsys base unit offer all the characteristics of systems costing three or four times the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little tuner!, 8 Feb. 2009
I was a but sceptical about this clip-on device, but that was simply the shock of the new, as I have previously only used tuners with an integral microphone. This little tuner is the best I have ever used; not only good for the guitar, but the banjo too. And as the display is extremely clear in all lights I'm now utterly convinced and could, if needs must, sell these for a living!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every SWL or Ham, 8 Feb. 2009
This well written and nicely laid out book, replete with copious diagrams, is a must have for every SWL or Ham since antennas are at the very heart of these fascinating pastimes. The title is a tad misleading though; there is NOTHING basic about this book. In order to understand the contents you will need to have more than a basic comprehension of physics and electronics. It covers dipoles, loops, yagi arrays, longwires and multi-element arrays too... from the theory to actual construction. All-in-all, a very useful reference work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very handy, 8 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Telephone Adaptor
If your telephones do not have the standard UK BT type plugs, then you'll need these handy little adaptors. They are also useful if your telephones do have the standard BT type plugs and you want to attach these to say an adsl router for VoIP telephony, as they convert the other way too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact and easy to use, 8 Feb. 2009
This neat little answering machine couldn't be easier to setup or use. And as it is quite compact it doesn't eat up too much desk space either. With an easy to see display, a choice of how many rings before it answers and a very handy bleeper to alert you when messages have been received, it has been my choice on more than one occasion. The only thing you might need to purchase to go with it are phone adaptors as the connectors on this device are ONLY the standard BT type phone socket.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fix your own glasses, 7 Feb. 2009
This review is from: UKayed Optical Repair Set
If, like me, you occasionally sit on your specs, drop them or otherwise abuse them so small screws drop out never to be found again, then this little kit is for you!

4.0 out of 5 stars You need a big pocket, 7 Feb. 2009
I bought this dictionary as I employ a number of Polish workers. It has proven to an extremely useful communications aid. However, it isn't really a pocket dictionary, unless you have truly colossal pockets.
