4.0 out of 5 stars Necessity or Luxury?, 6 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a mains adapter, it works, there is nothing much more I can say, although, reading reviews on battery life for the animal repeller, it is probably a necessity rather than a luxury.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Tripod, 11 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The tripod was bought to mount my Sony CX550 camcorder, which is mostly used for filming steam trains on the main and preserved lines. I needed something light and reasonably compact as I often walk quite long distances to find suitable filming locations.

The 60AV fulfilled these needs with the added advantage of allowing control of camera functions through the pan and tilt lever. Its head movement is smooth and well damped, and the zoom switch is much more controllable than that on the camera. There is also a slow zoom function, but the standard setting is so sensitive that I found I did not need to use it.

The tripod is light and could be troubled by wind buffeting, but with all the camera functions available to the single hand on the pan/tilt control, the other hand can be used to brace the tripod against the wind.

Thoroughly recommended.

This review is from: The King's Speech [DVD] (DVD)
We enjoyed the film, it makes a fascinating story out of a simple situation. It deserves its awards.
As always promptly delivered by Amazon, and a pleasant surprise, the refund of the difference between pre release price, and the high street price when released.

Not a lot you can say about a jigsaw, it is on thick board and fits together accurately, the picture is technically and historically accurate and precisely painted, and there are no endless expanses of uninteresting sky or similar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value Laptop, 20 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This laptop was selected on a combination of price and features, and is mainly used for downloading hi-def images from a camcorder.

It has lived up to everything expected of it. It was turned on and instantly connected with our wi-fi system, it downloads hi-def seamlessly displaying it well, and the 500gb HDD means that space is not an issue. It has good battery life, the numeric key pad is a definite plus, we use the webcam for skype, and it looks good.

It is a little slow for editing hi-def, but will do it, which is a bonus as that is not what it was bought for.

The final plus was the quick Amazon delivery, expected Monday, arrived the previous Friday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect Interchangeability, 17 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The results are excellent, the camcorder is easy to use and produces good video, although the quality suffers a little in poor light. It has a viewfinder and an external mike can be fitted, features often missing now, which to me are essential.

The niggles; the viewfinder is not adjustable for angle, which makes life difficult if you wish to use it with a low tripod setting. The batteries appear the same as those used on previous models such as the UX3, but have slightly different lugs on the back and are not interchangeable. Likewise you will be unable to use the HDMI cable used with a UX3, the CX550 has a mini HDMI socket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Answer to MP3 Charging, 9 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is not much to say about this, it was cheap, arrived on time, and does its job.
It removes the need to take my laptop if I'm going away and want to charge my player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Results From a Tiny Package, 9 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this product because of the reputation of, and my experience of, Sandisk memory cards. They have always been reliable and accurate in the extreme conditions in which I have used them.

First impressions excellent, very small, easily hooked up to the PC, swallowed a lot of music, and sounded great at home.

Then I took it on a long train journey, it was not loud enough. Modern trains fine, on busy stations and old rattlers it was inaudible. I thought it would have to go back.

I tried the Sansa help desk, and the product forum. The latter gave me the answer first, the former, after prodding, linked me to the forum.

We are the victims of meddling EU bureaucrats and are not allowed too have too much volume in case we damage our ears. Does this mean that the noise on old trains and Crewe station is illegal? It drowned the music from the Sansa!

The answer - go to "Restore Factory Settings" and select "Rest of the World" rather than "Europe". It will then rattle your eardrums with the best of them. No other functions are affected.

Back to highly impressed, battery life is good, twelve hours so far with the indicator still showing over half full, and it drives a large set of Sennheiser headphones very effectively. Truly great performance from a tiny package.

Delivered quickly, installed without trouble, and worked as soon as the PC was switched back on. What more could you ask for?
