3.0 out of 5 stars Great unit............but, 25 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What this unit does is very good.
Decent sound as well.
However I am on my 2nd radio as the first was returned to Roberts after it "froze" during a software update.
My current unit has the frustratingly annoying habit of random "rebooting". Luckily it doesn't lose any presets.
I've read elsewhere that the "rebooting" is a common problem.

1.0 out of 5 stars A grinder that doesn't grind., 1 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Been using, nay, persevering with this for a few months now and have come to the conclusion that it was a waste of money on my part.

It hardly grinds any peppercorns. They just don't fall into the grinding slot. The time spent waiting for it to grind a small amount is extremely frustrating.

I am currently looking for a good old fashioned hand grinder.

3.0 out of 5 stars Budget HD Camcorder, 1 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used this now for a couple of months.
My findings/opinions are as follows............

Pros:-
Compact size.
Easy to use.
Separate SD memory card.
Auto lens cover when power off.

Cons:-
No viewfinder (a pain when there is bright sunlight and you try to view the LCD screen)
Light sensor not the best. Low light footage is incredibly "grainy".
In built microphone suffers terribly from wind noise, even in the slightest breeze.
Photo quality average, even on highest resolution settings.

Advice:-
Do your research before upgrading to a digital camcorder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give This Lady A Listen.............., 26 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Back To Zero (Audio CD)
Like the previous reviewer I too saw Jill supporting Runrig and was well impressed by her talent.

Great voice and a good songwriter.

Listen to her on Speedway if you get a chance.

Just need Amazon to get their act together and sell her first album and EP at sensible prices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Impressed., 22 Jan. 2010

This review is from: Best of Diane Arkensto (Audio CD)
Tried this disc and am well impressed with it.

I'd class it as my "chill out" music.

Will be definately investigating her back catalogue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Initially Disappointed, 22 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Received the drive the other day.

Few problems.
1. The software wouldn't install from the disc, initially, but I eventually got it to load.

2. The Firewire isn't working. All my Firewire ports work with my video camera but wont pick up the drive. Support request to Western Digital, which I was assured would be answered within 24 hours, has still not been answered after 48 hours. After Googling the problem I came across a forum which stated that a lot of models were shipped with faulty Firewire cables. Western Digital normally send out a replacement but as they haven't answered my plea for help I've had no alternative but to order a replacement from Amazon which I hope will solve the problem. If it doesn't then it's being returned to Amazon.

The USB works o.k. but as I spent the extra cash for Firewire I want it to work.

I shall update this post.

UPDATE.

Cable arrived but still no difference.
Further research into the problem revealed that PCs do have problems with this drive, especially the Firewire.

So it's on its way back to Amazon I'm afraid and I've ordered a Lacie instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Estonia Rocks?........................................, 19 Jun. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this after listening to their first album Traces of Sadness. Much of the same but with "bigger" production. If you liked Traces of Sadness you'll like this. "Cool Vibes" was their entry for Switzerland that got my attention. Where is Estonia anyway?

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good.............., 14 Jun. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Traces of Sadness + DVD (Audio CD)
Came across this lot whilst watching the latest Eurovision Song Contest. Liked their effort, found this debut album and was pleasantly surprised by what I heard.
Personally, it beats most of the female group lightweight "fluff" that is around at the moment.
I wont bore you with descriptions of every song suffice to say that I have just ordered their latest album, Blue Tatoo, on German Import.
Their Genre might be categorised as Euro Rock Pop with a sprinkling of Goth.
Don't care what you call it....... I like it.
