5.0 out of 5 stars Smart and low profile, 30 Jan. 2013

I bought this watch to wear when swimming or doing manual tasks because it is slim and waterproof. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the colour of the indices and hands is gold (not orange as suggested by the photo) and that its appearance is very smart.

I bought this as a present for my husband as he really liked the first book. He is equally liking this one and asked if there were more in this series.

This review is from: The Delta Chain (Kindle Edition)
This book like his other book is really interfering with my day to day life. It is so good with lots of plots leading up to the finale it is near impossible to put down. This writer is now in my top 10 of favourite writers.

4.0 out of 5 stars EDIT: 12 Jun 2013, 28 Jan. 2013

Received a replacement for the item previously reviewed (see last paragraph below).
With regard to the replacement: I received someone else's return and so the packaging was a bit tatty, all the protection films were missing and the strap had a tiny scuff and a couple of creases. However, I set the time and found that it was accurate to +/- zero after 3 days so I decided to keep it as I had already gone through the steep learning curve (necessitated by the manufacturers failure to provide good quality comprehensive instructions).
It is now about 4 months on: The watch is still accurate to +/- zero, it is not too big so is a pleasure to wear and it is easy to read the time/date with only the most cursory of glances. The top of the 3 buttons conveniently turns off the alarm and toggles it on an off if you just press it briefly. This would now be a 5 star rating if it wasn't for the incomplete instructions. So, bearing in mind that this is only a 4 month review, if you are happy to work around the poor instructions and if you get someone different to the person I got when asking the manufacturer for help, then I don't think that you would be disappointed.

Previous 1 star review 4 months ago:
The instructions which come with this watch are for a 2 button watch (one crown and one push button below). However, the watch is a 3 button watch (one crown, one push button above the crown and one below). If the extra push button did nothing and was just a pointless decorative item then I suppose this could be ignored. However, the top button does change things and make things happen - but what? You will not be able to ascertain this, you will just be able to see the chrono hands whirring this way and that to various mysterious time settings. The way the buttons control the watch is very complicated. For example, you have to set a "reference time," an alarm time and the actual time - and whenever you change the actual time all the other "times" have to be changed as well - but you don't know how to do this properly because the watch ships with "standard" instructions for a 2 button watch. Nice looking watch - rendered useless by the manufacturers lack of care and carelessness. The manufacturers representative was in my opinion surprisingly arrogant, insulting and uncompromising when I emailed my complaint. Very strange.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 years use and still going strong, 26 Jan. 2013
At 2 years use and still going strong in a very much used semi-commercial D90 this, for us, has been a very good battery. Which is why I am back here now ordering another. We have never bothered to compare discharge time to the Nikon which came with the camera bit I would say it lasts noticeably longer - as it should, given that the Nikon is stated as being ~1500mA/h and this is stated as being 2,200 mA/h.

Bought this as a present for our son. He has had nothing but good things to say about it. It has a good picture quality, good sound, easy to use.

Was disappointed in this book. Nowhere near as good as the previous books. As it was a sequel it could have done with now and again refreshing our memories on crucial points.

Bought this for my daughter to use as her school bag. Much bigger than her previous one and very roomy inside. Soft padding on the shoulder straps. Would recommend this bag.
