5.0 out of 5 stars good video editor best value, 14 Sept. 2011
This editor was a replacement for Pinnacle and it is a very able replacement and better value for money (Which magazine rates it the best) The user interface takes a little getting use to but the online support and down loading facility is second to none.

4.0 out of 5 stars good hand tool, 14 Sept. 2011
This kit is reasonably comprehensive for all those little drilling and shaping jobs that requires some power. The only thing missing is a flexible power take off

4.0 out of 5 stars Scales are good but, 7 May 2011
These scales are accurate and consistent so for normal purposes meets all the needs of bathroom scales. But they require my full weight to get them to start (not just vibration as indicated in the instructions) and they are not suitable for wieghing low weights (e.g.hand baggage for a flight)

1.0 out of 5 stars This package is not for anyone who has used Windows and/or Office before, 19 Jan. 2011
I am moving from XP to Windows 7 and from Office 2000 to 2010. I felt that the differences between that which I have and the new programs waranted a book to help me familiarise myself with the new features and user interface.

This book is so basic that it has been of little use. The DVDs are equally simplistic. If you have never used Windows or Office before then this book may have some merit but if you have, look elsewhere.


Logitech Z-5 Omnidirectional Stereo Speakers
Logitech Z-5 Omnidirectional Stereo Speakers

4.0 out of 5 stars good value desk top sound, 30 Oct. 2010
These speakers have a small footprint and are ideal for the desktop. The sound stage is good and they provide a good stereo image. While the bass is necessarily limited the sound quality is excellent for listening to music at your desk. One other usage is for my GTR2 race simulator and the sound effects are definitely superior to my previous 3 speaker directional set up.

One down side is that the remote control does not work, but, I am at the desk with the keyboard at my fingertips so it is not a problem

4.0 out of 5 stars sufficient for most, 10 July 2010
I have always had the professional office suite but recently migrated to the reduced home version. as far as Word and Excel are concerned have no problems with the function or user interface
. You may have to store your existing files under a different name once you have opened them in 2010 to get a change of file type. It depends on what version of office you are migrating from but this is no hardship.

However be very careful with the installation I accidentally loaded the trial of the full version (professional) and had a troublesome period backing it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars best vac yet, 26 Sept. 2009
We have had many cylinder and upright vacuum cleaners including an earlier Dyson. This cleaner is undoubtedly the best yet and, given that Dyson now provide a 5 year warranty on the product, hopefully it will outlive its predecessor
