2.0 out of 5 stars Not much better than OEM battery, 14 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having now used this battery for a few weeks I have to admit its a little disappointing. It lasts at best about 4 hrs longer than the original 1350 maH battery. As its supposed to have double the capacity I'm beginning to wonder if I've been sold a fake. My Galaxy Ace is used mainly for emails and texts. According to the stats most of the power is used on Cell standby Google services and Phone idle all at 28 per cent. With this usage the standard battery lasts 2 days.The new battery lasts a couple of hours longer.

Needed to model knitted hats for market stall. Good flat base and well proportioned. Used quite a lot and seems pretty resilient.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super fast high capacity card, 25 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my Cannon EOS 600 camera. It works very well. Due to its read/write speed I can take 2 18 mega byte images per second so there no noticeable time lag between taking one image and the next. Its size means I'll never run out of memory.
An excellent product.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than expected, 16 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Considering its price this effects pedal is very good value. Apart from modelling accurately any number of well known effects such as waa, autowaa, chorus, flange, distortion,noise gate etc. It also incorporates a number of delay effects which can be of fixed repeat and delay time or variable repeat controlled by the pedal. It can also mimic some well known amp speaker combos. All the effects and amp models can be modified to some degree as well as adding several effects together. There are 50 pre-set effects ready to use. You can select any one of these and adjust it to your own liking and then save it to one of 50 storage locations. As well as more sound bending facilities than you can shake a stick at it also has a built in tuner and a user adjustable drum machine. The RP90 is really easy to use and program and is a joy to own. It even comes with its own power supply.

4.0 out of 5 stars Einstein for children, 5 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wish I had books like this during my childhood. I read this book to some 10 and 11 year old children in the school I worked in. On the whole they enjoyed the book although on occasion I needed to reread a section or explain it again before they understood the passage;which is fair enough when following a fairly complex train of thoughts. The descriptions of time and space dilation near light speeds are clear and well written. The chapter showing that you can never catch up to a photon of light was inspired. The book takes the main concepts and introduces them with care and explains their ramifications and slowly builds up idea by idea to the fully explained special theory of relativity. The use of a female protagonist Gedanken was refreshing and the incidental episodes helped to split the more difficult physics conceptualising into more manageable chunks. It is a good insight into how ideas based on known facts can evolve into hypotheses and eventually theories.
Although not all the children followed all the science they at least have some idea about Einstein and they did enjoy the adventure.
An excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids who get bored on long journeys, 5 Aug. 2011

Bought this specifically to keep my 10 year old amused during a long drive. Worked really well as he watched it twice and giggled through most of it. For £3.95 it was well worth it

4.0 out of 5 stars Good mix of songs, 11 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fingerpicking Pop Hits (Paperback)
I bought this book initially because it had Eric Claptons Wonderful tonight, a tune I had wanted to learn for years. I am not a particularly accomplished player but I have found many of the arrangements rewarding to learn. I'm particularly proud of 'Every Breath you take' which took quite some practice. All in all a book I would recommend for those with a couple of years experience.
