5.0 out of 5 stars A great present for the Seniors, 28 Nov 2012
OK - so it appeals to the young geeks and nerds, But is it suitable for your Nan? Yes, yes - it's just what she needs. Images are sharp and bright - and can be made as big as needed. And the sound on the wee thing is impressive. It does so much: you can consume anything you might have gone after on a big desk machine. Your Nan will not be using it to write a novel - virtual keyboard is perfectly good for short entry but it responds very well to voice commands. Critically, you do not need to go to training camp to use it. So often "plug and play" is a promise beyond heaven - never delivered. Well this is plug and play straight out of the box.


Flyye Low-Pitched Waist Pack MultiCam
Flyye Low-Pitched Waist Pack MultiCam

5.0 out of 5 stars Pricey but lovely, 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This bag has a Rolls Royce price tag, costing four times more than its popular, cheap equivalent. But the Flyye label does not have the ring or majesty of "Rolls Royce", so is it the quality that justifies the mega bucks? The camo colour may have an appeal for some, but most of us will see "Army surplus" - not noted for luxury. The quality of the bag speaks to you in the first click of the buckle. You will have used dozens of buckles of this sort - now listen to class. The waist strap is silky and very soft to the touch - not in keeping with the macho camo colours, but that silky texture has a grip that ensures the belt does not slip down, or ride up: five miles on, it is exactly where you put it. Opening and closing the compartments is a one handed job, no fumbling to get the zip under tension, to lift the seams out of the way, to get an even engagement of teeth. The zip glides smoothly, evenly - and, yes, it has "that" feel. Capacity is no greater than the common off the rack cheapo, so you will not be carrying more on your rambles, but you will just enjoy putting the thing on, not having to haul it back up into place, and get a little dash of delight every time you open or close it. Yeah, pricey but lovely.

3.0 out of 5 stars A box worth the price, 19 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Remember the Christmas presents when the box gave more pleasure than the contents -I bought this for the circular case. I had been looking for the circular case for a long time. It somehow persuades me to put the bits back after use, so they have lasted longer than other drill bits: I'm no longer losing bits.
The bits are OK and cheaper than buying similar in a high street DIY.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sad, shoddy, 19 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This nasty little piece of tat carries the historic Roberts label. I have four Roberts radios. They have outperformed and outlasted every other brand I have owned.
It was the death (my fault entirely)of my Roberts R617 4 band Digital Receiver they made this purchase necessary. Design is poor, the buttons are miserable, the tuning wheel would disgrace a Christmas Cracker. The quality of the reception is indifferent and the sound would not pass muster in a £5 radio.
It was not surprising to find it failed within a week of purchase. The supplier expressed surprise at the failure and my dissatisfaction, but gave me a refund instantly. I have replaced it with a very nicely made Sony giving a solid performance - it cost less then £10 - and though it does not receive short wave in every other respect it is superior to the Travelling Light 2 PLL. It is sad to see the Roberts brand reduced to this.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one for two, 19 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is just perfect for two people. It can take the gammon joint and the spuds (though the gammon needs fifteen minutes before the spuds go in)- so in size terms this is the business. We also have the bigger one - for more elaborate cooking and for 2+ servings. The WMFs lock easily, get up to pressure quickly and cook rapidly. Lifting to the sink to reduce pressure is very easy with this one - it is quite light, the big one needs more muscle, it is heavy. Cleaning is very easy. I reckon this one is used five times a week, the big one less then once a week. So for two this is the one. For a fmaily of 3+ you need the bigger one. Either way, both get the food to the table a whole lot faster (and you spend less on gas/electricity). A good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Save money - buy this, 19 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I sent back the £50 radio - flimsy, feeble and faulty. This little fellah belts out the news bulletins, crisp and clear. My hearing is not as good as it was, but this can fill the room and then some. Manual tune to main stations acccurately, not much leeway, but very precise, both here(UK) and in France. You will not be buying it to listen to the Proms, but for very reliable voice radio this is a neat, light good value radio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 19 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My bunker was built with nuclear attack in mind. Radio signals fail, the Belkin beats its little heart out. Enter the Alfa - it can pick up thought waves on another planet. I did not know you could have this many bars on the reception icon. Unfailing and whizzo fast.Why did nobody tell me about this before?

5.0 out of 5 stars Small, perfectly formed, with knock-out performance, 16 Oct 2010
This neat little speaker comes in a cover that's tight as Speedos - and padded. Throw it in your travel bag, it needs no pampering. Plug it into your notebook and you may find the neighbours knocking on the walls telling you to turn the sound down. And the sound is crisp, clear and full bodied. I have tried quite a few speakers - Logitech, heavy, bulky, fiddly and more than twice the price. The Orbit is definitive - only a Blue-Tooth implant could challenge it.
