4.0 out of 5 stars Higher end compact., 17 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice camera, the large 1/7 sensor gives good definition pictures very noticeable improvement on 1/2.3. The zoom length covers the most used focal lengths. Pictures are very saturated even on muted colour setting which is brilliant for impressing people but not for giving a truly lifelike image, which requires a run through image processing. It also is not very compact because of the larger sensor and will fit in a larger pocket but not yer jeans!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great all rounder, 17 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At the reduced price it is a steal. I use it as a communication tool so I cant comment on games playing, but I was disappointed that there is no mini HDMI output as was shown in the advert pictures, but I went to a well known retailer and I couldn't find a single tablet with one. Otherwise the built in twin 3G SIM slots and memory expansion slot and GPS were highly welcome, it is perfect for a huge SatNav device if that grabs you. I bought a 3 network data SIM for one slot and this uses data in a number of countries including the USA at UK rates, fantastic on a recent trip to Alaska, when there was reception (not the fault of the tablet of course). The large screen is quite good enough definition for me. Could sit happily using WhatsApp in tiny towns and it used virtually no data for this purpose and running the BBC weather app . I should have tried Google maps which would have used some of course, but some places have wifi so you could download the map for the area without using the 3G allowance. The other SIM can be any standard mobile telephone card. You look a bit of a prune holding it up to your ear of course and likewise waving it around taking a picture. The cameras are really dreadful anyway, so leave that aspect to people with the latest ipad who want you to see the Apple logo. My Nexus 4 phone camera is incomparably superior. I like the metal back on this Starpad, expensive feel, and it had a nice logo, it just doesn't have the cachet of an apple! You won't get anything comparable at the price. It is a bit of a mixed bag but certainly very good for travel.

Very pleased with this, looks smart and easy to clean. The price is very reasonable indeed. Quite a number of different designs so I bought two!

5.0 out of 5 stars Chuck your useless Humax original!, 21 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Far better than the original Humax remote which required very precise handling on the OK and direction rockers, and also a lot of pressure so it was always a problem. This one works perfectly with normal pressure and although it does not look as nice, and the buttons are in different places, it is a dream in comparison with the Humax!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential in the kitchen, 18 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you don't own one of these you must buy it, a simple but effective way to slice onion. The spikes impale the onion then you just slide the knife down each prong, no more sliced finger! I had one for years then lost it, it took some while to find this replacement, which is not readily available in the shops

Quite nice laces appear good quality and hand made because, as is said by the seller, they are not identical lengths. They are good value for the quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value jacket, 18 Aug 2014
This is made from Hydrafort so it is tough, and impermeable to water and wind.I haven't tested it in heavy rain but a previous Hydrafort one I owned was very waterproof. The downside is that it is impermeable to sweat too so can get fairly wet on the inside. It also has only two side pockets with zips, no upper phone or security pocket. It packs down quite well too without being a pouch sized article.
