Great product, bargain price. Was worried about the 10 metre length not working but needn't have worried - it worked just fine. Quite flexible but seems to be good quality.

Brilliant product, luxurious feel, works exactly as described. A complete bargain even taking into account the quite high postage costs.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment..., 6 Sept. 2013
Couldn't agree more with the previous two posts, after all this time we get this, mind you I notice the price has miraculously dropped from £16.99 earlier in the week to £11.55 including delivery now. Is that a coincidence?

The book is littered with dogmatic statements in contrast to all previous versions where they were careful to avoid that. Contradictions abound, references to `vehicle' (the bits cut & pasted no doubt from the car book) while other bits refer to `machine' (the bits written by a biker no doubt). Statements like ..."activating ABS means you've lost control..." Really?

Heavy use of the rear brake "...causes the rear wheel to rise..." Really? Are they sure they don't mean the front brake? Did that car driver by any chance write that bit too?

And the diagrams often contradict the words. Page 183 states that when you turn left the best place to be is on the left and yet page 184 shows a rider turning into a `normal' left turning from the offside of their lane?? The text states that `swan necking' is misleading, but positioning to the offside of the lane to turn left isn't somehow? Confused you will be.

Then there's those diagrams that Almirante-Biker refers to on overtaking. The diagram where you don't have to reduce speed as you approach the vehicle has the rider coming up to within a couple of bike lengths of a lorry and then swooping out, then miraculously turning into a car as they return to the nearside. Yet on the following pages we have a situation where a rider comes up to a car to match its speed, much safer, yet with a far greater distance behind it and a good view over it as it's only a small car. Where's the sense in that? At least it remains a bike when it gets back to the nearside again....

However surely the best one must be on page 202. Here we have a diagram advocating how to do it correctly from a position dangerously close to the centre rear of a lorry (what is it with that rider and lorries?) and then swooping out without any vision into the offside lane. Crazy or what? On that same page we have "...never try to jump the queue. It annoys road users and can be dangerous." (It's that car driver again....) which seems to contradict the section on filtering. Anomalies such as this abound. I agree with `The bike coach' who "expect(s) it to be withdrawn, corrected and re-issued (hopefully)" Me too...

4.0 out of 5 stars Why did I not find this earlier?, 6 Sept. 2013

Once having tried this you'll never wish to turn back to the old original strap. Gives immediate access to the camera and with the strap reinforcing the pad on the outside and a secure clip I feel that the security will be good even for large DSLRs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Class double act, 9 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been meaning to move over to wireless keyboard and mouse for some time now I finally took the plunge, not with this pairing but with a cheaper unbranded mouse and keyboard. Whilst they were good, they were nothing compared to the Desktop 3000 mouse and keyboard pairing. What forced me to buy again was the fact that I had previously used the wired Microsoft Media keyboard and mouse and missed all the application and short cut keys that combination had. What surprised me most with this set however is the sheer quality of both the keyboard and mouse. The keyboard is a joy to use, not just because of all the short-cut keys, all of which are customiseable I believe, but the quality of the action of the keys themselves. They are both nicely muted and with a silky smooth feel. All in all an excellent keyboard.

I was originally considering getting a logitech mouse, the M705, but with Amazon's pricing as it is at the moment it's actually cheaper to buy the keyboard and mouse as a set rather than the keyboard on its own so that's obviously what I did, with the intention of buying the logitech mouse separately. However having now used the mouse that comes with this set (separately called the Wireless mouse 5000) I've decided not to. It's quite big for a mouse but is very well made with a beautifully tactile, solid feel to all the switches and with nicely cut out sides for gripping. It's quite heavy but feels very comfortable in the hand for my medium-sized hand. The only small downsides for me are the smooth, highly polished surface that can feel rather sticky at times and the fact the the wheel spins smoothly without the option of having 'notches' as per the logitech version. Although that's something I feel I'll soon get used to.

Overall I'm really pleased with this combination, for the price of 32.99 I feel its a bargain. Buy with confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding series, 30 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Politician's Wife [DVD] (DVD)
I remember becoming hooked when this series came out originally, but seeing it once again brought all that back. Yes, it may have become just a little dated now but the performances from Trevor Eve and especially Juliet Stevenson have lost nothing of their impact, for me at least.

1.0 out of 5 stars Superb film let down by poor quality transfer, 26 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is for the Blu-Ray Extended edition of the film, not the film itself. I love this film and rate it as one the the true greats, however if you already have the extended version on DVD save your money. First and foremost the quality of this edition on Blu-Ray is appalling. I have very good equipment that has been calibrated professionally, yet Fellowship of the Rings looks like a black and white film that has been digitally coloured. It looks so false that it keeps taking you out of the story. The upscaled DVD is preferable. Not quite so important, though still annoying, is the fact they couldn't get the whole film on one Blu-Ray disc. I'm sure that would have been possible technically. This has become a cash cow for the company who seem not the slightest bit interested in their loyal following - the only ones likely to be still buying this series ten years on. I feel I have been taken for a ride on this one.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb little torch, 4 Nov. 2011

I must admit that I was a bit sceptical given its small size, but I needn't have worried. This is an excellent torch with an amazing output for its size and battery and well made as well.
