4.0 out of 5 stars Doing the job fine., 21 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been using this for about 6 weeks. No problems at all. Looks good, silent, does what it is suppose to do.

What loses a star is the interface is slow, not that it ever gets used apart from when setting up. It is also quite big compared to the last Netgear router I had.

Recommended to anyone with Plusnet fibre optic broadband.

Good quality, just as ordered.

Update November 2014. The metal tabs on the back don't last. They break out of the soft wood really easily. They can not be relied upon so best to tape up the back.

Arrived with a battery missing, partly down to the cheap 99p store style packaging. The red light does not work. Avoid the product. "This item is not eligible for return".

2.0 out of 5 stars Let down, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have all the other in the series which are good, but this one was actually quite boring. The Driving Force film is the best and is a well known documentary. The Intercity 1250 film had the sound about 3 seconds behind the video which was very poor. Not sure if they are all like that or a badly pressed DVD? Never come across it before.

Shame.

1.0 out of 5 stars Be warned, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived in about 3 weeks.

The battery for Desire HD does not fit unless you prize out the prongs a bit and put some card between the battery and charger.

There is no BS kite mark so has not been UK safety tested. I chucked it after one use. At £2.xx from Hong Kong, surely the postage would have cost more than the product?

I advise to avoid, but do read other reviews.

I was surprised with how quickly the memory arrived. I purchased the memory to double what I was already running so is being used with a different brand memory (Crutial I think). The price was good and the memory works fine. Have been using it for over a month with no issues.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 4 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had a Fuji 9500 since 2006. Time for an upgrade. The HS30 produces better quality photographs and is a lot quicker focusing than the 9500. A bigger screen is much appreciated and the zoom has to be seen to be believed! Full HD video is really useful, as is the ability to take photo's whilst filming. Low light mode is very impresive. The HS30 advertises up to F11, but that is for some reason only in Manual mode, not Shutter priority or Apeature priority (where F8 is the max). I find that for moving subjects, multiple capture is better than a signle capture as there is a 1 second delay when pressing the shutter half way down- the 9500 didn't suffer this. Also in S or A mode, you cant see both shutter speed and F number until the button is half pressed down. There is an annoying lip on the casing which gets in the way of the turning dial. I don't like the battery blocks as with the AAs I use, they are much higher in capacity and if you do run out, there is always a shop or garage nearby with some.

As with all cameras, it takes getting use to. A huge improvement on my 9500. I've had it about 3 weeks now with no major issues.

Update Nov 2012: Getting on fine, but the slowness is an issue. I have missed shots as my findger has been all the way down on the button but it is still faffing about processing the last photo. I use the top speed Kingston card. Even changing modes takes a while- like changing from S to A takes about 3-4 seconds before you can take a photo. Low light mode is superb. Video is annoying as the middle of the screen wobbles/bulges out at you. Switching off anti-blur seems to make no difference in video mode. Auto-focusing during filming is also poor. Overall, the slow overall speed knocks it down from 4 to 3 stars. Regretfully, it's going to have to be replaced with something faster.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the original, 4 May 2012

A bit over priced for what you get. It's not made like the original (cheap plastic) and the tune does not have the 'tick' that the original had.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, 17 July 2011
It's comfy and a good price. It was lasted me 2 years but the bottoms are now worn and the sole has come away from the rest of the shoe. Although I am looking around for an alernative that may last 2 or more years, I'll get another one of these should my search not succeed.

3.0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't say 'advanced'., 22 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The screen is easy to fix and is a slight fraction smaller than the HTC screen so it is easy to get straight and no cutting required. At just 1 in each pack, it is very over priced. Doesn't seem very sticky so I don't think will last long. The screen also looks very 'matt'- like photo noise, once applied. Is is nice and smooth on the touch and has not had any impact on the phone usage. No finger marks are left.

Overall OK, but I wont bother getting another. Have a good case for your phone and keep the screen clean should be sufficient.
