Nikon D3200 Digital SLR Camera Body Only - Black (24.2MP) 3 inch LCD
Nikon D3200 Digital SLR Camera Body Only - Black (24.2MP) 3 inch LCD
Price: £229.00

5.0 out of 5 stars simplistic but efficient., 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
what can i say, best camera we ever had...
best thing about it is that i can hand it to our 3-year old and she's able to use it too.
except for that the focus point selector button cant be locked - so she notoriously focuses in the top left corner.
and so does my wife later, cos the focus point arent reset to the middle after an on/off/on cycle....... if anything to complain about, it would be the missing focus point lock.... nikon - do you hear! in the next fw update, _please_ make the focuspoint reset to middle position.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paid for it self on first use. and then some., 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its early days but it works so 5 stars from me. I've already saved 300£ on replacing caps in our not-broken-anymore LG tv.
So you could say this thing has paid for itself (6 times) already..

Remember (!) to discharge caps before you start mocking about.
Google "Constructing a Capacitor Discharge Tool iFixit" if you are in doubt.

5.0 out of 5 stars nursery essential, 26 Mar. 2015
this is the thermometer that works best for our kids. it gives somewhat consistent readings, its tip is rubber so not cold to the skin, flexible so gives enough not to irritate.
our braun in ear thermometer gives worryingly high readings while this matches the ones used at the local hospital. we are Very glad to have found this thermometer, its has had heavy use for 3 years and works just as well. highly recommended

1.0 out of 5 stars not suitable, 24 Feb. 2015
main problem with this thing is that the attachment has been assembled with a rather large quantity of brown sticky grease inside the shaft. brown smelly grease surface when cleaning making it unsuitable for using around food. Aside of that, .. it works half as well as the cheap braun it replaced. not recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars nice but could be more robust, 18 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Bruder Ausa Minidumper (Toy)
It's ok. Thought it would be a bit more robust though...
its a jungle out there ..... wouldnt survive the day if used outside in the sandpit.
otherwise a cool toy for our little girl :-)
three stars meaning "its ok".
4 stars if it had been more robust, 5 stars if it also had been a wee bigger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fan-tastic!, 19 Dec. 2014
Fantastic frying pan!

We've so far aquired (replacing old teflon cookware)
Lodge Square Fat Free Fryer, 26 cm (THIS ONE)
Lodge Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Round Griddle, 10 1/2 Inch Diameter
Lodge Round Skillet with Handle, 16.5 x 3.1 cm
Lodge L8DOL3 Pre-Seasoned 5-Quart Dutch Oven with Loop Handles

Expensive wobbly Tefal pans lasting a year or two - goodbye!!
Cast iron stays nice and flat, giving an even heat - and best of all,
no toxins...
And as a bonus, they last for ever..!

... Sometimes evolution requires a step backward.

1.0 out of 5 stars genuine or not genuine, thats the question, 19 Dec. 2014
3 stars for this product as it is questionable wether its genuine, or not:

My card arrived with loose sealing tabs on the product packaging.
Sealing tabs, those clear round stickers that fold over the top and bottom edge of the products cardboard packaging are supposed to have a glue that cannot be removed without damaging the packaging. Well, this product had the tab coming off on one side and its glue is simliar to standard cellotape, Im able to remove the seal and stick it back on without damging the seal or the packgaging. This is a typical sign the product may be non genuine. So be warned.

edit. the card has now developed frequent read errors. reformatting cures it temporarily but issue returns. im sending it back and will get the sandisk eqvivalent.
