4.0 out of 5 stars Pocket Rough Guide Amsterdam, 26 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Neat, literally pocket sized guide. Lots of in depth information about the sites Amsterdam has to offer. Good tips about getting from the airport into Amsterdam. Used the train from the airport into the centre. Stops at a couple of stations that have 'Amsterdam' in the name - but it is 'Amsterdam Central'you need. One strange thing, got on train, and left Amsterdam Central without tickets be checked or surrendered.
Particularly liked the waterproof removable map. Small scale but useable. The one I bought was an older edition - hence only 4 stars - ensure you get the most up to date copy you can.

Great piece of kit- looks good - clear as a bell -BUT- sooooo many buttons and a pain to set up - however, once it is set up - works well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle returns, 1 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love my Kindle - spend ages reading and this is a great way to do it. I have 2 Kindles, #3&4. Both Kindles #1&2 had screen problems. #1 lost 25% of the screen and had vertical lines. #2 had a single vertical line and lost contrast as the page was being read. So why 4*? because the Amazon service is second to none. Rang Kindle service, explained the problem - also explained I had tried the re-set as directed, but didn't fix the problem. On both occasions, had a replacement Kindle within 24 hours. Followed the collection instructions for returning the faulty Kindles - again, a fast (cost free) collection happened within 36 hours.
So, if something goes wrong with an Amazon purchase - fear not - it will be sorted quickly and without extra cost.
Just as an add on - have bought multiple items from Amazon - and have found that - with postage taken into account - it is cheaper than Ebay. Plus the doubt on Ebay of a supplier being genuine - that doubt doesn't occur with Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 19 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought an £8 sandwich maker from tesco - and having made about a dozen toasties on it before the non stck coating came off - cheese melting out of the sides, into the hinges and having to butter the outside of the bread before putting in the machine - decided I needed something better if I was to continue enjoying toasties!
I looked at all the feedback on the Breville VST025. The price was reasonable - so sent off for it - arrived next day. Here are the plus points as against the £8 machine.
1. Dont have to butter the outsides of the bread.
2. Takes 2 sandwiches of any sized bread - including large loaves.
3. It heats up in about 2mins - quicker than the time it takes me to prep the sanwiches.
4. Does a perfect cheese toastie in 4 mins.
5. Cleaning is a breeze, qick swipe with a paper towel - done.
6. Can cook foods other than bread - although I haven't tried that yet.
7. Looks good.
Negative points against the £8 machine.
1. other than it being more expensive - can't name another minus.
In general, this is a good VFM piece of kit. I am very well pleased with the performance and would recommend it to anyone.Breville VST025 Sandwich Press

5.0 out of 5 stars protecting lenses, 13 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When you spend £100's on lens, it makes sense to protect them. I have 5 lens from a 50mm to 500mm, and if you just throw them in a camera bag, they get chipped, coating gets worn and you reduce the resale value. Having a good lens case is paramount - ok - it may reduce available space somewhat - but it pays in the end. Thin, cheap plastic cases are a false economy. Lowepro may be a bit more expensive - but not a lot and they are ideal for the purpose. You get what you pay for and Lowepro delivers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Logitech, 24 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Given that this is a PC sound system - not sure why so many complain about the leads being too short. Also - the volume does work when ear phones are plugged in! That said - this is a great system for the price - sounds good - looks good - the bass is awsome - dont put it up too much if you have picky neighbours - the floor shakes.
Games - music - rings all the bells for me - and in great clarity. One thing I found - my 15 year old headphones didnt do the business - went and bought a set of Sony dynamics- NEW - now I'm rocking. worth every penny.
