4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 18 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price I can't complain. Pros:

It is easy to set up. Minimal tools required.
It's wireless!
Multi-funtional: Distance, ODO, speed, avs are all there + a few more.
Robust sensor and easy-to-mount magnet

Cons:
Mounting it is a little fiddly. You have to line it up quite precisely with the mounting bracket and then push and twist. Not a huge sweat but not as easy as the backwards-forwards slide-mount models.
It would be nice if there was a pause button. Unlike a non-wireless mode one can't unclip it and stop it recording. It will keep logging your mileage even in your pocket if you're moving!

All in all I would say it's a good little computer for the price and would recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly engaging, 15 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I must I really enjoyed this book. As someone who grew up in Zimbabwe I found the opening chapters particularly good. O'Neill's portrayal of rural Zim from the granite kopjies to the lurch of the buses plying the Beitbridge corridor are spot on.

The book is well researched and it's great to have a Zimbabwean black man as the central protagonist. Daniel Hove is flesh and blood! I was a bit disappointed that so much of the rest of the book is south of the border but it fits the plot and story.

My one regret is that the book seemed to wind up rather too hastily after such an elaborate and prolonged build-up. I don't want to add any spoilers though. The other is the cover - pretty dreadful really. Befitting a 50s era Rhodesian novella perhaps but a marketing blunder in this day and age.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled by picture, 23 Feb 2013

The truth is that this is not a glow-in-the dark product as the picture suggests. Well not in a practical sense. If you leave it on the colour change mode it is mighty pretty but the batteries run dry in no time at all which is a shame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tough and lightweight, 23 Feb 2013

These are good glasses that have done me well. The lenses are lightweight and not so dark as to be impractical on overcast days i.e. most of the year in the UK! The arms are tough and I'm surprised that I'm still using them a year down the line.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice but poor battery life, 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this on a special offer Black Monday deal and probably got a decent deal. I hadn't used a tablet device before so was pleased to discover how intuitive they are. After dimming the screen a bit and reading with white text on a black background I was able to read comfortably. There are also loads of apps from the Kindle Store but there are limitations as regards some of the software - I couldn't install Adobe Flash Player making Catch-up TV (and some other streaming services) a no go. Possibly the biggest drawback is the poor charge retention of the battery. If you don't use it on a daily basis you could get caught out after leaving it aside for a while. A memory card slot would also be great!

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job but impractical, 23 Feb 2013

It does the job of protecting the phone but I recommend rather using a screen saver and a silicone case to protect the back and sides of the phone. That way its much easier to manipulate on the go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Two things and two things only required of such an item: a) that it is durable (yes) and b) that it holds enough battery charge to make it practical (with 4xAA Ni-MH batteries it recharges my Galaxy Smart Phone twice over, perhaps more).

You would hardly believe this would be allowed in the cabin its so voluminous - probably too much so for many people's needs. However, if you anticipate a fair wack of hand baggage this is a cheaply-priced yet decent item.
