5.0 out of 5 stars Good bit of kit, 10 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for cleaning my camera, on tour and at home.

Very good blower, quite a bit bigger than my very old one with the brush, but it does work much better than that one.

The brush retracts into the pen. The brush is good.

The cleaner on the other end looks good but I've not tried it yet - good for cleaning the LCD display, I hope not to use it on the lens.

The cloth is useful for cleaning the LCD display as well, and again, I hope not to use it on the lens.

It need a little bag to keep it all in, nice and clean. I'll have to find one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Guide, 10 Sep 2013

Still reading it, but it seems a pretty good, comprehensive, guide. Lots of photos but plenty of text as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars No holes for charging plug and headphones, 10 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case was pretty cheap. It has holes for the switches on the sides but not for the charging plug nor the headphone plug on the bottom, which is a bit odd as the inner plastic casing that holds the phone does have these cutouts. I punched through the case (which has a cardboard interior between the outer covering) to make the holes. The magnetic catch is nice, and apart from the lack of these holes, the case is good. Now the holes are punched, the case is fine, but obviously the edges of the holes are not sealed up.

Good value AAA alkaline batteries. I looked up what the "Procell" meant and apparently they are for laboratory instruments and suchlike. Whether that makes them better quality than Duracell non-Procell batteries I don't know. Anyway, they are good value.

The battery is in a Sony pack, fits OK and, lo and behold, the watch goes again. Seens very good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 15 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This amp works well and passes Freeview signals (all I have tested) very well. Note that this particular model does NOT have an aerial amp - i.e. it does not pass 12V back up to the amp at the aerial - there is another version that does this which looks identical. I did not test the FM input (nor did I terminate the input - for the technically minded).

5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative and absorbing, 15 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am getting towards the end of the first novel. It is claimed to be a childrens' story, but the language is anything but. People from 8 to 80+ will enjoy it. The book is a mix between magic, rather like Harry Potter, and advanced sci-fi in its inclusion of multi-verses (multiple universes co-existing). The story in the first novel follows Lyra, aged about 11, in her quest to rescue her friend Roger from a set of people who are intent on carrying out experiments that require young children. The story is set in a universe similar to our own but different in a number of ways. I gather that the following novels cross to other universes. The book is really absorbing and is hard to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good deal, 13 Jun 2013

Batteries are dated to 2017. They seem fine, and I have to add 12 more words to this review, but there is not a lot to say about PP9 batteries, is there?

3.0 out of 5 stars Action-packed but unlikely, 8 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Key (Kindle Edition)
Given that you can suspend disbelief regarding the basis of the story, there are too many unlikely scenarios to make it semi-believable. All the same, it is gripping and enjoyable. It's just that you keep thinking "Hmm, can't quite believe that would really happen", and I'm not talking about the premise of the book, which is really really improbable. All the same, I enjoyed it.

Not a lot to say - it works fine and stops all the household noise from affecting the broadband. Gives quite an increase in reliability and speed (but maybe I have a "noisy" house).
