1.0 out of 5 stars Webcam stream not password protected, 2 Feb. 2015
I bought these last week, and while playing about with it I found that the webcam stream is not password protected, so my webcam and everyone else's webcam is open to the world if you just type in the right URL. Completely unsecure. Philips have not responded to the security complaint yet, so the cameras went back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Need to be 13 years old to play on PS4, 2 Jan. 2015
Unfortunately EA and Sony have really crippled this game on the PS4. First of all, you need to have a Playstation Plus account to play it at all, so a £40/year subscription is required just to play the game that you are paying £35 for in the first place. Secondly, although the game is rated 7+, you need to have an EA Origin account to play it (as well as your Playstation Plus account), and you need to be over 13 to have an EA Origin account, which they validate against your PSN account. So if you have a sub-account on the playstation that has your child's true DOB, they can't play the game until they are 13 - even though it's a PEGI 7. EA should be ashamed of themselves - this is false advertising on terms of age requirements, and it's unbelievable that they charge so much for a game that also requires such an expensive annual subscription.

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting but dated, 17 Sept. 2014
some interesting facts in here, but some of it is really out of date now. Could do with updating for park changes made in the past couple of years.

3.0 out of 5 stars It should be illegal to release any small gadget like this without a micro-USB charging socket, 5 Sept. 2014
This review is from: GoPro Wi-Fi Remote (Electronics)
Works a treat. It's basically the same size as the camera, and mirrors the camera LCD, and 2 main buttons. However, the proprietary charging cable makes it a 3 star product. It should be illegal to release any small gadget like this without a micro-USB charging socket. Perhaps it was to make it waterproof, but find a way to make the micro-usb socket waterproof instead of inflicting a new cable on us.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't believe what good quality these were, 17 Aug. 2014
I couldn't believe what good quality these were. I've had glasses from the opticians which are similar quality. Very pleasantly surprised.

Worked really well, and at this price it's almost cheap enough to be disposable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely deadly, 4 Feb. 2014
I can't believe this passed the safety tests for sale. When I used mine, I used a glass that met all of the size guidelines (80mm wide, 2mm thick), and as I pressed down, the glass shattered, very nearly shredding my hand in the process. It's a death trap.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can't send SysEx files, 14 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this cable to send SysEx files to my Roland vdrums. After much wasted time I found that this cheap cable doesn't work for doing that. It receives SysEx files fine, but can't send them. Waste of money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing - buy a regular android tablet instead, 18 Nov. 2013
I bought a Kindle Fire HD for my kids for Christmas. Unfortunately, having tried it out, it's gone back. The key problems are;

1) The app store is very limited. There are loads of great games out there on the Google store, but they aren't available in the Kindle store. For example, there is a Furby app, but it's not available for Kindle Fire. That limited set of apps is going to be a real disappointment.

2) The charging socket requires you to put the cable in at a 30 degree angle. It's hard for an adult, and I know the kids are going to try and ram the cable in straight and break it. The odd angle serves no ergonomic purpose, so I have no idea why Amazon did this.

3) The user interface just isn't as nice as a regular Android tablet. It's hard to figure out where you are and how to open menus and things like that.

4) It shows adverts on the lock screen unless you pay another £10. I don't want adverts pushed on my kids like this.

5) The much touted parental controls are only for amazon.com customers, not amazon.co.uk customers. This seems to be a general theme - the US gets a better Kindle Fire experience than that UK.

However, in fairness it's not all bad;

1) It's the only tablet other than an iPad which has LoveFilm integration

2) It's got a lovely display

But in my opinion, the negatives far outweigh the positives. It's a shame - Amazon have produced a great piece of hardware for the price. Unfortunately the OS and the app store are just not up to scratch.
