5.0 out of 5 stars Great - but 64GB isn't actually 64GB!, 27 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far so good - I use it to store my entire music library for use in the car, and as such it is perfect. My only gripe, which for some people might stop it being 5 stars, is that so much memory is unavailable - 64GB is actually 58GB - that matters to me as my library didn't quite fit (I needed 62GB) - that's a significant gap on a stick this size.

5.0 out of 5 stars Noir and atmospheric, 27 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Galveston (Kindle Edition)
Really enjoyed this - its not a cheery, happy read but it involves you by virtue of good characterisation and atmosphere, and if you like 'noir' fiction then this should be right up your street. The first thing I've read from this author, I haven't watched any of the TV stuff, but I will look out for more from him!

3.0 out of 5 stars A stretch too far, 27 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a relatively easy read, and is quite short, not bad to occupy some time without requiring too much thought. There is a fair amount of technical jargon, to the extent that a glossary is included, though that didn't detract from the narrative for me, though I'm one of those geeky people who lived through the Apollo programme as a schoolboy and soaked this all up back then - it may be offputting to someone new to this. It's really an Apollo 'fan-fiction' novel of an alternative future timeline when the programme wasn't cancelled, when there was a 3rd World War, and there was some incredible Nazi technology to give the few remaining survivors hope. Personally I think the stretch is too big to accept when it comes to 'secret Nazi technology', and jarred with the otherwise meticulous attention to technical detail. If Dr Who had come strolling across the moon with sonic screwdriver in hand I wouldn't have been surprised.

After a few days, so far so good. They are very light on the face (having used
other high quality eye masks for some years now) and in the current warm weather
that works very well. No stains on the pillow either from any dye, and certainly
keep out all the light I want kept out - in short, good product, recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars For that this is perfect and the 1, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb.....I only wanted it for carrying water on hot days and maybe keys, phone and wallet. For that this is perfect and the 1.5l capacity is enough for me. It won't allow you to carry anything else, so if you need more then get a larger backpack. No chest strap, just the two shoulder straps but I find it doesn't move more than a cm or two, and on runs up to 13miles in the heat I've had no chafing. The bite valve is great, no drips and no airlocks. Tip would be to fill the reservoir and edit her refrigerate or even drop ice cubes in (the wide opening to fill allows lots of room) in before you set out. Very Glad I bought this

5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfactory, 20 July 2014

Not quite equivalent to the OS 1:25000, but as thee is no equivalent it's as good as it gets so while I would prefer the greater detail that the OS maps provide, this will do. It's not as bad as the generally not much use other than for area detail OS 1:50000 if that helps

Used this to replace a solid white one.....in comparison this is superior, shows off the phones neat design, the controls are much more useable, and it's still high protection for someone like me who keeps the phone in back pockets, man bags, etc.
