5.0 out of 5 stars A great hat!, 14 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great hat! Keeps the rain off my head, the sun out of my eyes and keeps my ears warm. The ear flaps can be folded up inside if they're not needed and the visor can be pulled up or pushed down and stays where I put it. Does everything I need from a hat...fits perfectly too!

1.0 out of 5 stars Completely useless on my 64-bit windows 7 Pro installatio, 14 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Completely useless on my 64-bit windows 7 Pro installation. I installed the drivers, no issues - the new tuner device appeares in device manager as expected. Installed the TotalMedia software supplied with it but the software doesn't recognise the tuner at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Frustrating Exercise in Button Mashing, 4 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Tomb Raider (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
A disappointing game. Given it two stars instead of one because it looks nice. Lara looks good and moves well and the scenery is very well done but...and it's a big but, the controls on the PC version at least are absolutely awful. The game is little more than a series of cut scenes interspersed with incredibly annoying and frankly frustrating button mashing exercises. There's no leeway at all, you press the indicated button at exactly the right time for however long the developer decided you will in the exact sequence the developer dreamed up or Lara dies and you're back at a checkpoint to try again...and again and again.

This sort of button mashing nonsense was promptly consigned to the waste bin back in the 80's when it first started. Seeing it rearing its ugly head again now shows a total lack of common sense by the developers...things are consigned to history for a reason...

1.0 out of 5 stars Programming this thing to record is a frustrating hit and miss exercise, 1 Oct. 2014
Mine's hopeless. The thing has defeated almost every attempt to get it to record anything. It's actually recorded on one occasion only. Does not record from a program set using the incredibly slow to update EPG most of the time, does not wake up from standby most of the time. If I program it to do both (wake up on one timer and record on another), it's a toss up whether it'll wake up at all, expecting it to wake up AND record seems to be too much of a stretch.
It seems to use one error message for everything, leaving you totally in the dark. It claims settings have been changed when they either haven't (based on the lack of recordings) or simply fails to give you any information to explain why things go wrong when they inevitably do.
The interface is clunky and awkward. It's totally unforgiving...everything has to be done in exactly the right order but it gives you no clue what that order might be. Just pressing the record button while watching something seems to work...programming it to record is a frustrating hit and miss exercise.
Even worse, it kills the antenna signal. Turn the unit off and the signal dies completely, put it on standby and 50% of the time the signal gets so faint the TV gives up on it.
I'll keep persevering with it but so far it's been a complete waste of my time. Not impressed at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little cap, 20 Sept. 2014
Great little cap. Keeps the glare out of your eyes when it's sunny and helps keep the rain off your glasses when the weather returns to normal. The lack of a logo on the front means I'm not running around advertising someone else's product and paying for the privilege of doing so. It even folds nicely into a relative small package that you can put in your pocket if you're somewhere you don't want to wear it.
Has a velcro fastening on the strap to adjust the size, I was a bit concerned about that but really, how often does your head change size?

5.0 out of 5 stars It's nice and peaceful here now, 20 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With the seemingly never ending plague of nuisance callers these days, every home should have one of these. It's nice and peaceful here now, after just a couple of weeks of use and with it's memory of 1200 numbers, it should cope with many years worth of those rampant pests.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great. It works really well, 20 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great. It works really well, either hanging inside a pocket or on a loop around the neck. Setting up was easy enough, though I used a GPS device to measure a large distance rather than relying on a few steps.
The 7-day memory is a godsend. I like to keep track of walking progress on a spreadsheet (only way to avoid dropping back into lazy habits) and forgetting to add details occasionally is no problem with this little device - it remembers the last 7 days worth of data.
Battery looks easy enough to replace. Not much more to say about it really, it does exactly what I hoped...and more.

Wonderful. My feet have never been so comfortable...or so dry. If you walk long distances, you owe it to your feet to give them a pair of these!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fits nicely, carries LOTS, 20 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for carrying a DSLR with a few filters, spare lens or two and spare batteries, etc. It spreads the weight over both shoulders so you don't get that strap cutting into you that heavy bags can cause.

The lower pockets are huge; large enough to carry my DLSR fitted with a 50mm prime lens plus its hood. The other large pocket could carry spare lenses or even a small water bottle (about 750ml). Behind those large external pockets are equally large pockets that you can only really fit flat things in, things like maps and other documents, for instance. Above these pockets, there are loops that you can attach your camera strap, etc. to if you like that extra bit of security.

There's an internal pocket with a zip for your wallet and the top half of the vest is festooned with smaller pockets, each of which has a velcro flap, for batteries, filters, etc. Both shoulders have epaulettes which are fastened both with velcro and a press-stud and there's a huge stretchable pocket on the back for...something!

As far as sizing goes, I usually take a medium and so I opted for a medium with this vest and it fits perfectly. It seems to be made of a really tough material and the stitching looks fine to me so it should last. It's also not in the least bit waterproof so if you're going out in the rain and you have a valuable camera in the pocket, you'll need something to cover it.

Interestingly, the chest and stomach straps for my backpack fit between the pockets on this vest so it's quite easy to use both together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad bulb but the light is harsh and directional, 20 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a bad bulb but the light is harsh and directional, due to the LED's being behind clear glass and it just isn't very bright.
