4.0 out of 5 stars Flip MinoHD video camcorder, 21 Mar. 2009
Having looked around at a number of video cameras, it seemed that Flip Mino was the current market leader in the mini camcorder category. Checking it out I saw that they had just released an HD model, the Flip MinoHD. More expensive, but worth the try and it is a mixtuire of simplicity and pure excellence. It is pocket friendly, comes only in black (unless you go to their US site and get one of the jazzy options there but the black is classy). Extremely simple to use and you can video for an hour at 1,280x720 resolution on its 4GB built in memory. The battery life on mine has lasted this hour with ease, plus numerous views, so I can confirm it lasts at least 2 hours which is fine for most purposes. The USB connector flips up and out (hence the name) so easy to connect to your laptop, download and charge but still leave room for other items needing USB access.

Only down side I can see is that the screen is perhaps a little small to watch on, so best to plug it straight into your HD TV, or your laptop to watch. The video quality is great for something this size, bigger will be better, but my Mino can stay with me like a mobile phone. Which brings me to one fun point, you can walk around with it as if a mobile phone, people think you are listening to someone, yet you can discretely video, which means some natural and unexpected results...

1.0 out of 5 stars A very poor kettls, 10 Aug. 2007
My parents bought this kettle with a year guarantee. It simply stopped working a couple of months outside the guarantee for no apparent reason. On calling Russell Hobbs Customer Services and explaining the problem the only advice given was to try to descale it, but to no avail. Basically they have had to throw it away and have purchased a Stainless steel Frigidaire kettle similar design, at less than half the price and it works fine. One has to question whether there is the quality there once was with Russell Hobbs. They have lost a loyal cutomer.

4.0 out of 5 stars A showcase for British music with the best of international, 12 Feb. 2002
The variety and diversity on this album makes it the perfect compilation album, from the slow and melodical Dido - Thank you to the classic Fatboy Slim - Weapon of Choice, via Coldplay - Trouble and Travis - Side, and the girls Kylie's Cant Get YOu out of my head, Geri's Its raining Men and Nelly - I'm like a bird, this album has everything to spark up a dull day, and keep you going all night!
