5.0 out of 5 stars The best for lab work I've seen, 12 April 2014

After searching the net for two weeks for a measuring jug for home experiments I found this one the best by far, high quality with fine graticules for precise measurements.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice laptop, 6 April 2014
Pros: fairly quick, boots up windows 8 in less than 20 sec's.
size is nice, not ultra thin but thin.
cool, doesn't burn your legs when on your lap, hardly gets warm at all, also no fan noise whirring away when under load.
Cons: battery life extender option, It allows you to set this to desktop mode so after 2 weeks of being left plugged in and switched on it starts, it then only charges the battery between 50% and 75% so the battery is not getting pounded by the charger 24/7, but (and a big BUT) if you unplug the laptop, even for one second it will automatically stop the battery extender mode for another 2 weeks, even if its fully switched off, so if you unplug it to clean/dust once every 2 weeks it will never run battery extender mode?? Leads me to think there's more money to be made with replacement power adapters than batteries (when you move it around whilst plugged in, damaging the lead).
Windows 8, notice how those chocolate bars stay the same price for many years then you notice their not half the bar they used to be, that's windows 8 for you, all the free apps you get are the most annoying pieces of crap you've ever clicked on, user unfriendly or what! Windows 3.1 was a stand alone piece of software, everything you ever needed, windows 8 has most of the apps but they just don't work, plus the charms screen apps don't have menu's you need Harry Potter's wand to save something Double plus DOH!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mr Fix-it, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had this lamp for a month now and I think its great, it looks and feels well made, its fairly bright and the bicycle mount is great. To compare it to one of those 300 lumen lights for less than 4 (amazon search B007B86KLC ) piece of junk, the 7dayshop's light is twice as bright even though it says 110 lumen on the box. Had a bit of a niggle when I first got it, it would change mode and go off when cycling over bumps, but this was sorted when I stripped it down and found the little LED unit at the front which screws in, was loose, firmly put it back together (no tools) and its worked perfectly ever since, apart from I sometimes need to click the switch more than once to get it to come on. OH yeah big click on and off, little click change mode.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible waste of money, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Utter Utter rubbish, even when it works its rubbish, received it today after a 11 day wait, unscrewed the back put a battery in and screwed it back together, noticing how loose the thread was, it had a 1.5 mm wobble on the rear cover (switch) when it was screwed in three whole threads, a very poor fit. Clicked the switch, nothing happened, put the battery in the other way round, still nothing, turned the battery round again and I must have knocked it slightly it came on then went off again, and that's as good as it gets, give it a tap it goes on briefly. Comparing it to my nice and bright 110 lumen bicycle headlight, its only about half as bright, the rubbish LED is only about a quarter of the size of the headlight's LED, in reality its only as bright as one of those 9 LED torches you get in the one-pound shops, and nowhere as reliable. Go for this one instead B0060LPPEO amazon search!

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear glass prism with smooth corners and frosted ends, 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice prism, a little smaller than I thought (2,1,1,1 inch), perfect optical glass, blemish free, in a nice luxury card presentation case with magnetic lock and gold Chinese writing on, but wrapped with sellotape which pulls the red pigment of the box when unwrapping? It took two weeks to dispatch, and then two days to arrive, from Frankfurt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Windows 8, 14 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had read reviews saying office 2003 will work on vista + W7 but not W8, but the odd review said it would work so I bought it. When I put the CD in my new Windows 8 laptop the install box popped up but it wouldn't install (saying I don't have the right or something like that). so I tried to log onto the optical drive, but it would not let me view the files on the CD!. So next I went to run (or the DOS prompt) and typed D:\setup.exe where " D:\ " is the optical drive, and it installed no problem, so far everything seems to work great!

How could they make it for such a price, bought this to go from the front room to the back room, where I keep my HP printer and my Lexmark scanner, printer works alright but with the scanner, it can't see the computer and the computer can't see the scanner!
Had it a month still printing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived fairly quickly, no box, just a bag and the contents wrapped in foam rap. Installed without a problem and worked straight off. Now down to the nitty-gritty the mini CD comes with a user manual, but it's for some proper software looks the same but without the toolbar, the software is so incredibly limited most of the options are grayed out and half the ones left don't work.
The camera has 640 480 @ 30 fps max (will do 320, 200) the frame rate is stuck at 30, the stills are interpolated to 1200 x 1600 by the software (no choice)(this is where the 2 Mega Pixel comes from), which makes the file size 5 Mb each (BMP only), a ten second video 80 Mb, on the up I managed to bag some software that I took a ten second video with, only 157 kb for same quality. At maximum magnification the gap between the 1 mm bars on a ruler was just short of the width of my screen, which means that I would need a bigger screen to make it 500x, on my screen it's only 320x
I went to the software website, to see how much the proper software would cost, but could not find the said software?
Two weeks later: I noticed whilst using Task Manager(Win8)that the software runs all the time? so I used the TM to disable it at start and it still works fine (the running app was using 11% cpu time, dual P4 1.9 GHz).

A little cheap looking and feeling but great for the price. I tested mine with a one kg weight and it said 1004 grams. It does metric or Imperial with a tare facility and auto off, batteries Inc. As it came from the Far-East it took a couple of weeks to arrive, free post.
