Joe Topping is a hero. Women want him, men want to be him. So manly.

Hours of fun in the staff room at work thanks to this brilliant book. A few repeated questions and a few errors which prevent me from giving it 5 stars.

Very nice fit.


Ultimate Performance Patella Knee Strap - Pink, One Size
Ultimate Performance Patella Knee Strap - Pink, One Size
Price: £7.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Won't stay in place., 17 May 2015
This support feels fine and does the job when walking, but as soon as I start running, it migrates down by an inch or two where it is completely useless. I think this is partly because of my calves which are pretty skinny, allowing the strap to move down. I wouldn't recommend this strap for those with thin legs.

Great value. I carry two of these as spares and they are pretty much as good as the Olympus original at 1/4 the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Handy case, but..., 19 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use a Gariz leather half-case to carry my OM-D around, but if I'm throwing it in a bag, i want a little bit more protection for the lens and screen. This does the job very well. My only complaint is the value-for-money. It is very expensive for what it is. If it didn't have an Olympus logo on it, this would be less than £5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome cable, 19 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am someone who believes in paying a little bit extra to get the best product I can afford. This is it. The cable oozes quality, the sound is superb, and despite the long length, there is no loss of quality or interference whatsoever. A sound investment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice machine and excellent value, 19 Feb. 2014
In this price range, this is as good as it gets. Puzzled by the other reviews saying it doesn't work with Windows 8.1. For me, it has been a faultless experience so far. Windows 8.1 requires you to spend a little bit of time tailoring the OS to your requirements, but once you've got it set up for the way you want to use your machine, it works really well, especially with a touch screen like this.

The build quality of this machine is decent, the display is clear and bright (though obviously not as amazing as some of the more pricey machines out there). I have previously owned or set up three different Acer laptops, and my only gripe with the brand is that the machines come pre-loaded with loads of bloatware you just don't need, which slows down your machine's boot times and performance. Make sure you spend a bit of time removing these programmes. This is why I only gave 4*. It also comes with McAfee, which is also pointless for most users these days (given Windows 8.1's excellent AV straight out of the box) and I would recommend removing this too, as McAfee is a resource hog.

All in all though, I would recommend this machine. I was setting this one up for a friend, but having seen the machine and the value for money it offers (an i5 processor and decent 23" touchscreen at this price is remarkable), I am now considering purchasing one for my own home office.

Cheap, does the job, solid, what's not to like? Definitely as good as the Panasonic version, at a fraction of the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply the worst book I've ever read, 5 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just awful, awful, clunky prose slapped together in a haphazard and repetitive fashion. What should be a fascinating tale is rendered stultifying by quite possibly the least skillful author ever to draw breath. My copy was recently used to light the fire. Don't bother. If you like tales of true crime and the mafia, read John Follain's "The Last Godfathers" instead of this gibberish.
