Q2 Wi-Fi Internet Radio with Full Motion Tip and Tilt Control - Green
Q2 Wi-Fi Internet Radio with Full Motion Tip and Tilt Control - Green

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 28 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this product very much. The concept of a 4 inch cube with minimalist controls is fab, and the bright colours are cheerful. The 4 preconfigured radio channels are selected by turning the radio onto each side, perfect. It takes a minute to tune into WIFI and radio channel on switch on.The tip up and down volume control works fine too. Sound quality is very good. You need a PC to configure the channels, and a decent WIFI signal, but very portable, and great in the bathroom. hobby room, or any where your WIFI reaches..

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for glider pilots, 8 Feb. 2013

Very small and straightforward to use. Limited 400ml capacity, but better than a plastic bag leaking in the cockpit. Easy to slip in a pocket ready for unexpected emergencies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good accessory for Lumix G5 camera, 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This works well with my Panasonic Lumix G5 camera. Copes with burst mode and video just fine.
Pop it into my MacBook Pro and pictures are up in iPhoto in seconds.
Has capacity for more than 1000 shots at 16 megapixel.

Don't pay more than you need to on fancy cables. These do the job. Make sure you get long enough cables for your installation. These are only long enough if the equipment is right next to each other.

This review is from: Kings and Castles (Kindle Edition)
Get a real feel for history. Marc Morris brings the dry ruins to life. Immediately accessible and entertaining while bringing clarity to a subject I found hard at school but am now fascinated by.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of functionality in the standard package at a good price, 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to take pictures of my new grandaughter and have been very pleased with the whole package.
The camera is small and light in weight, but easy to grip and hold in one hand.
The folding LCD display is great when taking pictures from funny angles.
There are loads of automatic and manual options which are fun to experiment with.
Set it to auto and it just takes good pictures with no fuss.
I particularly like burst mode for capturing just the right expression when your subject isn't blinking or pulling a face.
The bright electronic viewfinder is excellent when high ambient light makes the lcd screen difficult to see.
I also much appreciate the simple diopter adjustment on the viewfinder which accomodates for my short sight.
You need to buy a memory card separately. Go for the biggest fastest you can afford - e.g.SANDISK Extreme Pro 16GB.
Finally I did a good deal of research against other brands and of the standard lenses.
I have found the standard Panasonic H-FS014042 14-42 is perfectly good for most purposes from landscapes to portraits, and indoor and out in varying light levels.
This package with the standard 14-42 lens is very good value for money.
Decisive factors for me are the electronic viewfinder with diopter adjustment, good quality standard zoom lens, in a value for money package.

This is a nice small DVD player with an excellent picture quality on an HD TV.
Good value.
Note there is no hdmi cable in the box so buy separately.

4.0 out of 5 stars NAS at home, 22 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Noise: This does have a fan but I find it is generally very quiet and no problem on my desk in front of me.
Automatic power up and down: generally this works. When the last laptop on the network is closed down, the NAS powers down, and generally it restarts when we reboot in the morning. Occassionally it fails to restart automatically but cycling the power switch soon solves that.
Admin aplication: The admin tool works but takes a bit of trial and error, for instance setting up shares, as the manual is limited. It is probably best to assign a fixed IP address on your router. Then you can happily map a Windows network drive to the ip address, and don't necessarily need the NAS Navigator application which is blocked by the firewall on my work laptop.
Back up application: The supplied back up application works but I am not yet sure if it is any better than a DOS batch file and xcopy. There is also the RichCopy tool free from Microsoft that is worth investigating. I think I prefer to have straight file copy back ups rather than compressed files. The compressed files seem to be more suitable for spreading a backup across cdroms, or dvd.
RAID: This is the main reason for buying. I have configured the two discs to be mirrored, and I am relying on this to store my family photo album and music. I will also do a separate back up to another USB drive that can be connected direct to the NAS.
Music: I have found that Windows Media Player works very well. No trouble including NAS folders in the library. I-Player is a bit more complicated.
Overall: I am very pleased with this NAS. It provides a secure mirrored network storage that we can all access off the home LAN for a reasonable price. It is reasonably easy to set up if you have a bit of home pc knowledge.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good in parts, 3 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reasonable price, but... I was looking unsuccessfully for a replacement for a Kenwood Chef goblet attachment, and bought a James Martin Wahl blender to start. This was very good except that the GLASS goblet cracked when filled with hot soup. The glass goblet was also very heavy and the blade part at the base was not removable making it hard to clean and not diswaherable. So I got a refund and bought the Kenwood blender instead. On the plus side the Kenwood has a light weight plastic goblet with a removable blade base, so it is easy to clean. However something about the design of the blades mean that while it works ok on very liquid food, it doesn't work with heavy sticky food causing the motor to overheat and smoke. So still looking for the perfect blender at a reasonable price. Maybe you just have to spend £50-£100 on a real one.
