4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy versatile product., 3 Aug 2012

This is a very good product meant to be used in places where a regular tripod would not work. I can't understand why some people think this can be used as a solid tripod or that it can support a SLR camera. It is not meant for that!

Obviously not a top-class professional product but still very good quality. More than adequate for my purposes. The kit contains a wide variety of tools to make most jobs a breeze.

1.0 out of 5 stars Didnt work, 3 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivered next day thanks to Amazon unfortunately unit behaved eratically constantly sending '////////////////////////////////' to the computer until the receiver was unplugged. Touchpad only scrolls but none of the keys work, neither did the backlight. Now I have nothing for my presentation tomorrow. That will teach me to order stuff last minuite!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good but spooked by packaging, 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was not aware that 'frustration free' packaging meant that the card came unsealed in a used looking plastic box. However it has worked perfectly so my fears were not realised.

Very good performing card, can take 1080p video with stereo sound no problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect., 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a find point and shoot camera particularly for taking those handheld no-flash shots which the sensitive sensor coupled with optical image stabilisation make really easy. Lovely results but make sure to turn OFF the motion sensor anti-blur as the high iso that it uses spoils images. I thought the camera was broken until I turned this off.

There are a number of features that makes this camera stand out:

This is the only waterproof rugged camera I know of that does 1080p video with stereo sound.
The battery/card door is on the side so can still be operated while it is on a tripod.

A case is also a must because the lens is allways exposed and gets fingered easily.

The only reason for not giving 5 stars is that you can hear the camera focusing in the videos.

3.0 out of 5 stars Spoiled by thoughtless design, 27 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This brush looks well made but has a few design flaws which make it very difficult to use:

1 - The on-off is very difficult to use with wet hands as it has little grip. Your hands will be wet.
2 - Rotation of the hose causes the on-off to operate by itself randomly increasing or decreasing flow.
3 - The detergent holder cover leaks detergent. Some sort of seal is needed.

Pity as its such a well made brush.

Lucky to find this Samsung RAM which is identical to the other 4GB stick that came with my laptop. Perfect! Laptop flies now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound once used properly, 2 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Every product in the world has advantages and disadvantages and there is no perfect product for anybody.

These headphones are of the in ear sealed type. They have a much lower frequency response that regular earbuds and even the large over the ear type and so sound exceptional. However it is critical that an airtight seal is formed between the driver and your ear canal. Without this seal, the bass tones fall away to the point where they are inaudible. This is why 3 different sizes of rubber seal are supplied. If you want to utilise the full capabilities of these headphones, spending some time ensuring an airtight seal is vital.

The over ear clip has an advantage over non-clip models because the clip adds one extra level of security to keep the driver in the ear with a proper seal.

Every one has different requirements but in my opinion the sound quality is well worth the effort required to secure an airtight seal and occasionally push the drivers back in as they slip out.

I bought these to replace the stock headphones that came with my new iphone and have not been disappointed.

This is a steal at this price and I am considering buying a few extra pairs for backup.

N.B. The key specification in selecting a pair of headphones is the frequency range, in this case 6 - 23000 Hz. I have learnt that for a good bass response, a low end of less than 10 Hz is essential. As this specification is rarely mentioned on product pages (unfortunately including Amazon) make sure you check this spec before buying any headphones ever. It may be worth going into a shop to read the information on the boxes. You will be amazed how many pairs of expensive `premium' headphones do not satisfy this criteria.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good!, 13 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Given the low price, I ordered two of these cables to double my chances of having a working one shipped to me. Surprise surprise both the cables work beautifully. In addition, they are very well made and of good quality materials. They do not feel cheap in the slightest and feel just like the original cable I got with my iphone. Now I have a cable for the living room, the office and a spare to carry around in my bag.
