5.0 out of 5 stars A chuckle with sadness, 18 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the writings of Sir Terry and this collection adds to that feeling that most of his novels are satirical swipes at the world as we know it. A fitting tribute to a wonderful author and great man in his own words as I suspect no one else could do him justice. Very recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars good kit, 9 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great item, solidly built, anodised metal casing 2 full sized USB ports to connect your products to for charging, a normal USB connection for charging and a little button that when pressed will illuminate 4 small white LED's showing how much charge you have. Simple to use and feels well made, heavy but fairly compact easily small enough to fit in a pocket. Very good kit. Works pretty well with Note S2, Kindle and Kindle Fire. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok its a nice product, well thought out and of decent quality, 9 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Ok its a nice product, well thought out and of decent quality. Fitting a battery is pretty easy and it seems to work pretty well. the trimmer attachment works nicely as do the 3 different sized guards, very effective. The actual microfoil shaving head however is feckless though, I eventually gave up and used a wet razor, even just for cleaning up a small area it seems pretty useless to me. I know it is billed as a beard styler but if you are going to include a shaving attachment it should shave. Other than that a good piece of kit and reasonably priced.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but App could be much better, 3 May 2015
Bought it elsewhere on offer, its an OK device it does measure steps, calories, distance etc and as claimed notifies when you have a call or text (although it doesn't tell you who it is). However the App that links this to your phone is a bit poor, it looses sync and is very light on features, it gives daily totals of steps taken and sleep but thats it no weekly comparisons like the Fitbit or similar. Also if your phone looses sync it can't tell time by itself so it wanders off, or just flat out lies time wise, so as it does this on occaision with no warning on the other hand the battery life is good and its comfortable to wear. So if you want what is basically a wrist mounted pedometer with a few extra bits and bobs its OK but not stunning.

5.0 out of 5 stars I think it will easily accept my 100mm macro lens, 17 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Shocked at the quality of this item for this price. Well made, well padded and quite roomy, will take either my D700 or D800 with a short (ish) lens attached. I think it will easily accept my 100mm macro lens, don't think the old 70-300 will fit and certainly not for my 50-500 but this isn't a surprise and after reading the description of the bag I wouldn't expect it to. Should be able to easily pack a couple of spare lenses, macro tubes and spare batteries into the bag for a days shooting. The strap works well and sits comfortably over the shoulder, swinging the bag to the front is easy, even for a 6 foot 4 lad like myself.
Recommended purchase as a small day bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy one now., 17 April 2015

This review is from: Fire TV Stick (Electronics)
This really is s a great item, set up was simple and fast, although the introduction video was a little annoying. The information comes up fast, BBC iPlayer opens faster on this than anything else, phone, laptop, kindle fire. The remote control feels solid, and works very well, simple controls making it easy to find the button you are after and works well, as does the Android app and the integration with the Kindle fire, simply choose what you want to watch and click the icon to transfer to the TV, you can use the fire to pause, play and use features like X-Ray.
So its fast, compact and very well priced, I realise that it is missing 4OD and the ITV players, this isn't necessarily Amazons fault and I think they will probably become available in the future.
Now watching Body of Proof, no buffering, no lag, good lipsync good picture quality too. One thing that has bugged me about watching series on Prime was that it stopped after each episode, the Fire stick however streams episodes one after the other, very good.
Its all good, slick and easy to use interface makes use a pleasure, with the App installed you can also use your smart phone as a keyboard to enter your log in details. Really can't fault it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent development of the Kindle, 6 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent development of the Kindle, I already own an original Kindle with the keyboard and a Fire so i have missed a generation or two of Kindle development. The Voyage feels tiny after the old keyboard version but the screen is slightly bigger and a lot sharper. I hadn't thought that the back light would make much difference but it does, although I like it low reading at night with the light off is great. Because it is small and light it is very comfortable to hold in one hand, i especially love the forward and back buttons which mean I can turn pages without changing my grip, developed over many hours with the older model. So i now have 3 Kindles, I don't use the fire much for reading but the keyboard version now lives in my desk drawer for lunchtime reading and the Voyage is my main reading device, I haven't read a paper book for 3 years now and with the Voyage its even less likely that I ever will. Excellent product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Usual excellent Lexar quality, 6 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Usual excellent Lexar quality, its quite a small drive, smaller than another Lexar drive I have, very compact and light. The USB connector comes out as you rotate the white body of the stick inside its outer cover, this seems like a very positive action and should stop the annoyance of slide out connectors that make eventually get a bit weaker and become difficult to insert. All in all an excellent USB stick, transfer speed is good too.
