These markers are a pain in the neck to use. You have to shake them for ages then press the nib down for ages to get the ink to flow. By the time you've done that you have forgotten what you wanted to write - will be returning them

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all, 16 Feb. 2016

I'm a complete Apple 'tart' but at this price I thought I'd give it a go, and I have to say I'm quite impressed, it's not mega powerful and it can take a while to download videos, but it's fine for popping into a handbag and having connectivity 'on the go'. Love the Amazon music feature and the lyrics - karaoke moment!

Arrived quickly, very easy to set up, very quiet when in use. Uses firewire or USB cable, which are both suppled. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Third Time Lucky, 2 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all I must say that I LOVE my Kindle PaperWhite. I read a lot but never thought I would buy a Kindle. I have been using my iPad to read book via the Kindle app but the iPad is a little unwieldy at times so I thought about the Kindle.

My initial Kindle wasn't working, the light was broken, the replacement was OK but there was a scratch on the display in the bottom corner. My heart sank, but I got another replacement and this one is great! Perfect for reading on the go or taking on holiday. I am very pleased with my new gadget, the print on the screen really looks like a printed page, it's rather miraculous.

The "official" Kindle leather case is something I highly recommend too, no ugly elastics holding the Kindle in place, very streamlined with the device itself.

All in all, one happy bunny!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fab but better photos would be good, 6 Aug. 2012
Crochet books can be a little bit hit and miss, the cover looks great but inside the projects can be a little strange. Not so with this book, great projects, very up to date and fashionable. My one criticism would be that some of the projects could have better, more detailed photos, the photography is stylish, but I need to see a close up before I commit to spending money and time on a project.
