4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good but falls short, 9 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Microsoft Band Large (Accessory)
First glance it looks reasonably smaller than I'd thought and though the straight square face looks much better worn upside down it does get in the way if using a keyboard at work. Really that is my only gripe though as I'm wearing it all day is a fairly important one. Battery lasts a few days on one one charge so far and health info as well as heart rate is pretty accurate. Notifications are good though it needs some forethought in organising your app notifications on your phone. One other important point is that while the ms health app is avaliable on my nexus 4 it wasn't in my galaxy note pro 12.2 which would suck if you only had a tablet and not a pc or phone as well.

Few other gripes actually:

The strap is a hard matt black rubber and picks up stains really easily
The screen truly does scratch very very easily
The clasp fits well though the locking pins look weak and I can see this breaking off in my sleep some night in the not too distant future with no way of replacing it.

Microsoft created a great product here but with a little more time and thought they could have created an iWatch killer and now they're on the back foot again. Most people were in 'wait and see' mode with wearables. Especially at apples price point so ms missed an opportunity here to steal the show even if it had been a bit late. With Windows 10 this really could have put them back on on the map though overall I am pleased with it it's definitely not a dress watch.

If you're looking for overall health monitoring with notifications thrown in its better than most others out there but be prepared to put in a little work to get it set up and bear in mind the GPS eats battery life. The alarm also had to be set each night as does sleep mode (yes it works automatically but not fully).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I've ever read, 4 Jun. 2015

One of the best books I've ever read. Sobering, clear, well written and a complete eye opener. Read this alongside his other works - "The liberated man" and "The myth of male power". If you're a bloke and haven't read this then your walking around with a blindfold on.

Works well in my DX7400 but can be really temperamental when reinstalled. Took me over an hour last time just to get it to recognize the cartridges. It does say they have a limited usage. UPDATE - stopped working after about 6 months.

Awesome stuff, reattached a cheap guitar neck with this and it hasn't budged an inch since. Just use some clamps to hold it down and leave it overnight - next day it will be joined solid.

Didn't work on the kind of plastic I was using( Expensive headphones - PX5's from Turtle beach) so can't comment. Be sure to check the kinds of plastic that it will and won't mend before buying.

I've actually bought this twice now and only sold it previously because I was out of work. I can't recommend it enough because of its tough construction. you'll never need to worry about getting a lobotomy because of poor construction.

Great cheap watch, does everything I need and doesn't cost £700, nor do I have to charge it every night nor talk to it like some David Hasslehoff fanboy twat.

I rub this all over myself and then dance in front of the mirror in my cowboy hat & boots. There's just enough to cover me head to toe in 2 pots. It's also good for other things such as greasing my engine parts and keeping my exhaust from rusting.
