5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good buy: quality is great, and, most importantly, it does what it is supposed to do. No matter how hard you hit the bag, it does not keel over. Simple to fill with water, and easy to put together - despite the funny English instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent scale, 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gives a stable reading, unlike most other scales I have used in the past. Setup was really simple. Design-wise, scale could improve if the metal 'probes' would be the same shape as the scale itself, rather than circular; but I knew that before I bought the scale.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been much better, 10 Jan 2011
Lost mine quite quickly, as one need to take off the case when taking a photo (ok, I know that is not a valid excuse). However, if the back of the case could also be opened, it would be possible to see the screen - and take a picture - without having to remove the camera from the case. Simple. Would buy it again if that were the case ....

4.0 out of 5 stars Logitech M505 - good mouse for a good price, 10 Jan 2011
Had before the M505 a more expensive Logitech VX-Nano cordless mouse - that is, until it stopped responding after falling off a cupboard. Since I never used any of the additional VX-Nano (programmable) buttons, I decided to settle for a less expensive one. Proved to be an okay choice, but one thing was slightly disappointing: the mouse moves a lot less smoothly over any surface. Got used to it now, however ... not ideal, but not a show stopper. Mini USB dongle is a life saver, as Sony put all USB slots stubbornly on the right-hand front side of my Vaio - are all Japanese Vaio designers left-handed??

5.0 out of 5 stars A rare gem, 23 April 2009
The Panasonic LX3 comes out consistently as a 'winner' in even the most serious tests and reviews, globally. However, with many years of experience with the disappointing LX1 in mind (extremely noisy sensor), I was sceptical at first. Hence, I was more favourably predisposed towards the similarly priced Canon G10.

Three considerations made me choose in favour of the LX3, however: portability, the beautiful LEICA wide-angle lens and the reported mediocre low light performance of the G10. It turned out to be a good choice. The camera slips more or less easily in your pocket, and the pictures are simply stunning - even in very low light conditions.

From amateur ('just-press-the-button' in the Intelligent Auto setting) to semi-professional (full manual control), most will find it easy to use this little gem.

One word of caution: you won't get the 'normal' zoom. If you want that, please consider buying something else ... However, if you are not scared of embracing a creative challenge, this incredibly light sensitive wide-angle lens will soon make you forget about a potent zoom.

For me, it brought the fun back into taking pictures, and I was delighted to hear people again ask me what camera I was using upon seeing my pictures - something last witnessed when still shooting on film with my LEICA camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and silent, 2 April 2009
A good SATA drive to replace the smaller 80mb PS3 drive with. Takes about 15 minutes to perform the operation. Low power consumption implies low heat generation, was scared to put in a 7200 rpm. Quick enough to play HD video flawlessly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wrong description, this is a 250mb drive!, 2 April 2009
Perfect replacement for the 80mb drive in my PS3. Took me 15 minutes to swap the drives. SATA implies good throughput; fast enough for HD quality video.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me., 2 April 2009
Did not manage to apply any of them correctly; highly frustrating. Bought a rigid one instead through e-Bay from Hong Kong. Best choice possible.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good cable, but slightly loose fit, 2 April 2009
Not expensive, yet sturdy. Noticed that 'fit' in PS3 is a bit wobbly. No real problem if the PS3 is stationary.

Does what it is supposed to do, without having to fork out more money. Technically sound.
