Philips HDT8520 500GB PVR Freeview HD Digital Terrestrial Recorder (discontinued by manufacturer)

1.0 out of 5 stars Philips HDT8520 DVD recorder, 3 Nov 2013
I bought this at a reduced price from Curry's about 3 years ago. It looks smart and well built but like many reviewers have found the software to be full of bugs and difficult to use. When it updates the programme guide a white surround light comes on which is annoying. I've had to reformat the hard disc twice because the unit froze and so lost all my recordings. Now it only finds about 40 channels (the TV with built in Freeview finds about 150). It does not find BBC Wales (1, 2, News or Parliamentary) even though we live less than 10 miles in direct line to Wenvoe on updating. If any channels it does find are selected from the programme guide it turns the TV (an LG) off and I have to change inputs on the TV. I guess this is no longer manufactured, but if you see it advertised or sold anywhere, don't buy it. Because of the problems I've rarely used it. Junk!

5.0 out of 5 stars Neewer 62Mm 3-Pc Filter Kit Polarizing+Uv+Fld For Any 62Mm Camera Lens!, 16 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used these filters in various sizes from 47mm, 52mm and 58mm and they work fine on Lumix FZ38 and FZ45 and Nikon D5100 SLR. The FLD filter is amazing for fluorescent light but take it off in daylight or tungsten or you'll get a pink tinge to your shots. The local sports hall where I take lots of shots and videos has fluorescent lights with yellow walls and is a white balance nightmare but using the FLD gives a more natural colour. At the price just for the UV (which I fit on all my lenses) for protection these are a bargain. The polarizer and FLD are a bonus. They come in a neat case with separators. Highly recommend although the professional would find something amiss, for amateurs they are perfect.

Lost my original but this looks and works identically to Neewer battery pack cable for my Nikon D5100. Took about 2 weeks to come from USA but that was no problem to me.

Looks to be a robust reliable product. Everything fits neatly and it is very light. Have used USB port to charge i-pad and camera and it works well. Fits into UK sockets neatly.

Don't know longer term but will be taking it on holiday to India soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars NEEWER MC-DC2 Remote Shutter Release Cord for Nikon D90 D5000, 20 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used straight out of the box on my Nikon D5100 with no problems. Appears well made and comparable to Nikon original. Half press the button and it auto-focusses, full press and shutter is released. Haven't worked out the full forward push to keep the shutter open.for long exposure. The instructions are basic but not really needed. About 1 meter of cable. For just a few pounds this is well worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bestdealusa Neewer 0.45X 52Mm Wide Angle Lens With Macro, 20 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ideal to increase angle of lens. Used on a 18mm to 50mm Nikon lens and a Lumix FZ45 and on both there is some vignetting at 18mm which is normal for many wide angle lenses but above 25mm is fine. Increases width effectively when used indoors Also if zoomed in there is slight blurring at the edges at full zoom, For outdoor portraits this is quite a nice softening effect though. To answer critics of this, why would you use a wide angle lens if you're going to zoom in? The macro lens is quite good for getting in really close. Housing is all metal and is well made. At the price it is a fun lens and useful to have in your kit.

These work well and are a lot less expensive compared to Apple originals. The little plastic fitting to allow attachment is loose on a Kindle but otherwise pleased.

Looks cheap and doesn't come with a bag like the original. However it works up to about 4 metres which is slightly less than the genuine NIkon but at less than 3 it's a good buy as a spare.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought one of these from another supplier on Amazon and then found a few days later that I could buy a pack of 5 identical lens cap holders for less than half the price. These are a good idea and firmly stick to the lens cap if it has a smooth surface. Elastic fits snugly around the lens so can remain with the lens when it 's removed.

Quite happy with this until I spotted a pack of 5 for less than the price of this one a few days later on Amazon. Works well and firmly sticks to lens cap with elasticated strap to fit around lens. So bought 10 of the others from another seller and share with friends for the same price.
