5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 25 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent protector which fits the Galaxy Tab2 10.1 well. Highly recommended!

The quality is exceptional and I think it will stand up to some pretty tough usage as it took plenty of abuse when I was trying to apply it and had to keep squueezing out air bubbles with a credit card and removing dust spots with sticky tape (my fault not the products! To avoid the same; clean, clean, clean and clean again before applying)

I've got all but a couple of dust spots out and it looks and works great.

Delivery was super-fast and much quicker than the estimate given at the time of order. Great product and great service...

4.0 out of 5 stars Beats the kindle hands down for design and function!, 10 Jan 2012
When I recieved a kindle keyboard 3G Kindle Keyboard 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 3G Works Globally, 6" E Ink Display as a gift I loved that I could input text directly instead of having to use a four-way selector as I would with the new kindle wifi, but I still found the experience 'clunky' and very dated. I also found having to zoom and move when reading pdf's a real chore and in the end sent it back.

As a replacement I ordered the new Sony PRS-T1 Sony PRS-T1 Wi-Fi eBook Reader With Superior Paper Like Display Colour BLACK; WOW! what a difference, a slick, well thought out and much more user friendly experience. The touch screen is intuitive, responsive and a real pleasure when compared to either of the kindles. The touch keyboard is actually faster and more responsive than the real keyboard on the kindle and the whole experience is just so much more satisfying.

The down side and the reason for only 4 stars out of 5 is that it doesn't accept the Amazon *.AWZ or *.mobi formats when they are secured using DRM which makes it a little more difficult to get Amazon books on than a kindle, but this is changing all the time and there are alternative stores and other ways around it. (this also applies the other way round too; you can't read *.epub documents on kindles)

In summary, an amazing piece of technology and leaps and bounds ahead of the kindles but make sure you know what ebooks are compatible before you buy and you won't be disappointed.

**EDIT**

Still really happy with this item after daily use for a couple of months.

I disagree with other reviews because:

YOU CAN drag & drop ebooks straight onto the reader in My Computer or Windows Expolrer etc.

If you don't like the bundled Sony Software you can always download Calibre completely free ([...]) which allows all of the copying, moving, backing-up and file conversion functions you are ever likely to need for managing eBooks.

The Sony Store isn't up & running yet but why bother? You can get eBooks from Waterstones, WH Smith, Kobo-Store and plenty of others without any hassle.

There have been several updates to the software in the past few months which shows Sony are contsantly improving thier product to the benfit of the user and I don't recall that with my clunky kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only 40 pages in and has had me in stitches so far..., 23 Oct 2009
This is a very entertaining account of one man's rediscovery of fishing. He's a very funny writer and his easy going style makes it a pleasure to read. His recollections of childhood, descriptions of of pouring over adverts, nervously ordering gear hoping not to be exposed as a complete novice, and the childlike excitement of waiting for his tackle struck plenty of chords. He has a wicked sense of humour and his scrutiny of various topics will have you laughing out loud. The Charley-merde-tete line was a corker and is indicative of just how sharp Shelton is.

He manages top capture the magic of fishing on a personal level and distil it into a very entertaining and honest account. Can't wait for his next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mp3 at an excellent price. Highy recommended, 13 Dec 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got the sansa m240 as a replacement for my old mp3 player which I had to return to the retailer as faulty after 3 months and it's excellent. Its feels a much better quality and is far easier to use than other players in the same price range.

I have given it 5* as it preforms superbly. I haven't yet encountered any problems with it reordering my music as mentioned in other reviews. I have about 14 albums stored on it and have been able to play music by album, title and artist without any problems.

Highly recommended for anybody after a good looking, well made and easy to use mp3 player.
