5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding..., 19 Aug. 2010
Having tried three other battery power 'backups', and found them lacking in power and/or reliability, I ordered the Powerbee Power Bank and have been delighted with it!

Due to illness, I'm in and out of hospital on a regular basis and need something to keep my iPhone and iPad 3G charged, and my mind active. The Powebee has been ideal. It's simple to charge and once powered, can keep the 2 Apple products going for quite some time. I love the fact it comes with cables and connections for all sorts of kit, and a handy bag to keep them, plus the Powerbee in. One of their rivals, purchased and now gathering dust, included just one connector (Apple) and one alone... No bag either! Another power 'backup' - also no longer used, had only connectors for popular phones, and when needed, for my Wife's LG, didn't include one.

I wasted money on the other power supplies, totalling more than three times the cost of the Powerbee. Never again! I think I'll stick with this and am tempted to check out other products in their range. Speedy delivery too!

5.0 out of 5 stars What can I say..., 31 Oct. 2009
...it's Dickens! A fresh twist on an old (literally) classic. Still brings back feelings of fond childhood Christmases and for me, the play I saw in York when I was young. Bags of atmosphere, smashing illustrations and a message for us all as we approach the Festive period!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Upgrade..., 25 Oct. 2009
Not much to say except it just gets on with the job, in a faster, more efficient and space friendly way. We have 2 iMac 24s and 2 Macbooks - and so far have found no problems. Everything runs, including Aperture 2.14, Photoshop CS2/CS4 and MS Word + a whole variety of other software. Probably the only thing that won't work will be Age of Empires III, but then it wouldn't with the older version of Leopard. No great loss really.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy on the pocket - in both senses of the phrase..., 24 July 2009
Amazing value for money and so small for what it offers. Image quality is excellent for a non HD cam and the anti shake mechanism works a treat.

I was a little dubious about how it would get on with replay/editing on the Mac OS. Panasonic UK say very little in their publicity material (except the supplied software is Windows only), but after a bit of digging around on the Net, I found claims you could edit with iMovie - and they're right; plays and edits perfectly!

I'm delighted with this camcorder and wishing for something different, ordered mine in the very smart looking, Champagne finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous..., 16 July 2009
I must confess to being a bit of a Crumpler fan but like most of the company's products, this oozes quality. Lovely leather, great fit and stylish design, make it a top notch bargain!

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems okay..., 9 April 2009
Bought as a present but seems a decent enough book. Most areas seem well covered and it's written in the familiar, "...For Dummies" style. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars No book, no idea..., 9 April 2009
The seller let me down badly. No book, no replies to emails. Had to ask Amazon for a refund. The book I'm told, is excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars First Class, 25 Oct. 2008
Not sure about upgrading, but if you don't own a 1G, check this new version out! It's fabulous.

It's got a real quality feel to it - great build and that classy look of a well designed pice of kit. It's fun to use and easy to setup. Emails, the WWW, games, Contacts etc are all at your finger tip(s). Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab!, 21 Nov. 2007
Bought this to use alongside a full (of just music) 30GB 5G iPod and think the new model's a big upgrade. Love the new finish (mine's Silver), which doesn't scratch as easily as the 5G. Looks and feels very classy...

Prior to the firmware update, it was a tad sluggish, but it runs beautifully now with V1.0.2 and features are much improved. Video out is now available and it works with all the old 5G accessories, ie Apple HiFi, chargers, cables, Docks etc. I like Coverflow but admit to rarely using it. Other search features are much improved. Sound quality is a little better than before, ie great for what it is. Works nicely in the Car too!

Prices compare very well with rivals such as those from Creative Labs etc. 160GB for around £200? Bargain!

5.0 out of 5 stars A View from the 'Other' Side..., 26 Aug. 2007
Very well written and a good introduction to the work of the author. Sven doesn't get bogged down in too much historical detail, but manages to paint a gritty image of life as a German 'tanker'. Nice to read something told from a different perspective. Made me want to go and buy more Hassel books - which I did!
