3.0 out of 5 stars Customer service is first class but..., 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The computer arrived very quickly and was easy to set up. Compared to my previous P4 it was very quick.
My only complaint is that the description on Amazon said that it has a 2GB graphics card -

"Graphics Card:description: AMD Radeon HD8570D
Graphics card RAM size: 2048Mb"

but it doesn't - it has "hypermemory" that uses system memory. Google hypermemory if, like me, you don't know what it is.
I ran Piriform's Speccy programme and it said:- 768MB ATI AMD Radeon HD8570D

I contacted CSL about this; their customer service is very good but only led me to Google's explanation of hypermemory.
Unless you are a bit "techy" and already know what hypermemory is, you will probably feel as I do that the description is misleading.

Having said all that I am pleased with the computer for the price and it does all that I ask of it. I am not into gaming so my demands are not great. If you are into heavy gaming I would say that this is not the computer for you as you would have to reduce your settings to make the games work with these graphics. (See Google.)

5.0 out of 5 stars It does the job!, 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having used it for a while I can say that it has done a very good job. Just remember to hold it lightly against the skin or it will soon wear the abrasive out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A loooong but enjoyable read., 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vanity Fair (Kindle Edition)
If I'd seen this in its book form I probably would not have read it as it is a very lengthy read.
I'm glad I did read it though and would put it in my top ten best reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job well., 2 Feb 2014

I could have got a slightly cheaper one but preferred to go with a well known brand and the extra security of buying from Amazon knowing that if there was a problem it would be sorted to my satisfaction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fits my Fujifilm HS50EXR in perfectly., 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My Fujifilm HS50EXR fits in perfectly and is well padded.
The quality is very good - as you'd expect from Lowepro - and there is room for the strap to nestle on the top to facilitate quick access.
The rainproof cover is a plus - when you've figured out where it is hiding!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very accurately described, 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted this to take my Finepix HS50XR but it was too small by about an inch.
It was not very well made either so I returned it and got a full refund - so full marks for that.
I then ordered a Lowepro Toploader Zoom 50 AW - Black and it is perfect for the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for wildlife photography., 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this because of its zoom. It is not as quick at focusing as I expected but is still acceptable. The build quality is good. The photos are clear. The larger sensor is what made me go for this rather than a similar sized zoom from another maker.
I had a problem initially because the camera was described as "New" but it obviously wasn't. The battery had already been charged up fully and there were fingermarks and dust on the lens and zoom body.
Amazon soon sorted this out to my satisfaction.
All I need now is some decent weather!

5.0 out of 5 stars Used for my dog, 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My dog has a heart murmur so I got one of these and learned how to use it so that I can monitor and react to any changes.
It works well but the earbuds could be a bit more comfortable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a very good read., 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just cannot agree with her ideas - they run counter to wolf behaviour that I have seen. Not for me!
