2.0 out of 5 stars You'd Have to be Very Gifted!, 13 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Undoubtedly a good text book, but misleadingly described as suitable for the amateur. You would have to be gifted indeed to follow all the derivations. I think each chapter would have benefited from a qualitative para or two explaining the key concepts.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and Pricey, 13 Sep 2014
Disappointing performance. Many teeth lost within minutes of trying to cut soft brick and mortar. The Silverline at a fraction of the cost completed the job with no teeth lost at all. Not good and pricey.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good, but Not to Sit for Hours, 13 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's real appeal is its incredible lightness and compactness. Better than trying to sit on the grass completely unsupported. If you have the patience to adjust the side straps properly it can be surprisingly good. My tip is adjust them so they look far too short; you'll be surprised how much support you get.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK for Limited Use, 13 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overall quite pleased, but as a tall person I found the back horizontal bar a little uncomfortable. However, strong and light and doesn't take up too much room in a normal boot.

Perhaps slightly more comfortable than many of this type. Paired easily and functioned as it should.

5.0 out of 5 stars Temperature Standard, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Might be fun to play with, but I bought 60g in order to calibrate a mercury thermometer. Melting/freezing point of Ga is an international standard. Probably most practical to use the freezing point, but beware quite a lot of supercooling before solidification begins at the International Standard temperature of 29.7646 degC. A useful reference point close to room temperature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for Bluetooth speakers, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While iPods, iPads etc come ready to drive BT speakers and headsets, many laptops and desktops have BT built in that do not have drivers suitable for audio devices. Microsoft drivers won't always work. Manufacturers of the internal BT devices won't necessarily supply appropriate drivers. Plug in USB devices like this are a convenient way of solving the problem. Plug it in, run the software on the disc, and it works! Excellent.

So easy to use. It makes pineapple preparation so easy it is a delight to avoid the usual mess one used to experience.

1.0 out of 5 stars Insecure Grip, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The security of grip was totally inadequate for an expensive device mounted on handlebars subjected to violent shocks and vibration.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware the colour!, 19 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The advertisement indicated that it was a pack of two black T shirts, but one of them was white! I feel I have been hoodwinked into buying something I didn't want!
