4.0 out of 5 stars Tricky to describe these., 10 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On photos it looks like you are getting a state of the art piece of kit, in reality "made in China", plasticky, hard manual aperture ring make. You put that on your camera you will look some lame'o with a pseudo-mini-SLR.. BUT .. this is an impressive lens when it comes to pictures, just stunning. Focuses very quickly, even if a bit loud. This is something you must have! Planning on comparing these to the 40 year old nikon f 1.8 manual lens and writing a review on this!

Good speaker / tone adjustment. Go outside, sit down on a bench and let the fun begin - lots of stations from across the globe. Marine comms (? - different modulation though so sounds like robots). Very well made - looks and feels solid and well made.

This review is from: Hanayama Enigma Puzzle (Toy)
Just keep it on your table in your living room. Guest come to visit, they will most certainly ask "whats that?".. Oh .. you know .. 3 pieces of metal that need separating.. And the fun begins :D

3.0 out of 5 stars was expecting more survivalist tactics to be mentioned, 13 Jun 2014

Make no mistake - this is a very good read, It explains how the past events wiped out almost all of life on our planet. It also explains how tiny changes made it all possible for us to even exist. From historical point of view very interesting book, I was however expecting more .. tips and tricks to follow once the mushroom clouds appear :D

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyes this very much, 13 Jun 2014

As a fan of 10+ year old cars I found this read very interesting. This easily explains each area of technology used in cars. It also mentions older technology and how this was improved over the years. Good pictures and drawings. A book to enjoy when you have a few minutes to yourself.

Chose this one because of price, brand and functionality, also the solar solution seemed interesting so I decided to give it a go.Well made, simple to read. The digital display is very simple but useful - all the useful functions are there. You can illuminate the digital bit. Don't have to worry about the power - as long as you move around, go outside twice a day and don't live in a dungeon - It will say "HI" in the power level display menu. Downsides? None really, very cool and yet simple watch. My minutes arm seem to be +/- 20 secs behind so I guess more attention to mechanical detail should have been paid.So far quite happy with this buy.

for this price this is a good piece of kit. My 4year old niece plays on this using it as a slide. Because it is not straight - it takes a lot of muscle to actually do a sit up on this, so before you try - make sure you have done a lot of normal sit ups.

This is regarding the non-stand model. Nice breeze, could be stronger. The mentioned ability to change RPM applies to the other models on the drop down list. The bending neck could be stronger too as it is tricky to shape it the way you want.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect product, 23 Jan 2014
As an IT person I always recommend this product. The truth is - free stuff doesn't work and if you want quality you have to pay for it. Not much to pay, but to get your computer infected while running Eset you'd have to try hard, real hard. All dodgy sites get blocked and connection reset right away. Very light and does not slow the system down at all (try the same with norton or Kasperky and you'll notice the difference). After disabling a few useless features (detection of potentially unwanted / dangerous applications) this works like a dream.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but there is a BUT, 17 Sep 2012
Very good make and quality, easy to read. Dont be fooled by its wireless feature - this turns out to be more reliable than the cabled ones. Mine has been working on same batteries for a year now so good power consumption. HOWEVER - better write your miles down when reseting / changing the batteries - it will not allow you to set the ODO manually. Because of this I will be ditching it for a PLUS model because I need the total ODO at all time to be showing correctly..
