4.0 out of 5 stars Good, fast laptop, but needs stripping down before use., 6 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The laptop came with Windows 8.1 installed plus a load of trial software. Before connecting to the internet I would recommend uninstalling all the trial software that you dont wan't (for me this was everything). I later installed OpenOffice free office package. I also sorted it to boot in desktop mode (much like Windows 7) and made it all look more familair to me (move the mouse to bottom left hand corner of the screen and left click for starters). In desktop mode you can also use the right mouse button click to get something like the start menu once the mouse is down in that bottom left hand corner. I use the Windows 8.1 built in virus protection (Windows Defender). Not the factory installed one. The laptop is very quite, quick and does not heat up much at all. All in all a good solid laptop at a great price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Indepth and Comprehensive., 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really liked the bitsize format of this book. You can dip into it and still not miss anything as it is well cross referenced. It also flows well as a cover to cover read. The level of detail is impressive. The explanations are clear, concise and well thought through. Many of the scripts presented are extremely powerful (there are over 140 provided). Yes, there are some typos (missing spaces usually) and a few errors but these are obvious. It will help any Exadata DMA or anyone wanting to expand their Exadata knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good features, 4 April 2013

I bought this as it allows MAC/IP and URL filtering. You can also setup times that certain IP's can use the router. So overall really great for flexibility and security.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice piece of kit at a very reasonable price., 5 May 2012
I really like the Dynax 500si. It's sturdy yet not too heavy. Everything is very accessible and intuitive. The built in flash is excellent or you can attached your own. This camera has auto everything or you can select manual settings as desired. The detachable lenses are easy to remove and fit. Overall a nice piece of kit at a very reasonable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid and sturdy kit., 27 Dec 2011
The Gym came in four boxes only 5 days after ordering. It went together nicely in one afternoon. All the nuts and bolts were clearly labelled in the kit and diagrams (although some were a bit easier to work out than others). My advice is to build it slow and steady, checking and rechecking every step as you go. If you liked mecanno you will love this! I've been using it for a few days now and have managed to work out the 20 or so exercises from the book. It's all fairly smooth in movement as long as you go easy. Compared to the gym equipment I've used I'd say it stands up well. Very good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint hearted!, 15 Jun 2011
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
I've enjoyed building this model even if at times it has tested my patience. I had to improvice once or twice as not all parts referred to in the instructions were found in my kit. I found a well crafted pate pot did the trick for part of the deck. On a picky day I might say that the kit was overall frustrating, but as I survey my attempt in a milder mood I find myself rather proud at it's appearance and for those who like a challange I would recommend. My advice is to take it slow and by degrees it will reward your effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great entry level detector., 28 Jan 2011
Would highly recommend. Detects hidden metal objects with ease and can be tuned to discriminate. Instruction manual excellent. For the money you would be pushed to find anything as good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent package., 8 Dec 2010
Good communication from seller. Arrived on time and well packaged. The computer was spotless when unpacked. Installed Windows 7 with no issues (the components are Windows 7 ready). Everything works as expected. The graphics card is just great for what I need (mostly simulation games). For the price this is a great package. Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea, but not very durable., 1 May 2010
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
My daughter spent a good hour or so trying to make some wristbands. Sadly, all but one of the bands broke due to the elastic not being strong enough.
