4.0 out of 5 stars Good reliable accurate thermometer (from China), 26 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I already had 2 of these thermometers but wanted some more for other rooms in the house. The thermometer comes from China, so took about 6 weeks to arrive. I ordered 2 and was afraid if I ordered too many that UK customs would take an interest. In the end they didn't.

The thermometer is accurate and the others I've had for a couple of years are going strong with no issues with the digits not displaying. It also only uses a single battery (AA) and still lasts forever before needing a new one.

I'd rate it 5 but the 6 weeks wait to receive it prevented me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Primo viaggio car seat, 5 May 2011
Does what is says on the tin, but was manufactured in 2007 so in storage somewhere for some years. The brackets that Mamas and Papas produce for their latest car seats don't fit this seat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kodak ZX3 review, 5 May 2011
Not normally being into obsessive detail on buying products, I was fully expecting to find a good waterproof camera within a short space of time. Boy, how wrong I was! Most cameras I saw got terrible reviews with leaks and poor picture quality top of the list. And buying a waterproof case didn't seem to be a good option as well- they fogged up quickly leaving you wondering why you'd splashed the case (pun intended). After a lot of time invested, I came across the positive reviews for the Kodak ZX3 and one was splashing my way within a short space of time.

All I can say is that the reviews hit the nail on the head- it is very easy to use, not endless options you never select. The picture quality is very good and it really is waterproof. But you will need to buy a SDHC card, though at £13 for enough space for a couple of hours of video (16GB, though it will go up to 32 GB) who can complain.

In summary if you're thinking of buying this camera, then spend you're time choosing a colour, since whether to buy or not is a done deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Sony Micro Vault- 2 GB, 4 Dec 2008
The Micro Vault is one of those products that you really wished had been invented years ago. It is perfect for your wallet and is so small and slim that you really can forget that it's there. It's so much more convenient than the vastly bigger USB sticks on the market.

The only problem I've experienced is that you have to know which way round to insert it in the USB socket and it's so small that you can easily forget to remove it. Oh and some people complain about its speed, but is this really important for the vast majority of applications, such as saving Word documents.
