5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and easy to use., 13 Dec. 2015
Very easy to use and produces good quality coffee easily. The milk dispenser works very well as long as you keep it clean, which is easy to do. The only small downside is the size of drinks it produces can be a little smaller than is normal in the UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth Android Tablet, 23 Jan. 2013
The Galaxy Note 10.1 is the smoothest most responsive Android tablet I have used so far. It streams HD video from various sources with no glitches or drop outs. Netflix, youtube etc all work well. Even on intensive websites the performance is good and 2GB of really helps when running and switching between multiple apps. The stereo speakers are surprisingly clear as is the screen. I have no use for the stylus but it works well enough. Google play is easy to use for downloading apps. The sdcard slot is a real benefit and means you can easily carry a lot of media with you expanding the storage way beyond 16GB that is built in. The ability to see the whole file system via USB cable to a PC is also very useful as are the android file browser apps. This is where it gains over an iPad.

Where it falls down compared to even in some cases an iPad two is the range and quality of iTunes apps. Although an iPad 2 has less memory, a slower CPU etc some of the apps are smoother and faster than on Android. This is not a criticism of the Note 10.1 but just Android in general. Netflix is great in either format but the iplayer for android is poor and you have to install flash to get round it. Other apps are either missing, relatively poorly or need updating to work with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean. Also the additional addon's for the Note 10.1 such as hdmi adapters , docking stations are expensive due to being in very short supply.

This is a very good tablet which is let down relative to an ipad by Android and the availability currently of addos not the tablet it's self. But the key point is it very good value for money and a very good Android tablet.

After close inspection this is a 32GB class 4 SDHC Memory card. Working fine so far for movies and other media and very convient to carry a few of these with the tablet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Galaxy tab 2 10.1 wireless only, 31 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for the cheapest branded value for money Android tablet that perforns well. When I first started using the tablet it was slow on most web sites and in general usage compared to our ipad2. After updating the newly released android software and then doing a reset to factory defaults it now runs smoothly on all but the most intensive of websites using the default web browser. This is much better than the unstable, unsupported cheap chinese clones that are available. Also the build quailty of the tablet is very good.

BBC iplayer and Netflix both work smoothly with good quality picture and sound. Currently there is no hdmi adapter for the tablet which is very poor given the previous and US versions of the tablet both had one. This may stop some people buying the tablet. The memory card slot is also a good feature as you can easily carry a few round with you to hold all your media. You can download and install flash but I don't need it so didn't bother.

If you can get one for £200 or less with the samsung rebate it is a good deal. Not as fast or smooth as an ipad 2 but much cheaper and a good quality branded budget tablet. At above £250 and closer to £300 other more powerful tablets become available.

Bought these boots to walk the dog across muddy woods and fields. So far after a few weeks they proved to be waterproof and very comfortable to wear with an extra pair of socks. They grip well and are showing no signs of any problems so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very easy to use, 2 Jun. 2012
Having used a cheap Android tablet before the iPad 2 is a big step up. My wife found the Android tablet frustrating to use but with the iPad everything just works smoothly and easily. There are plenty of good quality apps and it plays music / films very well. We also use it to watch Netflix on the iPad and connected to the TV.

The only two downsides are no flash and Apple do restrict what the iPad can do compared to Android tablets. So do a little research before you buy to make sure the iPad suits your needs. Also reliability and support from Apple are excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fans, 7 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very easy to install and are quiet enough until they get near full speed.

Installed on at the rear and one at the top of my PC case which previously had no fans except the CPU cooler.

Running with the CPU maxed out temps dropped from 60c to 46c with the fans just over half speed at 1100rpm. With the fans at full speed the temps dropped to low 40's.

Very good fans, would recommend and am buying another to finish off the cooling in my pc case.

This is a very good headset for the money. Fits well, sounds good and is very easy to install. The only slight downside is the mic arm seems a bit short but it works fine. Been playing bf3 and it sounds really good, don't forget the change bf3 as well as your pc sound setup to surround sound.

2.0 out of 5 stars Close but not good enough, 12 Nov. 2011
Ignoring the bugs which will be patched eventually this has the makings of a good game. Good sound and graphics and the gameplay is ok. The big problem is unlike bf2 and bf2142 there is no squad play and VoIP. This means rather than each team working together to win the map people just camp and wander round aimlessly by themselves.

If this was put back to the same as bf2 and bf2142 this would be a very good game.
