Works really well. No doubt when you detect a nail or screw. Just marked out the ceiling joists on a job in no time at all.

As replacement lamps they work well. Good light - no warm up - no buzzing noises - don't look or feel delicate like the other low energy bulbs. Will report back on how long they last when they fail or after 50000 hours of use.....

5.0 out of 5 stars How the trick is done....., 12 Nov 2011
A brilliantly written and well referenced explanation of a great illusion which is still fooling some of the people all of the time. Were the consequences of what Donna Laframboise describes not so serious this would have been an enjoyable read. It was certainly thought provoking.

4.0 out of 5 stars What's not to like?, 28 Oct 2011
Well, to answer my own question, the cost of replacement cartridges.

The kit itself is fine. Setting up the wireless connection was diverting rather than simple but I got there. Once it's set up it works reliably well for my wife and me and our two laptops. Lack of wires a distinct benefit.

My printer came with a european plug on it. I just used the power lead from the venerable and hugely reliable old LaserJet 1100 I'm retiring because I can't get it to work properly with a serial to USB adaptor cable. I see someone else has had the same issue over the power lead but I haven't troubled Amazon about it - although I guess they would have sorted something if I'd asked.

Don't regret buying this at all and the price was a major factor. Perhaps I'll just buy another one when the cartridges need replacing. It looks as if it might save me money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost there SONY, 28 Oct 2011
Be warned if you are buying this to watch TV over the internet it only provides a service from BBC iplayer and something similar from Channel 5. Doesn't work with ITV or 4 OD. Not much use as a internet browser. Good for streaming content from LoveFilm and YouTube although inputting of search criteria will drive you mad unless you are the kind of person who actually enjoy entering text messages in you mobile phone.

As a TV you get all you would expect from Sony and nothing at all to grumble about. Good viewing experience.

Had fun adding the TV to the home network and accessing content stored on other computers.

Don't regret buying but feel a bit let down on the internet side of things.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost ideal, 28 Oct 2011
Fits well and will protect the phone from everyday knocks and scratches and to some extent from moisture. In use you will need a terrific memory of which keys are which. I have to take the cover off to text. Good value for what it cost though.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hockey Stick Illusion: Climategate and the Corruption of Science, 23 Mar 2010
A fascinating and clearly written book which deserves the widest possible readership. Whilst the proponents of AGW claim the science is settled, this book shows the breathtaking lengths that were gone to in the silencing any challenge to the hockey stick.

Time after time in the narrative this reader wanted to believe that the evidence to show that the hockey stick was unsound could not be ignored. Time after time the evidence is ignored or dismissed out of hand.

I look foward to a sequel that explains how everything comes right in the end and good science prevails. I hope that circumstances are such that the author is able to write it up within months rather than decades. Aware as I am of the methods that have been used over the last 10 years or so described in the book, I won't hold my breath!
