5.0 out of 5 stars Takes me back to when it was shown on TV!, 27 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I remember this being shown for the first time on TV. The content and persons depicted all have a gritty and real edge to them. You can actually believe it is happening as you watch the screen. The fashions and cars may have changed, but the dodging dealings remain the same today.

3.0 out of 5 stars Magnifying glass reccomended, 27 May 2010
This Map is ok, but actually spotting the warnings on the map is not as easy as some would make out.

My old AA Truckers atlas has the low bridges clearly marked with large warning triangles. The Philips map does not, you have to look far more carefully. In a darkened cab at night it is even more difficult.
Having said that, I quite like the style of mapping Philips have used from Ordnance Survey.

This review is from: Voice Of A Generation (Audio CD)
I bought this so I could have the album on CD. I have had the vinyl album since it was released. It still sounds as good now as it did back then....Excellent!

4.0 out of 5 stars Saved Lenovo lap top from the recycling bin, 22 Feb. 2010
Lenovo lap tops have had a bit of bad press with regards to battery problems. Other manufacturers have suffered as well, but here we're talking about Lenovo.
The Lenovo 3000 N100 lap top had been reliable since it was bought in 2007. However, it started to show "full battery" instantly when on mains but then switch off quickly when running on battery. A search on the web found that this was likely to be a battery problem rather than a lap top fault. When closely inspected, the battery actually had a small melted area where presumably it has overheated.
The replacement battery from Amazons supplier arrived quickly and was the same colour silver as the original. It has been in use for a few weeks now and seems to have cured the problem.
The Amazon price was one of the best on the web but you also get the Amazon service, which so far, I have always found to be very good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfy Camping, 28 Aug. 2009
I found the Campingaz X'tra Quickbed very comfortable and well worth the price. It kept the air in and just needed a top up now and again during a two week camping holiday in August. I did get mine from Amazon whilst it was on special offer and it has now gone up in price, but it still seems good value.
The "double pump" I use was from Trago Mills, it cost a £1 and it also does the inflatable boat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as impressed as others, 15 Dec. 2008
I bought a Canon Ixus 870 due to the good experiences of older Canon cameras and I wanted a replacement for my Sony P-9 which I've used for 5 years or so, the wide angle lens was also an added bonus.
The first one from Amazon had a damaged LCD screen plus I wasn't happy with the quality of the pictures taken. Amazon replaced it very quickly so full marks to Amazon and their carriers for that.
The replacement camera arrived and the picture quality was the same as the first one. Blurred and out of focus were the main problems.I tried different settings, Auto and Programme, but in the end decided I couldn't live with a camera costing nearly £200 that took so-so pictures. Compared with my old Sony P-9 there is not the advance that I had expected and an older Ixus 400 we have also gives clearer pictures considering its age.
Checking out other cameras of 10MP and above it would seem basic "snap shot" quality has not moved on from the 4MP days.
I just want a camera that takes good pictures that are not blurry or noisy at low ISO settings and in my opinion the Ixus 870 wasn't it.

3.0 out of 5 stars It works, but why so short?, 19 Nov. 2008
It's a USB style charger and it works. The only problem would be that the cable is much shorter than the original. It's a shame they couldn't make it the same length, to save over stretching the cable, and just add a bit to the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely useful connector!, 19 Nov. 2008
I bought this adaptor kit to transfer data from an IDE laptop drive to a new laptop SATA drive via the USB port. It's easy to use, needs no manual, just simply "plug and play". It saves a lot of time copying data onto CD or DVD.
It also looks far more professional than others in the market place.
