Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife broke her original Sony Charger and so needed a replacement. This small, slim charger does exactly what it is supposed to, it charges her Sony Vio. So far after 2 months of using it, we have had no issues and it works as it should. The other advantage of this unit, is that it is much smaller, slimmer and lighter than the original, which makes it easier to travel with. I am happy to Highly Recommend the product.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this cable to go with a HooToo portable Ethernet to WiFi router. I stay in hotels which sometimes do not have good room WiFi but do have the old Ethernet boxes. This wire connects from the Ethernet box into my portable router and I then get WiFi. The cable is good quality and it works as it should. I am therefore very happy to Highly Recommend the product.

This review is from: TomTom USB Car Charger (Accessory)
The original TomTom charger broke and we searched for a new one. We could not find one in the shops where we were (Bulgaria) so ordered this. It is perfect and works as it should. Had no problems with it and I am happy to highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the Price, 24 Nov 2014
I was given this camera to test and review in exchange for an honest review.

This is a well made small camera. Once out of the box, a full 4 hour charge will give you between 60 to 70 minutes of recording time. Luckily there are battery indicators on the unit to show full charge and empty. It records onto a micro SD card (not supplied). The camera comes with clips which allow it to be positioned and held in place on such things as handlebars and a helmet. With the included case, it is also fully waterproof for underwater shots. It is simply a versatile small HD camera, which has so many uses.

The picture it produces is superb. If using it during an activity, you have a programme that allows for shake and this steadies the shot and reduces fuzziness. I also put it in a universal car charging bracket and it works as a car cam. The best resolution you can get from the camera is 12MP and can take 30 to 60 frames per second with a four times zoom facility. It is quite remarkable what this small unit can do, given its price.

Overall this is a super compact still shot/video camera. For the price its hard too beat. I am happy to highly recommend the product.

I was given this product by the manufacturer to review and keep in exchange for an honest review.

I am have been living in Bulgaria for part of each month and the way they drive over here, is something quite quite different. It is aggressive and very fast. In April of this year, my wife was involved in a minor accident, where a car came out of a side street and came in front of her and she hit him. As we had limited Bulgarian, the police were told a story by the other driver, whereby my wife was to blame. The other driver also attempted to move his car, to reduce the evidence of his guilt. In the end we were able to get our story across and we were deemed not at fault. Why do I tell this story? Upto this point it would never have occurred to me the importance of this small device. If we had one then there would not have been any arguing.

The camera itself is quite small but very well made. The product arrives with everything you need, camera, suction mount, cables, cigarette charging cable and instructions. The only thing you do need is a micro SD card, which is why I have taken a star off the product, this should be included.

The camera itself is very easy to use, you can capture either pictures or video and the LED screen will allow you to playback what you have recorded. There is an internal microphone which will also record clear sound. You can also take the camera home and feed the pictures or video through your TV. The camera can also stamp a date on your recording if you want to use it as evidence, may the need arise. The camera is also fully functional, in that most of the features can be adjusted, such as sound, contrast and recording type. The picture that it can record is sharp and good and night recording is aided by infra red LED's, which do help capture night shots.

Overall this is a great unit, which excels in its design and functionality and I am happy to Highly Recommend the product.

I received this item from the manufacturer to test, review and keep in return for an honest review.

This is a very clever device, which can capture both photo's and video to playback what the unit finds. The quality of the pictures is of very high quality and the light on the end of the scope is positioned in such a way, that it allows perfect illumination without causing any overexposure of the picture. The LED screen is fully adjustable, which allows different brightness for different lighting conditions. The screen unit records the time and date within the picture and shows actual battery status. The unit itself is quite light and the handle affords an easy grip. With this product the easy to read instructions enable a novice to master what this unit can do, quite easily.

Overall this is a well made, easy to use, low cost unit and I am happy to Highly Recommend it.

I have ultra sensitive skin and have virtually all shaving gels on the market. Some have been poor some have been good but few have been great. This product is in the great category. You only need a small amount to cover the whole face. One it has been massaged in it turns into a rich lather, which really does protect the face, even when using an older razer head. I have had no nicks or cuts when using this gel. Also it leaves the face feeling soft. The smell has very delicate hue of sandalwood. Overall this is a superior gel and I am happy to highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Software, 24 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I now run several businesses in the UK. I use an accountant I have known for many years and have always been happy with their service. I have had very little need for such software, especially given the price of accounting software packages. I am not a computer whiz and sometimes find complicated Microsoft software packages difficult to use.

I received this software free of charge via the Amazon Vine programme. In truth I would not have bought such software, given my relationship with my accountant. I therefore used this opportunity to try the software without any risk or guilt. As this is the second tine of using I am getting used to how the programme works and the ultimate ease of use.

It was simplicity itself to install. The software gives you a comprehensive and easy to use accounting package. Whilst my area of business pertains to the service sector and does require the holding of stock, the software can easily handle business situations where stock control is necessary. It can easily track sales, expenses and profits and can create professional looking invoices using PDF's for emails. It can automatically calculate VAT and creates an Efile so you can send it directly to HMRC. It works with all Office programmes so there is great compatibility, so allowing greater ease of use. It also allows you to create budgets and cash flow projections. In short this software can handle virtually anything a small to medium sized business can throw at it.

A final note on this particular package, there is a difference between Quickbooks Pro and Premier software. The Premier software contains additional Time Saving Tools such as, the ability to create budgets and cash flow forecasts, it allows you to create back orders and so automatically set stock aside for order fulfillment, track unbilled expenses and allow you to set different prices on the same item depending upon client or job. All of these time saving options work in the same intuitive way as the rest of the package.

Whilst I am a stick in the mud and like the reassurance that my accountant brings, this software is the next best thing. It is easy to use and does virtually everything you will require. A great product at a great price, compared to other accounting software packages.

Price: £20.54

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Students, 21 Nov 2014
This review is from: International Strategy (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It is amazing sometimes items come onto the Vine list, just at a point in life when I need them. This book is just one of those items. Currently I am Lecturing Post Grad and Under Grad classes in Global Strategic Management. I have been using the prescribed course book, Global Strategic Management by Frynas and Mellahi which is very good, but a bit dated. This book is bang up to date. it is written by an academic expert in the field and is full of useful insights into international strategies for managers. It mixes strategies, advice and wonderful examples, which any student of management will find helpful. This is not a beginners book, as it assumes prior knowledge, but for any student of Global Strategic Management, I think this will make a great accompaniment of the standard course book and will be especially useful for its case studies.

Excellent and recommend for students of Strategic Management.

There is not much you can say about this, as the description says it all. This is a well made 40 pocket A4 display book. Each pocket can hold upto 2 pieces of paper. The spine has a place where you can write the subject matter for the content. Overall this is a superbly made display book and I am happy to recommend it.
