To Make this GPS work you must install the drivers supplied. The latest ones can be downloaded from silicon labs website. If you install software called GPS Gate you will be able to connect the GPS, this is a free download. The GPS gives an accurate position.

I thought I would purchase this MP3 because of the price and you can expand the memory. I purchased an additional 16gb memory card, all I did was copy and paste 9GB of music onto the card and put in the player. All album art was loaded at the same time, no hassles. The sound quality is good from the supplied earphones with enough power. I thought on such a small screen it would be hard to navigate all the music I placed on it but its not a problem with fast scrolling through lists. Its small so you can put it in a pocket with a touch screen phone. The radio picks up the stations in the area with no hiss. Overall well worth it but buy a memory card at the same time.

This camera takes great photos and the zoom is pretty good, better than the 5X zoom of others. Well built and a decent brand in a choice of colours. Put up the brightness so you can see the screen in sunlight. I did this to my other camera and its made a difference. I would pick up a spare battery from ebay so you are not caught out. The colour reproduction is better than a Panasonic I tried. Good for taking on holiday or for general use although not so good in low light.

5.0 out of 5 stars Windows 8 Upgrade, 3 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I upgraded my windows 7 and xp laptops to windows 8 and so far have had no problems. My six year old xp laptop now is faster to boot up and at least it is up to date for £24.99. If you have xp it is worth it for such a low upgrade cost, new programmes won't support xp soon as it is 10 years old. You don't really miss the start button and if your laptop doesn't have a dedicated graphics card you can still put a few games on that will pass the time, although £3.49 for angry birds is a bit steep. Windows 8 is what everyone will be using in a few months, all new laptops will have it so why not get used to it while its on offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Olympus SP810UZ, 10 May 2012

I have had this camera for a few weeks and taken it away on holiday. Firstly it takes great pictures with 14 MP there is plenty of detail in the photos even for enlargements. The main point with this camera is its zoom. You will be zooming into the distance and getting great shots even when you are far away. The zoom allows you see things that you are unable to see with your eyes. Even at full zoom you can take blur free shots. The video quality is good enough with image stabilisation. Good price and quality pictures make it a good buy.

I have had this clock for six months and has kept good time but there is a problem. One of the metal plates has been eroded and in the end fell off. The clock is now useless. So if you want a clock for six months get it but it won't last that long..

4.0 out of 5 stars Samsung BD-C 5500, 7 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This blu ray player is wifi enabled but you will have to pay £40 for the dongle. This will give you access to Samsung apps the main gripe is it still does not have the bbc iplayer on this model but does have love films. Using the remote to type is slow and the experience of internet tv on this blu ray is not something I would want to recommend. Using the remote to play games is slow and not really worth it. The player is noisy but the picture quality is very good. I use a wii for the iplayer as the wii remote is a far easier way to type. So not a bad player but I would look around as the noise from a blu ray/dvd was a surprise in todays market.

3.0 out of 5 stars Android 2.2 tablet, 6 Mar 2011
I purchased this from another supplier (ebay) and the updated one has a front facing camera. Still it runs android 2.2 so you move apps to sd, 512mb of memory with 4gb built in, you can also add a micro sd card for more storage. The screen is not as responsive as an ipad but for the price it is pretty good. Android market was built in and lets you use most of the free apps from the market, just download the same as a phone.(Note not all of the apps would work) Guardian Anytime is a good app to try. The battery life isn't as good as stated. One problem is a lack of volume control buttons on the tablet but 8 inches is a good size to carry around with you. Android market is nowhere near as good as the app store but with most things you get what you pay for. At least you can take this with you and if it gets damaged you haven't lost £400.

I have just used these on a flight to the UK. I only had to put the volume to half on my ipod and still didn't hear the plane. Don't waste your money on noise cancelling headphones these will do the job without the expense.

I purchased this item 2 months ago and now two of the plugs have failed. When you switch them on and off the light changes but the appliances stay on. I wouldn't waste your money go to the high street you only have a 30 day return policy. At B&Q they are the same price why take the risk.
