Nice feel under finger, gives decent protection but was very hard to remove all bubbles on application. Expensive but it feels a quality product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 14 Oct 2012
This replaced my 305 which started to fail. This is a much better design than the 405 and 410. Gps lock takes at most 90 seconds and is often quicket. The only let down is the inability to follow a course map as the 305 can, otherwise an excellent bit of kit.

Pricey but works well enough, setup was easy with the device working immediately on plugging it in. The only disappointment is you cannot alter zoom level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hi quality product that does the job, 20 Sep 2012
Installation is a breeze if you read the advice given !!!

The quality is evident immediately, the feel under finger is just right unlike the Zagg Invisible Shield which is flipping awful. No affect on viewing angles and finger marks are no better or worse than an unprotected screen imho. The shield covers 95% of the screen which is good enough. Yes the item is expensive and does not come with an applicator but who the hell does not have a card in their wallet or purse to do the job?

Bottom line, great product and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading !!!, 22 Feb 2011
I stumbled onto this book quite by accident, when listening to the podcast Windows Weekly of all things. Paul Thurrott a tech journalist who seldom goes into print talked about this book in an extremely positive way, as I respect his opinion on tech matters it encouraged me to get this book - and I am very glad I did. Gary Taubes book is just on the money with the amount of scientific evidence he unearthed that casts major doubts on the perceived widom from nutritionists, doctors and current and latter day scientists who bang the drum for the low fat, high carb, calories in/calories out crowd. His book systematically and emphtatically undermines all that and comes to a "heretical" conclusion that we are becoming more obeses as well follow the "conventional wisdom"

I recommend this book highly and would also urge readers interested in material such as Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson as a complimentary source that comes to the same conclusion but from a completely different angle, whereas Gary Taubes book is built on scientific evidence, Mark Sisson's book stems from his days as a very successful athlete - two authors, who have no known association to my knowledge that arrive at the same conclusion that increase insulin caused by high carb diets are the biggest culprit behind the explosion in obesity we see today.

Both books, highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars FIFA 11 PC, 29 Dec 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: FIFA 11 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Nice upgrade from last year, can be hard to score which is more realistic than PES 11 on PC, FIFA has better gameplay but one area where PES is better is long passing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Device, 22 July 2009
Nice combination of portability, sound quality and of course its rechargeable battery is a major plus. Well worth the selling price even at MRP which you should always find it cheaper than. Highly recommended.
