Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It takes a bit of untangling when removing from the box. But this is a remarkable piece of jewellery for a very low price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lid wont fit if files hang on sides., 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These boxes are good, but be warned that if you fill them with office files, and the ends of the files hang on the sides of the box, the lid wont fit on. But I would buy them again.

2.0 out of 5 stars The packaged batteries leaked., 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased for my girlfriend to light the hallway at night. Setup was ok, the back cover could do with a redesign. Unit failed to work after three weeks, kept flashing on and off. One of the batteries that was included with the item had leaked and corroded the terminals.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is going to be useful, 11 Jun 2014
Purchased five days ago. I am a phone app developer, so have lots of phones – WP and Android. The 630 is lighter and easier in the pocket than the 625, and much improved from the 620. The windows buttons at the base of the phone could have been lower down, there is about 10mm of dead space at the bottom of the phone. Phone calls are clear, signal is good. The missing camera button would be a pain if I wanted to quickly whip out the camera and photograph something. But the benefit of the missing camera button is that there is finally some way of picking up a Lumia phone by the sides without accidently pressing a button. Also, the Nokia camera app is much improved, with manual photographic controls now similar to a basic SLR (including bracketing and speed shooting), and I can take a bit more time varying the camera before taking the photo and get a better photo. The Windows Phone 8.1 is more of an interconnected system than its predecessor WP8, which felt like a collection of individual apps. In terms of development, I can build a single project that will install on this phone (WP8.1) and on Windows 8 desktop, which is a great opportunity for me. The most remarkable thing about this phone is that it is available for less than 100.

2.0 out of 5 stars Waffles, 4 Mar 2009
I bought this book along with three others - the four most commonly referenced scriptwriter guides. "Story", is the largest, and includes diagrams as well as text. This book could have been a lot shorter. The author's style reads like the transcript of a lecture by a bloated professor who loves the sound of his own voice, and has just come back from a late lunch. I gave up halfway, and this is a book I keep next to the toilet! My suggestion is to pick a thinner book, where the content has been thinned and honed into something more punchy and memorable.
