4.0 out of 5 stars 30 pin Dock Extender, 27 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The extender is much bigger than expected, which means that both my iPhone and iPad float well above the dock and makes them slightly less stable. It works well but will put a little stress on the connector. Another advantage is that now I don't have to take my iPhone out of its case to recharge it. Overall this is a good product which does exactly what it's supposed to!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mio GPS Car Kit for iPhone, 10 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great product that I use with my iPhone 4 and it all seems to work very well. Used with the iPhone as a SatNav, the Mio quickly is quick, accurate and reliable. As a bluetooth car kit, the hands free function is also reliable and the built in volume controled speaker is loud enough to be heard over any music you are playing (however loud).

All round the Mio is a good product, which is well made and competitively priced.

"The folding step is great, it folds out of the way when not in use and easily converts into the step with very little effort.

My wife find it very useful in the kitchen and is now able to reach those shelves she couldn't easily get to before."

Great product which is exactly as described on the website. Not much else too say except that the quality is good, and it look substantial enough to stand the test of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who Tardis set, 5 Feb. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have seen from other reviewers that most purchasers seem to be (adult) collectors who are happy with this set. I bought this as a Christmas present for my nephew though.

The figures look like the actors and the Tardis itself is reasonable well made. Time will tell if it can stand the ravages of an 8 year old.......so far I am impressed as it February, he still loves it and everything is in perfect working order.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Pacific mini-series, 5 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Pacific series is from the team behind Band of Brothers. Its a ten-hour mini-series that traces three American marines of Easy Company as they fight World War II in the Pacific.

In most good TV drama series, strong, well-defined characters are required right from start to shape the action. To start with characters are pencil sketches, unsubtle and thinly drawn. But in a similar way to Band of Brothers, after a few episodes, we start seeing the men of Easy Company as three-dimensional people.

Like Band of Brothers, the series draws upon the expertise of Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks. The $150million budget was mostly spent on sets and set-pieces rather than its cast, who as with Band of Brothers, are relatively little-known. The trick with The Pacific is to be patient and you will be rewarded.

3.0 out of 5 stars Aurora AS1018CD 10 Sheet Cross Cut Paper Shredder, 29 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Aurora is a good shredder, I have been using it regularly for the past three months and is relatively quick and has never disappointed. It even shreds old credit cards quickly.

A point to note though if you are shredding a lot of paper it can only be used for 5 minutes at a time then you have to have a break, or it will overheat. The instructions do highlight this though.

Overall relatively good value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars WD My Passport Essential SE 1 TB Black Portable Hard Drive, 29 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had several hard drives in the past and Western Digital and to me WD is still one of the best brands. They are reliable, easy to install and ready to use out of the box. The drive is both Windows and Mac compatible, and although it came pre-formatted for Windows I had no issue reformatting it for my iMac.

Being USB 3.0 it is fully compatible with USB 2.0 and therefore speed is still relatively good .

The only negative points I can think of are: being gloss black (which looks very cool) it is very hard to keep pristine as it attracts duct and shows up all your fingerprints; and the supplied USB cable is a non-standard connector and isn't very long.

All-in-all this was very reasonably priced and I am very pleased with this purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Elements 10, 7 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this Elements/Premiere bundle to be reliable, easy to use, and good value for money having upgraded from Elements 9! I can still see that its the Elements package that will be used the most, but the extra for Premiere was neglible.

Compared to version 9 Elements seems to have a better layout and the guided edits are useful if somewhat limited. The organiser much improved from previous version. The tabbed interface is organised into 3 sections these are Edit, Create and Share. From there, Edit is further divided into sub-Tabs for Full, Quick and Guided Edits.

Premiere Elements 10 also offers a tabbed interface separated into Project, Edit, Disc Menus and Share.

In conclusion I would say that this is a great software bundle from Adobe, which is reliable, easy to use, and good value for money.


Matterhorn
Matterhorn
by Karl Marlantes
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Matterhorn, 18 Aug. 2011

This review is from: Matterhorn (Paperback)
An interesting novel by someone who actually served in the Vietnam War. Although fiction, Karl Marlantes has given the reader a great written account of the horrors of war in Vietnam from the point of view of an infantry rifle section. He has obviously drawn on his own personal experience to show a reality that can only be described by someone who's actually been through it. I do strongly recommend Matterhorn, as this was a really good read.
