Itil Foundation Exam Study Guide

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but needs improvement, 21 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In general a good book, but the order and the organization of the chapters are not very good and definitely needs improvement. The book needs to be more aligned with the ITIL syllabus.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very narrow, 16 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just be aware that this shoe is very narrow. Even if I ordered half size bigger than I normally wear at trekking shoes, it was no way my feet were comfortable in these shoes. Not a suitable shoe if you have a relatively wide foot.. I returned them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but still a "bridge" camera, 31 Dec. 2012
The camera has plenty of features to explore. Its image quality is (as expected) very good under adequate light levels; yet, low-light performance still needs to be improved considerably. Camera relies on (unless you set a max limit) high ISO values for low light situations same as other cameras and this causes more than expected noise in the picture because high ISO performance is really disappointing (I had read that max ISO to be used should be 400 for this camera. But, even that is too high and causes much noise. Do not exceed 200 with this camera). If you use zoom, the performance further decreases.

I haven't tested its performance against moving objects yet. But, I can see that I shouldn't expect much while shooting indoors.

Its design and usability is very good. Smaller than expected. No issues at these points.

The biggest downfall of this camera is the small sensor. Panasonic used exactly the same size of sensor it is using for its pocket-size compact cameras and they tried to compensate this with a special f2.8 constant aperture over the whole zoom range. Yet, this didn't work quite well. They should have definitely used a bigger sensor for such a camera.

This camera may be the best bridge-camera on the market, but it is far away being a replacement for an DSLR camera and the main reason is the small sensor on it. This being said, this camera looks like a bigger size compact camera..

2.0 out of 5 stars Like a toy, 19 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is definitely not worth the money you pay for it. It is more like a toy than a precision thermometer & hygrometer. I have calibrated it as described in the short manual, but the thermometer is not sensitive enough. In addition, this thing looks like a cheap gadget, nothing reliable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average to good but not very good.., 1 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This ipad2 case is in general average-good quality, and I am sure there are better ones. I ordered this one because it has also "vertical" stand and it looked good at the pictures. Today I have received it and I am now of the opinion that I wouldn't buy this one in a store where I can check the material and design and quality etc.. This case is average-to-good quality and GBP 20 is the maximum you should give for this one.. Or better spend a bit more and get a better one..

One of the best compact bike tool kits. I have used several and this is the best one so far. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 9 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In general very low quality product. I can not say much about the strength and the quality of the cable, but the rest of this lock (i.e. the keys, the connection parts, the alarm case) is very easy to break. On the pictures these parts look like high quality steel or something equivalent, but they are NOT. They are made up from a cheap and fragile material; very easy to break.

In brief, stay away from this product.. It is a total waste of money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple but reliable, 28 April 2010
Only basic functions. But, if you are also like me (i.e. you need only speed, total distance and odo), this is for you..
In addition it works good and is sensitive. I had another brand (also known as a good brand) which was useless (stops working while you cycle) so I bought this one and quite happy with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not recommended, 25 April 2010
When it works, it works good and sensitive. But, unfortunately it frequently stops (shows 0 km speed and stays so even if you ciycle), very irritating. I'll buy another brand and throw this away..
