1.0 out of 5 stars Racist depiction of non-Americans, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Am Pilgrim (Kindle Edition)
Great if you sympathise with the world-view that the American way is the best way and that other cultures are primitive in comparison.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work for me, 28 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had wildly varying readings for the first six or seven minutes of running (between 30 and 120 bpm). This was even after I dampened the strap with water. I concluded it was because I have dry skin. I read later that there is some gel you can get to put on the strap but this wasn't mentioned in the instructions. After seven minutes when I started perspiring it worked okay. However this was too unreliable for my use and I returned it.

Comfortable to wear. Love the mesh pockets for easily stowing gloves or other items in addition to the zip pocket. Great colour too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Needs proof reading, 15 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Littered with errors right from the start. No one has bothered to read it carefully before publishing. I find that quite annoying.

3.0 out of 5 stars Many many typos, 29 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great book. Bizarre, entertaining and well-written. But the Kindle edition is packed with typos. Why can't proof-readers check ebooks properly?

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor Stopwatch Function, 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When the stopwatch reaches 20 minutes the numbers become compressed and difficult to read. At 30 minutes the seconds can only be seen in a small display. The watch itself is a bit big and clunky for everyday use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Power lead required - nuisance, 4 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The write up didn't mention that you can't just run the 2TB drive off the USB lead. It has to be plugged in. This is a nuisance for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too short for iphone 4, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lovely well-made durable case but the iphone 4 sticks out by several millimetres so it is only protected at one end if you drop it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant light, 4 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Literally brilliant. I use it on flashing mode and the batteries seem to be lasting for ages. Plus people often look up at the bike as the light is so dazzling.

3.0 out of 5 stars You can't clean it, 27 Oct 2010
There is no turbo clean on this iron. If you have hard water in your area after a few months you will start to get limescale on the clothes you iron. I've spoken to Morphy Richards and they have offered to replace it with the recommendation that I use filtered water in the future. So don't fill it from your tap if you live in that kind of area. Other than that it has been a good iron, but having to rewash clothes each time is not so appealing.
