4.0 out of 5 stars Could be great...., 25 July 2015
Fast, apparently well made drive at a good price that works well with Time Machine. Had to work around a write permissions issue on set up and it has a ridiculously irritating large blue light on the front which flickers incessantly whenever info is written to it or read, hence only 4 stars - bin the stupid light please, La Cie!


The Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom
The Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom
by Alfred Barnard
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars All the Barnard you'll ever need, 21 April 2010
Terrific facsimile edition of the irreplaceable 1886-7 original with intro by erudite whisky retailer, Richard Joynson. A must-have for any would be malt whisky historian.

2.0 out of 5 stars One to avoid, 22 Mar. 2010
The SF 375 fax/answerphone is one to avoid, full stop. After liking other Samsung machines before, we bought one for a busy home office. As others have said, the microphone is deficient. No amount of work gets you an answerphone message people can understand, or messages left for you that make sense. Also, ink is expensive at £20 plus and seems to run out, plus the cartridges are awkward to change - see a Canon machine for how it should be done. Buy one of the cheaper fax only models (the fax part is fine) or upgrade to a machine from another manufacturer - ours is so bad in use that we have replaced it with an old spare Sharp machine with thermal paper. At least the answerphone part of that works....

4.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic's GF-1 - some flaws, but still a diamond., 1 Dec. 2009
The GF-1 is as small as you could reasonably expect and pleasing to use. The 20mm lens is as sharp as they say, though personally I find it noisy in use after Canon's USM lenses and the lack of an image stabiliser mode in a lens this costly is a shame - it seems the programme mode is overly biased towards wide open apertures to cope, too. However, the minute (though not that light) GF-1 passes its first key test, because it has easily travelled everywhere with me. Response is everything you cannot expect from a compact. Image quality is right up there, at least with the kit lenses, with impressive resolution. The new software update should fix some slight auto white balance issues, but otherwise my images have been excellent. Not so good is the accessory electronic viewfinder, which lacks resolution and is only really useful for general aiming on a bright day. Judging by the large apparent size of the Olympus Pen 2 optional EVF, Panasonic wanted to keep the size of theirs down, and took the quality penalty as a trade off. The screen on the camera, though, is up to most lighting conditions and is easy to see at an angle, so should be enough for most people. General handling is very good, especially if you're used to Pansonic or Leica compacts, but even if you migrate from other makes the menu system won't take long to pick up. I really like the choice of image sizes - there's a 1:1 mode which I'm using, and also 16:9 which works beautifully with Apple TV/widescreen HDTV combinations to enable you to look at images full screen. HD movies with the 20mm lens haven't been a success so far but there's a new update for the lens and I haven't tested that yet. Overall, expensive, good, best in class at the moment and surely, the start of something big (or should that be, small?) in camera design.
