5.0 out of 5 stars Smart, functional, cool, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This fits the iPad Air perfectly, with holes in the right places for all the ports and buttons. It is well designed and made to a high quality standard from high quality materials. The magnetic closure is particularly impressive. And it looks good. Cool. (I have since bought a second one, for a second iPad Air - can't say more than that.)

Malta, Gozo and Comino Walks and Car Tours (Landscapes Series)

5.0 out of 5 stars Long time user, 24 Feb 2013
We have owned a series of these guides to Malta and Gozo and have walked every walk, many several times. The maps and descriptions are clear and accurate - the only times we have had a significant problem has been when we have failed to make use of the Sunflower update service (which posts changes to the current edition on line). The clarity of the maps and the way they relate to the text is especially good - although, as with all guide books, you get the best results by reading the two together. Their recommendation to purchase a dog scarer is an example of the good practical advice in these guides, and one that we have found especially usefull!

2.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment, 5 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Five stars for tough construction, but it loses three stars for the following reasons:
1) Even though it is sold as suitable for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ62, it is massively too big for the camera and unnecessarily bulky. It fits the camera like a suitcase or bucket would fit the camera. Probably I could fit two cameras inside it. I want something that will fit neatly on my waistbelt (or stow in my rucksack) and maybe carry a spare battery and a UV filter in the side pocket. But this case seems to be designed to carry some big accessory like a spare telephoto lens - and the DMC-FZ62 is a bridge camera and doesn't have spare lenses. I don't want to have to carry this massive bag full of fresh air.
2) The picture makes it look as if a clip buckle on the front gives quick access to the camera. It doesn't. It's just a flap that goes nowhere. Daft design.
3) The way into the case is actually via a pair of zips on the top, which have to be pulled round awkwardly close to the body when wearing it on the belt. And there is no rain-protection flap over this very important zip. More daft design. They would have done much better to have used the clip buckle to secure a top to the bag, with rain-protecting edges that come down over the body of the bag, and done away with the zips.

Should I return it? Thought seriously about that. But I couldn't find another case that really provides a close fit to the camera - the DMC-FZ62 is too big to go in a compact camera pouch, and to small for cases like this one. So there is a gap in the market... anyone out there like to fill it? Meanwhile I'll keep this bag, with all its faults, because I can't find anything better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Water timer, 4 Aug 2009

Does what it says on the box. Provdes reliable and easy to program watering control, and the ability to review what the current watering program actually is (a big advantage over programmers set with a dial). Only minor problem is that the time unit for setting the duration of each watering is not clear. I thought it was minutes and seconds, but in fact it is hours and minutes. As a result, I unintentionally set the thing to water for ten hours and flooded the greenhouse.... But I have forgiven it and would certainly buy the same again if I needed another water controller.
