4.0 out of 5 stars Time to upgrade from Vista, 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very cautious to upgrade from VISTA however, finally took the plunge. The computer now runs many times faster on 8.1 however, you need to make sure your internet connection is supported PRIOR to upgrading. Although the upgrade advisor is good, it does issue rather too many warnings that applications will not run under 8.1. It is worth trying to re-install these programs anyway as over half of mine still worked.
It may be better to buy new 64-bit version as upgrade would not allow me to install 64-bit upgrade from Vista.
It would be appreciated if Microsoft valued customer loyalty and provided an incentive for some to avoid pirated copies, however, I suggest you do not hold your breath.
The Amazon price jumped up to 140+ the day after my copy arrived however, it appears to have now dropped again to reality...

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent drill, batteries can need replacement after 3 years, 20 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent drill, resilient, durable and powerful. HOWEVER, I needed to purchase this to replace the BATTERIES and CHARGER from a similar model purchased three years ago, it is cheaper to buy a NEW drill than replacement batteries and/or charger!.! The batteries are not as long lasting as others, when a battery failed it "took out" the charger...!

This is an excellent keyboard, well made and reliable. It is an OEM version and does not come with software CD. Only basic version available from Logitech website, cannot customise special keys if your use is different from the "standard" assignments.

This product is perfect from a recording perspective however, be careful if you intend printing on them. Your printer must be capable of printing this thickness of media, some do not.

This book is well-written and concise. It is not affiliated to any particular methodology and therefore establishes the principles, in a well organised book, supporting a structured approach which works.

5.0 out of 5 stars The spirit of Fred in a book, 9 Oct 2006
This well-written biography trully captures the spirit of Fred's life and I believe Fred would have liked it. This book includes some of his frustrations and many achievements. The only thing missing is smell of Fred's oil soaked cloth cap and a (couple) of pints of Guiness.
