5.0 out of 5 stars Great little item !, 27 Oct. 2010
Excellent item, the screen is actually quite large. Setup is fairly straightforward, calibration can be a bit tricky - make sure it's set as the main monitor otherwise the calibrator won't launch on the correct screen. And use the enclosed stylus rather than a finger for this as it's more accurate.

Am using this as a controller for a media PC, is now working perfectly, be aware though that it won't work with DirectX under Windows XP - took me a while to figure this out. The manual says it's not compatible but it does work fine with DX under Windows 7.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine For The Price, 3 July 2010
Ordered this a few weeks ago, arrived quickly, am finding it a good bike, okay, it's not a carbon fibre job that you can lift up with one finger but it's doing a job for me at the moment. Only a few downsides, the front brakes are very fiddly to set up, the gears will need adjusting and I recommend getting a decent spanner set as the included tool is next to useless. Also, replace the seat if you can, the one that comes with the bike is like sitting on a razor blade !

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, 3 July 2010
Excellent item, not quite as pictured but does the job and works really well, have it fitted to a mountain bike and it's pretty solid when riding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read, 3 Jun. 2006
I don't normally read crime novels (I'm more of a sci-fi fan if I even bother reading anything these days). This book was suggested by a friend and I have to say it's excellent - what you would call a real ripping yarn.

In fact the last book I read prior to this was "The Da Vinci Code" and I have to say I preferred "Cold Granite" on almost every level.

I've just completed it in two marathon reading sessions as I literally couldn't put it down - a rare gift in a writer these days.

The characters are interesting, the subject matter (which could obviously be fairly offensive in the hands of a less skilled author) is handled sensitively and there are more than enough twists and turns in the plot to hold the interest. Some of the local references are also superb, especially the references to Rowies (I still miss having one in the morning !) - there's also a healthy streak of black humour running through the book although this is never overdone.

I lived in Aberdeen for 26 years, and yes, the description of the city has obviously been slightly exaggerated for dramatic effect but it's nowhere near as jarring as some of the previous reviews (some of whom seem unable to review a Scottish crime novel without mentioning R***s) would have you believe.

I've also just ordered the next book in the series and I look forward to further installments.

Thoroughly recommended.
