5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - this one really works, 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fits very well, great colours (I got indigo, a lovely deep blue), the stand doesn't fall over and doesn't come unfolded, the magnetic on-off works every time when you open/close the cover, but doesn't turn the tablet off when you fold the cover back to hold one-handed - in short it doesn't seem to have the failings a lot of reviews for other Nexus 7 cases complain about, so I am really pleased with it. In this case it was well worth spending a little bit extra to get something that works as it is supposed to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fire retardant lining, so smaller inside than you think, 4 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because I needed a lockable box 9.5mm deep inside. The product description said the depth was 10.6cm, and I assumed (rightly) this was the external dimension, and that inside it would be deep enough for me. What the product details did not mention is that the box is lined with a fire retardant material. This was a bonus BUT as a result internal dimensions are only 8.5cm deep x 19cm wide by 30cm long. So apart from the depth problem, as another reviewer pointed out you can't fit A4 papers in without curling them up or folding them. So overall, a nice box, good value, reasonable lock, but not big enough inside for me. (Why don't the sellers tell us the inside dimensions?)

4.0 out of 5 stars An engrossing read, 28 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this immediately after "Les trois mousquetaires", so was struck by the evolution of the four principal characters, particularly Athos who seems to have lost some his drive and initiative, and D'Artagnan who has found his. As ever, the historical setting and characters add an interesting backdrop (although apparently not historically accurate, I wouldn't know), and unlikely adventures and ingenious twists abound. There is an interesting split of the four friends into two, sometimes competing, factions, which I found odd at first, but which adds interest to the various plots and sub-plots. All in all a good read, and I will shortly embark on the final part of the trilogy, "Le Vicomte de Bragellone".

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good value, 20 Dec 2011
I researched a number of OM/4-3rds lens adaptors and it seems from reviews that they often suffer from slack fitting either on the camera body or the lens. I decided to take a chance on the Kiwifotos model, for which I could find no reviews, just because it was a bit cheaper. Well it looks and feels well-made, and fits snugly on both my E-30 body and my 135mm OM lens, so I am very pleased. The only small downside is that my OM lens is focused beyond infinity at its focus stop - very common when using most makes of adaptor, but as you have to focus manually anyway this is really not a problem - I would never rely on the infinity stop on any lens without checking focus visually. I unreservedly recommend this lens mount, and will definitely buy again if I get another OM lens - at this price there is no point in swapping the mount each time you want to change lenses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed, 11 Dec 2010
Both body and lens are a huge improvement over the E-510 and kit lenses which I have used for three years. Fast focusing, much improved dynamic range, faster burst mode and the flippy LCD screen are what make this an ecellent upgrade, and the quality of the lens is a revelation, very sharp at all focal lengths, and very good in low light. The body also makes using my other lenses easier to use in terms of focusing speed.

3.0 out of 5 stars It looks good but..., 3 Nov 2010
...after a few uses, the rivet holding the two arms together came apart. This is quite pricy for a traditional nutcracker, so it's disppointing that it wasn't assembled with more care. Fortunately a bang with a hammer re-set the rivet, and it's now ok. Upsides are that it does look classy, and being made of stainless steel (apparently) it should outlast the several alloy nutcrackers we have broken whilst cracking almonds.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit fiddly, 3 Nov 2010
A bit fiddly to get it square and the right size, and it can change in width as you slide it in and out of the oven, as the four spring-loaded wedges don't really hold the sliding sides tight enough (in fact one of the wedges came out, but was easy to push back in). But it works, and as long as you check that it's fully extended once it's inside the oven, and can't fall off the oven shelf supports, it's fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 18 Dec 2009
Easy to get working if you already have a satellite cable feed and a decent aerial signal. Both Freesat and Freeview tuners set themselves up almost automatically. A bit fiddly to get Sky News set up on Freesat (it's not on Freesat's EPG, so that's not the TV's fault). Very impressed with the picture quality, very sharp and bright, and when you select BBC HD channel the detail is stunning. The set has a very wide viewing angle, much better than I expected, so you can sit a lot of people round this set, although on HD it's tempting to sit right in front of it about 3 feet away to enjoy the beautiful pictures. I unreservedly recommend it.
