Motorola Xoom 10.1 inch Android Tablet (1GB RAM, 3&hellip by Motorola
2.0 out of 5 stars look elswhere, 11 Jan 2014
I've had my XOOM for some time and I'm sorry Motorola but it isn,'t good. The build is good but the software and browser is pants. I find myself exasperated by it at every turn. I have flung it across the floor more times than I care to remember. The keyboard legs constantly and most times doesn't even respond to touch. Games are good but this is more due to Android than the tablet. The screen resolution is well behind the likes of the I pad and is blurry on video playback. I have to only give it 5 out of 10. If I were looking for another tablet which I will be soon it will not be a Motorola. I cannot recommend it to anyone as I know you will be disappointed.Sorry Motorola you have come up… Read more

The characters are believable and you genuinely care for all of them and want them to survive the terror… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars So simple,so effective, 23 April 2012
I recently bought a nice Samsung WB690 18x zoom compact camera. I have a few cases but the hard side case that fitted my two previous cameras was just too small for the new one so the hunt for a new case began. Now, Amazon is always my first port of call these days for anything so I had a look. I stumbled across this case and at 3.00 I thought "What the heck,if it doesn't fit I'll stick it on the well known auction site and probably get my money back" so I took a punt. I'm so glad I did as it is perfect for my needs. It isn't a case it's more a camera wrap as that is what it does, wraps around the body of the camera and closes with velcro, nice and snug. When I unpacked it I first thought… Read more
