3.0 out of 5 stars Nice but not enough pictures, 6 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some nice illustrations (apart from the cover) but not enough for the children I was hoping to introduce this to. I was hoping it would be approaching a graphic novel with bundles of text but it was the other way round. Still a great book but not enough pictures to set it apart from the novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable. Definitely worth the money. Gives freedom and reassurance., 17 Nov. 2009
We bought this monitor because we had heard there were health risks linked to the DECT monitors and we therefore were only looking at analogue monitors. (Having originally bought the smaller, wireless DECT version before we researched the health risks.)

It has been fantastic and has given us far more freedom and flexibility than we could have realised. It has been integral in teaching our daughter good sleep habits, and has helped us make her more secure and independent.

Eg, We know when she is awake in the morning, as she now does not cry until she has been awake for sometimes up to an hour, and otherwise we'd be none the wiser.
We can relax knowing she's asleep in the evenings without having to have one ear listening out for any noises. Just a glance at the monitor is all that is needed.
Its also easier to work out whether noises are distress or just disgruntled movements, so we only need to go in and soothe her when its necessary (or to unhook a trapped leg or arm from the crib bars)

What really surpised us was that we actually prefer the bulkier monitor to the smaller DECT version as you can really see what is going on, from her facial expressions to the rise and fall of her stomach when she breathes.

We even used it when she was first playing in her playpen in the nursery and we would leave her for short periods to play on her own while preparing bottles, breakfast etc It meant that we could see if she started to get bored or tired and go up to interact with her before she started to cry.

The only downside to this monitor is the crackling interference associated with analogue monitors. However we have found that with adjustment we can usually get rid of most interference, and we dont use our microwave very often so that doesnt tend to be a problem.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful rubbish, 1 July 2004
This review is from: DRIV3R (Xbox) (Video Game)
Having been a fan of the first two Driver games and GTA I obviously jumped at the chance to play Driver3. Upon first inspection the game looks spectacular; beautiful city environments and cars and bikes that with their mere presence seem to beg to be taken for a ride.
However, the beauty is only skin deep. Vehicle controls are seriously erratic with terrible pop-ups and juddering stream feed. Once out of the vehicle things go from bad to worse. Merely walking around is a jerky affair which is just plain irritating and shooting is made extremely difficult by the same irratic movements that dog the vehicle controls. This is just the tip of the iceberg I'm affraid but suffice to say that playing this game becomes a chore.
I recommend you avoid this title.
