1.0 out of 5 stars Wire failed at jack in less than a month., 4 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Broken wires within the cable as it leaves the jack in less than a month, used around daily but as there is no "soft bend" protection as the wire leaves the jack and this seems to have been the point of failure.

3 sizes of isolation buds included all "soft" fit ok for the purpose, but thin so less noise reduction than would be expected.

Let you remove it form the path and drop in a push or nettle patch to rot away. at least as strong if not better than some polythene bags.

5.0 out of 5 stars Basic but that's kind of the point, 4 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SimpleRockets (App)
Great fun- it is simple (2D, limited components) and the nav systems could be polished a little (toggle to switch map & ship modes rather than on a menu, expand the staging etc) but mostly this is the limits of low memory devices and a touch screen respectively.

At it's heart works brilliantly and the core concept is great. Almost a teaser for the more fully featured PC game Kerbal Space Program.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great indroduction, 16 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Explains key commands, and options/switches, in an easy to use way. Deliberately leaves out details that won't be of use and might confuse a beginner, these can always be looked up in the man files (see the book) or googled but the key information of what commands exist and where to start is extremely useful.

Looking forward to going! The comparison of different islands is really handy as is the weather guide. Some suggested online sources for the latest info would be handy

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Handy, does the job well, 5 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good product and much cheaper then some equivalents. BEWARE many or the other ones with a similar price are NOT Waterproof.

The cover fits nicely over my Belkin Impulse Line Slim Back Pack For Notebooks Up To 17-Inch and might fit a slightly larger bag. The elastic straps with a popper or adequate for holding it in place but have come undone a few times when taking on and off, or when the cover is left in place while the bag is not being warn. This isn't a major issue as the elastic rim secures the cover fairly well on its own. While it lacks an outside pocket (handy for a light) this isn't an issue for me and for other "quick access" I've just tucked stuff (e.g. a newspaper) under the cover which has stayed secure.

Overall I would recommend it; it makes you easier to spot is easy to put on and keeps the bag dry.

You can't beat a buff for what it does, this is a replacement for a much used one that was lost and the patten is good fun.


Hama Table-Top Tripod with Removable Telescopic Tube
Hama Table-Top Tripod with Removable Telescopic Tube

4.0 out of 5 stars Great compact tripod, 23 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I spent a lot of time looking at various options for a compact tripod that could be used out and about and this fits the bill nicely.

Light weight (I didn't notice it in a thigh pocket on a 3 mile walk) but as it brings the camera up to about waist hight you can still take a group picture at a sensible level (no more balancing on a near-by wall). It comes in two sections, a "self portrait" extending arm and a table top tripod that combined to give it hight; this makes it it is quite versatile other than this so will be generally handy to have while the ball and socket head means if you do have to use it on uneven ground then you can level things out without having to prop up the legs.

It does lack any instructions but those given in other reviews help a lot. I am yet to test the build quality but it doesn't feel amazingly robust and it would be of very limited use with a heavy camera such as an SLR, the table top section would be ok for occasional use but I wouldn't recommend trying it fully extended.

My biggest criticism is the lack of a quick release attachment, but I fear this is because I've been spoiled by my gorilla pod.
