Mustek ScanExpress A3 1200S Flatbed Scanner

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, I'd buy it again., 13 July 2017

Pro: super scanner, fast and great images.

Con: Mustek-specific software. Trivial control and zero integration with other software: cannot use it with VueScan.


Strategy: The Logic of War and Peace
Strategy: The Logic of War and Peace
by E Luttwak
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Luttwak, rather late for the Cold war. Still absorbing., 13 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating view of and approach to strategy. Critical to moving beyond the "who did what to whom and how" school of military history because it gives you a structure permitting you to investigate "why".

Luttwak's quite wrong about some trivial historical issues and misses some opportunities to reinforce his points with others, none of this detracts from a most valuable book.

I wish this had been on the Birmingham WW-I MA course reading list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collapsed after two months use, 9 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Minimal but adequate assembly instructions. Works well in dry well-packed soil (haven't tried it on anything else). Best to wear goggles. Very light: having used an enormous petrol-driven beast in the past I was concerned that this might be very strenuous to use (I am 71). It isn't. It's a piece of cake. I only wish I'd bought this years ago (rather than spend the same money renting the enormous petrol-driven beast).

Having now used it for several weeks I must add that the rear wheel is only for transport purposes (you can easily leave to off and carry the machine by hand) and the tines can bend if they hit large stones or bricks (they can also easily be bent back).

The casing has cracked today. The machine has to be returned within a month to obtain a replacement our refund. This was not clear when I bought it. The machine will need to be run using a duct tape wrapping which will not last.

Conclusion: not robust enough for a small garden.

3.0 out of 5 stars Head good, legs awful, 25 Jun. 2017

An excellent head and controls let down by an appallingly weak and thus wobbly tripod. Buy a better set of legs and mount the head on the, or simply move the remote control arm to en entirely better tripod.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this., 28 Nov. 2016

Lasted 18 months and eventually gave up with the lid just barely moving more than 10 cm. The alternatives were: but a new lid unit and wait another 18 months or buy something new and guaranteed for 10 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far so good, 28 Nov. 2016

This replaces a larger bin by "Tower" which collapsed after 18 months. This has a 10-year guarantee. It is very neat and works every time.

Forgive my cynicism but once bitten twice shy. I'll update this in a year's time.
