DELL BATTERY FOR VOSTRO 3400 3500 3700, REPLACES 7FJ92 4JK6R Y5XF9 6CELL P

4.0 out of 5 stars As advertised. Lasts about 2 hours active use on ..., 1 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As advertised. Lasts about 2 hours active use on my Vostro 3700 which is a power-hungry laptop. A little less than the original Dell battery when it was new.

Dvd ~ Kenneth Branagh
Price: £5.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff but rather rushed.., 14 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My favourite of the 'walking with..' DVDs. Also my 8-year-old son's fave. Only 4 starts since there are only three episodes - clearly not enough to effectively cover 300M years of evolution! Needed to have more episodes and spend more time on the early stuff eg origins of life then Cambrian explosion.

2.0 out of 5 stars A low-value statement of common sense., 14 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I run a tech team within a software business. We operate remotely so thought this book could offer some guidance on best practice etc. Despite the credentials and undoubted experience of the authors, the book seems to amount to a statement of common-sense. It needed to tackle more of the edge cases like how to tackle disciplinary issues in a remote environment. It's valuable only if you really have no clue about remote working and can't even imagine how it should be done. Hence 2 stars only.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice converter for hobbyist or semi-pro use., 14 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This converter offers good sound quality with low background noise (software should cancel that anyway). Solidly built - could withstand a gigging lifestyle. Not good enough for pro recording but you probably shouldn't be using a converter for that ! Five stars considering the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice protector., 14 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As advertised. Can be fitted with no bubbles etc. Can be tricky to line up but then so are all protectors. Smooth and satisfying in use; seems like it would be durable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great bag with room for 17" laptop and overnight clothes etc., 14 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very good bag and fits my Dell Vostro 3700 with room to spare. Plenty of compartments. Enough space for some limited wardrobe for those hand-luggage-only trips (just about fits in the overhead locker when full). Strong and seems durable so far. Comfortable to carry medium distances.
Four stars only because of the price. Product itself is five stars.

Four Steps to the Epiphany

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I've seen on technology entrepreneurship, 2 Jun. 2010
This book is a comprehensive guide to creating a technology product that sells. It reads a little like an MBA textbook and is better for it, eschewing the usual buzzwords and wit typical of this genre for clear, practical advice. Steve Blank is all over YouTube if you want to listen to some of the material before committing to the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better for developers experienced in .Net, 2 Jun. 2010
I have >10 years systems development experience but am new to .Net and C#. This book seems comprehensive but is a little too dense for those new to the platform, for whom I would recommend something with a more tutorial-based approach. Additionally some of the sections are pretty skimpy - for example the Silverlight part is only 20 (out of 1400!) pages and contains no examples of interfacing with WCF services etc.

So overall I'd say it's a well written book that's a little over-ambitious in scope and most suited to those already experienced with the .Net platform.
