3.0 out of 5 stars Compatibility Problem, 10 Oct. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Though this camera works fine as a stand alone camera viewing through a browser and it's own software, it appears that it is not compatible with 3rd party software such as iSpy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional value, 18 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just ordered a second batch for my Canon ip4700 printer - these are exception value for money. I print and then laminate OS 1:25 000 maps from Quo mapping software for camping / walking trips in The Lake District and elsewhere and these print the high detail on OS maps and their vivid colours beautifully. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb little system, 18 Aug. 2013
After attempting to rig up my own watering system, I gave up in frustration and purchased this gadget. It takes just a short time to cut the tubing and position the drippers according to your plant pot layout but once set up the system works a treat. I went away to France for two weeks and returned to fabulous looking, healthy plants. They were in much better condition than when I do the watering manually (which is highly erratic - too much some days then no water for a few days!). Regular and controlled watering is clearly the key to healthy plants, so I left the set up for the rest of the summer even though I was at home, only needing to top up the reservoir every few days. It's the lazy person's route to a great display. I made my purchase of this device three years ago and it is still working well. I live in a hard water area but I have had no issues with scale affecting the mechanism. Note: adding plant feed is not recommended as this will attract algae growth, so partner this system with in-pot plant food tablets which are cheap to pick up from garden centres and even pound shops. I only wish they would produce one with double the capacity so I can be even lazier!

3.0 out of 5 stars Step in the right direction - but issues, 21 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So having endured international, withheld numbers and silent messages I wanted to block such calls and this phone seemed ideal. It certainly seems to identify correctly international and withheld numbers and the phone doesn't ring, but I have two issues with the device:-

1. why when I choose to block international and withheld numbers are they still directed to the answer phone? I don't get a ring but still need to clear out silent or pre-recorded messages from these numbers from my answer phone. The only solution seems to be to turn off the answer phone completely. Is there an option to say I don't want these types of blocked calls to be directed to my answer phone?

2. why can I only block 10 numbers? The devious ambulance chasers and PPI scavengers ring repeatedly using the same number and then change numbers when reported so one needs to be able to block numbers by the dozen. There is no excuse for not being able to store more than 10 as large amounts of storage is dirt cheap these days.

I may be wrong on the above 2 complaints so please correct me if in my desire to stop these calls that I have set up the phone in haste and missed some features. I am still using the phone and won't return it as it is a step in the right direction, but is sadly lacking when it could be oh so good.

What can I say - bunged it into my Samsung Galaxy SII, copied across gigabytes of music quickly and with no problems - simply fantastic value, buy one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pair of bins - brilliant value, 13 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At the price these are a fantastic piece of kit. As stated in other reviews the tripod clamp isn't the best, but is easily replaced and when mounted on a tripod they give superb views of the heavens. The satellites of Jupiter are crisp and beautiful, many of the messier objects I have observed are stunning. I have a 102mm / 4 inch refractor which is great but a real chore to set up, these bins offer speedy and portable viewing. Buy a pair!

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatly improved picture, 13 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having subscribed to TopUp TV for Sky Sports 1&2 I initially plugged in the supplied scart cable and found the picture to be very poor, with scrolling interference lines and poor resolution, especially when compared to the built in Freeview on my TV. I bought this cable due to previous reviews and the great price and have seen an amazing improvement on all Freeview channels including SS1 & SS2. It's a very heavy cable, but the shielding clearly makes a huge differene. I highly recommend this cable. Delivery was also very fast.

2.0 out of 5 stars It needs a non-Director's Cut!, 23 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What would be a completely acceptable, possible good, Bond film is ruined by nausea inducing action scences. This poor man's attempt at 'bringing Bond up to date' or 'going one better' than the Bourne films is a dismal failure. If this is the best director Marc Forster can do he should be sent to remedial film school. I only hope that there is enough raw footage for someone with some talent to re-edit and re-release this - it needs a non-Director's Cut!

5.0 out of 5 stars No frills drills!, 14 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book gives a brief overview of each verb tense and then is packed to the rafters with question after question - exactly what you need to master this essential part of any language. Verbs which change their spelling and irregular verbs are handled after the regular verbs and special consideration is made of the most important two verbs, etre and avoir. This book is such good value and does its job so well it is a shame they don't do several such books per language. One obvious tip is use a pencil - you will want to do these drills over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!, 15 April 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This blu-ray disc is simply stunning. It appears more of the footage is in HD than on Planet Earth and it shows. Some of the underwater footage, the resolution and the colour takes your breath away. An absolute bargain for 150 minutes of wonder - well done BBC.
