4.0 out of 5 stars Worth considering, 1 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was brought from Amazon and not from Amazon marketplace sellers. It is the original Microsoft OEM version of Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. Inside the pack there is a Microsoft Windows 7 Pro 64-bit install disc and the COA (Certificate Of Authenticity) Label.

I used it to upgraded my old Vista desktop computer by installing it on a new SSD so I didn't have to worry about copying/backing up data from the old hard drive as it became the secondary drive.

It was a simple procedure to open up my computer and plug in my new drive. I entered BIOS settings and set boot up from optical drive and activated the AHCI setting (only if you install a ssd). Then save and exit the BIOS settings and waited for my computer to start up (make sure you have the install disc in your optical drive).

The on screen instructions were simple to follow and I entered the serial number when asked (see COA Label). After disc installation, I used windows update, there were over 180 critical/important fixes. The whole thing took about an hour.

I find Windows 7 to be way better than Vista (and Win 8.1) so it was a worthwhile upgrade and my computer should have a few more years of useful life.

4.0 out of 5 stars GSM 900/1800Mhz, 15 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The main feature of this lower end phone (GSM 900/1800MHz) is its ability to use 2 sims at the same time. It also supports 2G data so you could check your emails or browsing the internet with its nokia web browser but it is slow compared to 3G and 4G technologies. It has bluetooth built-in.

It has a micro-USB connector, a headset connector and a 2.0mm charger connector. Included in the box is a charger and headphones but no micro-USB cable. There's a keylock button on the side of the phone. The first sim goes inside under the battery and rear plastic cover while the second sim is slotted in at the side of the phone and is hot-swappable. The phone supports up to 32GB MicroSD cards but it is not necessary to have one in the phone for it to work. You would need a microSD card if you want more storage for music, photos, etc. as the built-in phone memory (64MB) is quite small and mostly used up already.

The built-in 2MP camera has no flash and no cover to keep the dirt off the lens, its shutter is operated using the touchscreen. The quality of the photos are a bit disappointing and required good lighting to produce acceptable photos. There is also basic video recording at 176x144 pixels.

The touchscreen responds reasonably well for such a basic model. The Nokia OS user interface is fairly basic and straight forward but like all new things you still need to get used to it. It is reasonably easy enough to use without constantly refering to the manual. You can find the standard nokia os features such as mp3 player, FM radio, voice recording, calender, alarm, etc. included.

A negative is that there is no option to set different tones for each sim so you have to look at the display to know which one is receiving a call. Both sims are active to receive calls and messages when you are not using the phone for a call. You can choose which sim to use to call or send from.

It is a light phone as it is all plastic but it is well made. Overall it is a good quality phone at a good price and one that is well worth considering if you need a dual sim phone with bluetooth connectivity.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 3 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is labelled "Glasses Cleaning Cloth" but I found it to be poor in cleaning glasses. It tended to smudge dirt around the lens instead of wiping it off. Totally useless and not recommended for cleaning glasses.

A good basic black coloured 3 metre extension cable of reasonable quality which was offered at a good price. This is a no frills item that does what it is suppose to do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice quality case, 3 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a black watch case suitable for up to 8 watches. It is a well made, good quality product. It is only suitable for watches that can be laid flat and with a diameter of 53mm or less (including crown/winder). It is not really for displaying watches because when it is closed and zipped you cannot see the contents. It is a good size for travel or putting away in a safe (or other secure place).

4.0 out of 5 stars functional, 9 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a practical pivoting car charger with 2 usb slots so you can charge 2 items at the same time. So far it works in a Clio which a number of other brands seem to have trouble with. It is not the best looking but I think its better to work than just look good and not function at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little known brand, 2 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Revue Thommen is a little known brand of swiss watches. This watch is an automatic which uses the Valjoux 7750 movement. The stainless steel case and bracelet has a shiny polished finish. The white dial is simple, clean and easy to read (maybe too simple/plain for some). The case back is transparent so you can enjoy the watch movement. Operation and accuracy is typical of a Valjoux 7750 automatic movement. It has good build quality. The bracelet style is a bit basic but adequate and I would have prefered a push button clasp. Overall this watch looks good and is well worth the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars standard, 25 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was a standard battery that comes in the standard white and not black as shown in the picture. It offers the same performance and reliability as the one that originally comes with the phone so there shouldn't be any surprises. It is a good way to extend the life of an older phone and it is still a good phone if you just need a "phone" and not all the extras you get now with new mobiles.

3.0 out of 5 stars protective case, 24 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a plastic "hard" case with compartments for 5 UMDs and 2 memory slots. It provides good protection and can easily cope with been thrown in a backpack and carried around. The main problem with this product is that the slots for the memory is in a position that makes it difficult to use.
