Very poor reliability. These come with a 10 year guarantee but we have had 15 failed units in as many months.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting warnings on packaging, 17 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This seems to work at close range, will even differentiate which side of a cable is carrying the live wires.
However, the instructions on the packet include a few choice phrases:

Do not use if .... tester can ont work normally (sic)
if no any indecation, voltage could still be exist (sic)
Do not rely on this Unit with shielded wire
The finger of the oppereter (sic) should be away from the white part of the tester in each opperation.(sic)
When the battery is going to be exhausted, the unit will not work normally. please replace new battery in time

Doesn't exactly instill confidence.

Bought this when it was the only black Ipod lead around.
It works OK but the plastic on the IPod plug comes apart on a regular basis. Will try a different lead next time.

Not much else to say really...

5.0 out of 5 stars Good little netbook, 19 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Am very pleased with this netbook, have had it for a couple of months now and it is working well.
The battery life is brilliant, the screen is nice and the keyboard is nice to use.
The upgrade to 2Gb ram is easy and worth it.
It is quite happily running Windows 7 starter and Office 2010.
Startup time is good. Program starting is noticably slower than a desktop but that is the trade-off for the battery life. Not a problem in practice.

1.0 out of 5 stars Failed, 19 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This sonic distance measure is now making its way back to Amazon having stopped working after 2 weeks.
While it did work it was not very good. The laser pointer does not mean that the targetting of the measurement is any good. It picks up reflections off any nearer object, even if they are way off the line you are supposedly measuring along. Hard to know when you are getting accurate measurements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just fine, 24 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a workhorse card which does exactly what it says on the tin.

Have had mine for a couple of years now with no problems. (Have previously had XD cards wipe themselves in hot weather).

Things have now moved on with faster cards and even the likes of Canon seem to be moving to other card formats. But if this is what your camera uses...

5.0 out of 5 stars A good workout, 24 Jan. 2009
This is a 'first look' review.
This program has been getting rave reviews on Amazon.com and I can see why. I think I am going to get tough workouts for a long time to come.

First, lets be clear, the emphasis of My Fitness Coach is very different to that of Wii Fit.

Wii Fit is based around measuring and giving realtime feedback on your actions - balance, timing and number of reps - via the fit board and the Wii-mote. This suits itself to yoga, balance games and certain aerobic exercises such as hula-hoop and boxing.

My fitness coach doesn't bother with this at all. Instead you follow the avatar through a sequence of exercises much like doing an exercise DVD. It is up to you to be a grown up and actually do the exercises in time. This suits itself to a wider range of aerobic and toning exercises, which is what you get.
At the end of each segment you are asked whether the segment was too easy, just right or too strenuous (this is the only time you actually pick up the Wii-mote). Future workout sessions are adjusted according to your answers.

What makes this much better than an exercise video is the constant variation and evolution of individual exercises within a workout. You set your short and long term focus (cardio, upper body etc) the time you want to workout for today, and what equipment you have available(dumbells, a step board, and balance ball). The workouts change accordingly.

Overall, the Wii-fit was fun and a good starting point, but I think that My Fitness Coach will give me a much better, and better coordinated, aerobic workout.

4.0 out of 5 stars Barnstorming, 23 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Woman Of The House (Audio CD)
Cherish the Ladies are a new discovery for me and I'm glad I happened across this album.
It is about 50% barnstorming instrumental numbers from the band and 50% songs featuring their guests (although it is a little hard to figure out exactly who is doing what from the sleeve notes).
My only disappointment was with 'Bogie's Bonnie Belle' which I have heard done better elsewhere (A highly personal opinion!!)
For those who don't know, Cherish the Ladies are an Irish American group concentrating on traditional Irish music.
Well worth a listen.
