My second purchase of an excellent product. It is very discreet, lacking a camera manufacturer's name, and the stretchiness makes light work of even a heavy camera/lens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality at a great price!, 18 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple to install as a replacement for an old webcam and generates a great quality image. It even told me that my old USB extension lead was slowing it down, so I replaced it with a USB2 lead and it is now happy with its connection. It's nice when people say "Hey, you've got a new webcam!" - the difference in quality is very marked.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sounded good, looked good, but useless., 4 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This came with with a moulded US plug, which I replaced with a UK plug - and it popped as soon as I switched it on. Presumably there was some electronics inside the moulded plug, but there was no label or warning against changing it to fit a UK mains socket. It was described as 110-220V, so surely a UK order should be supplied with a UK mains plug or a suitable adapter.

5.0 out of 5 stars An instant hit!, 26 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted something to take a 3Ĺ year old learner on beyond a 'noodle'. Although the noodle was fine, it restricted his arm movements and was a very obvious support. The fin has just enough buoyancy to ensure that he will float, but it leaves him rather lower in the water than he really likes and it is out of his sight - so he feels the need to make some effort.

As he gains confidence in the water and begins to swim (rather than paddle) the fin will be further out of the water and will offer him less support, so it will gradually become redundant. Seems to offer a perfect transition, and playing 'sharks' is FUN!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product; does what it should, 18 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Glad to see that cassette players are still available. This model is very light (running of the mains lead) and easy to use. My only concern is over the small mains jack that seems somewhat exposed halfway down one side - I had expected to find a standard flat 2-pin connector. It hasn't caused any issues yet, but I always handle the machine very carefully just in case.


Moocow, Inflatable Zimmer Frame, Silver / Grey
Moocow, Inflatable Zimmer Frame, Silver / Grey
Offered by ALADDIN'S CAVE
Price: £5.20

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I had dared to hope!, 20 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are quite a few similar products available at a wide range of prices, so it was hard to know how much to pay to get something that would inflate to resemble a zimmer! The illustrations looked very rectangular and very straight, but I suspected that they might not quite match this in practice. This model inflated easily and looked the part - it certainly couldn't be confused with a real zimmer frame, but there was no doubting what it was supposed to be. Great as a birthday party surprise!


The Lost Fens: England's Greatest Ecological Disaster

3.0 out of 5 stars Heavy going, but worth persevering, 20 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a scholarly tome, full of detail and descriptions of various scenes and environments, and is not an easy read. However, it's worth 'hanging in there' - skimming a bit if the succession of lists and numbers of wildfowl collected for various historic feasts becomes a bit dreary - for there are plenty of interesting nuggets along the way. I've only managed to get halfway through the book so far, and I confess that I do mark the end of each chapter as a target to be achieved as I go, but I'm hoping that the story of the drainage of the fens will be a bit more gripping.
