4.0 out of 5 stars Easy replacement unit, 19 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Direct replacement for unit installed. This meant I only needed the body of the alarm, which plugged straight in having removed the old one. The part came with battery ready to install. Only gripe is that the two tiny retaining screws are a pain to fit from the go of a ladder. Recommend one use a magnetized philips driver.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works fine, but software upgrade reminders a bore, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This works well, and even my Smart TV can access all our photos and videos on it, wirelessly. My big grype is that the Memeo back-up software, that comes with it, keeps popping up windows trying to get me to pay an extra $30 to upgrade, a recurrent irritant not worthy of the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just goes on and on, 8 Jan. 2014

Excellent if you're a fan, or want to give a gift to one. Additional features are a bonus too. Maybe a no-no otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive guide, 13 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This second edition is an update on the original published some 10 years ago. It has to be the most definitive source for planners, developers, landowners ,and conservationists on this complex, and often mis-understood arena.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Replacement, 13 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to use the active module to directly replace a time expired (10 year lifetime) original. Sadly no-one seems to supply the replacement part, so I just bought three of these, and switched them out in about 15 mins. Just chucked the bases away. Still cheaper than anywhere else I could find.

5.0 out of 5 stars Direct Replacement, 20 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easiest and cheapest way to renew my 10 year old Aico smoke and heat detectors. Buy these whole units and just plug the "active" detector and battery (included) parts in to original bases. No rewiring, or screwing. All 4 units plugged in and tested working within 30 minutes.


The Helford River
The Helford River

4.0 out of 5 stars For lovers of Cornwall, 10 July 2010
This review is from: The Helford River (Paperback)
C C Vyvyan brings her lyrical pre-WWII perspective on one of the most beautiful river estuaries in the UK. Her prose in this book, similar to her others, provides a glorious insight to the reader, and of course this glorious area remains very much as she describes it over half a century ago. Definitely a must for any Kurnowphile.

1.0 out of 5 stars Win XP asks me to insert a disc when I select this device, 19 Dec. 2009
Bought one of these for my niece last Xmas. She has been unable to use it on Windows or Mac. It appears to install OK, but when you select the device, Windows asks you to insert a disk into the drive. I have spent ages trawling the Web to try to find out if this can be fixed. The Pretec Website is pretty opaque regarding support. If anyone knows how to fix this I would love to know.

4.0 out of 5 stars Attitude changing, 28 Nov. 2008
I read this book in my early teens, and it totally changed my view about warfare. Before, I was consumed with the adventure and excitement of war. As I read it, the awful reality of what it means to ordinary soldiers was revealed. Barron spends the first part building up familiarity with the characters, so that, as the story progresses their individual injuries, and sometimes deaths, hit home hard. I can't say whether it has the same impact today with 24/7 news and reports from front-lines, but it totally changed my attitude in the 1960s.
