Logitech K480 Multi Device Bluetooth Keyboard for PC, Smartphone and Tablet (QWERTY) - White
Logitech K480 Multi Device Bluetooth Keyboard for PC, Smartphone and Tablet (QWERTY) - White
Price: £49.58

5.0 out of 5 stars The best three-for-one keyboard., 31 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had this for some time now, and it's still in great working order, and has never let me down. The keyboard is very nice to use, feels solidly built and works like a charm with up to three devices. The rubberized slot at the top holds any iPad (except the large Pro) snugly in either portrait or landscape mode. There are cheaper devices out there, and a few that are more expensive, but this model hits the sweet spot and will suit most users who regularly need to switch between a Mac/ PC and iPad.


Sea Angling Mullet fishing made easy (Target species)
Sea Angling Mullet fishing made easy (Target species)
by Mr David A Weaver
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.31

5.0 out of 5 stars Mullet expertise, for seasoned fisher-folk., 31 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very slim volume, which initially disappointed.However, this was bought as a gift for a fishing fanatic, who promptly declared it a seriously good book, written by someone who really knows what they are talking about. Apparently books giving the specific kind of detail found her are few and far between. So, for the mullet fanciers out there, it's a good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good gizmo...if you can wait., 31 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good gizmo, if a little fiddly to set up. Feels reasonably well made, and comes with plenty of supplies to get your going in the garden. This is also one of those products which comes from China, a fact which Amazon chooses to not to make clear. So delivery will typically take longer than locally sourced items.

5.0 out of 5 stars Declassified: The man who made UFO's., 31 Jan. 2017
Those readers familiar with Harbinson's epic 'Projekt Saucer' series and stand-alone factual work Project UFO: The Case For Man-Made Flying Saucers will revel in this new work. Gathering together material previously published in the series, plus new inclusions, makes 'The Wilson Papers' an essential buy for those wanting to complete their collection. The work may also be of interest to newcomers curious to discover the iconic lead character in a series that included an internationally best-selling novel. A novel that contained more than few grains of terrifying truth as to what may actually have happened concerning Nazi flying saucers

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb sound, now give us the visuals., 25 Nov. 2016
Bought for me as an early xmas gift, this was more than I expected in terms of sound quality. Although, given the perfectionist nature of Kate Bush, I shouldn't have been surprised. As someone who attended 'Before The Dawn' it does bring back memories of the most fantastical gig I've ever seen, including the likes of Bowie and Prince. My partner, the lovely Elaine, felt the tangible sense of love in the theater when Kate finally appeared...after a 35 year wait. Getting 'Never Be Mine' which was among my favourite mid career songs was a lovely bonus, and as a whole this is probably the best live CD ever made.

The single negative is that KB is holding back the video. Before the Dawn was a such a visual spectacular, and she must realise that millions of fans couldn't get tickets. Also, the thousands who did attend went along with her request not to film it because we knew she was going to do the job. Knowing that there is a record, but it;s being withheld is frustrating and irritating. Yes, Kate, we know there were only two cameras and none on stage, but we don't care. Just sell us the other half, please.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not send alerts to e-mail address, 30 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite what is claimed and what has been said by Amazon reviewers, this camera is a nightmare to set up. I have 20+ years of IT experience,build my own PC's and troubleshoot problems for others, yet in 4 hours I could not coax this thing to send a JPG to any e-mail address, or record motion detection to an SD card. All I want is a camera that can do the above. I thought spending almost £100 would be enough to get that, but obviously not. Oh, and the App Store app for this is total crap. So, it's being returned for a full refund, and my search for a decent security camera continues.

2.0 out of 5 stars Does not send e-mail or FTP, 10 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This camera has a very nice picture and is good as a baby monitor. It is totally useless if you expect it to send pictures of motion capture via e-mail or to an FTP location. I have many years of expertise in IT, and in conjunction with the techs at my ISP, Zen, have wasted hours trying to get this junk to do what it claims it can do. Use of a standard POP3 e-mail address almost always timed out,or 'still waitings' as the makers term it, and when it does register no image is ever sent to the recipient address. Try it with a G-Mail account, and Google flags the camera as insecure and won't even provide a way to take a chance with the settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bargain, at Amazon Warehouse prices, 25 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Buying this camera via an Amazon Warehouse deal solved a problem for me. Basically, I wanted to upgrade my NEX 5 and still use the same e-mount lenses, but didn't like the price Sony were asking. The deal I chose was listed as very good with no cosmetic imperfections and tested as being in full working order. This is one below the 'as new' category, which as far as I can tell means that the box it comes in is also perfect. The box didn't matter so much to me, so I took the chance, trusting that the 30 day returns Amazon backing would allow me to test the camera very well. Sure enough, it arrived in great condition and I took it on holiday to Madeira, a sub-tropical paradise with plenty of things to photograph in a variety of conditions.

Initially, I found the camera less familiar than I'd expected. But, quickly came to terms with the changes, most of which were for the better. The frustrating menu system of the Nex series has gone, replaced by something much more intuitive, although occasionally still difficult to find the odd item. The kit lens that comes with the model I bought (prospective buyers should take care that they are buying a model WITH the lens included) soon proved to be excellent in general use. Since returning home I've also tested it with a Sony E-Mount Macro lens, with spectacular results. The BIONZ processing engine combined with 24 megapixels and a superior-auto setting really helps an enthusiastic snapper produce better results almost without effort. And if you do put in the effort, using manually tweaked settings, this little camera can produce shots that easily rival those of the much more expensive Sony DSLR's, and in some respects out spec them. The camera is also really light, conformable in small to medium sized hands, and feels well made. Carrying it on a strap around my neck was no effort at all. So, there's lots to like here, and for those upgrading from the NEX series, this model is the best of the bunch IMHO. I say that because the A5000 model has lesser features and the A6000 model not that much more, yet at a huge difference in price. The A5100 models use the same basic tech spec as the A6000, but with auto settings left intact for those who, like me, prefer them under most circumstances. The one thing that may be a deciding issue for some is this model's lack of a viewfinder. But, if you're happy to take the rear screen settings off manual, so that you can see it well in bright sunlight, then this isn't really a big problem most of the time. For sure, paying out a lot more for a model with a viewfinder was not something I was willing to do.

There are a few negatives. Firstly, Sony has scrimped on value by not supplying a lens hood and external battery charger, as it did with the NEX 5 model. This means that unless you buy your own, as I did, you'll need to plug the camera in to a power source every time the battery runs out. Obviously, this is no use at all in the field. As for the lens hood, this is what I consider to be a design flaw, which Sony has expanded throughout its recent range. It used to be the case that a filter, such as a UV shield, could be attached to help and protect the lens, and the lens hood attached via a separate fixing, which could be reversed for storage. Now, on the A5100 and other models, the only way to attach a lens hood and a filter at the same time, is to screw the lens hood into the filter. What this does is you are not VERY careful, is accidentally over tighten the filter thread, making is almost impossible to remove with finger pressure alone. If this happens to you a way out is to reattach the lens hood, and putting slight pressure on it an an angle, use the leverage to begin unscrewing the filter. But do take care, as too much pressure could easily crack the filter and possibly damage the lens. Proceed at your own risk.

So, in summary this is an excellent buy for those upgrading from a NEX camera, or wishing to buy into Sony's A series mirrorless compact cameras for the first time. But, only at Amazon Warehouse prices. I paid just over £259 for this with the kit lens. I would not have paid the £400 plus that Sony want for a brand new model.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improves shots and protects the lens, 24 Jun. 2015

As any photographer with even a tiny bit of experience knows, a UV filter helps produce better pictures, and doubles up as a lens guard. So if by some misfortune you turn too quickly and the camera hits something hard, it's the filter that cracks not your expensive lens.The price here is fair, and the quality of the filter good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, mostly., 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After discovering that Sony were too mean to include a lens hood with their A5100 camera (unlike the Nex 5 it replaced) I sourced this model. It does the job, screwing into the lens directly or into the thread of a filter. I came to regard this as a Sony design flaw, because it is oh so easy to over tighten the hood, thus making any filter attached below it very difficult to remove with finger pressure alone. If that happens to you, one option is to reattach the hood, and applying gentle pressure at an angle, twist carefully. The filter should then free up for removal/ cleaning. Proceed at your own risk, as too much pressure could crack the filter and possibly damage the lens. The hood itself does the job, but the supplied lens cap is way too big for a Sony A5100,and the supplied adapter is very easy to jam on the poorly made thread. I would've preferred a standard size lens cap, and better construction.
