Excellent trail/fell shoes but ongoing issues with Salomon's daft sizing policy - get at least half a size bigger but probably a whole size larger. If it weren't for that, it'd be 5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Great watch, 1 Jan. 2011
Well, from the previous review, I was expecting an enormous behemoth of a watch. I was pleasantly surprised that in fact, while large, it is neither huge nor heavy - about the same size as any other sports watch. The instruction manual on the other hand..... what a beast!!
Easy to set up (using the manual), easy to learn the functions and very pleasing on the eye. I wish i could have justified the extra cost of the titanium version but i am still very pleased with this one.
Other reviewers of the Titanium version have questioned the battery life. The manual is quite clear about managing battery life and if you follow this (loosely) then you will have no problem. I can imagine if you sit in a darkened room all day and night, playing with all the functions, you may struggle but it is supposed to be an outdoors watch and as such, recharges whilst in use. But like i say, i have had no problem with day to day use and battery life - i don't take the watch off to charge it during the day and it sits in a darkened room overnight.
So overall, very functional (as long as you read the manual once), very easy on the eye - great buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but does what it says, 13 Sept. 2010
It arrived and fitted my small space exactly - certainly better than a traditional washing machine would. At first sight, it is clean simple and plastic! Lots of plastic. Still it seems sturdy enough - at least the twin tub itself seems to be. Easily set up - you basically need a power supply and a drain outlet (either a sink or washing machine outlet) - note:the drain needs to be very close, the waste pipe ain't long. You also need to be near a tap or a washing machine feeder pipe unless you want to carry buckets of water to fill the thing up.
So, it works simply. Plonk your washing in the washer side with powder, liquid or those bally things that come with it and fill with appropriate amount of water (the rather unhelpful translated manual does not specify how much that is, so i just made sure the washing was covered)at the appropriate temperature. The capacity of the thing is quite impressive -the manual again does not specify a limit but all the sales blurb says 3kg dry - which it turns out is quite a good amount. Next, switch on, leave it on the timer and come back in 15 minutes, drain the tub by flicking the switch and transfer the washing to the spinner (which seems as though it may struggle to cope with 3kg of washing), spin and rinse in the spinner (5mins) and then transfer back into washing tub and fill with more water! Dead easy, back and forth you go.
You are left with a tub of spun dry and very clean clothing - it seems able to remove most if not all stains and the spinner is very effective. Depending on how much you want to wash, the whole process will take 30 - 60 mins requiring intervention every 15 mins or so.
Its obviously not as hands free as a fully automatic but is soooooo much easier, better and quicker than hand washing or going to the laundrette.
Good points - cheap, small, easy to use, cheap to run, washes well, spins well
Bad points - rubbish manual, the filling hose is woeful at best - it is full of holes and i have abandoned mine after one wash, i don't expect it to last forever but if it lasts a year or more then i will be happy!
