1.0 out of 5 stars Nil points - NO stars!!, 26 July 2014
This review is from: Zyliss Mandolin (Kitchen & Home)
NO stars - what a waste of money, effort, veggies and bad language. I have tried and tried but have never managed to julienne one single thing! All that money - down the drain! Had to put one star to get it on 'Review'

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bit of kit, 8 Jan. 2012
Easy to attach to the Canon 7D LCD screen and looks great with no degradation of the image.
Very neat and you hardly notice this screen protector when in place.
Have always put off buying a screen protector - " I am always careful" but shortly off to the mountains and deserts of Morocco = peace of mind!

Billion BiPAC 7800N Dual WAN ADSL2+/Broadband Wireless-N Gigabit Firewall Modem Router

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent kit, 5 Jan. 2012
My previous wireless routers have been a belkin and more recently netgear (DG834GT). Struggled with both. Netgear had to be rebooted nearly every day - drove my wife mad using laptop and iPad.
The billion bipac has worked perfectly for the last few weeks without a single reboot. The wireless range has improved and speed tests are also up on the netgear kit.
Previous good reviews are correct. A great wireless router. Really pleased and highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good bit of kit - BUT....., 31 Oct. 2010
Good kit and works well but a couple of comments worth making.
Arrived in box with no instructions - except general maintenance/safety leaflet - and there is nothing on Manfrotto's website except their Spare Parts diagram.
OK - but there are reversable screw threads that had me scratching my head for a while before I worked out how you extract the brass connector at the head of the unit and turn it around - using another brass fitting located in the base.
The spring loaded bolt at the top of the unit crossed its thread (in the soft aluminium) the first time I removed it and screwed it back (to change the head fitting) and luckily I had a tap and die set to repair the damage. I didn't put much pressure on it to cause the problem - it bolts through at an angle (not 90degrees) which does not help in getting it lined up.
But it works well and apart from above is a quality bit of kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Look no further - the 7D guide of choice, 28 Oct. 2010
This is an excellent guide to the 7D. Clear, concise and very well illustrated.
My previous guide (for the 40D) was Canon EOS 40D Digital Field Guide [Paperback]
Charlotte K. Lowrie which was ok but not a patch on David Busch's work. (I have not seen her 7D Guide)
For a beginner to someone with a bit of experience - he covers the lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best tidal atlas ever!, 29 Jan. 2009
Been using the Michael Reeve-Fowkes Atlas for years. Excellent for passage planning/tidal vectors and the easiest way to get tidal heights at secondary ports (forget all the complicated calculations!) Just bought a new one to replace my original - worn out after 12 years of use!

3.0 out of 5 stars Charts out of date!, 29 Jan. 2009
I bought this set of Solent charts just prior to a Yachtmaster Exam - I needed accurate up to date charts! Some were found to be years out of date! Be aware that every chart will need amending from data on Imray's Internet site and the task took 4 to 5 hours of solid work. At least you get to know the charts!
