5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent device at the £50 price point, 3 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the £34.99 I paid for this Tablet it is a bit of a bargain. It is very Apple esque and that is meant as a compliment. Straight out of the box setup was very straightforward, especially if you already have an Amazon account to connect it to. Once setup you are dropped into a home scren complete with 25 icons and a search bar. I found that for an initial setup there are too many icons. Many of these though are to entice you into using other services and in particular Amazon Prime. I would like to be able to create folders to reduce screen clutter.

Compared to the second generation Fire HD, the new operating system is much more usable and in some respects less focused towards 'content.' As I bought this device to use primarily as a reading device the performance is fine. The odd bit of internet browsing and looking at emails has not shown the device to be slow. As soon as you try to use content heavy websites or cuttting edge games, then you may be asking too much of it. But, you have to factor in the cost even at the normal £50 it is a budget device with adequate performance and screen quality. If you are going to watch videos again the more expensive HD version will give a much crisper picture. The Fire will show YouTube videos via an App (recommend YouTube.com) perfectly well and good picture quality.

To sum up - Great device for children or when light web browsing, email and Kindle reading is to be undertaken. Easy to set up and use even if a bit icon heavy. You can move, but not delete Icons (I have not found a way to as of yet), it may well be possible. The old adage you get what you pay for is true to a point, although the matt black case and buttons have a more expensive feel and the tablet certainly feels weighty in your hand.

Interesting read, drawn in by the title and my love of wine... Turned out to be quite a well written and entertaining story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful, 29 Jun. 2013
A must have adaptor if you have newer and older Apple gadgets with different sockets. I can see Apples's rational, but let's face it, we would of complained whenever they changed the sockets used. At least with this adaptor makes it less of a pain!

1.0 out of 5 stars Failed, 10 Jun. 2013
Sadly the one I got sent work for about a week and after that I had to constantly wiggle the cable to get it to work, ordered another one from a different supplier and that has been OK so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Apple must have, 31 May 2013
Having an iPad Mini as well as an older iPad and iPhone with a older type adaptors and several of the older leads this means I can easily charge and connect my iPad mini using existing leads be it in the car or at work. Very useful adaptor and a must have if you have older and newer type Apple devices. Delivery was quick and price is very competitive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rom-Com, 5 Mar. 2013
A rom-com from the male side, the male version of "chick-lit" without the soppy romance and with a great deal of awkward moments. American Pie, Bridget Jones, I could compare it all day but it's a very good book and needs to be read to be understood.

2.0 out of 5 stars Quite good for the price if slightly repetative, 1 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Initially I thought this game was great, graphics are decent enough and for the money offered quite good value. My issues is that it started to become a bit too repetitive, in particular the actual fighting, it is not really a free roam game more a series of action sequences you have to complete that then get broken up with in game video showing you what your button presses have caused. My single biggest issue with the game though was that it either would not load or kept on freezing after a short time. I have a Kindle HD Fire with the latest updates, so was a little unhappy with that.
