4.0 out of 5 stars Great entry recording device., Feb. 26 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A small device, that's light and easy to use. Some of the buttons don't feel too solid and the device is plastic, so some care will be needed.
Note, this is the V2 of the device ( that has USB 3 support ) and can be used as a USB mic. Also included is Cubase LE7 and Wavelb LE8 software.

It comes with a 2GB card, but with a 32GB SDHC card ( that's the max it can read). The max recording file size is 2GB, which is 1 hour at 24/96 WAV or 14 hours at 320 MP3

In order to make the best of the device, buying the Zoom ZH1AP with case, usb cable, stand, AC power, wind muffler + is recommended

Very funny comparison to Male vs Female, the graphics are great and situations one can related to. My wife and I had a great laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witness the beauty of the Earth through Art's photos, Feb. 18 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Amazing book even taking into consideration Art's previous releases. The picture quality is superb, the vibrancy of the colour shimmers on the page. It's grouped nicely into themed sections and the pictures flow well. Some good narrative as well. Just a note, be careful when you expand the 2 page fold out that you put them back carefully.

If you are a fan of Art's work this is a must. If you a fan of photography this is a must. There aren't that many photographers who have books covering 5 decades of their work. Yes, I enjoyed this book !

With one AA battery, more than enough for a back up light in the car. Solid build, can't complain for $11

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but room for improvement, Feb. 17 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good :
1) As a guide it is good for seeing trends in activity and for motivation.
2) The display is clear.
3) Not sure how the button will do over time as it doesn’t fell super robust.
4) Charge time lasts 4/5 days

Things that need work :
1) During the setup, it needs to identify the dominant hand and the length of your stride, these shouldn’t be things you find hidden in the settings after setup.
2) The strap isn’t the greatest, sure it’s more secure than magnets, but a ‘deployment clasp’ (similar to Rubber straps on some Tag’s ) would be less fiddly and you can consistently set the size – which would help with the Heart Rate measurement.
3) If you talk with your hands, you will walk kms a day… but if you don’t swing your arms when walking you walk less than you actually did. The accuracy needs some work, here’s hoping a firmware fix can be done in the future.
4) The green light for measuring pulse is annoying at night, it can light up a dark room.
5) The XL size is only available direct from Fitbit.
6) Different readings shown on the iPhone app vs Website, they need to be consistent. i.e. Heart Rate info is missing from the website ‘Log’ function.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, Jan. 5 2015
It is a sturdy case, you can move around the larger bin boxes and it latches well.

The only minor down side is the lack of outer seal ( the picture makes you think there should be one - grey outline on the lid ) but I can assure you there is not one and DeWalt have confirmed this. It's 'sister' Stanley Deep Organiser looks similar and claims a seal, but I can not confirm this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid pair of headphones., Dec 24 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great quality, solid headphones. They are power hungry, so you will need a good headphone output on an Amp or a dedicated headphone amp to really make them shine.

In comparison to Grado's these sound quieter, so you have to dial them up a bit more. But they have a lower noise floor. They don't add to the image and give a very neutral sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality and keeps the coffee warm for a while, Dec 24 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great product, it keeps the coffee warm for a long time and is a really solid build quality.

The reason I give it only 4 is what I think is a 'minor' design flaw ( it doesn't occur on the next size down which I also have ). The rod is about 1.5 cms too long. The reason I say this is when grinds are in the bottom, the plunger does not go all the way down, thus the lid is not 100% secure, it can move. It's not a big deal until you get to the last cup of coffee, but shortening the plunger rod would resolve this.

Note - This gives 4 decent size mugs of coffee.

A great set of xmas music that won't send you up the wall on repeated listens !

Good recordings and in the slim line CD cases, so it doesn't take up loads of room.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome show from the golden age of TV, Dec 24 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great series, that brings back great memories.

Currently at $143, this is an awesome price especially when it also includes the UV digital copies (which the non limited, does not appear to - in addition to the non film extras - car, cards etc - and its $40 more currently ! ).

Act soon before the price goes up !
