I've been riding one of these for the last year and a half after trading in my 94' ZXR750. In all honesty, for a V-Twin, i thought there would be more arm wrenching grunt, but it's a very civilized and nice machine to ride. The power output is very linear and very easy to get used to. It can keep up with anything on the road, but their is just no particular fun factor to the machine for me. The engine is really easy to service plugs, oil and electrics. I also put some sports exhausts on, which made a little difference, and were quite easy to install as well. The tank range is frankly quite bad 19litres in the 97' model only being extended after 2000. On a motorway run, the fuel light will come on after about 80 miles of general riding, and start spluttering at about 95. The seat height will be an issue for anyone under about 5' 4" ish. That how tall i am, and i have to lean slightly to get a good foot down. It's quite comfortable. An inbetween seated position, not too sporty. The pillion seat might be a bit to small for people who are used to a comfortable touring seat, but it suffices. No grab rail on the back which might not suit some people as well. I feel like this is a bike for commuting, but good enough for a weekend blast with the lads. I would prefer something nippier though.
This antiperspirant does exactly what it says on the tin. It lives up to Sure's good name. I use this quite a lot as my after morning post-run spray. This is quite a soothing spray, not harsh like some others I've tried. It also leaves a minimum of residue, and is fine with black shirts. I don't have to worry about white marks or sweat marks at all for a good half day. It normally lasts me until at least lunchtime, then i usually refresh it a little. Even though i use it twice a day it lasts a good month before having to buy anymore. It dries very quickly, and doesn't have a too powdery feel. It has a fresh smell, that isn't too overpowering. The only downside is really the lockable nozzle. I don't really see the point in this as the button is quite protected anyway. All in all it is a good spray that keeps you fresh for a good amount of time.
It's nearly 4 years since i bought this brand new for a holiday over in Spain. The only place this bad boy couldn't go was in the water, but i'm sure there was a few splashes over it which it took in its stride. The unit is solid enough to know your carrying a camera, but compact enough to throw in your bag or pocket. The battery lasts for months on end, it is unbelievably good. The picture quality is good, not the best, but adequate for a some holiday snaps. there is enough options to change the shutter speeds and most other things to keep the tech heads happy, but all easy to get to. The menus are easy to go through and exactly where you would expect. quick preview and a adjustable timer are the norm. No problem with no name SD cards, and no problem with connectivity to a PC to transfer the images. This was such a good camera, i was even offered a new samsung compact camera with more MegaPixels and all the bells and whistles, and i turned it down immediately. The only bit that's a bit fragile is the SD card and battery slot. mine has broken off one of the sides, but still slides into place securely, so not really that bothered. All round stunning little camera.
I've had a Dell D630 for over 3 years, and also work repairing these when out of warranty. The build quality i would have to say is excellent. for the fact that it is a plastic shelled unit, it has stood up to almost everything i could throw at it. The battery life is good when in power saving mode, and have had up to 8hrs when first bought, but this does take a bit a battering after a few years. i generally run it from a docking station now, but the battery will still go a good 4 hours if required. Never had a problem with the USB ports, wireless connectivity, RJ45, DVD drive. All have stood up to the task. The main downfall i've seen with these units is the screen. although quite bright and well lit, if there is the slightest bit of pressure on the back of the screen component, from something in your laptop bag, it does show a dark spot. The other problem i've seen throughout the years working with these is the screen component starting to flicker on the bottom 1cm. This does require a complete screen swapout. Other than that, it's a pleasant experience using the machine.
