      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Brilliant value for money

      I bought this camera brand new last year for our holidays for a very good price.

      For about 8 months the camera was brilliant. I am not a photographer but the quality of the pictures was very good for the price I paid. The menus where a little clunky and hard to use but once I was used to them it was a pretty good and the options available are very useful for an amateur like myself.

      After 8 months of use I had a couple of major issues with the camera: the buttons located in the upper right corner (zoom and the take picture button) ceased to function! I fixed this a month later by dropping the camera accidentally whilst taking to Samsungs warranty division over the telephone!

      Overall though I would definitely recommend the camera as i believe my issues where a one off and the quality and value of the camera over shone this fact. The camera is still going strong as i type this!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Excellent purchase, perfect laptop

      This may not be the top of the range laptop but after owning it for over two years i can only say good things about it.

      The laptop has mainly been in a very poor environment with children and a lot of dust flying around and it still runs fine and the heat is still expelled from the vents without any blockages which is what i have experienced with my other 4 laptops (not dell).

      The media control buttons on the front of the laptop are also brilliant and make my music listening experience a lot better and i would not consider a future laptop without this functionality.

      I chose pretty much the basic Vostro 1500 from Dell and the performance is amazing for the price I paid. The laptop can play some pretty good quality games (Sims 3) without any issues.

      Overall I would definitely recommend the Dell Vostro Laptop Range and Dell in general as their service is excellent all round.

      Very bad experience with this car

      I had this Renault Clio for 3 years and all I can say is that my experience was terrible!

      I had constant problems with the electronics and the car would just cut off randomly whilst in traffic. I also had big issues with the accelerator cable which snapped 3 times. I must also mention I had all repairs at a official Renault garage so it was not down to shoddy workmanship. The garage informed me that a couple of errors where down to a Renault "design fault" and could be fixed but that the issue would arise again in the future.

      On the flip side the car was very comfortable and smooth to ride when it was operational but i would not recommend anyone this make/model!

      In future I would not buy another Renault car due to the constant breakdowns and the attitude of the engineers at the official Renault garages.
