3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but had the problem with the plastic gears, 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I liked this product originally... worked perfectly fine - as the instructions said it would. However after feeding in more than 8 sheets, which it almost munched through, it then stuggled a bit too hard and the plastic cogs broke. So I've thrown it in the bin now and am not happy - if you can be patient enough to munch up large amounts of paper this will probably last you a long time, however I got impatient and broke it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good sound at a fair price, 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having spent £90 on Bose headphones I've come back to these as the sound is decent quality without distorting at the higher volumes - (not noise cancelling) and it doesn't matter if you break/lose them. The Bose ones were good but then I'd rather have 9 - 10 pairs of these for the same price.

3.0 out of 5 stars worked well indoors over carpet, 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tried this indoors over carpet - great fun and no breakages. indoors over wood - the frame cracked first time it dropped. Took it outside and the range wasn't great - I sent it too high, it lost signal I guess, dropped from 30-40m and one of the arms completely snapped. I've since glued and selotaped it back together for extra support but wasn't impressed with how flimsy it is. For indoor use its great but make sure its over carpet! Would have been good if they could include more propellers too - 2 sets isn't really enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for cleaning/shining, 2 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have shined up the glass all over the place using this so far - picture frames, windows, car, glass tables, TV, specs. Works a treat. Was only intending on using it to dry the car but I expect it'd work well on shining anything with a highly reflective surface - piano, car, flooring, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars good set, 2 Feb 2014
When I got it set up the space key was sticking... a quick tightening of the screws below the space bar and its no longer sticking. Also the backslash key (with the default system installation) is showing a hash # character (which is not actually displayed on the keyboard anywhere). Not ideal but everything else seems to be shipshape - overall an a great value keyboard (and mouse) set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good advice, 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A slightly lengthy book but overall offered good advice. e.g. Right BICEP rule, CORRECT rule. Perhaps in need of a refresh though to take into account all the other testing techniques now available, e.g cucumber (BDD Testing), Mockito/PowerMock testing, Groovy/Spock (Specification) testing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Low power, 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Design Go Aqua Travel Fan (Misc.)
Not worth it - not enough power and the spray is a rubbish gimmick. Get a powerful fan that takes at least 2 batteries.

2.0 out of 5 stars Had a small problem, 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The tray and the internal "switch" which is activated by the amount of water in the tray is made of hard plastic which snapped after catching it on something whilst emptying the tray. I did manage to fix the unit however this is poor design in my opinion. Whilst the unit was quiet to begin with it soon became noisy and annoying. For the price its not bad but wasn't impressed given the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some good tips on general style, 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Provides a good introduction to communication style. Highlights some annoying habits people get themselves into and how not to communicate - eg. being overly self involved, egotistical, reactive (and generally, David Brent-esque). Overall I've returned to this book time and time again. Its concise too which only adds to the liklihood I'll actually read it all the way through.
