4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality base-unit, 8 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well made unit with good sound quality from handpiece and speakerphone (for some reason answer machine messages are not as clear)
Bluetooth connection to mobile to allow calls to be received from both landline and mobile to this unit and added handsets around the house - works well and is a very useful feature as the mobile can sit in an optimal reception area and you don't miss calls.
Could do with a battery backup to avoid loss of date/time etc if power switched off, and doesn't automatically sync up contacts or clock with added handsets (Gigaset SL910H)

No issues with UK compatability.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but effective, 8 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple, practical pouch, quick access pull tag works well, materials are fine.
Very slightly loose, which makes it easier to get phone in and out, but it could slip out if inverted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Award winning, top quality item at a fantastic price, 7 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This amp is the current winner in the what Hifi awards - and it deserves its title.
This is more towards the budget end - and so is not my main AV setup, as such it isn't connected to the best speakers and so can't comment in detail on sound qulaity. Given these limitations it works very well and is easy to set up. The cheaper Yamaha receivers may well be as good when linked up to budget speakers, and they all look solid and well made (especially in this brushed metal finish) - but this has the best range of features without breaking the bank.
USB ipod connectivity works well (haven't tested airplay) giving access to ipod menus via the amp (on tv screen or the amps display)
ARC via HDMI is very useful to minimize wiring requirements and allows TV sound output to come through the receiver - useful for USB/on-line/network accessed movies (didn't have optical / phono in wall)
Only minor gripe is that Yamaha chose to hard wire the power cable into the box - which may ba annoying if its length doesn't suit, if it becomes damaged or if you want to feed it through a hole in shelving.
Overall this is a great product at a great price.

Large, easy to use and colourful. Creates an interest and awareness of the world. Only negative is that it is a bit fiddly for young children and a too expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Network Solution, 30 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I decided to go for a NAS to free up the space on my desktop and allow access from multiple machines, and wanted a downloading device which would use minimal energy. Synology has been reviewed very highly by other people on Amazon as well as professional tech reviewrs, so this looked like a safe choice. You can go for a cheaper/smaller unit, as well as larger units - but I wanted a device that would allow data to be automatically backed up in case of disk failure but didn't want a very large unit (as it is sitting in my front room with my AV kit).
It took some time to work out how to use it (there are no instructions, but everything is available on the synology website, including video tutorials with more on you tube) Having finally got it up and running with a pair of WD caviar green 3TB disks, this unit delivers everything I need:
It is easy to use as mapped drives with windows explorer (I believe it is just as easy in Mac) allowing drag and drop file access
The downloader seems to be quicker than utorrent running in windows (although its search facility doesn't always work - but you can save a torrent file on your PC and ask the downloader to open it)
It is fully accesible with my WD Live TV HD media player via ethernet - allowing me to send films to my AV amp using HDMI (I means of using DLNA at present, so can't say how well this would work - but for HD quality to be projected on a large screen, I have my doubts about the reliability of streaming)
It is supposed to be accessible on-line from anywhere - but I haven't tested this facility yet.
All in all, a well made piece of kit that does exactly what I neede.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value for money, 8 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a cable to ocassionally hook up my i-pod to my pc speakers, so didsn't want to spend too much. This cable was a great find - solid construction, chunky cable (a previous shorter cable turned out to be very thin and just didn't feel well made) and best of all, a ridiculously low price. Having shopped around in-store and on-line, it would be pointless wasting your time with anything else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value, Great quality, 8 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought my first set of cartridges for my can Pixma Mg 8150 as canon originals, I was distressed at how quickly they needed replacement and the cost involved. Searching amazon brought up these compatibles, which comes not only as a complete set (often CLI 526 is not included), but as a triple set for even better value. There have been no issues with compatibility and recognition by the printer, and print quality is absolutely fine (I haven't done any photographic printing). Having almost decided that the printer was a waste of money due to excessive running costs, these cartridges have been a fantastic find.

Plantronics 975V2 Bluetooth Headset
Plantronics 975V2 Bluetooth Headset

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding headset, 4 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well made, compact headset, which fits into your ear (rubber insert in 3 sizes provided) rather than hooking over your ear and is quite comfortable to wear. The centre of the unit acts as a button for on/off and to accept/end call, with a seperate very small button at the back for volume. Charged quickly out of the box and paired up without any hassles.
Sound quality is generally very good. Battery life is excellent - it charges either from the mains with the mains cable provided, but also from the carry case provided (this is well finished and useful simply as a case to protect the unit, but adding the charging facility makes it even better). So far I have only charged the unit once and it is still going strong (2 bars on the headset and 3 for the case battery - displayed while the unit is connected to the case). I am not a heavy user and switch it off while not in the car - but having had it for nearly 3 weeks, this is outstanding.
There are certainly cheaper units on the market - but this is well worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality & functional without a big price tag, 20 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
well made item, good materials, very simple and functional, good price. My only (minor) crticism: logo and writing look a bit lame(would be better with a simple apple logo - but I guess this wouldn't be permitted). Overall: very happy with the purchase.
