Kärcher K3.575 Jubilee Pressure Washer (Old Version)

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware of Karcher, 13 Mar. 2012
This is the 2nd Karcher i have purchased, never again.
The first unit packed up after 2 years. I thought bad luck and tried them again. now this K3.575 is leaking & low pressure after 11 months, with about 10 uses. I have contacted Karcher who directed me to a small independent outfit around 25 miles from where i live - I have to take it to them. Leave it there, then another round trip once they have sorted it. Not a great experience. I would recommend you try another brand - Karcher may be cheap & have huge market share, but the reliability & after sales support is just not there.

3.0 out of 5 stars reasonable quality, but beware if ironing!, 17 Oct. 2011
The text on the T-Shirt is that vinyl material that will smear if you iron it, so beware! Not amazing value for the price, hence the score.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did not arrive, 17 Oct. 2011
Not sure if it was the suppliers fault or not, but it did not arrive, even though the shipping tracker said it had been delivered. Disappointed as a Birthday was missed. At least Amazon refunded immediately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Well, 17 Oct. 2011
Very happy with this product, great video editing software included & can play in HD while I capture. Worked OK with my PS3, no lag when capturing, and delighted with the results. Would recommend for the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wind-up prop broke after about a week, 15 Jun. 2011
Grandad wound the propellor up a bit too much, and it broke! Having said that our 3 year old still loves playing with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars There a lot to it - with great video conversion application, 15 Jun. 2011
Really love this product, the new 3D photos are fun (there are the old style glasses in the box, but if you have the latest 3D gear that is supported too), and I've used the direct sharing from your PC which works well (though you need to ensure your PC is on if someone wants to view your photos or videos). I upgraded from the last version and have been pleased with the new features. I use Windows 7 and have had no issues. My favourite application is the video conversion tool - very useful for getting videos onto my iPad. There's a lot in this application - hence the 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good value, but not perfect, 7 Oct. 2010
Very good value when you compare to those sold in PCWorld for £20! And though rather tricky to apply, it adheres without any bubbles if you are careful when applying. Only criticism is you can see some discolouration at certain angles in light, like looking at a car windscreen with polarized glasses on, but hardly/rarely noticeable. Happy I purchased and saved money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed with 3D, 4 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Roxio Creator 2011 (PC) (DVD-ROM)
The 3-D features are really very cool- I've tried them just using the anaglyph glasses (in the box) and have some impressive results going from 2D images, or by taking 2 x standard 2D photos and combining them.
The 2D to 3D video feature gets some surprisingly good results too.
The addition of a streamer app is very useful for sharing (or remote accessing) your own photos & videos - but primarily should be used for enjoying your own media - as you need your 'Server' PC switched on; and if you send links to friends to see stuff they tend to get frustrated if your PC is off! Had no issues installing or with the speed of my (3 year old) PC when running this. Overall value for money is pretty good when you consider the music, video, photo, backup and data activities included. Would recommend if you have a few Sunday afternoons free!

Solid, durable rubber-coated build. Good battery life between charges. Seems happy to get very wet in the shower.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works great - if your video quality is good, 6 Feb. 2009
This is a great product - if you make sure you qualify for these requirements:

-Your VHS tapes/video quality is pretty good
-Your video cassette player is not ancient (old dirt video heads will also hurt quality)
-You have composite video (RCA) or S-Video (mini-Din) outputs on your player (however you can get cheap adapters, even if you don't (including SCART to RCA)
-You have a standard USB connector on your laptop or desktop PC
-You have at least a 1GHz processor & 512 MB of RAM free.

The reason your original video quality is important - is that this will directly effect the results (capture quality is not really governed by the software, although this, and other brands, do include tools to improve captured video quality). Really poor video quality can also trigger issues with the copyright detection that this software and others contain (Typically Macrovision) which can bring up an `Copyright Protection Detected" error. (see comment in other review) But this is a problem that all video convertors can have.

Once you've captured your video (a cable connection guide is included) then you can burn your video onto a DVD's complete with Menus, these allow you to navigate between multiple movie clips on your DVD disc (Just like the DVDs you rent/buy). You can also transfer them to iPod or PSP - which is probably the best way to watch old analogue video - on a small screen!

Incidentally this software/device also captures analogue audio - i.e. put your LPs and tapes onto CDs, with the ability to automatically identify the captured tracks using an on-line database,which is a pretty cool feature & saves lots of `keyboard time'. Audio conversion is not included in the Magix brand. This software is also around £10 cheaper- Which makes it a great buy, hence all the stars. Happy converting!
