3.0 out of 5 stars I believe the picture is misleading, 6 Jun 2014
This review is from: Alert Voice (Personal Care)
My understanding is that Alert Voice is just the bottom left device. It clips on a chair, wheelchair or hangs around your neck. See Patterson Medical's website.

4.0 out of 5 stars A basic bag that does the job well, 24 Dec 2013

This bag just has one compartment, so it is not very versatile. But, it is well made and does the job well for what I want.

The case/keyboard has been really good. In fact even when I had a small problem with it ebuster were quick to help and sort it out. You can't say fairer than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks good and seems well made, 22 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't had a chance to use it much yet. But, first impressions are good. It looks well made, smells like leather and everything is lined up well.
Altogether a nice looking and well put together case.

3.0 out of 5 stars They do the job, but are not 100% reliable, 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used only these inks from when the printer was new. They are OK and certainly do the job. But, they are a bit hit and miss. You sometimes have to put up with the occasional page that prints with lines on. I have found this happens after a delay of a couple of weeks between uses. Normally it clears after a print or two. Or a clean cycle. Once I had to give up on a cartridge that still showed content (albeit low). But, the low price makes it still worth using these and the results when they work is every bit as good as Epson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never had a bit of electronics so simple., 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to take my single network outlet via an RJ45 cable coming from a network power adaptor and expand it to 3 network cables. I was amazed to see that I could do this for just over 10. Even more amazing was the ease of doing it.

Unplug the RJ45 cable from my PC and plug it into any inlet on the D-Link, then I had three short RJ45 cables (left over from various modems supplied free over the years) I plugged all 3 in and ran one to my Smart TV, one to my Blu-Ray and the other to my PC. Plug the power into the D-Link. Hey presto everything just worked immediately. Plus I have 1 more port free if I want to add any more network devices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic case, protects well, looks good., 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my wife's favourite case. She has had a few different types. It protects the Galaxy S3 Mini well and looks good too.

The case seems well made and well designed. The inner plastic case holds the phone securely and acts as a good protective layer. The outer case both looks and feels nice, plus the folding front protects the screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep your head cool and shaded, 16 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great hat for very hot weather. This is a very well designed and made hat. It is light coloured on top to reflect sunlight and dark underneath to reduce glare. It has a mesh top under a roll back top that is great for cooling without fully exposing your head. It also has a toggle strap to keep it on in windy weather. Great!

4.0 out of 5 stars This usb scanner works great, but you need to use it right, 16 July 2013
I read a lot of positive & negative reviews and then got one for myself. I think some of those negative reviewers may have not been using the device right. Not surprising as the instructions are useless. So take note here are some instructions to use it better:

1/ Make sure you remove the protective see through plastic from the negative holders.

2/ When loading a negative, clean off the dust (use a blower), load it emulsion side up. That's so that the writing is the wrong way around. This does mean you'll need to mirror image, reverse, the final image. But, you'll get a better result.

3/ Make sure you setup the software right for your scan. Acquire from 'Film scanner', set for negative or slide, B&W or colour. Set to maximum resolution for best result. Also set DPI to 3600.

4/ When you start scanning a new roll of film or batch of slides take a second scan of the first shot. I found that it needs to adjust the colour balance over two shots. After that it seems to be set for the batch. That's assuming you are a reasonable photographer and expose your shots well. If you have any well under or over exposed shots again take more than one scan of it.

Amazon's customer service are the best I have dealt with (no I don't work for them). So if you get any drop off at the edges (not on your original) or a pin point of brightness in the centre (not on your original) then you have a fault. Return it. The same if it won't focus. Basically this so called usb scanner appears to be a 5mp camera with backlight. So it has the potential for a fault in the backlight or camera.

One last thing. This device will produce results that are equivalent to scanning a 4x6 photo that you had done at Boots etc. But it will never beat a professional level scanner.
