1.0 out of 5 stars Product missing several items, 18 Jun 2010
Ordered the product and paid extra for delivery and it arrived fairly quickly. However, upon receipt of the package I knew that several parts were missing as the box I signed for couldn't contain all the required bits. Sure enough when I opened the package only the main upright support was there. No shelves, no screws and no TV bracket. Unbelievable.

Called amazon who were fairly helpful but said I had to return the item as they had no more in stock. So I got a refund.

Really annoying as this is the 2nd time I've tried to purchase this TV stand and something has gone wrong on both occassions. Maybe it's fate telling me I shouldn't get teh stand and opt for an alternative

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Design - Didn't last a few minutes, 11 Jan 2010
Bought my Wife this shredder for Xmas. She used it for a few minutes and then it stopped working. Problem was a paper jam. She had fed the machine no more than 2 sheets at a time and it still jammed. Reversing the motor didn't free up the jam either. When I looked at it you could hear the motor working in the forward or reverse direction but the teeth on the cutting wheel weren't moving. I decided to pull it apart in the hope of freeing up some of the paper and getting everyhting working again. After 30minutes the machine was apart and any paper removed. However, the problem was that between the motor and the cutting wheel were a bunch of gears. Some were metal and some were plastic. Basically what had happened was that the worm gear straight from the motor was made of metal and meshed with another worm gear but this was made of plastic. A portion of the plastic worm gear had it's teeth worn off and couldn't bedriven any more. Obviously the paper jam had stopped the cutting wheel from moving. The motor didn't stop when the jam was detected (like it should have) and the motor continued to turn it's metal worm gear against the non-moving plastic worm gear resulting in it being worn down. This is poor design putting metal gears to drive plastic gears as in a high torque device such as the shredder it's obvious the plastic gears are going to get worn out. Didn't think it would take just a few minuites though.

Still the machinhe does look nice even if it doesn't work anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I thought, 18 Feb 2006
Just bought a new MP3 player after losing my IPOD shuffle on a business trip. Thought I'd buy a set of earphones and was looking for something not too expensive (certainly not more than the MP3 player to go with it) and one which would help cut out some of the background noise. I'd tried regular ear phones with noise cancellation gadgetry and found the sound to be not very good. Read some reviews on the Shure E2C but thought these were a bit expensive as I didn't know if I'd get along with sticking these things in my ear. Decided to go with the creative Ep-630 as they were affordable and had good reviews.
My first impressions when using them were truly awful. No bass, tinny sound, worse than the headphones the MP3 came with AND the darn things kept falling out...........
THEN I figured out how to fit them properly......WHAT A DIFFERENCE.
I'm a bit of a sound nut but for the money these sound great AND they cut out a lot of the background noise such as car traffic when I'm walking the dog. Will be on a plane at the weekend for 10hrs so these should help with the noise there as well.
How do you fit them.
Well first of all try the various sizes of rubber earbuds until you find the right size for your ear. It took me several goes.
When fitting try the following;
Take your left hand over your head to grab top of your right ear with the left hand's fingers.
Pull the top of right ear up to open up your ear canal
Put your ear phone in while you hold up your ear as above.
While you hold in the ear phone, let go the ear held by left fingers.
Keep pressing the earphone in place with your right hand for a few seconds to let everything settle down as this help the ear "grip" the earphone bud and hold it in place
Do the same thing for the other side .... just use the right hand over the head instead..
If its a good fit you can tell as if you tap the earphone (gently) it feels as if the noise is inside your head. You need to get a good seal to give the right sound with decent bass.
I thought I was fairly intelligent but it took a search on the internet to find these instructions (they're not mine then). Now fitted correctly I'm very impressed.
Would I buy these again......you bet. Highly recommended
