4.0 out of 5 stars so very pleased when it worked first time and better than expected, 14 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Didn't have too high expectations, given the somewhat mixed reviews on Amazon, so very pleased when it worked first time and better than expected. Transmitter is connected to our PVR in the living room, and the receiver unit to a wall-mounted TV in the kitchen (adjacent but round two corners, and with thick walls in between) where, historically, reception has been awful, even with booster aerials. Even better, it suffers no interference from the microwave which sits on a worktop underneath the TV. Picture and sound are very clear although don't expect HD quality (indeed the manufacturer doesn't claim it).
It's quite plasticky and a cheapish finish, so time will tell how long it lasts (only been in a couple of days). Nevertheless, very pleased so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does a Good Job, 11 Jan. 2014

Bought initially to switch light on and off. Does the job fine although instructions might have been a little clearer. Wouldn't hesitate to buy more if needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Mower - Four and a Half Stars, 7 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this mower at the beginning of the season to replace another Flymo I'd had for several years. As a mower, it does a truly excellent job, including keeping the edges under reasonable control, and reducing the need for frequent strimming. I would, however, echo other reviewers who commented on the rather clumsy cable storage arrangement - a plug and socket arrangement enabling the cable to be separated for storage would be much better - and also the complex shape of the grass collection box which makes emptying and cleaning harder than necessary.

Quality of cut must, however, be the main criterion, and this mower cuts evenly, with easily adjustable blade height, and the rollers leave good lines (although these tend to vanish within 24 hours). Highly recommended subject to the caveats outlined above.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the Job, 7 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this in Summer 2013 for my new Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 phone. Six months on, and the screen protector is still fine, but the skin is starting to become slightly stretched, possibly needing replacement in a few months.

Nevertheless, at the price, excellent value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Meets the Needs for Continental Travel, 7 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to meet requirements for travel in France during Summer 2013. The kit contained all that was required with the exception of breathalyser kit(s) which is a requirement for travel in France and which needs to be bought separately.

I was a little worried the magnetic GB sticker might become detached, and took the precaution of removing it anytime we parked up for any length of time lest it be stolen, but it seemed to hold without problem.

2.0 out of 5 stars Quite Disappointed, 7 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this item with a view to digitising (potentially) several thousand half-frame (24 x 18 mm) colour slides. I purchased it in the face of somewhat mixed reviews, but decided to take a gamble which, for me on this occasion, didn't pay off. Whilst accepting there would inevitably be some loss of quality due to the smaller frame size, I was particularly disappointed by the harsh colour tones on many of the pictures. Clarity was also substantially inferior to that achieved previously on a flatbed scanner, although processing with the flatbed took considerably longer.

On a positive note, the Veho is fairly intuitive and easy to use, and processing rate quite quick.

Overall, it has to be borne in mind that, in reality, this is taking a photo of the original slide, it's not a scanner in the true sense. OK for generating a catalogue of slides for viewing separately, but results not good enough to substitute for original slides.

I sent it back to Amazon and received a full refund, for which many thanks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight but Sturdy Protector, 7 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to protect my newly-purchased Nexus 7. Has quite a nice solid feel, giving confidence it should protect the unit against most knocks, without feeling cheap and plasticky. Access to the power switch is slightly fiddly when inside the case and, I think, capable of improvement, hence the 4-star rating rather than 5-star, but not a major issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the Job at Low Cost, 7 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to wall-mount a 24" TV in the spare bedroom, and it's now been in service for several weeks without problem. Sturdily built, although slightly fiddly to bolt together the mounted television and the mounted wall plate due to lack of working space behind the TV set. That said, very pleased, especially given the very reasonable price for this item.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks Good but Disappointing Performer, 23 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this aerial in the hope it would improve reception on a TV in the corner of the kitchen, but it performed no better than a passive aerial. Cascaded it to a bedroom TV where signal strength is better, and it’s OK. Neat and tidy to look at, but I’m very disappointed in its performance in weak signal areas.
