Kärcher WV50 Window Vac - Window Cleaning Vacuum
Offered by Country Gardening
Price: £46.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Works a dream, 18 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product does just what it says. It sucks up water on the window leaving a smear free finish. It is also good for cleaning up the shower walls after a shower.

If you suck up too much water and overfill the reservoir some water spits out when you use the machine in a horizontal position, but this is easily avoided by emptying the reservoir before it is too full. This can be done either by pulling out the rubber plug and pouring the water out, or the head can be removed (pressing two buttons - one on each side and lifting the head off) allowing the reservoir to be removed, emptied, rinsed etc.

The head is 26cm (11 inches) wide and so cannot be used in a narrower space. However a smaller head is available as an extra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ink at a great price - no problems, 18 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have previously ordered ink from this supplier on several occasions. Each time it arrived quickly and in perfect condition, including this time.

From my previous experience of this product (I have previously purchased complete sets of coloured ink (and extra cartridges of black ink as I use more black)on three occasion) and I know that it works perfectly in my Canon printer.

The first time I purchased it I was wary of buying non-Canon ink, but I was tempted by the lower price. I have found that this ink works perfectly (although I have no experience of printing photographs with it) with no compatibility problems, and no damage to my printer like some scare stories would make you believe.

I have just paid £17 for two complete sets of 5 inks plus two additional large black inks. To buy the same inks by Canon would have cost in the region of £107.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2011 version - kindle functionality, 15 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NIV Bible (Kindle Edition)
In 2011 the publishers of the NIV published a revised version of this popular bible translation. This kindle version is the new 2011 version of the NIV, not the traditional 1984 one. I understand that the old 1984 version (along with the TNIV) will now be going out of print and will not be available in any format once existing stocks all been sold. The translators notes [...] explain what has been changed and why. So far I have found that the changes make this revised translation clearer to understand. It is NOT a case of political correctness gone mad!

I read all the reviews before I purchased this kindle edition, as I was concerned that it would be difficult to quickly change from one reference to another during a church service or bible-study. Not having seen the kindle version, I found all the references to 'finder' in the reviews confusing.

In short, this version is very simple to use and it is very easy to move around the bible. With a few days practice it is possible to move to a new reference as quickly as one would in a printed bible.

Touching L or R the 5-way controller on the kindle moves back or forward by one book. Holding the L or R the 5-way controller on the kindle moves rapidly through the bible books in seconds. Between each chapter there is a 'finder', which allows you to use up or down buttons on the 5-way controller to highlight any book of the bible, selecting with a double click once the required book is highlighted. The same process is used again to select the chapter within the book. Once at the chapter you want, you just turn the pages as you would in a printed bible to get to the required verse. Simple and fast.

The NIV bible footnotes are all there and easy to access using the 5-way controller.

As a kindle it is much smaller and lighter to carry than a printed bible, and the text can be enlarged as normal to whatever size you need to read clearly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compatible ink works perfectly, 21 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very unsure about changing from the manufacturers inks to compatible ink, but finally made the decision due to the financial savings involved. I have now used this full set of inks and am more than satisfied. The quality is as good as with the manufacturers ink (though I do not print photographs, so I cannot comment on photographic reproductionn quality)and I have had no problems with my printer since changing to this producer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect job, 6 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased this 5m hdmi cable to connect a laptop to a tv. It works perfectly. The picture quality is exactly the same as a much more expensive 1.8m cable that it replaced. Great value. Absolutely no need to spend the fortune demanded for some hdmi cables when this one does a perfect job.
