1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work for my machine, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to connect my Windows tablet to a projector. Sadly this product simply doesn't work. I get a displaced picture using a projector which is not correct and I cannot get a picture of any sort on a flat screen TV using the PC input. I purchased a similar adaptor from the tablet manufacturer for only slightly more money and it works just fine for both types of display.

2.0 out of 5 stars No indicator light, 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I considered purchasing the "official" Microsoft power supply but reasoned that an aftermarket device would be just as good. However, I'm very disappointed to find that there is no indicator light on the connector plug so unless you look at the Start screen there is no confirmation that it is charging. I'm considering returning for a refund and to purchase a better one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful gadget for shedding light on hard to reach things, 8 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent product, ideal for getting light into small spaces and tiny corners. Good value for money. I bought this for examining motorcycle brake pads (notoriously hard to see) and it's perfect for that application. The laser pointer is an interesting addition but not one that I expect to get much use from. However, it's there if you need it. Magnetic base is a boon as you can park the torch and have both hands free. Good value so get one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile and very useful, 8 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent product, ideal for getting light into hard to reach spaces. I had a smaller version that I used for for checkin motorcycle brake pads (notoriously hard to see) and this is a bit too big for that. However, the 3 LED source gives really good light and the telescopic and flexible head makes it really versatile. It look really well made and I thoroughly recommend it.

Edition: Paperback
Price: £30.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Manual for Most jobs, 17 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good down to earth manual which should help with most tasks that a DIY mechanic can tackle. There are odd things missed out usually related to body and trim but it's a very minor point. The big omission is regrettably a wiring diagram, but you are unlikely to find this in any manual at this price. It's good value and I'd recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Always worth seeing the original, 15 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Stepford Wives [DVD] (DVD)
Although recently remade and relaunched there is something about the original that's worth seeing. Sure it shows it's age as a movie made well over 30 years ago but there is a very good and sinister feel to the movle. worth seeing before you see the remake

4.0 out of 5 stars Epson BX610FW Printer, 7 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this on an impulse when my Brother MFC died. These days it's just not worth the hassle of getting printers repaired.
I'm very happy with the Epson. The print speed is much faster than the Brother and it was pretty quick and easy to set up.
There is only one irritating glitch. I have my printer connected to my wireless router so it can be used by anyone. The only problem is that the Epson Status Monitor will not allow me to see the ink levels from my laptop. Epson have suggested that I need to add exceptions to the Windows Firewall, which I've done, but it still blocks the Status Monitor from working.
This is not a big deal but Epson have, as yet, not told me how to get around it. I wouldn't find this a strong reason for not buying one, especially at the current price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, 11 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Now that I'm doing more air travel I have observed an increasing number of people using noise cancelling headphones. My Amazon search revealed many models, mostly very expensive. I also wanted an "in ear" version and the existing reviews looked good. So did the price.
I was somewhat sceptical but when I got them I was extremely impressed. The noise cancelling on trains and aircraft is brilliant! No more trying to catch the dialogue over an intrusive rumble of jet engines.
If you wavering - don't! These are brilliant.
