5.0 out of 5 stars Comparable with official toner., 14 July 2014
No discernible difference from the official Dell cartridges the printer came with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great device let down by lousy software., 14 July 2014
I've been using one of these at home on my Windows machine for a couple of years. The device itself is very good. It scans rapidly without fault, re-aligns everything and even OCRs it and sends it to Evernote in the cloud. Compared with the page-by-page flatbed scanner I used to use, this is a breeze.

The big negative is the software. On my Windows machine via USB it's not great but okay. Fiddly software that works fine once it's set up. On my Mac at work over WiFi it's pretty bad. The software crashes a lot and, although over WiFi, it can only be assigned to one computer at a time. I had assumed that the whole office could use it to scan (like a shared printer) but this doesn't seem to be the case.

I'd still recommend the product, but be prepared for a bit of software frustration particularly if you're using this on a Mac over WiFi.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too small? Try the 100., 16 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this to be too small for my needs. They do a Capri 100 that might suit your needs better.

The drier is well built.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful, 16 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't knock the price and it's nice and small.

Two things that you might want to consider.
- In practice it's 298GB. At least that's what Windows reports.
- It requires one of those two-socket USB connector cables (supplied). Don't lose that cable! A regular mini USB cable won't work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Re-release of two documentaries., 16 July 2013
Re-release of 'The Smiths - Under Review: An Independent Critical Analysis' & 'The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead: A Classic Album Under Review'. Neither feature new commentary from Morrissey or Marr, although both decent documentaries if you're a fan, especially the latter.

5.0 out of 5 stars You might hate it. Your kids will love it., 19 Sep 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Furby (Toy)
If you remember the Furbies from the first time round or remember the movie Gremlins then you have a good idea of what this Furby is. This time around he's more fully featured, including expressive LCD eyes and an iPhone app that lets you feed and translate.

My four year old daughter loved it. I wasn't sure if she'd take to it, but the fact that it was 'alive' made her treat it more like a pet than a toy. She's only had it for one evening so far so I can't do a thorough review at this point, but she really seems drawn to the fact that she can nurture it and see results. The iPhone app, while not particularly sophisticated, does a good job of feeding the imagination. I doubt the Furby really prefers if it has a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich or a bacon, cheese and tomato sandwich but my daughter is already convinced of her Furby's dietary preferences.

Parents beware: no off switch.

Good fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Flashmart version needs driver disc, 26 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I notice this device is available from three sellers. Mine came from Flashmart. It doesn't look like the one in the picture here; it's white. MicroNEXT MN-WD150B.

I really wanted something that would just auto-install in Windows7, i.e. didn't require a driver disk or Windows Update. It turns out that it doesn't even work with Windows Update.

I expect if I install the drivers from the mini-CD it will work fine, but that wasn't what I wanted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Many great customisation options, 29 Sep 2011
If you're buying this as a regular NAS then it's probably great. I am very happy with it. It compares favourably with other NAS drives I've owned.

Where it comes into its own is software that runs on it. I assumed a NAS drive would be just a dumb drive, but there are a whole host of software options both available out of the box and as add ons. Search for Diskstation Manager to get an idea. Also look up SynoBlog for the best of the addon software. I am genuinely knocked out by this product.

I think the Diskstation Manager software is the same in most of the Synology range, so if you want to save some money then you could probably get a lower model and buy a bigger drive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Note: Brushed Stainless Steel, 8 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This kettle's great. Well made. Good attention to detail.

Only one point which might be helpful to someone: the kettle is available in brushed stainless steel or polished stainless steel. The illustrations don't make that clear and somehow I missed it in the description.

I accidentally went with brushed, which probably doesn't show up smudges as badly as the polished version. Result!

5.0 out of 5 stars 45 Minute Special!, 3 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Usually the Numberjacks have regular length episodes of about 15 minutes. This one is three times that length at 45 minutes. A nice surprise!

There are three other episodes on it that you will have probably already seen on Cbeebies: Into The Teens, Famous 5s and Bad Circles.
