3.0 out of 5 stars They dont tell you that Neff state in the handbook that to get the best results you need special cookware, 23 Aug 2014
Bought one last week off another site. My advice is save yourselves a few hundred pounds and buy something less complicated and demanding. When it takes 1.5 hours to cook two average size jacket potatoes I cant say its worth even half the money it costs. They dont tell you that Neff state in the handbook that to get the best results you need special cookware

4.0 out of 5 stars Acceptable, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all dont be fooled by the Co. LTD after the name. This item is despatched from Hong Kong. Seems the only way you can tell where a seller is based is to click on their name on the page. I wasnt aware of that.

OK the item itself. Leather. Doesnt smell like leather but feels soft and looks like leather but I have my doubts. Having said that it fits the tablet well and the bluetooth keyboard works. The instructions relate to a different keyboard but as its a very simple job to connect it that isnt really a problem. Reading the names on the swtiches is tricky if your eyesight isnt good as they are just impressed into the black plastic. Switching the power on then the the bluetooth swtich and my tablet found it immediately and connected without any problems.

They keyboard isnt attached to the case so be carefull as it will fall out if your a bit casual when you open it. ( bit of velcro would have been an improvement)

All in all is seems to be good value for money and I cant really fault it. Time will tell how reliable and robust it is

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid, 23 May 2014
This is the worst notebook I have ever owned. The touchpad is a nightmare as it has integral left and right buttons that also move the cursor so if you try scrolling by tapping the left buttton the cursor wanders off the scroll bar. The bluetooth hasnt work from day one and asus support are less than useless. Its an overpriced notebook and you could buy better for less than half the price

1.0 out of 5 stars Quality, 11 Mar 2014
The quality of this product is well below its advertised description. The rings are PLASTIC and the eyelets apart from not being screwed in fully have a habit of pulling out when the weight of the curtains are on them. You would think with w household name like Harrison Drape they would be of decent quality. They should be decribed as "wooden poles with plastic rings"

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not fit a Pfaff machine, 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having spent ages trying to get these needles to fit into a Pfaff sewing machine it must be that the shafts are too thick to go into the needle holder. All other needles that came new with the machine fit easily. These will not go up into the hole in the holder despite it saying on the package that they fit a Pfaff machine Also the packaging is misleading as it says on the from " German precision & Technology and on the back " Made in India" I think that says it all

1.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous, 2 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If it was possible to leave zero stars I would. These steps should be banned from sale. They are lethal. The safety catch ( and I use the term very loosely) is a plastic strip that I assume is suppose to stop the steps from closing when in use. It doesnt even connect with the bar I assume its supposed to. I opened the steps and held onto the cushioned bar as I stepped onto the first step. The step ladder immediately started to fold up as my weight went onto them. When I looked at the locking system its none existant. do not buy these step ladders unless you or anyone that trys to use then wants to end up injured. I will we requesting an investigation by Trading Standards into the dangerous way these are made and sold

4.0 out of 5 stars Asus pros and cons, 21 Nov 2013
Really nice notebook. very responsive touchscreen and nice positive backlit keyboard. One major offput. The touchpad is terrible. No seperate mouse buttons and the cursor has a mind of its own and wanders off from where you left it. Scrolling using the side bar is a nightmare. Very little useful application to adjust the touch sensitive area on the pad and if your not carefull the cursor still moves when your finger is in the button area. This takes the shine off what is a really nice notebook.

Word of warning. Dont expect any response from ASUS if you have any problems or need help. You get left on hold and nobody answers. If you email them via their website support all you get is an automated reply with a ticket number that then dont follow up. Worst support I have ever encountered

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 14 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It does what it says, but takes a few days to charge back up from the sunlight and only achieves 3 bars. Its well made and not at all flimsy and has a good range of adapters. It charged my Samsung SII without difficulty and would be useful if you were camping or away from any power source as long as you keep it charging itself for the next time you need it.
