1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time and money!, 30 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a native German speaker and was looking for a brief introduction to German as a present. Knowing how complex my mother tongue is I was a bit dubious of the title "Learn German in 7 Days" but thought the book might be able to reduce a quite complex language to some core elements suitable for beginners. It failed so miserably I chucked the book into the bin (and even the bin spat it out :-).

Don't waste your time and money!

3.0 out of 5 stars Little toy, 4 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice little toy but no more:

Pro:
- fast delivery
- good image
- easy to install
- small
- can be set up within 20 mins even without instructions
- long cable
- cheap for what it does

Con:
- short recording time (even with 32 G and lowest resolution less than 30 mins)
- short battery life (but it does not matter if you run out of battery or recording space on the disk first - the result is the same)
- instructions unintelligible (I can't read one word of Chinese but found the English instructions no more helpful than the Chinese)

Good enough to buy again - probably not.
Bad enough to return - neither.

Dymo Cardscan Personal 8 (PC)
Dymo Cardscan Personal 8 (PC)

5.0 out of 5 stars Item worked well, then broke but got replacement fast and easy, 20 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered the scanner, which came quickly but with 2 screws missing. Not a big problem as worked fine. Unfortunately, it stopped working after 2 months. I called customer service, got a telephone diagnosis and was told it had to be sent in but would either be repaired very quickly or I would receive a new one. The replacement arrived soon after I had sent the broken one in and works perfectly well plus they talked me through the installation on the phone, as there were some issues. Service 5 stars, Scanner also 5 stars - probably got a dud the first time. Dymo service so exceptionally quick and helpful that I feel 5 stars is correct despite the first one breaking after 2 months.


SanDisk 32GB Extreme USB 3.0 Flash Drive
SanDisk 32GB Extreme USB 3.0 Flash Drive
Offered by MemoryLab
Price: £20.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good quality, design and speed, 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The biggest advantage of this Flash Drive is its speed. USB 3.0 is significantly faster than USB 2.0 and this drive really delivers. It combines functionality with good design, having an opening at the top end, so one can hang it onto your keyring while the retraction mechanism protects the front end, without making it too large.

Not cheap but very good quality, good design and very fast - so value for money.

Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value aerial, 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I live in an area with poor TV signal and needed a good aerial. The product came very quickly, the contents of the box were complete and ready to install. The instructions were in clear, easy to understand English with some graphics, where necessary. The installation took some time but was not difficult and no specialist tools were needed. The only downside was the rather low quality coax cable. These cables are expensive, but I would have preferred to pay a bit more to have a better cable. This would improve the signal delivered to the TV.

As mentioned in the product description the brackets delivered with the aerial are not sufficient for outdoor installation. The size of the aerial makes it susceptible to the wind, so much stronger brackets than the one's included are needed for outside installation.

The aerial is very large (> 1.1m in length plus it two has big reflectors). I am sure this improves the reception but one needs a decent sized loft in order be able to point it into the right direction. I installed the aerial outside and in my area it delivers a signal of 50db - not extremely strong, but I had to install it somewhat wind sheltered as even with a stronger pole it would have been damaged quickly by the recent strong winds.

All in all a very large, good value for money, easy to install aerial with very fast delivery and in line with the vendor's description. I recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as described and rubbish service, 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product arrived on time - but looks quite a bit different than in the picture. It was repackaged, so probably had been returned by another buyer. Unfortunately, the 4 KEY BITS were missing; so I can't build the stand, as it would collapse as soon as I put the TV on it.

Having read other customers reviews and their criticism of Designer Habitats customer service department I thought I would make my request fool-proof and emailed Designer Habitat via the amazon website providing:

- A VERBAL EXPLANATION what was missing and
- THEIR product number and name from the carton and
- THEIR missing parts number "G1"(from the instructions leaflet) and
- a PDF copy of their instructions leaflet WITH the missing pieces CIRCLED in thick black permanent marker and
- instructions how to send these pieces to me.

After some days Claire in DESIGNER HABITAT's customer services emailed the "we are so sorry" corporate standard blurb, which she clearly had copied and pasted from somewhere and asked me to send pictures.

I mailed back that she should read my email as every information conceivable was there already.

A few days later she mailed back with another load of pre-fromulated blurb confirming she had read the email and would dispatch the parts "C1".

I had to mail back there are no parts called "C1" and I had asked for 4 parts "G1" and asked for delivery asap.

She then mailed back that pieces will be dispatched - giving no indication of time. I am still waiting.

RUBBISH COMPANY, RUBBISH SERVICE AND PRODUCT DIFFERENT FROM THAT ON THE PICTURE ON AMAZON'S ORDER PAGE.

AVOID THIS COMPANY!! AVOID THIS COMPANY!! AVOID THIS COMPANY!!
