3.0 out of 5 stars Good value overall, but noisy!, 7 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks nice, good price, but had to buy different flexible tap connectors as they didn't fit UK fittings without leaking. Also, the tap is VERY noisy if running e en moderately fast.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great phone but cheap build, 28 Aug. 2009
This phone does everything you'd expect plus has lots of extras, so well worth the money. The only disappointment is that it is a bit cheap looking up close and doesn't seem very substantially made, but then hey - it's a phone, most of the time it's out of sight or against your ear!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it looks, 19 Nov. 2008
I bought a Wall Tastic Dinosaur Mural (not via Amazon) a while ago and it is awful. The pieces were terribly difficult to put on as they are not flexible like normal wallpaper.

Unless you stand well back the picture is very blurred and from one piece to the next the colour varies greatly (if you look closely you can even see this on the picture).

It comes in 12 pieces - 6 across the top and 6 across the bottom - and the bottom pieces had been cut 5mm narrower than those at the top so it couldn't be used. I ended up painting the bottom half of the wall and putting a border over the join. The retailer said it would have stretched putting it on but I'd measured the first piece before hanging it to get my plumb line in the right place so I know that wasn't the case.

If you want something cheap and cheerful and aren't bothered about the finish then go for it - but if you want something that actually looks good then don't bother.

Again, I didn't purchase this through a trader on Amazon.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings, 10 Feb. 2008
I opened this book with great expectations of an answer to dealing with my own strong willed child, but was disappointed. The book did however reassure me that my child, although challenging, is perfectly normal, and that the common sense approach we were already adopting was pretty much on the right track.

The book is heavily laden with quotes from the bible and the author condones, indeed encourages corporal punishment, even for toddlers, which was quite a surprise.

I'm just glad I had borrowed the book from the library and not bought it at the full retail price!

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but not Cheerful, 21 Jun. 2007
Initial view:

* good value for money although cheap build quality

* idiot-proof to use, so handy for quick snaps

BUT:

* indoor shots poor - auto focus does not work unless VERY well lit i.e. all the lights on even in the daytime

* zoom error occurred just outside warranty period & will cost more to fix than buy new.

Conclusion: buy if you like, but invest in extended warranty - maybe better to spend the extra on a better model in the first place!
