2.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, but very disappointing results, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this mainly to convert all my old slides to digital format.

Most of the slides were taken with an Olympus OM10 camera with top quality lenses, using Kodak film, so the slides are sharp with good colour rendition.

The instructions included are very basic, to say the least, but I was initially impressed with the speed of scanning and the ease of use. Pictures to be scanned are visible via the onboard 2.4" screen and initially looked good. On the simple press of a button, scanning takes a few seconds and the conversion is saved automatically, directly to an SD card (not supplied), which is inserted into a slot on the side of the main unit.

If the unit is plugged into a computer, rather than using the mains plug to USB power source supplied, the menu button allows the stored images to be viewed by Windows Eplorer and hence easily copied accoss.

My disappointment came when I viewed my first few test conversions, via the computer. The resulting images appeared unsharp, with poor colour balance, plus flaring visible, similar to over doing the contrast when adjusting pictures in photoshop software. No amount of digital tweaking/fixing could improve the result to anything that was acceptable for viewing, or suitable for printing.

I decided to return the unit and do more research prior to trying an alternative.

My advice would be to avoid this unit if you want a quality result.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light, Stylish and Accurate, 2 May 2013

Great looking watch which has a low profile, making wearing it unobtrusive. I only realised how often I used to catch my previous watch on things, after wearing this one for a while. I completely forget I have on, until I check the time of course.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wears quickly on tile edges, 2 May 2013

Started fine, but the ball end soon became worn and 'V' shaped. Plastic is not the right material for reliable use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, but disappointing press stud joining method, 2 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely and warm with plenty of wrap around luxury feel. Unfortunately let down by the way the two quilts fix together, the plastic press studs are just not up to the task. This means that after a few shakes to fluff up in the morning the two quilts easily part company inside the duvet cover, which soon causes them to ruck up, necessitating a complete strip and refix.

Fortunately owing to the warmth, the two together will only be needed for the coldest part of the winter.

I will probably end up sewing tape loops and buttons on in place of the press studs when I get fed up with them parting company!

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor fill and they leak down everywhere., 2 May 2013

Very disappointed at the support offered, owing to the lack of filling. After a few nights the down seemed to be oozing from everywhere.

This review is from: Little Tikes Big Car Carrier (Toy)
Bought this for my grandson's 3rd birthday. He loves it so much he barely stops playing with it. He even tucks it up in bed with him some nights. The play possibilities he finds for it are also intriguing, many various items and other toys, deposited inside, being transported hither and thither, with him perched proudly on top. The two cars are also very well made and strong enough to take his full weight without risk of damage.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bees Knees, 12 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this stylish bell push to replace a supposedly 'Brass' one, bought from B&Q. The B&Q item, made by Byron, turned out to be plated, base metal, which lasted for around two years before corroding and starting to stick. This item, supplied by Original Forgery, was around the same price, it is polished cast brass and looks and feels a quality product. If you are looking for the real thing, this is it, thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect fit and great price, 25 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The filters were purchased for the INTEX pump supplied with the INTEX 10ft diameter pool and they fit perfectly. Good quality product and at less than a pound each, the price is amazing. Two so far have been used and each of these withstood washing out several times before needing replacement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value product, 25 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At the price, obviously a budget product, but more than adequate for normal use with MP3 players etc. I bought three initially, to try out the reliability and quality, I was impressed and have subsequently purchased three more. Both orders were fulfilled well within the promised normal delivery time and came well packaged. I would recommend the supplier and product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little repair kit, 25 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thoroughly recommended product that worked perfectly on a vinyl toy seat for my grandson, which had developed a puncture owing to enthusiastic bouncing during use. The glue dries very quickly, so swift spreading and application of the patch is essential, but the result is excellent, especially given the price. I would advise cutting a rounded patch to avoid vulnerable corners being left to catch and curl up during use.
