2.0 out of 5 stars Very cheap plastic frame, 25 Aug. 2015

Really cheap plastic. Very disappointed, though it was not very expensive. I guess you get what you pay for...

1.0 out of 5 stars Great at first, quickly very bad!!, 25 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first week we were astounded at how quiet this was. But as the days went on, it got louder and louder and louder!

3 months later it is unusable as it is so annoying. I wonder how many other 5* reviews are from the first week....

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless in the UK !, 7 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: QuickBooks Pro 2015 (PC) (DVD-ROM)
Useless for the UK. Bank transaction downloads are limited to American Express or Barclays bank! So if you bank with Natwest, Lloyds, RBS, Co-Op, Sandander or ANY OTHER bank you will NOT be able to get your transactions.

Even worse than this, you can NOT import .CSV or .OFX files! I've never used an accounting product that did not import OFX files. And just to annoy us even more, when you click on help about importing bank transactions, it states you can use the Utilities/import command to import OFX files! This does NOT work in the UK.

Spent two hours on the free telephone support (which you only get by registering the product, making refunds impossible), only to be finally told that they are working on banking integration for the UK and the help system is copied from the USA!!

If you bank with Amex or Barclays this may be okay, but the other 85% of the UK this product will be a complete waste of money unless you only have a few transactions per month, in which case I suggest you use a pen and paper....

1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless, 11 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had no idea a product could be so time consuming yet so useless. Requires multiple sprays in the same area to "dye" the grass green, which then disappears within a couple of hours. Complete waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great as a dog kennel monitor!, 11 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We use this as a dog monitor in their outdoor kennel. Great for remote operation (can move the camera in all directions and zoom in, plus communicate with dogs) and temperature check is extremely useful. Kennel is approx. 60m from the monitor and works perfectly. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality and great for bird and squirrel food, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought two of these, one for squirrel food, one for mixed bird food.

Quality is super, with a very sturdy scoop and scoop handle.

Not the cheapest, but definitely worth it for it's practicality and looks in the kitchen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite how it looks in the picture...., 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty well constructed and easy to screw together, but quite different from the picture. The base is far less "ornate", and the top screws straight into the water bath, again not so ornate.

The biggest issue really is the depth (or lack of it) for the water. The picture makes it look like it is quite deep, but the actual item allows only for approx. 1cm of water depth, so I can imagine I'll be topping it up a lot.

Reasonable value for money, just not entirely what I expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality, good price, 7 Mar. 2014

These, and the other sizes, are well-made and sturdy and tremendously useful. If you are giving documents to customers, they have a built-in card holder which makes your handouts look good.

Highly recommended in all sizes.


Modern Signalling Handbook
Modern Signalling Handbook

Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but not quite enough detail...., 7 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a useful but slightly basic book. All the information you need is there, just not quite to enough level of detail. Each section sort of ends too soon for me - I wanted more detail - so as a summary I think this book is useful to get to grips with the basics, but didn't really do it for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent read but too many errors!, 7 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the defacto reading on this subject, and remains a good book. But this edition is riddled with typos and errors that the annoyance distracted from what is fundamentally a good read. Shame.
