2.0 out of 5 stars A constant unreasonable expense., 22 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a very infrequent user of a Kodak ESP1.2 all in one printer who has what appears constantly to have to replenish ink cartridges, whether they be monochrome, as this 'XL' product, or colour.

It is obvious that use of ink is related to pages printed in black and white or colour/cleaning the print heads, but I don't recall reading that it was recommended to leave the printer turned on all the time, as switching off and on used up a lot of ink--a recommendation given to me by Kodak over the phone when I challenged them about the longevity of their consumable products.

This advice should also be made more prominent to customers, also to print where possible in black and white and in 'draft' quality.

I am aware of printer manufacturers being very much reliant on selling consumables such as ink, but they also have a duty of care towards their customers, which seems not to be very evident.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not easy to change stations/re-tune, 22 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Such a difficulty registering online, and requiring you first to open an account! Eventually had to chat on-line with Philips.

Usual Philips dependable quality, but not easy to change stations, needing the user's handbook to be consulted, hopefully only until familiarity with the product/procedure is achieved.

A less expensive item than a recently purchased Pure One Classic DAB, but consequently a bit too 'fiddly', unless mainly intended to listen to only one station.

2.0 out of 5 stars Returned to Amazon as could not get support from Toshiba., 6 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am sure this product is fine, but initially, downloading from the hard drive assumes you know how to connect/power-up the drive in the first place. The connection illustration provided was totally inadequate. Finding the manual link on-line was impossible, and a phone call to Toshiba was not returned, so hence the immense frustration trying to setup a brand new product.

If the customer has initial difficulty getting the basic instructions, and is otherwise faced with expensive help-line phone charges, any benefit the product is claimed to offer, will be immediately negated.

It seems to be the practice nowadays for manuals to be on a CD or other device, and very seldom in the form of a physical booklet you can hold and read. It's time the manufacturers considered the end-users' interests more, and not what appears to be technically 'slick'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Operational claims, 11 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just received very promptly by post, after ordering on 9th. April Bank Holiday Monday, and seems to work fine, after first asking seller as to suitability for webcam use away from fixed PC, in other more remote domestic locations. Will keep under review, but so far, am pleased with seller's claims; also no visible webcam picture degradation. Much cheaper as an alternative to buying a wireless web-camera, as initially considered.

3.0 out of 5 stars Suitability of item for wheeled desk-chairs, 27 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The suitability of this item is still under my review, to establish if unevenness/depressions are made in the plastic surface from using a wheeled desk-chair, and with the normal wear of an average-weighted user. If this is to happen, the item is not 'fit for purpose', and will need to be returned for a refund. A few 'dents' in the plastic surface are already visible, after only a week's use, so I'll be keeping a close eye on its performance and suitability for which it is advertised and sold.
