2.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic Microwave, 30 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The machine suffered from complaints raised in previous reviews - lifting of the plastic screen behind he door and subsequent condensation on the door glass. No mention is made of this in the handbook, but in the questions and answers section of the Panasonic website the occurrence is accepted as normal. Small gaps are deliberate in fixing the inside screen to allow for pressure equalisation. However this does not explain the plastic sheet lifting.
The machine has a larger than average capacity, higher power output, clever electronics and pleasant appearance and functions well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Duracell CEF 23P battery charger, 25 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am so satisfied with the UK/Euro model of this charger that I bought a similar one for my caravan.
The only superficial difference that I can see is the addition of a couple of universal power plugs.

I like :
The ability to charge either one, two, three or four batteries at a time.
The ability to charge AA and AAA batteries at the same time.
The sensor that cuts off the charge once the battery is charged (green light)
the fact that batteries do not appear to be cooked

One minor dislike
The mains plug appears tobe stationed upside down. The front cover is hinged at the base and has the natural instinct to fall open..............

2.0 out of 5 stars HP multipack 364 ink, 10 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The deceptive description has been mentioned in previous reviews. The black in the four colour 4-pack is not photo black - or if it is the cartridge will not fit in the C309 printer.

To make good the shortfall I ordered three individual photo black cartridges. The package was delivered several days after the forecast date and contained one item as opposed to the three required. The response from the supplier was a cursory apology and a promise that the mistake would be remedied in a couple of days. The outstanding two cartridges arrived five further days later.

The ink itself is satisfactory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kingfisher 12 Litre Backpack Pressure Sprayer 12L, 27 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sprayer arrived on time and in good order.
The size is practical for a pensioner as larger models become unwieldy and too heavy.
The design is similar to a previous sprayer that I used for years before the lance developed a series of leaks that were very difficult to repair. It remains to be seen whether this model gives improved performance in that respect.
Three spray heads are supplied which between them offer condiderable flexibility - single moderate spray, twin head for use with a large number of bushes, and a wide angle spray which is very useful for spraying grass. However I miss the ability to adjust the nozzles between fine spay and jet. This facility is convenient when dealing with tall fruit trees when a standard spray will not reach the upper foliage.

Delivery excellent in good packaging. Very easy to install with ingenious but simple attachment to Monitor. Very little experience with webcams but reports from Skype users are very complimentary on the performance of both camera and mircrophone

4.0 out of 5 stars HP 364 ink, 11 Dec 2011
The ink was delivered in good order and in quick time. This package is useful for top up purposes rather than a full scale exchange of cartridges . HP ink is good and the 364 cartridges are very simple to change in the C309 series of 3 in 1s. Watch out for hidden price rise by a reduction in the potential number of printed pages advertised on the packing

4.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic Bagged Upright Vacuum Cleaner 1900w, 3 Sep 2010
This is a powerful but basic vacuum cleaner, and is very good value. Pleased to find a machine without all of the unwanted frills. However as it is so powerful, I offer one small modification to advantage. The extension for the lance and dusting brush has two bleed holes to regulate the suction, but there is no facility to adjust the suction to the main carpet cleaning head. With a new machine and an empty dust bag the cleaner will pick up the carpet which is irritating.

There was a delay in delivery, but this was resolved quickly and courteously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5, 4 Feb 2009
Panasonic - Lumix DMC-TZ5 black

An outstanding product at the Christmas offer price. For me, an enthusiastic amateur, it offers good results in all aspects of use - the lens is astonishing, the screen superb with very clear prompts and the instructions simple to understand.
I found a. It took a while to learn the wide range of macro use.
b. Twin switches for W and T preferable to the single coarse swing type
c. I prefer a smooth zoom for editing on playback as opposed to the jumped multiple magnification
