A rather crude looking item which has worked satisfactorily in occasional use. More time is needed to find out whether the prongs will stand up to serious digging.

Very reasonable price.

Product is incompatible with Macs. This was not made clear in the blurb. It has already been returned to Amazon.

I ordered two similar Samsung UE19?4000 19-inch TVs.

The first, (Samsung UE19ES4000 19-inch Widescreen HD Ready LED TV) had to be returned because there was a serious fault with the sound system, the second (Samsung UE19F4000 19-inch Widescreen HD Ready LED TV is entirely satisfactory. and the

Unfortunately, I have attached the favourable review to the faulty item. Please transfer it to this item.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good for its price, 17 Jun 2014

Buying decision based on very reasonable price. I had previously had to return another, more expensive mandoline which was didn't work well. This one works but, being brittle-seeming plastic, it will probably be short-lived. We shall see.

The slicing function works well and the chipping reasonably well. I'm unlikely to use the grating function and haven't bothered to find out how it works. If I want to grate, I shall use my old-fashioned steel grater

The problem with slicing is that only one thickness is available, too thick for making crisps or slicing cucumber etc. This could have been remedied with more thought. The problem with chipping is that decent thick chips can't be produced, so I may revert to my ancient chipper.

For the limited slicing operation alone, it is worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the box. Good name, reasonable price, modest size., 17 Jun 2014

Chosen because Samsung TVs were Best Buys in Which magazine, although this model is too small and too cheap to interest Which.

Much better than its large CRT predecessor (same size screen).

Living in a small cottage, a relatively small screen is ideal, and if 16" or 17" had been available, I would have chosen that size. The delivery man commented "Bedroom TV?" but it is the only TV in the house, quite large enough for a small living room, and the space gained by wall-mounting it is very welcome

4.0 out of 5 stars Good keyboard, good price, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very satisfactory, not perfect. Apple compatible although it didn't say so on the blurb. Very modest price for a big-name product.

Bought to replace an Apple keyboard which had a few keys had died. Some keys on the Microsoft keyboard are located differently but the outcome is that keys produce what Apple would expect rather than what shows on the keys.

Sometimes misses a double letter if the key is pressed too quickly.
