5.0 out of 5 stars Does a good job, 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Replaced a pair of wipers that looked OK but left streaking across the window causing blurry vision and also screeched in light rain.

What a difference. Silent sweep and clear vision. Should have bought these ages ago.

Excellent so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kitchen gadget that actually gets used, 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this instead of the slightly cheaper models as it seems to have a lower wattage, which should hopefully help prevent the burning that other reviews have stated can happen. So far so good.
EDIT: After being asked by someone to double check wattage, I have discovered this item is 290w not 163w as in Amazons description (as per label under appliance and manufacterers website).
Big enough to fit a large chicken in (which just falls off the bone when finished).
Pot and lid dishwasher proof.
Not perfect - Non stick coating doesnt seem very tough so not sure about sliding it around on a hob for searing. No automatic or keep warm setting. No timer.

Verdict so far is that it has been used a few times, for chicken + potatoes, casserole, making ham from a gammon etc and so far has not ended up at the back of the cupboard yet like most gadgets that seemed a good idea at the time.


DiCAPac WP-410 Underwater Case
DiCAPac WP-410 Underwater Case

4.0 out of 5 stars Does a great job for the money, 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bit sceptical at first but daughter wanted to buy a cheap underwater camera /camcorder for her holiday.
Concluded after reading many reviews that the picture quality would not be great and it would also be a coin toss as to whether it would even survive being dipped.
Already have a Sony TX5, that would havecost an extortionate £300+ when released, as a waterproof camera. Trouble is it cost so much and stories of the manufacturers doing the typical wriggleing out of warranties when they leak (went too deep excuse etc etc that you cant prove for instance) I ended up being too scared to take it under water. Expensive mistake.
So the next option is underwater case. Proper cases cost a fortune so looked at this Dicapac with a cheap camera just in case it leaked.
Pros
Very cheap compared to a bespoke case
Fits various cameras
Did Not Leak (checked first as per instructions)
Can take it deeper than waterproof camera
Cons
Can be difficult to work controls
Can get black circle if lens not lined up properly (read other reviews for tips to avoid this such as foam strips)

So far - well worth the money

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but not cheerful, 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all let me say I own other Panasonic items and generally they are very good.
This camera had a cheap feeling straight out of the box but that still did not mean the optics and internals were not going to be OK (especially after the other seemingly good reviews). What a mistake.

Various sporadic faults -
Wont focus on zoom
Front shutter sticking
System error message coming up
Multitude of green lines covering picture when it is bright

Obviously returned to Amazon for a refund with Amazons great customer service giving peace of mind for when things go wrong

Maybe I had a bad one, but with so many faults on one unit it has certainly put me off the budget end of Panasonic for cameras.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get off my bin, 1 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are a bit anal like me when it comes to bin possesion then these are great. No more waiting behind the curtains, ready to pounce as soon as the bin men have emptied your bin. For 50p outlay for a sticker twinpack I can now sit back and relax, knowing that I would be able to identify and rescue my bin from the local bin pinching fiend while then plotting a suitable revenge eg. chemical weapon attack, bubonic plague etc (you get the picture).
These do stand out (look bigger than I expected) and have no idea how long they will last, but so far so good.
P.S. Have duplicated review on similar purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 1 May 2013

Cannot fault it at this sort of price. Looks good quality and seems to do its job well enough. Came in its own big box and had plastic covers to protect the terminals.

1.0 out of 5 stars Red hot and burning smell, 27 Feb 2012
Used for 5 mins before I noticed the unit had an electrical burning smell and was hotter than Megan Fox. Binned straight away as it was not worth the risk of damaging my phone or even worse. Noticed anouther review with the same problem so maybe not an isolated case.

1.0 out of 5 stars Big mistake, 22 Jun 2010
I purchased this item after looking for a natural, chemical free shampoo that is good for dandruff. This seemed to fit the bill after reading good reviews (I think by Greenies who just give a positive to anything good or bad just because its natural) and seemed reasonably priced. What a mistake.
Pros:
Natural product
Good starting price compared to other natural shampoos
Cons:
Had to use loads more than a normal shampoo to try and get a lather (so not as cost effective as first thought).
Smelt like Vics Cold chest rub.
Took me back to childhood stinging eye agony.(I know most sting to some extent).
Made my head itch.
To say I was dissapointed is an understatement as I held out great hopes. I had to throw it in the bin half used (which is unbelievable as I am as tight as they come) due to myself and the other half unable to use it.
We have now bought Body Shop Ginger (thinking that their products were natural but unfortunately they are not) which is great. P.S No I dont work for them and if people know of a natural alternative just as good then feel free to recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing quality for the price, 28 July 2009
Amazing picture quality .This is a Premium brand cable (not your chinese cheapy) that supports up to 1080p HD with 24K gold contacts and at a fraction of the price of a major retailer. Would recomend to anyone looking for a high end cable for the same price as a cheapy.
