3.0 out of 5 stars Very Buggy, but looks and views well. Be aware, is a issue ladend Mini HDMI port and no supplied cable., 17 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First the major cons:

I wanted this as a portable screen for my Mac Mini. It said it had an HDMI port so that would be fine. Unfortunately not the case. Firstly it has an HDMI port, but its a mini port, not a full sized HDMI port as stated in the description. So that's a £12 extra you need to spend as a mini HDMI cable is not included. Secondly, the port doesn't work with any of the five devices I tried to connect to it. Mac Mini, Samsung TV, Sony DVD Player, etc, etc... Just a Blue screen on the AV setting. The other issue is that it would intermitently let out a death curdling scream like warble, that sounded like a dying bird, dreadful. Amazon gave me the email address of the manufacturer, but nothing heard.

As others have said, its inbuilt ariel is totally inadequate for most UK TV locations. Works fine if you have a loft or roof mounted aerial, but that just defeats the portability benefit. However, TV was not the main reason for purchasing this item. The remote control is a bit hit and miss if you stand too close to the screen, so you need to be at least 2 meters away for a consistently good connection. The sound is incredibly tinny from the in-built speakers, but surprisingly good from connected headphones, but they were Bose.

As to the positives. It has a good solid build quality and looks very nice. The picture quality is also very good and the screen can be viewed from a number of angles without noticeable picture quality loss. I have not tried the battery only operation, but if it achieves over 2 hours that's not bad.

Unfortunately, I have had to send mine back, as it is not fit for my purpose and possibly might be faulty, shame. Normal hassle free response form Amazon.

Recommended by Dave on Daves world of fun stuff (youtube). He was spot on. This is really a must if you care for you guitars, or any wood instrument. Also looks like it will last a long while, as you don't need to use much. Top marks.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit of Retro Fun and its a Mobile!!!!, 21 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The phone arrived as stated. It was easy to setup using Bluetooth, haven't used a sim as yet, but works really well in Bluetooth mode. The build quality is extremely good for the price and battery life is amazing. Call quality is okay but not outstanding, hence four stars. Its certainly a conversation piece and a few people have asked where I bought it as they wanted to buy one. If you need the facilities of a smart phone look elsewhere, but for a bit of Retro fun for not a lot of folding, its a winner.

1.0 out of 5 stars ******* Triple A. Avoid, Avoid, Avoid *********, 19 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to say if I could give this product no stars at all that would be a better description. The three components arrived late and on opening the cistern package half the side of the cistern was laying in the bottom broken. I contacted Better (Joke) Bathrooms who sent out a replacement which was also broken. A third replacement was also sent out which the delivery driver said "theres no point me taking this off the van as its clearly broken. On opening the box in his van, it again had a complete side smashed. In all three cases the packaging was not damaged, so i can only surmise that it was packed in a broken condition in the factory. My plumber, who I have used for many years, came to look at the pan, which was in one piece and said he would not like to screw this into the floor as he was concerned that the bottom part of the toilet pan was too thin. I would suggest that is probably the cause of the cistern breakages i.e. its walls are too thin.

Better Bathrooms have offered a full refund, so i will update this review if and when I receive it, but this fiasco has put my downstairs bathroom renovation out by two weeks. Not at all happy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality and keen price, but not universal compatibility., 8 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are much better quality than the LG supped passive glasses that feel like they've been manufactured in the jelly factory. Unfortunately they don't work with my new LG 4K Ultra High Def TV as they give a ghosting at the bottom of the screen, hence the 4 stars. However they work fine with my old LG HD smart TV which is now in our spare room.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gives a good strim and edge, but let down by two key issues., 6 Oct 2014
This is a very acceptable strimmer/edger, and when working with a full battery charge and new blade does a very good job. However, it is terribly let down by very poor battery life (around 12 to 15 minutes) which starts to deteriorate around 9 minutes into a cut and blades that snap when they come into contact with anything tougher than grass. They do supply you with a pack of 24 blades, but I normally have to use 2 or 3 on one cut. If you have a small garden the battery should last, but larger gardens will need two to three charges to complete a full strim and edge. Personally i don't want to be doing this all day long, so for me, not fit for purpose. Perhaps Gtech should consider offering a removable battery pack model so a spare or two can be separately kept on charge, and more robust blades.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok clip tuner, but needs some tweaking., 30 Sep 2014
This is very good for the price. However, I have not given it 5 stars as it indicates a string to be in tune when its actually slightly flat. To get around this, tune the string slightly sharp then it actually will be in tune. This test was run using 5 different guitars, electric, acoustic and bass. I used my Peterson bench tuner as the model, its incredibly accurate. So, nothing to stop you buying it, just needs a bit of a tweaking. I purchased two of this model and both exhibit the same problem, so it doesn't seem like a fault. If you have one i would be interested in your comments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Cables!!, 30 Sep 2014

This is my 5th cable from this manufacturer. They are by far the best you can buy at this price and above. Works great with my new 4K TV no lag or stutter with 4K content.

Would fully recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Let down by erratic behaviour., 30 Sep 2014
This could be very good, but its let down by intermittent bad behaviour. Mine ran fine for 30 minutes, but then went into a Nunlock mode with only only numeric keys working. The solution was to take the battery out leave it overnight, which seemed to reset the keyboard.

The keyboard now working then started duplicating keystrokes soooooo thinggggs woullllld comeee out like that. it also decides to put itself in Caps mode, which is not too much of a problem, but its not correct. As others have said the quoted wifi range is well exaggerated, much beyond 8 feet line-of-sight and its idiosyncratic behaviour become wild, or just stops working.

I did email eSynic who responded within a day, but apart from sending me a description of what the Function keys did, was not a lot of help.

Giving it the benefit of the doubt, I am assuming mine has a fault, so I will be sending it back. Shame because I do like the form factor.

I think lesson learnt here is to pay more and get a brand name.

These are made of very poor quality metal. Both screws snapped with virtually no pressure applied. Lesson pay more and get better quality elsewhere.
