Seems good value. will not know how good the filters are for a while yet. Still using the filters supplied with the new cooker hood. Pleased it came with a new carbon filter mat which for some reason the hood supplier (Bosch) does not seem to sell!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality but the old one wore out since August ..., 4 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to replace identical product . Good quality but the old one wore out since August 2010. The earpads were the main problem. One came off recently . Both had worn plastic covering.. I only used it about twice a week for about 1/2 hour when walking so the covering got worn by movement. The headband is a bit fragile too. I had to reinforce the two plastic sliding parts, which came apart, with black self amagamating tape. I might do that again -before they come apart. Sound quality is good. The noise cancelation is SO SO - but it also amplifies a bit too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not expensive so don't expect quality.Buy some drawing pins., 29 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this and a felt pad too. You need that. It's not expensive so don't expect super quality. It comes with ONE elastic strap thing to hold it to the board. No Instructions. I threw it away after a quick trial confirmed its uselessness. Too short/tight. Rips the tightening cord out of the cover.. I fixed it to the old board (compressed wood fibre I think) with about 2 dozen drawing pins (thumtacks) after wrapping the cover around the board edges. Put the tacks just in front of the corded edge. Much better solution . Also I loosened the screws holding the metal iron stand and used that to grip one end. I also used a few thumtacks to hold the felt pad while I trimmed it to size too. Left them in so it could not slip. So buy a box of thumtacks (if board is woodlike)!

Oh and there was a minor defect on the cover . Which by the way you need to iron after unpacking to get a neat fit. I think you also need to check if there is still a usable foil reflective layer on the board. Obviously if the board is metal my method won't work.

4.0 out of 5 stars It was OK, 11 Jun 2014

I needed to get alkaline batteries of this type because the smoke alarm is fussy and does not like long life lithium.
These work fine and last about a year. Cannnot get too excited about batteries so 4 stars for price delivery etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Watch - you will need to get the bracelet resized unless you have gorrilla-sized wrists, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived in less than a week despite Amazon saying more like 3 weeks.
After taking the watch to a local retailer to get some bracelet links removed, I
had to send it to the Citizen Service Centre to get a repair done! Seems the retailer damaged
it by removing pins that should not be removed. So check with any jeweler who says he can do it.

There is no real fine adjustment to the bracelet so mine is still a bit loose, the links are big. I might have to
buy a lot of pies!

Citizen service were brilliant!

Oh! about the watch? It's heavy but you get used to it. It was working and correctly adjusted on arrival - fully charged.
Just as well because the instructions are complex. there is a youtube video via the citizen website.

Seems this model does not have a screw down crown. Does not need it I suppose. So you can ignore those pages in the manual.
might update this review later.

TEAC T-R650DAB DAB/AM/FM Stereo Tuner (discontinued by manufacturer)

4.0 out of 5 stars Vey nice kit. Pity the AM does not seem to work in my lounge (as if I care), 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
User Interface and manual is very opaque. I mean it takes getting used to! FM DAB reception is good. AM loop antenna useless.
I am using a loft antenna for FM and an indoor DAB antenna (Philex) . As I live in a good DAB area DAB seems fine.
NOT ENOUGH DAB ot FM PRESETS THOUGH. But 10 is OK .Have not tried the timer functions. Probably won't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very impressed so far., 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Connections on the underside in a recess . No problems though. I taped the cables after connecting so they exit wothout getting trapped. Also a bit of strain relief.
You get a sponge bung for the rear facing port if you put the speaker near a wall. Can't say I noticed much difference.
Manual came on paper and CD. Yes you need a manual for a speaker! Look nnice. half the size of my old 100W speakers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks very useful - seems to have a few minor errors, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It will take me a while to get through it. A good revision text for fairly advanced students I found some errors in the exercisees at the end of the first chapter. Quite easy to spot though. Not grammatical errors just layout typos. Like you have to put a word in a space marked by an underscore which is missing . See the first exercise,

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a new licence so read on, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All I usually do is use the license key to upgrade/renew my already- installed NIS. This is the latest 2014 version. I got it for about £23. MUCH cheaper than Norton direct.
If you have some days left on an existing license you will lose them despite what is says on the renewal dialog BECAUSE it is a NEW license. BUT if you wait till one day before the old licence expires you get 366 days anyway. You can of course contact Norton to get your old days added back. Live chat is useful for this. Go via the support link as presumably you have it already installed.
So, 1 day before expiry of the old licence, I usually update 3 PC's by entering the license code. Helps to be logged onto your Norton Account too.
Good luck.Do all this BEFORE calling Norton to get your stolen days back.
I like the product but Norton is not very user friendly when renewing. Usually you get a free upgrade to the new version later in the year (autumn)

UPDATED SEPTEMBER 25 2014. SEE MY COMMENTS BELOW. IT'S NOW A GOOD TIME TO CLICK THE NORTON RENEW BUTTON IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A SUBSCRIPTION TO GET ONE MORE YEAR FOR NOT MUCH MONEY!!
