AmazonBasics 10- to 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder with CD Shred
AmazonBasics 10- to 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder with CD Shred
Price: 38.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Price for Solid Performer, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After loads of use my shredder has worn out and I was looking for a replacement. I had really simple criteria:

Must shred multiple sheets of paper.
Must cope with paperclips or staples
Must shred a credit card
Must be cross-cut or confetti cut
Prefer simple square storage bin
Prefer option to shred CD/DVD

What can I say... there are loads of makes & models but the prices escalate very quickly.

This item was relatively cheap compared to other makes, it does all the things I want & the build quality seems solid. I'm pleased with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Squeezebox Fixed!, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are too many of these adaptors on sites like Amazon & eBay, and it's difficult to tell them apart. I went for this item in the end to replace a power supply (suspected faulty) for a Squeezebox 3 (Classic). Plugged In.... working can i tell it apart from the original = not really, is it better than the others = no idea. But, it works and it does what it says in the advert! :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap & Effective, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There isn't a lot i can say about this item. The case i was sent is as pictured. It is cheap & it does the job. I wanted this for storage (for which it's perfect) - i would suggest that if you were looking to carry it around then it's bulky, because of the way it's made. For a such a low price, i'm please with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Piece of Kit, 28 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As others have said previously, this was awkward to setup... which unless you are already using similar addresses, requires to you disconnect your computer from the router, re-configure the IP address (manual) configure the device via a point to point cable, and then restore all your original computer settings!

Once into the device the screens are simple & clear and configuration of the unit into one of the "working modes" was simple.

I used it as a "Client" effectivly making this a WIFI aerial for a tv which only has a fixed ethernet port.

In terms of the Wifi the setup was simple, although lacked feedback (no signal metre / speed or positive connection information) - It also needed to know the MAC address (unusual for Wifi connection, although simple as it identified it through the air).

Anyway - connected and working, it's small neat and does the job i needed. I would recommend & i'm thinking of buying another!

2.0 out of 5 stars Lack of Suction, 28 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We purchased this from Amazon, based primarily on good review comments. The VAX appears to be well made & well specified however.... it doesn't suck!

I bought this vacuum to clean the floor. All the fancy accessories are nice, but at the end of the day this machine doesn't seem to be powerful enough (AIR WATTS). In fact, the suction on this VAX struggles to power the "air driven" brush when on a carpeted floor. I've returned this, and am looking for a more powerful model.

All credit to Amazon customer service, for accepting the return & refunding my money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Printer - Would Recommend, 20 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a simple, good quality inkjet printer for colour documents & photos. With this product - that's exactly what i got.

The onboard network card & web print server is a real bonus meaning that it can be connected directly to your router and shared with other people.

The cartridges are a little expensive (genuine) although there are alternatives available - but you have to remember that when you replace the cartridge it's not just the ink... you're also replacing the print head as well - which should extend the life of the printer.

A great product - and for around 60 you can't go far wrong.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Luggage Straps, 8 July 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pacsafe StrapSafe 100 (Misc.)
The straps are strong and easy to fit. The Lock is easy to use and i passed through the USA without problems. The only comment i would make is that the locking mechanism is a bit bulky, and doesn't sit that well on a hard case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Lock, 8 July 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really was pleased when i received this lock.
It's a decent piece of equipment, well made, strong & the flexible wire makes it very easy to fit to your luggage... the only problem was the TSA official who searched my bag (while travelling in the US) also liked it, because after checking my bag he somehow forgot to re-fit the lock onto it!

4.0 out of 5 stars HTC S710, 11 Mar 2008
This is a great device, that tries to bring together a number of technical features and pack them into a single product. For the most part it suceeds.

The S710 is a good phone. The Windows Mobile 6 operating system (like it or hate it) is currently the latest version from Microsoft, and many of the teething problems from previous O/S versions have been solved.

Personally i prefer the "non-touch screen" devices, as i find them easier to use, and you can do far less damage with your ear during a call!

I've been using my S710 for about 2 weeks, and i agree with many of the reviews & comments - it's great but it's not perfect:

1 - It is underpowered.. it does have to work hard for some actions, and there can be a noticable delay on the screen refresh which can give the impression that the phone has died. It has not, you just have to wait a few seconds.

2 - Because of the design of the "internal" keyboard the phone is a bit bulky (about 20mm deep). It's not really a problem, but when you add a case, you do notice the bulge in the pocket!

That said, i don't have any other problems with it. I don't find the screen mechanism flimsy or weak... when the phone is closed it's as solid as any other, when its open then you tend to be pressing on the keyboard rather than the screen.

If i had any complaint it would be that the software (WM6) still lacks a few features that would help make it perfect. But the hardware is good, the software can be upgraded - so i guess we will see more improvements to this in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars HTC S710 Krusell Case, 4 Mar 2008
This is a super case, made of high quality leather and finished very well.

But, it's not perfect - Firstly the design means that when the case is closed/fastened you cannot insert the charging/sync lead in the bottom of the phone... no big problem you just need to undo the clasp. Secondly the case is a bit bulky, adding almost 6mm to the depth of the phone, but thats the price for protecting the phone inside.

The case is strong, and will certainly protect the phone inside. I am very happy with it and would recommend it.
