1.0 out of 5 stars Good quality printing but too many flaws., 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This printer has a very large footprint - 370 x 460mm - given that it's just a standard A4 inkjet. It spends 55-60 seconds cleaning heads etc before it starts printing. When it finally starts it's quick and the print quality is good. Setup was difficult and required a lot of time speaking to Canon helpline. It seems the WiFi sensitivity is low so it needs to be very close to the hub and PC to operate. 3metres is too far in this house! If set up for WiFi you can't easily change to USB connection. First you have to uninstall the drivers, then the printer, then re-install everything from the start using the CD supplied. I don't know why, but it won't print invoices from the Amazon website; it claims the printer is not connected. So I have to cut and paste into Word, when it will print. This printer was purchased to replace a Canon IP 3600 which failed permanently after only using one set of ink cartridges. My next printer will be a different make.

The quality of singing is of course superb, given the artists, but for me the voices don't blend well and there is too much vibrato throughout. I would recommend 'Great Oratorio Duets' by Carolyn Sampson and Robin Blaze, which has many of the same arias. These voices blend and intertwine beautifully and they don't impose their own style too much.

This stand is made of hard plastic. It looks and feels quite flimsy, but it works perfectly well, it folds very small and I've had no problems with using it with a Nexus.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wireless alarm., 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very useful alarm, since the alarm unit can be placed a long way from the detector. Mine detects a small dog 10 metres away. The alarm can be set to be very loud. The detector cannot be switched off, so must use batteries continuously. Note the alarm unit is not weatherproof. The detector unit is supposedly sealed, but although mine is mounted under a roof overhang, it started giving frequent false alarms after two rainy days. It was found to have so much water in it that it gurgled when shaken. This leakage is not due to damage or loose fastenings, but to apparently inadequate seals. I understand that additional detector units are available from the manufacturers.

I have treated two synthetic garments and one cotton one with this spray, following the instructions exactly. This has produced no noticable improvement in waterproofing; the garments quickly become saturated in only moderate rain.

3.0 out of 5 stars USB Webcam, 22 Dec 2013

This is easy to connect and start to use. It gives a reasonable resolution picture, not quite as good as the built-in camera in a Nexus tablet. But it comes with no instructions. Does anyone know how to use the zoom and lights?

3.0 out of 5 stars works well but some problems, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This app is easy to use and intuitive. I had no problems making connections. But despite setting it for other currencies, top up can only be made in US dollars. So I've given up on it.

This review is from: Shazam (App)
I bought this to help me identify classical music. It failed every test I gave it, even though some were extremely easy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful, 19 July 2013

It's cheap and so not too much can be expected. It was easy to install, and it just about works OK, but the magnet closures fall off or fall apart too often.
