3.0 out of 5 stars Looked good at first - brighter than previous LED bulbs, 4 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looked good at first - brighter than previous LED bulbs. Just over a year later, 1 has died & the other 3 look like the glass has gone cloudy. That's probably why they don't look quite as bright now. Don't think I'll buy again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, 24 Aug. 2015

Slow start with a failure after a mile on their first outing. Needed to restart phone that time & no problems since, so suspect it was a phone problem rather than the headset. I like them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but expensive, 21 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are certainly much better than similarly specified cheaper bulbs.
There is no hint of flicker & none died immediately, so we are off to a good start.
I've taken a star off because of the price, but if they are all still working in a couple of years, then I guess it will have been worth it.

A few failures have been replaced, but given up on sending them back. Some still in use, but they don't look to be in good condition.
Won't be buying more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems to be good value to me, 19 Aug. 2011

With hindsight, I probably should have bought a longer cable...but that is clearly my fault. Quality seems to be fine, although I have no other cables to compare it to & probably don't have the best TV to show this stuff off anyway.

3.0 out of 5 stars Took some effort to get it working, 15 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty much took 2 whole days to get this working properly.
There were so many problems, which in the end seem to have come down to a duff wireless router (which had, until purchase of the Stora, seemed to be working OK).
Lucky I had a spare router sitting around, or the Stora would certainly have been sent back.
I'm still getting to grips with features other than backing up our laptops...but that is the main thing for me at the moment.

I have dropped a couple of * for:
1) not giving a single useful message when things weren't going so well &
2) I'm still not convinced about the reliance on the myStora website

It seems to be doing the main job ok & I think was good value (no drives)

2.0 out of 5 stars Good but didn't last long enough, 13 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought in July last year.
Have really enjoyed making pasta...from working out that you need to leave the sheets 10 minutes before cutting, to using in fantastic Delia lasagne recipe (with a few tweaks of course!)
However, the last couple of times I have used it, the pasta seems to be pulling to one side.
It was a little frustrating (sheets end up thinner at one end than the other), but now just completely infuriating (screwing the sheet up by the time it is half way through).
It is especially bad when getting down to the lowest setting, at which point, an inspection of the rollers makes the problem clear...the gap between rollers is much wider at one side.

I'm sure this could be repaired quite simply with some skill &/or good instruction.
Just can't find any info of this sort online or Imperia contact details (outside of Italy)

So, it has been fun...maybe I'll try 1 more. But I'm not going to keep spending £40 on a new machine every 15 months.
