2.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, 27 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Initially I was happy with this ... a very close shave ... But some words of caution. Firstly it cant be used when the battery is being charged .. so ifs flat on a monday morning and youre late for work its a problem. The battery seemed to last OK for the first year, and then the warning lights failed and the battery started to last less and less ... now it only lasts for one or two shaves. The blades went blunt quite quickly but I wont replace as the unit is clearly close to failing. Will probably go back to Braun next time. Still it was cheap and may be OK as a backup razor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius Product, 14 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ive had this ring now for over a year, but have waited to review as we only use it occasionally. Like any hob you need to get used to it. It does get the pans very hot very quickly, and the simmer cycles on and off which is a bit disconcerting at first. It can be a little noisy with the fan on, and you need to remember to let it cool down before you switch off. All that being said, its easy to use and clean, and does the job very well indeed and at this price its really quite a bargain.

3.0 out of 5 stars Odd !, 28 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Initially I was pleased as it played in a dead blu ray player (disk not recognised errors were showing) and it played a nice animation and registered the speakers etc .... so was hopeful when I inserted a dvd to play ... only to find the error was still there.

I think it may well cure certain types of dirty lens errors ... and its cheap enough ... but looking around its more likely I had a burnt out blue laser ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says, 28 Jun 2013

I spent a long time looking for this and was happy when it arrived I was happy with the quality (since it has to last 5 years) ...
Would have preferred a blank cover but thats hardly a complaint...

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldnt make it work, 28 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the instructions were clear, it would connect OK to the router but not the internet, making it more or less useless. I have a lot of experience in this area, and have bought many devices over the years, this is the first that I could not make work. Perhaps it would if the router were also netgear ?

Whether you like the series or not, the DVDs were well priced and packaged .... didnt bother with blu-ray as I will only watch once or twice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow but deadly !, 27 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Be careful. This is very strong stuff. Initially I thought I had made it too weak (125ml for 3L), or it rained too soon after application (12 hours) but after a about 8 days everything it touched withered and died ... !

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware registration, 12 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ive bought educational versions at school and wanted CS4 for uni. The first time i went through a distributor who handled the registration quickly. 5 days afters Amazons delivery i am still waiting for the serial from Adobe (they say between 1 and 3 working days). Looking at their forum confirmed my own terrible experience with their customer service is their standard.(actually there is none at all... calls not answered after hours of waiting, on-line chat folk that never are available ..... their web site is continually changing as are phone numbers ... never seen such a mess... EVER)
