2.0 out of 5 stars They Don't Work on my HP Deskjet, 3 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quick enough delivery but the ink also quickly stopped working on my HP Deskjet. After going through the HP troubleshooting procedures it worked again, only for it to give up the next day. After a couple of days, nothing worked. I went out and bought fresh HP ink cartridges from Tesco's, fitted them and everything was fine again. I bought these replacement cartridges because the blurb said they were compatible with my HP printer. They weren't. To that extent they were a waste of money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Work, 19 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace my old Byron doorbell which had worked fine for several years. The TeckNet also worked well when testing it by using the remote while standing beside it. Indeed it was nice and clear and loud. But from the front door, 12 metres away, it is totally silent. And I was using a fresh battery. This product was simply not fit for purpose. Hopeless.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hugely Disappointing, 29 Aug 2011
Extremely disappointing. It is written in the first person, and as the author usually writes under the genre of "travel books", the presumption is that it is factual. Yet it is completely unbelievable. Even as a novel it fails miserably.

The conceit is that Randall goes to Boston to write a book but is sidetracked by the offer of a job as a private eye. In recounting his adventures he paints a two-dimensional picture of America and Americans. His formula seems to be to take every European prejudice against Americans and superimpose those onto each of his characters. I don't mean it is written with any spite. On the contrary, it is meant to be an affectionate and witty commentary. But it comes across as plodding and amateurish, not helped by the writer's style which dictates that any sentence should never contain ten words when twenty would do.
