5.0 out of 5 stars Looks good, sounds good, 26 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one of these to take away on holiday on the basis of other reviews here on Amazon. This is a great little device, small, lightweight, well made and the sound quality is excellent for something so small. It works very well connected to my HTC Desire.

Note that the price varies by colour (??!!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great case, 5 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm amazed at the quality of this case for the price. It's well made, a perfect snug fit and aesthetically pleasing. I've had mine for a few weeks now and it still looks as good as new with no stretching. No problems using phone volume controls or power switch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty Of Function For The money, 27 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great little amp...well actually it's quite big size wise. I've linked up my Virgin Cable box and a Blue-ray player using the two optical audio inputs and it's great. In total it has 4 HDMI inputs which seems to be good for something at the budget end of the market. I use a set of Pioneer surround sound speakers I've had for years because I like them....I'm sure purists will turn their noses up but they sound OK

The automatic setup using the included microphone is good. Saves hours of fiddling with settings.

Things to note:

If you're a technophobe this will blow your mind, there are setup options on the options on the options. Give up now.
You need a powered (active) subwoofer - it won't drive a passive one (doh!) If you haven't got one you'll have to spend at least another 80 quid.
It comes with a continental two pin plug. Shame Amazon don't ship an adaptor with it like Pixmania would.

1.0 out of 5 stars Intermittent problems - Don't risk it!, 5 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After periods of non use, when the TV was next switched on there was no picture from my Virgin V+ box. Pulling the cable in and out usually kicked it into life. It got to the point this was happening every morning after the TV had been off overnight.
Virgin said try a new cable and I told them not to daft.....but then I read the reviews of this cable and started to believe it may be the cable.
I'm not saying pay silly money for cables - I got another cable for a similar price elsewhere and it's fine.
I can't 100% prove the cable is rubbish and others have left reviews saying it's fine but why take the risk?

1.0 out of 5 stars Good In Parts, 5 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't let the fancy branded packaging fool you, this is yet another cheap no name Chinese knock out.

The manual only gives you the basic setup. All the clever stuff like FTP,email etc you have to figure out yourself.
I've found, after many hours experimentation that only the basics work via wireless e.g. setup and viewing the live video. The clever stuff like FTP etc only works when the thing is hard wired. The supplied DDNS site address appears to be non-existent.

I happen to have a spare wireless router so I've hard wired it to that set up as an access point so I can get the camera to send using FTP from a remote location in the house. I had expected the camera's wireless to cope but it didn't.

Tech support seemed polite but ineffectual. They've had to send my query back to the manufacturer in China.

Picture is OK indoors but get anywhere near daylight and it washes out, pan and tilt works well and night vision is quite good also.

Verdict - if you want something that'll work and that you can rely on then spend some more money and get something decent. This is cheap for a reason. I'm sending it back! Neil Young sums this product up fairly well....Piece of Crap

4.0 out of 5 stars OK - If you can get into the packaging!, 21 Nov 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been in IT for over 30 years, many of them using MS products. I have an IQ of around 140. It took me five minutes to get into the stupid, fiddly plastic packaging. Absolutely appalling design - unless it was designed as a MENSA puzzle!

Then I tried to activate the full key having been using a 60 day free trial key. That in itself is an adventure. The instructions provided were useless. The instructions on the internet were useless but I got there in the end.

The product itself is fine and great value but they don't half make you work for it. 0/10 for packaging, 0/10 for activation instructions, 8/10 for the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Does What It Says On The Tin!, 26 April 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a great little radio with very good DAB and FM reception. The small speaker is not brilliant but I expected that. If I use my Sony headphones or plug it into an external amp it's great.

The FM reception is better than the other radios in the house. It's easy to use. The DAB reception cannot be faulted.

The only major annoyance is that it wasn't delivered with a suitcase full of used ten pound notes :-D

Can't fault the radio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very small, Big sound. Excellent Value, 10 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very nicely made piece of kit. It's very small and light and looks great.

No special software required, just drop files onto it via Explorer. When you disconnect from the USB it re-indexes itself in a few seconds.

The sound is good though I have only used it with good Sony headphones.

Early indications on battery life are good.
At the price it's brilliant alternative to an overpriced iPod. Go for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars It Grinds Pepper!, 12 Aug 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Peugeot pepper grinder does what it says - grinds pepper - as it should at this kind of price.

It can be adjusted from very fine to very coarse however, to get it from coarse back to fine setting I have to turn it upside down and activate the grinder to get course grains out of the grinding mechanism.

The guarantee is only valid, they claim, if the card is stamped by the supplier which it was not.

All in all, it does a good job.

Dec 2012 - still going strong. Obviously not the same Peugeot that makes cars :D
