Hozelock 7L Standard Garden Sprayer

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 16 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does the job pretty well. Useful shoulder strap for support when in use with a full tank. Takes a bit of practice to balance 'pressure' against required 'fineness' of spray. Have bought an extension lance to avoid having to stoop when in use.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good!, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my first smart phone and so far, after a bit of practice, I've found it easy to use. Internet, phone, texting, photos, video and google searches all excellent. I've only given it 4 stars because:- 1. I haven't tried all the facilities yet and 2. It is so slim it has a tendency to slip out of my hand on occasions. This is probably my carelessness as I'm at the higher end of the age range! Will get a cover for it shortly which will probably solve that problem.

Got this for an amazingly low price from Amazon on Black Friday.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent replacement charger, 11 Oct. 2013

My daughter lent me her HP Pavilion laptop while she is working abroad but the charger couldn't be found! Ordered this replacement charger which was delivered quickly, performs well and was very reasonably priced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 4 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my daughter as she is a DJ and needed a digital recorder for live performance and mixing line level and mic inputs. There are several brands on the market but the TASCAM's particular strength is its ability to handle true high level line input signals and also record secondary tracks at -6dB in the event of distortion occurring in the primary tracks.

Before handing it over to her, I tested it myself to transfer some old tape recordings to both .wav and mp3. formats for transfer to optical media via. the internal memory card. The results were very good. So far, my daughter has no complaints and found it very useful in her work.

4.0 out of 5 stars An economic solution to a failed Canon charger, 26 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This inexpensive charger is an excellent replacement for my original Canon charger which failed after three years. The only oddity is that when I use it whilst uploading from my (tape) camcorder to my PC it prevents automatic control of the camera by my software.

Possibly due to simpler filtering circuitry in the charger keeping manufacturing costs down. This is not problem as I have a high capacity batter in the camcorder. A good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Meets my expectations, 26 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been testing this product under various conditions, both indoors and out. The photographic definition is good and the single shot, triple shots and movie modes work as expected both indoors, outdoors and through glass (at least in daylight). I have noticed that under movie mode with 15 second recordings, used inside a reasonably lit room (daylight) there is sometimes oscillation of light level between groups of frames (I have tested this in my movie editing software) as if the aperture cannot reach a stable state and shows as flashing when the movie is played back. This must be at a particular threshold of light that I can't detect visually. Once the light level is below this point the IR mode kicks in and the picture becomes gray scale as expected, although quite good definition.

I am using four re-chargeable batteries at present which at 1.2 volts average each trigger the low battery voltage indicator when I first switch on. I suspect the device may actually have been designed for 1.5 volt Alkalines. It may be that this is a factor in the flashing light level referred to above. However, everything works fine and I am waiting to see at what voltage level the camera won't actually work.

As has been mentioned by other reviewers, positioning of the camera is crucial to trapping images of movement after 5 seconds but in general the product is pretty good and works as described.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, 2 Oct. 2009
I bought this case for my daughter to protect her recently replaced iPod Classic. I was impressed by the smart appearance, very snug and secure fit to the iPod and, like several others reviewers, the magnetic catches holding the flip lid. Good value for money in my opinion and my daughter is more than happy with it.
