1.0 out of 5 stars This edition is not a good buy, 16 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was disappointed by this Kindle edition. It claimed to have been "scanned" from the 1830 edition. I therefore assumed that I would see images of the original pages of the book. However, this is not the case. With the exception of some illustrations, there are no scans of the pages, just a very very poor OCR version of the text, with many many errors. If I had in addition to the OCR text the original images, I could check whenever the text does not seem to make sense for the original, but since the scans are not included, this is not possible. I suggest do *not* buy this version of the book.

My 8-year old granddaughter seems to have enjoyed this a lot, although I haven't seen inside it myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not brilliant, 15 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this Slinky because the previous one I bought (for half the price) was shorter than the ones that I remember from my childhood, and did not walk down the stairs properly. This one is a lot better, but it still doesn't walk down the stairs as well as I remember from my childhood.

The "User Manual" (a grandiose name for a slip of paper) was completely unintelligible.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really worth the money, 11 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because I was doing a lot of business travelling where I wanted to avoid hold baggage. I therefore wanted something that would take the maximum amount of cabin baggage, not weigh too much, and be convenient. This case sort of does it, but to be honest the palaver of getting the shoulder straps out and putting them away again discourages me from ever doing it. Also I find the case has too many straps, which get in the way and look messy. It also does not have many compartments inside for keeping different types of clothes in. Also it does not have a compartment suitable for my laptop. It's not a bad case, but I don't think it's worth what I paid for it - not enough adavantages. I think I could have designed a better case given this brief.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great printer spoiled by bad software, 4 Dec. 2013
This is a good A3 printer and scanner with automatic duplexing. It prints well, and fast. It's great to have an A3 scanner. I have not been able to get it to print double sided A3 - it just prints single sided. It has two paper trays (one A3, one A4) able to hold around 150 sheets of paper each. It has _no_ manual paper feed, so if you want to print on some kind of special paper (e.g. photo paper) you have to remove one of the paper trays and put your special paper in there - not ideal. It does occasionally feed two sheets at once - which can be very annoying when you are manually printing double sided (which you have to do on A3 due to the above problem).

The worst feature though is the software, which I have been completely unable to use on two of my 3 computers. It works OK on my Vista PC, but it won't work on either of my Windows 7 PCs (one 32-bit, one 64-bit). I can't scan or print from these computers, which makes having a network printer completely pointless. I have not been able to get any effective help from Epson Support.

So in summary, a good printer spoiled by useless software.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does it have an earth pin?, 22 Mar. 2013
Does this adapter cater for Euro plugs that have an earth pin with a flat side, or only the type that has earth clips at the side? The photo stupidly does not show this detail. I can't tell whether this adapter will do what I need without this information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, 16 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This adapter did exactly what it said, arrived promptly, and was a good price. There are several different types of adapter that look like this - this is the right one to fit a headset with two 3-way 3.5mm jack plugs (one for headphones and the other for mic) into a Dell Latitude PC with a single 4-way combined phones and mic jack socket, but it would be easy to buy the wrong one - be careful!

1.0 out of 5 stars Sound quality awful, 6 July 2011
We've had one of these for several years. It hasn't failed, and the form factor is ideal for mounting under high level kitchen cupbaords, but the sound quality, both FM radio reception and CD is awful. I'm now looking for something else, possibly DAB or internet radio...
