1.0 out of 5 stars Returned for refund, 6 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was impossible to initialise as the machine refused to recognise the presence of the print head. I wanted to use it as a scanner initially but it would not let me get that far. Apparently a common problem with this model but no easy way to rectify. Returned for refund but two days wasted waiting for a courier not to turn up and another day wasted trying to get the thing to work. Bought a Kodak, which worked straight out of the box and apparently is cheaper to run!


Yale PBS1 British Standard Auto Deadlocking Rim Nightlatch 60mm
Yale PBS1 British Standard Auto Deadlocking Rim Nightlatch 60mm

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic lock, 15 Sep 2011
I fitted one of these to our front door 25years ago. Much admired by the local bobby, checking security arrangements (those were the days) and by our insurance company's chap, checking security arrangements. Deadlocks automatically and has a very substantial striker plate, screwed deep into the frame. It's just fallen apart after a quarter of a century. Shall be replacing like for like.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bargain before it is withdrawn, 2 May 2011
This camera is now down to almost half price to clear following the introduction of the HS 20. if you read the other reviews you will discover that it is not perfect but if you prefer manual zoom over mechanical zoom (as DSLR owners well might) this represents very good value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as described - Plastic, not leather, 18 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case is described, misleadingly, as "hard leather" it doesn't smell like leather and it doesn't look like leather, the "grain" is embossed. Contacting the vendor, they say it is "PU Leather, ok." PU is polyurethane, a kind of plastic, frequently printed or patterned to imitate leather. This is "artificial leather". The same plastic case can be bought on a major Internet auction site, accurately described as being made of "artificial leather" for less than half the price it is also available in brown plastic.2 Parts Hard Leather Case with Tripod Fixing for Nikon P7000 Camera(Brown)

2.0 out of 5 stars How can a single sheet be "Loose Leaf", 18 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an expensive laminated sheet of paper with pictures of Marine mammals on both sides. You get the name of each and, well, that's it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a Nikon Battery, 18 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A carefully written description, which refers to the product as a "Replacement Battery - Nikon EN-EL14", giving the impression that this is a Nikon product. It is not. It is made by CameronSino technology. Now, it is very much cheaper than the Nikon equivalent, which is a clue. It has a 1 Year Warrantee, time will tell.

The addition of the word "for" between "Battery" and "Nikon" would have made this an honest description. As it stands it gives the impression of seeking to mislead. I have no idea how well it will perform but expect inferior performance from something sold on the basis of a misleading description.

The accompanying photo is subtly out of focus (from a photographic company) so that you cannot read what it says on the battery itself. The price is the clue to what you are getting

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough chew toy., 7 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This provides long-lasting entertainment for a medium to large dog, alone or with "stuff" in its cracks and crevices. Put meat paste, small treats that you can wedge in very firmly into the holes and crevices and the dog will spend hours trying to get them out. Very robust and seems indestructible by a large Springer Spaniel. Would buy again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cuts little figure, 7 Feb 2011
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like all sylvanian families a cutesey anthropomorphic animal, in this case a doctor on his bicycle. A good mascot for any doctor, especially dealing with children. Serious play would have it "in bulk" in about ten minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says and that's all, 7 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Prompt delivery despite poor weather and Christmas rush. When put together it wriggles in bright sunlight, which is in short supply in the depths of Winter in England. Therefore, after construction (simple) its entertainment value is limited.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great little camera, but buy elsewhere, 2 Jan 2011
Great compact camera in all respects except time to write ti RAW. However, a firmware upgrade is about to fix this. Expansys's price through Amazon is about 15% more than if you buy it from Expansys direct (Amazon's commission). However, the price direct is too good to be true and if something appears too good to be true....there are questions about their country of trading, adherence to distance selling regulations, grey or White status of goods sold.
