Dyson Digital Slim DC35 Multi Floor Lightweight Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
Dyson Digital Slim DC35 Multi Floor Lightweight Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
Offered by Deals4u Limited
Price: 217.00

2.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable after a year with 3 different faults., 13 July 2014
Nice design but has proved to be unreliable and poorly made. The joint between the main unit and the extension tube soon became loose and now flops around. Worse still after about 14 months the unit keeps cutting out and you have to keep re squeezing the button the keep it going. Thought this was a battery issue so spent 40 on replacement but it was the same with that one on proving it is an internal wiring or power supply fault. Also the connection for the battery charger lead through the wall holder became faulty and has to be manually pushed down every time you put the hoover back to get it to light up and start charging again.
I loved this when I first got it but the reliability of this product is quite shocking.

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD SOLID PRODUCT, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought two of these for 13.50 each on deal of the day and put them up around the front of my house. Nice bright spot and very sensitive IR sensor. Will need to see how long batteries last but easy to fix and adjust. However quite easy to undo and steal so bear in mind when thinking of where to place.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks nice but loud humming noise heard when on flame only, 6 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Opening up the box this fire looked nice. Well made and heavy. Plugged it in and turned on to just the flame light setting which also looked very nice. However you could instantly hear a loud humming or droaning noise coming from the back of the unit. When you then put the heat on the fan noise was also very loud, far louder than you would expect. It is a fan heater of course so you have to accept some noise but this must be a very small fan fitted which has been wound up to its max to get the heat out. You certainly couldn't live with it being on in the background and it was very distracting.
Returned to Amazon for a refund.
Shame but Dimplex need to sort this humming fault which ruins what could be a nice little fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, Chandler, you've done it again!, 15 Oct 2012
This review is from: See Right Through You (Audio CD)
This is the 7th studio album from Southampton modern progressive rockers Jadis and one that the main man Gary Chandler has been working on for some considerable time now. Whilst unmistakable in it's distinctive style, the content has shifted towards something a little bit different. It's certainly not heavy, but then I suppose they never have been, but these 8 tracks demonstrate all that is good about this band. Clever, thoughtful and very musical. No filler tracks here. They have sometimes been viewed by prog purists as somewhere middle of the prog highway, but even if true, this is no bad thing if it distinguishes these boys from those who continue to churn out the same old goblins, jesters and mythical nonsense. This album is very good indeed. It ticks all the boxes, fabulous guitar, nice vocals, melody with all the requisite progressive elements thrown in. It needs a few spins like any album that will stay with you for the long term, but if in any doubt at all just play the last title track which is nothing less than a pure master class in writing classical guitar rock. It really is about time that this band get the long overdue recognition that they deserve.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks good but broke very quickly, 19 Aug 2012

This review is from: Thumbsup Roller Wheel (Toy)
Out of the box this item looks good, well made and feels quite strong when inflated. Unfortunately with little use the internal braces started to come unattached which then meant the roller lost its shape. Perhaps I was unlucky and would certainly recommend only small kids use this product. The kids had great fun with it before it broke so a real shame. Thankfully purchased from Amazon so return was easy for a refund.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but very noisey, 16 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works OK if you leave it on for 30 minutes to get nice and hot but it then starts to tick and creak continuously, but it is compact lightweight and a good price. You get what you pay for.

1.0 out of 5 stars LID DID NOT FIT PROPERLY, 16 Feb 2012
It looked lovely out of the box other than the fact that I thought I was ordering a white one as suggested in the photo but it is nothing like white in fact a dull cream colour. That aside I thought it was a match made in heaven until I realised that the lid sat loosely and unevenly on the base meaning it would have leaked steam and dried out the food.
It went straight back to Amazon.

3.0 out of 5 stars GOOD KIT BUT WITH SERIOUS FAULTS - HAD TO REPLACE, 21 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like many other people reviewing here I like this unit. Easy to use, good picture quality and has a quality feel about it. However there are a couple of issues that I have with it.
Fisrtly, it keeps turning itself off for no reason whilst watching the TV tuner facility e.g. not while recording, just using the tuner rather than your TV tuner on AV1 or HDMI. It's random and appears to have a mind of its own. Having google'd that it appears that many other people are having the same problem with this model and similar HUMAX boxes. I have just ordered another and this one is going back thanks to Amazon's excellent return service. One reviewer is on his third box for this fault!
Secondly the volume level is so low compared to the TV and Blu-ray that you need to have it turned up almost full to hear it. Forget to turn it back when you switch back to TV and you know about it. Again a known issue with these units. Come on HUMAX for heaven's sake sort these things out. It would be near perfect without these issues.
