1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS STEAMER !, 8 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hello
I bought this steamer in Nov 2011. We used it 3 times. After the 3rd use we could not get the lid off (a common problem). The warranty (1 year at the time of purchase) had run out so we brought it to a Karcher independent agent recommended by Karcher. He could not get the lid off either and he said he had one in the week before with the exact same problem. They tried everything. Anyway, it's £75 to replace the entire unit ! What a waste of money this was. It was good when it worked, but it only worked 3 times. We have tried all of the things everyone mentions on google to get the lid off, no joy. Off to the dump with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Humax FOXSAT-HDR 1TB bought Dec 2012, 16 Jan 2013
I am constantly getting the following error when switching the Humax box on "Internal HDD not available. Please check your HDD". Thing is I can't check it because it isn't showing up in the menu. I have emailed Humax, so far no reply. It's been a week.

I have called Humax regarding this issue and I have to send the box back under warranty exchange. Phone them as email correspondence is very bad. It takes them over a week to reply to an email.

No matter what anyone says, these boxes are NOT as intuitive as a sky box and there are lots of issues eg. delete is slow, recording does not start/stop on time etc. Worth the pain to save the money though - I hope.

I am now waiting for my new box to arrive. Hopefully this one will work.

I have had to call Humax on an expensive 0844 number to get some sort of acknowledgement that they have received my warranty exchange form. They answer the phone, but don't pay much attention to what you say to them. They said they would acknowledge the email I sent. I'm still waiting for them to do that. Really, really bad customer support. I hope nothing goes wrong with yours. Mind you it's like most things bought online these days ie. really bad aftersales customer support if you need them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good solid shelf, 8 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first one arrived but some important screws were missing. Instead of sending out the screws I had to send back the whole thing ..

Anyway, excellent shelf, looks good. I needed to use much larger screws than the ones provided for screwing to the wall.

2.0 out of 5 stars good fit, but has holes, 12 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to fit my mad dash 12ft trampoline. It fitted well, it's a tight fit, but a good fit. When I had finished tying everything down, I noticed that there were 3 holes (each about the size of a matchbox) in the net.
Rather than send it back and complain etc., I will attempt to sew them up.
For this reason, I gave the product 2 stars (and no, I did not rip it when putting it up).

4.0 out of 5 stars not impressed either, 23 April 2012
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: ORIGINAL ROYAL QUOITS (Misc.)
I bought this last Friday. When I went to screw in the uprights I had trouble with all of them. I had to press them down really hard to try and get them to catch the thread and one of them wouldn't catch at all. I'm sending it back. Also, like one of the other reviewers,it was smaller than I thought it would be. Jacques customer service was good though and we have had other games from them which is top quality. I would suggest the least they could is check if the product fits together before sending it out.

1.0 out of 5 stars don't buy, 11 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought 2 of these.

For the first one : I plugged in the mp3 player and when I click on the H drive (where the mp3 player appears to be attached to) it says "Please insert a disk into removable disk H"

That was it, totally unuseable.

The second one, I plugged it into the laptop and put music on it and listened to the music, but as soon as I unplugged it from the laptop, there was no charge. I charged it all night, but it still did not work in the morning.

It was the kids Xmas presents. I'm going to buy an ipod shuffle instead. My Mrs has one of these and it has been working no probs for years. Save yourself the hassle and don't buy a SWEEX 'cos they ain't SWEET

1.0 out of 5 stars DAB did not work and very tinny sounds, 30 Oct 2011
Hello
I bought one of these last Wednesday, it arrived on Thursday the following week. I took it out of the box and first impression was very cheaply made. I put it together and tried to tune in the DAB radio. It couldn't pick any stations up. FM was ok. Then I put a record on. Wooooaaaaa, really bad sound. Very, very tinny. That was enough for me. I put it back in the box and sent it back.
Cheers
Dave

2.0 out of 5 stars HP CN245B Photosmart Wireless - very average, 20 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace my lexmark all in one printer which stopped working after a year (just after the guarantee was up). I would not recommend anyone to buy this printer. It does not work very well via the wireless setup. It's very hit and miss whether your prints will come out or not. My Cyan catridge has run out all ready and I've only had it a week and I have printed less than 20 A4 plain paper images. Scans are good. The printer does not print from laptop to printer unless broadband wireless router is switched on.
