1.0 out of 5 stars does not work on wii or pc, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This picked up the xbox no problem but did not detect either my wii or my pc. I later learned that lots of hdmi gizmos require the hdmi switch to be powered. I bought a powered one from another supplier which only cost £9.99 and hey presto everything worked. The seller should provide a list of often used product that it supports.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just wanted to add my two pennies worth, 8 Jan 2014
I actually bought my H180X projector from elsewhere but the price here is the same and i thought i would add a little laymans review as you can get so bogged down in the techie reviews.
I bought this to screen on an 84" 16:9 projector screen in a converted garage now cinema room, although i used it on a white wall and only notice a minimal improvement from the screen it does add to the cinema experience.
The sole use is to play xbox 360 and watch Netflix movies through xbox 360.
The xbox 360 seemingly only displays in 720p so I thought that there was little point in spending significantly more on a 1080p model. I thought that it would be pixely at 720p, I was wrong.
To this lay person the projector is awesome.
I plugged my 20 year old Denon amp with 4 speakers coming off it (1 each corner) into the xbox and an HDMI lead into the projector. 1 hdmi input -so what. I bought a remote 3 way splitter for £7 from Amazon and switch between x.box, PC and Wii.
I bought a screen for £100.
I now have a home cinema/ gaming room that cost less than £500! The picture is so much better than i could have expected. I personally have seen none of the rainbow effect that is talked about on DLP projectors.
In summary the projector is quiet, fantastic picture and really easy to set up -plug and play. The one thing that i did not reckon on is the heat that these things kick out but that's not this projector specifically just all projectors.

1.0 out of 5 stars good read.....if you can read it, 13 April 2013

This was a freebie so I can't complain really. The annoying thin is that it is a good read which unfortunately cannot be read. I have never seen so many typos since i tried Google translate. It's a shame. I would pay for this book if it didn't have the typos.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy with item, 12 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Following 2 seperate faults with another big button Binatone flip phone i bought this phone for my mum specifically because it has a panic button and had good reviews.
It is basic with some pretty awful ringtones but it has an easy to read screen, the buttons are easy to see and the cradle is a real bonus because it makes it simpler for my mum to grab and drop back into for recharge which means she is more likely to have it charged in an emergency.
I would recommend this phone for anyone that wants an easy to read and operate phone with an emergency button.

4.0 out of 5 stars definitely worth a read, 9 Oct 2012

This was a compeling read. There is so much more to Adam Ant's story than a 15 minute flash in the pan rags to riches to rags saga.
I was drawn in and captivated by his roller coaster ride and finished the book with a feelings of compassion, sadness and an understanding of how we ended up reading those headlines a few years ago.
Congratulations to Adam for having the courage to bear his soul.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sending back the second phone, 17 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This phone was everything that I was looking for in a Big Button phone for my mum. Having suffered a mini-stroke and having poor eyesight I wanted a phone with big buttons & display, a panic button and in a clam shell. Although not awesome quality it looked fine and my mum loved it....until it stopped working. Amazon were great and replaced it immediately; no quibbles. 2 months later the replacement phone just stopped working. Again Amazon are about to replace it no quibbles. I would love another if I could guarantee it worked but I can't.
