4.0 out of 5 stars ideal morning engine - shame about the plastic lid, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is ideal for cooking a healthy breakfast for two without fiddling or using with much of utensils.
The egg gets boiled nicely, though you may have to adjust the water level to get used to cooking time based on how you like it. The steam holder can heat baked beans while egg is belng poached. So that means with toast you get atleast 2 different options.
If you are living in a hard water area like mines, you would have to to descale the heating steel tray every 2-3 days to keep it tidy and shining.
I would have easily given this 5 stars, had the transparent plastic lid supplied was finished a bit more. One can easily see the lid's steam-hole has been drilled very 'cheaply' at the factory where it is made. Apart from that no issues with the product so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Apple TV - better value than a 40 iphone Lightning to HDMI for connecting to your LCD TV, 12 Nov 2013
This review is from: Apple MD199B/A TV (Electronics)
Thankfully Apple this time has manufactured a product based on a common standard out there, i.e standard HDMI ports for connecting to a digital TV.
It's not a sarcasm, but I must say I am not a great fan of monopolositic type of companies aiming to differentiate themselves by offering premium products with non-standard features such as lightning cables and non-usb complaint devices. What more, simple interoperability with an iphone 5 and new ipad is not possible - it does not even work on the same cable!. Apple is one such company in my own view and opinion, but I know majority of apple fans will religiously disagree with me.

My purpose of buying Apple TV:
I was looking for a cable to attach my iphone to my LCD to view photos/videos, and was gobsmacked to find that apple sells it a at a huge cost of 40 ! In this day and age, an HDMI cable just cost 4 in the market and I do not simply understand how on earth a company can justify charging 10 times more the price!.

However, Apple TV is a product that does more than just connectivity, importantly *wireless*, which fits my purpose so. Since my Sony TV does not have a native Netflix app, I must say 75 is worth a long term investment than 40 for a HDMI lightning cable! Hence I have to give 4 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stars wont come off the chart easily , means they are not Reusable, 23 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bit disappointed with this item as per the product description, which I believe is misleading.
In the product description, they say "Laminated Making It Durable and Reusable", but actually you will have to scrub the previous stars off and give it a good wash to make it re-usuable.
Also - since the stars are glued permanently to the reward chart, you cannot re-use or take stars off in a typical bad-behaviour day.

4.0 out of 5 stars sturdy - but hold it steady !, 17 Jan 2012
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
You will be amazed, the moment you give this to a 3 year old it becomes a 'toy' though I must say it is decent 2MP camera with basic functions such as a digital zoom, flash, self-timer and of course the 180 degree rotary viewfinder which is quite unique !
Not just a toy, it can be used as a tool to educate kids on how to hold camera steady and still if they are interested in photography. My little one has slowly started to appreciate the difference after clicking almost a hundred 'junk' and shaky pictures.
few downside notes
- as for all the camera, the flash for this camera too is power hungry , After 20-30 pictures with flash, 4 AA batteries that came with it has ended up in the recycle bag.
- The flash comes up automatically after the power is turned on/off - or in otherwords, it doesn't remember the previous setting. I personally like my son to click pictures in natural light with flash turned off . He has a tendency to hold flash too close to his eyes - not a good thing in my view.
- The viewing angle is poor for the LCD display.

Apart from the above , it is still a great toy though a bit expensive - but I am sure every kid will have a gala time with and hopefully this is likely to be a 'long term' toy-investment for me and all the parents who bought it:-).

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality item - works perfectly !, 29 April 2011
It functions as a HDMI cable connecting two HDMI compatible devices, works perfectly. This is my second Amazon basics item, first one being 21-to-1 USB flash memory card reader and it has done a lot of hard work for me since I bought it 5-6 months ago, and is still going very smoothly. I whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone, don't be put off from buying becuase they appear cheap, they are 'smartly cheap' since they are produced to serve the mass market.

Few more words, it is an HDMI 1.4 spec cable, means it has ethernet channel capability enabled. There are only few manufacturers out there in the market with devices/equipments (for e.g LCD TV) that currently supports HDMI Ethernet Channel functionality. I could write a long essay, but put it simply, if your TV is internet enabled via USB/Wifi or using an Ethernet(RJ45) cable, most likely you will *not* be able to watch streaming videos from internet on TV using this cable, even via a PC. Please check with manufacturer for "HEC" (HDMI Ethernet Channel) label on the device's HDMI ports, which means, the same HDMI port is enabled to communicate as an ethernet port too. I hope this review is not too technical and helps someone to understand what it really means.

2.0 out of 5 stars Had to return - not doing pretty basic functions of a phone, 6 April 2011
I bought this phone finding over 80% of the reviews rating it 4 or more.
But unfortunately, I had to return the item becuase it is not doing pretty basic function that *any* phone would do.
1. When I pre-dial a number using phone keypad, I am either going to call that number or going to save the number into phonebook. Options to save the number is very important, and this phone doesn't provide that feature, even after dialing the number from the re-dial list.
2. Nightmode feature does not get activated and de-activated automatically - I find that feature provided totally useless.
3. Phone books needs manual 'syncing' between handsets (and yes, you will have to figure out how to do that!) everytime you add a new contact as entry, otherwise it will not appear in the other handset.
4. If you set answerphone with personal greeting - the phone takes it straight into answermode, it will not ring.

On a positive note, I found the sound quality better, but that doesn't make this phone good enough to me. Hence returning it.

4.0 out of 5 stars perfect fit, 16 July 2010
Had no problems fitting my 40inch LED to the wall using this. The product looks strong and sturdy with a built in mercury indicator for leveling. It comes with all the fitting and mounting bits, all you need is a good quality drill but you do need a second person to help you lift and align it to the mounting unit. Suggest getting a skilled professional help.
Would have given 5/5 had it come with a cable tidy mechanism at the back of the mounting unit - but asbolutely no complaints.
