5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Product, 22 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good solid product, not overly heavy and very easy to fit.
If you are wanting a more upright position either for better visibility or comfort then this does the job well and can be easily moved up and down till you find the height that suits you best.
A small adjustment can make a huge difference if you are suffering pain or discomfort in your neck, back or hands.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful printer, 9 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the worst printer I've ever had, I've used it for just over 12 months, It's noisy, has a mind of it's own and has an appalling thirst for ink as it needs a cleaning cycle pretty much every time it's used, even within 24 hours.
I have just fitted yet another set of ink cartridges (Genuine HP) and it now prints colours as a streaky mess even after two cleaning cycles. The cartridges now show half full!.
The first couple of months it seemed OK but now destined for the bin.
This should not have been on the market at all, now I'll never ever buy anything HP produce.


Panasonic RP-HS46E-K Slim Clip on Earphone - Black
Panasonic RP-HS46E-K Slim Clip on Earphone - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Fit well and good value, 27 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my second pair. (in between I bought a pair of Philips SHS4700/10 Mid range EarClip Headphones, which were very bulky, would not stay flat against my ears and the slightest movement made them fall off - now in the bin!). These Panasonic are slim and easy to fit flat against my ears, reasonably comfortable and wearable in bed which is a must for us tinnitus suffers. Decent sound and fairly tough as my first pair are still OK after a few months of falling asleep whilst wearing in bed which inevitably results in waking up with a tangle of twisted and stretched wires.
I reckon I'll get through a couple of pairs per year, less if I am lucky. They would probably last most folk several years with normal use.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible!, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these Philips SHS4700/10 Mid range EarClip Headphones to replace a pair of Panasonic RP-HS46E-K Slim Clip on Earphones as the Panasonic where not listed as in stock.
Maybe it's just me but they don't fit at all though the Panasonic fitted perfectly. They will not stay in place and are very bulky, thus hang off my ears at an angle unless pressed against my ears.
If you have used the Panasonic and been pleased with them be very wary of buying these!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality and fits VW Golf, 27 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This fits my 2011 VW golf MK 6. Height is perfect length is a little longer than necessary but easily and neatly tucks in between A pillar and edge of door. Nicely edged with black fabric, has "ears" which would be needed to tuck in on a wider car and a ribbon each side with hook which could be used to attach the cover to something convenient. Well worth the cost.
Edited to say it works well and keeps windscreen frost free. I found it best to cut the "ears" off making it much more manageable to fit to my particular car.

5.0 out of 5 stars Carbon Brushes, Bosch part number 154740, 30 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These brushes seem very well made and superb fast delivery from ASUDS even over the Christmas period.
I've now fitted them and they work perfectly.
The Bosch original brushes were completely worn down after only lasting just over 3 years so probably not worth replacing with original parts which seem to cost over 30-00.
Fitting was a bit fiddly and the F21 flashing fault code had to be cleared after fitting but having done it once it would be easy next time.

There are several videos on line which may be helpful,
this is what worked for me:

Remove belt by turning large pulley and sliding belt off.
Remove wires to motor then the motor (remove two bolts then it slides off).
I found it easier to remove the motor as it's awkward to fit new brushes in situ (I tried!).
Remove spade terminals then old brushes.
Fit new brushes making sure the angled end is facing the correct way.
Re-assemble in reverse order.
To clear codes after new bushes fitted and get rid of error F21 message.
Power on.
Water must be on.
Turn the knob to off.
Close the door.
Turn the knob to 6 o'clock position.
Wait 2 seconds.
The start/pause should begin flashing, if not just carry on.
Press and hold the spin button.
Turn the knob to 7 o'clock position.
Wait 2 seconds.
Release the button.
Turn the knob to off.
I had to repeat this sequence several times to clear the F21 fault code, maybe I got the timing slightly out, worked about the 4th or 5th time.

I suggest you wear gloves as insides of washers can be very sharp.
A superb product and a great saving over Bosch prices for originals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ixos XMM125 2 Way 3.5mm Jack Audio Adaptor, 16 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems to be of high quality and well made, rubberised and with a good thick 60mm cable.
Quite a bulky adapter and feels like it would outlast whatever it's plugged into.
Sockets fit well, good sound and no crackling or movement in use.

5.0 out of 5 stars M235 works perfectly with Linux and windows ME, 25 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I dual boot with Linux Mint/Windows XP on a Presario 2100 laptop and Linux Ubuntu/Windows ME on an old Evesham desktop.
The M235 works perfectly with all four operating systems, including the scroll wheel click.
I simply plugged in to a USB socket, switched on the computer and it worked immediately.
The M235 feels well made, the scroll wheel is silent whilst still feeling the notches nicely
and with smart sleep the AA (notAAA) battery should last well.
Be wary of the photo as at this time it's not of an M235 mouse though very similar, best to check on Logitech site.
(Edit to say battery lasted just short of 5 months, green light at start up changes to red to warn of low battery.
Normal home use, I never switched the mouse off manually as it goes to sleep when the computer is switched off.
Still think it's a great mouse and recently bought a second one for desktop computer.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb sound quality and easy to use!, 19 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought and fitted this today to my 1998 BMW Z3 to replace an ageing Sony unit and I'm extremely pleased with the sound quality, the build quality and the ease of use.
Simple to fit after purchasing an ISO wiring harness for just less than 4-00 to connect up, the existing aerial plug fitted correctly.
Normal CD's and mp3 are playable and the sound quality is great.
Radio stations are simple to save manually or auto save and along with CD tracks are easy to select by pressing the menu button, rotating the large easy to turn silver knob to select the required track or station then a press to confirm, or simply by using the forward and back button to skip one track/station per push.
So much easier to use than tiny and illegible buttons as fitted to many similar units!
The removable front panel (with option to make none removable) is very stylish and uncluttered and looks good in my car, it's red illumination is a very good match for BMW red glow dials.
The front Aux socket works perfectly with my Sansa Clip mp3 player, if you aren't going to use it (or AM radio) you can set the unit not to show Aux and/or AM radio in the source menu to save scrolling past them when swapping between CD and FM radio .
I found the illumination on default to be a bit bright for my taste but just perfect when dimmed using one of the many useful menu items.
If properly installed and set up correctly using the supplied and simple to understand user manual it's a joy to use.
You can download the user manual from the JVC website before you purchase to check out all the options.
I think you would have to pay an awful lot more to improve on this head unit.
