Bosch PSR 14.4 LI-2 Cordless Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver (discontinued by manufacturer)
Bosch PSR 14.4 LI-2 Cordless Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver (discontinued by manufacturer)

5.0 out of 5 stars Power at Hand, 19 Feb 2012
Bought this a couple of years ago as my first experience of Lithium-Ion battery drill/drivers.

Nothing but praise for performance level and would throughly recommend especially as prices seem to have come down a bit. The illumination facility is extremely useful and the light weight of this model makes it very comfortable in the hand and in use in both drilling and driving modes.

With appropriate adaptor wing downs the legs on my touring caravan with great ease.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor performer, 19 Feb 2012
Struggled with this for 3 years with poor reception and transmission of DECT signal.

Fianlly gave up and bought a Panasonic package with twice the memory capacity and would not go back to Phillips.

Buy at your risk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silverline Circular Saw Blades, 19 Feb 2012
Looking for a replacement blade for my B&Q Performance Power 210MM Sliding Mitre Saw ( lots of teeth dropped out of original and B&Q only seemed to stock Bosch at £23+ for 1 blade) found these on ebay but eventually cheaper on Amazon at 3 blades for £14 delivered. Came within 2 days with usual super Amazon service.

As a casual DIY bod only using this saw 5/6 times a year just what I wanted. As yet only tried the 40T blade but found it extremely sharp and gave a good clean cut on both soft and hardwoods. Silverline web site says can be used on soft alloys ie aluminium but still to test this.

Looked a bargain on screen and does in the flesh. Would recommend and buy again.

4.0 out of 5 stars BT Freestyle 750 3 digital cordless handsets, 29 Nov 2010
Bought this as a refurb (unmarked when received and in original box) with 12 months guarantee for £42 delivered for my 89 yr old deaf father who likes the hearing aid compatible feature. Good hanset to handle and set up plus numbers transfer very easy.

Minus points are that you have to download full instruction book from internet (how many deaf 89 yr olds are on line!!) and the whole system would have been better if made of white plastic rather than "Titanium" so that the hanset could be spotted easily in poor light conditions and by the partially sighted.

Also, whilst on screen text is large, it is limited to 8 letters and one line so some names have to be shortened and, rarely, can you put in surnames as you can on many other systems. Don't know how BT get 12 letters on two lines on the phone in the illustration on the front cover of the full booklet.

System seems to have been designed for effect rather than practicality for the elderly but, even so, at the price I pais, not a bad deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic Perfection, 31 Jan 2009
Bought this on 26 Jan 2009 to replace an ageing 28" Sony as Sony do not make 37" to same spec.

Highly delighted, sound great and colour just about perfect - only gripe is some blocking in skin tone especially studio based ie news etc. Could be excessive make-up or studio lighting as outside broadcasts and films ok.

Linked to a Panasonic HDD DMR-EX768EBK and Optimum Vision TV900 makes a great package. Buy with confidence.

8 Feb 2009 update.
Now enjoyed this unit for a couple of weeks and still Very Very delighted. Originally set up in a small room and picture being viewed at close range was probably the cause of earlier comments on picture blocking as, after moving TV the intended position in lounge and now viewing from 10-15 feet, this is no longer a problem.

Only slight issue is that to work the remote it has to be pointed accurately at TV sensor but heck, who is complaining at this quality when I only paid £629 from an idependent retailer!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD HDD, 31 Jan 2009
What a great piece of kit linked up to my Panasonic TX-37LZD80 with HDMI cable. On screen menu's extremely easy to understand and operate and Viera link makes recording a doddle on either HDD or disc.

If you are interested, buy with confidence.
