Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Lens
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Lens
Price: £146.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Lens, Great Price, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This lens came recommended to me, because of its' f1.8 aperture. AF is quiet and quick, with the ability to manual focus even with AF engaged. Couldn't find it cheaper anywhere else, and even the super saver delivery was very quick.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 13 Nov. 2011
I think the overall quality is excellent - photos are vivid and crisp. My only criticism with print quality is with text documents on plain paper, where the black isn't as "deep" as I'm used to. Scans give a pretty accurate colour reproduction. I specifically wanted a wireless AIO, with "direct to CD" print capability

I've seen some reviews where the output tray is described as being "flimsy". Whilst this may be partly true (depending on your expectations), it does what it's meant to do, and unless you decided to put something heavy on it, can't see it being a problem. I've also seen comments regarding jamming issues, but I have experienced no problems at all with this. It may be because I use heavyweight 90gsm paper

Setting up the wireless connection isn't quite as straight forward as the Setup Guide would have you believe, but managed to get it done

But once again, the only real "fly in the Epson ointment" is their pricing policy on ink. A full set of genuine Epson cartridges is only a few pounds less than I paid for the printer! Epson ought to take a leaf out of Kodaks' book regarding ink cartridge pricing

So, an excellent AIO, let down by expensive consumables

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain, 19 Feb. 2011
Not much to say, as it does exactly what it's supposed to do. For a genuine Nokia charger, this has to be the bargain of the year. No fancy packaging, but who cares ?

Excellent

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money, 15 Nov. 2010
I bought one of these for my wife last christmas, to address her desire to have cosmetics in every upstairs room of the house.I got fed up of tubes of this, pots of that, in virtually every drawer, cupboard and shelf.

It's a testament to this product, that she not only gets most of her "stuff" into the case, but prefers it to her old mode of storage, as she can find things a lot easier. The cantilever design of the internal compartments, means "rummaging" is a thing of the past

It would appear to be well made, with quite a large capacity. However its size is also its only downfall, as I think its a little too large to take away on holidays, and therefore more suited to home use, or maybe a mobile beautician. Although it may JUST about be within a more generous hand luggage limit that some airlines allow. However, the size issue does not affect my rating, as if you need something smaller, BUY something smaller

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but with a few flaws, 15 Nov. 2010
I bought the Bosch to replace a Draper. I can't say I was that impressed with the presentation tin, as its design allowed all the contents to become dislodged in transit and rattle around.

The tool itself is pretty good, but could have been improved in the following areas :
1) The direction button is easy to knock, thereby enabling the spindle lock
2) The LED could be a lot brighter (not as good as the Draper)
3) You have to charge the screwdriver on its base unit. This is quite bulky, and as a field service engineer, space in my toolcase is a luxury I don't have - I would've preferred to see a charging jack and a plug.
4) The rubber cap where the accessories fit onto the tool is easy to lose

So far, it performs pretty well, with the angled adapter being especially useful. It seems to have quite a good usage on a full charge, and a reasonable level of torque.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money, 3 Jan. 2010
I bought this to replace a ni-cad powered screwdriver which no longer held it's charge. I use this on a daily basis in my job as a service engineer, and so far, it's performed faultlessly. I preferred the Draper to other models, as I like the dual function trigger (forward or reverse, without having to flick a switch). The small worklight is actually very effective too. On a full charge, it lasts several days (which in DIY terms should last for a few months). I would have given it 5 stars, except for the holster it came with, which is poorly made
