Severin Universal Food Slicer In Black/Silver
Severin Universal Food Slicer In Black/Silver
Offered by TECHNIK TRADE UK

5.0 out of 5 stars ... at several alternatives but many complained about them for poor design, performance & inadequate power, 20 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I looked at several alternatives but many complained about them for poor design, performance & inadequate power.. But this one got very good reports, particularly from home bread bakers. They were full of praise for the power and general mechanical set-up.
I have now used mine for slicing brown sandwich loaves cleanly and evenly. Very few crumbs which are very easy to clean up. The motor power and gearing combine to be effortless. It is a bit more expensive but nothing like the professional varieties available. A thoroughly good buy!

1.0 out of 5 stars What happened to the AC version?, 18 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The original supply unit was merely a transformer giving 9V.1Amp. The router has a bridge rectifier and appropriate supply smoothing circuits. On test the DC unit did work after a fashion but several supplies within the router were low. Since in use the router is susceptible to electrical noise, the use of a switch-mode supply is to be avoided. BT210s get very warm because the ventilation is inadequate, and the reason why we have gone to alternatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pottter Classic, 9 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent value purchase. Construction and detailing beautifully carried out. Arrived very well packed and on time. Peter now arrived in South Africa unscathed and to the delight of the recipient who surely will cherish him for many years. It is a pity that we do not seem to make things like this in UK.

Despite manufacture in China, the bear was well packed, accessories beautifully made and fitted, delivery exactly as promised. What a pity we cannot compete within UK!

2.0 out of 5 stars Nuvi 2440 Pouch, 3 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Recommended by Amazon for this GPS, it is a bit small for this model but just about adequate. The widescreen makes it poke out somewhat and there is not enough slack to take the connecting adapter which will need to be left on the ball of the window sucker. Well made and excellent delivery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting lost is a dying art!, 27 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having had a complex woman under the bonnet built-in my previous car, where setting-up could be a nightmare, it was a relief to find that Garmin seems to have got it right this time. The big screen is a major attribute when you do not want to go walkies as well! It is clear and fairly intuitive. The adjustments and settings seem to be satisfactory in practice. The manual is over-vast, since it covers several related models, it was not available in English when I bought the device but is on the website now.


Ubuntu Linux Toolbox: 1000+ Commands for Ubuntu and Debian Power Users
Ubuntu Linux Toolbox: 1000+ Commands for Ubuntu and Debian Power Users
by Christopher Negus
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for those who prefer to sort out their own problems., 27 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Many existing books skirt round the subject of using the command line and give the opinion that it is is beyond the average reader new to Ubuntu/Linux. Once the principles are grasped and a few steps taken after reading this one, it is not that bad! While "Linux in a Nutshell" is a very detailed and comprehensive document, this volume bridges the gap between the basic literature and and the expert titles very neatly. Linux, without the dreaded blue screens of death found in some other OSs, is a much more comfortable environment when you discover the way out of the occasional glitch.

5.0 out of 5 stars IDE expansion at last!, 3 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Controller much praised by users. Used to be fairly widely available but now getting thin on the ground thanks to later drive models. Some of us have to plod on with elderly kit, my old Dell OptoPlex GX110 only had one tiny HD which left little room for Win XP and not a lot of apps after the obligatory antivirus etc., Now I can have a couple of 160 GB HDs with room to spare...lovely!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap HDD, 22 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Hard drive arrived very well packed. It turned out to be a Seagate DB35.2 160 GB IDE/100 with 2MB cache. The computer recognised it and only time will tell if its performance is OK. I have every hope that it will. Price is reasonable although such a drive (possibly not new) is cheaper on eBay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Belkin quality hub, 22 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Belkin are renowned for providing quality products. There is evidence of this in this hub which worked straight out of the box. The blue lighting is pretty but does not give any indication of the operation of the ports which is a shame.
