1.0 out of 5 stars 2 hours cleaning before breaking., 14 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Vax arrived quickly and was easy to assemble. The instructions could be a bit clearer but I got the machine working OK. It cleaned the carpets well, removing the stains and ingrained dirt superbly. I used it to clean the living room, 2 bedrooms and a study carpet. All came up lovely. The carpets were left very dry and totally dried within 12 hours. All in all a very good job. That was just the main parts of the room as I didn't have time to move the furniture and wanted to see how it performed. I also used the upholstery tools to clean the front seats of my car. Not as effective as the main cleaner at leaving the seats dry but the seats were cleaned well.

Then I went to use it again today to do a more through job on the carpets. I had used it for less than 5 minutes when the motor cut out. It was still powered as you could hear the pump going. It just wouldn't suck the water back up. Ringing Vax Customer service and they said return the machine as it was faulty.

So less than 2 hours of cleaning and I am asking for a refund.....cheaper than hiring a machine for the job but don't need the hassle.

Very good at raking out thatch from the lawn. Certainly made the job easy. Only down side is the collection basket could do with being bigger as it fills very quickly. Other than that no complaints and does the job well.

Good but the heat of the fire soon makes the metal malleable and doesn't hold the paper tight after a few uses. But a good way to save wood and use up all papers.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great hose and expands to full length with the water through it. However, as soon as you turn the hose sprayer on, the hose contracts and you are pulling it back all the time. Not suitable for sprinklers or when you want to leave the hose to fill something more than the un-expanded length. For those jobs, you need a standard hose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent travel tripod, 6 Jun. 2015

Excellent travel tripod. Best used on low height as can vibrate a litte at higher settings but overall as a travel tripod it does the job well. Folds down very small and fits easily in my rucsac camera bag.

3.0 out of 5 stars Direct sun only, 6 Jun. 2015
Disappointed as it will only work in DIRECT sunshine. Any shade or cloud and it stops.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 17 Jun. 2013
Gave up after the first 100 pages. There are too many inconsistencies to make it anything other fiction. Being generous, this maybe down to the memories of an old man not being that accurate but as it this was originally not for publication then that maybe over generous.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spyder 4Express, 22 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this product as I am doing a photographic course and wanted to make sure the on screen photo colours were accurate.

The software was very easy to install and use. The calibration process is very simple but I am very disappointed by the results.

Each time I have calibrated the monitor, I have had to run it 3 or 4 times in the same light conditions before I get a profile that is somewhere acceptable. Overall the profiles are dark with low contrast and colours are much darker than I expected.

I eventually worked out that although I have a flat screen LED monitor, I have to calibrate as if it were a CRT monitor to get good results.

Good results, easy to install and use
