Nicely made with a sturdy construction of stainless steel (no rust). Two problems, if you overload it the food can touch the carbon filter. Second problem is my wife always leaves it to me to empty it ;-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice machine, but check it before use., 22 Mar. 2016
Reasonably good value for money and sturdily constructed. It seems to cut accurately.Delivery was prompt, to the roadside on a pallet. You'll be shifting 80 Kg so have a trolley and an assistant to move it.

The particular machine I bought was a bit of a lemon in that the lower access door was seized solid with rust on one hinge. Additionally the drive belt broke within a few hours operation, probably due to the fact the drive shaft pulley locking screw had not been tightened and the pulley was drifting on the shaft. Presumably in the depths of a factory somewhere in the world an assembly worker was thinking of his new girlfriend, but his mind was not on the job. Both faults were annoying, but minor and easily fixed. To give Charnwood their due, they are responding promptly and helpfully. I'm sure they'll be tightening their quality control in future.

1.0 out of 5 stars Aluminium only., 26 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When purchasing I missed the "Aluminium cans" reference. This should be in the title of the product offering. It is not strong construction.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good mobile phone, 1 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good well constructed 2G/3G mobile phone without the fuss of touch screens and Apps. Plenty of features if your hearing isn't good or your eye sight is poor, though that is not why I chose it.

The bluetooth interface works ok, but appears to lack a couple of features such as smooth transfer of phonebook details to my car's bluetooth system.

2.0 out of 5 stars Clone of Nokia - BL-5C, 13 July 2011
Shown on the order as Nokia BL-5C; but when the package arrived it turned out to be a clone battery labelled CYT BL-5C with no hologram but the battery packaging is clearly designed to imitate the Nokia packaging.
I've been using one of the betteries for a week now, I've just fully recharged it for the third time and that is just standby mode for the phone with no calls.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful book, but needs more, 23 Mar. 2011
An ok introductory book, but I'm left with the feeling I'd need more information before starting to program in JavaScript. I was a bit disappointed with the Ajax section, it was quite short.
Worth a buy in conjunction with other books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Booker Award warning, 8 Nov. 2009
This review is from: The Underground Man (Paperback)
I should have been alerted by the "Shortlisted for the Booker Award" warning on the front cover of The Underground Man. I found the book frightfully boring. Turning the page to read the next was an exercise of extreme will power and self control. Not wishing to inflict it on people browsing in Charity Shops I shall arrange for the safe disposal of this noxious item.

1.0 out of 5 stars A great device but ...., 19 Sept. 2009
I bought one of these devices. It travels around the world with me and my laptop computer (XP). Sadly it does not work with Microsoft Vista. Polycom have promised to deliver an updated software driver, but have gone years past their projected date.

I don't know if they are going to fix this in Windows 7, but presently my advices is nice device but don't buy.
