1.0 out of 5 stars Poor - not recommended., 31 May 2017
Very disappointing. Looks great, (we bought the kettle +toaster combo from Henrich Hardware) but after a couple of weeks it was all scaled up around the spout - obviously not a good seal. so water/steam was escaping there, evaporating and leaving a residue. Also something was to be heard rattling around in the bottom section of the kettle - we hadn't had it long enough for it to be limescale, and we always use filtered water anyway. Returned the kettle, and a replacement was sent out very promptly, but literally after one day, and only a handful of boils, the same is starting to happen (see pic). I can only put it down to poor design and poor build quality - not what you expect from a well known brand like Swan.
less than a week later, the second one developed the same rattle - this time I took the bottom off, to find a screw that was supposed to be holding the main element and wiring in place, that had come loose. Dangerous, considering this is where the mains wire is connected - could have caused a short circuit! Replaced the screw and tightened up the others, so at least that is one less potential problem avoided...

Stylish, just right for our kitchen, everything works fine, toaster is great, but rather disappointed to find that after only a few days use we started to get a build up of limescale around the outer rim of the kettle spout - we can only assume that it is not a good seal, and that water is getting through and evaporating leaving the scale. Doesn't affect the use, but looks unsightly and is a pain to clean off. And this despite the fact that we only use Brita filtered water in the kettle. Anybody else have the same problem, or do we just have a dud?

Does a great job, sturdy enough for the average DSLR or digicam, and light enough to carry around.

Great to see all the stuff that gets left out of the Woodstock films. The VCR footage is also unique, and interesting.

Great little case for the price, looks pretty funky and fits my Les Paul like a glove. Ordered one morning and the case arrived first thing the very next day, so great service as well.

Meideal Capo12 Classical Guitar Quick Change Trigger Capo Key Clamp Coffee

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT SUITABLE FOR CLASSICAL GUITAR!, 1 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
NOT SUITABLE FOR CLASSICAL GUITAR! The bar on the capo is 50mm, my standard full-size classical guitar neck at the 3rd fret for example is more like 55mm - this capo will only cover 5 of the strings! This is the second failed attempt I have had on Amazon to try to find a capo for my classical guitar. The first, Jim Dunlop (you would think that would be a reliable brand) was also too small, and very poorly made. Next stop - music shop, where I can see exactly what I'm getting before I buy it!

Great little MP3 player, still working perfectly, had it for about five years now. Bet you can't say that for your old iPod...
