3.0 out of 5 stars Controller faulty, 1 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great as expected but one of the buttons on the supplied controller has been temperamental from day one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad handle good suction, 1 Jan. 2017
Suction great but maybe just a problem I've had as haven't seen it in other reviews but the height adjustment on the handle is a real pain... It doesn't lock in place... When having it high and pushing it the handle drops to the lowest height and when pulling it the handle shoots back up.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor connections, 23 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really good apart from the socket qualities were poor. The micro USB plug must be slightly oversize as it struggled to be pushed into a number of devices. Also the micro USB port on IBRA adaptor gave a temperamental connection with multiple leads tried. This means that charge will not always be going to the connected device so you're risking a dead battery. Whenever connection is lost or restored a bleep noise is emitted which is very annoying when it is happening regularly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but HDMI to USB length too short, 23 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works great where alternatives have failed for me. The only reservation I have is that the maximum distance between the HDMI plug and the USB plug which has to be plugged into an adaptor is only approximately 50cm. In my case, this means when I plug the HDMI plug into the TV, I have to piggyback an extention socket off my main one on the floor next to the TV and sit it on top of the TV unit being the TV just so the lead can reach.

After writing the above I realised that the USB can be plugged into a powered USB port on the television if one us available hence meaning the short length is no longer a problem. Still just short of 5 stars as connection to phone can be temperamental and phone battery goes down quicker than the charge received via the USB

1.0 out of 5 stars Annoying random bleeps, 23 Mar. 2016
2 of the 4 receivers started bleeping randomly only weeks after buying. Would have returned but the return policy didn't allow me to do this for any reason only 4 weeks after received. Thought at first it may be something to do with interfering frequencies but it has happened in numerous places both in the home, at work, in the car, and whilst out walking. I may just be unlucky with the set I received but thought I should share my experienxe

2.0 out of 5 stars Not genuine Dyson product, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
2 belts supplied loose in an envelope. No identification markings on the belts at all as was expected from the image shown for the item. Cannot yet comment on the quality or durability of the non-OEM items.

3.0 out of 5 stars Read the details, 31 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unless you read the product description carefully you may not be aware of the following which I'd like to bring to your attention:

- This TV does not have integrated WIFI. To access the features which require an internet connection you need to use a wired connection (i.e. ethernet cable between router and TV), or purchase a Sony UWABR100 USB Network Adapter which costs around £50.

- With the internet connection sorted you're ready to go, unless you want to make Skype video calls. All you need to do for this though is connect a webcam.... as long as it is Sony's own.... a Sony CMUBR100 Skype Camera for Bravia TV costing around £90.

If you're looking for a suitable wall bracket for this TV, I purchased a "Designer Habitat / Swivel And Tilt TV Wall Mount Bracket For 17 Inch / 37 Inch LED / LCD Plasma TV's" from Play. Does the job ok for only £10.99 but you'll need to buy longer screws than those supplied to fix the bracket to the TV. I also noted that the raw plugs supplied were too big for the masonry screws supplied!

Some of the sister models do come with integrated WIFI capability and LED Edge technology which this model doesn't have, but on the other hand, this TV is full HD and shows freeview HD channels whereas some of the other models don't.

A good feature is that you can attach a portable USB hard disk drive to the TV and use it to record and playback your favourite TV programs, avoiding the need for a costly separate recorder. Once formatted by the TV, the drive can only be used on that TV unless you re-format it for use on other media such as a PC.

Currently, the TV can access BBC iPlayer and 5 On Demand but not 4OD and ITV Player.

If you plan to use the TV for internet browsing then remember that there is no keyboard and all typing needs to be done slowly and frustratingly via the remote. Displayable content is also limited as integrated videos cannot be displayed and some web pages use too much memory to display at all.

Overall, this TV is still good value for money but without a little research upfront could leave you feeling slightly let down when it doesn't do everything you expected and you need to spend more money to get it there. Best advice from me would be that this is a good value range of TV's from Sony but be sure to figure which is the best specific model for you before you open your wallet. I would have given it 4 or 5 stars if it wasn't for feeling slightly misled by it being shown to have Skype, and that the accessories to add WIFI capability and a webcam are restricted to somewhat overpriced Sony products.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been alot better!, 5 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Upstarts - Bullseye DVD (Toy)
It seems as though too little effort has gone into the creation of this game. It takes an age to get from one go to the next because of all the loading and constant score updates. The dart aiming (using the enter key on the DVD remote) is really frustrating as it is easy to stop the 'aim' lines where you want them but the dart goes lands anywhere but there. It would be better if it involved more skill than luck, i.e. the blue 'aim' lines moving alot quicker, and the relative dart position being more accurate. The game is ok for a laugh with friends but it is unlikely most people would play it more than once.
Hopefully there'll be a 'Bullseye 2' released where the makers put alot more effort in.
