5.0 out of 5 stars Quality, compact, flexible reciever, 9 Dec. 2013
This gives decent sound in my TV room. I'm using it with the KEF 5005.2 speaker package in a mildly acoustically treated room (Primacoustics London 12).

I like the compact size and number of HDMI inputs.

The detachable power cable gives you the opportunity to upgrade this if you believe it'll make a difference or just to customise the length.

The speaker binding posts accept banana plugs.

There is even a remote in/out connection in case you have an IR receiver elsewhere in your set up and need to keep this receiver out of line-of-sight.

There are lots of configuration options to satisfy all but the most demanding users - just have a look at the user manual (available on the Marantz site).

The iPhone app works pretty well too. I use it to navigate the Spotify functionality as well as to adjust surround modes (until I get them added to my universal remote).

The auto setup (Audessy) does a pretty good job of measuring the room acoustics. Advanced users can use the built in Equaliser manually too if they prefer.

You can charge phones and tablets using the front USB.

Lack of Wifi doesn't bother me because I have a hub in my TV console connected to powerline ethernet.

The only negative I can think of at this price...

The remote is a bit plasticky but I use a universal remote anyway.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect and at an unbelievable price., 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The good:

The build of these is very good even at 4 x the price.
Includes an ethernet cable.
Stand is sturdy and offers a few options for mounting.
Privacy button (this and the power/network lights can be turned off) is nice.
2 way audio might be useful for some.
MJPEG image quality was okay for this level of camera - same as all VGA cameras I've used.
The Wifi setup was very easy and connected to my LAN without a hitch - unlike Y-Cam I've used in the past.

The not so good:

Documentation relies on you knowuing a little about networking - same as with all ip webcams.
MPEG-4 Video quality is pretty poor whenever there is movement in the frame - lots of blockiness. BTW I had to hunt for the URL for the MPEG4 feed. It's not in the supplied documentation but it is: rtsp://IPADDRESS:554/img/video.sav. There is some good info on the ispyconnect website.
Couldn't get the browser based video to work. Tried IE 8,9,10, Chrome and Safari, PC and iPhone. The only way I could get the MJPEG feed was to use SightHound or iSpyConnect.
Power cable is a bit short but at least the DC adapter is quite compact.

I really wanted to view the feed with my iPhone as I do for my other Y-Cams but just couldn't get it to work. I have sent these back and will probably buy another (much more expensive unfortunately) Y-Cam. That said, other reviewers have not complained about the same thing so I still recommmend giving them a try.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not fit for purpose., 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not easy to remove camera from case with strap attached to camera and fed through case as intended. Also the metal buckle (which looks really nice) constantly comes into contact with the camera which will soon result in a scratched camera.

Even using the camera (Ixus 240) supplied lanyard is not possible with the case since it gets in the way of the magnetic clasp. And if you feed the camera lanyard through the hole in the case you have to unfeed it every time you want to take the camera out.

A shame really since the case looks nice and fits the Ixus 240 well, but I always use the lanyard to protect the camera against falls.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit overpriced and not that suitable for all canon cameras, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the idea of a wrist strap but for me on my 5D Mk2 I find the top buttons quite difficult to reach while my hand is in the strap. I have to loosen it quite a bit to overcome this but then the strap is so loose it is almost pointless.

Also consider the extra bump that will be on your camera which may affect getting it in and out of whatever bag you use.

Otherwise it is well made and attaches/detaches quite easily.

My son loves the smell and it's probably the only way he'll tolerate an extra hair rinse after swimming. Goes into hair easily and rinses out quickly. Leaves his hair a lot less coarse than without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Choc Mint - Best Flavour!, 25 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using Promax for years as an in between meal snack alternative. Promax mixes easily with water or milk which is why it's my favorite.

Chocolate has always been much better than any of the other flavours but the taste of the sweetener was always evident. Choc mint either uses a different sweetener or its flavour is masked by the mint. Either way this is a great flavour. And the mint makes it a bit refreshing. Well done Maximuscle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality complete kit, 23 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great that everything you need is in one kit. Very quick and easy to assemble. I'm using it with a 580EXII and the Lastolite 3m ETTL cord. The cold shoe accepts the flash on its own or the base of the extension cord. Everything fits snug and feels very sturdy.

The lightbox is very effective at increasing the size of the light and is easy to fold/unfold.

The 2 bags are of good enough quality and are great to have.

Just what I was after. Product is well made and easy to install. Enough space between the hooks to make use of all of them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and good length but a bit fiddly, 13 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Getting the adapter onto the camera's hotshoe is a bit tricky... the pins are too straight to depress when sliding onto the hotshoe so I have to try to squeeze them in before sliding on. The flash end was very tight at first but has loosened up a bit after a few fittings.

Used with a EOS 450D and 580 EX II flash. All ETTL functions working as hoped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 13 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My previous one of these cost 5 times as much on the high street. Nice discrete cover. Just enough grip to give you a more secure feeling but still goes in and out of pockets easily. Extends about 1mm beyond the screen to give some protection when lying face down.
