4.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional for its price, 26 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an amazing product, unless you are doing really critical print calibrated colour work.
It does exactly what it says it does, just don't forget the extra (to the DVI connection) USB lead connection for the video camera ... I did!
Its physically light, runs quite cool, and importunity, has very little density graduation from top to bottom view angles, and is 'SOoooo' bright!
Just one point: the stupid little set-up buttons under the RH lip are a real pain. Because you need to be close to read the very faintly printed ID for each button, the brightness of screen makes your eyes shut down, so you can't read the ID text!
Its too small anyway! BUT, once you get the hang of feeling the sequence of buttons, its OK !!! Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Large footprint, only 600dpi scan, 26 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very clever piece of kit for its price. Print quality is above average for most uses. I'm quite critical scanning resolution and it appears to only go up to 600dpi.
I have been using a scanner which does 2400dpi and produced massive files! But once cropped and worked on in Photoshop, that resolution is necessary. So, if 600 is the limit than thats a bit sad.
However, as a basic machine with loads of additional 'bells and whistles' its very good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and simple, 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As explained, looks and functions exactly as well as attractively.
But as always a challenge to fit; especially to get the two doors to close exactly in the same way .... the box can go a little rhomboidal, but that's because I'm a less that perfect wall unit hanger !

5.0 out of 5 stars Its good and cheap!, 18 Nov. 2013

Does what it says it does. It can't really go wrong, so why buy a more expensive one - there are no bells and whistles for these things !!

4.0 out of 5 stars Certainly heavy!, 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good product. If you use on French Doors or similar and you cover the doors with a blind as well, but make sure you don't have venetian blinds too close as they get stuck in the protruding knob!
Its certainly a very secure safety bolt and looks good!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic product, but its goes wrong ...., 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an amazing mouse especially for complex gaming action and also multiple function applications such as professional animation apps. It does the biz, no issue.
But ...
We've had two and now on our third. The first failed after about 11 months regular usage, an earlier failure was the decorative lamps and some minor functionality, software reload may have fixed that. Then it stopped working totally.
The second failed after 20days: it didn't move the pointer, although all other functions were normal.
My son uses this device and now hopes his third one will live up to the promotional life expectancy of an expensive mouse.
As his Dad, I want a message sent to the manufacturers: please improve your Quality Control at the various manufacturing stages, and run some tests to failure so that you identify faults before the user does.
Two failures from two identical products within a year (so far) is an appalling record.
Fix it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Lamps are OK, 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These lamps are ok, they are fitted into an IKEA desk lamp, but with difficulty, not because of the lamp, but the grippers in the IKEA head erode and then the pins of these small lamps can break off. If the pins were a little more robust, then maybe they'd last longer.

Good clippers, does the job, easy to use and the handles fit the hand well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent drive, 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a perfect drive for large archive projects, extensive TV programme library, large amounts of historical data etc.
The drive runs cool when it can and uses a vary-speed mode of operation. However, this is slightly over-rated because most modern computers can put a drive asleep, regardless of its own internal use monitor.
Hey Ho! It makes good advertising!

4.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, although less conventional !, 2 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Service from supplier excellent.

This material would make a good shower curtain, I've no doubt !

However, I used it to make a breathable brick wall lining for a clothes wardrobe. The wardrobe has no back panel - its built into a brick wall corner, I didn't want any ingress of dust, bugs or damp, yet the bricks need to breath.

Its works great!
