2.0 out of 5 stars Reliability issues for me, 9 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had the machine for just over two years and it's broken for the second time. I've descaled regularly every two or three months (it's used once or twice a day on average). When it's working it's wonderful.

I was surprised that the warranty repair I had last year didn't have a year's guarantee - and my next (just) out of warranty repair by Coffee Classics - the UK servicer - will cost me £200, even though perhaps the part they fitted previously has failed or wasn't fitted correctly. And the new repair won't have any guarantee at all... Sage cust service won't consider the repair once 2 months out of warranty, which is to be expected I suppose, but their reputation could be enhanced by keeping customers happy.

Ever since new I've had the VALV message telling me the boiler drain valves are blocked when descaling even though the boilers drain fast and free. So I get halfway through the decale and have to complete the old way by leaving the solution in the machine and draining the next day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal cheap backup battery, 26 Jan. 2016

Works well. Doesn't hold as much charge as an original battery, but still fine for hundreds of photos without flash. Ideal therefore as a backup battery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cable, but read this first before trying to boot from a new disk, 26 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worked perfectly for the purpose described. It came with a very useful guide to installation.

However, for those of you trying to install an SSD, the laptop for which this is designed can only book from the disk in Slot 1, so before putting the SSD into slot 2, here is the process to clone them if you are not booting from a CD (e.g. Acronis).

Remove battery & power and install SSD in Slot 2 using this cable/kit.

Powe up, and clone the disk using a tool such as Paragon/Acronis.

Remove battery & power again. Swap over disks, & reboot from superfast SSD.

A wonderful summary of an exciting period in the development of Western 'Serious' music. The reproduced articles are simultaneously thoughful and thought-provking. It's intereresting to see with hindsight the missing parts, e.g. a return to tonality, and a predominance of drone/minimal music. Very enjoyable though!

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, but not really worth the extra, 26 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is OK as a tuner. I used a free polyphonc tuner on the ipad and was very impressed so thought I'd try this as an addition to my Snark.

The polyphonic display is rather small to use, and on both a Fender strat and a decent acoustic, the tuner takes a fair bit of strumming to detect the tuning.

Add to that the lack of ability to stop Drop D, DADGAD or maybe a custom tuning and it's an expensive luxury. For single notes I prefer the clarity of the display on the £10 Snark.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy method to pair with an existing TP-LINK powerline network, read this if you are having problems., 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Solid performers - however pairing with an existing network is very fiddly... UNLESS you use the PowerLine Utility from the manufacturer's website. I had a nice working network of three other TP-LINK powerline adapters but could not get these new PA411s to connect using the Pair button. Instead, simply plugging in each adapter to a computer (one by one, using ethernet) and first using "Reset Local Device" then Set All Device's Network Names (I chose Default here) gave a reassuring success message each time.

Each adapter could then be unplugged and moved to the place in the house where it was required. Easy peasy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Graphic Bio-pic in book form, 12 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Castro (Paperback)
Like a film, the book features flashbacks and cut-scenes. I enjoyed it immensely and think it is a good introduction to this major figure of 20th Century politics. It is generally sympathetic but not as much as the wholly partisan (but nonetheless very entertaining) the "... For Beginners" series by Icon Press.
