1.0 out of 5 stars looks unlocked and resealed, 28 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Summary: The phone seems to be unlocked somewhere in Nigeria and re-sealed back.

The phone arrived in a sealed box, so at least the first look was promising, albeit the outside slide packaging was not in a very good state. I opened the seal and the first impression was that someone has touched this phone prior. You can straight away tell from looking at the plastic sleeve inside which the phone was kept. It was all touched around. Anyways I continued to press the power button and to my fear the phone never took me through any guided setup, like setting up day/time/location, fingerprint scanning etc etc ...

This confirmed my fear that this phone has been played around earlier and re-sealed back. I have lots of friends who have bought the same phone from high-street retailer in different countries and 100% of them confirmed to me about the samsung default guided setup is the first thing you should see when you press the power button, and of course "is it not common sense after all".

It also mentioned the default location as Mushin, which seems to be in Nigeria. Now who had setup the location as Mushin before even the phone was opened. not me at least. It is a very simple understanding that you buy any new phone, computer and you are always, always given the welcome guided setup by the manufacturer.

Anyways it had to go back within 1 hour of opening. Just waiting for my refund. I suggest that to get some peace of mind pay an extra £50 - £60 and go to some high street retailer for phones at least. If it was sold directly by amazon, things would have been much better and genuine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish ..., 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Disappointing ... The product did not work. There was no sound at all from the satellite speakers after installing. I can agree it was just bad luck and the piece could be defective, but how can we trust a product that fails to work straight outside the box (in today's competitive market). At least I will not trust. First impression is the last.

Also the overall system did not gave a robust feel on holding (especially the satellites) ...

No more cambridge audio searching in the future for sure ...

Going for Klipsch 2.1 pro media instead. Hopefully that will work ...


Sanskar Vidhi
Sanskar Vidhi
by S.K. Sharma
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.50

5.0 out of 5 stars A must addition to your temple book inventory, 22 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sanskar Vidhi (Paperback)
A must have book in your temple. I bought this book primarily to formalise Annaprashana ceremony. I must say it helped me a lot to gather relevant information, text and audio and detailed the whole process very well. The rituals were much more effectively performed than I would have randomly done in either case.

I am sure it must be good for other Sanskar Vidhis especially when you stay where you have to DIY it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but could have been better, 22 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a good tea filter, but I was expecting it to be a bit better. I have a fairly good collection of teas from India and China and some finest teas like Darjeeling First Flush, Nilgiri Organic and some variants of Assam Black need a really fine filter to get the best result. I thought this one could have done the job to that level, but it does not. The filter is just not fine enough for the specialised teas.

It is good though and ok for a large variety of teas.

For the finest Darjeelings and other I still use the 10p filter that came with it and it works brilliantly.

I will still recommend buying it. It is very handy and fits most cups ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice light-weight casseroles which keeps the food warm enough to eat. I have tested it for up to 2 hours and the food was still warm (not hot though as it was put initially).

I think if it would have been a bit heavily built the dissipation of heat would have been slower than observed.

But overall it does the job reasonably well.
