5.0 out of 5 stars A Tight Fit Indeed!, April 18, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review deals mainly with the tight fit of the vertical pipe. First, I thought this was a manufacturing defect, but I found it present on my 20-year-old unit. The reason this is so tight is so that all the pump vacuum can be sent to the cleaning-robot. Second, I think I found a good way to install the vertical pipe. Use dishwashing soap, as advised. Liberally. Then, insert the handle of the largest screwdriver you have into the hose-tee, and start screwing clockwise. It took about 2 minutes. (I was prepared to do heroic pressing on my 12-inch bench vise. Not necessary). Third, avoid over-tightening the black handle in an attempt to develop more vacuum. Can result in stripping out the plastic threads. If you need more vacuum, try back-flushing the filter. A halfway-clogged filter will drop the vacuum in no time. Fourth, the vacuum gauge came pointing NOT to zero, but to 4 inches of vacuum. I broke off the zero-peg on the face, and was able to gently reverse-tighten back to 0. Fifth, the gauge will usually corrode and fail after 2-3 years, and a replacement is not easily available. So just pull out the makeshift visual suction tube (supplied with Arneson / Hayward robots) twice a year, and recalibrate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fight clutter. Mercilessly., February 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've got these in both the 18" long, and the 12" long versions. Absolutely indispensable for Food Pantry clutter, Garage Clutter, and Office Clutter. Not to mention Christmas Clutter. Also look at their model 29300 Labels and Plastic Holders, which snap right into the front of the trays.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was late to this party., February 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've had these trays for about 30 years. I can't believe I never got this label kit. Absolutely FANTASTIC. I'll be ordering more.

Follow-up April 2016. These are 3 inches wide and 3/4" tall. They also fit 29300, 29301, 29302, 29303. Please click "helpful" and also send questions if you like.

1.0 out of 5 stars How low can Canon stoop?, November 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
25 years of various printers. This one works fine for a few weeks, then dies. The latest: I am talking page 1 prints in color fine, then page 2 comes out blank. Stick in a brand-new set of cartridges (all 5) and still nothing. Can't even make a black and white copy. Play around for 3 hours and ZERO. Try all the "deep cleaning" and "print test pattern" and of course the "restart Windows" desperation move. The only thing left working is the scanner. I would gladly pay three times as much for something bulletproof. These little toy printers become tiring and life-wasting.

A family member also has this exact same model. Same story. If you have a deadline, it is sure to conk out. I run dual printers now: high-speed HP bulletproof laser in black and white, and then the Canon for color. The Canon goes right in the trash tomorrow morning.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hopeless. Musta hired some teenage MBA from India as the Marketing VP., December 8, 2014
I was out at the Costco in early December. They had the TurboTax display 6 feet inside the door. Another customer and I walked right up to the four products on display. Bafflement--where's Deluxe??. Note that the cover says in LARGE letters "Deductions and Homeowners". Then in teeny tiny font: "deluxe" which we simpletons overlooked. The clerk assured us that the real stuff would arrive soon. All three of us were tricked, and wandered away, cuz it was right there, cleverly camouflaged.

This useless change will cause promotions and bonuses for the executives involved.

There will be more promotions and bonuses the following year when they change it back. Mama mia!

5.0 out of 5 stars Info on the mute button., December 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Mute button didn't work at first. The mute button is great for killing those darn pop-up noisy adverts.

So I unplugged the old keyboard, leaving just a single keyboard, re-booted. No problem now.

I'm a heavy-duty typer, but I do glance at the keyboard from time to time. The N key had entirely worn off the old keyboard, and typing in a dark room was iffy. The new one seems ok for now. The keys are somewhat nicely dimpled, despite reports from some reviewers that they were "flat". And they'll never have the nice feel of the old steel IBM PC keyboards, made in America by Americans, what a novel idea...

I must recommend this to my mother, who has macular degeneration.

It is great to have a USB cable connexion. That way you don't end up with dead batteries and wireless pairing problems.

That's all I have after two days. The rest of the reviews cover it completely. Five stars for the super price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Total idiocy., November 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
All in all, this has been a disaster for the last two Thanksgivings. I've spent 4 or 5 hours each year trying to get the template software to simply put the person's name on the backside of the tent card. (Total failure each year). It needs to be "upside down" so that guests can see the name no matter which side of the table they are sitting at.

The best that anyone can suggest is to run the sheets thru the printer TWICE. Are you kidding? It's nearly 2015.

Once again, using magic marker to write them up. Really a sad case of software incompetence. Should have hired some American programmers....

3.0 out of 5 stars The wheels came off. Literally., August 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After six months of usage, the wheels literally fell off. The problem is that the wheels are held by a rivet that is (loosely) pressed into the plastic. The cutting is excellent. But if the topmost portion of the winemaker's foil capsule is held on by glue, any attempt to pull off the foil off the bottle will ultimately loosen a cutting wheel.

So I'm ordering two or three and treating it like shaving equipment that doesn't last too long. The price is right, and free shipping by Prime. I fear that the higher-priced units have the same limitations, and would love for someone to reply via comment if they have found (& Tested!)something better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Caution--some sizes missing, February 6, 2014
Most such sets have 13 bits. This has just 11. Size 15/64th is one of the two that is missing.
