    Bloody Useless

    Having spent a fair amount of money on this and a variety of scart/ s-video connectors & adaptors and more of my patience than warranted I'll be as "childish" as I choose. It's a turd and no amount of polishing will change that..as chief ^#!& shoveller around here you should make yourself aware that the chance of getting this to work with a UK VCR are between none and zero. And before you going gobbing off again selling something unfit for purpose, by misreprentation, is an offence. The use of "easy" would be appear to fraudulent .."includes everything you need to transfer your tape videos and burn them directly onto DVD".. a blatant lie. "The Trade Descriptions Act 1968 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom which prevents manufacturers, retailers or service industry providers from misleading consumers as to what they are spending their money on. This law empowers the judiciary to punish companies or individuals who make false claims about the products or services that they sell. Applying a false trade description to goods is a strict liability offence: provided it is shown that the description was applied and was false, the accused has to prove certain defences in order to escape conviction. Each product sold must be as described, of satisfactory quality, and fit for purpose. As described refers to any advert or verbal description made by the trader. Satisfactory quality covers minor and cosmetic defects as well as substantial problems. It also means that products must last a reasonable time. But it doesn't give you any rights if a fault was obvious or pointed out to you at point of sale. Fit for purpose covers not only the obvious purpose of an item but any purpose you queried and were given assurances about by the trader." Wind in your neck or I'm going to stamp on it very hard.
