I’d browsed the site a few times without spotting anything of interest, a few days ago I spotted an autocue bluetooth remote, it had a start price of £1.00, the normal Amazon retail was £23.38 so I thought it was worth a bid.
I’d decided my max bid would be £3.50, VAT and £4.99 P&P would be added to the winning bid. Someone had bid £1.20 and the site automatically incremented my bid to £2.20, no other bids arrived so, although I bid a max of £3.50, I actually won the item for £2.20, with VAT and courier delivery it came to £8.63 for an £23.00 item.
Now, there was a chance the item was broken or faulty......when it arrived I put 2 AAA batteries in and opened the autocue app (iCue) on my iPad, the remote had a light on to indicate it was working but virtually none of the buttons worked, in the autocue app I selected keyboard remote and was then able to ‘remap’ the buttons. The remote now works as it should and will make operation of the autocue for the talent, a lot easier to use.
