5.0 out of 5 stars Quality product from knowledgeable supplier., 21 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seem as good as original fitment. Northern DIY website is excellent as did not realise before that these springs can come in differnt thicknesses, diameters and 'turns'. Worth buying from a supplier who seems to know what they are talking about.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quality product for a great price with fast delivery., 9 Jan. 2015
When I wanted another cable my first port of call was Cable Mountain. Having purchased numerous cables from them over the years I have never been disappointed.
Bought this cable from them direct but the cable is the same. I believe you get what you pay for and thinking you will get a quality product for less than a pound including delivery from China is asking a bit much for me. Plus I don't like to wait for weeks for my order.
Ordered this on 6th Jan, dispatched on the 7th and received in a padded envelope on the 9th.
Quality as expected. What they say is what you get.

iGloo Premium: Dark Blue Leather Pouch Case with Pull Tab For Nokia Lumia 800 Mobile Phone

4.0 out of 5 stars A good phone protector, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Paid a bit more for this as it had a brand name compared to some of the cheaper ones that also had poorer reviews.

Seems good quality and well made but phone is loose inside cover and therefore needs to be kept upright otherwise the phone could slide out, negating it's protection.

Pull toggle works well, but only if you put the phone in on the correct side of toggle. A press stud or magnetic catch for the toggle would alleviate both these problems by being obvious which side to put phone in and 'locking' phone in place when closed.

But, for the price, it's still a good product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Usual Fiskars quality and ease of use., 30 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Most of the reviews on here have summed this cutter up. It's well made and easy to use, cutting through branches with little or no effort. I also have the Fiskars Power Gear loppers and Hand Pruners that also cut with little effort.

Watch out for the 'Stop' mark when extending the pole to its maximum. You can also use it for cutting shoots on shrubs near ground level without having to stoop down.

Bought through Amazon and saved over £13 on DIY store price and came with free delivery.

The only other addition I would make to using it is to get yourselves a pair of latex gardening gloves. These make it much easier to grip when using at extended lengths.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of kit for my needs, 30 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased through Amazon Friday evening with free delivery. Dispatched Saturday, arrived Monday.

Came with the UK transformer so don't know why some customers are receiving continental versions.

I am using this, with Cat 5e patch leads bought through MHP Computers elsewhere on Amazon, and have my TV, Sky+HD and Blu Ray all hard wired to the Internet. All work perfectly.

Cheap, fast delivery, does the job. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, fast delivery, they work, end of., 30 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased through MHP Computers. Ordered 4 of these Friday evening with free delivery, dispatched Saturday, arrived Monday.

All 4 work and all are exactly 1 metre long, plug tip to plug tip.

I now have my TV, Sky+HD and Blu Ray all hard wired to the Internet via a TP-Link 5 port switch box, also bought through Amazon and all work brilliantly.

For the functionality of these I'd give these 5 stars on their own. With free delivery and the price they're worth 10 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent price, service and product, 11 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these from Amazon via Spares4Appliances. Arrived within quoted timeframe and, even with a charge for delivery, they were still the cheapest, even comparing with ebay sellers.

If you are buying for a Vax 121, the original Vax, you need to remove the bag attachment nozzle from the channel inside of the body. Then, before replacing the hose, slide the cardboard 'U' attached to the bag into the same channel and then plug the hose back in.

And yes, the bag works fine. Plenty of suction and the dust stays in the bag. You can't ask for more.


Creative EP-630 Noise Isolating Earphones (Black)
Creative EP-630 Noise Isolating Earphones (Black)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for flying, 9 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought two pairs of these for my wife and I to use on a longhaul BA flight as well as for our MP3 players. She uses the smallest silicone tips supplied and I use the medium ones.

Compared to the rubbish headphones supplied on the aircraft these were terrific. The sound quality of the films was excellent and, as we always sit towards the rear of the plane, the engine noise was subdued to a murmer. Downside, you can't hear the stewards asking if you want a drink. Upside, you can't hear the crying babies or the people who think everyone on the plane wants to hear their conversation. Used them on the return night flight purely to reduce outside noise so we could get some sleep.

Sound quality from my ipod is also really good. Overall, I'd imagine sound quality could be improved on but I reckon you'd have to pay considerably more for the experience.

In short, go get 'em.

The price was great, especially compared to Comet who want a penny short of £30 for this item.
The delivery was great, within expected time scale.
The product was great, cleaned heads a treat.
