5.0 out of 5 stars Good 2 Go, 28 Mar 2014
This is one of those handy gadgets that you will need from time to time.
If you are a traveller then this will be so handy for you. You can weigh your suitcase before you get to the check in desk where you normally feel those palpitations about whether you are over your baggage allowances ( Been there ?????!!! )
If you are an eBay seller then this will be useful for you to weigh your parcels before you get to the post office. You may then want to increase your p&p rather than just guess!
It's a sturdy and well made product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hoover Up, 28 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
So, the Hoover Unplugged.
Nice name. Nice Hoover. Nice style.
This is ready to use out of the box. There is some charge in, so you can easily vacuum around the house.
I charged for about seven hours first off to fully charge the Hoover. There is an led light on the front which lets you see just how much charge is in the Hoover. Great idea this.
This Hoover is powerful. Very powerful when the turbo boost is applied.
The "collection bag" fills in no time at all. This Hoover could use a bigger vessel.
Nice touch is the carpet or hard floor use. Just a mere slide of a button is all that is required.
For me the real downside is the weight of the Hoover when in use.
This is not a lightweight Hoover. I felt like I was dragging around a lead weight.
Also there are no attachments with this. How would you hoover the stairs?!!!!!

Edit: I've been using this regularly for several weeks now and I love it. It seems to get lighter every time I use it and is so easy to manoeuvre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Food Processor, 23 Mar 2014
This is a good food processor, as you would expect from a leading brand manufacturer.
So far it has delivered on everything I have used it for.
It has all the attachments for mixing, chopping, grating etc.
I like it.

Dont waste your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a Gadget, 23 Mar 2014
This powerbank is more than just a gadget.
So, if you are on the move, either at work or holidaying, this will be so useful to you.
Charge the unit via a mains plug and when fully charged, you have the capability to then charge your phone, tablet, laptop etc. Forget carrying various chargers around with you. This is a one charge unit.
It did come with some charge already so I charged my HTC Salsa, which was almost empty, to full in around 3 hours. There was a little left so I charged my Sony Xperia with about 10% before the Power Bank was flat.
It took 8 hours to then charge it up fully by the mains.
I think it could come in really handy when I'm on the go, I just pop the Power Bank and lead into my bag and I could then charge it on the bus to work and back if needed.
Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Torch...but, 23 Mar 2014
This is a good torch, presented in a lovely box which would be great for giving as a present.

The torch is made of a high quality alloy which I presume will last a long time. It is a good size to keep in the car or even in a pocket. When fully charged it gives off a very bright light, very bright indeed. I can envisage getting a lot of use from this torch.

One down side to this is the odd sized rechargeable battery. You cannot use a standard size rechargeable battery with this torch.Conversantly you will not be able to use this battery for any other appliance.I am not sure what the logic is for this.

It is not a cheap torch.

It is a very good torch but I have a slight reservation with the battery size.

Overall, a great quality product, let down by the instructions which are gibberish and do not make any sense at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling and Atmospheric, 9 Mar 2014
Black Roses is incredibly well-researched and detailed.

Set in 1933 Clara leaves England, and a boyfriend behind who expects her to marry him and to give up her dreams of being an actress, in search of a part in a new film called Black Roses. Whilst at the film studios she meets two of Goebbels aides who invite her and another young actress to a party where they are then introduced to Magda Goebbels, a woman consumed by the drama of her own existence. As Clara becomes more and more involved in the Nazi wives lives Magda takes a shine to Clara and starts to trust her.

The story starts with the death of a young girl who had fallen (or was she pushed) from a window. This is an excerpt from early on in the book talking about the rise of the Third Reich and of Clara's situation.

"Who could have foreseen how quickly things would change. Even for Clara herself. When she arrived in Berlin she could never have imagined what would happen in such a short space of time. She could never have known how it would transform her. All that mattered now, though, was that no one else should know."

As the story progresses we slowly learn the significance of her death. and of how far the Nazis would go in their quest for power.

I was surprised at how women were treated in the new Germany, frowned upon if they smoked in public, encouraged to marry, stay at home and have lots of babies, wear German designed fashion instead of French or Italian. In contrast the Nazi wives and girlfriends wore gloves from Italy and handmade shoes from Florence.

I really liked Clara, though her family thought she was flighty, unreliable and irresponsible. Even though she didn't enjoy the attentions of one of Hitler's brown shirts, she was persuaded by Leo, a British intelligence officer to spy on him and Magda Goebbels and, gradually, she felt her new identity emerge.

Overall I really enjoyed this book, though sometimes I thought there was too much attention to detail when I just wanted the story to move along at a quicker pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Cable, 4 Mar 2014
I use this to connect my laptop to the tv.
I get a great picture when streaming and it is long enough so I don't have any serious obstacles to negotiate.
Look at the price now for a 2 meter high deff cable.

5.0 out of 5 stars It does the job, 4 Mar 2014
Ok. So what do you want from an alarm clock radio.
I want it to wake me up, gently,with maybe some music.
So. Set the station. Set the time to be woken.
Job done.
It is not flashy.
It does not have bells and whistles.
It does not have superb sound,adequate though.
It is just functional.
It is also a good price.

5.0 out of 5 stars One unit fits all, 4 Mar 2014
I bought this unit for my son for his new flat.
This unit does the lot.
It plays the radio superbly well and has more than 20 preset stations, all easily set.
It has a dock for the ipad/iphone and the sound played through these devices is really good.
It also had a cd slot, which is most unusual these days.My son can play all his music now on this one unit.
It is compact enough to have on the table, without it taking up much room.
I like the appearance of this and I like the sound.
I would say good value for money, for a one fits all music unit
