MiniSun - Modern Antique Brass Adjustable Reading/Craft Floor Lamp
MiniSun - Modern Antique Brass Adjustable Reading/Craft Floor Lamp
Offered by The Light Factory
Price: £34.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good lamp - but get the right bulbs, not those specified, 12 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice floor-standing lamp - but ignore the specification that it requires a 40W bulb. In fact the maximum wattage is 25W. The 40W bulb that I bought with the lamp blew up after short usage. I bought a pack of 25W bulbs but am now stuck with 4, 40W bulbs that I have no use for.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a replacement for a fluorescent tube in the kitchen. Although the lamp cover feels rather flimsy (it is plastic) the LED lights are great and provide as much light as the old tube did, and the whole thing is far more energy efficient.

Easy to install - only time will tell if the LEDs have a long life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good for a laugh, 12 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice material but impractical for wearing. The sizes are far too small - I am normally a small size, but even medium in these is far too small. The waist size is just about right, but everything else is too constricted and fails to adequately cover the essentials.

Still, they made my wife laugh.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor Visual Quality, 8 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Greatest Hits Live [DVD] (DVD)
I was delighted when this finally came out on DVD. I have had the video for many years, but am wary about playing it too often.

This was a magnificent concert and this DVD is good value at the price. However the visual quality is vastly inferior to that of my old video. The images are blurred and the colours are faded, compared to those on the video. At first it caused me a degree of eye-strain, but I managed to watch the whole concert without too much discomfort.

I may be unfortunate and have a faulty DVD or it is a poorly produced/manufactured copy of the original concert tapes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Door and Filter problems, 20 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a large, spacious litter tray that should cater for most cats. We have two kittens who are most enthusiastic when it comes to kicking litter, but this contains most of the fallout.

However, the one that I received had a door that jams - it could either let cats in but not out, or out but not in (neither is good). I had to use a heat gun to soften the plastic on the sill and reshape the door entrance.

The filter is also a problem. The kittens had removed it within 5 minutes of our putting the litter tray on the floor. It really needs some sort of protective grill over it to prevent easy removal by a cat.

But, despite these problems, it is a vast improvement over open litter trays.

4.0 out of 5 stars No delivery to the islands, 18 Oct. 2014
I can only agree with the other reviews.

A good value multi-gym. It takes some time to assemble as the instructions are not the most clear that I have come across. A particular word of advice. You are advised not to tighten up all bolts until so instructed, and this is right at the end of the assembly procedure.

An exception to this is the bolts at the bottom of the weight stack - these should be tightened BEFORE you install the weights. If you wait until later in the process you will have to raise the weight stack to gain access to the bolts. The weight stack is heavy (over 30kgs) and I had to use wooden wedges to give me some limited access to the bolts.

My main concern is, however, that if you live in the Scottish Islands, you cannot buy this from Amazon - they do not deliver here. I bought mine from Tesco Direct: they do not seem to have any problem with delivering to remote locations. So get your act together Amazon and look after your far flung customers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Value for money, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These were bought for a model railway - other brands would have cost much more.

They look good and, with care, can be bent to different shapes (be careful) to give very realistic woodland scenes. As far as value for money is concerned, look no further.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tone them down, 18 April 2014

You can't argue about value for money.

These are well constructed trees, but are somewhat bright green. Take some water colours and repaint them (it's easy): in darker shades of green and you get a very good scenic item.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fiddly, 16 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not bad, but it has its problems.

The main problem is that you have to assemble the guard rail and stanchions around the signal platform. The stanchions are very fragile and can break easily and it is not very easy to bend the guard rail to the right shape.

Unless you are using Hornby track you may also find it difficult (if not impossible) to attach the signal to the track. I haven't found that to be too great an inconvenience as I have been able to build the signals into the baseboard.

The signals are purely cosmetic, as they cannot be operated remotely - they can only be changed manually.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice machine - shame about the software, 16 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a smart, slim machine but it comes without any useful software. There is no word processing programme (although it has a preloaded option to buy Microsoft Office). It has three competing anti-virus programmes, two of which again come with options to purchase.

The Windows 8 operating system is dreadful (not HP's fault) and I spent a few hours downloading fixes from the internet to make it more user friendly. I also had to spend some time uninstalling some of the clutter (mainly the programmes that kept popping up and asking me to buy them) and then installing the programmes that I needed - particularly Microsoft Word, for which I fortunately had the installation disc.

All now works well, but do not expect to receive a machine with all the whistles and bells that you might have expected in the past. If you don't already have the installation discs for the programmes that you need to use, be prepared to have to pay out some more money to acquire them.
