Sticky Cat Claws - Stop cats from clawing at your furniture!

2.0 out of 5 stars Product did the sticky bit but was a bad fail for me and my cat re stopping any clawing., 28 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had no problem with applying it (to carpeted stairs) but it made things worse. No repellent qualities for my cat who thought it a great new game and within minutes managed to shred and remove the strips. Unfortunate result is that after weeks of scolding him for using this area and partial success in re-directing him to purpose made cat scratch posts, in his eyes, I've just given him a new toy and re-focused his attention to the stair area. Total fail!
My next cunning plan is to try a stair basket to cover up and/or a proposed recommended cheaper DIY solution (from another cat owner) that combines purchase of clear UVC table protector (or similar more robust item) that can be cut to size, plus use of 13mm hemline twist upholstery screws to secure, all available on Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like the pattern, go for it; reasonable price, good performance battery so far., 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought several other 1100 mah batteries I was looking for something that worked well, lasted and looked a bit different. This fits the bill. Like the design, like eGo batteries but am never sure whether I'm getting originals or poor copies. It works well, is a good price, works with 510 fittings. Would have given it 5 stars but it still needs to stand the test of time over many re-charges. On basis of experience so far, would recommend. I'm an ex-smoker, moved onto and been buying e-cig kit for past two years, not all battery purchases have been this satisfactory! Quick dispatch, so also OK it you need a new battery in a hurry.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good for a smallish cat. Engraving difficult to read if disc gets scratched., 26 Jan. 2015
Bought for a cat. Prompt dispatch. Engraving as ordered and was originally clear but within a week became difficult to read as the rest of the disc got scratch marks. May be an OK purchase for dogs. Cat didn't like it and tried to remove it. I gave him time to get used to it but within 2 weeks I removed it for good after he got the ring and disc caught on his teeth and started choking. Had previously attached a cat ID barrel to his collar which caused no issues for the cat but I'd thought was less secure and permanent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, holds large CD collection, needs careful assembly. Good supplier service., 10 Nov. 2014
Sturdy item and compact given the large amount of CD storage. It now holds my CD collection with some room for growth.

Assembled item true to the picture and looks like its made of more solid beech, the shelves don't look they are about to warp. Frame gives a good finish but was a little tricky to assemble single-handed.

The veneer is quite thin and easily damaged, so careful parts checking checking and assembly is needed. When I unpacked the parts I discovered a side panel was chipped, so got in touch with the supplier (assembly instructions include contact details for any problems with missing/damaged parts) . Supplier apologised and quickly dispatched a replacement part... very good service.

I assembled it solo, it took longer and was more fiddly than expected, instructions recommend 2 people for some of the process. Thin back panels fitted well and kit included support fittings. Wall straps and fixtures provided but it can stand alone.

Overall, am happy with purchase, I'd looked at several others within my price bracket and this fits the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value replacement for Pure Siesta, 16 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Glad I went for this one; very happy with the product having researched prices and reviews for similar items.
Does the job and the connections fit well with my Pure Siesta radio.
Cabling is thicker than the original, which gives added robustness (a bonus for me, as my kitten chewed through the original!).
Cabling also longer than original.
Delivery was quick and efficient.
Replacement seamless, didn't need to reset my radio.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected, 9 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For price, seems excellent value and what I wanted re a decent-looking, securely fitting protective cover for my SK171 that provides easy access to my phone, controls and keyboard.. without swamping my phone or adding bulk.

Pros: Fits snugly and securely without restricting access to controls, charger or headset connector. Cut-outs for camera lens, speaker etc align. Is very slim-fitting; magnetic clasp is effective. Looks like leather and a better quality than price or a closer inspection reveals. Had no problem accessing/using the keyboard.Included screen protectors may not be necessary, given case protection.

Possible Cons: Whilst the cover is easy to put on and the internal rigid case provides a firm fit.. that fit is so firm, that once in place,the phone is not (as claimed) easy to remove. Attempts to remove my phone showed that whilst the cover has stitching around edges, the internal back case is glued to the cover and may not withstand many similar attempts. The leather-look cover, whilst looking good, feels like it may be padding cardboard. However, as long as this cover does the job, am unlikely to want to remove it.. and at this price, can afford to replace.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple, cheap and effective, 22 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WINDSHIELD WONDER
Bought this as a cheap alternative to buying car windscreen de-mister products that seemed expensive and reportedly a hassle to use. This works, is easy to use, reaches all areas of the windscreen. It has extra versatility as it can be used to clean windows as well as clear a fogged up windscreen on a cold morning. Easily fits into glove compartment. Not the most robust of items but the included spare micro-fibre bonnet should extend its life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent stain removal, 5 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This visibly worked from day one and has continued to make a difference. It tastes OK, does not seem abrasive and did not give me any sensitivity. Am really impressed, as I have tried other stain removal and whitener toothpastes and been disappointed at the lack of results. It seemed expensive but due to its effectiveness - I'd now call it good value.

Logitech Z-5 Omnidirectional Stereo Speakers

4.0 out of 5 stars Look good, sound good for price, easy to install, 26 Mar. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The good: Easy, simple set up, just plug in via USB and go. No need for sockets for a power adapter, no tangle of wires. They look good. Omnidirectional sound comes from all speaker sides, so you can place them anywhere and don't need to find that perfect sweet spot speaker set up position. Sound is fine if you have no high end hi fi expectations, for desk top speakers it is impressive. High volume with little distortion, reasonably rich sound and OK for all types of music.
The downside: The tiny remote does not work with Spotify or anything beyond mainstream media players. No volume control apart from Windows own. I solved this by downloading volumouse which lets you use the mousewheel as an instant volume controller.
