Modern Pince Nez Reading glasses /Spectacles Gold colour +3.50 with pouch
Offered by Eco PL Ltd
Price: £14.99

2.0 out of 5 stars It all depends on the size and shape of your nose!, 14 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these because I was tired of having to fish out my monocle when, out and about, I wanted, briefly, to look closely at something or some written thing (the Essilor special lenses in my daily specs can't support bi-focal). However, PAY ATTENTION! the size ie the WIDTH of your nose and its proportions are essential as to whether these "pince-nez" will fit on easily and allow you proper vision through both lenses. Sadly, I have a small nose - ie it's straight but narrow so there's nothing for a pair of these useful specs to grip! Oh! so very disappointing for me. However, for an outlay of just under £15 I've not broken the bank! Do! I counsel you, consider whether your nose will support (hold) these useful occasional specs before buying.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a precision tool - the connection's the problem, 9 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The fault with the wrench set is caused by the sloppy connection by which the handle is supposed to grip the socket:
the connection on the lower end of the handle which should "click" snugly into the socket is "sloppy" so it invariably leaves the socket behind on the spark plug!
This makes it an unreliable and a tiresome tool - which is a shame because otherwise it would be a most useful bit of kit.
However, it's only fair to say that you get what you pay for so it's unfair to expect a precision tool for the very, very low price.


The Queen's Palaces [DVD]
The Queen's Palaces [DVD]
Dvd ~ Fiona Bruce
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth watching; also to send to foreign friends to show them that no-one does it like the British!, 23 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Queen's Palaces [DVD] (DVD)
Interesting and well filmed. The commere (French for female commentator) is quite good but intrudes somewhat lacking the essential ability to inform the viewer while being self-effacing - a skill BBC staff before the camera and microphone had quite naturally up until the end of the 1960s.

Poulenc; Respighi; Rheinberger - Organ Concertos
Price: £12.24

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality, fine musicianship - sound with depth and clarity - highly recommended, 23 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clear sound - high quality - moving music. The Rheinberger has a special significance - it was the audition piece for entry into the Royal College of Music for a young man who later became the father of a family friend. Now in his eighties and in poor health he was delighted to be able to listen to this excellent recording - as was my best friend - me, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good kit, 23 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love it - well made and works well but it takes three litres of expensive oil to load it and unless you eat chips daily - it would, I am sad to tell you, be an indulgence. While it doesn't cost a lot - quality oil does!

2.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, 23 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are many dash cams available; choice is the problem but remember, the more you pay, usually, the better the quality. This dash cam works but I wonder whether it may, perhaps, be outside the law in some jurisdictions because the screen is constantly "on" and shows the view being recorded by the camera while the vehicle is in motion (as well as at a standstill) - which could be distracting to some drivers whose eyes may be drawn towards the screen rather than focusing on the road before them as they drive.
Specific gripes:
1) forget the "handbook" - the English is unintelligible but you can, with guesswork, work out what the author is trying to tell you about setting up the dashcam!
2) I got it "almost" right (I think) after three hours of attempting to set up this dashcam.
3) As a technical tool, which might be of use as supporting evidence in a court, it seems to me to be far from acceptable.
4)Unless you have a USB3 port on your laptop/PC/tablet you'll not be able to download directly from the dashcam.
So what have I done with it? I put it back in its box and filed it among kit I might play with on a wet Sunday when I've nothing better to do and then I bought an expensive (three figures!) dashcam with GPS from Garmin which works like a dream (and shows, as it should) a blank screen whicle you drive. It only took 10 minutes to set up! As I say: you get what pay for!
