Anker  CB310 Full-Size Ergonomic Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo for Desktop with Water-Resistant and whisper-quiet Keyboard Design
Anker CB310 Full-Size Ergonomic Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo for Desktop with Water-Resistant and whisper-quiet Keyboard Design

4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Keyboard, still getting used to the Mouse, 18 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst I'm not that keen on the mouse as it doesn't suit my smallish hand that well I can however confirm the keyboard is excellent. I've been using a dinovo edge keyboard for several years now and which has started losing its Bluetooth connection regularly (new ones have wireless) so I thought this keyboard/mouse set looked good, at a reasonable price with some excellent reviews from other purchasers. I love the fact there is only one 2.4 GHz wireless transmitter required for both devises which means I can free up one USB port eventually. I will persevere with the mouse and train my hand to get used to the different shape as its an excellent mouse with various functions you would expect on a mouse costing the same as for the whole combo set. I've also had dealings with Anker in the past and thought their post sale customer service was second to none. Buy from them with confidence.


Dyson Tangle-free Turbine tool

4.0 out of 5 stars What it does it does well.....!!!, 17 Aug 2014
It's not supposed to work with a hand-held but as we have a normal Dyson I thought I'd give it a go anyway. It does work with the DC34 hand-held albeit I suspect not at its best. The brush heads rotate okay, but as its brushes are driven by suction only there is a drop off as the battery fades fairly quickly. When it's fitted to the hose of a normal Dyson cleaner its a great little tool which flicks the dirt and hair up as you go and pulls it directly into the machine without tangling the brushes. Ideal for cleaning dirt and dog hairs off fabric furniture and the car floor mats and seats. You could argue its not an essential purchase but for what it does it does really well.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Years without a flicker., 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had these headphones for the last 3 years (just got round to reviewing them now) and they're in use 3 or 4 times for a couple of hours at a time a week and they've performed beautifully since I first got them back in May 2011. The noise cancelling unit works tremendously well wherever you are and especially on trains or planes allowing you to more-or-less forget where you are and just enjoy your audio. Sound quality is very good with a good bass and clear tone. The battery lasts a long time but keep a spare handy as the sound difference when you haven't got the noise cancelling switched on is very noticeable. These headphones are light to wear, very comfortable and fold up neatly to be stored away. I would highly recommend these Sennheiser headphones as I've not found anything better at the price point.


Dremel Wall & Floor Grout Removal Kit

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs a Steady Hand, 25 May 2014
This is an attachment for a tool that rotates at high speed so it needs a steady hand and a large chunk of concentration to use it properly or you'll be marking the tiles as well. However, for what it is it does the job much easier than having to scrape grout out by hand. (I know as I tried it) The tile grout in my bathroom was as hard as rock but by running this over the grout line a couple of times I got a nice clean channel for re-grouting in to. I did knick a tile or two but if you keeps your wits about you you'll know when this is happening and can withdraw the tool quickly keeping the tile damage to a minimum. You can set the tool to cut at different depths but I found using it at its maximum setting with a nice steady smooth action worked best. Its a good tool and does the job as its supposed to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a brilliant Scanner, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having used a previous model of a Fujitsu S510 ScanSnap Scanner and then replacing it with a far inferior Kodak i1120 Scanner which caused me no end of frustration I've now made the decision to replace this with a ScanSnap iX500 and on my early use experience is light years better than the two scanners that went before.
Scans are quick, and the USB3 communication means this is about as good as it gets at this price point. The ScanSnap Organiser software is exceptional and getting a full version of Adobe Acrobat X1 is just the icing on the cake. Highly Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Expensive for Plastic Parts, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The item is as described and of course its an original Dyson accessory. However, considering what I paid for these items I wouldn't say; they are worth the price I paid for them. I wouldn't buy these again unless they reduced the cost.


Arctic Freezer i11 CPU Cooler

4.0 out of 5 stars Slightly difficult to fit but still a good choice for a cpu cooler, 23 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted the Arctic Freezer i11 to replace another cpu cooler where the fan had failed. I found this slightly difficult to fit on an Intel 1155 motherboard as the back plate had to be held in place whilst you lined up the screws through the holes around the cpu and screwed them in. Not that easy to do on your own but would be much easier if you had someone to help you or if you were fitting this before placing the board in the PC case. The cooler does the job well and is much better than the cpu stock heat-sink and fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Quality Shines Through, 14 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this item based on a review here as you can't (at the time of writing) see the actual item displayed as all they're showing is the black box. Fear not this is a quality item and totally looks the part in my bathroom. I went for the black as this goes with the black and white theme in my bathroom and it looks like a piece of quality sitting there in all its shiny goodness.
The badger brush is top quality and the Mach 3 razor is simply a work of art. The blade in the razor was blunt for whatever reason, and I'm not sure why as it looks like a Mach 3 blade but apart from that there is no other word to use than quality. Good delivery from Amazon, well packaged in its display box and highly recommended for anyone who is looking for a shaving set which will enhance any bathroom. The seller should show the item unpacked as its too good to just show the box.
