Hammerite 5092820 Kurust 250ml
Hammerite 5092820 Kurust 250ml
Price: £7.09

5.0 out of 5 stars Great job on my rusty chiminea, 22 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My large cast iron chiminea was looking a bit sad and sorry for itself have developed a nice winter rusty coat (its cover developed a hole to let all the rain in). This Kurust was quick and easy to apply although very watery as others have mentioned. On my large sized chiminea I used around half the pot and it probably took me around half an hour to paint the whole thing. From rusty relic I now have a brilliant burnished black-coloured ciminea which looks like new. I have some heat resistant paint to apply next but to be honest it looks just great as it is and seems to be resisting the rain nicely. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love my Sonos but it is oh so pricey, 22 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had Sonos for 11 years now and love the system. I have every type of connect amp and Sonos speaker. These are very neat and pretty good but if you want more of a fuller, richer, bass-ier sound, if you can afford the Play 3's I personally prefer them. I have installed these Play 1's above my kitchen cabinets and they are OK. The Sonos system itself is what really sells all these items. It just works straight out of the box brilliantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Similar look and feel to monster for a fraction of the price, 22 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is was it is and is reasonably priced compared to major brands such as monster. I am not an electrician so cant comment on whether it just looks like monster cable and is not a like-for-like spec but it works just fine for me.

A180BJ 50W Granite Effect Outdoor Rock Speaker
Offered by Motionperformance - Waxacar
Price: £29.95

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for the Price but low output, 22 Jun 2014
Bought these for the outside in the shrubbery by the patio. Connected to a Sonos Connect Amp using high quality speaker cable. They work OK but the output is not great. I have to ramp my Sonos volume up pretty high to get a suitably audible sound from them. They are OK however for the price which is pretty reasonable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Well-trusted brand but let down by repeated electrical failures and amazon and panasonic refusal to replace. DONT BUY!, 22 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this product as a long term user of Panasonic products. I have always trusted this brand to produce higher than average quality electrical goods and have always favoured the brand. I owned a previous Panasonic stainless steel microwave for over 10 years without any problem. I can only assume with this product Panasonic have lowered quality standards to cut costs or that this particularly one was a 'Friday afternoon special'. Let me explain: the produce worked fine for a few months. Then one morning coming down to warm my breakfast I found the unit completely 'dead'. No power at all. I checked the fuse on the plug and my sockets. All good. I first contacted Amazon who refused to replace it saying it was outside a 30 day return policy (I thought consumers were protected by a 12 months statutory warranty?!). I then contacted Panasonic UK who said they wouldn't replace it (nice!) but that I had to take it to the nearest Panasonic service centre. This was some distance from my house and with work there was no way I could make a special trip there. The service centre offered to collect but only if I paid £20. Great! I but a new product, it fails, I am now additionally out of pocket. Seemingly over a barrel I had no choice but to pay. The unit was supposedly repaired and returned in around 10 days. It has now worked OK for a few months but once again exactly the same symptom has reoccurred. I suspect that the service centre has fixed the symptom rather than the true cause. I am now in a dilemma. Do I throw another £20 at it as the unit is still well inside its 12 months warranty or do I just give it up as a bad job and look for another more reliable and supportive brand? "Buyer beware" as they say when not caveat emptor-ing. Come on Amazon. This product has not performed. Replace my product directly or negotiate with Panasonic to do so!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 28 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this to enable me to transfer files to and from my iPad. I can move images from an SD card and USB stick to the iPad but it will not recognise any of my 3 USB hard drives (all different makes) and I cannot move images back from the iPad to media and cannot move any other files such as documents at all. Verbatim support haven't been able to find a solution. Very disappointing.

A really nice sports shirt, nice and loose, not tight and clingy. I'm using mine in the gym and it's keeping me cool and wicks well. Thoroughly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars How disappointing Amazon!, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wouldn't stream or download. Not a problem with my devices as I am able to stream other films from Amazon without problem. This film constantly gave an error saying there was a problem with downloading and streaming it. I want my money back please Amazon. Not happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks far more elegant than the photo and the price suggests, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought a decanter at more than 5 times the cost of this one and was therefore really pleased when I open the box on this bargain of a decanter. It looks just as good as the expensive one, very elegant, and far nicer than the photo does it credit. A great buy and thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value - they did the job, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For less than £10 each how can you go wrong with this pair of cabin bags?! And for the money they really aren't bad at all. My wife and I used these as cabin bags on a long haul flight and they were just fine. If I'd had to bin them after I would have been happy but they are continuing to give good service on business trips. It's early days yet (a couple of months) so I can't comment on durability over a much longer period but overall I'm very pleased with this bargain.
