Does not seem to work properly or be complete. Cannot recommend it. Wish there was a way to totally remove it from my Kindle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Omron M3 blood pressure monitoring kit, 16 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this blood pressure monitoring kit following a myocardial infarction and a desire to be able to ensure my blood pressure kept to the desired reduced level. Machine is easy to use in practice and supplied cuff will fit all but very large upper arm. Upper arm measurements are considered better than wrist measurements for accuracy, although wrist versions are probably suitable for non specific medical reasons.
The machine is easy to use, wrap cuff around upper arm about 1-2cm above elbow. Plug into side of machine and switch on. 2 people can record and store their blood pressure using the switch on the front. (Others can measure but not store the values). Pressing a button starts the measurement and a green light will confirm that the cuff is correctly located and tightened. A flashing icon indicates that the heart rate is being measured. The results are clearly displayed and.automatically stored.
Would recommend this machine with the proviso above.

4.0 out of 5 stars This would be better placed near the front, 3 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This icecream maker arrived promptly and was well packaged. Have now used it a few times. This review is based on the ice creams made with it. All have been of the custard type.
In use it is fairly straightforward, with a digital control panel at the front and the churner at the back. The motor unit lifts off to access the churning can and paddle. In use you need to ensure the spindle lines up with the slot in the paddle before it will fit.
The ice cream maker has a nominal capacity of 1.5L. In practice you can add about half this amount to the can. The volume increases during churning. Ingredients such as fruit and chocolate chips can be added through a small opening near the back. This would be better placed near the front. The freezing unit works well and rapidly cools. The timer defaults to a maximum of 60minutes. In practice I have found that 50minutes is often enough. A plastic scoop is provided. Does not look strong enough to be of much use once ice cream has hardened in freezer.
Overall a useful machine.

This is supposed to be the third book in the series. However despite cover, contents are actually book 1. Have enjoyed first two books; therefore had hoped for another the same.

Does not really get anywhere. Just a series of almost unrelated incidents. No apparent link to first chapter.
Disappointing. Glad it was free.

Note that this book contains a short story and a load of first parts of novels by Wendy Cartmell. The complete story only occupies about a quarter of the book. Complete story is fine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Philips Sonicare HealthyWhite toothbrush, 29 July 2014
I bought this toothbrush as a replacement for a Braun Oral-B Triumph Professional toothbrush about 5 years old where the on-off switch was failing. This model was selected on the recommendation of my dentist and I have now been using it for about a fortnight.
Good points:- It seems to be an efficient toothbrush, leaving a clean feel to the teeth (only used standard head so far). It appears to be well constructed. It comes with a sturdy travel case which will hold the brush and two heads, but not the charger. It is claimed to last up to 3 weeks, which should be more than adequate for most travelling (the Oral-B lasted just a week)

Poor points:- The signal to change area of teeth after 30 secs is much less distinct the the Oral-B. The toothbrush stops after the 2 minutes. There is no separate second counter, only the slight change in tone after 30 seconds. Also there is a single switch for off-on and functionality, so if you want to finish off any area, you have to switch on again, then switch off with 3 presses of the switch.

It is important to use the head angled as directed else the plastic parts will rattle against the teeth.

Overall t seems to be a highly efficient and effective toothbrush, which would be much better if it had controls more like the Braun Oral-B
