4.0 out of 5 stars Works well and protects phone, 21 Jun 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This works quite well and protects the screen on the phone. Application is fairly straightforward as long as your phone's screen is clean, as any dust will get trapped under the protector. There is a cleaning cloth provided, as well as clear instructions. Not bad value for money either.

4.0 out of 5 stars A reasonable pocket workbook for CBT, 21 Jun 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The little CBT workbook is precisely that. It's more compact that most books so can be taken with you easily, but it's not pocketable. It isn't overly indepth, so should be easy to dip into without feeling like you have to spend too much time learning all the background theory. It's quite practical and easily accessible, letting you get on with the worksheets in the book, and they suggest you spend some time over each one, before moving onto the next bit to get the best out of it. I think it's a book I'll be happy to go back to, as continued practise is very important for the effects to have a positive impact.

4.0 out of 5 stars My kid loves this book., 15 Mar 2012
This review is from: The Book Of...How? (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My 5 year old kid loves being read this book, and it always fascinates him even if we've recently read it. It's a book that you can regularly return to the re-learn new facts. It's got good drawings and explanations and is full of amazing and fun facts. I'd highly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny moments, good extras, 25 Nov 2011
This review is from: Trollied - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The series is spread over 2 DVDs, with 8 episodes in total. There's a good range of extras on the DVD. The best bits for me were the extras that were done in the style of video diary, as the characters / actors were quite amusing to watch behind the scenes. However there were only 2 video diaries. The series is quite funny overall, with an almost compelling love story thrown in. But it's not the Office. It's kind of strained, like they're trying too hard to be funny, or awkward. Save your money and watch it on TV when it's repeated.


Samsung 4GB SDHC PLUS High Speed memory card Class 6
Samsung 4GB SDHC PLUS High Speed memory card Class 6

5.0 out of 5 stars Best memory card there is (Almost), 15 Sep 2011
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I use Samsung plus memory cards almost all the time now, they are fast, extremely reliable (never had a problem), tough, and I have been known to mistreat memory cards (hand another brand die on me the other week!). The only reason I say that this is almost the best, is that Samsung has now released Class 10 memory cards that are even faster: Samsung 8GB Class 10 SDHC Extreme Speed Card and they look even cooler with a black design. The Samsung cards are fast, tough, and work with every camera (assuming your camera supports SDHC), and are fast enough for Full HD video, and high speed continuous shooting.

4.0 out of 5 stars SO powerful - industrial strength vacuum cleaner..., 19 May 2011
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Wow - this vacuum clean is impressive - the vacuum is SO powerful it literally pulls the lino off the bathroom floor, even though it was SEALED down! If you want a powerful vacuum cleaner this is ridiculously powerful. The end of it unfortunately broke and couldn't be easily fixed, but we have managed to find a replacement. It can be used to clean floors, and seems extremely sturdy (apart from the end), and the vacuum includes another floor thingy for when you want to vacuum up wet stuff. Really really impressed overall and it's great value for money. The large paper bag inside seems like a tardis, it's got an infinite amount of space in it, it's like some kind of black hole! Except Doctor Who isn't anywhere in sight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice but slightly intrusive..., 17 Feb 2011
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The leather case is good looking, it doesn't overly disguise the iPhone 4, and it looks good in the case. However, the surround of the screen is slightly too large, making the gap for the screen slightly too small, this means some apps (noticeably Angry Birds) are difficult to play / use and I then have to remove the cover to play this and use some of the other apps. I prefer this to some of the other iPhone 4 cases, as it suits the overall design very well. However the case doesn't child proof the phone / case, and small children can easily damage the case by bending it (not recommended!). It does not protect the screen from scratches, so another cover / screen guard is recommended for that. Great price and value for money is excellent considering the high cost of a lot of other iPhone cases!


Blackbox M10-RB ANR Active Noise Cancelling Headphone
Blackbox M10-RB ANR Active Noise Cancelling Headphone

3.0 out of 5 stars Cancels noise, but musically lacking., 29 Dec 2010
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It appears as though I'm the only person who doesn't like the sound of these headphones.

With the "Active Noise Reduction" (ANR) switched OFF, they sound average, quite quiet, and have acceptable bass, but slightly less than I prefer.

The headphones block out some sound due to the padding surrounding the ears. Although you can still hear people talking, however with music playing it's difficult to hear people talking.

With the ANR switched on, using an AAA battery, the sound volume is increased, and background noise is mostly removed, especially the lower bass tones, however speech is not completely blocked out and higher pitched voices can still be heard (with no music playing - but who uses headphones silently anyway!?). With music playing you can hardly hear any background noise at all - although I expect this will vary depending on how loud the music is that you're listening to.

On sound quality with ANR switched on, this boosts the volume, but seems to make the sound quite hollow, (boomy, echoey), and lacking bass. For the price I think these are much more expensive than I would be willing to pay for headphones, and feel that in-ear earphones provide much better sound quality (particularly bass response, even budget models such as the Creative Labs EP-630 Noise Isolating Earphones ' Black (Eco Packaging)), as well as very good noise cancellation (depending on how well they fit you). I wouldn't recommend these headphones to anyone who's a fan of bass.

The headphones also put out a lot of noise to external listeners - so I would imagine that these could be quite annoying for other passengers on trains/planes/buses etc. In-ear earphones in comparison are mostly silent to other people (again depending on the model).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent item, hours of fun..., 29 Dec 2010
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: LEGO City 7939: Cargo Train (Toy)
We gave this to our four year old for Christmas, unfortunately we didn't realise it needed batteries! (9 x AAA batteries) So we built it (this took about 3 hours, with him building the lego men, and me building nearly everything else), then he played with it for the next couple of days, and then when we got some batteries for it, he played with it again for another couple of days. He still wants to play with it now, the only problem being that I have to rebuild it fairly often, as some of the construction techniques for some of the trains is a little fragile.

The trains and truck look great, the crane / cargo lifter and mover is surprisingly realistic - we took him to see some real ones - and the colour and details are generally the same, although a different size obviously. The batteries (alkaline) that we have put in seem to last a decent amount of time, and haven't gone flat yet, and the remote control lets you control other trains as well. It has 7 speeds and a stop button - although the fastest speed often sends the train flying off the track when going round corners. I was surprised by how good this was, it includes a number of lego men, and there were a few spare parts in the end which is much better than there being slightly less than needed! Excellent product and recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Pewter" is not an accurate reflection of colour, at all., 3 Dec 2010
Bought the "Pewter" coloured shoes, as opposed to the Navy/Pewter, and the only difference as far as I can tell between the two is that the navy/pewter have blue strips of material, and the rest is blue/grey. The "Pewter" shoes, are the SAME COLOUR, but the blue strips of material are brown. The rest of the shoe is completely blue/grey like the navy/pewter shoes, and the colour is nothing like the brown shoes Amazon are showing on their website. The pictures are completely inaccurate, and if these weren't such a bargain I would send them back for a refund. (I already sent them back thinking they had sent the wrong ones)

Comfy shoes, firm soles, decent grip (obviously not great on ice), but seem like good trainers otherwise. See the picture I've uploaded for a more accurate representation of the colour of the trainers, compared to the brown pictures Amazon have used.
