4.0 out of 5 stars Nice bright diffused light, but pricey, 20 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very good, feels high quality and dense on the hand.
Normal fitting, and a nice powerful comparable to 60W diffused even light with a slight warmth.
Good illumination and apparently it will last ages so very happy.

Ok, it's not as nice or even as a normal bulb, but LED are getting better.
It is pretty hot though.

Negative is that it is £12 for ONE BULB!!! That's expensive, long life or no long life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent effective, 25 Aug. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is absolutely brilliant!
For the benefit of those who are pondering whether to treat themselves to a Steam Mop for whatever reason and are oohing and aahing as whether to take the plunge or not, I say go for it, as you will not be disappointed!

It's very well made, sturdy and feels good in the hands.
This is very versatile and can be used to clean many things.
I used it to clean the Tiled floor and a Lino/Vinyl floor and I must say it worked wonderfully.
Easy to assemble, heats up very quickly and easy to use as a mop with the ball swivel head enabling it to clean awkward corners effectively.
The Steam Mop head made my floors shine, so much cleaner visibly than what I have with the normal mop, and without any back and arm strain,

The whole point of getting this is for the versatility, the ease of use and the effective cleaning. it suited my old disabled Mum who I then gave it to and it's made mopping her tiled floors so easy and painless.

Cleaning can be a chore, it's not difficult, but it's tedious as with all such things.

All in all, if you feel the need to invest in a steam mop and cannot decide and this is in your budget, go for it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent jet wash with good attachments, works wonderfully with some niggles., 24 Aug. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a Jet Washer and is very useful!

I unpacked this and without even reading the instructions put it together.
Easy and common sense.

I did look at the instructions afterwards and saw that they were clear pictured and easy to follow!
It comes with a few removable 'heads':

A Turbo one
Brush
Detergent canister.
The standard one is also present which gives a moderate amount of jet wash.

The way this works is as follows:

i) Assemble the device and jet wash handle.

ii) Push in hose pipe onto nozzle at rear of the device and then push hard to make sure it is secure.

iii) Plug in jet wash handle and pipe into front of device.

iv) Switch it on.

v) Turn tap on.

vi) Squeeze the handle and spray away.

You can change the head by adding the detergent canister - which is a plastic transparent(ish) bottle. You can fill this with Wax, soap, fairy liquid or whatever you wish.

Squeezing the handle and pointing the nozzle mixes the wax or whatever with the jet - intermittently.

You can then take the head and canister off and add the Brush to spray and scrub.

You can then remove this and add the Turbo head which forces a lot of water into a thin edged spray which is very sharp and almost cuts!

I tried it out by washing some bikes and it was almost perfect.

I had a few problems:

i) The hose head attachment which is quite old kept on falling off where it was attached to the hose nozzle at the rear of the device.
I pushed it in a few times hard to make sure it was secure.
This may have been a problem with my hose and not the Vax device though.

ii) The above problem may have contributed to the fact that squeezing the handle releases the jet as required BUT after say 10 seconds the flow dwindles for say 8 seconds, seemingly recharges ((as the handle and device vibrate a bit making me think that it's merely chaging up the water jets))
This was annoying as washing took longer.

The Tap needs to be opened as fully as possible.

These problems aside, the Vax was easy to set up, easy to use and very effective. I washed bikes, but it would be very effective to wash cars, motorcycles, windows, patios or anything else.
The heads are useful and the jet is powerful, the Turbo head is very powerful!
It's well made, everything is well made enough and I didn't expect an industrial sized and made device at all.
It may be plastic, but what isn't these days?

It's not heavy, but isn't lightweight neither.
Easy to carry and the attachments slot in easily for storage.

I've never used another Jet Washer, others mention Karcher and I'm sure those are good, but if you can pick this up for a good price and want a handy easy to set up, use and store Jet Washer to clean anything, then go for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, helping my dad who has COPD, 19 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been buying these for my dad who has COPD.
It seems to be working, he has less fluid and phlegm in his lungs now after years of getting worse!!!
This combined with the Delonghi air purifier means a better quality of life for my father.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun., 10 Aug. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nice toy for my 5 year old Nephew.
He loves it, as the car is quick and exciting and does all sorts of tricks and easy to use with the trigger control.
It charges up and lasts about half an hour.
It will break with some normal use though as the bumps and hits on the skirting boards will break it.

All in all, great fun remote control car for children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but expensive and best as a wet shaver, 10 Aug. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a wet dry shaver, so you can soften the beard/stubble.
It also has 5 blades.

Not heavy so comfortable to hold and doesn't get awkward.
Design is ergonomic and well contoured. Easy to hold and to use.
Build quality is good, plastic but good and lightweight enough.

Two settings, one which keeps the speed constant and the other which adjusts according to contour of the face.

I got this free in the Vine programme to use and review and I must say it is very good.
As a wet shaver it cuts shaves clean even on my heavy 4 day stubble the motor works harder depending.

BUT, is it worth the price? That depends, I use a Gillette Mach III type and love it, lasts ages, cheap, sharp and accurate.
This is bulkier and expensive but cuts almost as close quickly.

It is recommended that you use it as a WET razor. Apply foam or gel and off you go, as it cuts close. Too close for a dry shaver type, though that's me, as my skin is sensitive!

So overall, as an electric dry shaver, for my sensitive face, not sure, as a wet one, it is excellent and cuts close and quickly!

Cleaning is easy, you can use the included system (which I haven't used) but for me a rinse and a used tooth brush to scrub for a few seconds (it's waterproof).

Battery life - used it three times on one charge still with most charge left on the indicator. So very good.

Overall, excellent but expensive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great bag, 26 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Manfrotto Camera bag is superb!
Firstly, it has the Manfrotto logo which is pretty cool looking and Manfrotto are pretty well known and liked in the Tripod field, so it was unusual to see them making camera bags.

I was very pleasantly surprised because the bag in wonderfully built. Well secured and reinforced and oozes quality.
It has a main pull out compartment which contains sections for the camera and lenses.
Another large section for accessories at the top opened by a zip which is parallel to another large zipped comaprtment for other stuff - each of these has smaller slotted and zipped compartments so you can fit in your Film, flash and accessories.
And each of these is reinforced and well padded protecting everything from top, read and bottom.
One compartment is padded and large enough for an iPad or Macbook Air 11" size.

My one has a Contax G2 and 3 lenses in the main - and the G2 Rangefinder (Leica sized) has a lens attached.
This could easily hold a DSLR and lenses and the additional compartments could be used to store lenses too.

The straps are padded very comfortable and slide on one's back nicely like a well made and comfortable ruck sack.
It has additional carrying loops and loops for tripod and a rain cover.
It has a chest strap too but no waist strap.

All in all superbly built, well made, comfortable, padded versatile and looks good!

Downsides?
No waist strap, so if weighed down and trekking in rough terrain it may slide around.
