5.0 out of 5 stars Citizen Men's Eco-Drive Watch Cb0013-04A, 3 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When it arrived I took it from the box and immediately the hands whizzed round until it had set itself to the correct time. It is more accurate than the BBC DAB radio time signal, of course. I've only had it a few days but so far it does what exactly what a watch should do - tell the right time. It looks good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give me more, 8 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This 3D DVD made the whole experience come vividly alive. Sound and vision were sharp. I felt as though I was there moving about amongst the musicians who were playing often just for me. I did not mind the sensation of the violin bows occasionally coming out of the screen. And the Berlin Philharmoniker with Simon Rattle were enjoying themselves. I would really like to be able to buy more 3D music DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Samsung DVD Writer, 3 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this because ultrabook laptops do not have DVD drives. There was no problem with installation despite having in theory to plug into two USB slots which would have been impossible with my laptop. It worked with just one plugged in. It does exactly what I wanted: I was able to install software from DVDs. It is light but sturdy and therefor very portable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Green Guide Germany, 27 April 2012
Having read other reviews I feel I must write to add weight to what they have said. I've used the guides for 40 years but the latest versions are getting glossier in appearance but less interesting in content. I was nevertheless going to buy the latest Germany until I discovered that places are no longer ordered alphabetically. Please, Michelin, revert more to your old, unique style.

It's too early to give a review based on experience of usage. I have only just installed the printer on a colleague's premises.

Russell Hobbs 15082 Blue Illuminating Glass 1.7 Litre Kettle
This is a great improvement on the Krups kettle it replaced which went bang and ceased to work.
The blue light is both attractive and useful because it's easy to see that it is turned on. The lid opens without any difficulty for filling which the Krups didn't. As it is made of glass it's easy to see the water level and what is happening in the heating-up process. The interior is designed for easy cleaning; descaling with a recommended agent was effective.
It is simply designed with no unnecessary gimmicks and does exactly what I want it to - boils water for tea. Why pay more?

4.0 out of 5 stars Braun Syncro, 15 Feb 2005
The Syncro gives a good shave but I'm not sure that it is a lot better than any other at the price. The clean and charge seemed an awfully good idea when I purchased and it does clean the razor giving it a pleasant smell.
But - refills which are basically denaturised alcohol are expensive if you use the cleaning process as the manufacturer recommends at around 5 a month - with about 10 for new foil and cutter running costs are in the region of 70 a year. The cost might reduce if one could buy refills from Amazon but to date I have not been able to find them.
