3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful, 8 July 2013
QUALITY: Cheap and cheerful. Good enough for wearing around the house.

SHORT LEG SIZE: My wife is regular length leg but these were about 3 inches (7.5 cm) short of her ankles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful, 8 July 2013
QUALITY: Cheap and cheerful. Good enough for me around the house, gardening or DIY jobs.

SIZE: Size is correct as stated. Do not order a size smaller than you would normally do as some customers have suggested. I now have 6 (medium) shirts that are too small for me (large). :(

1.0 out of 5 stars Not rain proof, 19 May 2013
I bought 8 of these a year ago and only 2 are still working. They fill up with water via the top solar panel, corrode, lights stop working and switches cease up with rust. Rubbish.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Heat Conductivity, 18 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Hard Anodised Cookware Set is certainly built to last. Sold, strong and heavy. So heavy that the larger pots require two hands (with gloves) to safely lift them when hot.

The heat conductivity is very poor when compared with much cheaper Cookware. For example, it takes about 10 minutes longer to boil water. As more gas/electric is used, more money is wasted. I've tried this set on both conventional gas fire hob and electric plate range hob with the same poor heating results.

Am going replace with a lighter, copper-bottom set. :)


2 Disc Wall Flush Light in Chrome
2 Disc Wall Flush Light in Chrome

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT quality lighting, 16 April 2013
This review is from: 2 Disc Wall Flush Light in Chrome
Purchased two of these wall lights.

In both cases the mounting brackets and backing plates were not aligned correctly during manufacture.

The mounting brackets were not attached centrally, were positioned at an angle and visible above the backing plates. One of the brackets was dented.

When the shades were attached they did not sit flush with the plates and could not be secured tightly and did not sit level.

The chrome backing plates were dented and scratched in two spots.

Bulbs not included.

The Dar Lighting Group web site boasts "quality lighting products" but I would dispute that claim.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Max Payne 1, 31 Jan. 2013
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Max Payne 3 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
To sum up:

1. too many cut scenes,
2. too many enemies,
3. too difficult in easy mode,
4. no puzzles to exercise the brain.

I got bored after a few hours and uninstalled it before the end of the game.
Not as good as Max Payne 1, but it was a cheap download at £15 so I'm not too annoyed. ;)


James Wellbeloved  Adult Turkey and Rice 2 kg
James Wellbeloved Adult Turkey and Rice 2 kg

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended, 31 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our cats love this stuff. It contains natural ingredients and supplements blended with rice, tomato, potato and maize with added omega-3 oils.

James Wellbeloved dry cat food was first recommended to us by a local RSPCA rescue centre as the kittens we adopted were already being fed on this. We've since tried other cheaper dry foods, as often found in supermarkets, but our female cats sometimes develop cystitis; through a process of elimination we think the infection is down to cheaper dry food and have now have gone back to James Wellbeloved.

5.0 out of 5 stars The product itself is fine... but be warned!, 31 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product itself is fine. But be warned that some sellers (e.g. MyMemory) do not accept non-faulty memory modules as returned goods. Do not purchase from a seller unless you are 100% certain the memory is compatible. I recommend buying memory modules direct from the manufacturer (e.g. Crucial UK), but even then it is only guaranteed to be compatible with your computer and not with other memory modules that you have already fitted.
