5.0 out of 5 stars Very sturdy, well built, 11 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A superb little gadget! Very sturdy, well built, easy to use once you read the instructions, and a huge range of different coffees and teas to try. I've already bought 4 different types to try and, after setting the machine up, went through three cups in one evening! Great tasting, overall, and not bad value for the packs. One word of warning, make sure you have a 1 litre beaker to do the setup. There isn't one provided and the usual household measuring jugs are just too wide! Could also do with a rethink on the way the water container reattaches as you often end up with spillage. However, still the best coffee machine I've owned bar none. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars it can really suck you in, 11 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I ordered this off Vine purely out of curiosity, not really expecting much, but it's surprisingly, curiously, entertaining! A budget price and a large amount of content overcomes the occasional rudimentary graphics. The cabs are really well modelled but the landscapes are fairly simplistic. You have to be in the right mood for it but, when you are, it can really suck you in! If you're the type that occasionally obeys the traffic rules in GTA, you'll get a similarly odd kick out of this!

What a joy! The hats are back and as infuriatingly catchy as ever. It's like the last 3 decades didn't happen, in a very good way. Love it!

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A fun little game but far too limited by its lack of variety and content. What is certainly enough to while away a few hours, at least once you figure out the UI on your own (there's no help from the game) and everything works well once you're up an running, but there are just too few features to add to the park which is a shame as, what is here, works really well. The quests help eek out a few more hours but it feels like an opportunity missed. Hopefully a sequel will come along and open up what has the potential to be a really good, modern interpretation of Bullfrog's Theme Park. Has it been more expensive, it would be a 2 or 3 star game but the budget price earns it an extra one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise!, 27 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I ordered this off of Vine purely on a whim as a fan of flight sims generally, though I haven't played a WW1 game since Wings on the Amiga. I have to say, it came as a really pleasant surprise. Excellent flight model (though not at all for the arcade player), good mission structure, exciting close combat and superb graphics to boot. Unfortunately, I can't run it in ultra detail without flick book level frame rates, but that's more the age of my hardware. Highly recommended for sim enthusiasts, but definitely not if you want an arcade experience.


Wahl Limited Edition Design Hair Clipper and Trimmer Gift Set

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well made and powerful clippers., 27 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
THere's a bit of debate in my household over these. Personally, I love them. Quiet, smooth and powerful so they never get bogged down where many other brand's products can come to a grinding halt. My wife, on the other hand, does complain that they produce a lot of vibration when I can persuade her to clip my hair so if you're sensitive to such vibrations and find them unpleasant, it may be worth avoiding. But, for me, these are easily the best clippers I've owned yet. just a shame they aren't cordless. As for the limited edition London edition, a bit of a gimmick really. A biscuit tin picture of Big Ben and a bus! Certainly wouldn't go out of my way to find one over the standard model unless you're Austin Powers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat and simple charger., 27 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Thankfully, I haven't had cause to use the charger yet but the manual is simple and the actual charger self explanatory. All leads are included and, unlike chargers I've used of old, it's a very neat, small footprint in an already cluttered garage! Here's hoping that owning a charger means I never have to use it as I've had plenty of times in the past to regret not getting one before this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still my choice of Mac anti virus, 27 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've used Kaspersky, now, for 3 years and am more than happy to carry on with it. It's unobtrusive, has no obvious performance hit, a very intuitive interface in the main window and receives constant updates over the 'net. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I've ever read....really., 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I know words like that get bandied about all too often but this really is as good as stated. It stumbles a little to get going but once it reaches Franz's experiences in North Africa and beyond you simply won't want to stop reading. A truly fascinating insight into the "enemy" and the reality of life in the Luftwaffe written with frankness and self deprecation. Although the book centres around the meeting of Franz and Charlie both above Germany, and later in life, it's really mainly Franz's story. And I don't mind admitting to welling up a bit at the end. Two extraordinary men in a book full of extraordinary men. Will change your Hollywood inspired black and white view of the War In Europe and give some appreciation of the Luftwaffe pilots. Brave men, unfortunately led by madmen and psychopaths.

Ordered this through Vine for my wife as she wanted to try it and she's more than happy with it. Does more or less what is described.
