2.0 out of 5 stars Works okay most the time, but with serious security problems, 20 Sept. 2015
When it works, it works well, but it's not particularly stable when extending the range of our Virgin Media Hub. Easy to set up either using the quick set up. Once we started using it we came across a few issues either - it would drop signal with no warning or it would ask for the admin password and try to log into the extender. The same occurred on two laptops, two iPads, and iPhone and a Samsung Note 3.

The second and more serious issue is to do with the default web configuration page. For simplicity the original firmware allows it to be accessed using tplinkextender.net however if it connects to the actual site on the web rather than the router then malware is downloaded (TP Link didn't think to buy and secure this domain) This is a major problem and I found it trying to visit the actual website even when I was configuring the extender.

You can prevent this issue by downloading new firmware here http://www.tp-link.com/en/download/TL-WA860RE_V1.html#Firmware (you'll need to unzip the file) then disconnecting your original wi-fi point from the net (keep it on - just disconnect the physical internet cable), then plugging in and configuring the extender as per instructions, accessing the extender on http://192.168.0.20/, and using the firmware upgrade on the extender's menu to install the new firmware. You can now reconnect the internet cable to your wi-fi point and safely use the extender.

To be honest, I don't know why the product wasn't recalled by TP-Link'. It's totally inexcusable to expose purchasers to this risk

Kitchen Confidential: Insider's Edition
Kitchen Confidential: Insider's Edition
by Anthony Bourdain
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A great edition of a classic book, 17 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a gift for somebody who doesn't have a Kindle. The book is as honest, direct and sweary as the man appears to be himself. If you've every worked in the field you'll recognise the life and the feelings, as such the original edition held my attention for beginning to end. This paper version goes further and is annotated on many pages bringing it up to date and noting the many things that Anthony feels he called wrong.

Brightly colored with a pull tab to make it easy to use, this is a good protective case for the 510 phone. It would be nice if it had a ring in the tab to attach it to things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent soap, 11 Sept. 2015

This review is from: ParentDRB-0754-ParentV3 (Sports)
This is the first time I've ordered the Almond having bought most the other scents and the unscented one. First of all, if you haven't used Dr. Bronner's soap go out and try one now. All of them are good general purpose soaps where a little goes a long way. If you like moisturising creamy soaps these are not for you, but if you like soaps that lather up well, can be used for everything, and leave you feeling very clean then these are fantastic.
On to the Almond one, it's very almondy (if you like marzipan you'll feel hungry every time you use it) it's also the thickest feeling of the Dr Bronner scents. It doesn' t seem to dry the skin as much as say the tea oil scent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice design - note that it is only decorated on one side, 11 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very attractive and elegant - nicely finished decoration'. Practical to use with a relatively wide handle. This is not a complaint, but it's worth noting (as it's not shown in the pictures) that one side is decorated and the other has the makers mark embossed into bare metal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, 5 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just bought these and tried with my Note 3 - worked well once I'd downloaded and set up the app. Android support is via a Lifesense app (oddly there seem to be two apps in the Play store)which still needs a bit of work and as others have said doesn't let you export data. Value for money (paid 30 plus delivery) excellent and a bit less than I expected to pay for a non app based product. I can't comment in accuracy as I don't have anything to compare it to.

Pros
-easy to use (just stand on it)
-attractive design
-family members get own profiles

Cons
-only weight displayed without app
-no integration or export to other apps

Update
After two sessions it stopped working with the app they recommended in the paperwork (no Bluetooth upload), but it works with the TRANSHEALTH app that's mentioned in the description.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, fun entertainment, 30 July 2015

This review is from: Crossy Road (App)
Uploaded this for my nephew and niece, but found myself playing it while waiting for a late train. Very colorful and addictive. Not much variation in gameplay, however the different characters and the effect some of them have on the environment is fun. Even noticed my mother-in-law having a quick go .

3.0 out of 5 stars Good feel, poor trigger and wire placement., 21 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the feels of this on my GH3 and it's more comfortable for video follow shots when you're at an event. However the trigger doesn't work reliably and the wire trails diagonally across the back of the camera so it turned into and expensive handle.

Fantastic rich complex liquorice flavor in an attractive bottle. We enjoyed it as a straight liqueur and didn't have any left to try cocktails.
