Philips Outdoor Wall Light Anthracite Grey ECO Lamp

It's very hard to judge the quality of this item as even Philips own pictures don't do it justice. The base plate and lamp cover are made from nicely moulded plastic and the "Anthracite Grey" top cover seems to be cast in Aluminium alloy with a very nice Matt finish. Easy to mount and wire up. I would have given it five stars but the screws that hold the covers on are very small and fiddly and you'll have trouble fitting the covers with the supplied Torx driver. Luckily the screws are dual Slotted/Torx so you can use a standard screwdriver. Note to Philips: use bigger screws for the covers next time!


Bissell Cleanview Quickwash Carpet Cleaner

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems pretty good, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far so good. We had a small VAX carpet cleaner but the water reservoir was a pain to use and the catch finally broke. The Bissell unit seems to be better made, is quieter and has removed more dirt than the VAX managed. At just under £80 this was 2/3 the price on the high street so a good buy.

Update: the unit I received is not exactly the same as the one in the picture. But this is probably a good thing as the vendor seem to have sent me the very latest model which is slightly more compact (and nicer looking!) . The model description on my box is "Cleanview Compact Performance" if this is of any help to others. It looks exactly like the "Cleanview Reach" but without the extra hose and spot brush. Still working well though which is the main thing!

Update 2: we've used this half a dozen times now since buying it and it's proving to be a very good machine!

Been using this stuff for years for minor cuts but can be hard to find in high street chemists. This was a good buy though and free postage.

5.0 out of 5 stars This stuff really works, 17 Jun 2014

This review is from: Feliway Diffuser Pack 48ml (Misc.)
Following a house move we had urination problems near the front door, no, not me, the Cat! We tried the the Feliway diffuser for a couple of months and it solved the problem! The only problem you may have is if you need to use it for an extended period - it could work out expensive. Luckily for us a few months use solved the problem.

Engaging and well written. Have already bought the second book in this series. My own criteria for how good a book is how long it takes me to read it and I zoomed through this one in a couple of days which is quick for me.

I no longer work in a production environment but this seems as good a quality as anything else I've used and paid a lot more for. This is a very compact and useful set of tools in a well made case. Amazons price was 2/3 the cost of other vendors at the time so was a particularly good deal.

A little big bigger than I expected when it arrived but this is a good thing as it makes it easier to read at my age! Seems pretty good quality for the price and the strap is very comfortable if a little chunky. Would I buy it again? Yes.

I've bought other makes before and now wish I'd bought Makita in the first place judging by this model. Very fast charging and a powerful drill for it's size.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better, 28 Feb 2014

It's not completely rubbish but it's not particularly well made either. Not too much wrong with the design or materials given the price point it's just been badly assembled for the most part. If you get a well put together one it should be fine, if not expect to have to fettle it a bit.

A nicely written and well illustrated book. I should give it five stars but must reserve some judgement as I'm a novice model boat builder. All in all though it seems a pretty comprehensive book for those starting out in the hobby.
