5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Idea for data transfer on devices using the new Type-C USB, 19 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Kingston 32GB Micro Duo Type- C to USB3.1 Flash drive
The Type-C USB is designed along with other new standards, like USB 3.1 for faster Data speeds and USB Power Delivery over USB connections
On a connecting cable it has identical USB Type-C connectors at both ends unlike USB 2 and 3 with A & B connectors. It should at last be a welcome end of fiddling around getting the USB connection to fit into the socket first time.
Not many products yet, come with Type-C connectors but this Flash Drive with both the old and new connector on it will assist in data transfer by fitting either type,
The drive is physically tiny with a plastic protector over the Type-C fitting only which assists in removal from your device. Within the packaging there is also a tiny split key ring with a noose that would also assist in removal if your fingers are nimble enough to fit it.
Connected to a USB3 connection the nominal "up to" 15MB/s Write Speed achieved 11MB/s on a single 4 GB file and 5MB/s on a 2GB folder of small files.
Read speeds of about 50MB/s were achieved on both large and small files.
The Drive is formatted as FAT32 meaning files larger than 4GB will report as being too large for the destination file. If you want to copy files of this size you can format the drive as NTFS of course.
It would still be good if it was built to a larger scale but I really like the miniature engineering involved in this product,

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent learning and revision aid!, 15 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
CGP A-Level Psychology Exam Board: AQA - Complete Revision & Practice
This is the most comprehensive book on Psychology I have seen. It is well laid out into sections so that it can be dipped into without confusion.
Each topic is covered by a main section and its appropriate headings.
The headings often cover several pages on the wide ranging subject laid out clearly with diagrams and explanations using the correct terminology. Somehow the book is better than some self help books on Psychology as it factual and well presented. Words are highlighted to give impact and aid memory.
There are practice questions giving potential marks for knowledge and understanding. No answers at the back but advice on how to do well. Included also are psychological studies to reinforce memory and illustrate the topic.
I really like the humorous comments and illustrations after the questions that add an extra dimension. I have read certain topics and learned a lot about myself too.
My grandson is going to get this book as he is taking the very exam it covers in the academic year. I am certain this book will guide him to obtain a very good grade. It will also help him to understand himself as well as others.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Compatible with Windows 10 but can be resolved, 14 Aug. 2015
Not compatible with Windows 10 final release.
This is a 5 star product from Kaspersky but should be withdrawn now to avoid all the frustration I had trying to install it.
The only good news was that a download of kaspersky Internet Security 2015 did install correctly as a 30 day free trial and the serial number inside the 2014 package did upgrade it to 365 days.
Hope this information helps you.

GoSystem Auto Start Blow Torch
GoSystem Auto Start Blow Torch
Price: £25.44

5.0 out of 5 stars Efficient High Temperature Auto Start Blow Torch., 13 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The GoSystem Blow Torch uses a Butane Propane mixed gas cartridge to give higher temperatures for brazing as well as more normal DIY uses such as soft soldering, paint stripping or application of heat to loosen bolts or defrost pipes.
The cartridge screws on to the appliance and as for similar devices it is recommended to keep upright and this model has a plastic clip on stand to assist this and prevent it falling over.
Oddly the profile of the top fitting is different to the shape of the canister top and although fully tight it looks as though it should screw in further.
I have used similar models and it was only on this model that I read in the instructions that the gas cartridge should be removed after use and the canister will self seal. This may explain why when I have come to use them I always seemed to need a new cartridge as I generally leave it fitted.
After use and after it cooled down I checked in a bowl of soapy water and there was no evidence of bubbles but I will start removing the canister in future.
This model is easy to light with the piezo electric start button after opening the rotary valve slightly and after a warm up period this is adjusted to give an accurate pointed flame.
The item is supplied without a gas canister which are easily obtainable through DIY Stores. Two sizes of GoSystem Butane Propane are recommended the code number 2175 or a larger capacity 2350.

5.0 out of 5 stars Windows 10 Not Supported in 2014 but can be resolved..., 13 Aug. 2015
The Packaging does not list Windows 10 as being supported but as this was the 2014 version and before Windows 10 was announced it though it might be OK.
No online checks for compatibility flagged up any issues. During installation you are prompted to upgrade to the latest 2014 Version 14.0.1.4651 during installation which I did. All I got was constant messages to restart to continue the installation but no warnings/
On a fourth attempt I un-ticked the box to install the latest version and immediately got an error message that "The Current Operating System is Not Supported" Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit.
What worked for me though and much to my surprise.
I downloaded the Trial Version of Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 and installed it giving 30 days free use.
After restarting the PC and checking on the subscription status you can purchase a 2015 licence or enter the activation code if you have one..
I found that entering the code inside the 2014 package in the onscreen 2015 dialogue box for activation gave an "activation successful and 365 days until expiry and 2 spare licences running concurrently for other devices.
It is nice that it is resolved but there was no documentation on the Kaspersky Web Site or the Microsoft Compatibility Site saying this would work.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Tech Steam Iron from Bosch has a lot to offer., 10 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
BOSCH Sensixx’x DI90 Motor Steam Anti Shine Iron
I am a great fan of Bosch appliances as they are well made and functional. The Bosch Senixx’x Iron is quite heavy and robust and I like the combination of silver, black and red colours which gives it a modern look. The technology this iron uses is very up to date.
It comes with a small jug and a very comprehensive instruction book that is clearly illustrated and in English only. The iron has a flexible cable that is approximately 3 metres long which gives me room for manoeuvring as I am ironing. It easily covers the length of my ironing board with room to spare.
Filling the iron with water is easy and the filler cap shuts with a click so I know it is closed. The soleplate of the iron is metal and ceramic and can be stiff to iron with but I soon got used to it. The weight actually helps to make closer contact to the fabric to give an even surface for the steam to penetrate. You are also advised to air your ironing to dry off.
The temperature control has a number of settings with an indicator light that flashes when heating up and stays constant when at the right heat. The settings include the usual fabrics and the AntiShine that helps reduce the marks on dark clothing. There is an eco and maximum setting for the steam on the handle which automatically sets to eco when first switching on.
A Sensor Steam function light flashes when the iron is not gripped so the steam function is at rest. It is on continuously when in use. I liked this as it is saving the water in the iron hence you don’t have to keep refilling.
I always start ironing delicate fabrics first then increase the temperature as I go along. It is advisable with this iron as it takes a while to cool down. I am very impressed with the results of ironing pure cotton and linen without using the spray. You can also buy a Textile Protect soleplate cover for use on delicate fabrics at maximum temperature without damaging them.
The Bosch Senixx’x Iron has a lot to offer the person who takes pride and care in the ironing of their clothes making the chore easier and more effective.

AmazonBasics Apple Certified Lightning to USB Cable - 6 Feet (1.8 Meters) - White

5.0 out of 5 stars A happy compromise on paying a high price and wanting a quality cable .., 8 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Third Party Accessories for an Apple Product tend to get either a 5 star review or a 1 star review as this usually means they either work or they don't work. Some iPad or iPhone cables may be OK for charging but not work as a data cable which further complicates things.
The suppliers of the very cheap cables seem to leave any quality control check to the customer and are just happy to refund or exchange if they don't work.
Generally an AmazonBasics product is a happy compromise on paying a high price and wanting a quality cable compared to the always overpriced Apple supplied cables or adaptors.
This AmazonBasics Apple Certified Lightning to USB cable is longer than the one supplied by Apple and the cable diameter is about 3 mm compared to 2.5mm and slightly more rigid.
I am happy to report that this cable fully charged an iPad Air 2 and also backed up the Data to iTunes via a Windows PC so gets 5 Stars

4.0 out of 5 stars Compact enough to use when travelling., 7 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having used a nebuliser on and off over the last 15 years I found myself needing a new one. The beurer inhalator comes complete with all accessories needed to begin inhalation.
The instructions are very comprehensive and complete with diagrams, steps for safety and its use.
The nebuliser is compact, sturdy and the incoming air is through vents on the side. The tubing fits into the side and the switch is at the top which clicks when used. beurer recommend that the mask and atomiser unit be cleaned, disinfected and air dried before use.
On my first use I found the nebuliser quite noisy and it vibrated, fortunately it has rubber feet to keep it in place. In an effort to reduce the noise I placed it on a towel but the vibration made it move. My effort to reduce the noise is not to be recommended as it is quite heavy and can fall and cause some damage.
The atomiser works as expected and the saline solution, which I use personally, prescribed by the doctor, came through at a comfortable rate. There was some residual fluid left but that is expected. If you need to use the nebuliser several times a day you only need to clean the atomiser at the end of the day so it can dry naturally.
The filter is quite simply a form of sponge and is easy to change. The rate of change depends on how often it is used though after regular use every month is the advice given. There are twelve filters enclosed which I find very useful.
As a result of its size and weight it is easy to pack away. I can recommend it for its use and like any product that is guaranteed for three years it must be good. It also comes with a waterproof dustproof bag for storage. I can even take it on holiday as it doesn’t take up much space.
As a medical appliance the beurer nebuliser does what is expected of it and can be used with confidence!
