Fine while it lasted but buttons stopped working long before they should have done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but bigger than expected, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wellgo 1/2" Junior Pedals For Kids
To quote another reviewer "They are actually a bit larger than I was expecting". Otherwise perfectly fine and fitted easily for a Dawes Blowfish 14"

2.0 out of 5 stars Keeps disconnecting and range is poor, 13 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It never really likes to connect and is awkward to get it to work properly. Much prefer the netgear WNDA3100 which works better. This has been the same across three different makes of router.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for daily cycling, 13 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The top keeps me really comfortable and dries really quickly whether it's from sweat or on the washing line. Only problem is it's now too big as I've shrunk with the exercise.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much better than Gilette, 31 Aug. 2012
If you want a shaving cream that means your face doesn't hurt before you apply moisturiser then this is it. I have a theory that Gilette et al want to sell "soothing balm" etc so are actually interested in applying pain to my face but that remains just an unproven theory.

3.0 out of 5 stars Double Sided, 19 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The detail on the map is great but it is double sided which means you can't put it up on a wall.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't even think about buying this (unless you like wasting money), 1 Dec. 2011
This sander is appalling badly designed and made. The build quality is poor and the sanding pad is connected by little plastic connections which broke just before the sander finally went bang. The detachable front pad didn't last for more than an hour before broken and then completely useless. I wished I used it more when I first had it, rather than waiting a year, as then I could have sent it back. I've now got a Bosch sander and it is much better, and for a better price Bosch PSM 160 A Multi-Sander.

I'm sure other Black & Decker products can't be this bad but I am not prepared to take the chance with them after wasting my money on this product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can I believe anything in this book?, 29 April 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London: The Biography (Paperback)
Within the first twenty pages I found two errors that left me feeling that no fact in this book had been properly researched. On page 18 it states that the London Stone is within the Bank Of China when it's actually on the wall of the Oversea China Banking Corporation. The Bank of China ison the other side of the road. It also states that the London Wall "passes through the headquarters of a company named Equitas", strange since Equitas's headquarters have always been on St. Mary Axe.
After these mistakes I couldn't believe anything that was written, and this was particularly annoying given the rambling way it is written with no real structure. I'm only about a third of the way through it after two and a half years.
