5.0 out of 5 stars Good all rounder, 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a professional designer and bought this to replace a 2004 tower G5. How times have changed. The speed is impressive and I can have several applications open at once without suffering. The shiny screen doesn't bother me but I know some people have issues with it. Only 2 niggles, the USB slots are too close together so some devices can only be attached with an extension cable and it is a bit heavy to carry around.
I use VMware Fusion so that I can use it as a PC simultaneously when I need to. Yes, Apples are expensive but the design and build quality is far superior to any PC I have ever used.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oversized and an awful smell, 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these for a 15 inch MacBook Pro. It was far too baggy. It also had a horrible smell. It is cheap and cheerful and does the job after a fashion. You get what you pay for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good straightener, expensive maintenance, 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Awkward to use but does a good job with or without the conditioning capsules. Great result with the capsules but the downside is the capsules are practically impossible to get hold of, nearly always out of stock everywhere, and are hellishly expensive. The cost of replacing them is as much as the straightener itself. Not good value. Having said that, the results from this straightener is much better than my other ordinary ones. I have Afro hair and when a professional hairdresser used them on my natural hair, the straight effect lasted several days.

3.0 out of 5 stars Made minimal difference, 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Doesn't do what it says on the tin. Has only had minimal effect on my nails, no more than strengtheners of much lower price. Has tendency to peel after a day or so. Not worth the expense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat design, brilliant value, 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tripod is very lightweight but sturdy and feels good quality. It does the job very well and is an excellent choice for amateurs and those taking their photography to another level. The instructions however are useless and it is impossible to work out how to hang the camera below. I had to do an internet search until I found an obscure video uploaded by a user who demonstrated how to do it. The ball head takes some getting used to also.

I was sceptical about what the quality would be like for the price but it is excellent value as it is a quality product.


OXO Good Grips Oven Thermometer

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful but flawed, 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very attractive visual design but very poorly designed fitting attachment. It is a major pain to fit to oven shelves and even more of a pain to remove. It also discolours quickly and is impossible to clean. The see-through feature is very useful and it definitely seems to give more accurate temperature readings than the built-in oven indicator. Overall I am pleased with my purchase but OXO should really go back to the drawing board for some of it's features, particularly considering the price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very flimsy, 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This replaced a board which I lost some years ago. My old board was firm and stable. This one is flimsy cardboard which barely stays flat. It does the job but I don't consider it good value for the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sharp and strong, 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality shears that seem to cut through everything easily. Nice solid feel. It takes a bit of getting used to the handles as I'm more used to conventional scissor handles. These make feel like I'm about to prune the roses.

This toothbrush does the job as well as the more expensive version. The battery charge lasts well. I haven't had it long enough to to assess it's durability but the more expensive model that I had previously stopped working just after the guarantee ran out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very neat solution, 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Neat design, good size and sticks perfectly. Best of all rust free. I would recommend this to any one who does not want to drill into tiling. Once in place it hasn't slipped or fallen.
