iRobot ROOMBA 880 Vacuum Cleaning Robot

Offered by The Wright Buy Ltd
Price: £529.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Useful Household Gadget Ever, 25 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product has transformed my life. It is working away while I do other things. It is better than having a cleaner - it doesn't answer back and doesn't do the crossword in working time. It works best when the floor in a room is clear, so perhaps less beneficial for households where there is a lot of clutter, but I think it is impressive and I recommend it without hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Gardening Gloves I have Ever Used, 17 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I already have a pair of these gloves, and I bought another pair for my daughter-in-law. They are very comfortable and durable. Although there is slight colour transfer to the hands in early wearings, this soon stops. They are expensive, but excellent value for money compared to cheaper gloves which wear out quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Would Have Paid More, 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The low price point made me apprehensive about this purchase, but I think the keyboard and mouse are excellent, and superior to those which come as standard with a desktop computer. I recommend this product without hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous insight into European history through the story of one family, 13 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been recommending this book to all my friends since I read it. It provides a fascinating insight into fin de siecle Paris and early 20th century Vienna while exploring the lives of members of the Ephrussi family. The plight of the Jews and their treatment at the hands of the Nazis suddenly becomes personal, because you feel you know these people. You also get an insight into the factors that lead to their persecution.

It's mesmerising to learn of the provenance of some of the world's most famous art works, while the constant presence of the collection of netsuke is a leitmotif that binds everything together. This books crosses generations and continents. It is an easy read, but also a work of profound content. The author has managed to balance the emotions aroused learning about his forebearers with a detachment that analyses the factors that lead to their downfall. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in art, 19th and 20th century history or just enjoys family sagas.
