Nero 2016 Platinum (PC)
Nero 2016 Platinum (PC)
Price: £52.15

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for both novices and upgraders., 24 Dec. 2015
This review is from: Nero 2016 Platinum (PC) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Everything can probably be found for free elsewhere but it is nice to have it all together. I bought the full version of Nero a few years ago but they did jot provide an upgrade to the later operating systems. A bit annoying when you pay £40+ for software that becomes obsolete when you upgrade the operating system. For that reason they lose a star because I am sure the same will happen with this. However it is still great to have everything together. Where you can burn cd's, dvd's, organise your photos, make movies, recovers damaged files. It also includes video tutorials. A great package for both novices and upgraders alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun!!!, 24 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Entertains all ages. At our house the ages were 3,12,33 and 58. All had fun with it. Good power. The bullets are like a foam rubber with a bit of hard plastic on the end. It would have to be fired very close at someones skin to cause any pain (even then only a slight sting). Good range and great fun firing at plastic bottles. The expert (12 year old) rated it favourably with Nerf (whoever they are). Lost a star because it does occasionally jam and is a pain to sort out (mainly because the bullets are soft). The 3 year old (actually not 3 until next month) loved it. We didn't put the bullets in and someone had to set it for him, but it still makes a good noise when fired. It only fires one at a time so we all got sick of resetting it for him!


FUTURO 09039ENT Adjustable Sport Knee Support
FUTURO 09039ENT Adjustable Sport Knee Support
Price: £13.94

4.0 out of 5 stars Make sure you get the right size., 24 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This support is designed for knee sizes between 13.5"-17.5". There are three adjustable velcro straps. Nice and warm which eases the aches and pains. I did get some bunching at the back of the knee and it does ride up when running. However for walking it was comfortable and did support the knee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable and a great sound., 4 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First impressions are very good. Designed for use with IPOD. I have also enjoyed using with IPAD air. The wire at the side can control volume and start/stop. However to test these properly I had to use a better source. Good headphones, and these are good, need to be tested with decent equipment. Tested with my old Fiio X3 with wav files. The soundstage is very good, clear and crisp. The amount of detail was good. The headphones are light and just fit around the ears (but only just!). Probably not enough bass for some, fine for me. Love 60's and 70's, prog rock and great pop from all ages. Going to run these in for a while, usually improves the sound. I have used Sennheiser (momentum), Koss heavy things, Bose. Loved my HD598's for ages and Momentums but these are lighter and the sound is at least as good. I love these headphones because they are comfortable, a great sound, closed back, around ears and reasonably priced. I have tried headphones at three times the price of these and not been as impressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice pair of earrings., 21 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nice big red stone, maybe a little chunky for me but fairly light. An everyday pair. Not pretty enough for special occasions. Easy to put in, not fiddly. More a crimson than a deep red. (Review by Mrs O'Boogie).

3.0 out of 5 stars But it was easy to set up, 6 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Ok I may not know what I am doing, and this router is probably way over the top for ordinary domestic use (as others have said). But it was easy to set up. Plugged into my virgin superhub (recently upgraded to up to 150) and away we go. Wifi connection in the next room was good, around 40. Wifi connection in the room beyond was terrible, mainly non existant. Yet I could reconnect to the hub directly and get a speed of 7 or so. Others claim it is faster with the Linskys and wifi has a bigger range, I don't agree. Maybe I have done something wrong (can't see how because the set up is easy). Or maybe there is something wrong with the router? I have tried moving the antennae but makes no difference. Disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as robust as claimed but good design., 6 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First impressions, appears flimsy. However once two loads are on it appears stable enough. Good height, about 6 foot. I like the idea that you have the choice of having the shelves up or not. If all your washing is small stuff you have all the shelves up. If however you have some shirts you put the top shelf down. If you have a dressing gown you put two shelves down. Easily done, just unclip one side (you don't need to take it off completely). Small wheels on the bottom allows relocation. Once full it does appear flimsy when you try to move it. A load of towels I added to it did show the flimsiness of it, especially when I tried to move it. However it never seemed in danger of falling over. Folds flat but storage could be a problem, after all it is 6 foot tall. I don't agree with 'up to five wash loads'. Up to half that at best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks exactly like the picture, 3 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks exactly like the picture. Pleased with it. I ordered the Large as that is the normal size I take. However I would say it is medium+. Keeping it though because it looks good. Reasonably thick for winter wearing. I bought the blue as well, same comments apply.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking shoe but size 10, 3 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice looking shoe but size 10? No way. I normally wear size 9 or 9.5. Ordered 10 to be sure. Still too tight. It said UK 10 on the shoe so should have have been fine. Shame because they look good quality.

Philips Sonicare HX9171/20 FlexCare Electric Toothbrush with Sanitiser - Platinum
Price: £103.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent toothbrush, 31 Oct. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Better than any Braun (and a lot more expensive). This is the third Sonicare I have tried and is up to the superb quality of the others. Not worth upgrading if you already have one. Worth upgrading if you have the Braun. The price has already halved since introduction. The rrp of £225 is ridiculous. This mdel has the shaped head which allows easier access to back teeth. Don't see the point of the sanitiser. Takes up too much space anyway! Go for the model without sanitiser and you will get a great toothbrush at a more reasonable price.
