4.0 out of 5 stars Much more robust and looks a hell of a lot better than the old bulbs, 19 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Equivalent to the old 40 watt bulb. Much more robust and looks a hell of a lot better than the old bulbs. Costs a lot more too, hence the loss of one star. Claims to last for 20000 hours. Which with 2.7hrs use a day is twenty years. If true then probably is value for money. It is still a lot to fork out for one bulb. Good light. I would say a brighter light than the old 40 watt bulb it replaced. After being on an hour there is very little heat coming off the bulb. You can get hold of it without any problem. You would have burnt your hand on the old bulb. There is a saving of 85% on energy costs according to the packet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed to give this one star, 19 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Endless River (Audio CD)
Very disappointed to give this one star. I love Pink Floyd. Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall. Four of my top ten albums of all time (and I have been listening to music for over fifty years). For me Floyd carried on where the Beatles left off with their creativity and innovation. Unfortunately, unlike the Beatles, Floyd carried on after one of the key players left. It is probably true to say that Pink Floyd had exhausted their creative joint ability on the Wall. The Final Cut was not as good. Without Waters they lost their Lennon or McCartney. It was foolish for them to fight over the name because without one of them it is not Pink Floyd. The music since has been bland and lifeless. This album is so boring. It goes nowhere, does nothing. Average vocals on the last track. It sounds like a jamming session that should have stayed on the shelf. There is no structure to the tunes. At best background music. So sorry!

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks better than the tubular things, 19 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Equivalent to the old 60 watt bulb. Although I replaced a 100 watt bulb and didn't notice any loss in brightness. 85% energy saving. 20000 hours therefore should last 20 years if only use for 2.7 hours a day. So even though I have knocked a star off for value for money (ten notes at time of writing) in time it may gain that star back (come back in 10 years time for update!). Decent size, feels robust (unlike the old one which felt flimsy). Looks better than the tubular things. No complaints!

5.0 out of 5 stars Queen at their rocking best!, 4 Nov 2014
This was my Queen era. Queen 1, 2 and Sheer Heart Attack. After that they progressed technically and musically but it was this era when they really rocked. What a great sound from four young guys in the early 70's. I still consider Sheer Heart Attack the ultimate rock album and this concert tour was to promote it. Before Queen became really big, before Bohemian Rhapsody when they went off into Pop Opera. Good picture quality for the era. Sound not perfect (at times a bit too much bass) but no complaints from me, this is forty years old and captures the young vibrant Queen at their best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but there are cheaper alternatives., 4 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This does the job it is paid for ie increases the volume on my 60s and 70s music. It is small and light. However the fiio eo6 is smaller and lighter and cheaper and does the same job. Value for money it does not score on compared to others. The volume control is difficult to move up and down gradually. Reasonable product but I cannot recommend when there are cheaper similar products available.

5.0 out of 5 stars User friendly., 4 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Price has come down a hundred notes since I received this a month ago so watch out! Three thirty five when I received. Now had time to test it and have been pleasantly suprised how straight forward it is to use. Follow the screen, manual not required! Can be used by a sole trader or a limited company with up to 99 emplyees. Bad news for accountants ( no longer required!).

5.0 out of 5 stars So highly recommended., 22 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Strong and robust. Supposedly the equivalent of a 40 watt bulb but this is slightly brighter than a 60 watt bulb we have in the same room. Expensive but it should last a lot longer than standard bulbs. As well as use a lot less electricity. So highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Showering in warm rain!, 22 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I wasn't sure from all the information supplied whether or not this was compatible with our shower. It is. In fact it is great. All I had to do was unscrew the old shower head and screw this on, that simple. We do have a fairly modern shower (installed last year) so I don't know about compatibility issues with older models. I suspect as long as your shower head unscrews it should be ok. From a pressure point of view, again no problem. We have a combi boiler so the pressure was ok anyway. Water tanks with gravity feed are unlikely to work because there will not be enough pressure. I enjoyed our old shower but this is a whole new experience. It is like showering in hot/warm rain. Lovely. Recommended!!!

This review is from: Rustic Solid Oak Large Bookcase
Good size. Solidly built. Looks like it did in the shop! Very well packed. Delivered within ten days. Great service. Be aware that you have to unpack it yourself and this is a big, heavy item. Better with two doing the unpacking as you have to keep the packing in good condition just in case of return. Highly recommended, we will be buying other items in this range.
