3.0 out of 5 stars Blow me down!, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have owned a number of Ryobi products, Drills, Strimmers and blowers. MY last blower was a Ryobi and it lasted 5 or 6 years,which considering I live on the edge of a large woodland area it got some serious use through autumnal leaf fall.
This RBV-26 would have got 4 or 5 stars if it had not been designed by a contortionist. As a blower its now just ok. It does do the job, just not as well as its predecessor. The Vacuum side is another matter; it is very awkward to manually change over and then start and carry, the bag strap does not fit over shoulders to allow it to hang correctly ifor right or left handed use. I cannot fathom how Ryobi let this unit through its testing stages unchallenged.

Would I buy this again..... NO! I may buy Ryobi blower/vacs again, but not without a physical check of the changeover operation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jurys still out!!, 15 Nov 2013
Having used a Ryobi 30cc vac/blower for 5years or more (it died) I thought the lighter Ryobi RB26 would be ideal.... OH NO... it starts well, there's a knack, it blows brilliantly and vacuums fine too.... BUT the practicality of the units design leaves (pun intended) a lot to be desired. The last unit i had was a doddle to interchange from blower to vac, 2 mins tops, this is a nightmare... getting the pipes on and off is laborious and frustrating, was this a french design.... it is not comfortable to operate as a vac, bag straps and pipe bend are not compatible with the operators stance. , I have bought it I will use it, cant see it being as robust as last one, but definitely lighter to operate.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shock horror, 28 Oct 2013
This review is from: Atlantic Rim [DVD] (DVD)
I admit to buying and watching this and am advising anyone to borrow if you must watch this.... SAVE YOUR MONEY. It is atrocious, not funny, so hammy and farcical to the extent it will never be in the hall of fame of those bad films that become cults because of the poor acting/direction. This rim is in the bin.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Classic, 27 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Phantom [DVD] (DVD)
Whether or not the actual facts are true, ( subs name type class etc.usually artistic licence)at that time or even IF the protagonists knew bombs had signatures does not detract from a very well acted film. David Duchovy was miscast... The reconstructed claustrophobic atmosphere of a diesel sub added to the tension. well directed and a surprise ending, its up there with "We dive at dawn" another based on fact.

Worth watching...

3.0 out of 5 stars Nilfisk.???, 30 April 2013
Having researched washers, I bought a Nilfisk with all the attachments. There is no doubt these work well, BUT, The lance speed clip has lasted all of 1 hour, leaking to the extent the patio washer will not spin and the nozzles are not effective, I have noted that someone on youtube has posted a video with exactly the same problem. Surely we are not alone in sufering this poor design problem. The cheap Tesco branded machine I boight to finish drive and patio has out performed it ......

3.0 out of 5 stars Look b4 you leap!!!, 21 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although there is nothing wrong with this item, I did not notice that these are half size discs in the physical sense and only 30mins recording time. looks like I'm gonna have a sealed pile of future coasters ...:(

This is no reflection on price or delivery time.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprised, 8 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book certainly caught me off guard in that it provided a different slant on the SEAL themes. I would not consider it a deep book, quite light weight; that no way detracts from the fact I had to finish it. Now the ending was a disappointment, no real completion,(SPOILER ALERT) and I read that the follow on is the story of one of the others which I feel I must download to satisfy my curiousity as to whether the story line is continued or we are left feeling again incomplete..

A nice time filler..

3.0 out of 5 stars a THOR loser..., 25 Dec 2011
This review is from: Thor [DVD] (DVD)
Some of the effects were ok, the storyline diverted from the original, Thor the cominc character was the invalid Dr. who found the Hammer. This was poorly acted & badly directed, no one I know that has seen it, has rated it above average. Disappointing!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle case review, 29 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's good, none slip, more confident holding the kindle, ideal for arthritic hands with poor grip. The screen protector is ok, but care is needed in putting it on first time, it is easy to trap dust which will not let you squeeze the bubbles out. THE CASE will not let you use any other Kindle accessory such as the Aluminium or Leather protector cases. They are designed to the thickness of the unit, which is a great pity as I have had to remove the silicon cover to put the kindle into a leather carrying cse. It is a matter of preference as around the house the silicon case is easier to pick up hold and keep the unit from scratches.
