Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I found this device quite uncomfortable to wear after a relitevely short time and so didnt feel I wanted to use for a whole night. The initial effect was of an increased air flow when breathing through my nose. I think looking at other reviews that this does work well for some so it has got to be worth a try to cure loud snoring.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well written and informative account of the Ottoman Empire's role in the 1st World War. It is good to be able to read an account of the 1914-18 war which is not fixed on history from a British perspective. This book gives an insight into some of the events that led to the fall of the Ottamans and a change in the near and middle East, that gives a good historical view on current day events in teh area.
A very well written book that is readable to the interested reader and not just one for accademics.


My big art show: A Card Game + Book - Collect Paintings to Win
My big art show: A Card Game + Book - Collect Paintings to Win
by Susie Hodge
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Educational, 6 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a fun and educational colourful art game for children target age 8 and over. The box set comes with a set of 54 large "Top Trump" style cards with pictures of a key word of art and some key information. The cards can be used to play a number of different games, instructions to play are enclosed. Due to the nice large size of the cards, some children may find if difficult to hold many cards in their hands for some of the games that use more cards.
There is an accompanying paperback book in the presentation box which gives more information about the works of art shown on the cards. Nice present for an arty 10 year old, or a good resource for a junior school art teacher.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a good mid-priced tablet from a reputable company Lenovo, 16 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good mid-priced tablet from a reputable company Lenovo. It is obviously not as easy and slick to use as the much more expensive models from the lieks of Apple and Samsung. The tablet comes loaded with a version of the Android opperating system which will update to 4.4.2 KitKat when connected to your WiFi. This is very much the same as used on most Android mobile phones and so is easy to make the move from phone to tablet.
The big advantage is the bigger display size which makes the use of the tablet easier than trying to run programmes on your phone. Nice product and a good price.

This review is from: The Land Agent (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This novel is the third book in J David Simons' trilogy that started with "The Credit Drapper" and "The liberation of Celia Kahn". This stands as a novel in its own right and doesn't have to be read with the other book.
This novel covers the story of a Jewish settlement in Palestine during the 1920s, and does a very good job of weaving a story into the complexities of the politics and strugle in the area. Although historically based the novel revolves around the struggle for land ownership in the area which has a resonance to political strugles in the area today.
A very readable novel which gives a good insight into the attitudes of the great powers in the region to Palestine, which also gives an insight into why the region is so complex today.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a nice starter set to introduce the Battroborg series of games and accessories. Different characters are available to buy separately. This set includes a pair of fighting robots and the arena to fight in, plus a pair of the remote controls which are similar to a turned off light sabre.
There are quite a few small parts which will need to be watched with young children. These fall off when the robots are hit, and will need to be clipped back on.
The video on the main product page is worth looking at to see what the product is like in use.
Would be better if the game came with rechargeable batteries and even better if batteries are included.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good halogen fan oven which comes with a couple of metal racks to place the food on. I have had a halogen oven before and this one works as well. However this product doesnt include a stand for the lid, which after use will be extremely hot. The other part that really needs updating is the timer, which must be set for the heating element to come on. In light of the advanced nature of halogen oven, could it not have a more advanced timer system than clockwork.
Good product let down by level of accessories and poor timer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quaility picture great interactivity options., 6 Nov. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent TV with suburb picture quality and good sound.

This latest model Sony TV is a Smart tv meaning it has access to a large number of Apps for interactive services connected to the internet. Amongst these are the obvious iPlayer, you Tube, Amazon Prime, and netflix services. many other not so obvious choices as well as plain internet access and Facebook. Setting the TV up intially is very straight forward and mainly automated. There is an information button on the control which takes you to pages of information to enable you to make the most of this TV.

Picture quality is really very good. Nice clear contracts and good blacks and whites as well as the colours. I watched "Batman Returns" on BluRay as a test and was very pleased with the quality which was far superior to my previous LCD TV which is only 5 years old.

The television will contect with a number of mobile phones on the same wifi network, which means you can share photos from your phone on the large screen. This works very well, from my Sony Z1, I was amazed at the quaility of the photos on the screen. Previous TVs showing photos has often been a disapointment but with this quality screen pictures do look vivid and pin sharp.

One critisim would be the aparent quality of the stand which seems a little flimsly and mainly just plastic. The TV unit is amazingly light for its size so possibly the flimsy stand is all that is needed and also as its so light many people will be mounting this on the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soft and warming., 3 Nov. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What can you say in a review about a throw for a sofa. Well first this has not yet been used as a throw on my sofa. The dimensions are such that for a large sofa it is going to be too small. Ideal for a large chair or small sofa. However the main reason is that the throw is so soft and comfortable that it has been used as a cover for the occasional colder evening we have had whilst watching tv rather than bothering with heating. Maybe the answer is to buy two one as a throw and one to keep you warm.
