HP X3900 Wireless Mouse

Price: £12.41

5.0 out of 5 stars Why is this a GOOD mouse?, 1 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
OLD MOUSE
=========
I have been using a basic optical USB wired mouse for years. Every time I try a different one, they don't compare well and I go back to the wired version.

WIRELESS
========
This mouse feels and performs just as good as the wired mouse.
Movement- check
Responsiveness- check
Accurateness- check
Scroll wheel- check
Button click- check

BLUETOOTH
=========
No it uses a little (supplied nano transmitter) so it's not a bluetooth mouse.

PLUG AND PLAY
=============
Worked within seconds. (Windows 8.1)

BATTERIES
=========
Included. An AA. Lasts months normally. (I read somewhere 30 months- I'll update when it runs out)

LOOKS NICE
==========
It's comfortable and stylish too.

RANGE
=====
About 10 metres away.

OVERALL
=======
A reasonably priced little mouse. Looks nice. Works well. Recommended.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
SUPER SKIN
==========
I do like a good moisturiser. One that's not too greasy but effective.
For example I love E45 E45 Dermatological Moisturising Lotion - 500 ml as it's a good solid moisturiser but find it a tad too greasy. Good though if you have rash or something.
I'm also a fan of the more expensive range. L'occitane - AFTER SHAVE BALM 75ML L'OCCITAN

GOOD FOR DRY SKIN
=================
This is really good for dry or sensitive skin. If other products cause havoc on your skin. maybe consider this one.

LIGHT
=====
This cream is very lightweight and absorbs quickly.
I noticed a difference on day one of use.

OVERALL
=======
If you have sensitive skin, need a light absorbent moisturiser this is one to consider.


Lavievert Gray Felt Case Real Leather Bottom Bag Magnetic Button Sleeve for Apple 13" MacBook Air / 13" MacBook Pro Retina
Lavievert Gray Felt Case Real Leather Bottom Bag Magnetic Button Sleeve for Apple 13" MacBook Air / 13" MacBook Pro Retina
Offered by lavievert
Price: £39.99

5.0 out of 5 stars La Vie Vert, 29 Jun. 2015
Smart
====
Comfortable fit around the macbook air.

Stylish
=====
It looks quite nice.

Fluffy
====
It has a nice feel. I do think it'll be prone to getting dirty or getting fluffy balls.

Good magnetic clasp
================
Nice solid feel. the magnet is neither to string or too weak.

Nice Looking
==========
It's quite beautiful.Particularly with perfectly placed pieces of leather. It feels nice and looks nice.
The piece of leather at the bottom of the sleeve is soft leather that wraps around and is a little higher at the back. It is perfect for your hand.
The leather also makes the sleeve quite sturdy.

Recycle
======
The bulk of the material appears to be recycled fabric blended into felt. Hence the 'La vie vert.'

RECOMMENDED
=============
Yes.


Oral-B Stages Vitality Avengers Electric Toothbrush for Kids
Oral-B Stages Vitality Avengers Electric Toothbrush for Kids
Price: £17.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Good mid range toothbrush, 29 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I DO LIKE THE ORAL B RANGE
==========================
The whole Oral-B range of toothbrushes vary in price. This is a mid range one and I think it's simply fantastic.

Some of the range have additional features that you'll NEVER EVER use.

I like this one as it's fast enough, light enough and holds a charge for several days.

CHARGER
=======
It comes with the smaller, neater charging base. It's aimed at children and it colourful and appealing for that age group.

CLEAN TEETH
===========
I had squeaky clean teeth after two minutes using this toothbrush. I've also had the much more expensive Oral B toothbrushes and also tried the cheaper ones. This is much better than the cheaper ones. (They're a little slower) and the more expensive ones have a few more bells and whistles that you''ll never use. Overall this is ideal for most people. It's a really good routine for children to adopt: Brush for at least 2 minutes.

RECOMMENDED
===========
If you're after a reasonably priced electric toothbrush for children, this is certainly one to consider. Hope this was helpful.

HEELYS
======
Heelys are the brand of roller shoe that have a wheel embedded in each sole.

ADULTS
======
I wish. They are always in children's sizes.

JUST A ROLLER SHOE
==================
Nopes, you can can walk, run, or, by placing some weight to your heels, roll. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

STOPPING
========
Braking is achieved by lowering the back of the shoe so that sole makes contact with the ground.

BANNED
=======
As it's a form of skating they are banned in some schools, shopping centres and some councils (Yeovil).

INJURY
======
Not guaranteed, but you are likely to fall and get a graze or bruise. Some have had broken bones. To be fair there's a danger in everything. (crossing roads, riding a bike, using a pogo stick, playing conkers...) I think they're great and will take the chance.

RECOMMENDED
===========
Wheeeeeeeeeeee, whoooooooooosh, yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesss

5.0 out of 5 stars A Few Things Every Good Speaker Should Have, 28 Jun. 2015
GOOD
====
I needed a speaker that was wireless and this one was also waterproof which was an added bonus.

WELL PRESENTED
==============
The box is quite nice and well packaged.

NOT TOO BIG
===========
It's just under 9 CMs big. It's depth is under 5 CMs.

RUGGED
======
The outer body is made of a rubber. No rain, sleet, snow will penetrate this robust little beast.

SETUP
=====
Takes seconds to setup. Hold the search... voila paired. My iphne paired instantly.

SOUND
=====
For a little speaker it packs a punch. So much from so little. (THIS HAS NEVER BEEN SAID TO ME)

BOOM
====
It can fill a medium sized room full of sound. It's simply amazing the sound quality and level out of something so tiny.

LIGHT
=====
It's light and so very portable. Battery life was about 5 hours.

TELEPHONE CALLS
===============
It says you can have a 'conference type call' with the inbuilt mic. Hmmmm. I didn't think it was that good. I'd give this a miss.

OVERALL
=======
Good sound, good value and if you need a portable speaker this is one to consider. If you need to make calls too-look elsewhere.
Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Few Things Every Good Bluetooth Headphones Should Have, 28 Jun. 2015
WELL PACKAGED
=============
Suitable for giving as a gift. Well packaged and they look far more expensive than the purchase price. (Which is always good as a gift)

THE FIT
=======
Fit surprisingly well. And they stay in. I have the larger type of ear. The type that people remark, "Oh where's Noddy?" But these are comfortable and easy to fit.

FULL FEELING
============
With the silicone fitting the ears feel a little 'full'. That's the only way I can describe it. They plug up your entire ear canal. The smaller fitting is much more comfortable. If you need to exclude external noise use the larger ear pieces.

NECK DESIGN
===========
I rather like the behind-the-neck style. If they fall out of your ears they don't hit the floor. Just your neck.

PAIRING
=======
with an iPhone 5 the pairing was very quick: just push the button on the right-hand earbud and give it about 5 seconds the first pairing.

SOUND
=====
Good. Not awful, not top end, but very very good. Not too tin-ey. Not base-ey.

RANGE
=====
About 4 metres

BATTERY
=======
4 hours and 36 minutes.

OVERALL
=======
Good value and well made too. I'll update if there are any problems.

PREMIUM STICK
=============
This is a 2015 Premium Selfie Stick which has a compact and secure design.

SIMPLE
======
It's really really simple to use. I was up and running in less than a minute. (iPhone 5)
Simply turn the selfie stick on and pair it with your phone via Bluetooth.
It then allows you to use the built in button to take photos.

COMPACT
=======
Just under 25 CMs when folded away. That's not too bad. Maximum extension is about just under 88 CMs.

QUALITY
=======
I was really impressed with the quality of this selfie stick. All the threaded connections are tight and durable. It feels secure. I've had other sticks that the connections loosen or the phone isn't kept too securely which result in a fallen phone. (fortunately it didn't break.) This is a solidly made one. I've had no problems with it.

GREAT SHOTS
===========
This isn't guaranteed. Unfortunately the quality of the shots taken with it 'depend upon the user.' So mine have been OK. Not fantastic, not awesome but better than extending my arm.

OVERALL
=======
It's a well made selfie stick which is solid, looks nice and packs away. One to put on your shortlist.
Recommended.


Primetime Princess
Primetime Princess
by Lindy DeKoven
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.64

4.0 out of 5 stars summer reading, 24 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Primetime Princess (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was really interested in reading this book since I've always been interested in the television industry.

It's about a woman who has gone from secretary to a senior management position within a television company.

The characterisation is well developed and believable. It's a good summer read book in the 'woman against the male dominated industry', It's light, but thought provoking too.

Recommended.

It's good value (June 2015- £20) and well made. Recommended.
