New Wall Mounted Outdoor Patio Garden Infrared Heater
New Wall Mounted Outdoor Patio Garden Infrared Heater

Price: £44.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and nasty, 3 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased two of these for the patio and they didn't last one winter.
Not only does the heating element stop working in less than 6 months, but the plastic and metal housing for the unit both fades and corrodes.
Quite simply: you get what you pay for. Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beauty!, 17 July 2011
This product is fantastic! Does exactly what it claims to do.
Ergonomically friendly.
Great price.
My only criticism is perhaps the torch could be brighter, but it is predominantly a radio - the torch is a bonus.
Highly recommended!

2.0 out of 5 stars Borderline performance, 8 July 2011
I am disappointed with this Notebook.
After reading several reviews and research, I was looking forward to using this Notebook for my University work.
Unfortunately the DVD/CD drive has very poor performance. It works, but right from the start it is variable in reading a wide variety of digital media - brand new music CD's, DVD's, CR-ROM's etc.
It often requires several eject and re-loading attempts to get it to load/read correctly.
The drive does work, but I have a hassle with it every time I use it.
I probably should return the product, but then I am without a PC again & it doesn't seem to be worth it.
This is my first experience with Acer and I am unlikely to consider this brand again.
I would recommend you do your research thoroughly before purchasing any type of PC.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT purchase the DVD and book together!!, 11 Feb 2009
Undoubtedly an excellant product, but purchase the DVD and book separately as Amazon (rather stupidly) shrink wrap the DVD and Book together for shipping in one delivery. This inevitably results in the DVD casing being smashed to pieces due to the weight of the book in transit.
It is an unecessary and completely avoidable hassle to return the broken DVD case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellant value!, 16 Jan 2009
I wanted a reliable, static web cam for Skype at a good price. This camera is perfect - really good image quality, very simple to use and set up with Vista. It works particularly well in low light conditions. While the mic isn't brilliant, it is functional, and at this price - I'm not complaining!

5.0 out of 5 stars Giddy up!!, 12 Oct 2007
We're seeing great things from BBC3 - it seems a testing ground for Aunty Beeb - if it works - then Prime Time, if not, it will never been screened to a wider audience again!!

Thankfully, Gavin and Stacey works. On many levels.

In a simular style to Australia's brilliant 'Kath and Kim' series, Gavin and Stacey is a refreshing look at a down to earth romance.

Chav maybe, funny definately - this series manages to capture both genuine laughs and care and concern about the lovable characters portrayed by this brilliant cast.

Enough with the review...just enjoy this wonderful DVD!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars I have a dream!, 22 May 2006
This review is from: 12"/80s Vol.2 (Audio CD)
I have a dream! That one day, every single piece of recorded music will be available for us to purchase from a vast online store, like iTunes, but fairer. The price we pay for each track is fair, based upon date since original release and enduring popularity.

Until then, we are at the mercy of terrible compilations like this!

Where from 3 discs, there are 3 or 4 decent tracks. The rest is pure tripe - not even making the hot 200 in 1985!!!

Don't waste your money on this, if you like a few tracks, then download them instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw truth with dignity, 25 April 2006
Danniella Westbrook can now hold her head high with confidence. Not because surgery has restored her infamous septum lost to the ravages of cocaine abuse, but because she tells her story with raw, honest truth.

Unlike some vacuous celebrity 'autobiographies', Daniella strips the shallow facade of celebrity, and gives the reader an honest insight into the sometimes despairing and seductive cost of life in the spotlight.

Brilliant. Read it. Learn from it.

Leave the trash for Posh to put out.
