5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the critics! Amazing value, lightweight shaver., 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ignore the critics! Stunning value shaver that works well. Very compact and lightweight. Some critics have said it shaved well at first but then not so good. That is because they didn't bother to brush out the shaver head (brush included at this amazing price!). Others have said it left some beard behind. They, perhaps, have never used an electric shaver where it is normal to glide over your stubble a few times. (Although a razor may cut your stubble in one pass, it can also catch every raised area of skin, leaving you with a face covered in pieces of tissue as you try & stem the bleeding!) Finally some said you couldn't fit the shaver & brush in the case (also supplied!). Well, I did. Just place the shaver in the lower half of the case, place brush on top of the shaver head with protective cover in place, then slowly lower the top half of case & zip it up.

Installed reasonably easily although I did need to adapt the mount on my dish as they were different makes (remove spirit level mount that comes with LNB, carve off edges to dish mount & tape round LNB to increase diameter in my case). If your new to this you will need to know to offset the mount from absolute vertical dependant on your geo-location (look up skew angle on internet). Worked straight away for me after fitting.


ADULT MAGIC CLOTHES FOLDER ORGANIZER TSHIRTS COLOUR VARIES
ADULT MAGIC CLOTHES FOLDER ORGANIZER TSHIRTS COLOUR VARIES

5.0 out of 5 stars Really works well!, 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The clothes folder is great for folding T-shirts etc. into neat same sized units ready for packing in drawers, suitcases etc. Top tip: smooth out the shirt by pulling the edges before beginning the folding for really good results.
Some users have said the hinges may come apart with time but bearing in mind how inexpensive this was & that a piece of gaffer tape would easily repair it, makes it really good value for money. Having a pile of shirts that don't look like they've been folded by an orangutan: priceless!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Smartphone, 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very intuitive & easy to use smartphone.
I like the sweep down from the top to reveal the touch screen switches for WiFi, GPS, Sound On/Off & Bluetooth making them quick & easy to switch on & off to prolong battery life etc.
I also like the fact that I can carry a spare battery & insert it when the old one runs out (unlike certain brands one could mention that will leave you stranded & alone because you, the owner, can't change it).
I chose the S4 Active as it is a 1.1mm thicker, tougher, waterproof version of the S4, you can take underwater photos & has all the functionality for the same price. The screen is great & very detailed & clear. The number of useful Apps is amazing including Voice Control, Voice Recorder, Memo with hand drawing/writing or typing,Translator with 10 languages, Maps & Navigation GPS and being Android 4.2.2, the greatest number of free Apps online. It's also a fast processor & 4G ready.
If I had to wish for anything it would be extended battery life as the normal battery will do about 8-12 hours with heavy use (two days + with lower usage). Otherwise, a brilliant phone!

3.0 out of 5 stars Works in Nikon camera but not Canon camcorder, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I sent one back because it wouldn't work in my Canon camcorder in HD mode suggesting the camcorder was unable to write to it fast enough despite other cards working. The second sample is the same so I kept it for the Nikon camera.

Famous and generally reliable anti-virus but I wish it was less expensive because of the need to continually renew it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Horrific study of unbridled fascist power & sadism., 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This film, banned and censored for many years, has now been re-released in its original form & been well restored digitally. It is a film, set in Italy late in World War II, showing how absolute fascist power corrupts absolutely. It depicts rich, powerful people subjugating and mistreating a group of captured young people for their own sexual & sadistic pleasures. It shows gross depravity and is both erotic and horrific (and not for the faint-hearted!). Top tip: don't eat anything while you're watching it!
