Friedland Libra+ 150M Plug-in Chime Kit D943E
Friedland Libra+ 150M Plug-in Chime Kit D943E
Offered by ExtrasOnline
Price: £39.85

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money, 22 July 2014
There are lots of different variations of these wireless doorbells from Friedland, some with brass push buttons, some with battery powered ringers etc. They are more expensive than the non-branded ones at ten quid or so. I decided to avoid the failure and get this one in the first place.

Comes with a plug in ringer, three chime types, traditional "ding-dong" and two more musical variations. Sound is nice and loud, I can hear it over my two storey house no problem. Push button comes with two screws or a foam sticky pad, which is what I used on my PCV door. Both items feel good quality.

The ringer can be activated by up to two push buttons and an optional PIR which can be added. There are three lights to show you which has activated the bell. So, front door, back door or sensor. There is also a white light that flashes on top, shining upwards for about ten seconds and the unit can be set so the bell sound, flashing indicator and flashing white light go off. Great if you are hard of hearing, or just listening to music etc. There are three setting and three chime types.

Simplicity itself in terms of setup and works. I will update the review if anything changes over time, but so far seems very good.


Pipers Crisps Lye Cross Cheddar and Onion (Pack of 24)
Pipers Crisps Lye Cross Cheddar and Onion (Pack of 24)

Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Super tasty, 24 Jun 2014

I stumbled upon these crisps at an RSPB centre cafe and had never heard of them before. Like the other reviewers have said you remember your first packet! FULL of intense flavour, these are a premium crisp, if there is such a thing.

I have only tried this flavour so far and will no doubt carry on and try some of the others. Near-impossible to find in stores, but good old Amazon delivers as usual.

They are not low fat, low salt, low calorie or low cost, but they are darn good!


Canon LCE77 E-77 II Lens Cap for EF Lens with USM
Canon LCE77 E-77 II Lens Cap for EF Lens with USM
Price: £9.27

3.0 out of 5 stars At last!, 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Finally Canon has realised that a centre pinch with concave grips and grooves to prevent slipping is the way to go with a lens cap. This really should not have been difficult for them and it has been a long time coming. This newer design works well in removing the cap when your lens hood is on and they are thicker and seem sturdy and well made.

Price is Canon-like in that they seem to make more money from selling bits of plastic than they do from electronics and glass!

Silly price and silly that owners should have to pay extra, and yet I did.


e-cloth - Cleaning Pad
e-cloth - Cleaning Pad
Offered by Top Brand Discounts 4 u

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably better than the standard cloths, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: e-cloth - Cleaning Pad
This is a cleaning version of the e-cloth material that is incorporated into a sponge filling. It is sewn into four ribbed sections and has a seam around it to stop it fraying etc.

This works great for just about anything you can use an e-cloth for. This has some additional benefits of absorbing water so the cloth stays damp instead of soaked. It does not lose it's shape and can be easily folded over to use it in sections.

Good for the kitchen and bathroom and a must if you like your e-cloths. Bathroom mirror splashed with water or condensation? This is just the ticket.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I own several e-cloth products and have been very impressed with their ability to clean with just water. Stains and marks that you would normally set upon with a chemical concoction just disappear with a damp cloth. They also kill bacteria and leave your surface nice and hygienic.

This seemed like a good use of this cloth. Flexible and can get in all those nooks and awkward spaces.

Firstly, the cloth has a little hook and loop tab on the bottom to stop it sliding off. When removed the inner core is dense foam. The wand can be bent to reach over things and such but this takes a bit of effort and is hard to straighten afterwards. The main problems with this though are:

- Too floppy! This thing bends and waves and has so much play in it that you can't really exert downward force on the surface you are cleaning as it just bends.

- The cloth moves around when on. It is a loose fitting and shifts about when on, it is not taut.

This can be used dry for dusting or wet for cleaning, but like I say, using wet it limited use as you can't press down like you would with a cloth or sponge.

Good idea, bad execution I'm afraid. You can still get in those spaces on your washing machine etc and it does fulfill a limited function.

Overall though I just would not recommend it.

AmazonBasics USB 2.0 A-Male to A-Female Extension Cable 3.3 Feet / 1.0 m
Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought two of these to extend wireless USB receivers for my mouse and keyboard. Not wanting to clog up the front USB ports on my PC, I now plug them in the rear and run this cable out to the front somewhere.

Fits well, has worked without fault and seems well made and at a very good price. No need to buy some steel braided, hugely expensive cable.

Recommended.

This is a typical large spirit level with three bubbles for different orientations. Metal with plastic end caps and a bright yellow colour. This is well made and mine was without flaws.

Good price, delivered quickly and comes in very handy around the house. Recommended.


Cescahide A4 Deluxe Zipped Bonded Leather Conference Folder with Calculator and Pad - Black
Cescahide A4 Deluxe Zipped Bonded Leather Conference Folder with Calculator and Pad - Black
Price: £26.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice case, 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case is nothing new in terms of design. Has a zip closure and pockets inside with one zipped also. Usual smaller sections for ID and a calculator, which works well enough. It seems well made and the zip etc works smoothly.

This is somewhat more expensive than other of the same design you can buy, because this one uses real leather. This I think adds a nice touch and smell about it. Whether or not it is worth paying the extra for is really a matter of opinion, and I suppose how much of an impression you want to make.

I like the real leather and am happy with the purchase. I will update the review after more use with regards to durability.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget gum or mints, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a way to freshen my breath without chewing gum, which is not always appropriate and hurts my gums after too long, or for that matter carrying mints.

These are a nice and very quick and easy way to do so. Tiny plastic packet, strips dispense easily and they really do work. Very intense minty sensation initially that wears off soon and leaves a nice fresh breath feeling for a decent amount of time thereafter.

They supposedly kill germs that cause bad breath so in that sense are probably also better than mints etc.

I like them. The ease and speed that you can pop one in your mouth and have fresh breath confidence can't be beaten.

I haven't seen them in shops so handy to get them here. I had never used breath strips before but will form now on.


Beautiful Luxury extra long shower curtain 100% polyester hooks included-2m (Grey)
Beautiful Luxury extra long shower curtain 100% polyester hooks included-2m (Grey)
Offered by Beytug UK

4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth and compact, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this new shower curtain to replace a rather plastic one I had that was looking pretty moldy and old.

This has a nice look to it with a subtle pattern. It is pretty thin and semi-transparent. Has a weighted hem which is a must. When drawn out of the way it also can fold up into a small space to it does not get in the way too much when not in use, unlike my last one.

Decent price and seems to work well. The hooks could have been a little better, they seem a bit roughly cut but to work.

I will update in future on how it lasts but so far I am happy with it.
