5.0 out of 5 stars Well-priced iPad mini case in a great colour, 1 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Test of time will tell of course, but on first impressions it's a well-fitting product, dispatched promptly, at a very reasonable price. Chosen because it comes in my son's favourite colour making it easy to locate & it offers all round protection of his iPad, front & back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid!, 4 Aug. 2014
Just binned the Kenwood multi pro.

No variance in speed - sounded like an aircraft taking off.
The feeble whisk attachments broke first use out - only suitable for egg whites & the like, certainly not fruit cake mixture.
The contents of the blender jug leaked through the base and through the machine.
Bowl required a lot of scraping round the sides to try & get all contents mixed.

Didn't live up to billing & rue not boxing it up & returning it immediately. Amazingly Kenwood didn't think it was faulty! An expensive mistake.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get it shipped on ice!, 9 Jun. 2014

This product has to stay refrigerated to work - it wasn't. Completely pointless & expensive waste of money :(

For the price I thought that was exactly what is be getting. Wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Everyone - A Gem of A Book!, 27 Feb. 2012
As a positive and confident person myself, I was intrigued to see what Moving On Up contained. I was amazed that it included many more techniques than the basics I've self taught to get over huge life changing events and bring me to my happy state today. I wish I'd been able to read this many years ago and I'm sure I wouldn't have lost years of my life wallowing in worry and anxiety. One example, and there are plenty more, is the section on helping people to sleep - it has incredible wisdom - and it works!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great first rugby ball, 15 Mar. 2011
Great first ball specifically designed for the younger player (suggested range is for the under 9s). You will need a pump as it arrives deflated.

4.0 out of 5 stars The lazy way to style your hair :), 15 Mar. 2011
This is the 'almost' 'nearly' perfect hair styler. The adverts show the model with shoulder length hair but mine is a layered bob at chin length and have no problems at all using the BaByliss Big Hair. And it makes doing the back of the hair a complete doddle.

It is very easy to use. The sliding purple button turns it on and offers a variety of temperatures, from cool to hot, but do note, that it spins at it fastest only on the hottest setting - so protecting the hair against heat damage is a must. And then there are two buttons at the top of the handle that spin it one way or the other. And that's it. Simple.

It comes with a purple plastic sleeve to protect the bristles when it's not it use, otherwise they will flatten. And this is why it's not getting 5* from me. My hair is straight and fine, although there's a lot of it, and I find the bristles marginally too soft. They don't properly go through the hair all the way to the ends, or it only does in very very thin sections, which means my hair does tend to frizz at the ends with the BaByliss Big Hair, rather than get that smooth finished look that other brushes or ghd type straighteners manage and at approx £45 I think it should deliver.

But for making a laborious task very easy and quick, I'd still recommend it.

Edit Sept 2011: after 6-7 months and, it has to be said, daily usage it went kaput. Fortunately I still had the receipt and there was a no-fuss, no-quibble replacement within 10 days from the UK manufacturer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well-made but creates frizz!, 15 Mar. 2011
I'm still looking for the perfect styler as the Tresemme Professional Volume Styler isn't it. It's just ok, functional, but doesn't give the finish on the hair as my previous Remington, which unfortunately has been 'superseded' by a so-called 'better' model.

The positives: simple to use, very comfortable to hold, all-in-one styler so no problem with the attachments falling off, unlike the Nicky Clarke (I've tried a lot!), powerful motor so quick to dry the hair.

The negatives: the bristles aren't bristles, but rock hard plastic prongs with no give/bend at all. It might claim ceramic plates, but the result is my hair (which is fine but plenty of it) feels frizzy rather than smooth after use, especially at the ends, because the hair isn't brushed properly as it's dried.

It reminds me of what was available 20 years ago - there are better models out there.

3.0 out of 5 stars Georgeous camera - appalling instruction manual, 31 Dec. 2010
Decided to upgrade camera from an Ixus and after doing a lot of research this Lumix G10 in so many ways ticks all the right boxes. It's very comfortable to hold, so lightweight you could easily tote it around all day, the controls are well-laid out and is an amazing camera for the price. On auto-mode it takes great pictures. However, as soon as I need to recourse to the instruction manual my blood pressure soars, it's the most impenetrable and badly laid out guide I've ever encountered. I'm just so disappointed. If you know what you're doing or have experienced camera friends to advise, then I can't see it being a problem but, if like me, you thought you'd work your way through the guide, forget it. It's certainly taken the shine off what was a marvellous present.
