Rapesco Supaclip 60 Dispenser with 8 Clips

4.0 out of 5 stars Professional-looking alternative to the paper clip or staple, 18 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great alternative to the staple or pap clip, though a more expensive option.

The advantage of using these clips is that it looks much more professional than a paper clip and can be used on quite a large stack of paper, unlike a staple. Another advantage is the ease with which the clips can be removed and reused, though if you're using them in an office or client context, you are unlikely to be able to easily retrieve your clips after use - which makes the clips quite a bit more expensive than the other options.

However, if your aim is to provide professionalism in every detail of your work, then these clips will certainly make an impression.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great build, good picture quality and nice design, 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With viewing habits changing fast through the availability of services like NETFLIX etc, I was surprised when my teenage daughter asked for one for her Birthday. However, she now used this at least as often as other devices for watching movies.

When she took it out of the box, I was surprised at how good it actually looked. It is well designed, doesn't feel flimsy and performs well. It plays every format of video imaginable and the picture quality is surprisingly good. The screen size is also large for the size and it is not difficult to watch a movie on it.

Bottom line: a nice surprise, and a great alternative for when you're not connected to the internet - which is every time you travel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very fast and the magician software keeps it that way, 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best, most effective upgrades I have given my laptop and has extended its life by at least a year or two. Considering that I go through high-powered laptops every 2 years, this is great! I bought the 1TB version and have not regretted it for a second!

The magician software which ones with the disk is not optional if you want your drive to stay at top performance. Not only does it tweak your windows settings to disable anything which is physical drive-based, but is also keeps the drive working at top performance and after spending all that cash, this is something you'll want to do.

Like other reviewers, I have not turned off indexing and that will shorten the life somewhat, but I suspect that it will last as least as long as any laptop drive - if not longer. I will certainly be taking this drive along with me when my current laptop is finally confined to computer heaven.

Bottom line: if you want to purchase an upgrade that will make a real difference to windows/mac/linux performance, then this is the upgrade for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic sound for inside and outside, 10 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
With the BBQ season ramping up, the issue is how to bring the music. Well this product does just that. It will link up to any Bluetooth source and emit the deepest, loveliest sound I've heard from a mobile BT speaker.

It has a huge bass and several tweeters. The low, mid and high ranges are all covered making it perfect for all types of music from classical to dubstep (believe me, I know, having teens in the house!). This has a much nicer sound than the Bose equivalent which is surprising!

It is protected by a later of rubber which makes it both shock and water resistant (just don't throw a bucket of water over it!). It also has a convenient handle to carry it around, although the weight of the thing makes it difficult to be really mobile. Carry it 100 yards or less and you're fine.

In brief: A definite recommendation from me - especially for the outdoor summer months!


Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar for GCSE - Digital Tester and Handbook
Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar for GCSE - Digital Tester and Handbook

Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.89

4.0 out of 5 stars Great support for all subjects requiring written English, 18 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This handbook and DVD is great for kids of any secondary level wishing to brush up on spelling, punctuation and grammar. The booklet is well laid out and the DVD allows students to track their progress.

Probably not something the kids would automatically pick, but with GCSEs now deducting marks for mad spelling, punctuation and grammar, this is a good way to revise and strengthen use of English.

Note that this is not just for English, but useful in all subjects where essay-writing is important including History, Geography, Music and Psychology.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still great, but only a few differences from the 2013 version, 20 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
So, this version is for people who haven't upgraded for a while. Apart from a few notable additions, this has essentially the same functionality as the 2013 version.

So what's new?

1. Flat rate VAT has finally been added.
2. The Income Tracker is a handy screen which lets you work through all invoices (recently paid, unpaid and more interestingly, overdues.
3. The invoices management functions are now on a handy tab in the invoice production window.
4. Huge speed improvement on startup!

There are numerous little things I am still coming across and I have only been using it for just over a month. In a couple of months I'll post an update if I've missed anything!

4.0 out of 5 stars Appetite control, yes. Weight loss no., 11 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There is no doubt that these capsules have helped me lose weight by removing the hunger pangs. I took them them every day for a week or two before they started working but after that I was much less hungry and can now get though the day without snacking.

I cannot verify the claim about weight loss as my eight hasn't drastically reduced. I believe that the weight loss I have had is due to eating less and exercising more.

4.0 out of 5 stars The detail brings the book alive. Great audio version!, 19 Nov 2013
This review is from: The Kill List (Audiogo) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I won't go through the plot as it's been adequately reviewed here already. This review is for the unabridged audio version.

One of the major issues with audio is the voice of the actor reading the book. If the voice is unusual or distinctive in any way, you spend more time focussing on the voice than getting lost in the narrative.

Thankfully, this version is great. John Chancer does a great job getting the voices just right so that even the gender is recognisable - In a subtle way. No falsetto here!

The story line is rich I detail which creates its realism. This is typical Forsyth : a cracking story, well written, and above all, really well researched. It is modern, up-to-date and surprisingly accurate in describing the complexities of staying hidden on the internet.

Definitely a good holiday read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great bag, suited to commuting rather than travelling, 18 Oct 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The bag itself it smart enough to take into any business meeting. It has 3 sections: a laptop padded section, a documents area (which includes an iPad pocket) and a front pocket also large enough for an iPad. It also comes with a shoulder strap.

As its title indicates, it is a slim bag and not much room is provided for cables. I have a small travel adapter which is ok, but the mains cable makes the bag bulge. Additionally you can probably fit one/two pads plus a pen. The outside pocket is not padded, so you have to be careful when using this in a crowded environment. However, the inside pocket protects an iPad completely, unless you overfill the bag, of course.

It is sturdy and rugged enough for a road warrior and it has a strap on the back which can be used to attach the back to the handle of a roller suitcase. If you travel, you know what I mean (!) but my feeling is that when you travel, you need quite a bit of personal paraphernalia which makes this bag too small (or slim, as they like to say).

4 stars is because it is too small for normal travel, but I guess for simple commuting it's great.
