5.0 out of 5 stars excellent for icing cupcakes, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one of these because i needed to decorate 140 cupcakes i made for a birthday party, firstly the quality is top notch and it made icing the cakes using butter icing a doddle. it holds enough icing to generously ice 10 to 12 large cupcakes and although the supplied nozzles are a bit on the small size they still work well and produce some great results, i found filling it up quite easy using a desert spoon with not too much mess. cleaning it is easy as the top and nozzle holder just twist off leaving the stainless steel tube for easy cleaning, i have not used the cookie maker discs yet so i can`t comment on them but for icing cakes this is quicker and cleaner than the traditional icing kits that we normally use.

1.0 out of 5 stars don`t waste your money, 15 Jan 2014
i bought one of these lenoge batteries for my toshiba l300d laptop after the original finally gave up after five years use, i bought it on the 2nd jan 2014 from ebay and it worked fine for five days then it completely failed. unfortunately the non original batteries are very hit and miss on quality and that applies to these batteries as mine was total rubbish and was returned for a refund, i have now invested in a new genuine toshiba battery and although it was double the price of this one its a hundred times better quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good quality spanner FOR C02 BOTTLES, 12 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would not normally bother to review a spanner but there seems to be some confusion over the type of gas this spanner is used for especially as the advertisement just says gas spanner, the cheap price for the quality of the spanner is very good but as many buyers have found out it is not a calor gas spanner it is for C02 gas bottles.
i ordered six of these spanners for my place of work as they fit the C02 bottles that are linked up to the fizzy drinks dispensers that you see in your local restaurants and pubs and possibly welding torches as well. if you need a calor gas spanner try this one Propane Gas Bottle Spanner Heavy Duty

5.0 out of 5 stars a quick value for money micro sd card, 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading some of the negative reviews on this card i thought i would be taking a chance, i was pleasantly surprised when i received it because the actual card has samsung printed on it whereas the one in the picture does not [many reviews are claiming it to be fake} also the claims of slow speed when transferring files are not evident on the card i have received as i transferred a 2 gig video file from my laptop to the card using a basic chinese made usb card reader and it hit 12.4 MBps constant and 13 MBps max. the class six rating means 6 MBps minimum data transfer rate, but when memory cards are plugged in to certain electronic devices, tablets for example can slow the data transfer rates right down so it is best to use a usb card reader for best data transfer speed. the card i have received is an excellent buy and well priced.

5.0 out of 5 stars better than apple ipod headphones, 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these headphones for my girlfriend as she had tried my jvc extremes and wanted them to replace her ipod headphones, they are louder with more bass and tone and fit better in the ear. you also get spare buds with them, there is a left and right earphone {it is faintly stamped by the ear bud}and they are angled to get right into the ear and only go one way round so make sure you put them in the correct ear or they sound tinny. to buy these now for around a tenner is an amazing price as mine cost more than double this a few months ago and mine are still going strong. i use mine with my android phone and they sound amazing.

2.0 out of 5 stars a tough phone but limited by its low specs, 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i purchased this phone for my girlfriend because she wanted a small simple to use but tough smartphone, because my motorola defy plus has been an excellent phone i thought the defy mini would be of a similar build quality only smaller to fit in her handbag. firstly this phone is tough because she has thrown it against the walls and floor dozens of times in frustration of the terrible user interface, that stupid outdoor pursuit app has a mind of its own and to make a call takes her a few attempts as the contacts list is twitchy and awkward to use. decent apps such as tvcatchup run slow and stuttery due to the slow speed of the processor. so in a nutshell the phone is super tough but
fiddly to use as a phone and not fast enough to power decent apps. the battery life is 4 days using it as a phone or 1 to 2 days using apps, for an extra fifty quid you can buy a defy plus which is far superior in every way possible and a hundred pounds cheaper than it was last year.

3.0 out of 5 stars they are good for the price, 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these gear changers to replace the old lever type changers on my mountain bike, firstly i have to state that these are no good for a kids bike as they are very stiff to turn to change gear. microshift changers are now fitted as standard to a lot of the cheaper cycles that you buy new as they are cheap but functional and they work ok but if you have a little extra cash to spend get the shimano ones instead as they are worlds apart in build quality Shimano Revoshift 21sp Twist Gear Shifters

3.0 out of 5 stars its ok but you can get better ones, 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canyon Cycle Stand (Misc.)
I bought this stand as i needed a black stand for my bike as it had all black parts on it and for some strange reason
all my local bike shops only sold silver ones. installing the stand is easy just undo the main top bolt position the stand so it does not stick out too far but it is not too close to the wheel and tighten it down. the leg has a small pinch bolt which you adjust the leg height with. after a couple of months using my bike i removed this stand as it kept coming loose on its own no matter how much i tightened it {this can be dangerous as it gets close to the rear wheel} and i have now bought a better one which has a wider top fixing and stays tight. if you buy this stand keep checking the tightness of the top fixing bolt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good scrubbing pads, 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
there is not much i can say about a scrubbing pad other than they worked well on industrial linoleum floor and ceramic floor tiles, they are cheaper on amazon than the professional cleaning suppliers so if you need a good quality pad for your scrubbing machine you can`t go wrong with these.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great sound for something so small, 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i bought this speaker to use in my touring caravan as i had heard a friends one and i was stunned by how loud it was and the sound quality was amazing, and just as expected this speaker sounded awesome for its size, all the usual plug in portable speakers that you hear are quiet and tinny so this is a really good buy and this particular one was a bargain price too. you can use this speaker on pretty much any device with bluetooth which include:apple products:iphone ipod ipad any tablet that has bluetooth any phone that has bluetooth and any computer that has bluetooth, the range is pretty good i managed thirty feet without sound loss. to connect just push the button to bluetooth on the speaker and your device picks it up and connects in an instant. you can plug the speaker into devices without bluetooth using the supplied cable but it does not sound as good, you can charge it from any usb socket or an apple charger that has the removable cable, charge time is about an hour and it lasts around an hour on constant use. the only niggle was the top red plastic tab fell off after a day but it is only cosmetic.
