3.0 out of 5 stars It works, 10 May 2013

This product does make some difference to the strength of the coffee but it's hard to tell it apart from the standard one. Well made though and handy as a spare.

Ours kids absolutely love this classic and watch it almost daily on our in car DVD player. Often seems that the old ones are the best!

This review is from: Star Wars X-Wing Fighter Kit (Toy)
Bought this five months ago and my four year old boy still plays with it constantly!
Easyish to construct (one part didn't fit properly) and seems quite robust. A shame the Tie Fighter is so much bigger and more expensive!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously good VFM, 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While I'm not expert (far from it!) I was impressed by the reviews, especially from those that appear to know what they're talking about. Package arrived quickly and we're pretty blown away by how good these are - solid with superb clarity and field of vision. They replaced some supposedly good Viking ones which were also 8 x 40s (older tech though) but these seem far more powerful. A no brainer item - be aware though, as is often the case, the price looks like a bargain compared to the RRP but many other outlets sell it for a similar or even lower price. But for something like this, I was keen to use a well known internet retailer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent watch - does it all, 14 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my fourth G-Shock so clearly I "get" them and their bulky size. This is rather "plasticky" looking (I also have two mainly metal analogue ones) with a rather shiny black, but comfortable strap and case but works incredibly well. The light is excellent, the tide times seem to be staying accurate, it synchs every night here in Cornwall and the other functions are very useful.
I'm a die hard surfer and live by the sea so need to know tides - this was the only G-Shock I could find with solar atomic features, a countdown timer and good tide functions. Being digital it is FAR easier to set up than analogue solar atomics of which I have one!

It's a big watch but seems to look okay on my fairly slim wrists. I got mine for an absolute bargain from Klistch Jeweler (via Amazon).

4.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive, 5 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not had a bread maker before but all the reviews pointed to Panasonic.

Very well made, very easy to use and the bread it produces is superb.

No more supermarket bread! Only tiny downside is that it's pretty big - a bit like a small fridge!

2.0 out of 5 stars It simply works (well it did anyway...), 5 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Matches our Macbook Pro well in appearance and really is just a fit and forget item.

I didn't bother with the software - just did a plug and play. Not had to use it yet but if/when I do, I know it'll all be safe on the HD. Quiet too which is useful.

Update 22/05/14 - we have two of these and both died after about a year. Not so good...

I'm no audiophile and haven't used many headphones but these are definitely exceptionally good. Nice and neat in design, the sound is superb and the noise cancelling appears to be voodoo magic. Only tiny downside is that they do feel slightly odd up against the ears. Otherwise, full marks. Pricey but worth it.

This review is from: WOW Toys Harvey Harvester (Toy)
Our three year old played with one of these at a toddler group and loved it! He's very pleased with it - well made, works well, nice and bright. It's technically a bit inaccurate (harvesters aren't balers!) and he's a bit of a farm machinery nerd but he still loves it. The farmer is a bit easy to lose so hang onto it. Superb customer service from WOW too!


BaByliss for Men 7890U i-stubble Trimmer
BaByliss for Men 7890U i-stubble Trimmer
Price: £44.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good product, 9 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been stubby for a couple of years now using the older i-trim - it was a fairly good product but definitely didn't cut very close and left more of a short beard than proper stubble.
This i-stubble is in a different league altogether! Cuts really close and evenly and also does so without catching like the i-trim often did.
Only minus points are the lack of a carry case and it's a bit long. Also bought an adaptor plug (seeing as everyone else seemed to do so) from two pin to 240v mains and found it comes with one included in the packaging!!

Overall - superb. Just hope the blades last a while.
