5.0 out of 5 stars Great tape - does a proper job., 13 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Proper job.
I'd seen this tape in a number of interior decorating sos type TV shows and always wondered if it was any better than the beige stuff you see in the big stores.
It is - because:
The medium blue colour makes it easy to see the position of the tape and the edge that it is masking.
The tape is medium adhesive strength in use - stays where you put it - comes off when you need it to.
This tape doesn't tear as it's removed and has good edge adhesion so it masks well leaving clean lines.
The 36mm width is wide enough that window frames are easy.
Great for art and stencil effects too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful road map, 13 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As more and more of us drive abroad, the value in European wide road maps increases, especially for those of us who don't have a SatNav, or those who don't have a European Sat Nav. But also SatNav's do have their drawbacks. A map has huge advantages in helping plan and consider routes. This is an A3 map, which helps map reading over large distances. The roads are illustrated as to how major a route, and have green sides to illustrate those deemed, "scenic routes", for the tourist who wishes to amble along in beauty, as opposed to simply getting from A:B in the shortest possible time. There are also plans of some capitals and major cities (London, Paris, Hamburg, Antwerp...), and some guidance as to the road rules in different countries. So it would be enormously useful.

On the downside, I would have preferred a thicker book with more detail. While this is useful for long distance driving, you may struggle on the detail in some areas, such as driving round Manchester, which seems to come across as a circle of junctions, making it difficult to work out which one you should use. But that only happens for some major cities. Manchester happens to be one without a more detailed map (but then I'm sure you have a Uk map for places in the Uk). The other gripe, is that only the overview maps at the start cover all of Europe (1:3200,000, so if you are wanting road map pages at 1:75,000 or 1:500,000, it misses out most of Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, and most of Bulgaria. It also misses the Faroe Islands - although to be fair, I don't think there are quite as many roads to navigate on the Faroe's. But, if I was driving to see friends in Greece, the book would effectively support the journey across Europe, and down to the town itself. It also includes ferry routes - which is really handy.

So I do like this book, and I would recommend it. Whilst you may still want a more detailed map for the area you are staying - this is really good for those of us who love the idea of road trips across Europe.


Tefal ActiFry Low Fat Fryer, 1 kg - White
Tefal ActiFry Low Fat Fryer, 1 kg - White
Price: £120.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a great machine, 12 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a hugely versatile fryer. It can be used to make healthier chips, adding a tablespoon of oil and salt, or a stir fry dish. It comes with a recipe book with ideas. It is very easy to use, having arrived at the end of a weekend, I came home on Monday to find my teenage son had used it to make chicken drumsticks (put the raw drumsticks in, press plus to the length of time wanted, and press start). I think there is barely a day it hasn't been used since. My youngest has even used it to make his version of chips (he hadn't quite got the shape, but the principal was there). The machine is plugged in, and the front has a fold down handle. The bowl is quite substantial, and you can easily cook sufficient for a family of 4-6 with it. I love the fact it has been so readily embraced by my teenagers. t is easy to clean, as the central bowl lifts out, and then the turning paddle can be removed to clean. Both are easy clean items - no scrubbing required.

The only downside for some families may be the space required - and the need for it to be within a couple of feet of a socket, in order to plug it in. But this is an ideal kitchen device, which I've found really handy.


Look Good Feel Better Flawless Complexion Sponge
Look Good Feel Better Flawless Complexion Sponge
Price: £7.34

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 12 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a sponge for applying foundation or other make up. There is a blunt end, for wide areas, and a tip for finer parts of the face. Its very soft, so you get a smooth application. Its made for Look Good Feel Better, a worldwide charity which gives support for women and teenagers struggling with the visible side effects of cancer treatment, and money from purchases goes towards their work. I did find the cats also loved this - which wasn't the aim, but I had to rescue it after they decided it would make a great toy.

I would recommend this - its great for applying foundation, and supports charity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short Cartridges Good Fit Great Blue by Waterman [Paris], 10 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pack of 6 [six] short ink cartridges in a wonderful Waterman blue that will be the envy of those that read your prose and the bane of any information governance types who obsess over black ballpoint.
Perfect for capturing free flowing thoughts on real paper with a fountain pen, these cartridges from Waterman [Paris] are short and are therefore suitable for short barrelled pens.

Laptop-Accessories4u 2009-2010 Model Apple MacBook Pro 15-Inch Unibody A1286 Trackpad / Touchpad with Cable

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile replacement should you need one., 10 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My Late 2009 unibody macbook pro was rendered unusable after battery swelling cracked and immobilised the trackpad.
Out of warranty and described as unrepairable by apple - online sources suggested that replacement of track pad and battery wasn't technically too difficult - so I gave it a go.
It worked for me, restoring my macbook to full function.
This track pad seems a straight like for like replacement - except I didn't use the supplied ribbon cable as I couldn't easily access the main-board - careful removal of the ribbon cable from the rear of the old trackpad and reattachment to the new pad worked fine.
Supports all the functions and gesture features of the original track pad - a worthwhile replacement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good matched replacement - works fine, 10 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent replacement A1321 battery for a late 2009 15 inch unibody macbook pro.
The original battery had swollen to about two and a half times it's thickness, displacing and cracking the touch pad, and finally making the thing unbootable.
Way out of warranty and strangely described as irreparable by apple - I thought it worth the effort and cost to try to repair myself following advice posted on the iFixit website.
I also bought a replacement track pad Laptop-Accessories4u 2009-2010 Model Apple MacBook Pro 15-Inch Unibody A1286 Trackpad / Touchpad with Cable.
The battery comes with the required tri-wing and phillips screwdrivers required for replacement.
In use this battery is at least as good as the original in terms of charging and holding charge.
I don't know how long it will last - but so far - well worth it!

Needed these tri-wing bits to operate on my ailing macbookpro and the smaller sizes of these bits worked a treat.
Nice little set of bits that will fit a standard hex driver.

5.0 out of 5 stars VicTsing WiFi display dongle - Great little device to screen cast your mobile display to a bigger screen., 10 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for displaying iPad [iPad pro ios 9+] and Windows phone [Lumia denim Windows phone 8.1 Jan 2015] on a big screen that doesn't have built in DNLA or WiFi connectivity.
The dongle connects to your screen through an HDMI socket and comes with an additional short cable to help with this in case the spare HDMI socket on your screen is hard to get to.
The dongle needs a USB to mini USB lead to be connected to supply power.
Not all screens / TVs with a usb socket supply the necessary power - you can use a mains adapter [not supplied].
You need to pair up / connect the dongle through your devices wifi settings in iOS - project my screen in windows phone.
The software built into the dongle is selectable for the device you are screen-casting from by pressing the button on the dongle accordingly.
Your screen needs to have speakers for audio output over HDMI to work - even then it appears to be app dependant- powerpoint, keynote and video ran fine for me on iOS - video output from windows phone also.
Works with fairly minimal set up - would buy this brand again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool - nice bright white light - and low operating temperature., 10 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cool - nice bright white light - and low operating temperature.
All the light comes out the front of the unit compared to many of the older halogen types - good for spotlight / highlight.
For fittings that take more than one bulb you may wish to change all at once.
