Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They look lovely. We wanted them for hanging dressing gowns on the back of the bedroom door, but they have been in use just over a month and the actual hook part has stretched - so not sure how long they will last, which is very disappointing as the previous hangers had been there for 15 odd years. They might be nice for hanging lingerie on (certainly won't support anything heavier without starting to straighten), but as working coat hangers they are overpriced and not fit for purpose.

This review is from: Lucy [Blu-ray] [2014] (Blu-ray)
Thought at first it might have been a mistake to see this film as the beginning seemed very 'basic', but once it starts to speed up, it is just mind blowing and leaves you wanting so much more.

Bought a few of these as they are handy to leave in various places so you don't have to carry a pair around. I chose this variety as I already have a pair which are great BUT for some reason these 3 pairs won't go back into their cases very easily, and one pair has bent in the process. I think it is the case that is at fault but can't see any difference to my original pair. Good but frustrating!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why do we have to wait till 2015, 31 Mar. 2014
With the new series scheduled to be filmed this autumn for screening in 2015, why do we have to wait till 27/3/15 for series 2 on DVD - far too long. This programme has the addiction level of Dr Who in our house - what more can I say! So will have to keep current series on the planner for re-watching until DVD appears.

1.0 out of 5 stars They shrink!, 3 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had to give these a 1star due to shrinkage. Bought 5 for my son (sizeM) from a different seller. My husband bought these ones (sizeL)not realising they were not from the same source. Although both sets appeared the same quality Fruit of the Loom and are labelled as such, the large ones have shrunk and are now too small even for my son, although they have all been washed and treated the same. Would suggest that a dodgy batch has crept in somehow.

Whole thing in another language, even the options on the menu, so had to try them all to get the thing to play in English - except it didn't! Whole thing dubbed - useless, or at least it is if you don't speak stopy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Potential, 29 Aug. 2012
As a coffee table book is looks great, but as a science book it is very irritating. Each element is given its own page with its 'statistics' on the right hand side, but the narative for each element ends with, for eg "...boron is not quite the frump you might expect from its name, it's really not in the same league as carbon." and "Hydrogen...most beloved by physicists...their lovely quantum mechanical formulas actually work exactly on it." For me, these and all the other such comments are just cringe worthy.

The layout and design of the book has so much potential, it is criminal to see it spoilt by such flippancy and a lack of objectivity.

A note to Amazon - just as I would expect to be told if a book was written in french, german, mandarin etc, is it not about time that we were told when a book is written in american rather than English!

Encyclopedia of Earthquakes and Volcanoes (Science Encyclopedia)
Encyclopedia of Earthquakes and Volcanoes (Science Encyclopedia)
by David Ritchie
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.95

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment, 29 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not so much an encyclopedia as a dictionary, and as such this volume is large and cumbersome. Individual entries do not link to other issues, and the entry on South Dakota starts "SD does not have an outstanding history of strong earthquakes......", so why mention it? In fact most US states get a mention, from what I can see, regardless of their value. Are the authors possibly American? My copy has headed to the recycle bank in favour of a proper handy dictionary.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a let down!, 11 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although not normally prone to writing reviews, the public needs warning about this one. We had the previous Avanti model, which was great, but it had to be replaced after an accident. This new model is a cheap plastic version of the previous one. The black that you see in the picture is a thin flimsy plastic, whilst the levers are silver painted plastic. Yes it makes it light-weight, so light-weight that if all four slices pop at the same time the toaster slides across the counter. Also, the high-lift function is ineffective and one side is already non-operational after seven weeks. It's one plus point - it toasts!

This product is an over-whelming disappointment after having its predecessor for several years. I would buy tefal again, but not mail order, or at least not until I was confident of the quality of the materials used in production. At 20 paces it looks fine, but does not stand up to close inspection.
