Purina Pro Plan Medium Puppy with Optistart Dry Dog Food Rich in Chicken 3 kg
Purina Pro Plan Medium Puppy with Optistart Dry Dog Food Rich in Chicken 3 kg
Price: £11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Crunched up happily by our micro-dog, 16 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Our dog is no longer a puppy, but a 3 yr old Italian greyhound (for those not in the know, essentially a dachshund on stilts). But reluctant to eat kibble probably because it's a bit tough no her tiny jaws.

But in the week we've been using this its all gone after every meal. It smells very meaty (not unpleasantly) and it has a sticky texture, so presumably a little softer than the really dried out kibbles out there.

But whatever the reason, the dog loves it and this does seem to have cracked for us getting her onto dried foods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice quality paper at a bottom end price, 16 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nicely finished, good quality paper. 80gsm ( ie, 80 grams per square metre) is pretty much the standard for office paper, thick enough to feel like reasonable quality but not too flimsy or too thick to jam the copier. It gives a decent result on inkjet printers, the mainstay of the home office.

This is a good quality paper, but in the end it's going to come down to price, as there are numerous other essentially similar papers out there. Through Amazon market place 5 reams (ie, 5 packets of 500 sheets) can be had for £17 delivered. That's near the bottom of the price range and much less than the brands (HP and so on).

So with price and quality both right, this gets a full recommendation from me.

Mitre Tactic Training Football - White/Red/Black, Size 5
Price: £9.59

5.0 out of 5 stars decent quality football at a reasonable price, 9 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
my son is always happy to get a new football, and this one was especially well received.

The Mitre brand name, goes without saying as a marker of quality. Beyond that this is a reasonable price for a good quality footballand has stood up so far to the considerable abuse it has already received very well indeed.

As a bonus it is more or less an Arsenal colours!


Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book 2016
Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book 2016
by Hugh Johnson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £6.94

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential and at a bargain price, 9 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is now, and always has been, a fantastic pocket guide. However at the current Amazon Price of £3.99 it is an absolute no-brainer!

It is a quick reference book for someone who is already interested in and properly knows a moderate amount about wine. To a novice the endless lists are probably more confusing than helpful, although the brief introductions to different wine nations and wine styles are great little essays to start you off.

It has quirks: inevitably the coverage of some areas is better than others. It groups sherry, Madeira, and port together; find to put them in a single chapter but to run them altogether when they are such individual drinks diminishes the otherwise exemplary clarity of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why go elsewhere?, 27 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A does what it says on the tin product!

in essence:
- a sturdy well made cable with decent connectors either end
- a sensibly low price
- reliably "amazon" branded

why go elsewhere?

4.0 out of 5 stars A great resource for plumbing the depths of Windows 10, 27 Dec. 2015
This review is from: Windows 10 Bible (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a useful doorstep of a book. WIndows 10, although different inside to its predecessors looks similar in most important respects, but has a number of different functions and ways of doing things from previous versions.

If you need help to work out what to do with your new software (which i like - WIndows 10 feels a much more comfortable & familiar interface to work with than 8 ever did (there is no 9!)). certainly this book is miles ahead of microsofts own online help, which is often anything but helpful.

This book is a great resource if you want or need to move beyond everyday and basic windows functions (although the basics are there too if you need them)


AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI 2.0 Cable - 3m / 10 Feet (Latest Standard)
AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI 2.0 Cable - 3m / 10 Feet (Latest Standard)
Price: £5.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent cable, Reliable "Amazon" brand and sensibly low price, 27 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is very much a "does what it says on the tin" item. Its a long HDMI cable, generally appears to be good quality and inexpensive.
the heavy rubber casing is not particularly attractive (but for me this is all about function - i don't care what it looks like).

All in all this is a decent cable for a low price and reliably "amazon" branded. - Look no further

5.0 out of 5 stars good value LED bulb, 28 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
good LED bulb at sensible price (even more via the multipacks)

certainly seems to live up to the claimed brightness (and perhaps more) - I have heard that LEDs fade with time - if this is true it may be manufacturers make them brighter initially to allow for the later fade - can anyone comment if this is true?

Not clear from amazon description if this will work with dimmer: check with manufacturer if this is important to you

long life claimed and 3 year guarantee seems to justify this

5.0 out of 5 stars good value and a good long term power saving, 28 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
LED bulbs are coming down in price and up in brightness. Unlike compact fluourescents they come on at full brightness instantly and are a good power saving over those, and even more over incadescent bulbs.

This particular one will not work with a dimmer - others can - usually cost a little more - so chekc if that matters for where you will be using it.

Otherwise - what's not to like - a cheap light providing very cheap illumination
