4.0 out of 5 stars great little laptop, perfect for students and younger kids., 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
so light it is easy to carry, so small you can slip it almost anything, and a bargain considering it comes with Ms Office 2013 for students inclucing word, excel, powerpoint. The pinky red was described on other sites as red, so took a gamble. It isn't red at all, it is pink. Can't fault it at the price we got it at, but don't rely on it as a main laptop.

4.0 out of 5 stars fits like an original one, 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wasn't aware when purchasing my new lens that it already came with one of these. replacement one is fair quality, not as good as original, but is a useful spare. So cheap it was worth having to keep in the gadget bag just in case.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad., 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not bad for the price quickly need recharging, and after less than 12 months both were leaking contents out from a poorly fitting case. Didn't fancy going through the hell of constant recharging and leaving hot surface open for little fiddling fingers, so bought a dehumifier instead.

They didn't seem to get much moisture out of the caravan, and having to remember to recharge them every few days was a bind.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bought it for my 70+ year old father, he still calls me to find out how to do things, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was hoping an easy guide would get used by me father, but no, he stills me up first. I had a read, and it goes through the basics in very bland manner. Does what it says on the cover, but in my particular case may be more useful to bang my head against.

I'm not a massive fan of the "dummies" series, they are good to start you off, but quickly you outgrow them. This one is no exception, would be nicer to see link to examples or tutorials included to get you a bit further.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its a mains lead. Hard to get excited about, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It fits what intended it for, and it conducts electrons from one end to the other with no fuss. Fits all my figure 8 devices, and has decent quality UK moulded plug on the end. Does the job, what more is there to say about a mains lead?

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic. Replaces some vey cheap older one and is much better, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely fantastic mug. Keeps drinks hotter for much longer than my previous cheap alternative. Good for an hour or thereabouts. great seal, so much so that if you knock it over while full (which I have done on several occasions, ahem), then all it spills is about a spoonful.

You won't regret buying this, it is so much better than those cheap imitations.

3.0 out of 5 stars product okay, seller not that good at comminicating, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had to email seller to say the supplied one was faulty. I got what was labelled as 4, 6 and 8 pointed filter, but when I looked at the masking on the 8 point, it looked to me like a 6 point. (and was not very good quality engraving on face of filter). Had to email the seller about half a dozen times, and take photo's with each to demonstrate that the 8 point was a 6 point in disguise. To the sellers credit, after about the 6th email they asked if I wanted a reduced price, but I wanted the 3 filters, so after about another 3 emails, another set arrived, and the 8 point actually was an 9 point filter the second time. Seller didn't send me an address to return the faulty item, so if they read this, send it on and i will send back the other items, only the 8 point was actually faulty.
Oh, just to round up the second batch were better quality glass and engraving.

4.0 out of 5 stars Would be even better if it was just a smidge bigger, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Product looks much more expensive than a tenner. Works a treat, nice not to have any annoying device drivers and software to install. feels good in the right hand, would be a complete no-no for a left hander.

Can't state about battery life, but one improvement would be to make the on-off switch a little bigger and make it obvious which way is on or off. The underside emits no red light, so to see if it's on you have to make sure it's off, then switch the mouse on from underneath whilst looking at the top. No big thing, but could be an improvement.

Braun Oral-B Professional Care 2000 Two-Mode Rechargeable Toothbrush

4.0 out of 5 stars battery life seems to get worse on each iteration of Braun toothbrushes we get, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
plus points:
quick charge, good speed, and generally great cleaning without paying silly amounts.

negative points
only one - battery life seems poor. Only two days for two of us, so can last a short weekend break, but no more. Seems to be every iteration of these the battery gets worse (or is it just the brushes need more power)

Anyway, you won't regret buying one. We are on our 4th or 5th one now.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a difference in sound, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was initially skeptical about these, but needn't have been they really bring the sound in tight on snare or toms. snare sounded a bit crashy, but place these little gems on (used 2) and it became immediately obvious that the sound was much improved. Reduce some of the tom boom without losing attack, and they can be placed topside or bottom side to get the desired effect you are after. Amazing the difference they actually make.
