5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth buying vs the cheaper ones, 13 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this after trying a few of the cheaper ones... they worked OK for a week or two but then either fell apart or the performance deteriorated.
I've been using the GreatShield for a month or two and it works as well now as it did the first day.
Simple, effective, recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dyson... needs to keep more of an eye on quality, 4 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dyson have obviously decided that enough of us will buy their products even if they make them using cheap plastic that breaks within days of unboxing.
Yes, they replaced the part without complaint but it doesn't make the overall experience a good one and I hope engineers with pride regain control of the company before the managers/accountants run its reputation into the dust.
Bottom line, OK cleaner but Dyson's starting to suck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and exactly what was needed., 4 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to confess that I haven't tested the life of the battery but it's infinitely better than the one it replaced... and worth keeping a camera going for less than a tenner!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great little radio, 18 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When you get it out of the box and wind it up the reception may be a little disappointing... leave it in the sun or carry on winding and the reception will improve.
And sound quality is bigger than you'd expect from such a small unit.
Minor criticism: it could have more instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Little Sander, 21 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wish the sanding sheets were easier to find but that's my only niggle.
For jobs like sanding windows it's perfect and you'll be glad you bought it by the end of the first day.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book, 21 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK so it'll never teach you enough to be an economist but it does give you enough knowledge to make sense of the news and start to enable you to draw your own conclusions - economics is an art rather than a science.
If you enjoyed Freakonomics and it whetted your appetite for economics this book is a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick, stylish and easy to lose, 11 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to use in my car stereo but thought it might take a while to load with 50+ albums on it... only takes 5 or 6 seconds - v. impressed.
Great piece of kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading!, 11 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Prince (Hardcover)
Along with 'The Art of War' this is required reading for anybody embarking on a career of global domination.
A timeless classic that is surprisingly relevant to business today.

1.0 out of 5 stars Such a great idea... but the book isn't so great imho, 11 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I hesitate to criticise because I knew the book was written in the 70's, and in the style of the day, but I couldn't get beyond that.
I'm sure the book has hidden gems to impart but it just didn't encourage me to get stuck in to find them!
Anybody who has studied Aikido will appreciate it takes practice to achieve mastery - so I will be giving the book another try...
