5.0 out of 5 stars Great Family Game, 18 Dec 2014
This review is from: Chromino Game (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This game is simple, like all the best ideas, and is easy for quite young children to learn. Basically it's dominoes with colours instead of numbers, and with the same objective of placing all your pieces on the table, the winner is the player who runs out of tiles being the winner. It's the kind of game where kids can defeat their elders, which makes it great family fun. Recommended.

I was amazed by what a tiny tin of cards I received. For the price paid, I think it's a right royal rip-off

This has been in use for a while and I'm pleased with it. It works well and fits so neatly in the socket I can close the ashtray with it fitted.

We have three of these lanterns as a standby for power cuts. They give out very little useful light, but they'll be priceless when we need them.

Very disappointed. There are lots of husks among the seed, which was not exactly the idea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Classy - Honest!, 17 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Inexpensive and simple, this LED 'cherry tree' looks surprisingly classy in subdued light, if rather tacky in the cold light of day. Wifey and I think it's great for eight quid, and it will come out of the box again next Christmas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entirely About Looking Good, 17 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This set is every bit as impressive as the photos show, really quite beautiful and far too posh for my kitchen. Of course the product is entirely about looking good, The disappointingly lightweight jars aren't airtight enough to keep herbs fresh and I doubt a serious cook would buy them for their own use, in any case it would be a hideously expensive way to obtain herbs and spices.

The applications for it I see are as either a showpiece in a suitably magnificent kitchen or as very fine present, but someone who likes to cook will want better storage jars and - crucially - to choose their own ingredients.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth The Price, 17 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This little device is surprisingly good for the price, it does the basic hands-free job reasonably well.

Pairing with my phone (Moto G) was simplicity itself; on powering up it tells you - in a very loud voice that makes you jump! - that it's ready to pair, you find it in your phone's bluetooth list as C1, and select it. That's it, job done, no code to input. Call quality is not brilliant but is loud enough to hear above road noise, and its battery charge seems to last and last, certainly through the length of a working day.

So if you're looking for a simple hands-free kit and don't want to spend a lot of money, then I'd say go for it. For what it costs it can't be seriously faulted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Nails, 14 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's very difficult to write a rave review of nails, and I'm not going to try. These Tacwise nails are almost exactly an inch long, if you can't visualise 25mm, and formed of 18 guage wire, so if they were separate pins rather than a strip you'd have problems driving them with a hammer without bending them. As requested by the supplier I tested the nails in a Tacwise 0327 191EL nail gun, a chunkily impressive tool they also provided. BTW, if you've never usued a nail gun before, be aware that the head will mark soft wood, leaving a shallow dent even if the gun's exit nozzle has a rubber mask . Nail guns are not for the finest work.

Applications for nails such as these are manifold, but my principle use for them is fixing plywood sheet to supporting framework and that's how I put them to the test. As always when I've used a nail gun I finished the job by giving each nail a tap with a punch and hammer to bury the head. This isn't really necessary, especially for outside jobs, but provides a satisfying neatness. They fed through the gun fine, and I only experienced one nozzle jam, but I have to say that such stoppages are all part of the fun with nail guns. Let me add here that jam clearing is easy with the Tacwise 0327 191EL because the nozzle gate opens without tools.

In conclusion then, these Tacwise nails are of more than adequate quality, but in all honesty I can't say they're better than others I've used.
