4.0 out of 5 stars Ultrasport bike shorts, 22 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well made stretchy bike shorts with colour contrasting detail and mesh side panels. Good wide waistband with drawstring adjustment, and a (very small) zipped pocket just below the waistband at the rear which would be ideal for a key, a few coins or notes. The seating pad is very comfortable and falls in just the right place for me. Good length in the leg, finishing just above my knees. Have to say though that they are a VERY snug fit and the waistband sits very low compared to other makes I own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pet Hair Vacuum, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant little unit that is so much more effective at removing pet hair than our (expensive) upright vacuum cleaner. Good length of power cord that allows us to cover a flight of stairs and landing with ease, and a very comfortable to hold handle with on/off switch at the end so your thumb can easily work it
Comes with two attachments - one is flexible rubber with little knobbly fingers on it that disturb hairs etc as you move it across the area being cleaned, while the other is a more rigid plastic slot for 'bits'. Easy to interchange simply by pressing a button on the casing and releasing before clicking the new attachment in place.
The rubbish is collected in a transparent plastic bin, protected by a washable screen filter, and the instructions recommend emptying this every time you use it to maintain suction, which makes sense.
Easy to handle, not too heavy, flexible enough to work on small, curved areas and very effective in use, getting cat and dog hairs out of carpets, off duvet covers, cushions and car upholstery, and it's almost frightening how much you can see coming out even after a good hoovering with our Dyson.
Delighted with this and thoroughly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Hozelock 25 metre hose reel, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Free-standing hose reel with 25 metres of decent quality plastic 1/2 inch hose that is quite flexible and easy to wind/unwind. Some self-assembly required to use the reel to its full potential, which is pretty straighforward. Kit comes with a threaded tap fitting and adaptor if you don't already have one on your outside tap, and an 'auto-stop' push-lock connector for the business end of the hose, that stops the flow if there is no nozzle or spray attachment fitted - great idea that saves you going back to the tap to turn it off if you want to change attachments mid job.
The hose attaches to the reel by means of a fitting in the hub (you have to lever the plastic hub plate off with a screwdriver to get to it) and there is a long spring that fits inside the hose at this junction to prevent kinks when in use, and ensures a good flow even if the hose is only partly unwound.
In addition there are two push-lock fittings supplied for you to make a connection from your tap to the reel - of course you will need to sacrifice some of your hose to make this, alternatively spend a few quid more to get one ready made (I did)
So, it works well, no leaks, good length of hose for the garden and washing the car, and good value for money - I'm very pleased with this

5.0 out of 5 stars Hozelock connection set, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ready-made connection set to save you having to sacrifice some of your hose reel, and worth every penny in my opinion. Good strong 1.5 metre plastic hose with push-lock connectors at each end, along with a threaded tap fitting and adaptor if you need one. Fitted my existing outside tap with no problems or leaks and connects to my Hozelock reel quickly and easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Fire HD 8.9" slip-case, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nicely finished faux leather simple slip case for my Kindle Fire HD 8.9". In dark brown with an unobtrusive embossed 'O' logo in one corner and lined in a soft micro-fibre material. The Kindle slides smoothly into the case but is a snug enough fit that it's not going to fall out.
Simple, effective, looks very smart and not at all bulky - I'm very pleased with this and would thoroughly recommend

5.0 out of 5 stars Super SanDisk, 6 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I always buy SanDisk storage media these days as I have been very pleased with the reliability and robustness of their USB sticks, and this is no exception. I never thought you would be able to fit 32GB storage into such a small package, and that is where it is almost too successful for its own good as it would be very easy to lose. However, you could safely leave it in situ in a laptop or tablet as it hardly protrudes at all. As other reviewers have noted, the read/write speed is not the fastest, but I use this as a 'master' resource of powerpoint presentations that I deliver in my work, along with other documents so once they're on, they're on and access speed thereafter isn't that important to me.
Back to keeping it safe, there is a tiny metal loop set into the end of the drive, to which you can attach a very small split ring or a cord connector, to put it on a key-ring or attach to a badge lanyard etc.
Delighted with this, and thoroughly recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars Yankee Candle Car Gel, 6 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quality car air freshener with a subtle vanilla/lavender scent that is quite relaxing and not at all overpowering as some can be. Good value' three for two' presentation, individually sealed. Nicely packaged, easy to open and with an elastic cord to slip over your driving mirror. Very pleased with these, but they just don't last long enough !

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality road atlas, 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nicely presented leather-bound atlas updated with current mapping. Each page is titled with a broad description of the area covered, which is helpful if you are looking quickly for somewhere, and there are plenty of additional resources such as very clear town/city plans, tourist and other key destinations such as services and airports, as well as postcode links that you can use for satnavs. Mapping is good and clear, OS 3.2 miles to the inch standard, and I am very pleased with what is a very well finished, user-friendly and comprehensive source of information all in one place. I have the 2010 version that has been well used but still looks good as new, which bodes well for this edition

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great, 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in this trilogy, so read this with a sense of high anticipation, and in many ways it didn't disappoint, leading up to a (fairly predictable) conclusion of sorts and leaving the door wide open for further developments. Duncan swaps between characters to relate each chapter from their own perspective, and that I like very much. The main characters are drawn well and you can certainly feel an empathy with both the werewolf (Tallulah) and the vampire (Remshi) but I felt that many of the supporting players were pretty one-dimensional. Many of the 'hide/chase/escape (or not)' sequences are repeated right out of the second book in the series, and I have to say that I found the constant sexual references unnecessary and in some instances even detracting from the narrative, but the violence (certainly not for the squeamish) is well handled with a leavening of wry humour to take the edge off what would otherwise be a relentless gore-fest.
So, in summary; glad I read it, but could have been better and felt a bit rushed.
