A large selection of decent O ring seals. Enabled me to do the job I wanted done. Only gave 4 star rating as a lot of the seals are tiny ones

They did the job, and are good value. The plastic is not particularly strong as expected for the price. A faiirly good fit on my Ford Focus.


Existence
Existence

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful and different, 13 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Existence (Paperback)
This deals with first contact with alien forms. Brin paints a different scenario from usual - surprisingly different and imaginative and an excellent book. This is Brin's best book so far, his early Uplift books I would rate as 4 star and the later ones 3 star

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading as a precursor of The Fall of Hyperion, 21 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A well written book but drifted around without reaching any conclusions. I recommend sticking with it to prepare for reading The Fall of Hyperion which is a superb 5 star book. Together both books make one good long coherent story. I wonder why Hyperion alone won a Hugo award

4.0 out of 5 stars A good effective product, 21 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Enabled effective stacking of Electrolux washing machine and spin dryer. Made of plastic but quite a tough plastic. Thankfully a strong nylon belt (supplied in the kit) is wrapped around both machines to avoid movement. No slippage/movement in 4 months so far.

Reception on this phone is excellent, unlike previous mostly BT models. Retains charge for a long time. Answerphone good/simple. Number storage is better than most phones although on occassions the instructions are necessary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Far far better than Windows 8, 21 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delighted that this system is still available. Then paid for PC World to delete Windows 8 on a new PC and install this. We now have an ultrabook that works properly. Avoid buying anything with Windows 8!!!


Shadow Puppets: Book 3 of the Shadow Saga
Shadow Puppets: Book 3 of the Shadow Saga
by Orson Scott Card
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars A fairly good read, 21 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another competent story from Orson S. Card - worth reading without being anything special. Concludes Bean's story on earth before he departs with family to the stars.
