2.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Time, 12 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Literally. I spent hours and hours trying to get this updated. First the firmware, then the maps. Looked ok, then kept telling me there were updates, plug in again and hours of updating only to read again that updates were available. Just for the US maps this isn't worth the hassle. Unless you travel in the US lots it's easier to hire one there or just download a map app. I have had Garmin sat navs before and not had this problem. Also, according to Garmin the 4"3 models are being phased out. The 5"models are so much easier to read, it's amazing how much bigger they seem.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was unsure..., 11 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a wonderful book, especially if you are unsure how you feel about the issue of gay marriage. It gave me so much more understanding of the issue. It written by an Episcopal Bishop, so it does have a Christian slant, but I must say it is more the slant that I grew up with - of openness and love - than prescriptiveness. As the author is both gay and married it is great to get his perspecitve on the whole issue. I have recommended this book to others, great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just right!, 11 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had a dashboard friction mount (or beanbag style to some) for a few years. It was OK, but you used the suction mechanism from the sat nav to stick to the mount, that's what made it universal. I found recently that the suction cup was coming unstuck regularly and falling off the dash, probably due to the weight of the sat nav. I decided to try this mount and I am so pleased I did! It has a slide in and lock mechanism that means no suction cup and it stays put. It also breaks down easily, so it can be stored flat. It's heavy enough to sit on the dash without moving and it seems really well built. I am very pleased!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for non-perfume types, 3 Mar 2013
I love this shower gel, because it doesn't overwhelm with scent! The scent is pleasant and natural, as the range is made up using natural essential oils in their products. No alcohol or synthetics used and therefore the scent, while pleasant, doesn't hit you. I hate shower gels that are so strong there is no point of using perfume afterwards. Does the job and another great product from SAAF.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!, 3 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this set to try the range after I stumbled across the cleanser in a lightning deal. The great thing about this is it gives the chance to try other products and find what I like. The complexion boost serum is great for me, with an oilyish skin. But I have tried the moisture one as well and that may be mixed into the routine. Great to try the other items like hair oil and lip, face and body balms. SAAF is a great range, all natural, with no alcohol or synthetic ingredients. I have sensitive skin and have had no problems. Looking forward to buying some of the full sizes now I have tried it. Oh, and it comes in a metal tin as well. Nice packaging.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not this time, 2 Mar 2013
I have used More Inks for a number of years and have always found their compatible products to be excellent. However, while these cartidges may be excellent, the price isn't. Amazon sells the real Canon ones for less. When the price comes down I will return to More Inks.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! Love it!, 2 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this when it was on a lightning deal, having never heard of SAAF before. I looked around elsewhere and found nothing but rave reviews, so completed the purchase. Wow, in my opinion the other reviews were right. This is lovely! The cleanser is an oil based balm that liquifies in your hands in seconds, only a little is needed. Massage it on and then wipe of with the cloth and warm water. I have sensitive,oily skin and this doesn't make it more oily, in fact it is balancing it very well. My skin doesn't feel tight or dry either. To me another important point about this cleanser and the whole range is that it is certified organic with no alcohol or synthetic ingredients. The essential oils are not ones that cause problems for sensitive skin and the fragrance is natural and very light. Made in the UK, it is approved by vegetarian, vegan, halal, and soil associations, should be used within 12 months of opening. I am following this with the complexion boost serum and am seeing great results already. The cloth is fine, though because it is natural cotton it does stain and is deliberately a bit rough for exfoliation. You can use any cloth I would suspect if this is not to your liking. Great product!

SPIGEN SGP Slim Armor Series Case for iPhone 5 / 5S Metal Slate color (OVER 15000 SOLD)

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice at a Price!, 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This came well packaged and very quickly. The case itself is well made, with hard plastic that looks like metal and softer rubbery bits for the sides, top and bottom. It does add a bit of weight and bulk to the phone. The bevelled edges mirror the iPhone 5's bevelled edges and the black and slate again looks fab on the black and slate phone. The package also comes with instructions of how to get the case off and 3 home screen button protectors that are better than I thought they would be. I can see this case lasting much longer than the cheap plastic ones. The 4 stars? One the price and two that it slides around on its back rather than has a rubbery grip, so it might slide and drop more easily.

3.0 out of 5 stars Make sure before you put it on!, 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, all I can say is make sure you like it before you put it on, because you're not going to be able to get it off without damaging the phone or the case or both. I made the mistake of putting it on, not hard, and then decided to clean the phone. Wrong! Took me ages to get it off! When it was on it looked OK, not bulky and is a hard plastic with a bit of rubber around the edges. It will get dirty though were the screen and case meet and that will be hard to clean. Well, at least there's no danger of the phone falling out of the case! OK for the price.
