4.0 out of 5 stars nothing wrong with the pump... exactly as ..., 20 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
nothing wrong with the pump...exactly as advertised.

Just be careful the pump is shipped with the presto type fitting (as advertised) if you need the schraeder type (car tyre) then you're going to have a buy the adaptor......not such a bargain anymore.

My own fault for not reading the item description properly before buying

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Battery Life, 9 Oct. 2014
this is day 3 of normal use and the battery is still showing 52% charge left....amazing,

The rest of the phone is great too, no complaints so far, in fact probably the best 'techy' thing I've bought in years.

My only negative is the amount of bloatware that comes loaded on the phone from Sony....but apart from that this is (IMHO) the best phone on the market presently

Good job Sony.

1.0 out of 5 stars look at alternatives, 30 Dec. 2013
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The work bench looks great, but that's where it stops.

You get a good enough selection of tools, and about a dozen nuts/bolts, but only 2 (yes 2) bits of plastic wood.

Now there's only 2 ways you can bolt 2 pieces of wood together so the novelty of this product wears off quicker than you can say the word novelty. So the fun factor of this toy is pretty much zero.

Annoyingly after an extensive search on the internet it appears you can't buy more 'plastic wood' to give the toy a bit more life before the boy gets bored to tears so it has been sent back.

Pro's. looks good, vice and hand tools are decent enough
Con's. playability is limited to about 5 minutes, the drill press is pathetic, the noise pad thing is pointless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't fault it,., 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is as good as any Paslode or other gas fired nailer I have used..... but at a fraction of the price.

A slight niggle is the batteries are a real PITA to remove, but apart from that its perfect.

I've just completed a timber frame house (5 boxes of 90mm nails)and I've had a couple of misfire and one jam....that's impressive

Just a word of caution, be careful of the gas used in the gun, it'll take all leading brands of gas / nails, but I found this works the best using Firmahold gas (especially in winter as the gas is rated to -5)

5.0 out of 5 stars magic, brilliant, fantastic, superb !!, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In case you can't tell I am over the moon with this product.....its made swimming so much less boring.

i enjoy swimming immensely and its a great way to stay in shape, but up and down 50 lengths 3 times a week really does become the most boring chore ever, now at least I'm distracted from this chore and swimming has become fun again.....just remember not to sing along otherwise you may find yourself coughing up chlorinated water :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter plastic rubbish, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unfortunately I can't give it less than 1 star.

In essence this is the cheapest nastiest piece of plastic chinese cr@p on the market.

Both clips snapped off the very first time it was used resulting the the thing having to be cable tied to the head rest.

The hinge mechanisms isn't strong enough to hold a 10" screen meaning that the tablet constantly tilts down every 2 minutes regardless of how tight you try and do the screws up.....JUST RUBBISH

Don't waste your money, you'd get considerably less frustration is you threw your money down the drain.

I cannot even begin to describe how bad this product is with resulting to the use of a lot of expletives

AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, 19 April 2013
Did I mention these were brilliant ??

For the price you won't find better. Had broken glass, rubble, and general household garden waste in these and they have performed great without ripping, splitting or coming apart at the seams.

Quite possible the best rubble sack I have used in a long time

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, 3 April 2013

After trying numerous 'claimed' LED dimmers only to be disappointed I can hand on heart say this one works a treat and does actually dim low draw circuits without buzz or flicker.

Does exactly what it says on the tin, my only grumble is the terminal screws are very small and you need a really small screwdriver to fit properly . .. but this is no different to other brands
