1.0 out of 5 stars Be careful what you stick it to., 5 Mar 2013
The description mentions Japanese micro suction pads. Watch out. They are extremely powerful and lifted the varnish right off my desk. Very annoying. This item would be handy if you had a nice plastic desktop to stick it to. It didn't work for me but could work for you. I would've given two stars but knocked off one for the very high price which seems to be a common factor in BlueLounge products.

23 Her Story - Adele 23 - Unofficial Interview Disc & Documentary

1.0 out of 5 stars AVOID!!! JUNK, UNOFFICIAL CD, 21 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
DO NOT BUY! I was duped by the presentation in Amazon into believing this was Adele's new release. It is rubbish! This is a rip-off of interviews - who'd pay for that? There is no music. Mine's away back for a refund, avoid the hassle and do not buy it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Naughty naughty!, 15 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of course I should've been more careful and read the reviews. But like a few others I saw Caro Emerald, release day Oct 2012! The new album - I'm having it! It's a wee bit disappointing to have a collection of others songs sold as "Caro Emerald Presents..." since she's only involved in one song. Not much to show for a year's work there. I wouldn't have bought this if I'd browsed upon a classic jazz hits album. The album appears to be something else and I feel tricked.
I'd love to have a new Caro Emerald album though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional facsimile at bargain price., 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is the facsimile of the book Michael Portillo uses in his latest (2012) railway television series. If you liked that and we're intrigued by the original 1913 book he carries everywhere you will be delighted with this very thick book. Twice as thick as a phone book and nicely printed the good quality is also enhanced by the fold-out coloured maps and also the large separate coloured map in a clever pocket inside the front cover. This takes you right into 1913 Europe just before the First World War changed everything. For 16 this is very reasonable, treat yourself!
Also Amazon's delivery was like lightning.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK, but lacking in design, 20 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This iPhone 4/4S case fits properly. The long slot on the side properly accommodates the different positions of the mute/vol up/vol down buttons of the two phones unlike many. This case is made of really chunky, thick silicone cushioning the back and all the sides very well. But the point of this case is the tyre tread pattern. It's funny. A joke. But the makers need to show they know the joke, and they missed the tread pattern so it's awful. The attempt at a tread pattern doesn't resemble any tyre, it's just a hash. So try the Case Mate version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rotten book. Crazy price!, 18 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Beatles In Mono (Paperback)
I made the mistake of buying this five days before MaxiMoog's accurate review and having been mislead by the Amazon.com reviews - were they referring to the same book? MaxiMoog rightly criticises this terrible pile of tripe and I want to highlight that it is very poorly written including blithely dismissing many tracks. That is useless in a book of this nature, it turns it into a selective review rather than a 'track by track' analysis as described. I'm embarrassed to admit that I wasted so much money on this garbage, please save youselves from the same!

1.0 out of 5 stars Simply disastrous - damages pens!, 28 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
WARNING! This case damaged my Lamy 2000 ballpoint. Although it is smooth shiny leather, albeit stiff, on the outside it is abrasive on the inside. This has made permanent marks on my pen after just one insertion. Now, the Lamy 2000 has a matte surface by design and polished metal Lamys or enamelled ones may stand up better but the abrasion may scratch them.
My recommendation: avoid!


Gerber Recon Task Light Torch
Gerber Recon Task Light Torch
Price: 22.75

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy for its purpose, 9 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're looking for a tactical floodlight to illuminate a battlefield keep looking, this dainty little thing's useful but it's not for that. The white light is super-clean white but strictly for close quarter lighting, in fact, tasks just like it says in the name! The red filter swings round and with red light your night vision is protected also there is a flat edge on the filter rim at this point so you can feel it's the correct one in place before you even turn the torch on. The pocket clip slides off without scratching if you want rid of it and the hole in the end cap'll let you string on a short lanyard for better handling. This is a very well made torch for a specific purpose and you'll be amazed at the tiny size. The fact that it runs on a single AA (supplied) and a LED means massive economy too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant gadget, essential office kit, 9 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This indispensable office product is very hard to find in metal-ended form these days (the plastic versions are terrible - they always burst). These are the dog's bits. Look no further, your papers are going to stay in the order you put them. Now where did I put that hole punch?...

5.0 out of 5 stars Super reasonable mats, 29 May 2012

Very reasonable, in fact amazing value. Just fitted tonight and they look great replacing the manufacturer's worn-out old things. Very happy so far.
