Waterproof Wireless Solar Motion Detection Sensor Light 16 LED Wall Illuminate Garden Yard Lamp
Waterproof Wireless Solar Motion Detection Sensor Light 16 LED Wall Illuminate Garden Yard Lamp
Offered by A FOR LIFE
Price: 9.20

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and a quality product, 1 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good light source which brightens when you get close. It is substantially brighter than the cheap-n-cheerful variety in many garden centres and discount shops.
Very easy to fit and set up, a couple of screws and a prod with the on/off needle and it's going.
Recommended and the seller shipped it very quickly from China - took about 8 days.

This review is from: BMW Z3 Tailgate Struts PAIR (X2)
Potential loss of fingers prompted me to buy new struts for the boot. These items were cheaper than OEM or non-OEM equivalents on the famous "marketplace site".
They were easy to fit and work fine - fingers safe.


Russell Hobbs 15081 Steamglide Iron in White and Blue - 2400 W
Russell Hobbs 15081 Steamglide Iron in White and Blue - 2400 W
Price: 19.97

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the hottest iron, not the best quality, 14 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hmm, might just be worth the 13 I paid, but not the supposed 30 RRP (yeah I know, it's made up by the marketing men to convince us of its value proposition etc).
I guess if Amazon (and other resellers) are making a tidy profit at the 13 price point, then the manufacturing bill must be around 5 before the various middlemen and shippers add their bit. The cost of 5 shows, frankly. The heat-setting dial is poorly marked, awkward and easy to knock, the hot plate isn't hot and hardly glides (not a true "Steamglide", then?).
I've relied on the RH brand a few times in last 5-6 years (eg 2 vacuums from Argos; both failed with smokin' motors in 18m-2yrs) and none have wowed me. Another well-known and respected brand relying on past glories, I fear.
Maybe I would have been better off finding an iron with RRP of 60 (whatever..), true price-point of 30 and at least have got 10+ worth of manufacturing effort and parts quality built-in.
Last words come from the Pack Leader - "Was this another of your bargain buys?" Rumbled. Again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable and very blue, 14 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife has been a regular NB or K-Swiss buyer for tennis shoes as they seem to be well designed for sports users, fit well and last ages (unlike many of the mass-market big name brands' fashion orientated offerings); now time for daughter to try one of the brands. These trainers are apparently very comfortable and are "very blue" - as opposed to the on-line picture which has a hint of blue/purple about it - luckily daughter likes blue...
Good price via Amazon; most shops/websites want over 40.

Price: 10.92

5.0 out of 5 stars Amusing, 14 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Me and Mrs Jones [DVD] (DVD)
Bought under duress from daughter who has a thing about the lanky Irish lad (not complaining, as I rather like Ms Alexander..). Easy watching and is probably one of the better modern sit-coms.
DVD arrived quickly & well packed.


Nilfisk C110 4-5 X-Tra Pressure Washer with 1400W Motor
Nilfisk C110 4-5 X-Tra Pressure Washer with 1400W Motor
Price: 59.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good washer, 14 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good pressure washer, easy-to-store nozzles, good length cable. It was on an Amazon daily deal for 50, so a no-brainer. Out-guns kids on their puny super-soakers too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good watch, very helpful seller, 31 July 2013

Bought for son's birthday; seller was truthful about minor scratches prior to despatch and adjusted price accordingly. I can think of many sellers who would have sent it without inspection and left us to find the flaws etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very warm, good option to North Face, 3 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for No.1 son (aged 19) who normally refuses to wear "proper coats" despite low temperatures; he loves it but now there's competition as it fits him, his younger brother and me and we all love it!
The Amazon price of around 55 means it's virtually half the cost of the similar North Face Nupta jacket; 2-for-1 works for me everytime.

NPW Shark Fun Shower Cap
NPW Shark Fun Shower Cap
Offered by The One Stop Kingdom
Price: 3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun cap, 19 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NPW Shark Fun Shower Cap (Toy)
A proposed gift from my daughter to one of her best friends...a trial run in our house indicates it will be well received by the friend at Christmas...not my choice, but for teenagers, a bit of a hoot. Seems adequately well made so a bit of a steal at this price. I'll FINish this review now before I think of any more puns.
