4.0 out of 5 stars Not That warm, 23 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfectly acceptable work gloves but not that warm even though they were supposed to be thermal gloves.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Automatic Stop is Worth the Extra Cost, 5 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well built mastic gun. The great thing about it is the auto stop mechanism. With normal mastic guns, the mastic keeps coming out of the nozzle when you stop squeezing. You have to let go of the front end of the gun and push the tab at the back to release the pressure to stop it. This gun has a clever system so that, as soon as you stop squeezing, the plunger is released and the mastic is no longer under pressure. That makes it worth the extra cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guarantee May Not Work, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This a well made planter which deserves its RHS best buy status. It works well. It comes with a 15 year guarantee BUT Solus Garden and Leisure Limited, which owns the Joseph Bentley brand and which is effectively giving the guarantee went into administration on 15th May 2014. The administrators are trying to sell the business. If they manage to sell the company, all guarantees will remain in place. If they sell the company's business, the new owners may well think it prudent to honour all guarantees. If the administrators fail to sell, the guarantees may well become worthless. Having said that, I would recommend the product even without a guarantee. I would expect that Amazon would probably honour a one year guarantee at their own expense.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK But Searching Could be Improved, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On Kindle the French libretto is fine but there is no way to jump quickly to the next scene. There is no direct access to a table of contents. There is a small index of scenes found by going back to the beginning and then going to the next page. Other than fancy search quesswork, its just a case of pushing the next page button over and over again. The libetto is readable and the French dictionary look-up works well. There is an English libretto as well. Its labled as "French - Italian" but I could only find French and English.

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to search, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On Kindle, searching for a particular place is difficult because too many results come up; every cross reference, not just the main reference which one would find in a book index. The maps are very difficult to handle on a Kindle.

This takes up far less room than the lead which came with the laptop. It packs away well and is far less likely to damage the computer.


Timeguard ZV700 Digital Security Light Switch

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't use with Energy Saving Bulbs, 23 Jan 2014
I have used one of these for many years with no real problems. However, do not use them with energy saving bulbs. If an ordinary tungsten bulb fails, the switch is not affected. I put a low wattage energy saving bulb in mine which seemed to work fine. However, I came home after some time away to find that the energy saving bulb had failed and was flashing on and off. I replaced it to find that it had wrecked the switch so that all the bulbs, even tungsten were flashing.

Trying to save money on energy saving has cost me the price of a new switch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 13 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a first class bit of kit. I spent a lot of time researching other products and none of them had specifications as good.
Under my kitchen worktop is a corner cupboard which gets next to no light. It used to be a real chore for us trying to find things in the dusk. It took about five minutes to fix up this light and it works perfectly. As soon as I put my hand in the cupboard, it lights up and we can find everything easily. When I shut the cupboard door, the light goes out in less than ten seconds. My wife thinks I am a genius!
