Prompt delivery as promised (standard post). Works beautifully and even without heating the fleece underlay is surprisingly warm. Bought the King size which fits very well. Now we are set for the Scottish winter if it ever comes.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Master Work, 5 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aurora (Kindle Edition)
A difficult book but immensely rewarding. An exploration of physics, philosophy, linguistics,ecology, psychology, sociology, anthropology and the nature of consciousness set in a generation ship theme stood on its head. Not a message that we SciFi readers expect to hear but so skilfully argued that what should be a depressing conclusion becomes life affirming. This may well be KSR's master work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent charger, shame about the mains socket., 24 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent piece of kit which does exactly what is claimed. There are many extensive favourable reviews to which I have little to add except for one small caution. The mains socket is a very loose fit and the connector is prone to fall out if moved accidentally. Since the active light is quite small it is too easy to find that the charger has been accidentally disconnected. Since I won't be using it for travel I intend to fix that with a small drop of superglue. If travelling I suppose a bit of adhesive tape would be a worthwhile precaution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative, 23 May 2014

Very informative, nicely presented, high quality printing. An excellent back up to seeing the exhibition. Reasonably priced for an Art book of this quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peace at last!, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very simple to install and operate. Works perfectly with not a single nuisance call getting through since we plugged it in. Bought on the basis of very favourable customer reviews. A few questions answered promptly by phone to CPR and via Amazon Answers by Kevin from CPR and customers. I do wish I had bought this call blocker years ago. We can now pick up the phone with confidence that we actually want to talk to the caller.

Confidence Gtr Power Pro Motorised Treadmill
Offered by The Sports HQ
Price: £199.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Modest requirement, 12 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a fairly fit road cyclist with a permanent limp which restricts my walking, I can get so far but then my foot gives up. I bought this so that I could walk in the garage until that point and then sit down, preferably with a cup of tea. This item is well made for the price, easily assembled and easy to operate. Runs smoothly and surprisingly quietly. HR function is reasonably accurate compared with my Garmin and Polar equipment. I have used gym-level treadmills and this compares very well, taking price into account. I haven't used the programs but they seem to cover the usual type of work out and offer a good variety. I'm happy with it, but then I'm not exactly pounding out the miles.

2.0 out of 5 stars No good for GPS, 12 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this item to use as a mount for my android phone when using it for in-car navigation. (Mondeo TitaniumX) Unfortunately the shelf angle is too near horizontal to allow me to see the GPS information. The product picture is misleading in this respect. It is not possible to alter the shelf angle. Would be useful for other purposes and sticky surface is good, hence 2 stars, but for my intended use with a GPS phone, zero stars.

A good quality sewing lamp with useful and well designed accessories - according to my wife. Easy to assemble and very stable. An alternative opaque shade to allow downlighting only would be a useful addition.

Brookmyre is one of my favourite authors of imaginative fiction. This does not disappoint. Favourite characters are revisited in wonderful "how can Brookmyre get them out of that?" plot lines. Combined with a historian's knowledge of stage maglc. A brilliant book.
