5.0 out of 5 stars Great tasting Coffee Highly recomended., 21 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had this machine for a few weeks now and i am impressed.
Bought this to replace a Russell Hobs Filter Coffee maker thgat cost over twice the price. I am really impressed with how good this machine is. It produces a great tasting cup of coffee using my favorite coffee bean which it grinds before filtering. This machine produces up to 10 cups (Five Mugs) of fresh filter coffee.
Having a built in grinder is a real bonus as it makes less mess than using a seperate grinder and saves time too. the integrated grinder is a neat design and together with the perminent filter is easy to clean. You have the option to switch the grinder off if using ground cofee and there is also a timer function in case you wish to wake up to a fresh brewed coffee.
I have found that you really need to leave the coffee on the hot plate for around ten minutes once filtered through to allow time for the hot plate to heat it up properly otherwise the coffee tends to be too cool.
I would have liked the hot plate to have stayed on a little longer than 35 minutes before shutting off but that can be over come by switcing the machine on again (with the grinder off) should you need to keep your coffee hot for longer.
Over all this bean to cup machine represents great value and produces great tasting coffee. Highly recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars AVF Buckingham FSL 1000 3 in one TV Stand, 18 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had this cantilever stand for about 3 months now and bought it as part of a project for our front sitting room. It easily houses the DVD Player Naim Mu-So and record deck on the bottom half while supporting our Samsung 40 inch TV on the supplied cantilever bracket.
It is important that I point out that while AVF do the Buckingham in three different sizes, only this model comes with the optional detachable TV mount.
This stand comes flat packed but unlike most flat pack furniture it is well made from solid ply wood and finished with a real wood veneer. No chipboard here!. It went together quite easily and feels like a solid peice of furniture once put together. My only slight concern was when one of the cams which holds the cabinet together broke into several pieces when I was putting it together. Fortunately there are two spare ones supplied in the bag of fixings, otherwise this would have been a major headache.
The cabinet is an oval design making it perfect for use in a corner. The back to the cabinet hides any unsightly cables and there are pre- cut holes in the back for cable management.
As mentioned earlier this model has an optional cantilever bracket which gives you three options on how to mount your TV. As Pictured I used this mount which gives the illusion of a floating TV and frees up space on the cabinet top for other equipment.
There is an adjustable glass shelf in the cabinet which can be set at 3 different heights to accommodate different sized units such as a sound bar DVD player Satellite box etc.
Great value for the money.

Targus TCG200 CityGear Messenger Laptop Bag / Case fits 17.3 inch Laptops XL, Black / Grey

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made & well thought out design., 29 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can easily fit my Sony laptop with space for an I pad as well. An external rear compartment holds any paperwork/ folders etc. the main internal compartment is split into two & can easily take another laptop. Under the flap the front zip down compartment has room for the power supply , a mobile phone, portable drive & usb leads, pens & business cards. There is also a zip compartment in the flap with amble room for more cables or stationery. The Strap adjusts to a good length. The only downside is that the strap is fixed to one side of the bag with a plastic buckle to enable adjustment which may not prove to be as robust as the metal types used by other other manufacturers & so my may not stand up to repeated daily use hence only four stars. Should suit the my use perfectly. Excellent value for money

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor value for money, 10 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well this coffee maker looks good, but is no where near the build quality that its £90 price tag would suggest. It feels cheap & plastic y. Mine was supplied with a European two pin plug.
It makes coffee well enough & the Timer works well.
The detachable water reservoir is a great feature but this coffee maker has one major design floor. the spout on the carafe is badly designed & when you poor your coffee more is spilled over your worktop than ends up in the cup!
Poor value for money. Disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true Circular polarizer, 10 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unlike other cheaper Polarizing filters that I have purchased in the past which claim to be "circular Polarizing" this one actually works as it should. It does not render your auto focus useless! Trust Hoya a well established brand. made in japan.
don't waste your money on anything else,

2.0 out of 5 stars Automatic Discharge, 2 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had this Battery now for about two weeks. I took the plunge & bought it based on all the other reviews here on Amazon saying that it was almost as good as the Nikon original. It is not! The first thing I did was charge it. The 2nd thing I did was charge it again, two days ago. Already the battery meter on my D7000 is showing only 92% charged with no pictures taken since inserting this battery.
That means that since fully charging this battery is automatically discharging at a rate of 4% a day. Not what you want from a battery. You need to be able to rely on a battery holding its charge. This one will let you down! Yes it was cheap, but honestly I may as well have rolled up a £10 Note & set fire to it!
Do not waste your Money. Avoid like the plague!

3.0 out of 5 stars OK if you are on a tight budget, 14 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These square filters looked great value & were dispatched quickly by the market place seller. They are similar in size & design to the Cokin "P" series filters. You do get a lot for your money with 24 square filters 12 graduated & 12 solid, a filter holder & every conceivable sized lens adapter from 49 - 82mm. In practice I found these filters to be of poor quality. First & foremost they are not as robust as some reviewers have said because they scratch easily. I have mostly used the Graduated ND filters & although they come in wallets each filter is also in its own clear plastic sleeve to prevent scratching & when in the field it is far too tricky to reuse these so you tend to put them back into the wallet without this added protection & they get scratched. Secondly I found that the Neutral Graduated filters added a Magenta cast to my images when used with long exposures. The longer the exposure the greater the cast. The problem is more noticeable the further away from the lens the filter is placed. Also the holder is visible when used with a super wide angle lens such as a 10mm (APSC size) Not for the series landscape photographer. I am a club photographer & I feel that these filters will not stand up to more than one seasons use in the field. They may however be fine for you if you are only an occasional snapper who doesn't generally take long exposures or use a super wide angle lens for your landscape images.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fryer, 4 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had this a couple of months now & it has seen use around three times so far. It cooks chips perfectly. The easy clean feature is great, it all comes apart & can be put in the dish washer for cleaning.
Another handy little feature is the removable timer, if you do have to leave the kitchen for any reason while cooking you can take this timer with you & it will remind you when the cooking time is over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Food Grade Funnel, 4 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for use when draining the old fat from the fat fryer. The handy removable stanless steel filter catches all the bits in the fat which is very useful. It also saves making a mess when decanting the old oil from your fryer into a bottle or similar narrow necked container.
