5.0 out of 5 stars Does what they say on the box, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh no, another seagull poop mountain.. but these wipes are really effective at getting it off. You will need a dry tissue to do the final clean up but they do work surprisingly well and I keep a few in the glove box. Leaving droppings on the paintwork will rot through it so early treatment is a good idea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small but perfectly formed, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this as the "missing" flash for my Canon 5Dmkiii which does not have a built in flash. Powerful enough for fill in flash and surprisingly strong when combined with the high ISO speeds on the 5D. Small and light, it fits in a dusty corner of the camera bag and is there when it is needed, unlike the standard Canon fare which is nearly as big as the camera.


Omron Healthcare M6 Comfort Upper Arm Blood Pressure monitor
Omron Healthcare M6 Comfort Upper Arm Blood Pressure monitor
Offered by KM Essentials
Price: 62.10

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and seems to give good results, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Monitoring your blood pressure is a pretty sensible thing as you get older; doing it at the doctors once a year is hardly representative. Especially if you suffer from "white coat syndrome". This unit is properly validated and works well. The spring cuff is simple and easy to put on. The twin memory is useful for couples; it also has averaging features at different times of the day. Not cheap but you get what you pay for; it's well engineered, has a clear display with cuff confirmation and a decent carry case. Our doctor is impressed we care enough about own health to use this and is happy to base clinical decisions partly based on the readings we provide.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very intense light source, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Candle bulbs are usually quite gentle but this one has an incredibly intense point source. Would probably be Ok in a frosted fitting but in an open one be prepared for harsh shadows.

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat extender that works well, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a neat unit that requires virtually no setting up and seems to work very well at its allotted task. It's not über-powerful; good location is key to getting extended wireless range.


The Somme
The Somme
by Peter Barton
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 24.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous book, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Somme (Hardcover)
The First World War remains an enigmatic conflict, lacking any sensible rationale for the staggering bloodletting and destruction of resources. Visiting the sites of the war today finds a modern landscape, which is often hard to reconcile with the contemporary images. The genius of Peter Barton's book is the juxtaposition of the front line panoramas with the present day. It allows the interested observer to match up the views on the ground and get a feeling of what went on a hundred years ago. The narrative is also intensely moving, sometimes almost too much to read it is so affecting. One surprising aspect is how ordinary the front lines look; white scars concealing industrial death. A must-have book for all visits to the Somme in the forthcoming commemoration.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality unit but challenging to assemble, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice canopy at a good price. Delivery was really fast. The supports, panels and frames are well made and strong. Installing it was quite a challenge though. The supplied sleeve anchors would not hold in my limestone wall; I had to buy proper wall anchors - suggest anyone contemplating this do that anyway. The rubber sleeves for the panels were too short to seal fully and were very hard to insert in the frames in the cold. I gave up and used silicone to get the seal. The screws used to hold the frames together were rubbish and I used stainless self tappers instead. If you are planning to buy this unit make sure you've got two people and practise what you are going to do before committing to the wall bolts. Once up it's worth the effort. Oh and it might be easier to wait for warmer weather to increase flexibility - doing it in 8 degrees probably wasn't sensible.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very effective., 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maybe it's me but I found this pretty useless. You're better off doing a decent job with masking tape than relying on this to keep a good paint line.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good unit, 15 Jan 2014

This unit surprised me with the quality of construction and functionality. It's a fraction of the price of the manufacturer's part but works just as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive for what it is, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A piece of plastic with some foam in it. You could do the same yourself. It's hard to clean after use and gives marginal benefit to the polishing operation. Perfect it is not.
