5.0 out of 5 stars Old But Genuine, 7 May 2014

This review is from: We Joined the Navy (Hardcover)
A very old and rather battered copy of this fondly remembered book but delivered quickly at a bargain price. Still relevant to today's aspiring young hopefuls at the AIB.

For anyone making the Trumpeter 1/350 Dreadnaught kit this book is invaluable. Much more detailed and clear than any B&W photos of the period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm Your Plates., 15 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been using some similar pads to warm plates for several years but, unfortunately, they had become rather tatty. These new pads are rather different from the old ones but, with a few experimental warmings I soon got the microwave time right. These pads retain the heat much better than the old thin ones so the plates can be warmed well in advance of the meal.

5.0 out of 5 stars These definitely work!, 15 Feb 2013

This review is from: ECOBALLS 150
Have been using these balls for a few years now and they definitely work. Ours were looking a litle battered so I ordered some new ones but they came without the rubber rings that are necessary to keep the noise down when they are moving about the revolving drum. Fortunately, the old rubber rings fitted well on the new balls and quiet was restored!

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT MACHINE, 14 Dec 2012

This generator exceeded all my expectations and is quiet and easy to operate. I misunderstood part of the instruction manual but this was entirely my fault and the after-sales help I received was fast and unstinting. Definitely a 5* service.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best 2-Stroke Oil, 18 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This oil is more expensive than others but if, like me, you tend to be asthmatic and use 2-stroke machines regularly, it will help to minimise any problems you may have with exhaust fumes. It also promises to extend the life of the 2-stroke mix. There was always a problem with 'ageing' of the mix if you kept it too long so, if true, this should reduce the neccesity for discarding old fuel mixes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Slow Cooker, 5 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this with some misgivings because there was the odd unfavourable review on the Amazon website. They must have been unlucky or misguided because this slow cooker is excellent in every way. Standard of manufacture appears high and it performs very well indeed. It is important to choose the correct size and 3.5 litres is about right for cooking a meal for 2 or 3 people. It would be too big for one person, however, and too small for a large family so it is important to get this right.

5.0 out of 5 stars King Size Electric Blanket, 5 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was delivered without the necessary electrical leads and controls but Amazon responded quickly and intelligently delivering a replacement very quickly. The blanket is precisely as described and performs exactly as in the brochure. It is neither the cheapest nor the most expensive but I got just what I wanted at a better price than I could have found it in any of the shops locally. What more can you ask?

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Hepa Filter Replacement, 5 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this 'pattern' filter to replace the original hepa filter in my Dyson cleaner that had become clogged with fine dust over many years. It was much cheaper than a genuine part but appeared identical and fitted well. Suction performance of the cleaner was restored and the air flowing out of it seems clean but I have no way of knowing if it's as clean as it would have been with a genuine filter! It appears to work well to me so I have given it 5*s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Branagh's Wallander 2, 16 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wallander - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Unlike the Swedish Wallander series the English version follows Mankell's novels very closely. If you have read the books then this series brings them to life vividly. The only shortcoming that I see is that the cast are rather too young to play the older and more interesting characters of the books. The Swedish version is much better at casting older actors for these roles but I think that there is a mindset in British TV that viewers only want to watch younger actors. The Swedish versions seem much more sophisticated in comparison but may not be to everyone's taste and their stories are only based on the characters and not the novels.
Having said all that Branagh's Wallander is a mesmerising performance and this is television of the highest quality.
