Verbatim 43548 16x DVD-R - Spindle 50 Pack
Verbatim 43548 16x DVD-R - Spindle 50 Pack
Price: £9.59

2.0 out of 5 stars Used to be good. Now cheap, in a bad way!, 15 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used to love Verbatim but they must have changed the mix as this is the first batch ever to give me consistent fails at either to fast or too slow burn speeds. If you aim for an 8x burn speed it's likely to work but I can't speak to the long-term archival quality of these. Maybe the bean-counters got to the quality control dept?

Quality denim and a stylish fit. The top buttons pinged off shortly after wearing but that might just be too many waffles and cakes on my part!

5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable gadget, 30 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Top quality product. Picture does not do it justice. Works great and isn't fazed by a house full of RCDs - does not trip them at all. Already found it very useful. Only point to make is that 'GREEN GREEN RED' means 'Live Fault' which is shown in the little slip of a manual you get with it but isn't shown on the front of the tester.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks great, tastes average, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
'3 stars? Really?' you say. On the surface this is a great book and has some great chefs contributing. I will admit it looks splendid and whilst quite large to take to bed I will admit I use this book as food porn at night to give me something to salivate over. Beautifully presented and the layout and pics are fantastic. But..... whilst I have only tried a fraction of the recipes so far they all come out disappointingly bad or at best a mediocre Delia Smith! Sorry to say but if the proof is in the pudding this pudding doesn't have the proof! Won't stop me salivating over the pics though!

No point keeping these for spices. Wanted something airtight. This ain't it.


Just Refill 250ml Photo Black Universal Refill Ink
Just Refill 250ml Photo Black Universal Refill Ink

3.0 out of 5 stars It's black ink!, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Black ink! Who knew? All the stuff I get on eBay turns out to be a watered down grey so to finally get an ink that does what is says on the tin... lovely!

Update: whilst it is a decent black at the start, compared to the original HP black ink or to Lyson dye ink it is a 'lighter shade of black'. Also it is not colour fast compared to Lyson inks (not that you should expect it to be as it is much cheaper). By that I mean you can't print a pic to put up on a wall that gets the sun and expect it to stay black. So have updated to give it an ok rating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak bubbler yes, Frother...no!, 21 July 2014
Awful. Makes more of an invisible foam that dissipates on the first sip than any kind of foam. Avoid.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bamboozed by bible-basher, 21 July 2014
This book started brilliantly. Very easy to read and seemed to have a complex but coherent plot. Then it gets convoluted and boring and then finally it turns to a God-loving 'Jesus saves' book. It's like a beautiful woman knocks on the door and asks for some sugar only for her to turn into a grizzly old man preaching the word of God and telling you not to be a sinner. In fact, it's not 'like' that... it IS that! I couldn't believe I'd been bamboozled by Christian literature - which is all this is. The problem isn't the message about Christianity, rather the beginning pretence that gets you hooked and then the lethergic mess to get to the confused crux which turns out to be that we should all love God. It doesn't even make sense as a plot. A waste of my time.
