Soft Leather Credit Card Holder Wallet
Soft Leather Credit Card Holder Wallet
Offered by Supreme Leather
Price: £5.60

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit too small - cards too tight in the space provided, 2 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good value, but the dimensions are a bit too small to accommodate credit cards comfortably. Needs to be marginally (say 5%) bigger top to bottom (as you look at the picture). I have a wallet the right size that is wearing out - they used to be easy to find, but not any more, unfortunately.

Kärcher Car Wash Brush
Kärcher Car Wash Brush
Price: £10.00

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but a bit of a disappointment, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Attaches OK to the Karcher wand. I was expecting some sort of pressure jet. Instead, you seem to get a rate of water flow similar to that of a conventional hose. Of course, you can switch it on/off with the wand control, and you also get a decent reach with the wand. But I was hoping for something with a bit more oomph.


Seago SG910 Intelligent frequency sonic electric toothbrush with 3 brush heads (Light Blue)
Seago SG910 Intelligent frequency sonic electric toothbrush with 3 brush heads (Light Blue)
Offered by BESTONLYUK
Price: £13.55

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact, works well, recommended, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent value. Never had a sonic brush before, so I can't make comparisons, but I'm impressed. The vibrations take a bit of getting used to. My previous electric toothbrush was a mains model, and the cable and recharger took a lot of space. The SG910 is a battery model and takes scarcely any more space than a conentional toothbrush. Batteries last well. Very impressed, well done Seago!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too round!, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good value, and seem to be odourless. But I really don't like these completely spherical capsules - if you drop one, it often rolls into somewhere inaccesible or out of sight. If you are transferring them to a smaller pot (which I do) be careful as any dropped will scatter in all directions! Most capsules these days are oval, and much easier to manage. if you can cope with the shape, recommended.

Trueshopping Versatile 2 Seater Outdoor Garden & Patio Wooden Wood 'Modbury' Bench which converts to 4 Person Picnic Table Furniture

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - but take care with assembly, 28 Jun 2014
This is an excellent product at a reasonable price. I'd give the designer 6/7 stars if that were possible! As a picnic table it is sturdy, and as a bench, it's remarkably comfortable.
I agree with another reviewer that it's helpful to treat the parts with a good wood product (I used Cuprinol wood preserver) before assembly. Not difficult to put together, but not easy either - need to be careful, and it's useful to have some experience in DIY. The instructions (diagrams) are brief and somewhat ambiguous; when fitting the self-tapping screws, there are no guide markings showing exactly where the screws should be received. I was lucky to get it right first time, I could easily have gone wrong!
Reviews on the Trueshopping website are rather too positive - those on the Amazon website are better, and point out the assembly issues in a more balanced way.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK - works well, 19 Dec 2013

Comfortable to use but a bit small. Works well in a confined space, and the retractable cord is good, Pleased with it generally, though I prefer the V7 mini that I bought at the same time.

600W 7 Fin Mini Oil Filled Radiator
600W 7 Fin Mini Oil Filled Radiator

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent heater, don't like the controls, 19 Dec 2013
This is a reasonable product for the price, but there are several similar small oil-filled heaters available in this price range, and I'm sorry I chose this one. Reason is quite simple - there is no separate on/off switch and warning light. The red light only glows when the heat is operating, so with the thermostat set to halfway there's no light showing once it is up to the required temperature. So I forget it's switched on and often leave it on in my study when I go to bed, thus wasting a lot of electricity overnight. My previous heater - a Tesco cheapie which gave up the ghost after about 3 years - had this feature, and so do most others, including a similar model from Currys.
