1.0 out of 5 stars Little more than annecdotes, 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HOUSE SHARE HERO (Paperback)
I purchased this book based on the sales blurb - it's supposed to help HMO landlords by providing information to assist them with the running of their properties. I found this book offered little to no advice, hints, systems, methods, or any useful information for anyone who's been a HMO landlord for more than a week. The content was so spread out that the useful information could be condensed onto half a page. I never normally write reviews, but was very disappointed with this purchase.

Buy only if you want a bit of a story and a tale. Don't buy if you want to improve your HMO management system.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shocking quality, worse customer service, 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I understand the robe is cheap, but it should not be sold if it's to come apart in pieces after several weeks of use. There are threads coming out everywhere and there is now a hole also. I contacted the sellers and they refused to assist. The faults began to appear 2 weeks into use. Spend a bit more and get something with a little quality.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where's the reception?, 4 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After several months of owning this I had to switch it to FM mode all the time. And it's FM quality is not as good as a 10 FM radio.

In three UK locations I have only been able to receive a fraction of the stations I'm supposed to receive. I blamed this on digital radio in general, but it seems to be related more to this product!

Looks great on the shelf, just don't turn it on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest opinion, 25 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I pay A LOT of attention to reviews and this is actually the first time I've created one myself. I'm doing so because there are a lot of conflicting reviews. Seems people either love or hate this bench.

If you do weights - this bench is not heavy. Just 22kg and can be easily picked up and moved around. Perhaps up and down stairs wouldn't be much fun though.

You only need to glance at the instructions to figure out how the bench works and it's more about understanding how it works rather than memorising the positions. You won't need to refer to the manual.

The bench position can be changed without moving it at all, let alone put it on its side. Granted - you need two hands for this statement to be true. It takes 30 seconds to change 3 or 4 pins. If this is too much for you - work out on the floor perhaps and forget getting a bench.

The quality is very good - not commercial level but vastly exceeding most home benches I've come across before. I can see this lasting a long time.

It's very comfortable. You won't be dissapointed, and if you are, you shouldn't be buying a gym bench because changing plates on a dumb bell is likely to be complicated for you too. Glad I bought it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor sound quality, 17 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you like listening to poor quality music will little bass and trebble then this product is for you. It works and that's about it. No where near good enough for me to enjoy my music and does not come close to coventional FM radio quality. Dissapointing.
