1.0 out of 5 stars No way to search the Program Guide for programs to record, 27 Mar. 2016
Bought this to go with my Samsung Smart TV and to replace a Samsung Blu-Ray player that stopped working as well as a 10 year old Humax PVR. I was lured in by the holy grail of using a single remote control for all. However, the H8900 lacks some of the basic functions of the 10 year old Humax. It does not allow you to search the Electronic Program Guide. You can search apps and the internet but not the EPG, which I think is a fundamental flaw and makes it very difficult to find programs to record as the only way to do so is to scroll through the EPG, or search for the right time on the internet and enter in the details manually. I didn't test this but it seems it is not possible to stream from an app and record at the same time. None of this was clear in the description of the product so I returned mine the next day. The Blu-Ray and other functions of this worked well, but I couldn't live without the search.
I replaced with a Samsung BD-H6500 3D Blu-Ray (as that part of the function was fine) and a Humax FVP-4000T PVR which does have a Search Function. Total cost for the 2 was £275 so not much more than the Samsung and the Humax has 3 tuners and is a much better PVR.

2.0 out of 5 stars Print didn't survive the first wash, 27 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love the design, the T-shirt feels good quality, it is nice thick cotton and fits well, but unfortunately the print did not survive the first wash and tumble. It cracked and crumbled before I even got wear it. The seller handled this well saying "it should not have happened" and refunded immediately without requiring me to return the item. Hence, 2 stars rather than one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and well made., 16 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very simple design but solid and well made. Functions exactly as it was designed to. No issues with this in the 3 months since I bought it. My son loves it and it works well with his Nerf gun. Makes sure he is not aiming at the TV. He enjoyed deciding where to put the number stickers.

Trevi Digital Hourglass Egg Timer with Clock - battery operated LCD - Red

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it is supposed to., 19 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this instead of an egg timer as it allows you to set different times. Display fills up at the bottom like an egg timer and relates to the time set on the timer. I am using it to encourgae my son to eat meals a little faster, (as he is a really slow eater) and the visual aspect of this is useful as he too young to tell time. It seems well made, it is easy to use and came with batteries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value but a little thinner than expected, 9 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the jug it is a good size and a nice vivid colour just like the picture, my only criticism is that the side walls are a little thinner than I expected, and the lid restricts the pour rate a little. I will wait an see how it holds up, but it seems good value.

Bought this for my wife to feed her Haribo habit. She loves it. Helps keep them fresh and stops there being lots of half empty torn bags around.

Saw the crows recently in LOndon and they played most of the songs on this CD, so I love listening to it to bring back the memories. If you like them you will like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lot of great songs and a great story to go with it get the CD (not the download), 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been a fan of the crows since August and Everything, so I was always going to like this, but what I really enjoyed was reading the stories in the accompanying booklet that explain why the bands like the songs they cover and how the met or knew the bands. Hence, worth paying the extra to get the CD, just to read the back story.

These were not quite as thick as advertised probably more like 3.5mm than 5mm, but they feel good quality and so far they are doing the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smell much better than the usual supermarket brands, 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is getting a little tricky to find bio-degradable nappy sacks in the supermarket, (ideal for using with bio-degradeable nappies), so I gave these a try and as well as working out cheeper than Naty, they smell better than any other scented nappy sacks I have encountered.
