Ring of Linked Rings
Ring of Linked Rings
by Sydney N. Afriat
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the puzzle collector, 18 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ring of Linked Rings (Paperback)
Very very detailed exposition on the Chinese rings puzzle. It even has some programs written in BASIC to play with! I think I need to get an interpreter for my mac!

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job and easy to install, 12 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Replacing an existing photocell which had died, this was a doddle to fit and worked immediately. It is important to work out which direction is north and orient the photocell appropriately (there is an arrow on the unit). The cover is opaque and not clear like the picture so I guess it will switch on at slightly higher light levels but I am still happy with it. Great price too.

4 Bulbs for my oven. The last bulb from Philips only lasted just over a year so I bought 4! Hopefully they'll last a bit longer. All arrived intact and well packaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very petit, easy to install and works a charm, 26 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very early review - it has not had a lot of heavy use. I was after a networked laser printer after my last one died. I was amazed at how small this one is - it easily fits in a small desk space and is very easy to install (Mac OS X). All the networking aspects were very easy to sort out and at last I have a printer that works without multiple attempts at printing. My previous printer (a Konica Minolta) kept failing to work ver the network and kept failing to recognise toner cartridges but this just worked straight off. I can't vouch for 28ppm but it certainly seems incredibly fast!

Definitely well recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great coffee! Not espresso however, 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed something portable and less fragile than a cafetiere to make better coffee at work. This seemed to fit the bill. It is a very complete and well designed set, it does make very nice coffee indeed. You will need to get a fairly fine grind and an adjustable burr grinder is a really good idea. If too fine then it chokes the filters. It makes a good and strong cup with no bitterness. It's quite quick and easy but a tad messy when it comes to rinsing it out. Do not expect a proper espresso from it - it is not as good as a dedicated espresso machine. It does however make a really good very strong coffee. I dilute mine with hot water and add a small drop of milk.

Well worth the small cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great hand Vac, 3 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our previous one died after 7 years - so it had to be replaced immediately! This was the next cheapest on the market and looked good. It is much more powerful and now comes with a plugin charger rather than the charging dock which means that it is easy to replace either battery or charger as these are the parts that die.

Does a great job and the battery lasts a good long while.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks good but scratches easily, 3 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good strong case and would definitely protect the phone from a fall. It is very shiny and quite slippy - It very nearly slipped out of my hand into a full sink!! The only down side is that the shiny back gets scratched very easily but it's worth it for the protection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice case!, 4 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice leather case - well actually it is faux leather (and that isn't really made clear) but it is good quality and looks and feels like leather. It is nicely stitched and holds the iphone perfectly. It is very tight and I do worry whether the elastic pull will give at some time but it does appear to be stretching a little. This is well worth the money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very high quality item, great in ear fit, 1 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I originally had the Klipsch S4i and really liked those. The only criticism was that the control buttons were too small and fiddly. One day I left them out and my cat ate right through them and so I immediately went to replace them and was delighted to find the new S5i earbuds. These addressed all the problems and fit perfectly in my ears. You do get a nice selection of tips.

When my new kitten chewed through that set (certain theme here!!) I headed off to Amazon and ordered a replacement set immediately - very pleased to see that the price had come down by 30%! If these also get lost/damaged then I will buy another set without hesitation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful little gadget, 2 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I held off buying an ebook reader until the price was right - this has hit the acceptable level. Don't compare to the US price as by the time you add VAT to the cost of the non-advert subsidised version there is very little in it.

This has hit the sweet spot for size and weight, easy to read anywhere, light as a feather. The new page refresh is much improved - it is far less jarring to have the complete screen flash occur every 6th screen. There are plenty of books available but I am disappointed that with such tiny distribution costs (no trees to fell, books to print, parcels to post etc.) that the prices are still so high. I cannot blame Amazon as it is the publishers who set the price. The authors need to make a living but these should not cost more than a paperback! Hopefully competition will help drive prices down. If you have PDFs or books in other formats then the free Calibre application is superb as an ebook library manager and converts more or less anything to the .mobi format.

The other ebook readers on the market also work as well but the bookstores are less complete and usually more expensive.
If you are hesitating then don't! You won't be disappointed.
