3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but dubious design, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have two of these. Easy enough to assemble, though the instructions aren't great. Looks fabulous. But I had to return one because the joint between the leg and the main frame snapped. It does look a bit dubiously designed, with the flange seeming to me (a total lay person!) to be thin. To be fair, the sellers replaced the goods really quickly and without fuss. But it leaves you a bit tentative when using the lounger, and worried how long it will last.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not great, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off. Only connects with iPhone 4S by cable, leaving the phone sitting wanly by the side. Doesn't charge. iPad3 didn't feel at all safe in it. And there was a loud buzzing which made listening a chore. I returned mine. To be fair, the sellers were understanding and gave a full refund, after a bit of discussion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheaply made, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love Amazon for getting great value for money. But there's a difference between I expensively priced, and cheaply made. This works to an extent, but the nozzle leaks badly, making it impossible to avoid getting weed killer where you don't want it ; and all over your hands too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard work, but interesting book, 26 Jan 2014

This review is from: The Bellini Card (Paperback)
This is my first go with Jason Goodwin. The writing is heavy going, but the characterisation is solid, so by the time you've dug in to the first few chapters there's a genuine interest in their futures. The pay off felt to me to be slightly contrived, and the ending quite busy with sub-plot lines! but I'm missing it now I've finished, which is always a good sign.

4.0 out of 5 stars Value for money, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You get what you pay for, and for the price this is a good deal. Very bright light. More than enough to light up my front door. Sturdy enough build. I've hung mine using a screw and it's as solid as required. The remote is reliable and works well, but only from about 15 feet. If that suits you, then this is a great purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to believe how good a service this is, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love this purchase. Great looking frames at a value for money price. But ideal to get a mount cut to size for you. I had two nice prints, but not worth professional framing. Cutting mounts is so much harder to do for yourself than anyone ever thinks. But it was ridiculous to pay the cost of a framer for average prints. This was an excellent compromise. Will use this service many times in future. Can't recommend highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money, 26 Jan 2014

This review is from: Frostfire Black Log Carrier
First ever log bag, instead of piling up logs in my arms. Much less mess, no more dropping errant logs - great decision. Decided to buy inexpensive, on the basis that I'll probably end up replacing a log bag every year given the bashing it will take. But I was worried cheap would mean rubbish. Not so. This is a sturdy bag, which it think will last a good long time. And really great value for money. Bigger than I expected - which is a bonus. Carries much more than an armful, but not too heavy, as the bag makes it all so much easier.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stopped working, 14 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to set up, looking good, printing well. Loved it. But after a while it's all gone so badly wrong.

Firstly the scanner quality isn't that good. But even worse, for some reason the bulk feed option stopped working for scanning. This was one of the reasons for buying this - stick in a pile of papers, forget about it, come back and they're all scanned. Not any more. Page by page on the platen. Waste of my life.

Worse though, the paper feed from the tray has stopped working. Check the internet - there's a lot of people out there suffering the same problem. None of them seem to have had any positive experience with HP Customer Services. Can't comment yet - just given up on trying to fix, and off to try Customer Services. Will update this with more.

My advice. Don't buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Top guy. Skip the book., 2 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Woz is clearly one of life's decent guys. And as co-founder of Apple he gets maximum respect. But this is a bad book. A really, really bad book. Awful writing, stilted, dull. And it doesn't do Woz any favours. Too many times he reminds us what a genius he is, and his offspring too. He's clever, but it's boring to be told that repeatedly. Something in my make up means I have to try and finish every book. This was one of the hardest to struggle through to the end - and it never gets better! Around the last few pages he tells us he wrote the book to set the record straight - and he clearly didn't do it because he needs the money. He wants people to know: (a) Steve Jobs didn't help design Apple II, (2) Woz doesn't hate Apple nor did he ever resign and is still an employee. There. One sentence. Saved you several hours of arm-gnashingly awful prose. If you rate Woz, avoid this book.
