2.0 out of 5 stars Second time this model has broken mid-blending., 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had two of the exact same blender. The first broke mid-blending with spinach juice, and went all over the kitchen wall, and the replacement has just done the same, only five months after it was sent out. This time chocolate protein shake went everywhere.

When the blender works, it is very good for the price. However, it is unforgivable that this exact problem has happened twice. However, to give Philips its due, they have replaced it in double quick time. Now on to Blender number 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect. First screen protector that was easy and looks good!, 26 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite impressed with this product. I was doubtful, and didn't want to spend too much money, so the price made me a bit wary. I always end up going through at least one protector until I get it right. This was easy to do, got it first time with no bubbles, and I don't even notice it is on! In fact I had to look very hard at the edges to make sure I had actually applied it because it is invisible. The screen is so clear through it as well, so very happy. Also got it next day so it was super fast.

1.0 out of 5 stars Broken On First Use, 10 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When it arrived, looked very sturdy. The handle itself is strong, and the loofah part too. The problem is, the two are attached with some sort of glue, which when in contact with the hot water, seemed to melt! The loofah fell off the handle, and it is now completely useless for its original purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tastes better than milkshakes!, 8 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to admit, when I was about to taste this product, I didn't know what to expect and was a little wary. However, as soon as I had a sip, I couldn't believe how nice it was. It tasted better than any milkshake you would buy from a supermarket, and has the added bonus of 30g of protein. A great way to replenish the body after a good workout. Very impressed.

The portion is great for lunch as well, and it's a lot nicer than mixing up protein powder. The convenience factor plays highly in the five stars for this item, as you can just chill it, take it with you and then drink when you need it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Product has been relabelled with new expiry date., 8 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really hate to give such a negative review, but this product has had to be destroyed. It arrived covered in yellow marks and flaking product on the spray pump. I was concerned, and looked at the expiry date. It stated 29/03/2013, however there was a more yellow-tinged label underneath. I found this very strange, so carefully peeled it back. In fact, the product expired in 04/05/2010 and has been relabelled with a fresh date.

Given the nature of this product as an antiseptic spray, the fact it was flaking, discoloured and out of date is a real concern. Amazon refunded me in full after viewing a photograph of the product, but just a gentle warning if you are considering this for your family. I do not trust a product that would relabel itself with a new expiry date and hope you don't notice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product. Supercools laptop., 12 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my 15.6 inch laptop, and it works very well. Firstly, it's a great design, so on the desk it keeps it raised and at a good angle for viewing. Also, when on your lap, it's very comfy and fits well. The non slip works perfectly, and the laptop doesn't move and stays secure.

As for the cooling action, it is very efficient. The fan really is super cool, and I'm not sure how such a small fan can be so cold! It leaves the bottom of the laptop, that used to be burning hot to the touch, actually ice cold. It's also quite quiet - I hardly hear it.

Overall, an excellent product, both in design and functionality. I definitely recommend purchasing if you use your laptop for long periods of time. Not only will it stop your lap from becoming very hot, but it will stop the processor from running so hot, and possibly decreasing performance and/or life of the processor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff and very soothing, 26 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This really does deserve five stars. I've had a rash on my neck for a month, and it is so tempting to scratch. I was scratching it so much the skin was raw. After buying this and using it for a few days, it cools, soothes, and takes away all the itching. I don't even touch the skin on the neck now, and it's getting a great change to heal and turn from hard rough skin back to normal.

It seems very pure - there is no smell, except the natural plant smell of an aloe vera leaf, and the ingredients look like it is almost completely aloe vera, with just a few preservatives. It's very cooling, I've taken to putting it on my face some nights after a hard day, which feels very nice. I would reccommend this, especially if you have a rash, or problem skin. So much better than lotions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very relaxing and indulgent product, 13 Dec 2010
The product uses excellent ingredients, and the smell is wonderful. A little in a hot bath, and you are soon soothed, and the aroma helps melt away all your cares.

You don't need too much of this product, as the smell is intense. It fills the bathroom with a deeply relaxing scent, and really helps ease muscle pains or tension. Highly recommeded!


Kodak Zx1 High Definition Pocket Video Camera - Black (discontinued by manufacturer)
Kodak Zx1 High Definition Pocket Video Camera - Black (discontinued by manufacturer)

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for the price, 14 Sep 2010
This is a great little video camera, and perfect for amateur filming of events, nights out or YouTube clips. It's very, very sturdy - dropped it on a hard surface and not even a scratch, and still works perfectly. Also weather proof, so you can take it out in all conditions.

The quality is very good, especially outside in good lighting. Indoors the video can be a litttle grainy, but it is miles ahead of old camcorder techology, and having just filmed a meal with friends in a restaurant, the colours and picture came out very well. Sound quality is better than you would think, too.

To be fair, it's a small video camera that you can take anywhere. And you don't even need to worry about battery expenses, since it comes with rechargable AAs and charger. And if the battery runs out, and you can't charge them, then just buy any AA batteries and they will work.

Connectivity is brilliant, and comes with USB, AV and HDMI cable, so you can get the HD video right on your HD tv in no time.

The cons are a shaky picture, small lens (so people appear very close) and poor performance in very low light, but for the price, these are easy to look over. It fits in your bag, take it anywhere, and create some memories!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic level, very readable., 4 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this textbook for my third year Psychology course. I've just finished reading it cover to cover, and it is a fantastic book. To be honest, cognitive psychology can be a little dry at times, and at other times, just plain confusing. However, I found this book to strike a good balance in being very readable, and also quite enjoyable. There are plenty of case studies, and current research discussed, and it is bang up to date.

I'm not going to say it was a joy to read at every point - there are some long and difficult pages, but it pays off to read them, and it doesn't sacrifice facts for always being a page-turner. It certainly gave me plenty information, and I feel like I have a good grasp of the subject after reading it.
