Rapoo 9060 Wireless Keyboard with Mouse - Black
Rapoo 9060 Wireless Keyboard with Mouse - Black
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great build quality, superb value!, 21 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This keyboard & mouse combo is neatly packed in mostly clear packaging which shows off the good design and clean lines of the product before you open the box.
A simple and compact USB transceiver slips into a free port and connects your input devices with your PC, laptop or windows tablet. It is also Mac compatible.
The feel of this keyboard is like a top quality laptop (not a £399 unit), but it has a full numeric keypad on the end. The back is metal, which gives it great rigidity and durability, but can be cold if you use it on your knee whilst wearing shorts! When I felt the keyboard on my desk, it immediately was comfortable to touch and straightforward to use. No 'wireless delay' was experienced - it responds just as quickly as a wired unit and is so much more versatile and 'freeing'.
The mouse, again, has instant response and tracks wonderfully. It is ergonomically designed and feels great in the hand.
The more I use this the more I like it - I think this is going to take over from my more traditional HP unit.
Simply great value for money, and a pleasure to use. Buy it!


Philips LED Light Bulb (E27 Edison Screw 6W A60) - Warm White
Philips LED Light Bulb (E27 Edison Screw 6W A60) - Warm White
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars instant on, white light but only 40W equivalent, 13 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This bulb easily screws into the light fitting, it is trim and compact not necessitating extra room than an old style bulb.
This is instantly on at full brilliance, and gives a warm white light. Compared to last years models that had a light green tinge, this clearly white.
Unfortunately this is only as bright as a traditional 40W bulb and the overall output this is low. I would suggest that this should be part of a 5 or 6 bulb fitting to get enough light for a normal room. Alone in a bedside lamp it doesn't give enough light to read comfortably.
Lots of positives, but not really bright enough for me, hence 4 star


Philips LED Light Bulb (A60 9.5 W B22 Bayonet Cap) - Warm White
Philips LED Light Bulb (A60 9.5 W B22 Bayonet Cap) - Warm White
Price: £8.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm white, instantly on, 13 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This bayonet cap is trim in design and fits easily into the light fitting. This bulb is almost instantly on and at full brilliance. In a light fitting with last generation LED's the bulb is on first and a warm white light compared to the green tinged light of last years models.
It is so important to have real white light and have it quickly, and the bulb will not disappoint. I would be very happy to buy the bulb anytime and also would recommend it unequivocally.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real alternative to Sage, 10 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Intuit are trying to move to the ‘software rental’ model, where you pay an annual fee to use their products. Here with this new version of ‘Quickbooks’, we encounter the first incarnation of this model which 3 people can use, so in a small business it is probably about the right number of accounts.

To load, you don’t have to use a CD, but can just go to a supplied web address, but if you do a voice speaks to you, welcoming you and tells you what to do next. Registering is simplicity itself and you just have to supply an email address and set up a new password for your Intuit account.

When you feed in your company/sole trader/charity information it asks you for a logo, so that it can generate letters and reports that are suitable for purpose.

The screen it shows you whilst setting up your account is really cool – the number of worldwide users of Quickbooks, the number in your category of ‘trade’ and the number near you.

There are a number of on-line videos that show you what the software is capable of and that will teach you specific features.
You can import your data from an earlier version of Quickbooks and connect to your on-line bank account/credit card to load transactions into the programme.

As a long time Sage user, I have never been a huge Quickbooks fan, but I have to say that the layout of screens on this version is SUPERIOR to Sage and EASIER to navigate in every way.

Payroll can seamlessly integrate with HMRC RTI and is free for the first year but then just £1 per employee per month. I think it is meaningless to have an accounting package these days that doesn’t include payroll.

As you might expect this package comes complete with a full set of business reporting (over 65), VAT compliance, generation of estimates and invoices. stock control, budgeting. It is also possible to track sales by location and to allow employees limited access to enter their hours worked.

There is no reason for not considering Quickbooks for your small business, but do consider the issues surrounding software rental; personally I think this is the best solution, but you may need to be convinced.


Dimplex 2 KW Oil Free Column Heater Radiator
Dimplex 2 KW Oil Free Column Heater Radiator
Price: £59.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick, simple and reasonable running cost, 10 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent source of additional heat in my office, which is more than adequate. Heating is quick and simple. Solidly built and with useful controls (timer, thermostat and 2 heat settings), this oil free radiator sets the standard for electric liquid filled radiators.
** Mine emitted an overpowering smell of bad eggs for the first 30 minutes of use. I rang the help line, which was easy to get through to and they immediately confirmed that this is normal for first use, and indeed it hasn't happened since.
I cannot see anything inappropriate with the running cost and have no hesitation in recommending this model

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, character driven mysteries, 10 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Starting with the cliff hanger solution from series 12, Sam from Cheers further transforms himself into an intelligent, gifted investigator who adds greatly to the mix of the show and leads a great team through the crime scenes of Vegas. This year we see more emotion from a number of the cast and characters who have been there for years are further developed as the stories continue to run past us.
Another great series! Not tired or worn out yet!


Philips Sonicare HX9004/26 Intercare Brush Heads Pack of 4
Philips Sonicare HX9004/26 Intercare Brush Heads Pack of 4
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great results, better pricing, 10 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whereas these do not seem to be the same as the soft head supplied with my toothbrush originally, these are clearly genuine Philips (NOT COPIES) and they deliver an excellent brushing experience. The only problem with the Philips heads (which for my mouth give a better experience than the Braun/Oral B offering is that they are more expensive and this seemed to be the most cost effective way of buying them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Low cost, excellent, 10 Oct 2014

A simple but instant solution for those who want to join two USB cables together. In my case the need to join a scanner to an extension which would not work with a simply longer lead as it requires the noise reduction of its supplied short cable


On the Cessation of the Charismata: The Protestant Polemic on Post-biblical Miracles--Revised & Expanded Edition
On the Cessation of the Charismata: The Protestant Polemic on Post-biblical Miracles--Revised & Expanded Edition
by Jon Mark Ruthven
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.50

5.0 out of 5 stars A rigorous treatement of the subject, 10 Oct 2014
An excellent treatise that has become a standard reference work on this important question. Allowing the Bible to question you is at least as important as allowing you to question it. This work will help you come face to face with Biblical truth and in doing so help you guard your heart.
The theological and academic nature of this book may be off-putting to some, but to students and pastors this is a work of high pedigree which will arm you against heresy and help inform your preaching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping the smoke form your eyes..., 10 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An epic journey through the smoke of theology that opens our eyes to a broader landscape. Whereas I am not totally won over by his conclusions, I cannot help but deeply consider them. This is a work of great theology, which deserves serious consideration and adds greatly to the depth of literature on this subject, becoming a mandatory read and an 'Ebenezer' of a pillar to those asking questions about where God and the eternal destiny of those who reject Christ.
This new updated version is the one to buy and I recommend the way it will stretch your thinking and aid your study.
