5.0 out of 5 stars Great space-saving appliance (which also secures your devices), 21 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived very quickly and does the job splendidly. Instead of a huge flat multi-socket extension for my TV, DVD player, satellite box, Apple TV,telephone etc etc occupying an acre of floor space in the corner of the room behind the TV stand, all plugs are now securely inserted into this device which occupies minimal floor space and, as an extra boost, provides surge protection to my brand new, all singing/internet-connected TV. I would definitely recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read guide with focus on home purcgasing, 26 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very informative, especially for those intending to buy in abd retire to Spain. Table of contents would have been useful, but the text is very readable so you zip through quite quickly. (As usual, nothing on what happens if the worst happens and retirees require nursung care (as opposed to general healthcare provision, which is covered well)).

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing. Only really works with my iPhone/Bluetooth, otherwise pretty much a waste of space., 16 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Disappointed. It works well with my iPhone and when I play tunes from my iTunes library via the device using Bluetooth/wireless link, I get a lovely deep, room-filling sound (especially when I press the "3D" button on the remote!) Apart from that, however, a bit of a dead loss really. I have tried to connect to my TV using HMDI (bought a brand new cable especially!) and nothing at all happened. I then tried using a direct audio cable but all I get is a lot of static/hiss and poor quality reproduction of what is playing on the TV while I get nothing at all through the sound bar when I try to play my iTunes library via the Apple TV link to my TV. I phoned the Toshiba "Help" line and they could not help me either. They could not find my brand of TV (purchased 2 years or so ago via Amazon, but already delisted). I suspect that might be the problem (not high enough spec?) and shall keep the sound bar in anticipation of upgrading at some stage (although, to be honest, I would really like an "all-in" TV which will allow me to dispense with the growing accumulation of stuff around the TV (sound bar, woofer, Apple TV, Apple iPhone adapter (£40.00 - useless, as my broadband is so unreliable and cuts out when I am in the middle of watching a non-UK programme via my iPhone!) (Have gone over to using YouTube instead!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good account of which party is best equipped to address the massive challenges of "the liberal age", 26 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well written and comprehensive coverage of LD philosophy. Places globalisation squarely at the heart of primary factors underpinning British contemporary politics and presents a good case for the LDs having the best approach to meet these challenges by working towards creating a confident, outward-looking, highly skilled, innovative and engaged nation which can play a leading role in shaping the future of such a world as opposed to retreating into some nostalgia-tinged delusion of "a better yesterday" which thousands of Britons are pining for, given the abject failures of both the leading parties over the past twenty years in numerous areas of national life. If anyone is looking for a non-isolationist alternative, this is a good starting point to begin the search. Also addresses head-on issues of immigration and EU (with need for radical reform of latter's institutions). (I do question, however, why there is not (yet?) a "Why vote Green?" volume in this series? They have had an MP since 2010 whereas UKIP have only just managed one (by betraying the party he was elected to represent in the first instance) and that within the past few weeks).

This review is from: Candy Crush Saga (App)
Essentially a kid's game. Amusing to begin with but I deleted after the first options for purchasing add-ons popped up and added more 'adult' games like mah-jong etc.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Phone fits in very snugly and the case (plus screen cover film) provide good protection. The two styli (a short stubby one which inserts into the phone ear phones slot plus a full-size one) are also helpful. Good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and very prompt despatch and delivery, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very prompt despatch and arrival of this product which I needed to replace the battery in a small clock plus have one battery in reserve for next time. Trying to track down a battery of this size in a normal outlet (supermarket etc) would have been a nightmare so ordering on line makes much more sense. I now instinctively think "check online" (rather than physically going to a retailer) for an ever widening range of products. (Good news for the postal service as well as the number of hard copy letters, catalogues etc declines ever more!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Says in the blurb it is an objective overview but really very strongly 'Euro-sceptic', 21 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An easily readable, non-technical overview of the history and development of the EU which comes out overwhelmingly with the belief that it is virtually impossible to reform the Union and that, most probably, the UK will be leaving at some stage. Makes it clear the real "wrong turns" have lain in ever greater expansion of the EU towards the south and east which have brought in countries with socio-economic structures far different from "the Six" or "the Nine" plus what he regards as the total mess of the euro. I found many of the conclusions as to how the UK economy would fare post-EU exit as mainly based on surmise and a view that 'everything will be fine (I hope)'/"something will turn up". Could really have done with much more serious debate with documents such as the November 2013 CBI Report on "our global future" (referred to very fleetingly in one sentence in the book!) The Euro-sceptics will read this and nod at virtually every page while readers seeking a genuinely objective overview need to look elsewhere.

Pack of 50 Luxury RED Airlaid Napkins - Linen Feel
Pack of 50 Luxury RED Airlaid Napkins - Linen Feel
Offered by Crown Supplies
Price: £6.36

4.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable quality and good for everyday use, buffets etc, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These napkins are quite strong and have a good feel about them. They are fine for everyday use and for buffets etc. involving a number of people but for special occasions/meals (without the hassle of using linen!) something "heavier"/with a "thicker" feel may well be better. I shall be trading up for this purpose when the current stock runs out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extra long bath mat ideal for bath/shower combination. Easy to fit and very rapid delivery., 19 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had the product within 24 hours, fitted it in a few seconds (lots of suction pads on the reverse to ensure firm grip) and the mat now fits exactly in the bath, allowing for safe and problem-free showering as well. Very recommended.
