Deluxe Thick Replacement Garden Sun Bed Lounger Cushion Red Design
Deluxe Thick Replacement Garden Sun Bed Lounger Cushion Red Design

5.0 out of 5 stars very comfortable and fits the lounger well, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These fit very well onto the type of adjustable white plastic lounger you find at holiday resorts (I have two of these at home). So well in fact that I haven't had to use any of the ties provided to fasten them onto the loungers. They're also extremely comfortable to lie on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, nice set, lasts well, no delivery probs, 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought two of these sets and have now had them three months. Nothing has chipped or broken and the colour has lasted well. The pieces in the sets are consistent in colour and moulding, and any irregularities there may be are tiny. The sets arrived well packaged with no problems.

2.0 out of 5 stars Even working in management would be better, 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this in a fit of enthusiasm after playing Square Enix's excellent version of Tomb Raider. However it tuned out to be more like their tedious reworking of Deus Ex, so for me a boring and formulaic experience (you basically spend your time creeping about trying to stay out of people's eye line.)

The worst thing about the game though is that in the intro they tell you you can approach it any way you like - any combination of sneaking and violence is ok - but once the intro is over, the second you take them at their word and bump someone off, they slap a penalty on your on-screen 'rating' for the level in question. My suggestion is that if you enjoy operating in an atmosphere of hypocritical nitpicking, you take up a career in management rather than playing this game. It will be more profitable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, lightweight, works fine, great battery life, 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For a cheap price you get a phone light enough to carry around without noticing it, with a battery that lasts for days. Not a smart phone obviously, and even texting is a bit clunky, but if what you want is just a phone, this is a good one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great. All kinds of fun., 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really excellent balance of shooting, exploring, collecting, upgrading, platform jumping, cinematic sequences and a bit of mysterious story, in beautifully drawn locations. Ok there's a bit of QTE but you can forgive that.

2.0 out of 5 stars ok but material feels cheap n tacky, so i'll need to get a replacement, 25 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does the job functionally speaking, but compared to another similar tray we have, this one feels cheap and tacky in the material and filling that are underneath the tray - kind of like a nylon sheet. I therefore need to buy a replacement and probably I'll have to do this in an actual shop where I can check the feel of the material. A rare case where buying on amazon turned out to be a disadvantage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy set-up, works well, looks good, 26 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fixing these lights to a wooden headboard takes a few minutes, and connecting them up to the power socket is just a few seconds work once you've read the simple instructions. They look quite stylish in a functional kind of way, and give an extremely good reading light.

4.0 out of 5 stars big improvement on standard gauge garden netting, 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From bitter experience, to keep out cabbage damaging butterflies, you need netting with a mesh at least this small. This one worked well - one or two still got in but I think that was via small gaps at ground level - ie my fault not a netting design problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice picture, put the sound through a stereo if you can, 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good picture quality at a reasonable price. The sound is not that great, but a headphone jack to stereo cable would let you put the sound through your HiFi, which does give the sound more body.

4.0 out of 5 stars puts the tv sound through the hifi, 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for the price. OK it's not wonderful quality cabling, but it routes your TV sound from the headphone socket of your TV into your expensive stereo system, so you do get a richer sound, and at this price who can complain?
