4.0 out of 5 stars I like it, well, the wife does, 12 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My wife likes the well made feel of this unit and whilst I would never wish to expose myself to the evidently hideous pain of an epilator the wife will do so - it works but surely it isn't worth it. She also likes the shaver attachment of this set which performs well too. All in all I would say, given her experience the set is probably over-priced and whilst well made the attachments (and there are several of them) aren't really all used all that often - except the razor which prompted my wife to suggest she'd prefer a set with another couple of shaver heads if the first one gets blunt. Still, the build quality is excellent and you do, in that regard get what you would pay for this if you do indeed buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glittery but gets everywhere seemingly, 12 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My daughters love this - creating glittery drawings they spend lots of time using the pens and various other glitter based products and use plenty of paper also. It seems to be something that grabs their attention for a couple of hours which is great when they want to get out but the rain is pouring. So, when the weather isn't that great this is a nice set to have to hand. I am not sure how much longer they will last (they are seemingly pretty low now - the pens that is which my daughters seemingly prefer) but that indicates how much they are used. A nice set which encourages creativity too.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting puzzle for younger children, 12 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Galt Giant Floor Puzzle Farm (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My two year old daughter loves this. The pieces are large and the image colourful and interesting to look at as a consequence of the farm animals all over it. This is a good puzzle and large too, there isn't much to not like!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Audio, 12 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent product from Sony. The sound it produces is deep and rich and not too bass heavy. It looks good too although it isn't flat at the back, it angles out a bit and so you do need a bit of room to ensure you can keep it on the side - it isn't too big but it isn't tiny. It took a little bit more effort to pair with my Ipod but the instructions were fairly clear - it could be simplified to be honest. The CD drive is accessed by putting discs in from the top - it does have a dust guard but place a disc in and some will probably get in. The DAB radio is good too but it should be - the audio performance is good from such a fairly small unit. All in all this is an excellent option for streaming audio. It looks the part, sounds great and is fundamentally easy to use with its remote control (which is nice and small and not a huge bulky thing). You can also download the app and control it via your phone or ipod - I have tried it and it works. Excellent stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as pretty but a better version than the original, 21 May 2014
I have had a few PS3's for various amounts of time and this version is the most ugly of them all. The original slim PS3 still retained the front loading disc drive, inhaling a disc with a smooth, easy action (Alan Partridge would surely approve of such). In its place Sony decided to utilize a spring action lid which moved revealed the drive and to in which you inserted the disc. This simpler, less refined method of disc loading seemed to be regressive to me. However, I have found it less noisy than the previous (more aesthetically pleasing disc drive) and so in the end I have to conclude it is an improvement.

Beyond this the PS3 is very familiar to previous versions and the 500gb drive large enough to contain plenty of data. All in all the PS3 remains an excellent gaming platform although with the PS4 now here its days seem likely to be numbered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple cutlery, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This four piece set of cutlery offers a simple design but frankly it doesn't need to be particularly fancy. A nice clean stainless steel finish, these are certainly well made cutlery and I would recommend them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a vast improvement on my current router, 21 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have to say I hoped for improved speeds from this Home Hub but despite its easy, out of the box setup (which is a particular boon) I just haven't been bowled over in terms of performance. Whilst perhaps an element of this is my own expectation just not being matched it isn't quite up to the level I hoped it would be. If you get one of these as part of a BT package I suspect you may be rather impressed (particularly if you live in a city) but for me it is not quite as impressive as I hoped it might be.

That being said, I have to say it feels a well made unit and is easy to set up. These are big positives for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple solution to screen scratching, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are excellent value for money given what they offer. My ipod touch is clear of scratches because these screen protectors offer exactly what I need. No more do I need to cringe if I put my keys into my pocket without thinking. They aren't indestructible but they offer a very cheap and easy method of protecting that expensive gadget. A must have.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slim and punchy, 21 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The desktop is apparently on the decline. But Lenovo have several versions of desktop and this H535 is nice example of why I think they still have a role to play. The chassis is slim and rather nice to look at with its brushed finish. It is also rather powerful despite its size with 1tb of hard drive space and 6gb of ram. This unit comes alone so you need a monitor to plug it into. It has HDMI so can allow you to utilize high definition.

The H535 screams of high build quality and feels weighty but not heavy. However, despite its perfectly acceptable power for running photo editing software and office it does struggle with games (but in truth it isn't a gaming rig). Upgrading isn't easy either due to the slim-line nature of the chassis you are left with a fairly limited number of options for upgrading graphics (and of course the PSU as a consequence).

One of the most frustrating things here is that the H535 provides HDMI which is great, but only has a DVDRW drive - it would have been very nice if it came fitted with a Blu-ray drive to make the most of this. At this price point we know the PS4 and Xbox 1 can offer Blu-ray playing capability so its a little difficult to understand why a Blu-ray drive wasn't included here.

All in all this a nice, space saving desktop. It would do a very nice job in the right set of circumstances. If you are looking for a simple unit to provide you the ability to surf the internet, word process, photo edit (and even video edit) along with a bit of low level gaming (Football Manager anyone?) then this is a machine I'd recommend. It is a little pricey but its very well built, looks great and isn't particularly space hungry. There is a lot to like here but there could have been more if the specification was a little bit more generous.


Finish Power and Pure All-in-One (Pack of One, Total 50 Tablets)
Finish Power and Pure All-in-One (Pack of One, Total 50 Tablets)
Price: £8.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Finish purer than ever, 21 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Finish claim this is the most 'pure' version of their dishwasher tablets. That is good news, because as useful as a dishwasher can be, the fact remains that chemicals are used to clean the drinking and eating utensils we use as a family. With more natural ingredients then is performance flawed? Not on the evidence of my use. However, as 'pure' as these tablets may be, they still contain ingredients that are harmful to humans. Whether it is possible to have great finish cleaning from tablets made from things that don't warrant the large black and orange warning symbol on the back of the bag remains to be seen. But one thing is for sure, Finish should be applauded for moving in this direction and I hope that they keep along this path. Performance is not any noticeably different so they are still able to produce quality products.
