4.0 out of 5 stars Impressed, 30 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was very skeptical about this as previous attempts with electric razors had ended with severe skin burn and rash. Have been using this as a dry razor for just over a week and nothing but good; no rash, no burn. Impressed.
Thought I would try it as a wet razor today and cannot notice any perceptible difference. So wondering if there is any need to have both wet and dry?
Would recommend.
Anyone want a half used can of shaving gel?

4.0 out of 5 stars A very useful guide to get you going, 28 Sep 2014
Can't really add anything new to other reviews but would reiterate that it is much better to buy the book rather than the Kindle edition as you will need to refer to other pages to make sense of what is being said (difficult with Kindle) and it is much better than the instruction manual supplied by Canon.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good!, 28 Sep 2014
Only had it for a week and taken a few pictures, certainly better than my 1000D.
A couple of minor niggles that purchasers should be aware of.
Whilst it has Wifi; if like me you run on a Windows 'phone/tablet there is no app. It is only compatible with Andriod and Apple.
Also if like me you take photographs in Raw it is certainly not compatible with Adobe Elements 11 (my choice of editing software) so you have to convert files into DNG first to be able to use them (not difficult but a pain). It looks like I will need Elements 13 to be able to see your files directly and having just spent a lot of money on this my senior financial adviser has said no to spending any more!
Certainly a good upgrade from my 1000D.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing, 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was a toss up between this 'phone and the BT 6500.
After looking at both sets of reviews, because I do not have the best of hearing I decided that this was the better option.
Yes the volume of the ring tones and the ear piece are good but my main criticism is that this 'phone is sold as one that will block unwanted calls. This is only partially true. As I understand it this 'phone will only block telephone numbers it will not block "withheld", "unavailable" and other such calls.
So my advice is think very carefully before you buy this 'phone. What is more important the clarity of speech or the need to block calls. It would appear that you cannot have both!


High Quality 52mm TO 58mm STEP UP RING
High Quality 52mm TO 58mm STEP UP RING
Offered by Crooked Imaging
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Mine did not come in a tin!, 9 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unfortunately my Step Up Ring did not come in a tin so I cannot say (like other contributors)
It does what it says on the tin!!
What it is is a sturdy piece of kit that allows me to use 58mm filters on a 52mm lens which saves a fortune in doubling up on filters.
It arrived quickly. Was well packaged.
Will certainly look at this company again when looking for accessories for my camera (especially as I have just had a bad experience with a company in Hong Kong)

3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, 9 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Took 18 days from ordering to delivery.(Inside delivery estimate of a month!)
Well packaged
I have very large hands so this only just fits!
Had to reconfigure the strap to make it work correctly.
Not really impressed. Next time will not consider using company's based in Hong Kong will pay a bit more and use a British company;
You never know Amazon might even pay their taxes here if we all did that!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars The joys of buying on the Internet, 17 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
BE WARNED THESE MATS HAVE THE HEEL PAD ON THE WRONG MAT.
I ordered these mats on Thursday and they arrived on the following Tuesday. They were poorly packaged in a thin clear plastic bag which was ripped, presumably by the carrier. Luckily the mats had not been damaged.
When I tried fitting these mats I assumed that the mat with the heel pad should go in the drivers side well. They did not fit; so I contacted the company as they specifically say "If you cannot leave good feedback then please e-mail us". Some 30 odd e-mails later (hampered by Amazon not allowing you to send e-mails to the supplier via them with photographs to illustrate the problem)they agreed that what in fact had happened was that the heel pad was on the passenger side mat rather than the drivers side mat. To their credit they then arranged for the correct mats to be (made?) by their supplier and sent directly to me at no extra cost.
My advice is if you want new car mats for your Disco and do not want to go through a lot of hassle: look elsewhere
On the other hand if you have a left hand drive Discovery these are definitely for you!


FIAT Punto 99-03 Car Seat Covers Airbag Compatiable protectors Universal
FIAT Punto 99-03 Car Seat Covers Airbag Compatiable protectors Universal
Offered by Extreme Auto Accessories
Price: £19.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Misleading Discription, 11 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered on Thursday arrived the following Thursday. Well packaged.
Be aware that these car seat covers are not specifically for a Fiat Punto (or any other car come to that. They are generic ones that are meant to fit any car, which means they don't really fit and have to be secured with tape or similar. Made of very cheap nylon type material. Interesting to see how much static is produced.
My advice would be to steer clear of these; go down to Halfords or your local Motor Accessories shop and at least you can see what you are getting.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good product that has a few small niggles, 8 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered this product on Thursday, arrived on Monday.
Well packaged.
Comes in its own case.
Very easy to fit and a very good fit. The one problem I can see is that the side panels have no way of securing them to the car (some velcro might sort this out) and the fit around the sides is not quite as good as in the picture; perhaps because of the occasional seats.
Apart from that it looks well made and sturdy.
Value for money? Only just.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the thing for keeping bits and bobs together, 5 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived when they said it would. Packaged well.
Just what is needed to keep those things that tend to get lost in your camera bag together. Price is right as well
