MANHATTAN - CD / DVD / Blu-ray / Media Storage Shelves - Beech
MANHATTAN - CD / DVD / Blu-ray / Media Storage Shelves - Beech
Offered by Watsons on the Web
Price: £49.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely Designed and relatively easy to put together, 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was so pleased with this I ordered three more. The instructions are clear, but some common sense is needed as some parts are very similar, and when glue is involved, its no simple matter to take things apart and reassemble. I easily managed to assemble it on my own on a workbench with a vice, but either a Workmate or another person helping would do just as well. The unit has to be built up in two or three discrete stages as the glue needs to cure, but whilst dowels are sued, there are steel hardware knock-down parts for the areas that require structural strength. The tools needed are a screwdriver a hammer.

Nice quality product that does the job with paracord just as I required, all at a fair and reasonable price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Spoiled by cheap zips, 11 Jun 2013
These trousers are certainly waterproof in the way goretex is famous for, but is seriously let down by the low wuality of the zip which has a tendency to get trapped by the material overhanging it. This makes it particularly frustrating when trying to put them on in a hurry in a rain shower. The jacket from Berghaus suffers from another frustrating problem which manifests in getting the zip started: on average I have about four attempts before it will engage. I shall avoid Berghaus in future.

Very comfortable and completely waterproof thanks to GoreTex. This is my second pair, and I wear them daily. Thoroughly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Broken Zip, 17 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item had a broken zip rendering it suitable only for the trash. Fortunately it was sufficiently cheap that it didn't seem worth going through all the hassle of trying to return it for a refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely one for your collection, 18 Jan 2013

This review is from: Stop Orders (Paperback)
Even if you think you understand stop orders, take a look at this -- it opened my eyes to possibilities which are now being used in earnest to earn profits, where before I was chalking up consistent losses.


IMAK Finger Sleeve, ideal for sprains & sports injuries
IMAK Finger Sleeve, ideal for sprains & sports injuries
Offered by PC Valet Ltd
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst the cold therapy is admittedly fleeting, the protection afforded by this neoprene sleeve prevent me from suffering pain from even small knocks against my injured little finger in the normal course of life, as well as allowing me to play golf: by rotating the small pad under the finger, it absorbs any shocks transmitted through the shaft to the hand. I wear them all the time, and they do last an impressive amount of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Complete Package, 28 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This represents a complete package, with a container for the phone complete with rubber "bed", and a belt holster with a rotating clip allowing convenient positioning when seated or standing. I have a much more expensive item, but prefer this in daily use. Good value too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 8 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another brilliantly researched piece of work , as I have come to expect from Mark Urban. For the serious reader, rather than those looking for an adventure story. Read in one sitting. I recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Analysis, 11 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the most important, thought provoking books I have read in a long while. I thoroughly commend it to anyone trying to make sense of today's politics, and where western economies/polities might be headed in the coming years, particularly as regards the impact new technologies will increasingly have on reducing the resources available to fund the obese political systems evident in so many western governments today.
