5.0 out of 5 stars Good lock, 20 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very effective looking lock, which should act as a deterrent as much as a lock. Not tested its resilience against a determined thief - but it feels solid enough. Simple code setting - once we had the instructions on how to do it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great - but needed adapting, 7 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is exactly what I was looking for. But I hadn't calculated on how far it would drop down. We don't have very high ceilings and the thing was at eye level using the original fixings. We had to drill holes in the rim and turn the support rods upside down to hook on to a single lockable chain link at the top. It was a gamble whether this would work - as once we'd drilled it, we couldn't send it back. But it's brilliant. It would just be worth highlighting prominently in the description how far it drops down and that, unadapted, it only really suits high ceilings.

1.0 out of 5 stars Truly appalling technology, 4 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
BEWARE - this radio has plenty of fancy features - but don't expect them to last long. I've had mine for about three years and now the all-important screen has stopped working. Without it, you can't do anything - change channels, set an alarm - nothing. I've tried a factory re-set, which made it worse, re-tuning it away from Radio 4 - and now I have no way of getting it back there. It is, therefore, a completely useless piece of junk now. The first thing that went wrong was the battery pack and power usage - it used up brand new batteries in minutes, meaning it had to stay plugged into the mains. So when the screen went, I had an un-portable radio that I couldn't change channels on. Now I can't find Radio 4, I have an un-portable radio with no way of finding the station I want to listen to. I'm going back to Roberts. This very expensive Pure Evoke 3 is one of the worst pieces of technology I have ever bought.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book to change the way you work, 23 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I now understand why some of my efforts at getting projects off the ground have been so ineffective in the past. But I am now ready to revisit one or two of them, but this time using networking to reach the right people. This book is full of highly valuable advice on how to get things done.

5.0 out of 5 stars utterly brilliant, 25 July 2011

This review is from: follow me down (Audio CD)
Sarah Jarosz is a teen genius (now 20). The CD is gorgeous and subtle; live, she's dynamite and full of power. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just trash, 20 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unbelievable. I have just thrown away nine of these utterly miserable and useless CDs in a row. They are incapable of burning more than 2 or 3 songs before being spat out of the PC. Why bother making such trash? Especially aggravating as I thought I was buying the same Verbatim CDs that I had last time which DID mostly work OK. But these white coloured ones, although having exactly the same spec as the silver ones, are a waste of time and money. Avoid at all costs.

1.0 out of 5 stars AVOID, 13 Jun. 2009
Bought this combo in a shop. First toaster broke in two weeks. Replacement broke after a few months. Kettle leaks. One rung above junk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, clever, witty, 20 Aug. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Londonstani (Hardcover)
Wow - What a superb story. The minutely observed manners and behaviour, the dramatic plot twists (the funeral chapter is a stunning piece of work in its own right), and the sharp wit all go to make this a deeply thought-provoking book. To cap it all, the rhythm of the language becomes intoxicating. A funny, moving, challenging novel that deals with a vital social issue.
