5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional book, 9 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Brutal World (Hardcover)
This is an truly quality book. Whilst I’ve only had time to read the introduction and have a good flick though, I can say that this is a beautifully put together book. It’s filled cover to cover with lovely moody black and white photos of Brutalist buildings with each having a caption to say what and where it is. The book is well made and is a piece of art in itself really. If you like photography and Brutalist \ concrete architecture then you’ll love this book - I share this interest with the author, along with his music taste which sounds identical to mine. Very pleased with it!


Swiss Kubik StartBox Watch Winder In Black Perfect for the Safe
Swiss Kubik StartBox Watch Winder In Black Perfect for the Safe

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but excellent., 1 April 2016
Undoubtedly this is an expensive product and this is the basic model. If you want a cheaper watch winder then you can get them from £70 odd, and I’m sure you could get something pretty good for £150 or so. However I chose this as a starter for my watch collection based on lots of online reading. I’ve had it for over a year now and I can honestly say it’s perfect. It’s for all intents and purposes completely silent so you can have it on your bedside table if you want and the little green light to indicate it’s running can be suppressed so your sleep isn’t disturbed. Watches can be loaded \ unloaded in seconds so you can swap day to evening watch instantly and the design and construction is clean, simple and feels solid and expensive. The batteries last for years without needing to be changed and that also makes it ideal for use in a safe or drawer \ cupboard. My watches all fit with no problem. Highly recommended and I’m saving for a 2nd one. Despite the seemingly current trend on Amazon, I paid full whack for mine and haven’t been asked to write this review by anyone.

Prisoners [DVD] (2013)
Dvd ~ Hugh Jackman
Price: £4.24

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, 29 Mar. 2016
This review is from: Prisoners [DVD] (2013) (DVD)
Fantastically dark film about child abduction in the suburbs. Brilliantl performances by both Jackman and Gyllenhaal, Jackman as the Dad of a missing daughter that begins to take drastic action, and Gyllenhaal as the lone officer investigating the disappearances and managing Jackman. The story is dark and so are the surroundings and this will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat throughout. Great film, I was still thinking about it the next day.

Excellent torch. It's exactly as described, fiercely bright, nice compact size and a nice weight & feel. Rugged construction ensures this will take a beating. Really pleased.

Great little torch, it's tiny, very very bright and of a solid well made rugged metal construction. Easily fits in a pocket and very easy to operate. Perfect for a handbag for the ladies or in a jacket pocket for the lads. The magnetic end is also a great touch and works really well. I carry it everywhere now as it's so much better than using a phone when you need a light unexpectedly. Really really pleased with it and I'll be getting another for the wife. Top product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and easy setup, 10 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very quick and easy to set up, takes about 10 minutes and you're up and running. Nice looking display and it works well. Elec usage is displayed in realtime and you can see what uses the most power as you turn stuff on and off. It's easy to get obsessive I imagine. Either way it certainly makes you think about turning that double oven on earlier than needed as the bar shoots into the orange. Great bit of kit.

Fantastic whisky! Dark caramel in colour and heavily flavoured from aging in sherry barrels. Lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heinz mayonnaise is the best commercial mayonnaise hands down, 14 Sept. 2015
Heinz mayonnaise is the best commercial mayonnaise hands down, it is far superior to Hellman’s offering in taste, texture and look. No big blobs of wobbly white Hellman’s mayonnaise just nice smooth mayo with a slight mustard edge and decent richness. It suddenly seems impossible to find in the supermarkets. Sainsbury’s seems to have stopped selling it & just sell their own or a big wall of Hellman’s and it looks like ASDA & Tesco’s have done the same. Very odd and very annoying.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been excellent but disappointed, 9 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I agree entirely with D. Keeley’s review.

This is a nice keyboard in many respects, it’s compact, the keys feel nice, the illumination works etc. However, my board was also slightly bent \ warped from new and doesn’t sit flat on the desk, the bottom left is slightly raised. Not a huge deal but if you’re going to use this all day long then it’s pretty annoying. I’ve tried slightly twisting it to bend it back in shape & that worked for a while but today it’s back to how it was. Typing is quiet and the keys have a nice resistance and feel to them but they are let down by a noisy “enter” key also you can see line of lights under the keys where the illumination is not contained within the key. The enter key is obviously bigger than the letters but is not held in place as securely as the other keys and is a bit wobbly so it makes a much larger cheap rattle sound when pressed, this lets the quality down. The adjustment rear feet don’t raise the back of the board enough either. I’m not convinced this will be my primary keyboard much longer. If they could sort out these problems then it would be a 5* product. As it is it’s only 2.5 - 3*.
