Ink Jet Remanufactured Ink Cartridge Replacement for Canon - 525 Black
Ink Jet Remanufactured Ink Cartridge Replacement for Canon - 525 Black
Price: £7.68

5.0 out of 5 stars Refilled generic ink that does the job., 13 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This remanufactured (ie. Refilled) ink cartridge worked perfectly for me. The ink was fine and the same quality as the Canon 525 original that I usually buy. Would buy in future.


Second Nature Adult Turkey & Rice
Second Nature Adult Turkey & Rice
Price: £34.49

5.0 out of 5 stars All natural Turkey and Rice dog food a winner, 13 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Our Jack Russel cross will eat virtually anything so it's hard to review dog food since he seems to like them all. We've only had 2 issues in the past - one had very small kibble which got stuck in his teeth and another one gave him evil farts! No such problems here! He gobbled it down without any problems. It has a good meat to rice ratio and no nasty artificial colourings. It is much lighter (ie less dense) than the usual kibble so having to give slightly more. But otherwise great. And no nasty side effects on the bowels. So two paws up from us!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Iron Jim, but not as we know it!, 6 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fire up the warp drive and set phasers to iron! This iron looks like it comes straight out of a sci-fi movie but I was surprised by how fantastic it was. No style over substance nonsense. We have another steam generator iron (Philips GC6611/30) to compare it to and this one wins hands down.

Pros:
Very quiet when ironing
Light and easy to use
Steam bar pressure is excellent (Steam boost is 330g compared to 120g on my older model)
Much bigger water capacity (2.5l compared to 1.2l)- up to 3.5 hours of ironing!
Optimal Temp technology - no messing about with the dial and trying to get the right temp for cottons and then adjusting for silk. No sorting washing into different piles. Rest directly on the ironing board without burning the cover!
Auto decalc works well.

Negatives (I struggled to find any)
No jug in box to top the water up
A little noisey on recharge

Overall an excellent machine. 5 Thumbs up. Welcome to the future of ironing


Ultranatura Chateau Barbecue Grill Cover
Ultranatura Chateau Barbecue Grill Cover

3.0 out of 5 stars The godzilla of bbq covers!, 6 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Ultranatura BBQ cover is very large and the material is thick enough to withstand the scorching summer sun and the winter snow and rain. It's much too big for my large charcoal barbeque (a large "half barrel" charcoal bbq from B&Q) but fits my smoker perfectly. The sides are tapered slightly and it has a decent drop. I like that it has metal reinforced eye-lets at the bottom and comes with string ties so that you can secure it properly. No having to retrieve your bbq cover from the neighbours yard after a storm! Slight niggle is that the cover I received had a stitching factory fault down the one side. The seam was good but it had been sewn a second time and the threads were loose. Removed them and it looks fine but there are small needle marks which will probably compromise the waterproofing. All in all a decent bbq cover but way to big for anything other than a very large barbeque or a smoker with a chimney.


Panasonic ALL3 Wireless Speaker System (Black)
Panasonic ALL3 Wireless Speaker System (Black)
Offered by TODO! TODO!
Price: £169.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great sound, easy to set up, works perfectly with iPhone and AllPlay radio!, 2 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Panasonic ALL 3 is a standalone wireless speaker system that has excellent sound quality and can be expanded to fill your whole house with music by linking other ALL3 or ALL8 units. The box contains the unit and a quick set up guide, and loose pages about registering the product, using with spotify, wifi security and firmware updates. When I saw that I figured it must be pretty easy to set up. And it was.

Simply plug in and switch on. Connect to it via its wifi - select your home broadband connection, enter in your password and you're done. Now just download the app - I downloaded the Panasonic app and the AllPlay radio app. Fire up the Panasonic app and you can instantly stream any music on your iPhone to the speaker. If you open the AllPlay radio app you can stream 1000s of radio stations from all over the world.

Pros:
Solid build - looks like it can survive a few knocks
Excellent sound quality - crystal clear with nice bass and treble. Better than my LG soundbar.
Very easy to set up and control from iPhone - got it going in minutes
Streaming radio is controlled by your iPhone but streams directly to the device so if you leave the room with your phone in your pocket and enter a wifi dead spot in the garden the unit will continue playing and will seamlessly reconnect with your phone when you're back in range
Ability to expand with multiple speakers

Cons:
Not the most attractive speaker in the world - looks a bit brutish!
Expensive if you were going to invest in several units
A bit more tricky to get to work with music sharing on my PC but that's probably just my lack of experience in this regard

All in all- an excellent speaker system. I am very pleased with this. It's the perfect replacement to my previous medium sized kitchen speaker system that connected to my old iPhone via the standard Apple connector. When I got iPhone 5s with lightning connector it became obsolete and I didn't want to buy a new unit that may also become obsolete if the connectors changed again.


The House of Hidden Mothers

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!, 1 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have read all of Meera Syal's novels and I would say I enjoyed this one the most. Other reviews have given a summary of the plot, which is largely quite predictable. I think the genius of this book is two-fold: the characters and the exploration of belonging and being out of place. The characters are of three generations and from two countries. Having three generations of characters provides the opportunity to explore the immigrant experience from three points of view: the immigrant, the first generation and the second generation. This is further extended by the character, Mala, who is desperate to immigrate. There is a great exploration of why people move, what they give up and what further generations long for later that is subtle and brilliantly done.

Alongside the main plot of an older woman using surrogacy to have a child with her younger partner, are the subplots about Shyama's parents' fight for their flat and her daughter's experiences, which beautifully captures the moment when someone who thought they belonged somewhere suddenly realises they actually belong somewhere else. As a several time immigrant myself, I have not read a novel that captures this so perfectly until now.

I read this on holiday and it was everything I wanted in a holiday book. It was funny, entertaining and thought-provoking and I was actually sorry when I finished it. Thank you, Ms Syal, for a great book!


God is Beautiful: The Aesthetic Experience of the Quran
God is Beautiful: The Aesthetic Experience of the Quran
by Navid Kermani
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £28.24

5.0 out of 5 stars an academic treat, 1 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book, simply put, is beautiful. I was concerned that an academic book operationalising the aesthetics of the Quran would fall short, but this does not. It is very much an academic work and would be appreciated by scholars of religion (obviously of Islam in particular) and Arabic. It is heavy going for anyone with a passing interest in the Quran, or someone who wants a more of a translation-I would say the point of the book is to explain what Muslims describe as the miracle of the Quran. These are the big and small intricacies, beyond the words, that make it beautiful. These are well captured and explored in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Words first mini-epilator for the face!, 8 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Braun Face mini epilator and brush kit is actually pretty good. It comes with a nice carry bag, lighted magnified mirror, and interchangeable epilator and brush heads. Its designed to remove fine hairs from the face - and it certainly works. The size enable you to cover small precise areas like around eyebrows (not to be used for shaping) , tips of ears, upper lip etc and captures even the finest hairs. For an epilator its pretty painless but that's probably due to the hairs being so fine. I felt a light prickling sensation when testing it out. The facial brush is soft and works well to remove makeup . It has 2 direction settings and can be used in the bath or shower. Only thing to bear in mind is that Braun recommends changing the brush head every 3 months for "hygienic reasons" which seems a little too frequent for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super comfy ladies gel insoles!, 8 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These gel insoles are great! I got the gents ones and was so impressed that the wife asked if I could get her ladies ones too!

They are easy to fit to your shoes and super comfy. The gel bit makes for a comfortable fit and cushions you feet without feeling too "bouncy". The upper layer is a non slip material which is breathable and feels like a good shoe should. The insoles are nice and wide and can be cut to size by cutting along the lines at the tip according to your shoe size. Very happy with this product. Comes with a money back guarantee from scholl.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent router but why only 2 LAN ports?, 20 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is all round great router - looks good, super fast, extra long range, easy to install and set up, but loses a star for only having 2 wired ports. I have at least 5 "mission critical" devices that need to be plugged directly into my router including Internet phone, philips hue, smart tv etc. d
