5.0 out of 5 stars Nice throw - possibly a bit light for winter, 10 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This throw is very luxurious and soft. Perfect for sitting in front of the telly on a cool autumn evening. It feels very nice to the touch and looks good too. Probably a bit thin for winter and could do with being slightly longer (in my opinion). The dog also liked it - he sneaked onto the sofa and curled up on the throw and and refused to budge. An impressive endorsement!

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you would want in an Office Chair!, 10 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent office chair. It is comfortable, easy to assemble, sturdy and well made and adjustable. Offers excellent back support. Perfect for long hours in front of a computer or at a work station.

Pros:
Excellently packaged. Comes in a big box with a serrated front flap that tears open. The box contains the three main bits - the backrest, the seat and the pedestal, along with the bolts, key to screw in the bolts, washers and armrests,
Assembles very easily. I did it in less than 5 minutes and with minimum effort. The wheels pop into the stand, the armrests screw onto the seat, the seat clips onto the base and the backrest slides into the seat... and you're done.
The seat is very comfortable and slightly contoured. The backrest is also very comfortable and has adjustable lockable tilt, or can be left providing flexible support.
The armrests are adjustable up and down and can be made wider apart by sliding them out and screwing them in place again.
Very sturdy and well made.
The wheels glide smoothly and silently.

Cons:
The armrests are a hard plastic and not gel or soft foam, but they are comfortable nonetheless.

I sat in this chair all day yesterday while working on my computer and it was fantastic. Highly recommended and right up there with other premium office chairs.

UPDATE: Have used this chair for the past few weeks now at work and its absolutely fantastic. Everyone in the office is trying to steal it. It really is one of the most comfy office chairs I've ever had.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Outdoor/indoor Xmas lights., 20 Sept. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These Xmas lights are a definite improvement over the ones I got in the supermarket two years ago which only lasted a few weeks. The main advantage is good solid build quality and the fact that there's 10m of cable until the first lights. This means there's plenty of space to run your lead from the last plug indoors to the outside tree. There's plenty of lights packed into the box and I can't wait to try them out properly this Xmas. Time will tell if they last as long as they claim!
Please note: these lights only turn on and don't have any other settings like blink on and off or fade etc. They are actually very bright and perfect for outdoors- lighting up a tree for example. Only uses about 7 watts of energy so won't cost the earth to run.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant but Brutal Mexican Art House Film, 20 Sept. 2014
This review is from: Heli [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Heli is actually quite a good film. The cinematography is fantastic and the acting is great. I would describe it as "art house realism" in that the film is stripped bare of the usual clichéd narrative and music to heighten tension. It's a film about the Mexico of drug cartels, corrupt police and the regular people who get hurt in the way. The film is pretty brutal with a horrendous torture scene that would make Tarantino wince but overall I really found it thought provoking and enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tacwise nails it!, 14 Sept. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm very happy with this nail gun. It's well made, easy to use and does the job well. It's very easy to load and I tested it out with some wooden braiding. You can use it with the soft nose attachment to prevent it from marking soft surfaces or without on harder surfaces. When I used it on the braiding with soft nose attachment the brad nail stood out by a few mm and needed to be made flush with a punch. This tool will be perfect for any light woodwork such as boarding, panelling etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Girls just wanna have fun!, 13 Sept. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Rock Star costume is reminiscent of Cyndi Lauper/Madonna outfits in the early 80's - complete with single glove! My 3 year old niece thought it was great fun and had a ball playing dress up. Its a great idea for a birthday party or Halloween outfit and is very good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Large mosquito net for a double bed!, 13 Sept. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Mosquito net is very big and will easily cover a double bed. It's designed to hang from the ceiling and is 250cm in length. It comes with fixings to attach to the ceiling and has a parting in the middle so can be tucked to the side of the bed when not in use. It comes well packaged - the centre ring collapses in half. Overall I was quite impressed - loses a star because the bottom edge was frayed with some loose threads that will need neatening up. Should keep the mozzies away in summer.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Brighten up your message board! This multipack contains 12 coloured chalks, 12 white chalks and an eraser. Not much to get too excited about. The chalk works, the eraser works. Happy with it and reasonably priced. No complaints!

3.0 out of 5 stars Kibble delicious but too small - keeps getting stuck in dogs teeth!, 13 Sept. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Length:: 3:00 Mins

Jackson reviews Beta Terriers dog food! And while he found it delicious for some or other reason it kept getting stuck in his teeth which has never happened before with any other brand. I think its because the kibble is so small. May be fine for the smaller toy breed of terriers but probably to small for a staffy or larger terrier. So five stars for taste, but two stars for the kibble. Bonus point for the comedy value!

5.0 out of 5 stars Professional Cheese Toasties!, 13 Sept. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The VonShef Contact Grill is a great and multi-functional appliance that can be used to toast sandwiches, and grill all manner of foods including steak and burgers. I tested it out making a humble cheese toastie and then some lamb burgers. It performed magnificently!

Pros:
It heats up fast! You're good to go in a few seconds.
It has a pretty large surface area so can do a couple of steaks or even 4 burgers at once.
The surface is sloped so the fat runs off and is collected in a detachable drip tray.

Cons:
Could be a bit wider. It fits two standard bread slices, but a longish Panini will have to be cut in half.
The electrical chord is only 60 cm long which is a bit short to move it around. When grilling meat it does produce a bit of smoke so I put it on the hob, under the extractor fan and the chord is only just long enough (and the plug is right next to the cooker)

All in all, a perfect and excellently priced multifunctional grill/sandwich maker.
