5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended!, 10 Mar. 2015
Compact, yet very sturdy and comfy. Our twin girls have been using these seats for the past two years and I have nothing but prize for them. Isofix system does the job of holding the seats securely in place at all times. Very easy to get the seat in and out with minimum room for error in seat mounting. Once mounted - no wiggle or play in any direction. The seat material is of a very high quality and nice to the touch too. The only issue I would have with the seat is the plastic cover clipped around the tensioner strap tends to come lose. Not a major problem and has no effects on the safety whatsoever. You just need to clip it in with your fingers every now and again. I would suggest to the designers a tighter fit of this particular part going forward. Now the small fella will get upgraded to one of these and the girls will get bigger seats as they are after outgrowing their seats at this stage (only 3 years of age but very tall).

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better., 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good overall but I expected the screen back light to be more uniform. Brighter lines can be seen when the actual LED are placed and other areas do not appear as bright. Surely there are better ways of doing the backlit screens than just putting discrete LED around the frame. Apple would have done a proper job. Otherwise it works great. From an engineering point of view a bit disappointing though. Could have been a much better device in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great kit., 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great kit. Perfect for those little jobs around the house. Battery charges very quickly. For all the professional jobs may not be powerful enough though. I've never used the impact driver before and must say it is handy and powerful enough to drive screws into concrete blocks. Very impressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good case. Not too thick not to thin, 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good case. Not too thick not to thin, just about right with nice feel to it. 8 months into use and other than a few minor scratches at the back it is still in a very good condition. Most importantly my iPhone 5 is still mint underneath.

5.0 out of 5 stars At first I was suspicious as to whether the triangular shape was best for the job but my god was I wrong, 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used this tool to scrape the old paint from door frames. At first I was suspicious as to whether the triangular shape was best for the job but my god was I wrong. Supper tool, very well made, sturdy and takes hard use very well. Did all 5 frames (using heat gun) without a problem. Wooden handle keeps the heat away from the hand as the whole rest of it gets very hot in conjunction with the heatgun. Well worth the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for the price, 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not bad for the price. A bit too slow with EPG and on the turn on but you would get used to it after a while. Picture and sound quality very good. Overall very good value for money. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top oil!, 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Top quality oil in even better price. What more can one say. Good to see alternatives to Castrol and Mobil which btw are far from best oils on the market these days.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor product., 13 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Poor quality product. I purchased this heat gun to remove an old paint from the door frames and staircase in the house I was renovating. It only lasted long enough to do 2.5 frames. After that it would not turn on - common problem with these heat guns it seems. If you want a quality product that you can rely on look elsewhere. Luckily i managed to borrow a Steinel gun and finished the job on time. Much better machine. I've sent it back for refund.

Petronas SYNTIUM 5000 FR - 5W30 Synthetic Motor Oil - 5 L Bottle

5.0 out of 5 stars Castrol and Mobil1 killer, 6 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good oil at good price. Would chose this over Castrol any day. Better quality and prtice. Petronas are well known for their quality base stocks. Glad there is an alternative to other expensive Mobil1 and Castrol. Good idea to get on Amazon Petronas! I hope Petronas will continue their presence here so I and others can get quality oils at ferry good value for next oil changes.

Update after 3k kilometers.
The oil seems to be doing well in the engine of my Honda. No need for topping up so far, it is still honey like in color. I will be buying another can for next oil change soon. At this price it is a no-brainer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best device for my abs., 11 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been very active in a lot of sport and for the past 15 years failed to get my abs to any reasonable shape. I've heard from a friend of mine good things about this but was very skeptical. It arrived quickly and I gave it a try straight away. God it was hard to start with. You need a lot of shoulder strength at the beginning as the initial work should be focused on isolating the core abdominal muscles. After a few weeks of using it (3 times a week) I could really see the benefits - much stronger core, much leaner on the outside. Fantastic tool and yet such simple.
