5.0 out of 5 stars Good choice, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for a rebuild of my old 32bit general purpose computer to a Windows 7 64bit OS. New motherboard installed with 8gb ram, plus new 500watt PS etc. Couldn't justify spending a lot of money buying an i7 processor for just a general usage computer. Installation of the processor, motherboard and components went without a hitch and everything works fine and speedy,

4.0 out of 5 stars Fair value for the amount paid, 24 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item hadn't arrived after almost two weeks from supplier's confirmation that it had been posted. I phoned the supplier who said a further package would be sent. I received it just two days later. Three of the 10 pens didn't work, but all things considered, including the low price and free postage, not bad value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent antivirus program, 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Intially had difficulty loading the software as it would not accept the undeterminable licence key number enclosed with the CD pack. Had to email the UK office of Bitdefender. A member of its staff responded promptly, sorted out the problem and gave me the correct version of the badly printed number/letters. Bitdefender works fine on my computer although it's rather aggressive and can unfortunately block access to some unharmful legitimate sites. I'm still trying to find out how to resolve the problem.
Overall very pleased with this antivirus program. Much cheaper than other makes and versions and it does the job required very well. I bought it after reading various good reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars Colourful replacement, 25 Sep 2013

Not much to say about it really, Fitted just like the original back. Always putting my 'phone down where I can't find it so the new red coloured back now makes it easier to locate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Novelty lighting only, 25 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's not really an effective lighting source for aquariums more than 30 cm wide, but interesting additional pool lighting effects can be created in the tank. Live plants require more light to grow properly and the purchase of a correct sized fluorescent tube lighting unit would be needed. The led light fitting came with a flat continental two blade fltting and a UK mains adaptor. I consider the adaptor down right dangerous. It was a very sloppy loose fit which meant it could be possible to touch the live terminals. I am sure if BS were aware of this fact the sale of the unit as supplied would be banned. As the led light itself was ok I cut off the end of the cable and replaced the two blade plug with a UK mains plug fitted with a 3amp fuse. The existing plug and adaptor was binned.

Quickly delivered. No difficulty found in replacing the original tube which had split. Suggest wetting the flexible plastic end sleaves with a drop of washing up liquid as it makes it easier to pust over the short hard plastic end pipes on the vac.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quickly delivered. If you are fairly handy its not difficult to replace the existing roller with the new one. Getting the tight drive belt over the shaft is a bit fiddly but once this is done the roller snaps into position and the cover can then be secured back in place. The addional end caps are not required on the Dyson DC07 model.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value, with a proviso, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quickly delivered. The only point I would make is that the male and female SPADE end connectors are smaller than the standard sized ones used in most auto wiring looms. So if you have to replace just one of the FLAT connectors it wont fit to an existing loom connector. It would have been helpful for the supplier to quote the sizes as it would have avoided the need for me to buy some more of the correct standard fitting from elswhere.

This review is from: White Nut Covers x 25
The original caps fitted to the bolt heads securing our conservatory panels degraded in the sunlight and fell off in bits. The new ones fitted snugly Only time will tell if they suffer the same fate. I assume it depends on the type of plastic they are made from. Cheap to buy and have no complaints. Very speedy delivery from the supplier.
