3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok..., 14 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An ok guide but I wouldn't say it is brilliant. Could do with some more maps and some more detailed information regarding the various tourist attractions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good quality, 14 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this guitar for my husband for his birthday. he hasn't played in more than a decade (probably 2) and wanted to get back into it. He used to have an acoustic and an electric but wanted the best of both worlds and I have to say, he has been absolutely thrilled with this guitar. The auto tuner is particularly useful.... so I have been told.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Frames, 14 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The photo does not do these frames justice. They are very good quality and look amazing. They came very well packaged. I'm very pleased with my purchase and would not hesitate to get some other sizes, if there are any. I can certainly see myself purchasing some more of these. They would make very good presents.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap & Good Quality, 7 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The pencils are presented in a tin - particularly useful for keeping them safe. If you feel that the picture on the tin will be the determining factor of whether you channel your inner Leonardo da Vinci or if you simply remain a Joe Soap, then be warned: The picture on the tin is not the same as the product photo. If, however, you feel that practice and more practice and perhaps even a few lessons will help with channelling your ability to draw, sketch and be generally arty, then these pencils are brilliant, especially when you consider the cost!

Only slight niggle was that 2 pencils needed sharpening but hey... what are sharpeners for? Despite the difference in photo (regarding the tin) and the need for sharpening, this is a good value purchase. It might not turn you into Michaelangelo overnight but then not much will.... not even a Mercedes Benz.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality Frame, 7 Mar 2013

This review is from: Aluminium Multi Photo Frame (Toy)
The frame is of a good quality and looks superb. The only slight improvement could be a thicker black mount board, although, one could replace that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mop, 13 Nov 2012
I have a mix of wooden floors and tiles through the house. The floors get mopped a minimum of 3 times a week. The kitchen is mopped daily and so are the bathrooms. So, the op gets a lot of use. My mop is now 2 years old and I find that I replace the sponge 3 to 4 times a year, which is reasonable for the amount of use.

The great thing is that it does not leave puddles of water and you don't feel like you are simply mopping dirt about.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality, 24 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The connections on the Kenwood blender are of a particularly poor quality. Half the time, they do not connect properly or in fact at all. This is the worst hand blender I have owned.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incorrect Item Description, 17 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The item description is unfortunately incorrect. It is a 12ml bottle NOT a 30ml bottle as advertised!!!I would hope to see this rectified as it is miss-selling.

1.0 out of 5 stars Threading on Sealing Cap Hopeless, 10 Aug 2012
I purchased this grinder from Dunelm Mill less than a month ago (unfortunately, I did not keep the receipt - wish I had) because the cap at the bottom keeps on coming loose and dumping salt everywhere. Turns out I am not the only one with this problem. Look at the US Amazon reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Camera, 4 July 2012
Friends of ours have this camera and loaned it to me and I have to say: Wow! Brilliant compact camera. Light and portable and takes pretty good photos considering that it is a compact camera. Having tested it, I do plan to purchase it and will be purchasing it from Amazon. I had looked at purchasing it from [...] as I have an account with them but they are more than £100 expensive than Amazon!!!! Shocking price difference.
