This review is from: WS Silicone oil V100 - 1000 ml
This has worked well as a treadmill lubricant, without paying through the nose at 'fitness' prices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent light output, 28 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are good. An excellent 40w replacement, perhaps a little brighter than those they replaced, with a good warm spectrum. Hope they last, but no doubt LED lights are improving on light output and price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good light output mind, 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly the price, and the reason for 5 stars not 4-can't argue with that. They are bright-brighter than 10w halogen for sure. Some I've left on old halogen transformers along with older lights and you can tell these are brighter.

On a LED driver, you can see there is variation in colour, from warm to brighter. Good light output mind. But comparing to ones at 4x the price bought a few years back, they are not inferior at all. Those older ones have lasted well (lost one in 10 over two years)-and that is where the unknown comes in here, but I was hopeful enough to order more.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hit then miss, 21 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It worked for a time, but after very light use, 18 mths later one channel has gone, and I need a replacement. Also, too much hum on mains, but battery was ok, but not a strong output.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 19 Feb. 2014

Shame I bought these because my son cracked the screen, but these were good covers that do the job perfectly. Use a credit card to flatten while applying and the job is done.

5.0 out of 5 stars For those who complain about quality-you haven't tried the alternatives!, 19 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is great value and a very effective folder. I can tell you, arriving at the same time was a black alternative from elsewhere which cost more, wasn't leather, it's stitching is pulled apart with little effort (i.e during the putting in of the passport), and doesn't fold properly or lay flat-all of which are not issues for this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, everyday+ glasses, 26 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a fan of the very elegant larger glasses of Riedel and others, but broken glasses come at quite a cost. These offer great a alternative to the larger Bordeaux glasses. Still reasonably elegant, good shape, but clearly more robust and excellent value for money (£4.50 each inc. post). Arrived promptly and well packaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really promising, 19 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thought I'd replace standard halogen bulbs including on dimmer. Once I realised that you need at least one standard bulb to draw enough current for the transformer the lights looked bright and fit in well with the lamps. Brighter than the 10w ones they replace. Split thepack across dimmed set and a straight switch to see how they stand up over a few months before committing to more. But as in the title looking promising. Delivery was pretty good given its from HK. Will rate 5 but downgrade if any one of them pops during 2013!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for all wine lovers, 13 Jan. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
:
As a wine lover myself I find it difficult to imagine anyone with a true interest in wine won't find this book fascinating, enjoyable and provoking. It seems wine books like these come along rarely, but when they do they open up wine into such a broad, exciting and absorbing read, helping people to get closer to understanding wine and their own experience with it.
With truly up-to-the-minute topics to cover things for the merely curious to would be winemaker and written in a style to make sure they remain accessible but not dumbed down; there is something for everyone.
The presentation and appearance is excellent, with snap shot sections to cover areas in a drop in style. Indeed, this is book you could read cover to cover, or dip in as curiosity bites you. There's some great photography, but being in B&W means one or two pictures could have been clearer. However, one plus side is the plastic Rosemount cork in amongst the real ones in the picture of traditional corks is well hidden!
I was surprised the ageing wine didn't have it's own section, although it crops up from time to time within other chapters. But any of this is simply looking for something to critique, and it's a book I truly recommend.

There's even a wine-science.com website to accompany the book.
