Amazon Basics Stick ball pen (Black) - 10 pack
Amazon Basics Stick ball pen (Black) - 10 pack

4.0 out of 5 stars SMOOTH TO WRITE WITH AMAZON BASICS BALLPOINT PEN, 13 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
They arrive in a nondescript cardboard box and the ballpoint pens have Amazon Basics written on them, they are what they are after all.

The pens are about the same diameter and are the same height as a particular named brand I will not mention, but instead of being six sided they are round. They also appear to carry the same amount of ink. The pen top/cap fits ok but can easily be dislodged, in fact the cap fits better and is less likely to fall off when you put the cap at the back of the pen while you write. There are no grippy areas for your fingers, just smooth plastic but that is fairly normal for basic ballpoint pens.

They write very smoothly and there appears to be no build up of excess ink around the ball point so there are unlikely to be any blobs of ink that smear while you write. The ballpoint really does have a smooth action on the paper.

All in all a decent but basic ballpoint pen but loses one star because the cap/top lacks a positive fit and is easy to dislodge. However, how many of us lose the top of the pen anyway so it is not a deal breaker. Might be nice to have a more cheerful colour of plastic instead of grey.

SODIAL(R) NEW Red Circular Pendant Collar Puppy Led Safety Night Light Pet Dog Collar
Offered by angemart1999
Price: £1.14

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but the spring clip is a little weak., 12 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Decent enough product though the clip spring fastener can be a little weak. The central button switches it between always on and the flashing modes.It is bright too.

Shame it took almost a month and a half to arrive as it was to be used for attaching to the dog collars on our nightly walks in the park. Now it is lighter in the evenings they are a little redundant. Still there is always next year.

5.0 out of 5 stars NEVER USED ANYTHING ELSE SINCE I DISCOVERED THIS, 12 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Haven't used anything else to add water proofing/repellency to my Paramo waterproofs. First wash in Nikwax Tec Wash and then wash again in TX.Direct. The water beading properties of this product are phenomenal and it lasts.

A superior water proofing product.

5.0 out of 5 stars AS GOOD TODAY AS WHEN THEY WERE FIRST RELEASED, 12 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All the films in one place, the older films have been enhanced for Blu-ray and the result is excellent. Yes, the older films have a little grain to them which is to be expected when you consider how long ago the early ones were made.

I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark all those years ago in the cinema and it is as good a film then as it is now. My children have now discovered they films and they love them. Could there be just one more film in the series, Harrison Ford are you listening?

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value and a decent product, 12 Feb. 2016

Product arrived on time and in good order. They fit into the chalk bags we use for climbing without issue and the chalk is of good quality. Chalk is chalk and can be messy but the gauze bag keeps it from going everywhere. Good value for a decent product.

This review is from: Jack Pyke Trigger Lock (Misc.)
Added layer of security to my rifle, stops the trigger being accessible and therefore makes the weapon inoperable. Great to use when in transit or in the cabinet. No harm in being extra cautious.

This review is from: PHILIPS 22watt Fly Killer Circular
It is a UV tube and it works without a problem. One thing to note is that it was Branded Wemlite and not Philips. I have used Wemlite tubes in the past and have had no problems with them.


Nikwax Tech wash & Polar Proof 1 Litre Twin Pack
Nikwax Tech wash & Polar Proof 1 Litre Twin Pack
Offered by MTW DIRECT
Price: £19.95

5.0 out of 5 stars I'VE USED NOTHING ELSE SINCE I DISCOVERED THIS PRODUCT, 12 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The twin pack of both the Nikwax wash and Polar Proof is cost effective and if you shop around on Amazon you will find it for a decent price.

The Tech wash cleans well, especially when it removed a fat stain on one of my Paramo waterproofs and the Polar proof has given my Paramo fleece excellent water repellency. I use Nikwax TX-direct to re-waterproof my waterproofs and that also adds excellent water beading properties.

Once washed and re-proofed the clothing does tend to have a strong smell of the product on it, it is not unpleasant and wears off in a matter of hours.

I've used nothing else since I discovered these products.

5.0 out of 5 stars RELIABLE AND EFFECTIVE, 12 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When working in my garage I could never get a decent WiFi signal to stream music, probably down to the thickness of the wall and the metal work in that side of the house. The TP-LINK RE450 was easy to set up and within minutes I had excellent signal strength of a full four bars.
I have only extended the signal another 10m or so but it has proved effective and reliable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent enough light bulb, 12 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a lower wattage light bulb to replace a night light. Arrived on time and does the job, though slightly brighter than I expected.
