Price: £79.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A heavyweight contender that delivers a knock out blow, 3 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
On the plus side, this is one of the best irons I've used in terms of performance, giving excellent results (as long as you allow the steamer to heat up sufficiently) without the need to fiddle around with settings - it's all automatic.

On the downside, it is also one of the heaviest irons I have used - which is the trade off.

So, not recommended for anyone that struggles with wrist/shoulder problems, but highly recommended if you are happy to use a heavier iron and want those crisp creases!


The Murder Bag
The Murder Bag
by Tony Parsons
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £5.00

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag, 3 July 2014
This review is from: The Murder Bag (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I ordered this more out of curiosity than anything. Could this self-confessed 'Basidon intellectual' pull of another reinvention: from punk journo to Late Show stalwart, to tabloid hack to best selling novelist? Truth is, he can, and has made a pretty good, if unoriginal stab (sorry) at it.

But only Tony Parsons could announce his new persona not with a debut crime novel, but with a debut crime SERIES - and 'a landmark new crime series' at that!

Unfortunately, the publishing hype is counter-productive. Had I come to this blind, I might have had lower expectations solidly met, but when the book is being touted as a breakthrough in crime fiction, the endless cliched crime-writing tropes grate. From the 'lone Wolfe' nomenclature, to the well-worn career/family juggling act, the quaintly respectful procedural 'detail', nothing really surprises. There are some well-written passages, but overall it doesn't live up to the billing.

Having said that, it's an entertaining holiday read without too many demands on the reader, and would probably work as yet more TV crime fodder.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide, 17 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A nicely produced and illustrated 200 page pocket-sized guide with lots of information on most of the major tourist attractions - with a decent map and tube guide.and tips on which stations to head for.and phone/web details for all the attractions, cafes, bars, along with many useful tips on where and when to travel.

It does the job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 17 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Gives off a good light.

But will have to come back in 14 years time to confirm longevity!

If it lasts that long it will be well worth the price - and another star.

4.0 out of 5 stars When Wi-Fi isn't an option, 21 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Needed these to connect my Sony TV to my broadband router and works well. Relatively straightforward and gives good enough signal for streaming.

Will connect any device (TV/games machine/laptop) to the home network when wi-fi isn't an option.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased with the quality of the case. Gives good protection and is cut to allow easy access to the control panel by swiping up from the bottom of the screen - another case we tried was cut too close to the screen edge to register the swipe - which got quite annoying! Also gives good, simple, stable positioning at 3 angles (though only in landscape).

Highly recommended.

These pens don't last forever but if, like me, you want to keep a few lying around these offer a good value to durability rating.

Sony MDR-ZX100 Outdoor Headband Headphones - Black
Sony MDR-ZX100 Outdoor Headband Headphones - Black
Offered by Digi Flash
Price: £10.80

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There aren't many genuine bargains around, but these phones @£10 are a real steal.

No volume controls, and shortish cable (but perfectly adequate for use with mobile devices) but the sound/price ration is amazing - as good as I've heard for budget priced headphones and much better than most.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works, 16 Jan 2014
This review is from: Vanish Powerpowder 650 g (Grocery)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It does actually work - providing you leave it long enough before hoovering up. A pet-stained and rather grotty carpet has been restored if not to pristine condition, then at least not something you have to expend energy coming up with diversionary ruses to avert guests eyes from looking down. Quite expensive but saves hiring a full-blown carpet cleaning session just for the odd 'spillage'.

4.0 out of 5 stars It Fits ..., 16 Jan 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Yes. It fits and gives off a good light - i.e. around 50W EQV - but I will have to return in 25 yrs to review longevity.

Experience with 'long-life' bulbs leads me to take advertised claim with pinch of salt - but, if it can last a quarter of that time it will have been worth the outlay.
