Brilliant little radio. Neat, attractive and with good reception and good quality sound for such a small device. Highly recommended.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good quality and hard-wearing bag with plenty of capacity for a camera with a telephoto lens, but I have found it so awkward to get the camera in and out - especially as the lid is zipped on the near-side making it hard to access - that I have used the bag only a few times. For me it was a waste of money and I am looking for a more convenient alternative.

I have had these watches for many years and love them. They are so clear to see even in poor light, which is really important for me as I need quite powerful glasses for reading. Their one weakness is that the straps break after a couple of years wear and there doesn't seem to be a way of replacing it. The strap's life can be extended by varying the hole you use to fasten the buckle through. But I've never paid more than £10 for this watch and currently they are available for under £7, so even with the strap issue they represent excellent value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very smart, 14 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really smart looking jug that heats up quickly and pours well without any spillage. Note that the lid is not hinged and detaches from the kettle, which might be a bit irritating, but the spout is just big enough to fill the kettle without opening the lid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just right, 14 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a bit of a monster, which seems to be the current fashion in toasters, but as long as you have plenty of kitchen worktop to accommodate it, it looks smart and works effectively. Can't ask much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plain and simple, 30 Mar. 2011
This review is from: CASABLANCA Outdoor Flush - White
If you want a very plain and unpretentious outside lamp, that's simple to fit and does the job effectively then look no further. We struggled to find anything for our porch that wasn't in either the traditional coach-light or modern security light style, so were very pleased to find this one at a very good price. And although plain, it looks good.


A Hundred Horizons: The Indian Ocean in the Age of Global Empire
A Hundred Horizons: The Indian Ocean in the Age of Global Empire
by Sugata Bose
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.95

3.0 out of 5 stars a little disappointing, 15 Jan. 2011
I found this book interesting as there are some fascinating tales of characters from the Indian sub-continent and their influence on the region, particularly south-east Asia and the middle east. However, these tales stand as individual stories and I got no feel for the Indian Ocean arena as a whole and how it has developed. Indeed many significant countries and islands within that arena are not mentioned at all and many more have no more than a brief reference. I hoped for a concluding chapter that would draw in the missing elements and reach some conclusions for the arena as a whole, but this was sadly lacking. What the book covers is very interesting, but it is more like a series of essays than a unified history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what you would want it to do, 3 July 2010
There's not much you can say about a CD/DVD Drive - if it works and is reasonably priced then you can't ask for much more. This one is reasonably slim and light-weight and has worked fine for me with very simple set-up. It met all my expectations. There are no doubt cheaper ones - but I decided to go for one from a known reputable manufacturer and pay a little more, but still at what i regard as a good price on Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read for first time visitors, 3 July 2010
Books on Ukraine are in short supply. This is an intersting read, to give some background and feel for the country for travellers who have not been there before - by no means essential reading but helpful alongside a phrasebook and a good guidebook.
