Green 12ft Replacement Trampoline Surround Pad
Green 12ft Replacement Trampoline Surround Pad
Offered by Howleys Toy Shop
Price: £34.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good protector, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is ok. It fits a 12' trampoline fine and just about covers the 7" springs. You have to pull a draw cord to tighten it as well as clipping elastics to the springs. Easy to fit. I think it will last longer than the original as the material looks long lasting and wipe friendly.

Personally I would have preferred it to be 1/2" to 1" wider but I am probably being picky and it is certainly fit for purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Pump, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Early days but I have installed this into a pond. If you place it in a plant basket and surround by stones (not gravel) it avoids pumping the fish.

I only switch it on for an hour or two a day but need the head to power a stream and a waterfall. I am not sure you could use it continuously. Possibly not. It would also be quite expensive.

This pump does a good job. It replaced a similar 750watt unit and appears to achieve a better flow which I thought was surprising. That unit did the same job for around 10 years, so much better than a standard pond pump in my experience. Those seem to cost up to 10 times as much and only seem to last a few years.

If the stream gets blocked when I am not there then the lower pond can drain and it is good to know the float switch will stop the unit leaving sufficient water for the fish.

Good price, good pump.


Roper Rhodes Neutron Soft Close Toilet Seat White
Roper Rhodes Neutron Soft Close Toilet Seat White
Offered by The Home Store
Price: £24.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleasing item, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well designed toilet seat.

Both the lid and seat can soft close either separately or together.

The fixings result in only two very neat stainless steel feet being visible at the rear. The lid and seat is easily detachable as you can press some little buttons that enable you to lift them clear and this enables easy cleaning. It clicks firmly back into place.

You do need to tighten the fixings quite firmly to secure the unit firmly into position. In my opinion the fixings would fit most toilets as they are very adjustable.

It is comfortable to sit on and nicely shaped. A pleasing purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it, 28 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have some £270 headphones, some £50 and some £20 headphones and have tried numerous more and less expensive ones in shops.

These are well made and comfortable. They sound quite hi fidelity and do bring the music to life.

Although the dark brown ones probably look slightly better, I decided on the silver ones because for me it is more about the sound and these were cheaper.

These must be one of the best value headphones in the price range. They also help screen out outside noise but are not noise cancelling as such.

Probably the best value sound for the cost on the market.

4.0 out of 5 stars Warm although washing changes them., 14 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are lovely snug and warm socks. Ideal for a cold house or a cold bed.

When you wash them they seem to get a bit smaller and possibly thinner. Might be worth getting the size up fro the one you think.

If you have fairly close fitting shoes you will probably not be able to wear these with them.

Also there are three colours here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tablet, 6 Nov 2013
My family and I liked our iPad 4 so much the only problem was sharing it among 5 people so I decided to get another iPad but waited for the "Air" so can now compare side by side.

Weight savings are very noticeable with the Air at 469g compared to the 652g of the iPad 4. That's 28% lighter. The difference feels more pronounced though because in truth the iPad 4 was a tad too heavy. The Air is much more manageable in the hand and feels somehow more like half the weight. The difference is actually between "a little too heavy" and "quite light". The Air is nearly 2mm thinner and whilst this is pleasing I think the weight drop is the more noticeable change.

When working off the same wireless network, same distance away, the Air opens websites slightly quicker, perhaps up to 1 second quicker. That is not a lot but when surfing it speeds things up somewhat. If you stream an HD video then not only does it open faster but the buffer on the Air establishes a greater margin than on the 4. In other words the Air is less likely to stall and more able to stream higher definition content.

The speakers on the Air are noticeably better. They are less tinny in general and have more bass than the 4 although neither are exactly Hi Fi.

The Air looks smaller than previous iPads as when in landscape, the outer upper and lower border is narrower making it 16mm smaller than the iPad 4. Same actual screen size though.

The screen images are the same quality on the Air and the 4. Same screen so not very surprising. I cannot detect a snappier or smoother response, both screens seem to be the same. Cameras appear to be the same also.

About a year ago after much musing and hesitation I bought an iPad 4. This has been in high demand with all family members ever since and is great. The Air is even better and will no doubt get heavy use. If you are wondering about needing a tablet and which one to get I would say that either the 4 or the Air are great tablets and are fun and useful tools. I tend to use MS Windows for general computing but somehow Apple has definitely won me over on the tablet front. I am actually surprised by my own statement at some level. I would recommend you try.

The downsides are the lack of Adobe Flash and camera flash, the ridiculous cost of extra storage and no SD/micro SD slot and the fact that the charger for the Air is not compatible with the 4. Personally I can overlook those issues but for the sake of balance they are worth a mention.

These are my initial impressions and I may add once I have played with the Air some more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Try it, 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was struggling with an itchy flaky scalp and tried all sorts of special shampoos. None worked.

This immediately seemed to sooth and using once or twice per week completely resolves the issues I had.

I suspect that different shampoos will suit different people but I would highly recommend this and it would certainly be worth a try.


Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Leather-Feel Flip Case - Pebble Blue
Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Leather-Feel Flip Case - Pebble Blue
Price: £12.92

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal, 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The back plastic part replaces the back that comes with your phone.

The original phone plastic has a slight metallic look whereas this is a plain blue.

The inside of the flap over piece is like velvet. The flap is just over 1mm thick.

The beauty of this case is that is prevents scratching or pocket dialling but adds very little to the weight or the thickness of the phone.

These are £20 from high street shops so £7.50 on Amazon is a good deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super bright, rather large, rather pleasing, 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a big one. It measures 210mm long by 80mm diameter. Make sure it will fit both in terms of length and also that the diameter is not too large for your light fitting/shade.

It arrives beautifully packed in moulded polystyrene in a box and in a bubble wrap package.

It is a very white, very bright bulb. Seems instant or perhaps I simply cannot tell the difference between super bright and incredibly bright. In a small or medium size room it really is like daylight. I am left wondering how bright the 65 or 85 watt versions must be. This is enough for my rooms.
