1.0 out of 5 stars HUGELY DISAPPOINTED, 17 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite the title of my review I must say from the outset that this product is actually very good. I had originally purchased a pair of these socks from a local discount store for just £7. Was really pleased with the quality, however when I tried to put them on they were way to small. My feet simply would not fit in them. So I gave them to my wife who is extremely happy with them. I have size 8 feet, and these were 'supposed' to fit size 7-10. Absolutely no way!!!!! So when I saw them on Amazon I ordered size Large-X-large, knowing they would definitely fit my feet. To my anger and disappointment I was sent Small-Medium (exactly the same size that didn't fit me to start with), even though the invoice showed Large-X-Large. Unfortunately the Amazon Returns process, which is normally excellent will not let me order the larger size. I can only speculate that the larger size is not available, and I was deliberately sent the smaller size. So, sorry Amazon, but I have had to give up on this item I really wanted. HUGELY DISAPPOINTED.

5.0 out of 5 stars Would not go on holiday without this., 28 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for a cruise holiday and it was just perfect. A very handy size, and decent quality, it held everything of importance for myself, and my wife, including 2x passports, medical cards, travel documents, and money, with space left over for much more. The attached wrist strap offers extra security. Not too large, just a nice size. So, it holds everything we need in one place, and keeps it organised. Have used other similar products in the past, which simply were not as good. This is the best I have come across. Would not go on holiday without this now, and would thoroughly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST BEAUTIFUL, 28 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this item as a stocking filler for my wife this Christmas, and I am sure she will be really pleased with it. Small, yes, but not too small. Just the right size in my opinion. Really nice looking, good quality, and good value. I have no doubt it will be a talking point when others see it. It is just beautiful. The photograph shown of it is very accurate. Would thoroughly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... watch for a long time and this appears just perfect. Expensive looking, 28 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have wanted a dress watch for a long time and this appears just perfect. Expensive looking, light weight, and slim. I have small wrists so I am very happy with the size. It would also be a good fit for ladies wrists. For those with larger wrists beware, as this is a small watch and the size will not suit all. A really good buy, at a great price and saving over the RRP. Delivery was super fast. Would thoroughly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, but no instructions., 28 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really good quality product for the price. One of the best I have come across. Slightly disappointing that no instructions for use were included, thus only 4 stars. Was fortunate that I have previous experience of using similar product. So, if you know how to use this product then I would thoroughly recommend it. Used correctly it does give relief for tennis elbow problems.

Very good value bubble wrap bags. This is the second time I have ordered these bags from the same supplier, and as on the previous occasion, delivery was swift, and the bags are of the same quality. Have no hesitation in recommending the product or supplier.

Fast delivery, plug-in and play, and for a great price. Small size makes it inconspicuous. Could not ask for more. Works an absolute treat with my iMac. Would thoroughly recommend product and supplier for Mac users.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could pass as an Apple product, 29 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great looking hub that could pass as an Apple product. The quality and price of this item, in my opinion, cannot be disputed. Delivery was prompt. Packaging and returns/complaint instructions (if required) were excellent. Good weight and build quality. Velcro strips provided to secure the product to a suitable base location also a good idea. Plugged in and used straight away with no problems. The gaps between each port to facilitate odd shaped or sized flash drives are an excellent idea. Would thoroughly recommend the product and the supplier (Anker Direct fulfilled by Amazon).

5.0 out of 5 stars A LITTLE GEM, 16 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A little gem of a camera charm, this item was much better and more substantial than I had expected. Although this item is advertised as 'Ladies' Camera Charm, I actually purchased this for myself. After seeing it my wife now wants one to match!!! It would not look out of place being advertised as unisex. The little crystal on it is placed where you would expect a flash to be. Had been searching for well over 6 months for a suitable camera themed charm, but found so many of the other options to be too flat or insubstantial. Good weight, feel and finish to this item, and delivery was quick. If you are a keen photographer, of whatever gender, and are looking for something like this to wear you will not be disappointed. Excellent value for money compared with the items other suppliers have on offer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Product (IF YOU DO NOT NEED UV LIGHT TO WORK), 25 Aug. 2014
Ordered this item after reading positive reviews, and the fact that it was being offered at such a great price compared to RRP. When it arrived I was initially very pleased. The tower looks well constructed and is pleasant to look at. Another plus point was the low noise from the fan, and within a short period of time I noticed an improvement in air quality. However, now for my concerns. Although the item appears to be very good at clearing the air I have reservations about the UV light element of the tower. The UV light was simply not visible, even in a darkened room. I have some small very UV light items for the purpose of property marking, and the light from them is bright and clearly visible. So, I asked the question to other buyers on Amazon, and received conflicting answers. One buyer told me that the light was just visible in a darkened room, while another told me that the UV light was bright and visible even in daylight. I have no reason to disbelieve either of these buyers, and can only assume that their is a problem with the UV light on a particular batch of this item. To confuse matters I have read where others have contacted Homedics direct, only to be told that the light is not visible. That being the case, it should not be displayed in advertising as visible, and should be mentioned in the accompanying instructions. I would argue that the UV light should be visible, and suspect that the makers are not prepared to accept that this could be a fault in some. The advertising of this item clearly shows the UV light in operation on the front panel, and it is clearly visible. I am fussy about anything I purchase, and believe that everything on a purchase should work as described. Had this item not been fitted with UV light I would have gladly kept it. Despite the fact that this is obviously a very good air purifier (thus the 3 stars), the problem with the UV light, and reluctance on the part of the maker to admit to any problem, leaves me feeling unable to trust in this product. I notice that Argos and Homebase have stopped stocking this item. I have arranged for this item to be returned for a full refund.
