Rubbish product. Bought for an elderly person with arthritic hands. The on/off switch only worked when on, the batteries had to be removed to switch it off. The lid remained stuck in the mechanism.

5.0 out of 5 stars It also has Bluetooth, 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I bought this last year it was a good buy for an excellent product. It was specifically bought for an iPod. I have MP3 files on my new Xperia that I wanted to play on the Sony RDP but there is no compatible jack for this new phone. Then I realised that it had bluetooth. Pairing the devices is simplicity itself. There is no streaming lag, or data interruption both music and podcasts played seamlessly with fantastic tone, range and depth. I can't recommend this player highly enough.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sharp bristles, 3 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The brush is stylish and was bought to replace an old one. The bristles were 'sharp' which I thought would wear away with age - it hasn't. So after a couple of months use i shall donate it to a charity shop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Traditional shave, 16 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent brush as a gift for my 31 year old son who has suddenly seen the benefits of a wet shave with a traditional brush. This brush is 'funky' with it's acrylic handle and fabulous badger hair. The seller was absolutely first rate and got the brush to him within 24 hours.

4.0 out of 5 stars For any contractor and specification writer, 3 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For those who haven't done a course in products, processes and design this book is a must. Where one sees the expression "continuous improvement" this explains in pithy, interesting shorthand where it originates from (Toyota) and how it has developed and been applied to almost anything and everything in business. A really good book. Thoroughly recommended for anyone who has anything do with quality - read it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, 3 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to say that I read most of the reviews for all the scanners available on Amazon to find the one that could deliver the quality I wanted for large format 1948 negatives. This one had the closest to the best reviews. It does a very good job on the negatives that come in all sizes and in various states of repair. Not all the negs fit into the frames that come with the scanner, but I was happy that a large number did fit into the holder. Every now and again you do have to check the image scanned is the same as the negative. I have had to change to 'scan all' as opposed to frames view and manually select the image. It is great that it has this function. For the money it is a very good buy for most hobbyists and aspiring professionals. It is plug and play out of the box. One can learn the advanced features in slower time. Recommended

1.0 out of 5 stars The Life of Civil Servant, 22 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Chain of Cities (Hardcover)
The author achieved great heights within the Service and is very well connected and endorsed by those who know him. I bought the book in the hope that there would be some revelation about Rhodesia and Lancaster House. Unfortunately, by his own admission, he spent only a short time with this brief. Therefore there was little to reveal about the British position and it's rebel colony that isn't already in the public domain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once I have them (bourgeousie), I can then discuss getting rid of them..., 1 Feb. 2011

A wonderfully incisive piece of work that covers the intricacies and details of Yemeni feudalism and tribalism. I only wish that the book had been published (and that I read it) before working in Saudi Arabia. For any expat or contract worker this is a MUST.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not delivered, 2 May 2010

One click has rave reviews. After 3 weeks of not arriving I cancelled the order. I used the Royal Mail service as it was free. I would opt for a more secure delivery if it is business critical.

This review is from: Coming Up Easy (MP3 Download)
Brilliant track (pencil full of lead). A great track for lifting one's mood. If you are over 40 look up the artists' profile, you'll be surprised.
