Jacob Jensen Gents Watch Dimension 860
Jacob Jensen Gents Watch Dimension 860
Price: £143.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant... stylish... understated, 23 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I took a bit of a punt, buying a watch purely based on the description and the photograph. But Danish design is absolutely the best. I've owned a Georg Jensen watch before - beautiful design but much more expensive than this. So I opened the package (yesterday) with a mixture of optimism and some anxiety. And.... the watch is beautiful. Elegant... Understated... stylish. If I didn't know the price I would have guessed way, way more.
If you understand good design, if you want a watch that combines simplicity with style, this one comes highly recommended. As you can see, I'm really happy with it. After one day I can't say anything about accuracy (but quartz watches are all accurate) or durability. I'll update this if I have any problems. Otherwise, I'm just going to enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long lasting, 9 May 2015

Great shavers. Long lasting. And not at the rip-off price of some of the better known shavers

5.0 out of 5 stars The cutting edge, 9 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Why is it so difficult to find scissors that cut. My draw is full of useless scissors. So finally I read the Amazon reviews and bought these. I've only had them for a few weeks but so far they are excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars This stuff is amazing, 9 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tastes much better than most stock cubes. And without the artificial ingredients. Lots of other stock cubes contain MSG which gives me a headache. So I need to avoid them. But even before I realised about the headaches I was buying Marigold Bouillon powder because it tastes so good. Not just to make Bouillon but also to flavour soups, stews and lot of other foods. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars It worked fine but didn't fit snuggly into the cigarette lighter socket, 9 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought a cheaper one first. It worked fine but didn't fit snuggly into the cigarette lighter socket. I had to keep putting rubber bands round it to hold it in place. Enough! I've got quite a few Anker products. All have been excellent - first class quality and cheaper than the (overpriced) Apple options or equivalent. This one too. Works perfectly. No problem

5.0 out of 5 stars A very significant improvement, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I live out in the wild Sussex countryside. The broadband signal needs to travel at least 6 miles along poor old copper wire to reach my home. Not surprisingly my broadband speed is pretty slow. My previous modem routers, a Technicolor (recommended by Zen Internet, my ISP) and a Belkin were giving me speeds that sometimes reached 2.8Mbps but often dropped to 1.6Mbps and, maybe just as important, dropped the line pretty frequently. My new Billion Bipac took a week or two to settle down (or maybe my ISP's monitoring system took time to adjust to the new router). Since then I have a consistent 2.8Mbps with no reductions in speed and no significant line drops. The difference is clear.
I'd recommend this modem router very highly, especially to anyone living out in the country and having to cope with long lengths of copper wire between their home and the cabinet

5.0 out of 5 stars Everlasting?, 9 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these first a few years ago after hearing Alistair Cooke on Letter from America (Radio 4). He said he always uses Bic shavers because they last for ever. Unfortunately that's not quite true. They don't last for ever but they do last much longer than any of the Gillette or Wilkinson Sword shavers I have used. And they give a very good shave too. Highly recommended

Great razor. Blades shave well and stay sharp for weeks. Very reasonably priced. Would be nice if it swivelled or flexed as well, hence only 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, 8 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far I have bought two white cables and two black ones. The white ones look similar to standard apple cables. The black cables have a much thicker cable and look much more professional and robust. All are working well. I have had no problems with them (unlike some of the other cheap cables that fell apart or generated a "not charging" message.
