This review is from: Treachery (Kindle Edition)
The book is OK, although I have not finished it book yet, but I would comment on the process of downloading. It was a real pain to download, Amazon said it was “free”, but you have to go through the whole purchase process before Amazon then discount the full cost – but it’s not at all clear that this is what will happen until the last “click”. Amazon should be upfront about what free means.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stylish, 28 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The looks very nice and works very well. Not too noisy and the water level gauge is very easy to see. My only reservation is that the body of the kettle is liable to get scratched (probably common to all kettles of this type) particularly if you are not careful when shoving under a tap to fill. Otherwise, it’s very good and great value.

A couple of months on, I also notice that because I live a very hard water area I am getting several calcium deposits around the lid and spout, which show up against the black of the body colout. I cannot really blame the kettle, and with regular cleaning it continues to look and work OK, but if you do live in a hard water area, you will need to clean the body of the kettle more frequently.

These arrived quickly and are good value. These look good, are good for cleaning the ball or wiping mud off clubs. These also appear to wash well, even when caked in mud.

Quick delivery and very easy to fit

An update - it worked for 3 months, then the little wheel assembly fell apart. So now not so impressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars It Worked - but see my post script on what happened after a months use., 14 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this in desperation as I was trying to re-build an old lap top, but could not find the original Windows operating disks. This arrived on time and worked well, allowing me to complete a “back to basics” re-build. The instructions were not 100% accurate, but I worked my way through OK (not too sure if you could do it if you were a complete novice with PCs). It would have helped if I had been made aware that the disk would not install any drivers.
However, overall it did what it said it would do and was a lot cheaper that getting disks from Microsoft.

There is a post script to this review. After about a month the PC "Blue Screened" and crashed. When restarting a message saying - "This not an official Microsoft version" and part of the start up gave me the option to "Verify this Operating System" - which I did, it was a tortuous process but the PC now appears to work OK. But I will be keeping a close watch on what happens next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 14 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived very quickly and was well packaged. I spent a lot of time researching lap tops and the Lenovo stood out as being very good value for money, with an i5 processor and lots of RAM and memory. It’s used for “heavy domestic” tasks, lots of email, but also web searches and a lot of Microsoft Office tasks – it’s much quicker that the i3 machine I had before. It was easy to set up, so far I am very pleased with it and would recommend it for this type of use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 27 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivered quickly. Looks neat and it's easy to just slot phone in the holder. My only issue was that the box and paperwork makes no reference to removing an inner liner if you want to use the phone with the HTC Dot cover. I contacted Techgear, they were very helpful and told me what to do. Overall a very good and useful product, good value for money as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 20 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived quickly and the packaging was good. It was very easy to install, just two small screws and the door unit slid on very easily. The audio quality is OK (at either end) - it’s not too loud, so good if you are in a communal hall, not so good if the door is next to a busy street. The handset is light and simple to use. My only comment is that the rechargeable batteries for the handset were completely flat when delivered, which was inconvenient as we wanted to test it out ahead of installing the unit. It took a full day to charge up the handset – but once done it all works well for the use it was purchased for. Good value.
