5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff - buy it., 7 July 2014
Cut's through mature bracken and thick brambles without difficulty, doesn't weld itself together in the trimmer head and is generally a good thing. Worked well in a bump head 32cc trimmer (use a blade if you intent to cut a lot of bracken though).

5.0 out of 5 stars Really no need to get anything more expensive., 7 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to use and very helpful if you're trying to keep track of your BP. For six months I used it twice a day, kept a diary of food, alcohol, exercise etc and managed to get it down to a healthy level. Showed it to my doctor and he approved of it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me., 7 July 2014
Tried three of them, they all made my e-liquid taste strange, as if the plastic or some other element of the atomizer was leeching into it.

Lots Of 4 X Aa To C Size Cell Battery Holder Converter Adapter Case Switcher
Offered by Hielec(Ship from China)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best C to AA adaptor I've used., 7 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It seems a bit silly to leave a review of something so cheap but these are better than other C to AA adaptors I've bought. They make a more secure enclosure for the battery than the simpler push through type, which in turn ,akes them easier to insert into a radio and better at keeping a stable connection.


Roberts R9928 LW/MW/FM Radio with Large Speaker
Roberts R9928 LW/MW/FM Radio with Large Speaker
Price: £39.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good radio at a good price., 3 July 2014
I've had this radio's little brother, the R9927, for years, was very happy with it but this is so much better. The big speaker makes a big difference, there's about twice the volume and the FM preset tuning is easy and useful. If you're havering between the two, get this, it's well worth the extra few quid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Theif + Bioshock Infinite = Dishonoured, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dishonored (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
One of the tricks the game plays is encouraging you to use stealth, there's a reason for this, if you just blast through killing everything it's very short. Which is a pity because there are many, many inventive ways of killing people. The graphics are nice, kind of being in a detailed watercolour painting, the characters engaging and the plot isn't bed either. Gameplay is challenging, especially the in the first playthrough and the game mechanics work well and are easily picked up. Highly recommended, especially for fps stealth fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't think, just shoot!, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think this is what reviewers mean by "retro shooter" because that's exactly what it is, shoot everything that moves and much that doesn't. The story, such as it is, is told via graphic novel style scenes between chapters but doesn't seem that important because all it's about is the shooting. It looks good, is challenging, especially for a modern game and the mechanics work well. There's no stealth, to the point that there isn't even a crouch option. You can jump but rarely need too, you never interact with anyone, the only humans you encounter, all four of them, are dead or about to be. Even so it's lot's of fun, the only downside is it feels a bit unfinished, it just stops but at the price it's well worth getting and if they ever release a sequel I'll get it straight away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice hat, 3 July 2014
It was slightly to small for my ginorous head but it's a very nice hat, stylish but still casual and the person I passed it onto loves it.
