4.0 out of 5 stars Just right, 21 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have only set this up in our home as we shall shortly be taking it on holiday with us. It seems robust and strong, easy to set up and put away, and compact although a bit heavy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless!, 21 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I tried this with several different sizes of wood, within the set parameters, and after hammering away for a good 15 minutes achieved a few splinters at best. Waste of time and effort!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read!, 21 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite knowing the end result this is still a riveting book dramatising a very important historical event. It does not dumb down history but makes it more readable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid!, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the product looks nice it lasted just ten minutes despite only being used by a slim and light 10 year old. The problem is an extremely weak plastic rod that connects the upright handle to the board. This snapped in no time and I do not understand why a sturdy metal rod is not used to replace this very weak link.
Moreover, as we had taken it to Canada and did not wish to have to carry it all the way back to the UK, I took pictures of the damage as well as bringing back the broken plastic rod. To our disappointment the supplier, Cheerful Bargains Ltd., refused to offer a refund despite being shown the pictures as well as being offered the broken rod as proof of the breakage. They insist on the whole thing being returned which is totally unreasonable bearing in mind the unwieldy nature of the product and the distance and trouble of bringing it back. Avoid the product and avoid the supplier!

1.0 out of 5 stars Too tight!, 18 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The case was far too tight. They suggest that after three or four days of use it will expand but I do not think that would have made a significant difference. Something like this should be pre-stretched anyway. You could certainly not use it with a protective case on the phone. Shame as it is a nice piece of kit.

Very good overview of the situation in Afghanistan. Clear and an easy and interesting read by a diplomat who has served in many different locations.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too small, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought similar sunglasses some 25 years ago and was very pleased to see that Ray Ban had reissued them. However, the circumference of the lenses is materially smaller than the originals and do not therefore suit the average male face.
