4.0 out of 5 stars Classy smartphone for a budget price, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It has a huge screen and high res display- minimalist design and still classy. Without too much manufacturer software or restricting brand stuff its almost a 'non brand phone'.It handles facebook and other apps really smoothly, and being sim free you get to choose whichever network is best for you. I really like it! sound quality is good for calls. Its a bit bigger in the hand that some other phones but its a good feel in the hand. My last phone was outdated in less than 6 months but this feels like it could be a keeper for a long time!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good ambient cd, 6 Jun 2013

This review is from: The Best Of (Audio CD)
Death in Vegas is enjoyable but I usually have it on in the background rather than listen to it. I like rock and songs with performers who have virtuosic moments. It does come close to incidental music for movies where mood is more important than message. Me and my brothers do have a soft spot for Iggy Pop and 'Aisha' ..and they made me like Liam Gallagher for just one song ('Scorpio Rising').

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid follow up to Steeple, 6 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fain (Audio CD)
No real changes to their modus operandi.. 70s rock influenced by English folk music, this time with the merest hints of funk music creeping in.'Steeple' was more striking as its the first album I listened to, but they have lost none of their talent or musicality. Wolf People have a stronger identity than a lot of other British heavy rock bands right now and more interesting.. A rewarding listen!

4.0 out of 5 stars coffe grinder, 8 Jan 2013

works well, and one of the cheapest on amazon- makes really good coffee! Easy to clean and makes up to 5-6 strong cups in a single grinding. Well worth it

3.0 out of 5 stars Functional, inexpensive item, 8 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
nice price functional guitar strap, but the actual coarse weave of the actual strap does itch against the neck. Wear a shirt with a collar and you dont notice, but a t shirt will irritate.

2.0 out of 5 stars noisy rotary motor for flame effect, 8 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
the fire heats well and is an attractive design but the flame effect rotisserie lets the fire down badly. It makes a regular ticking noise that cant be ignored. And the pifco website doesn't seem to work- no response when we inquired about spare parts to fix it. Buyer beware..

4.0 out of 5 stars functional and hard wearing, 8 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
the file is a nice size for feet - maybe a bit too big for fingernails. Its quickly softens tough patches of skin with a few strokes but has a tendency to bend along its length. But because its metal its easy to bend back. The only downside is it tends to hang onto nail/skin dust meaning the file has to be cleaned often to keep it abrasive. I have used a kitchen dustpan brush but an old toothbrush would do just as good a job. If I lost this file I'd buy another- no hesitation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun slides- not just for kids.., 23 Oct 2012
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these for physiotherapy use in strengthening adductor muscles in the thighs. Physoitherapy slide boards costing maybe fifty times as much as these- the carpet skates are amazing value!

Only two points I would make- hoover any carpets before using them- a tiny chipping really scratched up the sole- its fairly soft plastic.
Also, to make them slicker on my own carpet I rubbed a candle on the sole and it made them run much smoother on my short pile carpet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the NHS physio.., 16 Oct 2012
The book is well written, graphically pleasing on the eye and informative.
Although you will have to do a lot of flicking back and forth between the relevant sections, and probably write some notes, due diligence will be rewarded.
I suffered a groin strain also and tore some muscles in my thigh from martial atrs.
I saw the local physio at the NHS hospital and they gave me one or two exercises to improve strength, with little or no guidelines on progression or a timeline for recovery.
This book gave me at least 16 basic exercises, then another dozen intermediate exercises to do.It also gave some guidelines on how to get back to full strength. If you are careful and methodical and pay due regard to what your own body is telling you then this book will really help.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful :-), 18 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a cheap and simple phone and I got it! Too many disappointing touch screen smart phone crashes and I wanted something foolproof. The dual sim and sim free feature was great. I teamed an expensive 02 uk contract sim with a lycamobile sim (for overseas calls to the girlfriend) and it really works well. Some of the menus to choose a number from one sim to send a message on the other are a bit long and tedious but works just fine.Bright screen and loud enough sound reception for me.
Word of warning- the music player only likes mp3 and wont deal with microsoft wav files. All in all a good phone.
