5.0 out of 5 stars No reason to deduct a star geat product at the price point, 8 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A generous 5 meter HDMI cable, like what many Hi definition TV and PCs require.
Connects using any standard HDMI interface slot.
Says 'gold plated' but looks 'gold painted' this does however work and we have a superb picture from Blu ray to 42” HD TV so happy bunny for the price a bargain.

3.0 out of 5 stars Once you have the knack grate results., 8 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was looking for a change to my standard cheese grater, one of those square ones that grates you fingers if you get to close to the blades, this looked just the ticket I remember my mum having something similar over 30 years ago, tried and tested so to speak
This arrived and it certainly looks the business, nicely packed but easy to open, good start.
Quick wash as suggested this comes apart easily quickly without fuss and just as easy to reassemble, 3 parts the drum (very sharp) the winding handle and the holder, nice weight as well not too heavy.
Now for some cheese a great test, put the cheese in and the first thing that became apparent is the leverage from the handle when you put the block of cheese in, I needed to cut the cheese in half (not a biggy). Winding the handle easy smooth movement but where's the cheese Stuck in the drum, the biggest design flaw for this product, the drum aperture is quite small (compared to my mums 30 year old grater) and the cheese clogged, now granted I did not hold this on its side, but then I have not had to with my mums. De-clogged take 2 and winding the handle with the drum perpendicular to the bowl that the cheese was to0 go into, and very fine cheese strings Very fine in deed.
The pluses then
easy to use once you great on the side
easy to clean
Dishwasher safe
can grate chocolate and nuts

the minuses
very fine grated cheese
can clog due to the very small drum aperture
leverage can be a bit tricky

Overall a good product but with some reservations but once you have the knack grate results.


Verbatim 52602 LED Candle E14 4.5 Watt 350 lm Light Bulb

5.0 out of 5 stars Fancy a small screw (E14), 3 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This bulb fits a E14 (Small Screw) fitting it is a about the same weight as an standard bulb and given that it is 4.5 W (31 W) equivalent, the size of the bulb is exactly the same size as the incandescent equivalent, this bulb fitting our Living room wall lights nicely.

The good thing though is that the too white a light and too directional curse of older LED bulbs, is not apparent with this model, though this model may be a little ‘whiter’ and to be honest brighter than the bulb it replaces, but overall these bulbs are getting better and better matching their older equivalents for colour very well, this actually blends well with our existing energy saving bulbs.

The brilliant thing as well is that the running costs are a fraction of what a normal bulb and the older style energy bulb is and being LEDs these will last for a very long time, Time enough in theory to recover costs and reap the benefits

5.0 out of 5 stars As robust as any of this type, 27 Nov. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Standard 2 ring binder ideal for course work as robust as any of this type. You just need to buy pocket wallets or have a two hole, hole punch (also available on Amazon) and you have a good student kit.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This bulb fits a Bayonet fitting Bulb it is a little heavier than an standard bulb and given that it is 9 W (60 W) equivalent, the size of the bulb is exactly the same size as the incandescent equivalent, this bulb fitting our Living room ceiling light fitting nicely.

The good thing though is that the too white a light and too directional curse of older LED bulbs, is not apparent with this model, though this model may be a little ‘whiter’ and to be honest brighter than the bulb it replaces, but overall these bulbs are getting better and better matching their older equivalents for colour very well.

No Title Available

2.0 out of 5 stars An expensive placebo, 19 Nov. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When a dietary product is only guaranteed as part of a balanced diet you know the science behind it is flaky at best.

If you want to loose weight then eat a balanced healthy diet 'move more' and 'eat less' then you will loose weight.

There is no quick fix to loosing weight and these are fairly bland capsules of 'raspberry ketone', some people will want to take with water others on their own.

Not much more I can say, in two weeks of trying these but no change in diet not a pound shed.

If these help to give the psychological edge to help kick start a healthier lifestyle all well and good, but don't look at these as anything other than an expensive placebo.
Better to buy a diet book it will probably be cheaper and certainly last longer

5.0 out of 5 stars Feast of Extras, 16 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting documentary about the doors in 1968. The main show is actually quite short if you take out the Hollywood bowl The End then the main show is little more than 1/2 an hour long. But this is not just about the Feast if Friends but the 2hours of extras, the Doors are Open Granada documentary in full mixed film quality and very much a period piece, the Feast of Friends documantry extra and a Canadian TV show version of The End.
Sound quality is excellent for the music sections and well balanced for others. Where film stock is available the Picture Quality is good otherwise the restoration of video stock is good making this about as good as it could be.

Great release for Doors fans.
