3.0 out of 5 stars Expected Better, 8 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are no 'For want of a better description' belt loops to hold the 'belt' around the waist so as soon as
it is opened it falls to the floor.
It is also rather heavy and rough so has been returned.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT DO "Frequently Bought Together" PLEASE!!!, 21 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
READ FULLY PLEASE
There are plenty of reviews to choose from, please read and decide, I am not in a position to do so as I followed the "Frequently Bought Together" line as
one would to avoid buying the wrong sized staples but the staples "Frequently Bought Together" are tiny and are for a much smaller stapler.
Sorry if my review is 1 star and may reduce the overall score but I am just trying to stop you making the same mistake I did.
There is no way to tell Amazon of their error I can find.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have Just returned it, apparently I have cables in my legs, the air in my house, Everywhere !
Tried on a door, yip wires.
Even if it did work it is dead flimsy and the display is very difficult to see.
Stanley are normally of okay quality but this....
Save yer money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a "Mastech" but a "Sinometer" AC/DC Auto/Manual Range Digital Multimeter, MS8268, 2 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since writing this review it is NOW listed as a Mastech/Sinometer

1st things first it is Not a "Mastech" but a "Sinometer" AC/DC Auto/Manual Range Digital Multimeter, MS8268
But If that doesn't bother you then fire ahead.
It is quite large and stands up nicely on its fold out kick stand, It has a very nice large display although
the backlight stays on for only a few seconds, rather annoying as it has an auto power off!
The continuity tester is also a wee bit annoying as it is not the default notch on the dial and the manufacturer has
decided that you are more lightly to wish to test a diode than check continuity. The audible beep is also not exactly
ear splitting and I found myself glancing at the meter to check it had beeped.
It would be nice, on such a large meter to have a place to store the attachment for testing transistors, capacitors etc.. as these parts can
so easily become lost, there are however two slots on the rear to clip on the probes.
Apart from these initial gripes it seems pretty good , the probes supplied are very nice quality and the
autoranging is certainly worth the extra £4 over the MS8261 as you can switch to manual if you realy feel you need to.
So far on my limited testing, I am happy with this meter and would recomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cadiz Silver Wall Clock, 26 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The radio control works perfectly here in Dublin as born out by the seamless switch to BST last Saturday night.
I love this clock, it has a really quiet tick, is very clear and the time is visible at a glance.
My only little disappointment is the fact that the hands are not perfectly aligned when facing the clock but hey, you can't
expect a Rolex for less than £15.
Highly Recommended

Acctim 74247 Pluto Radio Controlled LCD Wall Clock, Silver

4.0 out of 5 stars Pluto is Clearly Visible, 26 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of the many lcd clocks I have owned down the years, the Acctim Pluto is out on its own.
The display is visible and clear from any angle.
The radio control works perfectly here in Dublin as born out by the seamless switch to BST last Saturday night.
I have it wall mounted an love the casing apart from two very small aesthetic shortfalls,
1. The desktop stand sticks out at the bottom when wall mounted.
2. The Text and digits at the edge of the display are slightly overshadowed by the framing of the case.
Nothing is perfect but this clock is darn close.

1.0 out of 5 stars It Takes Two (At the very least), 3 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good : Nice neat way to pack a single wipe.
Only problem is....

Bad : It takes at least two on a lightly smudged pair of specs.
first one to spread to a smear, second to bring them close to where you were before you began.
third to mke them slightly better than the first.

Not Recommended

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter Rubbish......., 13 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this and a LED Lenser 8403TP P3 Key Ring Torch (Test It Pack) - Black in the same order, the mag wouldn't light the stairway in a doll house..
Seriously check out the equivalent LED Lenser, I promise you there is nooo comparison

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars but for a small shortcoming, 21 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Definitive Sweeney - Complete TV series 1-4, The Sweeney & The Sweeney 2 (18 Discs) [DVD]

Having read most of the 5 star reviews and being in full agreement with the sentiments therein I have one small, very very small issue with this version and I have not seen other versions but I cannot understand why in a digitally restored Definitive version they choose to put 4 episodes on at least one disc which actualy shows the compression by causing fast moving scenes to go blocky like a badly ripped to pc copy.
I know nothing is perfect in life but for the sake of 1 extra disc?
Otherwise Relive this Fantastic Series, Movies and original Regan One off with relish

5.0 out of 5 stars Best pump I've ever used, 18 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very solid construction with a functioning accurate gauge and very tight (no leakage)connector.
I used it today to pump the two small front wheels on a wheelchair and out of 4 pumps tried it was the only one to do the job without leaking or popping off the valve.
It is superb and well worth the cost, I bought it to replace a 'Sakura PG270 Foot Pump Single Cylinder with Gauge' that I bought here a few months ago for £6.99 and regetted as soon as I put weight on it (I gave it a quick review)
You will not regret buying the Laser 4411, it is the Best pump I've ever used.
