Luxury White Adjustable Wooden MDF Toilet Seat With Chrome Fittings & Hinge
Luxury White Adjustable Wooden MDF Toilet Seat With Chrome Fittings & Hinge
Offered by Stewart and Gibson Ltd
Price: £19.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Robust and great to use, 22 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After being stung by a plethora of cheap, plastic toilet seats, I was after one with metal fittings so that it would hopefully last more than a couple of months. This seat was easy to install and has held firm on the toilet. All in all, would recommend.


Replacement Remote Control For DIGITREX CTF3271A
Replacement Remote Control For DIGITREX CTF3271A
Offered by cherrypickelectronics
Price: £11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, hassle-free, 20 May 2014

Worked absolutely fine straight out of the box. I'd heartily recommend this for the CTF3271A TV - I'm sure other remotes for other models are just as good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent clean, silent operation, 9 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a vacuum cleaner that is hugely underrated. When I first switched the machine on, I was dubious that something operating that quietly was going to deliver the power required to get a good clean, but I was wrong!

The machine does a great job on hard floors as well as carpets and the crevice tools supplied as standard are just fine. The machine is no heavier than expected and wheels about with no problems.

The emptying procedure possibly could have been better thought out, but it's a case of once bitten, twice shy so I won't be getting any dust on myself again (it's not a difficult process, it just didn't work as I'd expected).

All-in-all, a great purchase (and make sure you get the £50 cashback from Bosch - go on their website)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellently executed account - don't bother with the film, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Beautiful Mind (Paperback)
As an economist, I was eager to get stuck into a biography of John Nash and it was a pleasant surprise that there was a nice balance between the more technical details of Nash's work and the biographical detailsof his life, relationships and descent and remission from schizophrenia. Admittedly, it does take a short while to get goind, exploring Nash's parents' backgrounds and his early life, but it's all for a reason.

Nasar does presuppose a limited understanding of mathmatics, and some of the more abstract concepts may have been somewhat lost on me, but that didn't deter me int he slightest. The comprehensive referencing that Naser provides is reassuring that the account will be broadly accurate.

I didn't find the writing unduly flattering to Nash's achievements and indeed, ragarding his personal life it did seem to take a "warts and all" approach, giving the subject the objective respect it undoubtedly deserves. Needless to say, the biography did shed a great deal of light on the enigmatic character that is Nash, and I have re-read the book and have no doubt that I will again in the future.

As for comparisons against the film - I am a big fan of the motion-picture inspired by this biography, but rest assured that it isn't an accurate account of Nash's life and work, merely an entertaining fictionalisation of it.


The Mephisto Club: (Rizzoli & Isles series 6)
The Mephisto Club: (Rizzoli & Isles series 6)
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, but a couple of key questions left outstanding, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a nice change of pace from the previous books in the series. It was tackling a different angle without departing from Gerritsen's deft skill for the gory. I'd say that there was a bit of a preachy theme in one of the sub-plots (which may be resolved in future books, I hope), and a few questions were left unanswered which don't appear to be ripe for exploring in the next book. Nonetheless, it was still an enjoyable read, and I'll be plundering the next book with gusto.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining read, 13 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eye of the Needle (Kindle Edition)
This was a very interesting and engaging read. Whilst I found one or two elements of the plot a tad far-fetched, this didn't at all detract from the overall experience. A couple of the military/historical references made me scratch my head (as in I wasn't sure I could believe they would have happened, were this a true story), but if it was artistic license then it was well used and added to the fabric of the story as a whole.

Overall, a great read and I'd be keen to read more of Follett's work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent budget headphones, 7 Mar. 2010
Some of the reviews have called the build-quality of these headphones into question. All I can say is that I've had mine for about 5 years (maybe more, but either way, it's been a long time!) and they've handled what I've thrown at them (eg moving to uni and back, living in the chaos of my bedroom, falling asleep whilst wearing them etc) really well. I've also had no real issues with comfort, even when I've been wearing glasses.

As for sound quality, obviously there's a noticeable difference when compared with headphones approaching and exceeding £100, but absolute performance is excellent, especially given the price tag. Starting to show their age now, but that's to be expected. Definitely worth buying these if you're not wanting to break the bank.

5.0 out of 5 stars V good spikes for v good price, 26 Sept. 2009

Pretty much everything you could ask for from a sprint spike - robust spikes, good foot support, extremely lightweight and of course good traction. Excellent value for money too. Definitely got no regrets about buying

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but proceed with caution, 14 Nov. 2006
There's no doubting that this is a thorough text excellently written, covering all the main points. The only problem with it is is it's New Keynesian bias. For example, it fleetingly dismisses the Sargent and Wallace Policy ineffectiveness Proposition without really explaining why one might do so, and subsequently does not explore Fisher's critique. Definitely a must for anyone with an interest in macroeconomics, but this should be one of a "portfolio" of texts on the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Buy!, 15 July 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent image quality and unparalleled versatility in this price range. There are so many features on this camera that you wander why the price is so low. 5M pixels may not seem that many, but the image quality, thanks to Canon's lense and sensor technology is exquisite at the lower end of the ISO range (images are noisy at ISO 400).

The 1cm macro isn't a lie- it realy does focus sharply at that range, and the manual focus allows you to manipulate your own shot as well. All in all, a great buy.
