5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for longer pipe lengths, 15 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fast delivery. Measure carefully, before cutting, and it's easy to fit and looks really good. I white enameled the joints and bends first before fitting between joints/clips. Good price for this amount.

This item is easy to use and worked perfectly on five worktop ends. Cut to just over size with scissors and trim, when cold, with a sharp stanley, or similar, knife.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is "The One", 22 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It arrived this morning (one day after despatch) and I have just used it on two cars. Remarkable - after approx 50 years of washing and polishing cars this is the easiest and best product I have used. Foams easily, smells pleasant and does a very good job. Real value for money compared with shop bought item. TRY IT - you wont be disappointed

5.0 out of 5 stars REALLY GLAD I TOOK THE PLUNGE, 25 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a more mature person I have listened to all the talk about tablet computers but have never bothered to actually find out what they can do. Having read many reviews I decided that the Nextbook Premium 7SE 4GB Capacitive touchscreen Android tablet PC was a cost effective way to remedy this situation.

What a revelation. As someone still using a seven year old Desktop computer running XP this tablet has really opened my eyes. It worked straight out of the box and was WiFi connected, to my internet service provider for browsing and E-mails, within minutes.

So far it does everything that it says on the box and if like me you are a little behind in your computer knowledge I recommend this device as a cost effective way forward. BUY ONE - YOU WON'T REGRET IT

This review is from: Spark Plug RCJ4, BMR7A by Oregon
This spark plug is cheaper than the original proprietary item but so far has done the job perfectly in my Garden Vac/Blower. Time will tell but the early indications are that this is a good buy

5.0 out of 5 stars AVG PC Tuneup 2012, 28 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good product which I have used for the last 12 months without a single problem. All the necessary "house keeping" programs are at your finger tips. My reason for purchasing was that my previous 12 month 1 PC license subscription had expired and I wanted to also use this progam on my wife's laptop.

HOWEVER there are a couple of points that I must mention:-

1) The Cd supplied contained AVG PC Tuneup 2011, Version 26. The latest AVG PC Tuneup 2012 Version 27 has to be downloaded from avg .com.

2) If you have a previous license expired version of AVG PC Tuneup installed on your PC the Uninstall section of the Setup Wizard does not remove the old license number embedded in your Registry so you continue to be informed that "Your subscription has expired, Please renew" and you are not provided with the ablity to register the license number of your new version.

After talking to AVG Support 0800 072 1799 it transpired that you require a link to a "KeyRemover.exe" file "https://share.avg.com/steam/KeyRemover.exe". Running this file removes the outdated License Number from the Registry and the AVG PC Tuneup Home Page > HELP > ABOUT now provides the option "Register New Product".

Despite the above I thoroughly recommend this product

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality item but fitting could be better, 27 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
CHROME 3 TIER STRAIGHT CADDY L46xW25xD12cm Made in Sweden to a high standard

A good quality item which would be enhanced by the inclusion of Qty 4 Chromium Dome Headed Screws in place of the Qty 2 countersunk screws supplied for fitting. Not only do they improve the rigidity of the Shower Caddy they are also provide a superior overall appearance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sony CFDS05 Digital CD Radio Cassette Player, 5 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Sony CFDS05 Digital CD Radio Cassette Player was bought as an update replacement for a Sony CFS-B31 Radio Cassette Player which after 17 years is still producing excellent radio reception although the drive belts for the cassette, not surprisingly, need replacement.

The sound quality, probably due to the smaller speakers, is not quite so good but for the price, which relatively speaking is much cheaper, this is a good buy. The CD player means that this machine is much more versatile.

Acronis True Image Home 2010: Backup and Recovery (PC)
Acronis True Image Home 2010: Backup and Recovery (PC)

3.0 out of 5 stars Some initial problems, 6 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading some not very complimentary reviews I was rather dubious about purchasing this software.

Having installed and registered it I can see why there were some unhappy customers. As reported as soon as you start to install Acronis True Image Home 2010 you are asked if you want to download the latest version(114MB). Having done this you then have to produce a Bootable Media CD which would not run due to "Library Errors". This was cured by logging on to the Acronis website and downloading the Bootable Media ISO file so that you could create another Bootable Media CD which worked.

Once you overcome these problems backups are easy to produce and recovery from them is straight forward.

After about a fortnight FAIL indications, for scheduled tasks, were presented on a daily basis. This was a surprise as I had not scheduled any tasks. Submitting the error event code to the Acronis Knowledge Database was extremely unhelpful. Using Add/Delete Programmes to remove Acronis and downloading the latest version cured this problem at the second attempt (the first download had a missing file).

Seems to be working fine now but I would be much happier if it had worked correctly from day 1.
