4.0 out of 5 stars Good bright light but directional., 8 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The LEDs are all along one side, so you have to be careful how you fit the tube, but it does allow you to point the light where you want it.

A very nice light, the all round LEDs makes the light more even too.

Oase Aquaskim 20 Pond Skimmer

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly clear pond surface, 16 July 2014
Fitted to my pump very easily. When first switched on it looked like it wasn't doing anything, but after excercising some patience it soon showed that it was actually swallowing a lot of surface water and the basket soon filled up with things I didn't know we're there. The basket is easy to empty and clean and since thee are no foam filters involved cleaning takes only a couple of minutes.
Can't fault it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great model, bit of damage, 11 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pola 331020 Castle Ruins (Toy)
Pola models are always good, nicely painted and easy to assemble.

This one was just as good, but there was some damage to the crenellations of the tower (corners) where they were chipped.
It is the reason for the lost star as the big parts that they pack are generally left loose in the box to rattle around and when travelling a long distance (this came from Germany) damage can occur.


Max Value 500Mbps 3 Port Home Plug Adapter
Max Value 500Mbps 3 Port Home Plug Adapter

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent device, 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was a bit nervous buying this as I already had a Home Plug network and was concerned that it might not be compatible.

I needn't have worried though, plugged it in and was online almost as soon as the lights came on. There's a new PC app which found all the devices including my old one.

Great!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great ladder but oh the packaging waste, 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The ladder arrived promptly and in excellent condition, but the amount of packing was frankly shocking.
The ladder was:-
Tied up with string
Covered in bubble wrap
Cased in Amazon cardboard boxes
Wrapped in Amazon grey plastic sheet.

I had more volume in waste material to dispose of than the ladder itself!

Its a ladder! The occasional dink is to be expected in general use and wouldn't have resulted in a return. Please tone this down, the string, cardboard and tape would have been adequate.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lovely shirt, but crazy size, 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When the shirt arrived, I was very disappointed in the size. My wife loves baggy T-shirts so I picked a 2XL to be sure. Although the shirt was labelled as XXL, it was more like a 16.
This is hopeless and typical of a company just out to save money on cloth.

RYDE HEAVY DUTY WALL & GROUND OUTDOOR ANCHOR SECURITY MOTORCYCLE/BIKE/SCOOTER/BICYCLE
Offered by SDE Online

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what its supposed to, 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good product and is supplied with 12mm anchor bolts. I used an 12mm SDS drill to fit them to a wall rather than floor, but the effect is the same. You'd need to remove the wall to remove the anchor point!
They also provide you with small ball bearings to drop into the Hex bolt head to prevent a thief from simply unscrewing the bolt. This is OK if you mount to the ground, but useless if it's to be wall mounted as they simply fall out. (Hence one star off).

4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds good, software a bit iffy, 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This speaker is WiFi and Bluetooth compatible. The sound is good and the setup is "fairly" straightforward.
As with a lot of "Internet of Things" devices, it sets itself up as a WiFi hotspot allowing you to log in and then enter the security settings for your own network. It you have more than one of these then setting up extras is even easier as the units talk to each other and send your WiFi details without you having to enter them again.

There is an app for controlling your music which is well thought out and designed to work neatly on phones or tablets and it has a web portal too where you can view your playlists. (Though only local music if you don't subscribe).
Where the system really takes off is if you subscribe (£5 per month) to their music library service. Playlists across all your devices then synchronise and the music library is really very good and growing all the time. There are some tracks that are not yet available and you either get a preview or nothing, but as it grows it'll improve. They have a £10 streaming service which allows you to keep what you download, but in our connected world, not sure if you really need this as you can even stream to your phone.

The trouble starts (and the reason for the lost star) with the WiFi range. It is not as good as general WiFi products which was disappointing. I had a Pure WiFi radio sitting on one spot in my house for years without issue, placed this in the same spot and it just wouldn't work reliably. Had to send the first one back and the second wasn't much better. Move closer to the router and things do improve, however there are still random crashes of the app and sometimes you have to reset things to get it to play more than one track at a time.

Their support service is very good however. First time I've had a support from someone who actually reads what I type and seems to know the product.

If they continue to upgrade the software it'll get the missing star back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough as old boots, 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent padlock. Very tough with a rugged, but soft protective sleeve around the chain that doesn't damage your paintwork.

You get 5 keys and one has a LED light in it, useful for finding the hole in the dark.

The padlock itself is also shielded in soft rubber, so again no paint damage and with bright yellow colours shows a good security product fitted for would be thieves.
